Free-to-Play Guide

While there is a lot of paid content in Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, there are also a lot of ways to progress in the game without spending any money.  

Daily Grind

Daily Tasks

From the Quests menu, you can see all of the available daily tasks and special daily events.  Make sure that you complete all of these each day, especially the Cooking task for free stamina and the Free Stage and PvP Fight Festival tasks for free Diamonds.

Even though there are only a limited number of times necessary to complete Death Matches and PvP Fight Festivals, it's worthwhile if you have the free time to complete out your max number of both.

For standard Death Matches, each user can only trigger six maximum per day randomized between the Red Demon, Gray Demon and Crimson Demon (although special costume sets can be worn during boss battles to have a higher likelihood of a specific boss). For Hell Death Matches, Bellmoth can be triggered three times per user. However, leaving your game running on any screen that isn't a battle (such as while visiting villages) can allow invitations to be sent by other players, which do not count to the user's daily maximum. This is an effective way to farm Death Match materials. Additionally, wearing certain costume sets will grant gift chests with bonus costume enhancing materials, even if the user cannot yet battle Hell difficulty of the standard Death Matches. For example, the New Year's sets will guarantee the Red Demon, Gray Demon, or Crimson Demon Howlex when worn by Elizabeth, Jericho or Meliodas respectively when completing Boss Battles. When farming on the Hell difficulty of standard Death Matches, Wedding sets for Zaneri, Jenna and Elaine will grant additional Costume enhancement items respectively when farming the Red Demon, Gray Demon, and Crimson Demon Howlex. Last, but not least, Derieri equipped with her Valentine costume will grant one random Costume Enhance Materials Box when clearing Death Matches (limit of six times per day), and this can even be included with event Death Matches.

For PvP Fight Festival, you can hold a maximum of five entries at any given time. Entries regenerate every hour, and completing more PvP fights and making the most of entry tickets will help to farm more currency to be able to spent in the Fight Festival Shop.

Hawk's Pass

Hawk's Pass is a four-week long opportunity to earn free rewards. For additional rewards you can purchase a Hawk's Pass, but you can also get by just fine by completing the free missions each week although you won't get as many rewards. Each week there will be missions posted to complete. If you aren't able to complete the mission in that week, you'll still have an opportunity to complete these the following week except for the fourth and final week.

Some examples of missions that may be on the Weekly Hawk Pass include:

  • Open x Village Chests (do this by going into any village and smashing chests, which will also grant you free rewards)
  • Clear [Fort Solgres] Attribute Dungeon [Enhancement] x times (do this by vising the Enhance Dungeons in Fort Solgres that use Stamina or Attribute Dungeon Keys -- note, you must go to the regular Enhance Dungeons and not the Enhance section of the Events Dungeon)
  • Clear [Fort Solgres] Attribute Dungeon [Evolution] x times (do this by vising the Evolve Dungeons in Fort Solgres that use Stamina or Attribute Dungeon Keys -- note, you must go to the regular Evolve Dungeons and not the Enhance section of the Events Dungeon)
  • Clear [Fort Solgres] Gold Dungeon x times (do this by vising any of the Gold Dungeons in Fort Solgres -- note, you must go to the regular Gold Dungeons that use Gold Dungeon Keys and not the Gold section of the Events Dungeon)
  • Exchange Materials with King x times (do this by visiting King in the Tavern and exchanging any materials)
  • Clear Death Match x times (any Death Match, triggered by either you or a friend, will do)
  • Purchase x items from the Friendship Coin Shop (any item of any cost purchased in the Friendship Coin Shop will suffice)
  • Eat x meals at a friend’s Tavern (do this by going to your Friend List, selecting a Friend, clicking “Visit Tavern”, then “Eat a Dish”.  Select any meal from their table and acquire cooking buffs and Friendship Coins)

Hawk's Pass was previously an infrequent event, but has since been converted to a permanent event. In addition to the weekly quests, there are also daily tasks that can be completed. All of these daily tasks can easily be completed while doing the daily task list.

