About Heroes Gameplay How to increase Hero Power The following four methods increase a hero's Power and their actual effectiveness in battle: 1. Hero Level: Increasing a hero's level increases their talent points and Command. 2. Hero Breakthrough: Performing a breakthrough increases the max level and base attributes of a hero. 3. Hero Upgrade: Upgrading a hero increases the level of all their abilities and increases their talent points. 4. Hero Talent: Spending a hero's talent points activates hero talent buffs and unlocks their abilities. Hero Abilities & Talents 1. Abilities and talents of rallying generals and deputy generals will take effect (Offensive talents will take effect on offence; Defensive talents will take effect on defence; Defence attributes will take effect during defence assistance, but will not take effect when attacking or defending Neutral Buildings such as Elemental Tower), each team will use their own team's heroes and talents. 2. Troops-related active or passive abilities and talents will only take effect in battle; Tapping on development-related abilities and passive talents will cause them to take effect. 3. Hero talent abilities will not affect the Power displayed on the troops panel, but will be reflected in the battle report, the hero talent's Power will be added directly to the hero. Being a general or deputy general does not affect the effect of a talent. 4. Attacking monsters grant you EXP regardless of level. However, upon reaching the breakthrough level (e.g. Lv. 10, 20, 30, etc), a hero is unable to gain EXP and level until they perform a breakthrough. 5. The current maximum level for a hero is 60.
