So if I start a new account I get access to:

2 x Draco Deity Tickets
1 x Angel Deity Ticket
1 x Boden Deity Ticket
2 x Dragon Buster / Darl Soul Key Tickets
2 x Hero Tickets

Any advice on what to take?!

I was thinking at least 1 Draco as Blackaria and then an Epsilon Key.

Not sure about the others?

A lot of guides recommending 1 x Draco = Bloodwind, Angel = Llywelyn, Boden = Arrow Trigger and then make a Ouranos Key.

What about the spare Dragon Buster / Dark Soul Key? Go for a Rogue Hero with one ticket and get Stigma?

Most of the guides online don't take into account that most of the Dark Soul Key's are out now so I'm not sure if they are better or worst than the Buster's?!

Downloaded this game because I was interested in finding a phone game with some meat to it. Never played a F2P game that asked me to spend $100 on it before I even started playing the game. That was a little offputting.

Game seems alright though, I'll give it a spin for now.

Which type of player character are you making? You probably want one of your keys to be that class so you can do raids and guild content semi-effectively. Paladin Buster or at least Drunken Falcon is really good to help survivability during the story and leveling up with its group invincibility. If you're interested in any of the "transcended" characters, it makes sense to get a buster in that upgrade line to bypass a few weeks of grinding.

The game has been extremely F2P friendly for me, though you won't touch the higher %'s in rankings until you've grinded a huge amount due to starting a bit behind. The banners are a little annoying but easily skipped. As far as meat, the story mode is pretty long at this point, and there's tons of content, even if you only log on and do dailies.

The funny thing is that all premium stuff is so ridiculously priced there's no point buying it and you just go F2P way since game gives you hundreds of $ "worth" stuff monthly.

Personally, I would choose

Blackaria and Bloodwind/Deathcrown
Kymael
Falcon
Askr and Tiehr
2 Tiels so you can make Awakened Tiel and Helios

Tiehr and Askr should help you get through the chapter and Tiehr should be good for raiding. You should aim to make Howl to make Omega, and once you have Helios, you can make Giant Helios. Longer term goals should be making Farrah and Manalandy to make Ult Epsilon. It doesn't really matter if you choose Bloodwind or Deathcrown, as you're too far away from making their Transcended form. Deathcrown is probably the better choice for Hero Arena.

You can change things up a bit, but I think Blackaria, Falcon, Askr and the 2 Tiels are musts from what you need to pick.

I think I'd choose Iota instead of Askr - there won't be place for 3 paladin keys soon and Omega needs to be made for t.Falcon and t.Howl - Iota is usefull in itself and she also gives Margaret.

If he's starting now though, he's far from replacing any of the paladin keys, and by the time Transcended Margaret releases, we'll be getting more free keys (in fact, it might have become a monthly reward by then; will have to check). T Marg IS prorbably the best first Transcended he should aim towards, so I do recommend getting Iota, but only closer to T Marg's release (I'd suggest using the free key that comes with T Lly release), since Iota is more of an endgame unit that will benefit him once he already has a solid world boss team. Meanwhile, Askr will help in all modes and is quite relevant for a good bit longer from now (longer than Iota), and is a component for Transcended Tiel.

I just finished maxing Transcended Bloodwind, and I'm wondering what I should aim towards next. For my keys, I have ULT Omega, ULT Tyr, ULT Sasha, ULT Ouranos, MAX Askr, MAX Tethys, +8 Helios, and +7 Shiva. For future Transcended, it's clearly the easiest for me to get T. Ravengale and T. Mikaela. For the other Transcended, I would basically have to make the busters and take them to ULT from scratch. Which would be better for WB, Ravengale or Mikaela? And do you think it's worth bringing up any other keys or just focusing everything on Transcended?

Ravengale is better for wb. Depending on how much Trans essences you are able to farm I would suggest making mikaela as well. Right now we are still in the phase where having any Trans unit out classes a whole team of keyed units. And they are resource intensive. So make Trans units that you are able to and take a gander at Boden Trans units. Some of them will last a long while in meta. Depending on what you like there go and make respective key units. Bear is good, howl is great, foxy and manalandy are strong af. Plenty of paths to go down on

T Ravengale is far better than T Mikaela in WB. Definitely go for TRG if you want a better WB unit, especially since her buffs don't need her to be at MAX to be effective. In terms of keys, you definitely need an Ult Iota for T Margaret, and I would also look to Ult Helios and Askr that you already have. An Ult Epsilon for T Blackaria and T Manalandy is also very worth it.

