Starting army in "King's Bounty: Legions"

Useful Tips for Beginners

Save diamonds

Try to save diamonds and don't spend them on any items, creatures and auras. At least at the beginning, since they are hard to come by. If you need more, you will have to save them for long time or buy them with real money. Later, you will use them to get new armies that you can't get normally. If you spend diamonds, I suggest you spend them only for legendary units at special discounts. Other nice thing to buy is royal aura.

Try to do all quests

Don't just rush the main quest storyline, but also do all the side quests that will give you additional creatures. Some quests are daily and can be repeated every day. Do them for gold, creatures and items.

Pay attention to NPC monster level

Every NPC pack has number with their average level that is also colored. If they are red, they are much stronger than you. Gray packs won't give you any XP (but gray quests will).

Best creatures for PvE

I like to use units that have lots of hp, so I don't need to heal them so often and spend stamina and gold. My army usually consists of one high hp tank (defender) and 3 ranged units (mages, healers, archers). I fill 5th slot depending on enemy, most often with additional defender.

A good starting tank is knight that can be later replaced with Paladins, Ents ... My ranged units are also those with higher hp, such as alchemists, inventors, gunners. Another must have for me are pilgrims, that have free heal for my tank (just don't use heal on low hp units).

After level 20 or so, even high hp defenders will start to die. Instead of them I sometimes switch to some common unit, that is cheap to revive.

Use spells smartly

Try to save spells at the beginnings, since they cost money. I suggest you use them more after level 10, to save your army from dying. I mostly use heal and fire arrow, that are cheap. For example heal that costs 200g will save you 450g if you prevent one Ent from dying, as reviving it costs 650g. Also try to upgrade heal spell, when you have more gold.

Reviving units

Reviving no longer costs stamina, so new users can progress faster. If you don't want to revive units after every fight, you can buy more units that is your leadership limit.

Use Patrol

Patrol will give you small amount of gold and XP. With recent changes, patrol can be used even while playing, so whenever you can, put units on patrol, then close patrol window and continue playing. Just remember that you collect patrol rewards after it's over (as there isn't any message for completion).

Trick here is to also consider which area are you patrolling. Lower level (gray) areas won't give you any xp for fights, while higher level will have hard fights that you might not win (although you will get all the gold from patrol), so no XP again.

You should start patrol even if you intend to interrupt it after half an hour, as you will still get something, while just waiting for stamina to replenish will give you nothing.

Make friends

Having friends will allow you to advance quicker although it's not really necessary.

Advantages:

  • Each day you can send 20 gifts to friends that will give them some gold (and they can return gifts to you).
  • Friends can send you basic resources (if you send resources you get 300 gold for helping, while you don't really loose any resources you have).
  • You need friends to start wanted quests that give you more powerful creatures (or you can buy them with diamonds).
  • Each friend has a spell you can use for free in battle once a day (max 3 spells per battle).
  • You can do friendly PVP match where you won't lose any units and will give you some gold if you win (once a day).

If you want a friend to help you can add me anytime.

Good PVP Units in King's Bounty Legions

I left PVP section for last, since I didn't have much experience with dueling till now. Dueling at lower levels can be risky as not many people duel under level 20, so you can get matched with higher levels, that can kill you fast. If you want to try it before go ahead, you can flee if you encounter godly opponent.

There are many good setups that work for duels, although most seems to evolve around one or two ranged units, warriors and fast defenders.

I mostly PVP with common units, that are cheap to heal. Since I mostly upgraded kingdom units I use for doing quests, my army mostly consist of:

  • Archers: Nice ranged with some utility (slow) against common units
  • Pilgrims: Nothing special, but they are at level 7 now. I will probably switch them for Druids once I level them.
  • Pirate: These are really fast and can crit hard.
  • Young Fairies: No enemy retaliation. Beat that!
  • Possessed Bears: Common defenders that hit hard with Fury.

So far this army can stand ground to ordinary players, though all common army is at disadvantage against players, that have powerful legendary units. But I even beat some more powerfull players with clever strategy.
