Are you ready for battle!? Got enough skills, tricks, tactics, and knowledge about the mechanics of the game? If not, then here's a simple guide for beginners on how to improve your battle performance and increase your Grade Lvl in no time!

3 Characters Team Up Match!


Create a Party with Friends!
   - The best thing about creating a party is that, you are sure that you will not be teaming up with bots! Yes, if you go solo or play with a 2 player party, there is a slight chance that you will be playing with bots which is not good at all, unless your Grade Lvl is still low.

   - Follow other players by clicking on their avatar, this way, you can make team-ups much easier through invites.
   - Alternatively, you may also click on the CHAT BOX (not the chat icon) then go to the "Team-Up Invitation" tab to join other players that are looking for party.

Choosing Your Character
   - BarbarQ and Valvyrie are unlocked by default, and you have to unlock the others using Gems (highly recommended).
   - Both free units are excellent characters, so go ahead and master them according to your play style.

Equip Pets
   - Don't forget to bring your favorite pet too!
   - Equip pets with abilities that can help your character, feel free to try them all.

Battle Mechanics!

The Aim of the Game:
   - You have 6 minutes battle time and will end once the timer expires.
   - Eat mushrooms, level up, learn skills.
   - You or your teammate is Master Evil in the end of the battle.

Leveling Up During Battle
   - First of all, leveling up will noticeably increase your character's body shape, attacking range and HP, which can really help enhance your overall performance.
   - Note that some skills and pet skills will also get an increased range.
   - You may follow any of the methods below on how to gather mushrooms depending on your character, role, or play style.

Gather Mushrooms to Level Up
   - Gather them around or go and attack that giant mushroom (aka Bashroom) that pops up after a while.
   - This is much more ideal during the first few minutes of the battle, especially when other players are way ahead of your team, or if you want to level up quicker than others without fighting!
   - Be warned though because players are definitely aiming for this one too.

Steal Mushrooms to Level Up
   - Steal them from other players by defeating them or at least by assisting one of your team mates. During the first few minutes of the battle, you can also find bots (if available) that are easy to defeat for some quick level ups.
   - Bots will usually confront you but will just move around dodging your attacks, but be careful because some players are disguising their name and flag similar to those bots ~ lol.

   - The fastest way to earn mushrooms is to defeat the 1st place or Master Evil if you or your team can do it. If can't, go gather more mushroom and level up to at least Lvl 3, best at 5.
   - It is also possible to grab mushrooms from players that you didn't kill, and from your teammates (some would purposely kill one of their dying teammate to grab their mushrooms, a neat trick for clutch play too!).
   - Just by standing near your teammates, you can also receive some Exp once they defeat an opponent.

Level Down Penalty
   - Your character will lose some mushrooms once defeated, but his/her Lvl will not go below it's current one (Lvls 1 to 5 are safe), Lvl 6 or higher can still go down to 5 though.

   - Be aggressive and keep attacking your opponents to keep their lvls low, preferably done by berserkers.

The Master Evil!!!
   - The one with the most number of mushrooms will become Master Evil, increasing his/her level even further. The first player who can reach 300+ Mushrooms total and reach Lvl 5, will become the first Master Evil.

   - Rule of Thumb: If your teammate is the Master Evil, go and protect him/her. If you are the Master Evil, let your teammates help you.

   - If your team doesn't have a Master Evil, go and grab or steal more mushrooms. Use the Chat function in-game to call up your teammates or to coordinate attacks/strategies.

   - During team fights, if possible, also consider letting your top scorer grab all the mushrooms. Sometimes, this method is also perfect for clutch play and grab the win without defeating the Master Evil!

Knock Downs, How Does it Work?


Knock Down Effect
   - After knocking down an opponent to the ground, you and all other players can still land 1 attack!
   - After recovering from a knock down, the opponent will get a 3 seconds invincibility! So, every time you knock someone down, try to land an attack then quickly back off to avoid counter attacks!
   - Note that even if they will hit your shield, it won't work on them.

   - Exception: Momolko (Cat Lady) can instantly recover from a knock down status by shape-shifting to a cat, so watch her out.

   - TIP: Do not jump into an opponent, or group of enemies if they are about to recover from their knock down effect, a common newbie mistake.


What is a Lock Down?


Lock Down Effect
   - Lock Down happens if a character is continuously flinching from multiple attacks or combos. This can be done by attacking a target from different directions, preferably front and back.
   - It is also possible to solo lock down a target by using combos and skills (ex: Valvyrie's dash attacks, or by using simple Hook combos).
   - During a Lock Down, a character cannot use any Skills, Items, or even attack!

