New in v4.0 is a hero 'Prestige' system, which is similar to the regular hero experience/rank system and runs in parallel with it.
- 5 Prestige levels (similar to stars), with 10 sub-levels each
- Progress up sublevels by earning prestige experience points in Global Combat (GC) or with diamonds
- After each 10 sublevels, unlock the next Prestige level with Prestige tokens
- Win 'cryptokeys' from GC and events
- Buy 'Wildcard' random hero boosts in the 'Black Market' with cryptokeys
- Equip your heroes with wildcards; higher prestige levels allow use of more/better wildcards
Hero Prestige Edit
There are 5 prestige levels (similar to stars), with 10 sub-levels within each. Every hero starts at Prestige level 1, sublevel 1 (P1.1). Heroes earn Prestige experience points from participation in the 'Global Conflict' (GC) alliance competitions, which allow advancement up the sub-levels to sub-level 10 (P1.10). Players can also use 'quick level up' with diamonds or celerium in the same way - and at the same rates - as the regular hero experience system (*see comment at bottom of the page).
Once a player reaches sub-level 10, the next Prestige level can be unlocked with 'Prestige tokens'; one token to unlock lvl P2, 2 tokens for lvl P3, etc up to P5.
Each step in prestige level improves a hero's 'garrison bonus', which raises the hero stats during GC.
Black Market Edit
The Black Market is accessed from the main screen via the 'War' button.
In the Black Market, players use a new currency, Cryptokeys, gained from GC and events, to buy hero wildcards and other resources. Black market offers refresh regularly.
Wildcards apply permanent boosts to hero stats. They are purchased from the Black Market using Cryptokeys. There are 4 wildcard levels: Common, rare, epic, legendary. On the hero's 'Wildcards' tab, you are able to equip your hero with purchased wildcards, which improve one or a combination of hero HP, DPS, Accuracy and Aura. Each of the hero prestige lvls 1-5 equate to a wildcard 'coin' which allows you to equip that hero with wildcards to the value of the available coins.
Example: Prestige lvl P3 = 3 wildcard coins, allowing use of 3 common wildcards, one common + 1 rare, or 1 epic wildcard, but there are not enough coins to equip a legendary wildcard.
Any number of wildcards can be held in inventory, but there is not yet a system for selling them. Note that wildcards can be transferred from hero to hero as needed.

Wildcards from the Black Market are assigned random values at time of purchase, just like perks.
