Things You Should Know When Starting This Game!

  1. This game requires patience. You will need time to gather shards for your units (Warriors) or purchase them with ingame currency (Ingots).
  2. There are a lot of activities that you can join and earn Legion Contribution. Be present for the main activities.
  3. Spend your ingame currency prudently. You will receive a large amount of ingame currency (Ingots) early in the game, but spend them wisely because you will need a lot more of them to purchase seals for your military ranks and other materials for upgrades.
  4. Learn the rules of your legion. Each server and legion has its own rules set by the leader, assistant leader & elders. Rules come into place when bidding for seals and other upgrade materials, inter-server cease fights and other issues.
  5. Look for Gift Codes. Those would be available online.
  6. As more players quit the game starting from the first day, there will be lesser players and you might move from legion to legion. Servers will also combine after a period of time.

Dynasty Heroes: Legend of Samkok - Huarong Road

Huarong Road

  • It happens every 10am, 2pm, 4pm, 10pm. Each event consist of 2 races to bid on.
  • You can bid on runners with Support Coupons which you are given when you complete the Daily Quests.
  • The Support Coupon can be used to exchange for Crystals later on when the Crystal Shop releases.

Legion Boss 

  • It happens every 12pm & 7pm. There are 4 boss rotations. Sima Yi, Sun Ce, Zhou Zhao Yun, Zuo Ci.
  • The boss fight will last a total of 10 mins, you have 3 chances to Assault & 3 changes to Plunder other players.
  • My recommendation would be to start your Assault when the countdown is at 5 mins remaining.
  • At 5 minutes remaining, Assault, Plunder, Assault, Plunder, Plunder, then Assault. This will help retain the most points for your self & Legion.

Legion Quiz

  • The quiz is different for each Legion but will be the same for each Legion member.
  • There are a total of 10 questions. You will receive 200 Legion Contribution for each right answer, 100 for each wrong. Nothing for missed answers.
  • There are quiz answers online which you might be able to search for, though they might be in Chinese. It’s best to share the correct answer in the Legion chat if possible.

Legion Trial

  • For the trial, each Legion member is able to select and fight only 3 opponents. You will receive different Legion Contributions based on the opponents you selected. It will be shown when you click on them.
  • The number of opponents varies based on the size of your Legion. Start early or you might run out of slot as each opponents can only be fought three times.

Three Kingdom

  • The activity consist of three rounds. Each area & boss is shared.
  • Round 1 – 4 Boss regions are available for assault with 2 areas each.
  • Round 2 – Polling or selection for the Boss your Legion wants to fight. Selection includes Lu Bu, Zhou Yu, Cao Cao, Zhuge Liang.
  • Round 3 – Fighting the boss. Assault has a 30 seconds cooldown, Intercept also has a 30 seconds cooldown. Intercept increases your opponent’s Assault cooldown by 30 seconds.
  • It’s important for the Legion to concentrate on specific areas first in order to gain a high percentage with better rewards for Round 1. For Round 2, if there are not many Legions fighting the same boss, do not Intercept as you will not be able to kill the boss.

Faction Championship

  • You will need to register for this event to take part. You will be automatically assigned to one of the country based on the units you used.
  • There’s not much you need to do for this event but you can place free bets on who is going to win the fights.
  • There would be 3 rounds of betting, if you bet correctly, you will receive 200 Ingots per round, totaling 600 Ingots.

Legion War

  • In this activity, your Legion will either assault an new area (may be with other Legions). Assault an area preoccupied by another Legion. Or defend your area from another Legion.
  • Listen to the instructions from your Legion leader.
  • A lot of players do not know how to gain the rewards from playing this activity. To do that, move from one square to another when the green arrow indicates after the countdown. When you move to a square with something for you to assault, a list on the right side will appear. Click on the target on the list to assault. You can assault every 5 seconds. You can earn up to 5 reward boxes.

7 Day Event

Dynasty Heroes: Legend of Samkok - 7 Day Event
  • A new server will be presented to you when to first open the game, which you will see that the status is green, next to the server name, which you can still receive this 7 Day Event.
  • The event will start once you enter the server and there is a countdown at the bottom of the event page where it shows when your event ends.
  • You will be given free silvers, ingots, etc, when you reach the required benchmark.

There are things that can be purchased with Ingots, but here’s my recommendation:

  • Day 1 – Blue Gear (400 Ingots) – Not recommended as you will receive it soon enough
  • Day 2 – Gold Treasure (Works) from Legendary Military Works Chest (1000 Ingots) – I’d recommend to purchase since it can give you a boost in the beginning. You will only unlock the Gold Treasures for purchase a while later, which you can exchange Soul of Treasure for them.
  • Day 3 – Advanced Refine Stone (1000 Ingots) – Optional but for me i’d purchase them. You can use them to level up your Gear in the short term as you level up. You can farm the Refine Stones from the Daily Instance.
  • Day 4 – Legendary Artifact Chest + 500 Artifact Advance Stone + 10000 Exploit (1000 Ingots) – I’d recommend to purchase. You can select an weapon for the Warrior of your choice. The additional items are for upgrading the weapon and for the Weapon Shop.
  • Day 5 – 5 Legendary Universal Artifacts (1250 Ingots) – I’d recommend to purchase. They normally sell for 500 Ingots or 5000 Exploit.
  • Day 6 – Gold Treasure (Tally) from Legendary Military Tally Works Chest (1000 Ingots) – I’d recommend to purchase since it can give you a boost in the beginning. You will only unlock the Gold Treasures for purchase a while later, which you can exchange Soul of Treasure for them.
  • Day 7 – Guan Yu Insignia (1500 Ingots) – I’d recommend to purchase since you can only get them via auction (3000 Ingots) or the Crystal Shop (64 Crystals) or boxes (from events).

  • There are no tier lists as each unit has its own specific use. You can use them in any combination that you require.
