Achievements are larger tasks/missions that document your progress in the game. The completion of an achievement grants a Title that you can add to your player name. This Title is visible in the Chat and on Leaderboards.
AetherAether Shop. You need at least one Hero with a 6 star rating to unlock the shop. Any token earned for your 6 star Hero are called Excess tokens. These tokens are converted in Aether that you can spend in the shop for other rare Hero tokens, Skins, and other goodies.
The Chat is available once the tutorial has been completed. There are several chat rooms based on different languages. You can select the chat language in the game options.

Stamina (Energy tokens)Stamina is required to enter dungeons. The Player has a stamina reserve displayed in the right top of the home town screen. It recharges in a rate of 1 unit every 6 minutes. The reserve is increased with the Player Level. Stamina is can be obtained from various sources (Shop, The Tower of Pwnage, etc) and saved up to 10,000. If the maximum of the reserve is exceeded then stamina will not recharge. Read more...
(Not to be confused with energy that is gained every turn within the dungeon level. See below.)
Energy is needed to use the Abilities (special attacks) of heroes. This is another way of saying how many turns will it take to allow that particular hero use an ability. Some attacks and status effects can increase or delay the number of turns. For example, Ekko has an ability that reduces your entire party's turn count by 2.
TIP: Spending 25x gems is a quest that is rewarded with a free use of the Portal.
Gold can be gained as a Quest or Portal rewards, for beating Enemies, beating Dungeons and completing a chapter. A few gold coins can also be found now and then in Dungeon's environment or Treasure rooms.
Hammers are used to gold production and increase security from your safe in My Dungeon starting at player level 10. They are found as treasure boxes in dungeons. Daily Quests also give Hammers for reward. See Hammers for more details.
Hero Power is a number found on the Hero's profile. It's a indicator for the power of the hero. For teams it's a vague hint and can be misleading because it does not respect synergies between team members. The hero power of a team is just the sum of each team member's hero power.
Each hero has their own token which unlocks the hero (if not already unlocked) or upgrades their star-rating (if unlocked). In the game Hero Tokens have decorations on the top. This indicates the Hero Rarity.
Honor is a currency awarded for adventurers who consistently participate in Dungeon Raids of the game. In My Dungeon honor is collected through PvP.

Common Potions like Heal, Energy and Revive Potions can be used in the Campaign to help the Heroes. XP Potions are used to level up a Hero faster. The various kind of Potions can be found as rewards, in dungeons and are sold in the Shop. TIP: At regular intervals the Shop offers XP Potions for 30,000 gold.
See the full Potions page for more information.
PvE and PvP
PvP is short for Player versus Player. In Dungeon Boss it refers to Raids that you can start in My Dungeon. Raids are not real PvP in terms of PvP because the attacking heroes are controlled by a player but the defending heroes are computer-controlled (AI defender)s. However, the defenders are chosen by other players.
These tickets are needed to do Dungeon Raids. Every 2 hours you get one ticket for free. You can earn more tickets for completing (event) quests, or buy them with gems (ticket refresh) or in the Aether Shop. Sometimes you get some in a Dungeon Boss mail.
Runes are the gear of your heroes. Runes provide stat boosts (Attack, Defense, Health, etc) that are added up to the base stats of the hero making them stronger.
The Rune power is shown in round brackets '(',')' on the Hero's profil, right next to the Hero Power. When you scout a defense for a raid the rune power of the opponent is displayed in the top right corner in brackets.
→ Main article: Runes for detailed information.
There are 3 kind of stars in Dungeon Boss: Hero Stars, Dungeon Stars and stars for a PvP battle.
Every hero has 1 star (★) when unlocked. The star rating can be upgraded to 6 stars (★★★★★★). A star can be earned by collecting a certain amount of hero tokens. The amount of which depends on the hero's current star level. Each star (★) that a hero earns greatly increases their Attack (ATK), Defense (DEF), Health, and Skill (SKL) stats.
|Current star rating||Tokens to upgrade to next level||Hero Stat Boost|
Each star adds a percentage bonus to ATK, DEF, HP, and SKL. A hero with 6 stars (★★★★★★) has a 100% boost to these stats compared to a hero with only 1 star (★). You need a total 600 tokens to increase the star rating from unlock to 6 stars.
See the Upgrading Heroes page for more details.
Star Rating for PVP
Best attacking performances in PVP will earn 3 Stars. Earning 3 Stars will increase your Honor Payouts for that Raid.
When building your attacking team you will now see Silver or Gold Stars over the Team Power display. This is a sign that you will earn a bonus for 3 Starring the Raid. Gold Stars mean a larger bonus. Team Power is the sum of the Hero Power of all team members.
Every Hero has different stats in combat. The following list describes the individual stats. See Base Hero Statistics for an overview and comparison of all Heroes' stats, and Effects for a detailed description of the impact of Daze, Fire, Cold, etc. Follow the links to the stat's main pages.
|Attack||Used to calculate how much damage an enemy receives when hit. In-game referenced as ATK|
|Defense||Reduces damage inflicted by enemies. In-game referenced as DEF.|

Trophies are rewards for PvP Raids. The more trophies the player earns the higher the rank in the Leader board and the better the reward. See Dungeon Raid for details.
XP Points are needed to increase the Player Level. XP is short for Experience Points. XP Points are gained from Quests, unlocking Dungeons and completing campaign chapters. While the XP Points only raise the Player Level all Heroes also need XP. XP for Heroes is gained for beating dungeons and in form of XP Potions. See Leveling for more details.
