Heroes will buy and find equipment, potions, charms, magic books and much more that they can use to become more powerful and gain new abilities!

Content Update 1.1.23


Play a new content quest and unlock the ability for legendary chests to spawn and watch your heroes use unique item abilities on their enemies!

This update provides you with a new quest, that once completed will allow Legendary Chests to spawn not only in skirmish mode but the campaign as well. These chests will provide a random legendary item to the hero that opens it.

Unlike regular items, legendary items will visually show up on heroes that have them. So if you have a horde of giant spiders attacking your towers for instance, you’ll know to look for a Hero that is wearing the Head of the spider queen. An item that allows the hero that wears it to summon a small horde of spiders to do their bidding.

More Legendary items will be added with future updates alongside new quests to unlock even more content!

Legendary Items: the bomb Bag Legendary Items: Head Of The Spider Queen

Tracked. I would suggest drawing better sprites for the village and others.
