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 rarity star for that Guardian.
- A handful of Ranged, Support, Tank, or Melee Stardust depending on the tole of the duplicated Guardian.
Stardust collected from duplicating Guardians can be used in the Stardust store to purchase unique rewards and items. Each type of Stardust is its own separate currency and cannot be combined to make a purchase in the Stardust store.
Note: You do not gain additional copies of a Guardian when duplicating them. Every time you earn enough Guardian shards to gain a rarity star, the amount of Guardian shards required for that Guardian’s next rarity star increases.
