BlueStacks’ Beginners Guide to Playing Kingdom Guard
Kingdom Guard has a simple game design that makes it easy for players to start. The thing that isn’t advertised to players is that the game starts being complicated the more they continue playing the game with new features and mechanics being unlocked along the way. If you’ve been playing the game on idle mode, you might be surprised about all of the new features that suddenly popped up out of nowhere. This beginners’ guide aims to clear up all the questions you have about this game.
There are so many things that you can learn about Kingdom Guard despite the core mechanics of this game being centered around auto-play. Of course, it wouldn’t be sustainable if the game was just an idle-clicker game that players could simply leave on the table while doing something else. The game allows players to unlock features and experience new game modes that they didn’t know were possible. Here are some simple tips that beginners will appreciate when they start playing the game.
Stage progression in Kingdom Guard is straightforward. Players will fight a wave of monsters per stage. After a certain number of stages (the value increasing the farther you climb), players will be fighting a boss that rewards the player with a tremendous amount of gold. Additionally, the types of enemies that spawn also change. After 100 stages, the entire stage will transform along with the enemies. Remember that enemies become harder to kill after every stage, so it’s crucial to upgrade units.
A stage is considered a success when players manage to clear all enemies before any of them reach their goal. When an enemy reaches its goal, the stage will be regarded as a failure, and the game will automatically pause the progression at the previous stage until the player manually sets the game to continue where it left off. This allows players to set up their units before attempting the stage again. There are no solid repercussions to failing a stage, so don’t worry about it too much.
How to Use Gold
Gold is the primary currency in Kingdom Guard. Players gain gold either by defeating enemies in tower defense mode or receiving it as a reward from quests, achievements, and missions. Whenever a pile of gold is received from quests, achievements, and missions, it will automatically be credited to your account. Another way to earn gold is through the Vault, which automatically gathers gold. Players can claim the gold at any time, gaining everything the Vault has accumulated since it was last collected.
Gold can be used to upgrade structures or purchase new units in the tower defense. Units and structure upgrades become more expensive the more you upgrade them until players reach a point where it’s difficult to afford even a single promotion. Players will need to find ways to start farming gold to keep up with the increasing demand for upgrades and purchases. This resource management feature adds to the difficulty of playing the game.
Units & Heroes
There are two types of characters in Kingdom Guard, units and heroes. Units are the characters that you primarily see in tower defense mode. These units can be purchased using gold and are upgraded by combining two units of the same level together. Units are bought and have levels that are set according to the base level of your Castle. The higher the Castle’s level, the higher the base level of the units are. Units’ levels are also capped according to the Castle’s level.
Heroes are special units in Kingdom Guard. Players can acquire heroes by going to the tavern to randomly recruit these special characters through the gacha system. Players can upgrade heroes by feeding them experience and can promote them by combining two or more heroes of the same rating. Heroes are unique and have special attacks that players can unlock by upgrading them to a higher level or rarity. They are much stronger than units and serve as the central military strength of the tower defense mode.
The Kingdom is where players will do non-combat tasks such as managing the Castle, recruiting new heroes, or collecting gold through the vault. There are a lot of tasks that players can do inside the Kingdom, so they should always take a look at it to check what upgrades they can do to make their power more potent. However, as we’ve already mentioned before, every action in Kingdom Guard will require the player to spend a certain amount of gold, including Kingdom upgrades.
Facilities in the Kingdom are unlocked after the player has reached a particular stage. The most significant upgrade in this place is the Castle because its level dictates many limitations in the game, especially regarding units and heroes. Upgrading the Castle should be the player’s primary goal. Aside from that, players are also expected to upgrade the other facilities once they are unlocked. The game will always show a number notification if a task can be done inside the Kingdom.
Missions & Quests
Missions and quests serve as the players’ primary goals in playing the game. There are two types of quests which are the Chapter Quests and Daily Quests. Chapter Quests are essential because they guide the player on what they need to do to become better. Additionally, completing chapter quests can unlock new features and put the player one step closer to hatching the dragon egg. These missions also provide a lot of promising rewards that are worth getting.
Daily quests are repeatable missions that players can attempt every day. By completing a daily quest, players will earn a certain number of daily points necessary to acquire chests. Chests provide random rewards depending on the quality that is given. It is essential that the player tries to complete all their daily quests to get the maximum amount of rewards per day. Another type of quest is event quests that appear only during specific time periods.
