Is your Hero ready to command your army to victory? Your Hero plays an essential role in your empire and knowing how to best utilize your Hero is important in the grand scheme of things. Today I want to spend some time with all of you talking about our Heroes and how you can best utilize them to your advantage. However, before we dive into these valuable tips and tricks join me on an exploration of what the inside of our Hero Hall currently looks like.
A Look Inside Your Hero Hall
The Hero Hall has undergone some changes recently with the addition of Hero four. Hero four will be covered more in-depth in another article so for today we will just be doing a quick review of what our Hero Hall currently looks like. Currently, when you open your Hero Hall you will see four heroes.
- Hero One (Max Level 300)– This hero is well known for being more diverse with march boosts, type stats, economy stats, and more. This hero can be utilized by multiple types of players with stats that go well towards many playstyles.
- Hero Two (Max Level 300) This Hero is well known as our attack hero. The focus of stats here is Empire Assault Stats with some march size and poison and debuffs tossed in. This Hero is one that our attackers love to watch but watch out for because at times other heroes will give you more benefit.
- Hero Three (Max Level 300)– Hero Three is well known as a defender and wonder hero. This Hero has gobs of Empire Defender and Wonder Specific stats to help both playstyles be successful.
- Hero Four (Max Level ???)– We currently do not know the max level of this Hero, however, it is one to look out for and probably my favorite Hero right now. This Hero is a type specific hero and with such a big push towards type stats within the game currently, it is essential to keep an eye on this hero as any type of player. However, I will say do not miss out on our Hero Four article that we will have coming out and getting a closer look at the stats that it provides. Some of them are new and worth mentioning.
Tips and Tricks for Gaining Hero XP
Leveling up our Heroes is important to access the skills that give us the stats we need to enter a battle. In order to level up your Heroes you will need two things:
- Hero XP
- Hero Medals
We are not going to cover the cost of Heroes here because we do that in multiple other articles. However, we will cover tips and tricks on gaining Hero XP. When your supply is running short it is important to know other ways that you can level your Hero up. The obvious answer is to do events that contain Hero XP or buy packs. However, if you do not want to buy a pack “just for XP” or need XP NOW then you need to know the tips we are going to cover.
Realtip One: Turn on a Hero XP Boost
This Boost will help boost any earned Hero XP. That means that it does not apply to XP items that are opened from your inventory. However, when you are looking to get XP through different means such as construction, monsters, dead bases, etc this will help to boost the amount you are getting.
Realtip Two: Hit Dead bases
Dead bases especially ones with Dragons are a great way to get Hero XP. Little bit of an extra here though, do not forget to actually send your Hero. If your hero is not there it cannot get the XP. So before you start sending a ton of heroless marches out to “farm XPxp” be sure to remember you need to actually send your Hero.
Realtip Three: Get Hit and Hit
Any battle you engage in with your Hero will give you Hero XP. This means that if you are hitting others your Hero gets XP. If you are getting hit, then your Hero will get XP. Honestly, sometimes I get annoyed by that because I do not want my Hero to get that much XP when I am taking hits but then I get over it.
Realtip Four: Do Construction
Construction is another method in which you can gain Hero XP and it is a great way to get that XP if you are already looking to upgrade your buildings already. Pairing your construction with build events to obtain a higher level stronghold will also help as you can get rewards too.
Realtip Five: Hit Monsters
Hitting monsters is another way that you can gain Hero XP. This is a great way to get this XP and another method that is great to pair with already existing Kill Monster Events to amp up the rewards you are getting.
Realtip Six: Craft Gear
This tip is useful and not useful all at the same time. For players who are at a lower level forge crafting gear will still give XP. However, somewhere between level 70 and 90 the forge stops giving Hero XP when crafting gear. So this tip is best utilized early on in the game when you are looking to get those initial levels up.
Realtip Seven: Complete Quests
Alliance, Daily, and VIP quests all provide Hero XP. This is one of my favorite methods to obtain the XP I need when I cannot add XP from items.
Note: Medals can be obtained in various events and packs. Keep an eye on events to see which medals they are providing and whether or not those are medals you need.
Utilizing your Hero to its Fullest Potential
There are two tips I am going to cover here. When it comes down to it, choosing your hero for combat and skilling are things that will always be on the table. However, there are two things that I really want to hone in on here to help you guys use your Heroes to their fullest potential.
Realtip One: Use Your Hero as a Source of Loyalty
Every other hour you will see a Hero XP event in the Dragon Dimension. This event gives loyalty at tier 3 and to complete it at this time you only need to gain 30 million Hero XP. This event is going to be a huge source of Loyalty which is essential to help you keep moving forward and gaining items you need to be successful.
Two typical things I encounter here is when players cannot complete this event because they are “stuck.”
Problem One: Cin I am stuck because I do not have medals and cannot add any more XP
Solution: This is where the tips above come into play and are even more essential. Even if you are “stuck” those are methods you can still use to gain Hero XP so that you can hit these events.
Problem Two: But Cin my Hero is Maxed.
Solution: Ermm… So this is a problem I do not have… #trap… however, I have talked to some of my favorite maxed players to confirm and you can still gain XP using the methods I listed above even if you are in fact maxed on that Hero.
Realtip Two: Use your Hero as a source of Hero Energy
If you have not noticed every time you level up your Hero your Energy bar refills. This is the stuff you need to hit monsters. When it comes to Monster events and you are running out of energy this is an easy way to get more. However, remember that unless you have a Hero Energy Carryover item for that hero every time you level you will lose what you have not used. If you cannot level your Hero or your Hero is maxed then you just have to depend on time and Hero Energy items. So make sure that you stay aware of this and level with this in mind.
