For new players of The Horus Heresy: Legions, this is a quick and simple guide to give advice for beginners with card collecting.
Methodes of Collecting
cards can be collect via 8 methodes:
- free chests
- daily mission
- dailly challenge
- store chests
- store bought single cards
- event chests
- achievment chest
- mentorschip chest
and cards come in differing raretys:
Free, mission and challenge chests
the most comman chests you will recieve are free chest wich can be collected every 6 hours. these will give 2 cards and some times a card can be replaced by either a event ticket or exp boost, they also give between 3 to 15 gold.
mission chest are earened by winning 5 ranked or friendly games (event does not count) these wil give 4 random cards and some gold between 5 to 20 with the occasional event ticket.
challenge chests are chest earend through specific challenges these can be set to a specific faction that you want to collect. they will give 5 cards with three of these being of the selected faction.
example challenge, to set your chosen faction click on the i symbol.
Campaign and event
in campaign you play through a set of 6 battles 3 times with a predeterment faction and you will be given a deck to use. winning the six battles will unlock the next warlord to play through it again but you will also recieve a crate wich will hold the 1st used warlord and 4 other cards of that faction. beating it the 2nd and 3rd time will give crates with 5 cards of that faction. once thats beaten there will be a challange level that will give you a card back decoration should you beat it.
making this a good way to start building a deck of the faction that currently has a campaign going.event
to play in the event you will need event tickets. these can be recieved via chests. in event you recieve a warlord and build a deck around, you then have three lives if you lose a match you lose a live if you win a match you gain a point. earning points will upgrade the chest that you will recive you can gain a max of 12 point.
event can be entered by spending 1 or 10 tickets while using 10 will give a greator reward unles you are confident you can gain 12 victories it’s recomended to only use 1 ticket.
if your in a lodge (clan/guild) your lodge can earn points for extra chests at the end of the event with every win gaining your lodge 10 points.
in the store are 3 methodes to get cards.
the first is to buy a expansion crate these cost 100 gold and will earn you 5 cards. i would recomend to take one crate and keep buying it till you have all its cards. that way you will have a decent deck of wich ever factions are in that chest.
the second method is to buy faction chests these are chest that hold 1 specified faction and rotated in and out of the store. i would recommend only buying them if you have 1 or 2 decks your happy with and want 1 specific faction or a new released faction. since these cost 200 gold and give 5 cards with only 3 being of that faction.
the third method is to buy single cards with gems. gems are recieved if you get duplicate cards, and can be traded for specific cards. the store will have 1 gauranteed legendery. i would recomand to try and keep 100 gems, that way you can buy 1 rare card or 5 commons should you see cards that you want in your deck. there is a regular store and a veteran store (subscriber store) the veteran store will 9/10 times show the faction that will move into the regular store the next day.
