After you have created your villager, one of the first things you can do is choosing its career. Careers are very important in the world of Furvilla, they provide you with a wide variety of items you can use in a lot of different ways.
Each career has a career type, also known as career level. These types are a way of determining how hard the career is and how much the career relies on other careers. The higher the level of your career, the more it relies on other careers to provide them with the needed items.
Furvilla has four different types of careers:
Newbie - It is highly recommended for new players to start out with this career, as this career does not rely on other careers.
Basic (Level 1) - Basic careers need no other careers to start out, but will need one other career to be able to excel in them.
Intermediate (Level 2) - Intermediate careers provide the items that are needed for artisan careers to produce their final products.
Artisan (Level 3) - Artisan careers almost completely rely on other careers to provide them with the items they need for their products.
As you might already have noticed, it is wise to start out with a newbie career and slowly work your way up to the basic career, then the intermediate career and after that the artisan career.
Your villager's career can be changed once every two hours. To change your villager’s career you need to go to their career page and click on the top right button that says ‘change career’. This button will bring you to a new page, displaying all available careers.
You will have to click on the Select career button to select the career you wish for your villager to occupy. If there is no 'select career' button next to a career, your villager is already in that career! All careers that are not faded out are careers your villager already has some experience in.
Please note that when changing your career you won’t lose any experience, skill or items the villager had in their previous career, you will be able to change back to their old career and just continue where you left off!
A villager can only switch careers if they are not busy. This means your villager can't switch careers when they are for example crafting an item: you will only be able to switch careers once the villager has finished their current task.
A villager can only learn up to four careers. If you wish to start a new career but have already hit the maximum of four careers, you are able to unlearn a career. Keep in mind that you will lose all experience your villager has in the career you are unlearning: this action can't be undone!
Career Influences Chart
[Chart looks a bit blurry and stuff, but I looked at the size of the current Furvilla database and it should fit perfectly there! (: erase this part if article is added!]
The above chart shows you more about the influences each career has on other careers. We will be breaking down every career into different sections so you have easy access to what each career provides to other careers and what they need to do so.
