What Are Hero Emblems for in "Order and Chaos"
Using Hero Emblems
In OAC (Order and Chaos Online) a hero emblem is a type of currency that can be used for many useful things in game. There are lots of ways to get free hero emblems. You want as many of these as possible because they are used for many different parts of the game.
When they first came out, they had a limited number of uses, but as the game is developed they are used for more and more things. It's probably best to spend them on bag and bank upgrades before you begin using them in other ways.
Hero Emblems can be used in the following ways:
- On the Black Market
- To open bag and bank space (after maxed with gold)
- Donated to your guild to help level the guild up
- To resurrect without using runes
- For transforming the appearance of gear into vanity
- To buy mats
There are so many ways to use them, it can be difficult to choose what to use them for. I am seeing a lot of players using them for resurrecting, without realizing that they have other, more important purposes.
I know Order and Chaos has a bazillion types of currency, but as you get used to them they all make perfect sense. Hero emblems are confusing at first. When you click on one it will vanish from your bag. Some players think they may have wasted, or lost them. After you click on them, and they vanish from your bag, they will be added under the hero emblem currency.

Where Do You Get Hero Emblems?
There are lots of ways to get hero emblems, even so I do not recommend someone use them for coming back to life, unless it is to get a piece of gear or a good drop from a boss. AGL is one of the most popular places to farm hero emblems, but it must be done on legendary and takes exhaustion.
Farming hero emblems takes time initially, but once all of your bag space is open, you will find you have more to play with. You can res in the dungeons, or play with vanity at that point. If you choose to spend them on the Black Market, be ready to save up a number in the thousands.
Unlike souls, there is no fast way to farm them without using exhaustion. Remember, in PCN you can farm souls with no exhaustion, however outside of RTN, there is no way to do that with hero emblems.
You can get hero emblems in the following ways:
- Hourly chest
- From the lottery
- AGL, MZL and other higher dungeon bosses
- PvP chest (you get when you cap)
- Event rewards
- League rewards
- Guild weekly tournament chest
- From the Nick Shop
- As rewards for the Royal level quest
- From 3 daily quests in Flare Island
- As daily login rewards
How To Use Hero Emblems
When you first get hero emblems a hero emblem will be placed in your bag. Honestly, I like to just leave them in my bag so I don't accidentally use them to res in a dungeon.
Your currency totals are in your character's attributes statistics page. Hero emblems will not appear in your total until you open your bag and click on the hero emblem. It will disappear from your bag and be added to your total. At this point you can use them as needed.
It is embarrassing to tell you how many times I have accidentally resurrected and wasted my hero emblems. That is why I just leave them in my bag until I need them. Once they are listed in your attributes they will be subtracted from the total when you use them.
Hero Emblems come in the following forms:
- single = 1 hero emblem
- bags = 3 hero emblems
- small chest = 10 hero emblems
When you get single hero emblems, I suggest you use them as often as possible to convert them to currency. If you wait until you have 50 or 99 or more, then when you need them you will have to press them once for every one you have, and that might take you awhile when your in a hurry to get something done.
Best Way To Use Hero Emblems
The best way to use hero emblems depends how you play the game. The great thing about Order and Chaos Online is that there are many ways to build your character. I opened all my storage spaces up, and now I love to use them for vanity gear.
A lot of people say the best way to use hero emblems are on the Black Market. I took a poll which showed that 50% of players thought they were best spend on the Black Market. I do not disagree with this train of thought. However, I do have a little bit of a different opinion.
The first way I always use hero emblems on a new character is to open my bag and bank all the way. I love this game, but I am always wanting more bag space.
My second favorite way to use hero emblems is to use them to transform my gear. Yes, I know, it is purely vanity, but there's something to be said about taking care about how you look. There is nothing more fun than to transform your PvP gear in to low level gear, or in to something silly.
Sometimes, other players think they are about to get an automatic win and relax. Since they don't expect much a fight, you can smack em around a bit before they realize what happened.
I also do not like the way some of the PvE gear looks. I mean, how dare I be seen in public in the EXACT same outfit as everyone else! The look of gear is one part of the game that players hope to see improved.
There is just something cool about looking unique. Of course, if you want to be stronger, and don't care how you look, you probably want to save them for the Black Market. On the other hand, if you are a dedicated guild member, then plan to set a few aside each day to donate back to the guild.
