In this article we're going to discuss how to build your team, understanding runes, using skill ups, importance of friends, GB10, food monsters, and getting into guilds. These are all crucial elements to understand and are necessary to save you time and energy. Don't skip any of these or else you're going to kick yourself in the foot later on. Thanks in advance for reading!
1. Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
In Summoners War, synchronizing your team so that they all work together is crucial to progress in the game. Many summoners make the mistake of loading up all their bets on one monster. When you do this, chances are your team won't survive. A typical team needs to have a damage dealer, attack/speed buff, debuffs, ability to strip buffs from bosses, and healer. Keep in mind that buffs don't stack, so having two of the same will be wasteful. Try to strategize and see how each monster contributes to the team as a whole and not as an individual.
2. It's All About the Runes, Runes, Runes
As strong as some of the Nat 4 & Nat 5 monsters are, without good runes you won't get very far. Here are some key elements you need to keep in mind when working on your runes.
• Focus most of your attention on your 2, 4, and 6 slot.
• Get runes with % boost and not just stat boost(except speed) on your 2, 4, 6.
• Pay attention to your multipliers. These will make a big difference in its effectiveness.
3. Time to Skill Up!
People complain a lot that even with good monsters and runes their monsters are still not surviving. You need to skill up your monsters to get the most out of them. You'd be surprised how many summoners forget about this. In the early game use family monsters to skill up. Focus on ones that are the easiest to get first. SAVE YOUR DEVILMONS for your best nat 5 monsters (they are very hard to get family skill ups).
4. You Got a Friend in Me
Having lots of friends in SW is very important. If you are getting started, don't worry. Just ask people in the chat and they will add you. A major benefit is being able to use your friends Rep monsters to help level your other monsters. Best part is you get extra bonus exp since rep and mentor monsters don't get any when you use them! You should always use your rep monsters first each day to help speed up your leveling process. Don't be shy! Go out there and make some friends!
5. GB10 All the Way
Giants B10 might be daunting at first, but you definitely need to work towards this goal. GB10 is where you'll farm to get great runes to strengthen your monsters. Now, there is definitely a higher strategy to tackle the strong giants, and you'll need the right line up to do the job. Click here to check out this detailed GB10 strategy to speed up the process for you. Try to focus a significant amount of energy and time into getting to GB10 to not only make your game experience easier but a lot more fun!
6. It's Just Food
There are a lot of cool monsters in Summoners War. Knowing which ones to spend your energy on is very difficult. This was actually why we created this website. There is no right or wrong way to play this game, however, there is a slow way and, of course, a faster way. If you find a monster you really like, there's nothing wrong with leveling it up. Just keep in mind there are a lot of monsters that aren't even worth leveling up because they don't offer enough benefits in the long term. These monsters are referred to as Food Monsters(Ones used to feed into other, better monsters).
7. Be Guild Active
There's one simple reason to get into a guild as soon as possible. Guild Rewards. These are only accessible to guild members. As you battle other guilds and enter into sieges you receive guild points. There are a lot of very valuable prizes that you'll want to spend your points on. In the early game, there are plenty of lower level guilds that automatically accept new members. No need to request guilds unless you are higher level with lots of potential to benefit that specific guild.
