Tap Titans 2 - A beginner's guide for new players

This is one of the best Tap Titans 2 guides out there. In the same words begin about the game, but the rest of the article is guide. Enjoy!)

Sword master

The main character is the Sword Master. You have to tap the screen to damage the titans in front of you. From level 10 and every 20 levels thereafter, he receives a milestone bonus that is multiplied by his tap damage. In the beginning, your sword master will be the main source of damage. However, if you have the Master's Sword artifact or Maya's Hero Skill level 1000 or higher (we'll get to that later), leveling the Swordmaster is completely unnecessary, except to bring him up to 500 (so you get prestige, which we'll get to later) .

Active skills

A new type of skill system is introduced in this game. Skills still have their own individual cooldowns, but you also need mana to use them. When using a skill, the amount of mana that is reduced is indicated by the number near the skill. Mana regenerates slowly over time. New players start at the rate of 2 mana per minute. There are ways to increase mana regeneration through a pet (Fluffers), the Witcher skill tree (Limit Break), hero skills, and an artifact (Mystic Staff).


You can hire heroes who will then attack automatically. Heroes scale similarly to the Swordmaster, instead of having skills that increase their own damage, they initially get damage multipliers every 20 levels, starting with 10. You get these multipliers for as long as you level them up, but the multipliers are more spread out the higher you get (e.g. every 30 levels, then 40, etc.) Heroes have attack types. There are melee, spell and ranged heroes and area types, flying and ground. There are many multipliers for the damage of a single type of hero. Usually, you'll only be using what is optimal for the hero just before your last hero, and later for your last hero when the hero costs are further apart. However, you will want to level all heroes regardless of their type as they will have certain skills. You can buy these when you reach a certain level (20, 60, 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, and 6000). All of the hero's abilities affect you globally. You can give Gold Multipliers, Damage Multipliers, Extra Chesteron, and Critical Chance and Damage for a specific hero type. Most of the skills are worth getting, but some are better than others. Heroes are not attacked and therefore do not die.

Hero weapons

  • Weapons and weapon sets, like pets, are earned over time through tournaments, daily rewards, purchases in the shop, and opening chests. Every full set that you complete adds a strong compounding bonus, and so completing sets is very important. Once again you have to pray to RNGesus as the weapons you receive are random. (Except for the Fortune weapons, which give you a weapon you don't already have, or when you have them all, a weapon you have the least of). Again: collect your dailies, try your best in tournaments and buy one or the other in the shop.
  • If you have the weapon for a hero, the skills you get at certain levels are free and are also automatically obtained when the hero reaches that level. That's one less click you have to make when leveling up a hero. This only applies to the first weapon you get for each hero, so complete this first full set ASAP.


Equipment plays an important role in TT2. Not only does it change the appearance of your character, but you also get bonuses for different sources of damage, depending on the type. The equipment scales according to the max stage you have reached. The equipment will drop once you defeat the level 15 boss, and then every 20 levels thereafter. However, it will only fall the first time you defeat these bosses. They will have blue horsepower bars when dropping equipment1. To get more gear, you can get some by farming during your runs. You will be dropped by random bosses between 80% and 99% of your max level. A maximum of 5 equipment drops per Prestige are available (lower with lower MS), with a maximum of 20 farmed equipment per day. Equipment dropped by bosses will be hurled by them and will fall down on your swordmaster's right side. A mini light beam above the equipment shows you where it is. Clicking on it will give you a random gear, the level of which is determined by your max level.

