This is walkthrough guide with strategy, help, hints, tips and tricks for the iOS and Android game Battleheart Legacy. This is a work in progress, so please bear with me. Feel free to ask for help or offer your own advice in the comments section.

Battleheart Legacy is a reimagining of the original Battleheart. It is more of an action RPG. You get to choose from 12 different classes. Scroll down for information on unlocking all 12 classes, as well as their skills trees.

See all our Battleheart Legacy guides in one handy place.

See our step-by-step walkthrough for quests by levels and locations.

**Note: If you’ve completed the game and need to make room on your device without losing all your character save slots, use iFunbox and back up the .plist file in the Preferences folder. Then you can move it back in after you re-install the game. Works like a charm! **

Starting Guide:

Make sure to follow the in-game tutorial if you haven’t played before. But in case you need a refresher, here are some beginner’s tips:

ΓÇó Tap the ground to move.
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé Tap a target that you want to attack, then move within combat range and you’ll automatically start attacking.
ΓÇó The buttons at the bottom of your screen are special skills. Use them when you get close to your target.
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé Don’t forget about potions if you’re low on health!
ΓÇó Check out these two tips from the game:



Tips & Tricks:

Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé If you learn a new skill, make sure you have the right weapon to use it! You usually can’t change skills in battle, so if you have the wrong skills equipped for your weapon, you’re stuck with them until you go back to safety.
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé Consider getting the Bard’s first skill, Charm, no matter what class you are. It takes some of the attention off you by briefly turning an enemy to your side.
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé Be careful about how you interact with NPCs in the game. What you say to them can affect how they react and whether they’ll work with you or against you. Keep in mind that you can see what each answer you give would look like. Then tap the same response again to confirm that’s your choice.
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé Potions replenish after you leave an area (just like your health does), so don’t be afraid to use them in a pinch!
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé If you’re really having a hard time, you can change the difficulty level under Settings so you have unlimited potions!
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé There is a penalty for dying — you lose some gold. So if you’re strapped for cash, be extra careful!
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé WARNING: If you turn on Crazy Mode, you’ll be able to kill all NPCs, potentially killing your teachers and missing out on skill trees.
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé The game only saves when you’re on the world map. So if something goes wrong in a dungeon, you can close the app before you die to keep it from saving. Same thing if you take a skill you decide you don’t want. Don’t go to the world map until you’re sure about your changes. At the same time, make sure you go to the map if you complete a quest or mission, or the game won’t save it. If you complete a dungeon or learn a skill and you’re sure you want to keep it, don’t close the game until you go back to the world map, or it’ll be like it never happened.
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé Battleheart Legacy lets you duplicate your save file so you don’t have to start from scratch every time you want to experiment with skills. Take advantage of it! You can also use this to try out different options in the story without risking anything.

Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé Did you know that in the character stats screen, you can scroll down to see more stats? Don’t forget to do this in your items/skills menus, as well as at the shopkeeper/smithy.


Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé I found Rogue to be one of the easier classes to start off with. They’re quite powerful in the beginning compared to some other classes. So give that a try if you’re having trouble with other classes. Later on, you can add some Ranger skills that work nicely with them, and some Ninja skills as well.
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé If you’re willing to deal with their weak start, Wizards become very powerful later in the game, especially if you add some Witch and Necromancer skills to the mix. Magic users are great for crowd control in later levels because of their AoE (Area of Effect) skills. But you may have to take the game a bit slow in the beginning, because their Lightning skill is pretty weak. Once you get their second skill, Staff Wielder, it should get a little bit easier.
ΓÇó Early on in the game, the Gloomy Path in Gobwood is great for earning some XP, gold and the treasure chest at the end always has an item in it. You can also keep replaying it while trying to level up.


Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé There’s a huge quest for the Shards you can get at the castle. Make sure to pick it up from the castle’s steward. He’ll point out the locations for the three shards on the map (this was bugged, but is fixed in the new update).
ΓÇó If you learn every skill in the game and then start New Game+, you start back at level 1 with no stats, but you keep all your skills!
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé If you’re playing as an AoE class such as any of the magic users, I highly suggest getting a Blood-soaked Sash with 3% Life Leech (or the Life Leech skill) so all the crazy damage you’re doing to the large mobs will help replenish your health. It makes a huge difference.


ΓÇó If you take the quest from the Capital to rob the caravan, the Ambush Point, Merchant Caravan will show up on your map. If you find the enemies too strong here, you can run back a bit and let the NPC take the damage. Then you can assist with ranged attacks.


Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé When in the city capital, make sure to head north and pick up a quest from this student. She says she’ll meet you at the Ritual Site in St. Argus Crypt. When you meet her there, you need to lead her through while keeping her alive. If she dies, you have to force close the game or you’ll lose the quest. If you leave and save the game after she dies, she won’t be there when you go back.


ΓÇó Once you can easily beat the Frost Wyrm, continue playing that area over for easy XP and leveling. After that, the Ominous Pasture is a quick boss to kill, giving a decent amount of XP.
Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé If you complete the level 6 area called Ruins at the Ransacked Village, you’ll get access to level 7 Ominous Pasture, where you battle the boss called the Boar Rider! He throws bombs, charges at you, refuses to be affected by paralysis, and at one point summons some minions. But it’s a fun battle!



Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé When you get to level 8, check out the Mage Academy/Tower to pick up two quests, including one to find the the Necromancer’s Keep with the Forbidden Library. There’s a merchant selling useful trinkets, and it’s how you start your journey to meeting the Necromancer trainer.

    Cartel? Kill or join?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I’m not 100% sure, but I don’t think it makes much of a difference at this point. I chose to kill him and take Robin Hood’s side.

      1. John

        Thanks! Do you have to be a certain level for battle mage quest from royal guard? I am level 7 and when i hit the green check i can get the quest…

        1. John

          I meant cannot get the quest.

        2. John


        3. AppUnwrapper

          Hmm that’s weird, because the area you meet the Battlemage in is level 7. I don’t remover when I picked up the quest, but it was pretty early on, when I first went to the Capital. What is he telling you? You have to tell him you don’t have any bounties yet, that you want one.

          1. John

            Ok good now thanks!

            1. AppUnwrapper

              Just letting you know…I chose to kill Robin Hood in my second game, and I didn’t notice any new quests from it. I don’t think either choice matters at this time.

  2. pjames

    the battlemage died after i defeat the mobs and never seen him again please help

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I think you’re out of luck. Might have to start a new character if you want his skills. :(. In the future, though, if something like that happens, kill the app. The game only saves when you’re on the world map, so it would be like that never happened and you can do it over.

    Hi !
    “If you learn every skill in the game and then start New Game+, you start back at level 1 with no stats, but you keep all your skills!”

    What does it mean ? We have to learn every skills with one character or it can be with multiple ?
    And by New Game+ you mean a new game or a new button appear when you unlock all skills ?

    Thx for information, your posts are very helpful 🙂

    1. AppUnwrapper

      You don’t *have* to learn all the skills with one character. But you can. And if that character has beaten the final boss, that game save will have the option to start a New Game+, where you’re back to level 1, starting a new game but you keep all the skills you picked up. So, ideally, you’d wait until you have all the skills. But this game is so great with the duplicating, that you could just create a duplicate and then have the second one as NG+, while still keeping the original. 🙂

      1. Pier2a

        Thank you for the explanation 😀

        I’m gonna rush the bard’s skill “Generalist” then 🙂

  4. Ninja23221

    I accidentally killed the shop keeper in crazy mode in the better shop and now I’m totally screwed. Is there a way to get him back? Maybe make a restore all npc button in the settings but please help.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Are you still in the town or you already left to the map since killing him? If you’re still in town, you can close the app and it won’t save it.

  5. keliana matti

    I accidentally killed all the trainers and the shop owner.
    and i went to the map and it saved. Is there any other way that can bring them back?

  6. Justin Yeo.

    I am deadly loving this game….
    But I don’t really love to see map and hanging here and there
    Thx for the tips and walkthrough
    Thx a lot !!!

  7. Josh

    This website has been super helpful thanks. I’m having an issue. I beat the game and try using the “new game+” feature and it doesn’t work. When I click it it shows that I have all the skills but when I go into the game all my skills are at 5 still. Does anyone else have this issue? How does this work?

    1. grandsnowbear

      It’s perfectly fine. Neww game + resets your stats and items, but retains the skills that you have acquired previously 🙂

  8. stickfigarmy

    I chose to help kill the ninja trainer, she vanished and now that I know that I should have saved her I wanted to know, is there any way to get her skills now?

  9. Kenny

    I chose to try to slay Eliza to be with the royal guard out of curiosity. But do they give me a new mission or what?

  10. Doug

    All the wizard skills, some necromancer, bard, witch, but after meeting the King (trying not to spoil anything) cannot figure out what to do for lack of defense? Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.

  11. Necromancer

    Guys I have gone crazy mode and went to castle to kill guards then the royale chamber and killed guards and killed Stewart with them now I have completed the shard quest and cant finish it quest .i can’t see Stewart or anyone or any NPC (I killed all the NPC in the game ) they all disappeared

  12. Rick

    Yo? can’t get the ambush site to spawn. I went through all proper steps, but nuttin. I need battlemage to finish out my lighting god build. Bard/Monk/Knight/Wizzard/Paladin/Ninja/Rogue/Battlemage

    Generalist: Reduces the stat requirements for equipping items or learning skills by 30%.
    Switch out after skill r learned. I lean to Might from the paladin line.

