My Lords and Ladies!
A new day has dawned in Stormfall! Heroes have come to lead your armies into battle!
Your Hero is your greatest weapon in Darkshine! Equipping your Hero with special Equipment Items and upgrading these Items will grant your Units special bonuses that will enhance their statistics during battle. Keep in mind that each Lord and Lady may have only one Hero.
If you have not yet selected your Hero, do so now by clicking the Hero icon on the top left corner of your screen! If you are hesitant about which Hero to choose, do not worry! Your Hero can be changed at a later time using a special Item – the Hero Selector. You are also able to change the name of your Hero whenever you like for free!
Equipment Items received from battles are kept in your Inventory. These Items all have distinct qualities and improve the statistics of certain Offensive or, depending on the Item, Defensive Units. There are four types of Equipment Items: Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Mythical. You’ll receive Equipment Items as spoils of war when battling Balur’s Orcs at Battlegrounds.
Certain pieces of Equipment come locked in Chests that require the appropriate Chest Key to open. Keys can sometimes be recovered in battle, but should you be in need of a particular Key, you can get it at any time by visiting the Black Market. You can upgrade your Hero’s Equipment by selling other Items for Moon Coins. Moon Coins can then be used to upgrade other Items. However, bear in mind that once sold, an Item cannot be returned – so think carefully before selling.
A limited number of Equipment Items can be stored in your Hero’s Inventory, although it is possible to unlock additional Slots using Sapphires. This will allow you to store more Equipment. Once all of the Slots have been filled, you must either sell Equipment Items for Moon Coins, or remove them in order to free up space. Once your Inventory is full, any Equipment Items you collect will automatically be sent to the Temporary Inventory. Items in the Temporary Inventory will be stored for 2 days, after which time they will be destroyed unless you move them to your Inventory OR equip your Hero with them. NOTE: If both your Inventories are full when new Equipment from battles is received, the newest Items will replace the oldest ones in your Temporary Inventory.
Please note: the Resources panel now appears at the top of your screen, above your Counselors. You can find information about your Level and the Units currently in your Castle on your Hero’s icon.
Now that you have this information, make the most of it! Start developing your Hero today!
Heir of Veyon, Scion of the Firstborn, Lord Regent of Stormfall
