The Town is where you harvest resources, craft gear, train survivors, and upgrade your buildings and lands.
You can also access your Faction from the Town.
You will need to steadily produce, collect, and upgrade to build your town into a resource centre to support your ongoing development, training, and crafting expenses.
The buildings you choose to make will play a large factor into how well you progress, so choose what you build wisely! Don’t neglect a resource that you may find yourself needing in the near future. Here’s the different buildings and their purpose:
Your Town Hall is one of a kind; it cannot be salvaged, and you cannot build an extra Town Hall. Upgrading this structure unlocks more areas for you to build structures. It is also necessary to access both advanced upgrades for your buildings and more powerful items via research at the Workshop.
Note: The following buildings can only be built on empty plots of land
Continually generate the “Materials” resource. You have to tap the Material Post to collect generated materials. The Material Post has limited storage capacity, so don’t forget to log in and collect your materials or your production will stop.
Periodically generates Food. You have to click on the Farm to collect the generated materials. The Farm has limited storage capacity, so don’t forget to log in and collect your Food or your production will stop.
Allows for the conversion of survivors into characters to join your team at the cost of Food. While it starts off generating low rarity characters, it can be upgraded to provide access to higher rarity characters! Don’t be fooled though, low rarity characters always serve a purpose in helping to level up your favorite characters.
Note: The following buildings can only be built on refurbished houses
Increases the maximum number of survivors that your Town can hold. You can always build more houses or upgrade existing houses to hold more survivors. Alternatively, you can train survivors into characters at the training camp, which removes them from the house.
Increases the maximum amount of Materials that you can hold.
Increases the maximum amount of Food that you can hold.
Allows both the researching and Crafting of Battle Items. Both aspects of this process cost Materials and items found while fighting battles during missions. Better Battle Items will be unlocked as you upgrade the Workshop.
Crafting Battle Items is integral to making sure that your team is well stocked and ready for any encounter. Sometimes the toughest challenges can be overcome with the usage of powerful Battle Items. The effects range from healing and buffing your team, to damaging and crippling your foes. Don’t let these game-changers pass you by!
Researching and Crafting
To open the Crafting section, tap your Workshop. This will open its options. Select the Crafting button, and you will see a menu of what items can be Crafted.
As you upgrade your Workshop, even more options will become available. Of the many difficult choices you’ll face in the game, how much you prioritize Crafting will be a large one.
Research is a necessary step to unlock the Crafting of items. Before you can research a combat item, you’ll need the key ingredients and total Materials. If you have these, you’ll be able to tap the Research timer to begin. Once the research process is started, you’ll have to wait for the research timer to be finished before you can start Crafting additional items.
Once you’ve researched a combat item, you’ll need the required resources and Materials. As long as you meet those Crafting requirements, you can initiate the Crafting process. When the timer finishes, you can claim your finished combat item. Crafting is typically faster than researching, but remember that particularly powerful items might take a long time to Craft! If you just can’t wait, you can always speed up your Crafting using coins.
Each Workshop you own can research independently, so if you want to Craft or research multiple items at once, be sure to build extra Workshops. You’ll be able to churn out items and research more quickly this way if you don’t want to keep paying coins to skip research and Crafting timers.
The Armory is a new building type that allows you to research and upgrade better weapons for your characters. This building is available, when your Town Hall reaches Level 8. One of your Houses will be converted into the Armory; while, the capacity of your remaining houses will be adjusted to hold approximately the same amount of survivors as you could before.
Your Armory can be upgraded to unlock new schematics that will give you access to new weapon upgrades.
Converted Armories will retain the level of the house that it was converted from.
Some parts you need to upgrade weapons can be won in events or purchased from the shop, and others can be crafted in the Armory.
In order to craft a part, you must first research the proper schematic.
Crafting parts will consume materials.
Optional parts are not required, however they may increase the success rate of an upgrade, or add a critical bonus instead.
Much like the Workshop, or Training Grounds, schematics must first be researched before they can be used.
Researching Schematics cost materials and time. Schematics can be researched for:
- Upgrading Stats
- Replacing Stats
- Special Stats
- Crafting Parts
- Disassembling Weapons
- Resetting Weapons
Upgrading Weapon Stats
- First choose a weapon you would like upgrade.
- A list of available schematics for that weapon will appear.
- Choose an available update, or research a new one.
Selecting an available update will take you to the crafting screen, where you will see the parts needed to create the update, as well as any optional parts that may be added. Optional parts may increase the chance of the upgrade’s success or add a critical effect to the upgrade.
If an upgrade fails, all of the parts are lost.
Weapons can be disassembled for parts, that can be used in crafting new upgrades. Disassemble Schematics are required for each type of weapon and requires research, before it can be used. Research in new schematics costs both materials and time.
Weapons can be reset to their original state by resetting them. Each type of weapon will have its own reset schematic, and will cost both materials and time to research.
