Blood & Glory: Legend Cheats And Tips
You'll have little trouble cutting down boss Kor-Nag and other brutes with this sword-slashing guide.
It won't take long to discover that the Empire in Blood & Glory: Legend is a dangerous place, what with all the gladiators out to slice and skewer the game's hero. Go into battles unprepared, and you might as well plan the character's funeral, or at the very least, expect to restart. That said, this Blood & Glory: Legend cheats and tips guide will keep you alive, even against the most frightening adversaries.

Earn Daily Rewards
Check back each day to collect the Blood & Glory: Legend Daily Reward. It may not amount to much, but you should never turn down free coins.
Note: You'll receive higher value prizes the more days you return.
Spend Skill Points Wisely
As you play Blood & Glory: Legend and level up the hero, you'll earn Skill Points that go towards his Attack, Block and Health stats. That said, try to avoid only increasing one of these attributes. In other words, don't spend them all on Health, since it'll take considerably longer to defeat the toughest enemies, as you failed to boost the Attack skill. Instead, try and balance things accordingly.
On that note, you can purchase five extra Skill Points for $0.99 at any time.
Complete Challenges For Bonus Rewards
These in-game achievements let you pick up valuable rewards, so always keep them in mind. These range from using nine Specials in any level to using an attack potion, whereupon which you stand to gain rubies and coins. On that note, you only have a limited amount of time to complete the current list of challenges.
Consider Double Rewards
Winning a fight results in rewards, like experience points (XP) coins and rubies. You can increase these rewards, but it'll cost $0.99 to do this.
Combat: Anticipating Attacks
The key to winning battles involves anticipating an enemy's attack and then avoiding it all together. During play, you'll notice one right and one left arrow on both sides of the screen. Press and hold the left arrow to dodge attacks from the left, and do the same with the right arrow when attacks come from the right. Then, when prompted, furiously slash the screen in a variety of directions to attack the opponent.
During a fight, make note of the shield icon on the bottom of the screen. Pressing and then holding this button lets you block incoming attacks, but there's a catch. Blocking successfully depletes the shield meter, and you won't be able to use it once the counter reaches zero, which is the primary reason why it's important to upgrade the Block skill.
By far the most difficult skill to learn, parrying lets you deflect an attack and strike the enemy. To do this, swipe in the opposite direction of the enemy's attack.
Evade more than 60 percent of an enemy's attacks (using either Block, Dodge or Parry), and you'll trigger a Glorious Strike, which results in critical damage on your opponent. You'll know there's a chance to activate a Glorious Strike when a directional arrow appears on screen. When that happens, first swipe in that direction, then unleash a barrage of damaging strikes.
Don't Forget About Special Attacks
Sometimes, you'll be on the ropes clinging to a sliver of health as some oversized brute threatens to club the hero into mush. This is when you should fall back on a Special Attack as a last ditch effort to turn the tide. As you'll soon notice, dodging, blocking and attacking fills the Special Attack meter on the lower right. Filling it past certain levels results in one of three Specials, listed below; just press the button to activate.
Special 1: Stun the enemy, plus damage.
Special 2: Stun the enemy, plus 2x damage.
Special 3: Stun the enemy, plus 3x damage.
Amulets Contain Magic Power
Basically, you can equip up to three amulets before heading into battle. There are 10 different kinds, and they all do something different. Keep in mind that although the developers give you one slot for free, the other two amulet slots cost 30 rubies each.
Note: Amulets can be upgraded up to three times, and you'll unlock the majority of amulets by reaching different levels.
Types of amulets include...
Potion Upgrade: Attack and block potion timer now 10 seconds.
XP Bonus: XP earnings plus 10 percent.
Special Damage: Special attack damage plus 10 percent.
Glorious Strike: Glorious Strike stun of 3.5 seconds.
Bleed: Each successful attack makes the enemy bleed five damage per second.
Similar to amulets, you can bring up to three potions into a fight, but there are only three to choose from.
Health: Restores health.
Attack: Double damage.
Block: Halves stamina damage.
Keep An Eye Out For The Caravan
Play Blood & Glory: Legend long enough, and the caravan will appear on the world map. Why is this important? Because it'll give you a free item. A potion, for instance.
Always Seek To Upgrade Equipment
Blood & Glory: Legend comes with a packed Store filled with different weapons, shields and pieces of armor. Enemies only grow more difficult to beat the further you progress. That is, unless you spend coins and rubies to equip the hero with the finest gear. Just look for green and red arrows next to desired items. Green means that particular item is stronger than what's currently equipped, while red signals that it's weaker.
Blood & Glory Miscellaneous Tips
Enemies also have special attacks, designated by color. Orange means it cannot be blocked, while white means it cannot be dodged. React accordingly.
You can revive after losing a fight, but it costs two rubies.
There are three Super Combos in the game. Check the Options menu to find out how to execute them.
Glu Mobile will let you know, before a battle, if an enemy has superior gear. From there, you can upgrade before battling.
