Where to Start

To get started we suggest you use the 'Westland' link. Go to the 'The Forest' to start on your first game quest. This game area will allow you to get an idea of how the game is played. In The Forest you will run into animals and monsters to battle, find items here, explore caves and such, AND complete in-game quests.

We will leave the rest up to your to discover, but make sure you visit Westland and look around (don’t be shy – click on links to see where they take you and what they offer). Remember, once you have enough gold, buy new weapons and also keep your member well trained via the 'Training Facility'. If you happen to get stuck, feel free to visit 'Newbie Chat' (there are almost always Game Staff & Admin here to help you!) or post on the Help forums. You can also contact Game Staff and Admin directly if you are experiencing difficulty (view who is on-line from the ‘Players Online’ link at the bottom right of screen).

We also have a Full User Guide (Help link at top right of screen), which explains the game in more detail. You can access this from any page by hitting the help link in the top right of your screen.

Good luck and enjoy the game!

Game Basics

HP (health) is healed automatically during revive (see Revives below). It can also be healed at Wizard Ruben or with food from the Food Shop (bought with tokens from Outposts). Subscribers can also heal at Subscriber Options (Westland) using the Great Waterfall. Maximum HP will increase with each level gained and can be increased further with the use of AP points.

Energy is refilled automatically during revive (see Revives below). Energy can also be refilled in many other ways throughout the game including Drinks from the Food Shop (bought with tokens from Outposts). Maximum Energy can also be increased by finding special “springs” in the Dark Forest or by using Helix Charms (made with 50 Helix at the HCC). Energy Rings will add to your Max Energy but only while you are wearing them (note: these must be on at Revive to fill). Subscribers can refill Energy at Subscriber Options (Westland) using the Energy Shack.

Revives are every hour for non-subscribers and 2 x per hour for subscribers. To see when the next revive is please look at the Revive clock on the bottom right of your screen.

Resets are every 12 hours. These reset your Fishing casts, Mining Fatigue, Training turns at the Training Facility and Outpost turns. To see when the next Reset is please look at the Reset clock on the bottom center of your screen.

Training Facility is where you get turns to “work-out at the gym” to increase your stats. For non-Subs it is 15 trains and Subscribers get 20 trains. Do not forget to do this every Reset!!!!

Game Currencies

Gold is the common in-game currency. Weapons and other items may be bought with this.

Platinum is used to “purchase” skills at the Chamber of Wisdom in Westland, to exchange for tokens to use at Outposts or in Food Shop in Westland, to make Stones at the Slated Hut, and to get custom equipment at the Blacksmith in Westland (level 30 and up). They can also be used in very large quantity to buy Elements. AND Platinum are used by Clans to pay for Clan Healing Passes.

Helix is used for Energy. You can use just one at the Helix Mines in Westland for 30 Energy Refill OR you can save and use 50 for a Permanent Max Energy Charm at the HCC in Westland (recommended).

Sapphires are used in game for many different things the most common of which is to reset your “gym trains” for added stats training at the Training Facility. Go to Shadow Castle in Westland for details of all the things you can do with Sapphires.

Elements are used in game to raise or lower your level. These are very useful and used mostly for lowering your level.

Reset Tokens are found in your Overview. These are used in game to create a "reset" for your character - same benefit as regular Game reset... but don't forget to use all things affected by the Game reset first! You don't want to accidently forget to fish or train and then miss out on the "second" reset worth from the Reset Token.

Stones are made with Platinum at the Slated Hut in Westland. They are used to have your Slated Hut Dwelling earn interest.

Ores – Burelia and Alethite are the types of ore you mine from The Mines in Westland. These are used in the Blacksmith to create custom equipment and weapons for Level 30 and up.

Tokens are made at the Outposts. Tokens are used to build Outposts and buy Food/Drink for HP and energy refills at the Food Shop in Westland. You can also get tokens in Westland at the Platinum Shop – 1 platinum = 100 tokens. Tokens can’t be traded or transferred between players. Warning: It is best to spend your Outpost Tokens as quickly as possible - other Outposts can attack and steal yours if you hold them.
