Champions,Geists, comprehensive in every aspect
let me be frank at first, aside from numbers and mathematical algorithms any tip on forum will always be player strategy oriented... i had a friend who would always say all writings are kinda biographical..
if u wanna know what champions are u should first visit Lord Oberon's post, here we will be discussing the optimum ways to do champs and use geists and how to get extra emeralds for what we usually do.. how to avoid extra effort and get to destination faster...
u can find Lord Oberon's post HERE.
words used to describe things can always be misleading or kinda confusing,in cases like this u could always describe them the way they are easier to understand
Champion Grades: grades are based on how rare they are,i usually define them by colors.
grade one or gray ones
grade 2 or green ones
grade 3 or blue ones
Grade 5 or orange ones
each champion regardless of Grade(or as previously shown,their color) also has a rank which i usually categorize by stars...
1 star or rank 1 ! 2,3 or 6 stars or rank 6... that easy
the higher the rank and grade the more bonuses u will receive for ur army or castle..
u level up each champion to be able to to increase rank (star)... to do this u hunt undead and level it up
when leveled up, then u can increase the rank..
from here on, we will discuss how to get more emeralds, how to optimally sacrifice champions ,how to get to a top ranking in tournaments,geists and optimum usage and many more.. for more info on whats pls take a look at Lord Oberon's post
before we start pls note that this is the way I do the champions and this might not be agreeable to some..still try to adjust ur own choice and options in and it should be enough knowledge for u to go on based this including few small adjustment with ur own preferences..
for example,aside from cavaliers i sacrifice even Blue (grade 3 ) champions.. u can chose not to.ill explain my reason for this as the post goes on..
u receive some emerald each time u level up a champion.the amount increases with rank.. u level up a rank 4( 4 star champion) and u receive 50 Emeralds, leveling up a 5 star gives u 100 and 6 star gives 150 emeralds.. there are 2 points to be known here..
1. rank 1,2,3 dnt give much so u can sacrifice them without leveling them up
but u should always level up any 4 and 5 star,even if ur going to sacrifice them as they give a lot of emeralds
as u can see here i leveled up all 4 and 5 stars( rank 4 and 5) as they give 50 and 100 emeralds when leveled up....
so why not get those emeralds before sacrificing them ?
actually there is a way u can receive these amounts twice..
lets go with a 5 star
when this 5 star leveled up it will give u 100 emeralds.
now that u have received 100 emeralds,u can receive it again(twice).all u need to do is just enlighten it.
after enlighten u level it up again and u receive another 100 emeralds...
that's how u receive the reward emeralds twice... that easy...
based on what we have discussed so far:
u need to separate the champions that are of use to you,and the rest which will be used as material to be sacrificed and make the one used go higher in rank
a.iv locked the champions i use or are just too valuable to mistakenly sacrifice.. grade 4 and 5s (purple and oranges) even some blue ones (grade 3s) like beacon defense champions
b.as u go higher ull come to realize that aside from the champions u use or are just too valuable the rest are just material to be sacrificed. so it makes more sense to try and up to 5 star try leveling up only the ones that u come across pretty often ,namely gray ones(grade 1s), these will be ur building blocks.the picture below is just a coicidence that they all are cavaliers.any one star would do
as they were all grey (grade ones) u could also enlighten them easy and get emeralds twice as previously shown... now u can use them to upgrade and increase the rank of a good champion
the point here being always level and star useless ones u dnt use up to 5 star more,along the ones u want ,u 5 star a champion and get 100 emeralds,then enlighten it again and get another 100 emeralds.. u need 5 of 5 stars to sacrifice to increase the rank of a good one to 6.but u also get an extra 500 emeralds too this way...
Orbs : very important resource in game. some u receive ingame events or activities easier than others.some u have to buy. these have to be used carefully and with caution specially the rare ones.
things to do and how to about orbs :
a. categorize the champions based on what u use the most , what u rarely use ,what can be useful but u just dnt get to use
first pls note that in the end it all comes down to each players game strategy but still, u have a fort offence champion in grade 5, very good champion yes ,this is ur only champion so u apply ur first 3 orbs on it.. i wouldnt do that ! id wait to apply it to a champion i use..or i wouldnt use it on BG champions to begin with ..thats alot of orbs wasted.unless iv already maxed my other champs
orbs provide lots of stat boost,no matter of their rarity
b.as u can see every orb counts so u need to be careful how and where u use them.so before u use them ,think about what champion u want more strong.save ur orbs even if u dnt have the one u want..its gonna be worth it...
Geists: these are material that make the effort u make lot less,
here we will be discussing how to use them optimally, pls note that this is how i use them,others viewpoint might differ...
things u need to know b4 we start:
a. Geists can only be used with the champions of same color (grade) if not used for leveling up, the upside is that they are already maxed in level so u dnt put any effort in it to hunt undead and level it up to increase the rank
which can also be used later as material again
Doing these,using Geists will save u alot of time
please also note that higher Geists are not worth using as leveled up champion like formerly mentioned ones.they are only good to be sacrificed or used as a level up. namely grade 4 (purple Geists)
These geists shouldn't be used like the normal lower grade ones
Normal champion tournament : u want to be in a top ranking and just dnt know how ? its easy..
the higher the rank the more xp u receive.. up to the point a 6 star champion gives more than 1 mil xp points.. all u need to do is collect them and level up during XP tournament... i realize its hard to collect so many... but dnt worry as i said u can collect even 4 stars.. u level them up,then u increase the rank to 5 so u also get to level up that 5 star too, point here being the more high rank champions u have the more XP ull receive in tournaments..
u level up and get points,then u enlighten and level up again,that easy .. u can also help ur ranking by manually doing champs too..
treasure hunt champion tournament:
u receive one or more holy bond for certain in this event,some argue this one is not cost efficient or its not worth the recharges and emeralds used.im not gonna discuss that. just how to achieve the points u need to get those rewards...
no matter of rewards and no matter of how many bonds there are,there is one certain feature to them. yes they are mostly achieved by luck and a chance element is present to some extent, the certain feature is that with critical strikes ull always receive points..
all u need to do is set ur highest enlightened to a solo-hunt,the higher the better as it gets more chance to get a critical strike chance,here its an enlightened grade 4(purple) so it has a 40% critical chance
pls note how many prizes iv collected in few short mins.here u can also set ur high rank(stars) to a group hunt (not leveled up ones) and use ur highest one manually..whatever floats ur boat.if its a solo hunt pls note that champion is already maxed so u dnt need to activate champion xp boosters.
that brings me to few last things u need to know about champions :
1. if its ur target to get XP (experience points) for ur champs,always activate ur boosts
2. always save ur epic and holy bonds for events. there are ingame events in which u receive a bonus chance to summon a better champion. in one u receive 2x chance to summon a grade 5 from a holy bond or if u open 3 bonds one will be a grade 5 for certain.. try to hold onto ur bonds for these events
if u had any questions let me know,
