Complete The Trials of Hercules[ | ]

King Hercules has summoned you to cleanse the lands of evil! Join forces with two of your fellow Gods and journey to the town of Hercopolis for an RPG-style dungeon crawl. Complete quests, defeat bosses, and gain power to defeat the ultimate foe: The Hydra.

Welcome to Hercopolis![ | ]

Dungeon TownLayout

Even the greatest heroes need help. Visit the four boroughs of Hercopolis to earn favor from the townsfolk... and their assistance in your future battles. Complete all the quests in each part of town to progress and unlock rewards like Chest Rolls! You can unlock even greater rewards, more assistance from the townsfolk, and up to 100 Gems with your Dungeon Adventure Bundle!

Game Rules[ | ]

The Trials of King Hercules is a Dungeon instance for 3 players. Obtain quests from the Town Hall screen and journey into the trial to face monsters and gain loot!

  • 3 Players
  • Start the game at level 20
  • Your armory of items will initially be empty

Gods[ | ]

Pick from 70+ Gods as you take on the Trials of King Hercules. Don't worry if you don't like your first choice; your progress will be saved, and any items you unlock will be available for you to equip on any God you choose.

Armory[ | ]

When you first enter the Dungeon you will not have any items in your Armory. As you play through and break open chests guarded by monsters and Bosses, you will obtain new loot.

  • Break open Chests and kill bosses to obtain new loot
  • Your loot will stay with you through each Dungeon run!
  • You can equip any item you want but are still restricted to 6 items in total!

Gameplay[ | ]

There are two game modes: Normal and Hard. You can only unlock and play Hard once you have completed all quests for the Church Sector.

  • Reach graveyard checkpoints for teammates to respawn at.
  • Be careful of dying! The more you die in one run, the harder the dungeon will be.
  • Teammates will respawn after finishing combat
  • If all members of a party are down at the same time it's Game Over!
  • Defeat all the bosses and Victory is yours, and all the shiny loot too!
