BLOCKLORDS Game Tutorial
Exploring the Map
Once the game file is downloaded, log in using the same credentials as your website account to begin your thrilling adventure. During the initial stages, a friendly farmer will serve as your tutorial companion, guiding you through the BLOCKLORDS tutorial. Pay close attention to their instructions as they lead you toward success.
The map in BLOCKLORDS unveils a world of possibilities. It showcases various regions, each inhabited by a specific number of players and resources collected. By selecting a region on the map, you can gain insight into the number of players residing there and the resources available. Some regions are home to Lords and Ladies, and if you possess a unique Hero, you can claim land, establish your own region, and set tax rates for farmers.
Under the guidance of the farmer tutorial companion, you will learn the art of farming in BLOCKLORDS. Utilize the keys QEWASD to navigate the map and pay attention to the mission prompts displayed in the top-right corner of the screen. Your first task will be to send the Villager Squad to collect wood, an essential resource.
Constructing Additional Buildings
As your farm grows, it becomes necessary to construct new buildings to support your operations. For instance, builders can erect a lumbermill, which enables you to hire a Lumberjack Squad responsible for cutting down trees. The building menu automatically displays the structures you have unlocked, ensuring a smooth construction process. However, make sure you have gathered enough resources and tools before initiating construction. Once the construction is confirmed, appropriate positions on your farm will be highlighted, allowing you to send your Squads to work.
Managing Squads and Unlocking Buildings
To maximize your farm's potential, it is essential to assign Heroes to Squads. Heroes can be viewed by clicking the Hero tab located in the top-left section of the left toolbar. Clicking on individual Heroes provides detailed information about their stats and traits.
To assign a Hero to a Squad, navigate to the Squad menu and click on the chess piece within the Squad UI. This action will open a screen displaying available Heroes, Squad buffs, and the option to assign Heroes to the Squad. With Heroes and Squads working together, it is time to expand your resources further. Instruct your builders to create a stone mine, which, once operational, will provide a steady supply of stone, a crucial building resource. Expand your squad roster by recruiting miners and sending them to work in the mine.
Managing Stamina and Events
Keep an eye out for red exclamation marks, as they indicate that one of your Squads has encountered an event. Click on the exclamation mark to explore and resolve the event, which may offer rewards or outcomes that influence your gameplay.
Heroes and Squads require periodic rest to replenish their stamina. Pay attention to their energy levels, and when exhausted, send them back to a designated resting place to eat and regenerate their stamina before they can resume work. Squads may also encounter events, which are indicated by exclamation points floating above their heads and in the Squad status bar. These events provide additional challenges or opportunities that require your attention and decision-making.
A crucial aspect of your farm's success is the management of food resources. As directed by the guide, build a wheat field and assign farmers to cultivate it. Wheat serves as an important resource, and your farmers will diligently plant and plow the fields to produce it. By clicking into the wheatfield, you can configure the wheat growth, adjusting output levels by investing additional tools and gold. Ensure you have sufficient resources and tools available before instructing your farmers to plant seeds in the field.
Additionally, builders will require a forge to carry out their tasks effectively. Upgrade your status to unlock new buildings and access a forge, where tools, an essential resource, are crafted. It is worth noting that food and tools are crucial resources during this stage of the game. Running out of food can hinder stamina regeneration, so it is important to explore different ways of gathering food with your Squads.
To supplement your food supply, visit the marketplace in the city and purchase resources using gold. The marketplace offers limited resources, which reset daily. Select the desired amount of resources and complete the purchase using coins. While in the city, take the opportunity to explore various locations such as the coffer, where the region's Lord or Lady can claim daily resources, and the city hall, which allows Lords and Ladies to set tax policies and contribute to the city's development.
Managing Squads and Buildings
Maintaining active communication and coordination with your Squads is vital. Regularly check on their progress, assign Heroes, ensure they are well-fed and rested, and keep them engaged in productive tasks. Expand your farm's capabilities by constructing a windmill, where cooks can transform wheat into grain, an important resource. However, make sure you have enough bed capacity in the windmill before hiring cooks. Constructing additional houses will increase the number of Squads you can recruit. Once your windmill is operational, configure the grain quality settings from the menu within the windmill and instruct your cooks to convert wheat into grain. To diversify your food resources, build a granary where bakers can produce food using grain. This allows for a more varied and sustainable food supply. Additionally, consider constructing a hunting lodge to enable hunters to venture into the forest and gather meat, further expanding your food options. Assign your hunters to the forest and let them pursue prey to secure meat supplies.
To enhance your farm's productivity, think about incorporating livestock. Instruct your builders to create a cowpen, which can accommodate different types of cows. Each cow type requires varying resources to maintain. Once the Cowpen is ready, recruit a Cowherder Squad to tend to the cows. Cowherders are responsible for feeding, milking, and, if needed, slaughtering the cows. Provide the cows with grain to ensure they are well-nourished. With a steady supply of milk and grain, your builders can then construct a bakery, where they will produce bread, a valuable food resource.
