Light/Dark Allegiance

From HeRO Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A big part of playing is about becoming a hero and we wanted to emphasize this with our system, which fits perfectly with the server name. Regardless of the side you choose, you can be heroic!

Getting started

First, you should decide on which allegiance you want to join, to register with either side (Light or Dark), talk to the allegiance NPC located in Prontera by the Tool shop.

For those interested to learn more about the story aspect of the Allegiance Systems, or want to know more about the Light Allegiance/Dark Allegiance, refer to the Chronicle of the Heroes- heRO Roleplay.

You earn 5 Allegiance points for joining, what are those points? We'll get to that later. Joining a side allows you to participate in the special Light VS Dark events and quests and eventually earn heroic gears. I'll detail a list of the quests later in this post. As for events, they are held from time to time by the GMs either in-game or in forums.

The Allegiance Points

You get them by participating in events or doing quests. The more points you have the higher hero you are. You'll need those points for various things in game, but you never "spend" them, they just keep getting higher.

Here's a list of what you can currently do with Allegiance Points, more stuff to come.

  • 30 Points : Can wear the clothing palette "Evil Zone" (Dark) or "Sky View" (Light).
  • 40 Points : Can enter the 4th level of Geffen Dungeon.
  • 50 Points : Can participate in the monthly event Trials of Heroes.
  • 75 Points : Can make tames for Heroic Pet (Angeling or Deviling) via the Allegiance Pet Quest.
  • 85 Points : Can start the Tower Hat Quest.
  • 100 Points : Can start the Blessed / Cursed Helm Quest.

What if you earn points of the opposite allegiance? That actually results in loosing points of your own allegiance. For example if you are Dark side and have 15 Dark points, and you earn 5 Light points you'll end up with 10 Dark points. So you cannot try to get both allegiance.

Since most quests can only be done once, you'll want to be careful when doing a quest or choosing which points you want, because once lost, they cannot be retrieved, being a hero is also about making the right decisions.

All your characters on the same account will have the same Allegiance and same amount of Allegiance Points. If you have more than 1 account you can however make them different side.

The Allegiance Quests

When talking to the Allegiance NPC, you'll notice we used 2 very distinctive colors for Light related words (a sorta peach/beige) and Dark related words (dark purple), if you see those colors again you can be sure that the NPC has something to do with the Light VS Dark system.

The Allegiance Quests are a collection of quests that can help you earn Light and Dark points and gears for the Allegiance System in heRO. Their starting location and difficulty rating are all different. See that link for more details about the Light/Dark Allegiances, related customs and the heRO roleplay.

There are other seasonal quests, such as one only available during the Christmas holiday and another around Halloween. Multiple one-time events throughout heRO server may give you allegiance points as well! Be sure to be online to play often, and you will surely meet up with them!

The Light and Dark events

Some special events are another way to earn Allegiance Points. To know more about the previous events you can check the various chapters of the hero story. GMs will try to advertise Light VS Dark event in advance but they could also make some spontaneous events.

One regular heroic event is called the "Trials of Heroes" it is held once a month and is the only way to earn some special allegiance gears.

Sometimes events are also held while following the roleplay aspect of the two different allegiances. While they may not always reward Allegiance Points, they formulate an important part of heRO's Allegiance system. Check the Chronicle of the Heroes- heRO Roleplay for more details.

The Hero Gears

The Wings from Trials of Heroes can "evolve" as you participate and succeed in Trials of Heroes, meaning your wings will grow in strength as you become a stronger hero in the trials. All ToH Wings are obtainable in the Trials of Heroes event. To gain a higher evolution wing you trade your previous one.

See the details on the Trials of Heroes gears for the Light side and Dark side.

No players may ever have heRO gears from both Light and Dark Allegiance at any point in time.
