Default General Information, Registration & Account Management

General Information, Registration & Account Management

General Information

Welcome to SHAKES & FIDGET, a fantastic fantasy RPG set in a world of fantasy! You do not have to download any software but you can play the game right away in the browser of your choice, on Steam or on your Android or iOS device. The game is completely free to play and even ad-free if you disable the Flying Tube (in-game ad videos to gain Lucky Coins). Shakes & Fidget's development, support and server costs are funded through the in-game currency of Mushrooms (). You can buy them in-game to progress faster in less time. For example, you can get additional Thirst for Adventure to complete more Quests every day, spend them on items or skip the Countdown Timer in the Arena or in Dungeons.

Wanna read the latest Shakes & Fidget news and learn more about new content, worlds and events? Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!


Registration

What would a fantasy world jammed with monsters, dungeons, NPCs and lots of gold (everybody loves gold!) be without heroes? Now it's your turn to explore the wonderful but at times cruel world of Shakes & Fidget. Choose your class, choose your destiny and start your legacy!



The registration screen shows a selection of hero Classes: a Warrior, Mage, Scout, Assassin, Battle Mage and Berserker, each with strengths and weaknesses. Click a Class to display them!

Here's an overview:

Warrior: a heavily-armored tank with one weapon, usually a sword or an axe. Shield: 25% chance to block. Armor: 50% Damage Reduction.
Mage: a damage dealer with a magic wand. Armor: 10% Damage Reduction. A Mage's attacks cannot be evaded or blocked.
Scout: a swift hunter. Reflexes: 50% chance to evade. Armor: 25% Damage Reduction.
Assassin: a sneaky Class with two Warrior weapons. Strikes twice. Reflexes: 50% chance to evade. Armor: 25% Damage Reduction. Repels Fireballs.
Battle Mage: an armored Mage with a Warrior weapon. Fireball attack before the actual fight, Opponent loses up to 33% of Hit Points. Magic shield: 40% Damage Reduction. Armor: 10% Damage Reduction. Repels Fireballs.
Berserker: wears Warrior equipment but does not have a shield. Rage skill: gets an immediate additional attack with a 50% chance each. Armor: 25% Damage Reduction. Prone to Mages, suffering +100% more damage from them.

Please note that some of the chances are the maxed out ones. You start with less.

Pick your Class and click the continue button!



1: Now select your Race. Just like the Class every Race has its strengths and weaknesses too. These starting bonuses are not that important so rather pick what looks or fantasy lore you like best.

2: Select your gender. Next, either click the die icon to use random looks or click the pencil to customize how your alter ego should look like. Enter the name of your hero or click the die to use a random name. Hint: you can change your looks later on so it does not have to be perfect.

3: Select your world/server.


Account Management



1: Your list of heroes. Play as many as you would like but please note that each of them must be on a different server.

2: Click this button to create a new hero.

3: Import existing heroes and add them to Account Management.

4: Here you can change the order your heroes are displayed and delete heroes from Account Management or from the entire game. Warning: cannot be undone!

5: Wanna play a Character without storing login data? A friend wants to log in on your device? Click "Log in as guest".


How to save your Character and validate your account

When creating a new hero you play right away without having to enter an email address and password. Only at level 10 will you be prompted to validate your account. This should make the start of the game easier for new players.



Both in Account Management and the game a red exclamation mark next to your hero reminds you you haven't secured your account yet. If you would like to validate your account earlier or do something that requires a validated account (for example buying Mushrooms), click the bottom-left gear icon/Game Options or the red exclamation mark next to your Avatar, enter your email address and a password (or use Facebook) and select “Save character”.

Important note: if you created your account on other platforms (Steam, Android, iOS) your account is restricted to playing there. If you would like to play the browser version or on another device you need to set an email address first:

Default Tavern, City Guard & Arcane Toilet

Tavern, City Guard & Arcane Toilet

Tavern

After reading the introduction and creating your account it's time to actually PLAY the game! Here it starts...in the tavern! I can't think of a better place! Chatter, drink and rest, then start the next quest!



Input: via City screen // click menu button // press T key

1: Thirst for Adventure. This is your endurance bar which displays how many Quests you can do today as every Quest costs TfA points. The bar refreshes once a day at midnight (depending on your server).

2: The Quest giver offers you three Quests. Select one of them to gain XP, Gold, Honor and sometimes an Item, a Mushroom or other rewards. Every Quest reduces your Thirst for Adventure depending on the Quest duration. Want to travel faster? Visit the Stable and lease a Mount.

3: Click the Barkeeper to drink Beers, up to 11 a day. By doing so you can use up to 300 Thirst for Adventure instead of the default 100. Moreover, the Barkeeper also tells you if there is a Weekend Event.

