BlueStacks' Beginners Guide to Playing The Eminence in Shadow RPG

The Eminence in Shadow is a turn-based RPG that uses collectible characters that you can add to your team to complete the campaign or battle other players. The concept is simple but the steps that you take to achieve all of those goals can be a little complicated especially if you haven’t played a game like this before. That’s why we always recommend that players install The Eminence in Shadow RPG on BlueStacks to give new and veteran players all the advantages they need to play the game at a higher level.

Character Collection

The goal of most RPGs is getting or creating the most powerful character in the game. In team-based RPGs, you need to collect the best characters that work well together and the same applies to The Eminence in Shadow RPG. In this game, players can collect powerful characters by “summoning” them using the gacha system. This system means that you need to spend premium currency to randomly acquire characters of increasing rarity. The higher the rarity, the stronger the character usually is.

Players can only have five characters on their team so players want to have at least FIVE SSR characters on their team. This can be achieved even if you are a player that doesn’t like spending real money on video games by simply saving up on gems. Use your gems solely on summoning new characters and collect different SSR units until you have enough to have a complete squad. The game is generous enough to provide an unlimited amount of gems through hard work that you don’t have to worry about spending real money to keep up.

Campaign Modes

The Eminence in Shadow RPG emphasizes its story above everything else. That’s why you’ll quickly learn that the game has a lot of campaign modes that you can play. While all of them are important because they each give unique rewards, there are only a few game modes that are relevant for progression. Most of the important campaign modes that you want to play are in the QUESTS tab so let’s emphasize the different categories that you can enter there.

The Main Quest is the game’s primary campaign mode since progressing through it will unlock different features of the game. The Seven Shadow Chronicles is arguable the most important campaign mode because it allows you to farm equipment you need to upgrade your characters. Material Quests are also important since the stages here drop valuable loot but are limited per day so make sure to enter daily. Finally, the Event Quests contain limited-time game modes that also give important loot.

Upgrading Units

Powering up your characters is a necessary part of this game. Players can’t simply have high-rarity units and expect that they can clear the game with the units they have. Developing your heroes by leveling them up, giving them powerful gear, and increasing their rarity will give you a better chance to defeat your enemies. Whether it’s completing PvE content or defeating other players in the PvP arena, you’ll need to start upgrading your units to give you a better chance of doing so.

There are many ways you can upgrade your units but the most important thing to keep in mind is to save up your resources to develop your characters. It’s important to remember that you only have a limited amount of resources to develop your characters so you can’t upgrade all of your units. It’s a good idea to invest your resources in S-rank or higher units that are in your current team. The energy system will make it hard for you to farm resources for all of your characters.

Energy System

The Energy System is one of the worst features in a lot of mobile games and unfortunately, The Eminence in Shadow RPG is one of the titles that utilize it. Energy (or Stamina) is a consumable resource that players need to participate in quests. Players only have a certain number of energy before they can’t play the game anymore. However, energy replenishes itself after a certain amount of time so players can once again participate in more quests. Additionally, the energy limit increases as your account levels up.

The energy system limits the amount of play that you can do in The Eminence in Shadow RPG. However, there are many ways to instantly replenish your energy. Players can consume food to recover their energy. There are two types of food: The Tuna King Sandwich and Tuna King Burger. Make sure to consume all your sandwiches first since those have a limit as well. Finally, you can also spend gems to recover energy but we don’t recommend doing this because you always want to use your gems for summoning new characters.

Missions & Quests

Every game features missions and quests. In The Eminence in Shadow RPG, there are different types of quests such as daily, weekly, tutorial, title, attempt, and event quests. Aside from the daily and weekly quests, you don’t really have to actively seek to complete all of your missions because they’ll all eventually be accomplished as long as you play the game regularly.

The most important missions to keep in mind are the daily and event quests because you only have a limited time to complete them. It’s a good idea to complete all of your daily and event quests because they give extremely valuable rewards that will help your account progression develop quickly.
