Map description
Hello guys!) "Mysterious Trials" is a PvE map with eight different arenas. Each arena has unique types of enemies and modifiers (they are random, so each new game will be different). You have 24 heroes to choose, each one with unique abilities and stats (there are 6 new attributes available). Check the tabs for more information. You can play solo or with your friends (up to 4, enemies become more dangerous). I'm planning to improve the map in the future (this is the first version). If you have any ideas for this map or found some bugs or grammatical errors (translation is always the most difficult part for me...) feel free to comment or write to my email.

Important! This map was made for Reforged version, so if you play with classic graphics some textures or landscapes can seems strange (because the import path in Reforged is different). I'm planning to do a classical version soon.


  • The heroes have new 6 stats in addition to strength, agility and intelligence:

    Power: increases damage from abilities by 1% for each point.
    Critical Chance: gives to the hero critical strike chance (75% max).
    Critical Damage: shows how effective critical strikes will be.
    Resistance: decreases incoming magic damage by 1% for each point (80% max).
    Evasion: gives a chance to evade normal attacks (75% max).
    Concentration: reduces cooldawn of abilities by 1% for each point (50% max).

    Important! Agility no more gives armor bonus, it increases critical chance and evasion instead (+0.5% for each point). Intelligence now also increases power (+1 for each point) and strength also increases resistance (+1% for 3 points).

    There are about 100 different items available to buy or craft. Those items increase main or additional attributes or give unique passive or active abilities (similar to any MOBA games). Items split up to 4 categories:

    Normal: gives a small bonus to one attribute (can be bought without recipes).
    Advanced: gives a medium bonus to one or two attributes (requires Normal items for crafting).
    Artifacts: increases several attributes and gives unique passive or active ability (requires Advanced and Normal items for crafting).
    Relics: the most powerful and expensive items in the game (requires Artifacts for crafting).

    You can also increase your attributes with magic runes (randomly drop from enemies) or in the special rooms in Pyramid of the Sun (Arena 4).
  • You have to choose the hero and fight in 7 different arenas. Follow the instruction (press f12 if you forgot the current task) to complete each level. Every arena will always have two random modifiers unique for each type (for example, deadly fog in Graveyard, pirate's chests in Treasure Island, growing pumpkins in the Forest, cave collapses in the Mine e.t.c.) Some modifiers also can improve the stats of enemies or give them additional abilities. After the end of each level you have to defeat the boss (bosses also picked randomly).

    There is also a special secret switch on each arena (7 total). If you find all, you will get access to a secret level 8 (which is very difficult).

    Also, you can't lose in this game (I wanted to make gameplay more relaxing). After every death, your hero will be respawned on your base without any limits or penalties. But you can try to complete the whole map without deaths if you want a real challenge (its possible but not easy)

    I also made a custom soundtrack for this map (at the moment only for a few arenas).

    Hey are you sure it's open source? You've put that map tag on but I can't see it being written about in the description.

    Hello! Its not protected, so anyone can see how abilities or arenas were made (I think it could be useful for someone). Or maybe I dont understand the opensource tag, what exactly does it mean?

    Well, I think it more likely refers to you giving access and permission to people to edit the map and possibly upload it.

    I understand now, thanks. I think if someone wants to add his own abilities or heroes, they can do it, but upload the same map with only a few changes not a really good idea.

    We're not accepting mere edits anyway. We just have to know if you are OK with various versions appearing from other people while you are still working on yours.
