Final Fate TD: Top Characters (Tier List)
Gallery and classes of heroes. All the heroes of the game are in the gallery and are sorted by class. There are five of them:
- Archers (bow);
- Sorcerers (wand);
- Mages (book);
- Warriors (sword);
- Deities (deity).
Available heroes are presented in color, and not received ones are in black and white. There is a general list. By clicking on a specific hero, you see his basic characteristics and can pump sympathy.
Get diamonds from the gallery for unlocking a new character. Don’t forget to go there and collect your rewards.
Hero ranks. Heroes are ranked according to four ranks: R, SR, SSR, SSSR. You start playing as R and SR-rank heroes, forming a fighting squad from them in the early stages of the game. They are subsequently replaced by SSR and SSSR heroes. The quality of the squad and the size of the rank bonuses depend on the ranks of the heroes.
What heroes should you use and download? Getting SSR-ranked heroes is easy enough in the early days of the game if you take part in newbie promotions and follow our tips for getting started right. Use SR heroes during this period, but get ready to replace them with stronger ones. It is recommended to actively download and collect SSR heroes with the prospect of collecting a squad from SSSR heroes. We recommend downloading SR-fighters only at the beginning of the game, R-heroes should not be pumped at all.
Click on "Details" in the hero card to see his characteristics, history, skills and a list of talents that will be unlocked at different levels of awakening. It also reflects the heroes with whom the character has activated proximity.
The best heroes (Tier List). The most powerful heroes in the game are deities. It is these characters of the SSSR rank that have the highest characteristics and have the effects of submission in relation to all other classes. Best team-building tactics: Gradually replace Top-4 and Top-3 heroes (table below) with Top-2 and Top-1 heroes.
|SSSR-deities (Top-1)||Elysia, Eris, Orion, Nero.|
|SSSR Heroes (Top 2)||Lunara, Inari, Catherine, Yama, Azazel, Valkyrie, Vulcan, Lucia.|
|SSR Heroes (Top 3)||Edesia, Athena, Empress, Beira, Nathair, Revi, Morgana, Leopold, Da Vinci, Angela, Apollo, Yuri.|
|SR-heroes (Top-4)||Eve, Tara, Yutu, Umbra, Pan, Sniper Mk.II, Kid, Baal.|
The SSSR deity Orion can be won in one of the newbie promotions, and the SSSR hero Vulcan can be picked up when the new server promotion is completely closed.
Final Fate TD: Character Leveling Guide
By clicking "Hero", you will be taken to the section with the heroes of the current team. For convenience, the total BR of the squad is displayed at the top of the screen (sign of crossed swords), so you can always track the progress of improvements made. Click "Improve" under the chibi image of any character to get to the main leveling menu.
Level up. To upgrade a level, click "Upgrate" in the "Improve" section. When increasing, ethers (Ether) are consumed, which come in three varieties - regular, blue and purple. Depending on its type, the ether gives experience to fill the scale of the current level of the hero. The pumping can be done once or five levels up at once.
Hero level cannot exceed player level. Level up your characters immediately as you level up your game account. It is best to improve the heroes evenly, so that all the fighters in the party are equal in strength.
Promotion and increasing the stardom (Promote). For this type of pumping, use the "essences of emptiness" (obtained in activities, in promotions, when completing daily quests and in the Daily Wish). As the scale of experience is filled, the character increases in rank, which leads to an increase in the indicators of his properties (attack, defense, health, speed). Materials can be selected manually or automatically in 1 click ("Quick Select").
Every time you reach the 3rd rank, you will need gems to carry out the promotion itself and increase the stardom of the hero. After using the gem, the character adds a star, and the pumping of the ranks of the current stardom starts again from the 1st rank. The further you advance the hero and increase his stardom, the more essences and gems you will need.
Awakening. Awakening contributes to the growth of indicators of properties, individual characteristics and skills. To awaken, you need fragments of an identical hero, or a hero of the same rank. Awakening progress is reflected in the character card with an "Ex" icon with a numerical value that shows the number of awakenings made. Each time, the requirements for fragments for awakening become more complicated.
Strengthening due to equipment. The hero uses 4 types of equipment: wand, helmet, armor and shoes. Each class has its own equipment. Men’s and women’s equipment is also different. The equipment has a different quality, while access to use opens as the account level grows. When a suitable outfit appears in the arsenal, in the cards of some heroes, on the "Equip All" button, a red dot lights up - this means that you can change your character into better outfit.
