Unlike the live-action battling of Clash of Clans or the chess-style battle system of Clash Mini, Clash Quest is more of a turn-based battle system. Unlike Clash Mini, where you create a deck to use each round, you will be upgrading a squad of units to use during matches.
All About Upgrading Your Squad
In Clash Quest, you’ll notice a squad tab where you’ll see upgradeable units. Upgraded troops dish out more offense to the enemy’s defense, of expected. In fact, the battle will really be decided on whether your troops in Clash Quest are leveled up enough to deal more damage than the enemy.
Properly distributing your coins when upgrading your troops could make the difference between a win and a loss. Upgrading your characters is what will allow you to progress to later levels in the game.
Check your daily deals every day to see if you can get some free gold in Clash Quest to upgrade your troops, especially if you don’t want to spend real-life money on gems in the game. Unfortunately, you can only get so far in Clash Quest without upgrading your units.
The Battle System
When you start your first game, you’ll notice dots in the top right corner of the screen. Think of these dots as different waves of opponents you and your troops need to get through to complete the level. Before you battle, if you scroll up and down, you’ll notice the dots in the top right corner move with you. This is the perfect chance to preview the battlefield and get an idea of what to expect in the upcoming battle.
While being on the other end of a tower defense game sounds easy enough, you only have the set of troops you start with. You’ll have to strategize to ensure the finite number of troops you start with can last you the entire round. For example, you don’t want to use up all of your wizards early. You will want the firepower of the wizards when you’re at the last part of the level. Use the book at the bottom of the screen to swap things around before you engage.
When it comes to Clash Quest, it isn’t only about bum-rushing the enemy until you win — there’s always strategy involved in winning each level!
Using Your Spells and Other Tips
Right next to the book, you’ll see a spell you can use in battle when you want to do some massive damage to the enemy defense. If you’ve survived the first wave of defense, then doing considerable damage to the second wave of defense will ensure you have a healthy number of troops for the last part of the level.
Another tip when progressing your way through the level is watching the numbers next to each unit. Once the unit reaches “1” it is ready to unleash its defensive attacks. There’s a chance you’ll reach the last part of the level with a good majority of your troops left if you’re smart (or lucky). If you have enough wizards, you may be able to take out the last part of the level with one volley of spells if you use a chain attack to power up your troops. To get a good chain attack with wizards, you’ll want to make sure they’re lined up together. That’s why, if you look at any Clash Quest upgrade priority list, you’ll see the Wizards are the absolute first unit you want to upgrade.
Getting Gold and More Spells
You get nominal gold during your battles by defeating enemy units, and you’ll get a handful more once you finish a level.
When you’re ready to move on to the next level, you should first look at whether you have the gold to upgrade your troops. If you’re able to upgrade your troops, then you should to avoid getting completely slaughtered by the next tower defense.
Hang in There!
Much like any mobile game, you’re going to build confidence by breezing through the first couple of levels. You might go into the later levels thinking you can keep up this degree of domination. However, every mobile game is designed to get progressively harder to the point where it may seem impossible to beat a level.
What’s worse is you can’t keep pounding the pavement and playing for hours on end. You only get 12 tries to play. This limit is put in place so players will eventually get frustrated enough to want to spend money on the game.
The game will continue to get harder from there, but that doesn’t mean you will only have to pound your head against the wall and eventually quit the game. If you find yourself getting frustrated, go back to earlier levels and grind it out a bit. You’re not going to get mountains of gold, but if you don’t want to spend real-life money on Clash Quest, then that’s really the only way you’re going to get the gold besides getting the daily bonuses. That’s why you should always check your daily bonuses for gold.
If you follow these beginner tips and tricks, you should have no problem getting through Clash Quest. It is a good change of pace for those who want to take a break from the chaotic gameplay of Clash of Clans or Clash Mini. Spend your energy wisely, upgrade your troops, and tighten down your strategic approach, and you’ll do well!
