After we tried out the voxel MMORPG from Trion Worlds, Trove, we thought it was good fun. Today we will be helping out new players by giving you a quick guide on how to get your cornerstone up and running, and a place you can be proud of.
For those not in the know, a Cornerstone is your home in the Trove universe. They can be moved throughout the world at will whenever you venture into a new area. This means that your creations will follow you through the game, so you don’t have to worry about losing your base after working hard to make it look awesome, and it’s perfectly fine to leave it to clear dungeons and explore the world.
First of all, you need to find a suitable plot to start building on. All you have to do is walk up to the spot where you’d like your creation be and push the “D” button on your keyboard. You get given a pre-built little house to start off with, but you can customize it to your heart’s content.
One of the main benefits of having a cornerstone is the ability to keep crafting benches in it. The benches let you do all sorts of useful things in the Trove universe. The Adventurer’s Crafting Bench and the Builder’s Crafting Bench are two that you should focus on getting first, and here’s why:
Adventurer’s Crafting Bench
This is the bench that lets you build loads of important and useful things to help you on your way in Adventure More. With this bench, you can craft a Class Changer, which is useful for switching between classes on-the-fly, without having to head back to the hub world.
One of the most important things that the Adventurer’s Crafting Bench gives you, is the ability to craft a Forge. The Forge is probably the most useful item you can keep in your cornerstone as it lets you upgrade all of the gear and loot you find to make it even stronger. This lets you fight tougher and more dangerous enemies without having to find new gear.
Builder’s Crafting Bench
This is the bench that you want to craft if you’re interested in making a cool looking cornerstone. With the Builder’s Crafting Bench you can craft yourself a Workbench. Workbenches are great for those that like making impressive creations and awesome houses. The Workbench lets you craft decorations and special blocks for your cornerstone, so you can give your creation an edge over the competition.
Trove is a social game at its heart, which is another reason that the Builder’s Crafting Bench is useful. It lets you craft a Club Card, which is what you need if you want to start a club with your friends. They can be quite pricey, but once you’ve got it up and running then you’ll have your own world to create and explore with your friends.
