Our Dota Auto Chess Races and Unit Bonuses guide contains a list of all the races and their unit bonuses in Auto Chess and will be updated as the game evolves.
Every hero - or chess piece - in Dota Auto Chess belongs to a certain race faction. Some of these factions also come with special bonus attributes that come into play when you have a specific number of units from that race out in play.
It's just one of the many fiddly aspects of learning Auto Chess, and so we wanted to put together a quick guide that explains which races provide bonuses, and what those bonuses actually entail.
This should help you out when it comes to building your evolving army, and give you a snapshot of the bonuses you're working towards.
We'll keep expanding on this guide over time, but let us know in the comments if you're having any problems with this area of the game, and we'll do our best to answer your questions!
UPDATE: The latest patch added two new units, Zeus and Mars. They both happen to be Gods, so there's now a "God" trait bonus in town. We've added this to the table below and we'll continue to tinker with this page as more content is released.
