Magic Rush: Heroes Beginner's Guide -

   - Once you see this, check it out because it needs your attention.
   - Look for this "Red Dot" every after battle to check your progress, or to claim a reward.

   - Follow and complete your Quests while doing Campaigns to give you ideas on what to do next. No need to rush, just reach what you can with your current team, if you can't advance, stop and refer to the "Once You Hit A Wall" section below.
   - Complete to get various rewards.

Daily Activities
   - A must to do tasks to level up your Troop Lvl.
   - Complete what you can to get various rewards.
   - Have a Feast (Buffet 1 and 2): Check the given time and claim your Free Stamina.

Other Freebies

   - Monthly Sign-In Activity (Calendar):
   - Sign-in everyday to get awesome rewards, especially the free Hero of the month.

   - Mailbox (in-game):
   - Here you can claim your Login Rewards, Arena ranking rewards, Event giveaways, and other Freebies.

   - Wishing Pool - Gold Chests:
   - Do not waste your Gold Coins for x1 Gold Chests, just use your "free chances". Spend your Gold Coins into more useful options like upgrading skills.
   - At later levels, once you have excess Gold Coins, it is ok to spend them on "x10 Gold Chests" to get some free heroes (if lucky), gears (including purple), and Hero Soul Stones. Make sure you have a couple of millions though for upgrading skills.

   - Wishing Pool - Diamond Chests:
   - Your first Diamond Chest (not the free chance) draw has a high chance to reveal a nice Hero, so it's a good idea to spend your first 258 Diamonds for this one early game.
   - After the first one, just get the free chance Diamond Chests every after the cool-down timer (about 2 Days).

   - If you are a heavy or casual Diamond user, get the "Buy 10" Option to get a higher chance to obtain more Heroes.

   - Getting Free Diamonds Early Game (Android):
   - Play the game until you reach Troop Lvl 10, then bind your Google Play account. To check, go to your Avatar Icon > Account > Binding Account.
   - If done correctly, you should be able to claim the "Login to Google Play" quest reward!

Campaign Mode: Normal/Elite -

Continue the tutorial until you get all starting 5 or 6 Heroes, just reach what you can with your current team. Do this while following your Quests or Daily Activities.

Stages with 3 Stars
   - Getting 3 Stars will unlock the "Auto Fight" feature for Normal Battles, and the "Sweep" option.
   - Normal Battles: EXP is evenly shared to all Heroes who joined the battle.
   - Sweep Battles: No hero EXP, but you'll get EXP items that you can use to any Hero you choose.
   - Both Battle types will require Stamina. EXP and drop rates are almost the same.

Tower Defense: Bonus Stages
   - Complete to get more EXP Elixir potions and more Hero EXP from the Pool. Tap the Pool to collect the bonus EXP, must collect before 3 Days max.
   - Basic TD Tips:
   - Tap on the circles to deploy Heroes, but deployment and upgrading requires a number of points. Collect more Points to deploy more heroes while defending.
   - Move your Tanks near your DPS hitters, surround your tanks with lots of DPS hitters that you can.
   - Heroes placed as first hitters nearest to the enemy entrances can charge their Ulti fast! Pick your heroes and use your Ultimate wisely!

   - Look for floating objects around the map, tap on them to get some Points and other items. Some moving or animated objects can also unleash some attacks to help you out.
   - TD stages requires 0 Stamina, so experiment and have fun!

Once You Hit a Wall (Get Stuck!), Here's Some Tips To Do:

   - 1) Increase Troop Lvl
   - Troop Lvl is the most important aspect in the game. It will unlock new features and strengthen your Heroes by lifting up their Hero Lvl and Skill Lvl caps. It also increases your Max Stamina for more gameplay time.
   - Get Troop EXP from battles and Daily Activities completion rewards.

   - 2) Increase Hero Levels
   - 2nd most important aspect in the game because it lifts up the Lvl cap of skills, and will greatly increase skill damages.
   -You can also check the levels of your enemies by tapping on their portraits in the stage info screen, before the Hero selection screen.

   - If one of your Heroes is maxed, you might want to switch that Hero to one of your lower leveled Heroes to level him/her up too, especially when doing replays at lower stages. To effectively level up a new front line Hero, you might want to add another tank, healer, or just feed EXP potions.

   - Maybe some questions running through your mind:
   - "Are my starting 5 Heroes worth leveling?
   - "Are they strong late game?"
   - "Should I ignore my starting 5 Heroes and wait for better Heroes to level instead?"

   - Here are some tips to ease your mind:
   - Don't underestimate your starting 5 Heroes, most of them are ok early to late game PVP and/or PvE, and you still need them too to complete stages and to gather more heroes with ease early game.

   - AURAI: To make your PvE progress easier, always max her Ulti.

   - Don't just focus on 5 Heroes, you need a 2nd or 3rd Team too, to help you out in the Crystal Dungeon, Island Crusade (only Lvl 20+ Heroes can be used), and more.

   - Fights with special conditions: There are battles that requires more Physical or Magic Heroes to counter Physical or Magic Immunities.
   - Get all Heroes that you can, this way you can create teams that suits your gaming-style!

