How to get hero tokens

Hero tokens can be collected when you interact with the remains of fallen dwarves. These are usually indicated by small piles of axes, helmets, and bones left behind by fallen dwarves. Walk up to one such pile and interact with it by pressing 'E' to pay respects. You'll get a hero token once you perform this action.

Since Return to Moria uses procedural generation, the location of these remains can be random and haphazard. However, you'll have luck finding these around large orc encampments and prison areas in the Mines of Moria. We managed to find around six of them lying around in Orctown.

How to use hero tokens

You can use the Hero Tokens to create the Memorial Flame at your base. This doesn't unlock immediately, and you need five Hero Tokens to build a single Memorial Flame. Once you have five Hero Tokens, go to your base and open the build menu. You'll see the option to place down a Memorial Flame within your base.

The Memorial Flame is a base structure that you can interact with by pressing 'E' to pay your respects. When you perform this action, you gain a temporary buff called The Hero Spirit, which boosts your energy. This allows you to perform energy-consuming actions such as mining, sprinting, and fighting for longer periods and is especially useful for longer dives into the depths.

We suggest making a habit out of paying respect to the Memorial Flame before heading out on expeditions to get the most value out of it.
