Forged Fantasy has a lot of characters to earn. If you don't believe us, then you should take a good long look at our full list of every hero in the game. Did you like that? That's smart link placement and an excellent segue, frankly.

Right, back to business. There's lots of heroes in the game, and although the game will happily hand you a few to begin, that's not enough to keep you satisfied, is it? No, you need a team of five to fill up your squad, and many more just for the sake of completion, right? Hell yes you do, and that's why I'm here to help.

I understand the need for more. More characters, more powerful characters, and the biggest and baddest roster of fighters seen in any fantasy game. You'll need fragments, hero chests, and much more. But this is a great place to start, and using the tips here you'll quickly have a squad of five heroes, and soon many more than that.

Read on for all of the details you need to get more heroes for your money in Forged Fantasy.

Hero chests

Yes yes, I know this is the obvious one but hear me out - it's important all the same. Hero chests are the fastest and easiest way to get new heroes, thanks to the fact that, well, it's a guaranteed hero.

Yep, this is not a case of having to buy multiple chests in the vain hope that you might get lucky and earn yourself the few hero fragments you need to unlock your latest champion. Gosh, no, that's much too long and far too frustrating of an experience.

Hero chests cost 300 of the premium gem currency, which can seem quite steep, but if you're an early adopter like we are (and playing this game at or near launch, like we are) you'll be given more than enough gems through quests, achievements, and the early adopter bonus to open yourself a chest instantly. Well, pretty early on, anyway.

This will contain a completely random hero, and if you're lucky, a powerful one that takes a bunch of fragments to unlock, therefore saving you a lot of time. We got Tidebreak, a hero that usually requires a bunch of fragment farming to earn. Let us know if you get lucky like we did in the comments below!
