Much like in any mobile RPG, the higher the level of your heroes, the more content you’ll be able to enjoy and explore in King’s Raid. In addition, some of most powerful items require you to be in a certain level range in order to use them. For instance, if you want to equip a T5 Legendary Weapon, your hero must be at least level 51.
But it’s not just your primary line-up that could use leveling up. Sometimes, you might find that you’d like to swap one of your characters for a different, perhaps better one. If you don’t know which of them to prioritize, take a glance at our guide to the best in-game heroes right now.
More often than not, though, you’ll want to raise another team of heroes in order to be competitive in PvP. After all, not all the characters that are extraordinary in PvE content are just as good when facing other players. Fortunately, the developers behind King’s Raid have given us enough ways to level our units to our heart’s pleasing.
The Basics of Growing Your Team
Before we get into how you can get a second group up and running from close to nothing, let’s briefly go over the main ways in which your team can gather experience. After all, once you pass over those level 40, 50, and 60 thresholds, you’ll notice that your team grows at a much slower rate than before.
First and foremost, there’s progressing through the main storyline. This cannot be replaced by anything else. You need to do it as much as possible, every day. So far, there are 9 basic chapters and 3 more have been added in the past year, alongside a great variety of content. Completing all of them will give you the possibility to unlock Hell mode, which we can use for flash farming. More on that later.
Until such a time as you are done with the chapters, you can boost your champions’ levels by doing the daily conquest challenges. These are actually designed for experience gain, so we have our work cut out for us. If you click on the Portal tab on the bottom of your home page, and then on Conquest, you can see all of the boss encounters you have unlocked.
There’s one on each section of the main story, so the more you complete of the latter, the more total experience you can benefit from. You get three tries at each per day and all you have to do is click on Auto Repeat to exhaust these. They also give out some experience bottles. Keep the ones that are smaller level, as they’ll barely make a dent in your main heroes’ experience pool, but they can be invaluable for growing newbies.
Conquest should always be coupled with hot time. You don’t necessarily have to do the Gold gain dungeon, but the experience one is mandatory. If you press the Mission tab, down on the left side of your home screen, and go to Limited mission, you can claim a bonus of 100% more experience for 1 hour, three times a day. This mechanic is tailor made to advance heroes, both great and small, so use it as much as possible.
Power-Levelling New Characters
Knowing all of this, we are now able to grow new units from scrap. Ideally, you’ll want to use the small experience pots to get them to around level 30 before power-levelling them in a Hell mode team, but this is not mandatory. Because of the sheer damage that your main squad outputs at higher tiers, taking your low heroes through conquests is going to be relatively easy. So much so that the 20 second loading screen will likely take more than one of these battles.
There’s even more you can do to accelerate the growing of a second squad. Experience bottles are not just rewards you get from completing various things. You can also make them yourself by storing the experience that a unit would otherwise get from completing a trial and use it on another. So what we’re aiming to do here is equip all of our big boys with experience bottles and then funnel all of their gains into the units we want to power level. Pretty neat, huh?
You can equip and un-equip these flasks at your own discretion. All you have to do is go to your Inventory (Consumables section), click on an empty one, and the hero screen will pop up. However, we do suggest that you use only Deluxe ones. They store 5 times the amount you can get in X-large containers, namely 125k experience. You’ll get some Deluxe pots from completing the main quest, but the bulk of them you’ll have to buy.
Don’t worry, though, there’s no real money involved. Just head over to May’s General Shop in Orveil, click on Use Shop, and buy either the Deluxe or Concentrated ones that are there. If you’ve got the gold, Concentrated flasks are even better than the former, as they let you store 250k per unit.
Level with BlueStacks
Ideally, you’ll want to use the flask-power leveling technique in combination with Hell mode farming. The latter gives significantly more experience, not to mention great gear from Auto Battling. To do this effectively, you’ll need your main squad to be between 84 and 90 with full Red Gear, at the very least. If you don’t know how to get good gear, check out our beginner’s guide to getting easy Legendary items for your team. Believe us, it’s worth it.
After doing this for no longer than 10-15 minutes, you inventory should be brimming with Deluxe and Concentrated flasks of experience waiting to get your newbies from 1 to their max level in a heartbeat. Because we’re playing on BlueStacks, we can make the most out of our Hot time thanks to superior performance. Loading screens take no more than 10-15 seconds to go through, so we can use a lot of time that would otherwise be spent waiting on a mobile device to level our units instead.
One last tip. We advise you to manually give them the pots, rather than just select a bundle of pots and maxing them out. Instead of pressing the Max button, click and hold on the portrait of the unit you want to level and it will be fed pots at a fast rate. The reason for this is that most groups of pots have much, much more experience stacked than your beginner units can handle – unless they’re already awakened, case in which they won’t be reaching their cap that easily.
