Best Fiends Leveling Guide

Best Fiends Leveling Guide 1

Learn How to Level up Fiends Fast and Easy

In this guide, I will explain how to level up to friends in Best Fiends and why you want to. I will also give ways to level up to friends fast.

From what I can find online, the max level should be 45. But I don’t have any fiends near this level, so I can’t confirm this.

In any case, getting fiends to whatever the current max level is will take a lot of effort.

Why You Should Level up Fiends

Stronger fiends will beat slugs faster. They will do more damage.

Higher level fiends will also have better abilities. This is very important on harder levels. Your fiends will have the best abilities possible at level 20.

You Use Metormites to Level up Fiends

There are two kinds of meteormites. Blue and yellow.

Blue is more rare than yellow, but you need much less of them. You will need many yellow meteormites, and they are quite easy to get.

Collect meteormites until you have enough to level up fiends. Then go to the page that shows all your fiends and find the find you want to level up.

How to Get Metrormites

Beat New Levels

The easiest and straightforward way to get metormites is to beat new levels. You will also get some this way.

Don’t expect to get rich doing this, though. Often you will get more metormites from using keys or playing in events.

Beat Lug’s Lootballoon Levels

You get a tiny amount of metromites when you beat Lug’s lootballon levels. It is never much, but it gives you something to do.

Use Keys to Open Crates

When you open crates, you will get metormites most of the time. Sometimes you will get a jackpot and get a lot more of them.

Here are ways you can find keys.

  • You get keys from beating new world map levels.
  • Sometimes you can rarely find them while playing levels.
  • Spinning the Fiend of Fortune.
  • Play in events
  • Complete season quests
  • Watch video ads.

Spin the Wheel of Fortune

You can spin the wheel of fortune twice every ten minutes after watching ads. If you have VIP time, you don’t need to watch ads.

You can get blue and yellow metormites from the spins or things that will help you get more metormites.

You can spin the Best Fiends Fiend of Fortune Wheel two times for rewards.

Complete Events

Both weekly and seasonal events give lots of metormites as rewards.

I am at the point where it costs many metormites to level up my fiends. Playing during events is the only way I can level the fiends up in any reasonable amount of time.

There is always some event going on in the game. Even if you don’t fully complete events, you can get smaller rewards.

Make Progress in Seasons

Seasons often give a lot of rewards. Even without the pass, you can expect to get some metormites.

Complete Earthworm Levels

Beating Earthworm levels is a nice way to get extra metormites. If you beat levels on hard difficulty, you get many rewards.

I don’t play earthworm levels often or if there is an event I am interested in. But I spend some time playing them occasionally.

Collect Daily Gifts

Every new day while playing the game, you can get a gift.

These gifts don’t give you too much. But often, you get something that will help you level up fiends or make progress in levels. Sometimes you get a small amount of metormites.

I have also seen events that give rewards for just opening the game and claiming them. Be sure to look out for these events!

Make Progress in Fiend Quests

After beating so many fiend quest levels, you reach treasure chests that give rewards. You get things that help you level up fiends.

What Fiends Do You Level up First?

How I Decided What Fiends to Level Up

My strategy was to get all my fiends to level 20. At level 20, they have the best abilities. Getting fiends to level 20 will help unlock new areas as well. Once I got all fiends to level 20, I only focused on leveling fiends I plan on using often.

The Fiends I Level Up

  • Converter block fiends
  • Plus shaped bomb fiends
  • X bomb fiends
  • Double direction bomb fiends
  • Earthworms
  • Area bomb fiends

If you stick to only leveling up these fiends, you have a nice selection of fiends to use on levels without wasting too many resources. If you are a new player, you will slowly unlock these fiends as you play the game.

Why I Don’t Level up Single Direction Bomb Fiends

You know those cute fiends you get early in the game that have bombs that only explode in one direction? For example, Temper, Jojo, etc. These fiends are very weak once you start unlocking more fiends.

The fiend Temper. Temper is level 18.

I don’t recommend leveling up these fiends much. The moment you get all cross bomb fiends, these fiends become replaceable and just not as useful.

I recommend getting these fiends to level 20 and then stopping. Getting these fiends to level 20 will allow you to do some decent damage and have the strongest bombs until you unlock newer fiends.

Why I Level up Converter Block Fiends

If a level requires you to get to so many of a block, you are going to use a converter block fiend. Since these fiends do low damage, sometimes they feel like a burden.

By keeping these fiends levels high, you can try to get them to do more damage. The damage won’t go up fast. But these fiends can eventually become good damage dealers.

Also remember that getting them to level 20 gives you the best abilities.

There are also double Converter block fiends. I am too low-level in the game to know if you unlock these fiends in the future or not. But I can see you can spend gold to get them earlier.

Once these fiends are unlocked, I don’t recommend leveling up the standard block collection fiends anymore. Consider these fiends a replacement for the older ones.

Why I Level up Plus Shaped Fiends Cross Bomb Fiends

I level up Plus shaped bomb fiends because they have a lot of utility, and the bombs can reach multiple spots at once. During some hard levels, this is extremely useful.

Why I Level up X Bomb Fiends Fiends

X bomb fiends are very situational. I don’t use them much in levels anymore. But they do high damage. So I level up them eventually. Early the game, they helped out a lot.

Why I Level up Double Direction Bomb Fiends

Double direction bomb fiends are like upgraded versions of the first fiends you get in the game. Instead of exploding bombs in one line, these explode in two lines.

These fiends can feel very situational. But I find myself using them somewhat often in levels.

Why I Level up the Earthworms

Earthworms are extremely helpful. I recommend getting at least one as soon as reasonably possible. Having two is even better!

These fiends have skills that damage slugs directly.

Once you get high level earthworm fiends over level 20, any level that only requires beating slugs is extremely easy. These fiends completely remove any challenge from these types of levels.

But the hard part is you have to collect stars beating levels that don’t help during events and seasons. You have to go out of your way to get these fiends. But it is worth it long term.

Why I Level up Area Bomb Fiends

Area bomb fiends like Whisper are very useful. The game often recommends using them for most levels. Whisper has a lot of styles, and you get one for free from completing her fiend quest.

My whisper does 100 extra damage becasue of two styles.

What About Epic Fiends?!

Epic Fiends are the strongest fiends in the game. I think calling them epic is quite accurate.

If you have epic fiends, you want to level it up fast. But it also costs more metormites to level these fiends up. So leveling them will be slow.

Also, keep in mind if you only have one or two epic fiends, there can be a chance you can’t use them on a level. So you can’t rely on epic fiends to win all levels you for. Epic fiends are strong. But they are not instant win buttons. Not without a whole team of them, anyway.

The only way to unlock epic fiends is to spend real money, and buying one is about $30 (USD).

I unlocked one epic fiend with gold bars years ago. You used to be able to buy epic fiends with gold. I have Karma unlocked. I am so happy I did as this fiend is very useful and I use it on almost every level I can.

I think the cost to unlock many epic fiends is too high.

But I am not here to judge. If you like Best Fiends enough to spend about $100, you can get about three of these fiends. I am sure at that point, you will have a very powerful team of fiends and will always be able to use at least one on a level.

Level up Fiends Evenly

Try to level up fiends evenly.

Leveling up one fiend to a very high level might seem like a good idea. But it is not.

What happens if you can’t bring that fiend to a level? On some levels, you might need a converter block instead of your favorite fiend.

It is better to have a team of fiends close in level. You will have many options on what fiend to use when playing levels.
