Clarifications:[edit | edit source]

Addon is used when playing additional copies of a card does not do the same thing as the first copy of the card. Any card with a non-stackable primary effect (e.g. "your attacks pierce" has an addon effect that can still be stacked repeatedly (e.g. your attacks gain +1 range)

Replenish typically restores used charges at the end of an arena.

Recover restores the charge by meeting the goal. Each charge used can only recover one charge.

Tips[edit | edit source]

You can gain new charges by comboing Replenish or Recover with a Rationing effect. Developers have stated that this is intended behavior.
