:thought_balloon: What do you think of Zekena ?

This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Zekena.

Based on preferences Forum members have expressed, please try to stick mainly to Zekena and not wander off topic too much to other heroes.

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Zekena worth summoning for?

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

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Zekena ?

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

  • Would you give Zekena Fighter Emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

  • What do you think of special?

  • What do you think of Zekena’s character design?

  • If you Summoned Zekena and would like to post your results, please include some thoughts on why you Summoned Zekena, and whether/how you plan to make use of them.*

*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 Zekena when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Zekena, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Zekena (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Zekena), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Legendary Event Hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Legendary 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 1.65% chance of summoning Zekena.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Zekena by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Zekena by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Zekena by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Zekena by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Zekena by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Zekena

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Zekena by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Zekena

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.

He’s going to be an amazing titan hero, and a good all around hero.

His defense down is one of the highest in the game.

Double hit on titan and vs Ludwig.

His card says: “Deals 450% damage to a random different enemy” and the defense down status ailment is added for the target of the second target so unfortunately it will not be useful for Titans as there is no other differeny enemy so it will deal only 300% damage to it, and nothing else :confounded:

I thought I read somewhere that it was tried out in beta and that he did hit the titan twice??

2 Likes

Someone please answer this one!

I’ve tested him in beta and live. If there is only one target he does the second hit on the only target available just like Bjorn.

3 Likes

He still does a double hit with only one available target. Just like Bjorn.

Sorry, I see it in Beta I have tested it and it hit it twice:

So same as this:

So the card is misleading. Or it is a bug.
Should I ask Staff about this ?
As in case they fix this later, then some people will be disappointed.

2 Likes

No this is not a bug, its been like this forever even since Bjorn was released.

This is how it goes

  1. Hit an enemy
  2. Check to see if another target is available, if another is different priority falls on that second target, if no other target exist then
  3. Hit hero again.

If the hero can’t identify a second target that doesn’t mean the special stops. It counts the same hero as a different target. It checks if any other target exists though first.

It’s always worked like this.

Here is a bug thread. when bjorn was released it stated the issue it was closed because the special works as intended.

Baes on the description, it should not hit twice on Titan. If it hits twice, then SG should revise.

My new defdowner agsinst dark Titans. :heart_eyes:

I was at work earlier when the Underwild portal opened today. I distracted myself with checking the new available heroes. I had four coin pulls, supposed to be used only when I have gathered enough for 10 pulls… However, the risk-taker/gambler in me took over and used the four pulls.

…And guess what, the distraction at work was worth it. I got Zekena. Haha. :laughing:

Same here :sunglasses:

Never got rabbit and vivi-c

Another awesome new hero. I put together a review for him here. Thanks.

Same as others, happy with pulling him as i don’t have rabbit or cviv

Review, how long have you had him?

If anybody is curious about it, his second hit against purple is 600% - x1.33 of his standard second hit.
