The Hobbit: KoM Heroes Guide
Heroes lead your armies into battle and give valuable boosts to your troops and city. To recruit more Heroes, upgrade your Great Hall. Heroes can earn experience points (needed to level up) from battle and via Items in the shop.
You can also assign your Heroes to a position within your city. As long as the Heroes is assigned to a position, they will provide boosts to your City, however, they require gold for their salary and will not be available for marches.
Your Hero is an essential part of the game and therefore it is important to level at least one of them up. The more experience a Hero has the higher their level will be. The higher their level is the greater the benefits they will bestow upon you and your city. Each level increase can give a greater advantage in battle, a 1% incease in resource production or a 0.5% decrease in training, research or build times. A Hero begins at level 1 with no experience and can reach a maximum of level 200. Each subsequent level requires an ever increasing amount of experience to gain.
To calculate the experience points required to upgrade your Hero to the next level use the following formula:
Experience = Next Level * 20 – 20
Therefore to upgrade from level 1 to level 2 an additional 20 experience points are required. To upgrade from level 199 to level 200 an additional 3980 experience points are required.
To calculate the total experience points required to reach any given level use the following formula:
Total Experience = 10 * Level * (Level – 1)
Therefore to reach level 200 from 0 a total of 398000 experience points are required. You need 7 Train Gandalf, 4 Train With Archer’s and 8 Train With Warrior’s in gems 884. However, for just 800 gems, you can buy 8 Train With Gandalf to reach 400,000 experience and achieve Level 200, a saving of 84 gems. Doing this does negate you from taking advantage of the tip below.
If you don’t feel like doing the math yourself, Please view the Heroes EXP table here:
A hero can achieve a level greater than 200 by using this little trick. Increase your Knight to level 199 plus 3300 experience. Be careful not to increase your Hero to level 200 as you will not be able to increase the level any further. Then use a Train with Gandalf item and your Hero will be level 212. Using a Train with Gandalf from level 187 plus 180 experience points onwards will result in a Hero of level 200 or greater.
Hero can earn experience (needed to level up) from battle and via Items in the shop.
The fastest way a Hero can earn experience is through the use of shop items. Each item bestows a different amount of experience on the Hero. These items are purchased with Mithril or won through Gift.
[color=Green]Train With Warriors Gives: 1,000 experience to your hero’s (8 Mithril)
Train with Archers Gives: 10,000 experience to your Hero (30 Mithril)
Train with Gandalf:50,000 experience to your Hero (100 Mithril)
The other way a Hero can earn experience is through battle. Each success full attack that a Hero leads will earn that Hero 20 experience points. For a lost battle the Hero will earn 10 experience points.
The cheapest way to earn experience through battle is to attack the same target over and over again. For a no loss way of gaining experience find an inactive player with zero might and attack repeatedly. If you can’t attack another player because you are still under beginner protection then find the closest level 1 wild to your city and attack it with your highest level Hero. Once the wild has been cleared of troops you can attack it repeatedly with little or even no loss of troops.
Hero’s can be assigned to different positions and each one gives a different benefit. The higher the Heroes level the greater the benefit will be.
Production: – 1% per level increase in Resource production of your City
Training: – 0.5% per level increase in Training speed, Attack and Life of defenders
Research: – 0.5% per level increase in Research speed
Construction: – 0.5% per level increase in Construction and Defense Building speed
A different Hero can be assigned to each position simultaneously but this comes at a cost. Assigning a hero to a position comes at the expense of gold. Each level, of each assigned Hero, will cost 20 gold per hour. So Basically Heroes are Demi Gods wait you do your bidding..!
Rather than assigning a Hero to each position, and using up all that gold, you can try this little trick. Before you start a new training, research or build queue assign your highest level Hero to the relevent position. Start the new queue and then place your Hero back into the Steward position. You will receive the benefit of decreased time for your new queue, still get your resource production bonus and use less gold in the process.
Hero will deassign automatically if you run out of gold. This is especially true when you are away from the game. If you are attacked and all your gold is plundered then your Hero will also deassign. This will happen even if your gold production exceeds your Hero salary.Other The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-Earth Articles
