The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross – Easy and Quick Farming Guide
When it comes to gacha games, resources play a vital part since you will need them for many different purposes. From summoning the best characters and upgrading your roster to improving your gear and even purchasing powerful items, you will need to farm lots and lots of resources.
However, like with any other gacha game, it takes a bit of know-how to learn how to farm in 7DS Grand Cross, which is why we created this guide. Read on to learn about the basics of farming, as well as to find several tips and tricks on where to focus your efforts when grinding in this game.
These are some of the things you should focus on at the beginning of 7DS:
- Blaze through the story quests as much as you can in order to unlock side content such as village quests and SP dungeons.
- Complete every single village quest to improve your friendship with the townspeople. Your friendship will affect your access to the farming zones in each area, among other things.
- Travel to every farming area and complete the quests therein to farm for Awakening materials and gear.
- If you’re running low on stamina, use your friendship coins and silver coins to purchase stamina potions.
The very first thing you’ll notice after starting in 7DS is that there isn’t really much to do. This is because you need to progress through the main story in order to unlock all of the different game modes and challenges that you will be farming later on. Luckily, it only takes an hour or two of gaming in order to unlock some of the first farming features, including access to the different farming areas in chapter 1.
Unlocking Farming Areas in 7DS
In this sense, the first thing you’ll want to do upon arriving at a new area is unlocking the farming zones. This is achieved by increasing the friendship level with the corresponding town in every chapter. Once you increase your standing with the town, you will gain access to the locations where you can farm precious awakening materials, as well as many different items.
The key to increasing your farming options in 7DS is simply to complete quests. The more access to farming zones you have, the more materials you’ll be able to acquire. And you’ll need every single piece of resources you can get your hands on in order to perform Awakenings and upgrade your characters.
As a side note, keep in mind that, while Awakening is important for improving any character, and is something you should do whenever possible, the single largest CC gain in 7DS comes from your gear. By unlocking, upgrading, and equipping more powerful gear, your characters will become much stronger than by simply Awakening them. Not to mention that it’s pretty easy to farm starter gear early on.
For these reasons, whenever there’s a “Free Stage” even going on, you should definitely farm as much as you can. Not only will you get lots of Awakening materials, but you will also score some sweet gear.
Farming Gold and Diamonds
While gear and Awakening materials are definitely crucial in 7DS, so are gold and diamonds. The former is used for many transactions in the game, including purchasing some starter gear. Meanwhile, the latter is used for summoning the best characters through the gacha system. In other words, you’ll need as much of both of these resources.
The best way to farm gold in 7DS is simply by using your Gold SP Dungeon Keys in the SP Dungeon in the area. Like stamina, these keys regenerate over time. You can carry up to 10 golden keys at any one time, meaning that you should always use them whenever you’re capped out to reduce the wasting of unused keys. Alternatively, if you’re actively farming, you can spend silver coins and friendship points in the store to purchase extra keys.
Farming diamonds, however, is much more difficult since this is the premium resource in the game. However, even as a F2P player, you can score hundreds of diamonds in 7DS each month simply by playing a few minutes every day. Some of the best ways to farm diamonds in this game include the following:
- Daily logins rewards
- Daily quests
- Completing story chapters (one time only)
- By ranking up in PvP
When it comes to farming diamonds in 7DS, the largest source of this currency is from ranking up in PvP, since it gives a hefty weekly income of around 40 of these. Aside from this, completing a story chapter basically gives you a free 11x summoning since you will obtain 30 diamonds when you finish 100% of the quests.
Best Farming Teams
Farming for resources in 7DS means that you’ll be constantly battling against hordes of weaker enemies, with the exception of extreme boss farming. For the most part, you’ll want a team of characters that can focus on blasting down groups of enemies with AoE skills. Some of the best team comps in 7DS include the following:
- Red Howzer, Green Elizabeth & Hawk, Blue Weindheit (PvE AoE)
- Red Howzer, Red Arthur, Green Ban (PvP Burst and AoE)
- Green Gilthunder, Blue Weindheit, Green Elizabeth & Hawk (General PvE Farming)
We went into further detail on how these team comps work in our updated tier list article for 7DS. Feel free to take a look if you want to learn more.
In short, farming in 7DS takes diligence; it isn’t something you can just simply automate. Make sure you log in at least once a day to use your Golden Keys, and to complete your daily quests. Later on, you can use your excess stamina to farm for Awakening materials whenever a Free Stage even pops up.
