It also includes "traits" which are similar to the starting bonuses from previous heroes games. Towards the end of the single player campaigns you end up unlocking 5 of these passive bonuses - which can basically make the difference between some of the more challenging maps being beatable and fun vs. impossible with the highest difficulty selected.

The free items mentioned are levellable artifacts - many of them are given to you in cutscenes in the campaigns. You just don't actually get them unless you play entirely online and logged in - even in single player. This means if you don't play always on then you're being denied plot based rewards and the game sort of rubs it in your face by showing you the items you WOULD have gotten and then saying "but you didn't since you're not using Conflux."

Also be aware that campaigns and saved games you started while logged in are entirely and wholly unusable if you can not log in for some reason. Those games can only be continued/loaded if you are logged on.
