Fruits are essential items in Roblox Pixel Piece, helping you acquire new skills once consumed. Though you may be wondering where to find them, different fruits can be purchased in a single area in the game, and it's relatively easy to find. Our guide will show you how to get fruit in Roblox Pixel Piece.

Where to Find Fruit in Roblox Pixel Piece

Central Port is a small island to the south of Orange Island. You don't need to acquire any levels to get there. Simply purchase the cheapest available boat at the starting island and travel to Central Port.

You'll find three NPCs there, including a Fruit Dealer, Stat Resetter, and Fruit Remover. The Fruit Shop can be found right under the central platform. 

Fruits can also spawn randomly under the trees on all the islands, so be sure to check as many trees as you can since you never know what you may find. But if you want to be sure, then you can purchase the following ones at the shop:

Tower of Fantasy Origin of War Guide https://www.gameskinny.com/xddpv/tower-of-fantasy-origin-of-war-guide https://www.gameskinny.com/xddpv/tower-of-fantasy-origin-of-war-guide Fri, 03 Feb 2023 13:59:26 -0500 John Schutt

The Origin of War is a new activity with the 2.3 update for Tower of Fantasy, adding increasingly difficult endgame content for big rewards for those who've invested the time and energy to get there. You’ll fight consecutive waves of enemies that grow in power the deeper into it you get, with rewards to match. It's not easy, though, and we'll get into how to tackle it right in this guide.

How Origin of War Works in Tower of Fantasy


Image via Hotta Games

You'll need to reach level 80 before you can even start playing Origin of War, so don’t expect to go in the instant you can access the overworld. Being level 80 is no guarantee of success, either. You’ll want to be well about 50,000 CS to make it past even the first few levels, and even then, having both a good healer and top-tier damage is an absolute must.

You’ll access Origin of War via the Challenge section of the Adventure menu, and you can either go in as a pre-made team or be matched with up to three other players.

Because of how challenging the activity is, we recommend going in with a premade group. If you don’t have anyone to play with, send a message in world chat to see if anyone’s around to help, as there is usually someone with the power and experience willing to head in. Unfortunately, there’s only so much even the biggest whales can do to carry at the higher levels, so you will have to do some lifting yourself.

Each level has you facing off against several waves of enemies, and there are 25 levels total. Enemies cannot be staggered and are not affected by Phantasia, and any buffs you have from a previous activity are wiped at the start of a new one. If there’s a heavily-leveled player on your team, the game will automatically adjust which level you start on to compensate.

How Affixes Work in the Origin of War Activity in Tower of Fantasy


Screenshot by GameSkinny

Origin of War introduces a new character buff system similar to Tech from Void Abyss. Called “affixes”, these permanent, customizable improvements can give you an edge that makes more difficult levels more bearable. Most of them have straight damage increases, but others can help with healing and defenses or create a role for you to play on the team.

For instance, you might get an Affix that grants a flat 10% bonus to your Frost damage, while another adds an immunity to Volt damage or another that causes a burst of energy every time you attack.

Affixes start weaker and become incrementally stronger the more you collect and the higher the difficulty you complete. You can have six Affixes equipped at one time but can only swap them out between levels, not during play.

Be aware that some Affixes are unique to a level and cannot be equipped once you clear that level, and it’s possible for Affixes to conflict based on their effect. You’ll need to choose which Affix you want to use in case of a confliction.

What are the Rewards in Origin of War in Tower of Fantasy


Screenshot by GameSkinny

Completing each level of Origin of War awards two types of crafting and upgrade materials, a pile of gold, and one piece of Exoskeleton equipment of increasing rarity. These are one-time rewards and cannot be earned again once claimed. They do, however, reset at the end of the season, as does whatever title you received during.

Despite how hard it is, getting high in Origin of War level will showcase your skills and, more importantly, will equip you with better and better gear while enabling you to easily upgrade it. The Exoskeleton equipment is unique to update 2.3, and you’ll want as many chances at a good one and as many crafting materials as possible. The additional rewards are gravy.

Those are the basics of taking on the new Origin of War mode in Tower of Fantasy. Don’t worry if you fail a few times, and especially don’t worry if you need reviving during the activity. These enemies hit like trucks, and things can get very chaotic very quickly. For more help with the game's content both old and new, check out our Tower of Fantasy guides hub.

Tower of Fantasy Passion for Chocolate Guide https://www.gameskinny.com/ui4qn/tower-of-fantasy-passion-for-chocolate-guide https://www.gameskinny.com/ui4qn/tower-of-fantasy-passion-for-chocolate-guide Fri, 03 Feb 2023 09:59:19 -0500 John Schutt

Tower of Fantasy update 2.3 brings with it a new limited-time event: Passion for Chocolate. Like the Aida Cafe event during the launch of the Artificial Island, Passion for Chocolate sees you creating new foods to pass out to the various major characters of the game.

However, there have been some improvements over the last limited event, with many more necessary ingredients available via password chests rather than received randomly from enemies. The reward structure in Passion for Chocolate is better as well. This guide will explain the event and everything you need to collect to make all the tasty treats.

Passion for Chocolate Ingredients, Rewards, and Sweets List

A number of new, limited ingredients are available only during the Passion for Chocolate event. All of the ingredients are obtainable either by opening password chests or purchasing them from between 2 and 5 Mira at the Chocolatier in the Treasured Guardian section of Mirroria.


Screenshots by GameSkinny

They are:

  • Square Mold: 5 Mira
  • Circular Mold: 5 Mira
  • Heart-shaped Mold: 5 Mira
  • Powdered Sugar: 3 Mira
  • Coffee Beans: 3 Mira
  • Mint: 3 Mira
  • Fresh Cream: 3 Mira
  • Nuts: 3 Mira
  • Liqueur Filling: 3 Mira
  • Cocoa Powder: 2 Mira

Every chocolate recipe uses the above ingredients and those you can find in the vanilla game and throughout the Vera region. Check out our Tower of Fantasy ingredients guide for a complete list of standard ingredients.

All Gifts in the Passion for Chocolate Limited Event

Once you have your ingredients, go into the Passion for Chocolate screen via the Rewards menu. You'll need to provide the customer with three chocolatey gifts. Giving them the right gifts will award the maximum number of Crush points. For the best gifts for each character, check out our best gifts guide.

50 Crush

1,000 Crush

  • 1 Gold Nucleus
  • 400 Energy Crystal Dust

Realistically, you only need to reach 600 Crush points for the Red Nucleus, as the additional rewards — even the Gold Nucleus at 1,000 — are more throwaway materials; they're easy to come by outside of events. Depending on how much ingredient farming you want, 600 could very well be the limit of your reserves. Or patience, whichever comes first.

With that, you have the tools and ingredients to make the most of the Passion for Chocolate event in Tower of Fantasy. If you're looking for more coverage, we've got you covered. Our ToF guides hub has plenty to look through.

How to Beat Holy Forbidden in Vampire Survivors https://www.gameskinny.com/9gmwc/how-to-beat-holy-forbidden-in-vampire-survivors https://www.gameskinny.com/9gmwc/how-to-beat-holy-forbidden-in-vampire-survivors Fri, 13 Jan 2023 14:04:44 -0500 Iya Paterno

In Vampire Survivors, you need to fight waves and waves of enemies to survive the longest you can, with stages culminating in boss fights. The enemies get more challenging as you progress, so you need to rely on some buffs you get through each round. Finding hidden items helps you survive longer and beat the game. One of those is locked in Holy Forbidden, and if you're here, you're wondering how to beat it.

