More Info Here about Homestead 1. How to get in to your homestead At the bottom right hand corner of your screen (the third button in) is your homestead button.
The Homestead interface at the top left of the screen. Once inside, your character's Health and Mana bars will be replaced by the Homestead interface. If you wish to see your character's interface you can click on the small arrow at the top left of the Homestead interface.
In the Homestead's interface you can see your Homestead's level, experience, Prosperity, Cleanness and energy. Below you have three buttons with the names M, Q and E. Clicking on E will allow you to exit the Homestead. Q will bring up the Homestead quest log. M will bring up the management window.
The Homestead management window. In the management window you can see the values of your Homestead. When the Homestead has enough experience to level up, the Up button will light up and clicking it will bring your Homestead to the next level(WARNING DO NOT CLICK THE UP BUTTON TO FAST OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE YOUR FREE ELYSIUM SHARTER AT HOMESTEAD LVL 2). The Homestead will not level up automatically. If you do not manually click the Up button, the Homestead will continue to accumulate experience without leveling up.
Underneath the resources you have Four options.
Settings Settings allows you to control who can enter your Homestead and whether you want to allow your spouse to manage your Homestead. In the settings you can also re-name your Homestead by using a Bloom Whisper Stone which you can get in the donation shop/vote shop.
Construction allows you to customize your Homestead. It has its own interface.
The Codex opens up a the list of craft-able Homestead items. Here you can find information for each craft-able item such as what level Workshop and what mastery is required to obtain their recipes, the amount of materials they need and what is their Prosperity range. The Codex is also used for setting Valuable Assets for Prosperity or for finding Contractors for specific items by clicking on Search Contractor at the bottom right of the Codex interface.
Manage allows you to kick unwanted players who are currently in your Homestead.
Higher Prosperity gives your Homestead more energy, allowing you to craft more items daily, or items that require a high amount of energy. It also unlocks higher tier Collection quests which are necessary for farming grade 17 weapons.
You can gain Prosperity by crafting items from different categories. Each item offers a random amount of Prosperity out of its Prosperity range. You can assign different items as Valuable Assets to raise or lower your Prosperity. Click M at the top left and open the Codex. Here you can select an item for each category and set it as a Valuable Asset. You can only get Prosperity for one item per category. You cannot change Valuable Assets during the time that you have a Contract up.
Cleanness allows your Homestead facilities to work, and if it reaches 0 your facilities will stop producing Cerise Gems and materials. Cleanness can be restored by using Cerise Gems, coins or a combination of the two. You can do this by clicking M in the Homestead interface and then "Add" next to Cleanness in the management window. Your Homestead will lose a certain amount of Cleanness every day after the server resets. If your Homestead has high Prosperity, then more Cerise Gems or coins will be required to restore it.
Homestead energy is required for crafting items. When the energy runs out, you can no longer craft items in your own Homestead. The energy resets every day at 00:00 server time.
The Homestead Facilities are buildings with different functions that help your Homestead grow. With these you can level up the Homestead, craft items and complete quests to farm grade 17 weapon materials.
Harvesting Fragrance Garden and Charger's Paradise are important facilities that produce Cerise Gems. You can plant seeds in the garden, and place animals in the paradise. After a certain amount of time passes, which is dependent on which type of seeds and animals were used, you can harvest. After harvesting you will gain Homestead experience, and Cerise Gems.
Cerise gems are essential for the Homestead. They are used for cleaning, for refreshing Collection quests and for recharging the material facilities. The current number of Cerise Gems is displayed at the top left of the screen.
Higher level animals and seeds give better experience, and more Cerise Gems. You can level up your Fragrance Garden and Charger's Paradise to get even more experience and Cerise Gems per harvest. This will become important at higher Homestead levels when larger amounts of Cerise Gems will be required.
The Heavenly Creation Workshop and the Wonder Market are the facilities from which you can craft items. The Heavenly Creation Workshop is for crafting items related to your Workshop's mastery. The Wonder Market is for crafting trees, flowers and trophy statues.
In order to craft an item you need to obtain the item's recipe, materials and Homestead energy, all of which will be consumed once the item has been crafted.
After you level up your Workshop to level 2, you have to choose a mastery. Regardless of what you choose, you will never be able to craft everything you need. This makes it important to work together with other players that have a different mastery than you.
You can reset your Workshop's mastery by using an Artisan Heart Stone from the donation shop, but you will lose all of the recipes of your previous mastery.
Workshop Masteries: • Construction can craft from categories: Wall, Door, Scene, and Facility. • Decoration can craft from categories: Art, Decor, Relief, Paint, and Hanging. • Furniture can craft from categories: Bed, Shelf, and Table. • Handcraft can craft from categories: Carve, View, Lamp, and Interior.
You can place a contract in your Workshop and other players can come into your Homestead and craft it. This way players can craft items even if they don't have the recipes. When players craft items from your Homestead, you gain Homestead experience and your Homestead energy will be consumed, but it consumes the other player's materials.
You can place a contract by clicking on your Workshop, choose Contract, choose the recipe you wish to contract, click Add, choose price and amount and then click Confirm.
The Galleries are facilities the produce materials (resources) which are required for crafting items. The Galleries will only produce materials for as long as they have been fueled with Cerise Gems. They can be filled for up to 36 hours. You can refill them any time you want as long you have Cerise Gems. The amount of materials the buildings generate depends on their level. Higher level Gallries require more Cerise Gems.
You can see your materials displayed at the top of the screen in this order (from left to right): • Cerise Gem • Jadestone from the Jewel Gallery • Deity Wood from the Void Workshop • Transition Crystal from the Curio Gallery • Brocade from the Fashion Gallery
Homestead quest log. Homestead Quests are daily and have their own separate quest log. Press the Q at the top left corner of your Homestead interface to bring up the Homestead quest log.
