The Inventory is where all your loot from Adventure Mode goes. Here, the player can equip, store and manage their hero's armor, weapons and accessories.

Your inventory items will stay as it is, even after rebirthing. Everything is safe here unless you delete it yourself, but loot only drops while online. If the inventory is full you won't get any new drops. To make managing easier, you can get more Inventory space and buy Loot Filters.

The inventory screen also enables access to the Item listItem DaycareMacGuffin Fragments, Infinity Cube and Loadouts.

Items & Equipment[]

Each Zone of Adventure Mode drops different sets of items. In the beginning, it may seem that it doesn't make a big difference, but as you progress, these boosts and the special buffs become vital, making equipment one of THE biggest keys to progressing further into the game.

See Adventure zones for more details. 

Leveling-up Items[]

Items can be leveled up to 100.

  • To increase their level, merge 2 similar items (of any level) either by Drag and drop or using the shortcut D + Click.
  • The new level will be the sum of the levels of the two items, +1.
  • Items can drop at various levels, the most common being level 0. See Higher Drop Levels .
  • Level 100 items has double the stats of its level 0 counterpart.
  • By upgrading the level of an item, you raise the cap of stats by 1% per level, rounded down.
  • The resulting merged item will have the max number in each stat between the original items - e.g., if the first had 3 power and 1 toughness and the second had 1 power and 5 toughness. After merging, the result will have 3 power and 5 toughness.
  • When you reach level 100 on each item of a set you can be rewarded with completion bonus.
  • The game provides means to automate the process of leveling up and boosting of items, see AutoMerge & AutoBoost.
  • When grinding for duplicate items, a good strategy is to only fight bosses. This can be achieved by quickly leaving and reentering the zone whenever a non-boss enemy spawns.

Tips About The Infamous "Forest Pendant"[]

The Forest Pendant is a piece of jewelry that may at first seem completely worthless. Little do you know that, with a lot of patience, it can turn into one of the best items in the game!

  1. Leveling up the Forest Pendant to Level 100 requires 101 level 0 Forest Pendants, since it starts at Level 0.
  2. Once the Forest Pendant reaches Level 100, it ascends into a 0 lvl "Ascended Forest Pendant".
  3. To level up the Ascended Forest Pendant to Level 100 requires 101 Ascended Forest Pendants, which each require 101 "Regular" Forest Pendants. -Don't freak out while reading this because the pendants will drop at higher levels as you progress.
  4. If your Ascended Forest Pendant reaches Level 100, it can Ascend again into a Level 0 "Ascended Ascended Forest Pendant."
  5.  ...and so on. 

The Forest Pendant can be ascended nine times! In other words: Forest PendantAscended Forest PendantAscended Ascended Forest PendantAscended Ascended Ascended PendantAscended x4 PendantAscended x5 PendantAscended x6 PendantAscended x7 PendantAscended x8 PendantAscended x9 Pendant

The Ascended Forest Pendant has a great max power and toughness amount on it, but its most rewarding features would be its special boosts: drop chance and gold drops. Once you ascend the pendant to the "Ascended Ascended Forest Pendant" it achieves even more rewarding stats as well as a third special boost of Magic Power.
