Hypogean Faction Investment Guide

This is the ultimate guide for the Hypogean faction.

Last update: Patch v1.133 (January 2024)

Which Hypogean hero should you ascend first?

Lavatune is the highest Hypogean priority to ascend first. Lucilla is also very important and she can work pretty well even at Mythic ascension.

Zolrath and mortas Mortas can be ascended via Challenger Store, but Mortas work great even at Elite ascension. You can also get Zolrath copies on Stargazing if you want to.

Canisa & Ruke is a very flexible tank. After ascending him, you may want to focus on ascending Olgath or khazard Khazard. But Khazard only needs Mythic ascension. Mehira is another hero that work great at lower ascensions (Mythic and Elite).

Lucretia Lucretia and Ezizh have been falling off, but they’re still good heroes. Framton Framton is situational, so most F2P players will not need him.

Awakened-Ezizh Awakened Ezizh does his job pretty well at Legendary ascension. You don’t need to worry about getting more than one copy of him.

Mezoth Mezoth, Vyloris Vyloris, Zikis Zikis, and Leofric Leofric are not worth it.

PS: To see the full priority list for Stargazing, check our Stargazing Room guide.

Do not invest on Mezoth Mezoth, Vyloris Vyloris, Zikis Zikis, and Leofric Leofric. The maximum investment you should put into these heroes is signature level 10 or 20, in case you have a lot of emblems left in your bag.
