Hero

From Die2Nite Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A Hero is the Pay to Play part of Die2nite. Hero mode has a limited lifespan and provides a number of benefits to the player some of which increase over time.

Days

Hero mode has a limited lifespan which is extended by one or more days with every new subscription. Hero days only count down when you are playing the game. They do not count down when you are dead (or on holiday). Skills earned in Hero mode are disabled as soon as your supply of Hero days runs out, however if you buy or gain more Hero days in the future your earned advantages will be restored immediately. Your number of days amassed unlocks new skills.

Gaining more days

There are different ways of becoming a hero, the most common is to buy a subscription. The last player to die in a town that survived at least 5 days will gain hero days. The number depends on how long the town survived past day 5. This is called the R surlst.gifR surlst.gifLast man standing Last Man Standing or LMS. There are also some contests that will award hero days to the winner(s), such as the D2N Captions. A Hero with the R share.gifR share.gifBrothers in Arms Brothers in Arms skill may gift a single hero day to someone (once per town). If someone signed up using your referral link and then purchases hero days you will receive a % of the days they purchased. Also a Small ghoul.gifSmall ghoul.gifGhoul Ghoul gets 1 hero day for each live citizen he ate.

Heroic Actions

A Hero can perform up to 6 Heroic Actions during his life in a town. Each Heroic Action can be performed once only, and a Hero can perform just one Heroic Action per day.

Action Blurb Description
Heroic Return You will immediately be returned to the town if you are less than 11km away! The 11km is the distance that is shown below the in-game map. It can be more than 11 AP from town, if you have not moved in a straight line. Heroic return can be done anywhere on the map 11km from town or closer. The wording is incorrect in the Heroic Actions menu which says less than 11km. At exactly 11km is okay.

You can still return even if the town gate is closed or you get trapped.

Now when used, the message is just the same as those who return normally.

Previously when used, the following message will appear in the gazette (but not in the gates register): Nobody knows how, but the Hero managed to get out of this zone and go back to the town... it's a miracle!

Seeker Miraculously discover a useful object You can choose which item you want to find: Item pile.gifItem pile.gifBattery Battery, Item water.gifItem water.gifWater Ration Water Ration, Item food bag.gifItem food bag.gifDoggy Bag Doggy Bag, Item grenade.gifItem grenade.gifWater Bomb Water Bomb, Item wood2.gifItem wood2.gifTwisted Plank Twisted Plank, Item metal.gifItem metal.gifWrought Iron Wrought Iron, Item rsc pack 2.gifItem rsc pack 2.gifConstruction Kit (2) Construction Kit.

Vicious Uppercut Kill 2 zombies with your bare hands! Kill 2 zombies without weapons.
Rescue Escort another player back to the town (from a maximum of 2 km). Only available when you are in the town yourself. Handy for saving people that are auto-searching nearby and don't come online to get back to town. Note this is max 2 km distance that is shown below the in-game map. It can be more than 2 Small pa.gif distance. Nobody knows how such a miracle is possible, but Hero has returned with Citizen (who was at [?,?]) on their shoulders ! Long live our Heroes !
Second lease of life Restore your APs and recover from exhaustion. Require Small pa.gifSmall pa.gifSecond wind Second wind to unlock it.

Restores your APs to max. (6 or 5-with a wound)

Cheat death As of the next attack, you will no longer be affected by thirst, infection or addiction. Require Small wrestle.gifSmall wrestle.gifCheat death Cheat death to unlock it.

During the attack of the day when this power is activated, you cannot die of infection, thirst or addiction. It does not cure infection, prevent you from getting an infection from a wound, and does not prevent you from dying by walking around in the desert while dehydrated. However, it does prevent the thirst level statuses from degrading at night (i.e. thirsty -> dehydrated).

Jobs

Heroes can choose one of six professions to play as.

Note: Heroes can NOT choose to stay as a resident and save up days. If a hero chooses to be a resident, the following message is given: "When you are a Hero, you cannot be a simple resident! Have some pride!"

Note 2: If you have been a hero once in a town, then stop, and then become a hero again in the same town, you must be the same profession the second time as the first time. Example: You start off a town as a hero and choose scavenger as a profession. On Day 7, you run out of hero time and do not resubscribe. On Day 10, you receive a gifted hero day from another hero using Brothers in Arms (or resubscribe and sign up for more hero time). You will only be able to be a scavenger with the gifted hero day - choosing any other profession will give you an error message.

You have already been a Hero in this incarnation (Item keymol.gifItem keymol.gifTechnician Technician): you must continue where you left off not so very long ago.

Scavenger

South is depleted. North is not depleted. Areas to the west and east have not yet been visited, but it also means those areas are not depleted.

The Scavenger is able to find many more objects when searching in the desert.

The Item pelle.gifItem pelle.gifScavenger Scavenger specializes in finding stuff out in the desert and should spend most of their time outside of town. Their basic equipment is a Item pelle.gifItem pelle.gifSmall Spade Small Spade.


The scavenger abilities are:

  • Autosearching takes 1.5 hours instead of 2 hours, so they can search more in a day.
  • Their chance of finding 'nothing' is greatly reduced.
  • They can see which neighbouring areas are depleted or not.
  • They have 50% more oxygen in explorable ruins.


Scout

There are 1-3 zombies North of town (there is no number if the zone has is empty), 3-7 zombies to the West, 6-10 zombies in the East, and a horde of 13-17 zombies to the South.

