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.
Item Prioritization Edit
Before reading the following, please consult Item Stacking section under Game Mechanics page for a brief explanation on diminishing returns.
The following list is based on opinions and may not reflect your personal views.
|1||Power Potion||Component required to craft Pearl Necklaces, Chaos Crests and additional War Splinters.|
|2||Death Chalice||Component required to craft Squid Stones and additional Greed Splinters.|
|3||Stone Tablet||Can be used to craft Power Cubes and Pearl Necklaces.|
In early game this item has the highest priority
|4||Magic Ring||Component required to craft Pearl Necklaces, Chaos Crests and many other items.|
|5||Zombie Horde's Eye||Component required to craft Chaos Crests.|
|6||Squid's Teddy Bear||Increases DPS of the second strongest monster in the game and is a component required to craft Squid Stones|
|7||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 Forge#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:
- Click to defeat the first stage and yield enough skulls to upgrade Bob to level 2 and buy a Zombie Horde.
- Wait while Bob sleeps (assuming you have the Power Potions) and upgrade the Zombie Horde to level 50, getting the 5% skull bonus.
- Upgrade the Zombie Horde as quickly possible and complete the first 4 areas (through difficulty 70).
- Fight the Rock Golem and take the blue chest.
- Go through the time portal.
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).
Increasing Speed for Low Level Locations Edit
When clearing low-level areas, your DPS should be way above the building health. Therefore, the rate of destroying buildings would be limited be the building respawn delay. However, tapping can reduce such delay to almost instant, allowing quicker progression. Using Sloth's Form have the same effect.

|1|| War Shard|
|Though, at the beginning, due to 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||Increases damage per white orb. We should balance the amount of Mega Cubes owned with pearl necklaces. Note that sensible amount of Pearl Necklaces is always limited.|
|3||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.|
|4|| Elixir of Madness|
Death Mason Jar
|Both are the components required to craft additional splinters which greatly increase damage/income.|
|5||Ectoplasm Prism||Prisms are used to craft many powerful items, e.g. Fortune Shards, Mayhem Shards, 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||Increases white orbs income. Note that due to Ectoplasm Cube among requirements and not too impressive income its not really worth to craft Chaos Gem.|
|7||Squid Stone||Cooperates nicely with Pearl Necklace. Underestimated item that may massively increase skull income.|
|8||King's Collar||It may seem that 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.|
