  1. Yugioh Duel Links FTP Beginner Guide Last Updated:11/22/17 Notes -All tips/suggestions are based on the state of the game and predictions will not be made. -This guide is meant for any FTP that wants to start off competitively as quickly as possible. -Remember to create a Konami ID otherwise since it's what backs up your account and if you undownload it or your mobile device breaks you are screwed unless you get lucky and Konami recovers it. WHAT NOT TO DO: Do not trade in level up cards unless you know for sure you can get them from farming. Do not trade in Barrel Dragon,Blue-Eyes White Dragon,Dark Magician, Dark Magician Girl,Legendary Fisherman, Red-Eyes Black Dragon, and Blast Held By A Tribute due to them being needed for Stage Missions and are a pain to obtain from farming. Other cards to not trade in are event and roaming duelist SR/UR cards.Also Insect Queen & Harpie Lady Sisters since they cannot be obtained from farming and are only useful if you want to unlock duel mats with their images. Waste Gems on terrible or old sets unless they have farming staple cards or staple cards needed for a specific meta deck Competitive Goals -Complete Mokuba Bingo as much as possible to get a Enemy Controller and to unlock Mokuba. -To build Beatdown (quickest and cheapest deck) and then eventually CAs. -Get 2-3x Copies of Wall of Disruption and 2x Forbidden Chalice from Servant of The Kings. -Try to get 60 and 100 wins in pvp to get 2 free SR cards every pvp season. -Reach Stage lv 30 to unlock lv 40 Legendary Duelist. Terms Farming: Is a method in which you try to get a duel assessment score of 8000 to increase your chances of getting certain cards from Legendary duelist. Gems: The game’s currency used to buy packs. Gold:Used to buy cards in the Card Trader’s shop. Kaiba or Yami Yugi? Does not matter which one you choose at the moment. What To Spend Gx Card Tickets On? SR 2x Union Attack: This card is staple card in farming decks and is hard to get outside the Duelist Kingdom event. 1x Enemy Controller: Very powerful staple card. UR They are all terrible or Card Trader cards. I would suggest holding onto them until April. Card Trader Cards To Get Farming Mythical Beast Cerberus: Mandatory and only need one in standard Cerberus farming decks. Thunder Dragon&Twin Headed Thunder Dragon Useful in most Vassal based farming decks. Magical Mallet: Very useful farming card. Murmor of The Forest Staple card in Cerberus Riryoku: Useful in Cerberus farming decks and decent when staring off in pvp. Yami Cerberus. Riryoku Field: Useful for farming Kaiba. Meta Hazy Flame Sphinx Has a entire deck based around it that is currently tier 3 in the meta. Guardian Statue In a staple in most stun/control decks. Mirage Dragon Decent in a deck starting out. The rest are are garbage and staple in other decks that are not great in the current meta or have potential in the future to be better. Stage Missions: -Are missions that give you gems stones, or keys for doing a certain task -Recommended to stay at stage 30 which is when you unlock Lv 40 Legendary duelist and is one of the easiest stages to grind for color keys and gold.

Level Up Priorities Skills: Bandit Keith: Lv 20 Restart One of the best skills in the game especially in Cyber Angels.
