has changed the way that you build everything in the game. It still has a heavy building component but definitely focuses more on quests and exploration than grinding out products for every new person.
You become a Wandelier who is the newest in a line of magical wand carriers. The Wandeliers were magicians who used the power of their wands to build everything in the kingdom. Many years have passed, and those who once wielded the wand have moved on, or grown too old to carry on. Your task, as the newest Wandelier, is to visit all of the lands under King Roland and take care of all of the areas that are falling apart. It is also your job to help those who ask things of you. There are several islands that fall under King Roland's domain and each has a unique theme such as Cowboy Junction, Nature Preserve, Rocket Reef, and others.
You still use essences to build everything. Essences come from many different places and represent specific areas of interest. This is really hard to portray without having the game in front of you, but you collect these essences and use them to build objects in the game. When you are tasked with building something from someone, they will have a specific number of essence requirements for you to fill. These areas of interest, such as outdoors or happy, have essences associated with them. If you add an essence from that group, you fulfill the interest area for the thing you're building. Last thing is manna. This is the energy that you use to actually build things. You can find and collect raw manna from many different places. Or, you can convert surplus essences into manna.
So how do you know what you are building? You will be provided with scrolls that have a specific number of essences requested to unlock the scroll. Once you gather the needed essences and unlock the scroll, you are rewarded with items that you can add to your available build inventory. For example, you get a scroll for the party pack. You collect the essences you need and unlock the scroll. Now that the scroll is unlocked, you have new items you can use when you build. In this example, we get a picnic basket, balloons, and a set of paints that add the "fun" interest to anything we paint it on. I can now use these items when I build something I have been requested to build from an inhabitant.
You are not alone on your journey this time. You are joined by your companions, Buddy and Lindsay. Lindsay performs a very important roll for you. She collects the scrolls you are given and holds on to the magic bag that converts the surplus essences into manna. Once you unlock the scrolls, she adds the power to your wand. It is important to keep your manna up and keep plenty of the essences you find in your inventory. You can find essences by growing them on trees and plants, finding them in the ground with your detector, mining for them with a pick, or fishing for them. The work of a Wandelier is never done, so stay busy.
