Finally, we get a Kingdom Hearts game on mobile! KH Unchained X is a great version for the mobile for those that don’t like to play on consoles. Below is a brief guide to help you progress in the game based on my own experience.
Know the Basics
The mechanics of the game is pretty simple. Tap to hit a single target enemy. Swipe the screen to attack multiple enemies. Know the strength and weaknesses of each card. It goes like this:
Power > Speed > Magic > Power
Some missions will have more of each type, so adjust your medals accordingly to do the most damage possible.
Pick Up Sparkly Glitter!
The glittery sparkles are items that are used to upgrade keyblades. If you want to hold more medals and make your attacks stronger, you need as many materials as you can find. If you want to find the materials for a specific keyblade, you should check out this wonderful spreadsheet.
Each mission will have 3 objectives. Completing them unlocks prizes and items. Here are the types of objectives you will get:
- Defeat all enemies in 1 turn
- Inflict X damage with X hit
- Collect X lux
- Use special attacks
- Defeat X enemies
I have compiled the mission list so you can check what items each mission drops here.
Most are pretty easy to do, but defeating all enemies in 1 turn can be tough, especially in 100+ missions and you don’t have the right medals to do that. To defeat enemies in 1 turn, you want to do the following to increase your chances:
- Charge up your special attack bar prior to doing a mission. You can do that by doing an easy mission. Charge the special bar to 9 and start doing the mission you want.
- Use a powerful friend’s medal. This will make your life so much easier.
- Upgrade your keyblade to hold more medals.
Login Daily for Jewels
For hardcore Kingdom Hearts players, this should be a no brainer. Each consecutive login will give you more jewels. For casual players though, this is a good reminder to play it once a day.
Daily Special Quests
In order to upgrade your medals and keyblades, you are going to need to grind the special daily quests. Here are the things you need to know (for Global):
- Olympia upgrade materials
- Power dailies
- Treasure Trove upgrade materials
- Magic dailies
- Three Wishes upgrade materials
- Speed dailies
- Lady Luck upgrade materials
- 1-3 star evolution medals
- Starlight upgrade materials
- 4-5 star evolution medals
- Mythril dailies
- Munny quest (random spawn for 1/2 hour)
Know Your Evolution Materials!
For those that are upgrade freaks, you will want to know this. Instead of explaining this whole thing, this wonderful picture here will do the job:
Basically, you will constantly be grinding for them to upgrade your medals to top tier level.
You can customize your character by buying various avatars. Most of them go for 400-3000 jewels. I don’t recommend you get them over medals since these are just for looks. Try and save up for 3000 jewels to get the special deal where you are guaranteed to get a 5 star medal.
I have previously linked to the google spreadsheet on where to get various materials, but below are great farming spots that I found while doing regular missions:
- Mythril Stone: Quest 25
- Mythril Gem: Quest 24
- Mythril Crystal: Quest 41
- Cheshire Cat: Quest 63
- Merlin: Quest 158
- Fairy Godmother and Yen Sid: Quest 174
What to Prioritize
In the beginning, I recommend that you save up 3000 jewels to open the 10 medal pack that guarantees one 5 star medal. This means you will have stronger attacks. The next step will be to focus on upgrading 3 cards, 1 of each element. This way, you will have a more balanced deck. Then, you want to proceed into the long process of medal upgrades:
Raid Boss and Locations
Raid bosses will appear after you kill about 70+ heartless. Which raid boss spawns will depend on which mission you are on. Raid bosses have weak points and defeating a weak point will delay their attack for 1 turn.
The raid boss locations are from the following missions:
- Behemoth – 1-34, 131-164
- Guard armor – 35-66, 161-189
- Darkside – 67-96, 190-221
- Trick Master – 97-130, 222-250
Play With Friends
Also, if you want to play with your friends, you folks must join the same union. There are 5 unions(basically they are the severs), so make sure to let them know which one you are on so that they join the right one.
Edit: You can change your union by going to settings. This way, you don’t have to worry about not being able to play with your buddies!