Daily tasks for Hawk's Pass include:

  • Eat a dish You made one time
  • Check in one time
  • Clear Fort Solgres one time
  • Clear Free Stages one time
  • Clear Boss Battle one time
  • Use 30 Stamina
  • Use one Auto Clear ticket

In addition to the pass rewards, completing weekly and daily tasks will earn Hawk's Scrap Bowls, which are currency that can be used in the Hawk Pass Loyalty Shop and Sacred Treasure Shop to buy limited time seasonal costumes as well as certain normal items that are consistently available in the shop. Normal items for the Loyalty Shop are:

  • Eastin's Composure Stamp
  • Diane's Happiness 2 Stamp
  • Elizabeth's Happiness 2 Stamp
  • King's Happiness 1 Stamp
  • Full Awakening Token (limit one per Hawk's Pass cycle)
  • Part 1 Guaranteed SSR Ticket (limit one per Hawk's Pass cycle)
  • UR Treasure Chest (limit ten per day to claim)
  • SSR Equipment Selection Ticket (limit two per day to claim)

Each daily tasks gives 5 Hawk's Scrap Bowls with 7 tasks per day, and each weekly task gives 35 Hawk's Scrap Bowls, with 9 tasks per week. This means that a maximum of 2240 Hawk's Scrap Bowls can be earned during each cycle. Costumes in the Sacred Treasure Shop cost either 30 Diamonds or 1400 Hawk's Scrap Bowls, and Costumes in the Loyalty Shop cost between 950 and 1150 Hawk's Scrap Bowls.

Fort Solgres Dungeons

Completing repeated battles in the Fort Solgres Dungeons will trigger an ad bonus three times daily.  Regardless if there is an event up for the SP Dungeon or not, try to complete all three daily ad bonuses for a chance at winning free Diamonds.

Since Event Dungeon Keys replenish on their own over time, it is a good idea to use them whenever they are available. If you are short on time, using the Stage Auto Clear Tickets can help to get this task done quickly.

Attribute Dungeon Keys or stamina are required to enter the Enhance, Evolve and Gold Dungeons. The Stamina requirements for these are quite steep, so it is beneficial to wait for a half stamina event to farm these Dungeons.

At the top of the Event, Enhance, Evolve and Gold Dungeon pages that are progress bars for free SSR Evolution Pendants, Hero Enhance Potions, Evolution Books and SSR Treasure Chests (respectively) that can be progressively earned as you complete Dungeon battles. When farming Event, Enhance, Evolve or Gold Dungeons, there are some units that have special Costume Set Effects that will grant additional rewards. These are :

  • Meliodas with his Halloween Costume, which will grant an additional 5* Awakening Stone once per day
  • Elaine with her Halloween Costume, which will grant up to five additional Vanya Ales per day
  • Gowther with his Halloween Costume, which will grant up to ten additional Anvils per day

Additionally, there are two time-limited Dungeons available in Fort Solgres -- these are the Broken Clock Tower and Clock Tower of Eternity Dungeons. For both of these, hourglasses are required for entry (which will be sent as gifts in the mail). Use of an hourglass entry will unlock the dungeon for only one hour for the Broken Clock Tower and half an hour for the Clock Tower of Eternity, so it is important to ensure you have sufficient stamina refills and an effective team to farm.

For the Clock Tower of Eternity, farming the earlier levels and quitting if the first phase doesn't drop a chest is the most time-effective way to farm Super Awakening coins. Out of 12 rounds, this method will typically average about 24 Super Awakening coins. It is not recommended to farm the Clock Tower of Eternity on auto due to the time limitation.

Patrol Missions require Heroes that meet certain conditions, which are listed at the top of the mission (for example: using four UR Heroes).  Heroes that have already been dispatched cannot be used for another Patrol Mission, so choose carefully when setting up your teams.  Using Diane or Kking equipped with their Wedding costume sets will grant one additional Auto Clear Ticket per day whenever the Patrol is sent out.

