How to get skill tomes
Skill tomes allow you to upgrade the skills of your champions. There are different tiers of skill tomes with legendary skill tomes being the best. Legendary skill tomes allow you to upgrade a legendary or lower rarity champion. You can upgrade an epic champion or lower rarity’s skills with an epic skill tome and so on. There are several ways to get your hands on skill tomes, but the epic and legendary ones are very scarce. Therefore, you should use them with caution and not waste them on low-rarity champions or low tier champions. You can learn more about the tier of a champion in our RAID: Shadow Legends tier list.
You can obtain skill tomes by completing missions, claiming progression and daily login rewards, opening chests from clan bosses, clan activity, and the arena. Another way to obtain skill tomes is by participating in events. However, an event that offers skill tomes might not be running at the time of your reading. When you collect enough stars in faction wars, you also receive skill tomes. Typical for most of these methods is that the farther into the rewards/content you get, the better the tier of the tome. You need to collect 335 stars in faction wars challenges before you get an epic skill tome, for example. All previous tomes are rare, but all tomes after 335 stars are either epic or legendary, so keep grinding.
To show just how rare legendary skill tomes are, you need to complete 226 missions before getting the reward of 2 legendary skill tomes from mission rewards. The first legendary skill tome you get through daily login rewards is on day 75. Therefore, you should spend your legendary and epic skill tomes wisely.
How to get chickens
Chickens are powerful items in RAID: Shadow Legends that lets you increase the rank of a champion. Because chicken can be used as fodder when ranking up a champion, they are incredibly valuable. Therefore, chickens are scarce in the game. Notice, chickens have a star-ranking, which means you need a specific kind of chicken if you wish to use it as fodder for upgrading a 3-star champion for example. In this case, you would need 3-star chickens.
There are three different ways to get chickens in RAID: Shadow Legends. If you are a free-to-play player, then there are only two. The first way to get chickens is by purchasing special pack offers. You can also obtain chickens by participating in events, but there might not be an event that offers chickens at the time of your reading. However, with the introduction of faction wars, players now have a more reliable way of obtaining chickens. Every time you complete a stage in faction wars, you receive between 1 to 3 stars. Whenever you collect a certain amount of stars overall, you receive a reward. A lot of these star rewards are chickens of different star-ranks. They start at 3-star but go all the way up to 5-star once you get far into the star rewards. Here is a picture of some of the chicken rewards you can get from faction wars and the number of stars you need to collect. You can check all the rewards yourself in-game by pressing the info icon inside faction wars.
How to get energy
You need to have enough energy to challenge a stage, boss, dungeon, or any other content in RAID: Shadow Legends. Chances are you won’t find yourself in need of energy at the beginning of the game. However, once you’ve progressed for a while and start farming mastery, etc., you might find yourself running short on energy.
When you level up, you receive some more energy max, but the higher level you are, the more energy you need to spend to fight. Luckily, there are other ways to get energy. Many missions and some monthly quests have energy as a reward. You can also pull energy from chests obtained from raid bosses, raid activities, and the arena. Be sure to claim your daily login rewards if you have any left, as many of those are lots of energy. Some events do offer energy as a reward, but if it is an exchange event, you probably want to spend your event items on shards, tomes, or chickens instead. The final way to get energy is by collecting stars in faction wars to unlock star rewards.
How to get mastery scrolls
Unlocking masteries for your champions is essential for them to reach their full potential. To unlock a new mastery for a champion, you need sufficient mastery scrolls. The primary way to obtain mastery scrolls is by doing dungeons, specifically Minotaur’s Labyrinth. Every time you complete a stage in Minotaur’s Labyrinth, you receive some scrolls as a reward. The first five stages only give you basic mastery scrolls, but later stages also offer advanced scrolls and divine scrolls. Farming mastery scrolls for your champions is very simple, as it just requires you to complete stages in Minotaur’s Labyrinth over and over, but it is very energy costly.
Another way to get scrolls is by completing missions. Some missions include mastery scrolls in their rewards, but it’s very few. Therefore, if you wish to get mastery scrolls now, go for dungeon runs, they give way more scrolls per hour than doing missions.
How to get XP
Many players want to rush to level 60 as soon as possible. To do this, you need to gather a lot of XP. The primary way to get XP in RAID: Shadow Legends is by completing stages in the campaign, dungeons, faction wars, arenas, any content virtually. Besides just playing the game, players can earn extra XP for your account by collecting stars in the campaign and faction wars. Once you’ve gathered enough stars from completed stages, you receive rewards, some of which are XP. Some quests also give XP as a reward, so head into the quests tab to check out which quests are available to you at the moment.
A great way to get more XP fast is by getting XP boosters and playing a lot while they are active. XP boosters from daily login rewards, events, etc. usually last for 24 hours. If you play through the campaign while an XP booster is active, you are going to get a lot of XP fast.
How to get silver
You need a lot of silver in RAID: Shadow Legends to do things such as summoning, buying items on the marketplace, and upgrading gear. By playing through the game’s content, you will obtain a decent amount of silver. However, there are methods to get more silver faster. Many challenges give silver as a reward, and most of them are relatively simple to complete. Both the campaign and faction wars offer silver as rewards when you collect enough stars. Every stage you complete in campaign and faction wars gives you 1 to 3 stars, which count towards your campaign or faction wars star counter.
How to get potions
To ascend a champion to a higher star level and thereby increase its stats and unlock new skills, you need potions. Which potions you need to ascend a champion depends on the champion’s current star level and its affinity.
The easiest way to get potions is by farming dungeons. Not all dungeons in the game have potions in their drop pool, but many do. You can see which items you can get from a particular dungeon by checking the potion, item, and stages drop before entering a stage. You can also get potions by completing missions and quests, but you won’t get quite as many compared to farming dungeons. Chests from clan bosses, clan activities, and the arena also have a chance of containing potions. Potions also appear as star rewards in faction wars.
How to get summoning shards
T o summon champions in the Portal, you need summoning shards. Summoning is the primary way to obtain new champions in the game. There are several ways to obtain summoning shards, all of which we’ve covered in our guide on how to get new champions in RAID: Shadow Legends.
How to get gems
The premium currency in RAID: Shadow Legends is gems. You can purchase almost any kind of item in the shop if you have enough gems. Besides buying gems with real money, you can obtain them by playing the game.
Every time you level up, you receive a small number of gems. Therefore, you will passively earn gems by progressing through the game. You also get gems from progression rewards and daily login rewards, which also doesn’t require any other work than playing the game for long enough. Some quests and missions have gems as a reward, but only a few of them. Star rewards from the campaign and faction wars both have gem rewards of considerable size, so try to get as many stars as possible from each stage in these two game modes. Lastly, you also have a chance to pull gems from chests.
How to get XP brews
When leveling up champions, XP brews come in handy as an alternative to sacrificing champions. Furthermore, XP brews give a lot more XP than low level and low rarity champions.
The single most efficient way to get XP brews in the game is by farming dungeons. Most dungeons, including The Spider’s Den, have a significant chance to drop XP brews as a reward. You can also get XP brews by completing missions.
How to get glyphs
Glyphs are powerful items in RAID: Shadow Legends that can be placed on artifacts to apply additional stat boosts and buffs. Glyphs come in different ranks and can be categorized into different types. You can learn more about glyphs in our guide on how to upgrade and rank up champions.
The primary way to obtain glyphs in the game is by beating levels faction crypt stages in faction wars. Inside each crypt, you can see which glyphs have a chance to drop, the rank of those glyphs as well as their rank. You can also obtain glyphs from the occasional event, but through faction wars is the main way.