A hidden stage in Vampire Survivors, Holy Forbidden rewards you with the Yellow Sign Relic once you beat it. This relic comes in handy when detecting Hidden Items in all of the stages. In this guide, we'll tell you all you need to know about beating this hidden stage in Vampire Survivors to get the Yellow Sign Relic.

Tips For Defeating Holy Forbidden in Vampire Survivors

Screenshot by GameSkinny

If we could give only one tip to help you beat Holy Forbidden, we highly recommend that you do one thing: Run. This stage features a map that is unlike any other in the game. It forces you to just sprint for your life to the right through a linear path.

If you tackle this stage blindly, you can easily lose. You can always try again, though, but make sure you come equipped after to seize victory (and the Yellow Sign Relic) the soonest you can. Pausing is not allowed in this stage, and enemies' attacks will crush you, so it's better to dodge and run to survive it. Here are our tips for you to do so efficiently:

  • Pick a character with a high "Movespeed" stat. You cannot afford to have a slow runner in this stage.
  • Destroy as many light sources as you can to collect Floor Chicken to heal. No matter how well you think you can dodge and run, it is inevitable that you take some damage in this stage so having the ability to heal up when needed is important.
  • Do not pick characters that have randomized attacks like Clerici (Santa Water).
  • Use characters that have directional attacks like Gennaro, who has his Knife, or Antonio with a Whip.
  • We know we said healing is important, but so is running. In this case, never return for a chicken if you missed it by a hair, especially if it's near a wave of enemies.

When you reach a sea of Stained Glass, you'll find the Yellow Sign Relic. Once collected, this stage will be completed and will be permanently inaccessible.

What Characters Should I Use to Reach Holy Forbidden?

You can use characters that can help you beat Moongolow but will not give you access to Holy Forbidden. To make sure you reach the hidden stage, only use standard characters:

  • Antonio
  • Arca
  • Cavallo
  • Christine
  • Clerici
  • Concetta
  • Divano
  • Dommario
  • Gallo
  • Gennaro
  • Giovanna
  • Imelda
  • Krochi
  • Lama
  • Mortaccio
  • O'Sole
  • Pasqualina
  • Poe
  • Poppea
  • Porta
  • Pugnala
  • Ramba

If you fail to complete Holy Forbidden, you can always restart it from the Stage Selection menu.

How to Unlock Holy Forbidden in Vampire Survivors

To unlock Holy Forbidden in Vampire Survivors, you need to survive the horde on the Moongolow bonus stage for 15 minutes and defeat its boss while using a standard character. If you haven't unlocked Moongolow yet, simply unlock Hyper Mode in four stages.

Defeating the boss in this bonus stage transports you to the hidden stage Holy Forbidden. You can complete Moonglow several times but getting transported to Holy Forbidden only happens the first time you beat the boss.

Now that you know how to beat Holy Forbidden and have the Yello Sign Relic, you'll be better equipped to find hidden items in other areas of the game.

Vampire Survivors: How to Evolve Garlic https://www.gameskinny.com/z5d8v/vampire-survivors-how-to-evolve-garlic https://www.gameskinny.com/z5d8v/vampire-survivors-how-to-evolve-garlic Fri, 13 Jan 2023 12:47:22 -0500 Janzel Sandejas

Though there aren't technically any vampires in Vampire Survivors yet, there are items closely associated with the undead bloodsuckers found in the game. One of those is garlic. It can be a useful item for taking down the game's waves of enemies, and if you're here, it's because you want to know how to evolve garlic so that it's even more powerful. 

What is Garlic in Vampire Survivors?

Garlic is a powerful weapon in Vampire Survivors. You can obtain it by consuming five Floor Chickens and creating an aura of protection around them. The enchanting shield is represented by rotating concentric circles that cause all enemies to be damaged.

Garlic's impressive power can be seen in how it quickly dispatches weak enemies. This means you'll get more experience more quickly, and you'll be able to create space within hordes and waves to survive that much longer or escape. 

To top it all off, its effectiveness doesn't fade over time; swarms of stronger opponents can be dispatched just like their weaker counterparts. With that in mind, garlic is the ultimate enemy debuffing agent for opposing forces. With each hit, enemies lose defense points for knockback and freeze until they reach their maximum vulnerability, leaving them highly vulnerable to any incoming damage!

Garlic provides much-needed crowd control for strategic players in every fight, with +9 Base Damage and a 100% Area of Effect spread across 8 Levels.

Evolving Garlic in Vampire Survivors

  • Step 1: Get Garlic. You can do this by consuming five Floor Chicken or using Poe Ratcho, which gives you access to this weapon immediately.
  • Step 2: Level Garlic to Level 8.
  • Step 3: The Pummarola passive item is required for the third step. Staying alive for 5 minutes as Gennaro Belpaese unlocks it.
  • Step 4: If you still need to do so, you must survive your run for at least 10 minutes before opening a treasure chest from beating one of the larger, mid-boss enemies.
  • Step 5: After opening the chest, you should be able to obtain Soul Eater, Garlic's evolved form.

What is Soul Eater?

Soul Eater is the evolution of Garlic. This weapon creates a black aura around you with a pulsing visual effect that damages all enemies. The Area and Base Damage of Soul Eater have been significantly increased. Its most valuable late-game abilities revolve around debuffs.

Because of the increased knockback, strong enemies that require additional hits to kill will be easier to keep at bay. Some boss enemies can also become highly susceptible to freezing if kept in the circle for a long time. A Soul Eater's aura instantly kills most weak enemies.

And with that, you now know how to evolve Garlic, and why you should, in Vampire Survivors. There's a lot more to the game than just improving one item, and we've got more over on our Vampire Survivors guides page, including the requirements for unlocking every map, the best way to farm gold for Golden Eggs, how to unlock Leda and Toastie, and much more.

Vampire Survivors: How to Farm Gold For Golden Eggs https://www.gameskinny.com/aantf/vampire-survivors-how-to-farm-gold-for-golden-eggs https://www.gameskinny.com/aantf/vampire-survivors-how-to-farm-gold-for-golden-eggs Wed, 11 Jan 2023 11:38:07 -0500 Serhii Patskan

Golden Eggs allow Vampire Survivors players to stack up a lot of stat bonuses. That's why learning how to get as many Golden Eggs as quickly as possible is such an important focus in the popular roguelike.

This guide will tell you how to farm Golden Eggs in Vampire Survivors, which basically means farming gold coins and purchasing Golden Eggs from the Merchant, though there is a bit more minutia to it than just that. 

Golden Egg Farm in Vampire Survivors

The easiest way to get Golden Eggs is to buy them from the Merchant. Though you can buy as many as you want, the problem is that one Golden Egg costs 10,000 gold coins. Once you figure how to quickly farm lots of gold, you will be able to purchase as many Golden Eggs as you want.

The key to farming gold in Vampire Survivors is hidden in the specific build of your character, which will allow you to make the maximum amount of gold in the shortest time.

Gold Farming in Vampire Survivors

Here's a good build type for farming gold, and ultimately Golden Eggs, in Vampire Survivors. If possible, play on The Bone Zone to receive a flat 50% increase in the gold you pick up. 

Best Character: Smith IV

The main reason you need this character is its access to cooldown reduction bonuses. Of course, you need to be able to buy all of their power-ups first.

Some players suggest Queen Sigma as the best gold-farming character, but if you want to farm Golden Eggs, she is ultimately unsuitable, since she is the only character in the game that can't pick up or even buy Golden Eggs.

