If you've been playing Forged Fantasy, the new traditional fantasy action game from Hothead Games, you'll know how important it is to have a formidable and capable team of characters to push through stages with.

There's spellcasters, blokes wielding big swords, a lad with a crossbow, and all manner of unusual and interesting monsters you can use to break through all of the stages in the game. But those characters are going to be useless unless you use the advice here to make each of those the best they can be.

Better skills, more damage, faster healing, less cooldowns, all of the good stuff that makes an essential part of an RPG team can be achieved with the advice we've amassed right here, and if you've just started playing Forged Fantasy then these are the tips that will get you through the campaign and fast.

Forged Fantasy

What's your team level?

Having individually powerful heroes is of course very important in Forged Fantasy if you're going to mow through all of those levels from the campaign standing in your way, but you need more than that. You need your overall Team Level to be higher.

Your Team Level is pretty precious, because it doesn't just affect your progression or anything like that, it actually prevents your individual heroes from becoming too much more powerful than one another.

Essentially, if your Team Level is 10, then your max level for any individual character is level 10. As simple as that. It's not powerful enough, is it? Damn right it's not.

Team Level is hard to increase by itself, but you can of course ensure all of your individual characters are fully levelled up to their new maximum each time you increase your Team Level. So if you see your Team Level increase, you know it's time to go through your roster and make sure your primary heroes are the best they can be.
