Stage 1-10: Tips and FAQ

Duel Links Breaking News
Banlist update has been announced!
update 16/01/2017


Recommended deck

For Stage 1-10, I recommend you to use LIGHT monsters, high level monsters, and trap cards to get Mako Tsunami, Ishizu Ishtar, Odion to appear at the Gate earlier. You can easily win victories using such cards since Standard Duelists uses very weak decks at Stage 1-10.

What is "Duel World Duel"?

Duel World Duel is duels against Standard Duelists, Legendary Duelists, and the Vagabond. PVP duels do not count.

Which pack should I opne?

"The Ultimate Rising" will be the best one currently due to the versatility of cards contained.

Which card should I trade to complete one of Stage 7 missions?

Just trade cheap card that you can trade spending only Gold and save trader items for getting good cards near future. I strongly recommend you to trade Mythical Beast Cerberus, but you will not have enough trader items at this points.

Should I save Gate Keys?

It depends. Basically there are the two most efficient ways to spend Gate Key:

  • To have duels against Legendary Duelists Lvl 40 to get duel reward cards

  • To have duels against Legendary Duelists Lvl 10 to earn Gold or complete stage missions

I am stage 60 so exscuse me if I am wrong but I think it might want you to use the same spell card 3x so use a spell you have 3 copies of and see if that works.

How can I clear the stage 6 please
So, I got bored of playing this game in the higher ranks and decided to start over with a challenge. My data has been saved, so why not.

The challenge, grind your way up asap. You can hang at whatever stage you like it to be. Just don't buy any packs until your at 9.999 gems. The sr and urs you get won't be used and that free mokuba econ stays where it is, because you have to buy 4 packs to get it. Cards will be grinded from events, trader, leveling up and potential farms. After you reach the 9.999 goal, go nuts and build yourself a kog worthy deck, just don't follow the mass. Be creative and different. I'm doing this to show new players you can make it without netdecking.

I'm currently at stage 4 in GX. 4K deep. Running Judai's fusion time skill. I've almost unlocked yugi, next stop is going for those unions. If you got any questions, shoot.
I'll try to answer them, however, i'm only playing a few hours a day (if I already reach that amount).
Why I'm the Only One have (DM) in my Mission task ??
Whats that DM mean ?

DM means Duel Monsters. It means you must clear missions in the original Yu-Gi-Oh world. Whenever it says GX in the missions, it means GX world. Hope that helps.
I'm Stuck on Stage 10 Mission for 1 week now!
( Win a Duel World(DM) Duel with at least 2000 LP remaining.)
I Always Make the Goal But it Won't Level me Up to Stage 11 ??

Try collecting the items at the mission box. If it says cleared or completed tap on the price so collect.