You can also change the outfit manually - to do this, click on the item and select from the list that opens with what equipment you want to replace it. Equipment of one color is a set. Strive to collect sets of equipment, because when using them, the hero receives additional increases in characteristics.
If you managed to get hold of more powerful equipment of a different color, then feel free to use it, even if it destroys the current set. High quality equipment will compensate for the loss of the bonus.
Increasing the level of equipment. The level of equipment is determined by the level of the game account x2. For example, if the account level is 36, then the maximum possible level of equipment is 72. To increase the level of all equipped equipment, click "Enhance All" in the hero card, or choose a specific type of equipment and click "Enhance". Pumping is carried out for gold.
Do not forget to pump the equipment of all heroes after increasing the level of your game account!
Reset pumping. You can reset the hero’s leveling if the need arises. To do this, click "Rebirth" in his card. When resetting, you will be returned 100% of the materials that you spent on leveling up, promoting, awakening and strengthening this character. The reset cost is 100 diamonds.
Installing runes. In total, the hero can use 5 runes. Rune slots open gradually, as the level of the game account increases:
- 1 slot - initially;
- 2 slot - at level 40;
- 3 slot - at level 50;
- 4 slot - at level 60;
- 5th slot - at level 70.
Runes come in different levels and properties (runes of damage, crit, health, attack, speed, etc.). Depending on the choice of a particular rune, the character will receive a corresponding increase in properties. Runes are presented in the form of geometric shapes: triangles, squares and polygons. The more "corners" a rune has, the higher its level.
The red dot on the rune image indicates the possibility of replacing it with a rune of a higher quality.
Crafting runes. Crafting three low-level runes allows you to get one rune of the next level. To go to the craft, click on the runes of any hero, and then click "Go to combine". Select the runes to combine and confirm by clicking "Combine" (see screenshot above).
Sympathy boost. Sympathy is pumped in the gallery. For this improvement you need to "give" the character gifts that can be obtained in the game "Rock, Paper, Scissors". To start pumping sympathy, select a character and click on the collected gifts. The progress of improving the level of sympathy is shown by a gradually filling heart.
When the heart becomes red, the hero’s sympathy increases by 1 level, and he gets an increase in properties. After improvement, the heart changes its status and becomes colorless again, until the next pumping. The higher the liking level, the more items you need to improve.
For pumping sympathy, you get additional gifts, incl. diamonds and fragments of heroes.
Game of "Rock, Scissors, Paper". Click on any unlocked character in the Courtyard to play Rock-Paper-Scissors with him. 5 free attempts to play with each hero are available daily, then for diamonds. For the game you get items for pumping sympathy: for a win - of a higher quality, for a loss - of a lower quality. Winning progress is represented by a victory bar at the bottom of the activity screen. Upon reaching 10, 20, 30, and 40 victories, you will receive a victory chest with the best items for pumping sympathy.
For a fee of 50 diamonds, you can arrange a Free Win - a win-win game.
Additional pumping. Customize your game account to get bonuses to your squad BR. This is possible due to:
- Main character skin updates. Click the account icon in the upper left corner and click "Appearance". You can choose any of the open characters, from R to SSR class, as the main character’s skin. Depending on the selected skin, you will receive an additional increase to one of the characteristics and a bonus to BR.
- Title. Titles are awarded for participating in activities. Each title adds some stats to you, thereby increasing BR.
Final Fate TD: How to Build the Best Squad?
The composition of the squad and its quality. The squad consists of 8 fighters. The best composition assumes the presence in the party of 2 heroes from each class: archers, sorcerers, magicians and warriors. In terms of quality, the game distributes units into 4 types, from smallest to largest:
- Recommended: consisting of 4 SSR heroes and 4 SR heroes.
- Advanced: 8 SSR rank heroes.
- Expert: consisting of 4 SSSR heroes and 4 SSR heroes.
- Master: 8 SSSR rank heroes.
Rank bonuses. A squad of heroes of the same rank receives bonuses for the entire group of fighters:
- A squad of SSSR rank heroes: attack + 15%, health + 15%, range + 5%, increase in strength + 8%, bonus to skill level + 5%, damage bonus + 15%.
