Most of the new users have the same mistake. They use their own Heroic Summon Scroll to complete the Daily Quests.
After you have a full team of 5 Heroes, do not use your Heroic Summon Scroll for the Daily Quests.
Hence, you should only complete all of the Daily Quests when you have a free Heroic Summon Scroll (every 2 days).
It is very crucial to mention that saving Heroic Summon Scrolls is extremely important for the Heroic Summon Events. Saving your items for Events in Idle Heroes is always the ultimate goal of almost all players.
When you don’t have the free Heroic Summon Scroll, do not complete the Heroic Summon Quest and the Casino Quest. Because:
- No Strategy = 10x Gems in profit.
- Strategy = 40x + 2x = 100x in profit.
The Importance of Gold
It’s very hard to stress this enough. You just need to remember:
DO NOT WASTE YOUR GOLD.
Gold is used a lot, in high quantity, for upgrading Guide Techs, Stones, Pets and leveling up your Heroes from the mid game.
Wasting your Gold at the early game is a huge mistake. I have seen a lot of players getting lots of struggles in the mid game because of not having enough Gold.
Because of that:
- Buy only Arena Tickets and 3 + 4 Hero Shards in the Marketplace using Gold.
- Forge only the cheapest items for the Blacksmith Quest. Do not upgrade unnecessary items. Forging high level items wastes you tons of Gold.
- Think twice before leveling up your Heroes. You don’t need to levelup them all real quick.
- Do not upgrade the Stone of a Hero higher than Jade Stones If you will not go with him/her to the mid/end game. (The ones that don’t have the 10 form).
Events (The Most Important Part)
Growth in Idle Heroes is all about Events.
Everything about the Evens can be read at here.
I will just be mentioning some of the mistakes new players usually do while playing Idle Heroes!
Do Not Do These Once You’ve Had A Decent Team Of 5 Heroes.
- Spending Prophet Orbs, Heroic Scrolls, Casino Chips and Hero Shards whenever you get them.
- Using a small amount of items during the Events to get the small prizes.
- Using wrong items to complete Events. For example, using Heroic Scrolls for completing Miracle is completely a fail.
- Spending the hard-earned items on Events which don’t give you the prizes you need. For example, If you don’t need that Valentino, don’t spend 400 Heroic Summon Scrolls in the Heroic Summon Event.
- Fusing Heroes when there is no prize left for you in the Fusion Event.
- Using Hero Shards outside the Heroic Miracle Event.
- Fusing Dark and Light Heroes outside of the Heroic Miracle Event.
- Completing 6 and 7 Quests when not having enough to get the prizes.
The best way to have a great growth is to save all of the event items properly:
Using the Event items randomly while playing definitely causes a huge loss to your overall progression. It’s better to skip the Events If you can’t get a decent prize.
Being patient is the key.
Also, take a look at this guide to see all of the mistakes people usually do at the beginning…
I will not make a full list of Heroes here. Instead, new players should take a look at the Heroes page and do some researches.
I recommend taking a look at Heroes that have the 10 form and see if they have a huge difference between the 10 and 9 form. They should be in your team at the mid-late game. Doing your own researches is a very fun part of playing Idle Heroes.
Most 10 heroes have additional ability on their active skills after upgrading.
There are a few Heroes which are good in multiple game modes (Marauders, Guild Bosses, Aspen, PvP,…) like Vesa, Valkyrie, Karim, Sigmund etc.
There are a few ways to get the best heroes in Idle Heroes:
- Event Rewards. Yes, event again. I strongly recommend you guys take a look at the event guide at here.
- Heroic Summon Scrolls.
- Prophet Orbs,
- Prophet Branches.
In most cases, Hero Shards do not give great Heroes in the top tiers.
By making the most of Heroic Scrolls and Prophet Orbs, you will get the best Heroes. Only use them during the Events.
3 Kinds Of Heroes
Group 1: 5 Heroes which are upgrade-able to 10!
These Heroes can only be summoned in the 5 form, meaning it’s hard to get them, meaning they are naturally stronger.
They are obviously the best Heroes. They should be in your end-game team.
All of the other heroes are basically the fodders for them.
When upgrading your Heroes, try not to use them as fodder.
Group 2: 4 Heroes which are upgrade-able to 9!
They are quite nice, especially during the early game.
Because their first form is 4, it is very easy to obtain them, helping you upgrade them to 6 and 9 very fast.
When we want to upgrade a Hero to 10, we need to sacrifice a 9 Hero. Thus, using Heroes in the Group 2 for this job is ideal. You should keep this in mind while playing the game.
Aleria and Norma are maybe the only worthwhile Heroes in this group, or maybe also Sierra if you like boobs.
