Your second hero is unlocked during the second level of the Lower Toskyr map “The Bleakwood’. The third hero is unlocked after completing the level ‘colony of the damned’ which is the 18th level of the Lower Toskyr map.
How Do I Equip Items/Spells?
Once in the ‘Equip’ menu option, you will be able to view your heroes and all their available armor and spell slots.
Clicking on the piece of armor or spell will enable you to see all the items of that kind.On the top left hand corner you will see the class requirement of the item.
If you have new items, a badge will appear on the item slot.
What Are Substances and Elixirs?
Substances are used in ‘Crafting’ when upgrading items or spells. Each item/spell upgrade requires a different combination of substances as well as a gold payment. Substances can be acquired as dungeon rewards, salvaging or as a reward from the secret item box.
Elixirs are potions which grant certain benefits when used in dungeons. Elixirs can be acquired as dungeon rewards, secret item box rewards or purchased in an emerald bundle. After equipping your elixirs upon entering a dungeon, one of each type may be used at any point in the dungeon for an added advantage, which may be especially helpful for hard mode!
How Does Crafting Work? (Upgrading and Salvaging)
Crafting has two components, upgrading and salvaging.
Upgrading means that you can upgrade spells without upgrade points and also upgrade your weapons and armor, for a fee of course! Upgrading improves the damage of weapons and spells as well as increasing the armor rating and stats of armor pieces. Each item/spell upgrade has a specific requirement of substances and a gold fee. For more information on stats, please see Item, Weapon and Spell Statistics.
Salvaging turns your unused items into substances to use in upgrading your more important items! Salvaging also costs a small gold fee.
How Should I Use Upgrade & Unlock points?
When leveling up, you are either rewarded an upgrade point or an unlock point. Unlock points are used to unlock new spells and upgrade points are used to improve the damage/benefits of existing spells!
What Does the Rating Level of Weapons and Armor Represent?
The rating level of weapons and armor can be found on the bottom left corner of the item image and also in the item description. These levels indicate the how the stats of an item compare to other items in the game of the same slot and class requirement. Basically, these levels represent how good an item is!
What are the Advantages of Playing Hard Mode?
Hard mode is the same dungeon, but obviously harder. Hard mode offers a chance for more experienced players to unlock all of the skulls on the map and unlock the achievement ‘Guardian of the Empire’.
If you are having trouble completing hard mode, try completing all levels on normal first and returning with better gear - elixirs help too!
What are Scrolls?
Scrolls are used to enter dungeons. If you run out of scrolls you must wait for them to regenerate or your can ask your friends to send you some as a gift. For those who can’t wait to keep fighting, Scrolls can be purchased with emeralds from the Shop!
While runes and elements seem similar, they are slightly different.
Runes are what you make your matches from, their colour corresponds with different spells and each match of that colour adds to your spell bar so that when it is full, a spell can be cast.
Elements are the type or class of enemies/dungeons and the type of damage of certain spells. Some spells are more effective against certain types of foes and some are not as strong.
Much like item level, item/spell rarity indicates how good an item is but also how rare it is in the game, or how likely it is to be rewarded.
Rarity is indicated by the following icons:
C - common
UC - uncommon
R - rare
E - exotic
L - Legendary (these are the most rare and therefore, the most Powerful !)
