Hero Crystals (also named Power Crystals) are used to increase the level of your generals along with their stats to a maximum of level 80. Hero powers/abilities will also get stronger but currently only a few heroes special abilities increase with along with their levels.
Obtaining Hero Crystals
Crystals are obtained in the Land of Mist area of Guild Conquest. If you own a Land of Mist land (either through clearing the land of monsters or through conquering it through Player vs. Player combat) you will be able to pray to Cassandra. Your probability to receive a crystal is based on how many Land of Mist lands your guild owns.
Hero Crystals may also be purchased through the Conquest Path Shop upon passing certain lifetime point totals.
Hero Crystal Chances
Your normal chance of obtaining a Hero Crystal depends on how many lands in the Land of Mist you own:
Land of Mist
Additionally, on Fridays and Saturdays, guilds above level 4 have an increased chance to gain a hero crystal depending on the conquest level of the guild. This additional chance to gain a crystal on the given days is simply added to the base chance. For example, if your guild holds 3 Lands of Mist and is Guild level 10, your chance to get a crystal on the boosting days is 35+60=95%.
for Hero Crystal
With the increase of the level cap to 80, Heroes now require additional materials to level up at certain levels. Starting at level 20, Heroes will require special colored Evolution Crystals, with the color and quantity of the requirements varying based on the type of the hero. These special requirements, in addition to a Hero Crystal, are needed every 5 levels starting at level 20.
Evolution Crystals are only available on specific days, and each crystal drops from a specific type of activity. Blue Evolution Crystals drop from spending Conquest Tokens in Conquest Land of Earth Castles on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Green Evolution Crystals drop from Excavation Quests and Monsters on Fridays and Saturdays. Red Evolution Crystals drop from Monsters on Sundays and Mondays.
Blue crystals are the primary material needed to increase the maximum level of Balanced generals.
The chances for Blue Crystals to drop from Land of Earth battles is dependent upon the level of the guild that the player is in. A guild must be at least level 5 to be able to participate in Land of Earth in conquest. The probabilities, as given by a developer, are as follows:
Crystals in LoE
Note: We have seen evidence that the blue crystal rate at level 12 may be lower than 17 and more like 12.5%, and that the crystal drop rates for 13 may be a bit higher than 18%... Its entirely possible that the 13-24 range has been compressed a bit and level 12 moved back into the 5-11 range... This is based on dozens but not hundreds of hits, as such no changes the rates have been made.
Green Crystals are the primary material needed to level Defensive generals.
Green Crystals are available through Essence Excavation Quests or through Monsters on Fridays and Saturdays. For Excavation Quests, they have a 15% chance to drop on collection, at the same time that the player receives Essences. For Monsters, they have a 15% chance to drop when the player receives essences.
Red Crystals are the primary material needed to level Aggressive generals.
Red Crystals are available through Monsters on Sundays and Mondays. They have a 20% chance to drop when the player receives essences.
Past level 19, the requirements to increase a hero's maximum level differ based on the type of hero and the Level that you are trying to increase it to. Normally, only a single hero crystal is needed, but every 5 levels, more materials are needed.
At these special levels, heroes gain extra stats, depending on their type.
While Heroes can level up by using Energy and stamina, there are now recipes available to create Hero Potions, which will give an instantaneous boost to hero leveling. Each potion gives 85000 hero exp. Each hero is different in the amount of exp required for leveling. The lower heroes have low level/exp ratio while the new and higher heroes have a high level/exp. ratio. Which means this boost will range from giving a little towards leveling a high level general (the recent epic chest generals) to giving several levels for generals like Strider or Sano.
These potions are available by getting Powder, which is dropped along with essence from monsters on particular days. The chance to receive this powder is based on guild level, along with how many Land of Mist lands that your guild owns.
The base chance for a powder drop is 10%, for players in guilds with no lands, and for players that are not in a guild. Any lands owned add to this chance, so a rank 24 guild that currently holds 10 mist lands will have a 27% chance for a powder drop along with essence.
