How to Lionin – Pillar – Hardcore+ – Hero’s Hour


Welcome to the second Hardcore+ Hero’s Hour Guide with Pillars Lionin. Lionin’s Talentree looks like we would like to concentrate on getting some Blood Dragons going. So we are getting make use of Union, Legion and Combat to not lose units and use our Experience gain to get some Red Dragons with Dragonking 😉

How to

Gives the hero dragonblood points based on the experience points they gain in battle – more per rank. Once 100 dragonblood points have been collected it is exchanged for a Red Dragon.


What a great talent! Free Red Dragons sounds amazing. So we do want to fight as much as possible. In order to do that we need to conserve troops. If we lose to many, we cannot fight anymore to gain experience points. Lionin starts with the Union talent. The hero will grant part of its life to a unit that is going to die. This will be huge for our dragon plan. So the stronger our hero, the more units we can safe.


Build Order

The Town will always be ordered randomly, so I can only give a general guideline on this.

Highest Priority

  • Tavern -> Recruit 2 Heroes to improve your first army
  • Infirmary -> Get your lost units back to reform them once more
  • Shrine of Beasts -> Good tanky units with Pan Da
  • Hall of Crafts -> Get ranged units
  • Marketplace -> Unlock the third row
  • Pillars of Essence -> Use up all the resources to beef up your army really early
  • Hospital -> If our Dragon dies, we have a chance of reviving them -> Really Important!

Normal Priority

  • Pagoda of Heaven -> If its blocking your path to money or units
  • More Units to open up mines and artifacts
  • More Gold to buy mentioned units and buy units through the diplomacy talent



Talent Tree

Highest Priority

  • Legion 1
  • Combat 1
  • Union 2
  • Dragonking 1 -> Important!
  • Legion 2
  • Union 3
  • Dragonking 2 -> After this you should be about to get your first Red Dragon
  • After this you can freely pick between Midas Touch, Champion and Offense, just make sure to always get more Dragonking asap

After reaching Level 5

  • Oligarchy -> Less units but more powerful Dragons 😉

Hero’s Hour – Game Sheet

Hero’s Hour is an Hommage to Heroes of Might and Magic but as an Auto-Battler 😉 I played HOMM3 for hours with a friend and it was great! So with Hero’s Hour you choose a faction, build up your city, recruit units and go conquer the world with your heroes. Battles will happen automatically. You can still order a bit and cast magic. Just played a small test to check it out, now I already have 3 runs done. It is that good!