Group 3: 4 Heroes which are upgrade-able to only 5!
All of these Heroes are absolute garbage. However, they are very useful at being fodders.
They are also the main sources when you want to get some luck by using Prophet Branches to replace them.
Remember this: Most of the 5 heroes are roughly the same so you don’t need to ask for recommendations If your team are full of 5 Heroes.
If you upgrade a Group-3 Hero to level 100, it’s fine tho, you can sacrifice it later when upgrading the better ones to 6.
Just don’t waste your resources on Treasure Stones of these Heroes and you will be fine.
Do not forget that there are lots of stores in the game where you can buy 5 Heroes but the only worthwhile ones are Altar Shop and Wishing Fountain (Casino) Shop.
Only buy ones which are in the Group 1 and only buy them If you already have a copy of them. Having only 1 copy of them doesn’t make any scene at all.
Dark & Light Heroes
Dark and Light Heroes are extremely hard to get and upgrade. Thus, do not upgrade any of them past 6 until you have enough copies for 10+.
Any of the Group 1 Dark/Light Heroes are excellent for any team. They are born to be Legends.
Sorry but I have to mention this once again.
Do not upgrade the Stones past Green level If you are not going to upgrade them to 10.
After Green stones, upgrading them costs a lot of resources, making it a huge loss to your overall progression.
You can reset your Tavern quests. It costs 10 Gems per quest for every reroll.
In general, it is ideal to reroll your Tavern Quests every day.
For new players, I strongly recommend following these tips:
- Do any quest that gives over 20 Gems in value (1x, 2x, etc).
- Do any quest that gives 15+ .
- Do all 5, 6 and 7 Quests.
- Re-roll the others and repeat until you have 1 quest left.
The idea here is to keep a decent amount of Gems to reroll quests every day. Most of the time, you will get profits so don’t hesitate to spend your Gems here.
Reroll until you have 2 Quests left. At here, see whether you are positive or negative in Gems. If you are positive, keep rerolling. Otherwise, take the Quests left.
Although you can get a decent amount of event items from Quests every day, consider not doing reroll If you have better deals from Gem Boxes, Aspen Dungeon or random Market offers in that day.
Last but not least, save 6 and 7 Quests for the Tavern Event.
Always save Prophet Orbs and never use them until the Event.
Never use a 4 for the reroll. Always replace Group 3 5 Heroes for the Group 1 5 Heroes.
Getting 5 Heroes from the Dark/Light house is extremely hard. It’s a lot better to spend Orbs on the other houses. Forest and Abyss give the best results as they have most of the best Heroes.
If you have enough 80 for the Event, consider spend a small part of them on the other houses besides Forest and Abyss. That will help you a lot in the next Miracle events.
It is recommended to save your Gems at first for the Treasure Box Event. Only spend a little of Gems for shopping until you reach at least 10k Gems.
The best thing you should buy before you have 10k Gems is the 5x = 2250 Gems deal in Aspen.
|Must Buys||Must Buys (When You Have Over 10k Gems)||Should Buys|
|5x = 300K||8x = 240||3 Hero = 300K|
|8x = 1,000||4 Hero = 1500K|
|1x = 500||500 = 1000K|
Most of the times, there are better deals than these in the Aspen Dungeon. Always spend your money in Aspen first, before shopping in the Marketplace. For more details about what to buy in Aspen, take a look at this guide.
Always complete your Event Raids every day.
After level 100, it is totally worth it to buy the extra battles for extra Hero shards.
Your 3 Shards from Event Raids will be the main source of Soul Stone Shards in the Altar. Soul Stone Shards can be used to purchase very rare Heroes in the Altar shop and the Heroes Exchange event, located at the top right of the Altar screen.
During the Heroic Summon Events, you will have to destroy tons of 3 to get enough Hero spaces. From the mid game, after completing the Heroic Summon Event, you will have enough Soul Stone Shards for buying a rare Hero in the Altar Shop.
It’s not worth it to sacrifice 4/5 Heroes. It’s better to save them for the other Events.
Refreshing the Altar Shop costs 5K. Only do this If you want to buy a Hero you already bought before. Most of the time, it’s not worth to do this.
Wishing Fountain (Casino/Super Casino)
The main places to get Wishing Coins or Casino Chips are Marketplace, Aspen Dungeon and Tavern. If you are level 2+ VIP, you will get some Chips every day.
During the Casino event, aim for the max Casino prizes and Dark/Light Shards on the wheel before spinning it.
It’s recommended to use only 1 Super Wishing Coin (Super Chip) for each spin instead of 10 at once because there are times you get the Heroes right at the first spins and the rest Super Chips will become a waste.
