Here is our comprehensive list of every single mecha anime (and some Tokusatsu) series, OVA, & movie ever made:
Important note about Korean works: Korean animation developed a bit late, and Japanese anime had been banned in Korea up until the late 1980s. Due to this fact, combined with the art form being in its infancy in Korea, many older Korean works were blatant knockoffs of Japanese works. These works also typically received extremely poor quality translations if they were translated at all. By the late 1990s Korean animation had finally established its footing and put out better quality and more original content. The best example of this known to english speaking regions is Iron Kid, known as Eon Kid in english. We encourage the embrace of more modern Korean animation, but take heed of this history when exploring the Korean works of old.
Hentai - This is the term for pornographic anime. While it is extremely rare for a hentai title to be released in the mecha genre, such titles do exist. In the interest of completion we have included these select few titles in the megalist, but they are appropriately noted as such. Viewers be advised.
HK Subs - Subtitled in english by english speaking regions in Asia, usually Hong Kong. These are typically lower quality due to the translators not being native english speakers or in some cases limited knowledge of english. The worst cases of these are found on bootleg DVDs which are very prevalent in some Asian countries outside of Japan.
HK Dub - On some occasions anime was dubbed in english in english speaking regions of Asia. These usually suffer the same problems as HK subs. The most infamous example is the english dub of Transformers Headmasters and Victory.
Fansub - Fan subs are usually good quality subs created by fans for anime that has never received an official license for release in the english speaking western world. A very large portion of the megalist is unlicensed, particularly anime from the 1980s or older. If an anime does get licensed, its fansubbing project will be halted. Official licenses is the universal goal for all the anime we cover.

[Updated For: v2436.12] New player / Guide / Answers / Tips & Tricks / Helpful Hints / Information
Updated with previous questions and answers incorporated into the guide.
Minor changes have been added based on recent update.
There are other guides that handle individual elements addressed here with greater detail and depth but are addressed from the point of view of players who are over level 60 or with end game in mind. This guide is intended for newer players and those who are still figuring things out, those likely below level 20.
Top of your screen:
Experience, is based on what you sell in your shop not what you sell on the market.
Energy, is based on racks and guild perks for the most part.
Gold, the standard free to play currency used for a lot of things.
Gems, the paid currency, which can be earned slowly in game for free, to buy extras.
Menu in the top right:
Store, not much use here as everything I will cover will be based on free play.
Mailbox, you will occasionally get rewards or notifications here when it has a marker check it.
Achievements, will build quickly at first but then slow down and rewards gems.
Leaderboards, for more competitive players.
Avatar, the option to customize your character.
Piggy Bank, if you miss the icon for turn in you can find it here, make sure you get this daily.
Settings are for killing music, battle speed to skip, energy saving mode on, and links at bottom.
Top left icons
Paid event sales
Current game bonuses in effect be mindful of what these can do for you
Invest in your shops evenly as you progress aim for 20-40% of your net value invested.
You will need gold to upgrade your shop and you'll want to save up for expanding.
Check the offer help icon in the middle of town to help people for free once in a guild.
Guild, more later.
Questing, more later.
Market, more later but not a lot.
Your first set of heroes are free, pair a Thief and Mage early on with each champion you get.
Since these characters are free if your first skill unlocked is trash retire the hero and try again.
You will retire heroes at a regular rate so don’t waste gold trying to get all the perfect skills.
For most of the game going with skills that boost damage are a sure bet.
Replace the Thief with Monks once you unlock them
• Give Monks your best jewelry and a common robe their robe has a higher chance to break making it less likely your rings and amulets will, they are a very cost effective class.
Replace the Mage with Druid and keep them equipped with herbs.
You can make Monks and Druids last all the way until you unlock tier five heroes if you want.
Optionally you can swap out for tier four heroes if you have the gold to burn.
For tier five you can roll all Samurai or all Spellblade, Ninja are not so great comparatively in my opinion.
Remember it is worthwhile to retire a character if their first skill is trash but trying to get all perfect skills is a waste of time and gold until you hire your last set of heroes.