Best Arcana: Silent Old Sanctuary (XX)

This arcana adds another 40% cooldown reduction bonus to Smith IV, for a total of 90% bonus once you reach Level 124.

Silent Old Sanctuary also increases your might, which is always a welcome addition to any farming build.

Later on, you can pick up Mad Groove (VIII) or Disco of Gold (XV), as your arcanas for even more farming potential.

Best Weapons

Choose Gatti Amari for your main weapon, which scales with all your stat bonuses. It can be obtained by surviving 15 minutes with Giovanna.

For your support weapon, pick Laurel when you can, which is available from the start and increases all your cooldown effects.

Best Passive Items

The most important passive item for this build is Empty Tome, which reduces the cooldown of all your weapons. It can be unlocked by holding six different weapons.

The next is Attractorb, which increases your Magnet stat, experience gain, and your range of pick ups. It is unlocked after finding a Vacuum item at Level 12.

You will also need Stone Mask, which increases your Greed stat by 10%. You can find it in the Inlaid Library during stage two.

With this build, you can easily make up to 300,000 gold coins in about half an hour in The Bone Zone or Moongolow, which equals 30 Golden Eggs.

Vampire Survivors: How to Unlock Leda https://www.gameskinny.com/zvj82/vampire-survivors-how-to-unlock-leda https://www.gameskinny.com/zvj82/vampire-survivors-how-to-unlock-leda Tue, 10 Jan 2023 10:32:08 -0500 Serhii Patskan

Leda is typically encountered as a secret boss in Vampire Survivors, but you'll be able to unlock her as a playable character once you've defeated her. It's worth doing, as Leda has a Holy Wand and some great stats.

Our guide will provide you with tips on how to unlock Leda in Vampire Survivors, as both the secret boss and a playable character.

Unlock Leda as a Secret Boss

Leda can be encountered in the fourth stage "Gallo Tower", which can be unlocked after you reach Level 60 in Dairy Plant.

Leda can be seen in the basement of Gallo Tower, about 32 to 40 tilesets below. There are no waves or events prior to fighting Leda, and she spawns naturally once you get there.

Here are the most important tips that will help you defeat Leda as a boss:

  • Leda's main advantages are her HP (88,880), which she has in abundance, and her damage (50+). But her main disadvantage is low speed of movement, which you can use against her.
  • Leda is immune to the following effects: Knockback, Freeze, Instant Kill, and Debuffs. Don't use spells or weapons with these effects, as they will be mitigated.
  • Try to fight Leda in the Endless mode, or the time limit may prevent you from finishing the job. You can also try Hyper mode, which increases your speed by 75%.
  • If you wish to increase your speed of movement, but you don't want to use Hyper mode, then try to obtain Wings, which increase your speed by 10%.
  • The best way to defeat Leda would be to use Game Killer arcana, which can be unlocked after defeating the final boss of the fifth stage "Capella Magna".

Unlock Leda as a Playable Character

As soon as you defeat Leda as a boss, she will be added to the list of playable characters and can be purchased for 666 gold coins

If you don't want to pay money to unlock Leda, then you can use the Iwillneverletyouforgetaboutme spell at the Forbidden Scrolls of Morbane, which can be found in The Bone Zone.

By default, Leda uses the Holy Wand weapon, which is the evolution of Magic Wand. It is a great weapon for area of effect spells.

Leda also starts with a number of stat bonuses:

  • +5 Armor.
  • -20% Speed.
  • +100% Might.
  • +10% Area.
  • -10% Cooldown.
  • -80% Greed.

Vampire Survivors: How to Get Golden Egg https://www.gameskinny.com/f1dej/vampire-survivors-how-to-get-golden-egg https://www.gameskinny.com/f1dej/vampire-survivors-how-to-get-golden-egg Mon, 09 Jan 2023 09:22:21 -0500 Serhii Patskan

There are several ways in which players can permanently increase their stats in Vampire Survivors. The best one is the Golden Egg, which influences stats by a small margin, but it is stackable, so the results can really add up over time.

Our guide will provide you with tips on how to get Golden Egg in Vampire Hunters, including a full list of effects.

How to Get Golden Eggs in Vampire Survivors

Purchase from the Merchant

The quickest and easiest way to get Golden Egg is to purchase it from the Merchant for 10,000 gold coins. You can buy as many as you want, provided you've got the coin. This guide tells you how to farm gold coins and provides an optimal build

You can meet the Merchant at Moongolow, which is the second bonus stage in the game. It can be accessed after unlocking Hyper Mode on four normal stages.

Another way is to simply cast an Honesty spell, using the Forbidden Scrolls of Morbane in The Bone Zone.

Note that you can force the Merchant to spawn in all other stages as well, if you purchase a Glass Vizard from him for another 10,000 gold coins.

Dropped by Masked Guardians

There are four Atlanteans in Vampire Survivors that guard various stage items. One of them drops a Golden Egg when defeated, but the chance is completely random.

Here is the list of all Masked Guardians and their guarded items:

  • Sun Atlantean (Gold Ring).
  • Moon Atlantean (Silver Ring).
  • City Atlantean (Metaglio Left).
  • Volcano Atlantean (Metaglio Right).

The boss of Moongolow, known as Moongolow Atlantean, also has the chance to drop one Golden Egg after being defeated.

Dropped by The Reaper

The Reaper is another good source of farming Golden Eggs, as this enemy may drop not one but five Golden Eggs at a time.

The Reaper, also known as Death, appears on each stage once the time limit of that specific stage has come to an end. You've likely come across him a fair share of times.

However, in order for this enemy to drop Golden Eggs, players need to defeat him using either Infinite Corridor, which is the evolution of Clock Lancet, or Crimson Shroud, which is the evolution of Laurel.

Golden Egg Effects

A single Golden Egg may influence one of 19 possible stats in the game, using the following algorithm:

  • Max Health: +1
  • Magnet: +0.3
  • Banish: +0.2
  • Skip: +0.2
  • Recovery: +0.1
  • Armor: +0.1
  • Amount: +0.1
  • Revival: +0.1
  • Reroll: +0.1
  • Movement Speed: +1%
  • Might: +1%
  • Projectile Speed: +1%
  • Duration: +1%
  • Area: +1%
  • Luck: +1%
  • Growth: +1%
  • Greed: +1%
  • Curse: +1%
  • Cooldown: -0.5%

That's all you need to know on how to get Golden Egg in Vampire Survivors, and stay tuned for more be sure to check out our Vampire Survivors tips and tricks articles. There, you'll find articles on unlocking Leda as a boss and playable character, getting your hands on the Stone Mask, and our complete evolutions guide, among others.

Tower of Fantasy: How to Fish https://www.gameskinny.com/dfl2h/tower-of-fantasy-how-to-fish https://www.gameskinny.com/dfl2h/tower-of-fantasy-how-to-fish Wed, 28 Dec 2022 10:44:11 -0500 John Schutt

Added in the 2.2 update to Tower of Fantasy, fishing is one of the latest minigames to the gacha game. While its rewards are almost all cosmetic, it's nonetheless a fun grind outside the primary one. How to fish is simple, as is earning fishing reputation and currency. Expect to spend a lot of time fighting fish for the many upgrades available.

How to Fish in Tower of Fantasy

Getting started with fishing is easy. Once in-game, open the main menu, select the Casual node, and then open the Fishing menu on the right.


Screenshot by GameSkinny

Your first order of business is buying a rod and some bait. Select the Store button on the left of the screen, then buy a No Luck green-rarity rod and a few dozen units of Crude Bait. You're limited to 350 units of bait per day, so don't buy it all at once.


