Dragon Ball Legends is a new RPG for the iOS and Android platforms with a battle system that captures the essence of the actual anime battles as perfectly as possible. You play as a new Saiyan called Shallot, and your goal is to build a huge team of sparking, extreme or hero Saiyans, earn chrono crystals and zeni, complete story quests and events, and mix it up with other players in the PvP mode. Read on for some tips and tricks for Dragon Ball legends!
Super Saiyan Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo, Paikuhan and Pan are the first five “sparking” units in the game, which are the rarest and most powerful units that you can get. To begin the game, you can get anywhere between 0-3 sparking units from initial rolls. Reroll if you don’t by going to your app settings, deleting the cache and data, and restarting the game. It’s suggested to download light data instead of full data when you do this, for speed’s sake. Do this until you reroll up to three sparking characters.
When you’re building a team, pay attention to the z-abilities of all of your team members. You pick three characters per battle, but the three inactive characters’ z-abilities will stay active. For example, Red Nappa boosts Vegeta’s attack power significantly, even when Red Nappa is not actively in the battle party, but is in the main party-of-six. So pick three main fighters, then three characters that buff the main fighters.
Your characters can be leveled insanely high, so if you’re level 49 after about four battles, know that that’s around equal to level 5 in any other RPG. Initially, your character can level to 300, at which point you have to soul boost them, so that they can level them even higher. Soul boosting is done using soul orbs, which are a specific color (yellow, purple, red, blue, green, etc), and can be farmed out of specific story levels. Take note of what chapters allow you to earn what orbs. A fully upgraded character stops at level 1,000.
Be smart with your summoning. You’ll load up with a TON of Chrono Crystals at the beginning of the game, over 3,000 to be exact, and each chain summon costs 1,000. Don’t blow all of your crystals on one summon. Load your party with some basic tough-people using one chain summon, then save the rest of your crystals for things like daily discount summons, for future events, or for new characters to be added to the game (of which there are bound to be many, as this is a fairly new game).
You’ll spend a good chunk of time picking your favorite characters and maxing them out completely, then beating the story, farming it for as many orbs and characters as possible, and eventually all that’s interesting will be the PvP. At a high enough level, it all comes down to skill rather than stats. Evade and don’t present a stationary target. Move side to side and dodge attacks while your Z-points recharge, then unleash combo after combo of attacks. Once you have all of the Dragon Balls, let the ultimate attack go, but if you are close to a kill, save it for the next enemy so that you can do as much quick damage as possible.
