    Quick Guide to Earning Credits and How to Spend Them Wisely

    This is a quick guide to earning credits in Galaxy Legend for generally low-vip players to help you enjoy this game better. Disclaimer: There is no overnight success to this and requires dedication and patience, and most of all, restraint to ensure these hard-earned credits are not drained quickly through impulsive clickings.

    Now, of all the games I have played, I find Galaxy Legend deeply engaging with multiple contents to keep you interested long enough to always want to improve your own fleets, and inevitably, credits have to be used to achieve that. Fortunately, T4Fun has made available a few channels for casual players to gain credits and here I will share briefly each of them.

    Clearing each level within each dimension campaign with 3 stars
    The tutorial system would have guided you through the battle campaigns and you would have noticed that clearing a full level with 3 stars will reward you with some credits - the reward increases steadily as you progress from one dimension to the next. Hence, always remember to head back to previous levels to achieve those 3 stars rating which was previously too difficult for your fleet.

    Achievements
    Achievements are a great way to earn small amount of credits, with more challenging achievements giving better payout so do check out the descriptions of the achievements to see what is needed. Most of these achievements are met as your level up and progress along the game but hard ones like New Guest (get 5x lvl10 R-6 galactonite stones) requires patience and planning to achieve.

    I was searching for a FB link where a player posted a guide on making the New Guest achievement by lvling to lvl10 and decomposing 5 R-6 Pri-energy sequentially to gain the 10k credit but the link is gone. So if you are reading this, please come forward!

    Gaining Arena ranks
    Advancing in the ranks in the arena rewards players with a one-time credit reward whenever you reach a new highest rank. (Under construction and will add more info later)

    Update 2016-07-29 Arena Winning Streak and Weekly Arena Rewards are no longer valid, Arena rewards have changed to a daily reward based on the position before the server day restarts

    Arena Winning Streak
    Winning streak of 5 gives you 5 credits, and winning streak of 9 gives you 10 credits.

    Weekly Arena Rewards
    There is a weekly arena event where credits are given out based on your ranking.
    Grand Prize: 5000
    2nd to 10th Place: 1000
    50th Place: 1000
    100th Place: 1000
    150th Place: 800
    200th: 800


    New servers have slightly different rewards for arena and you'd find that the event will stop for couple of weeks after the 1st 2 weeks of the server but return and stick to the above mentioned reward system.

    EDIT: From what I understand there are no longer arena rewards for newer servers.
    EDIT 2: All servers get the same arena daily battle rewards

    Month Card
    Every player gets to have 80 credits for free daily from this feature and if you decide to spend some real cash on the bronze and silver cards you can get more value out of your money spent. (Under construction and will add more info later)

    EDIT: Newer servers receive 20 credits free daily instead of 80 credits.

    Rush, Debris, Galaxy Slots, Mining and Cosmic Expedition
    Grouped this few together because you can find find credits randomly through these channels.

    Login Rewards, Level Rewards
    You'd find these credit rewards in the daily login rewards as well as when you hit certain levels

    UNDER CONSTRUCTION
    FB groups credits rewards
    Forum contest rewards
    Galaxy Legend Official FB page contests
    Opening Fund
    Interstellar foundation

    How to Spend Your Credits Wisely

    Firstly, I want to give credits to Nopo for calculating for us how much a player can save over time. Refer to his posts in this thread to see how much a player can save. That said, these calculation would be valid for the main bulk of players while newer servers would have lesser due to the removal of arena competition as well as reduced daily free credits from the month card window.

    After referring to Nopo's post, what this means for casual players is, your resources would be limited but with patience over time, you would be able to save up a considerable amount of credits (albeit amidst rising costs). BUT, don't expect to be able to purchase new features or newer/stronger commander due to their high costs from high demand unless you intend to save up for a long period of time just to be able to afford these.

    A rough cost estimates from current prices of commanders:
    1) From Interstellar Treasure hunt - Worst Case 1 DNA usually goes for 30-35k credits. Hence 60-70k to get the ship
    2) Galactic Portal aka chest event - Worst Case 1 DNA goes for 30-40k so expect to spend up to 80k for the ship
    3) Empires Treasure aka bar event - Usually after a commander has been featured in a galactic portal, he will be released in empires treasure next. This is where the costs vary based on the demand of the Commander. Usually newer commanders would still go for high prices like 35k per dna for worst case. Middle rangle could go for 10-20k each. (Jackie, Frost, Brom, etc) Currently the cheaper ones like Violette are going for below 10k per DNA.
    4) Mining Events/Side task Carnival event - With the amount of free currency given through side task and daily task, expect to pay up to 8k-10k to supplement for a good commander like Annica, Cabal (newly added), Zach, Akhen.
    5) Quarks - Well quarks can be gotten free with cubits so I don't really advice spending credits on them unless u really want to.

