Hello! I'm Hrothgar and this is a Beginners Guide!
NOTE : This thread doesn't contain much about cubits but it does.
1. Starting Off
If you've just started playing, don't go jumping into business just yet! Mine up to Level 2 and don't pick the Mad Hatter perk.
Sure, you look cool, but you're closing off some opportunities (or delaying them.) You can buy one yourself later.
Focus on getting the Faster Mining and Carpenter perks.
You got the perks? Great! Now, decorate your realm to your liking.
After that, you'll have some quests given to you by the game. Do them! They're a lot of fun and they give you a lot of XP.
You've completed the quest? Great! Maybe you even picked up a new friend or two.
Assuming you're Level 5 now, you are ready to go into the material business!
[From my experience, people tend to ignore or manipulate level 5- players.]
Head on over to the mountain mine [Tinkerworld has 7 ish mountain mines]
and mine boulders. By mining boulders in the mountains you get stone, coal and boulders. The desert boulders drop stones only.
Assuming that you play for an hour, continue mining for 15 minutes.
Done? Great! Now with 15 minutes of mining you should have 500+ stones and 500+ coals along with 30+ cubits and a bunch of boulders.
Take the boulders back to your realm and break them till you're out of boulders.
Great! Now you have 600+ stones and coal!
Head over to the realm "Pen's Yard Rentals" or just advertise. Buy a cash register for 20 cubits and proceed.
When you're at Pen's rent yourself a rental spot where a fair amount of people walk. Rentals cost 10 cubits/hour.
Put your ores on display and sell them for
Stone - 10/c
and if you picked the Mad Hatter perk
Hat - 15-20c
Sold them? Awesome! You now probably have 70-100 cubits.
Spend some of it on your apparel and voila! You're a well-earning player in Cubic Castles!
I follow my own methods and earn 400+ cubits every day (if I'm lazy which I am.)
When I'm not lazy I earn 1000+ cubits.
Also, think of stone like this (gets you excited)
10 stones are a cubit.
100 stones are 10 cubits.
1000 stones are 100 cubits.
10,000 stones are 1000 cubits.
and they're easy to get.
Update! (Dec 15, 2017)
Hello again! I have some more minor tips for you!
Get ready to rent another rental.
Take some nice looking blocks like blue marble or diamond.
Rent your spot near the entrance so your rental is among the first they spot!
This is something I've learned that affects you. If you go to Pen's feeling bored or any negative emotion, you're more likely to quit.
But go in hopes of scoring big, nothing'll bring you down!
At Pen's there will be noob callers. Heck, you'll even get a kick out of them!
Just ignore them, they're not worth your time. It's like arguing with a tree. There's no profit $$$$$
If anyone tries to negeotiate or wants to trade something other than cubits, don't blow them off. You might lose a good offer.
Try to negeotiate in a formal manner. Superior-like.
Customer - 10c?
You - No, get out!
Customer - 10c?
You - how about 15c?
Customer - hmm...13c?
Accept it! It's only a matter of 2c!
Do not try to be greedy! You can still earn cubits.
This game isn't 'act first, think later'. Take your time.
That's it for now!
See you, or talk to you later!
