Creation cards are used to assign profession, race and traits to a hero. They are selected during the character creation process and permanently affect your hero
While profession and race cards make the most significant impact, trait cards can have long term impacts depending on the trait picked.
Each profile begins with a deck of creation cards that can be drawn from. This deck can be expanded while adventuring which allows for a wider array of professions, races and traits to choose from when creating new heroes.
Each hero begins with two starting traits, one that originates from their profession and one from their race. While starting traits do not define a hero than can help start them on a desired path. A warrior may take the trait Emperor's Guard to begin them down the path of light.
When first beginning your journey into Arakion the easiest path may be to start with basic stat traits. While these aren't ideal for long term gameplay they are more powerful early on.
Each decision you make can affect how your character develops so be sure to choose your traits wisely.
