    Welcome to the Ultimate Hello Hero Guide.

    I’ve devoted myself to gather/create/reunite information from various websites and self experiences in order to create this guide. Basically I will be going over Leveling up tips, recruiting and training heroes, upgrading, enhancing, fusing, carats, honor, gold, items, Heroes slots and some stages database such as Exp.

    This guide will not only help the new players with useful tips but also the experienced players looking for more deeper tips such as best spots for heroes exp farm, acquiring carats, dungeon rewards and so more. If you have read up to here you are probably already bored lol, so lets go straight to the point.


    achievement(1).gif

    If this is your first time playing the game then I will recommend you to start in the Armon Server, which is where the majority of AI players are.

    Also when you enter it will ask you for a referral code, feel free to use my name: Artrix55, you will get 10 Carats, which is the IAP of the game.



    Starting Point
    Welcome to the World of Hello Hero, after you have chosen your server and user name you will go through a typical short tutorial where you will obtain your first three main heroes of the game, which they are: Harold, Ophelia and Aaron.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Under any circumstances do not sell this Heroes before mastering them. Mastering is the act of leveling up the hero up to level 30, which is the cap level for all heroes.

    After mastering this 3 heroes you can obtain a 3 star Healer that is called Amelia:
    [​IMG]

    If you dive deep enough into the game you will understand the importance of a good healer, and she is one of them. In addition, one of the things in this game is that when you evolve you get a RANDOM unit, so you are not guaranteed to have a high tier healer unless you get lucky, so keep her until you get a better tier healer.

    To claim her all you have to do is go to "Recruit" in the main menu of the game, then on the bottom center of the screen you will see an option that says Race, just tap on it and redeem.

    Messages
    In the main menu inside of the game you have an option called "Messages"

    [​IMG]

    You can see it is located in the second place from left to right.

    This "Message" option allows you to do two things, one of them is to receive gifts from the server(when completing missions,buying carats, getting some special heroes). Whenever you have a gift the "NEW" word will pop up on top of it( like in the friends one). And the second thing is to view your messages sent from your friends/players/Gms of the game.

    Always be sure to check your Messages for bonuses since some of them can expire within a time limit.

    Types of Heroes

    In this game there are four classes of Heroes:
    -Dealers(Denoted by a Sword): Lack of Hp and Defense but its attack make up the difference
    -Tanks(Denoted by a Shield): Enormous amount of Hp and defense but they lack Attack
    -Hybrids(Denoted by a three arrows "spinning"): They have well rounded stats and can take the role of a Dealer, Tank or Healer. Therefore there stats might differ.
    -Healers(Denoted by a Cross): Have less stats than any other class, but this types of Hero will help to keep your party alive.

    Your party is mainly composed of 5 heroes(you can have less than 5 but who would do that?). Your heroes will be divided into 2 sections, the front and rear. Usually Tankers are used in the front since is the area that is most attacked, therefore you need tanks to take the big damage from the other units, but also you use Hybrids. The rear is usually used for Healers, Dealers and Hybrids since they lack Hp and Defense(this might not apply in the Hybrids type).

    All Heroes have at least 2 skills(there is an exemption with 1 star heroes that only have 1), and they are divided into different types of skill:

    Target: Single Enemy, Single Ally, All Enemies, All Allies, and Self

    Type: Buff, Damage, Debuff, and Healing

    Effects:
    - Blind: Your hero can’t do normal attack (this will make hero with high dexterity useless in the battle)
    - Confuse: It’s basically a stun with additional effect (attack friendly member).
    - Freeze: Hero that frozen can’t be healed/buffed/attacked
    - Silence: Can’t cast spell
    - Stun: can’t do anything
    - Remove Enemy Spell
    - Increase Attack by X% amount
    - Increase Evasion by X% amount
    - Increase Dexterity by X% amount
    - Increase Armor by X% amount
    - Immune to damage

    Congratulations, with this you have complete the basics of the game.

