Brave Soul: Frozen Dungeon is an idle RPG that takes the genre to another level with its innovation in the gameplay features that it introduces. The beautiful character art and simplistic gameplay allow players to fall in love with the title as they go on a grand adventure that takes very little commitment to enjoy. With that being said, some gameplay features can prove to be challenging to understand if you’re a total beginner in the game, so we’ve prepared a beginner’s guide to help you.

Beginners often have a tough time adjusting to a new game that they’ve never tried before, and the same is true in Brave Soul: Frozen Dungeon. Even if the game is made to be very simple and has a tutorial system that introduces players to the basics, some features can be lost as most people skip it since it’s not interesting at all. Some players regret the decision a little later when they realize that they have no idea what to do in the game. But don’t worry, that’s why we’re here.

Hero Collection

Hero collection is probably the central theme of the game, as players need to try and assemble the strongest team possible using the characters in the game. Each character has a diverse set of skills, abilities, and traits such that they can work well with other units while performing poorly with others. In that sense, the players are urged to mix and match the heroes they have in their possession until they find the ones with the best synergy when they are placed in a team together.

The game uses a variety of traits to differentiate heroes, such as element, class, role, damage type, and more, to give each hero a sense of purpose. This allows players to think deeply about how they’re going to build their teams rather than just mashing the coolest-looking units together and hoping that it works out. We’ll be making a future article that explains this in detail later on but a good tip to give players right now is to start collecting strong heroes in the game.


Progression is pretty linear in this game since there’s only one campaign setting: the Battle Mode. In the Battle Mode, players will fight opponents until they complete a chapter. Each opponent becomes stronger as they progress through the story, making it more difficult for the player to complete each task as they defeat more and more enemies until they finally reach a point where they can’t beat an enemy at their current level. There is minimal narrative and story-telling involved.

Progression can get boring, but players shouldn’t ignore it since it’s essential to the game. For one, players acquire free summons every time they complete a certain number of chapters, so it’s an excellent way to get the heroes you want especially if you’re a Free-to-Play (F2P) user. There are more reasons why you should complete each chapter in the game, but we’ll get to that a little later. A good habit to develop is completing at least ten stages a day so that your account will continuously grow.

AFK Rewards

AFK rewards are another central feature that most idle games have. In Brave Soul: Frozen Dungeon, players can receive gold, experience, and loot after a certain amount of time has passed, regardless of whether they’re AFK or offline. This allows players who are not active in the game to still receive essential resources that would otherwise need a few minutes or hours of farming to accomplish. It’s a pretty good system that can be rewarding for those busy with other things.

The rewards that players get from this system increase whenever they complete a new stage in the game. As the player progresses through the primary campaign, they’ll get better rewards from this system and be able to increase the limit of their heroes. However, players shouldn’t rely solely on using the AFK rewards to farm resources because it can be extremely slow to get the items you need. It’s still recommended that players actively play the game and collect the AFK rewards later.

Main City

The Main City is like the main lobby of the game, where they get to manage their heroes, teams, or account. There is no combat in the main city (aside from the PvP arena), but there are a lot of facilities that upgrade the efficiency of your heroes in a fight. Many of these facilities are only unlocked when the player has reached a particular stage in the main campaign or has reached a certain level in the game. This is true with many features in Brave Soul: Frozen Dungeon, so make sure to play through these modes actively.

New players should try to tinker with these facilities to discover what they offer. It’s difficult to explain what they do one by one, and because it’s not dangerous to see what each of them does, the player is encouraged to look at them with maximum curiosity. They might even discover one or two functions that would help them in parts of the game they’re having difficulty with. There’s also a lot of free stuff that you can claim here if you look hard enough.


The Wilds is the opposite of the main city, where players get to test their skills by participating in various combat modes. This is similar to the PvE content that many RPGs have since it gives players different types of challenges where they will most likely have to fight their way through strong enemies that drop extremely valuable rewards, which are essential in upgrading their team.

Just like the Main City, players will have to unlock new modes and dungeon levels by reaching a certain level or completing a certain number of stages in the main campaign. Most of the combat modes and dungeons in this area have a daily or weekly reset, so it’s a good idea to visit them regularly and consume all of the available attempts.
