Launched on 22 of January, Langrisser Mobile takes all of the much-loved elements from the famous JRPG franchise and bundles them up into a pocket-sized fantasy world. There are new faces and old ones to meet; fresh battles and classic ones to fight. But if you’re brand new to Langrisser, or just want a quick start on the mobile version, these tips will come in handy.
Quick beginner tips for Langrisser Mobile

Unit strengths and weaknesses
If you’ve played a lot of tactical RPGs before, you’ll probably be familiar with the rock-paper-scissor strengths and weaknesses of different unit types. Langrisser Mobile sticks with the tried and true formula: cavalry have an advantage over infantry, while infantry are stronger against lance soldiers, and lance soldiers are best against cavalry. Archers sit outside this circle, and are most effective pummeling demons with arrows from a distance.
When you’re choosing which units to take into battle – each hero in your team has 10 soldiers by their side – make sure you have a good mix of types. Horses are cool, but you don’t want to keep getting wiped out every time you’re confronted by a band of infantry soldiers, just because you picked all cavalry.
Levelling up quickly
There’s no secret to levelling up in Langrisser Mobile – it’s just about gaining as much experience as possible. Of course, there are certain tasks which are better at boosting your EXP than others, so be strategic with how you spend your grind time. Completing the daily task is one of the simplest ways to climb up the character levels. Finding and gulping down some EXP potions are another. You’ll also gain plenty of experience points by playing Time Rifts – these are battles from previous Langrisser games, re-imagined for the mobile. They’re a nice way to get clued up about early storylines you might’ve missed, learn about other characters from the Langrisser world, and rake in the EXP.
Using class transfer
True to the original games, Langrisser Mobile features a range of class trees for each hero. These determine what skills and soldiers a hero can use in battle. And, just as unit types have certain strengths and weaknesses, so do hero class types. That means the blend of classes in your team of heroes is critically important if you want to win. A complementary group of hero types will make you tougher overall, so choose wisely.
There are over 80 heroes in the game, and each one is capable of following different paths. With the right materials and at the right level, you can change a hero’s class. Class transfers mean you can tailor your heroes to suit your team’s make-up, to get the balance just right without having to abandon your favourite character because they’re up a tree you don’t like.
Stocking up on resources
There are plenty of resources you’ll need to gather to make your heroes the best warriors this side of El Sallia. For those coveted trinity crystals and the materials for class transfers, Time Rift is your best bet. For lots of coins, head to the Secret Realm for a bout of Stolen Treasure. It’s you versus some thieving goblins. They’re spritely, so you’ll have to be quick to catch them. EXP potions can also be sourced in Secret Realm – visit Anjelica’s Special Training School for these. And to farm high quality equipment for your heroes, Goddess Trial is a good choice (but those dragons aren’t to be underestimated).
