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

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 »

Yep. Athalia is my favorite when comes to deal with nemora. But, she needs to be higher levels than nemora to kill her, since nemora has a ridiculous amount of hp for a healer.

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.

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?
