Domains can be done solo or co-op. Play with other players by merging both of your worlds in co-op mode. If a domain is quite difficult to complete, this can be your other option. Do note, not every domain allows co-op mode.

As mentioned earlier, Domains will require resin for you to claim various rewards. There are a total of 160 resin for you to use daily. Once the day resets, any used resin will be replenished. So make every resin count and visit domains to obtain better items to make your heroes stronger.

To check your daily available resin, just press M to open the map and check the top right of the screen.
