Equipment is given to your hero is several different ways. You can buy equipment from an armorer or other special shop. Or you may recieve items upon completing quests. But the biggest source of equipment are treasure chests, raids, heroic battles and expeditions. Most likely in that order as you prgress through the game. Your equipment may be stored in you inventory or at an artefact bailiff. Or they may be used in your heros equipped slots.
Artefact Value Edit
All items are given an artefact value, which provides an approximation of the items influence on your battle power, in turn influencing on how much easier or harder future battles will become.
Artefact Quality Edit
There are a number of different artefact qualities, stated in the top right corner of an items information window, this quality also changes the color of the name on the item.
- Mundane (White)
- Minor (Green)
- Major (Blue)
- Relic (Magenta)
- Legendary (Gold)
Prefixes & Suffixes Edit
All random items are provided with a prefix name and a suffix name. An example is "Silk Skirt of Loyalty".
Prefix names gives a hint on the intended user of the item, the inventory slot used and the required level of the item. (e.g. "Silk Skirt" items are Lower Body Armor, Magic Hero required and range from level 22-27)
Suffix names indicates what attributes the item provides.
- Devastation; Magic, Heroic Support, Luck
- Domination; Might, Creature Defence, Luck
- Loyalty; Might, Creature Defence, Spirit
- Mastery; Magic, Heroic Support, Spirit
Domination and Loyalty appear on equipment subtypes Primary Weapon, Lower Body Armor and Body Armor
Devastation and Mastery appear on equipment subtypes Support Weapon, Trinket and Headgear
Unit improvement Edit
Items of quality higher or equal to Major (Blue), and set items, may give percentual improvements to specific units.
An example is "Archer Attack Power 20%"
Equipment part of a set are still bound by the suffixes even though they don't contain the suffixes in their name, but are not buond by which equipment subtype they appear on.
Sets also give added bonuses when specific amounts of set-pieces are worn at the same time. These are more attributes and/or unit improvement.
For some set-items the artifact value, and therefore the amount of stats given, depends on the difficulty of the battle that it was required from (e.g. set-items aquired from several different heroic tiers). These items also seem to have somewhat random unit improvement, though the number of units improved is fixed.
Unique Items Edit
Unique items are much like set items, but simply are not combinable with other items for further bonuses.