4: Visit the Gambler to play a game of luck and win or lose Gold and Mushrooms. Use the sliders to place your bet or open the chat and enter /gold bet x or /mushroom bet x to bet an amount of x.

5: Daily Missions! Too tired, too lazy or too busy? We don't care. There's always more to do! Click the wanted poster to check out your Daily Mission. Complete it for some extra XP! Level 10 required. Not available during Weekend Events.


6: Go upstairs to visit the Arcane Toilet. Level 100 required.

7: City Guard. Monster slayer, treasure hunter...still in need of Gold? Get a new job and work as a City Guard!

Hint: red Quests are more difficult but the rewards a better.

Hint: during Happy Hour you can spend 1 to skip the Countdown Timer of a Quest. Some servers have Happy Hour between 11 pm and midnight whereas others have it all day long.

Hint: if your Backpack is full you cannot get an Item as Quest reward.

Hint: every completed Quest rewards you with 10 Honor.


City Guard



Input: click NPC (Tavern) // press Z key

Use the slider to set how many hours you would like to work! You have to complete your job though. Tell them five hours are ok, then stop after two? No way!
Get even more Gold during our Gold Events. We have them every few weeks on Saturday and Sunday. Important: your work has to end on Sunday (server time, not your local time!) to get the extra gold bonus! If it ends on Monday you only get the normal reward.




Arcane Toilet



Input: click Toilet window (Tavern) // press T key twice
Required: Level 100+

What's more epic and heroic than spending time in a Tavern Toilet? If your level is 100 or higher and you've already found the Toilet Key on your Quests you can click the Toilet window in tavern and enter the Arcane Toilet.
Most heroes usually hoard tons of useless things in their Backpacks and the best place for their stuff is...the Toilet.

1: Into the Toilet!

2: Mana tank

3: Aura

You can sacrifice Items to the Gods by throwing them in the Arcane Toilet. As a result, the Toilet's Mana Tank increases once per day. Hover your mouse over the Tank to display the amount of mana points required to flush the Toilet.

As soon as the Mana Tank is full, you can pull the chain to flush the Toilet and receive a new random Item or even one of the special Toilet epics. In addition, your Aura increases by 1, up to level 66. Aura improves your reputation in the Shops: the higher your Aura, the better Items you are offered by the merchants.

Although the Toilet's Mana Tank increases only once per day you can still sacrifice any number of Items. The Gods are merciful and they immediately give an Item back for each sacrifice they receive. Such Items are not generated for your Class but for your Followers in the Tower because the Gods have a heart of Gold for these little helpers.

Hint: once an Item has been in the Toilet you cannot sell it anymore. The Blacksmith will still dismantle it though. He just doesn't care.

Hint: if you sacrifice an Item and receive both Mana Points and a new Item, you don't get Mana Points for the new Item the next day again!

Hint: the Gods prefer Epic Items! Standard Item: 25 Mana points, Epic Item: 50 points, Potions: 10 points. The points required to flush the Toilet increase with each flush.

Hint: if a sacrifice exceeds the Mana Tank's current maximum the remaining points are lost.

Default Arena & Arena Manager

Arena & Arena Manager

Arena

Mercyless one on one battles for honor! Show the world how strong you really are!



Input: via City screen // click menu button // press A key // click medal (Arena Manager)

Enter the Arena to fight against other players. Select one of three suggestions and accept the challenge in the popup window.
If you win you are rewarded with Honor and Gold (and even XP, up to ten times a day). Moreover, you also get Scrapbook stickers of your Opponent's Items if you don't already have them.
You can manually choose any Opponent in the Hall of Fame but with no XP reward.
You can save fights by ticking the box in the fight window. You can watch saved fights again in the Battles tab of your Mail.

Hint: an Arena fight is free every 10 minutes. If you are that kind of brawler and feel the urge to cause some more trouble you need 1 for each additional fight.

Hint: if the Honor gap between you and your Opponent is too high you won't win or lose anything.


Arena Manager

Fighting is cool, but smart people let others do the dirty work and earn money safely.



Input: click menu button twice // press A key twice // click medal (Arena)
Required: Level 105+

1: Your Money

2: Your Runes

3: Objects you can build

4: Multiplicator

5: Sacrifice button

6: Merchant

Your goal is to build a prosperous Arena first, then sacrifice everything for runes and start from scratch.

You start your journey with a small arena with nothing at all but some cheap seats. They generate Money (1) every few seconds, even when you are not logged in to the game. After collecting some Money you can upgrade your seats for a higher income per time unit or build something else (3), for example a parking lot, a popcorn stand or even traps and straying monsters to spice the Arena fights up for your audience.

Becoming rich doesn’t mean you have to do a lot. Just use the “X1 button” in the top-right corner (4) to switch the multiplicator between X1, X10, X25 and X100 for raising your upgrades more quickly.

