Capacities can be though of as a unit's skills; they provide a wide range of effects, and while most of them are passive, a number have more active uses. Every unit in the game has at least one capacity inherent to it, but more can be added to a unit by equipping it with different weapons, accessories, and some unique pieces of armor. While weapons tend to focus strictly on in-combat effects, the capacities available from accessories and armor have more varied effects, and can sometimes copy another unit's inherent abilities.

Heroes also come with their own additional capacities. On top of having one of the four levels of the Spying capacity - which is what enables heroes to infiltrate cities - they also have access to capacities that can be considered General or Governor capacities, which help the hero in either of those roles. While many of the General capacities can be replicated with insignia accessories, the Governor capacities are completely unique to the hero that has them, and should be taken into consideration when selecting a hero to assign as Governor to a city.

Capacities are different from the skills of the heroes, which they get through the Skill Tree.

Capacities from Accessories[]

Standard Accessories[]

These are the capacities granted by the general-purpose accessories that can be acquired by any faction over the course of the game, either by progressing through the technological eras, or researching the appropriate technology. While Insignias can only be equipped on heroes, the other types of accessories can be equipped by any unit.

Hero Capacities[]

On top of the standard unit capacities that most heroes have, every hero has a number of skills that are exclusive to heroes. All heroes have the Last Stand capacity and a level of the Spying capacity, but they also typically have two capacities that can be considered either General or Governor capacities. General capacities usually provide attribute bonuses to an army that hero is leading, while Governor capacities increase the FIDSI FidsSmall output of the cities they are in charge of.
