Nugget #2 - Expanding
The game has one unofficial goal that all of you must perform: expanding. To build a sound economy and be able to tackle the more advanced quests and adventures, you must grow your real estate. This go through a rather resource intensive process.
Alternative view: The Glimmer Forest Expansion Map
The current known expansion plots are:
The full in game map:
Expanding the dominion is a resource intensive labor; especially the plots requiring expansion permits. Each expansion permit can be obtained with 30 trade tickets, and each explorer permit can be obtained with 5 expansion permits / 150 trade tickets. Those are by far the most time and resource consuming elements. All resources mapped per plot:
There is no best strategy. However, to speed up your expansion you better:
- Expend concentric around the start zone. The plots closer to the center of the forest require fewer resources.
- Follow the main plots and expend in direction of the special features. Do them in the main storyline order!
- Do the expansion permit plots last, go for those with the fewer permits first.
It is important to have as much as possible real estate, rather than expanding in one direction; focus on the cheapest plot you can access.
From time to time when expanding, the plot closes when all resources are given. The game makes a resynch and you cannot access the plot anymore. Just force-close the game and restarts it. The plot should be accessible again; eventually you need to adjust the RP amount. The coins, lanterns and permits are not lost.

hi ms. Shibuya, tks for yr nuggets, i've put it in mems (:
however, there is smth strange in Q9, i guess we sd mark it in the map somehow :
i've checked in my 50lvl nbrs lands too, it' far from expanded space, but it's there!
Yes in Q9 there is a shrine. It is still a closed plot. Once we reach it t will be a cyan spot. Until then it remains grayed out.
Maybe you can put the dome on a grey plot? So everybody knows that something is there, but that we cant't expand to it yet.
Thanks for the great map!
I don't have a nice graphic of it. And I was too lazy to carve it our with Photo shop. Otherwise I would have added it.

i know ist to late for us to do that, but some of the new ones could post...
Once I sought about it, but too bothersome. Also not sure of the added value. The general case is a bunch of trees, a rock/iron pile and some grass. I take it as granted that you get some stuff to clear after opening.