   - 3Upgrade Skills
   - Ultimate Skills can be activated when the Energy bar is full. It is filled when your Heroes attacks, gets attacked, or if they will do last hit kills for +300 Energy bonus.
   - Note: Energy and HP Regen only triggers between waves or battles.
   - Other skills activates automatically during battle.

   - Which Skills to Upgrade?
   - All of course to make your team strong, but which ones first? Focus on your main 5 Heroes, then work on the next ones.

   - Here's some tips:
   - Skills that can buff stats or heal the team.
   - AoE (Area of Effect) Skills that can do massive damages to all enemies are also great.
   - Massive single attacks, especially with high crit chance!
   - Disability skills like stun, upgrade them to keep their success chances high.
   - or any skill you think is good, the point is, there's nothing wrong if you are upgrading skills.

   - 4) Farm Runes and Advance Heroes
   - I'm sure you are wondering if which heroes to advance more? I'll say, all that you can, but focus on your main 5 Heroes first, then work on the next ones.

   - Green +: means a Rune is available for the Hero to equip, or item is ready to Synth.
   - Yellow +: means a Rune is available but the Hero's Lvl is too low to equip the item.
   - None +: means there are no available Rune for that Hero. Tap on your hero's Runes to check where to farm them, tap on the map or stage name again to automatically take you there, if it's accessible.

   - Advance your heroes to make them stronger (will add stats from gears) and to unlock new tier of skills. Quality levels are: White, Green/+1, Blue/+1/+2, Purple/+1/+2/+3/+4.

   - Equipments
   - Once the slots are unlocked, you can farm equipments from the Crystal Dungeon for your Heroes. You can activate your hero's equipment while in battle to get the bonus stats.
   - 5) Farm Hero Soul Stones
   - After Chapter 2-10: Elite Chapters will be Unlocked.

   - Farm Soul Stones to get more Heroes by completing a set of Soul Stones.
   - I recommend you farm them all, since they are only available to farm trice a day. This is also a nice way to spend some of your excess Stamina.

   - Elite Stages: When farming Soul Stones, the chance is just around 33%, so other players do this: Once they get 1 Soul Stone, stop farming on that stage, this is because most of the time, once you get the Soul Stone, it will never drop another.

   - Heroes to Farm First? Here's some tips:
   - Farm all Heroes that you don't have yet, yes others are somewhat harder to earn, but keep on going while you have the time (Note: the limit is only 3 times a day per stage). It's better to have them even if they turn out weak (might get a buff in the future).

   - Heroes with only 10 Soul Stones requirement are also good. Well, honestly, they might not make it into your top team but they are still useful for different purposes.

   - Evolving Heroes (+ Stars)
   - If you already have the Hero, Soul Stones will just be used as Evolution Materials, farm them if you have extra Stamina to use, but for now, focus first on getting more Heroes and upgrading your main Heroes' Lvl and Skills.

   - Optional: While farming Soul Stones for new heroes, you can also farm some Soul Stones that will give quick evolve to your 1 Star Heroes you might like.
   - Free LUFIA Soul Stones: Can be obtained from Quest Rewards early game.

The Best Way to Spend Diamonds? -

STAMINA! (Diamonds for Stamina)
   - Yes, it's the best way to:
   - get more Heroes by farming Soul Stones.
   - boost Troop or Hero Levels.
   - get more Gold for upgrading skills.
   - and to Advance Heroes by farming the runes needed.

   - Even if you can't play much everyday, at least buy the free 120 Stamina pack per day.

First Diamond Chest (Wishing Pool)
   - Your first draw (not the free chance) has a high chance to reveal a nice Hero, so it's a good idea to spend your first few Diamonds for this one early game.

Reset Elite Chances
   - Highly recommended for casual (VIP 2) or heavy Diamond users, to quickly farm Soul stones for their heroes or to simply collect more heroes.

The Diamond Chest "x10" Option (Wishing Pool)
   - Well, this is kinda hard for F2P gamers because the required Diamonds is somewhat high, it's better to spend Diamonds to Stamina and farm Soul Stones to get specific Heroes early on.
   - Just earn your excess Diamonds for this as you go on ("optional").

Golden Hand: Not Recommended, but if it is included on your Daily Activity, then do this only once a day to get the Troop Lvl EXP. Gold is a problem early game, but keep going until you unlock more features where you can collect lots of Gold.

The PVP Arena! -

   - A nice place to get Diamonds, Gold Coins, Arena Points for the Arena Exchange Shop, EXP items, and more.
   - Note: Only use Arena Points for Hero Soul Stones!

   - Fight teams with lower Team Power than yours to get a higher chance of winning. Free Diamonds will be rewarded depending on the difference of your highest rank to the next one.
   - The key is to form a team that works together. Mix, match, and experiment to find what suits your defensive and offensive playing style.

   - Check the Rules to see the rewards you can get with your current Rank.
   - Also check the reset time, and the time when they will finalize the rankings and send the Arena rewards.
   - Use the time and increase your rankings before they finalize the rankings, this way, you'll get better chance of getting more rewards.

Arena Heroes Ranking
   - Check the "Ranking" section to see what other players are using, observe and learn some Hero combinations and ideas here.
