Knights Chronicle guide - How to make the most of your knight selector ticket

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 16th, 2018

The best thing about Knights Chronicle is how friendly it is to players that don’t want to spend any money on it. Although it’s surface structure looks like a ton of stingy moves trying to squeeze money out of players, there are a ton of free perks Netmarble grants to players just for sticking with the game.

One of these perks is the Knight Selector Ticket, which grants players the option to choose any white or dark knight SSR units if they log into Knights Chronicle daily for 28 days. This provides an awesome opportunity for all players to fill key gaps in their current rosters with some really quality units, provided they make their choice carefully. If you’re wondering what units are best to pick for your 28 day Knight Selector Ticket, keep reading to learn how to best up your game with this sweet perk.

Who to avoid

Of the White and Dark Knights to select in Knights Chronicle, there isn’t one that stands head and shoulders above the rest as the best pick for all players. That said, there are a couple heroes that generally don’t provide a ton of utility that you should probably avoid.

Namely, Marduk, Damian, and Nemesis are pretty weak picks at the moment. Marduk struggles mostly because he only offers tons of defense without much damage output, prolonged taunting abilities, or useful hero talents. Damian, on the other hand, can become pretty great at deleting other characters, but getting him there takes a lot of investment in maxing him out, whereas Dark Knights like Ashley or Mary are pretty effective attackers almost immediately. Lastly, there’s Nemesis, who can be useful to counter teams that have a lot of reviving characters, but a lot of her damage output is dependent on generating Dark Orbs, which is a process that takes way too long at the moment.

Who to pick and why

If you pick any knights besides the three listed above, you’ll likely be a pretty happy camper, but let’s delve a little deeper into what each of these remaining characters have to offer:

    • Ramu - Despite being listed as a Hybrid-type fighter, Ramu is one of the best support characters in Knights Chroncile. This is mostly because she restores 10% of her party’s HP every turn and has the ability to revive two heroes at once with her ultimate ability. Her weakness is that she doesn’t really put out much damage at all, but all of her skills have utility outside of that that make Ramu one of the best picks you can make from this selector, both for PvP and PvE.
    • Mary - Mary is an offensive powerhouse. She has an extremely powerful ultimate ability that attacks all enemies at once and a chance to make three of her targets unable to revive. Mary is also interesting in that she gets more powerful as enemies die, making her a bigger threat the further into a fight you get. Out of all the knights available, Mary is a great pick, particularly if you want a great damage dealer for PvE missions.
    • Deimos - If Ramu sounds interesting, but you want a more traditional support character to add to your roster, Deimos is your best bet. Deimos not only provides healing, but also can remove buffs from enemies and grant Veil of Phantasm to your entire team, allowing you to avoid hard-hitting attacks right when you need to. Simply put, if you need a support hero and already have Ramu, or want someone more specialized for keeping your team alive, choose Deimos.
    • Ashley - The king of damage over time, Ashley is a great attacker to add to your party if you’re looking to build a team that excels at longer combat encounters. His kit involves an ability called Ebony Wound, which deals damage to heroes with it every turn and cannot be removed. On top of this, Ashley’s ultimate ability can do some amazing burst damage to a single target with the possibility to stunning for two turns as well. Of everyone in the selector, Ashley is probably best suited for people looking for a PvP damage dealer.

Make the best choice for your team

Ramu and Ashley are probably the best heroes to pick from this selector, but that doesn’t meant you should just blindly choose one of them. As mentioned in previous guides, Knights Chronicle is much more about having a team that works well together rather than just having a collection of powerful heroes.

At the end of the day, Mary might be just what you need to make your Dark/Water team be even more destructive, or you may want to take a chance on Marduk because you don’t have any defensive heroes at all and want to see if a future update buffs him a bit. No matter who you pick, just make sure it makes sense for your current hero box, and you can’t go wrong.

What mobile games are we looking forward to in the second half of 2018? - Emily's picks

Posted by Emily Sowden on July 11th, 2018

2018 has been a bit of a mix in mobile gaming. We've had some real gems like Oddmar, Candleman, and Dandara, and we've had some disappointments, but what about the future?

These upcoming games have me excited for a number of different reasons, and some of them are a little – er – weird. Though it's easy to just focus on what we know is coming and what we know we're going to get, it's much more fun to look forward and speculate on what we don't know, eh?

Pokemon Quest iOS screenshot - A Bellsprout

Knights Chronicle guide - Which SR and R units to keep

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 27th, 2018

If you've been playing Knights Chronicle like we have, you've been summoning a bunch of heroes and then scouring the internet to find out which ones are worth keeping and which ones aren't. After all, you don't want to over fill your Hero Box and spend valuable gems on making it bigger.

Maze: Shadow of Light preview screenshot - Taking on a giant

There are plenty of midcore action RPGs on the App Store. In fact, there are so many it's sometimes difficult to tell them apart. At least that's not the case with Maze: Shadow of Light. It's a stunning looking game, with a 3D cartoon style that leaps off the screen and grabs you by the eyeballs.

But is a shiny lick of paint going to be enough to make this one stand out when it moves out of soft launch? Well we took to the Malaysian App Store to give the game the once over, in order to let you know whether this should be on your wish list or your wish-I'd-never-heard-of-it list. Which I imagine everyone has.
