Getting Started: Thirst of Night
-The quest system is put in place to guide you on specific tasks that must be accomplished. Be sure to read over the quests carefully and don’t forget to collect the rewards after completing each task.
-Your avatar will be there to help you with a recommended quest to expand your Vampiric rule! You can choose between six different avatars in you character selection screen.
-If you are ever unsure of what to do next… check in with him or her!
-Buildings are an essential component to any successful city. Constructing and upgrading a variety of buildings will help your city become more powerful and thrive by providing different bonuses and resources.
-Each construction task takes a certain amount of time to complete and requires a certain amount of resources to initiate. These requirements can be found when clicking on the building type you wish to construct or upgrade.
-It is imperative to always be researching new and different types of technologies to gain a leg up on your opponent. You can do so in the Research Center.
-Each type of research will have a build time, a short description of what the research does – and most importantly have the necessary prerequisites listed in order to begin research. To see the requirements, please click on the research you wish to upgrade.
-Building a Barracks will gain you access to training different types of troops.
-Stronger troops require a higher Barracks level, and some may require your other buildings to be a higher level as well.
-Remember that training troops comes at a cost! Blood resources are important to keep your troops thriving and to prevent them from deserting you.
General Tips for New Players:
-When it comes to constructing a building, researching technologies, or training troops, only one timer of each type (research, building, troop training) can be active at any one time. Plan your strategy and be sure to keep a timer going at all times in order to make the most of your time!
-If you’re looking for players to chat with or play with, consider joining an Alliance! Participate in World Chat to meet new players and form friendships.
-Keep a close eye on your resource consumption! If you want to construct new buildings, make sure you are producing enough resources to meet the requirements.
-The physical layout of buildings in your city does not have any effect on their usefulness, place them wherever you like. Having second thoughts about a building? You can always deconstruct it and build something else.
