New Feature - Hero Abilities! Get Wondrous Bonuses And Increase Your Power!


Lords and Ladies!


The gods have granted you a remarkable advantage in your fight to rule Stormfall - Hero Abilities!


Your Hero Abilities provide great Bonuses to your army and Castle!


Unlock Abilities by collecting Wisdom Points and increasing your Wisdom Level. You can get Wisdom Points in the same ways you can get Experience Points:


- Participating in Battles

- Developing your Castle

- Discovering and Upgrading your Lost Arts and Dragon Arts

- Completing various Quests


You can also unlock Abilities using Sapphires, but this shall not increase your Wisdom Level. Once unlocked, all Abilities can be activated for free!


In the Hero window there shall be two tabs: “Equipment” and “Abilities”.


In the "Abilities" tab you can find your Hero Ability Tree, which shows all your Hero Abilities, the Bonuses that each Ability provides, and the Wisdom Level you must reach in order to unlock and activate them. All Lords and Ladies start at Wisdom Level 1, although the first Abilities shall only be unlocked upon reaching Level 2.


The "Equipment" tab contains all of your Equipment Items, Equipment Coffers, and special Keys.


Battle to rule Stormfall and demonstrate your newfound power! Earn Wisdom points and use your Hero Abilities to defeat your rivals!

Very cool. This makes a lot of sense, however, it's kind of silly that my level 90 hero is equal to a noob hero at this point. Crediting us for our time and effort would have been nice.

It's great that you like the feature! Since it's something totally new, it's fair for players to be in the same conditions :)

seriously does your team know whats going on ?


% boost to troops = a larger imbalance


the strong get stronger and the weak get weaker !!!


10% to a guy with 100k offense = 110k .... while another same 10% boost to his 100M offense = 110M


more over another basic debuff to defense ... only need 3 players go BG crazy get all wisdom points, then activate offense boosts 10 years before all normal players and add a +50% boost TO ONLY 3 PLAYER ..... where by for defense you would need THE WHOLE DAMN LEAGUE TO DO THE BOOSTS


SERIOUSLY DO YOU NOT SEE THE B.S in this .. rather then having def and off boosts you could of had production time reduced for the troops

Conditions aren't same because low level player could finished his development which I already developed.

Again, no one took care about what are you producing, but about only one thing how much it will cost. Sadly and greedily as usual.


Btw, when we could use extra Paragon Points? One thing that you cant buy. You promised that before a year.

Could have been a great update - earn you way to bonus....

But we had to monetize it and make it instantly purchasable by coiners. So what could have been a good update just goes straight into the waste bin of "pay to win" updates (and that waste bin is pretty full atm).

For Battleground quests, did you mean to remove the Paragon Points reward and replace with wisdom EXP?  

Or did you mean to just add wisdom EXP, like you did with all the other quests?  

I think Paragon points for doing the battleground quests was nice.

Anyone that uses 500 sapphires to unlock a skill that can be unlocked with 2k exp is braindead.

I like the new feature


And being a non-coiner and only coining when necessary the new feature with the hero is nice.  I can earn just as quickly battle-grounding and doing the daily and league event quests that also increase your exp.  And having my paragon full level 10 all the excess paragon points being a waste and unnecessary this new feature I like because at least it also allows you to pick and choose and not have to wait and change every three hours with the dragon stones and also costing dragon stone runes to have additional bonus.  Plus I like the Permanence with it.  

So Just my opinion on it This feature is a nice bonus.

I am still trying to figure this out. It says you can buy the added levels but they will not take effect until you reach the correct number of points. So why spend sapphires? I am glad to see positive feedback and the normal complaints and questions about anything new.

Yeah Bruno you can buy the unlocks just like using sapphs to unlock next level tiers in dragons as well as in the hero's equipment for more space.


And I'm sure it most likely will allow for activation however I'm not 100% positive you can activate them until you reach the levels,  At least I hope they have that lock out.  But being the bonus what they are which are selective increases.  Spending the saphs either way would not be over bearing as you can do the same thing by upgrading Skull runes, the free side dragon stones, and even the equipment you earn to add bonus's not including the crystals which also have similar effects on your troop levels.  So I don't see this as being any more uneven than working your way up.


In fact I think this is nice because you can alternate without having to (for example with the crystals you have to buy wands to extract if you want to change bonuses) lose your bonus if you can't extract them.  Instead you're basically changing bonuses.

According to mine wisdom level is irrelevant if your willing to buy the entire setup.

just a question


Ever since you introduced sketches, I have not upgraded a single thing in the Dark Plains, all my buildings are at level 20, losts are are mostly at 30. So these leaves me with only 2 ways to ever get Exp points in BG and offense defense actions.

But, since I need 300 archers to now defend against 1 dragon. Offense actions are out.

These now leaves BG. But my bank is broken, I simply haven't got a decent rewards ever since the major BG updates last winter, these leaves me with noway of getting exp points. So no way of getting wisdom points. 

That now means I simply can't get sketches, upgrade a hero and now I can't get wisdom points.

My question.

Do you suggest i keep playing? or I quit, since the playing ground is now skewed crazily out of my feasibility?

This is a new feature, that's why all players start from the very beginning. 


As for the Paragon feature, it takes time to create the new part for feature, which won't harm the existing ones. We have this in plans, however, I can't give the exact ETA.

You get Wisdom Points in the same ways you can get Experience Points.

All players can earn Wisdom Points by participating in the battles.

Lord Oracle, as I mentioned before, Sketches is a rare Resource, however, it's possible to collect Sapphires in order to gain it. 

As for the Battlegrounds, it you haven't receieved a Reward for a while, it doesn't mean that Battlegrounds are broken. You should try different strategies or you can concentrate on other game aspects. 


And the last thing. You can get Wisdom Points in the same ways you can get Experience Points, in your case, by participating in Battles. 


I wish you successful Battles only!
