- Collect rangers & level up
You can collect two new Rangers in two ways. At the end of each level, you will be given a roulette chance where you can win coins, bonuses or a new ranger. Alternatively, you can play the Gacha machine which has several tiers to get different level rangers. You can also buy Rubies through in-game purchases.
When you Combine rangers, ranger stats will increase. To get best results, combine the base ranger with the same type of ranger E.g.” Cony” with “Cony.” You can also upgrade your tower and units at each level, and increase mineral production/level to deploy more rangers at a faster rate during battle.
- Build a strategic team
A balanced team will make battles easier. Every ranger’s profile will show which of the five categories they belong to:
Health: High HP
Splash: Quick movement & attack
Balance: Obtains the “average” of the other teammates’ total stats
Speed: Attacks multiple enemies simultaneously
Attack: High damage
Each level also has different enemies. Learning their stats can help you put together a better team of rangers to defeat them in battle.
- Pick your Friends, sidekicks & power-ups wisely
Before each battle, you are given the option to summon Friends or sidekicks, and buy power-ups. Friends can only be summoned once in every 12 hours, while sidekicks and power-ups require coins.
In the initial stages, it is better to use less sidekick or power-ups and summon lower-level Friends so that you can get a better feel of the game and develop your strategy without relying too much on them.
You can better spend your coins on power-ups and upgrades as you level up where battles become increasingly difficult.
Use these tips to develop your battle style and rescue Sally.
