How to play - General
What is SM/SC Farm?.
These Skill Point builds are for players with limited game-time activity who want to make progress while maintaining their busy work/school/life schedule.
SM Farm offers relatively infrequent check-ins to level up heroes.
These builds will not effectively push / increase your MS. Sure, it might happen eventually, but it's best not to rely on it for that.
Your initial runs may fall very far short of your actual MS until your Artifacts are optimized for inactive play.
Gold source determines which SP Build you use.
If you own the Artifact Stone of the Valrunes, use the Chesterson gold build, not the Stealth build.
With SotV, your active gold will far out-class any Stealth Gold earnings. This allows more hero-level ups on each check-in, meaning you will clear more stages offline before your next check-in.
If you do not have SotV, use the Stealth Gold build. It will give you slightly faster run times since they do not need to wait for Chesterson spawns, but the Chesterson build will end up with a bit more power.
Basically, Stealth = faster but weaker, Chesterson = a little slower but much stronger. If you have SoTV, use Chester.
A fully on-line / active build will always push farther and reach your prestige stage faster than any SM Build.
Tournament & Equipment Info:
During the first run of a Tournament, Portar is disabled, so your initial tournament run will take a very long time.
Silent March is disabled until your first in-tournament prestige.
SM stage progression in tournaments is limited to the highest stage you have reached with active play during the tournament.
Owning the Mechanized Sword equipment set (Mythic) will slightly speed up your inactive progression speed & damage.
Owning the Sly Wolf equipment set (Legendary) will greatly increase your inactive progression speed.
Owning the Dark Predator equipment set (Mythic) will slightly increase your inactive damage, allowing for longer SM sessions between check-ins.
Owning the Shadow Disciple equipment set (Legendary) will slightly increase your inactive progression speed.
Important artifacts for the builds below include Elixer of Eden, Avian Feather, Earrings of Portara, Fagin's Grip, and Essence of Kitsune. Gold source Artifacts will vary by build and are noted below for each build set.
Silent March for Late-Game / High-SP Players:
As of 3.1, SM is still viable for those with limited play time and a lot of patience. SM run times increase much more noticeably than active play at higher stages.
This is because Ambush can't keep up with active builds speed advantage with Snap & Portar as Titan Count increases.
Most players notice their runs slowing down and becoming uncomfortable somewhere around stage 35-40k. It varies depending on your Artifacts and Intimidating Presence rank.
I generally suggest switching to an active build after or around stage 40k due to Titan Count and SM's progression speed.

When increasing SP levels towards a new build tier, invest in damage sources before Gold sources.

Progression - Chesterson: Open game, activate DS/HoM/WC/SC, defeat some Chestersons, level up Sword Master & heroes, then resume inactive play until your next check-in. Progression slows down the closer you get to 99% of MS. Prestige when you are no longer progressing.

Helmet - Sword Attack Damage or Main Hero Type Helm, choose strongest. Desired Effects:
- Ground Hero Damage > Boss Damage > Inactive Damage > Non-Boss Damage > Flying Hero Damage.

Basic Gamplay :
There is no need to unlock the HS skill.
After a Prestige, level up the Shadow Clone and Deadly Strike active skills to the maximum level you can afford after a prestige to increase your inactive damage.
For Chesterson Builds, level up your other skills by 4-5 ranks at a time if you have trouble defeating Chestersons during a check-in.
HELMET NOTE: If your strongest hero is a Flying Hero, prioritize Flying Hero Damage effect on Helmet instead.
