There are three colored dots on each hero card. Two of one basic mana color and one of another.

What do they stand for?

Do you gain the appropriate crystals at the beginning of the game?

Couldn't find anytging about them in the rules.

Bye
Thanee

They are used if that card is used as the "dummy player" in solo games.
Rules are on the bottom of page 12 of the english rulebook. Not the walkthrough book.

"Take a look at his hero card. At the bottom, there are three colored dots (for example Goldyx has green, green, and blue.) Give three crystals of these colors(one for each dot) to the Dummy player's Inventory. Note: this applies to the Dummy player only. Other characters start with no crystals."

They are for the solitaire game, and are discussed in the rules pertaining to solitaire play. They are used to control the solitaire turn length.

That could very well be.

I did look through the forum and check that commonly missed rules thread, as well as the FAQ thread, but couldn't see anything about those.

About time I added it then. I thought it was already there, but I must have kept forgetting to add it.

They are also required for co-operative play.

Some of the characters have black dots, what's the point of having black crystals for the dummy player?

Please wash your cards. They are dirty


edit: and seriously there should be no black dots on the cards.
Where do you have them?!?

You probably have the same printing as I have.
(1st)
They have used too much dark paint.
Every card is too dark.
I am worried with the expansion I will notice new cards

I think mine is the 2nd printing, the rulebook doesn't come with the errata section.

ok, confirmed. This WAS in the FAQ, but since this is the 6th new thread asking the same question, I have now moved it to the very top of the FAQ.
