Gameplay Overview:

Battle : PvP Arena

Concept: Fight 1 other player in a timed battle arena. Both players have Energy and Elemental resource meters. Dig up Crystals on the battle field for quicker resources. Build Towers, Minions, or Missiles. Command your Hero or Minions to move or fight or dig.

Player Differences: Enter the Arena with your: chosen Faction, Hero, its 3 equipped Trinkets, and your 3 equipped passive Enhancements. Player's level slightly affects Base HP and Element Levels slightly affect Hero stats.

Winning: First player to complete an objective wins the Battle. Objectives: Either Destroy the other player's Base or Acquire 3 Cores (much like Capture the Flag). Actions during battle impact total loot earned.

The only way players can obtain Heroes or Trinkets is by Crafting them from a Blueprint, which consumes the Blueprint and all required Gold, Parts, and Coins.

Crafted Heroes and Trinkets have randomized Stats, but their Passive abilities are exactly the same every time.

Everything you need for Crafting can be found from winning battles at the Arena.

Optionally: Spend Tokens on a minor loot Chest or a Magical Blueprint. Spend Gold at the Market to get more Coins, Parts, or Blueprints.
