Planet of Heroes’ progression is split up into both Account and Hero levels.
Account Level Edit
Your Account level is an overall indicator of how much you’ve played Planet of Heroes and can determine what type of content is available to you. For example, at first you will find yourself only able to play with bots, then co-op play, and onto 3-on-3 PvP matches. However those additional modes can be unlocked in a relatively short amount of time, but the requirements exist to ensure you’re familiar with the game and how to play it before diving into the deep end!
Experience to increase this level is obtained by playing through a core gameplay session, completing quests, and unlocking achievements.
Along with unlocking additional content to participate in when leveling up, you will also receive a one-time reward to give you a bonus for your efforts. Additionally, your Account level actively determines the maximum level of your Heroes.
Hero Level Edit
The Hero Level is an indicator of an individual Hero’s progress. Simply put, if you play a Hero you’ll gain experience for them and they will level up. This means that each Hero levels up on their own, as you play them, each one getting more powerful.
Your Hero Level also determines what level of Equipment can be used and which level of Runes can be activated.