- A squad of heroes of SSR rank: attack + 10%, health + 10%, increase in strength + 5%, damage bonus + 10%.
- A squad of SR rank heroes: attack + 5%, damage bonus + 5%.
Remember that higher ranked heroes are always stronger. If you have an SSR or SSSR rank fighter, be sure to place him in the party, even if this leads to the loss of the rank bonus. Such a character will give the unit a larger increase in BR than activating the bonus.
Submission effect. Each class of heroes is capable of increasing their damage by 20% against another specific class. This bonus is used in PvP and in boss battles and is called the "class subjugation effect" (see screenshot above). It means the following:
- Archers deal 20% more damage to wizards;
- Wizards deal 20% more damage to warriors;
- Warriors do 20% more damage to mages;
- Mages deal 20% more damage to archers.
Deities are a special class, their subjugation effect affects all other classes, that is, they always deal 20% more damage to other heroes.
Use the experience of the ranked players to determine the placement of heroes in a battle party.
Replacing heroes in the squad. To replace a hero in a combat squad, go to the "Hero" menu and select the card of the hero you want to change. Then click "Change" on the right. You will see a list of all the heroes available. Choose your preferred one and click "Replace". The selected hero will appear in your combat squad. Keep in mind that you cannot place two identical heroes in a party.
You must have a collected pumped party for all the activities of the game. We do not recommend assembling teams for each type of activity - it is very long, costly and ineffective. It is best to have one strong team of the highest ranked fighters.
Formation building. To select a formation press "Formation" in the heroes menu. Here you can change the location in the battle party, defining the order of the move of each character. Just hold down the icon of a specific fighter and drag it to the desired location. Knowing the composition of the enemy team, you can arrange the fighters in the party so that the submission effect works on each turn. This is very useful in both PvP and PvE.
Adding support heroes. Click "Support" to add support heroes to the party and strengthen BR teams. 8% of the indicators of damage, defense, health and spell enhancement of support heroes will be added to the properties of the squad. As the level of the game account grows, you will be able to add more support heroes to the team, a total of 8. To increase the strength of support, pump the corresponding characters.
Choose to support characters with available proximity activation. You can find out about this by the "Available to activate" label in the hero list. Such characters are able to develop affection with the heroes of the squad, which further increases its BR.
The bonds of intimacy. The presence of fighters with activated proximity in a squad gives an additional increase to their properties. To see who your fighters can tie the knot with, press the "Affinity" button in the card of any hero from the squad. The menu that opens will list all the heroes of the party and possible combinations.
Try to activate as many proximity bonds as possible to maximize the BR of the squad. The inscription "Activated Affinity" at the top of the list indicates the number of active nodes (see screenshot). Remember that you can also activate bonds with support heroes.
Final Fate TD: Getting new heroes in the tavern
Summoning in the tavern is the main way to get new heroes. There are two types: regular and elite. Summoning books are used to summon and gold is paid. You can make single calls or x10 - ten calls in one click. With a shortage of books, you can pay for calls with diamonds.
Buying x10 summons in the tavern for diamonds will cost you less than purchasing ten summoning books in the store.
The usual call. Drop Chances:
- SR heroes - 5%;
- R-heroes - 25%;
- Essence of the Void I - 40%
- Essence of Void II - 30%
Elite appeal. Drop chances:
- SSSR heroes - 0.5%;
- SSR heroes - 2%;
- SR heroes - 10%;
- R-heroes - 20%;
- Essence of Void I - 47.5%
- Essence of Void II - 20%
Do not spare books and try to summon new heroes as often as possible. This is the best chance to qualitatively change the composition of the battle party, activate new rank bonuses, subordination effects and bonds of intimacy. Remember that even weak characters will come in handy to strengthen other fighters.
Hero rework and Tavern shop. Press the "Recycle" button in the Tavern to recycle the heroes of the first level you don’t need. For them you get currency for the "Shop", where you can buy fragments of heroes SSR and SSSR-ranks.
The Tavern Shop is a great way to get missing pieces to get high-ranked heroes.
Bonus heroes on the new server. The game on the new server makes it possible to get heroes for summons in the Tavern. For the first 30 Elite Summons, you are guaranteed to get a random SSR hero, and for 300 - an SSSR hero. In addition, you get 5 Elite Summons each if you complete 25, 35 and 45 Elite Summons in a row without receiving SSR heroes.
