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.

Points mean prizes in the battle of clans

With Clan Battles fully underway, find out exactly how to win the most points and defeat your clan enemies once and for all.

The winning scale

Each colosseum on the Clan Battle map can be captured by you or your opposing clan.

You can only reach colosseums that are further away, once you have captured those closest to your side of the map, with combat increasing in difficulty and granting more points and prizes the further you stray from your side.

In order to occupy a colosseum, you will need to reach a certain amount of points on the scale you will see at the top of the colosseum’s information.

The closer you are to your side of the map, the lower the points required to capture the colosseum will be.

This means that it will be much harder for the enemy clan to territorialize a colosseum that is on your side of the map as they will need a much larger quantity of points.

Health means victory

The amount of points you receive after successful combat depend on the overall health of all your gladiators after the battle.

You will receive 3, 2, or 1, points that contribute towards capturing the colosseum.

This means that defense is equally as important as attack in these battles.

Incorporate defensive gladiators with protective skills into your combat strategy in order to take advantage of the maximum points available from successful fights.

Sword and Shield gladiators with active block and armour increase skills can help defend enemy attacks and reduce damage, whilst gladiators with the healing shout active skills can help heal injured gladiators and improve your chances of achieving the maximum points.

Exploiting passive skills is also crucial in these strategic battles as using gladiators with scavenger, anger, and regeneration can save your gladiators once they have been damaged.

A game of capture the colosseum

Once a colosseum has been captured by a clan, the clan will earn points for every 5 minutes that the arena is in their possession.

These points will differ depending on the colosseum’s distance away from your clan’s side of the map.

The amount of points you receive from the captured colosseum will contribute to your general Clan Battle score and will eventually decide the clan who has won the ultimate victory for glory.

This makes strategy, health, and the subsequent amount of points you have on the colosseum’s scale imperative for Clan Battle success.

 

Get ready to heal your gladiators, prepare your strategy, and fight to the death in the Clan Battle arena. Who will win the ultimate victory for glory and who will face the ultimate despair in gruelling combat? Let the Clan Battles commence!

The battle of the clans has officially begun

Prepare your clans, develop your fame, and fight for honour – Clan Battles are finally here.

Search for your battle

Start your clan’s fight for victory through the Games of Glory page where your clan’s leaders and generals can start the search for an opposition.

Opposing clans will be selected based on a similar power level to create similar power battles.

It’s all about preparation

Once an enemy clan has been selected for battle, you will have 24 hours to prepare your clan for war.

You will be able to see the war map and its arenas before the battle begins, and the clan chat window will be available from this screen.

Use the clan chat to discuss strategy and let everyone know about the battle. Align your team members with your war plan and get ready for combat madness!

Will you decide to all attack the same bases to keep territories for longer, or will you go for gold and try to get to the most powerful coliseums before the battle is over?

The fight for honour

You will have 24 hours to conquer the arena and gain victory over the opposing clan.

Your clan will start by fighting in the coliseums nearest to your “side” of the war map and the opposing clan will do the same on their “side”.

Once your clan is victorious in a coliseum they will capture it and earn points for every five minutes that the arena is captured.

After defeating the first arenas, you will be able to proceed to invading the adjoining coliseums and advancing towards the enemy clan’s side.

As you move closer to the enemy’s section of the arena ground, the battles will increase in difficulty. The harder the combat, the more prizes are to be won and the more points your clan will win for holding those arenas in your power.

Clan generals and leaders can order their clan members to attack a specific arena which can be implemented into their battle strategy.

Any fame earned during these battles will be clan fame not personal fame.

All that glitters is gold

After all successful combats, you will receive battle prize chests and win the rewards that are revealed within them.

Also, for every successful battle, you will obtain potential prizes that depend on the difficulty of the battle. These prizes are wood, silver, and gold tokens that you can use to purchase chests in the Merchant.

Individual members will earn these prizes depending on how many battles they have accomplished during the war.

If your clan is victorious in the war, you will receive 100% of these prizes and can bask in all your glory.

If your clan loses then all is not lost. You will still receive a proportion of these prizes to compensate your efforts during the gruelling and grizzly war.

 

So prepare your clans, wave your flags high, and get ready to battle to the death for glory

Clans are changing the “fame” game

Lanistae, you’ve been waiting for what feels like a lifetime –  but finally, the Clan System is coming to Gladiator Heroes! And with it come some very exciting changes to “fame” as you know it.

