    Heroes in the game can advance up to level 70 and can learn skills that are based on other factions.
    An unique feature in this installment of the franchise is the inclusion of heroes on the battlefield.
    Previous games had the heroes play a more passive supporter role from the sidelines.
    The battle system in the game is similar to chess in that both players take turns to make their moves, by deciding where their unit shall move or attack.
    Each creature has its own damage , defense , and ability skill  during combat.
     
    In game you need resources to build and recruit units and also to buy potions and some minor items for your heroes .
    The resources are: Gold, crystals , gems , wood , ore , sulphur and mercury .
