heroes from a shop for a specific cost (stronger and rarer heroes cost more
gold). To build a great army, you need good gold management. This means that to place
high or win a game, you need a good sense of the macro strategy in Underlords,
not just the hero combinations.
You can use
your gold for three things:
- To buy heroes, which costs between 1 and 5
gold depending on the rarity of the hero.
- To re-roll the shop (refresh the heroes
inside instantly), which costs 2 gold. This helps you find the exact heroes you
need for your upgrades and synergies.
- To purchase experience.
This helps you increase your level faster (you win a little XP every round for free).
Experience: Experience helps you increase your level, which
allows you to include more heroes in your army. For example, in the UI
screenshot above, 9/9 signifies that there are 9 heroes on the board. This is
the maximum possible number for the current level of the player (level 9).
Level 10 is the maximum level.
also gives you a higher chance to find rarer heroes in the shop. For example,
on lvl1 you can find only common (1-cost) heroes. You can find 5-cost heroes
only once you reach lvl8, and the chance increases with higher levels.
Gold: You get gold from a couple of sources. First, you get a set amount of gold each round. Moreover,
you get 1g if you win the round
against your opponent, 0 if you lose it.
There are, however, other more strategically
interesting income sources:
