Tap Titans 2 is the latest installment in the Tap Titans series, and Game Hive has just released it for Android and iOS users alike. This is an idle clicker RPG, which combines the mechanics of traditional clicker/idle clicker games, which include having an active hero and several passive ones, as well as the option to “prestige,” or reset a game with additional perks, with the features of traditional RPGs, such as the ability to form teams of heroes, defeat villains across different worlds, customize those heroes, and have pets fight alongside them. You can even create your own clan or join one, which is something you don’t always see in games like this.
This is quite a deep, intensive clicker RPG that we already gave you tips for – in the first part of our Tap Titans 2 strategy guide, we covered several topics and answered several questions about the game and its features/mechanics. But that was just the first part, as this new Tap Titans 2 strategy guide covers even more tips and strategies which you can use regardless of how new or experienced you are in the game. So read on if you need help with this game and want to push on forward after the first part!
1. How Can Polly The Pet Help You?
There are several pets in the game, and the first one you will be able to equip is Polly, who works by multiplying the gold you collect while she’s equipped and fighting alongside you. That means you will get more gold once it pops out after you’ve just killed an enemy, or whenever the fairy passes by and drops some gold. And if you want to use Polly better, you’ll want to switch over to her right before you tap the fairy or land the final blow on a boss or to Chesterton. That will allow you to get a boosted package of coins, or a similarly boosted chest. You can switch back once you’re done with the collecting process.
2. How Does Pet Damage Work?
Yes, we’re still in the topic of pets, and this time we shall be talking about pet damage. This is calculated as a percentage of tap damage, and that means you’ll be boosting your pet whenever you boost your taps. Using a simple example, let’s look at Phobos, who works by multiplying your tapping power; multiply Phobos’ damage by the tap power multiplier. Remember that your pet damage percentage is, once again, multiplied by tap percentage, and if you keep this in mind, you’ll realize just how effective Phobos can be if used properly.
3. Overview Of Pet Attacks
As we often love to say, the pets in RPGs aren’t cuddly or conventional – these are companion characters who often take the form of direwolves and the like, and play a key role on the battlefield. And that includes attacking, as you can see if you’ve been playing Tap Titans 2 for some time. Pets start out with an ordinary attack, which launches after about 25 taps or so. The charge attack is a manual attack, and once you unleash it, your pet will travel upward, and will soon be surrounded by three white balls. Tapping will then allow your pet to be charged, and that in turn will fill up its charge bar. Your pet will be surrounded by a white glow once all three of the balls have filled up, and that’s your cue to tap on it to unleash its charge attack. We recommend using this attack for boss battles, where things can often get quite hairy.
4. There’s A Technique To Buying Duplicate Pets
The game will allow you to buy duplicate pets, but there’s a bit of a method to the madness. Should you see a pet whom you want to buy a duplicate for, you’re free to buy as many as you could, though you need to have enough gems to do so. Your first purchase will cost 25 gems, with the price doubling for each time you buy another duplicate. But you will have to buy all the dupes needed within the specified timeframe; once the timer runs out, you cannot buy any more duplicates!
You’ll want to use this technique when it comes to pets who do their magic through tap multipliers, such as Phobos or Hamy. Buying a duplicate pet, much like duplicates of Pokemon in Pokemon GO, is encouraged, as you can use those duplicates to help level up your existing version.
5. A Simple Explanation Of Level Rounding
Level rounding is a classic idle clicker mechanic that’s also among the many in Tap Titans 2. How does this work? Well, you won’t get the exact number of levels upgraded once you upgrade x10 or x100 levels. What you will get instead is a new level rounded off to the nearest multiple of 10 or 100. And since this could be quite a costly process, we recommend using level rounding (e.g. upgrading by multiples of 10 or 100) if you’re trying to buy the right upgrades to get a new hero skill or DPS boost, while also saving on money and eliminating upgrades that won’t do you much good after all. Level rounding can be turned on and off in the game’s options.
6. What Should You Be Boosting?
There are several areas which you can boost in the game, and the most important one is Fire Sword, as that’s going to be the most important attribute that’s going to help you make it past levels faster and with less trouble. Next up, focus on Hand of Midas, as that will come in handy when the Fire Sword’s effect isn’t as strong as it had used to be. This boost is also helpful as it allows you to profit more in the long run. Critical Strike/Hit and War Cry, on the other hand, are third- and fourth-most important to boost, and compared to the first two, you can pretty much disregard them.
