Level up

The first way to upgrade your heroes’ power is to level them up.

Leveling up heroes cost both gold, hero experience, and at some levels hero’s essence.

To level up a hero, go to the ‘Heroes’ tab and press the hero you wish to level up.

If you have enough gold and hero experience, press ‘Level Up’ and the hero’s level will be increased.

You can hold down the button to level up the selected hero multiple times in a row.

A hero’s level cap is determined by the rarity of the hero.

Ascension

Once your hero reaches its maximum level, you have to ascend it.

Ascending a hero will increase the maximum level it can reach, allowing you to further increase its power by leveling it up more.

Ascending a hero itself also increases the hero’s power significantly.

To ascend a hero, visit the Temple of Ascension in Ranhorn.

Ascending a hero requires copies of the same hero or heroes from the same faction depending on what rarity the hero is.

Below you’ll find the requirements to ascend a hero at every rarity.

Rare Rare Plus (2 copies of the same hero of Rare rarity)

Rare Plus Elite (2 copies of any hero in the same faction of Rare Plus rarity)
