Crafting Guide

Vanguard ZERO: Best Common Cards to Craft Early Game

Quick Crafting Tips

   - C Rarity Cards = If you need more cards early game, just craft "Common Cards" because Crafting Stones are very common and easy to get.
   - TIP: Switch card view from "Owned" to "All" while building decks to craft Common cards that you don't have. Also Use the "magnifying glass" icon to filter all Common Cards if needed.

   - R Rarity Cards = Better get these Rare cards from Gacha draws since they are quite easy to get anyway. Craft only if you really need the card and have extra crafting materials to use.

   - RR and RRR Rarity Cards = "Double R" and "Triple R" cards would take time to craft or collect, so keep farming and save your crafting materials for later use. Refer below for tips on how to farm more crafting materials.

   - SP Cards = These shiny cards can be crafted if you have x4 copy of that card, but requires higher crafting materials than normal ones (this is optional though).

How To Farm Crafting Materials

Vanguard ZERO: Farming Crafting Materials

Character Fight Mode

   - Can be obtained as Drop Rewards (specific Crystals, Orbs and Pieces depending on each clan).
   - Crafting Stones can be used across all Clans.

   - NOTE: All crafting materials that isn't a Stone, only drops x1 each item (if you are lucky) per battle... so it's gonna take long to craft high rarity cards! One way to get rarer and higher number of crafting materials is by clearing missions in Character Fights (first time clear rewards).

   - Once you are done unlocking all difficulties and getting all first time rewards, start farming crafting materials. Choose 1 or 2 clans to focus on first, crafting cards is the only way to play certain clans if you can't get the cards you like from the Gacha.
   - One way to play this game is to focus on clans depending on the cards that you are able to pull from Gacha, then farm crafting materials to enhance that clan.

Double Drop Events!

(Also watch out for Double Drop events! Highly Recommended!)

Best Way To Use Gems

   - TIP: This is optional, but I would recommend using Gems to buy more Stamina, to farm more crafting materials from "Character Fights" that you are aiming for. Go VP farming (Rank Fights) to get Gacha Tickets instead.

   - Even better if you can hold your Gems (for Stamina) until a limited event is available where you need to farm certain items like tickets from "Character Fights" to participate in that event, or just use your Gems to buy Stamina during "double drop" events to get more crafting materials!

Recovery of Fight Challenges

   - NOTE: You can still farm "Very Hard" and "Hard" modes by selecting "Fight" or "Quick Fight" to open the option where you can spend Gems to recover all 5 Fight Challenges.

Farm Crafting Materials with Gems

Very Hard Difficulty

   - 100 Gems = For 75 Stamina, enough for 5 Fights.
   - 50 Gems = For recovering 5 Fight Challenges.
   - Estimated Average Drops = 6 RRR Gems; 6 RR Gems (per 5 Quick Fights during double drop events).

Hard Difficulty

   - 100 Gems = For 75 Stamina, enough for 5 Fights.
   - 50 Gems = For recovering 5 Fight Challenges.
   - Estimated Average Drops = RRR Gems; 6 R Gems (per 5 Quick Fights during double drop events).

Normal Difficulty

   - 100 Gems = For 75 Stamina, enough for 5 Fights.
   - Estimated Average Drops = 12 RR Gems (per 5 Quick Fights during double drop events).

Easy Difficulty

   - 200 Gems = For 150 Stamina, enough for 15 Fights.
   - Estimated Average Drops = 36 R Gems (per 15 Quick Fights during double drop events).

Crafting Cards During Double Drop Events

   - NOTE: Farming materials is luck based, and also depends on the materials you already have, farm what you need. The info below will assume that you have 0 materials.
   - TIP: If you'll farm materials during "x2 VP Events" as well, that would be a nice bonus!

Crafting 1 RRR Card

   - You'll need around 2,550 Gems to farm Very Hard Difficulty and get around 100 RRR Gems and 100 RR Gems.
   - You'll need around 900 Gems to farm Normal Difficulty and get around 100 RR Gems.
   - You'll need around 2,200~2,300 Gems to farm Easy Difficulty and get around 400 R Gems.

   - TOTAL GEMS USED = 5650~5750 Gems.
   - *If you think you can get that specific RRR card by using 50~60 packs, then use your Gems to draw, otherwise craft that card, especially if you only need few materials.
   - *If you are aiming for multiple RRR cards, drawing might be a good alternative though but still depends on luck, you might get at least 1 of them or none at all.
   - *However, if you are aiming for multiple RRR, RR and R cards using 60 packs, drawing and getting at least 1 RRR or 3 RR from your list is already good, even better if you are lucky to get more than that (best during banner/clan rate ups to get higher chance).

Crafting 1 RR Card

   - You'll need around 900 Gems to farm Normal Difficulty and get around 100 RR Gems.
   - You'll need around 1,100~1,200 Gems to farm Easy Difficulty and get around 200 R Gems.

   - TOTAL GEMS USED = 2,000~2,100 Gems.
   - *If you think you can get that specific RR card by using 20 packs, then use your Gems to draw, otherwise craft that card, especially if you only need few materials.

Crafting 1 R Card (Only If Needed)

   - You'll need around 600 Gems to farm Easy Difficulty and get around 100 R Gems.

   - TOTAL GEMS USED = 600 Gems.
   - *If you think you can get that specific R card by using 6 packs, then use your Gems to draw, otherwise craft that card, especially if you only need few materials.

Card Deconstruction

   - Automatic once you get your 5th identical card from Gacha, so draw cards as much as possible (this is the easiest way to farm crafting materials for your Rare and Common cards, if needed).
   - Keep drawing cards to farm crafting materials, save them to craft useful cards.

   - RRR = x30 Crystals;  RR = x25 Orbs;  R = x20 Pieces;  C = x15 Stones

Deconstructing SP Cards!

   - These shiny cards can be deconstructed to get more crafting materials (check card details then select the "Deconstruct" option). SP Cards can be obtained randomly from the Gacha as well.
Vanguard ZERO: Card Deconstruction
   - NOTE: Double check and make sure that you have x4 cards total (Normal and SP) before deconstructing SP cards to avoid mistakes, unless you don't need the card.
   - This is one good way to obtain more rarer crafting materials.

   - RRR = x50 Crystals;  RR = x50 Orbs;  R = x50 Pieces;  C = x50 Stones
   - Example: Deconstructing 2 Rare (R) SP Cards would give you 100 Pieces of crafting materials, enough to craft 1 R card.

   - NOTE: PR cards that can be obtained from Rank Fight's Season Ranking rewards can't be crafted or deconstructed.

Limited Time Clan Events

   - Play these Clan Events to unlock higher difficulties and grab more limited-time Crafting Materials for specific clans.
   - Complete Daily and Time-Limited Missions during this clan event to get more exclusive Crafting Materials and other freebies for that clan!

Example C Cards to Craft

   - These are Common cards used by most decks, and considered as safe choices, craft up to x4 if you like. Also follow the same pattern for other clans.

Royal Paladin

   - Little Sage, Marron (G1)
   - Knight of Silence, Gallatin (G2)
   - Craft other cards if you need them for your strategy, or to fulfill deck requirements.