Screenshot by GameSkinny

With rod and bait sorted, go to any body of water anywhere in Tower of Fantasy that has them — Asperia, the Artificial Island, Vera, the Confounding Abyss — you name it. You'll see a fish icon on your minimap and large map, and in the world, there will be a shining blue circle on the water, indicating an area ready for fishing.

In the Fishing menu, select the fishing rod button at the bottom left to prepare, then move the lure into or immediately around the glowing circle. Place your lure anywhere else, and you'll be unable to fish. Press the new fishing rod button in the bottom right of your screen to cast your line.

Fish will start swimming up to your lure, and once hooked, the minigame starts. A long blue bar will appear at the top of your screen, with a smaller orange bar inside. Your task is to keep your white marker (the smallest and brightest white bar that starts in the middle of the larger blue bar) within the orange bar until the fish's Endurance is spent.


Screenshot by GameSkinny

Once a fish's Endurance reaches zero, press the rod button at the bottom right again to catch it. Note that your fishing line has Endurance, starting at only 30 for the No Luck rod. Your line endurance is essentially a timer. It degrades one every second and snap when it reaches zero, ending the minigame.

What to Do with Fish in Tower of Fantasy


Screenshot by GameSkinny

There are two uses for fish you catch. The first is to take them to your apartment in Mirroria and display them in the aquarium. Be aware that only fish you've caught that day are transferable. If they're in any of the other parts of your backpack, they're too old to put in the aquarium.

You can also sell any fish you catch to sell for Fish Price currency, which, as you level up, you'll use to buy better bait, better rods, and, once you have everything (a tall order considering the best items cost in the hundreds of thousands of currency units), upgrade materials.


Screenshot by GameSkinny

Fish prices fluctuate daily, and the Info screen shows which fish you should be hunting for, specifically the ones with an increased value. You can also see where to find each fish in the Info screen, with the ability to mark their locations on your HUD if you're in their zone.

Catching a fish for the first time also unlocks it in the Gallery, and you can claim a small amount of Dark Crystal depending on the rarity of the fish. You'll then use the gallery to learn which fish is where and how big your records were.

That's about all there is to know about fishing in Tower of Fantasy. It's not the most immediately rewarding part of the game, but it's not meant to be, and it's marked as "Casual" for a reason. Try fishing if you need a break from adventuring and want to chill out a little. For more guides on Tower of Fantasy, our guides hub has plenty.

Genshin Impact TCG: Genius Invokation — Best Decks Tier List https://www.gameskinny.com/6cbnc/genshin-impact-tcg-genius-invokation-best-decks-tier-list https://www.gameskinny.com/6cbnc/genshin-impact-tcg-genius-invokation-best-decks-tier-list Tue, 20 Dec 2022 10:08:08 -0500 Serhii Patskan

There's enough complexity in Genshin Impact's new Genius Invokation card game that you can put some real thought towards building a deck. As it stands, the most effective decks are those with quick and high damage.

Our guide will provide you with a tier list of the best decks in Genshin Impact TCG: Genius Invokation.

S-Tier Deck

Mona Omni Geo Deck

         

Character Cards

  • Mona.
  • Ningguang.
  • Noelle.

Action Cards

  • Elemental Resonance: Woven Stone 2x
  • I Haven't Lost Yet! 2x
  • Jade Chamber 2x
  • Elemental Resonance: Enduring Rock 2x
  • Strategize 2x
  • Lotus Flower Crisp 2x
  • Liyue Harbor Wharf 2x
  • Ellin 1x
  • The Bestest Travel Companion! 2x
  • Starsigns 2x
  • Send Off 2x
  • Adeptus' Temptation 2x
  • I Got Your Back 2x
  • Wolf's Gravestone 1x
  • Archaic Petra 2x
  • Paimon 2x

Strategy

This is a fast-paced deck that can quickly steal wins by converting all of your elemental energy into omni energy, which allows you to pay any type of energy to activate specific skills, and all your normal damage into geo damage.

Mona will make sure that your damage is doubled up with her Illusory Bubble skill, while Ningguang and Noelle will make sure that you're safe from harm using Jade Screen and Full Plate skills respectively.

Then, utilize Liyue Harbor Wharf to draw extra cards, and Starsigns to gain extra energy to pay for your skills. Lastly, play The Bestest Travel Companion! to convert all your energy into omni energy.

Soon enough you should accumulate enough energy for elemental bursts and quickly drain your opponents.

A-Tier Deck

Noelle Talent Deck

         

Character Cards

  • Noelle.
  • Keqing.
  • Cyno.

Action Cards

  • Timmie 2x
  • Elemental Resonance: Woven Thunder 2x
  • I Haven't Lost Yet! 1x
  • Leave It to Me! 2x
  • Liu Su 2x
  • Elemental Resonance: High Voltage 2x
  • Strategize 2x
  • Minty Meat Rolls 2x
  • White Iron Greatsword 1x
  • Liyue Harbor Wharf 2x
  • Iron Tongue Tian 1x
  • Parametric Transformer 2x
  • The Bestest Travel Companion! 2x
  • Send Off 2x
  • I Got Your Back 2x
  • Featherfall Judgement 1x
  • Paimon 2x

Strategy

Here is another example of an aggressive deck that strongly relies on talent cards and electro damage.

In this case, Noelle once again serves as the protective element, as well as elemental combo enabler with the other two electro characters. Keqing is here mostly for the incredible Starward Sword AoE attack, while Cyno provides high electro damage yield with its Sacred Rite skills.

But the main dish comes in the form of the talent cards, including I Got Your Back, which allows Noelle to heal all your characters, and Featherfall Judgement, which allows Cyno to increase damage even further.

Such a combination of powerful support and offense will leave your opponents no other option except conceding.

B-Tier Decks

Fischl Electro Deck

         

Character Cards

  • Fischl.
  • Ganyu.
  • Keqing.

Action Cards

  • Chang the Ninth 2x
  • Elemental Resonance: Woven Thunder 2x
  • Changing Shifts 2x
  • Leave It to Me! 1x
  • Liu Su 1x
  • Elemental Resonance: High Voltage 2x
  • Strategize 2x
  • Lotus Flower Crisp 2x
  • Mondstadt Hash Brown 2x
  • Mushroom Pizza 2x
  • Lucky Dog's Silver Circlet 1x
  • Liyue Harbor Wharf 2x
  • Favonius Cathedral 1x
  • NRE 1x
  • The Bestest Travel Companion! 2x
  • Send Off 1x
  • Thundering Penance 1x
  • Aquila Favonia 2x
  • Paimon 1x

Strategy

Electro damage is highly effective, and in this deck it is supported by the cryo element of Ganyu.

Fischl's and Keqing's skills synergize greatly for some increased bursts of electro damage, using Midnight Phantasmagoria and Starward Sword skills. On top of that, utilize Ganyu's Celestial Shower to freeze all enemies.

Electro damage requires lots of energy, so be sure to activate Elemental Resonance: High Voltage to gain even more energy, as well as Liu Su, which adds more energy to your characters whenever you switch them.

You also have tools for healing, as well as gaining extra damage, which is the main point of this deck.

Yoimiya Pyro Combo Deck

         

Character Cards

  • Yoimiya.
  • Collei.
  • Fatui Pyro Agent.

