Introduction
Hey I'm back with another guide this time with a few basics. If you have any comments or questions feel free to leave them in the comments. Potentially missing some content from the different locations, do note though I don't give locations to NPC's or their houses. That is intentional get out and explore, make friends and have fun.

Basics
Farming:

With Farming you use a hoe on grass to turn it to a field where you can then place a seed on it. Once done you will need to water with the watering can until it grows then harvest with a Scythe. Note the hoe can make a field but also right click to turn the field to grass.
So you want some cows and chickens? Well first go give Kitty a visit and out the front of her house you will see pens with cows and chickens for sale. Once you acquire them go to the pet store where you can by pet food and pets. The pet food is for animals that have a food bar it'll go down and you just push e to feed or if you aren't holding food e to pet.

Combat:

Left click with your sword or bow to deal damage to foes, a good place to start is going to the right side of the beach. If you go their for the first time you'll get fishing.

Spells:

You have two spell slots and once you gain a spell to assign it a slot hover over the 2 Purple Sun circles above the bar a menu should pop up. To use the spells push the assigned button either Q or R. Hover over the spell to see it's mana cost. Air Skip takes 2 mana to use

Mining:

To the very right of the map you will gain access to the mine, to break rocks left click with your pick axe. To progress through the mines you need to craft a corresponding key or find a rusty key hidden in the rocks.

Exploration:

It's simple just explore and pick up items from the ground, shake trees, or gather mushrooms off the trees with E you can also break pots in the mine.

Fishing:

You will get taught the basics when you first visit the Sun Haven beach, but essentially it's the same system as Animal Crossing New Horizons. Those that don't know you find a fish shadow in the water wait for a big splash not the small nibbles.

Relationships:

Just have conversations with NPC's and get to know them and fill up their heart bar.

Mana Orbs:

Appartment/Rooftop Farm:

To become a full citizen you need an apartment which gives you access to a rooftop farm and second Home. How do I get it? Use your exploration skills and have a look around. Something about 2 moons down from the bridge to the Kings Castle.

Tickets:

So first time in Withergate and you can't buy anything but some seeds. Well use those seeds to plant on your rooftop farm and sell those for tickets.

Stores/Buildings:

Hat Shop, Lady who sells seeds for Gold, Pet Shop, Withergate Tailor Shop Jump on the spider web. and The Apartment Building
Wish I knew
This section is for a list of stuff that people wish they knew when they first started. WILL BE SPOILER HEAVY.

Currently bare as I haven't gone through much of the steam forums to look for some FAQs feel free to ask some in the comments and I'll add it here.

The fountain in the centre of town provides 5 mana every 7 days, I believe there is a second location unknown to me currently.

Library Contains a book to the forest riddle.

Each NPC house contains a book, when reading take note of the blue items. That's their favourite gifts.

a couple more basic tips:
> snaccoon reappears to block specific paths every week.
> right click a stack of items to grab one

How do you sell one item from a stack?

Lynnea, you make a crafting table to craft items. One was given to you at the start. There are other items you will need to make with the crafting table to craft/make even more items. IE, make a Grinder to turn wheat into flour or make a cooking pot to make meals that you can eat or sell or give away to NPC's, etc.

How do you craft? I can not figure out where to open a crafting menu and the internet is not helping

The Rooftop farm is in the elevator you use to get to your Withergate apartment. Sorry for late reply I've been swapped at work.
Coronana Sep 26, 2021 @ 6:48am 
About Tickets, where is the rooftop farm, please ?!

There is a second location that provides 15 mana (i don't know how often) north of the eastern forest. You have to feed a Snaccoon to be able to access the area tho.
