Tips and Strategies:

  1. Around every 5 – 7 days, there will be a blood moon that resets the world. This will respawn animals destroyed trees and bushes. You can sleep multiple times to force this to happen if needed.
  2. Monkeys in attack mode. Put your monkeys in attack mode when you are going around the world or in Labyrinths, they will gang-up and take out enemies extremely fast.
  3. Once you find the Wandering Traveler You can always find his new location on the map.
  4. Always have a monkey carry a chest for you. You can hold to grab the chest and then go near a monkey and hold  to pass it to the monkey. (But be careful if the monkey is attacked it can drop the chest so keep an eye out.)
  5. Always pick up meat scraps and meat chunks this is the most common meat that is dropped and can cook simple foods like kababs which restore a lot of health. In Labyrinths, bats are common and drop tons of meat scraps that can be cooked on the fires inside, so if you ever need food in the middle of a Labyrinth raid you won’t have to leave.
