how to attract heroes

Postby theamani185 » Mon Apr 30, 2012 12:15 am

How do you attract heroes? I have 2 tavern rooms, a tavern, and a badger arena. All i want is a knight, and i think he would probably have the lowest requirements, but i can't seem to attract him! :( :( :(












i want to rage quit because of this! :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

And heros need "personal rooms" as well, or do they need some kind of special room? And what is meant by a room "at high 5"?

1. They need tavern rooms, which are the last zone in the menu (the one with the bone bed)

2.This means that the tavern room needs to be at least five cells above the "ground level" - essentially on a hill of at least five layers height.

A good trick is to raise the terrain to the required height in 3x3 area, then lower the edges so that only one floor square remains and use the castle walls and windows to make "gaurd towers" for your highlanders to live in - they aren't very durable atm so not good for much, but if any monsters wander near then the heroes usually engage them and serve as a perfect early warning system thanks to the notifications bar. :D

although this will mean a lot of highlanders sacrifice themselves for the good of your town... :twisted:

but they would have just died in the dungeon anyway :lol:
