Cheats, Tips and Strategy
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include selling and salvaging items and opening chests. As well as these hints and tips we also have a mini-guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:
The key to to landing critical hits so you easily defeat enemies is timing. To perform a critical hit you need to make sure you tap the screen and keep your finger held down until the circle fills the ring. The instant it does lift your finger of the screen and if you have timed it perfectly you will land a critical hit when the circle and ring meet. Check out our Best Weapon page to find out what the best weapon in the game is.
It is important in combat that you are proficient at blocking your opponents blows. On the left of your screen you will see a small shield icon which if you hold will make your character block, the longer your hold it the longer you will block. If you get the timing right you will be able to momentarily stun enemies with your block which will give you an opening to counterattack.
Check Your Challenges
Regularly check your Challenges as they will reward you extra cash when you complete them. Challenges can be found in the 'Quest' menu and will usually involve completing basic actions such as dealing a certain amount of damage. New challenges will not appear until you have cleared the old ones from the menu and your reward must be collected manually by tapping the 'claim' button.
Sell and Salvage Items
Early in the game you will be tasked with helping save a blacksmith and then assisting him in rebuilding his smithy. Make sure you get this done as quickly as possible as doing so will be useful for all sorts of things, including selling or salvaging items to get resources you need.
Once you have completed the specified task of a Quest you are given two options. You can either leave immediately or explore the area. If is recommended that you explore as there are side rooms and tunnels you can find which will have secrets and chests hidden in them.

Always keep an eye out for food items while you are in dungeons or on Quests as tapping them will heal you if have taken any damage.
Don't waste the Gems you earn during the game to finish timers. Instead save them and use them to increase the number of chests you can collect by spending them on the various inventory slots. Check out our Shop Offers page to find out how you can get Gems without having to spend real money.
Chests will usually include new weapons, armour, crafting materials, and Gems which makes them useful for upgrading. If you open a chest before you shut off the game or go out Questing you will be able to leave the game and do other things while the chest slowly unlocks. Don't waste Gems on opening chests immediately.
