In some cases, Angry Birds Epic is going to be many players’ first encounter with a turn-based RPG. While it might not be the deepest of experiences to old-hands at the genre, we felt it was the perfect time to provide you with some helpful hints to start you off, as you work towards wiping out the evil pigs yet again.


Basic Battle Strategies

Regular RPG players will tell you that there are a few core principles that apply no matter what game you’re playing. Angry Birds Epic is no different in that respect.

  • Knowing your enemy is always key in these kind of instances. Angry Birds Epic makes it simple with holding a finger to each pig – enabling you to see what abilities they possess, so you know exactly what to expect.
  • There’s no penalty for exiting to the map at this point so you can easily do that to change birds or hats (special abilities), so that you’re at your strongest for each fight. Remember: different classes work better in different situations!
  • Generally, you should always focus on healer pigs or ones that can resurrect other downed pigs. There’s no point inflicting plenty of damage on other enemies if the healer can undo your good work with one spell!
  • Some pigs are immune to certain statuses, so consider that before you make your move. A pig that can resist poison? Well, don’t bother trying to poison it then! It’s a simple idea, but one that can easily be forgotten about in the heat of battle.
  • There’s nothing to be gained from weakening multiple pigs at once, so always focus on one pig at a time. Ideally, and assuming there aren’t healing pigs to pick on, you should go for the weaker and smaller prey first before taking out the big brutes.

  • After you’ve built up a sufficient number of attacks, you can use a rage chilli to perform a special attack that relates to that character’s abilities. Use it up whenever possible. They don’t carry over between battles so there’s no point letting it go to waste! The only exception here is when dealing with wave battles as it’s better to save the chilli for the start of a new wave. They replenish frequently so you can often use a couple during a series of battles.
  • Unlike in other RPGs, using a health potion doesn’t take up a turn. It’s a small yet significant thing to consider, given it can make all the difference in battle.
  • Struggling to defeat a particularly tricky foe? Watch the videos that Rovio keep offering. These give you a 20% increase in health and attack power. They’re limited in number so try to save them for a special occasion. They can really make all the difference.
  • Always have a healer in your party. Attacking like crazy is all well and good, but it’s pointless if you get wiped out too soon. Healing helps. A lot.


    General tips

  • Equipment is key throughout Angry Birds Epic. It’s simple enough to craft from pieces gained during battle, but there are some useful ways to make it all the better.
  • Replay missions often for more items and loot that can then be used elsewhere. Plus, aim for those magical three-star victories. These are based upon how much health you have at the end of a battle so heal up just before the end for the maximum chance of three stars.
  • Check the scavenge points every day for new loot to be acquired. It can be pretty profitable.
  • Similarly, daily dungeons unlock after a certain point and these are invaluable.
  • Get friends involved as they can enable you to re-roll when crafting equipment. Re-rolling dictates whether you get the fabled 3 star piece of equipment or a weaker 2 star one.
  • Save up for a Golden Anvil. It’s not cheap, needing Lucky Coins to buy one, but keep leveling up and play naturally for a week or two and this should be possible. A Golden Anvil means better gear, which makes all the difference in battle.
