Replay the most recent missions: Before replaying a mission, always look at the potential coin rewards by hitting the "Quick Loot" button. Usually, the lower energy missions give you way fewer gold as a reward than higher energy ones do. For example, a 3-energy mission could give you up to 59 coins when you win, while a a 5 energy one would give you a minimum of 120 coins. In other words, you're always making more money by completing the more recent missions. It doesn't really matter if you Quick Loot them or you actually go through playing the mission itself, you make the same amount of money!
Quests: Quests are another really important money-making source. Have in mind that you can't use the Heroes you send to complete quests into missions, so managing a bit is required. You also must make sure that your win chances are as close to 100% as possible, because a quest you lose means lost time and nothing else. You can't know for sure the rewards of the quests, but many of them reward you with coins (if not, other goodies!)
Taking advantage of the Arena: You can fight in the Arena as much as you want - there are absolutely no limits. Your main goal at the end of the Season is to rank as high as possible in order to gain the better rewards, but especially if you are extremely active in the game, you can easily make some nice money out of the Arena. As you probably know, you can win chests daily from getting a specific number of victories each day. Here is what you should do:
First, go and intentionally lose a few Arena Battles. This will lower your rank and in return, you will get easy to defeat opponents. Simply go into battle and flee by tapping the cogwheel in the upper right corner and selecting "Flee" from the menu. Then, start fighting and winning battles until you unlock the Chest - open it. Make sure you run out of chests each day in order to maximize gains.
Rinse and repeat, having in mind that in the last day of the season, you should focus on getting as many wins as possible and staying as high as possible in the league in order to get the best rewards.
Sell Pets: As you play the missions, you will unlock all sorts of Pets that you can equip your heroes with. You can also (and should) sell these Pets in order to make some extra money. Always keep an eye on them and make sure you're always equipping the best possible pets - but don't worry about selling all the rest. The good thing with pets is that you can unequip and re-equip them freely, so basically you could do with just 4 top pets that you switch from hero to hero based on the needs.
Log in daily: Logging in daily ensures that you get the daily bonus which is, in most cases, a nice pile of gold. So make sure that you log in each day, even if you don't have time to actively play the game!
Keep an eye for special events: There will always be some sort of a Special Event in the game, and these give you the opportunity to win a lot of coins too. So keep an eye out for special events and make sure you focus your attention on completing them and getting the most out of them.
Manage your money: This helps you indirectly to have more coins in the game. This means that you should never spend your coins on hero upgrades or pet upgrades that will prove to be worthless in the long run. This means upgrading and promoting Common heroes in the first place. The only common heroes that you should upgrade (in my opinion) are Timothy and Stumbler (the healer). All the other common heroes will be easily replaced by rarer ones, so it makes no sense in upgrading them - especially since you won't have enough money to keep up!
Another trick when choosing the heroes to focus on is looking at opportunities to collect shards in order to Promote/Evolve them. If the missions in the campaign don't usually give you potential shards for them, then it will be more difficult to get them. In this case, their skills are extremely important: check them all out and see which are useful in battle. You will see that most heroes in the game are worthless, while some are only good in certain circumstances.
But the golden rule of thumb remains this: the rarer heroes will always be better than the common ones, so don't spend your money promoting and upgrading the skills of the common ones. This gives you more resources to focus on the ones that really matter - the ones you'll use in battle and the ones that will help you win.
Once you complete all the missions in a chapter on any difficulty level, you unlock the "Quick loot" option. You get 1 free quick loot token every hour but, just as with energy, their total number is limited. However, making sure that you go with the quick loot option is essential to your overall progress and the speed with which you climb up the ranks. When you use the Quick Loot, you are no longer taken to the battle, which is automatically solved. You win all sorts of great rewards, including XP bottles (since your heroes gain no XP from this). This is extremely useful to make some stocks for new heroes or those you want to level up quickly, but most importantly for getting hero shards ASAP. Each mission has a chance of you winning some hero shards for a particular hero (shown to the right of the mission). You can get those shards once every 24 hours and, for the main heroes or your favorite ones, you should do this every day in order to evolve them and make them better. This is why I consider Quick Loot to be vital and I am always starting my day by draining my energy and using all the Quick Loot options I have. Brilliant!
Evolve your heroes: Even if you don't have a ton of rare heroes to start with, you can still evolve them into their rare counterpart. This, of course, takes time and resources, but it's better than having no option. You can evolve heroes by collecting shards (as described in the previous tip) and this means one extremely important thing: even the smaller heroes with poor stats can become really good after evolving them. Of course, getting the rare or rarer ones from start is better, because in order to evolve a common hero to rare you need to go through 5 evolutions which require a ton of money and shards, but in most cases you won't have an option. So prepare for playing this game for a looong time: the more you play, the more you will be rewarded.