   - Once you are in this situation, the best thing to do is to try to escape, or use a block skill before it get's even worse.
   - You may also equip some pets that can counter this effect like: Ru Yi

   - TIP: Do not jump into a group of enemies alone, or if you think you can't survive their attacks. Play safe by using items (hit and runs), waiting for their HP to go lower, or when someone from their group got separated, go and kill fast!

Other Battle Tips!


Basic Defensive Technique: The Normal Attack
   - Yes, normal attacks can deflect bombs, kicks, jumps, and some strikes, so always spam them whenever possible, especially while escaping.

Hide in Bushes and Clouds
   - These are good advantageous areas to camp in and wait for enemies.

BarbarQ Level Up to Learn Skills!

Level Up to Learn Skills!


Skills Sets and Roles
   - Characters can equip 1 skill, and learn up to 4 more skills during battle.
   - Skills are randomly generated, so choose any skill that you think is best for your character and role.

   - Here's Some Example Roles:
   - Attacker/Berserker Role: Choose and equip any skills. Mix with any defense type passive skills if you are playing solo and/or doesn't have support. Going full berserker is also doable.
   - Support Role: Will probably equip "Drumstick" by default for healing support.
   - Blocker Carry Role: "Block" as main active skill (or learn from battle since it's common anyway). Usually learns some passive attack type skills for more damage.

   - Hybrid Role: Well it is really possible to mix and play all roles and skills, so go on and experiment.

Active Skills
   - Active Skills will only use 1 slot, but they can be combined into new skills!
   - Examples:
   - Break Kick, Break Leap and Double Break (great for breaking shields, but requires more Energy. Break Leap is an AoE skill and can chase targets, so that alone is good enough).
   - Whirlwind, Hook Axe and Tornado (high DPS once you are able to land the first hit!).
   - Drumstick , SPD Spirits, and Shock Liquor (very OP if you have a pro support, especially those Shocks!).
   - Block, Fire Shield, and Charging Shield (all 3 becomes a Charging Fire Shield, but Block alone is quite decent).
   - Ice Ring: No available combinations.

Passive Skills
   - Skills that are always on once learned, and can be upgraded by learning the same skill.

   - There are also some Passive Skills that can be enhanced up to Lvl 5 during battle by learning their duplicates 4 times in a row (must have 1 equipped) = "Protection Ball", "Thorns", "HP Steal", "Energy Steal", and "Magnet".
   - For the skills above, if you are able to reach Lvl 5, you can also get a cool avatar for your achievement. It's really hard though, but good luck!

   - Other Passive Skills: "Bloodlust", "Energy Increase", and "Speed Boost".

Pick Up and Use Items!


As much as possible, always carry an item with you. These items can really help you survive, defeat opponents, or escape from them.

Sharing Gems is the easiest way to get free Gems in BarbarQ battle arena mobile game, but it is really a let down if you can't even share or receive your Gems due to errors!

To help you solve these problems, here are some solutions that you might want to try. These worked for me, so I hope I can help you guys too! ^^
BarbarQ: Facebook is not Installed Problem or No Gems After Sharing

Share and Receive Gems!

Sharing Rules:
   - Each time you share, you'll get 10 Gems.
   - You can get the rewards once in every 10 minutes at most (monthly card will shorten the interval to 5 minutes.)
   - You can get at most 50 Gems every day through sharing.
   - The sharing at the end of a battle applies to these rules too.

FAQ: Facebook is Not Installed!?

Solution: Re-install Facebook App (Fixed!)
   - I had this problem before, and I was able to fix it by re-installing my Facebook App (not the lite version).
   - Yes, I have an existing Facebook App (updated), but unfortunately, the game won't recognize it because it doesn't have the "required" function that will let the game share a post to Facebook.
   - After re-installing, make sure that you log-in using your BarbarQ linked account.

   - Go to your BarbarQ game and try sharing, it should open a new window where you can now post BarbarQ events to your Timeline. After sharing (click post), click back then you should be able to instantly receive your 10 Gems. Congrats! ^^

Optional Tips for Early Game:


Login with Facebook

Daily Chests
   - Can be collected while playing, use your Mini-Map to help you find them. Daily chests will refresh at server reset time.

