|Or: How many summons are needed to get an Epic 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 17.5% chance of summoning Wren.
But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.
Some useful insights:
- 69 times out of 100, you’ll get Wren by pull 20 (5,200 gems)
- 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Wren by pull 156 (46,800 gems)
- 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Wren by pull 240 (62,400 gems)
Putting that in Perspective
- 31 out of every 100 people won’t get Wren by the 20th pull
- If 1 Million players each summoned times, 309,196 of those players wouldn’t get Wren
- 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Wren by the 156th pull
- If 1 Million players each summoned times, 56,280 of those players wouldn’t get Wren
- 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Wren by the 240th pull
- If 1 Million players each summoned times, 10,013 of those players wouldn’t get Wren
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.

He will shine in buff booster tourneys!
I don’t understand the wording of the special skill. Does it hit one and if it has a buff hit another? Can someone word it differently for me please?
You need to target a enemy with buff for additional hits.
If you hit a enemy with buffs, then it hits another enemy with buff, and this continues until all enemies are hit once or if there are enemies without buff, then after all enemies with buffs are hit, then an additional hit is done on a random enemy without buffs is done.
It is working like Finley.
He is broken… if you hit regular enemy when farming, then he should do his initial hit and then a random hit because no enemy has a buff, but he doesn’t. He just does his initial hit and then stops.
Isn’t this the opposite of how it works…
IF the initial target has buffs THEN target another randomly
IF that target has buffs THEN target another randomly
My understanding is that if the target has a buff then he’ll hit another, but if the target doesn’t have a buff then he’ll stop
Based on the hero card if the target has no buff, then there is NO more hit:
So the behavior what you have described is expected.
- with BUFF in the end of your sentence.
If there is no more enemy with buffs then 1 more additional his is performed if there is an non hit enemy without buffs.
No, read the card…
If none of the other enemies have buffs, targets a random enemy.
It’s pretty straight forward
Picked up Wren with my free pull from completing the event. Up next on the level list once I (finally) finish Melendor. Will be great for my war depth in green where I am weakest and also looking forward to use in tournaments. Have a stack of Ranger emblems sitting about too so will be able to get her pretty high
If i could be bothered i would record a fight, but I’m a lazy ■■■ !!
Sorry, I forgot to write the NO here:
Card doesn’t say that though…
“If the target has buffs and is hit, targets another enemy with buffs. If none of the other enemies have buffs, targets a random enemy.”
That says he will target a random enemy, if none of the others have buffs.
Right, so I read it correctly then…for a change. No buff no extra hit
Lol, no… i can keep posting the text, it didn’t change the meaning…
If the target has buffs and is hit, targets another enemy with buffs. If none of the other enemies have buffs, targets a random enemy.
That description clearly says “other enemies”, which means after the initial hit, so if no “other” enemies have buffs, he hits a “other” random enemy.
Either his skill is wrong or the English needs correcting.
It should say… if no other enemies have buffs, then no additional enemies are hit
But your missing IF the target has a buff which then follows the extra hits.
