You have to open only 3 chests every other day and leave the rest for the next day.

Pay special attention to the enchantment runes you are using and their type when you are about to reach the maximum level of a glyph.
If reaching the maximum level requires 20 units of enchanting energy and you use a Great enchantment rune (which contains 100 units of enchanting energy) you will lose 80 enchanting energy points. No points will be reimbursed.
The intelligence glyph is at level 39, requiring only 20 enchanting energy points.

Theater

The tickets from the theater can be used to buy emeralds and then exchange them for energy. If you level up your top 5 heroes team first and do well in the Arena, spending 2 x 50 emeralds (240 energy in total) should keep your emeralds balance positive and contribute to your daily guild activity points.

Guild Activity

Updating hero's glyphs at least once a day will guarantee you 700 guild activity points each day.

If you reach 850 guild activity points you'll receive 20 glyphs as a reward (10x10).
If you reach 1500 guild activity points you'll receive 300 glyphs as a reward (15x20).

Even if you have plenty of glyphs at the moment think twice before spending all of them at once.
If you can't reach 1500 guild activity points by spending energy you can also earn them by selling items that you don't need. Start from the top of the list where are the items with the lowest quality.

Joining an active guild that reaches the maximum guild activity points each day will usually guarantee you the chance to upgrade at least one glyph a day.

Grand Arena

Put 3 strong heroes in each of the slots in the Grand Arena and build teams around them. Try to distract the enemy.
A common distraction strategy is to level up heroes even if their skills or artifacts are not upgraded. Consider not only the level of the enemy's heroes but also their total power and their rank reached.
Remember that the enemy teams will also have to be assembled so it is not a question of the best one or the best two teams here.

I try to stay in the top 100 positions with 1-2 fights before 8 p.m. so I can earn at least 35 grand arena coins per hour. Just before 8 p.m. I try to advance as much as possible with 1-2 fights so I can get a higher daily reward. Before I go to bed I go for all battles left so I can advance as much as possible and earn even more grand arena coins per hour while most of the people are asleep (it really depends on the server and the timezones but this strategy turned out to work well for me).

Arena Fights

The strategy here is similar to the Grand Arena fights except that all fights can be conducted just before 8 p.m. so a higher ranking is achieved and a higher reward is received.
There's also a reward for reaching a level you have never reached before. Use all of your battle fights left after 8 p.m. to try getting this prize or just test your team and get some feedback.

Arena Cut Off Time

The result of the battle will be counted just after you start the fight. So if you start your battle at 7:59:55 (plus 2-3 seconds for connection time), your battle result will be visible for the rest of the players a few seconds after this even if the battle may take 30 seconds or more to complete.
Having this in mind, even if you start your battle a couple of seconds before 8 pm, e.g. 7:59:55, and your battle takes more than 5 seconds, you'll still get the reward for the position won.
Using a WiFi connection instead of a 4G connection may help you to increase your timing accuracy.

Town Shop

If you have enough gold you'll be able to buy EXP potion every day to keep your top 5 teams always leveled up with your team level.

If you are early in the game it is also important to buy the available items here even if you don't need them to upgrade your heroes. These items can be exchanged for guild activity points which will guarantee you receiving glyphs.

Tower

As a rule of thumb for every beginner level up 5 strong heroes first. This will also guarantee you climbing to the top of the tower with no or fewer efforts.
If possible use two healers so you can keep all of your heroes in a good health up to the top. Some of the best choices are Martha and Celeste but you can also use Thea if you have not unlocked these two so far.
Alternatively, if you only use Celeste, switch to her healing form and keep her this way until the end of each battle.

Soul Coins

Buying soul coins as early as possible in the game will guarantee you leveling up a hero to 6 stars in a timely manner.

Once you level up one of your heroes to 6 stars, you'll have access to a soul shop where you can exchange soul coins for items. One soul stone can be exchanged for 100 soul stone coins.

Kai, Orion, Faceless, and Satori are some of the considered choices to level up to 6 stars even if they might not be in your main team or if you are not planning to use them in your main team. You can always use them in the B or C team in the Grand Arena.

