Equipment increases your heroes' stats. Even the most basic equipment adds some degree of protection, strength, or basic power, and most include additional specific buffs, such as enhanced critical damage or accuracy.
There are several grades of equipment. The higher the grade, the more valuable the equipment. Reinforce equipment to increase its stats. Equipment must be Rare or better to be reinforced.
Many equipment items are acquired through scavenging in battle, Idle Rewards, and Instant Rewards. Equipment can also be obtained from the Caravan; check regularly to see what is available.
In your Inventory, you can view all equipment that is currently not in use. When you equip an item to a hero, the equipment leaves your inventory and is viewable only on the detail view for the hero currently using it.
|When the AUTO EQUIP button has a red exclamation point, tap it to automatically equip this hero with the best items available. If there is no indicator on this button, your hero already has the best available equipment.|
|You can strengthen the heroes on your current team by making sure they have the best equipment. Tap UNEQUIP on a hero you're not currently using in battle, then check to see if AUTO EQUIP indicates available improvements for your active heroes.|
|Basic is the lowest equipment grade. Its icons have gray borders. In this example, you have three of this item, and its basic power stat is 200.|
|Common equipment icons have a green border.|
|Rare equipment icons have a blue border.|
Rare+ equipment icons have a blue border with gold brackets. The stars indicate that this equipment has been reinforced three times and is at the max level.
Rare or better equipment can be reinforced. Tap on a blue-bordered equipment item, and you will see a REINFORCE button on its detail view.
Note: This action can only be performed when an item is equipped; when you view equipment anywhere other than on a hero detail screen, it is not reinforceable regardless of grade.
Reinforcing equipment uses other resources you have collected. You can individually select the items you want to use or tap AUTO ENHANCE to allow the game to select the necessary amount for reinforcement, if available. If you do not have sufficient resources to reinforce to the next star rating, you will not be able to reinforce the item at this time.
When you use the AUTO ENHANCE feature, it will select any combination of equipment that is not currently equipped to a hero. You may prefer to manually select at times to avoid sacrificing valuable equipment. If you need more resources for reinforcement, unequip low-grade items to return them to your Inventory.
|The REINFORCE button is grayed out. Individually select resources or tap AUTO ENHANCE to choose what items to use.|
|The REINFORCE button is golden, so you can tap it to sacrifice the selected items and improve your equipment!|
|When viewing equipment in the Caravan before purchase, you may see a magnifying glass icon with a red exclamation point indicator. Tap it to view additional details such as which heroes can benefit from the item. Heroes already using the same item will not be listed, as the relevant equipment slot is already filled with the equivalent value. You must level up a hero at least once before they are eligible to use equipment, so new and untrained recruits will also not appear on these lists.|
|Melee weapons can be used by Melee or Tank heroes.|
Range weapons can be used by Range heroes.
Support weapons can be used by AOE or Support heroes.
This item is equally valuable to heroes of any faction.
This item's faction alignment is set for The Altered.
Items with faction alignments will grant faction bonuses when equipped to the correct heroes.
|The stats section lists specific bonuses granted by the equipment. In this case, the equipment would increase the hero's Attack Power and Accuracy, plus boost overall damage by 150%.|
|After reinforcing an item, you can see its original stats plus the boosts gained through reinforcement.|