Everything will break eventually and unless you’re paying real money for the monthly subscription your repair options are extremely limited. SAVE your repair kits for legendary gear only and I would suggest only legendary gear that is tier five or better. You can sell legendary items on the market for gems, with limited inventory space this is often the best bet if you end up with more than a few tier two or three legendary items. ALL gear will eventually break, you can progress your heroes with all common items well into the late game. You will need a lot of gold as you progress into the game, don’t be afraid to sell rare or epic gear on the market when possible for a big boost in gold.
Your champions have no gear, eventually they will get to the point where they can solo easier quests, which will allow you to farm low level materials without breaking expensive items on your heroes. Make sure you do the champion requests as soon as they come in, these will boost your champions to become your most powerful characters which will allow them to solo more quests for you.
I would suggest sorting your quests in the bottom right by quantity, your bosses will always be at the top. Run your bosses as often as possible, even if you have full materials because you can get keys off them. You don’t need a green smile to win a fight, as long as you have one yellow smile in the group you are almost guaranteed to win with the only exception being if you get a rare legendary type. Put Sia on higher tier quests her power is based on scale so the bigger the reward is the more powerful her ability is. Lilu is the weakest champion once she is strong enough keep her soloing the forest. Argon, Rudo and Yami can solo the caves and bog at higher levels which will save you a lot of broken gear. Once you get Polonia, refuse all the other champion requests, and focus on her, her ability works great in the higher quest areas and she can pull in a lot of loot worth a lot of gold easy. Keep your quests rolling, you’ll constantly need materials to keep crafting, and by sorting your quests by quantity what you need the most will always be on top.
Tier 1: Thief/Mage, your first two champions will help with survival. Aim to give your Thief an attack skill and Mage can do well with any skill that boosts attack/evasion/defense/hp. The soldier ability to unlock a skill early doesn't make the skill any better.
Tier 2: Monk is the best tier two hero, in my opinion, as with a lucky HP skill and attack skill along with some rare/epic jewelry they outperform tier 3 or 4 heroes. Build entire teams with them if you can, only keep your Thief/Mages if they have amazing rare/epic skills. The tier two cleric ability is worthless as you shouldn't be sending your heroes into fights where they die or are at serious risk of death. The tier two Barbarian draws more attacks but lacks evasion or real defense making them poor choices for your team when you have champions that help with survival already.
Tier 3: Knight/Druid, a well-equipped knight can last until tier five due to their naturally high defense. Your knight will do well with an attack skill or two, evasion is wasted on them. Druids are a good pair for knights, but you could easily get away with pairing two druids with Argon for a power team. Druids do well with attack/def skills, like the knight evasion is wasted on them. Musketeers lack hp/def making them poor choices for boss fights, this hero just gets out shined by the Knight/Druid combo.
Tier 4: Knight/Sorcerer, this upgrade is optional as the knight has the defense to continue to press on through tier four. If you have the gold and time, the sorcerer can out damage the druid and is a worthwhile upgrade for your teams. This isn't really a requirement though if you have Druids who lucked out with some good attack skills. The Wanderer is based on Evasion making him great for lasting though a long fight but can't outshine a Knight/Sorcerer team.
Tier 5a: All Samurai, they open every fight strong and with an attack/def skill they can power through almost any fight. The Samurai are well rounded and only lack evasion making them a pretty solid choice across the board. Optionally as before you can keep two Sorcerers from tier four with Argon for a high damage output team. Ninja would be amazing except their ability is lacking on boss fights, as soon as they get hit by an area attack, they lose their edge. Samurai start strong and hold out through the fight, while Ninja start strong but are likely to lose power the longer the fight goes on.
Tier 5b: All Spellblade, they are very well balanced team but would be a second choice only because to optimize them you'll want the Academy to keep them equipped with elements. If you don't have the academy I would suggest going with Samurai as if you don't have access to a steady supply of elements they don't do as well. Avoid evasion/hp skills and focus on attack/def to have them outperform everyone else.
