Tapstar Interactive’s Immortal Legends is an iOS game that allows you to recreate the Chinese “Journey to the West.” According to the game’s story, the “unlikeliest of heroes” have teamed up to help their monk make that Journey to the West, and it’s your job to recover the sacred scrolls and bring peace to the kingdom. In terms of genre, this can be best called an action-strategy game, but there are a lot of tower defense elements, as the title allows you to get “complete control of god-like heroes” and come up with your own strategies and tactics to make the most of their powers.
If you’re just starting out with this game and want to move forward a little faster, we suggest that you read this list of beginner-oriented Immortal Legends tips and tricks. Even if you’ve been playing the game for some time, you could make use of the tips we’ll be presenting to you, but if you’re new and want to get a leg up, this guide should be everything you need and then some.
1. Play The Game With The Goal To Earn More Heroes
We might as well warn you about this while early – the learning curve can be steep, and you might find yourself in over your head after a few minutes of play. But once you complete the first few levels, you’ll be rewarded with new and more powerful heroes. Of course, that would require you to pay more attention to the finer points of the game, but the good thing is that you’ll have a better chance of staving off the myriad enemies that will be attacking you.
Just to set your expectations, there’s a good chance you’ll be losing a few lotus leaves once you’ve gotten done with the first few levels, but as we’ll be telling you in a bit, it’s easy to get those lost leaves back.
2. Consider Your Allies’ Strengths And Weaknesses
As it is in other games of this type, it’s very important to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your individual allies. For example, you’ll want to look at two of the first three allies you acquire in the game. Little Monkey is best used as a ranged attacker, as that’s what he’s good at – firing at enemies from afar. Big Monkey, on the other hand, is best used as a tank. Yes, he can also help out with some melee attacks, but he’s most ideally a tank because his attacking skills aren’t too impressive, but his health points are.
3. Place Your Range Allies First
Having given a brief example of each ally’s strengths and weaknesses above, let’s now show you how to put it all in practice. When placing your allies, you want to put your ranged allies first in line, with your melee allies following next. As enemies tend to go after melee allies first (they can be smart like that, but it’s mostly because they’re often the first line of defense), they’ll instead be going after the ranged allies, who will work to take out enemies from longer ranges, finishing off what the melee allies started. This is a bit different from the usual strategy, but it tends to work well for a lot of players.
4. Allow Your Heroes To Attack The Enemies
You may, at times, not have any melee allies to work with, or you may be planning to mix things up to throw the bad guys off. What can you do in this case? Well, you can use your heroes instead and have them do some serious damage against your enemies. Make good use of them and don’t let them go to waste by leaving them standing around. Dispatch your heroes to wherever enemies are located, and you’ll see them fight them off automatically, albeit once within attacking range.
Going back to what we said in the second tip, it’s also important to make sure you’re using the right type of hero for the right situation. There are some heroes that are really best used as attackers, such as Monkey King. Pigsy comes after Monkey King, and is more of a tank, due to his high health stats. In this case, you want Monkey King playing the melee role, and you want Pigsy to soak up that damage and make up for his lack of attacking prowess by being a good tank.
5. Grind And Replay
The learning curve can be very tough, even for beginners, and you may not be able to get the scroll the first time around. Don’t fret, though, as you can always go back once you’ve upgraded yourself well enough, as you’ll then have a better chance of getting the scroll. (Scrolls are earned if you complete a level without losing any lotus leaves.) Replaying levels is also important if you consider that each of the game’s stages have five difficulty levels, and the rewards will differ (and become better) as you move up in difficulty. Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to at least go for completing all levels at Easy and Normal difficulty. And when it comes to the easier stages in the game, why not try going for broke and chasing the rewards for all difficulty levels?
6. Upgrade Heroes And Allies Alike
We’re now down to our last tip, but you may be wondering at this point what the difference is between heroes and allies. Heroes, in a nutshell, are the superstars of your party, while allies are sort of like support characters that nonetheless play a key role in battle. Considering that, you should prioritize upgrading your heroes, but not overlook the allies when it comes to upgrades. All heroes have their own weapons and armor, and you can also upgrade them by spending coins, while you can use your scrolls to unlock new active and passive skills.
You can also upgrade your allies by using coins, which improves their attack, health, and blue orb ratings. And once you’ve maxed out their level, you can then evolve them, just as long as you’ve acquired the materials needed to do so.