    Energy and Stamina
    Energy and stamina are the points you will use to do campaign mode, enter dungeons, time attack, arena, treasure hunt and raid.

    Energy is used on Campaign mode and Treasure Hunt

    Stamina is used to do Arena, Raid bosses, Dungeon and Time attack.

    Both of this are measured in numbers such as 20/20, when entering ay mode an specific amount will be deducted. Both Stamina and Energy are refilled by 1 point every 10 minutes.

    Stats
    In like any other game this game has:
    -HP
    -Defense
    -Attack
    -Dexterity(Determines which unit will attack first. Higher Dex means that unit will attack first. Usually attackers have the highest dexterity of the game).

    Dex is useful when it comes to wear off a debuff, the more Dex means you go first. Therefore you will get out of status effects faster as that hero will take its turn before other heroes, thus the two turns of being stunned/frozen/etc will go by quicker.

    -Focus
    Can't be counted as a stats but it plays a significant role in the game, this can be only increased by equipping items or using skills that increase it . Focus is used to attack units that have lower HP than all the others.

    Types of Modes
    There are a few types of game play modes in this game:

    -Campaign: The regular way of playing, you will unlock maps and worlds as your progress in the game.

    -Arena(Unlocked at level 4): Face enemies at the same % rank that you are in Arena.

    -Raid boss: Face the world raid boss.

    -Treasure Hunt: Obtain some rare equipment or even Heroes by completing the missions within the time limit.

    -Time attack(Unlocked at level 8): Beat the highest amount of enemies possible within the time limit to obtain a buff that lasts 2 hours, might vary from using 1 less point of energy er stage to increase attack/defense/critical/Hp/Focus/Dexterity on your units.

    -Dungeon: Beat the floor you are currently in and you will be awarded. The awards can vary from Heroes to gold, equipment, gold or carats.


    Heroes and Star Tier
    In this game you have 6 Tiers of Heroes, going from 1 star(Lowest Tier) to 6 Stars(Highest Tier).

    Why should I level up 1 Star heroes? They are useless to me!

    Surprise! every time you master a new hero(doesn't mater Star Tier as long as its the first time) you will be awarded with 5 carats and +5 yo your maximum honor points vault... You know what they say, gotta catch em all!... and master of course.
    1* heroes
    [​IMG]

    These heroes are very easy to get, and they’re your “carat resource” in an early game. You can get many 1* heroes easily from the random drop on a mission.

    Remember that Hello Hero always boosts hero drop rate on a certain area depends days of the week (New York Time). See the table below

    Days​
    Bonus Drop Rate Area
    Monday​
    Desert of Sandstorms
    Tuesday​
    Sweet Cookie Farm
    Wednesday​
    Deep Sea Ravine
    Thursday​
    Wondrous Thornland
    Friday​
    Abandoned Advance Base
    Saturday​
    Keronic Base
    Sunday​
    All Stages (including Cucubita)

    Buy heroes using honor point also gives you a lot of 1* heroes (don’t expect a hero higher than 1* grade when using honor points, it’s possible but very rare).
    2* heroes
    [​IMG]

    2* heroes also can be obtained from random drop on a mission, but it’s very rare. I suggest you don’t fuse 2 “1* heroes” (+5) at the beginning of the game. Just master all 1 star heroes available and then farm on hell level on certain area based on boosted day; you have a chance to get any 2 star heroes from that area.

    3* heroes
    [​IMG]

    Save your carats and wait until you have 300 carats so you can buy royal pack. The royal packs have a very high chance to give you 3 star heroes. IMO, this the best source to complete your 3 star collection. Sometimes I level up same heroes to 30 (even after obtaining the carats reward) so I can have “material”’ to get 4 star heroes.

    4* heroes
    [​IMG]

    If you buy royal packs, you will get at least one epic (4 star) hero, other than that simply fusing 3 star heroes to get this one.

