CHOOSING YOUR VILLAGE

One of the first things you'll be asked to do when you make your account is to choose a village. But what exactly does this mean?

This guide will explain the differences between villages, and what this choice means for you.

Villages have three main aspects that affect you as a player -- visual, social, and gameplay. There are five villages to choose from. Each village provides a unique overall experience while you play Furvilla, but no matter which you choose you’re sure to find something interesting to enjoy. However, if you end up wanting to spend some time in a different village, don’t worry; you’re always able to change which one you call home.

What are the visual aspects of village choice?

The village you choose affects several key visual aspects of the site. Once chosen, your homepage will serve as your Town Hall, and depict an image of your village’s unique shops. Your profile will display your village crest. Your username will also have a village-associated icon attached to it, which allows other players to easily see which village you’re in.

You will also have the option to change the site theme from the Furvilla Default to one featuring your village. To do so, first click "User Settings.” Then scroll down the page until you find the section labeled “Site Theme.” Select your desired theme from the dropdown menu, and finish by clicking “Save.”

What are the social aspects of village choice?

Each village comes with its own private forum and live chat room, which can both be accessed from either the main navigation bar, or under the Community section of your Town Hall home page. This lets you talk to other members of your village. Each village’s community depends on its users. Perhaps you’ll help organize some special events or games in your village? The possibilities are endless, and completely up to you! Don’t forget to say hi and introduce yourself to your neighbors!

What are the gameplay aspects of village choice?

Perhaps the most important feature of village choice is the gameplay aspect. Each village has access to different items, which affect how the different careers play. Here we’ll cover some of the most crucial differences.

The explorer career is one of the easiest places to see the variance between villages. Each village has a unique set of items that explores can find. These items tend to match with the general aesthetic of the village they’re found in, and are used to make rare items whose recipes originate from shops in the same town.

Each village has its own set of unique shops which sell wares exclusive to that town. Recipes that teach your villagers how to make things are sold in these shops, as well as some necessary components for making them. While villagers from any town can gain access to any of these items by buying them from other players, you will have easiest access to those that are native to your town. These affect careers like crafter, tailor, doctor, blacksmith, and alchemist. Crafters and tailors can buy blueprints and patterns for costumes native to their town. Doctors can buy recipes for medicines to cure diseases that villagers living in that town can catch. Blacksmiths can buy schemas to learn how to make that village’s native weapons and armor, and alchemists can buy recipes to make the town’s native potions.

When making rare items from your village, any recipe components that don’t originate from explorers or shops will come from warriors. Similarly to explorers, each village has a unique set of monsters for your warriors to fight, and these monsters drop a unique set of loot. If you want loot from other villages, you will have to buy them from other players.

Warriors will also have easiest access to armor and weapons from their own village, as that is what your blacksmiths will have the easiest time making. Each village’s equipment has an element type assigned to them, which make them stronger or weaker versus certain typed monsters. Villages also have unique advantages and drawbacks assigned to their native weapons and armor.

Villagers with the animal husbandry career can go out and collect animals that are unique to their village. You may buy pets native to other villages from other players, but your villagers will only have the chance to find animals that live where they do.

Construction workers are a bit of a special case. Each village has a unique type of wood, but construction workers may utilize any of them to build things. However, construction workers can only build houses from the village they are in, and villager slots can only be unlocked with a house from your own village.

How do I change villages?

So you’ve chosen your village, but for one reason or another you’re feeling the need to move. Not to worry! It’s easy to travel the world of Furvilla.

Simply click “User Settings” near the top of the page, then scroll down until you find the section labeled “Move Village.” Select your desired village from the dropdown menu, and finish by clicking “Save.”

Your first move is free, but further changes will cost 25,000 FurCash each. Once you’ve changed villages, your account will be placed on a cooldown and you will be unable to change again until the cooldown expires. You may move twice a month, as cooldowns expire on the 1st and the 15th of each month. Happy travels!


Now that you know what village choice is all about, it’s time to learn a bit about each of your options!
