Posted by Campbell Bird on September 12th, 2018

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.

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 30th, 2018

Golfing Around may not be as crazy as other Colin Lane golf games, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be difficult. On the contrary, playing a more straightforward golf game is actually pretty tough. You don’t have any fancy tricks up your sleeve to use. It’s just you, your clubs, and the course.

Knights Chronicle guide - Everything you need to know about Guild Battles

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 14th, 2018

The latest update to Knights Chronicle brought us some balance changes and interesting new characters, but perhaps the most interesting addition of all is the game’s new mode. Guild Battle allows teams of players to test their collective strength against others, but participating in it isn’t as straightforward as you might think.

Underneath the basic premise of “beat as many other players as possible,” Guild Battle actually has some nuanced mechanics to it that can make the difference between being a mere contributor to your guild and a guild hero. Check out our tips below:

Knights Chronicle guide - Everything you need to know about the August 9 update

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 8th, 2018

It seems like every two weeks, we can expect some new and exciting things to come to Knights Chronicle. In the last update, there were some nice quality of life features added to the game, but aside from a couple new heroes, not anything huge to shake the game up too much.

This upcoming update, which should hit within the next 24 hours, promises much more than that. Balance changes to heroes, a whole new game mode, and–of course–some more heroes to gush over. See below for more details:

Knights Chronicle guide - The best PvP characters

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 2nd, 2018

We’re continuing our pseudo-tier list for Knights Chronicle by listing our picks of the best heroes to have on your team in the Arena.

Knights Chronicle guide - Everything you need to know about the July 26 update

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 25th, 2018

It's only been about a month since Knights Chronicle released and we're about to see our third huge update. The 1.1 release brought us the top tier attacker Morrigan along with some much-requested moves to make the game friendlier for free players, and the update that dropped just a week later added things like Haspiel Assault and the Taiyo Advent dungeon.

This latest update isn't quite out at the time of this writing, but it promises quite a few more goodies for Knights Chronicle players. See below for what some of these things might be:

Knights Chronicle guide - The best PvE characters

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 23rd, 2018

Everyone loves a good tier list, but there aren’t any great ones out there for Knights Chronicle. This isn’t just because no one bothered to make one though. It’s actually because heroes in Knights Chronicle may be valuable in one aspect of the game when they aren’t in another.

In an effort to build some semblance of a quality tier list for Knights Chronicle, you’d have to break down top heroes for each aspect of the game as well as sort them by the kind of hero they are, which is exactly what this list (the first of many) sets out to do.

This list of heroes in Knights Chronicle ranks the top three characters of each type purely by how good they are in Advent and Multiplayer Dungeons (also known as PvE). In other words, don’t use this list to build your Arena team. Check out our picks for best PvE heroes below:

Knights Chronicle guide - Multiplayer dungeon guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 19th, 2018

We’ve talked quite a bit about building your best team for PvP in Knights Chronicle, but there always comes a time in the game where you need to turn to other players for help. Multiplayer dungeons can be some of the hardest missions in the entire game, but they don’t necessarily have to be.

You see, the reason why clearing bosses like Decain and even the lowly Flare can be so hard is that you have to depend on players who may or may not know what they’re doing. In order to be a good team player in Knights Chronicle generally, keep the following tips in mind and you’ll likely save yourself and others a lot of time and stamina.

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.

Knights Chronicle guide - How the town works, and why you should upgrade it

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 11th, 2018

There’s a lot of stuff going on in Knights Chronicle, and perhaps the most out of place element in it is its town management layer. Here, instead of training heroes or fighting monsters, you’re just upgrading buildings, most of which can help you earn or purchase new materials.

Knights Chronicle guide - The ultimate rune guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 3rd, 2018

On top of granting general stat boosts, runes can also be upgraded and equipped in sets to make your heroes even more powerful. See below for some handy things to keep in mind about runes.
