Combat Overview

To become a powerful hero in V&H you must first equip yourself with quality gear, a variety of boosts and plenty of knowledge. Below are some simple guides to get you started.

Character Sheet

Understanding the character sheet is critical to building up your character. This page contains a vast amount of information you will need in order to properly customize yourself to your liking.

Starting from the top are your Attack and Defense ratings. These are general estimates of your offensive and defensive capabilities at your current level. If you highlight the rings, a tool-tip will appear. Inside the tool-tip is a list of stats that effect the rating. If you're looking to build a defensive character, or offensive character, then pay attention to these stats! They are the ones you'll want to build up the most.

Following that is a list of all your primary stats. These are the same for all classes except for the 2 Mastery's at the top which depend on your class:

Wizard: Fire / Ice Mastery
Warrior: Lightning / Fury Mastry
Priest: Shadow / Holy Mastery
Hunter: Nature / Marksman Mastery

There is a wealth of knowledge stored here, and it is important to learn as much as you can.

Highlight each stat to bring up a tool-tip with information. The tool-tip will describe exactly what the stat does "Increases your Physical Protection", followed by how much of that stat you currently have "+39.2%", followed by a general list of items that can include this stat.

To the right of each stat are 3 arrow indicators that visually portray the amount of that stat you currently have equipped. By highlighting an arrow you can learn more about the stat, such as the maximum cap. Many stats can only go up to a certain limit, so keeping the stat cap in mind is important towards fleshing out your build.

The final column of the primary stats depicts the total boost or reduction for your character. While the first column shows you how much of that stat you've gained, the third column tells you the overall effect for your character.

The next section on the character sheet is the Secondary Stats. These are not directly influenced by combat gear and runes and instead come from a variety of sources and serve broad range of purposes. Once again, highlight each stat in turn to learn more about what it does, and where it came from.

Hovering over the Enchantments in your secondary stats section will bring up a tool-tip of all Enchantments that are currently bound to your character. Enchantments are effects that become bound to ones character permanently. These are usually gained from the item shop or via in-game premium items.

At the bottom of the stats page, are your Epic Stats. These are stats that are gained from Rare or Epic Gear. They add unique passive abilities that bring variety and changes to game-play style. Once again, highlight each stat for a tool-tip containing important information. Unlike your primary stats, Epic Stats won't appear on this page unless you already have the stat equipped. So you will have to go out and discover them all! Or, refer to the complete stats list below.
