What are Hero’s Tokens in Return to Moria?

Hero’s Tokens are collectibles granted after honoring a fallen ally. There are multiple in each area, and collecting them will enable you to build a Memorial Flame which provides a temporary buff to your energy when honored.

After collecting five Hero’s Tokens, you’ll get a recipe which shows how to craft a memorial statue. The memorial flame on the statue will grant you a buff to your energy for a limited amount of time, meaning you can sprint, fight, and mine to your heart’s content.

Hero’s Tokens are worth collecting for this powerful status effect, but this isn’t explained in the early game, and only becomes obvious much later on. Therefore, if you see the remains of fallen dwarves, you should always opt to honor them and collect the Hero’s Token.