    5* and 6* heroes
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    These types are very rare, you will need a lot of fusing, and that’s where the game starts J. Don’t expect to get them while buying packs using honor and carats (although it’s possible).


    Upgrading, Enhancing, Fusion
    and Mutate

    [​IMG]
    Upgrading:
    This option can be found in the "Hero" menu where you review your heroes, it will be located in the bottom right hand side of the screen.

    Upgrading is very important in the growth of your team, and will help you to get better ranks in arena, raid and even beat some dungeons/stages. Every successful upgrade (+1) will add the hero with 10% more status (from base status). Upgrading takes effect on each level, so you don’t need to upgrade at level 30 to get the maximum benefit. The maximum amount of upgrades you can apply to a Hero is (+5)

    Remember that +5 lower tier hero is stronger than higher tier hero without any upgrade (one tier difference).

    Example:
    4*Nidhogg +5 Stats

    Attack/ Defense/ Health/ Dex
    420 / 277 / 1065 / 16

    5* Radon Sats

    Attack/ Defense/ Health/ Dex
    340 / 224 / 840 / 18

    From the status comparison above, you can see that Radon only wins in terms of dexterity, it will have a status about as same as +5 Nidhogg when it gets +3 upgrade, but you may want to know that upgrading higher tier heroes is much harder than lower tier heroes.


    Fuse:
    In order for you to obtain higher Star Tier Heroes you can fuse two heroes of the same star tier fully maxed and upgraded(two random hero lv 30 (+5)). However, when you fuse you will obtain a RANDOM hero, the only thing is guaranteed is that it will be of the next star tier, but the hero you will obtain is random, so don't expect to get a certain unit unless you get really lucky, its all RNG based.

    Examples:
    - Amelia lvl 30 (+5) with Destroyer Schaken lvl 30 (+5) can be fused since they’re 3 star heroes. The result of this fusion will be RANDOM 4 star hero.

    - Amelia lvl 30 (+5) with Harold Lvl 30 (+5) won’t work, because Amelia is 3 star hero, but harold is only 2 star.

    Recommendation:
    Don’t fuse your heroes immediately after you get two “+5 hero”, better build a solid team first and use the reserved heroes for fusion.
    Fusion guide
    Star difference Upgrade chance
    0 100%
    1 50%
    2 25%
    3 10%
    4 1%
    5 0%
    Example: if you upgrade 3 star using 1 star heroes then you only get 25% chance (2 star difference)

    1* heroes
    [​IMG]

    Don’t bother to upgrade 1* heroes. They’re simply food (for upgrading higher star heroes). However, always max your 1* heroes (only for 1st time) to level 30 first before using them as a food (so you get that 5 carats and + 5 max honor points).

    Example: if you get Aaron for the 1st time, don’t use it as an upgrade material, level it up to level 30 first so you get 5 carats and 5 max honor points, if you happen to get another Aaron (from honor point shop), you can use it immediately for upgrade material (no need to level it up to 30).

    2* Heroes
    [​IMG]

    Same as 1* heroes, they’re simply food. However, don’t use this hero to upgrade lower 3* or 4* heroes. You will know why later. At the beginning phase of the game you may want to use lvl 30 heroes to make 3 star heroes. The upgrade cost:

    Upgrade level Golds/upgrade
    “+1″ 1100
    “+2″ 1760
    “+3″ 2420
    “+4″ 3080
    “+5″ 3740
    3* Heroes
    [​IMG]

    This is your starting point; you will get many 3 star heroes from purchasing royal packs (gathering your first 300 jewels is easy ;about 1-2 weeks from my experience), do not to buy premium packs!!!! Because you won’t get one guaranteed 4* from the royal pack. Premium pack doesn’t have a better chance to get 5* or 6* heroes, so please don’t delude yourself by thinking that. Only enhance 3* heroes with 1* heroes, 25% chance is a lot, yes a lot. The upgrade cost:

    Upgrade level Golds/upgrade
    “+1″ 1700
    “+2″ 2720
    “+3″ 3740
    “+4″ 4760
    “+5″ 5780

