Start with the Main Story

When you're first starting out, check out Story Maps. Clearing these maps will help you learn the basics of battle while also strengthening your team.
You can also earn an Orb as a first-time clear reward for each story map.
Orbs are needed to add additional allies through summoning, so gathering more Orbs can help you progress through the game.

* Completing story chapters can allow you to unlock new chapters.

Level Up Your Tactics

Having trouble winning battles?
If that's the case, why not give the Auto-Battle option a try?
Watching your allies fight on their own might help you understand the basic controls and battle tactics better.

Gain the Advantage!

Pay attention to the weapon triangle! It's much easier to defeat your enemies if you strategize around it.
Red weapons are strong against green ones, green weapons are strong against blue ones, and blue weapons are strong against red ones.
In addition to the weapon triangle, allies and enemies might have an advantage or a disadvantage depending on the special characteristics of the type of weapon they use.

Team Creation and Training

Creating Teams

Gain Allies

Increasing the number of allies who can fight at your side is critical to maintaining the advantage on the battlefield.
You can gain new allies in a number of ways, including by summoning or through Hero Battles. If you get a new ally, be sure to make full use of their strengths.
If you wish to quickly increase your fighting power, consider summoning. Summoned Heroes will always be 3★ or higher.

* Summoning requires Orbs. These can be obtained from Log-In Bonuses, quest rewards, first-time clear rewards for story maps, and other ways.

Hero Battles can be found under the Special Maps option. A different Hero appears each day on a rotating basis.
These Hero Battles are tricky: if any of your allies are defeated, it's instantly game over.
Choose your tactics carefully!

How to Edit Teams

Select Edit Teams from the Allies menu to decide which allies should head into battle. You can create a maximum of eight teams.
Enemies use a variety of weapons, so try to create balanced teams that can adapt to any situation.
(You'll be able to see which weapons your enemies will use on the map-selection screen before heading into battle.)

Tips for Strengthening Your Heroes

Looking for a way to raise your Heroes' levels?

The Training Tower is a great place to work on leveling your Heroes. Entering the maps doesn't take much stamina, making it a better choice than story maps if you want to get stronger.

* The Training Tower will unlock after you clear Prologue: Part 3 in Story Maps.

Battling isn't the only way for your Heroes to gain EXP. You can also use Shards and Crystals gained from the Training Tower or quests to level your allies.

* Check out Level Up in the Allies menu to learn more.

Once your Heroes have gained some SP, go to Learn Skills in the Allies menu. There you can learn skills that will help you on the battlefield.

* SP is usually gained by defeating enemies or leveling up.

Not Gaining EXP? Level Not Rising?

The amount of EXP that Heroes gain in battle depends on the strength of the enemies they are fighting. You'll get more EXP from taking on stronger foes and less EXP from weaker ones.
