Dragon Ball Legends just got a bunch more new Events to sink your teeth into, and in true Pocket Gamer guide style, we're here to walk you through why it's so useful and what you can get out of it.
Whether you're looking to grab more money, experience or even brand new characters, you will need to be dipping into events in order to become stronger than ever.
So read on for everything that you need to know about the events in Dragon Ball Legends, and why you should be jumping in immediately.
Why Event mode?
So why focus on event mode, when there's already a long story for us to plough through, right? Well the primary story is good and original, but in Event mode they're rolling out events that take us through the original story of Dragon Ball Z, one villain at a time.
Not to mention, there's loads of cash rewards, experience and equippable items to be earned in event mode that you simply can't get anywhere else.
On top of all that, events won't stick around forever like the primary story. All of those rewards will be gone for good soon, so grab them while you can!
When you're outmatched in terms of raw power - which will happen regularly in event mode, if my experience is anything to go by - the elements of your characters will become more important than ever.
While deciding which characters to send into event battle, you'll be able to see the elemental circle in the top right corner, with the five colour and what they're strong or weak against.
If you pick advantageous elements you'll take less damage and dish out more. Zero downsides, so make sure the elements are in your favour when possible.
Even if you've done all of the event missions you need, you can replay older missions to clear out those extra challenges.
You'll likely need to use specific characters, or ensure you don't take any damage, depending on what the challenges are of course, but you stand to earn plenty of chrono crystals and materials for upgrading your team.
Each mission has at least seven challenges, and you'll get special rewards for clearing all of the challenges in each mission.
The old grind
If you need experience or cash fast, then it's tempting to waste your energy going to older missions, but in event mode we now have EXP and Zeni events.
Against Saibamen, you'll be able to dish out damage once again and get concentrated doses of experience and cash drop into your lap.
This makes the grind for these two resources way easier, and these events should be abused as necessary, just like the rest.
Once you finally clear out the Raditz, Nappa, or any future events, the most likely reward you'll get at the end is an Extreme version of that character.
These are great if you haven't already been able to pull them in a summon, and if you have them already, then pushing them closer to a limit break is also very helpful indeed.
Long story short, the only thing you lose by attempting to clear out event mode is energy, and that'll come back in the end anyway. Well worth it.