Know your heroes: And pick your favorites! There are currently 120 heroes available in Lionheart: Dark Moon and you won't be able to turn them all into maxed out characters. Therefore, check out their stats and pick the best of the best to work on in the long turn. When looking at heroes to choose, have two things in mind: first, their Element (color) and second, their starting skills and stats. You should obviously choose the stronger ones, since they will turn into impressive heroes. Knowing your heroes goes hand in hand with knowing the elements and which element they are strong against. This way, you will always be able to bring into battle heroes that are stronger against your enemy. Try to never go to battle with more than one hero that is weak against the opponent's elements. Knowing the skills they have also helps a lot, because you can better prepare for battles.
Friendships: An extremely interested concept brought into play by Dark Moon is friendship. After each completed battle in the story mode, your heroes will earn friendship XP as they do regular XP. Your heroes become friends the more they fight together, and higher levels of this stat increase their chances of attacking together when performing a regular attack. This can help a lot in battles, especially in the long run. Each hero can have 8 friends, so the options are pretty large here, but it doesn't hurt to keep an eye on these as well because it appears that you can't replace friends once all the slots are filled. So keep your teams and team rotations under control to keep the friendship levels as high as possible in order to get that upper hand in battle.
Pets and upgrades: My recommendation is not to sell pets for a long time, or until you have at least 10-15 solid pets in your team and many similar ones that you don't need. The good thing about pets is that they can be equipped and unequipped as you see fit, meaning that you can remove a pet from a hero and pass it to another one for a specific battle. But despite the theory, I usually forget to do so and found out by practice that it's best to have all your heroes equipped with a pet from the beginning. Make sure you check out their stats and improvements and add them accordingly to your heroes. Keep leveling them up, but also keep an eye on your coin levels as everything costs money and it's really easy to run out of cash for upgrades! Balance is key here as well.
Skills and upgrading them: Each hero has various skills, some of which must be unlocked first - and some of which can be upgraded. In order to upgrade skills (or unlock them), you need various elementals, which are pretty difficult to obtain. Therefore, I would suggest to stick to them and only use them for unlocking and leveling up skills for the heroes you actually use in battle. There's no point wasting them (and the coins) on heroes you will never use, right?
Complete the daily goals: Money and premium currency are extremely difficult to get. One thing that really simplifies everything is the daily goals menu. Each day, new missions will be given to you and you should try to complete them as fast as possible. You won't only get coins as rewards, but also other useful items, including keys and premium currency.
Perform in the Arena: The arena is another easy way for active, strong players to win some nice rewards. The Arena resets weekly and the rewards get better as you climb up the ladders, but doing your best each time is extremely useful as you get quite a lot of premium currency (the crowns), as well as regular coins. Based on your final placement, you can also earn keys and even new heroes, plus the Daily Gauntlet which is rewarded for winning 5 times in the arena. A thing you MUST keep an eye on!
Building the perfect squad: With over 100 heroes and so many elements to keep in mind, building the perfect team of heroes might seem extremely complicated. But here are my tips for building a squad (or more) that will take you as far as possible:
- Always have a healer in the band. No matter how good your heroes are, a healer will help a ton. Pair him up with a pet that increases defence and especially hit points, so that he stays alive for as long as possible, and you'll do better than most
- Always have a back-up team in mind. Or at least a few team members that can replace existing ones based on the types of enemies you're facing
- Have a main team of maxed out (or of a level as high as possible) heroes, and back-ups from other elements. With friendship bonuses in mind, switch them around in order to max out everything. In the end, you can get around 8 extremely good heroes that cover all the elements (and a few doubles), making you a nearly invincible person. You have to play and replay previously completed missions in order to achieve that, but it's all worth it.
There are sometimes some awkward hero placements when the huge sized ones take up the bottom right spot, covering everybody behind. This is usually bad if you have a healer or a stat booster and you want to target one of the hidden heroes in your team. However, you can fix that by going back to the dungeon after the battle is won and restarting the battle. Now your heroes will be rearranged and easier to manage.
Now, if you have some spare time on your hands, you can really take this to the next level, by increasing the friendship levels of your heroes. This can be done by sending the same team over and over into battles in the campaign mode - but the good part is that you don't need tokens to get the benefits. So set groups of 4 heroes that are most likely to fight together in the dungeon (based on their strength), set the game to auto battle and send your team complete the easiest mission in the game over and over again. You can simply let the device charging on your desk and tap every now and then to restart the mission. This takes a lot of time, but is extremely useful because it increases the chances of Friendship attacks and therefore helps you deal more damage in the battles. At the same time, this is a very long term commitment so you don't really have to do it if you don't have enough time on your hands.
Pets are extremely useful in the game, but you probably didn't really care to equip your weakest heroes with one. Now you should. Simply start by adding any type of pet you have available to your heroes, then as you have more options, start upgrading those pets. I don't feel that you should spend money to level those pets up - at least not for the weakest heroes, but at least make sure that there's some sort of pet boosting your heroes' skills. Later on, when you have a solid understanding of your heroes and their skills, as well as more pets to choose from, you can start equipping pets that will truly help them - for example, add a crit multiplier pet to a hero that already has high Critical chance and so on.