Eggs
   - Can only gather 1 Egg per run, then use the "Incubate " option to hatch them. Note that your first Egg can be skipped for free (gives a random pet) and it could be a great opportunity to get a useful pet by doing re-rolls or resets (optional method).
   - Would recommend for starters:
   - Health Pet = Any, but kinda situational though.
   - Defense Pet = Health Drain -% or Any Mine Defense (nice for Large dragons).
   - Score Pet = Any, but would prefer XP+% and Coins+%.
   - Fire Pet = Any, but would prefer Fire Duration.
   - Pets with icons on top of their portrait = Rare and Special pets, some of them are really strong, but most are just situational. Good luck!

Flying Pigs
   - Grab them to get 1 free Gem. Appears from usual areas but still at random.

Golden Preys, Coins, Pots, and More
   - Eat golden-colored preys to earn Coins.
   - Big Golden coins and Pots gives bonus Coins, grab them too whenever you have the chance.

   - You may watch a video ad to reduce the cooldown timer by 15 minutes (optional). The first one has a short cool-down, so use this method to keep raking in fast Coins.
   - You may skip the current Mission by using the "Next" option if you find it a bit difficult to complete (ex: "Collect 2 Eggs" but you already have 3 of them in line).
   - Mission rewards will increase depending on your unlocked dragons.

Survive For as Long as You Can!


Health Bars
   - This is pretty important because the longer your dragon's Health bar is, the better.
   - By default, bigger dragons will always get higher Health and Boost ratings, so level up and max your dragons to unlock the next tier of dragons.
   - Eating prey refills your Health (Note that, those big giants or similar creatures can recover most of your health when successfully defeated). Avoid starvation to extend your run.
   - Activating Fire Rush can also refill your dragon's Health bar.
   - Special Powers from Pets or Costumes (like Health+% or Health Drain -%) can also enhance your dragon's overall health.

Getting High Scores and Leveling Up Your Dragons
   - The fastest way is to rake lots of Points per run, refer below for more info.
   - Score Points varies per creature and items. The stronger and rarer they are, the better.
   - Tip: Eat a whole flock to gain a Score bonus!

Max Your Dragons To Unlock Better Dragons!
   - Higher Tiers will get higher Health and Energy Boost stats, can equip more pets, and will get higher Multiplier bonus during Fire Rush.
   - Other bonuses also include: Can eat more types of preys with stronger attack or chomping power. Has longer Fire Rush duration, and more.
   - Collect more dragons to unlock new areas.

Activate Fire Rush and Mega Fire Rush!
   - If you want to maximize your Points and Coins gain per run, this is an excellent way to do it.
   - You get Mega Fire Rush after every 8 Fire Rush (Note that this is accumulative and carries over to the next run, check Fire icons below the bar). Plan ahead to help you complete all points related missions.
Activate Fire Rush and Mega Fire Rush!
   - Fire Rush Bonus Effects: Golden Creatures, Invincibility, and Infinite  Boost.
   - Mega Fire Rush Bonus Effects: One Hit Kill!, Can Eat All!, Golden Creatures, Invincibility, and Infinite  Boost.

What Are Multipliers?
   - Multipliers will greatly affect your Points gain per run, and can be increased by eating preys in quick succession. Be careful though, because Multipliers will get broken if you didn't let your dragon eat for a while, or if your dragon gets hit or damaged.
   - Keep your multiplier high to get Fire Rush quickly!

   - Multipliers can be easily increased by triggering Mega/Fire Rush, and HUNGRY Mode because your Dragon can get a temporary invincibility!
   - Tip: Sometimes, it is best to trigger Fire Rush first by eating flocks of birds before entering dangerous areas that can easily break your multiplier.

Collect HUNGRY Letters to activate HUNGRY MODE!
   - Can be collected while playing, use your Mini-Map to help you find them.
Collect HUNGRY Letters to activate HUNGRY MODE!
   - HUNGRY Mode Bonus Effects: Gets Bigger, Can eat almost all!, Invincibility, and Infinite Boost.
   - The best combo is to trigger HUNGRY MODE and MEGA Fire Rush at the same time! You'll get a big dragon with very wide fire range that can melt everything on it's path.
   - It is also really cool if you can pull this off right before your dragon is about to die due to passive Health Drain over-time.
   - Letters will re-spawn after activating HUNGRY mode. Go and collect them all again!

Things to Avoid
   - Simply avoid creatures or items that can hurt your current dragon, but if you really need to, then minimize the damage.
   - Boosting helps to free your dragon from an enemy attack.
   - Also, once you are able to survive long, some bad ass dragons, creatures and objects will start to appear, avoid them by flying low near the ground or by using Boost to fly away from them. This is a big problem for smaller dragons, but will get easier once you are able to unlock bigger dragons.

