:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get an Underwild Epic Hero?

It’s important to remember that Season 4 Underwild Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Season 4 Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 13.7% chance of summoning Zila Lei.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 36 times out of 100, you’ll get Zila Lei by pull 30
  • 59 times out of 100, you’ll get Zila Lei by pull 60
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Zila Lei by pull 203
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Zila Lei by pull 314

Putting that in Perspective

  • 64 out of every 100 people won’t get Zila Lei by the 30th pull.

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 30 times, 640,000 of those players wouldn’t get Zila Lei.

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Zila Lei by the 203rd pull.

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 203 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Zila Lei.

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these 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:

Got this guy, seams awesome , small jabber :stuck_out_tongue:

She seems solid, except for the fact that we already have 2 blue 4* that do def down - Grimm and Kiril costume. I realize she’s slightly faster, but I’m wondering what’s the advantage of using her?

1 Like

3, Frank from Halloween is also blue.
But you can pair her for example with grimm and get deff down at the whole team, or pair her with other fast blue snipers (sonja, Triton) to kill the wings.
I got her and she is my blue level project, don’t have mats for 5* at the moment.


Right, I forgot about Frank because I don’t have him. But even my Grimms doesn’t get much use these days with costume Kiril. I see her benefit for playing more offensively, I just wish that we got some more variety in terms of specials.

I’m thinking of using her on titans, because she hits decently and is a fast defence debuffer. Is it worth replacing isarnia for her?

Nope. The effect lasts only 3 turns (Isarnia’s 6 turnes), defence debuf is weaker (34% vs 44%), and tile damage is weaker… At least I wouldn’t. :slight_smile:


How many times will she fire at fast vs Isarnia at slow?


Maybe some jabberwock owners can advise, but she could have a lot of potential on raid formations.

On reverse or reverse double the wings are in the front line. Hitting them with Def down could be quite handy.

Mrs the Bard pulled her and I think she’s pretty decent


If this is for titans, I’m not sure it’s that big of a deal. I use Isarnia for titans and those 6 turns give Isarnia a pretty decent chance of charging again.

Couple that with her massive attack stat and larger defense drop and I don’t see Zila Lei replacing her.


Like @IgH says, for titans it doesn’t really matter, the speed of mana generation. You can always use mana potions if needed.
My next blue 5* will probably be Isarnia, for titans primarily, and rush attack format. :slight_smile:

I am going to agree, strongly agree. Mana speed on titans is less of an issue because of potions.
S1 heroes have a lot of six turn durations, that is amazing. Finding newer heroes with four turns now feels like a huge win.

So Isarnia, feed her potions once and she should be good for the rest of the titan fight. She should charge within six turns.

Zila Lei will be good on titans for newer players, she hits hard when there is a single target and the defense debuff is helpful (“Is she more helpful than a harpoon plus another hero with massive tile damage” would be the question to ask since her attack stat is rather meh).

4* Tournaments & Events should be good for her. When raiding and doing battle with mostly 4* heroes, she should be very, very good.
Hitting the heroes in the corner can sometimes be tricky and she will help dig them out and soften them up for a sniper. She looks useful.

I will max her because I think she will serve very well in 4* environments. She is well above average and can fit into a variety of teams because she plays well with others.


I got this lady today after doing multiple pulls and receiving other dupes, I like her and she is my current project.

oh and I realised, I have 298 rogue emblems I have no one to give, so she can have them woohoo.
(Well Peters could have them but i never use him, I prefer Hansel)

I got octopus lady after a single pull so I’m happy. She’s like a 4* Jabberwocky. Pretty good for tourneys. Will get maxed asap.

Good day everyone :beach_umbrella::city_sunset:

Zila Rei is like a 4 star Jabberwock in many ways however w/out all those bells and whistles of Jabberwock. Since the specials vary somewhat are you aware of better types of heros to bring w/ Zila Lei?

Mine is at 60 now growing into full 70 soon. My understanding from YouTube video gamers is that she can readily fit in w/ 5 star teams on offense. Whether wars, raids or in events she has an “A” grade from many of top E&P players.

I’m thinking might work best with
Attack all hero
Maybe a Healer
& idk? Maybe attack 3 hero

I am thinking Fast or Very Fast HEROS would be best suited w/ Zila Lei if in normal play, not Rush nor Buff.

I think these specials would work perfectly w/ her:
Mana control
Elemental Defense down
Mana boost
Increase mana?
Increase attack

Which heros & or specials do you think is a solid fit w/ Zila Lei? Do you have her or want to pull her?

Thank you for any insights.


So does her defence down stack with standard defence down?

1 Like

Her defense down is normal, so it will overwrite others and vice versa. The amount is the same as Tiburtus and other defense down heroes. So you can use them together to increase damage or use her as your defense down attacker.

Synergies will most likely be snipers or hit-5 heroes.


Hi @SNE :wave:

I needed to be more clear in an above thread to the post, (plus edited it to reflect…) “Elemental” Defense Down is one I think would work in good synergy w/ Zila Lei.

Examples of defenses which stack;
Normal def. down +Elemental def. down:
Zila Lei w/ Guardian Falcon hits red defenses
Zila w/ Guardian Jackal hits yellow defenses

Zila Lei will not stack w/
Etc type heros lacking an element defense down.

It seemed that you may want that information.
Hopefully you find it useful.


She is better version of jobby in 4*… -34 Defense down is really got than DOT… she is best suited with snipers for kill shot and heavy hitters mixing her with elemental defense down(jackal,falcon,almur)… I even pair her with mist so far i won 24/1 win lose ration in current tournament with this ongoing tournament
