[GUIDE] EXOS Heroes Chapter 12: Inherited Power — How to beat all episodes

To those of you new to Exos Heroes, unlike many mobile gacha games, the story mode is one of the most rewarding experiences of playing the game. On release, the story was limited to Chapter 10. However, with every major update, a new chapter has been released to introduce new heroes in the game as you continue Zeon’s journey. Chapter 12 introduces us to the nation of Brunn and the heroes Dorka, Neomi, and Kylock.

 

Similar to Chapter 11, you will have Schmid as a playable character who provides solid light damage if you are lacking in that element. If you are new to the game, you may struggle to progress through the story if you are not able to meet the minimum “Easy” CP for each episode. That said, I highly recommend having your team above 2,205,000 CP to clear the entire Chapter 12 with no issues. In addition, you should only have a team of nature, machine, and light elements to aid in breaking the enemies’ guard stones for even easier completion.

 

Don’t worry, this guide won’t spill details of the story, only provide the battle details for each episode to help those looking for 100% completion for the free rewards. Let's first look at the free rewards you can receive:

 

Xes reward for total star completions

 

 

To all the completists out there, completing each episode’s mission for 3 stars will reward you with a total of 700 free Xes. Each episode has different requirements for a 3 star completion, but it’s not required to complete the stage. If you have difficulty completing an episode, I recommend just completing the stage then coming back when you make more progress on your account. Here are the breakdown of Xes rewards based on stars obtained:

 

  1. Reward for 7 Stars — 100 Xes
  2. Rewards for 19 Stars — 250 Xes
  3. Rewards for 39 Stars — 350 Xes

 

Challenge mission rewards from completing Chapter 12

 

 

In addition to receiving free Xes from how many stars you obtained, you will also get free Xes from the corresponding Challenge Mission for each episode you complete. Challenge missions only require you to complete the stage and nothing else, so it’s the easiest way to get free Xes in this game. Although small, free Xes is always a win for all players. Here is a breakdown of the rewards for completing all 13 episodes of Chapter 12:

 

  1. Xes — 220
  2. Rank 1 Legendary Gloves — Physical
  3. Rank 1 Legendary Boots — Physical

 

EXOS Heroes Chapter 12: Episode walkthrough

 

Episode 1: Two-faced Hyena

This is a story only episode.


Episode 2: Master of Resuscitation

This is a story only episode.

 

Episode 3: Hyena Attack 1

Easy CP Requirement — 1,988,971

Missions:

  1. All survived
  2. Clear in 90 turns
  3. Break 5 times
  4. Hit limit 45

First Round:

  1. 3x Brunn Special Swordsman — 5846 HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 

Second Round:

  1. Brunn Special Sniper — 4600 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  2. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6470 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  3. Brunn Special Support — 7300 HP
    Guard Stones — 2 Light

Third Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Swordsman — 5846 HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. 3x Brunn Special Shaman — 5638 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light 

 

This is the first playable episode in Chapter 12 and nothing crazy here in terms of difficulty. To summarize this stage without spilling details on the actual story, after the initial cut scene, you face three waves of enemy Brunn soldiers. If you meet the minimum CP for easy, then you should beat this with no issue. If you are looking to clear all the missions for 3-star completion I recommend using normal attacks if your team is too strong. Also, DO NOT auto-battle as Schmid will clear entire waves alone. 


Episode 4: Hyena Attack 2 

Easy CP Requirement — 2,012,968

Missions:

  1. All survived
  2. Clear in 90 turns
  3. Break 5 times
  4. Hit limit 45

First Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Shaman — 5638 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light 
  2. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6470 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 

Second Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Support — 7300 HP
    Guard Stones — 2 Light
  2. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6470 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  3. 2x Brunn Special Scout — 5846 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature

Third Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Sniper — 4600 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature
  2. 2x Brunn Special Scout — 5846 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  3. Brunn Special Shaman — 5638 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light 

 

This stage is simply a rehash of episode 3, a very easy stage to clear if you meet the CP requirement. I also recommend manualing normal attacks if you are attempting a 3-star completion.