Action Cards

  • Elemental Resonance: Woven Flames 2x
  • Changing Shifts 2x
  • Toss-Up 2x
  • Leave It to Me! 1x
  • Northern Smoked Chicken 2x
  • Knights of Favonius Library 1x
  • Elemental Resonance: Fervent Flames 2x
  • Strategize 1x
  • Lotus Flower Crisp 1x
  • Mondstadt Hash Brown 1x
  • Mushroom Pizza 2x
  • Lucky Dog's Silver Circlet 2x
  • Liyue Harbor Wharf 2x
  • Favonius Cathedral 2x
  • Tubby 1x
  • Send Off 2x
  • Floral Sidewinder 2x
  • Paid in Full 2x

Strategy

If you want to try out a combo deck that has the potential to take out an opponent in one hit, then try out this special synergy of Yoimiya's Ryuukin Saxifrage skill with either Collei and Fatui Pyro Agent's physical attacks. Players need to activate Yoimiya's Aurous Blaze and attack with other characters, thus increasing overall pyro damage.

Fatui Pyro Agent also has access to the stealth mechanic with his Stealth Master passive skill, which allows him to receive less damage, and simultaneously increase his own.

There are also plenty of tools to heal yourself, such as Favonius Cathedral, and draw extra cards.

Those are some of the best decks in Genshin Impact TCG: Genius Invokation. Check out other Genshin Impact tips and tricks articles on our dedicated hub page!

Genshin Impact TCG: Genius Invokation — Best Character Cards Tier List https://www.gameskinny.com/0rlnq/genshin-impact-tcg-genius-invokation-best-character-cards-tier-list https://www.gameskinny.com/0rlnq/genshin-impact-tcg-genius-invokation-best-character-cards-tier-list Mon, 19 Dec 2022 13:25:33 -0500 Serhii Patskan

There are 27 character cards in Genshin Impact TCG: Genius Invokation. Each card offers a number of skills and a passive that all need to be accounted for when making your decks.

Our guide will provide you with a tier list of the best character cards in Genshin Impact TCG: Genius Invokation. You will learn about their best abilities, synergies, combos, as well as tips on how to unlock these cards.

S-Tier Character Cards

Mona

  • Element: Hydro.

Mona's normal attack may not be as strong as of other cards, but her elemental skill and elemental burst attacks are some of the best in the game. Both of them create summons that protect Mona and increase her damage significantly.

Another important characteristic is her access to the Illusory Torrent passive skill, which allows players to quickly switch between active characters, as if it was fast action instead of combat action.

You can unlock Mona by inviting her to a duel at The Cat's Tail and winning in a Friendly Fracas. Mona synergizes the best with such cards like Ningguang, Barbara, and Noelle.

Noelle

  • Element: Geo.

Noelle has an excellent elemental skill that protects her from damage, but her biggest advantage is the Sweeping Time ability.

This skill is expensive, but once activated it reduces the cost of your normal attacks, and increases their power, while also converting all your normal damage into geo damage.

This skill synergizes greatly with Ningguang's own geo attacks, as well as Xingqiu's normal attacks.

Players can obtain the Noelle card by inviting her to a duel at The Cat's Tail and winning in her Friendly Fracas.

A-Tier Character Cards

Fischl

  • Element: Electro.

Why deal damage to only one enemy, when you can blast all of them at once?

That's where Fischl comes in with her AoE skill Midnight Phantasmagoria. Yes, it's expensive. But it's highly efficient!

She can also summon an Oz night raven and Nightrider that deal extra electro damage to enemies. Nightrider must be equipped first, but it's worth it as your electro damage doubles up in that case.

Fischl synergizes greatly with Keqing and Collei, and she can be unlocked by inviting her to a duel at The Cat's Tail and winning in the Friendly Fracas.

Keqing

  • Element: Electro.

Keqing can be a great alternative or a companion to Fischl. Both use electro damage to a great extent, but Keqing's Starward Sword AoE attack is even more powerful than that of Fischl's.

On the other hand, Keqing doesn't have summons, such as Oz. Instead you can use her Lightning Stiletto, which equips her with Electro Infusion, which not only transforms all of her physical damage into electro damage, but also increases it when using her talent card.

As already mentioned, she synergizes with Fischl the best, as well as with Ganyu, and the unlock condition is the same, too.

B-Tier Character Cards

Yoimiya

  • Element: Pyro.

There are several really strong pyro characters in Genius Invokation, but Yoimiya offers a special combo that can easily insta-kill a strong enemy.

Players need to combine Yoimiya's skill Ryuukin Saxifrage with another character that deals lots of normal damage. What players need to do is hit an enemy with elemental burst, activating Aurous Blaze, then switch Yoimiya to that other character and deal extra damage, which is usually lethal.

It is recommended to combine Yoimiya with Fischl and Collei for the best results. You can unlock her by winning this character's Friendly Fracas.

Chongyun

  • Element: Cryo.

If you like to freeze your enemies, and combine elements for ultimate elemental bursts, then Chongyun would be a great choice.

His best ability is Chonghua's Layered Frost, which converts all physical damage dealt by your allies into cryo damage. This allows players to achieve swift OTK combos with other elements.

If you want nothing complicated, but pure targeted damage, then use his Cloud-Parting Star attack, which deals 7 points of cryo damage, and that's enough to kill a large enemy.

Chongyun shows the best results with Diluc and Sucrose, so if you want to use him, then you will have to win his Friendly Fracas as well.

Collei

  • Element: Dendro.

Collei is a specialized dendro damage dealer. Basically, all her skills, as well as her talent card, do nothing but deal lots and lots of dendro damage.

Her Trump-Card Kitty skill summons Cuilein-Anbar, which deals 2 points of damage at the end of each phase, and if you equip her Floral Sidewinder card, then she deals another 3 points of damage at the end of each phase. That is a lot of passive damage!

Collei works best in tandem with Fischl and Keqing, and her unlock condition also requires you to win her Friendly Fracas.

Those are the best character cards in Genshin Impact TCG: Genius Invokation. Check out other Genshin Impact tips and tricks articles on our dedicated hub page!

Marvel Snap: Best Token Shop Cards Tier List https://www.gameskinny.com/e0qpr/marvel-snap-best-token-shop-cards-tier-list https://www.gameskinny.com/e0qpr/marvel-snap-best-token-shop-cards-tier-list Mon, 12 Dec 2022 09:58:45 -0500 Serhii Patskan

All Marvel Snap players know the feeling when the have a high Collection Level but they still can't get the card they want. Fortunately, the developer has added a Token Shop to the game, where players can purchase single cards they miss.

Our guide will provide you with a tier list of the best Token Shop cards in Marvel Snap.

S-Tier Token Shop Cards

Patriot

  • Collection Level: Pool 3.
  • Ongoing: Your cards with no abilities have +2 Power.

Patriot is the ultimate budget card, which for some reason becomes available only at Collection Level: Pool 3. Fortunately, you can get it in the Token Shop a lot earlier and significantly improve your cheap cards with no abilities.

Currently, the biggest winner deck that uses Patriot is Abomination/Onslaught archetype that doubles this card's ongoing effect, and turns your smallest minions into the most formidable forces.

Mister Negative

  • Collection Level: Pool 3.
  • On Reveal: Swap the Power and Cost of all cards in your deck.

Mister Negative combo archetype has been one of the most consistent lists in Marvel Snap. If you've always wanted to try this-top tier deck, then purchasing Mister Negative from the Token Shop is totally worth it.

You can play Mister Negative as soon as turn three with the help of Psylocke, which gives you an extra energy. The sooner you play this card, the better results you can have with an otherwise super budget deck.

Lockjaw

  • Collection Level: Pool 3.
  • Effect: When you play a card here, swap it with a card in your deck.

