I have Seshat at 2/33 yet her special is the minimum it can be for second tier at 2. I exclusively fed her in groups of 10, and all purple heroes only yet not once has the special leveled up (that is important info since if fed one at a time it would be very likely to not level up).
I am not really complaining, thats RNG for ya, however that is a lot of feeders to get there (over 55k worth of experience!)
What is the highest level hero you have seen with a super low special?
Just FYI… Mathematically, feeding one at a time is just as likely to level up her special over time. There’s more variability that way, but the expected time to max is the same doing it one at a time or in batches of 10.
I had Joon close to the same point before he got his first one. But I know he’ll hit max soon enough!
I should’ve taken a screen shot of it, but I just maxed out Hisan and the special skill was only at 4/8.
I saved ten 2* and over heroes to feed all in a row.
Now that I have Hisan maxed each 1* hero gives a 10% chance to level. so now i’m saving my greens to quickly max him.
However, if you feed one at a time, you also have a slight chance that you’ll end up with multiple skill increases within ten heroes, whereas if you only feed 10 at a time, that batch of 10 can only give you +1 skill. It works out that all in all, they average out to be about the same.
Worst I’ve seen was also a 4/8 on a 3* hero at 3-50. But fortunately, this was after the change that lets you guarantee a +1 if you use 10 1* feeders.
The BEST of my own personal experience: Quintus to 5/8 and he’s Lvl 1-47.
I agree 100% with Fizban. You have a slightly better chance when feeding one at a time, because you can level up multiple times using the same number of heroes. Occasionally you get lucky and level the same hero’s special 2x in a row.
I’m not really sure where Patrickcw is getting the idea that feeding them one at a time has a lower chance than 10 at a time…
It’s been a long time since I had a math class, but I’m pretty sure 10 x 2% is the same as 1 x 20%. Unless something has changed since my school days with “new math” and all. Entirely possible, kids these days do their homework on ipads, in my day we used stone tablets.
The expected time to max is exactly the same either way. You are correct that the odds of leveling up EXACTLY once is 18.3% in your scenario. But you could level up twice…or three times…or even ten times. (Well not ten because it stops at 8!)
If you feed ten 1* heros, you have a 20% chance of leveling up the special. Do that 5 times and you EXPECT to level up once. You might not level at all… You might level more than once. But you expect to level once.
If you feed single 1* heros, you have a 2% chance. Do that 50 times and you EXPECT to level up once. Again, it might happen more or less, but that’s what you expect.
In both cases, you used fifty 1* heros to expect one level up of the special.
Ah, okay. That is one class I didn’t take, and one that still baffles me. The whole flipping a coin thing, 50% heads vs. 50% tails. So flipping the coin 100 times is supposed to, on average, land 50 times on each (but usually doesn’t follow exactly due to margin of error). So in that case… is the coin 49% likely to land on heads and 51% tails, or vice versa? Or is that a case where probability doesn’t apply?