The Scout can sneak past groups of zombies undetected, allowing them to explore the farthest reaches of the desert, in almost total safety. Warning : carrying out any actions when hiding causes you to break cover and reveal yourself ! .

The Item vest on.gifItem vest on.gifScout Scout is a master of reconnaissance; his basic equipment is the Item vest on.gifItem vest on.gifCamouflage Vest Camouflage Vest. As such, their scouting abilities can be very valuable during the first days of the town. The scout's detection abilities are less valuable with a Item tagger.gifItem tagger.gifWatchtower Watchtower with upgrades and an Item electro.gifItem electro.gifUpgraded Map Upgraded Map, because the map and zombie count will then be revealed by these constructions. Their ability to join an expedition in progress or deliver items "behind enemy lines" can still save many a life, however.


The scout abilities are:

  • They can estimate the zombie count in neighbouring areas (which will be within 2 of the estimate; more than one Scout can quickly nail down the exact number by comparing their estimates.)
  • They can identify a Buried building whilst in the same zone. (confirm if crows nest reveals unseen buildings or lets scouts identify building type remotely)
  • They can move through uncontrolled areas without getting trapped while wearing their camouflage suit, though there is a chance of being detected

Note: Only visible when playing in Expert Interface.

  • The Scout can only perform some actions (drinking, eating, taking drugs) while remaining undetected by the zombies. These will have a checkmark. Small stealthy.gif, but the scout can not collect items from the ground while undetected.


Guardian

In the World Beyond, the Guardian can keep more zombies at bay than an average citizen. The guardian retains this advantage even when travelling as part of a group !

The Item shield.gifItem shield.gifGuardian Guardian is the tougher version of the regular citizen, equipped with a Item shield.gifItem shield.gifRiot Shield Riot Shield to keep more zombies at bay.


The Item shield.gifItem shield.gifGuardian Guardian abilities are:

  • They have 4 control points instead of 2, allowing them to go safely (alone) into a zone with 4 zombies.
  • They add 5 defence points to the town (when he is in town at the time of the attack).
  • They get one extra defence point for their own home.
  • They have 30 more defence points than the average citizen when they sign up for watchmen and 4% more Safety.


Tamer

The Tamer is able to send some of the contents of their rucksack back to the town from anywhere in the World Beyond.

The Item tamed pet.gifItem tamed pet.gifTamer Tamer is armed with a Item tamed pet.gifItem tamed pet.gif3-legged Labradoodle Three-legged Labradoodle to help with carrying objects.


The Item tamed pet.gifItem tamed pet.gifTamer Tamer abilities are:

  • Once per day they can send the labradoodle to the city to carry objects back to town.
  • They can give the labradoodle Item drug.gifItem drug.gifAnabolic Steroids Anabolic Steroids to carry heavy objects back to town turning the Labradoodle to the Item tamed pet drug.gifItem tamed pet drug.gifDrugged Labradoodle Drugged Labradoodle.
  • The Tamer's faithful labradoodle companion will show their master the way out of the ruins: a blue arrow allows every tamer to never lose their bearings.
  • On watch, their labradoodle gives them an extra 20 defense on watch(no bonus Safety).


Technician

Always ready to get involved with any construction project, the technician, abandoned alone on a desert island with nothing but a toothpick, could construct an enormous entirely autonomous wheel. So just imagine what technical marvels they could construct with a shiny new DIY kit!

The Item keymol.gifItem keymol.gifTechnician Technician is armed with a Item keymol.gifItem keymol.gifHandyman's Toolbelt Handyman's Toolbelt

The Technician has 6 Construction Points (represented as Small pc.gif) that they can use in construction sites and in the workshop.

  • These points are refreshed everyday right after the attack.
  • To use these points the Technician must have at least one Small pa.gif left.


The Technician is also able to take key imprints from locked doors, while exploring abandoned buildings.

Known (Blank) Keys:


Survivalist

A Survivalist will always find something edible (food or water), regardless of where they are in the desert and when they want to find it.


The Item surv book.gifItem surv book.gifSurvivalist Survivalist is armed with a R jermit.gifR jermit.gifSurvival Guide Survival Guide

The Item surv book.gifItem surv book.gifSurvivalist Survivalist abilities are:

  • Once per day able to find one item of food OR water anywhere in the desert. Note that the food or water is eaten or drunk immediately; neither a food ration nor a water ration will appear in your rucksack. Also note that this cannot be used in town, you must be at least 4 km away from the town to use the survivalist's skill. Doing this action will give the Status hasDrunk.gifStatus hasDrunk.gifRefreshed Refreshed or Status hasEaten.gifStatus hasEaten.gifFed Fed status, depending on whether you drank or ate.
    • As of Season 6, the Survival Guide now has a chance of failure, resulting in the book being used up, but providing no food/water Small pa.gif.
  • Can go past the 90% camp cap and have 100% for themselves.


Shaman

Prior to Season 10, the Item shaman.gifItem shaman.gifShaman Shaman used to be a hero class. It was removed in Season 10, but returned in Season 11 - this time the Shaman is not a class, but randomly picked from the citizens, similar to the Catapult Operator. As of Season 12, the Shaman is now elected by the citizens.

Trivia

  • If you use the Mr. Writer skill while the town is dead but you, the following message will display: "You are alone. Nobody is going to answer you, give it up. Anyways, what does it matter ? You are almost certainly going to die tonight..."
