Building and Upgrading

It would be better to upgrade the walls, floors & doors to avoid being looted by the intruders. All you need to do is tap the building button -> tap the floor/wall/door of the house -> hit the upgrade button.
Tools or Devices
As mentioned above, as you level up, you get access to new items. In Grim Soul game, the player can build a wide range of tools or devices to make the life easy and prosperous;

- Herbalist’s Table – Make Spirits
To build these tools or devices, you need to explore the lands, dungeons, players’ base and gather the resources required in building these items. Keep in mind that some resources are very rare and you hardly get from lands; you may need to enter the dungeon for these items or from the loot areas/events. And to enter the dungeon, you need dungeon key. The dungeon key is also one of the rare items. And there is no exact location of it. You may find it in zones, in loot, from the chest, by killing the gatekeeper.
In Grim Soul, use the ranged weapon to defeat or kill the gatekeeper as it is so slow. On the other hand, if you use the melee weapon, then you may not be able to defeat it as its damage power is very high. And to get access to these locations; gatekeeper’s hut, dungeons, you need to find the map first. These additional maps are required to see these locations on the map; you can obtain these maps in Grim Soul from the zones/lands, events or players’ base.
Note: – It will take a lot of time, so keep patience.
