Skills

Skills are special abilities that each type of hero has. Every hero of the same type will have the same skill. They are often powerful and allow for many complimentary hero pairings, skills are often referred to as ‘Procs’, a hero Procing is a hero using its skill. All skills work in the same way: When a hero hits something or is hit it charges energy, when it reaches 100 energy it will use it’s skill with its next attack. The amount of energy gained from hitting anything is 15 for all heroes except for Aries who only gains 12. Being hit by a tower or troop charges 1 energy and being hit by an enemy hero charges 15. Heroes start with 0 energy unless they have the Revitalize Talent. To increase your hero’s skill level simple open their page up inside you Heroes Altar then press the ‘Consume’ Icon for a list of options.

Skills automatically start at level 1/9 and can be increased up to 9/9 by consuming other heroes and essences. Skills become more powerful as they increase and sometimes gain additional effects. For data on each hero’s skill please read the relevant hero page. The cost to increase skill levels in higher for Elites than Ordinary heroes and higher still for Legendary heroes. Skills that deal damage are benefited by attack buffs provided from other heroes, Crests, Inscriptions and Talents. Healing skills are benefited by Inscription and Crests boosts only. For Information on how multiple effects from skills are applied please read: Advanced Strategy: Damage and Damage Reduction calculation.
