Welcome to this post, where we will see how you can start playing cryptoblades from zero to start earning money playing.
This guide is a step by step guide for beginners, if you have experience in play to earn games, you might already know how some parts work. It can be a bit complicated to start if you have never played any game of this style, a NFT cryptos game, and for that this guide is ideal if this is your case.
What we will do is create an account on metamask. You can always create more accounts once you have one created. We will make a new account in cryptoblades, we will connect our wallet for the first time, you will see this message. Here as you will see it already tells you the steps with even videos of what to do to get started, although we will also see it in this video.
You may already know the first steps, if it is the case go ahead in the video or post, but for now, let’s see how to buy BNB to send it to your metamask wallet, and then buy SKILL, the cryptoblades cryptocurrency that we will use to start playing.
If you don’t have an account with binance, below I will leave you a link to create your account and follow the steps.
The first thing we need to do is to log into our Binance account, make a deposit and buy BNB.
Once you have deposited funds in your currency, go to markets, search for your currency, in my case euros, and click on the bnb/eur pair. Here go to sell, the green button and exchange your euros or your currency for BNB. You can go back to the main panel to check that you have BNB in your account.
Withdraw BNB to your Wallet
With the bnb in our balance, we need to withdraw it to our metamask wallet, for this we will go to wallet and spot wallet. Here, we will search for BNB, and click on withdraw or withdraw. You will see the following panel.
Now, we open our metamask wallet and click on your address to copy it to the top. With the copied address, go back to binance and paste the address, enter the amount and the network, which you must enter BEP20 Check that everything is correct and that you have entered the BEP20 network and click on confirm, enter the codes and confirm the transaction. Note that there is a minimum withdrawal of BNB, and if you do not have more than the minimum you may not be able to withdraw it. If this is your case, you should buy some more BNB. After a few minutes, you should be able to see your BNB in your wallet.
If you don’t have the binance Smart chain set up in metamask, I will leave you an article in the description of how to set it up, and you can also copy what you will see on screen, by going to the top right of your metamask, settings, networks and add networks, and copy the information you will see.
To buy skill, we are going to use apeswap, but you can also use pancakeswap. Here just connect your metamask, and you can select to skill, we look for it. We select it, and now we can exchange our bnb for skill, but we have to use some BNB for transactions, so don’t use all the BNB you have available. My recommendation is to leave 0,1 bnb to be sure you don’t run out, because in every fight or transaction, we will need BNB in our wallet to pay for it.
I will use in this case 1 BNB for 11 skill, skill is getting expensive lately. We click on swap, confirm swap and confirm in our metamask the transaction. Now we should see our skill in the wallet in 30 to 60 seconds.
Buy your first character
Now we can go back to cryptoblades, and it will tell you that you don’t have any character, but you can buy one in exchange for the skill price you see on the screen. We click, and confirm in metamask. First we must approve and then confirm again in metamask.
Now we will have our first character, and it appears here. At the top right, you will see 5 skills that you can only use inside the game, that you get for free for creating an account and buying your first character. So now you can buy another character if you want.
You can buy more characters, as you see above up to 4, but it is not the best decision. To do this, we will go to the Marketplace, although sometimes it doesn’t work because the servers are receiving a lot of traffic lately. If it’s your case and it doesn’t work, we can go to characters.cryptoblades.tools, I’ll leave the link in the description, here you can filter by the different elements, levels and other aspects. What I would do, is to focus on a single element. There are 4 elements in the game, and when you fight, and go into combat, you have to select the weapon. You get a free one for creating your account, but you will see that it has elements and attributes as well. IF you have different characters of different elements, the synergy with the weapon is not so good.
So when you start and only play against the machine, only take characters of one element, as they will have better synergy with your weapon. And then you can use the same weapon on every character, so with a firearm, and all fire characters, the synergy will be better and you wouldn’t need different weapons.
