Hello, my Lords and Ladies! New Heroes are coming to Darkshine to help you defeat your enemies with much more ease and strengthen your army! 

Why do I need a Hero?

Well, firstly, it is really cool! Secondly, you are getting a faithful companion. Not only does it look great but also enhances your Units’ characteristics. Although you can only have one Hero, you can change your Hero’s appearance and name at any time by using the Hero window. The Hero has 3 different looks for you to choose from.

Equipment and Inventory

Equipment is the term for your Hero’s special Items, which boost your Units' characteristics. Each piece of Equipment has distinct qualities that will improve the effectiveness of certain Unit Tiers, either Offensive or Defensive, depending on the Equipment itself. In total, you will have 8 slots to store your Items.

Offense Items: Ring, Gloves, Sword, Boots.

Defense Items: Ring, Helmet, Shield, Chest armor.

Items vary by Tier and level. Each Tier gives a bonus to certain Unit types.

Tier 1 Items improve Infantry Units

Tier 2 Items improve Cavalry and Infantry Units

Tier 3 Items improve Occult, Cavalry, and Infantry Units

Tier 4 Items improve Bestiary, Occult, Cavalry, and Infantry Units

The higher the level of the Item, the more bonuses it gives. There are four types of Items: Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Mythical.

All Equipment Items can be broken into Moon Coins. The amount of Moon Coins you get from breaking an Item will depend on its Tier. You can use the Moon Coins to upgrade your Items. The Items have 6 levels (Basic, +1, +2, +3, +4, +5).

Once all of the Slots have been filled, you may Break Equipment Items into Moon Coins. Alternatively, you may remove Hero Chests in order to free up space. If your Inventory is full, any new Equipment Items collected will be automatically sent to the Temporary Inventory. You can unlock new Inventory slots using Sapphires.

 

Items in the Temporary Inventory will be stored for 2 days after they are found, after which time they will be destroyed unless you move them to your Inventory or equip your Hero with them. The Inventory mechanics may seem similar to those of Relics. That is because they are.

Hero Chests, Chest Keys, and Hero Packs

Some pieces of Equipment can be used immediately by your Hero, while others will come locked in Hero Chests. To open a Hero Chest, you will need the appropriate Chest Keys. Chest Keys are also found at Battlegrounds, but if you do not want to wait until you get the Key you need, you can always purchase the required Chest Key from the Black Market.

 

There are three Levels for every Chest: Uncommon, Rare, and Mythical.

 

However, the quickest way to better equip your Hero is by using Hero Packs. Hero Packs contain a set number of Equipment Chests and their matching Chest Keys. There are four types of Hero Packs that can be obtained from the Black Market:

 

 - Class I Hero Pack: Tier 1 Items

 - Class II Hero Pack: Tier 2 Items

 - Class III Hero Pack: Tier 3 Items

 - Class IV Hero Pack: Tier 4 Items

Important! Each Hero Pack can only be purchased ONCE. You will need to discover certain Lost Arts to unlock the possibility to purchase certain Hero Packs.

Important:

  • Items that seem identical may in fact be different. Namely, they may require your Hero to be of a certain level in order to be applied.  
  • Items of the same Tier may give different bonuses. For example, a Tier 1 Item may give a 1% Bonus to the stats, while another Tier I Item may increase the characteristics by 1.5% or 2%. 
  • Equipment Items cannot be earned in PvP. 

Your faithful companions are there for you. Make haste, my Lords and Ladies! Stormfall is awaiting to see more of your successes!

Is there some picture inventory list somewhere as seeing the different items available will let us see what we have got and whether there are items we should look out for or ones we can safely sell.

It would mean we could upgrade with confidence that we weren't going to get a better one the next day and all that upgrading was a waste of time and coins.

Also would it not be better to make all item either defence or offence, so if you were raiding you would put on your offensive items and if you were defending against a raid you could change all your items to defence. That would give a greater range of equipment and more income for you.

Greetings. There's no such list, but you can create one if you wish. You can also ask for some help of other players.

How am I supposed to do that when I don't know what items are out there. This is the trouble with Plarium, you come out with all these ideas to screw money from us then tell us nothing significant about them. So in that case, I won't bother wasting money on a mysterious package which may or may not contain a significant item.

Perhaps you should rename them Schrodinger boxes because until you open it you don't know if it is full of crap or not.

I can ensure you that all Chests contain valuable Items, and you can make sure of it. It's possible that we will add more Items in the future, so you could improve even more stats of your Units. Hero is one of the major features and our higher priorities.

I was talking about the priorities in development, not in gameplay :) Two different things.

As for the alts, I'm sure you already know that they should be reported to our Support Team. Unfortunately, I am unable to help you with them. So as our developers are.

I started out playing on server 2 a year and a half ago and have made it up pretty good in level but I recently started playing on server one using the knowledge I gained to quicly build up to level 62 (still only able to build barbarians at best as I have done this in under a month. I have found on my hero that I can still only pull level one items even though it shows I am capable of buying level 2 so I figured there must also be a minimum level BG for each. Can you tell me what that level is for 2,3 and 4

I believe you will find out that hero equipment awarded is by Battleground level. I believe you will find class 2 starts at level 21, class 3 level 41 and class 4 at level 61

.See the link below for much more information about the Hero equipment.
