If you’re just getting started in Loop Hero, and are looking for some beginner tips and tricks, look no further. In case you haven’t started your adventure yet, here’s the situation: the world as we know it has been destroyed by The Lich, and it’s our job to rebuild reality.
As the Loop Hero sets out on their expedition down a randomly generated path, you can place various cards down to adjust their adventure, and generate loot, resources, and enemies. These cards drop from monster encounters; they’re drawn from a deck that you build before each outing. You won’t get far by chucking down cards whenever you get them – the key is to manage the Loop Hero’s adventure by feeding them a manageable diet of foes and buffing up the board to keep the regen coming.
If you wait until you complete a loop and arrive back at the camp to head back home, you’ll leave with all your resources; if you decide to retreat mid-loop, you’ll only keep 60% of them. Die, and you’ll retain a meagre 30%, so it’s important to play it safe.
