If you find yourself struggling to win, you can always rely on our Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians strategy guide for some help!
1. Assemble Your Teams Wisely
There are four types of warriors in Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians: Attacker, Defender, Support, and Saboteur. Each warrior also has an elemental affinity. The four elements are Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. Keeping these things in mind, it is now your job to come up with three balanced teams. The first team would be for progression in the main story. The second team is for PVP, and the third is purely for farming resources.
While it is possible to assemble a team that would be able to survive in different situations, it would a mediocre team in all three. That means you would only be able to go so far in the game if you stick to a non-specialized team. It is better if you work with three teams that have their own focus to ensure sustained viability even as you progress in the game.
When deciding on specific warriors to bring along, check their skills. Healers are always good inclusions since your units do not heal in between waves. Warriors with poison attacks are also great for whittling away at the enemy team’s health. You may also want to bring along creatures with skills that hit multiple targets, although keep in mind that such skills often suffer from lack of damage. Prioritize these warriors as they will be very valuable in all PVE missions.
2. Taunt Your Enemies
If you can find a creature that can taunt your opponents, make sure you include him in your lineup. Taunting enemies ensures that your damage dealers are able to freely hit the enemies without worrying about retaliation. A good example is Stone Guard since he can taunt his enemies and heal himself at the same time. This makes him difficult to take down, giving your backline plenty of time to eliminate the enemy team.
3. Complete Your Daily Missions
An easy way to gather a lot of materials and experience in Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians is through your Daily Missions. These are simple routine tasks that you can perform every day. These tasks include upgrading, fighting, and even spending Instant Tickets. The more Missions you complete, the more rewards you get. Since regularly doing these tasks help keep you on the right track anyway, it wouldn’t hurt to complete them daily.
Achievements are milestones that you reach within the game. They also reward you with various resources, experience, and currency, but they take a bit longer to work on. Before claiming any of the rewards, make sure you check your experience bar. If you are about to level up, deplete your energy first. Leveling up will refill your energy, so the free refill would be wasted if you don’t use up all your energy beforehand.
4. Chug Level Potions
As you go through the missions and achievements, you will eventually gather a lot of level up potions. These come in three sizes: Small, Medium, and Large. As you could probably guess, the bigger the potion, the more experience you gain from it. These potions are great for leveling up your team members without spending energy. Don’t be afraid to use them all up on your main team. The faster you can raise your team’s level, the easier it will be for you to progress in the game.
5. Creatures Like Glyphs
Glyphs are items that can be equipped on the creatures you have recruited. They offer great stat boosts when equipped on your creatures. The boosts are increased further when you complete the three-glyph sets. Make sure you distribute your glyphs among your creatures in order to create a balanced team. You should also take time to upgrade your runes whenever you can to increase their effects. Keep in mind that you will need to spend Crystals if you are going to remove a glyph that has been equipped. Think carefully before equipping in order to avoid wasting Crystals. The only alternative would be to wait for the Free Glyph Removal events that run in the game from time to time.
Choosing the right glyph for your creatures is one of the most important decisions you will make in the game. Healers will benefit greatly from haste glyphs since you want them to get their turn before the enemy deals any more damage. Accuracy glyphs, on the other hand, is best used for debuffing creatures in order to increase the chances of success. Finally, you want to give lifesteal glyphs to tanks or multi-hit damage dealers in order to keep their health up.
6. Hold On To Your Soulstones
In Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians there are several types of resources, and some of them are a little harder to come by than others. One of these resources is Soulstone. Soulstones are used to summon creatures. The creatures you get are random, although better Soulstones offer better chances of acquiring rare summons. Minor Soulstones are the lowest kind, while Legendary Soulstones are the best. Make sure you don’t use up all your Soulstones because they may come in handy in the future. For example, some Events will give you rewards but only if you have the required number of Soulstones. The same is true for other rare resources like Seals. It pays to always have a few tucked away in case the right Event comes along.
If you come upon fragments, you will be able to combine them to create full Soulstones. The number of fragments required to create a Soulstone depends on the rarity. Minor Soulstones only require 20 fragments to create. Epic and Legendary Soulstones require 50 and 100 fragments respectively.
7. Don’t Dismiss 2-Star Creatures
Unlike other similar games where 2-star creatures are equivalent to waste of space, there are a few hidden gems in Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians that can be nurtured. You should always check the skill sets of your creatures because you might find one that has a few useful skills. With some training, you can turn even 2-star creatures into real contenders. It is all a matter of recognizing the potential early on and investing accordingly.
