"Saint Seiya Awakening": Beginner's Guide
Saint Seiya Awakening is an official mobile game based on the universe of the manga Saint Seiya, created by Masami Kurumada (1986), even if you are not familiar with the Saint Seiya manga or anime, I would strongly recommend you to give this game a try, as I can objectively say, its the best mobile game I have played so far, the graphics are beautiful, the soundtrack is awesome (original from the anime) and the mechanics of the gameplay are pretty well designed, very strategy and tactics oriented.
This beginner's guide will help you make the most of your resources and assemble a powerful team faster, so you can get playing.
1. Complete All of the Daily Quests and Events
Complete all the daily quest and events, especially the ones that reward you with diamonds, like the daily training, participate five times in the arena—three times in the galactic duel, mystical treasure, training hall, etc. Diamonds are the most valuable currency in the game, and you will require a lot of them to progress faster.
2. Manage Your Diamonds Wisely
As I mentioned before, diamonds are the most valuable currency in the game, you can buy a lot of useful items with them, but I recommend you to save all your diamonds to buy only "Advanced Gem Packs," that provides you with 11 Advanced gems for the price of 10, Advanced Gems are used to summon random saints from B to "S" rank, this means these gems are the only chance for you to get a Saint rank S.
It is ok to occasionally buy stamina, especially if there is a quest that requires you to do it, but the main goal of your diamonds should always be to buy "Advanced Gem Packs," You can find this pack at the mall in the "Item" label.
Note: the first 20 advanced gems you use will guarantee a random Saint rank S, after that, the chances of getting one will decrease drastically.
3. Save your Advanced Gems for the Fortune Cat Event
Advanced gems provide you with the opportunity to get a Saint rank S or above, but the chance to get these saints it is minimal, so you will probably require a lot of advanced gems to get Saints rank S, so is always a good idea to save all the advanced gems to multiply them in the "Fortune Cat" event.
The Fortune Cat event works like this, using the cat will cost a number of advanced gems, but will give you a random amount of advanced gems higher than the cost, for instance, the first try will cost 30 advanced gems and the reward can be between 31 and 48 advanced gems, the second try will cost more but the reward increases as well and so on, this means, the more AG you save for this event, the more you will get.
The Fortune Cat event occurs once per month.
4. Complete the Advanced Pope's Treasure Every Day
There are two types of Pope's Treasure, the common and the advanced, you will get common treasure maps doing daily quest and events, these treasures will guarantee 10 stamina as a reward plus some other random items like Saint Shards, Gold, Diamonds, and material to create advanced Pope's Treasure maps. Usually, creating an advanced pope's treasure map will require you to use a lot of common maps, this could happen in several days, the advanced Pope's Treasure maps rewards are greater, including advanced gems, a larger amount of diamonds, a large amount of experience, Growth and Skill tome shards, and more.
Many players, particularly new ones, don't realize they can obtain the advanced Pope's Treasure rewards every day, since this event can be done with the help of other players (you have to defeat the guardians), you can always join other players, looking at the party section at the left side of your screen, click "Party Lobby" then go to "Pope's Treasure" at the left side and then join any other player waiting for help. If there are no players waiting, just keep refreshing until someone appears.
5. Do not Waste your Skill Tomes
You can level up the skill saints using copies of the same saint, "skill tomes" can be used to level up skill of any saint and are very valuable and hard to obtain. Do not use this tomes to enhance skills of saint rank B or A, save them only for saints rank S or SS, since obtaining copies of saints of these ranks is extremly unlikely, moreover, do not rush and waste all your skill tomes in the first saint rank S you got, if is not a useful saint for the formation you are planning to build.
6. Recommended Saints for New Players
There are many combinations, tactics and synergies in this game, as there are many saints, you will have to decide your final formation but I will show you below, some saints from rank B to A that are useful no matter what, you can safely invest resources in these saints as they can be helpuful either on PVE, PVP or both. Some of them are even mandatory to progress throught the main campaing and some other events.
