The most can be earned through archievements.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

K... Thanks.

Does it drop relatively frequent enough so that you'll be able to purchase one of the Jade only weapons in the last part of the game (do you think?... I know you're probably to there, but is it dropping enough so that you think you might be able to?) - or would I be better off using it to search for heroes, or something else?

The first 7 jade should go into an animal, I suggest either Diochan or Zhang Jue, both work fine against larger mobs and bosses.
I just did a battle and got two jade, so earning them is easy.
The drop rate seems higher when you perform good Ex attacks or very large combos, btw.

I have the pet menu option but I was given the horse & bronze eagle. I haven't seen anywhere I could buy different pets with jade. I'm only at stage 10, so maybe that's further along?

And is it really worth it to go back and do the extra battles? The return has been so low! Same with bonus battles; I'm hoping they get better as you progress.

I was pointing at the legendary animals.
You can find them in the skill menu.

LOL that's crazy- I never noticed that before!!! Thanks, I guess I just assumed it was higher skills. Lesson learned: always scroll to the end!

I love this game! It hits all the right notes for me. The more I think about it, this game plays like an evolved Samurai II (by Mad finger), with more streamlined controls and more diverse attacks. This game will remain on my phone and iPad 3 for a long time.

My only issue is that I'm having trouble timing the EX attacks. Would it be possible to add a more instructive tutorial that literally walks you through an EX move? As of now I only pull off maybe 1 out of 15 EX move attempts because my timing sucks.

Yeah, if anyone with ex tips and tricks could chime in, that would be great.

EX? Is this a skill? Or something to do with the circles that appear during combat? So many secrets lol
