  • Level up your Hero: Leveling up will increase their stats as well as power. EXP Drinks are limited, so use them on your strongest heroes.

  • Reinforce your Equipment: Heroes that have equipment with a Rare rating and above can have their items reinforced. You can use other equipment as materials and then strengthen your current equipment.
  • Ascend your Heroes: This can be the tricky part in making your heroes strong. Any duplicates that you have can be combined with your Hero in order for them to get stronger.
