Quick Starter Tips
When you start any online multiplayer game, the first issue for most is: will i regret any of the choices i make early later in the game?
here's a few hints to help you around.


  • This game offers a mix of idle and active aspects. you can progress without playing constantly, you will progress more if you play more, to a certain degree.
    For many, this mix is ideal. for others - there are other games to play.
    Herozero gives you a good deal of choice just how much you want to get involved.
  • Skilling: there's not much you can do wrong with skilliing your hero as you go through the beginner levels. You will add many more stats throughout the game. Your stats are likely to change a lot anyway, due to the gear you find.
  • Energy: energy will replenish for you at midnite US Pacific Time. Your ingame clock shows your local time. Note you may buy extra energy with coins or donuts 4 times a day (50 energy each).
    Once your energy runs out, you may still train, fight duels, fight villains who appear randomly or go on special missions as they become available.37a48033af624a8a811f068c9f8fa365.png
  • Your hero is not lost if you see a fresh welcome screen when you return. just refresh the page.
  • Things to spend donuts on: making an informed decision on how to spend your ingame currency is probably the most hot button topic for beginners. you will find many free donuts in the game, but supplies are not endless and some things bought with donuts are more efficient or helpful to certain players than others. In general: hang on to your donuts until you can make better decisions yourself. You will not miss anything if you hold on to your nuts for a while, so dont go quick-finishing missions and buying token items right away - you'll likely find you'd rather have kept your nuts to spend on boosters, expensive energy refills or (later) missiles. see: DONUTS
  • Much of this game focuses on team play. Once you join a team, there is a team chat available to you as well. you can check how many active players a team has.
    Many Top teams will not answer your application, if you dont write a few personal words.

Q:What do Washing machine / Sewing Machine do?
A:
Sewing machine can change the look of your item for a specific cost in coins or donuts. No other benefit
Washing machine changes the stats of your item around randomly. There is 1 free use per day, additinoal uses cost 1 donut each.
note that a common item may take up to 2 stats, rares up to 3 and epics up to 4 - though they could all be reassigned to a single stat as well.

Both are user-requested additions and available to you beginning LvL 20.

Q: How does Training work?

You can select to train any of your heroes 4 main stats (Strenght, Stamina, Brain and Intuition)
Completing a set of 10 training units will add 5 points to that stat.
There is no need to complete a set within a given time frame.
Your hero begins each day with 10 training units available.
Unused training units now can be stored in the energy/training storage.
If your team has won a training trophy, you may have additional training units per day. (see: Trophies)

While training costs time and training units, it does not require energy.

You may choose to pay donuts for completing training sessions early or to auto-train several units back to back.

Q: Why did I lose a bunch of stats suddenly?

Did your stat booster expire?

Did you change team or have been excluded ?

Check your equipment

Q: How do stats work? How are stat costs calculated?


stats are cheap to buy at first and in lower levels, but the price point increases dramatically as you progress - usually more so than your income does.

the price per stat point is determined by
- how many BASE points you have already purchased.


Stats are used to determine the outcome of 3 different activities within Hero Zero: Fighting Missions, Special Missions, and PvP (dueling/team battles). The Four Stats are:

Strength - is used to calulate damage (1 str = 1 damage)
Stamina - is used to calculate HP (1 stam = 10 hp)
Brain - is used to calculate Critical Hit % (Ratio of players Brain/opponents brain) min 5% - max 60%
Intuition - is used to calculate how often you dodge or are dodged (Ratio of player/opponent) min 5% - max 40%

Stat costs are calculated based on ONLY the # of points you have purchased, the costs are unaffected by free points (from level/deed/training), your current level or any boosters.

Stats are currently only purchaseable with IN GAME currency(coins)


points added by free skill points (deed rewards), training, items, boosters or team upgrades do not affect cost.

Q: Can I change my hero name?

No, you can't. As a hero, your name and public persona and reputation is your everything :D
Support may defunct your account if your name violates the TOC (obscene, racist etc.)
Likewise, if you have a serious reason for needing your name changed, you need to contact support who will consider your case.

Q: What are the benefits of team play?

HeroZero is very much designed as a team game, each team has its own ingame chatroom.
 

  • You can attack other teams or defend attacks on your own.
  • Team Battles require coins, which are donated by team member:
  • Rewards include team honor, coins and sometimes items or even a trophy.
  • coins/items are not deducted from the losing team. Honor and trophies are.

there are 4 areas your team can build their HQ

  1. "Quarters" opens up new member slots in your team, hence more fighters for battles and more members who can in turn donate to pay for other upgrades.
  2. "Facility" gives a boost to each team members base stats
  3. "Popularity" boosts the EXP each team member earns during mission
  4. "Motivation" boosts the coins each team member earns during work or missions.

Q : What powers do team leader / advisor have ? 

 

  • Advisors can declare attacks, perform expansions, message to /a in team chat, toggle the "looking for members" sign, add members, kick members that are not advisors or leaders and serve coffee.
     
  • Leaders can to all of the above plus, change player status (including changing leader), kick players, change team logo, and order the advisors to make more coffee.

Q: What should I spend my donuts on?

A: Arguably the best bang/donut items are 50% mission boosters, expensive daily energy refills,
missiles (if you pvp) . If you plan to play for free, those are the main items ppl save up for.
Bought or gifted donuts probably give you the best return as team donations.

Q: What why do items have more or less (+x / -x) stats?

the "+/-" tell you how many stats you would gain/lose by switching to this item at the moment.
they are no absolute values, but relative.

normally, any item you find is scaled to your current level:
total of all stats = 3 x (current level) +/- 25 points (random)

Q: How do the fight missions differ in difficulty?

Fight missions are typically shorter and promise higher yields than time missions,
though there is a chance you may lose and only receive 10% of the reward.
Luckily, mission opponents always mimic your own stats, so they are fairly predictable.
you should never really fail on easy, rare if ever on medium, hard may be a risk (worth it to you?)


Hard enemies have about 94% of your own stat (93% - 95%).
Medium enemies have about 85% of your own stat (83% - 85%).
Easy enemies have about 77.5% of your own stat (75% - 80%).

fighting hard enemies,
Its advisable to have high stamina (to minimze randomness)
you can further increase relative stamina by removing ammo / weaopn
