|Epic Weapons not only increase your Hero's stats but also add special effects!|
An Epic is a special, unique epic gear. It can be a weapon or armor. It's individual and tailor-made for every Hero. Epic Heroes have already found or forged their Epic. Indeed, as of now, not every Hero in the game has already discovered their Epic.
New Epics are released every few weeks for Heroes without an Epic and can be looted on Boss Island. Epics consists of 3 parts that are hidden there. You need these parts to unlock and fully level up the Epic.
How to Get an Epic
There are 5 dungeons on Boss Island. One for each Element. If a Hero has already discovered their Epic you can unlocked it once you have fully ascended that hero and if that hero is level 50 or higher. You need to find the first part of the Epic to unlock it. The other two parts are needed to level it up. They are needed at Epic level 6 and level 12, respectively. To be able to loot part 2 and 3 of the Epic Player Level 60+ is required.
By taking the hero to their elementally respective Boss Island Dungeon (for example, Fire Heroes search in the Lava Academy dungeon) and beating said dungeon, the hero's Epic may drop. It may take several runs to drop. Then, within the hero's "Epic" menu, you can apply the epic to the hero, using raw and crafted Materials and the epic itself.
|Epic only have a chance to drop if you bring that Hero into its Elemental Dungeon!|
Epics allow your hero to gain boosted stats, and a special effect when using a basic attack. An successful Epic attack deals multiplied damage vs the target, and often has an effect that cleanse or buffs allies, debuffs the enemy team/target, or purges enemies' buffs, etc.
Upgrading Epics requires Totems and Raw Materials. As the levels upgraded progress higher and higher, more materials will be needed.
The chance to do an Epic attack is 10% when the Epic is unlocked and it increases with every level of the Epic, up to the maximum of 30% at level 12. The epic boost for stats also increases with every level of the Epic.
Stat Boost and Hero Power Increase
Unlocking and upgrading the level of the Epic increases three stats (Attack, Health, etc) and the Hero Power of that hero. The Hero Power is a hint how strong the the hero is. The total team Hero Power is sum of the heroes' Hero Power on the team.
|Primary Stat Boost||5%||6%||7%||8%||10%||12%||14%||16%||18%||20%||25%||30%|
|Secondary & Tertiary Stat Boost||2%||3%||4%||5%||6%||8%||9%||10%||12%||14%||16%||20%|
|Hero Power Increase||?||?||?||?||+33||+32||+33||+32||+33||?||?||?|
The Epic boosts three stats of the hero, for example: Attack, Health, and Skill. The boosts are displayed in the hero's profile when you tap & hold a stat value. CRIT chance is always a secondary stat and half of that percentage. Maximal +10% at level 12, that is.
There are a few special Runes, rewarded by participating in events, with a special 4th stat that increases the chance to fire the effect of an Epic. The chances of these Runes stack, and can guarantee the Epic effect on a basic attack.