Patrol mode.jpg

In addition to the above Patrols, there is also a Constant Patrol at the top of the screen, where the bar fills up continuously each day, and the reward increases continuously based on the time listed above the bar.  The maximum possible rewards at 100% are:

  • 12 x 4* Hero Enhance Potions
  • 24 x Enhance Stones
  • 152,000 Gold

You can only claim one of these three rewards whenever you’re ready to claim your Constant Patrol.

Constant patrol.PNG

Since these Patrols cost no resources (other than time), there is no reason not to do these every day.

Hawk’s Run

Hawk’s Run is a dungeon-runner type mission where you can tap to jump over enemies and grab coins or roll through buildings.

Hawk run event.jpg

You’re granted five hearts at the start of the mission and you will lose one heart for each time that you fail to jump over an enemy or roll through a building.  Boosts are randomly available that will grant you an extra heart or make you into a jumbo-version of Hawk who is invincible and easily grabs up all of the coins around him.  Earning coins helps to refill any hearts that have been lost.

You can earn a free Diamond for completing Hawk’s Run for the first time as long as you finish the level with at least one heart remaining.

Hawk run diamond.jpg

After you’ve earned your free Diamond you can continue playing Hawk’s Run to earn Gold if so desired, but the most important thing is to earn your free Diamond on all available areas.

PvP Vaizel Fight Festival

Enter the Vaizel Fight Festival whenever you have entry tickets available.  Diamonds and Equipment Draw boxes are distributed on a weekly basis depending on your rank in the Fight Festival.  Additionally, for each battle that you fight you earn Fight Festival Coins, which can be used to buy Equipment, Weapons, and other content in the Fight Festival Shop.  The best content in the Fight Festival Shop is the UR Weapons which become available once you unlock the Platinum Tier Fight Festival Shop.

Brawl

In the same area of the PvP Fight Festival, Drole and Gloxinia can be found on the far left side. Here, 3 Teams vs 3 Teams (Brawl) content can be found. Each day a free Brawl Rank Reward chest can be claimed, which will award free Brawl Coins that can be spent in the Brawl Shop. Between 500 and 1800 free Brawl Coins can be earned, depending on Brawl Rank. Additionally, a Brawl Victory Reward can be earned once per day for winning three Brawls. If you are unable to win three Brawls in one day, the victories will carry over to the next day. However, wins over three will not count once the Brawl Victory Box has been claimed in a day. This Brawl Victory Box will randomly drop one of the following:

  • Equipment Engraving Stone
  • UR Treasure Chest
  • 5* Equipment Awakening Stone
  • 6* Grimoire of Strength
  • 6* Grimoire of HP
  • 6* Grimoire of Speed
  • SSR Evolution Pendant
  • 3 x SR Evolution Pendant
  • Hammer of Vaizel

Similar to Vaizel Fight Festival Entries, a maximum of five entry tickets can be held at any given time. Brawl entry tickets replenish every two hours.

Knighthood

Check-in daily with your Knighthood to earn free rewards.  If you join an active Knighthood, you can earn a free Diamond daily as long as at least 20 members check in.

Pay attention to the daily Knighthood tasks and help your Knighthood work towards earning more Knighthood Coins, which can be spent in the Knighthood Shop.  These tasks reset daily so make sure you claim any completed tasks by the end of the day or your efforts will be for naught.

Whenever available, the Knighthood Boss gives many rewards.  In the Knighthood boss, you will work together with your guild to try to achieve the highest score possible.  Each member has to aim for the highest score that they can achieve themselves, and the highest battle score per boss difficulty per member will be added to the total Knighthood points.  Battling multiple difficulties will help to accumulate more points for the Knighthood.  Scores are then tallied up at the end of each week to determine the Knighthood rankings and to distribute corresponding rewards.  

Completing the Knighthood Boss is fairly pricey on stamina, so make sure you check the appropriate recommended team for each boss before initiating the battle.

