I don't know if Idle Heroes is on Steam. I'm guessing not. It's heavy on the micro transactions that are mobile games. I'm having fun with it, but don't jump into it to be able to play with me. I'm not sure we have time for two very low commitment grinder games! But seriously, I have no idea how/if we can get on the same server, etc. IF you do though, let me know. Maybe if we start at the same time, we'll end up on the same server. I would start a new account/character. But again, multi play just means we can send each other hearts that help you create heroes and we can be in the same guild beating on the same boss monster. Not a lot of interaction.

Ummm. Random googling for info led me to the fact that people sell their Idle Heroes accounts on Ebay. My account is probably worth about $20 right now!

At lvl 50 you start seeing mirror shards. Find all 13 and you can then do missions while your "mirror image" can still do dungeons and the arena.

Every unlocked achievements gives a +5 bonus to all attributes. If you have 18/50, you get a total bonus of +90 to all attributes for example.
Some of the achievements below are easy, some are for high level-players and some are crazy.
Sometimes an achievement that requires items does not unlock. Unequip an item and equip it again to solve this issue.


Finally 18: reach level 18

Globetrotter: visit all locations in one day. Locations are the 21 regions in the game. Black Forest, Black Water Swamp, Busted Lands, Erogenion, Evernight Forest, Flooded Caldwell, Gnarogrim, Maerwynn, Magmaron, Moldy Forest, Nevermoor, Northrunt, Plains of Oz'Korr, Rotten Lands, Shadowrock Mountain, Skull Island, Split Canyon, Sprawling Jungle, Sunburn Desert, Stumble Steppe, Tusk Mountain.

Dragon Rider: have a Dragon Griffin or Griffin Dragon mount

Naturism: be 24 hours without equipment but in one go! Hint: play as many quests on day 1, then unequip your items. Then equip them again on day 2 and use the remaining hours to do quests. This way, you do not lose gold and XP from quests.

Ri-off Rip-off: beat the Gambler 3 times in a row, either with gold or mushrooms

Heavy Spinner: spin the Wheel 20 times a day

Square Eyes: collect 1,000 Lucky Coins

Lucky Fellow: find 100 mushrooms on quests

Raider: raid 100 fortresses

Invincible: win the first 10 arena fights of the day (the ones you get XP for)

Song of the Blacksmith: hoard 10,000 arcane resources

Sky is the Limit: improve an item 10 times

Miner: mine 100 things

Collecting Mania: scrapbook 90% complete

Anniversary: play for 1 year

For Seven Days: play 7 days in a row

Always On: play 30 days in a row

Reliable: be actively involved in a guild for 10 days...by taking part in guild attacks and defenses and fighting in the guild portal

Elite Guild: reach 5,000 Guild Honor

Big Spender: donate 1,000,000 gold to guild. If your guild bank is full, you need to leave the guild and donate elsewhere. It's the only solution at the moment.

Hero: reach level 100

Elite: reach level 200

Tip of the Iceberg: reach level 300

Superhero: reach level 400

Epic Superhero: reach level 500

Jeweler: have gems in all equipped items

Epic Purist: have only epics equipped

Epic Companions: equip companions with epics only

Alter Ego: cmplete the Magic Mirror

Witchcraft: wear only enchanted items (the Witch enchants your items)

Pet Lover: find the pet nest

Urgent Need: find the Toilet Key, the key to the Arcane Toilet

Shadow World Cruise: defeat the first enemy in Shadow World

Pat Fattening: feed pets 15 times in one day

Animal Trainer: upgrade a pet to level 100

The Count: upgrade all buildings to level 15

The King: fully upgrade all buildings

Collect 'Em All: collect all 49 previous achievements

Decent Guide for character build, pets, items, etc.

On my original account, I'm on the #25 ranked guild, rapidly approaching lvl 200, have opened up most of the game, and might be moving to another guild higher on the rankings list soon. (The leader of mine seems to have gone inactive.)

On the account with Cake (different server as well), I'm creeping on lvl 140 and have recruited the FUCK out of solo players and other guilds. That has moved us into the top 90 and we've got two players near 200, which is a rarity.

A few weeks back our biggest gun left our guild. I replaced him by proposing a merger with another guild. Then a week ago I had two more defections and a bunch of inactives. Today I'm having to turn down high leveled folks who want invites. It may crash and burn tomorrow, but I'm proud of what I've achieved via diplomacy with actual human beings and not AI.

They added an "Arena Manager" game that is a ripoff and scaled down version of Adventure Capitalist.

I'll give the developers this, they aren't resting on their laurels. They are constantly putting in new wrinkles.

Hey Cake, I think I'm thisclose to calling it on this game. Thoughts?

The constant recruiting is really taking a toll. Plus, it seems like all the Euro guilds dominate the game. No idea why, but on both servers it's all Germans and whatnot at the top of the leaderboard.

Our guild's membership doesn't seem to contain enough people who play often enough for us to compete. On my other server that guild has members on non-stop, and the guild is top 10. Seriously, nobody gets to <24 hours, let alone <2d.

I think I'll promote a player or two to officer and see if they bring some life to it.

I'm not nearly as invested as you are. Hell, I'm sure I'm one of the people dragging the guild down! Way behind in levels. Which I guess is a bit better than an inactive. HOWEVER! I do spend mushrooms on guild boosts here and there (and on the pet). I have no need for them otherwise. I don't speed production or buy items with them. When you are done, I'll be done. But till then, it's something to log into for a few minutes to click on stuff and see what the next milestone is.

My other character is about to hit 300. I'm going to see how I feel after that. I know that right now I'm getting to the point where it's becoming like a job, and that's usually when I stop playing something.