Lockjaw is one of the best cards in Pool 3 that allows players to quickly find the required combo piece in their deck and put it on board instead of another cheap minion.

One of the best combos players can achieve with Lockjaw is to get Sera via Nova, and then play Brood with a number of buff cards. But the potential here is massive, so don't skip this card if you see it in your Token Shop.

A-Tier Token Shop Cards

Leader

  • Collection Level: Pool 3.
  • On Reveal: Copy all cards your opponent played this turn, but on your side.

Leader can be used in both combo lists, as well as in midrange decks with no particular plan except winning by better gameplay. What makes this card special is that it almost always wins you the game.

It's not advisable to play Leader as soon as possible, as this card is all about strategic surprise. Wait for it until the very end of the match-up, and if you see that one of your locations loses to opponent, then play Leader at that location to overtake the initiative and win the game.

Daredevil

  • Collection Level: N/A.
  • Effect: On turn 5, you get to see your opponent's plays before you make your own.

This card is a perfect candidate for your Token Shop wish list, as you cannot unlock it by simply upgrading your Collection Level. This card has been available only via a Premium Access Battle Pass, but now you can also get it in the Token Shop, and you should.

It allows you to see your opponent's turn before it happens, and decide whether you want to keep going and take an assured victory, or if you see that things don't go your way, then quickly retreat. It's a truly unique card!

Wong

  • Collection Level: Pool 3.
  • Ongoing: Your On Reveal abilities at this location happen twice.

Wong is a solid card that makes all your On Reveal cards so much more powerful. You don't even need to figure out any combos, just play your strongest On Reveal cards and see yourself win every time.

Of course, the success of this card greatly depends on the quality of your On Reveal cards, so here are a few suggestion that you might want to look into: Leader, Thor, Odin, Jessica Jones, and Medusa.

B-Tier Token Shop Cards

Wave

  • Collection Level: Season 01.
  • On Reveal: Next turn, cards in both players' hands cost 4.

Wave can play a double role in your deck. First, it can reduce the cost of your most expensive cards to 4 Energy, and second, it can increase the cost of all cheap cards in your opponent's hand.

Typically, Wave needs to be played once you have your expensive win condition in the hand, and you're ready to take over the game next turn. This may include such cards like Death, Hela, The Infinaut, and others.

Sera

  • Collection Level: Pool 3.
  • Ongoing: Cards in your hand cost 1 less.

If you're not impressed with the Wave's ability, but you still want a way to reduce the cost of your cards (albeit in a much safer way) then Sera would be a better alternative.

You can play it on turn four with the help of Psylocke and play all your big boys one turn earlier. You may not be able to play Death this way, but there are other ways to put it on board, such as Killmonger or Elektra.

Those are the best Token Shop cards in Marvel Snap. Be sure to check out other tips guides, as well, such as those for tie breakers, how to upgrade cards, and how move and destroy effects work

Nikke: Goddess of Victory — Best Characters Tier List https://www.gameskinny.com/ovovn/nikke-goddess-of-victory-best-characters-tier-list https://www.gameskinny.com/ovovn/nikke-goddess-of-victory-best-characters-tier-list Mon, 14 Nov 2022 12:21:13 -0500 Serhii Patskan

Nikke: Goddess of Victory is sweeping the gacha community between its graphics and addictive gameplay. But of course, you've got to have some top tier units to stay competitive.

Whether you want an easy time or you just want to flex on your friends with your pulls, here's a character tier list to get your unit priorities straight.

S-Tier Characters

Scarlet

  • Attack: 25,554
  • Defense: 4,164
  • HP: 583,734

Scarlet is designed specifically to deal as much damage as possible, especially sustained and burst types of damage.

She can also increase her own attack power, which is already high by default, and her critical hit rate with critical damage.

Her best skill is Scarlet Flash, which increases her critical rate and damage once her HP total drops below 50%.

Noah

  • Attack: 17,059
  • Defense: 4,900
  • HP: 711,171

No team can sustain too much damage without the support of a tank character, and Noah is the best tank in the game so far.

She not only has massive HP pool, but she can also boost the defenses of her allies, and debuff all of enemy's attacks as well.

Her best skill is U Mad Bro?, which taunts all enemies and makes all her allies immune to damage for a short period of time.

Volume

  • Attack: 25,554
  • Defense: 3,633
  • HP: 583,734

Volume is another great attacker, who can increase her own damage, but also help her team by boosting its critical hit rate.

In order to effectively use Volume, players need to consider two of her skills, such as Drop the Beat and Turn Up the Volume, in a synergy.

Once both are used, all your allies get critical hit chance and critical damage boost, as well as burst skill cooldown time reduction.

A-Tier Characters

Novel

  • Attack: 17,059
  • Defense: 4,364
  • HP: 711,171

Novel is another great tank and a good alternative to Noah. She also has support abilities that buff the attacking power of her allies, which is always useful.

Her best ability is Case Closed, which increases both attack and defenses of her allies, stacking Cornucopia defensive skill up to its maximum.

Novel's only drawback is that her SMG weapon has a shorter range than that of Noah's weapon.

Poli

  • Attack: 17,059
  • Defense: 4,827
  • HP: 711,171

Poli is definitely a unique defender, as she can take a percentage of her ally's damage onto herself, if that ally has low HP. This is possible due to her That's a Good Boy ability.

But her best skill is Poli's Defense Line, which creates a massive shield that protects all her allies, albeit the cooldown on it is pretty steep at 40 seconds.

Julia

  • Attack: 25,554
  • Defense: 4,164
  • HP: 583,734

Julia's burst damage is quite amazing, but it needs to be combined with a full stack of her Crescendo ability to give really impressive results.

You can also use her Climax ability that hits five enemies at once with 500% attacking power, but once again with a longer cooldown.

B-Tier Characters

Brid

  • Attack: 25,554
  • Defense: 4,164
  • HP: 583,734

Brid is very similar in design to Julia, whose burst damage can be well utilized, but there is a condition that is quite hard to satisfy in order to maintain the necessary amount of damage: Brid needs to stay at full health.

As for her skills, Leak and AZX are the best for specifically targeting enemies with the highest attack and HP.

Guillotine

  • Attack: 25,554
  • Defense: 3,539
  • HP: 583,734

Guillotine is the opposite of Brid, as she gets stronger the more HP she loses. Note that Guillotine has no skills that would heal her up in case her HP drops too low.

Also, when she uses her Shroud of Darkness ability, you will see some significant damage increase only after her HP total falls below 70%.

Signal

  • Attack: 25,554
  • Defense: 3,633
  • HP: 583,734

If none of the above units seem cool to you, and you don't mind sacrificing a bit of damage for self-heal ability, then Signal is the right choice.

Her Waiting for Signal passive skill automatically recovers her own lost HP, but only when a full burst damage is activated.

Those are the best characters in Nikke: Goddess of Victory, and stay tuned for more.

Marvel Snap: Best Pool 3 Decks https://www.gameskinny.com/q53of/marvel-snap-best-pool-3-decks https://www.gameskinny.com/q53of/marvel-snap-best-pool-3-decks Mon, 07 Nov 2022 08:39:22 -0500 Serhii Patskan

It'll take some grinding before Marvel Snap players unlock Collection Level: Pool 3. But once you're there, you will experience a competitive and aggressive meta game. That's why it's so important to know which decks to use on the ranked ladder.

Our guide will provide you with the best Pool 3 decks in Marvel Snap, which have already shown top results.

