So you want those juicy Tech Points in Azur Lane and you want them now? The fastest way by far to earn Tech Points is collecting ships in Azur Lane. The more ships you collect the more Tech Points you can earn from them. We previously detailed how to get Tech Points in Azur Lane as a F2P player but here we want to expand on why collecting ship girls is the fastest way for you to actually earn Tech Points and improve your overall Fleet.
The tech points you get in Azur Lane vary depending on the rarity of the ship so it is paramount that commanders are all going for high rarity ship girls for levelling up and limit breaking the ship.
When you break a ship’s limits, you increase their star rarity and they also gain bonuses depending on individual ships. This rewards you with Tech Points.
What levels can you limit break in Azur Lane?
You can perform a Limit Break on each ship thrice. The levels when a Limit Break is available is as follows:
- Level 10
- Level 30
- Level 70
Limit breaking is what you need to do AFTER you have collected enough ships. By far the easiest method to collect new ships is rolling the gacha however it is also possible to collect new ship girls simply from exploration and event content. Make sure to always use up all your stamina for the day on pushing to new maps until all maps are unlocked because this will benefit you in the long run instead of just farming a single map for materials.
Pushing for new maps will grant the ability to access higher level equipment and rarer ship girls than the lower maps as well as even 5-6 star ship girls.
How to buy Tech Points in Azur Lane?
To buy tech points in Azur Lane you will need to whale (spend money) on the gacha banner. For the whales in Azur Lane it is obviously possible as well to simply buy your way to more tech points by rolling the gacha. It is recommended by us however that you ONLY roll on the event banner until you have gotten all the copies you need before switching to lower-value banners.
The event banners contain the newest chars alongside the featured char and will benefit you more even if you already have 1 copy of the ship girl on the featured banner. The standard banner is fine to roll with excess cash however before digging in too deep we would like to recommend not maxing out your Tech Points in Azur Lane via this method as it can be extremely depressing getting multiple copies of the same ship girl.
Remember, similar ship girls do not earn you more Tech Points, the ship girl with the highest level is the one that will be counted for your Tech Points in Azur Lane.