If at the beginning you get a water character as in this case, we will look for water characters in the Marketplace. We can also look at the stamina, which means you have to spend 40 stamina to be able to fight. Usually what people do, is to buy a character, fight 5 times, and then sell it. We filter from the lowest to the most expensive, because we want to spend as little as possible to get the best character. The ideal is to buy characters with some level, like this level 7 for 3.3 skill. If let’s say you want to buy this character, you double click on the ID, control c, go back to cryptoblades, click on market, click on search NFT’s, and paste the ID and click on search character. You will see that it appears below, and if you want to buy it, select it and you will see the purchase button, click there, and metamask will open to confirm the transaction.
As you can see, for a lower price you can get a lvl 7 in the Marketplace. Therefore, it is better to buy characters in the Marketplace and not directly in cryptblades as we have seen before. Another interesting option is to join the discord, and here they have a chat room called Marketplace. Here there is a bot that constantly updates any changes that are made, such as this level 1 character, which has lowered its price. To buy it, simply copy the ID as we have done before, and it is the same process we have seen.
To use the funds we have been given for free for creating the account, we can only use them to recult a character, and not in the Marketplace. To do this, click on recruit and confirm in metamask. The main problem is that it is totally random, so it is not worth using your skills from your wallet.
Now as you can see, we have been lucky and we have a team of all water elements.
Weapons and Blacksmith
The next important aspect is weapons. To do this, we go to blacksmith and look for a weapon. You can also buy a random weapon by clicking on forge, and here you see the percentages of stars you can get for the weapon. My recommendation is that you buy a good 4 star weapon, or 3 stars to start with, and filter for water because we only have water characters. And we look for the other attribute that also boosts water characters. As you can see, for the price here, they are quite expensive, so to start, as we will only fight against the machine, we can go with a 2 star weapon, like this one here, and copy the ID as we have done above. Paste the number and click on search weapon, and check it as we have seen previously with the characters.
Now let’s go to combat and how it works. We can select one of our characters, select the weapon, and we will see 4 different enemies that we can select. Besides being ordered from very likely to win to very unlikely to win. The difference is only 2 experience points, and my recommendation is to always go for the simplest battle every time.
We click on fight, and we must always confirm in metamask, and after 10 to 15 seconds, it will tell us the result of the fight. Currently there is no animation, but in the future there will be animations of the fight. When you win a battle, you will get experience for your character, and an amount of SKILL. However, to get it, you will have to click on rewards at the top left. As you can see, to claim experience you will have to confirm in metamask and pay 0,10$ approximately each time or you can accumulate experience. In the case of skill, you can also claim it, but as you can see, it has a 15% tax if you withdraw it at the moment, and every day this % is reduced by 1%. So if you wait 2 weeks to withdraw your skill, you can withdraw it all without any tax. So if you don’t want to sell your SKILL or use it to reinvest it in the game, it is best not to touch it for two weeks.
Withdraw Skill to your bank account
If you want to transfer the SKILL you get to real money, you can go back to apeswap and exchange your skill for BNB. Send the bnb to binance. Once in binance exchange it for your currency, either euros dollars or other, and withdraw your currency to your bank account. If you don’t know how to do it, in the description you can also find a video on how to withdraw money from Binance.
How much can you earn?
You can make 7 fights per day per character, because every 5 minutes you recover 1 stamina, and it is worth 40 stamina to make a fight. So every 3 and a half hours approximately, you will be able to make a fight. The easiest way is to do the fights in the morning, 5 fights, and in the afternoon 2 or 3 more fights. This way you don’t waste neither stamina nor time, and you get the maximum SKILL you can get in a day.
So every day with 4 characters, you will be able to perform 28 fights per day, and each fight is 20 to 30 seconds each fight. So it is 15 to 20 minutes a day that you must invest to maximize the SKILL you can get. If you have two accounts, simply multiply by 40 minutes. But with the current skill price, where you get 0.1 skill usually when you win, which is about 2.5$, all fights are about 70$ a day on your account. With an initial investment of a couple of hundred dollars, in about a week if the skill price is maintained, you have the money invested back, plus the characters you can sell at any time in the Marketplace. So, in a week, if you start today, you can be earning money for playing 15 to 20 minutes a day on a single account.
Once you have finished the stamina of a character, it will look like you can see on screen, and you simply select another character and repeat the process and fights with each of them.
I hope this has helped you to start playing and earning money in cryptoblades. Remember that if you don’t have an account with binance you can create one just below.
