Tips & Tricks for Playing Dynasty Defense: Mini Heroes for PC
Choose your Heroes Wisely
In this game, the kind of army you build will dictate whether you will be victorious in battles. As such, you should apply a bit of smarts with your hero collection. Turn to the game’s well-crafted cards, which detail the characteristics of each hero. Doing so will give you an idea on how to mix and match heroes in formations where individual fighters complement each other well. Also, make it a point to collect all types of heroes in order to have more options to work with when matching up characters for battle.
Do not go into battle without a Strategy
A strong army may get you far in this game but a smart battle plan is an even more powerful weapon. All your formations should have a tactical advantage going into battle. For example, when facing a group of bandits or rebels, you can take them out with brute force. Placing gunners or a few nasty monsters at the front of your formation will do the trick. Those who make it past the gunners can then be met by mages who will stop them in their tracks with their powerful magic.
Alternatively, when facing an army, you can place archers at the back who will work on shooting down handfuls of combatants before they even make it to the towers. A gunner and mage can then take their place at the front. The former character takes out the attackers that manage to make it past the hail of arrows, while the latter puts up protective spells to block the enemy’s attacks. Ultimately, it is all about coming up with the best strategy to take out the specific type of enemies you are facing.
Adapt on the Fly
Sometimes, the enemy will turn out to be more powerful than anticipated or have a better battle plan than yours. As a result of this, you should always have backups to your original formation. Luckily, the game allows you to switch up your formation in the middle of a battle. You can also turn to your special abilities (storm or hail attacks, fire shots, and the likes) when you find your team overpowered during battle.
Upgrade your Heroes Equally
Lastly, it is essential to point out that no hero is more valuable than others in this game. The differences in skills are what add up to create formidable formations. So, when leveling up, give each hero an equal upgrade. It will boost every hero’s contribution to the team in equal measure.
