Tips & Tricks To Playing Idle Heroes of Light
Idle Heroes of Light can be a really complicated game if you’re the type of player that wants to learn more about the competitive aspect of the game. Since the game features a PvP system and a player leaderboard, it’s only natural that some players will want to put their names high on the list to prove to the world that they’re not just playing a game. After all, competitiveness is what makes games like these truly exciting as you and other like-minded people race towards the top.
Getting the number one spot isn’t easy nor should people expect that they can do this without sacrificing time and resources to do so. The most important thing to have when joining the race for the top spot is knowledge of even the smallest things about the game. Idle Heroes of Light tries to pass itself as a simplistically designed game but it’s easy to get lost when there are so many things to keep track of. These tips and tricks will help players get the head-start they deserve.
Complete Your Dailies
One thing that Idle Heroes of Light has a lot of is daily tasks. There is a lot of content in the game that’s locked behind daily resets and a limited amount of attempts. Aside from that, there are also daily missions and functions such as gear crafting and alchemy. Completing all of these before the server resets each day should be the player’s top priority because they offer really nice rewards that will be really helpful in growing your account to catch up with the most serious players.
Dailies can feel tedious especially if you feel like the rewards you get are really small. However small those rewards may seem, remember that you get them every day and those small amounts will eventually be the difference between you and the more casual players. Make sure to exhaust all your attempts in the Dungeons and finish all of your daily quests. If you can’t, do as many as you can during your log sessions. Having the BlueStacks Macro Feature might help you finish this a lot easier.
Saving Your Gems
Getting as many heroes as you can is key to making a strong team. However, players shouldn’t jump into the Altar of Heroes as soon as they get enough gems for one or two attempts because it might end up being a waste of gems. As a fellow gacha player, we know quite well the unbearable temptation to summon as soon we can but if you really want the best results, it’s a good idea to save your gems until you can do the 10 Summon for the Time-Limited Recruitment which is usually 2200 gems.
The 10 Summon gives players a guaranteed chance to get a minimum of SS unit. Furthermore, doing your 10 Summon statistically gives you a higher chance of pulling multiple SSS and above units which are the ones you should be gunning for when spending your gems. Never spend your gems on Advanced Recruitment because you throw away the chance to get an SSS+ unit for just a 400 gem difference. For the Advanced and Normal Recruitment, it’s better to just use tickets.
The worst part about playing Idle Heroes of Light is that it’s really difficult to level up your heroes especially once you get to your 1st Leader Resurrection. One thing that happens to players is that they end up pouring all of their resources on temporary characters (SS or below heroes) just to get a strong enough team to beat the current campaign. There’s nothing wrong with that especially since players have the option to refund a portion of those resources using the Hero Resurrection option.
Resurrecting Heroes is different from Leader Resurrection since this process isn’t a way to power up your current unit. Instead, resurrecting a hero will refund a portion of the resources that you used to level it up, allowing you to use those resources for a new hero. Keep in mind that the process of resurrecting a hero will also cost gems so don’t do it too frequently. It’s a good idea to plan out what kind of team you want to have so that you do know when to do a resurrection or not.
Decorating Your Home
The Home feature is the game’s mini housing system that players can design themselves. While this might seem like an unnecessary feature, it actually holds a lot of importance to your development as a player. This is because decorations give passive bonuses to your leader which can be really huge if you’re the type of player that wants to maximize their combat power. If you want to learn more about it, check out our Combat Power Guide to familiarize yourself with it.
Getting decorations or Attire is done by purchasing them using a resource called Flowers. Flowers are acquired through the Friends System, as a daily reward for signing in, or by completing various missions in the game. It’s a good idea to purchase Attire that fits the stats that you’re looking for when building a team. If you’re not too keen on the stats, designing your home for the sake of aesthetics can also be a good way to pass the time.
Joining a Guild
Joining a guild should be a player’s top priority once they unlock the feature. This is because players can do a lot of things as a member of a guild such as doing Guild Quests, unlocking Guild Technology, or challenging Guild Bosses. Those things aren’t only fun, they also give really awesome rewards that can really promote your account’s growth. The social aspect is also advantageous if you want to learn more about the game from more experienced players.
When joining a guild, it’s a good idea to choose one that’s active. Do this by checking the Leaderboards and check for the Top 20-30 guilds and see if some of them have openings. Joining a dead guild might actually end up being detrimental to your progression because you’ll end up investing resources in a place that doesn’t guarantee you a return. If you don’t want to join a guild, it might also be nice to make one yourself.