Gyro Mode

Use Gyro Mode in the Tavern once daily to visit the Seven Deadly Sins’ bedrooms and acquire free Gold and sometimes even an extra Vaizel Fight Festival entry ticket.

Daily Freebies

There are three daily freebies that are always available:

  • Hero Draw - once daily you can watch an ad to get a free draw on the Seven Deadly Sins: Part 1 banner.  If you get really lucky you might get an SSR hero from this draw, which earns you the Lucky Title.
Daily free gacha pull.PNG
  • Equipment Draw - from the Equipment Shop you can get a daily free draw
  • Coin Shop - The Silver Shop has a daily free SSR Treasure Chest
Silver shop daily free.jpg

Friends

From the Friends menu, always make sure that you greet your friends daily (click the Send All button to get this done in the easiest manner possible).

Send all button.jpg

Once you Send All, go to your mail and make sure you collect your earned Friendship Coins.

Friendship coins.jpg

Doing this will help you earn Friendship Coins to spend in the Friendship Shop, where in turn you can buy free Stamina refills.  The higher that your User level is the more total friends you can have, so keep a periodic eye on your Friends list and remove any inactive Friends and request new friends as new spaces open up.

Inbox & Notices

Periodically you will get free goodies from the game developers, which will show up in either your Inbox or your Notices section.  Check this section daily, especially to get your free Stage Auto Clear Tickets.  Additionally, in any of the mailbox sections, you can get three SSR Treasure Chests for free by watching three ads daily.

Mail notices.png

Break Chests

Gold or sometimes also materials can be found by breaking open chests in villages.  These can be found by looking for the magnifying glass locations on the mini-map in each village.

Map of village chests.jpg

You don’t get a ton of Gold from doing this, so if you’re limited on time this can be skipped.  The village chests reset daily.

Event-Based Grinding

Farming

It goes without saying that anytime events with half stamina are up, you should farm farm farm those areas.  Any extra stamina should be applied to those events, to get the most usage out of your stamina.  These types of events include:

  • Boss Battles - Rotate through each of the Boss Battles to trigger as many Death Matches (six maximum) as you can.  Once you’re done triggering all of your Death Matches you can choose which Boss Battle to farm based on the respective Awakening Material drops.
  • SP Dungeon - The best use of half stamina in the SP Dungeon is red book farming for gold (farming in the Strength attribute Evolve dungeon to acquired Grimoires of Strength, which you can then sell in a village to acquire gold).  Most players tend to prefer red book farming over other books since you can farm these levels very quickly and have the fastest turnaround to optimize your time spent farming.
  • Free Stage - Use a single unit with an AOE attack on Easy difficulty to farm materials and ingredients the most efficiently.  Farming equipment works very similarly, but you’ll want a bigger team to farm higher levels.  When salvaging equipment with Diane in the Tavern always enhance to +1 first for the best chance of getting blue Awakening stones to result from the salvage.

Power Up Spin/Bingo

Some events have Power Up Spin or Bingo events that accompany them.  For these events, you’ll be able to earn tickets or tokens from completing specific battles, as will be indicated in the event banners.  Each day there will be a maximum number of tickets that can be earned, and a maximum number of resets for the board.  In general, it is fairly easy to rack up these tickets to complete the event as long as you complete your daily tasks and farming activities.

Power up spin event.jpg

Event/Final Boss Shops

Some events (particularly the Final Boss - Temple of Belenus) have special shops that you can purchase materials from.  Whenever these are available, try to purchase as many items as possible from these shops.  If you’re limited on time or tokens and you’re not sure what to buy, join the 7DSGC community on Discord to discuss which items are the best to buy from the event shop when they’re up.

Priority items from both shops to obtain are the limited-edition Costumes that can be available.

Event shop.jpg

Tower of Trials

The Tower of Trials is an end-game PvE content that unlocks after Episode 155. Prior to the April 27th, 2021 update this content was solely event-based and would appear for a few weeks long season only. After this update, the Tower of Trials became a permanent feature with new floors periodically being added, with the plan to continue seasons' releases up through Season 8.

