How to meltdown items?
- The easiest way to earn Pearls is to melt down Hero-Items you no longer need at the Blacksmith. You'll have to pay some Gold to the Blacksmith, but when he is finished melting down your item, you’ll receive Pearls in return.
- The amount of Pearls you get per item is dependent on the Gold value of that item.
- The duration the Blacksmith needs to meltdown an item is mainly dependent on the amount of pearls the item provides, your amount of melting slots, and the building level of the Blacksmith
- Inside the Blacksmith building, you can unlock new Slots, allowing you to queue up more items for meltdown. Adding slots will additionally speed-up the processing of the items inside the Forge (you will get Pearls faster) and it will increase the amount of Pearls you will get from an item you decide to melt down. If you have multiple items that you want to meltdown, you can select them all by checking the box on the items in the Blacksmith.
How to upgrade items?
- When upgrading a item, you can choose its main stat or a Perk to improve.
- There is a certain chance that an upgrade will succeed. The success rate is very high at the beginning and reduces with each successful upgrade.
- The longer the green portion of the circle around the item in comparison to the red part, the more likely a succesful upgrade is.
- Every individual upgrade can only fail once "in a row". The attempt directly after a fail is guaranteed to succeed.
- After each successful upgrade, the forged item needs to cool down a bit, and thus cannot be upgraded for some time. However, the improved item can be used in battle instantly.
- The Pearl price for starting the upgrade process depends on the item level and the amount of successful upgrades for this item.
How to upgrade Spells, Units or Towers?

- From there, you can see the change in the stats of the units, indicated by green numbers.
- Their boosted stats do not show up in the Barracks or the Wizard's Tower
The improvement displayed 0,1%, but the stats of my Item didn't change, why is this?
- The reason your item didn't upgrade, was because our system is rounding up/down values on the UI, the next time you forge your item, it should show the improvement you are looking. The upgrade is nonetheless applied and you benefit from it!
- For example, if the initial exact value is 4.86 (rounded to 4.9) and you have an upgrade of 0.08 (rounded to 0.1), the new value will be 4.94 (rounded to 4.9).
