What are the differences to the two modes? If I play offline do I get less features than had I played online? The only feature I can think of that I'll be losing are the Conflux orbs, but are there others?
Since no one's made the attempt to differentiate the two, I decided to try it out for myself.
Features Missing from Offline Mode
- Conflux Orbs
- Dynasty Weapons
- You can still claim them in the Campaign but they're disabled in the inventory screen
- Dynasty Traits
- Option appears at the beginning of the game
- Hero Choices
- When playing skirmish you get a very limited pool for hero choices (1 might hero, 1 magic hero per race)
- Daily/Weekly Autosaves
- It still autosaves on occassion (before a hero fight), but you lose the regular interval autosaves