    Tips
    -Maxed level 30 heroes (1st time only) can be used for fusion to get 4 * heroes.
    - Keep duplicated 3* heroes (that you have been mastered) or use them to enhance those heroes if you find them useful (such as Amelia, Destroyer Schaken, etc).
    4* Heroes
    [​IMG]

    You will get these heroes from royal packs and fusing 3* star heroes which you upgrade. I recommend you to only use 1 star hero when upgrading these heroes. You may think 10% is small but it’s quite high in my opinion. The upgrade cost:

    Upgrade level Golds/upgrade
    “+1″ 2300
    “+2″ 3680
    “+3″ 5060
    “+4″ 6440
    “+5″ 7820

    On this level, you can start equip your favorite hero with good equipment such as 4 star equipment (no need strict saving) . You will have 4* heroes for quite long time.

    5* Heroes
    [​IMG]

    Your journey to get strongest hero is almost there (still far though, just want to cheer you up). The upgrade cost:

    Upgrade level Golds/upgrade
    “+1″ 2900
    “+2″ 4640
    “+3″ 6380
    “+4″ 8120
    “+5″ 9860

    This is why I told you to save 2 star heroes before. 2 star heroes are quite rare (unlike one star heroes which can be obtained easily via honor points). Only use 3 star heroes for upgrade when your hero has already reached “+4”upgrade. You should know by now why I don’t recommend you to use 3 star heroes for upgrading 5 star heroes, it’s because….
    6* Heroes
    [​IMG]

    This is where the hell starts to begin. 3 star heroes only give you 10% chance to success…. However, if you have followed my advice you should have a solid team of 5* heroes (+5). This should be able to make you reach High ranks on the arena battle and BOSS raid, which make you able to gather an enormous amount of carat per week. Use those carat to buy royal pack and upgrade your hero until you have 6* heroes (+5 upgrade). The upgrade cost:

    Upgrade level Golds/upgrade
    “+1″
    “+2″
    “+3″
    “+4″
    “+5″

    I still don’t have 6* heroes and will update the table cost once I get the data. Which it should be within this week. Also if you someone knows it feel free to leave a comment with the respected amount of gold used per level.

    Enhancement:
    Enhancement allows you to raise the cap level of an specific hero for 3 more levels(meaning cap level would be 33). However, in order to do this you need to have 2 copies of the same hero.

    I personally don't recommend Enhancing any unit unless its a 6 star hero because basically you just lost the opportunity of making a higher tier hero.

    Also leveling the hero from lv 30 to lv 33 takes a lot of effort. In fact, is harder to level up your hero to lv 33 than from lv 1 to lv 30, so be patient.

    In addition your unit will get a gold aura and will have a #1 in their Hero card as shown here

    [​IMG]



    Mutate:
    This option is only available for 6 star heroes. What it does is that it "mutates" your hero to another 6 star hero for an specific amount of gold(700k), and can only be applied to heroes that are mastered.

    Carats and Honor
    Carats are the Premium currency of the game, also known as IAP. One of the perks of this game is that you can get enormous amounts of it just by playing it.

    [​IMG]

    Tips:
    - Master EVERY hero you get regardless of their star tier or class.
    - Participate in Raid bosses even though you might only do 1 damage to the boss, you will still get Carats at the end of the day.
    - Participate in Arena, the higher the rank the more carats you will get.
    - Do the daily missions, after 7 consecutive days of doing missions you will get 10 carats.
    - Some dungeon levels have carats as rewards.

    Floor Carats
    9 3
    14 5
    19 7
    24 10
    29 15
    34 20
    39 25
    44 30
    49 35
    59 35
    65 35
    75 35

    Recommendation
    Save up all your carats all the way up to 300 so you can do the Royal pack( gives you 10 heroes and a guaranteed 4 star hero or higher tier, mostly 4 stars). I tell this because you miss the chance to get one guaranteed epic from the Royal Pack. Premium pack doesn’t have better chance to obtain 5/6 star heroes. I've seen people do premium summon(30 carat) and get a 2 star hero, please don't do that.


