The Barracks is unlocked at stage 1-12.
The Barracks offers Rare/Elite Hero Soulstones and 4 Rare Heroes. Items here can be bought for Hero Coins, which can be acquired by retiring Heroes.at the Rickety Cart. The offers never change but are refreshing on a monthly basis. The Barracks can be manually refreshed for 1000 Diamonds.
The recommended use of Hero Coins are for limited-time Dimensionals/Garrisons.
The Labyrinth Store is unlocked at stage 2-4.
The Labyrinth Store is mostly limited to Hero Soulstones and Heroes, the offer is always the same and refreshes monthly. Additionally Hero's Essence can also be bought here. Labyrinth Tokens can be acquired in the Arcane Labyrinth for winning battles and clearing floors. Red banners give slightly more Labyrinth Tokens than brown banners. The Labyrinth Store can be manually refreshed for 1000 Diamonds.
While Rare Hero Soulstones offer the best Tokens per Elite Hero ratio Nemora and Shemira are top-tiered heroes that are very powerful throughout the whole game. Many players suggest buying one or even both of them. The options of buying specific Elite Hero Soulstones are very limited. Though buying Hero's Essence in here should be very well considered and probably be an exception.
Recommended Lab Store purchases include Arthur, Dimensional Emblems/Red Chests
The Challenger Store is unlocked at stage 9-20.
The Challenger Store offers Elite Hero Soulstones for 21 specific Heroes and 3 Rare Soulstones. This includes 2 Celestials, 2 Hypogeans, 1 Dimensional (in a couple months), and 17 factional heroes. The heroes offered are always the same and while the store refreshes every 24 hours, manually refreshing the store for 100 Diamonds only refills the shelves of bought stock. However to buy those Heroes one has to use Gladiator Coins obtained from the Legends' Challenger Tournament.
The obtainable heroes go as followed:
Never buy heroes from the main 4 factions; they're generally considered not worth it (besides maybe fringe cases like 1 copy away from your 1st ascended). Red Chests are also considered not worth it due to their high cost.
Recommended priorities are (in order):
