The theme of the Springvale heroes is recklessness — big damage, accompanied with a non-dispellable defense debuff on themselves. What do you think of this balancing effect?
Avoiding Overspending & Heartache
Or: How many summons are needed to get Jack O’Hare?
Special thanks to @Garanwyn for assistance on summoning odds and proofreading for this section.
It’s important to remember that Seasonal Event Heroes have extremely low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Seasonal Event Hero.
On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 27.8% chance of summoning Jack O’Hare.
But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.
Some useful insights:
- 50 times out of 100, you’ll get Jack O’Hare by pull 21
- 96 times out of 100, you’ll get Jack O’Hare by pull 100
- 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Jack O’Hare by pull 140
Putting that in Perspective
- 50 out of every 100 people won’t get Jack O’Hare by the 21st pull
- If 1 Million players each summoned 21 times, 500,000 of those players wouldn’t get Jack O’Hare
- 4 out of every 100 people won’t get Jack O’Hare by the 100th pull
- If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 40,000 of those players wouldn’t get Jack O’Hare
- 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Jack O’Hare by the 140th pull
- If 1 Million players each summoned 140 times, 10,000 of those players wouldn’t get Jack O’Hare
More Insights & Reading
I highly recommend reading these two threads for more information and context on summoning odds:
- How much should I spend?- HotM cost, and odds, analysis
- What exactly is a Gacha? (Read before posting things about “unfair pulls”)
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.
Epic Hero Tokens Can Be Used for Seasonal Summoning
The Seasonal Summons replaces the regular Epic Hero Summons.
Because of that, unlike Challenge Event Summons, the Summoning Portal for Seasonal Events allows using saved up Epic Hero Tokens that can otherwise normally only be used for Epic Hero Summons.
That makes Seasonal Events the only place you can currently use Epic Hero Tokens for a chance at non-Season 1 heroes.
Generally speaking, many people don’t regard Springvale as the best Seasonal Event heroes to use tokens for — but you may feel differently. For more discussion on this, see: What is the best Seasonal Summons?
You’ll also have the same chance at the HOTM as usual when using Epic Hero Tokens. For more on that, see Anzogh – New April 2019 HOTM (Hero of the Month): First Thoughts & Discussion.

Once those discussions have yielded notable insights, I encourage others to make reference guides in #player-guides that synopsize specific questions and answers about Jack O’Hare.

Creating a guide is a good way to make that information findable in the future without having to read through a ton of posts. You can make use of the Forum quote feature to avoid having to rewrite explanations that have already been well written.
