The Lunar Year Heroes receive additional perks if you use them in the event.

:sweat_smile: Easy, Normal and Advanced Modes

There are now three Modes for the Seasonal Event — Easy, Normal, and Advanced. You can play any or all three, and must complete each Stage sequentially in that mode to advance, but you can start with any tier what you want.

:triangular_flag_on_post: Stages

Unlike other Seasonal events the Lunar New Year has got only 10 Stages per Difficulty Mode.

There is a total energy requirement of 38 WE for Easy, 68 WE for Normal & 98 WE for Hard; with a combined total of 204 WE for all 3 difficulties.

:no_entry_sign: No Hero Restrictions

Unlike Challenge Events, there are no restrictions on Hero or Troop rarity in the Easy, Normal, and Advanced Modes. There are also no restrictions on Hero Classes, unlike Class Trials.

You’re free to use any heroes you’d like!

:repeat: No Replaying Completed Stages

Unlike Challenge Events, Seasonal Events don’t allow replaying a completed Stage — much like how Quests & the Ninja Tower work.

Once you beat each Stage, it’s locked, and once you beat the entirety of the Seasonal Event, you can’t play any more.

If you fail at a Stage, you can retry as many times as you’d like, up until the Event ends.

:star2: Epic Hero Tokens Can Be Used for Seasonal Summoning


The Seasonal Summons replaces the regular Epic Hero Summons.

Because of that, unlike Challenge Event Summons, the Summoning Portal for Seasonal Events allows using saved up Epic Hero Tokens that can otherwise normally only be used for Epic Hero Summons.

That makes Seasonal Events the only place you can currently use Epic Hero Tokens for a chance at non-Season 1 heroes.

You’ll also have the same chance at the HOTM as usual when using Epic Hero Tokens. As the event active in January and February too so you will have the chance for the January and February HoTMs: Roughian & Nurgib and Viselus.

:partying_face: Festive Stronghold

The Stronghold and the several areas of the base is decorated with lampions and various items.

  • Are there any Stages you’re having a hard time with, and would like advice on beating?
  • Are you using particular items to beat Lunar New Year stages?
  • How do you find playing with the Fireworks Rockets ?
  • Do you have insights on strategy to share, or questions?
  • Is there anything about Lunar New Year that you’re wondering about?

Beta information:


Is this event ends at March or February?

The event verbiage was copied since it says Return to Morlovia (Halloween) Event is (almost) Here! and shows a span from Jan 18 - Mar 5., clearly much longer than 18 days.

I’ve updated the Family Bonus verbiage on the simplified version of the guide:


Sorry, february, I have fixed it.

Thx, I have updated your guide in the OP.

the 3 kingdom heroes are bosses? okaaaaay, SG obviously ran out of time to design the other 10 Lunar Zodiac animals. instead, re-using the 3 kingdom bosses because, you know, China.




:face_vomiting: That’s just lazy and wrong…


Just dump anything Chinese into lunar new year…
I thought they love making new 5*s? How can they have no time to make new heroes?
5 legendaries (rabbit, tiger, horse, dragon, sheep)
4 epics (dog, rat, rooster, ox)
3 rare (monkey, snake, pig)

There, the whole lunar new year roster


In a world where social responsibility should apply, and food sources are encouraged to be sustainably and responsibly sourced, the way $GG is treating this Lunar New Year is anything but. Talk about this event being

Irresponsibly Sourced

I know right? They should have had ample number of time and the capabilities to release 12 heroes, but chose not stay their hand and try to do this with their usual, release a (very) few and trying to milk this year after year? But with the way they are releasing heroes, by the time the pig gets released, it would have already power crept past the tiger. Which doesn’t really make sense.

In that sense, I would argue that every zodiac animal (even though the order they were determined was the result of a race) should be treated somewhat equally. All 12 animals should be legendary, but this 5* version should be attached to the earthly branches they are associated with. The 3* and 4* can also be made up of the mixture of the same animals, but more generic in the names. The current names of Xiaotu and Laohu probably would’ve suited more for the 3* and 4*.


Since they are using War of the 3 Kingdoms Heroes as bosses maybe they should be added to the summon portal so there isn’t just 2 new heroes. I, for one, will be saving my gems and EHTs for a friendlier portal, maybe Springvale if they follow suit and add more heroes like Christmas did, especially since I already pulled the Hero of the Month for January.


You should update this :stuck_out_tongue:


Also see a pumpkin :jack_o_lantern: too :sparkler:

Thx, I have fixed it.


Yeah, they should all be of equals. Now the rabbit and tiger will suck as power creep rolls in within weeks. The last one would be rat/ox and they will be much more powerful than any of the other 10 animals


Also, as we have seen so much, I wouldn’t put it past them to have Brogan show up as Lunar New Year Thug mob enemy.

I would LOVE them to make some kind of event where it has all 2* heroes as Bosses but make them quite OP lol.

No doubt they could, they have enough Brogan clones in this game to make an event that contains all of them as enemies and bosses and call it the Brogan-verse of Madness.


Does anyone know what the mystic rings the flavor text refers to are?

I believe it’s an inside joke referencing the Ancient Tiger Rare Titan that gives a chance at Mystic Rings.
