I’ve been playing a bunch of Skylanders lately. I haven’t been playing through the story mode though, I’ve been playing all the characters through the Heroic Challenges. These are 3 – 5 minute little side stories that the characters can do to earn increased speed, Armor, Critical Hit and Elemental Power. While you do these Heroic Challenges you can also earn gold. You can do this by placing the Treasure Chest onto the Portal of Power along with your character. This only works for Heroic Challenges that were in Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. In Skylanders Giants there are 27 Heroic Challenges that were in Spyro’s Adventure. So, if you do all 27 of them and get the treasure chest in each challenge you can earn about 8100 gold (300 per Treasure Chest). Apparently there are 5 Heroic Challenges from Spyro’s Adventure that did not make it into Skylanders Giants.
Another way to gain a bunch of money is to take your character into the Lair of Kaos level in Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. This will only work with characters that appeared in that game (Series 1 and Series 2 figures) and won’t help for Giants (both giant and regular sized) figures. If you play through the Lair of Kaos level and you have the Treasure Chest on the portal as well you can gain a couple thousand gold every run through plus if you have a low level character it will level up quickly.
I moved away from the Lair of Chaos method once Giants came along. Now I add the treasure chest to the portal for the Heroic Challenges. Playing these gets me better stats, increases the levels of my characters and will also get the characters closer to completing their individual quests. Quests like defeating 1000 enemies, if you complete the Heroic Challenge in Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure you don’t get credit for defeating enemies in Skylanders Giants. You get the credit for completing the challenge but it won’t help in Skylanders Giants. So here’s what I’d suggest.
Tip For Leveling up your Skylanders.
Perform Heroic Challenges in Skylanders Giants with the Treasure Chest on the Portal to earn 300 gold per challenge.
Tip For Gaining extra gold in Skylanders.
Always have the Treasure Chest on the portal of power.
In Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure you can get tons of treasure chests by finding the chest in the ruins then talking to one of the NPCs and the Treasure Chest “resets” and you can find it again.
Play Heroic Challenges using the Treasure Chest on the portal (Does not work for Skylanders Giants only challenges.)
Take your character through the Lair of Chaos and use the treasure chest to get extra gold.
Do you have any tips for increasing your gold in Skylanders?
