Skylanders Ring of Heroes Combo Key Feature
Combo Key Feature is one of the many amazing features that BlueStacks provides. Skylanders Ring of Heroes is a fitting game to use this great feature.
First, let’s learn how to add a sequence for the combo key feature and then tell you why it can be very useful while playing Skylanders Ring of Heroes on BlueStacks.
To access the ‘Combo Key’ feature on BlueStacks, open keyboard controls and then click on ‘Advanced Controls’.
Now all you have to do is click on ‘+’ to start recording a sequence. While recording a sequence, BlueStacks will memorize every button you used until the recording stops. After you have pressed on the necessary keys, just click on ‘Stop’ to end the recording.
The final step is to assign a shortcut for the recorded sequence. Just type in the key you want to use for the whole sequence.

We talked about the grinding factor in Skylanders Ring of Heroes. Battling again and again for more resources might bore some players. So using this feature is going to mitigate the effect of joyless grinding. This reason is enough to use the ‘combo key’ feature when playing Skylanders Ring of Heroes on BlueStacks. However, there is also the elements factor to take into consideration.
The elements are the pith of Skylanders gameplay. There are a total of ten elements. Each Skylander belongs to a certain one. Every single element is weak or strong against another one. Before fighting a certain Skylander, knowing their associated element is important. This way, you can prepare your Skylanders beforehand accordingly and make your battles a lot easier. Being a turn-based RPG; Skylander Ring of Heroes will require you to use the two special abilities of your Skylanders in every encounter. As we mentioned earlier in the article, there are a total of six abilities you will have to use to come victorious against your enemies.
In the early stages of the Skylanders Ring of Heroes, assigning a combo key without giving it much thought will get you through a lot of fights and mitigate the effects of constant grinding. What we mean is, just create a simple sequence of ability attacks and you will win almost every encounter. However, in the later stages of the game, you need to make sure to use the right abilities and elements to reach glory. This is where the combo key feature becomes even more relevant.
First, take a look at our Skylanders Ring of Heroes tips and tricks article to learn about the element relations. Then, prepare your team accordingly for the battle. Now all you need to do is create a sequence of devastating attacks using the combo key feature that will exploit the enemy Skylanders’.
Let’s take a look at an example.
Life element is weak against air element. In the next battle, the enemy Skylanders team will be composed of two life element Skylanders. Due to that, our team needs to have at least one air element Skylander. After composing our team, we head to the battle. Now we need to put the abilities of our air element Skylander to use. Best way to do this, of course, using the combo key feature. Create a sequence of air ability attacks using the combo key feature, exploit the weakness of the enemy Skylanders, and increase the odds of victory.