Once a day, a merchant (6) pays you a visit and offers his boosts with a permanent effect on your arena. Every day, when you start the game, the merchant will be available for two hours only and you will be able to spend on his special deals. The arena button is flashing during his stay. Hover your mouse over an offer to display the description. Not only does the 2 hour countdown of the merchant start when you start playing Shakes & Fidget but also the 20-hour countdown when he will show up with new boosts on the next day.

There are speed (adds moving bars to the progress bar) and money boosts (adds a golden effect) and specials to skip time (24 hours, 3 days, 7 days). Upgrading everything with speed and money boosts unlock platinum boosts that produce twice as much as golden upgrades and four times as much as normal ones.

The more attractive and exciting your Arena, the higher your income!
Once satisfied with your money, click the Sacrifice button to sacrifice everything (yes, your whole Arena Manager progress – objects and Money!) for Runes. You only keep your Runes and boosts from the Merchant.

“Why should I sacrifice everything?” you may ask. First, Runes have a lasting effect as your Money income is increased by +5% per Rune. Second, after collecting 1,000+ Runes you unlock Rune enchantments in the shops. The more Runes you have, the higher the bonus of an enchantment.

Here's the list of runes in the game. They can appear on any item with the exception of damage runes that are restricted to weapons. Runes of the same type add up* and are capped at a certain maximum.

XP for quests, max. +10%
Gold for quests, max. +50%
Chance of epics (shops), max. +50%
Improved item quality, max. 5
Hit points, max. +15%
Fire damage, max. +60%
Cold damage, max. +60%
Lightning damage, max. +60%
Fire resistance, max. +75%
Cold resistance, max. +75%
Lightning resistance, max. +75%
Total resistance, max. +25% per item, up to +75% for all items

Hint: Elemental damage is percentual damage based on your normal damage and elemental resistance reduces the elemental damage from runes percentually.

For example, if you deal 100k damage in a fight round and your weapon has a +10% fire damage rune, your total damage is 110k. Now your opponent's resistance comes into play. Let's assume he/she has a total of 15% fire resistance. Your opponent suffers 100k damage from your normal damage but only 85% of your fire damage because of his/her fire resistance of 15%. Therefore, you deal a total damage of 108,500 hit points (of course further reduced by his/her armor).

Therefore, your elemental damage is NOT neutralized if the opponent's resistance has a higher value than your elemental damage!

* if your ring has a gold bonus of +10% and your helmet has another +5%, you have a total bonus of +15%.

Default Weapon Shop & Blacksmith

Weapon Shop & Blacksmith

Weapon Shop

Wandering in the wilderness naked is definitely back to nature but not recommended. Every hero needs good equipment! As you can't loot it all merchants come in handy.



Input: via City screen // click menu button // press W key

1: The Obscure Pommel that opens a shortcut to the Blacksmith.

Visit the Weapon Shop to buy weapons, hats, breastplates and shoes. They are randomly generated based on your Level and Aura (Arcane Toilet). Use drag and drop gestures or the right mouse button to buy, sell, equip and unequip Items.
The Shop is refreshed once a day. You can also spend 1 to immediately get new Goods.
You can also sell Items but keep in mind that sold Items will be lost and cannot be restored!


Blacksmith

Visit the Blacksmith and ask him to upgrade, modify or simply destroy your Items. You unlock him at Level 90 but of course only heroes with Pets can enter the smithy. That makes sense, right?



Input: via City screen // click Weapon Shop menu button twice // click Obscure Pommel in Weapon Shop // press W key twice
Required: Level 90+

The Blacksmith has a total of four actions that either cost or give you Metal and Arcane Resources. Use a drag and drop gesture or the right mouse button to use them.

List of actions:

1: Socket upgrade: adds a Gem Socket to any Items but Warrior shields or extracts the Gem from a Socketed Item and destroys the Item. The Gem is sent to your Backpack, ready to be used in a different Item.


2: Attribute upgrade: you can improve an Item up to 20 times. How many times an Item has already been improved is displayed in the popup when you hover your mouse over the Item.

3: Dismantling: dismantles (and destroys) an Item into a random number of Metal and Arcane Resources. This action can be used up to five times a day.
Hint: dismantling a Mage or Scout weapon adds twice as many Resources but counts as two actions. *

4: Change look: changes the look of an Item for 50 . You can select the look of any Epic already collected (Scrapbook) earlier in the game.

5: Your Metal Resources. Rock on!

6: Your Arcane Resources.

Hint: you gain a good amount of Metal and Arcance resources for selling upgraded Items in the Shops! Don't dismantle upgraded Items but sell them!

* added for balancing reasons (shield compensation and other Warrior-related weapon specifications)
