Raid: Shadow Legends is a pretty standard gacha RPG, with one exception: it has realistic, almost dark fantasy visuals. In a genre crowded with anime visuals, it does actually stand out.
But the core gameplay is pretty much the same. Still, we’re going to give you a few tips and tricks to help you progress quickly to the top of the leaderboards.
Raid: Shadow Legends Tips and Tricks:
Get achievement and quest rewards: Don’t forget to pick up the various rewards that are thrown at you as you play. This includes achievements, quests, playtime, and anything else that gets a nice big explanation mark over its name.
Spend those shards: Unlike in many gacha RPGs, you don’t need to save your shards to summon heroes in bulk as you don’t get anything extra for it. So just spend away.
Save your gems for the mine: You get a bunch of free gems from the gem mine, which costs 500 gems. That will take you a while to save for if your a free player, but it’s worth it. We recommend grabbing this before spending gems on anything else.
Pay attention to elemental weaknesses: Bring units that have an elemental advantage in battle, even if they have a lower star rating.
Upgrade your equipment: Upgrading equipment is really cheap, so just go crazy and upgrade your equipment. It has a really low chance to fail up until about +8, so we recommend at least getting it to that level first.
