The Inventive Update, released on 9/23/2015 brings to Golden Frontier a “timed mission”, quests, A Laboratory, and several new recipes to craft as well as a special new way to get materials… Explosives!!! The Eagles are flying and we also build an Academy in this exciting new update!
Quest information <———- Click here!
Building Stages of the Laboratory
Building the Academy
Be sure you are following the quests, because there is a 2 week timed mission that will start after completing the Progress of Science Quest! Once the clock starts ticking, there is no stopping it! ( you do NOT have to fill the first level of the Academy right away… you can craft your items first and build them up!)
Here are the new recipes
Workshop: Golden Frontier Ruler Recipe
Smithy: Golden Frontier Screwdriver Recipe
Golden Frontier Gear Recipe
Golden Frontier Retort Recipe
Golden Frontier Scales Recipe
Golden Frontier Dynamite Recipe ( will unlock after you finish the First stage of the Academy)
Quarry: Golden Frontier Nitre Recipe
The Eagles are now flying… If you purchased an eagle with “shares”, before the update, they walked around…but now they look beautiful in flight. When it’s time to collect, they return to their new nest.
The Academy is similar to the Cave but much easier to accomplish. As you finish the levels, you collect the rewards, and move on to the next step. Note: As soon as you complete the First Reward, you will start the 2 week timed goal. If you want to, you can build more than 1 Laboratory… I built 4 of them…. But because we will be able to craft dynamite, I chose to build that many. Since the dynamite will collect 40 resources at a time, it will be 40 less energy needed to acquire the same amount! Note: at this time, the Academy is not repeatable. Once you are finished with all 3 levels you cannot start over from the beginning.
1st level of the Academy: Dynamite Invention
2nd Level of the Academy: Nobel Prize
3rd level of the Academy: Airship Invention
Rewards from the Academy
Gold, Silver and Bronze Chests
Gold Chest rewards
Silver Chest rewards
Bronze Chest rewards
The Scientist Rewards (collect every 8 hours)
Airship Rewards (collect every 12 hours)
Fun with explosives! After you finish the 1st level of the Academy, you will be able to craft Dynamite… and then use it to blow up trees and rocks. Use it to “harvest” up to 40 resources at a time! ( Does NOT work on Gold Nuggets. ) Harvesting 40 resources with Dynamite will save you 40 Energy!!
Note: if you have more than 40 resources in the staging area you will not collect them… they disappear and do NOT go into inventory, so be careful how you choose to use your Dynamite!
