Forge Ahead Game Guide, Tips, Cheats : –
Your goal in the Forge Ahead game is to become the best blacksmith in the town. Now and then, people from the town visit your armory shop to buy swords. They could demand a common sword/uncommon-sword, a rare quality sword or an ultra-rare sword. The quality of the sword depends on the ingredients or metals or ores that you used while forging. You can check out all the ores here.
Tap the forge button and on the next screen, you will break the rocks to mine the ores or metals. You get random metals/ores from these rocks. After that, the blacksmith/you smelt/heat the metals and then pour it into the sword-shaped mold. And, at last, you hit the sword with a hammer to straighten its hot parts.
Once it gets successful, you will see the outcome on your screen – the rarity of the sword and the materials/metals it contains. After that, you can store it in the armory/shop. Swords stored in the armory generates gold/income for you. Update – now you can also shine the swords with the machine after hammering it. Let’s learn everything in detail and explore all the Forge Ahead cheats, tips & tricks: –
Use The Time Lapse Cheat
Well, we don’t recommend using this cheat if you don’t want to ruin the gaming experience. Those who don’t care: – the swords that are stored in the armory shop generate income over time. At the top-center of the game screen, you can check the earnings per second. Even if you close the game, you will make money – thanks to the Idle system.
Now coming to the point – fill all the sword slots in the armory so that you can max out the benefit of using this cheat. Go to the mobile settings and switch to manual – forward the time to the next day or week to earn a big sum of money in no time. Again, don’t use this Forge Ahead cheat if you don’t want to ruin the gaming experience.
Complete The Missions In Forge Ahead
Now and then, mercenaries or other people from the town visit your armory shop and give you orders/missions. In most of the missions, they will mention a sword – for example; for the first time, James the Tax Collector visits your shop and ask for at least a common quality sword. Go to the last tab/cash-counter(there are five tabs at the top of the screen) -> tap the sword with at least a common quality -> sell.
Some people ask for a sword that contains specific ores, while some mention the quality; common, uncommon, rare, and so on. So make sure to read the mission details -> tap the customer -> read the details -> accept or refuse. If you refuse, he will come again with another mission. A timer starts above the cash-counter tab that shows the time left for another mission. Tap it to skip and get instant order.
Forge Best Swords With Quality Ores