Dungeon

Try to gather 150 Titanite in the Dungeon every day so you can receive summoning circles and level up your titans. Why 150? This is the amount considered "safe" for collecting every day. Battles are becoming harder each level and slowing down will guarantee you a constant flow of summoning circles each day.

Another way of obtaining Titanite is by buying summoning spheres in the "Circle of Summoning". Buying 10 summoning spheres will add 100 Titanite to your daily Titanite stats.

Usually, the best time to buy summoning spheres is during an event, when there's a 55% discount.

Manual Titan Control

Do manual titan battles and save energy near the end of each battle.

Leave the titans to kill the leftover enemies with low health so they can reload energy - this works well if you have Hyperion in your team so he can heal the titan with the lowest health in your team.
This also guarantees you reloading more energy for the next round.
Sigurd's shield lasts for 5 seconds and if you activate it too early before the battle begins you will lose some of the seconds while the team walks towards the titan battle. Try to activate it just before the enemy team makes the first hit. It is also very effective to save it in a manual titan battle and active it just before Araji uses his ultimate. This way the shield will absorb Araji's damage.
The same rule for timeliness is also valid for Avalon, Ignis, and Mairi. If you active their skills before they are in the battle you might lose seconds before the battle begins.
Nova can stun three enemies at the backline if they are not moving. So hold on using the stun ability at the beginning of each battle until the titans stop moving.

Titan Soul Stones from Dungeon Battles

Remember this: Water beats Fire, Fire beats Earth and Earth beats Water.

This is called "Circle of the Elements".

Circle of the Elements - Water, Fire and Earth
Hero Wars
Circle of the Elements - Water, Fire and Earth
When you fight against a single element titans team (Water, Fire, or Earth) in the Dungeon, you'll receive a titan soul stone from the element that is weaker than your opponent team's element. For example:
  • If your opponent in the Dungeon is a Fire titans team, you'll have to fight it with a Water titans team by default and you'll get Earth titan soul stones as a reward.
  • If your opponent in the Dungeon is a Water titans team, you'll have to fight it with an Earth titans team by default and you'll get Fire titan soul stones as a reward.
  • If your opponent in the Dungeon is an Earth titans team, you'll have to fight it with a Fire titans team by default and you'll get Water titan soul stones as a reward.
Pick the opponent team wisely based on the titan soul stones you need at the moment. For example, if you have leveled up all of your Fire titans to 6 stars and you don't need more of their soul stones at the moment, you should not fight against Water titans (with Earth titans by default) because you'll get Fire titans souls stones.

Guild Wars

Save aside some of your daily emerald earnings for leveling up your titans. Strong titans teams are highly likely to be considered champions in the Guild Wars which will bring you more Guild Wars Shop's resources.

The cross-server tournaments will give you cross-server trophies which can be used to buy rare items and soul stones. For example, such an item is the Evolution Booster which costs 500 cross-server tournament trophies. This item will allow you to evolve heroes without spending millions of gold.
Items available in the Guild War Shop.
Items available in the Guild War Shop.
If you are planning to exchange gold coins, silver coins, or cross-server tournament trophies for soul stones, focus on one hero so you can reach 6 stars faster.
Having in mind the cross-server tournament trophies are less than the other rewards it is preferable to save them for the Guild War Shop's items and not exchange them for soul stones from the "Heroes" section.
If you are planning to use the "Evolution Booster" please note 1 soul stone will cost between 1.66~ and 2 cross-server tournament trophies.

Gift of the Elements

It might be very expensive to upgrade your Gift of the Elements for a hero in your main team every day. If you don't do it you won't be able to complete the quest related to gathering 150 Titanite.

In order to bypass this limitation just upgrade the first level of any hero (250 sparks that cost 7000 gold) and then reset it.

Rarity Fair

The Rarity Fair allows you to promote heroes by spending emeralds instead of spending energy for gaining the missing hero's items.
It appears only once per day, just after your first energy spends for the day.

