Dragon Ball Legends Guide

Story Mode Guide; why to play and how to play like a pro!

Dragon Ball LegendsAs stated above, at the beginning of the game, story mode is the only mode you can play. The story mode is divided into chapters; completing a chapter reward you crystals, souls, Zeni, Z points, and much more.

On the main screen -> tap on the story icon -> choose “select story” or “newest chapter”; to repeat choose “select story”, to play new chapter, choose “newest chapter”. Here are some tips to play story mode like a pro!

Before you start the chapter, go to challenges tab and check out the challenges; complete these challenges in the first turn to get free rewards such as crystal, Zeni, souls, and much more.

And most important; you earn character EXP. Character EXP is required to level up a character. Only those characters will get EXP who are in your party. To edit the party, go to menu ->characters -> edit -> select the characters. You can select up to six characters. And you can create seven parties with different character combination. Before the battle starts, you can select any one of these seven parties.

Characters Guide ->

Dragon Ball Legends game features dozens of characters. You can check the complete list in the menu -> characters -> character list.

Elements of characters: –

  • Support
  • Defense
  • Melee
  • Ranged

Tap on a character to check its battle style. For instance; Krillin is a defense type character, Shallot is of melee type, Goku(extreme); melee, Super Saiyan Goku; ranged type, Tao; support type.

You can take advantage by choosing the characters on the basis of elements; here’s how: –

  • Red element > Yellow element
  • Yellow > Purple
  • Purple > Green
  • Green > Blue
  • Blue > Red

For instance; check the enemy character’s element; if it’s red, then choose blue element character. If it’s yellow, then choose red element character. Go to characters section -> hold down on a character and check its element.

How to unlock characters in Dragon Ball Legends?

It’s very simple. Go to menu -> summon -> choose “single summon” or “consecutive summon”. Get the character shards. Consecutive summon is best; you will definitely get an extreme or sparking character[initially].

Limit-Break – How to add stars to characters in DB Legends game

You can add stars to your characters using limit-break. All you need to do is gain enough Z power. For instance; I have Goku(hero). Now, to limit-break Goku or add a star to Goku, I need Z power(Goku). How to get? Use summon feature. Why is limit-break important? Because it increases the power of your character.

What is friendship level?

You can earn friendship points by playing the game; just select those characters. You can teach Shallot “Special Move” or get item reward by getting friendship points.

Soul Boosts – Guide

There are many types of souls; red, blue, yellow, super souls, and more. You use these souls to increase the stats of your characters. For instance, I want to increase “defense” stats of my character “Super Saiyan Goku”. And for this, I need souls.

How to obtain souls in DB Legends game?

Play story mode, repeat the chapters and earn souls. Play PvP mode and earn medals. Use medals in exchange shop to get souls; red, blue, yellow, super souls, and more.

How To Soul Boost?

Dragon Ball LegendsGo to the menu of the game -> characters -> choose soul boost. Select a character and confirm. After it, you will see this screen: –

Tap on a boost(i.e. health, strike attack, blast attack, blast defense, or more) and then tap on OK. Spend souls and Zeni to increase your stats.

What is this?

  • Health -> To increase character’s health/HP
  • Strike Attack -> Increase the deal damage; when you use strike attack card in the battle
  • Blast Attack -> Increase the deal damage; when you use blast attack card in the battle
  • Strike Defense -> Increase your defense when you hit by enemy strike card
  • Blast Defense -> Increase your defense when you hit by enemy’s blast defense card

What is class-up in Dragon Ball Legends?

When you unlock the ten tiles(i.e. strike, blast, health, and more), class up feature gets unlocked(see the above picture). When you class up a character, that character will get bonuses. You can class up a character when the character reaches level 300. Read Dragon Ball Legends cheats, tips, strategy below to learn how to level up fast.

Dragon Ball Legends Tips, Cheats & Strategy

1.) Start working on building the best party

In Dragon Ball Legends, your main task is to build the best party. At the beginning of the game, you have thousands of crystals. Go to menu -> summon -> spend your crystals and summon characters.

