My hero was sacrificed, there is no noticeable lost in experience points for my hero or power in my city. I see a timer countdown of 7 days and the help button says:
You have 7 days to resurrect your Hero with no loss of experience. Although, if your hero does pass on, a descendent of your Hero will emerge to lead your city! You may also hire a new Hero. The descendent/hired Hero will maintain an amount of the fallen Hero's XP, the amount of XP maintained is dependent on the level of your Gymnos.
So, what would happen to my hero's XP points and my city's power points if I resurrect my hero before the 7 days timer expires? and what would happen if I resurrect him after the timer has expired?
As a side note, I would like to stop babysitting my account for a while, so I'd prefer not to resurrect my hero, but it's not clear to me what is the penalty imposed by the game for a bit of leisure time :)
