Important Game Concepts

16. Might refers to your overall power. Every gear has its own numerical value which adds up to your Might if equipped. Upgrading your gears also improves your Might.

17. The stars refer to your gear's potential. The higher the stars, the more powerful that gear is. You can increase your gear's star through Promotion in the Forge. Your gear must be at its max level first before it can be promoted to the next star. Promotion also requires Promotion Stones which can be acquired through the Trials and achievements.

18. This is your gear's level. Upgrading your gear increases its level. You can upgrade it to the Forge. Upgrading requires gold and upgrade boosters or other unequipped gears you can fuse.

19. This is your gear's Element. There are three elements in the game: Fire, Nature, and Water. Some events require you to equip gears of certain elements.

20. Talents are passive skills. They give additional stats to your hero or skill. Talents are unlocked on level 6.

21. Skills are your secondary damage source during combat. You can select up to three skills. You can strategize as to what skills you like to combine.

Note: Gear cards come in three rarities. Blue is the most common one. Green is a set card, and it gives Blessings when equipped with another set card. Orange is a legendary gear and is the most powerful.

Tips for New Players

  • Always do the Daily Missions and check for Daily Login Rewards.
  • Use your gold sparingly. In the early levels, monsters are manageable so you should upgrade gears only when necessary. That is unless you are paying to win.
  • Keep your treasure keys for later. Use it to open Epic Chests instead of just the Rare Chests.
  • During combat, use dodge as often as possible to escape damage. Also, keep out of the red circle.
  • After unlocking the auto-play in level 5, you can just sit back and watch your hero do the killing on its own. However, it will not use skills and dodges and may skip some monsters.
  • Aim to get all three crowns per castle. That means you have to kill all monsters, find all treasure, and do it all in at least three minutes.