Tier 6: The Tower brings some change to the traditional set up and though it is possible to run it with all dancers some might be inclined to make use of a more balanced set up. With this in mind I would say Dancers are still the best bet, but you can have 2-4 Berserkers and/or Geomancers added to the mix and do just fine. As this guide is for those who are still looking for guidance to some degree, I’m not going to put in all the possible new upgraded combinations for unlocked classes. At this point though having evasion and defense is just as important as attack, make sure you balance your skills and once you are well established don’t be afraid to reroll a hero.
Hero Equipment: While you level naturally, which is to say, unlocking and leveling up the heroes as you level up your shop. Keep your heroes equipped with the cheap common and uncommon items, you'll want to sell rare/epic/legendary loot for as much gold as you can for shop progression and upgrades. You likely won't have the means to constantly repair epic/legendary gear and when it breaks it becomes worthless anyway. Once you get higher up, you'll need to retire your heroes, as suggested above, and level up new ones to match your current standing. Early on you'll likely do this as normal with monks, knights, and druids, but eventually you'll get to a point where you can power level heroes. I have included information on the use of items and boosters below, but when it comes to equipment things change a bit for power leveled heroes. Once you are high enough level your lower tier equipment timers will be quite short and you'll have higher chances for rare/epic/legendary equipment that has low gold value. Don't waste too much time on trying to get all epics for your heroes as you power level them, consider it a bonus if nothing else, spam a few sets of tier 4 gear (which you will access quickly with XP drinks), if you get some epic/legendary gear that's a great bonus which will help them survive in more difficult quests. Don't make it a focus though, at higher levels you'll likely get your heroes up to tier 7 gear in a day or two anyway then just equip them as normal. Remember power leveling is about speed, not trying to have overpowered low level heroes that can't farm any worthwhile quests.
If you have no XP drinks: Craft a basic set of gear every tier and level them up normally by questing, make sure they have a yellow face when they go on a quest though. If your hero dies while leveling up, you get no exp for them and a longer timer. The risk is not worth the reward going for massive exp early on. I would suggest setting a timer on your phone so you can check quests as soon as they finish and send them out as soon as they are rested.
If you have XP drinks: Depending on how many heroes you want to level at once, use a few of these drinks on a fresh hero to get them up to their first skill quickly. One drink should get them up to level 3 which will allow you to equip Tier 2 armor. Four drinks should get them up to level 5 for your first skill. Seven drinks should get them up to level 6 and the ability to equip tier 3 armor. So if you have seven XP drinks on hand you can craft a set of tier 3 armor in advance and level them from there, I wouldn't suggest using more than seven basic XP drinks on a character, they are only really effective to boost them up to level 6.
If you have Super XP drinks: One of these will boost a character to level 6 instantly, which will allow you to save seven normal XP drinks. This will allow you to see what their first skill is and equip them with a set of tier 3 armor right away.
Once you have a stockpile of both types of drinks, I would suggest using four basic XP drinks to level a fresh hero up to level 5 to check their first skill. If they get a trash skill, retire them and repeat with another four basic XP drinks. Once you get a skill you are happy with, then switch over to super XP drinks and use a few of them to get to level 9 to equip tier 4 gear right away, then start them on quests.
Stamina drinks: Make use of these for a bit to quickly knock out quests back to back but only use them if you have the ability to check in with your heroes right after a quest using a timer. It makes no sense to use stamina drinks if you are going to be unable to check on the heroes for hours at time, you might as well let them rest normally. Also, these work best when you are trying to level up one hero and have others who are already higher level. You can send your fresh hero out with a team if they level up their timer resets and you can send them out with another team or use a stamina drink to send them out out with other fresh party members. In this way you only need to use the stamina drink on your low level hero to keep them going while your other heroes carry them into multiple runs without wasting three drinks after every quest.