If you use consecutive summon, you will definitely get one or two rare characters; extreme or sparking. I got Super Saiyan Goku, Nappa, Pan, Raditz by using my free crystals.

It would be better if you summon characters instantly when you start the game. You just have to focus on your “six” best characters. However, in PvP Mode, you can select up to 3 best characters.

Don’t spend your in-game items in developing all the characters you have. Just focus on six characters; Shallot, Super Saiyan Goku, and rest 4 more[as per your choice; extreme, sparking].

When you start the game, follow this process;

  • Summon characters and build the party of best characters; Shallot, and 5 characters[extreme, sparking].
  • Start story mode and level-up your characters
  • Increase their stats using soul boost, equip them gears, class-up, limit-break
  • Unlock special moves, Z-ability[Upgrade it by limit-break]

Best Characters In Dragon Ball Legends Game: –

  • Super Saiyan Goku, Type – Sparking
  • Vegeta, Type – Sparking
  • Piccolo, Type – Sparking
  • Pan, Type – Sparking
  • Goku, Type – Extreme
  • Mercenary Tao, Type – Extreme
  • Tien, Type – Extreme
  • Raditz, Type – Extreme
  • Nappa, Type – Extreme
  • Shallot, Element – Hero

In Dragon Ball Legends, you can easily unlock all the characters within a week; always choose crystals as your login reward, complete missions and challenges to earn crystals, take part in events.

OK….Update -> After playing a lot, here are some recommendation on best characters in Dragon Ball Legends game[Shallot is not in my team 🙂 ] ->

  • Paikuhan(Sparking) -> Paikuhan (sparking) -> Paikuhan’s figures are very good; Its main potential increases the cost of art card purchases [for enemies]
  • Pan(SP) -> Pan is a support type character and its stats are also good. Pan’s main ability reduces the Ki Restore Speed of the enemy
  • Super Saiyan Goku -> Probably the best character in Dragon Ball Legends game; massive deal damage(reach the level 300 and see his power), amazing stats, Highlights -> “Super Kamehameha”, “Super Dragon Fist” cards
  • Vegeta(Sparking) – I would recommend you to choose “Vegeta” in your party; Vegeta’s blast attack is very powerful and main ability of Vegeta can increase the deal damage by 50%
  • Raditz(Extreme)
  • Piccolo(Sparking) – Piccolo is the best defensive type character in DB Legends game. Why should you add this character to your party? Reason -> Best HP, Strike/Blast Defense, Attack stats. And Its main ability can restore the health of an ally by 25%. MUST HAVE CHARACTER

In my opinion; the best team[DB Legends] would be; Super Saiyan Goku, Piccolo(Sparking), and Vegeta(Sparking). And Best Six Characters: –

  1. Piccolo(SP)
  2. Vegeta(SP)
  3. Super Saiyan Goku(SP)
  4. Pan
  5. Paikuhan(SP)
  6. Raditz(Extreme) or Goku(Extreme).

Reach level 300 as soon as possible and then show your skills in PvP.

2.) How to Level-Up Fast In Dragon Ball Legends game?

It’s very easy. Follow these ways to level-up fast: –

  • Repeat story mode chapters to gain EXP(Requires to level up)
  • Train your characters. Go to menu -> train -> EXP training or Limited Time Training -> select the character and begin training
  • You need training material to start training. Send your low-level characters on the adventure to obtain training material and Zeni. Go to menu -> adventure -> select low-quality characters or those who are not in your party. They will bring the training material for you.

Leveling up = More Power, Class-Up.

3.) Must Use Rising Rush and the Main Ability

Dragon Ball LegendsRising Rush is the powerful attack in Dragon Ball Legends game. And if you are playing PvP mode, it would be better to activate it as soon as possible and use at the right time. Additionally, you should also use the main ability of your character in the battle to get bonus advantage.
