Leveling up is an essential process in any game, especially when it comes to mobile games. Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is no exception.
This is a game where you can collect all your favorite Star Wars characters and use them to wage combat against your enemies, including other players, in a fight to see who’s the best in the galaxy. One of the most exciting parts of the game is opening packs to unlock new characters, and finding out precisely what each of these can do. The act of obtaining new heroes and experimenting with different team comps is one of the best incentives to keep playing far after you’ve finished every challenge.
However, in the vast majority of cases, unlocking a unit is not the only thing you need to do to create competent teams; you must also level them up to unlock their strongest skills. For many players, this could seem a bit unfair considering how difficult it is to unlock some of these characters. Nevertheless, these fearsome units are as worthless as the most common stormtrooper if you don’t train them.
Fortunately, there are many methods that you can use to quickly level up your units, as well as your account so that you can access all the game’s features without having to wait for weeks.
Complete the Daily Tasks
Once you reach level 6, you will gain access to the daily missions, an essential part of the game that will allow you to participate in daily activities in exchange for multiple rewards, including avatar experience, as well as training droids used in the training of your characters.
This game has a large number of tasks to complete, some of which could be a bit overwhelming, especially if you’re a newcomer. The daily missions, aside from granting awesome prizes, also help to focus your efforts on content adequate for your level. In this sense, you won’t ever have to worry about losing due to going up against a superior opponent or having to repeat the same content over and over to get a few levels.
By consistently completing your daily tasks, you’ll obtain more than enough materials for leveling both your team and your account.
Focus on Five Main Units
As we mentioned in our beginner’s guide for Galaxy of Heroes, it’s essential to focus on a primary team, at least for the first 40 levels of the game. This focus is because, when you finally reach this level, you’ll unlock the Galactic Wars, a mode that consists of several battles back-to-back, which you must complete without failing to receive handsome rewards. These battles are fierce, especially at the moment when you first unlock them and don’t have a team geared for the challenge.
The reason why we recommend focusing on a single team up to this point is that the difficulty in Galactic Wars scales to your total galactic power. This power increases as you unlock new units and train them. In this sense, if you’ve unlocked plenty of characters, and have been trying to level them equally (why would you do this?), then you’ll likely have decent galactic power, but spread amongst all your units. In this sense, whenever you try to challenge this game mode, you’ll be paired against stronger opponents that your team will not be able to defeat.
Instead, by focusing only on your central team, all your galactic power will be spread among these five units, which will make you a worthy adversary in Galactic Wars. Furthermore, it’s much easier to level a team of five, as opposed to tens of units. In this manner, you’ll be able to strengthen yourself promptly and become powerful enough to overcome most challenges as soon as you unlock them.
Make Smart Purchases
This one applies to all who are looking to invest a bit of real money in this game, but that doesn’t want to empty their savings doing so. If you wish to obtain the highest returns on your investment, we recommend hunting for the limited offers that pop up from time to time, and which offer flexible prices on the items they offer.
However, it’s possible to get good at this game without spending a single penny. In this sense, this tip applies only to those who are willing to partake in microtransactions in exchange for a bit of leverage.
Use Auto-Battle Wisely
The vast majority of mobile games offer some automation to streamline the most tedious parts of the gameplay. Once activated, these features take control of your teams and make the computer play for you. In this sense, you can focus on doing something else while characters fight for you.
If you’re playing on BlueStacks, you can place your units in auto mode and minimize the app so you can perform other tasks on your PC. According to our experience, this is the best way to grind for levels in this game. It is both stress-free and fast, and you won’t have to monitor your cell phone 24/7.
To obtain the best results, try to challenge levels that you can efficiently complete using auto-mode. In this manner, you will minimize the odds of suffering bitter defeats at the hands of your enemies due to the shoddy AI that controls your team.
Use Your Energy Crystals
As you increase your level in this game, gaining more power will become increasingly difficult. This complication stems from the fact that you’ll be significantly limited by your energy, which is required for basically everything in this Galaxy of Heroes. In other words, most tasks require energy to challenge, a resource that regenerates slowly over time.
Fortunately, if you want to level up quickly regardless of your energy, you can purchase energy refills by clicking on your energy indicator. As long as you have enough crystals, you can keep recharging your energy and playing indefinitely. This is one of the smartest ways to invest some of your crystals daily. Just don’t overdo it; you don’t want to spend ALL your crystals on recharges. We recommend limiting yourself to one recharge a day.
Leveling up in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes takes some time, regardless of your methods. However, by keeping these tips in mind, you’ll minimize downtime and quickly level up both your account and your teams. You have to keep at it; stay consistent, and you’ll get there in no time!
