Villagers and Heroes 4.0



Villagers and Heroes has been updated with its biggest expansion ever, taking the game to the next level.

More action. More Loot. More Fun.
An entirely new loot system that drives action and fun. An completely overhauled talent system that lets players unlock rule-shattering ultimates. New and improved user interface, snappier more interesting combat, new content, and more.

Removal of many F2P Mechanics
With new mechanic changes, the game has never been more accessible to play. Mounts are now available to all players for FREE. The paid fast travel system has been removed. No more penalties after death. Experience to level has been vastly reduced. Gathering grind has been reduced by 75%. And the list goes on! It has never been a better time to play!

But don’t take our word for it...
“I looooooove the new gear system (as a fan of arpg's like Diablo where loot is always random); it's an actual hunt for perfect gear…” -Rin Mitsuri

“Our characters are SO much more customizable now. Crafting has gotten really fun, and killing things gives you more cash and interesting, unique gear… So fun. So many new possibilities!!!!” -Scraggle18

Reviews

“There are 10 different gathering professions: mining, fishing, bug lore, plant lore, smithing, cooking, tailoring, woodcrafting, gardening and ranching. The coolest part is that one character can become an expert at all of them. So Villagers and Heroes is a class-based, sandbox-crafter's paradise with nicely interactive housing.”

About This Game

Step into a magical land unlike any other!

Villagers and Heroes is a free-to-play MMO game in which players experience the thrill of battling unique monsters, the satisfaction of crafting powerful weapons and gear, and the pleasure of building lasting friendships in a friendly community.

Gnomish Augmentation = Sandbox Gameplay.

This unique feature is at the heart of the deep yet elegantly simple player choice system in Villagers & Heroes. The weapons and armor that a player equips not only grant a versatile assortment of heroic feats and spells, but also a large array of proficiencies and augmented abilities. The process of Gnogmenting gives the players the ability to mix, match, swap, replace, customize and design gear exactly how they want! Combine ancient elder gear with remarkable weaponry dropped from the monsters of the world. Or craft your own gear using any or all of the 10 gathering and crafting skills available. Gnogmenting is a completely free-form, sandbox system that is unmatched by any other game in its depth, and lets players test every tactic and indulge every creative whim.

Bounty Runs!

Bounties are powerful adversaries and monsters that roam every corner of the world. When a player defeats a bounty monster, they earn a large reward, regardless of the size of their party! Solo the beasties by yourself, or rampage across the countryside with a group of friends. Bounty rewards are instantaneous and do not require activation. This feature encourages teamwork and strategy.

Live in a Real Home in a Real Village.

You are the architect, the farmer, and the rancher. With a wide range of building styles to choose from, players can design and decorate their own houses, as well as choose which crops to plant in their garden, or select the type of animals they'd most like to raise. But players needn't go at it alone! Help your village grow from a tiny hamlet to a thriving metropolis by aiding your neighbors with community projects which will ultimately benefit every member of the village.
