Guild coins are an extremely valuable form of currency in Idle Heroes, but especially when starting out, it can be tough to figure what you should use them on.
Although it may seem tempting, you should only ever use your guild coins on guild tech, which makes it important to understand what all the different tech trees give you and which ones you should level up first.
Idle Heroes Basic Guild Tech Tree
When starting out, you can level up the basic guild tech for each class and once you level up everything to the max for one class, you unlock an extra set of advanced guild tech for that class.
Each stat costs gold and guild coins to increase and the further you get in the tree, the more each level is going to cost.
The guild tech for each type of hero can differ slightly depending on the kind of stats the class utilizes, so they are separated into different class trees.
Each guild tech applies to all heroes of that specific type in all game modes, including all PvE and PvP modes, which makes guild tech so crucial for success.
The advanced tech tree is the same for all classes, as they’re more about reducing damage and effects rather than boosting damage or speed.
The table below showcases the maxed out stats for each guild tech and the gold and guild coins needed to max out a specific tech.
|Guild Tech Name||Hero Types||Maxed Level Stats||Total Cost to Max Level|
|HP||All||+30% HP (Level 60)|| 9.2M|
|+25% Attack (Level 50)|| 8.9M|
|+20% Crit (Level 40)|| 8.3M|
|Crit Damage||Assassin||+25% Crit Damage (Level 50)|| 8.9M|
|Armor Pierce||Assassin||+15% Armor Break (Level 30)|| 7.4M|
|+15% Precision (Level 30)|| 7.4M|
+15% Block (Level 30)
+20% Block (Level 40)
+25% Block (Level 50)
|Skill Damage||All||+20% Skill Damage|| 6.8M|
+20 Speed + 10% Attack
+20% Skill Damage
Advanced Guild Tech Tree
Once you have levelled up the basic guild tech tree (the inner circle), to the maximum for a specific hero type, you unlock the advanced guild tech tree (outer circle) for that class.
The advanced skills are hidden behind hieroglyphic symbols in the beginning, but will open up once you max out the basic guild tech.
These skills are a lot more expensive and you should definitely fill in all other normal guild tech trees for all classes before moving onto any of the advanced trees.
The advanced tech focuses on reducing damage and adding protection from negative effects like stuns or petrify, which is more crucial in the late game PvE and PvP scenarios.
|Guild Tech Name||Max Level Stats||Total Cost to Max Level|
|Anti Warrior||Reduce damage against |
|Anti Mage||Reduce damage against |
|Anti Ranger||Reduce damage against |
|Anti Assassin||Reduce damage against |
|Anti Priest||Reduce damage against |
|Blessing of Purification||Stun immunity rate +20%|
Freeze immunity rate +20%
Silence immunity rate +20%
|Spell of Agility||Petrify immunity rate +20%|
Twine immunity rate +20%
Horrify immunity rate +20%
|Immortal Roar||Taunt immunity rate +20%|
Dazzle immunity rate +20%
|Heart of Crystal||Seal of Light immunity rate +20%|
Shapeshifting immunity rate +20%
Does Guild Tech and Guild Coins transfer over?
One of the most asked questions about Idle Heroes guild tech is what happens when you leave a guild or move on to a new one.
Do you lose guild coins or tech when leaving a guild? The simple answer is no, guild tech and coins are never wiped and they always transfer over, unless you clear them manually from the tech tree (which costs gems to do) and even then you get them all back.
If you have acquired guild tech in a guild and decide to leave it, those stats remain even when not in a guild at all, but you won’t be able to upgrade or reset them before you join or create a new guild.
Guild tech can easily be reset from the tech tree and the first reset for each class is free, after which the gem cost to do so is exponential.
When resetting guild tech, you always get all your gold and guild coins back, so you never lose anything when resetting the tech.
Is Guild Tech the best use of Guild Coins?
Many new players often wonder if they should spend their precious guild coins in guild tech or transform them into Guild Solidus in the guild store.
While it may seem tempting to buy easy hero shards from the guild store, you should NEVER waste your guild coins in the guild store.
Even with the new guild store update where you can buy Guild Solidus with your guild coins, it is in no way worth it, as it is so easy to get guild solidus from the guild settlements.
The guild store has tons of great hero copies to buy, but when you buy those with guild solidus and spend all your guild coins in guild tech, you will be much stronger faster and it will be crucial in the long run.
You should only ever spend your guild coins on guild tech as it will make all your heroes stronger and the faster you max out the tech, the bigger advantage you will have over other players who spend their precious coins on measly hero shards.
Patience is key when it comes to Idle Heroes!
When to start investing in Guild Tech
Now that we’ve established that you should spend every single guild coin on your tech trees, you might be wondering when to invest into guild tech.
The answer depends on your current gold amount.
You should always prioritize levelling up your main heroes first and upgrading their armors with gold, as well as buying the hero shards from the normal market with gold every day.
Once you level up enough and start having enough spare gold left over, you should start throwing it into the guild tech.
In most cases, you will always keep running out of guild coins instead of gold, so for most people that wont be the issue.
In summary, keep upgrading guild tech every time you have enough guild coins and wont go broke gold-wise. The tech will be waiting for you once you have enough spare gold, just make sure not to waste your guild coins in the guild store.
Guild Tech Priority — What’s important?
When starting off and having a small amount of guild coins, you need to decide what tech to start upgrading first.
That purely depends on which hero you’ve decided to build first as your main carry.
Once you figured out which hero you are going to build to E5 first, then start upgrading that classes guild tech tree.
When upgrading the tech, you need to get to level 10 on the previous skill before you can start upgrading the next one, so you should try and get to level 10 on each tech for the chosen class first.
Once you’ve gotten all guild tech to level 10, you should start to prioritize attack, hp and speed tech, as those will give you the most noticeable boosts in PvP and PvE combat.
Attack makes you hit harder, health lets you survive longer and speed allows you to attack before the enemy. Speed is more important in PvP, so if you are not focused on Arena fights, you can leave speed tech for later.
As for the advanced tech, you should upgrade the reduced damage tech options first (priest damage reduce is not as important), as they will significantly increase your survivability. Once you have nothing else left, only then upgrade the immunity skills.
Fastest way to get Guild Coins in Idle Heroes
Guild coins in Idle Heroes are very scarce and hard to come by. Guild coins can only be obtained through guild related actions like the guild settlement and the Mysterious Chest event.
The most cost-effective way to get guild coins is by buying the most expensive chest during the Mysterious Chest event which happens alongside the Wishing Fountain event. However, the chest always costs around 5K gems which is not reasonable for a lot of new players.
This leaves us to the other ways to get guild coins, which is the Guild Settlement, Guild Raid and later, the Flame Shrine.
The guild settlement will slowly generate guild coins every hour depending on your settlement levels. This makes it crucial to work on your guild settlements as soon as possible, and get your guild mates to help you level them up.
The Guild Raid let’s you attack a set of bosses a few times a day and you get a certain amount of guild coins depending on how much damage you did to that boss once it’s killed. You also get bonus coins if you dealt the killing blow to the boss.
Once your guild has defeated the last level 60 boss, your guild will unlock the Flame Shrine and you will no longer be able to attack in the Raid.
The Flame Shrine lasts for 4 days during which you can attack an immortal enemy lineup after which you will get guild coins depending on how much damage you did to the boss.
There is no other easy way to gain guild coins, which is why the mysterious chest is such a great way to get a lot coins and is considered worth the high gem price.
