Beginners Guide

Tips and Tricks

Leveling your hero.




Age Progression



You can recruit Heroes in your Tavern. Every hour, the tavern refreshes, but you have to look into the tavern to make it refresh. Meaning, the timer will count down again once you click it. This way, you don't miss any good heroes, but it may take more time to get a good hero. A higher level tavern gives more heroes per refresh. Whether or not a higher level tavern has a higher chance per slot for a better hero, or each slot has the same chance for a better hero has not been tested or confirmed.

There are 4 colors that a hero can be. In order of worst to best, they are:

WHITE, GREEN, BLUE, and PURPLE. White is the worst and Purple is the best. The better color, the more increase in attribute points a hero gets every time he/she levels up. That is a big difference for higher lvl heroes. When a White hero levels up, he/she only gets 4 attribute points for you to add. A Blue hero, on the other hand, gets 8 attribute points for you to manually add per level up. Your starter Blue hero only gets 7 attribute points per level up though, until you use the Hero Evolution Badge to turn him/her Purple.


Hero equipment (armor,accessories and weapon) can be obtained in many ways including hunting npc mobs, trading honor points, the arcadian ladder and lairs.

  • White- Common quality/rarity. Better than nothing but only just.
  • Green- Fine quality/rarity. Small bonuses.
  • Blue- Excellant quality/rarity. Average bonuses, some blue pieces giving quite decent troop bonus.
  • Purple- Outstanding quality/rarity. Very good improvement to hero stats and bonuses.
  • Orange- Legendary quality/rarity. So far the only legendary quality items in the game are pets.

Hero Skills and where to find them

The skills are the magic spells that they can cast


In MoW, equipment plays an important role in the strength of your hero. All equipment is divided by 10 levels and there are 4 levels of quality distinguished by different colors. The colors are: white, green, blue, and purple, from the lowest quality to the highest. Purple equipment is the best quality and has the lowest drop rate. Blue and purple equipment both have an attribute limit; your hero can only equip them if they satisfy the attribute requirement.

Auction House and Mall

The Auction House is a HUGE part of MoW. This feature allows you player to player trading as well as selling something for a profit. As seen in the picture below this is where you would click to OPEN the Auction House, commonly known as AH.  You can also purchase Gear in the Item shop (mall)

Troop Types

There is a special relationship between different troops and city defense facilities. As a commander, you must master all the different types of facilities and troops on the battlefield. You have to utilize this knowledge to conquer your enemy and win the battle with the least amount of losses when arranging formations and deciding battle strategy. Click the Troop Types link for more info.

Carnage Info



It can get you the gold that you need for all your upgrades. By garrisoning your heroes you can protect yourself from being plundered unless the attacker defeats your garrisoned heroes.


Buildings can provide all kinds of function support for player in resource producing and troops recruiting. At the beginning, players will have the lowest level city, and you can build 22 different structures successively according to the game progression, including Civilian Houses, Town Center, Barracks, Taverns, Military Armory, Markets, etc. In the region outside the City, players can build Farms, Quarries, Lumber Mills and Metal Mines. Players can develop their own Cities according to the differences in building functions, style, level and quantity. Do you want to build a powerful Military Country, or a wealthy Trade Center? It all depends on you!
