HOW DO BATTLES WORK?
Each player starts the battle with a few cards in their hand. Players tap or drag Minion and Spell cards onto the battlefield with the aim to attack the enemy Portal. In the beginning, 1 card is drawn from your deck every few seconds until your hand is full and the drawn card will automatically be deleted. You can drag a card into the garbage to destroy it to make room for a new card or you can play the card creating space. As the battle escalates, you draw 2 cards instead of 1. Equipped spells have their own slots and are available after a certain time, they then go on cooldown for a bit after use. Cards are drawn randomly from your deck. On the left side, you will see your mana. Mana regenerates over time and the mana cap increases as the battle escalates. Mana regeneration is fixed and identical for both players. At one point, you will have the option to draw a card instantly at the cost of some mana. This is a good strategy for when you have a lot of mana and no cards in your hand.
WHAT ARE MINIONS?
Minions are cards that you collect and do the battling for your Hero. Each Minion has their own special feature, make sure to read each Minion description when you get them. There are 4 rarities when it comes to Minion cards: common, rare, epic and legendary.
HOW DO MINIONS BEHAVE IN BATTLE?
You can for the most part only spawn Minions on your side of the battlefield. Certain Minions can be spawned anywhere. You can choose the lane you want to spawn the Minion and it will stay in that lane. Minions always attack the enemy Minions first prior to the Portals. The lane needs to be clear before the Minions can attack the portal, except when the minion has area damage and is at the end of the lane and can hit both the Minion and Portals simultaneously. Also, some Minions have special abilities that can bypass other Minions and strike directly at their Portals.
WHAT ARE SPELLS?
Spells are unique powers that each Hero possesses. You can equip up to two spells per Hero in any given battle. They have their own slots in battle and will automatically refresh after you use them after some time. Spells can be evolved to become even stronger.
WHAT IS MANA?
Mana is the magical energy used during battle to cast Minions. Mana is automatically generated over time. The maximum mana you can have during the battle is 12. You start the battle with 2 and that number increases every time a new card is drawn.
HOW DO I EDIT MY DECK?
When you click on battle and enter the pre-battle screen, you are able to alter your deck. At the beginning of the game, you can have 6 cards in your battle deck. Once you reach 7 unique Minion cards, you then have access to a full deck of 12. You can then mix and match up to 12 cards and even equip 2 of the same cards at one time(this results in this card appearing at double the rate). However, you are only allowed 1 legendary of the same type in your deck.