XP boosters: If you are questing with two heroes you want to level up, pair them with a champion and use XP boosters on boss fights. Yuri and Lilu are the best for this as their abilities reduce timers. Make sure both your heroes have at least a yellow smile though, you don't want them to die and lose out on the exp. Save XP boosters for when you are leveling two new heroes in the same group to get the most out of this item.
Events: There are events that can boost the leveling process for your heroes, but you'll never know when they are going to hit. If an event happens to work in your favor, try to get the most out of it but honestly, I wouldn't wait for one to start before leveling up.
Raids: The gold raid is a great place to farm XP just make sure that you limit one fresh hero to a group and don't sacrifice your gold output for leveling. I would suggest using XP boosters here as well, but only if you are good on your other quest boosters and gold output.
Materials: Generally, you want to have materials stockpiled before you focus on exp questing. This way you can keep all your heroes on hand for running the quests that offer the most exp for the fresh hero regardless of what area the quest is in.
Once they get their first skill, if it is trash retire the character and start over and repeat until you get a useful skill but only do this for the first skill. Generally speaking, early on you'll want skills that boost attack in some way. After that regardless of what other skills they get don't bother retiring them, as it will take too much time and effort to keep leveling up heroes non-stop. Don't bother trying to get all the perfect rare/epic skills for your heroes until you are in the final stretch of the game.
Seeds, you will occasionally get seeds that will boost stats on your heroes, save these until the end game and use them on heroes with excellent skills.
Feathers, save all your feathers for later in the game when you’re pushing raids with your guild.
Power Booster, Compass, Loot horns, save all of these items for guild raids later on.
Repair Kits, as mentioned before save these for higher tier legendary items only.
Chests & Keys, save them all up as eventually you will get to the point when you can raid with your guild in a meaningful way. If you save all your chests and keys, right at the start of a raid you can pop a bunch of chests all at once. When you get materials from a chest they can store over your normal limit, meaning if you open a bunch of chests you will potentially have a ton of materials on hand, meaning you can continue to craft while raiding without running out of materials which is helpful. Also, you can get a number of useful questing items for raiding as well right before you start, being able to rapid fire raid runs with feathers and pushing more loot with power boosters or loot horns is a huge help.
Research Scrolls, they come quickly early on but eventually you will run short on these there are two schools of thought here: First path, only select a few items at each tier to unlock so you can progress to higher tiers faster to make more gold and level up faster, eventually go back and unlock the rest. Second path master each piece of gear before moving on to the next tier, so you unlock more research and collect more gold as you advance levels over time. Either option is fine, play the way you enjoy.
Ascension Shards, save these for later you don’t get many and you want to use them on only the best available options. If available the only suggestion for low level use I would make is on one elemental chip, a corruption chip boosts the value of items by 10,000 gold which is massive in the early game and crafting doubles on that can be a huge boon, if you have access to it.
Goals, Tasks, Fortune and Bounty.
Work through tasks as often as you can the fortune tickets you earn can net some very useful rewards. When you are in the fortune zone save up your winnings and only pick up the most expensive option, the reward will cycle as you continue to pick the expensive option which can result in a high gem payout occasionally. You get one free fortune ticket a day, make sure you use it when you take care of your piggy bank as well. When it comes to bounties check your board for discounts, components, and quests. If none of these are available pick up whatever bounties you can do eventually the board will list new options, but always contribute to the bounty board.
Racks, Bins, Storage, and the Counter.
It might seem like a good idea to keep a ton of racks to fill up with gear to sell but it’s the opposite. You’ll want a bunch of materials bins for most of the game which will allow you craft more items, as long as your racks are full more people will come in more often to buy gear. That is to say the faster you craft the faster you sell items so load up on bins. Make sure you keep enough storage space to hold your inventory as a fraction I would say 1/4 racks, 1/4 countestorage and 2/4 bins as you expand.
