    New player looking for tips

    Hi all,
    I started playing LotB a few days ago and I'm here to find some help in planning my progression.

    1) First of all I have to decide which character i should grow.
    I have for Eddie :
    Eddie
    Wicker Man
    Mummy
    Carriage Rider.

    For other I am using and growing:
    Sentinel Harpy (4*)
    Warrior Possessed Rockets (3*)
    Sentinel Dog of War (3*)
    Pharaoh Water Spirit (2*)

    I have at 3* but not using
    Sentinel Undead Allied Soldier
    Warrior desert Warrior
    Magus Newborn of Light
    Gun Undead Allied Soldier

    Then the rest at 1 or 2 * that i think are not so good. What i using is ok, there is something I could change?


    2) Multiple copies of a character are useful in some way or can i sacrifice them? I read different things around

    3)How i should spend Badges and ironite? For badges i should wait for gun/assassin rare soul or having few character should buy some rare soul? And for ironite I should spend on talisma pack as I read or even here buy rare mega-pack?


    Sorry for the wall of text, I hope someone will help me to advance in this game.
    Thank you

    Hello and welcome.

    Don't know where you are in the game.

    But from the toons you mentioned I'd personally go with Harpy for skill shards. (btw, if not sure what you'll do with skill shards, save them, they are the rarest item in the game).

    cheers

    Welcome from my side too. Would say the same as G. Just look through forums, there are many helpful threads. Maybe you start here

    Welcome to the forums Xamyr!
    It would indeed help if you told us where you are in the game. Considering you don't have Soldier Eddie I presume you've somewhere between the start of Kingdom of the Sands - midway Battlefield?

    In terms of characters to use, Carriage Rider Eddie has a great skillset even if his damage has fallen a bit since the game came out. Eddie (aka Holy Smoke Eddie) is great from the bench with his past skills though if you really need something dead.

    In terms of toons, the Sentinel Harpy does really great damage and is probably the only thing worth using Skill Shards on that you have (you can also wait till you're further in the game; I didn't touch my Skill Shards until I reached the final boss of Underworld Madness). The Gunner Undead Allied Soldier is also really nice. He has a great heal that gives you a shield! This is a great way to turn around your fortunes in battle. His small Extra Turn chance is also nice.

    When I started out I spent all my Ironite on Rare Soul 10-packs. This is a good way to kickstart your collection and you should get at least one 4* character (or 5* if lucky) out of each pack if you're not especially unlucky. I've never bought a Talisman pack. That said, every few months Nodding Frog comes with special event souls, which are also a reasonable buy, so saving Ironite till those events is also a solid option.

    In terms of badges, Skill Shards are your safest option, but Warrior/Magus/Sentinel Souls aren't too bad in terms of price if you really really want a specific character. I find Rare Gunner/Assassin Souls too expensive to buy a lot.

    Oh, and I don't really keep duplicates of characters, except for Sacrifice.

    Thank you for answering.
    Yes I am halfway in the normal battlefield world.
    So I understand I have to use Carriage Eddie, Eddie, harpy and gunner undead soldier but that mean I should level ed evolve them at maximum?

    I would recommend reading the guides and tip in the forum threads. Get some troopers with a powerful Eddie or toon to help you complete missions. (I am metalking-3386) and in the game try to complete the challenges. In the challenges are some daily goals as well, which will earn sands of time, ironite and arena sands.
    Only missing: Mystic, King Edward, Piece of mind, Benjamin Breeg, Cyborg, Alexander, Coalgiver, Beast Eddie. Also: Eda, Astra, Witch Doctor, magus lilith, sentinel lillith, warrior lillith, krampus, the beast, Aset, Set, Horus.

    Hi and welcome.

    From my early experience I used Carriage Rider Eddie a lot so he is worth some investment. Once you get Soldier look to use him a lot as well (think he is the end win on Battlefield map). Sentinal Harpy is a good bet too so keep with her and invest in her.

    All of your characters have some merits to be honest - it depends on how you play. I was very defensive for a long time and then went with an all Warrior team once I had a few key characters with decent passive skills (like Warrior Rocket Dog and Hellhound or Warrior Troll).

