Lately we've been fielding some questions about gathering Stamina, so we thought we'd put together a reference guide in case it helps anyone find what they need a little faster. LCN is a big game and this list isn't exhaustive, but we think we've covered the basics pretty well.
Note: this was written with web-users in mind. If you're on mobile some of the pathways will probably be different.
Ask your Mob for Stamina Boosts
Players in LCN can send one another boosts of Stamina and Energy. You can do this by heading to the MOB section of your game and click the BOOSTS tab. If you have already accepted Stamina or Energy Boosts from your Mobsters and haven’t yet used them, you’ll see them listed on this page.
Just click the Use button to activate one, and 75% of your Stamina pool will be refilled in Viking Clan/Pirate Clan and 100% of your Stamina in Mob Wars/Zombie Slayer! You can store up to 5 Stamina boosts on this page, although you can only use them once every 22 hours.
If you don’t yet have any Stamina Boosts stored, you can put out a general call for Stamina to your Mob. At the top of the Stamina Boosts section, click the Ask for Stamina Boosts button. This will post your request to the Social Feed of all the players in your Mob. If you are playing on Facebook, you will also have to the option to share the post to your Facebook wall. If you don’t want to share it to Facebook, simply click Cancel.
When another player sends you a Boost, you will have to Accept it before it will appear in your Boosts page. A notification will appear in your Mobster Alerts whenever you have a Pending Boost, so don’t forget to check it! Just click the Accept Stamina Boost button add it to your Boosts Page.
Whenever you accept a Boost you’ll also be offered the option to return the favor by sending a Boost back. This costs you nothing, and also earns you Daily Gamer Points, so feel free to send Boosts to whoever needs them!
Pro Tip: You don’t have to wait until your Stamina is completely empty before claiming a boost! Boosts can actually buff your Stamina past your normal maximum, so no points will be lost even if you choose to use a Boost before depleting your Stamina pool.
Claim your Daily Reward
Every day you log into the game, you can claim a Daily Reward of Stamina or Energy. The game keeps a rough count of how many days in a row you log in and play, and the reward becomes greater the more days in a row you play (up to a max of 7 days in a row).
To claim your Daily Reward, go to your HOME page and select DAILY REWARD from the menu on the left. In the Daily Reward Screen you can collect any rewards that have accumulated, and change the types of rewards that will accumulate from now on.
Earn XP and Level Up
Any time you reach a new level, you will be awarded with 50 Stamina for your pool. (If your Max Stamina is lower than 50, it’ll simply refill you to your Max).
Nearly every action in the game awards XP, so if you’re out of Stamina and want to keep Fighting, take a look at what else you can do that might tip you over the next level threshold, such as :
- Check your BOSSES page for any completed Bosses you can collect the Rewards for
- Do Challenges like the Calendar or Turf War Challenges
- Check your Lottery Tickets (Go to GODFATHER > THE LOTTERY)
- Do Jobs
- Help your Friends -- Scan your Social Feed for requests you can fill.
- Join the Arena (you get XP just for signing up)
Use your Favor Points on a Refill
If you’re all out of Boosts, you can use your Favor Points (FP) to buy a Stamina Refill. Just pop over to the Godfather page and selectENERGY/HEALTH/STAM./CASH from the menu on the left. A Stamina Refill costs 10 FP.
Speed up your Stamina Regeneration
Another way to send more Stamina your way is by increasing the rate at which your Stamina refills slowly over time.
Earning certain Achievements from the General category will reduce the number of seconds it takes to regenerate Stamina points, such as the Bulletproof Achievement for upping your Max Stamina, or the Movin' On Up Achievements for reaching certain levels.
Upgrading to a new character is another way you can reduce Stamina regen time. Some characters, such as the Warlord or the Vigilante, regenerate Stamina faster than others. You can change by going to your PROFILE page and clicking the Select Character button.
Maximize your Damage
Another strategy is make sure the Stamina you spend is going as far as possible, by taking advantage of any bonuses that increase your power in Fights.
Keep an eye on your Social Feed for Adrenaline Boosts. Accepting an Adrenaline Boost will increase your Attack for a short time. Don’t forget, you can send them to other Mobsters, too!
Make sure your Elite Mobster positions are filled. The Heavy and Bruiser roles increase your Defense and Attack power by 5% when active, so check your Profile page regularly and Publish any empty spots to your feed!
Optimize your inventory! Review your Loadout and make sure your very best items are equipped directly to your character. You can view and update your loadout by going to PROFILE > ARMING.
Check that all your Mobsters are doing as much damage as possible when you Fight. If you have more Mob than you have items, head over to the STOCKPILE and spend some of your well-earned Cash on some items for them to carry. You can quickly see if you’ve got empty-handed Mobsters by going to the FIGHT page and clicking the blue Fighting Tips information link.
Pro-Tip: You might think a way to deal the most damage possible is by fighting weaker opponents, but not so fast! The amount of Damage you deal is affected by a lot of different variables, including your own Max Health and the Max Health of your opponent. Simply put, if you are spending your Stamina beating up on a player with a lower Maximum Health Stat than you, you will likely inflict less damage than if you fought someone with an equal or better Max Health. Pick on someone your own size to get the biggest bang for your buck.
