Saint Seiya Awakening is an action and strategy game with turn-based combat. It is based on the famous Knights of the Zodiac series. It features lots of content, great graphics, and fun mechanics to learn, though it can be confusing for new players! For this reason, we have put together some important tips to understand and progress well in Saint Seiya Awakening .
Improve your basic knowledge of the game and turn your team into the best legion of knights!
Advance in Story mode
Saint Seiya Awakening has a very fun and competitive online PvP (player versus player) mode. This is why some players leave Story mode aside, a mistake you shouldn’t make.
For one thing, the game’s Story mode is entirely based on the original anime, which is perfect if you’re a fan. On the other hand, progressing in this mode is a great way to gain experience, gold, and other items needed to upgrade your knights. As you progress through the plot, new features will also be unlocked in the game. And believe us, there are many!
Build a good team at Saint Seiya Awakening
One of the first things you will discover in Saint Seiya Awakening is that knights are divided into rank S, A, B, etc. That is an indicator of the character’s strength. It is obvious that the best thing is to be able to form a team made up only of golden knights, that is, S rank, but it is not always possible!
Your team at Saint Seiya Awakening can have up to 6 knights . Initially you can only have 4, but you will unlock more slots at levels 13 and 18. Each one has its own characteristics and attributes that make them better or worse in different situations. Some are useful as support; others are damage to a single or multiple targets. The most important thing is to understand how each character contributes to your team.
Another interesting point is the synergy mechanics. Through it, some characters get bonuses when they are together in the formation. An example is Seiya and Shiryu for a combined normal attack. To discover these synergies, go to the Development> Improve> Link menu .
A good strategy you can carry out is to first get a golden knight, and then assemble a team with him as a base. This will make it easier for you to choose the rest of the characters to complement the skills in the best way. It goes without saying that you will need several tests to find the correct combination, but it is a good start!
Learn Saint Seiya Awakening Combat Mechanics
Saint Seiya Awakening matches take place in turns. Each character has his attack turn, and the order depends on the speed of each one. Knights also have unique abilities, but to use them, you must expend a specific amount of equipment energy.
With that in mind, it is crucial to look at the knights’ attack order, abilities, and their costs. Managing team energy is important as you never want your best knight to run out of energy. Otherwise, you won’t be able to use your ability! To avoid that, simply do basic attacks with the other knights.
Fortunately, team energy resets every time all of your knights have spent their turn.
Automatic mode and manual mode
Saint Seiya Awakening has an automatic combat mode, in which the knights choose for themselves what they are going to do. Don’t use this feature , of course. In addition to not managing energy in the best way, there will be no way to choose attacks or abilities.
Enhance Saint Seiya Awakening Knights
One of the most important aspects of Saint Seiya Awakening is the development of your knights. Although the game is fairly easy at first, the fighting will become considerably difficult as the story progresses. Sooner or later the need to improve your characters will arise.
In the “Development” menu, you can find all the ways to evolve each knight:
- Level up
- Seventh sense
You will level up using the Knight EXP Potions you receive in Story Mode or in Epic Ruins. When you first go up to level 20 with a character, development will stagnate but the Rebirth option will be unlocked.
To be reborn, you will need to sacrifice other knights who have the same star level and pay a specific amount of gold . Whenever a knight is reborn, the attributes and max level will increase. So whenever you can, reborn your knight!
The Seventh Sense option is used to unlock an extra ability . Before you can do that, you will have to open six slots using gold, seventh sense stones and awakening stones. These two types of stones are obtained only by overcoming phases in Dimension, or buying in the Legion Market. Once you open all six slots, you will finally unlock the ability.
Finally, in the Skill section you can improve all the skills of your knights. To do this, you will need identical copies of the character and it can be evolved up to a maximum of 5 times. Each upgrade will require an additional copy to complete. Therefore, every time you get a repeat knight, take advantage of it to maximize skills!
Participate in Events and complete daily missions
One of the great advantages of Saint Seiya Awakening is that you don’t need to spend real money, although you will obviously advance faster if you pay. Most of the game’s great rewards can be collected from the Daily menu. There you will see Evidence of Athena, Treasure of the Great Patriarch, among others, each one juicy prizes that you can accumulate up to a certain daily limit.
Pay special attention to the Training Camp. In addition to recovering Vigor, the resources you use to play in almost any Saint Seiya Awakening mode , this activity allows you to raise the daily limit that we mentioned above.
Apart from these activities, the game also has temporary events that you can access in the Event menu, located in the upper right part of the main menu. You will receive countless rewards for participating in and completing these events.
Form and participate in Legion
In Saint Seiya Awakening you can be part of a Legion, which is basically a clan or club. You will be in a group of players with whom you can get together to play modes and complete missions. Playing in Legion modes will guarantee you unique and very valuable rewards. Plus, it’s always better in the company!
Another great advantage of interacting with other players is sending and receiving Vigor . That is definitely very important, especially if you know you won’t be playing much on a specific day. And don’t worry if you don’t have any friends or acquaintances in the game. An own menu will be unlocked where you can join the ranks of an already created Legion. Just select the one you prefer, and you’ll be one more in the Legion!
Save Diamonds to Summon Saint Seiya Awakening Knights
One of the activities that will most capture your attention in the game is the summoning of knights. It is located in the Summon menu and in it, you can unlock new characters. For that, you will need to use different types of diamonds.
There are four ways to summon new knights:
- Thematic invocation
Always save your diamonds for Advanced and Thematic Summon modes , as both will give you a better chance of getting rank A or S knights. To ensure your success, look in the lower left corner.
Depending on the day, you will see that one of these three phrases will be written in red: Fortunate, Most fortunate and The most fortunate. That will define the luck of obtaining stronger knights. For this reason, our advice is to wait for him to put The Luckiest , and then spend your diamonds. Never at any other time!
