Dragalia Lost - Who to upgrade if you don't have five-star Adventurers

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 23rd, 2018

As a gacha game, Dragalia Lost only allows you to build your teams of Adventurers out of the best units you have around you. So, although we may all want to have teams full of S tier five-star Adventurers, that’s simply not realistic.

Most players may have only one or no five-star Adventurers and will have to resort to putting together a rag-tag group of “lesser” heroes. Fortunately, Dragalia Lost is pretty well balanced so that you don’t need ultra rare units to do well in late game content, though they aren’t great about letting you know who these folks are. See below for my picks of some of Dragalia Lost’s best non-five-star heroes (and even some advice about five-star units to avoid):

Dragalia Lost Imperial Onslaught Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 22nd, 2018

Now that Dragalia Lost has been out for a bit, most players have likely found time between limited events like Loyalty’s Requiem and Trick or Treasure to complete the game’s campaign. If you somehow haven’t yet though, make sure you do, as completion of Dragalia Lost’s campaign unlocks a new mission type called The Imperial Onslaught.

The Imperial Onslaught is a pretty tough mission type, but they’re extremely worth adding to your daily regimen once you have access to them. These missions grant unique rewards that can allow you to do everything from advance your Facility Level to create some of the most powerful weapons in the game. See below for everything you need to know about The Imperial Onslaught.

Dragalia Lost Trick or Treasure Jumpstart Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 19th, 2018

It’s finally here! Loyalty’s Requiem ended in Dragalia Lost, but it has swiftly been replaced with a new Halloween event. This event—called Trick or Treasure—had quite a bit of hype surrounding it before it came out, and for good reason too.

This isn’t just another raid-based event for another element type. It’s a facility event, meaning it’s focused around letting you earn rewards to help you upgrade your Castle Grounds. In light of the fact that Trick or Treasure is such a different beast, we’ve put together a quick and dirty guide on how to get a jumpstart on this Halloween event.

Dragalia Lost Daily Tasks Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 16th, 2018

Part of what makes gacha games compelling (and sometimes annoying) is their grind. You’re always supposed to be advancing something in these games, meaning you need to be checking in on your progress once or multiple times a day to make sure you’re progressing at an optimal pace.

Something nice about Dragalia Lost is that its daily grind is relatively light compared to similar games. This is to say the specific objectives given to you every day aren’t something that takes a huge time investment. That said though, there’s quite a few tasks you should be doing every day to advance your progress, even though they aren’t daily quests. See below:

Everything you need to know to grab the most territory in Paper.io 2

Posted by Elizabeth Eagen-Jones on October 2nd, 2018

Voodoo games has come out with a sequel to their territory-claiming game Paper.io, and we have all the tips you need to chew up the scenery and claim the crown. We've put a good few hours into the game now, and we've picked up some impressive hints and tips along the way. So we're going to share them with you.

Make sure you click this link to check out all of our other handy guides. Whether you like your games casual or hardcore, there's going to be something in there that's going to help you. Right then, let's get on with making you the best Paper.io 2 player in the whole of the world.

Please note, that's not a guarantee.

Start out small

When you start up the game, you'll be thrown into an arena with several other players. How close they are to you - and how much time they've already had to start claiming territory - seems to largely be up to chance. When you first arrive, then, start out by coloring in small pieces of the world until you get a feel for things, and figure out where your opponents are.

Watch and wait

When it comes to the other players, it's best to avoid them until you have some territory claimed. Crossing another player's unfinished line will cause you to die, and while it might also take them out, that won't help you win any more ground. As your area grows larger you can try to manipulate your opponents into crossing your line by drawing in front of them, but you'll want to make sure they don't try to do the same to you.

Nibble it up

While you want to be careful about crossing the lines of your opponents, you shouldn't hesitate to take a bite out of their territory in order to add to your own. In fact, you'll likely have to in order to keep adding to your score, especially as the game progresses. Again, it's easiest to take little pieces at first, but if you realize your opponent is far away - or not paying attention - that's your chance to take a sizeable piece of their claim.

Consider ad-free

The only transaction in the game is a purchase to remove ads, and if you really want to rise to the top, you might consider forking over the cash. The ads are frustratingly intrusive, playing after almost every round, and it can be hard to get into the flow of the game when you're constantly interrupted by them. Removing them lets you get rounds in quicker, and get more practice -but how worthwhile it is to have the extra time is up to you.

Knights Chronicle guide - How to get crystals without spending money

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 31st, 2018

In Knights Chronicle, crystals are king. There are certainly other important forms of currency or consumables out there (i.e. gold, stamina, etc.), but crystals are they key to progress in the game. Without crystals, you can't summon new heroes, and without new heroes, you're really limited in terms of how far you can progress.

Luckily, Knights Chronicle is pretty good about doling out crystals, provided you know where to look for them. See below for all these ways you can earn crystals without spending any money in Knights Chronicle.
