Players in cubic castles now have a level associated with their player. You reach new levels by gaining experience. You gain experience by building, crafting, mining, and completing some quests. You will get a small amount of experience for just playing without doing those things but then your level will go up very slowly. There is a maximum level that can be reached but this will likely be raised in future releases as we add new quests or perks. The current top level is level 50.
Well aside from the incredible prestige that comes with a level, each level gives you the opportunity to pick a perk! Perks give your player new abilities! What kinds of abilities? Read the perks list below to see!
Existing players will start with some basic experience and perks granted to them based on the amount of time they've been playing. You will also still get the beginner quests, because we felt you might want to play them and collect the experience, even if they're a little easy for established players. If you've been playing any reasonable length of time don't worry about perks that limit your abilities. You will almost certainly get them all by default leaving the bonus perks as something for you to collect.
For this first version you can use /Perks in the chat box to see a list of your perks. You can't turn off a perk right now. We plan to have an improved perk interface in a near future version.
A quest is a goal in the game that rewards you with either experience or cubits. There are 2 kinds of quests. Predesigned quests, and random daily quests. Random daily quests reward you with cubits if you complete them. Designed quests have particular goals (usually reaching or finding a place) and reward you with additional experience towards your next level.
The quest path that every player gets is designed for NEW players. So yes the basic quests are easy if you've been playing a while before this feature was added. It's intended to help new players learn more about the game as they start building their own realms and trading and making friends. If you want some more quests, or some harder quests to complete and level up a little quicker, check the cubit store for quest packs.
A special perk for new players. Get 1 free hat. Only can be selected when reaching level 1.
