What Does Power Level Do?

Hero Power Level

Hero Power is the average of all your gear combined plus the fixed power increase from your Major Artifact. This determines how "buffed" your heroes are and how well they would perform in a given mission.

Hero Power also determines the power level of gear from chests, enemy drops, and mission rewards that your character will receive. This simply means increasing your Hero Power is essential to obtain even more powerful gear.

Gear Power Level

Gear Power determines the overall effectiveness of the gear. This includes the gear's attack or defense rating, and the bonus stat that it gives.

Its only actual purpose, however, is to raise your Hero Power which in turn increases the power of the obtainable gear from enemies, chests, and mission rewards.

How to Raise Power Level

Equip Stronger Gear

Your Hero Power is directly affected by the average power level of all your gear. The average power of all your equipped gear determines your Hero Power which also increases the Gear Power that your hero will receive from any sources.

We recommend equipping any higher powered gear that you find immediately regardless of its perks or stat bonuses as this will get you to endgame power levels faster. Upon reaching a high power level, you can then begin upgrading gear that fits your build.

Upgrade Major Artifact

While most of your Hero Power comes from the average power of all your equipped gear, Major Artifacts give fixed power boost.

Upgrading your equipped Major Artifacts to max level will give your hero 10 bonus power which gives a huge impact especially if you are currently farming for more powerful gear.
