Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Soroca worth summoning for?

  • Would you use Soroca on Defense? Offense? War? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Soroca ?

  • What heroes would you take when facing Soroca as an opponent?

*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Soroca when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Soroca, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Soroca (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Soroca), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Rare Event Hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Rare Challenge Event Hero?

It’s important to remember that Challenge Event Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Challenge Event Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 33.2% chance of summoning Soroca.

But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.

Some useful insights:

  • 55 times out of 100, you’ll get Soroca by pull 20 (5,200 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Soroca by pull 75 (19,700 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Soroca by pull 115 (30,100 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 45 out of every 100 people won’t get Soroca by the 20th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::zero: times, 446,630 of those players wouldn’t get Soroca * 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Soroca by the 75th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :seven::five: times, 48,675 of those players wouldn’t get Soroca
  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Soroca by the 115th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::one::five: times, 9,710 of those players wouldn’t get Soroca

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:

If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later. :slight_smile:

:thinking: Wondering About Your Personal Situation?

Feel free to discuss your team and roster here, and ask for advice from other Forum members.

If you’d like more extensive advice on sorting out your particular roster, I recommend creating a new thread in #gameplay-help-tactics, and posting screenshots of your hero roster, along with your questions.

Do you see question mark at the end ? :smiley:
As this hero doesn’t do anything else there was no reason for add a poll with 1 option.
I do not want to skip this part, so I have just added a line, when I declare what is the primary reason.
(Few other Gargoyles have similar in the polls)

But if you prefer I can remove this statement.

He wasn’t complaining. He complimented you


100%. I laughed. Glad it was included. It took me a bit to realize why it didn’t have questions. You’re smarter than me.

His sole purpose is dealing damage and he still does that terribly.

One of two gargoyles I pulled with my saved coins. (The other is the other 3*, of course.)

If he be able to reach max potential which he can’t because need many ice tile to be full and not remain many tile, but even if he can he will damage as Valen who have buff and fast mana . What a broken hero and thats reason I pull him so fast :)))

Pulled both 3* and fed them straight away

A quick comparison with Yao will tell you immediately that this guy is worthless.

I think SGG made these 3*'s specials so bad is that they also get that stoneskin, which is bigger thing for 3* as they have much lower HP. This might be technically a passable tank. At least it does something when used in rainbow team.

At first I didn’t read what he does and was like ‘what’s so bad about him? Isn’t he the blue average sudri?’ then I saw that he only hits one target…Nevermind he sucks

Poor man’s Balthazar, this hero is really sad

It’s rich man’s Balthazar because real Balthazar is not behind a paywall


The passive related balance update is now added to the OP.