Final Fate TD: Tips for Getting Started Right
Final Fate TD is a tower defense game where you have to assemble a team of heroes to defend the world from the second coming of the Demon King. To make your journey successful and rewarding, make sure you start the game correctly and follow the rules below.
1. Think about the security of your data. When you first log in, you are prompted to link your game account to Google Play, Facebook, or use a guest account. Please note that when choosing a guest account, all game data will be saved only on the current device, and in the event of a technical failure, you risk losing it. In addition, you will not be able to transfer guest account data to another device if the need arises.
We recommend linking your account to Google Play. This is the most reliable way to save your gameplay and ensure you can continue playing on another device.
2. Select a server. After installing and logging into the application, you are automatically taken to the newest server. Servers in Final Fate TD appear with enviable regularity and are divided into 3 groups: Asian, American and European. You are taken to the server closest to you in time zone. If you think that it will be easier for you to play on servers with different time zones, then choose the preferred one in manual mode.
The correct selection of the server is very important, since access to a number of gaming activities opens at a strictly defined time. The newness of the server also matters. Start your journey on a new server - so it will be much easier for you to develop, join a good guild, get into the ratings and get more rewards.
You can adhere to the following strategy: for the purpose of "training", play on the current server for 2-3 days to understand the intricacies of passing and pumping. With the opening of a new server, go to it, and start the main path, being a prepared player.
3. Take some time to play. At the very beginning, it is very important to understand the game, go through the first stages of the campaign, open most of the activities, assemble a team and pump the heroes hard. All this will take you time that should not be wasted. That is why we advise you to start the game on a free day off in order to be as online as possible and devote yourself to the process. In the future, when you figure it out and enter the game mode, you can enter it at any convenient time.
By being active online at the beginning of the game, you will forever ensure your stable development and even be able to compete for top places in the ratings along with donators.
Final Fate TD: Secrets of Successful Defense
Detachment placement. Before the start of the battle, you see the location on which you need to place the soldiers of the squad. By pressing "Start" from different ends of the location, monsters will begin to attack. The task of the squad: to prevent the penetration of monsters into the end point with the main character and by common forces to defeat them all.
By pressing the "x3" button during the battle, you will increase the speed of movement of enemies. Use this option in easy battles when you are confident in strength and victory.
Information about the enemies. Click "Enemy info" to find out information about the enemies and their number. It evaluates the strength, health and resistance of enemies to physical and magical attacks. The "-НР" indicator is the amount of health that the enemy will take away from the final protected hero. Most of all health is taken away by bosses.
Pay special attention to the indicators of enemy resistance to different types of attacks. Against monsters with physical resistance, you need to put magicians and sorcerers, and with magic - archers and warriors.
Using artifacts (Swamp). Artifacts are relics that heroes can take into battles. There are 4 artifacts in total, to unlock them you need to go through the corresponding stages of chapters 1 and 2. Types of artifacts:
- Sword of the Apocalypse - releases a destructive force that hits all enemies;
- Eternal Banner - inspires heroes, increasing their strength;
- Shackles of the Abyss - capable of capturing and slowing down enemies;
- Thunder Engine - capable of generating thunder, destroy everything in your path.
In battle, you can choose 1 of the artifacts and, accordingly, use his skill. After collecting all 4 artifacts, you will unlock their pumping for improvement gems. Pumping artifacts will give an increase to the properties of all the heroes of the battle party.
Using different artifacts gives different bonuses that can be changed depending on the complexity of the stage.
Mana and the use of super attacks. You can see the mana replenishment scale during the battle in the upper left corner. Mana is accumulated by killing enemies, its maximum amount is 50. In battle, you use three super blows that consume mana:
- The first one increases the strength of the selected hero. Consumes 10 Mana;
- The second is freezing rain, capable of destroying enemies in a selected radius. Consumes 10 Mana;
- The third is the ability of the applied artifact. Consumes 30 Mana.
After using the super blow, it takes a cooldown, during this period you will not be able to use it even if you have mana.
The use of super attacks takes place in manual mode. Do not forget to react in time and spend the accumulated mana, not allowing it to burn out. This will make it easier for the fighters and finish the battle faster.
How to get through battles correctly?