    Concussion: Your critical strikes with blunt weapons have a 50% chance to knock enemies down for 2 seconds.
    Grit: Increases weapon damage by 50 percent of your endurance, and reduces the duration of negative status effects by 50 percent. (Passive)
    Impending Doom: Whenever you land a critical hit, your remaining cooldowns are shortened by 1 second.
    Coupe de Grace: Increases your damage against stunned/knocked down enemies by 20%.
    Twin Disciplines: Your physical attacks have a 10% chance to grant your next magic attack 100% chance to critically strike.

    Spirit Trance: Enter a state of mental tranquility, increasing your movement speed and granting you health regeneration for 10 sec.
    Aura of Light: For ten seconds, all of your attacks will heal you for 25 percent of the damage dealt.
    Wrath: Infuse your weapon with divine wrath for ten seconds, causing your auto-attacks to deal additional damage, and chain holy lightning to nearby targets
    Holy Word: Utter a word of prayer to heal your wounds.
    Smoke Bomb. Creates a cloud of smoke, making it impossible for enemies to target you with ranged attacks, and increasing your dodge chance 30% while within the cloud.
    Thundering Weapon: While active, weapon attacks deal lightning damage, are strengthened by your spell power, and randomly stun your foes. Lasts until cancelled.
    Chain Lighting: Strikes your target with a bolt of lightning, which then proceeds to jump to nearby targets if possible, dealing less damage with each jump.
    Thunder Bolt: Your body explodes with an electric shock wave, dealing damage to nearby enemies and knocking them down briefly.

    How it works: Run in a pop smoke. This reduces dmg by uping dodge and forces all ranged attackers to come in close due to not being able to target u. Then turn on Aura of Light and Wrath. After that ends most will be dead. Continue if off cd due to Impending doom. Fire off Chain Lighting and Thunderbolt as you see fit. If you get into a “o shit” situation use Spirit trance + Holy Word and Smoke Bomb. Just kep auto attacking, criting and keeping ppl knocked down. As far as euipment go with the strongest armor u can find and the strongest fist weapons. Why fist weapons? Fastest weapons in the game. More hits = more crits = less cooldown. Trinkets use atack speed and cool down reduction (overall not instant). Stats? Just stat out for needed values for skill learns. Bard helps with this, but u can do it with out bard. After all is said and done with stats drop the rest into skill for criting.

  13. Rick

    typos sry. I had it in a nice outline, but for some reason it got all messed up.

  14. mac

    Why is that when i play ambush site where you gonna help the battlemage, and when the conversation starts, it always blacked out.i mean is totally black.and everytime i restarts.its always the same hapoens

    1. AppUnwrapper

      That sounds like a bug. Never heard of that happening, but you might want to contact the developer.

  15. John

    “Easier” Way to Obtain Barbarian Trainer (If you don’t want to fight the Frost Wyrm): To prove your strength to the barbarian trainer, you CAN fight him. Switch to casual mode, then keep attacking him until he tells you that he accepts you as his student.

  16. Scott

    Having trouble with the Royal Meeting. I keep dying. What am I doing wrong?

  17. Nunu Pamungkas

    Loving this game. I’ve been playing the original Battleheart from like, a couple months ago. And I was shocked to see that there’s a 3D version of the game, which ultimately is also a sequel.

    What I’m happy about is the fact that the difficulty hasn’t changed from the original Battleheart. I’m a bit underleveled, so I went on Casual Mode against the final boss. Still dead. Went on to try the Colosseum on Casual, to see what am I fighting. Still dead. Battleheart and Battleheart Legacy is practically the Dark Souls of mobile. Difficulty doesn’t change, even if you lower it. Sure, it’s easier. But when you’re overwhelmed, that Casual Mode will mean nothing.

    What’s a good way to get a lot of money? I see your thousands but mine has never been over 2 thousand

  19. Harry

    I really need some money. My pockets are always low. What’s a good way to get a lot of money in early game? Also, could you have builds for the classes on their pages? These would help a lot, thx.

    1. Harry

      (Don’t reply to this comment plz)

  20. Harry

    App. I have 2 things to ask. One: I seem to always be low on money, what’s a good place early game to get a lot of money? Two: Can you put up builds for each of the classes on their page? Mavye even different builds for doing different stuff, one for coliseum, one for grinding, etc. thx