Make sure you are consistently leveling your racks, bins, storage, and counter, evenly until all hit level 6. This is more of a time management issue than gold issue, as eventually your timers will take days, so stay on top of your upgrades. Once your racks are level 6 you can ease off of them and focus more on your bins, storage, and counter, once those all get to level 11 you can go back and boost your racks up. This will ensure that you have excessive materials and inventory to craft, it is sad when a shop has excessively large and empty racks. Also, make sure you plan in advance for shop expansion, these events are huge milestones and you do not want to be saving up for one after the option is available. If you have saved up your gems like I suggested once you get to level 50, you can double down on an expansion with gold and 1000 gems. At level 50 things really start to pick up, and if you are able to get two rooms at the same time you can really clean up with 8 extra bins. Whatever you do with your gems, I would highly suggest setting aside 1000 for that level 50 expansion. You can do this earlier if you want, but it will have a ripple effect on your later expansions.
Yard space is just for looks, pick up some nice decorations and don’t keep a barren yard.
Indoor furnishings are worthwhile, shoppers will give you energy for having furniture, so place a few items around and don’t be afraid to make your shop look nice, you will be reward for your efforts. Some furnishings have the options to adjust the color like rugs, and you can fix up your floors and walls as well. Whatever you do for your furnishings consider your layout, a pathway is one little square wide which means if you want clean traffic in your shop you need to have pathways that are two titles wide. Make sure that you have enough room around your counter for extra people, if your counter can handle four shoppers, then someone walks in with a request, another with an item for sale, and another materials your shop will become full quickly. I suggest keeping your counter in the middle of a room, you can place storage or bins behind it but keep about half of the forward facing space open. If you keep most of your furnishings along the walls you should have plenty of room to spare. It is common practice to drop bins or decorations around the sides of the counter to trap your merchant in place, it is possible for him to wonder around or to get stuck.
Join a guild as soon as you are able to do so, there are plenty of people who are willing to invite low level active players to their guilds. You might get fed up with waiting to be recruited or give up on joining a nice guild to start your own, but I would advise against this unless it is a last resort. If you join an established guild, regardless of their level, you will have access to five maybe even ten times the shop investments and potential guild perks which will help you even more. Additionally, an established guild will likely be mostly full of members already which means more people to help you with your timers. When you start your own guild you are limited by your own investments and level, if you are level 15 and alone in your guild the odds of you getting someone who is level 30 to join is you is about zero. Once you are settled into the game, have some levels and investments built up you can branch off and start your own guild with a much higher chance for success, I would suggest waiting until you’re around level 30. This will give you a big boost early on and will allow you to recruit more players with ease in the teens and twenties. Remember when you are ready to join a guild, just get into world chat and say something like “low level but active player looking to join a guild” you are not going to get recruited by a top tier guild but you will get picked up just give it a bit of time.
As of right now there is little to be set for these new friends, except don’t use gems on them. Pick up the more expensive food for the gold and try to time it so you can feed your pet twice a day.
Once you have access to surcharge and discount options there are a bunch of different pools of advice you can draw from. My suggestion is this, for most of the game you can split your crafting, your highest tier and second highest tier. Let’s say you can craft four items and have access to tier 1, 2 and 3. You can bookmark items by click on them, so set up tier 2 weapon, tier 2 gloves, tier 3 herb, and tier 3 armor. You will need to adjust for each set but in this example make a wooden weapon like a staff, leather gloves, herbs, and iron armor. This spread requires less of each material so you can craft more often. You discount the tier 2 items to boost energy to surcharge your most expensive tier 3 items. When you master an item use the research scrolls you get to unlock a replacement and keep it going.
King time, the King will pop into your shop every so often and will disappoint you greatly when he picks up some random piece of trash on your rack to buy for his standard rate of five times the listed value. There have been times when I have hit deny just to spite him after selecting something worth next to nothing compared to other items I’m currently selling. BUT, do not give up hope because there are times when he will come in and pick just the right thing you have been waiting for. Try to keep one or two high value items in your shop for your level, if possible, a rare or epic item with both an element and spirit on it. Though he will pick up common trash from time to time, he does tend to pick up more valued items. This means if you are selling a bunch of tier three gear for around 4000-5000 gold but have one random tier one scroll that is rare, he will likely buy the rare scroll for less than what your other common items are worth. Also, keep in mind that it is not based off the price but the quality, so if you pick up an item off the market that is multiple tiers above you and is worth at ton of gold compared to what you have, if it is common he may never actually make you an offer on it. Try to keep something at your current tier or one above it, rare or epic, with element and spirit on it for the optimal sale. This item will need to be out in your shop, other customers will often try to buy it just be careful with them and don’t accidentally sell it.
