Angry Birds Epic Guide | Understanding the Bird Classes (headgear)

In this guide we explore all the various classes of birds in Angry Birds Epic. Understanding these classes — and the different battle abilities associated with each — is integral to your success in Epic. Bottom line, there are levels that simply aren’t passable without a specific class of bird being part of the line up.

With that said, before we jump into the various classes, you may be asking yourself, “how do I change a bird’s class?” Classes are associated with the bird’s headgear, which can be changed by tapping a bird in the main menu. Once you do this all the classes you’ve unlocked will appear. From time to time throughout your journey in Epic you will unlock “Trainer” stations where you can purchase different headgear (either with Snoutlings or Lucky Coins). Down the road these classes can also be upgraded at the Mighty Eagle’s Dojo, but we’ll cover that in a later guide.

Blue attack values are based on an attack power of 100. Adjust proportionally based on your bird’s attack power!
Green healing values are based on a health rating of 100. Adjust proportionally based on your bird’s health!

If you haye the latest update:
Go to Shop
Go to classes

You can see the damage,effects etc.

By decitronal

I am unsure if this is old, but the classes don’t deal the same damage. Damage is determined by weapon damage then divided or multiplied
