Explorer Career Guide
By: E

Explorer is classified as a Newbie career, because all new players should start here. It is essential for providing raw materials to Herbalists, Construction Workers, Blacksmiths, Tailors, Crafters, and Cooks. Each individual villager can explore 20 times an hour, unless they are wearing one of four Costumes granting +5 turns.

Aquatic Costume | Fluffy Costume | Sorcerer Costume | Classic Cartoon Costume

Outfits and Keepsakes can provide extra turns if they are Buffed for this career. Each villager can equip up to 6 of each.

Interactive events with village-specific locations, Wheels, Cards, and various NPCs are offered year-round. They have a variety of effects including taking away the rest of your turns, granting you extra FC, granting you extra turns, restoring all of your turns, granting you items, and doing nothing.

The Gemstone Cave is an event that can grant you a Gem Raptor Morphing Potion.

There are also limited time explorer events that are standalone or correspond with other events on site.

During Tigereye Peak's Snow Festival spanning Dec 14-29, 2016, Explorers from all villages had the chance to find snow fairies while exploring.

Fairies were obtained from the Explorer and Warrior careers. The chance of finding them began with a 20% drop rate, decreasing by 1% with every fairy found to a 1% drop rate. This reset at the beginning of the next day.

2931-snow-festival-plush-fairy.png2937-snow-festival-feast-fairy.png

Snow Festival 2017 introduced two new fairies: Plush and Feast. The Candle Fairy did not drop this year. The chance of finding fairies was changed to reset every even hour.

4142-snow-festival-sticker-fairy.png4143-snow-festival-snow-pet-fairy.png

Snow Festival 2018 introduced two new fairies: Sticker and Snow Pet. The Candle Fairy returned while the Candy Cane Fairy disappeared.

Snow Festival 2019 saw the disappearance of the Candle Fairy again. What will next year bring?

In April 2017, swarms of Buzzes and Ladybirds emerged following the introduction of events.

An encounter with a swarm granted you one Buzz or Ladybird and took away one Exploration turn.

In May 2017, Olde Foxbury hosted its first Jousting Tournament. Users could move to Olde Foxbury for free to participate in the special exploration encounters with NPCs of the event to receive their plushes.
