*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 Zenobia when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Zenobia, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Zenobia (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Zenobia), 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 Zenobia.

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

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Zenobia 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 Zenobia

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Zenobia 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 Zenobia

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:

Pulling for Zenobia the FIRE Jabberwock!


Nice damage, should be great against green titans and I’m wondering/ planning on testing effectiveness as a flank to a green tank.


I was lucky enough to pull her this morning. She’s probably going to take my last set of rings ahead of cKhagan.

I see her as am excellent addition to my red Titan team, and as a MN killer in raids.

In defence, I like the potential of an Alex / Rat / Zenobia middle three. Odin and Killhare/Seshat on the wings. That could be quite fun. Maybe too slow for today’s meta but I like to have fun with my defence. This week’s VF tournament has made me long for variety so I want to help contribute to it.


I agree, she will be an interesting hero to use! I cant wait to level her and she will probably get the rings when i have enough!


I made 10 pulls - she was the first. I think she’s Zila’s big sister with great damage. Absolutely delighted.


Pulled her this morning.
I have the fortunate privilege that I also have Jabberwock (at +20). I think Zenobia will pair perfectly with him on a 3-2 raid or war team, and take out the Heimdalls and Mother Norths together.
Only disadvantage is that Zenobia is Average mana, while Jabberwock is Fast. This is compensated by her higher base stats though.
Zenobia will get the rings (if I ever get to 6) and Captain Nemo will have to wait on the bench at 3/70…


I absolutely LOVE her design! Call me a simp, I don’t care


Pulled her this morning myself, and got the excact same thoughts as you do. Can’t wait to pair her togheter with Jabberwock!


Full pic:


I think she stacks up as a great Titan hero, and a decent overall hero. Average speed is a pity with Raids in mind, but Fast would be too quick, and unfair on the Titans. Here’s my review. Thank you!


I know fast is typically better but my average speed red team packs a punch esp when I get to fire them all! BT Falcon Lizzie LadyLoks and then Scarlett for fast. Can’t wait to level her. Not sure who she’d replace just yet. Maybe swap out w lady Loki if there aren’t ailment dealers


Probably falcon or scarlet


Why is no one talking about her? Sad that xnolphod has overshadowed her in terms of popularity


I really wanted squid boy but I’m happy with Zenobia. I wonder how a rainbow defense with Zenobia Lexi rat and karnov would do hahah

Zenobia has synergy with Yang mai, as the mana gain extends 1 more turn for her.


I think it’s probably that Xnolphod is more of a novelty, therefore more to talk about. Not that Zenobia is exactly like Jabberwock, but we’ve seen the basic idea before. The squid is more intriguing at this point. Popularity remains to be seen when they both get regular use.


Both Zenobia and yang mai aren’t levelled yet. Finishing zimkitty. But that would be awesome!

now I just need a yellow hero to alter the board lol!
