Tips and Tricks for Playing West Game on PC
- Spare no Expenses for your Town
Building your town in this game requires completing a series of main storyline quests. You will find these quests posted at the bottom left side of the screen. Instructions are often simple tasks like CHOOSE YOUR EQUIPMENT, CHOOSE YOUR HEROES, BE THE FASTER DRAW, STRENGTHEN YOUR POWER, and so on. Every completed quest earns you rewards, which you then use to acquire resources to construct buildings and level up. The game walks you through all the buildings you need to construct and in what order.
After you have managed to build a few structures, the game then suggests that you start upgrading your buildings. When this happens, always go for the maximum upgrade on every building. Keeping all buildings upgraded to the maximum will translate into a very powerful town, which will come in handy later on when you are defending against invaders or looking for an Alliance to join.
- Take full Advantage of the Build for Free Opportunity
Upgrading takes a bit of time, so the game offers a few ways to speed things up. The first option includes using ‘speed ups’ which are a resource offered as part of the rewards for completing quests. Use your speed ups sparingly, though, as they are best suited for key buildings like the Town Center or structures that take a while to upgrade. The other option is to join an active alliance since you can receive speed-ups from your player friends. You could also start an upgrade (especially one that takes hours) before heading to bed and find it completed when you log in to play the following day.
Then there is the free building option. When a building is upgrading with only 10 minutes left on the construction timer, a ‘free button’ pops up on the screen. Hitting the free button sees the building finish upgrading instantly. The only downside is that the free option becomes available a little later in the game. So, you will have to resign yourself to using speed ups in the initial stages of playing.
- Complete as Many Quests as Possible
Completing quests is how you earn your bread and butter in this game. The more quests you complete, the more game goodies and resources you will earn and the more powerful you will become in the game. The good news is that there are quests to complete every day. The only problem is that they tend to come with an expiry date that resets every 6 hours. A good strategy is to start with the quests that take a short time to complete. Since you will be able to whip through the shorter timed quests, you will have completed a huge chunk of them if time runs out before you manage to get to all of them.