    A rough cost estimate for items:
    1) TS-3 Modules - in bar events/collecting of ts3 module chips/black market - seems to be going at a rate of 30-32k per module
    2) Dual R6 - 35k credits to top on mining events or roughly 35k to get 35 chroma prisms R6
    I'll include more costs estimation of other items upon request in this thread.

    With all these estimates, it is safe to say that things are not cheap and you have ti save up and be patient about it. There are always events that Tap would organise that would tempt you to spend some of your credits and it is easy to get lost in them and before you know it, your hard earned credits are gone in flash without getting something of real worth.

    One good example is to spend in bar or chest events without having the required amount of credits to purchase the worst case. If you want to depend on good luck, more often than not you would find all your credits squandered and not being abt to hit 100% on that bar or get the 18th chest on the chest event simply because you don;t have enough. Save yourself the heartache by making sure you have saved enough to get at least 1 worst case DNA before committing to the event.

    In conclusion, always plan in mind what your aim to save for and stick to it unless you make an informed decision to change it - for example release of new features or commander which you could spend on instead provided it is a realistic target.

    It is tempting to spend on small stuff like instant revive or extra fuels in pandora, extra cubits in citadel, or extra resources in diplomacy centre and it is these little things that add up over time and you would find your credits easily depleted that way.

    from my point of view, if need to get a r6 pri energy to lvl 10 and decompose it, its a waste as it will lose more gala energy. not worth it

    If I am not wrong, u'd get back 100% of gala energy so none will be wasted.

    This guide is more of a non-vip to low vip way of getting credits so will refrain from talking abt purchasing credits, with the exception of the month card.

    But this is a great idea and I will write a separate guide on that. Thanks!

    Nice start. I was looking for a thread on similar lines. More specifically on the spending part as new players are not aware about the best events and their success ratio.

    Also for getting best buck for your real money, i have created a small guide on a different forum (perhaps old one). Let me know if guys are interested. I will share the link here. You can use that to add points to your guide so that all info is available in one place.

    Please see http://galaxylegend.tap4fun.com/foru...ull=1#post4876 for updated calculation for missed rewards and gifts.

    From Thatzme's first post, if you can achieve some of the non-random ways of earning credits, one can save 60000 credits to get 2 DNA chips under the worse case scenario for all but the latest commanders. Just need to be patient, save and don't spend unless absolutely sure.

    No luck involved below. Just plan, execute and save.


    20550 credits after 3 months (of 30 days): Non-VIP


    Aiming for Arena 50 or 100 position should be achievable for a non-VIP as the spenders will most probably be gunning for the top 10 positions, as that will be main source of credits.

    After 6 months, a non-VIP should be able to save 41100 credits (2 x 20550 credits). This allows for getting pretty reasonable commanders.

    After 9 months, a non-VIP should be able to save 61650 credits (3 x 20550 credits).

    After 12 months, should be able to get at least 2 pretty good reasonable commanders.

    Credits Calculation Source
    7200 80 x 90 days Daily credit from Month Card
    12000 1000 x 4 weeks x 3 months Arena 1000 credit reward
    1350 15 x 90 days Arena 9 win streak reward


    38550 credits after 3 months (of 30 days): Low VIP, Bronze Month card


    For a low VIP with a Bronze Month Card, about 4.5 month of savings, should also be able to reach 60000 credits.

    After 12 months, should be able to get at least 3 or 4 pretty good reasonable commanders.

    Credits Calculation Source
    18000 6000 x 3 months Bronze Month Card
    7200 80 x 90 days Daily credit from Month Card
    12000 1000 x 4 weeks x 3 months Arena 1000 credit reward
    1350 15 x 90 days Arena 9 win streak reward


    60300 credits after 3 months (of 30 days): Low VIP, Silver Month card


    A Low VIP with a Silver Month Card, after 3 months will be able to get another good commander.

    After 12 months, should be able to get at least 4 pretty good reasonable commanders.

    39750 13250 x 3 months Silver Month Card
    7200 80 x 90 days Daily credit from Month Card
    12000 1000 x 4 weeks x 3 months Arena 1000 credit reward
    1350 15 x 90 days Arena 9 win streak reward

    For discussion of what is a reasonable commander to get? Well, that will be off topic for this thread, so a new discussion should be started for it instead.