 

Episode 5: Wounded Beast

Easy CP Requirement — 2,036,966

Missions:

  1. All survived
  2. Clear in 90 turns
  3. Break 5 times
  4. Hit limit 45

First Round:

  1. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6470 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. 2x Brunn Special Support — 7300 HP
    Guard Stones — 2 Light

Second Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Swordsman — 5846 HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. 2x Brunn Special Shieldman — 6470 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature
  3. Brunn Special Scout — 5846 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 

Third Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Sniper — 4600 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature
  2. Brunn Special Scout — 5846 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  3. 2x Brunn Special Shieldman — 6470 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature

 

Similar to the previous two stages, this stage consists of THREE rounds of fairly easy battles against Brunn soldiers. Again, do not auto battle here if you want a 3-star completion. Completing this stage will reward a Hot Deal for ranked armor and abrasives as seen below. For high spenders, this is a decent value for ranked armor. 

 

Completing Episode 5 will offer a limited Hot Deal for Ranked Armor. High Spenders may find value in this considering the difficulty in obtaining ranked armor. 

 

Episode 6: Smiling Reaper

Easy CP Requirement — 2,060,963

Missions:

  1. All survived
  2. Clear in 90 turns
  3. Break 6 times
  4. Hit limit 45

First Round:

  1. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6470 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. 2x Brunn Special Sniper — 4600 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature

Second Round:

  1. 3x Brunn Special Support — 7300 HP
    Guard Stones — 2 Light
  2. 2x Brunn Special Scout — 5846 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 

Third Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Swordsman — 5846 HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. Brunn Special Scout — 5846 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  3. 2x Brunn Special Shaman — 5638 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light 

 

Episode 7: Awaken

Easy CP Requirement — 2,084,961

Missions:

  1. All survived
  2. Clear in 90 turns
  3. Break 8 times
  4. Hit limit 45
  5. Break Kylock

First Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Swordsman — 5897 HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. Brunn Special Shieldman — 657 HP28
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  3. 2x Brunn Special Support — 7368 HP
    Guard Stones — 2 Light

Second Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Sniper — 4636 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature
  2. 2x Brunn Special Scout — 5897 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  3. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6528 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 

Third Round (Boss Kylock):

  1. 2x Brunn Special Shieldman — 6528 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. 2x Brunn Special Shaman — 5638 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light
  3. Kylock — 46368 HP, 2840 Attack, 2616 Defens
    Buffs — Status Effect Immunity, Increase Defense, Increase Block, Increase Attack
    First 6 Guard Stones — 4 Nature, 1 Machine, 1 Light
    Second 4 Guard Stones — 3 Nature, 1 Light

 

This episode is the first boss fight against Kylock. You will see that the normal waves have increased HP and overall stats so they are a bit more difficult. However, if you cleared the last few stages with ease, this episode should be no issue. Kylock does have two sets of guard stones like other boss battles. If you are attempting this at a much higher CP than the required “Easy” minimum, then try not to use active skills against him or you will kill him too fast. 

 

Episode 8: Baton Touch

Easy CP Requirement — 2,108,958

Missions:

  1. All survived
  2. Clear in 90 turns
  3. Break 6 times
  4. Hit limit 45

First Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Scout — 5948 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  2. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6587 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 

Second Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Swordsman — 5948HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. 2x Brunn Special Shaman — 5737 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light
  3. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6587 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 

Third Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Support — 7436 HP
    Guard Stones — 2 Light
  2. Brunn Special Shaman — 5737 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light
  3. 2x Brunn Special Shieldman — 6587 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 

 

This episode is another three rounds of trash waves. However, the stats have increased again from the previous episode and you will not have Schmid to carry you if he’s been your main damage dealer thus far. There is nothing new here, bring the same nature, machine, and light elemental heroes and you should be fine as long as you meet the minimum CP. Again, I recommend manual play here and normal attacks if you are looking for a 3-star completion. 

 

Episode 9: Limits of a Human

Easy CP Requirement — 2,132,955

Missions:

  1. All survived
  2. Clear in 90 turns
  3. Break 6 times
  4. Hit limit 45

First Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Swordsman — 5948HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6587 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature

Second Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Scout — 5948 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  2. Brunn Special Shaman — 5737 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light
  3. 2x Brunn Special Shieldman — 6587 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 

Third Round:

  1. 4x 2x Brunn Special Sniper — 4675 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature
  2. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6587 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 

 

Similar to Episode 8, Schmid will not be part of your team. He will actually not be playable for the remainder of Chapter 12, so if you were depending on him as your main damage I recommend leveling and gearing your heroes as you were likely lower than the required CP for Easy. Stats have remained the same here, so enemies will not be harder than the previous stage. I also recommend using manual mode and normal attacks here for a 3-star clear. 