  • Shop gear is one of the most random, luck-based parts of the game. It is not recommended to buy equipment from the shop unless you have reached the current MS (Max Stage) as this is where you will get the best level for your diamonds. And even then, equipment should only be purchased if it completes a set or is part of a set, you have diamonds left over, or the equipment is significantly stronger than your current piece. (Note: x10 above your current gear is still pretty average). Shop-bought equipment is always at the best possible level for your MS, its stats include all artifact traits, and even drops usually won't go that high.
  • Secondary effects With 2.7 we got secondary effects on items. There is currently no way to reroll effects or upgrade equipment you already own, so it is recommended that you keep both the item with the best primary stats and the item with the best secondary effects.
  • If this is the same item, consider yourself lucky. Mythic items have 3 secondary slots, Legendaries 2, Rares and Event items 1, and Commons have none. If you are comparing two items and one has a better major stat with weaker secondary effects and the second has better secondary effects with a weaker major stat, almost 90% of the time it is best to take the higher major stat.
  • The portar spawn chance is considered to be one of the best secondary slash effects one can have. Make sure you always have a slash available with this effect, even if it's not for the type of damage you're using to speed up the early stages of your runs when you don't need the damage boost from your main slash. Switch back to your main slash later when you need more damage to kill titans.
  • Daily equipment drops (20 per day). With 4 runs per day you will get 5 equipment drops ranging from 80% -99% of your MS. (For example, if your MS is 1000, you'll get your 5 drops anywhere between 800 and 990). Stack your 5 pieces of equipment per run and collect them at the start of the next run to ensure the next 5 spawn for that run. When pushing, the best thing to do is to stack as many pieces of gear as possible and only pick them up after you've reached your prestige on your new MS, to make sure the items spawn at the highest possible levels. Nothing hurts more than getting your gear up after a 200 level push and getting a level 300 item when it could have been 350.
  • Mythic Gear sells for 100 Diamonds, Legendary Gear for 25 Diamonds, Rare Gear for 5, Commons and Event for 1. So sell those extra pieces of gear that you don't need or when one part becomes obsolete by another. NOTE: Some event items such as the Valentine's Sword and Helmet are Legendary or Rare, even though they have Event Status. That doesn't happen often, but there are a few such items.


From level 8, as soon as you kill the last non-boss Titan, a cut scene will appear. A pet named Nova is held captive in a cage by a titan named Kage. This Titan will only appear this once. Pets are very important and each and every one of them is useful. Pets will appear next to your swordmaster and if you tap 20 times he will charge them to attack a titan. The attack is a multiple of your Tap Damage and Crit Damage. Once you reach 200 total pet levels, your pets will start attacking on their own every 2 seconds or so.

For every 500 total pet levels, you'll get +1 for skipping pet splashes.

Pets offer active and passive bonuses. Active bonuses are used when you have selected your pet and it becomes your main pet. The other pets will receive passive bonuses once they reach level 5. You should first buy all pets in the shop until they are at least level 5 in order for you to receive a small passive bonus. Next up, you should buy handy pets until they reach level 100. A general consensus is that Fluffers, All Gold (Bubbles and Polly), and All Damage (Nova and Demos) in particular are worth buying, although you can also get All Hero Damage for a Clan Ship build or Tap Damage for a Pet- May consider build. The other pets just don't give you enough bonuses to be worth your while. When you reach level 100 on all pets, you will receive 100% active bonuses. In this case, it no longer matters which pet you use as the main animal. You can consider it cosmetic at this point. After level 100, your pets will receive a multiplicative bonus on their damage / gold / mana regeneration bonus every 50 levels. Fluffers ends at 500, the others at 5,000.

Pets are mainly obtained through the egg timer, which automatically releases an egg every 4 hours. You can stack a total of two pets before the timer stops. You can also buy pets from the shop for the cost of diamonds and also get them from tournaments depending on how high you can go.


Artifacts are items obtained from relics. They are powerful items that can change the game, like increasing the amount of gold dropped by titans or making skills cost less mana. The animal list created by / u / lemmingllama will help you get information about the various arts and the various usefulnesses of the artifact.


Perks are an instant or temporary buff that are obtained from Tournaments, Daily Rewards, the Fat Fairy, or purchasing them in the Bear Shop. In the beginning, before you do your first prestige, you will be given a power of swiping perk for free. Make use of it as soon as you get it to make your game a little easier. This will last for 12 hours. Perk descriptions are listed in the Sword tab at the bottom left of the screen.


Clans are a very important part of TT2 where you can join a group of up to 50 players. The option to join or create a clan will appear once you reach level 25. Or you can go to the “Sword Master” tab and choose the “Join a Clan” option, which you can join immediately without waiting until you reach level 25. As soon as you join a clan, a ship will appear on your screen.
This ship makes multiples of your hero DPS (fires one shot) every 8 seconds. Joining a clan is incredibly important as this ship will help you immensely against bosses. There is also a clan boss that you attack as a clan. You can fight him for 30 seconds every hour, or more often as you spend diamonds.

The damage you do is equal to the highest level you prestigious or 50, whichever is more. With each subsequent attack you get a damage multiplier that you can use to inflict even more damage on the boss. Once you've defeated a clan boss, your clan damage multiplier and advanced starting level (the level you start at after prestige) will increase, and a new boss will spawn after 6 hours. The Clan Damage Multiplier gives you a bonus to all damage that is pretty significant, but a high Advanced Start level is even stronger. It is important to help kill the clan bosses as much as you can.