If an NPC comes in to sell a bunch of gear in a stack always buy it, these items are sold at half their price, so if they are your current tier you can surcharge them for a huge profit, or if they are a lower tier you can discount them to get a bunch of energy and still break even. If an NPC comes in to sell a bunch of materials to craft with, do not buy them, earlier in the game buying materials will heavily offset your profits which means you’ll level up from the sales but won’t have as much gold to show for it.
Big example here:
If an NPC comes in to sell one single item always select the option to pay more, you will pay full price for the item, but you will get a bunch of energy which can be used to surcharge another item for profit. An NPC walks in and wants to sell a Morning Star tier 4 mace, they do so at half the base value which is about 2,500 gold the NPC wants to sell it for only 1,250 gold. Now you tap the pay full price option, you get a bunch of energy and are out only the standard price of the mace 2,500 gold (so you break even on a standard sale) then you small talk for more potential energy and buy it for another small dose of energy. You got three shots of energy you can use to now surcharge one of your current tier items for double their value. Then you go to your city menu, click on market, create offer, and put that morning star which you just paid full price for, right now for me, as of today the minimum trade value is listed at 9,480 gold. This item is listed at a higher value because it is can be used to pay off a champion request and higher level players would rather just buy one than take the time to make it. I want it to sell quickly though and for a small profit to recover my cost, so instead of selling it for more than the minimum and potentially a failed sale instead I’ll list it below market price. I list the morning star for 6,600 gold with a 10% sales tax means I will make about 6000 gold once it sells. For me right now, listing it at that price it sold in less than 1 minute. These are real numbers I’m posting in an actual sale for this example. Now I paid 2,500(ish) gold for the full base price but got a bunch of energy for it at the same time, got energy for small talk, and energy for the purchase, then I go on the market sell it in less than a minute for less than the minimum value listed, and after tax take in 6000 gold, subtract the full 2,500 gold value of the item that I paid for and I profited 3,500 gold AND got all that energy to on top of that profit which allows me to surcharge another item for even more gold. Always use the pay more option when buying single items from an NPC.
I’m not a market expert, I use the market to clear out my inventory of bulk and make profits off NPC deals. If you want to play the market to the maximum extent possible there are full guides out there for that. Just remember that market sales do not earn exp, and you don’t have to be a market expert to list items around the minimum value to make a small and quick profit. Also, note when I end up with a bunch of low grade items from random places, instead of trashing them or selling them for next to nothing in my shop I’ll place them in the market for the absolute minimum price. If you need to craft a ton of scrolls to use as a material and end up with a dozen to spare, putting them on the market for the rock bottom price means nothing and might really help out a lower level player, an option you might consider when you get to that point. With that in mind, if you are a low level player keep an eye on the market because players like me will dump excessive amounts of tier 3, 4 or 5 gear for stupid cheap to help out random lower level players. You can change the number of items going up for sale, change between gold and gems, the price, and for how long/tax, play around with the market a little bit. Consider going into the market with a small budget of 10,000 gold and see how much you can profit from that.
Other Tips & Tricks.
When I have the free time to spare, I’ll set a timer (not alarm) on my phone to line up with questing timers or crafting timers. It is easy to set up your shop and forget about it for a day, so the little reminders keep my shop running. When I’m working, I’m working but I’ll make an effort to check my shop in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Just getting onto the shop three times a day for a few minutes can keep your progression at a pretty constant pace.
Champions get more powerful the higher their rank goes, and these are not even to start. The first champions you get will have more time to build up higher ranks than those you get access to later on. There is nothing wrong with refusing a champions request, later on when you have access to many of them, you can even out their ranks by refusing one who is higher rank. Shortly after another will usually come in with another request, when your champions are evened out you can select the right champion for the right quest to get the best bonus.
