Shop Heroes - Farming Guide

This guide will help increase the returns of Artifacts from Raids and Quests, plus identify where and how to farm keys, loot bags and other useful items.

Quests return a few things, hero xp, artifacts in the form of item materials such as Shiny gems. Then there is a roll on special loot. These can be coins up to keys (the big prize we want). A the moment there is no way to influence the special loot returned, so this guide will help maximise the efficiency of the quests and the materials and xp returned.

For farming there are a couple of important pointers:

  • You MUST quest with the correct number of heroes i.e. 6 for keys.
  • Increase the Artifact level as much as possible.
  • There are theories that if you are farming keys or chest then place items you already own in a premium auction house slot. Apparently this increases your chance. However this is unfounded.
  • (chests are only a drop option if you have <3 of that type in your inventory. (with tradehouse offer slot not counting as inventory))
  • An artifact is the main quest reward - such as Shiny Gem for City Sewers

Quests

Send your heroes on the following quests to ensure the quality of loot you want to target.

  • Wooden Chest & Key - City Sewers or Haunted Forest