Bear shop

The shop has six items that you can purchase with diamonds and they reset daily. It won't become available until you reach level 8. Most of the time it will be selling pets that you can purchase a few tiers from at a time. Most of your diamonds should be spent on buying pets, as these are very important.

Equipment will sometimes appear in some of the 6 slots. Equipment should only be purchased from the shop if it helps you complete your equipment set. Otherwise it is never worth buying equipment from the shop. This is because you can go over your max level and thus get more gear via farming and the chances are that you will end up with a rare item that beats the 800 diamond gear from the store anyway.

Fairy children and fat fairy

Every two minutes a fairy or group of fairies flies across the screen several times before disappearing on the sides. These will drop gold and active skills, which will be activated automatically. Sometimes there are advertisers who give an even bigger bonus if you decide to watch the advertisements.

Advertising fairies only drop certain, usually quite large, bonuses. These are gold cost reduction1, activate all skills2, mana potion3, 10 diamonds4 and a large gold bonus.

Then there is the fat fairy. If you click them, you will get a free perk. The fat fairy flies by once a day and drops a present for you.


There is a boss titan named “Portar”. If you kill him you will go up 50 steps, unless you are less than 50 steps away from your MS, then he will only take you up to the MS. It cannot appear above your MS and if you do not kill it the portar will despawn.

In tournaments, Portar works in a similar way to Silent March. Portar do not spawn in the first tournament run. After you have completed your first run of the tournament, Portar will spawn up to the level shown in the tournament window.

You can increase the chance that Portar will spawn with the secondary effects “Portar Chance” and “All Probabilities” (varying% and multipliers) on the Slash equipment, the artifact “Boots of Hermes” (max. 4%) and the artifact Increase the “lucky foot of Al-mi'raj” (max. X1.1).


The latest addition to the special titanium family is Snap. Unlike Portar, Snap is a non-boss titan. Killing a Snap in combat will remove half of your non-boss Titans per level. Remember that if you had 1 Titan per stage, Snap would reduce that to 0 and you would go straight to the boss.

Snap cannot spawn on a stage that has already been affected by a previous Snap, and its effect lasts for 50 stages.

Snap was released in version 2.9.


Tournaments are competitions that take place on Sundays and Wednesdays in which you are matched with a few up to 200 players (depending on how high your MS is, less for higher MS) with a similar max potential level (there is an algorithm who decides this, it is kept secret by the developers). Tournaments are a very important part of progression in TT2 as you get rewards just by participating. In addition, these rewards cannot be farmed like relics. Your ultimate goal is to aim for Rank 1 as the undisputed champion. There are players on the subreddit and community discord who are happy to help if you want to know how to do your best in a tournament. Don't hesitate to ask any questions!

Skill tree guide

The tree is divided into 4 sections.

  • Knight (Red) (Tap)
  • Warlord (Yellow) (Hero)
  • Warlock (Blue) (Mana / Skill)
  • Rogue (Green) (Inactive)

The skill tree gives different effects to your pets, heroes, skills and your character. From level 50, you will receive one skill point every 50 levels. At levels 50, 550, and every 500 levels thereafter, you will get an additional skill point instantly, but for the rest you will need to get prestigious to get them once you reach a level that is a multiple of 50. As with equipment, you will only receive a skill point the first time you reach this level.

If you want to make changes to your skill tree, you will have to pay a fee of diamonds to change it (the exception is if Game Hive makes changes to the skill tree, in which case the skill tree will be forcibly reset free of charge). For every Skill Point you have, 2 diamonds are added to the reset cost. For non-VIP players, these reset costs are a maximum of 800 diamonds (only 200 diamonds for VIP players).

Other ways to get Skill Points are:

As a tournament reward. From Week 2 of the Weekly Rewards. From the bear shop. (Not currently available for purchase) From the $ 5 USD bundle available for purchase in the Bear Shop.

  • You can build your tree without hitting “Apply” and carving it in stone, i. H. You can play around and see what you can afford without actually having to spend the skill points. The “Stats” button in the Skills Tree reflects the changes you are making in the tree. Use this to your advantage and play around a little to see what you can achieve with your current number of skill points.
  • I would also suggest that you check out General Discord or your clan mates for help in understanding each skill better instead of just trying them out and then resetting many times and wasting a lot of diamonds. There's a whole build channel on the community discord that talks about builds, and the players there really know their stuff. Make use of the wealth of knowledge that surrounds you.
  • Many others have reported on builds and because of the patches in the game the meta is constantly changing so I recommend checking these sources for information on builds and the strongest / most efficient builds currently available.
