The stuff of legends: new ‘mythic hero’ class

After months of whispers on the gladiator grapevine, the mightiest and most fabled of fighters are finally coming to Gladiator Heroes. Make way for the mythic hero gladiators.

Temple of Myths

The excitement will all begin once your Headquarters reach level seven and the Gods deem you worthy to experience the myths and legends that the Temple conceal.

At this point you will unlock the ability to construct an intriguing new building known as the Temple of Myths, which will act as the hub for mythic heroes where you can hire and level up your new fighters.

Hiring fame and victory

Within the mystifying Temple of Myths you can hire your legendary gladiators by using mythic tokens that are specific to each gladiator found in the Temple.

These special tokens can be won through weekly events or found in chests available after successful combat.

Each mythic hero has their own mythic token and requires 25 tokens to be hired from the Temple.

Only the most victorious of lanistae are worthy of experiencing the stuff of legends so it will take some hard work and determination to find enough tokens to release the epic unknown.
However, if you simply cannot wait to get your hands on a mighty Leonidas then have no fear. You can also pay for mystic tokens in the Temple of Myths by using gems.

‘300’ legends in the Temple

Hiding inside this new building is your first glimpse of a renowned fighter that all gladiators aspire to be.

With the distance attacking methods of a Hunter and the innate defence skills of the Guardian, Leonidas will take you closer to glory than you’ve ever been before.

Once hired, this mighty fighter will immediately come with a set of 5 incredible skills which will be constant between each Leonidas.

It’s the mightiest set of skills for the mightiest of gladiators so get grinding to get your hands on the legend that is Leonidas to see just how incredible his selection of skills will be.

Mythic heroes will also always have the same appearance, and will always be the rarest of fighters with 5 stars so get ready for the fight of a lifetime!

Gladiators from the Temple of Myths will also not equip any weapons or armour and always maintain full training so you don’t need to worry about ensuring they practise their combat every 24 hours.

As normal, Leonidas’ rank when hired will depend on the average rank of your other gladiators. To ensure you hire Leonidas at a specific rank you need all your other gladiators to have that same rank.

Levelling these legendary fighters will take three steps which cost an incremental price of gold per step. After all, glory comes at a cost.

As mythic heroes immediately come with all five skills, when you level up your Leonidas you won’t gain any new skills. However, once you reach certain levels and ranks your skills will level up making them more powerful or giving them more turns to be used.

Legendary restrictions

The Gods will be watching with pride when they see your mythic heroes fighting for their empire in the arenas but obviously the limelight must always be on these epic fighters.

As a result, you are only able to use one legendary fighter as one of your three gladiators in combat.

You can still use regular gladiators to support your main man in the arena but can’t use more than one legendary fighter in the same battle; that just wouldn’t be fair on the enemy!

As well as this, the empire deems it unfair to use mythic heroes in restricted combat.

If the battle only allows one gladiator, only spearmen or any other type of constraint in the arena, you won’t be able to place your legendary fighter on the battlefield.

So it’s time to start grinding the fields of combat for those special mystic tokens and make a mighty stash of gems and gold to prepare for the most legendary gladiator that Gladiator Heroes has ever seen.

Hunting for iron before unlocking the Mine

It’s one of the biggest obstacles to growing your city, but the struggle is defeatable. Find out some hints and tips for how to gain iron before unlocking the Iron Mine.

 

Me, myself and I-ron

Once your Headquarters reach level nine you will unlock the Iron Warehouse which can be used to store the iron resource. Iron is used to for constructing new buildings and for upgrading many of the existing buildings in your city once they reach a higher level.

Upgrading your Iron Warehouse will increase the amount of iron that you can store at any one time and will be vital once the buildings in your city require more iron to be improved.

Despite many buildings requiring iron to be upgraded at this point in the game, such as the Caravan, Headquarters, and even to construct the Iron Mine itself once you reach HQ level 10, there are still many options for you to collect iron without having built the Mine. It’s time to upgrade your strategy.

May the iron odds be ever in your favour

The best place to start on your mission to find iron is the world map.

This is the perfect excuse to give the Gods the show they’ve been waiting for. Get your gladiators in gear by filling their training, forging their mighty weapons, and levelling them to become the mightiest gladiators around.

All of this grinding will pay off once you manage to reach the dusty but deadly White Desert. Starting at mission 62, you will earn iron as part of your rewards for gaining success and glory by completing a mission.

The glory and iron rewards that come from successful missions are not the only ways to be victorious at this level.

After successful combat of any sort, you will be able to select up to nine chests and will receive the mysterious but valuable prizes that are hidden inside. If the Gods think you are worthy and luck is on your side, these free chests will be bursting with iron to help you develop your city.