   - Tip: Those creatures and objects that you can't normally eat like Ghosts and Mines can really give you nice Points, go for them if you are able to trigger Mega Fire Rush.

Spending Your Hard Earned Resources!


Best Ways To Use Coins
   - Use to Unlock New Dragons:
   - For early game, only spend your Coins for unlocking new dragons. Ignore those costume upgrades for now.

Best Ways To Use Gems
   - Just earn them for now for future updates or events like limited Eggs and Pets. You can really get powerful pets with insane powers from these events so watch out!
Spending Your Hard Earned Resources!
Buy Costumes with Coins and/or Gems
   - Once you are able to unlock higher tiers late game, you might want to buy some costumes for your favorite dragons. Use them to enhance your dragons with special powers that can help complete some missions or to achieve higher scores.

Eggs and Pets


Pets are really handy and can help enhance your dragon's survivability or effectiveness. Choose any pet you like according to what you need like for completing certain missions, for survivability, speed, or for getting high scores.

Pet Rarity
   - Pets with icons on top of their portrait are considered rare and special.

Orange Eggs
   - Can be found in-game, up to one per run. After some incubation time, they will reward you with Pets for your dragons!

Purple Eggs
   - Can only be purchased with Gems, but they are instantly opened!
   - Would only recommend during limited events where you can get powerful Pets (still optional though).

Golden Egg Fragments
   - Obtained by getting duplicate rewards when opening Eggs.
   - Once you collect enough (50 Pieces), you will be rewarded with a Golden Egg!
   - Note: For rare pets, you will be able to collect at least 3 Egg Fragments.

Golden Eggs
   - The only way to unlock Special Pets!
   - You can check Pets that can only be unlocked from Golden Eggs under the Special category.

Limited Event Eggs!
   - Only available during a specific time of the year, example: Halloween and Christmas Events.

Global Events


These are limited events that can net you lots of rewards or limited prizes like pets from limited event Eggs. Check and follow their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram online to get informed about upcoming events before anyone else! Good Luck! ^^

Gems Frontier: How To Play Guide, FAQs, Tips and Strategy Guide


Gems Frontier is a fast paced Match-3 strategy puzzle mobile game presented by Cloudcade, Inc. Available from the App Store and Google Play.

Collect and upgrade legendary heroes, plan and compose your ultimate battle squad and trigger deadly leader and minion skills to climb the rankings through thrilling, addictive and fast-paced matches.

About The Game:

   - Each team is composed of 1 Leader and 3 Minions of each faction (Fire, Earth and Water Elements).
   - The objective of the game is to defeat the opponent's Leader by diminishing it's Health (HP).
Gems Frontier: How To Play Guide, FAQs, Tips and Strategy Guide

Best Leader to Choose?

   - Any of the three starter Leaders, but would recommend Blizzard, mainly because his freeze skill will let you chain combos while the enemy is frozen for 5 seconds! Plus, most of the time you'll be up against AI enemies anyway so the other 2 won't really help much unless they get upgrades.

Best Minions to Choose?

   - This depends on your Leader and playing style but here's some recommendations for early game:

   - Fallen Angel: Damage vs all minions, useful for clearing them out early on to open up chances for direct damages vs the enemy Leader. Works well with Vanquisher.
   - Wood Golem or Lich: Wood Golem for defensive type, Lich for offensive type. Works well with Serenity.
   - Mist: Mainly for direct damage, useful during the latter part of battle when all enemy minions are dead. Works well with Blizzard.

Other Notable Minions
   - The Baron: Creates a random combo jewel on the board which is really cool, but his casting time is just too long!
   - Ranger: Decent green minion that can nuke Earth, use if you don't have any of the two above.
   - Depth Knight: Nice alternative minion nuker, especially with upgrades.
   - Ice Queen: She is quite good but kinda situational, and needs timing.

*These teams should be able to help you reach at least 1800 Trophies, more once your Leader gets some upgrades. Also note that player skill is also very important, refer below for more info.

Jewels

   - There are five types of jewels. Matching 3 or more jewels generate the following effect:

Attack Jewels
   - Your Leader will be given a chance to attack and decrease the opponent's Leader HP.
Health Jewels
   - Heals the user's Leader HP (effect increases as you Lvl Up).
Fire Jewels
   - Fire Minion attacks the opponent's Earth Minion.
Earth Jewels
   - Earth Minion attacks the opponent's Water Minion.
Water Jewels
   - Water Minion attacks the opponent's Fire Minion.