If you chose to promote the hero via the Rarity Fair, you'll be offered to do the same for another hero right after this. You can promote up to two heroes per day using the Rarity Fair.
The heroes that qualify for being in the Rarity Fair should have a high enough level so all of their items can be equipped.
This hero doesn't qualify for the Rarity Fair because it has items that cannot be equipped.
This hero doesn't qualify for the Rarity Fair because it has items that cannot be equipped.
Consider putting on hold leveling up heroes you don't need at the moment so you can have the ones you are interested in more often in the Rarity Fair's pool.

Timezone change

You have the chance to change your timezone once every 30 days.
Switching to a timezone that is behind (e.g. from GMT+3 to GMT+2) will allow you to play two times in the arena and receive two awards on the same day. In our example, the first award will be at 7 pm and the second one will be at 8 pm.
The switch between the timezones needs to be done in the gap between the new timezone and the old one (e.g. between 7 pm and 8 pm).
Note that changing the timezone can affect your daily routine. You can naturally do this after the end of the daily saving time.

Hydra Attack Strategies

One of the most effective teams against Hydra is Martha, Mojo, Jhu, Maya, and Markus. Some of the players report that even if their team is strong enough they don't do millions of damage as expected.
The reason for this is that you need Hydra to have as much health as possible in order to boost your damage dealt.
Jhu's third skill "I will take your life" is related to doing damage based on the enemy's health. So Jhu will do more damage if the Hydra head's health is full or as much as possible.

Jhu's "I will take your life" skill for Hydra attack.
Mojo will multiply the damage with his fourth passive skill "Hex". You only need Mojo's fourth skill maxed out and keep him alive long enough so he can activate it. The skill will stay active during the whole fight even if Mojo dies.

Mojo's "Hex" skill for Hydra attack.
In addition, you can also add a hero with a high magic penetration weapon, like Orion, Lars, which will boost Mojo's damage output, or just use a different hero team combination based on your account development.
Before going crazy and dumping a lot of resources in Mojo and Jhu please note that this behavior is unintended by the developers and this might change in the future.

Hydra Quests Hints for Guilds

It might be tempting to attack the first levels of Hydra because you'll be able to beat them easily. However, this might not be the best strategy for your guildmates.

There are quests that give you Fairy Dust based on the damage you do for each Hydra.

Fairy Dust quests rewards based on Hydra's damage dealt.
Fairy Dust quests rewards based on Hydra's damage dealt.
For example, if you have already stuck doing more damage than the quest can reward you for Common Hydra and Elder Hydra, you have to consider skipping these for a couple of days or attack them later, so the other guild members can benefit from these quests as well.

Titan Artifacts

Leveling up one artifact of a titan to its maximum level of 120 will require 247,036 fairy dust and 196,147,700 million gold or 349,642 emeralds.

Leveling up one titan's artifacts to their maximum level of 120 will require 741,108 fairy dust and 588,443,100 million gold or 1,048,926 emeralds.
Leveling up all titan artifacts to their maximum level of 120 will require 8,893,296 fairy dust and 7,061,317,200 million of gold or 12,587,112 emeralds.

Winterfest Season Energy Saving

At first sight, the quests "Weapons of Light" and "Souls Saved" seem like too energy-consuming ones. You can save your energy spending by completing campaigns that cover both quests - obtain an item and save souls at the same time. Here are some examples:
  • 3-2 (Rocky Wasteland) - you can both fight "Killer Orc" and receive "Imperial Shield" items
  • 3-11 (Fir Valley) - you can both fight "Killer Orc" and receive "Skull Crusher" items
  • 4-11 (Granite of Silence) - you can both fight "Skeleton-arbalester" and receive "Cane's Seal" items
  • 8-5 (Monolith of Deceit) - you can both fight "Wild Demon" and obtain "Serenity Stone" items
  • 7-4 (Torchlit Passage) - you can both fight "Killer Orc" and obtain "Funeral Totem" items
