Just another question from another curious player and i dont know if i could actually have learned this from the game but how do i exactly know if the damage a skill inflicts is physical damage or magic damage?

Mother of dragons

From what i know, only Intelligent hero deals magic, and agillity and tank deal physical, which is why if you check intelligent heroes atributes have magic resistance, tank and agillity have physical resistance

Hello, can you explain me what means union ? (why some is yes and other no I don’t get it)

Daekie
Guest
Daekie

Unions are accessed via the Library in Ranhorn. Each Union consists of two or three heroes, and not all heroes have Unions; i.e. Thoran and Grezhul form the The Wrathful Two Union, but Shemira is not part of a Union, and cannot take advantage of Union buffs. The way Unions work is that, depending on the levels of the Heroes placed in them (you have access to your own heroes, any Mercenaries from your friends, and… possibly heroes from your guildmates?), those Heroes receive buffs whenever you field them. Using The Wrathful Two as an example: Just by placing a… Read more »

Hey whoever makes this site thank you so much smile super freakin helpful. Just wanted to let you guys know Ulmus’s description has a small spelling error: “Ulmus can perform ALSO every role in the game”, I’m guessing ya’ll meant “Ulmus can perform ALMOST every role in the game”

There is a spelling mistake for Grezhul: “summon undead minions which will distact enemies.”, it should be “distract” though.

Why would Vedan need Dura’s Grace? It only shields heroes when they use their Ult and he already can’t be attacked for several seconds when he uses his.

Thank you for this site, it helps me a lot to understand and progress!
Have you planned a guild for Lyca?

Love the effort of putting up guides and fixing stuff here. A big thumbs up for the guy who’s doing all of these. I hope someone will explain how does Estrilda’s damage reduction work. It doesn’t seem to have any effect. I’m at 11-33. Been Playing for Almost a month and barely 2 weeks. I have mythic Brutos lvl 160, Mythic Estrilda lvl 141, Legend+ Sylvina lvl 127, Legend Mireal lvl 127, Legend Raine lvl 127. I’m planning go for 4 light and Brutos. Any suggestions for a better line up?

There’s a mistake with Isabella’s description
“Isabella is leeches…”

Will there be more specific Hero guides like the ones for Brutis, Shemira, and Tasi? It would be great to have them for all the mythic heroes at least.