To keep your 2-star creatures viable even in later levels, you need to rank them up. Raise them until level 20 then you can sacrifice two other creatures to rank them up. Ranking up increases the star rating of your creature. They will go back to level 1 but their potential greatly increases. Make sure you take time to rank up all the members of your team in order to max out their potential.
If you are worried about leveling up your newly ranked up creature, don’t worry. Aside from using level up potions, you can boost them by replaying older levels then pairing them up with one of your stronger creatures. Let the stronger creature wipe out the enemies while your newly ranked up creature sits back and watches.
8. Upgrade Your Skills
Upgrading skills in the game greatly improves their effects and even lowers their cooldown. This is on top of the improvement they get from your character leveling up. The catch, however, is that upgrading skills can be very costly. You will need to acquire a magical book first. Once you have the book, you also need to sacrifice four creatures of the same type. That means you need to gather a whole lot of creatures in order to upgrade skills. Make sure you hold on to any duplicate creatures you find, so you will have sacrifices available in case you pick up a book.
9. Check The Enemy Team
One of the things that will help you decide when it comes to team composition is the members of the enemy team. Main campaign and timed dungeons will tell you the enemies you are about to go up against. This will give you an idea on what kind of damage you need to bring with you. During battle, you will notice an arrow above your opponent. Green or yellow arrows mean you will be able to deal damage to that enemy. Red arrows mean that enemy is immune to your damage. Make sure you never attack when there is a red arrow because you would just be wasting a turn.
10. Know Your Elements
As we mentioned above, there are four elements in the game: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. These elements interact with each other in certain ways. Fire is strong against Earth. Earth is strong against Air. Air is strong against Water. Water is strong against Fire. Keep these elemental advantages in mind when assembling your team. If you followed our previous advice about checking the enemy team beforehand, you should have no problems deciding which elements to take with you in battle.
11. Save Your Magic Attack
Battles typically have multiple waves, with the final wave having the strongest opponents. With this in mind, make sure you save your custom character’s magic attack for the final wave. This will give you the edge you need to wipe out the strongest wave in the battle. Don’t worry about interrupting another warrior’s attack with your magic. That warrior will still be able to attack right after you complete your spell. Of course, if there is only one wave in the battle, there is no point in holding back. Unleash all your best attacks and hope for the best!
12. Choose A House Wisely
As we mentioned above, there are three Houses in Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians. These are Anima, Materia, and Chimera. Of course, you can only choose to activate one House at a time. That means you will have to make a choice, and it won’t be an easy one. It will cost you 10 Seals to choose a House. You will have to spend another 10 Seals if you want to switch to a different House. Take time to read the upgrade paths for each House in order to avoid wasting Seals.
If you cannot decide on a House, you could try out the Anima House. It has a good chance of triggering a speed boost for your allies. This will come in handy when you are in the middle of a tough battle. It also has plenty of party boosts in its upgrade tree. You could pick up an added poison effect for your creature attacks, or even get a chance to negate 40% of any damage your party will receive.
13. Log In Daily For A Month To Get Rewards
The game gives out daily login rewards for players who are active. The rewards include Seals, Crystals, energy, and other useful items. You also get a +30 energy bonus on each bonus day which occurs after the 25th of each month. Login rewards reset each month, so if you started late into the month, you will not be able to complete all the rewards. The good news, though, is that you will have a full new set of rewards the following month. Just log in consistently for 30 consecutive days and watch your rewards pile up!
Don’t forget that you can also get lucky by simply looking around the home screen after you log in. Free Crystals and Seals can be found floating around from time to time. You just need to look around for a couple of seconds to make sure you don’t miss them. It’s not a lot but freebies are always welcome.
14. Farm For Items
Farming is an important part of any RPG. You won’t be able to get all the items you need without having to grind for a bit. Make sure you pay attention to the potential drops before grinding a level. Aside from farming glyphs, books are particularly useful items that you should be looking for. These are rare items that upgrade creature stats. You can farm for books at level 3 of the Elemental Fire Tower or level 3 of the Tower of Houses in the Dragonmist Isles. Later on, when you are stronger, you can frequent levels 8 through 10 of the Tower of Houses for a better chance of finding books.
15. Find Fellows On Official Discord Channel
Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians has a Discord channel where players gather and share information. You can whip up a quick Discord account and join the official game channel in order to meet fellow players. You will even meet veteran players who have been around since the soft launch. Whether you decide to just lurk, or actively seek out advice, you will surely find useful information here.
