Please include some comments about what you think of Vanda when posting Summon Results.

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

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

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 4.9% chance of summoning a particular Seasonal Legendary Hero.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 39 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by pull 100
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by pull 598
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by pull 919

Putting that in Perspective

  • 61 out of every 100 people won’t get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 610,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Seasonal Legendary Hero

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get the specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by the 598th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 598 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Seasonal Legendary Hero

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these two 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:

Id love to pull her, she will complement perctly my Grazul and Garnet :heart: :fire:


I´m gonna simp for Vanda tbh :rofl:

One more Grave, Telluria, Vela counter, protect against status ailment and steal healling at Very fast speed. They really want to get out this guys.

Ok, don’t like her hair at all. What the hell is that supposed to be (all you snarky types, please don’t answer ‘a bat’)? And that facial expression?

Still would use her if I’d get her obviously, since her abilities are pretty good, but this is one of worse designs around here (though at least it is not that bland as ninjas, who can be told apart only based on color code).

I will gladly take some! I don’t have Grazul so this would be a good compromise.

Whilst I would have preferred her ailment block and healing steal to have remained at 3 turns duration, I can see how oppressive that could have been at very fast and she’s still a very good hero in this current form, even if she stands in Grazul’s shadow. As someone who doesn’t own Grazul, she’d make an amazing addition to my raiding team. :pray:

Plus, it’s Halloween! I mean, that’s reason enough to want her.

Aiming for Francine. But if I got Vanda, I don’t think I will lvl her up for awhile as I have Grazul and Garnet. And she is the weakest of 3.
But I don’t mind to get it. Probably not a forever bench Hero.

Vanda is much more useful than Grazul. Especially if you have Garnet.

Wow between Gefjon and Vanda, SO MANY TELLURIA COUNTERS hitting the market!!! amazing! the business analyst in me loves this. Lol if only I needed these heroes more than a car.

Honestly, they should buff Telluria simply so that it can be fun and challenging to use these new heroes.

Vanda looks amazing though, the art, the skills, the speed, the using of sorc blems. She would stack ridiculously well with most reds too, layering her anti-heal onto of a burn dot, whoah.


Her special is similar to Bai Yeong in that it lacks synergy. It’s a weak hit all and it is unlikely that both a heal on opposition and status ailment protection will occur during the same 2 turns. Being very fast makes up for that somewhat I suppose, but if you have to hold her special to get the most out of it then she might as well be fast or average in theory. It’ll be interesting to see how she does.


So I just pulled her with my second token, was hoping for Francine, but hey it’s better than the nothing I usually get :smiley: Trying to make up my mind about her, I guess we’ll see… Too bad she doesn’t have Extra dmg against Nature though :frowning:


Same here! Especially since I’ve had Grazul at 3/70 for ages? And she still seems to be the better bet with the mana help? o: So i’m not sure which red to ascend?

Early to say, and I haven’t got Grazul, haven’t had the time to use Vanda yet either though. But now that I’ve given a thought to Vanda, I think that very fast Health steal is pretty great since it affects the whole team. Also Cleansers heal first then cleanse, so it doesn’t matter who you’re battling, it steals over half of the hp anyway. Except C.Rigard, Aeron… Also in field aid you get to steal that hp too. At least with Victor so, I’m pretty sure it’s the same with Vanda.


Woah, it steals field aid aid health too?! That’s been bothering me in wars lately, so if Vanda can help with this alone, i will definitely think about giving her the ascension mats over Grazul for this alone :smiley:

Vanda is sorcerer class, and hits all at very fast speed- so if you emblem her up, you have a decent chance of significantly dropping the mana generation of an enemy or two early in the match. Chance = ~ 50% for one enemy, ~17% for two per fire.


A very fast heroe with 774 of attack. Just this makes me fall in LOVE… and I am a woman! Must be her vampire attribute.
With her very fast stealing health to all ennemies, one almost useless skill becomes quite dificult to handle. My Rigard willl become overworked. Again and again.
With my luck, Banda Will be impossible for me.


Very true, i didn’t think of that really? I’m tempted now to scrap embleming Almur and instead throw them all on Vanda, could be quite fun :smiley:

Sad to see her get nerfed but understand. Pulled her on my 6th EHT this morning! Pumped!
