Farming

Farming means that you can sustain a somewhat steady flow of a certain block without running out of them. Blocks drop varying amounts of seeds, and gems along with special drops (e.g. Feather, Snail and Shiny Pebble). The high yielding blocks are better for farming purposes.

You can start farming even from the most common blocks, such as Soil Block and Cave Wall, but they won't yield as many gems compared to blocks from higher tiers.

List of most popular farmables: Magic Stuff, Kiwi Block, Candy Cane Block, BBB, Spike Bomb. (as of July 2020)

You can also use the Careful Wreck & Scent of Gold perks in order to increase the chance of dropping a block when you break a blocks & the chance of getting bonus drops from blocks.

Planting

WikiPlanting.png

Breaking blocks can yield said blocks, their seeds, and gems. You can plant seeds to the ground by selecting them from your inventory and then clicking on a block within your reach. The planted seed will then sprout and grow into a mature tree that can be harvested by punching it.

Harvesting a tree yields blocks and can also drop seeds and gems. E.g. A Soil Block tree will yield Soil Blocks and might also drop Soil Block Seeds and gems along with special drops (e.g. Feather, Snail and Shiny Pebble). The gained blocks can then be placed in the world and broken again.

Crossbreeding

Crossbreeding-0.png

You can create new trees by crossbreeding two seeds that are compatible with each other. To do this you plant one seed as usual then another one on top of it. If the crossbreeding is successful the growing tree's appearance will change and the used seed will disappear.

You also able to open Recipe Book in which you're able to look at already unlocked recipes of various blocks & items. Besides, you're able to look at how to make unknown items of the next/higher tiers by crossbreeding (If you already unlocked the needed ingredients for them). You can access Recipe Book through the Options Menu button or by using the Open Recipes hotkey button on PC (The "R" key by default).

User Interface

Locks-0.png

There are different kinds of locks that control either only a certain area or the whole world. The player can use locks to lock all the blocks in its area of effect or the whole world. Other players cannot break blocks or otherwise edit an area you have locked unless you (the lock owner) change the locks settings to allow this by using the wrench tool on the lock. 'Be careful who you trust!'

You can obtain locks from the shop by using Gems with the exception of Clan World Lock which is created by paying a fee of 200,000 Gems for creation of the Clan & Clan World in one of your worlds locked with World Lock via Clan section accessible by clicking on Social Button; And Newbie World Lock which can only be obtained by creating a new account and later be turned into World Lock. Both of them decay after 30 days of owner's inactivity and player can only have a single Newbie & Clan World Locks.

Locks can also be used the other way around; to unlock a certain area from a locked world. To place a lock in an already locked world you need to own both of the locks.

Newbie World Locks & Clan World Locks decay after 30 days of inactivity. Small, Medium and Large Locks decay after 90 days of inactivity. World Locks, Dark World Locks, Platinum Locks, Battle World Locks and Faction Battle World Locks decay after 365 days of inactivity.

Fishing-0.png

Fishing is one of the ways to obtain Gems in Pixel Worlds and generally a fun activity. To start fishing you need to have a Fishing Rod and some Lures. Both can be bought from the in-game Shop. There is also a Fishing Kit available.

Fishing2-0.png

Use a Lure by selecting it and tapping a free water surface while standing right next to it. You also need to have a Fishing Rod equipped.

The depth of water or any other liquid determines the depth you are fishing. Different specifies live in different depths. The more you have liquid connected to each other, the more often you catch fish. The more water, the better!

Backgrounds also play a part in how different lures work. Some lures might work better or worse with e.g., Winter Background.

Clans

Creation of The Clan

To create a new Clan, you need to be in a world that you have locked with a basic World Lock and from there, press the Social Button in-game and select "Create Clan" from the Clan tab (You need to be at Level 25+).

This will change your World Lock into a Clan Lock and you will become the Leader of that clan. When creating a new clan you will be asked to fill out the clan's info. This will include the clan's Name, Tag, Info and Faction. Remember that 'ONLY' the Info can be changed afterwards! The Clan's Faction determines e.g. the colour of your Clan Tag and some of the clan specific items you're able to purchase from the Shop.

Joining the existing clan

If you want to join an existing clan, just ask for an Invite from a player that already belongs to a clan and has the rights to invite new members. The invite can then be accepted just like a friend request. A player can only be a member of one clan at a time.

Clan Totem & Leveling Up

A Clan Totem must be placed in the clan world for the clan to be able to Level Up. You can also check other clan info from the Totem. Leveling up the clan allows more members to join the clan and it will also unlock certain Clan Bonuses. These bonuses can be then acquired by leveling up your personal |Reputation Level.

Both, the Clan Level & |Reputation Level can be increased by accumulating XP and then leveling up. All the basic in-game XP you accumulate from the point of joining a clan will then be also added to both of these in addition to your normal Experience Level. Remember that if you leave a clan or are kicked out of one, your personal Reputation Level will be 'RESET' to 1!

Clans Ranks

ClanRanks.png

Clans also have a Rank system that gives different rights to members. Such as inviting or kicking out members, etc. A clan member with higher rank can also promote or demote a lower ranking member.

When you create a new clan, you automatically become the highest ranking member of that clan which is called the Leader. When you invite other members to your clan, they start as Rookies.

Rights for Ranks:

Leader: Leader has all the rights which include: Ability to Invite, Kick, Promote, Demote and Edit the clan info. The leader is also the only member of a clan that can Disband the clan.

Co-Leader: Co-Leader has the rights to Invite, Kick, Promote, Demote and Edit the clan info.

Elder: Elder is able to invite new members to the clan & kick any lower ranking members.

Veteran, Member and Rookie:

These lower ranking members do not have any special rights.
