Tower of Fantasy is a new open-world MMORPG released today for PC, iOS, and Android devices. It's a direct competitor to Genshin Impact, which also employs a gacha-based combat system to unlock unique combat abilities. There's also a massive exploration component, so you'll want to send your character looking for chests, solving puzzles, and defeating enemy strongholds.
Our Tower of Fantasy beginners guide provides information and tricks that the game does not explicitly provide, as well as ones that will help in the early game.
Theres a daily level cap
You may only progress once in Tower of Fantasy every day until you hit a wall; on day one, you may reach level 18, on day two you may reach level 24, and so forth. The levels match the chapters in your Wanderers Log, so you can see how close you are to the next capping point.
Once the daily reset time has passed, youll be able to move on. There was very little content to do in the game until we reached level 20, so be aware that day one might be dull.
Server daily reset time is at 5 a.m.EDT
The sign-in bonus, daily bonuses, and other dailies reset at 5 a.m. EDT. If you hit a wall, wait until the reset time passes, after which youll be able to do more dailies and continue leveling.
Simulcra are basically skins, so you can play as whatever you want to be.
As you unlock weapons and characters using the in-game gacha system, you will notice that you dont actually add the characters to your party the way you would in Genshin Impact or other mobile games. Instead, you can activate the Simulacrum to use that character as an avatar, but it makes no sense and is all cosmetic.
Later on, youll be able to unlock a Simulacrum trait that you can customize, giving you various buffs depending on the character.
Remember to use your mount
Since you spend so much time gliding and climbing, it's easy to forget to mount up and ride around as you explore. So make sure you take full advantage of your mounts whenever you're out exploring.
Triangle- and rectangle-shaped chests respawn, but orb-shaped ones do not.
In Tower of Fantasy, there are many different kinds of chests: the orb-shaped ones reward you with gacha currency (Gold and Black Nucleus), and the triangle- and rectangle-shaped ones reward basic materials for upgrading items or making food, as well as EXP.
The orb-shaped chests are obviously more important, as they will reward Dark Crystals, the game's premium currency.
As you climb the cliffs, you can finesse the cliffs by double-jumping.
You can essentially climb a large cliff without worrying about stamina by letting go of the cliff, double-jumping, and then re-jumping it again. Your double-jump should give you some serious air, allowing you to shorten the stamina system.
Use your map to find more Nucleus and chests
If youre near a puzzle that rewards a Black Nucleus or chest, symbols will appear on your minimap near you. The orb-shaped chests will be marked with an orb (of course) and Black Nucleus puzzles will be marked with a diamond shape. These puzzles typically require you to perform fire-type abilities on nearby objects, relics to break down walls, or other similar quick interactions.
From the weapon warehouse menu, you may find your weapon combos.
Select the weapons icon, select the weapon of your choice, and then click the magnifying glass underneath the image of the weapon to see all of its different abilities. Each weapon has different aerial abilities and long-press abilities, so you'll want to figure out how to make the most of your weapon stash.
