We’ve already shared some tips and tricks for Legendary: Game of Heroes, a new mobile title that slots into a fast-growing category of games that mixes the best of casual gaming with the best of hardcore gaming – it’s a Match 3/RPG hybrid. And while it shouldn’t be much of a problem for you to make those matches of three pieces or more, there’s far more you’ll have to do here, as there are hundreds of characters to collect, skills corresponding to each of these characters, and other RPG-centric features such as joining a guild, competing against real-life people in PvP battles, and packs which you can open to win rare, super rare, and legendary heroes.
As you can see from that last feature, this game also comes with its fair share of TCG elements – that’s trading card game, for those unfamiliar with gaming jargon. So how can you get more hero cards, regardless of rarity but preferably those that are rare or better? Read on, as we’ve got that as our focus in this new Legendary: Game of Heroes strategy guide. You’ve learned the general tips, now here’s how you can add to your card collection.
1. What’s The Benefit Of Joining A Guild?
There are many reasons why you should join a guild in Legendary: Game of Heroes, and this is just one of them. Once you hit Player Rank 8, that’s when you should start shopping around for an active guild, though you may want to join one that doesn’t have too many members in total, as that will increase your chance of being chosen as an ally or as part of quest. You’ll get 30 honor points each time a player picks one of your cards as their ally card. You will also get honor points if they choose you for Craft Potions, Bounty Hunt, or any of the other timed quests. Now what can you do with these honor points?
Honor points are what you will be using to buy Honor XP Packs. These packs are guaranteed to come with one hero of three-star rarity, plus other goodies, including gold, an XP potion, stamina, and a catalyst. These are affordable card packs that could give you a good chance of getting some solid, if not spectacular heroes, though the key here is to be selected regularly for quests and as an ally.
2. Try This Method To Get Honor Points
You can get honor points even if you don’t join a guild, though this would also require some involvement in the game’s social element. You can add random players from around the world as in-game friends, and once you’ve added some people, you can choose their cards at any given time. You get 100 honor points each time you accept a new friend, and once a friend chooses your card, you get 30 honor points.
3. Check Out The Hero Book
If you’re not exactly rich in gems, you can go fish for hero cards, if you want to put it that way, by killing enemies as usual. Any enemies defeated in battle work as cards in their own way, so you can go ahead and use them. You can also check the Hero Book to get information on the level where you can find a specific hero you want to collect.
There is a caveat to this method, though. When using these methods, you shouldn’t expect any hero with a rarity of greater than three stars. That means any heroes you’ll be getting this way are solid at best, even when fully evolved. But three stars is better than one or two, and that should serve you well if you’re just starting out in the game. You may want to try the two aforementioned methods, though, once you’re at a more advanced stage. Or you could buy card packs with gems, which we shall be discussing in the very next tip.
4. What Kind Of Card Packs Can You Buy With Your Gems?
At the card store, you can buy card packs with your gems, which are the game’s premium currency. What’s in it for you when you buy these card packs?
For starters, Dark Slayers I costs 300 gems and comes with one guaranteed slayer hero with three-star rarity or better. Slayers are heroes that specialize in dishing out damage to raid bosses. That means you can bring a slayer hero along to the ongoing Sprawling Darkness raid event, where players and guilds that deal out the most damage to bosses get a four-star hero card, gold, gems, and more freebies.
The silver Premium Hero pack costs 500 gems, and it comes with one three-star hero or better, and three bonus cards that may be catalysts. You also get other free stuff such as gold, stamina, or XP potions.
The Starter Pack costs 1,500 gems, and while that’s five times the cost of Dark Slayers I and thrice the cost of silver Premium Hero, you’ll get much more – four heroes guaranteed at three stars or better, a four-star Lunia Abomination card, plus 20 XP potions, 100 stamina, and 50,000 gold. That’s quite a lot for 1,500 gems, though it gets better with the fourth and last card pack option.
Now if you’ve got tons of gems and are willing to spend big-time to improve your collection big-time, you want to buy the gold Premium Hero x11 pack. That’s like the aforementioned silver Premium Hero pack times eleven, though it will cost you ten times as much, at 5,000 gems. You’ll get ten heroes with three-star rarity or better, and one hero with four-star rarity or better. Don’t let the plethora of solid, unspectacular three-star minimum heroes discourage you, though, as the operative word is minimum; they might turn out to be five- or six-star heroes! As far as card packs go, this is as good as it gets, so make sure you save up for this one if you’re closing in fast on 5,000 gems.
