Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ran its first Spirit Board event in the game this weekend 14-17 December. The theme of the event was characters wearing glasses, and included powerful spirits offered on a regular schedule, as well as increased gold rewards to gather these new spirits.
The next event, scheduled to run from 21 to 24 December, will contain Fire Badge. Now that we've seen how to work, there are some ideas on how to exploit these events, which will continue to happen every week, to get the most unlockable goodies.
How Events Work In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Two of the 1
It's quite easy to put everyone together in the weekly event of your collection because two of the spirits on Spirit Board will always be chosen among the spirits of this limited list. While most of the spirits on the list are beginner or advanced quality, there will be two ace quality and two play quality drinks in each event. This makes it easier to target the spirits you need while enjoying the bonus money.
Each of the four highest grades is also available twice a day at scheduled times for a full hour. Spirits usually disappear when you lose a fight against them on Spirit Board, and the only way to get a new shot is to use a rematch item. But these spirits return to the board if you fail to defeat them. You can keep trying over and over again until the hour is up.
A banner appears at the bottom right of the screen on the Spirits Mode menu, which announces the event on Wednesday before the event starts, and will let you know which drinks are available as well as the specific times the ace and legendary spirits will be active.
This is a good opportunity for players who usually have trouble with the harder fighting in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to get hold of some legendary spirits. Try the match a few times, adjust your breath or try another fighter and if something still gives you trouble, you can figure out what kind of betting you want to give you the edge you need and hopefully earn or buy one.
One of the legendary spirits during the first event was, for example, Star Fox's James McCloud. This match was a one-off battle with an aggressive Fox, who got increased defense, attack and speed when he got over 50 percent injury.
The problem I had with him was that he would often get a final smash early in the match – one of the ways that strikes up the difficulty of computerized legendary characters is to give them quick charging times for their final smash – and then he would have one others before I could finish him or get a final smash of my own. I finally used a "Slow FS Charging" element to stop what happened and I managed to beat him simply.
Improved Currency Rewards
The Second Great Draw for The Super Smash Bros Ultimate Spirit Board Events are the improved benefits of winning battles for adventure. This is why I have five of the James McCloud Islands now.
The Smash-Spiritus games operate in a multi-currency Gacha style. The two main currencies are points (SP) and gold. SP is used to buying merchandise from the stores you unlock in the World of Light campaign and you can use SP to buy a second shot on the minigames spinning shield you must win to catch Spirit Board spirits. It also costs some SP to level your Spirits with snacks or to combine lower levels into more powerful through the calling system.
Gold is used to continue a classic mode round when you die and buy items in the store under the Pink Vault tab in the main menu. This store sells unlockable music tracks and Mii-fighter costumes, as well as spirits and objects. You get relatively small amounts of gold from the World of Light Adventure Mode and Spirit Board, although there are some chests that contain larger amounts of gold on the promotion card. Some achievements will also give you a bunch of gold in the early hours of the game.
But you need a lot of gold to unlock all the music tracks and costumes.
Gold is awarded for multiplayer matches – you get more of it to win, and still more if there are more players in your game – in addition to completing Classic Mode. A non-event legendary from Spirit Board gave me only 29 gold, to give you an idea of how rarely the currency may be.
But the spectacle event awarded more lump sum gold than I've seen for other activities. I earned 528 gold to beat the ace-tier event Spirits and a Japanese 1,514 to beat legends. The beginners and advanced event spirits are awarded 50 and 100 gold, respectively, but you can win those matches in seconds with a high level of mental strain.
Online matches are the most lucrative common activity to earn this currency, outside of the weekly events. Winning a three-layer, one-on-one match gave me 492 gold, and lost paid around 100 gold. You may be pretty good for gold if you often play online, but the increased gold event was the easiest way to waste the currency you need compared to other activities. There is no comparison.
The forthcoming Fire Emblem event will increase SP, and it should be the most effective way to build a large reserve of the the currency as well.
Buy a new shot on an ace-spirit spirit in the Spirit Board screen minigame costs 1,200 SP and another shot on a Legend costs 4,000. It costs 2800 SP to combine spirit cores to receive a Legend-tier spirit, and it costs 10,000 SP to buy one from one of the stores. Spend some time losing Spirit Board during the next events or future events with similar rewards if you find yourself spending a lot of SP while unlocking spirits.
Events will happen every weekend and the increased rewards will probably switch between increasing these currencies. If you read this after the Four Emblem event, or if you're bullied about missing the spectacle event, it will almost certainly be an event with a similar reward structure sometime soon. Do not worry.
To erase spirits, do it during an event
It can be difficult to find a particular character with almost 1,300 spirits in the game. Events are a great opportunity to add specific spirits to your collection and to build your liquor collection from famous franchises, since the characters get a state bonus when using liquor from their game universe.
If you find it hard to get stories, it's easier to get them under an event because they return to the Spirit Card if you fail the match under its intended appearance. You can use many matches in the hope of being lucky by the hour you know the spirits will be available.
And events increase the rewards, so be aware of the events to see when the currency you need will be enhanced if you want the grinding to be as effective as possible.
If you want to collect all music tracks or Mii skin or splash a lot of SP in the World of Light stores, check out these weekly events are the best way to make it happen.
