Spells and abilities are levelled up by using talent points all gained by fighting in the training arena.
Pick and choose between different weapon arts like a 2 handed sword or sword and shield or two handed magic staff, etc.

EQUIP WITH HELP FROM
If you dislike resource gathering and crafting, we have good news! 9Lives Arena created Ooogies to help you with all the grind work. You can always do resource gathering yourself but why when you've got an Ooogy?
Tell Ooogy what you want him to do and he will happily work for you. Make sure you feed him other wise he won't work. Ooogies love fish stew - go catch some fish to keep him happy.
Your Ooogy works for you while you are online and offline as long as you provide him with enough fish for energy. Think of him as a tamagotchi on steroids that does way more than just poop.
A mobile app to stay in touch with your Ooogy while away from the game is currently under development.
Your Ooogy levels up constantly and will get more effective at resource gathering and crafting.
The Smithy is where you can choose which items you want Ooogy to craft.
IS ALL YOU GET!
Heroes don't lose lives during training and friendly duels. To compete on the leader boards you need to fight in the 9Lives Arena where every victory counts and losing means the loss of a life! When you eventually run out of lives your character dies and turns into a statue that displays all his achievements and can be placed in your training arena.
SPIRIT HUNTERS & IMMORTALS
When one of your characters dies, you are left with a spirit in his slot. This spirit is a spirit hunter and can fight to gain back nine lives. Spirits start with zero lives and if they lose a fight they die permanently. If your spirit manages to gain 9 lives back, they will resurrect, just not into their initial character that died. Your character will become an Immortal. Immortals compete on their own leader board because they are very special. Immortals still lose a life when they lose a fight but they gain a life when they win a fight which makes them very hard to kill! They cap at a maximum of nine lives.
Own your opponents in epic 1v1 fights, climb the leader boards and become a Legend of the Arenas!
