Class Token Economy

  • Class Tokens are a new currency added to the game on June 28, 2016 (in update 1.10).
  • How do I get Class Tokens?
    1. Rejecting a Survivor from a Radio Call, or…
    2. Retiring a Survivor from your current roster.
    3. OldGoth said on the forum that Class Tokens will be available from other sources, and they will give the details “later.”
  • What do I spend Class Tokens on?
    1. Leveling up Survivor Traits, then…
    2. Promoting Survivors to the their next Prestige Level (Star Level).
  • Class Tokens are CLASS SPECIFIC, meaning if you retire/reject a Scout Survivor, you only get tokens to use for upgrading other Scout Survivors.

  • Where can I see how many Class Tokens I have for a specific Class?
    • You can see how many Tokens you have by going to a Survivor’s Profile. You will see the Class Tokens displayed as the first # listed above “Upgrade Trait” (picture below).
    • Alternatively, you can click the Survivors tab on the left side of your home screen, then click on the Class of Survivor and the # of Class Tokens will be shown on the left side of the screen. Class Tokens.PNG

  • Before you can “Promote” a Survivor to the next Prestige Level (Star Level), you must first upgrade all of their Traits to the Maximum Levels for their Prestige Level (Star Level) (to promote an Epic to Legendary, you must first upgrade all of their Traits to level 4.)

  • Each Survivor Prestige Level (Star Level) has the same # of Traits as their Prestige Level (Star Level), and those Traits can all be upgraded to the same level as their Prestige Level (Star Level).
    • Example 1: An Epic Survivor is also a 4 Star Survivor. They will have 4 Traits, all upgradeable to Level 4.
    • Example 2: A 3-Star, Rare Survivor will have 3 Traits upgradeable to Level 3.
    • Every upgrade costs the same within a Survivor Tier (All Epic Upgrades will cost 120 Tokens.) The promotion cost is also the same.

  • Traits seem to upgrade from the bottom up, as you can see in the picture, the bottom Trait (Lucky) has the green arrows, indicating it will be the Trait to be upgraded. You can not change the Trait you want to upgrade.

  • Retiring your current Survivors, or Rejecting new Survivors give the same # of Tokens for the same Prestige Level (Star Level), regardless of level.
    • Legendary (5 Star): 256 Tokens
    • Epic (4 Star): 128 Tokens
    • Rare (3 Star): 32 Tokens
    • Uncommon (2 Star): 8 Tokens
    • Common (1 Star): 2 Tokens

  • You do get more tokens back (than listed above) when you retire a Survivor that you’ve invested Tokens in. You get back about 25% of the tokens you’ve invested.
    • Legendary Survivor
      • 1 Upgrade: 318 Tokens Retire Value
    • Epic Survivor:
      • 2 Upgrades: 188 Tokens Retire Value
    • Uncommon Survivor after promotion: 9 Token Retire Value

  • Tip has been removed since there was a change to retire value of Uncommon Survivors promoted from Common. 

  • For the “Actual” Cost of upgrading Survivors, I realize that you probably won’t be retiring Survivors of the same Prestige Level (Star Level). It’s just a guideline. Here’s the math on how many Survivors of a Prestige Level are equivalent to other Prestige Levels:
    • Legendary:
      • 1 Legendary = 2 Epics
      • 1 Legendary =  8 Rares
      • 1 Legendary = 32 Uncommon
      • 1 Legendary = 128 Common
    • Epic:
      • 1 Epic = 4 Rares
      • 1 Epic = 16 Uncommon
      • 1 Epic = 64Commons
    • Rare:
      • 1 Rare = 4 Uncommon
      • 1 Rare = 16 Common
    • Uncommon:
      • 1 Uncommon = 4 Commons

  1. Awesome thnx for the info. do you know the coin gained from retiring fully upgraded survivors? you said Common upgraded from uncommon was 9 coins. Id love to know if upgrading to rare and even epic is worth the time once Ive accumulated enough coins. thnx again

    1. Hey Troy – We only know the retire values that are listed above…Eventually we will get more, but initially, it looks like you get about 25% of the Class Tokens you invest into a Survivor. So, if you spend 120 Tokens on an upgrade, you’ll get about 30 Tokens back for that upgrade if you retire. That’s just the early trend developing.

      It doesn’t seem like upgrading Rare or lower Survivors is going to be worth it. Since promoting Epic Survivors to Legendary will take a lot of Radio Calls, the majority of players will still get their Legendaries (and Epics) from Radio Calls.