In terms of next step, after finishing off those 4 keys I mentioned and acquiring a base TRG and TBA (and later on a base T Mana and T Falcon, maybe T Howl if you want), you should start saving up for T Margaret. You might be able to max one more unit before TMarg, and if you choose to do so, TBA for overall survivability in all modes or TRG for a boost in WB (and some PVP to some extent) are both good choices. You can also opt to save it for T Howl.

This does mean you have to skip T Lly, which is a top tier DPS for WB, but I think the benefits of working on the above instead of T Lly is greater, especially when you already have TBW who will be the second best and certainly is no slouch.

Thanks for the advice! So the plan is make a base T. Ravengale, ULT Askr and Helios, then look to make and ULT Epsilon? And I guess I'll use this month's deity select on Margaret or Tracy.

Man, tag is a shit-tier event. I like the idea of it, but my god, either you get insta-gibbed or the fight takes 20 minutes. It doesn't help that I don't have even a single titan, and they seem to be masters at the event, particularly the Rogue and the Paladin.

What are you running that it's taking 20 minutes in a tag match? Buster tag is certainly out of balance with GS and DC running the gamut but hero tag is a lot of fun. I only have helios as a titan and don't even use her there. It's great to see all different makeups of teams/skills there.

+1 I'm using Howl, A. Tiel, A. Fulson, Hellhawk and Atlas. Howl is particularly nice since his death skill works pretty well here, and you can swap him out once he uses it to have it recharge. A. Fulson and Hellhawk can be pretty deadly when they vanish, and A. Tiel is just really well-rounded in terms of attack and defense.

sigh...
i like the game, I REALLY do..
but the requirements are getting out of hand..
doing the t-draco was a slog..
making a draco (or any trascended) costs 50m + 50 trascended essence (which is a LOT)..
then..
+1 to +3 --> 5 m per levels (like.. okay????), 20 trascended essence per level (lfmao......)
+4 to +6 --> 10m per levels (ahyayayayayayay...) and then 40 trasnced essence per level (you smoking??)
and thennn!!!
+7 to +9 --> 20m per levels (not sure if serious....) and then 60 (ahahahaahahhahahahaha ) trascended essence per level

don't get me wrong, db developers are quite generous, but if you want players to spend money, give better incentives, don't just make everything absurdly out of league for f2p//minnow//dolphin..
to max a draco you WILL spend 155m and 410 trascended essence.
leaving aside the abusrd gold requirement...
410 t essence means 410 PER TYPE (aka 1230 essence......), or a whopping ~115 "sharded" sss char..
whoever felt this was anyway doable?

I'll leave my tbw base, it's totally undoable upgrading him to max... completely out of league...
already the amount of essence for a single buster is high, but you make do... the amount of stuff required for a trascended is not even funny...

technically I can craft t ravengale (have both her to ult, and sasha to ult), but the thought of those 50 trascended is like.. "yeah let's not"...

It's definitely a slog, especially if you're new or returning after a break. If it makes you feel any better, they drastically reduced the cost in the latest Korean patch. Of course, there will be something newer to grind for and that change is a long way out for global.

Just focus on a few Transcended that you really want. If you are casual about grinding but have your eye on lots of T units, you're never going to feel like you're making progress. Right now I have Blackaria and GS. I only plan to make Llywelyn and maybe one other Angel. I'm probably only going to make 2 Bodens when they release as well. It's a pretty manageable goal to have 2 max T units between each....type?

If you want 3 to 4 of every kind though, yeah it's going to take forever.

It is a lot, no doubt about it, but it's doable. I have Max GS and my BA is at +7. I'm only able to grind for about 3 hours during the week but I grind all day on the weekends. Two max (almost) Transcended in a little over 2 weeks. A lot of that depends on essence drop RNG, of course. Try not to think about the math of it, just hit that auto button. :D

Actually they noticed problem of requirements getting out of hand and from what I'm reading ch5 will reduce prices and requirements

Only 1 deity to create Key

Total cost of ulting key from 550 essences to 108 Trans essences (so 324 normal ones)
Ulting trans from 760 to 590 essences

Plus normal essences are gone and someone on reddit mentioned they exchanged them 1:1 at ch5 release

I don't think this part is correct. As far as I've read, the new area will drop all 3 essences, same as Ch 4.

Yeah it will definitely be tougher to catch up after that long of a break. I'd skip a wave or something, max/ult your units that you have now and save up to max a unit later. Say, skip Angels and get a Boden or something.

I'm on US. Feel free to send me a friend request if you are too. Same alias as here.

The only way I'm able to sort of keep up with trans releases is 24/7 shoe farming. My tablet is my DB farming device these days. Even then I'm having to pick and shoes what modes I want to specialize in. Made kind of a bad call with maxing gaela. She isn't the TDC counter I was expecting her to be. So now I'm having to ult my pluto which I had avoided for the longest. He's by far the most useless key in the game.
