Haven Worlds - Constructing Buildings

Haven Worlds are coming soon, and you probably already want to know everything there is to know about them. After all, you surely want to maximize your chances to make your guild the greatest one of the World of Twelve! Here’s a Devblog that should catch your attention and help you achieve success: how to construct buildings in a Haven World!

How to build something?

If you want to erect a building, you will first have to open the building interface by talking to the Rotcere Master. Anyone in your guild with the appropriate right will be able to do so.

This interface will show you a list of all buildings, grounds and other structures available, organized in themed tabs. Each of them will have a given cost and conditions, but can also grant bonuses. In this article, we will focus on the building tab.
Interface in development, not yet translated and not definitive
Knowing the costs and conditions of the buildings of your Haven Worlds could already put you one step ahead of others, and give you a global visibility over your possibilities.

What are the conditions?

Constructions are spread over 4 “Tiers”. Those used to strategy games probably already know the meaning of this word. If you are not one of them, don’t worry, we will try to make it as clear as possible!

Each “Tier” represents a precise step of the evolution of your Haven World, during which only specific buildings are available for construction. To unlock more buildings, you will have to reach the following Tier. And to reach this tier, you will have to fulfill a set of conditions. Let me give you an example.

Each Haven World will begin at Tier 1. At this setp, you will have only one single building available: The Guild Hall (I’ll tell you more about its use later).

If you want more buildings, you will have to evolve and reach Tier 2. Lucky you! You can reach Tier 2 by only building a Guild Hall.

Erecting this Guild Hall will therefore allow you to reach Tier 2, and unlock new buildings such as houses, Zaaps, or even the Guild Hall level 2.

To reach Tier 3, you will need a Guild Hall level 2. And to be able to upgrade your Guild Hall to level 2, you will need 3 houses. Still following?

How to reach Tier 4 you ask? You will have to discover that in game!

Examples

As you’ve seen, the system is quite simple.

As many building games, you will need resources and Rotceres available to erect a new building. And of course, you will also have to fulfill the conditions of the building you’re trying to construct before starting the work.

Concerning resources costs, they are still being balanced, but we hope to be able to give you more examples soon, so you can start planning with your guild.

I’ll finish now with some examples of buildings that can be placed in your Haven World. This should give you a better view of the kind of conditions and bonuses buildings can provide.

Note that these are only a few examples (there will be many more to discover in game!).

Note that these elements are not definitive yet. Haven Worlds represent a real challenge to the development, game design and level design teams and it could happen that some details change until implementation (particularly names and effects of the buildings)!

Until then, if you have any questions, please ask! We will try to answer them the best we can.

OH WOW!!!! When will they be launced?
Wow I'm so excited about this
SO MUCH EXCITEMENT!
realy nice. we wait it 1 year

Can we build some defensive structure? for example: Tower.
Will there bonus to increase production? May be bakery get +20% to baking bread =)
.... i need more information biggrin #excited
Awesome! I am even more excited about this system now ^^ ..can't wait for more information Ankama smile
Very excited.
Also, a quick question:
Are these all of the buildings we'll be able to construct? Or are there more on the way?
Edit: I forgot how to read.
OH so glorious, but can I build an Eniripsa temple there?
Its all looking very nice! Just a question - will there be a way to get the haven world to look a bit more natural? Or in a similar style to the celestial gobball dungeon?
Other than that it all seems to be coming together smile
This is awesome.

And also a good incentive to finally start using that Amaknian market! Come on, Amaknian guilds. Or the marketplace in your own Haven World will be unworthy to be called Amaknian!
Wow, this is cool. But, can you customize it to look how you want? smile
Marketplace

Conditions: Guild Hall – Level II.

Effects (Haven World): Access to the Market of the Nation in which the Haven World is located.

Bonta's HW places would be popular as hell ...
Very nice!
Cool ~~~~~~:3
If people hang out in the heaven worlds will this not make the other maps emptier?
MoonBears! he said "Note that these are only a few examples (there will be many more to discover in game!)." this is only a little taster !
EPIC
This is awesome but my biggest concern is powerabusing from strong guilds :/ will they be able to conquer every single haven world from low-level guilds? or will they have a limit of conquests?
I'm excited about this too!

But I'm also worried like other few ppl that the regular world may be even more emptier because of this? :/