 

Rebalancing fame

Once the mighty Clan System has been implemented, the fame of ALL players will be rebalanced and integrated into a rebuilt League of Heroes system (this means most players will end up losing some fame after the rebalance).

After that point, fame will only be earned by winning multiplayer matches, and any fame that a gladiator earns will be assigned to the player’s city as a whole, instead of it being distributed among the gladiators like it has been previously.

This means that missions, event matches and challenges will no longer provide any fame for your gladiators or your city.

Now the only way to call the Gods’ attention will be to defeat other players in glorious multiplayer combat.

Teamwork makes the dream work

The moment a player joins a clan, their city’s fame will be added to the clan’s fame. As a result, all clan members will add their respective fame to the overall clan fame.

‘Tis the season to experience clans

The brand new Clan System will be based on something known as “Seasons” and a Season will begin on the first Monday of each Month, and end on the first Sunday of the following month.

During these Seasons, clans will compete to earn as much fame as possible. At the end of each Season, the clans with the highest fame will earn HUGE rewards.

At the end of each Season, the leaderboards will be reset and the competition will start once more.

Don’t panic; your fame will be preserved, so as soon as you fight at least once again in the new Season, you will be reinserted into the leaderboard at the same rank you achieved the previous Season, so you can continue climbing the League of Heroes to reach the ultimate glory!

Show off your Prestige

If you managed to reach God II (the highest league level) and continue to increase your fame, all that “surplus” fame will be converted into “Prestige points” when the Season ends.

Prestige points will be permanent, and will create the perfect way to show off to the world how glorious your clan is, as well as warning your foes that you’re not somebody to be messed with.

Only the most persevering lanistae will be able to claim the glory bestowed by the Gods, so push your limits and climb to the top with the help of your clan mates!

How to beat the Undertaker in Gladiator Heroes

He’s big, bad, and notoriously hard to beat; lurking in level 61 and ready to send your gladiators on a one way trip to the infirmary.

He’s the Undertaker, and he’s shaped up to become one of the toughest opponents to beat in Gladiator Heroes.

But, with the right gladiators and the right tactics, he can still be overcome. In this guide, we outline how you can send the Undertaker back to the underworld, once and for all.

Start with your gladiators

Sword and shield gladiators are the best class to send into battle against such a strong opponent, as they are defensively the strongest fighters and the only ones capable of clocking back attacks. It also helps if they’re equipped with the block skill, armour increase, back protection and anger (regain 25% health on ally death).

If your HQ is past level 11 and you’ve already gained your first spear gladiator, he’s also a useful tactician to put into battle. A serial hit-and-run artist, the lancer will attack from afar before retreating from the arc of the Undertaker’s blow. The stopping or stun throw are particularly strong skills that’ll help your other sword and shield fighter get an edge over this brutish beast.

It’s all in the positioning

As you’ve probably learnt by now, tactical positioning is the secret to bringing down even the highest-powered opponent.

While the ‘standard’ order of initiative is usually dual weapons; spear; sword and shield; two hands, due to his high level of attack, the Undertaker always moves first. So, to make sure you’re the first one to attack, place your gladiators at the opposite end of the arena. The Undertaker will spend his first move approaching your fighters, meaning that you’ll be able to deal the first blow.

However, be careful not to place them too far away; otherwise you’ll also waste your first turn moving towards the opponent. Strike the right balance; about halfway between the back wall and the centre line, and close to the side walls. If you place two gladiators on one side and another on the other, it’s more likely that you’ll get a good few back attacks in, too.

A higher power

It goes without saying that you should make sure your fighting gladiators are fully trained before going into combat. Remember, you won’t need to spend resources on training your gladiators if they all fight at least once a day; this will refresh their training and they won’t lose any bars.

All in all, you should aim for a combined power of over 2,000 to take on the Undertaker, with at least one of your gladiators in rank 3. To quickly promote your gladiators, it’s all about finding a map mission that strikes the perfect balance between high XP and low health loss.

You should be aiming for a minimum of 100 XP per combat, and as little loss of health as possible. It’s worth noting, however, that your health is automatically returned to 100% once you level up, so try to push your gladiators as far as you can to keep them, and your resources, out of the infirmary.

If at first you don’t succeed…

And finally: try, try, try again. Single-opponent levels, such as the Undertaker, Winter Beast and God’s Hunter, are notoriously challenging moments in the game which will force you to farm for XP and fight for better weapons.

But, with enough training, dedication, and a lot of trial and error, you’ll send the Undertaker to meet Pluto in the Underworld.