- Your loots and EXP will not increase after 8 hours so always try to collect them every 8 hours.
- The power of your team doesn’t affect the farming speed in Campaigns.
- For every 5 campaign levels, the last one always drops Hero Shards of a faction. If you don’t care about getting just a little bit more EXP (after level 100), having your team farming in those campaigns is great. In a long run, this will give you a lot of .
Only forge 3 cheapest gears every day for the Daily Quest and that’s all.
This is where most players waste hundreds of millions of Gold at the early game.
Forging gears in Blacksmith is exponentially worse.
Do not upgrade your gears. Don’t do that!
You will lose tons of Gold and at the end of the days you will want to sell all of those forged gears.
If you follow all of the tips in this guide, you will get a lot of top gears from Event prizes. You will also get some decent sets from the Tower of Oblivion as well.
In the end, you will want to upgrade tons of 3-4 Orange Sets to get the 6 Orange Set but trust me, it is not significantly better but you will waste a lot of Gold.
Just be patient and you will get lots of great sets from Events.
Read this first: The Best Tips To Win Brave Trial.
This is a perfect place to get the Chaos Stones for your Pets and it’s the only thing you want to buy until you max out your first Pet.
During the early game, you can use this trick to clear out the Brave Trial with ease: Only level up your Norma past 40 and keep the others at 40. A level 100 Norma can help you clear the whole Brave Trial with easy for tons of Dragon Scales.
Choosing the right Pet is extremely important. This could make your game, or break it. This is even more important during the early game.
Leveling up your Monsters/Pets costs a lot of Gold and this is one of the main reason not to waste your Gold.
Here is a small comparison of the best Pets right now for you:
Assuming they are all maxed.
|Best for||PvE||PvP +PvE||PvP||PvP +PvE||PvP|
Buffs Attack, Block, Armor and Speed.
Grants Energy, Skill Damage and Precision.
Grants Holy Damage, Crit and Crit Damage.
Buffs Skill Damage, Speed and Block.
Grants Crit Damage, Armor and Precision.
|Comment||No CC||Potentially being summoned more than the others||Most popular Pet at lower-level PVPs||No CC. Seems good for almost all things||Decent for Crit Team|
For more details, take a look at the Monsters/Pets page!
In short, for new players, Wolf > Fox > Snake > Deer.
Read this for more details: Aspen Dungeon Guide: Best Heroes and Tips for Aspen
In short, Aspen Dungeon has 5 stages in total: Easy → Normal → Difficult → Nightmare → Hell.
Each level has 100 waves of Monsters and you have to defeat all of them to get to the next stage.
In each fight, 1 of your Hero will fight against 1 to 4 enemies at once. After the fight, HP and Energy will not be restored. This makes Heroes with self-healing very good in this game mode.
Norma is the perfect choice for new players. She is enough to get you to Normal stage. About the others, take a look at the guide above.
About buying items in Aspen
- The Handsome Boy: Buy everything in Gold except (optional).
- The Baroness Lady: Buy everything except Hero Shards and Heroic Summon Scrolls.
- The Old Lady: Buy everything except Hero Shards. Buying Heroic Summon Scrolls here is optional since you can get the same discount in the Marketplace.
Guide is an extremely important part of the game.
There is a special currency for spending in Guide, it’s the Guild Coins. Guild Coins can be used for shopping or for Tech building. Guild Coins can be earned by doing check-in every day, raiding Guild Bosses, doing Guild Wars and dong Mill Quests.
In most case, only use Guild Coins for upgrading Techs. You should never use them to buy anything in the Store.
By upgrading the Techs in Guild, your Heroes stats will be significantly increased a lot. The Techs buff your Heroes everywhere in the game and will not be removed even when you leave the Clan. They are permanent.
Tech is one of the most important things you should pay attention to while playing Idle Heroes.
Each class (Priest,Warrior,Ranger,Mage andAssassin) has its own Tech tree. Upgrade the first tech of a class to at least 10 to unlock the next one.
Normally, focus on the tech tree of the class your team has the most. For example, If your team has 3 Mage, 1 Warrior, 1 Assassin and 1 Priest, focus on the Mage Techs first.
If you have Vesa (or a Top Tier Hero for Aspen), upgrading the Priest Techs is a must because she can help you get much further in Aspen, also she can easily carry your team.
Generally, I recommend upgrading the Tech trees till the Speed node and then max out the first two nodes. Then, focus on Speed.
The last two nodes are the most expensive however they significantly impact the power of your team. Upgrading them is totally worth it.
No worries If you mess up a tree, you can reset it the first time for free.