7. Don’t Spam Special Skills
In the first Tap Titans, it was all well and good to spam special attacks, or in other words, hitting them simultaneously. But in Tap Titans 2, things have changed; all of the special attacks draw from the same batch of mana. That means it won’t be a very practical idea to use all of those attacks at the same time. Definitely, you should be launching your special skills, but don’t launch them all at the same time! It won’t do you any good anyway.
8. Use All Mana And Fire Swords Before Making It Rain
You are probably familiar with this term as it’s been used on several clicker games, especially the ones that encourage you to make as much in-game money as possible. This simply means specific actions (they can differ per clicker) that would lead to you, as the player, earning a ton of money. And when talking about Tap Titans 2, you should use up all your mana and Fire Swords to defeat as many extra bosses as possible before you Make it Rain right ahead of prestiging. Likewise, do this prior to accepting bonus coins as a daily reward, and remember that you will earn more coins if you accept a daily coin gift or Make it Rain at a higher level.
Follow the simple tips above and you’ll be making it rain at the right time.
9. You Can Still Prestige While Playing Tournaments
The game will allow you to prestige at any time even if you’re playing the game in tournament mode. There’s an obvious catch here, as prestiging is going to drop you down in the rankings, but if you’ve got enough time, it’s still a good idea to prestige. If you end up with a better artifact, you might be able to easily beat your old high score and rank up much faster and much higher than you would have done so before your last prestige.
10. How Do You Earn Skill Points?
Skill points are fairly easy to come by in most games of this kind, but in Tap Titans 2, skill points are as rare as you can get. You earn them when you prestige, and can also earn them once you defeat a boss on a new stage that’s a multiple of 50; normally, you cannot grind for skill points by beating a boss multiple times in replays. That means you can earn skill points if you beat a boss at level 50, 100, 150, etc. It’s okay to change skill distribution in the middle of a game, but we recommend against doing this, as it’s going to cost you a lot of premium currency to do this – a good 35 diamonds that can be easily spent on other things.
11. How To Earn Free Diamonds
Diamonds are Tap Titans 2’s premium currency, and the best way to earn more diamonds is to complete more achievements. That’s all well and good, but there are other options available if you’re loading up on the skill points. For example, you can make use of social media by following the game on Twitter or liking it on Facebook; each action will earn you 50 diamonds each, all free of charge. You can also connect your game to Facebook by going to your phone’s settings, then Accounts – that will give you 100 bonus diamonds, again for free. Signing in to Game Center, for iOS users, is worth 50 free diamonds.
12. Try Completing Some Of The More Difficult Achievements
Many of the achievements in Tap Titans 2 can be completed simply by playing the game like you normally would. But others are stranger in nature, and it’s those “strange” or peculiar achievements that you want to focus on as well. For example, you might have to kill so many Titans in order to complete that achievement. So if you want to do this, prestige so you can reset your game. Once in one of the earlier levels, you can stop the game in the middle of as boss battle, and kill Titans like you normally would so you can come up with as many consecutive Titan kills as possible over a shorter period of time. This could get complicated and could take a lot of work, but at least it’s a great way to help you get free gems.
13. Play The Clan Challenge
Should you decide to get social and join a clan, you should be playing the Clan Challenge whenever and wherever possible. In fact, we recommend playing it every day, as that’s going to give you more chances to increase the clan multiplier. You can also buy the Clan Crate at the shop if you’ve got a lot of gems on you. That’s going to earn you a Make it Rain equivalent for anyone and everyone in your clan. And that’s where the social element will come in to play again – it’s important that you try persuading your clan’s members to take advantage of those options, emphasizing that everyone in the clan could earn a ton of money through the partnership.
14. Don’t Worry If You Can’t Finish A Boss Battle In The First Try
You shouldn’t fret too much if you weren’t able to finish a boss battle in your first try at it. Even if you don’t make it, nobody in your team of heroes will get killed, allowing you to try again with an intact lineup. But if you try beating that very same boss and end up losing a second time, you will likely have to deal with one or more of your heroes dying. So if you’re planning on a rematch against any given boss in the game, you should make sure that you’ve got a solid chance of winning, lest you risk losing heroes in the process.