Once you start helping guild members and running bounties, you’ll earn some guild coins, from the guild menu you can access the grab bag. There are three options available, blue, green and red. Recently the dev’s evened out the rewards available meaning no one bag is better than another for any reward. What they did do though is show you what you could have earned in the other bags when you make your selection, and with limited testing it seems that you’re more likely to get big ticket items the more you can open in one sitting. I would suggest saving up at least 2,100 coins before playing and simply pick the same color bag over and over. I only pick red bags and use my finger to hide the winnings from the other two bags, I only see what I actually got. No point in crying over items you didn't get after the fact.
You can view your investments and net worth from the guild menu if you click on yourself, and you can see the same values in others if you click on them. Guilds will often have a minimum to get in but that doesn't mean you're free and clear, don’t get thrown out of a guild for doing nothing. Keep an eye on other members in your guild figure out their investment rates and try to keep a similar percentage invested. You can also view other guild members shops from the same menu to get ideas on how to set up effective shops if you're not sure.
You can change the name and looks of a hero at any time, when you first hire one just select the sex you want them to be and leave the rest random. Save time as you’re likely to retire a hero multiple times before you get that first good unlocked skill, then you can go back and customize them once you know you're going to keep them for a bit.
You can sell rare and epic elements, and spirits on the market for well over the minimum values listed and these items stand alone are often worth more than gear you could put them on.
Small talk before you surcharge/discount if you get a backfire you can deny them, if you sell a backfired item you are losing energy on the sale. You can deny them, sell something else, and when someone else wants to buy the same item again you can earn your energy back. Eventually you might just say **** it and sell it or if you are selling a huge inventory quickly that’s fine but in the early game take advantage of the slightly smaller scale.
Don’t use the optimized button to equip your heroes, most of your really valuable items you’re going to want to have up for sale not equipped to be broken, it takes a couple seconds longer but keep heroes equipped with the basics.
Make sure you have the most available quests, heroes, and crafts open at all times. Once you are at your limit if you click on the respected icons it will tell you how much the next will cost and when you can pick it up. Plan a bit in advance, see how much gold you’ll need to spend to unlock all of the above and upgrade your furniture over the next ten levels and make sure you have it before you invest all your gold. It jumps quickly from needing 1 million gold to unlock everything to 10 million gold, to over 50 million gold and so on.
You can play the game horizontal or vertical, if you play the game vertical you can access everything with your thumb it makes multitasking a lot easier.
There is something to be said for taking advice or suggestion, but don’t get caught up in world chat. The methods and strategies implemented by people who are 40 levels higher than you will in most cases not apply to you in the least. Everything I have written down here is based what new players are looking at when in the ranges from level 1 to 15 and progression from there.
Bounty Combo - Take a bounty to discount items, discount items you would normally discount to get the bounty done and use the energy as you do so to surcharge items you would normally surcharge but do NOT sell them. You can leave those surcharged people waiting at your counter, as you continue to discount others to get the bounty. Once you finish that bounty, take a surcharge bounty, and hold on to it, you should have a counter full of people with your top tier items already surcharged. Once your piggy bank opens up, THEN sell all those surcharged items, you will get your piggy bank done AND likely nearly finish the surcharge bounty at the same time. If you time it right, you can discount bounty, surcharge, piggy bank, and surcharge bounty all within a very short window of time. Depending on your level and ability, you can contribute 4-6 renown a day, or an average of 25 renown a week to your guild just doing this easy combo.

This is great! But one question when is the best time to retire a hero?
I would suggest a retire rotation once you unlock a new tier of hero: retire your weakest heroes one by one as you replace them with new higher tier heroes. Level up to 5 with XP drink or questing to see what skill they get. If you get a trash skill retire them and start over, but once you have a skill that works continue to level them up. One by one, retire your older weaker heroes and replace them with higher tier stronger ones.
