Sword Master Story Guide & Tips⇓

This Sword Master Story guide covers the info on game modes, guild, team building, equipment, and other aspects such as tips to get stronger, and much more. So, let’s proceed to the Sword Master Story guide & tips: – 

Complete guide to game modes⇓

The four main game modes in this game are Adventure, PvP, Battle Dungeons, and the Raid mode. You will unlock most of the content in the game by clearing the adventure mode stage 100. There are many stages in the Adventure mode and each one challenges you to become more powerful and beat the bosses and their minions. In PvP mode, you will challenge other players; you can set up the PvP defense in the “organize” menu of the game. Based on the ranking, players get rewards; if you want rubies for free, make sure to climb up in this mode. 

Battle Dungeons – here you can farm the in-game items such as EXP potions, gold, equipment, accessories, and Awakening Cube. You will need EXP potions to level up the heroes. Gold will be used as a cost. Equipment and accessory strengthen the character’s base stats – ultimately improving the performance in the fights. Awakening cubes are needed to develop the character’s skills. 

In Raid Mode, you fight a powerful enemy and based on the DMG that you inflict to it, the game gives you rewards. If you are in a guild, you will get a bonus guild ranking reward. As a normal reward, you get normal items and if you have luck points, the game might give you free character shards. In the lower-left corner, you can check the luck gauge. In Sword Master Story, you gain luck points through adventure and battle activities. 

Join a Guild⇓

Make sure to join a guild in Sword Master Story. You can claim extra rewards by being a member of a guild. The higher the guild level, the more rewards, and bonuses you will get. We recommend to join an active guild; you can contact other players through Sword Master Story communities such as Reddit, FB, and look for the active guild. The links to the Reddit and FB group are given below. 

Organizing team⇓

To set up the team, head to the main lobby. Tap the “organize” button in the lower-left corner -> tap load icon -> select a character -> tap organize to select the character or replace the character in the team. We recommend organizing a team that should have a healer, DMG dealers, and tanky warriors. To check the best team recommendations, head to the PvP menu -> check the top players’ team compositions. 

While building the team, make sure to consider the characters’ abilities; passive and active. 

⇒Don’t invest in useless characters: check the Sword Master Story tier list above to figure out the best characters in the game. Don’t invest resources to develop the characters that are useless. 

Sword Master Story Tips to get stronger⇓

To get stronger in the Sword Master Story, you will need to keep strengthening the heroes that are in the team. (DO NOT WASTE RESOURCES ON USELESS CHARACTERS) Go to the characters menu. Select a character -> level up using EXP potions, develop skills using the awakening cube, reinforce using gold. Tap the + button -> auto equip the equipment and accessory. Tap the transcend button from the + option -> if you have enough character shards, you can transcend the character and raise its potential to the next level. 

How To Get Equipment⇓

You can farm top-tier equipment from the high-level PvE Adventure stages, 5-star summons, or dark dungeons. 

Other Info⇓

(1) Complete the quests to earn rubies. 

(2) Redeem these Sword Master Story coupon codes

(3.) Character shards can be obtained from the Raid mode or summon. 

(4) Players can enhance the equipment and accessories too. But don’t invest in low-tier equipment; the higher the star level, the higher its value. Tap the bag option in the upper-right corner. This will open the bag menu with a series of tabs in rows; go to the equipment tab -> select equipment -> if you have enough shards, you can transcend it.

Tap the reinforce button to use scrolls and gold and level it up. Tap the refine button -> refinement -> refinement gives new options to the gear; you need to use this feature carefully.

There are four types of refinement; premium, rare, normal, and additional. The chances to grade up the gear is higher through premium refinement as compared to rare and normal. Please check the current gear options(stats) before refining. If you are happy with the current options, no need to refine! To check the options of the gear, go-to bag -> gear tab -> select the gear -> check the options on the right side. 

So this would be all in this post on Sword Master Story guide and tips for beginners. 

Sword Master Story Guide To Rebirth

How do you rebirth in Sword Master Story? And what’s rebirth? 

  • To rebirth a unit, you need to max out that unit’s reinforcement; initially, it’s capped to 200. Go to characters -> select a character -> reinforce; spend gold and max it out to 200
  • After that, you can rebirth
  • If you rebirth a unit, it will return to level 0 and you will get the resources back; and it will increase the reinforce level by 1(from max 200 to new max 201). This way you can increase the reinforcement max level cap and raise the unit’s power further.

  1. Personally, I think that Efreet deserves to be put in S+ tier because I have her 1 red star, 1 of her basic attacks does 5,000,000 damage.

  2. i come and know to this game through Danmachi ad on youtube. and i’m pretty new to this game and my biggest concern right now is does Danmachi characters are limit ? and if they limit will their banner will comeback cuz i just played for like 2 days and now i’m afraid that i might miss some collab chars

    • Updated today, added in A tier placeholder. She is overall good, but not the best. She can do well in adventure, abyss(As a support), guild territory.
      She is not good in PvP

  3. Aqua is an S tier support.
    When you’re in level 10 of demon tower and the boss 1 shots you in 3 seconds or less, do you give a s*** about that extra heal Yui has? No, you want +50% crit and +150% crit damage so aqua can boost Megu + Kana in to dumping ass on the boss so hard it dies in 1 shot.

    At least, that’s how I cleared that floor.
    Dark lord / Megu / Aqua / Kana

    • On that note, the best team in Swordmaster for those joining now, is:

      (Cain)/Aqua/Dark Lord/Odin/Kana
      That’s right, that’s the best general team. Aqua is free after 7 days right now, and Kana is hands down the best overall content clearing waifu in the game.

      Yui: Swap aqua for Yui in a scenario where you aren’t 1 shotting a boss and you need to sustain Kana’s life for additional dps.

      Megumeme: Use her when you need to 1 shot a boss, Odin and Dark Lord are both support dps, so swap either based on preference or element. Odin has +30% atk boost for megu + Kana combo, and dark lord gives +45% crit damage and Megu always crits. That means the team becomes Cain/Aqua/Megumeme/Kana/ Dark lord OR Odin OR Athena (worst case, buffs aqua, free 7 day unit)

      Bael: She’s used for Slasher, replace a support spot with her.

      Cayron: B-tier is a joke and the poster doesn’t know s***. Clearly. Cayron is A-tier because in demon tower alone she can solo a floor, and in non-story content she has so much raw attack power that in a scenario where the boss is fire immune i’ll swap Kana to Cayron and my dps will only drop like 5-10%. Don’t sleep on this centaur.

    • Hestia Rank C ?, plays a great role in defending the team from Boss with AoE damage, Buff defending the team with his own presence and further enhancing the ability to make his team not die to a stupid strong boss, a Yui n will be able to defend a team forever alone with its healing if the enemy has killed all the characters on his team together
