- Each and every time you exit and reenter the game new debris will appear.
- Clearing debris will earn you coins, experience, and items required for building. You can view any items you find by opening your inventory.
Important Tips and Tricks
- Be sparing with your axes. If you only use them when you are directed to search the Dark Forest via a quest, you shouldn’t run out of them too quickly.
- Completing quests is a good way to earn coins and experience, as well as earning items like gold and axes.
- In case you become anxious for coins you can sell back decorations and buildings but it will be at a significant loss.
- You should save tasks that are time consuming for when you will be away from the game. Items, such as treasure chests, can take over an hour to unlock. If you assign too many helpers to time consuming tasks you won’t have any left to collect resources from buildings or clear away debris.
- Make sure to log in daily to earn a new gift on daily basis. Logging in successive days in a row will earn you gradually better rewards.
