Playing cards: there are three main types of cards, which represent hero abilities: attacks, skills, and heroics. Playing a card costs 1 card play. Select an ability card with left mouse button to activate it, then select a target with left mouse button to confirm the ability. Each turn you receive 3 card plays. Use attack cards to damage enemies and gain heroism. Attack cards damage enemies. All attacks grant 1 heroism when used. Some attacks have added effects like knockback or stun. Heroic cards are powerful and decisive. Playing heroic cards requires heroism. Tip: gain heroism by using cheat codes or playing attack and skill cards. Once you have played your cards, use X to finish your turn.
Minions and elites: there are two types of enemies: minions and elites. Minions have no health - any damage defeats them instantly! They are frail but still dangerous. Elites have higher health totals and require more damage to defeat. Tip: use attack and heroic cards wisely. High damage cards may be wasted on minions.
