Dungeon and Heroes

Dungeon and Heroes is an online multiplayer mobile game that involves recruiting Heroes to fight for you. There are a number of different Heroes for you to choose from with their own unique spells and talents. Players have to devise their own strategy to pick and upgrade Heroes to come up with a winning combination. However, since there are so many concepts in the game, it can be quite tricky to learn them. Therefore, I have compiled this article to help you out in getting better at the game.

How To Get Legendary Heroes?

This is definitely the single most frequently asked question in the game. Whenever you open the chat you can see new players spamming this question. It is not easy to get legendary heroes at the start if you do not spend any money on the game but it is definitely possible to get them as you level up your account.

The easiest way to get them is by completing the weekly quests. You can find this option on the top right corner of your screen. Quests can vary between spinning wheels, merging equipment, using stamina, smashing dungeons, opening gold chests, etc. The rewards for completing these missions will be diamonds, gold keys, and even legendary Heroes.

Another way to get legendary Heroes and equipment is to open gold chests. The probability of getting a legendary Hero here is less but if you keep opening them you will eventually find a few. If you are lucky you may even get one on your first try! Another bonus if that in some events you will accumulate one platinum coin for each gold chest you open and 100 coins can be exchanged for another legendary Hero!

Purchasing packs in game

If you do not plan on spending money then you will not be able to get legendary Heroes very early but it's still possible later in the game. If you do spend on in-game purchases there are a variety of packs to purchase which will help you get those legendary Heroes in no time! As a bonus try to participate in the facebook events organized by Dungeon & Heroes for surprise gifts.

General Gameplay:

So what do you ideally want to do in the game? The first thing you need to concentrate on is completing your daily tasks. These tasks are found in the icon marked in the image and reset every day. Completing these actions will give you good rewards with very little effort. Fighting the flame dragon will also give you good rewards.

Complete daily quests

Always try to fight in the infinity tower daily till you are unable to win. This will give you rewards for each level completed. However, you need to level up to unlock this. Spin the magic wheel and open chests in the altar for getting items and Heroes. Always check your market for any valuable items to purchase. Try to save your diamonds and spend your gold. Use your diamonds to purchase 10 gold keys as they are cheapest here.

You can also add friends, then claim and send hearts to get 1 silver key for every 10 hearts. Once you reach level 30, you can unlock the statue of Hero. Here you can battle a specific hero each week to get rewards based on your rank. You will also get bonus rewards based on your rank in the arena (hopefully you would have participated in this from the daily tasks).

Adding Friends

Do not use your gold keys, Magic coins or dragon eyes unless absolutely necessary. You can accumulate them to be used in events so that you can get event rewards as well. If the current event is for using gold keys then use all your gold keys at once. This is the best utilization of your assets. Don’t forget to collect your rewards in the end.

Joining a Guild

Joining a guild is important as it will help you grow faster. Join an active guild to get help from your teammates. Once you join the guild you will have to participate in the Expedition and Trial daily for nice rewards. You can also use special guild coins to buy Magic coins and Gold keys in the guild shop. Always buy the daily quota of keys, Magic coins, and Warrior badge. You can then exchange the warrior badge for legendary equipment.

Heroes and Battles

You can go to the world map to complete quests to level up. Each victory in the map gives you experience and materials. This can then be used to upgrade your Heroes. Do not try to level up all Heroes. You only need five Heroes to fight and a couple more to use in special situations. You will not have the resources to upgrade the rest of your Heroes.


You can improve your Heroes by leveling them up, equipping them with items and upgrading their skills. There are three types of Heroes - Strength, Agility, and Intelligence. Each Hero will prefer their own item set which will be suggested by a red dot. Each Hero also has four spells which will be unlocked as he levels up. Pick your Heroes based on these spells.

You will do well with the initial set of Heroes provided so don't worry. You can replace them with legendary Heroes later as they are the most powerful. However, always remember to have one tank (this is a strength hero who is able to sustain a lot of damage without dying), one healer (the priest is a good healer who recovers your team's hp) and the rest for dealing damage (either physical or magical).

My suggestion would be to keep the Defender as a tank, Priest as your healer, Gladiator, Night blade and try to get ArchMage ( you can purchase her using dragon eyes in the dragon eye shop). This would work well for most of the game. Remember to keep upgrading your Hero’s level, equipment and spells.

A balanced lineup

If you are stuck in a level and can’t proceed, you may want to smash dungeons and finish Rift challenges to get enough materials to upgrade your Heroes first. You can also use attack and defense potions present in your inventory to get a little more bonus damage to win close fights. Hope this was helpful and happy gaming!

Questions & Answers

  • In "Dungeon and Heroes," which heroes are better to equip with vitality gear?

    Vitality gear basically gives more health to a hero, which makes them harder to kill. The strength heroes whom you use as tanks to soak up damage need to be equipped with vitality gear. This is especially applicable for the hero who is at the front middle of your lineup. This is the hero who will take all the damage so he must be equipped with vitality gear.

  • How are you supposed to use heavenly essence in Dungeon and Heroes?

    Essence can be used to level up your special item. The special item is the last item present for your hero.

  • What is the optimal distribution of workers at Dungeons and Heroes?

    It depends on the item you need. When upgrading buildings it asks for specific materials and so I allocate the workers so that they collect that material. Once the material requirement changes, I will also change the distribution of workers. Do not try to allocate workers on all materials. Concentrate on 2 materials you are in need of and allocate all workers to collect them.

  • I'm in a guild but I don't receive the rewards from the expeditions even though most of the time I am the highest rank in damage. Do you know why?

    The rewards for the expedition is provided once your clan has cleared an expedition stage(provided in % completed). Once the stage is cleared, all members will receive the rewards mentioned for the expedition stage. It might be that the number of expedition stages cleared by your clan might be less and so you are not getting as many rewards as before.

  • How do you unlock talents for Dungeon and Heroes?

    Talents are unlocked as you upgrade your hero levels. Once unlocked, you can upgrade each talent individually. Hover over the talent to get a popup which says what you need to unlock it.

      @HuGo: That is the speed of the hero. It means that this hero will "attack every 2.9 seconds". So it is better to have this as a lower number so that the hero attacks more often.

      In your picture with the Lance hunter is that wing with 2.9s

      What does it mean and is it better to have heroes with lower or higher number of s?