Daredevil Destroyer Deck

  • Yondu.
  • Bucky Barnes.
  • Daredevil.
  • Carnage.
  • Armor.
  • Wave.
  • Taskmaster.
  • Iron-Man.
  • Professor X.
  • Magik.
  • Destroyer.
  • Death.

Once you unlock the Destroyer card in Collection Level: Pool 3, consider yourself lucky, as this is one of the most powerful cards in there.

It has 16 Power, but when it's revealed, it destroys all your other cards. However, if you play cards like Armor and Professor X before you play Destroyer, then you can keep, if not all, then most of your cards intact.

Lastly, you can easily win on the next turn by playing Daredevil, a card that allows you to see your opponent's next move.

Ghost Rider Deck

  • Iron Fist.
  • Blade.
  • Angela.
  • Okoye.
  • Multiple Man.
  • Cloak.
  • Nakia.
  • Bishop.
  • Lady Sif.
  • Ghost Rider.
  • Strong Guy.
  • Heimdall.

This deck is based on discard and move mechanics that mainly rely on Ghost Rider and Multiple Man synergies.

As you start moving Multiple Man from one location to another, using such cards like Iron Fist, Cloak, and Heimdall, it starts to multiply, creating more copies of itself.

On the other hand, Ghost Rider creates copies of discarded cards, and you can further increase your power using Strong Guy. The rest of the cards either buff your other cards, or help you discard your hand.

Dracula Aggro Deck

  • Sunspot.
  • Nightcrawler.
  • Angela.
  • Okoye.
  • Scarlet Witch.
  • Nakia.
  • Dracula.
  • Jubilee.
  • Strong Guy.
  • Red Skull.
  • The Infinaut.
  • America Chavez.

Dracula allows players to deliver some of the most unexpected wins in the game.

It relies on the power of such cards like America Chavez, Red Skull, and The Infinaut. You don't even need to play these cards, as all you need is for them to stay in your hand for the Dracula trigger.

Now imagine that on the last turn you have Dracula on board and The Infinaut in your hand, which gets discarded. Dracula then gains its 20 Power and wins you the game to a complete surprise of your opponent.

Human Torch Deck

  • Nightcrawler.
  • Iron Fist.
  • Human Torch.
  • Blade.
  • Angela.
  • Okoye.
  • Multiple Man.
  • Cloak.
  • Nakia.
  • Bishop.
  • Strong Guy.
  • America Chavez.

This is another movement and discard deck, but it has a bigger shift towards movement mechanics using such cards like Human Torch and Multiple Man.

While Multiple Man copies itself when moved, Human Torch doubles its power, which is a much more powerful ability. If you move it once, it gains 4 power, if you move it twice, it gains 8 power, and if you move it a third time, you will have a 16 Power card on any one location.

Mister Negative Deck

  • Psylocke.
  • Ironheart.
  • Wolfsbane.
  • Nakia.
  • Lockjaw.
  • Mister Negative.
  • Jubilee.
  • Iron-Man.
  • White Tiger.
  • Magik.
  • Devil Dinosaur.

This is a pretty straightforward deck, when you play Mister Negative, and all your cards in the deck swap their power and cost.

If you play it on turn four, then all other 4-cost and 5-cost cards can be played in one turn, as most of them will cost zero or one energy. The only card that will cost 3 Energy would be Magik.

Sera Miracle Deck

  • Angela.
  • Mojo.
  • Scarlet Witch.
  • Mysterio.
  • Nakia.
  • Bishop.
  • Lady Sif.
  • Ghost Rider.
  • Strong Guy.
  • Hell Cow.
  • Sera.
  • America Chavez.

This deck utilizes the power of Sera, a card that makes all your cards cost 1 Energy less. This means that you can play all your cards much quicker, and make your Strong Guy much stronger.

Try to play Sera as soon as possible, and you will have a very strong position in no time. Note that the final push for victory will be provided by Mysterio and his Illusions.

Those are the best Pool 3 decks in Marvel Snap. If you were looking for the best starter decks in Marvel Snap, then head over here. Be sure to check out other tips guides, as well, such as those for tie breakers, how to upgrade cards, and how move and destroy effects work

Marvel Snap Pool Cards Explained https://www.gameskinny.com/0imbj/marvel-snap-pool-cards-explained https://www.gameskinny.com/0imbj/marvel-snap-pool-cards-explained Tue, 01 Nov 2022 12:14:20 -0400 Serhii Patskan

All Marvel Snap players receive their starter cards after creating an account. But there is more to it, and there are three more Collection Levels full of cards that are far more powerful.

Our guide will explain what are Pool cards and how to unlock them in Marvel Snap, including a complete list of all Pool cards below.

How to Unlock Pool Cards

There are three Collection Levels in Marvel Snap simply titled Pool 1, Pool 2, and Pool 3. Each Pool can be unlocked by upgarding your cards in the following way:

  1. Complete a tutorial, unlocking starter cards.
  2. Play with a starter deck, earning boosters.
  3. Use boosters to upgrade cards.
  4. The more cards you upgrade, the higher Collection Level you unlock.

Boosters are points that are calculated after each match-up, depending on the number of your turns. If you finished with five turns, you get 5 boosters, if you finished with six turns, then you get 6 boosters, and so on.

Cards can be upgraded a number of times with the following results:

  • Common to Uncommon: 5 boosters (or 25 credits) = Collection Level +1
  • Uncommon to Rare: 10 boosters (or 100 credits) = Collection Level +2
  • Rare to Epic: 20 boosters (or 200 credits) = Collection Level +4
  • Epic to Legendary: 30 boosters (or 300 credits) = Collection Level +6
  • Legendary to Ultra: 40 boosters (or 400 credits) = Collection Level +8
  • Ultra to Infinity: 50 boosters (or 500 credits) = Collection Level +10

In order to upgrade any given card, you need to do the following:

  1. Go to your cards collection.
  2. Tap on any card with green upward arrows.
  3. Tap on the "Upgrade" button (bottom right).
  4. Confirm by pressing "Upgrade".
  5. Go to "Collection Level" menu.
  6. Claim any new unlocked cards by pressing "Claim!".
  7. Rinse and repeat to unlock more cards.

Credits can be purchased with Gold (real money) in the in-game shop, or earned by completing the following challenges:

  • Playing matches and winning.
  • Increasing Collection Level.
  • Earning ranked rewards.
  • Season Pass rewards.
  • Completing weekly challenges.
  • Claiming log-in rewards.

Note that upgraded cards simply change their appearance, and there are no new abilities added, but they help you upgrade your overall Collection Level which always begins at 1-14. From there you need to unlock the rest:

  • Pool 1 unlocks at Collection Level 18-214.
  • Pool 2 unlocks at Collection Level 222-450.
  • Pool 3 unlocks at Collection Level 462-?.

Pool 3 is still updating, and new cards are added regularly. New cards unlock randomly within each Pool, and you never know which one you get.

Once you reach the maximum number of Collection Level points, the next Pool of cards unlocks automatically.

Marvel Snap: Best Pool 2 Decks https://www.gameskinny.com/wphna/marvel-snap-best-pool-2-decks https://www.gameskinny.com/wphna/marvel-snap-best-pool-2-decks Tue, 01 Nov 2022 12:02:04 -0400 Serhii Patskan

Most new Marvel Snap players should try and unlock Collection Level: Pool 2 as soon as possible, since it has broad list of strong cards. Many Pool 2 decks are much more efficient than the starter decks, and thus have a better chance of getting you higher on the ranked ladder.

Our guide will offer you some of the best Pool 2 decks in Marvel Snap, which have been showing great results in the current meta game.

