A question for whales
I have been playing since launch and have several +10 merges, but all of them are from unlock potential 4 star units. I’ve never merged a 5 star exclusive past 2, and I would like to build a +10 off of their intro banner. I am not necessarily f2p but can I get some advice from some of those who’ve done this before.
About how many orbs did you spend to get your +10? Did you snipe thier color, or just summon all of the stones?
I know that there are variables, like other focus heroes of the same color stone, and how many heroes on the banner. But can I get kind of a ballpark number I would need to save on a regular 3 hero banner all different colors?
I'm not a spender, but if it's numbers you want, you can try looking up statistics for banners on places like reddit or Akariss unit comparison videos (he goes through orb numbers at the end). The number marked "average" is how many orbs you can expect to spend for one copy when you do it a large number of times (the simulators do it thousands of times, but 11 is a large enough number for variance to even itself out a bit).
Brave Redux had no shared colour; if you want a green, try Doorway to Destiny.
I’ve read that on average it requires around 2500 orbs to complete a 5* +10 on an opening banner, although I know some people who’ve been very lucky and done it in around 1000-1200. However I’ve never tried it like this.
In terms of making yourself a 5*+10 my recommendation to you is to save orbs specifically for there banners and hold your nerve for when they come back.
I have 33 5*+10 units, 16 of which are 5* exclusive. The way I managed to get each to +10 is to spend all my orbs on there opening banner, get as many copies as I could and then save save save (money and orbs) until those units are re-run again. This can vary in time depending on whether your unit is a seasonal or legendary or new units. It can also take a few banners to complete it this way but you won’t break the bank to do it.
Popular new units tend to get re-runs fairly quickly (within 2 months of release) and legendary heroes you can always guarantee will come around again you just have to wait for their banner return and save until then. The same with seasonal, they just take longer to return.
I got hector to +10 in 700 orbs i sh*t you not which is very very lucky (i got 2 in on session 3 times xD) , i spent 600 on hrid and only got 1 so....kinda varies as you can see xD it really depends on how many units on the banner and what colour but I'd say 2000 orbs on average from what I've seen
You can spam the summon simulator and get a small idea
