Character/Class

When choosing your character in the very beginning, take the time to go through all the options in order to select a character who’s type fits your game style. Below are the eight different classes available (despite you being to select among more characters, there are simply repetition of the same classes).

Controls

  • There is no visual joystick, but to move your character around the map, simple act as if there was one literally anywhere on the screen.
  • When in battle, moving no longer relies on the joystick, but rather on a “tap where you want your character to go to” mechanic. Be warned.
  • You can zoom in and out by pinching in or out on your screen.
  • Tapping the crossed swords at the bottom right will pull the camera back and remove most on-screen menus to provide a broader perspective. Very useful when roaming around the map.
  • To interact with an element on the map (building, creature, item, etc.), simply tap the element once, then tap the desired hexagonal to launch the desired action.

Death

Upon dying, you will lose all your items except for those that you have equipped. Worry not, you can retrieve your items by returning to the location where you died.

Farming

Under Construction.

Inventory

You will quickly notice that 100 slots isn’t much. We strongly recommend crafting as many pots as possible on your tamed island as soon as you can.

There are items that cannot be moved from your bag, sadly. That includes items with a lock on them, and those that are labeled as Trade Unavailable.

Islands

There are multiple locations/islands available.

  • Untamed Islands: Where you will find wild creatures (to hunt or tame), the Market, higher level resources, the Communication Hub (for Missions), etc. You will also be able to interact with other players. These islands refresh every so often, so building something there isn’t the smartest thing to do.
  • Tamed Island: Your own private island. Buildings will not decade on Tamed Islands. You can expand your Domain on your own Tamed Island to up to 13 sections (for free). You can set your Tamed Island to play with your friends.
  • Civilized Islands: Minimum requirement: Level 30. Island level islands where clans and pioneers can claim Domains together. These islands are permanent, but require T-Stones to maintain. Buildings on Civilized Islands will slowly decade.
  • Savage Islands: Where PvP takes place.

To go from one island to the other, one must use Warps.

T-Stones

T-Stones is the in-game currency that will allow you to purchase items in the Market, teleport to the Untamed Islands, etc. Basically, you need lots of it! Below are the various way to collect T-Stones.

  • Market: Sell your items (really anything) on the Market. We recommend benchmarking prices for the item you wish to sell, and to sell it for a slightly small price in order to ensure being able to actually sell it.
  • Missions: At the Communication Hub on Untamed Islands, you can be assigned Missions that will reward you with small, but decent amount of T-Stones.
  • Tasks/Events/Achievements: Make sure to complete your daily/weekly tasks, every Events and Achievements as this will be the main source of income for T-Stones.
  • Exploring/Craters: Discovering new Craters will reward you with a small, but decent and considerable amount of T-Stones.
  • Store: The simplest way to get T-Stones is through the Store, but this will require you to spend real money on the game.

Taming

The question we see the most often on social medias is: “How do you tame a Dinosaurs?” Let’s go through it step by step.

Requirements:

  • Player level 15;
  • Construction Skill level 15 (can be upgraded by crafting Bedding, the easiest way, or Road Signs, Fish Traps, Makeshift Tents, etc.);
  • Survival Skill (Animal Taming) level 15
  • Crabgrass Flowers: Tons of it. These can be found far in the North Western region of Untamed Islands. Despite the game saying it’s a herbivore and it eats pretty much any vegetal, it actually only eats Crabgrass Flowers.

How to tame a Dinosaur:

  1. Receive a call from Professor Lamar upon reaching player level 15;
  2. Visit the location recommended by Professor Lamar to find Zebraceratops level 13;
  3. Fight one until it is low health (preferably stunned or collapsed) – Make sure to use decent gears and weapons and upgraded special skills as Zebraceratops have high health and high health regeneration;
  4. Around 30% health, a Spider Web icon will light up in white among your Special Skills, tap it to capture the creature;
  5. Success rate is quite low in the early stages of the game (between 10-20%) so you may have to repeat step 3 and 4 several times);
  6. Once captured, return to your Tamed Island/Domain;
  7. Craft and build a Makeshift Taming Pen (required to be Construction Skill level 15) or use the one provided by Professor Lamar;
  8. Place your Captured Zebraceratops into the Makeshift Taming Pen;;
  9. Wait for the delay to be over (you can feed it Crabgrass Flowers to accelerate the timer – 1 minute per piece of food);
  10. Hope that the taming was successful when clicking to see results, or else the creature will escape and you find yourself having to start over.

After this, you’ll be able to bond and put the tamed creature in your Bag as if it were any other item. This way, you can carry it over wherever you go, ride it to move around faster, but keep in mind that your creature needs feeding, so always carry some of the food it eats.

To do the same process with other creatures, you will need to upgrade your Survival – Animal Taming skill. The higher it is, the more creatures you’ll be able to capture and tame. Keep in mind that the food requirement will vary depending on the creature you are taming.
