Tips & Tricks to Playing Misty Continent: Cursed Island
It can be really challenging to play Misty Continent: Cursed Island if you’re a new player who has only begun to learn the ropes. There are many ways you can win and even more ways you can lose. The game has a high learning curve but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to do better the next time you play a game in a similar genre. However, we don’t expect you to learn everything without a few tips and tricks that will set you on the right path toward becoming one of the best players in the game!
Misty Continent: Cursed Island has a lot of gameplay features that can end up being confusing if you’re a beginner who’s simply trying to keep up with the pace of the game. BlueStacks has prepared many guides on this title and we recommend that you check all of those out if you’re having a tough time managing your estate. In this guide, we’ll be showing some of the best tips and tricks that we’ve asked veteran players to help beginners get the best possible start by taking advantage of every available bonus.
Dailies refer to the tasks and missions that you can do on a daily basis. Daily missions are important because they give rewards such as speedups and resources that can prove to be really useful if you’re trying to progress faster in the game. While it can be tedious to complete it all the time, we recommend reaching the 100% mark every day because the loot that you get from there is extremely useful. It will only take about an hour or so every day if you’re dedicated to playing the game.
Other dailies include consuming daily attempts like fighting NPCs in the overworld or doing event missions. You can also claim rewards in the event tabs or the VIP tab. There are many things that the player can claim and even though some of them only give a small number of bonuses, they are still good to have.
Use Your Speedups
Speedups are an extremely valuable resource because it allows the player to skip the annoying wait time required for an action to finish. There are different types of speedups but we can narrow it down to general speedups and exclusive speedups. The general and construction speedups are the most valuable because it’s more important to have a structure completed immediately so that it can perform its function right away rather than waiting for a few minutes or hours for it to finish.
Players can get speedups by doing dailies and attacking NPCs or as rewards for missions. Don’t be afraid to consume speedups, especially as a beginner because you want your estate to reach a decent point rather than waiting for the short countdown timers to finish. The only time you shouldn’t use your speedup is when you’re upgrading something that has a long countdown timer and you’re planning to take a break. This is especially true when you’re about to sleep for the night.
Keep the Estate Busy
Keeping the estate busy means having all of your workers, construction queues, research queues, and training facilities working at all times. As a player in Misty Continent: Cursed Island, you never want to get left behind in terms of progression because other players might get the idea of trying to attack you while they are ahead. The best way to avoid that is to power-up your estate and make sure that your power value is above the average margin to discourage players from thinking that you’re weak.
Players need to constantly have their workers busy working at all times. The most important queue that you want to fill up is the training facilities because military strength is one of the sectors that other players will be cautious about when trying to attack another player. We’ve talked about this in detail in our Military Guide, so check that out if you have time. In addition, make sure that you’re always researching something so that you don’t end up getting too many backlogs as you upgrade the research lab.
Send Your Army Out!
Sending your army out to the world to fight against NPCs and other players should be one of your priorities as a player. There are some resources in the game that can’t be produced and will only be available when the player procures them manually. One of these includes Planks, which players can usually get by gathering trees around their estate, but as you spend more time in the game, you’ll eventually consume all of the trees and other sources of planks. Luckily, players can get planks by dealing with Threats in the overworld.
Players are basically required to send their army out to gather these resources regularly. Unfortunately, players only have a limited number of times they can send their troops to march on a specific location and will need to replenish that energy by either waiting for a specific amount of time or purchasing more energy using diamonds. It’s a good idea to consume all of your energy every day and wait for the next day to refresh it so that you never run out of resources to upgrade structures.
Join an Alliance
Joining an alliance is one of the most important tips for survival in Misty Continent: Cursed Island. Players can join alliances where a group of players will be able to assist each other both in the development of their individual estates and in military skirmishes. Being in a well-known alliance is basically insurance that other players, no matter how powerful they are, will stay away from you because they don’t want to risk the entire alliance’s forces to retaliate against them.
It’s a good idea for a player to join an active alliance, especially one that is in the top 15 of the server rankings. This is to ensure that you enjoy all the benefits of being in an alliance since all of the members are actively contributing to the cause. Once you’ve picked the right alliance to join, make sure to accept their invitation for you to teleport to their location so that they can protect you from external threats.
