Tips & Tricks: Quick Gear Swap

Rate this Entry
It's time for another Tips & Tricks and this time I will show you how to do a quick gear swap. I know many of you already knows how to do this, but if there's someone who don't know how to do, it's worth showing.

Quick gear swap let's you swap your gear quickly while running away from your opponent. Basically, it is really simple and could count in handy in a lot of situations.

Before we start, you have to enable "Tap to move" in the settings. This is default set to true but if you have disabled it for some reason, it is now time to activate it again. To activate "Tap to move", go to Settings > Game Options I and toggle the "Tap to move" checkbox. Press the button below to see how the settings screen looks like:

This setting let's you tap anywhere on the screen and your character will run there. This method of moving your character is not better than the virtual joystick, but within this trick it's necessary. This is actually the only reason why I'm having it activated.

So what should you do now? The basics of this trick is to tap on the ground far away from your opponent so you start to run away. As soon as you done that, quickly go to your inventory and change the preset. As you understand this will only work between presets, so make sure you have some good ones setup. If you need help with your presets I've created a guide of mine here: Tips & Tricks: Gear presets (Level 15 Warrior).

Flow chart

This is the parts you have to do in this specific order:

  1. Tap on the ground to run away. A cross will be placed on the ground and your character will automatically run there.
  2. Tap your avatar in upper left corner to display the menu.
  3. Navigate to your inventory by pressing the Bag icon.
  4. Tap the presets button in the upper left corner of you inventory screen.
  5. Select the preset (Loadout) you want to use.
  6. Tap outside the Loadout box to close it (I suggest you to tap in the upper left corner).
  7. Tap the "Back" button in the upper left corner to exit your inventory and get back into the game.

If you do this quick enough, you will be done before your character has reached the cross you placed on the ground and hasn't stopped yet. If you has stopped you have to either put the cross further away or learn how to do the swap faster until next time. One tick I do to be as fast as possible is to use my left hand to enter and leave the inventory and my right hand to select the correct preset from the loadout list. This requires you to play on a touch based device. In my case I'm playing on an iPad Mini which seems to be the best device to play Pocket Legends on in my opinion.