Episode 10: Turf War

Easy CP Requirement — 2,156,953

Missions:

  1. All survived
  2. Clear in 90 turns
  3. Break 6 times
  4. Hit limit 45
  5. Use a Chaos type

First Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Shaman — 5737 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light
  2. 3x Brunn Special Shieldman — 6587 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 

Second Round:

  1. Brunn Special Scout — 5948 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  2. b2x Brunn Special Swordsman — 5948HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  3. 2x Brunn Special Support — 7436 HP
    Guard Stones — 2 Light

Third Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Sniper — 4675 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature
  2. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6587 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature
  3. 2x Brunn Special Shaman — 5737 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light

 

The only difference in this episode from the previous two is the requirement for a Chaos type in the mission goals. Aside from that, follow the same strategy as previous stages and you should be fine here. 

 

Episode 11: Turf War II

Easy CP Requirement — 2,180,950

Missions:

  1. All survived
  2. Clear in 90 turns
  3. Break 6 times
  4. Hit limit 45

First Round:

  1. Brunn Special Scout — 5948 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  2. 4x Brunn Special Swordsman — 5948HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature

Second Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Shieldman — 6587 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. 2x Brunn Special Swordsman — 5948HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  3. 2x Brunn Special Shaman — 5737 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light

Third Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Sniper — 4675 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature
  2. 2x Brunn Special Scout — 5948 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  3. Brunn Special Shaman — 5737 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light

 

Episode 11 is another easy stage to complete, no new enemies here. Note the requirement for a front-row emphasized formation if you are attempting 3-star completion here. Be sure to bring a nature, machine, and light element on your team and you should clear this with no issues if you meet the minimum CP. 

 

Episode 12: Cause and Reason

Easy CP Requirement — 2,204,948

Missions:

  1. All survived
  2. Clear in 90 turns
  3. Break 10 times
  4. Hit limit 45
  5. Break Mahar

First Round:

  1. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6644 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  2. 2x Brunn Special Swordsman — 6001 HP 
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 
  3. 2x Brunn Special Shaman — 5787 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light

Second Round:

  1. 2x Brunn Special Scout — 6001 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  2. Brunn Special Shieldman — 6644 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 3 Nature 

Third Round (Boss Mahar):

  1. 2x Brunn Special Scout — 6001 HP
    Guard Stones — 6 Nature 
  2. 2x Brunn Special Shaman — 5787 HP
    Guard Stones — 3 Machine, 2 Light
  3. Mahar — 178,920 HP, 2253 Attack, 4491 Defense
    Buffs — Status Effect Immunity, Increased Attack
    First 6 Guard Stones — 4 Nature, 1 Machine, 1 Light
    Second 4 Guard Stones — 3 Nature, 1 Machine

 

This stage is the final playable stage of Chapter 12 and the hardest. Notice the increase in stats for the normal waves of enemies. In addition, there is the boss battle against Mahar who is a fairly strong defense type. He does have high HP here, so if you bring a Banga type fatecore you can focus on Mahar first to land a level 3 Heart Strike and AOE burn the additional enemies without targeting them.

 

In addition, he does have two sets of guard stones like other Story Mode bosses, so note the required elements if you are attempting 3-stars here. While not that much difficult from other stages, you should bring a strong tank and healer for safety here in case your CP is slightly below the required minimum. After completing this stage you will receive a limited Hot Deal for another ranked armor piece with abrasives. Spenders should consider this if you are low on ranked gear. See the screenshot below for details.

 

After completing episode 12, you will receive another Hot Deal for ranked armor. This is limited so consider investing if you don’t mind spending.

 

Episode 13: Public Enemy

This is a story only episode.

 

That concludes our Chapter 12 guide! As mentioned earlier, obtaining a 3 star completion is not required to complete the story mode, but why pass up on free Xes? I hope the info and tips provided in this guide will help you with your 100% completion, please continue to follow the Inven Global site for all Exos Heroes related content.
