The Elder Tree

The Elder Tree is a powerful new feature added to the Library building in patch 1.31.

Leveling it up will increase the attributes of ALL your heroes and it can also unlock special skills for each different hero class.

It can be unlocked after completing stage 8-40.

Leveling: Flawless Droplets

Flawless Droplets are the currency used to level up the Elder Tree.

They can be obtained when an Elite hero is acquired for the first time or when Elite heroes are ascended (duplicates of Elite heroes will not reward Flawless Droplets). Previous heroes collected and ascended will count towards this as well.

Much like the Resonating Crystal, this essentially makes the level cap depend on how many heroes are currently in the game.

Dura’s Virtues

Dura’s Virtues are basically like a signature item, but for an entire class of heroes.

They will be unlocked after completing Chapter 12 and reaching level 15 with the Elder Tree. Each virtue represents a hero class. The classes represented by Dura’s Virtues are as follows: Tank, Warrior, Ranger, Mage and Support.

Each individual Virtue branch of the Elder Tree can be leveled up with the use of Twisted Essence. Leveling up a virtue will increase the attributes it gives to heroes.

Twisted Essence can be acquired from defeating bosses in the new Twisted Realm guild feature and AFK Rewards.

Every level will increase the heroes attributes, and a new skill will be unlocked at level 5, 15, & 25.

Can someone tell me if Astral Focus works for Safiya? Cause the Focus is activated (visual) at the beginig of her ultimate but she normaly focuses more than 3 seconds before firing her Attack. So i think the attack is not boosted by Astral Focus. Right?

Since this information exists no where, here is the price for each branch tier :
– 360 for level 5
– 2460 for level 15
– 7410 for level 25

How much does lvl 5 branch cost ? How much for level 15 ? How much for level 25 ?

When we pay 300 diamonds to reset a branch, does this reset all branches or 1 branch (means we need to pay 1500 diamonds to reset everything) ???

Somebody help me… After reading this article im still lost! How is it my tree is leveled up to 17 but I still have not received any attributes for any heroes at all? I thought there was supposed to be some huge gain I was to receive after leveling past 15?

There are two separate things you can level. The main tree and the individual specialization branches. The branches are what unlock the special abilities and require a different currency.

Both give stat boosts, the main tree gives small boosts to all heroes, the branches to specific heroes.

I appreciate that update very much, but this means also again the big fishes grow even stronger and the rest gain a boost too but not that much…i know these people help to develop this game but the Balance in PvP will suffer because of that even more.
People which are kinda new and spend a lot get a lot of heroes to ascended and can boost them now even more, so they can push even harder and get a huge advantage.

The whole game is catered to high spending whales. The fact it’s still immensely enjoyable f2p speaks volumes to its quality. Unfortunately, this is the state of mobile gaming today and most likely for decades to come.

Comes with the territory I guess. Appealing to whales is how they make the vast majority of their money. I still enjoy the game as a minnow (or whatever’s just above that) personally.

1) So do we know which branch is best to focus ? I heard that SUSTENANCE branch was the best ?

2) Also : is it best to focus everything in 1 branch and have it level 25 then start focusing on other branches ?

3) Finally : do we know how much twisted essence we need to get a branch to lvl 25 ?

theres no best in this game. its all about preferance. if major of the hero you used including sorcerer hero, then you will have bigger profit to focus on the witchcraft branch.

This is clearly an error and meant to be 220% of the hero’s Attack Rating for 7 seconds.