Targeting

   - The Leader always attacks opponent's Leader.
   - Each minion attacks their respective counter elements, but if the target minion is dead, the attack is delivered to the opponent's leader.
Gems Frontier - Minion Targeting
   - The dead minion (becomes a ghost) does not proc the special skill, but the ghost can still attack at 50% of normal attack.

Jewel Combos

   - Match more than 3 jewels to create combos.
   - To make the following combos effective, these need to be matched with the respective tiles.
Gems Frontier - Combo List #1
Gems Frontier - Combo List #2

Mana Agility

   - Matching Fire, Earth, and Water jewels also increases the Mana of respective heroes.
   - Once Mana is full, it procs the special skill of that Hero.
   - Each Hero has different Mana agility: 1 Mana = 5 Jewels Match.

How To Win Battles?

   - Winning battles depends on your team composition, upgrades, and player skill which is very important.

Here's Some Tips To Do While Battling:


   - Break Gems As Much As You Can!
   - The fastest way to break gems is to create combos, so aim for at least 4 gems if you get the chance. This is where Player Skill comes into play.
   - This is what you should be scouting on too during the countdown timer from the start.

   - Prioritize Your Leader's Gems!
   - This is also important as it can give you a huge advantage if you can fire their skill asap. Plus, it would also trigger your minion's skill that has similar gem color. Yep, it's like shooting 2 birds with one stone.
   - At higher difficulty, you might need to fire 2 of your Leader's skill to defeat AI enemies.

   - Move Fast!
   - Yes, you need to act and move any gem every time you have the chance, any lags in-between will cost you a lot, especially when battling against AI at higher difficulty.
   - Tip: To avoid this, you can trigger a break from the left side of the board, then quickly focus your attention on the right side of the board and look for another combo or break.

Upgrading Heroes Lvl

   - A hero can be upgraded for superior powers. In order to upgrade a hero you must unlock multiple cards of the same hero.
   - Heroes can be earned from chests (recommended for F2Ps) or can be purchased from shop on availability (optional).

Tips For Upgrading Heroes:
   - Upgrade all of your Heroes to gain EXP points and Lvl up your own Lvl.
   - Leveling Up will unlock certain features or increase some Jewels effect (ex: Health Jewel's healing amount).
   - You can also gather EXP points from after battle rewards, but only limited to a number of wins. I believe this resets at server time (exact time is uncertain).

Best Way To Use Gold

   - Use your Gold to upgrade them all, but you need to choose which heroes to upgrade beyond 1000 Gold.
   - Only use your Gold for upgrading your Leader and Heroes.
   - Your main Leader will require far greater Gold to upgrade so, save up at least 5,000 Gold for their first upgrade.
   - Gold can also be obtained from free chests, battle reward chests and guild chests.

Best Way To Use Gems

   - Earn and exchange them for Gold, you need lots of this for upgrading!
   - You can also gather some Gold from after battle rewards, but only limited to a number of wins. I believe this resets at server time (exact time is uncertain).

   - Gems can be obtained from free chests, battle reward chests and guild chests.
   - You may also login using your Facebook account to receive 50 Gems from the start of the game.

Chests

   - Chests are great way to earn heroes and Gold. You can earn chests by winning the combats.
   - Free Chests are also available at regular intervals.
   - For exclusive rewards you can also buy chests from the store (optional).

Star Chests
   - Star chest is available after 12 hours. Once available you have to win 10 combats to earn the chest.

Diamond Chest (24H)
   - Contains: Gold; Gems; Reward Cards (Guaranteed Epix x12, Rare x72)

Gold Chest (12H)
   - Contains: Gold; Gems;  Reward Cards (Guaranteed Epix x2, Rare x12)

Silver Chest (8H)
   - Contains: Gold; Gems;  Reward Cards (Guaranteed Rare x1)

Wooden Chest (3H)
   - Contains: Gold; Gems;  Reward Cards

*Note that the number of Gold, Gems, and Reward Cards that you can get from the above chests depends on what Arena Lvl you got them. The higher, the better the rewards.

Trophies and Leaderboard

   - You earn or lose trophies based on the battle result. The trophy count is based on the opponent's strength e.g. if the opponent is strong you will collect more trophies than defeating a weak opponent and vise versa.

   - Leaderboards are based on trophies. Leaderboards are reset after a specific time.
