Key Features


Battlepaths offers a sophisticated drop system that generates countless different items along with more than 50 unique items. The character customization allows you to create a unique hero with its own strengths and weaknesses. You can build a heavy, damage dealing tank, a deadly ninja that utilizes high speed and agility to attack his victims from out of nowhere, a true master of mind who crushes his foes with powerful combinations of special abilities, or something in between.


You can choose to play in different realms that each have their own landscape and their own set of creatures. The many superior items you will find can be exchanged between different characters, one of which will eventually become the first powerful enough to face the Chaos Overlord.



Is Battlepaths real-time or turn-based?

It seems that some people initially think that Battlepaths runs in real-time, because the character moves smoothly from tile to tile. But Battlepaths is turn-based. The higher a characters Speed, the more turns he will get. To be precise, there is a counter counting time units in the background. The timepoint when a creature gets its next turn depends on its Movement Cost (MC), which in turn depends on Speed. A creature with 30 MC, e.g., will be on turn every 30 time units.
The special “Haste” is a good way to decrease the movement cost, as well as items having a chance to cast “Haste” when striking. You can actually get up to 8 times faster than a character with minimal Speed when you concentrate on Speed and learn “Haste”.
Another thing important to know is that when rising Speed for the first few times, you won’t notice a big difference. The higher your Speed goes, the higher the gain in additional rounds will get. Once you’ve played a character with 20+ Speed, you’ll definitely get to appreciate this attribute.

Also, be sure to not run in circles if you want enemies to approach you and instead SKIP you turn by pressing Space (or whatever you bound the "Skip Turn" action to).


How can I skip my turn?

Press SPACE !! Or any other key you have bound to skipping turn.


What’s the level cap?

In version 1.4 the level cap has been increased to 32, in version 1.5 the level cap has been increased to 34, and in 1.8 it's 35!


How many specials can I learn?

Each character can learn 4 specials. Some specials can only be learned when you’ve already learned a specific special.
“Warcry” needs you to have learned “Power Strike”, for “Flash” you’ll need “Haste”, and “Health Boost” requires “Regeneration”.


Do monsters respawn?

Monsters don’t respawn during a game. However, if you quit your current game and re-enter a realm, everything is reset, as if you’ve never been there. Of course, your quest progress is saved, and you can use the village teleporters you’ve activated so far. Replaying certain maps is highly recommended when you feel you are not strong enough. You will gain additional experience and it helps you find better equipment.