When the several weeks' long seasons are available, useful rewards can be obtained from completing all 25 floors. With the new format of Tower of Trials, each of the available floors can be farmed as many times as desired to obtain rewards.

Recommended teams for each new floor and/or season added can be found through the Tower of Trials page.

Battle Events

Most events come with a weekly Battle Event, which can be found from the Special portion of the Fort Solgres menu. 

New solgres battle menu.jpg
Each of these Battle Events will come with their own rewards for each level, but you’ll also be able to earn a free diamond by completing the associated event achievements (click the magnifying glass next to the progress bar to see the achievements!). 
Battle event.jpg
Most of these achievements simply require performing multiple battles, but occasionally you’ll have an achievement that requires using a hero with a specific skill (for example, using a Stun skill three times in one battle).  To help with determining which heroes can help to meet these achievements use the Hero Filter and choose the appropriate skill that is needed.

Growth Event

Growth Events, whenever available, can only be completed once but will generally offer great rewards.  These events typically require using at least one of the latest Heroes released or relate to another Hero from an active event and will demonstrate either their skills or share more information about their storylines.  Don’t worry if you don’t have the required Hero in your box yet though -- you can always borrow a friend’s Hero in order to complete the mission.  These events are a must to complete anytime that they are up.

Growth event.jpg

Share Event

Every so often an event for sharing Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross with your friends will come up.  This event is great and super easy -- all you have to do is share the app via any social media or messaging app and you can claim a free SP Dungeon Event Dungeon Key!  The key will go directly to your SP Dungeon once you claim it - you don’t even have to go look for it in your Item Storage!  Remember that this free key will count toward the five that you can hold at any given time, so you’ll want to use it whenever possible so that you can continue accruing continual keys.

Training Grotto

The Training Grotto is also called the Training Dungeon or Training Cave in the Japan/Korea version of the game.  The primary objective of the Training Grotto is to beat nine Goddess Ambers, but even if you cannot beat all nine you should go in and try to beat whatever you can for the rewards.  Continue working on your Training Grotto teams to make the most of your time in the Training Grotto.

Long-Game Grinding

The below are other areas that include free Diamonds or extra boosts to your CC.  Most of these will take you much longer to accomplish, so chip away at them on a periodic basis whenever you have free time after having completed your daily grind and event-based grinding activities.

Affection

Diamonds can be earned for using Heroes, having conversations with Heroes, and giving gifts to Heroes as shown in the Affection guide.

Affinity

Free Diamonds can be earned for Level 3 of Affinity for each Hero, as shown in the Affinity guide.  Level 5 of Affinity also unlocks a free Costume for each Hero, which helps to boost your overall CC.

Registered Recipes

Up to five recipes can be registered with Hawk in the Tavern at a given time.  For the best Gold gain, try to get five recipes up to Level 5 as early as possible.  You’ll likely want to work on the same recipes as you are already using for bonuses in various areas to be the most efficient when Cooking with Ban.  You can also maximize the amount of Gold gained by selling with Hawk by applying the 100-Day Bar Decoration

Titles

There are some Titles that grant extra boosts.  Most of these require doing the same task multiple times (for example, breaking chests in each of the villages), so you’ll want to whittle away at these whenever possible

Achievements

Achievements are a great place to earn free Diamonds by working towards repetitive tasks, similar to Titles.  Some of the fight-type Achievements are particularly of note as you can earn free Diamonds by completing specific tasks, such as winning a Boss Battle with a single hero in Normal, Hard, and Extreme mode.  You can kill two birds with one stone by completing this Boss Battle without a single Hero dying.

Equipment

Leveling up equipment to 5* Awakened will grant a free Diamond! This requires having sufficient gold, enhancement stones and equipment Awakening stones to be able to farm Diamonds in this way.

The best way to get this Achievement done is by using an AOE farming Hero and borrowing a Hero from a friend so that you can increase your CC while still only using one of your own Heroes.
