NOOB ?'s: Where are the 3*'s / Level up a 5*

Hello all; first time poster. I’ve been playing for between 1-2 weeks. Currently at Level 16, building SH9 with TC7. Trying to play for free.

I’ve max leveled & Ascended all my 2* hero roster; those are the ones I got from random finds or daily summon. The only 3*'s I have are the free Bane and a 3* Kailani from a daily summon. Where do I get more 3*'s to work on leveling? I don’t want to “waste” red, blue, green, and purple feeder heroes on leveling Bane if they could more effectively be going towards their own color 3*'s. Do you have to spend slowly acquired 300 gems on Elemental or Epic summons?

Current Team 1:


The Red Lvl 40 4/8 Special Zudak is sitting on the sidelines.

You’ll obviously notice that I tried spending my 300 gems on an Elemental Summon yesterday and got insanely lucky pulling 5* Elena. :open_mouth: Is there a special strategy to leveling up a 5* when you’re this early in the game? Should I wait for something or just start throwing red 1* & 2* feeder heroes at her ten at a time?

After reading some starting guides on here I’ve focused my building SH & TC to get to TC11. I’ve got 3 mines and 6 farms all at Level 8.

Thanks!

You can also get 3* from your daily summon or from your TC when high enough.

As you have no other red then sure feed hear your red 1* & 2*. No need to do 10 at a time. When you get a red 3* or 4*, you can then switch to leveling it up instead of Elena. It will take quite a while to get her leveled fully so better to do others first when you get them. But nothing lost in doing her until then.

Go to TC 13 as fast as possible. There you will get all the 3* heroes you want. :smile:

Meanwhile use the dayly summon tokens and if you get a 3* in a color you dont have one yet start training.

Good luck.

I agree with the advice given above. Also, if you aren’t already in a good active teaching alliance, you should join one. There is a thread under Alliance Recruitment that lists a number of different ones.

Also, leveling up Bane is not a waste. He’s the best yellow 3* in the game.

My alliance family, Seven Days Departed, has a helpful website that includes a comprehensive hero rating. Many useful resources.

The elusive Epic Hero Tokens are guaranteed to give you a 3*, with a chance of 4* and 5*. Even the daily summons tosses out the occasional 3* hero (see the odds under the ? icon in the upper left).

Damn, just two weeks in and already scores a 5* hero? Very lucky! It took me a couple months to score my first…only have two total.
