Deadly daggers, swooping swords, soaring spears and hefty helmets. Once your Armoury is built after HQ level two your gladiators are ready to make the most of the world of weapons that Gladiator Heroes has to offer.
Weapons of war
The equipment that you find throughout Gladiator Heroes is so much more than just a piece of armour or a weapon.
Not only do gleaming pieces of equipment make your gladiators look even mightier than normal, but they also impact the statistics of your warriors.
Equipping weapons and armour will improve the armour, defence, attack and damage statistics of your gladiators which can greatly aid them in battle.
As mentioned in a previous blog post about defeating The Wall, some bosses and powerful opponents can absorb low damage hits or inflict high damage from their attacks. This makes them less likely to be injured and more likely the destroy your gladiators.
By equipping your team with the strongest armour and most impressive weapons you will drastically improve your combat tactics. This makes victory much more likely and the Gods even more impressed by your battle performance.
When looking at the weapons you own in the Armoury, you will sometimes see a star symbol on the weapon. This means that the item improves more that one statistic once equipped.
For instance, a shield showing the star symbol could improve your gladiator’s armour and defence statistics instead of just the armour statistics. This means additional assistances in combat and could mean a closer shot at glory.
The colours of power
In Gladiator Heroes you will notice that each item is shown on a coloured card. The colour of an item depicts its rarity and quality:
– Blue: Common
– Green: Uncommon
– Purple: Rare
– Red: Epic
– Yellow: Legendary
This means that the rarer the weapon, the higher its statatics are when compared to a different rarity weapon of the same rank and level.
This means it is extremely unlikely to come across legendary weapons but that they are extremely worthwhile because they will be among the most powerful weapons in the game, therefore contributing greatly to your gladiator’s success in combat.
Finding the tools of the trade
Weapons and armour are among the most sought after items in the game and are an exciting thing to come across, however there are multiple ways to find them in the luck of the draw.
After successful combat of any sort, you will be able to select up to 9 chests and will receive the unknown and valuable prizes that are hidden inside. If the Gods think you are worthy and luck is on your side, these free chests will be bursting with weapons of varying rarities to help develop your combat power.
You can also hunt for weapons from chests purchased from the Merchant. Use your multiplayer and challenge tokens to open chests and you might be lucky enough to find an overwhelming amount of equipment!
Helmets are among some of the rarest items in the game however they will only start to drop through chests once the average rank of your gladiators is four or above.
Once this occurs, your chances of finding the mightiest of headgear for your gladiators will greatly increase.
Premium gladiators and legendary weapons
As also mentioned in a previous blog post, Premium gladiators can be one of the best ways to get a fully-equipped legendary gladiator in a matter of seconds.
Purchasing Premium gladiator statues from the Gladiator Residence by using gems not only allows you to hire a guaranteed 5 star rarity gladiator, but also gives you a legendary weapon for each weapon slot unlocked at the rank of gladiator hired.
Whilst this means the price of the statue will increase as the rank hired goes up, this means you get more legendary weapons once hired.
For instance, gladiators hired at rank one will only receive one legendary weapon as this is the only weapon slot unlocked at that point in the gladiator’s evolution. Meanwhile, gladiators hired at rank five will receive five legendary weapons when hired through a Premium statue.
The rank of a newly hired gladiator will be the average rank of your current gladiators. However, in order to ensure your fresh fighter is a specific rank when hired, ALL your current gladiators need to already be on that rank.
