Sins of a Dark Age Wiki

Version 37336/37365 Release Notes for Sins of a Dark Age - June 2 2014

Item Guides

  • By default, every Hero now has an Item Guide divided into three sections: Starting Items, Essential Items and Final Build. The intent is for new players to buy the items in each section from left to right and then move onto the next section.
  • Advanced users can create their own Item Guides. They can rename each section, select different items and modify the item ordering. Each Hero Kit Slot can support one Item Guide. The intent here is to help with experimentation and the creation of strategies in advance. It is also useful for synchronizing Hero Gear with Items. We expect that most advanced players will adapt their builds during play but it can be helpful to have one or more reference points available during a match.
