You can recruit new heroes in a variety of ways.
Recruiting at the Cantina
The Cantina is located in the Hideout and unlocks after you clear Stage 1-12. In the recruiting process, you will see a SKIP button appear at two different points. The first SKIP will bypass the cutscene animation and take you directly to the phase where you can discover which hero or heroes you are receiving. The second SKIP will bypass the individual reveals of each hero you are receiving. If you want to see each hero's card as it is revealed, do not use SKIP. Tap the book of heroes to reveal your new recruits.
Recruiting with Recruit Tickets
If you have Recruit Tickets, you can use them to recruit heroes. 1 Recruit Ticket recruits 1 hero, and 10 Recruit Tickets recruit 10 heroes.
Recruiting with Diamonds
If you do not have Recruit Tickets, you can recruit heroes with Diamonds. 300 Diamonds recruit 1 hero, and 2,700 Diamonds recruit 10 heroes.
Recruiting with Hearts
10 Hearts recruit 1 hero and 100 Hearts recruit 10 heroes. You receive Hearts from friends and from the Guard Tower. Learn how to add friends and send and receive Hearts in Undead World: Hero Survival.
Recruiting with Faction Tickets
You can use Faction Tickets to recruit heroes of a specific faction. The timer on the button shows how long until the faction rotates; you can use Diamonds to change factions sooner.
|Tap the rotation icon to bring up the faction change menu if you want to change the featured faction before the timer ends.|
Each time you recruit heroes at the Cantina, the hero you recruit will be random. Recruiting heroes with Recruit Tickets or Diamonds have the same odds:
Common Heroes: 49.7500%
Rare Heroes: 44.0000%
Epic Heroes from the Collegium, Blue Banshees, Sugar Reapers, or Hive: 5.8000%
Epic Heroes who are Altered or Gungnir: 0.4500%
The only way to increase the odds of recruiting a particular hero is to add them to your Wish List in the Cantina. Only the four largest factions are available in the Wish List, and only Epic recruits may be added to your Wish List.
|Tap the Wish List icon in the Cantina to view or edit your Wish List.|
In the Wish List menu, tap the faction you want to view or edit. You have five slots per faction. Make sure your most desired heroes are selected for each of the four main factions. Tap in the main Wish List area above the faction views to return to the Wish List and select another faction if desired. When you are satisfied with all of your Wish List selections, tap CONFIRM. Those will now be the heroes with the highest odds of recruitment within their subset of recruitment odds. That means your base recruitment odds for Epic heroes from the four main factions remains at 5.8000%, but within that percentage, you have increased the specific odds for the twenty heroes you selected across those factions.
Muster Roll Rewards
When you recruit at the Cantina, you will earn Muster Roll Points. When your Muster Roll gauge fills up you will earn rewards.
You can earn Epic and Rare Recruiting Pamphlets through rewards or by purchasing them with the appropriate resources at the Caravan. 60 Epic Recruiting Pamphlets recruit an Epic hero, and 60 Rare Recruiting Pamphlets recruit a Rare hero.
Once you obtain a Recruiting Pamphlet, you can find it in your Inventory. The number in the bottom-right corner of the Recruiting Pamphlet icon indicates how many of each pamphlet you currently have.
To use the pamphlets, tap on the icon in your Inventory, and then tap Use. You must have at least 60 matching pamphlets to be able to recruit a hero; Rare and Epic pamphlets cannot be combined in any way.
If you have many of the same Recruiting Pamphlet in multiples of 60, you can recruit more than one hero at once. Use the + and - on the item's description page to set if you want to use 60, 120, 180, etc. pamphlets for 1, 2, 3, etc. heroes, respectively.
Pressing MAX will set you up to recruit as many heroes as you can based on how many pamphlets you have.
Recruiting Heroes at Caravans
You can use your Caravan-specific coins to recruit heroes at the Dismiss Caravan, the Midtown Caravan, the Guild Caravan, and the Arena Caravan.
At the Caravans, you can see which hero you will get when you purchase them. Once you purchase the hero from the Caravan, their hero-specific recruit ticket will appear in your Inventory. Go to your Inventory and redeem the ticket to officially add that hero to your team. (This added step is useful because you can encounter an issue where you have run out of slots for heroes; unredeemed hero recruit tickets only take up room in your Inventory, not your heroes roster.)
You can also find Recruiting Pamphlets at the regular Caravan, the Dismiss Caravan, the Midtown Caravan, and the Arena Caravan.
Using Hero Cards
You can find Hero Cards in certain Caravans or by receiving them as rewards. Hero Cards are delivered to your Inventory and must be redeemed from there. Each Hero Card is aligned with a faction, and using a Hero Card will recruit a hero from that faction.
If you receive an Epic Faction Box as a reward, you can choose to receive a Hero Card from a specific faction.
Heroes as Rewards
Occasionally you will receive heroes as rewards for winning a battle or finishing an event. Learn more about events in Undead World: Hero Survival.
You can also choose a specific hero as your reward in some events; these heroes will be delivered to your Inventory and must be redeemed from there to appear in your roster.