If you decide to save up the gold and pay for an entire new set of heroes all at once you won't have any established heroes to continue to farm materials while you level up your new ones. Also, you can run your new heroes in high level quests, on higher difficulty for more experience with a champion and an established hero to ensure the battle ends quickly; like old heroes looking out for new ones. Additionally, lock the low tier gear you craft so that each new hero you higher can wear the "hand-me-downs" as you continue to rotate your heroes through, this way your inventory won't get clogged up with multiple sets of gear for multiple heroes as they level up.
There are quite a few levels between each tier of heroes, so for most players there will be time to work through a rotation and hit hero level cap long before the next tier opens up.
If all of that made sense you can skip this overly long example...
I can't remember the star values of the lower tier heroes; this example uses made up numbers.
I have four teams of two heroes with a champion, each team consists of one Knight and one Druid. I've unlocked a new tier and want to replace my Druids with Sorcerers.
Druud [star 3000]
Drood [star 2900]
Druod [star 2800]
Drewd [star 2700]
I have enough drinks to start my new heroes in a set of tier 3 gear so I'll craft one complete set that my Sorcerers will use. You can do just fine with a set of common gear, if you're well off and don't mind the potential risk of losing it, pick up rare/epic armor as defense is more important in power leveling than attack for your weaker heroes.
Retire, Drewd my weakest Druid at 2700.
Higher a new Sorcerer "Soresir", XP drinks, skill check, put them in tier 3 gear and level them up.
Once Soresir gets to [star 2700] - as they level up equip with tier 4 gear.
Lock tier 3 gear so it doesn't go up for sale.
Retire Druod [star 2800]
Higher a new Sorcerer "Soorsir" XP drinks, skill check, put them in the locked tier 3 gear and level them up.
Once Soorsir gets near 2700, retire Drood, pick up your new Sorcerer and continue.
Repeat this process until you have retired all your Druids and have all Sorcerers, by the time all your druids are gone all of your Sorcerers should be as strong as they were or stronger allowing you to continue to quest without slowing down.
Question by: jamarie91
Hello, how many of each bin do you suggest? I messed up and had more racks than materials and always running out. So I've looked up a guide, I've been playing a while, level 43 if that matters. Appreciate any advice, thank you.
I would suggest the following, with the extra bins being whatever you have the most need for at the time. Not so much a mess up there really, you can store and exchange things so you can adjust your shop as needed. One of each rack makes a set of four, and one of each bin makes a set of four, I didn’t write them out each by name. With this set up my racks are always full of gear which keeps customers coming in non-stop, I have enough storage to handle the abundant amount of gear I can make with all the bins, and if I get excessive build up I’ll use the market. Edit: If you have a play style where you only sell a specific kind of gear, use whatever combinations of racks/bins you need for that, the ratio should still work fine. I've consistently sold weapons, armor, accessories, and tabled goods since the start. With that practice, I've made use of an even amount of materials throughout as well.
Two Rooms: 16
1 Counter / 2 Chests / 4 Racks / 8 Bins
Three Rooms: 24
1 Counter / 3 Chests / 8 Racks / 12 Bins
Four Rooms: 32
1 Counter / 5 Chests / 12 Racks / 14 Bins
Five Rooms: 40
1 Counter / 5 Chests / 16 Racks / 18 Bins
Six Rooms: 48
1 Counter / 5 Chests / 16 Racks / 26 Bins
Seven Rooms: 56
1 Counter / 5 Chests / 16 Racks / 34 Bins
I think by this point you’ll have your own system going strong.

On the subject of equipping heroes, what is your strategy for equipping sub level 20 heroes?
This information was updated into the guide.
On that note...
If you have any questions feel free to ask and I'll try to answer them.
I am not a subscribed member but after playing the game for four months I did buy the Academy.
In game my name is Nomad and I run the Town Watch
I’m a filthy casual and my guild is casual too
In the unlikely event you ever see me in game feel free to say hello
Good luck and have fun playing Shop Titans.
