    The information in the original FAQ has become a little lost as the thread got larger. I've decided to redo it and improve the layout.

    In the first post I am going to put a list of all the questions with a link to the answer. This will make it easy for people to scan and see if there question has already been asked and answered. In order to do this I will also only be putting 1 question and answer per post.

    I will close the thread and have a link to another thread where people can post questions that haven't already been answered. I'll then add the question and answer into this thread. (This is to keep the thread clean and easy to navigate).

    The Potion Shop is Locked by Goal. How do I get It?

    You need to expand to Ivy (the tree that looks like a lady). When you have expanded to her she will unlock the Potion Shop.

    Thanks to Dabag for the pictures below

    I just went up a level and it says I can get x building. When I try to buy it, it tells me I need to level up. Help

    There is a limit to the number of each type of building you can have per level. If you really want the new building you can sell one of the existing types.

    The types are Royal, Town, Resource, Crafting and Special. To see the different types of building go into the Market, click on Buildings then select the appropriate tab. This will show you all the buildings of that type.

    Resource buildings are limited to 2 of each type. Special resource buildings like reindeer stables, kingdom inns etc may be limited to buying one if you did not build one duri g the limited time events.

    Crafting buildings are also limited to 2 of each type with the exception of love shacks (no longer available) and tinker camps which are limited to 1.

    A monster appeared and I cannot defeat it as it is blocking the building I need to craft the sword/cleaver etc

    You have two options with this:
    1. Build another building that crafts the sword (if you can)
    2. Email support@teamlava.com with your ID, game and issue

    Why are all my neighbours maxed on gifts and why don't I get many gifts?

    The game is designed so that you can only send three gifts per day. If you try to send more than this the game will say that your neighbours are maxed.

    You will also see a message that your neighbours are maxed if they are maxed on the item (for some items like earth wisps this message appears when they have 80 or more in their inventory). Try sending them a different gift or go to their wall and ask them to use some of the items so you can gift them.

    With only three gifts/day they're pretty precious. Some people gift back in order, some people have agreements to only gift particular people in order. If you don't get too many gifts don't worry - most people are in the same boat. Treat any gift as a bonus.

    What happens if I decline a gift?

    If you decline a gift it doesn't go into your inventory, no message is sent to the sender, the sender cannot send another gift. You would only want to decline a gift if you regularly got 20 gifts a day (the max) and one of the items was something you didn't want. If you declined it and then someone send you another gift you would receive that gift.