1. Try a different arrangement. There is a lot of randomness in the game: the first time the squad can successfully complete the battle, and the second time it can be completely defeated. Monsters with different resistances appear randomly at the location, so you just have to figure out where and what heroes are best placed. Don’t be discouraged when you lose and keep experimenting with the squad.
You can change the placement of the heroes during the battle. Place fighters with magic or physical attacks on the points, depending on the enemies you need to fight.
2. Focus on pumping. If you cannot go through a specific battle several times in a row, then think about pumping fighters and equipment. There are many possibilities for improving the squad, and we will talk about all in this article. Upgrade your heroes, put on the best equipment and collect sets. The game is diverse in terms of promotions, events, free offers and bonuses where you can get materials for pumping. If you use all the resources, then be sure to increase the BR of the squad.
3. Do not forget about the properties of the unit. Whenever possible, form your squad so that rank bonuses and bonds of proximity are active. Read more about this in the section on team building. Bonuses increase the properties of fighters, and bonds help them better interact with each other.
4. Place the heroes correctly. Click on the hero on the position to see the radius of damage, the type of damage (physical or magical), its properties (one target or massive) and their decoding. These are very important clues to help you place your characters correctly. Keep in mind:
- Heroes with massive damage (Group DMG) should stand near the entrances, since at the beginning the enemies are in dense groups, and a massive attack against them will be most effective.
- Heroes with Slow effects must stand at intermediate points in the location to slow down the movement of enemies.
- Heroes with single target damage (Single DMG) should be located at the exit, so as to finish off enemies who managed to slip through all defense points.
The "Quick Deploy" button offers automatic deployment of fighters, but we do not recommend using it. Manual construction using the above tips helps to better protect the location.
5. Use super hits correctly. Super attacks are designed to help your fighters defend themselves. Use them so that cooldowns alternate, and you always have a charged Ultimate at the ready. This is especially important in the last seconds of the battle, when single enemies can make their way to the final goal. Ice rain will help you the most here - just apply it on the last enemies.
Final Fate TD: Story Campaign Guide
To enter the story campaign, click "Conquest" at the bottom of the main screen. The campaign map is divided into chapters containing stages with 6 battles. The fourth and sixth battle is a boss fight. There are 2 difficulty modes: normal and elite. Elite stages include only one battle, while the drop in elite battles is much better. In normal battles, you spend 6 stamins, in elite battles - 12.
Stage information. Before the start of the battle, you see information about the current stage:
- What is he like;
- Completion rewards (drop);
- Collecting stars progress. One stage can collect 18 stars. For 6, 12 and 18 stars, you open chests with additional prizes.
When passing a 3-star battle, a blitz becomes available - a repeated passage without a battle. Like normal combat, blitz consumes stamina.
Click on the heroes on the map labeled "Story". This will take you into the plot of the game with dialogues between the characters. For watching dialogs, you get diamonds.
Battle score (stars). The stars that you received after the battle are used to evaluate the success of the battle. Three stars are perfect defense when all enemies have been successfully cleared and none of them have made it to the target. Earned stars are accumulated from stage to stage. In addition to chests, for every 10 stars you can pick up Summoning Books. The total number of stars and books that can be earned is shown on the right side of the campaign screen.
Exploration of territories. Send heroes to explore unlocked areas of the map. Depending on the character you choose, you will receive rewards: various shards and materials for pumping. The further along the map you have advanced, the more heroes you can send on the way.
To start the exploration press the "Explore" button on the map, enter the menu, select the hero and press "Explore" again to start the countdown. The research takes 12 hours. To collect your rewards, click "Claim". There is the possibility of collecting double the amount of rewards for 200 diamonds, but this is a waste of premium currency.
Being busy with research has no effect on the hero’s battles in a combat party.
Auto collection of awards. Collect the rewards for the previous stages by clicking on the chest on the right in the campaign section. Auto accumulation is valid for 12 hours. The rate of accumulation per hour and the value of rewards depend on the distance of the campaign stages. Among them: experience for the account, gold, materials for promotion and gems.
Log in to the campaign at least once every 12 hours to collect your rewards. Outside this limit, they stop accumulating.
