This article is about the recipes used to combine upgrade items in-game. For recipes used in crafting cosmetic items, see Crafting.

A recipe is an item that does nothing on its own, but when combined with the right ingredients allows heroes to create more powerful items.

Additional Information[]

Item hierarchy example

Perseverance's item hierarchy: Its components are Ring of Health and Void Stone, and it is used to build Refresher Orb, Linken's Sphere, Lotus Orb and Battle Fury.

Recipes cannot be directly found in the shop, but can be purchased by selecting certain items that require that specific recipe to complete. By viewing a specific item in the shop, its hierarchy is displayed, both above and below it. Below the item is the ingredient hierarchy required to assemble it, while above it is the ingredient hierarchy that shows what it can be used to assemble.

Recipes are always purchasable, though they are just harmless and pointless pieces of paper occupying inventory slots. Generally it is better to first purchase items that have some properties.

There are auto combine items which do not require a recipe scroll as the items combine automatically to create it. Examples of these items are Perseverance icon Perseverance, Butterfly icon Butterfly, and Oblivion Staff icon Oblivion Staff.

Some items have multiple recipes. For example, Dagon icon Dagon level 1 costs 2850 Gold and its recipe costs 1150 Gold. Purchasing another recipe upgrades this item to level 2, purchasing another one upgrades it to level 3 and so on, for a maximum of 5 levels. The recipe costs 1150 Gold for each level.

Trivia[]

Upgrader icon

Upgrader

  • The symbol in the middle of the default recipe icon is that of the Combine, the antagonists from the Half-Life series. Given that the purpose of the recipe items is to "combine" others into a new item, it seems quite appropriate that this symbol be used.
  • Prior to version 5.65, upgradable items did not use any recipe scrolls. Instead, smaller upgradable items were combined by basic item components, while some medium and most bigger upgradable items used an item called Upgrader. The Upgrader (1500 Gold) itself had absolutely no effect at all and acted as a common "recipe scroll" for many items.
