Optimal reset period Edit

Most players have come to the agreement that if it takes more than 5 seconds to defeat a Boss (after 10/10 of every 5th difficulty) it is wise to reset in order to benefit from the White Orbs' bonus damage that have been gathered so far. A good choice is to collect all available chests before going through a portal.

Optimal tapping strategies Edit

New players may not initially be aware of the different options available for tapping. Along with clicking the mouse, players can also utilize the keys on the keyboard to tap. If the player is playing on a keyboard, for tapping speed and efficiency, placing the fingers of the left hand on Q-W-E-R and the fingers of the right hand on P-{ - } - | can maximize the speed of the tap and alleviate some strain on the fingers.

Cursor or tapping locations can vary depending on the goal that you're attempting to accomplish.

Houses' destruction rate Edit

When clearing low-level areas, your DPS should be way above the building health. Therefore, the rate of destroying buildings would be limited by the building respawn delay. However, tapping can reduce such delay to almost instant, allowing quicker progression. Placing the cursor at the top-center of the screen, parallel to the "1" of sloth form bypasses the villagers almost completely. While advancing through low-levels, villager clicks have a tendency to slow the progress of building explosions. Using this strategy, the player will hit very few flaming villagers and be able to move through levels almost as quick as the sloth's form allows one to advance.

Creating Pearl Necklace Pearl Necklaces to increase the duration of the Sloth's Form is also advised for early-game players.

Gathering items Edit

In order to acquire ghosts, gems, event items, etc., placing the cursor in the direct vicinity of the red knight on the screen can maximize the amount of villagers that cross the path of the cursor without having to move it. This is also effective once the player has created items that increase the amount of skulls received from fallen villagers.

Item Prioritization Edit

Before reading the following, please consult Item Stacking section for a brief explanation on diminishing returns.

The following list is based on opinions and may not reflect your personal views.

Chest selection priority
# Item Motivation
1 Power Potion Power Potion Component required to craft Pearl Necklace Pearl Necklaces, Chaos crest Chaos Crests and additional War splinter War Splinters.
2 Death Calice Death Chalice Component required to craft Squid Stone Squid Stones and additional Greed splinter Greed Splinters.
3 Stone Tablet Stone Tablet Can be used to craft Power Cube Power Cubes and Pearl Necklace Pearl Necklaces.
In early game this item has the highest priority.
4 Magic Ring Magic Ring Component required to craft Pearl Necklace Pearl Necklaces, Chaos crest Chaos Crests and many other items.
5 Zombie Horde's Eye Zombie Horde's Eye Component required to craft Chaos crest Chaos Crests.
6 Squid's Teddy Bear Squid's Teddy Bear Increases DPS of the second strongest monster in the game and is a component required to craft Squid Stone Squid Stones.
7 King's Collar King's Collar Increases DPS of the strongest monster, however in late game it doesn't give much boost to the DPS.

Please note, you always need at least two items to forge the highest tier King's Collar, but two second highest tier Collars would yield more bonus. See Result Rarity and Tier for details with upgrading items with Ghosts.

Speed Runs for Item Farming Edit

Depending on the number of orbs and the players damage and skull multiplier, speed may differ, but with a 500x orb damage multiplier and 5x skull modifier, speed runs through the Rock Golem takes ~7 minutes.

For each run, accomplish the following:

  1. Click to defeat the first stage and yield enough skulls to upgrade Bob to level 2 and buy a Zombie Horde.
  2. Wait while Bob sleeps (assuming you have the Power Potions) and upgrade the Zombie Horde to level 50, getting the 5% skull bonus.
  3. Upgrade the Zombie Horde as quickly possible and complete the first 4 areas (through difficulty 70).
  4. Fight the Rock Golem and take the blue chest.
  5. Go through the time portal.
  6. Repeat

This strategy only yields 3-6 orbs per trip, but maximizes item farming for early play. Once level 205 can be completed in under 10 minutes, players should speed run to the second chest and second time portal (yielding ~200 orbs per run and 2 blue chests).

Crafting Edit

Must-craft items
# Item Motivation
1 War shard War Shard
Greed shard Greed Shard
Though, at the beginning, due to Power Cube Piece Power Cube Pieces the damage is really rocketing, the Shards become more powerful in late game with their constant x2 damage / skull's value multiplier. When the price is reasonable, i.e. the damage gain after the Shard is crafted is greater than the damage loss and the recovery time of orbs is not too long, the Shards should be crafted directly, otherwise only by crafting Splinters.
2 Mega Cube Mega Cube Increases damage per white orb. We should balance the amount of Mega Cubes owned with Pearl Necklace Pearl Necklaces. Note that sensible amount of Pearl Necklaces is always limited.
3 Pearl Necklace Pearl Necklace Increases our skill duration. Does great job on active playing. The Must Have is 59 of Pearl Necklaces to have constantly active Sloth's Form. The Nice to have number is 108 which allows us to have every skill active constantly. Due to Crunchy Candy Cookie Crunchy Candy Cookie these numbers can be reduced by 3 and 6 respectively.
4 Elixir of Madness Elixir of Madness
Death Mason Jar Death Mason Jar
Both are the components required to craft additional splinters which greatly increase damage/income.
5 Ectoplasmprism Ectoplasm Prism Prisms are used to craft many powerful items, e.g. Fortune Shard Fortune Shards, Mayhem Shard Mayhem Shards, War splinter War Splinters and many more. It takes 40h in Arcane Laboratory to craft it so we should always craft it if we don`t have anything above! Sometimes its worth to prioritize Ectoplasm Prism to get Fortune or Mayhem Shard quicker.
6 Chaos crest Chaos Crest Increases white orbs income. Note: Chaos gem Chaos Gem is not really worth crafting due to Ectoplasmcube Ectoplasm Cube being among its requirements.
7 Squid Stone Squid Stone Cooperates nicely with Pearl Necklace Pearl Necklace. Underestimated item that may massively increase skull income. Don't build more than 6 for efficiency.
8 King's Collar King's Collar It may seem that Squid's Teddy Bear Squid's Teddy Bear is better in late game due to Pasta Fury skill but experience proves that the price difference makes King's Collar more efficient.

Note: Why not build more than 6 Squid Stone Squid Stones?
Building 6 more Squid Stones will increase income by x2), same as a Greed shard Greed Shard. It would require the same amount of craft time. So the cost will be more or less the same as building a Greed Shard but the Shard can be changed into something more powerful.

Hell Edit
