Tower of Fantasy is a new open-world MMORPG released now on PC, iOS, and Android devices. It too 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 searching for chests, solving puzzles, and destroying enemy strongholds.
Our Tower of Fantasy beginner's guide provides advice and tricks you may not expect from the game at the time, but which can be helpful in the early game.
Theres a daily level cap
Every day in Tower of Fantasy, you can only progress so far before you hit a wall. On day one, you can reach level 18, on day two, you can reach level 24, and so on. The levels coincide with the chapters in your Wanderers Log, so you can check that to 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 beware that day one might be dull.
Server daily reset time is at 5 a.m.EDT
Everything from the sign-in bonus to daily bonuses and other dailies reset at 5 a.m. EDT. If you hit a wall (as discussed above), wait until the reset time passes, after which youll be able to continue leveling.
Simulcra are basically skins, so play as you please.
As you unlock weapons and characters using the in-game gacha system, youll notice that you don't actually add the characters to your party as you'd in Genshin Impact or other mobile games. Instead, you can activate the Simulacrum to make a character as an avatar, but it makes no difference to the game.
Later on, you'll be able to unlock a Simulacrum trait that you can customize, giving you various buffs depending on the character.
Remember to use your mount
As you explore, its easy to forget to mount up and ride around. Riding your mount is much faster than sprinting, therefore make sure to take advantage of your mounts whenever you go.
Chests with triangle and rectangle shapes respawn, while 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), while the triangle- and rectangle-shaped ones reward basic materials for upgrading items or making food, as well as EXP.
The orb-shaped chests are evidently more important, since they'll also reward Dark Crystals, the games premium currency.
As you climb the cliffs, you can finesse the cliffs by double jumping.
If you're unable to climb a large cliff, you can essentially climb it infinitely without worrying about stamina by letting go of the cliff, double-jumping, and climbing the cliff again. Your double-jump should give you some substantial air, allowing you to cheese the stamina system quite a bit.
Use your map to find more Nucleus and chests
If you are near a black nucleus or chest, symbols will appear on your minimap near you. 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 use fire-type abilities on nearby objects, relics to break down walls, or other similar quick interactions.
From the weapon warehouse menu, you may learn your weapon combos.
Click on the weapons menu, select your weapon of choice, and then touch the magnifying glass under the image of the weapon to see all of its different abilities. Each weapon has different aerial abilities and long-press abilities, so youll want to learn how to make the most of your weapon stash.
