About John Bedford

John is Metabomb's Editor in Chief, and is responsible for all of the Hearthstone news, features and guides content on the site.

On this page you'll find every Realm Royale ability with maximum upgrade details for ability cooldowns, damage and healing values.

Regardless of the class you choose to play in Realm Royale, it's vital that you waste no time in unlocking and then upgrading your chosen abilities. The more advanced each one becomes, the better your chances of surviving in the late-game where things get a lot tougher all-round.

The exact nature of the upgrades was a little bit of a mystery until Hi Rez confirmed the upgrade options over the weekend. In this article we've gathered together all of the ability upgrade paths in one place, so you can work out which ones are likely to have the biggest impact on your personal playstyle.

We expect a lot of the numbers in this article to change over time, as the game is currently in Alpha and Hi-Rez is no doubt busy pouring over data to find overpowered and underpowered anomalies. As the figures are updated, we'll tweak this article to reflect those changes.

We're also in the process of producing in-depth guides to playing all five classes in Realm Royale, and you'll find links to those articles in the relevant sections below. We think each one will give you the perfect grounding in how to play each character!

Assassin Maximum Ability Upgrades

The Assassin is Realm Royale's sneakiest character. Here are all of the upgrades that are potentially available for this class if you're lucky enough to track them down. If you need help actually playing this class, don't miss our Realm Royale Assassin guide.
