Pirate Tales: Battle for Treasure – Heroes, Abilities, and Items

You are the captain of the most reckless crew in the world of the Pirate Tales: Battle for Treasures, and many Heroes will be honored to fight by your side. Each of them has their own strengths and weaknesses, and each boasts a special talent. It’s all up to your strategic thinking and the penchant for adventure to put together the best crew ever, Captain!

How do I get new Heroes?

You can unlock Heroes by collecting enough Hero Cards.

There are a few ways to obtain Hero Cards:

  • From Faction Chests (awarded in Main Encounters, Boss battles and Confrontations);
  • From Chests available from the Shop;
  • As a reward for winning a Tournament.

Unlocking Heroes

Before adding Heroes to your Crew, you will need to unlock them. When you receive the required quantity of Hero Cards (which depends on the Rarity of the Hero in question), you will need to pay up some Silver to unlock them; the actual cost varies with the Heroes’ Rarities, too.

You can unlock a Hero from their Hero Info, as well as via the Collection menu (see the Locked tab?), by tapping on their portrait.

Hero Levels

Each Hero’s parameters depend on that Hero’s level. Also, you can always check the Hero Card count of any Hero.

You can Level Up your Hero whenever you get the required Hero Card count (which depends on the Rarity of the Hero in question); you will also have to spend some Silver on the upgrade. Level-ups boost Hero’s parameters, and the higher the current Hero Level, the more additional Cards and the more Silver you will need to go up yet another level.
