    I fixed your post. There is a big difference between need and want. Books were not available years ago and yet heroes were still upgradable so they are not needed but wanted.

    I came into the thread expecting the same. Surely that's the more important change.

    No, it would need to be called Book of Heroes OR Pets” Otherwise people will say it should do both.

    Is there only a single Hero in the game or are there 4 of them? 4 right? Then that makes it plural, so 'Book of Heroes'.

    Sigh.

    Do people no longer actually read books, are they mere relics of the past, completely replaced by internet blurbs? We are talking books. As I noted in another thread ...

It is the reader whom then utilizes that knowledge to perform an action. So a Love Potion will instill feelings of love when used on a person, yet a Book of Love will not instill love if thrown at the person (more likely will make them angry that you hit them with a book). Rather it contains knowledge so that you, not the book, can instill love.

    So the books contain knowledge telling the Builder how to complete actions instantaneously, but like any book, it does not do the work itself. So books are often titled with the information within. So a Book of Building contains how to finish a structure, a Book of Fighting how to complete a troop upgrade, and a Book of Spells to complete a spell. Now take a master volume, that contains the works of all the other volumes. The book then contains all knowledge, or Everything!

    This comes up often, and I accept that I am in the minority. To me, they named it correctly. It is a book, not a potion. A cookbook does not cook the food for you, it merely tells the reader how to do it.



    So a Builder wants to complete the Army Camp upgrade immediately, so goes to the Town Hall for the Book of Building, but finds it is gone. So he grabs the Book of Everything knowing he only has to read one third of it, and can ignore the rest. Just like the cookbook shown above, I can use it to cook one and only one recipe, and ignore the other 1,999 recipes.
    So a Book of Heroes contains all knowledge required about each and every hero (hence plural, or "heroes"), including all that is within their domain, such as their pets.

    Actually, a book title can be absolutely anything the author and publisher want. It could be titled the "Book of Blazzogagabangablob"! As the saying goes "Can't judge a book by it's cover", and a book's tile is part of that very cover!

    That's true, but should it not now be known as "Book of heroes and their pets"?

    No because its an encyclopedia called "book of heroes." After the discovery of pets, they issued new volumes and didn't want to start volumes from scratch so they kept the old title. After good advertising the clash world knows they can find information about pets in the "book of heroes" encyclopedia series