Sunspot Infinaut Deck

  • Sunspot.
  • Korg.
  • Yondu.
  • Nightcrawler.
  • Iceman.
  • Scorpion.
  • Lizard.
  • Ironheart.
  • Kazar.
  • White Queen.
  • Blue Marvel.
  • The Infinaut.

One of the best new winning combos in the current Marvel Snap meta is the Sunspot/Infinaut combo, which puts a massive amount of power on the board.

The way to win here is to play in the following way:

  1. Play only Sunspot on turn 4.
  2. Gain +3 Power at the end of the turn (4 total).
  3. Skip turn 5 and gain +5 power (9 total).
  4. Play The Infinaut on turn 6.

In just three turns and two cards you will have 29 Power, and you may use the rest to disrupt your opponent's plays for a solid victory.

Okoye Midrange Deck

  • Elektra.
  • Nova.
  • Nightcrawler.
  • Forge.
  • Okoye.
  • Mister Sinister.
  • Carnage.
  • Scarlet Witch.
  • Ironheart.
  • Wolfsbane.
  • Cosmo.
  • White Tiger.

This deck is specifically built for playing Okoye on Kamar-Taj location, which triggers all On Reveal effects twice. As you may have noticed, almost all the cards in this deck are based on On Reveal abilities.

Besides Okoye the most powerful effects that should be played on Kamar-Taj are: White Tiger, which creates not one but two 7-power creatures, Wolfsbane, and Ironheart.

Most cards in this deck are also made to buff all your other cards, including the famous Carnage/Nova combo.

Blade Discard Deck

  • Ant-Man.
  • Nightcrawler.
  • Blade.
  • Angela.
  • Okoye.
  • Swarm.
  • Scarlet Witch.
  • Nakia.
  • Bishop.
  • Lady Sif.
  • Strong Guy.
  • America Chavez.

The deck mainly revolves around Swarm combo, which can utilize either Blade or Lady Sif to discard it, thus gaining two zero cost copies, which can be played instantly on the same turn.

The rest of the deck follows a typical buff scenario with Okoye and Nakia, but if you can empty your hand right after playing Strong Guy, then this synergy can also play a significant role in your victory.

Dinosaur Aggro Deck

  • Yondu.
  • Mantis.
  • Agent 13.
  • Cable.
  • Sentinel.
  • Moon Girl.
  • White Queen.
  • Iron-Man.
  • White Tiger.
  • Devil Dinosaur.
  • Spider Woman.
  • Odin.

Here is another On Reveal themed deck, but with a different twist. Most cards in this deck are also based on On Reveal abilities, and should be played on Kamar-Taj location.

The main goal of the deck is to utilize the Devil Dinosaur/Moon Girl combo when you have a full hand. This is possible to achieve already on turn 6, and then you play Moon Girl to duplicate your hand with Devil Dinosaur buffing itself up by +2 Power for each of those cards.

Collector Aggro Deck

  • Squirrel Girl.
  • Nova.
  • Agent 13.
  • Bucky Barnes.
  • The Collector.
  • Carnage.
  • Cable.
  • Sentinel.
  • Deathlok.
  • Moon Girl.
  • Iron-Man.
  • Devil Dinosaur.

This deck's main goal is to put as many cards into your hand as possible, thus buffing The Collector. Cards that can help you achieve this are: Agent 13, Cable, Sentinel, and Moon Girl.

Of course, if you play a deck like this, then you also have to include Devil Dinosaur, since it benefits from additional cards in your hand.

The rest of the deck is used for extra buffing, using such combos like Nova/Deathlok or Nova/Carnage.

Nakia Midrange Deck

  • Elektra.
  • Ant-Man.
  • Ondu.
  • Nightcrawler.
  • Okoye.
  • Domino.
  • Ironheart.
  • Nakia.
  • Bishop.
  • Captain America.
  • Iron-Man.
  • Klaw.

This deck is a bit slower than Okoye Midrange deck mentioned above, but it is also more flexible. It allows you to play different types of buffs, and not rely on Kamar-Taj too much.

You can place your cards more freely, depending on such supporters like Klaw and Captain America. But if you want to be more aggressive, then you can go all in with the Ant-Man and Ironheart.

This deck allows you to go with the flow and act according to the situation.

Those are the best Pool 2 decks in Marvel Snap. If you were looking for the best starter decks in Marvel Snap, then head over here. Be sure to check out other tips guides, as well, such as those for tie breakers, how to upgrade cards, and how move and destroy effects work

Tower of Fantasy: How to Get and Farm Return Support Points https://www.gameskinny.com/x2du0/tower-of-fantasy-how-to-get-and-farm-return-support-points https://www.gameskinny.com/x2du0/tower-of-fantasy-how-to-get-and-farm-return-support-points Sat, 29 Oct 2022 12:54:26 -0400 John Schutt

As much content as Tower of Fantasy has, gacha games aren’t for everyone. But with the 2.0 update and the addition of the Vera region, players everywhere are bound to return. Anyone coming back will have a lot of catching up to do, but thankfully, both veterans and lapsed players have a reward system for them. Those who never stopped playing can now earn Return Support Points to spend in an all-new store.

This Tower of Fantasy guide covers how you get Return Support Points, what you can do with them, and the best places to farm them.

Return Support Points Explained

To earn Return Support Points, you must complete playlist activities with a returning lapsed player: anyone who hasn’t played in seven days or more. With them in your team, you can participate in either Select or Challenge activities to earn specific amounts of Return Support Points.

You’ll be participating in the two playlists: Select missions and Challenge missions. The Return Support Values are below.

Select Mission Return Support Point Values

  • 30 points per completion of any activity at any difficulty. A Joint Operation at level 8 is the same reward as a level 1 Dimensional Trial, and so on.

Challenge Mission Return Support Point Values

  • Void Rifts: 30 points per boss kill. Good for getting some extra Matrices and gear but not the most efficient use of your time.
  • Raid: 50 points per clear. Unless you go into the Raid activity with a scuffed team, there will always be enough strong players to carry the returning one lagging behind.
  • Frontier Clash: There are two difficulties here.
    • Hard mode provides 20 points per boss kill for a maximum of 100, though reaching that milestone takes high stats, a good team comp, and a bit of luck.
    • Normal mode provides 5 points per round clear, for a maximum of 75 for a full completion. If you or one of your teammates can easily take out all the enemies and bosses, this is one of the better ways to farm Return Support Points. If you don’t manage much past round 10, it might be preferable to focus on other activities.

If you have a friend or friends who used to play Tower of Fantasy, they’re the easiest ask to get into your team and get back in the saddle. There are also ways to matchmake and group with random players for limited times.

Returning Executors will have a reward screen of their own called the Limited-Time Return Store, visible via the Stellarway Restart menu. They’ll mostly be collecting upgrade materials, but they only have 14 days to do so.

How to Group with Returning Players

There are two primary methods of grouping players needing help without already having you on your friends list.

  • Join a Support Match Joint Operation. These Joint Operations are designed to pair you up with returning players, but whether they actually do so is a bit suspect. Our tests got us nothing.

  • Respond to a Rescue Signal in the Support Store. At the top of the Support Store is a new button called Rescue Signal. Selecting it opens a list of players looking for help. You can either press the flag button to invite them to your group or send them a Whisper message. Whispers are more likely to get results, as you come off as more than someone spamming invites in hopes someone joins.

No matter how you help your returning Executors, you’ll be able to get your hands on Gold Nuclei, Proofs of Purchase, and other goodies. For more on the Vera update and Tower of Fantasy in general, check out our guides hub.
