In order to obtain a Guardian, you will first need to collect them through crystal rewards, purchase them with in-game currency, or earn them as a unique reward for your progress. After the first time you fulfill one of these requirements for a particular Guardian, any additional fulfilments will convert the Guardian into duplicate rewards.
What Do I Get When I Duplicate a Guardian?
When earning a duplicate Guardian, that character will be converted into:
- An amount of Guardian shards determined by the duplicate’s star rating.
- If you earn enough Guardian shards, you may also obtain an additional star for that Guardian.
- A handful of Stardust.
Stardust collected from duplicating Guardians can be used in the Stardust store to purchase unique rewards and items.
Note: You do not gain additional copies of a Guardian when duplicating them. Every time you earn enough Guardian shards to gain a star, the amount of Guardian shards required for that Guardian’s next star increases.
