With the 2.0 Update for the game, we have also updated how Consume works!
Please note: that our Support team does not have the ability to undo a Consume action, and compensation cannot be given for errors. Please make sure you are certain before confirming a hero Consume.
Consume and Combine have been merged into the new Consume function. Consuming heroes to add Consume XP to a hero will now add or increase your heroes' X2 Damage chance, hero level, number of Fortification Slots, and Tier.
The other big difference is that you can now increase the Tier of a hero by Consuming enough heroes of ANY type. Consuming identical heroes will guarantee you a Tier increase, as it always has, but it's no longer the only way to increase the Tier.
Finally, we've listened to your feedback, and with the new Consume XP progression, you can Consume a Tier2 hero with another Tier2 hero and you will end up with a Tier4 hero!
When you tap on the Consume button, you'll be taken to the Consume screen where you start by dragging the target hero first to the pedestal and then dragging over the heroes that you want to Consume:
When you tap the Consume button, you will get a new display that shows you what abilities are being added or increased and how much Consume XP it took. You can also see how much Consume XP is needed for additional features.
Consuming identical heroes or heroes of the same faction will provide you with additional bonus Consume XP.
Good hunting, everyone!