    The key to learn real quick at the beginning is to invest in the correct Talisman for the characters you want to focus on as getting these right helps a lot early on - it took me too long to figure that out and I was not on here at the time so was a little clueless early on (and still am some would say!!)

    The forum is a good place for advice to ask any questions and you will usually get a helpful response from members.

    Cheers
    Missing the following characters (well the ones I want!):

    Samurai Emperor Eddie - Lone Star - Mystic Flame Eddie - Thor Eddie
    Krampus - Minotaur - Cosmic Shinob - Plague Doctor Harpy - Valhalla Maiden - Madame Fortune

    Welcome to the board.

    I would say you have some decent toons there, particularly the Carriage Rider Eddie and Harpy as both are 4* toons. Harpy can hit hard with max talismans and when fully sharded and its passive is very handy. Carriage Rider Eddie should sync quite well with the toons you are using the most, especially Harpy and Pharaoh Water Spirit. I'd focus on evolving/upgrading these to level 80, the only sure toon to evolve to 5* is the Harpy imo, but you are probably awhile away from that I'd gather.

    I would suggest avoiding investing in talisman types like skill and sorcery where possible as that was a rookie mistake I made. Mystical are still useful though.

    The arena is daunting when starting out but if you can win enough battles in the next couple of days the arena store has a legendary soul for only 300 iron coins at the moment if you havent bought that already. Another 4* toon should help at this stage.

    There are character fragment events about once a month which also give you a guaranteed 4* toon so look out for those. And finally troopers are super important to help you progress and gaining better rewards so try to get as many troopers with strong toons as much as possible.

    Another thing is dont put too much faith in the name of the souls like rare and legendary. Stick to the fact that common souls can give you 1-3 toons with 2* the most common, 1* next likely and a decent chance for 3*. Rare souls are most likely to give you 3* toons, with a small chance of 4* and even less chance of 5*. Legendary means you are guaranteed at getting a 4* toon with a slight chance of 5*. But 'rare' sounds like you are gonna get a character that is rare but once you have played for some time you find out that isn't usually the case, even more so for legendary. A lot of luck is needed with souls. It took me ages to get a 4* toon from a rare soul (I guess I was one of the unlucky ones).

    Otherwise just continue to read the board threads, be patient and grind away at the game as that what every player has to do essentially.

    Welcome to the board... I have to say that as for few day playing you've scored amazing toons - consider yourself lucky out there!

    Now some answers: Max & Shard - Carriage Rider Eddie (he's worth sharding - I did almost all campaign with him)... Sure - later on you may be having even bigger luck and encouter better Eddies - so far though - is your best... Next toon to max & shard as soon as you'll be alble to get some resources - The Harpy... She deal LOT of true damage to all enemies, she's cheap as for sharding and has very nice passive - this might be your future toon in the arena - As I can see quite a lot of people using her...

    Warrior Possessed Rockets are worth keeping as well for future evolving and sharding...

    About dupes... I say that way - personally I don't keep ANY dupes (besides Eddies in some cases) - though it happened I had some really good... But I strongly advise if you'll get some heavy hitters (like Harpy you already have, Nomad etc.) - keep them! It will be easier to you to get through all worlds to the end of story and later on in dundeons and some new Worlds as well...
    While you'll be having enough of good toons at your disposal - you may always sacrifice them later - the better toons (evolved, sharded) the better rewards (at least in theory)...

    As for spending badges/IRS... Since you will have long enough free refils as you will gaining experience as the player - I would go for buying souls/buying skillshards for your future toons...

    Good luck with progress, have fun and if you have some questions or struggling with something - just ask - this forum is FULL of very nice people who are experienced a lot and certainly would help you out...

    Cheers,

    Thank you for all the answers.

    And I fire another question : which talisman should i use for harpy? She does true damage it means i should use a mix of red and blue talisman? Or i should use mainly green talisman for a green character?

    Exist a list of talisman final stats? I don't know secondari stats until I evolve them...
