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, Properity, 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.

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. 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.

Below your Homestead values, you can see your resources and the Exchange button which allows you to trade materials at a 1:2 ratio. This is useful for when you're running low on certain materials but have an excess of others and want to craft an item.

Underneath the resources you have five options.

Settings[edit | edit source]

Settings allow 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 from the Boutique. A free Bloom Whisper Stone is given to players after completing the initial Homestead quests.

Construction[edit | edit source]

Construction allows you to customize your Homestead. It has its own interface.

Codex[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

Manage allows you to kick unwanted players who are currently in your Homestead.

Upload allows you to display your Homestead in the Homestead Ranks. This creates a copy of your current Homestead and players from other servers can visit it. You can display your Homestead for a minimum of 7 days or a maximum of 30 days.

Prosperity[edit | edit source]

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 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.

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, Cerise Gems and Minion pouches.

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, more Cerise Gems, and better Minion pouches. 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.

You can buy the standard seeds and animals from the NPC Vyn Ren at West Archosaur near the Apothecary. Higher level seeds and animals can be obtained from Uncharted Paradise and Dawnlight Halls.

Workshop Mastery[edit | edit source]

After you level up your Workshop to level 2, you have to choose a mastery. This will decide which recipes you can obtain from your daily Delivery quests. 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 Boutique, but you will lose all of the recipes of your previous mastery.

  • Furniture can craft from categories: Bed, Shelf, and Table.
  • Handcraft can craft from categories: Carve, View, Lamp, and Interior.

Contracts[edit | edit source]

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.

Resources[edit | edit source]

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

Cornucopia[edit | edit source]

You can obtain a Cornucopia for your Homestead by taking the quest from the NPC Gold Bowl of Wonder at West Archosaur. This gives you a recipe to craft it. Enter your Homestead and right click the recipe in your inventory. You can now craft the Cornucopia at your Wonder Market.

From the same NPC, you can buy different types Red Envelopes. By placing Red Envelopes with your coin or Gold in the Cornucopia, other players can enter your Homestead and pick up an envelope with a random amount of coin or Gold. As an example, if you placed 20,000,000 coins and 50 Red Envelopes, the first player that picks up an envelope will get a random amount between 1 coin and 19,999,999 coins. Each player can only pick once. The last player that picks up a envelope will always get the remaining coins.