You can also hunt for iron from chests purchased from the Merchant. Use your multiplayer and challenge tokens to open chests and you might be lucky enough to find an overwhelming amount of iron!

A city of iron

Developing and growing your city is vital to the best tactics of locating stone and progressing in the game.

By upgrading and constructing more buildings in your city, you will gain experience points after each construction is complete.

This will contribute to your city’s experience and once you have received enough experience points your city will level up.

Once your city levels up you will be rewarded for your hard work and incredible city growth with a selection of fantastic rewards, and once you reach level 20 you will start to receive iron for levelling up.

Diamonds are forever

If the painfully long challenge of grinding the game to find iron seems like too much of a tactical effort for your impatient gladiadors, have no fear!

You don’t have to wait to gain iron through chests and rewards to upgrade your buildings if you want to progress faster and with less grinding.

Using gems to pay for the resources you don’t have is a great way to accelerate your city development progress until you eventually unlock the Iron Mine at Headquarters level 10.

You can receive gems for free from chest prizes, free chests around the world map, as well as through combat victory and city levelling.

So it’s time to brush up on your combat strategy, plan your city development tactics, and get ready for the gladiator treasure challenge of finding that mighty iron resource.

The winning weapons of Gladiator Heroes

Deadly daggers, swooping swords, soaring spears and hefty helmets. Once your Armoury is built after  HQ level two your gladiators are ready to make the most of the world of weapons that Gladiator Heroes has to offer.

Weapons of war

The equipment that you find throughout Gladiator Heroes is so much more than just a piece of armour or a weapon.

Not only do gleaming pieces of equipment make your gladiators look even mightier than normal, but they also impact the statistics of your warriors.

Equipping weapons and armour will improve the armour, defence, attack and damage statistics of your gladiators which can greatly aid them in battle.

As mentioned in a previous blog post about defeating The Wall, some bosses and powerful opponents can absorb low damage hits or inflict high damage from their attacks. This makes them less likely to be injured and more likely the destroy your gladiators.

By equipping your team with the strongest armour and most impressive weapons you will drastically improve your combat tactics. This makes victory much more likely and the Gods even more impressed by your battle performance.

When looking at the weapons you own in the Armoury, you will sometimes see a star symbol on the weapon. This means that the item improves more that one statistic once equipped.

For instance, a shield showing the star symbol could improve your gladiator’s armour and defence statistics instead of just the armour statistics. This means additional assistances in combat and could mean a closer shot at glory.

The colours of power

In Gladiator Heroes you will notice that each item is shown on a coloured card. The colour of an item depicts its rarity and quality:

– Blue: Common
– Green: Uncommon
– Purple: Rare
– Red: Epic
– Yellow: Legendary

This means that the rarer the weapon, the higher its statatics are when compared to a different rarity weapon of the same rank and level.

This means it is extremely unlikely to come across legendary weapons but that they are extremely worthwhile because they will be among the most powerful weapons in the game, therefore contributing greatly to your gladiator’s success in combat.

Finding the tools of the trade

Weapons and armour are among the most sought after items in the game and are an exciting thing to come across, however there are multiple ways to find them in the luck of the draw.

After successful combat of any sort, you will be able to select up to 9 chests and will receive the unknown and valuable prizes that are hidden inside. If the Gods think you are worthy and luck is on your side, these free chests will be bursting with weapons of varying rarities to help develop your combat power.

You can also hunt for weapons from chests purchased from the Merchant. Use your multiplayer and challenge tokens to open chests and you might be lucky enough to find an overwhelming amount of equipment!

Helmets are among some of the rarest items in the game however they will only start to drop through chests once the average rank of your gladiators is four or above.

Once this occurs, your chances of finding the mightiest of headgear for your gladiators will greatly increase.

Premium gladiators and legendary weapons

As also mentioned in a previous blog post, Premium gladiators can be one of the best ways to get a fully-equipped legendary gladiator in a matter of seconds.

Purchasing Premium gladiator statues from the Gladiator Residence by using gems not only allows you to hire a guaranteed 5 star rarity gladiator, but also gives you a legendary weapon for each weapon slot unlocked at the rank of gladiator hired.

Whilst this means the price of the statue will increase as the rank hired goes up, this means you get more legendary weapons once hired.

For instance, gladiators hired at rank one will only receive one legendary weapon as this is the only weapon slot unlocked at that point in the gladiator’s evolution. Meanwhile, gladiators hired at rank five will receive five legendary weapons when hired through a Premium statue.

The rank of a newly hired gladiator will be the average rank of your current gladiators. However, in order to ensure your fresh fighter is a specific rank when hired, ALL your current gladiators need to already be on that rank.
