DLC Guide + FAQ
A quick guide to the DLCs, covering common questions and a small summary for each card expansion.
The guide hopes to answer questions about the Faeria DLC. This will focus on the main DLCs - the expansions that unlock new cards. Small notes on other DLC are at the bottom.
Do I need the DLCs to be competitive?
Nope. A list of decks without any DLC needed can be found here. [List by SuperbLizard]
Which one should I get first?
If you only plan to get one, I recommend Fall of Everlife if you want to be more competitive, or Chronnicles of Gagana if you want more creative deck building options.
However, if you know how you like to play I'd recommend looking at the full list of cards in each set. (linked below in the detailed guide)
Do the DLCs transfer accross platforms?
Unfortunately not. Since accounts accross platforms cannot be linked, DLC is unable to be shared between those.
What do I get when I purchase a DLC?
First, the DLC should unlock the relevant cards to be earned. You can check this in card viewer. The cards will need to be earned before you can use them in decks.
However, each DLC comes with 10 battle chests, each containing 4 cards you don't already have. You can additionally use saved crafting charges to get more.
You will also receive cosmetics exclusive to that DLC.
Sales ranging from 30-50% have happened over the last year for each of the DLC. My guess would be generally every ~2-3 months one could expect something like that.
Is there any way to test out cards before buying?
Yes! In pandora - the draft mode - you can draft cards from any expansion in the game, even if you don't personally own it. You can play a few rounds of pandora and find cards you enjoy playing with.
How are the DLC denoted on the card?
The text background on the cards is different for each set. Examples:
- Fall of Everlife
- Chronicles of Gagana
In depth guide on each expansion DLC
Each title will link to the original card reveal page from when the cards were originally released. A small summary of key concepts for each DLC has been included.
Note: This guide has a slight bias for competitive cards.
