Basics of battle

Skylanders Ring of Heroes

In battle you can have up to three Skylanders on your frontlines, taking on the enemy. For obvious reasons, your rarest, and usually strongest, Skylanders should be in your team so they can take on the enemy. Though, elemental affinities might impact that decision.

In addition to your main team members, you'll be able to pick two spectators, and a companion villain to join you. Oddly, the villain will actually help out, with each villain offering a different team buff. The safest and most useful is usually a heal ability from the Broccoli Guy.

Before entering into battle you will at least get to see what enemies you'll be going up against, allowing you to adequately prepare for the battle ahead. That's nice.

Each of your three attacking Skylanders has two abilities they can use, though they cost gems to enable. At the bottom of the screen, just under the abilities, you'll see how many gems you have an how long it takes to recharge.

You can, of course, just whack out the strongest possible abilities, but that's not always the best idea. All things in moderation, until the final enemies rears its head.

Each ability has how many gems it costs to use at the bottom of it's portrait. Take note of that before whacking out your abilities so you don't get stuck low on gems to attack.