Bounty Awards. In the Bounty activity, you are invited to find some items during the campaign stages and get a reward for this. To participate, go to Bounty and read the conditions for receiving the prize. If you are not satisfied with the prize, click "Refresh" to change it. Click on the items. You will be presented with a list of campaign stages where you can get them. Select a stage and play the battle - manually or in blitz. When you collect all the items, the "Submit" button will become active to receive the Bounty prize. You have 5 attempts to participate in the activity per day.
Final Fate TD: Daily Challenges Guide
There are currently 6 daily challenges in the game. Access to them opens as the level of the game account increases or depending on the days spent in the game. Call types:
- Rumble. Fight with teams of other players to assign their hero badges and get rare runes as rewards.
- World Boss. Challenge the world server boss for hitting the damage rating. Battles bring you rewards with hero shards, gold and items for pumping;
- Universe Conflict. Opens on the 3rd day of the online game. Set up a defense team to take part in battles against other players. You get 60 points for a victory, and 30 points for a defeat. The rank in the rating is determined by the number of points. Ranked rewards are awarded at the end of the season. The season lasts 7 days.

- Treasure Maze. It opens upon reaching the 50th level of the game account. Gives you the opportunity to get treasures and materials for pumping.
Rumble is one of the PvP arenas where you fight teams of other players’ heroes. Each battle spends 4 units of revival (Eduarance). The maximum amount of respawn available is 30. 1 unit of revival is restored every 30 minutes. You can restore the revival ahead of time by using takoyaki (there is a free attempt for diamonds).
If none of the proposed opponents suits you according to BR, click "Refresh" to choose your preferred one. Always choose opponents with lower BR. Rumble battles can be skipped by clicking "End now".
For victories in battles, you get a currency - hero badges. If you win, you get 10% of the opponent’s hero icons (maximum you can win 100 icons), and if you lose, you lose 10% of your icons. Hero badges are used in the Rumble store, which sells runes of various rarities.
Spend hero badges in the shop and don’t save them. Otherwise, your reserves will constantly be lost to strong winning opponents.
Depending on the total size of the won hero badges, you additionally receive reward chests with runes. All battle records are displayed in the battle report ("Log"). From here, you can take revenge on your offenders by pressing "Revenge", but do not get carried away with revenge - if the BR of your squad is less than that of the defeating enemy, you will lose anyway and waste your revival.
The World Boss Battle season runs every 3 days and ends at 22:00 on the last day. The next season starts at 8.00 the next day. In the period from 22.00 to 08.00 the competition is not available. In this battle, you need to fight the world boss to get into the damage rating. Your combat squad takes part in the battle. The battle ends with the death of the last fighter. You get 3 types of rewards for boss battles:
- For ongoing calls. Rewards are given for the first 3 boss battles during the day. Attempts are reset at 00.00.
- For the damage done. Rewards for reaching aggregate damage thresholds. Among them are gold and shards of SSSR heroes. All achievements are reset when the next season is closed.
- Ranking awards. Rewards sent by mail at the end of the season (after 10 pm on the last day). Depends on the place in the overall server damage rating.
Press the "Skip Battle" button to skip the battle. The system will automatically calculate the damage done by the team, and you will immediately receive a challenge reward.
Final Fate TD: Ancient Realm Walkthrough
The Ancient Realm is a 300-story tower with bosses. Your team moves from floor to floor, "cleaning" the area. With each floor, the power of enemies grows, as do the rewards for defeating them. Depending on the prizes, there are several types of Old Kingdom towers.
Before the battle. By clicking "Challenge", you see a window before the battle, where the enemy and possible prizes for a successful challenge are indicated. Check the box next to "Skip battle" to skip the battle and see the results immediately. If you want to fight, just press "Challenge" again.
Battle. The battle takes place in automatic mode and represents alternate fights of the party’s heroes with the current enemy. At the bottom of the screen, you see health bars. You can increase the speed of the battle and end the battle ahead of schedule by clicking "End now".
Activate rank bonuses and submission effects to successfully close battles on each floor!
Blitz. Blitz are rewards for completing floors of the Old Kingdom. Every day you can get two free blitz, and then you will have to pay diamonds.
Additional rewards. In addition to the main prizes for defeating the enemy, you get additional rewards for clearing every five floors (fragments of SSR heroes and diamonds). To claim your prizes, click "Clear Reward" on the main activity screen. The higher the floor, the more you get.
