It’s your time to shine in Heroes of Incredible Tales. This guide for Heroes of Incredible Tales takes you over the classes, maps and includes tips and tricks to get you started.
Picking the class that is right for you.
There are currently 4 character classes available in Heroes of Incredible Tales. You can play two characters for free and have the option to buy the other character. The 4 character choices are Lucas, Kiki, Anika and Hugo. Each class will have up to six unique class skills, which can be unlocked when the character reaches level 1, level 10, level 20, level 30, level 40 and level 52.
But there are only three skills a player will be able to use on the battle stages. However you will have combo attributes you can enhance, as well as passive attributes to further strength your character.
Lucas is a dual wielding and fast DPS class and seems to be liked for PVE. Anika wields a Scythe and is a mix of damage and speed acrobatic character with somewhat weak defenses. Kiki is the powerful mage orientated class with CC. Hugo wields giant two-handed weapons and seems to be favored for PVP. However beyond the basic class, using your skill points you can almost turn these characters into anything that you want. Thankfully you can reset your points as much as you want to try different builds.

Auto battle and Auto Skill.
Heroes of Incredible Tales was nice enough to include not only a Auto battle button but an Auto Skill modifier. Auto Battle is free to use and doesn’t require you to complete a stage prior to using it. So to minimize effort, you can use auto battle to allow the AI to control your characters movement while you enjoy the freedom of using your skills and abilities at will.
Going beyond that you have the Auto Skill modifier which you turn on at the start of a stage, and it stays on until you turn it off. The difference with Auto Skill is it will cost you gold to keep it on, and steadily increases as you clear stages. In most cases I have found that you gain more gold than it cost to use Auto skill!
Auto Skill doesn’t execute abilities perfectly, so keep that in mind on more difficult battles. Stages where you’re only just barely beating the stage requirements may require you to manually input your skills as well as your guard. Guarding is the only thing Auto Skill doesn’t have control over.
You may have overlooked this while going through Heroes of incredible tales stages but just above certain stages the game identifies spots that have specific rewards. For example the Item based stage has more blue items than the other stages, the gold stage has double the amount of gold as a standard stage, and the exp stage is great for sweeping to get levels.
After a certain level you will unlock the Challenge map. Independent of the story mode stages, you have your Raid maps, Guild wars and the Tower of Trials. Going into the Sanctuary of Blood and clearing this area allows you to select another Hero to pair with your own, and complete stages for additional rewards. In this case it will be gems that you will use to slot on equipment pieces to enhance them with various stats.
