Hero Trials

Hero Trials is a game mode where you are attacked by a wave of enemy heroes. It is similar to Here be Monsters except that there is only 1 wave and it is full of many copies of 1 type of hero. You generate 1 entry every 6 hours. To find Hero Trials press the blue portal at the top of your screen to the left of the Quest Board and select the icon with Thunder God’s mug on it:

HT1

This opens up the HT page:

HT2

On this page you can see how many chances (Swords) you have left, how long until you generate your next one and what levels you have available. Once you clear a level the next one becomes available to be entered.

When you select the level you want to play and press start the game will select a random Legendary hero other than:

Then the appropriate amount of heroes for the level you selected will spawn, they also have a 4x HP buff. The hero levels and amount vary based on the level of Hero trial you select. The specific statistics of each level as well as the rewards are listed in the below table:

In addition to this there is an undisclosed percentage% chance of winning a hero with the completion of a Hero Trial and IGG claims the chance increases with the higher levels.

As of late 2015 Hero Trial II was added to the game. It is levels 13-24 and involves specifically different heroes. The heroes you can fight against in HT2 are:

  • Siren
  • Death Knight
  • Orksbane
  • Aries
  • Vlad Dracula
  • Pixie
  • Warlock
  • Harpy Queen
  • Treantaur

We haven’t completed all levels of HT2 yet but so far the rewards seem to scale up at the same ratio’s as the first 12 levels, with the same types of reward also.

Strategy:

  • Magic Towers with Blue garrisons perform well on Hero Trials because of the stun affect the garrison provides.
  • Heroes that perform well in Here be Monsters tend to perform well in Hero Trials.
  • Hero Bombs are useful.
