I've been playing this for a few days now, and it's interesting, Not sure about the use of billiard-style mechanics for this, and the game seems a little biased toward the bad guys, but hey it's at least as enjoyable as Angry Birds.

I've got a question about how Powers are supposed to work, though. I get that fusing Powers of the exact same type (say, two Holy Strikes Common+ versus a Holy Strike Common+ and a Holy Strike Common) enhances the power up to five times, but what does that do when fusing them with a Rare power? Should I be fusing and leveling Common Powers to max before fusing them to the Rare? Is there someplace to watch for promo codes? Can I put more than one friend Invite code?

Not happy with the look of the new forums? Check out the Skin Your Forums thread for a solution.

It's exceedingly not clear but here's what I've been able to deduce. 

 

If you fuse any powers together the power increases in level. Increasing the level increases you hp and damage.

This seems to be on a per power basis and not total xp + total xp, so it's better to combine lots of small low level powers with a single higher level power than slowly group powers and combine at the end. 

You can also combine scrolls with powers to level up powers. It's most efficient to use C+ scrolls on C+ powers and the like. Although, really, it's a waste to use C scrolls on C powers (since you're leveling up a power just to lose much of its xp in the fusion process) so I'd just use C scrolls on C+ or R powers. C powers and scrolls are just fodder to level up better powers. 

 

Powers have a maximum level based on their rarity. If you combine like powers the maximum level increases. Once you've done this five times you've hit the level cap and fusing just increases the power's level. 

 

Really you only need a dozen powers and could use extra powers to level up your prefered powers. However, you should try to pick powers of the right power source to your character, as you likely have alts it makes sense to have a few powers to swap in and out, getting all the C+ powers to maximum level.

At least until you get a full set of R or R+ powers. The benefits of a R power far outweighs the bonus you get from having something of the right power source.

Are there any online guides that explain this?