Final Fate TD: Dungeon Battles
Dungeon battles are a source of experience, gold, and artifacts. Depending on the resources mined, dungeons have 3 types. Any dungeon can be completed 2 times a day. One playthrough consumes 12 stamins.
Complexity. Each dungeon has five difficulty levels:
The first difficulty is initially open, the subsequent ones are unlocked as the level of the game account increases.
Assessment of the passage. As in the campaign, dungeon combat is rated based on the number of stars earned. Three stars - a successful battle in which none of the monsters were able to get to the destination. Two and One Stars - an unsuccessful passage in which you could not cope with the influx of enemies.
When you complete a three-star dungeon, blitz becomes available to you - automatically receiving rewards without going through a battle.
Battle. The difficulty of the dungeon determines the trajectory of the monsters’ movement around the location. On normal difficulty, enemies move in a straight line, and the squad heroes are on either side of the path. The exception is the artifact dungeon: in it the heroes stand in a maze, the enemies move along two paths (see screenshot).
You can try to complete the 3-star dungeon as many times as you like. If you lose, the chance of passing is not counted!
Final Fate TD: All the secrets of the Arena passage

Final Fate TD: Guild and Activity Guide
Joining a guild. Find the right guild by browsing the various rankings and studying the recruitment chat messages. It is very important to be in an active, strong guild. Only such a community will help develop in the game, receive additional rewards for guild activities and earn more guild coins for pumping heroes.
Join a guild whose members speak the same language as you. This will make it easier for you to communicate and coordinate your actions.
Guild activity. Guild activity depends on the activity of its members. Each stamina used by a member adds one point of guild activity. The maximum amount of activity that 1 member can bring to the guild daily is 600 units. If a member leaves the guild, all the activity that he brought to the community is reset. New members of the guild can invest in the replenishment of activity only after 24 hours have passed from the entry.
If you see that there is bad activity in your guild, change it urgently, do not linger in unpromising communities.
Praise. With the help of guildmates, you can get additional stamina through praise. To do this, select from the list of participants the one you want to praise (the "Praise" button). Please note that his level cannot be lower than yours. 1 attempt is available per day. There are two types of praise:
- Common - for 3200 gold. Gives 25 stamines;
- Premium for 35 diamonds. Gives 50 stamines. Unlocks on VIP2.
Spend your daily attempts at praise and keep them from burning out. The more stamin, the better!
Guild shop. Buy equipment in the store using the guild coins you earn. Keep in mind that you can buy 1 item only 1 time per day. When you leave the guild, your coins do not disappear and remain with you. You can spend them in the new guild shop.
Astral kingdom. To pick up prizes in the Astral Realm, you need to present the three most powerful heroes from three players of the same guild. In this case, the Astral Kingdom will unlock its gifts (gold, guild coins, etc.), and all three participants will be able to receive them. One receipt attempt is available per day. To participate in the activity, click in the guild menu "Astral Realm" and click on an empty slot. Your hero with the highest BR will automatically take it.
Even if you’ve spent your reward attempt, you can still re-place the hero to help those who haven’t yet participated. The higher the BR of placed heroes, the more rewards you will be able to get in the Astral Realm.
Guild dungeon. All guild members must take part in cleaning the dungeon - this is the only way to defeat the monsters living there. There are 2 attempts per day for each one. You can fight in the dungeon alternately. At the same time, enemies will not restore HP between battles.
In this activity, you are given 1.5 minutes to form a formation and 60 seconds to fight. In battle, 200 mana is provided for the use of super attacks. The enemies themselves go in a circle, you and your heroes need to make the best use of all opportunities in order to clean up as much as possible. For the battles fought, guild coins are given and the damage rating is formed. The participant who takes the first place in the rating receives an increased reward. If guild members can clear the entire dungeon within 7 days, they will receive additional prizes.
Guild Guardian. The Guardian is a deity that gives guild members additional buffs when completing a dungeon, guild war and other guild activities. To maintain strength and increase experience, offerings must be brought to the guard. There are 3 types of guards, each of which gives different buffs. Every day at 20.30, the guard loses some of its strength, while the more powerful guard always loses more. The guild needs to monitor the replenishment of the guard’s strength. As soon as the guard receives the required amount of experience, he grants the guild members a divine aura that increases the characteristics of their skills.
