Despite being one of the older games on the App Store, Monster Legends has maintained a loyal following. The truth is that this breeding and collection game is fun and easy to play. We can hardly help from playing it ourselves. What more can you ask for from a mobile game?
If you’re serious about your ML account, then you’ll want to follow the advice of more experienced players who are familiar with what you should prioritize to improve your overall gameplay. We’ve made a compilation of all the best Monster Legends tips and tricks for beginners, so let’s get right to it.
1. Go for Gold
Gold is the primary currency of Monster Legends, so don’t be surprised if you need tons of it throughout your gameplay. You need it to clear your island, build habitats for your monsters, and more. Nature habitats are the bad boys that will bring in big gains to help your account get a good momentum early in your playthrough. Later on (much later on), when the Dark Habitat becomes available, you’ll want to replace your Nature ones, since Darkness is, somehow, more profitable.
What monsters you put in the habitats also has an impact on their profitability, but we shouldn’t get too ahead of ourselves early on. To find out more about what you can do to maximize your gold income, don’t hesitate to check out our gold farming guide.
2. Spending (and Earning) Gems
Whatever you do, do not spend your gems. Gather them from your achievements and hoard them like you’re a fairy-tale dragon guarding an ancient treasure. If you’re looking for good value, the best way to spend them is to wait for those half-off promotions.
Whatever you do, do not give in to cheap offers for epics, rares or anything like that. Also, any offer that comes out of the adventure map is bound to put you at a disadvantage. Even if you’re a P2W player, wasting your gems here is just a terrible idea.
3. Building Priority
Because of the breeding slots, it’s crucial that you get your Hatchery up to level 3 as fast as possible. This is one of the things we’re hoarding our gems for. Another thing to look out for is worker number. Many players advise newbies to buy all 5 workers, emphasizing how important it is to have things going on at all times.
Getting all your workers is not really a priority. You’ll be well off with just 4 of them, since most of the times, you won’t be using the queue to its maximum potential. Early on, having two of them is great. If you manage to catch an offer, you can also go for the 3rd, but we’d hold off on getting more until the very late game.
After the Hatchery, the Ultra-Breeding Tree should be the next item on your list. When it’s half off, you can get it for a meagre 75 gems and the value you get out of it is out of this world. With it, you can breed two different sets of monsters at a time, which means that with events such as the Mazes ones, you can have a breeder doing coins and the other set on coming up with those juicy legendaries.
4. Island Clearing
If you’re new to Monster Legends, one of the first things you’ll notice is that your home island is covered in obstacles that prevent you from putting down buildings and habitats. For this reason, most of your early game will be focused on clearing the space to make room for your set-up. Depending on the size of the obstacle, it will take a fixed amount of time and gold to clear.
On the back row, North of where your Hatchery is initially placed, there are some immense rocks to begin with that take 15k gold and even one that will set you back 125k. Given how important gold is, these are massive investments that you should definitely leave for a bit later on. For starters, take care of those trees, bushes, but also tiny and small rocks.
5. Keep the Food
Since we need food to upgrade our monsters, you can bet that this resource is something you need to focus on, as well as have plenty of. You don’t have a lot of food in the early game, so you’ll want to settle on a type of food that’s easy to grow and doesn’t require that much gold. Don’t forget that our first priority is to get the island cleared up.
You might think that Rainbow Snow Peas are the way to go, but we assure you that they are not. At least not until much later on. To learn more about the way food works and what you can do to increase your output, feel free to go through our guide to Monster Legends food production.
6. Team Building
Progressing through Monster Legends is highly dependent on your team of monsters. Your squads are responsible for taking you through dungeons, the adventure map, as well as multiplayer game modes. Since you can get two strong monsters early on, namely Vapwhirl and Concidius (which is a Dragonian Beast), these are the ones you’ll want to build your first core team around.
We need Vapwhirl because he has good Shutdown and Stun. You can get Concidius by completing the very first island on the Adventure Map, but you can also breed one. He’s not the best in terms of denial, at least not in the early stage of your account, but we want him because he’s a good tank. This means he’ll stay alive for longer, which means he’ll do more damage.
7. Play on BlueStacks
Last, but definitely not least, it helps if you play Monster Legends on PC with BlueStacks. Many of the emulator’s features can help you regularly pick up gold and food, so you don’t have to worry about reaching your cap and not being able to log on as much as you’d like. Everything you have to do is set-up a collection macro and then give it the parameters you want.
The automation process takes no longer than 1 minute to complete. After that, you can just leave BlueStacks running in the background while you work or do other fun stuff. Why bother with all the boring activities when you can just use BlueStacks to take care of them in the first place?
