These as well as the other heroes that you can unlock in the game will each have unique traits such as flying, mechanic, dragaon scales, inebriated, healer, hulking, mounted, and polearm. Therefore, in order to be able to build a team that best suits your playstyle it is important that you familiarize yourself with the different traits and skills of the heroes, so you understand the tactical advantages and benefits each of them offer during battle. You can view all the heroes you have collected and also those that are currently unlocked by tapping the 'Heroes' tab that is located at the bottom of the screen. The heroes that you do not have will have their icons greyed out.

How to Inflict Additional Damage
Heroes and enemies are both able to inflict additional damage if they have an element and class advantage, the three classes in Rivengard are Warrior, Rogue, and Mage. It is important before you engage in combat with another unit you first check their element and class. Listed below is the additional damage each class inflicts on another class.
- Warrior class inflicts additional damage against Rogue class
- Rouge class inflicts additional damage against Mage class
- Mage class inflicts additional damage against Warrior class
Once you know the element and class of the enemy you can now look to get an edge in the forthcoming battle by selecting the heroes that have a element/class advantage against the enemy lineup. For example, if the enemy lineup is composed of mostly Warriors you should build your team towards mages as doing so will bypass the physical armor they wear. If you want to check your heroes element and info you can do so by going to 'Profile' which is in the upper left corner of the screen.
How to Get Free Gems
The premium currency in Rivengard is gems, and they are used at the Summoning Portal at the shop to get heroes. Rivengard has a 'refer and earn' system where each player gets a unique referral code that can be shared with friends in order to earn free gems. This can be simply done by tapping the gear icon that is located in the top-right corner of the screen and selecting 'Refer a Friend' which will enable you to see your referral code. All you need to do now is share that code with friends providing they are connected to Gamescenter or Google Play Games. Once your friends submit the code in the 'Refer a Friend' menu you will earn gems and other rewards.