    Honor
    Honor can be used in two different ways, to summon a hero or equipment(summon hero is the best option hence you can farm 4 star equipment is regular stages).

    You can obtain Honor by clearing Missions, from friends or in Arena.

    Your honor will increase by 5 every time you master a Hero, so make sure you master all your heroes.

    Another tip is that you always save you Honor near to the max, sometimes there will be honor events(50% less honor used to summon) so you can obtain a lot of fodders to upgrade.


    [​IMG]
    If you obtain Honor points through dungeons or some special missions, they won't expire in your Message box, so just keep them there and wait for the event to come

    [​IMG]




    Edit:
    I will finish the guide tomorrow since I have no time to do so today. Feel free to leave any comments/suggestions.

    Tomorrows update:
    • Detailed info of each dungeon floor
    • FQA

    It might help to mention that freeze effectively takes that unit out of battles for the rounds its frozen as neither you nor your opponents can affect it in any way. Your units can't attack on it and aoe skills will ignore that frozen unit.

    Dex is useful in that if you have more dex, you will get out of status effects faster as that hero will take its turn more and thus its two turns of being stunned/frozen/etc will go by faster.

    The first part is done, I just added "attacked" because all the other descriptions were already there.

    @JChunks
    Focus is used to attack units that have lower HP than all the others.

    One tip is to never buy the 4x speed. I bought the 1 day 4x to quickly level up Superstar Talisa (got works and wanted it done first thing in the morning). Now I can't tolerate the slow speed of 2x. Decided to buy the 30 days one.

    Lol, I would include it but the thing is that depends in the type of player you are.

    I also bought the 4X speed but I think is way too quick, plus when doing raid battles/time attack you get less hits. Yes, you might level up your units in less time, but I don't like it. On the other hand there is people that love it or get used to it... like you xD

    So I think that really depends on the type of player you are, if you are deep into the game you might want to buy it, but if you play the game while doing other things there is no really use to it, like me(while writing I am leveling up my heroes with 2x speed lol).

    Thanks for the suggestion though, I will make a suggestion about it in the guide. ;)

    How exactly does 2x and 4x reduce the amount of hits? I saw them mention this on the facebook page but I'm curious as to how it works. Do your units just skip their attack turns more or something when it's on a faster speed?

    I don't know how to explain it, but I've noticed that time goes faster somehow.

    I use to do time attack with 2X of speed, but could only reach stages 2-3. I did time attack with the regular speed and managed to get to stage 6.

    I use 4x speed only when I want to speed level or spend carats to farm units. For example, I may set aside a day (on weekends or during the current event when the hero drop rate is higher) and do my best to get a -1 energy buff from time attack. As the buff only lasts 2 hours, it may be worthwhile to buy 4x speed to maximise the number of runs you want to do (i.e. 1 stamina for normal maps instead of 2 stamina). Only recommended if you really want to spend lots of carats on farming units though.

    You are not the only one XD

    I am currently working on it, it seems that the best way to obtain enormous amount of gold is by buying it with carats, otherwise it will take you a long time to farm. However, you can speed up this process by doing dungeons and selling equipment.

    That's all I have so far, sorry >.<

    The cucubita 8-5 gives 650 gold per stamina. For 30 stamina that translate to 19.5k gold. With current event, it can give 39k gold.
    Treasure Hunt 4 stamina, as Kitsel previously suggested, gives a little bit more at 750 gold per stamina but gives lower player xp.
    Other stages in cucubita or hell might give even more but I've not tried them. Someone might know better.

    Thanks guys...This is the part that is irritating, along with the +5 for 4*/5*/6* getting 3* to +5 is cake

    I've been fighting in the arena since level 2. I just started this game the day after the latest update, maybe it's a new change?
