Note: This game is in early access and so is this guide! Since the game is incomplete, this guide will be too. We are adding to it weekly, sometimes daily!
Another Note: This is a game that thrives on afk while you are working, sleeping or whatever you do. We will try to make the best notes on when it is time to go “idle on”.
Tutorial Area – Starting the Game
Download and start the game. You will first start in the tutorial area 1. Only your first character will go through this stage. Kill five monsters to open the door, leading into the next tutorial area. In tutorial area 2 there are some monsters you cannot defeat without the proper weapon. You will need to climb the rope to the top platform. On the top platform there is an alien tree, starlight mining node, and a forge. Collect 7 pieces of ore from the node and 7 logs from the tree. Take these to the forge and make the Flesh Reaper in the craft tab. Equip the new weapon but tapping the Items button on the bottom bar. Now its time to kick some butt. Kill the five monsters to unlock the portal door to the next area. In tutorial area 3 you will have a small cut scene with the massive troll, before falling to world one, where the game really begins!
Secret Quest with Secret Stone. Before leaving the Tutorial Area there is a special secret quest that offers nothing… so far. Upon completion it will be noted in the codex. While at the Anvil scroll down to see the Secret Stone. It requires the materials of 2 Flesh Reapers, 5 starlight ores, and 5 alien logs. Go back through the first portal to complete.

Note! One of the best things about Idleon is starting new players and flying through the early stages as you progress!
World One: Blunder Hills
Blunder Hills is the starting world of Legends of Idleon!. It is one of four Worlds that make up the whole map of the game. It consists of 21 areas which we will cover below.
Blunder Hills: Town Area
Before running off into the wild let’s take a second to get familiar with the town. The town of Blunder Hills is one stage. It is the starting area after creating a player. The town consists of a few NPCs, your storage chest, The Shop, a couple portal doors, and a forge and smelt. Here you will find Scripticus, the main quest giver. Talk to him to receive your first quest, Hardcore Gamer Status. You can explore the town and start farming as well, or take the portal to the right of Scripticus to begin the first mission.
Also here you can pick up three quest which you will complete later on. Talk to the grey brick to get the quest Visualizing The Sculpture Within. This quest requires buying sculpting tools from the shop, which cost 32 silver. This quest unlocks stamps to upgrade every character account wide! Be sure to buy and complete this as soon as possible.
Talk to Mr. Pigibank to accept the quest A Pig And His Stamps. This quest is continued once you reach Froggy Fields. It requires finding Hammish and doing his quest.
The third extra quest is Restoring the Town Portal, given by Builder Bird. This is one of the last quest to complete in World One, and requires defeating the first world boss.
Tip! Go ahead and tap on the Anvil and and select the Produce Tab. You can get your production for yarn started. Producing materials from the Anvil Produce Tab is the quickest and most efficient way yo level up smithing. Be sure to check you production when ever you are in town.
Blunder Hills: Spore Meadows
Now the adventure begins! To complete the first quest of the game defeat five green spores and return through the portal you came in on the left. Talk to Scripticus to receive the second quest.
Right back into town you will turn in your first quest and receive your second quest from Scripticus, Gear Up Gamer!. This a is quest is just to get you used to using the shop and crafting weapons and armor. All that is needed to complete the quest is to make some Boxing Gloves. After getting the quest, head to the Shop to buy five Cue Tapes. Scripticus automatically gives the Crimson String needed once the quest is started. Now go to the Anvil and make those gloves!
Tip! The Boxing Gloves are used later for certain tasks. So don’t sell or throw them away if it can be helped!
To make the gloves click on the Anvil. Then click on the Boxing Gloves and select craft. You don’t have to equip them to complete the quest, but you probably want to for the stats. Scripticus will also give a Red Headband to equip for completing the quest. Be sure to click on Scripticus to get your third quest, Mr. Worldwide.
Head back to Spore Meadows to complete the third quest. The third quest, Mr. Worldwide, shows how portal doors are open. Just like in the tutorial area, there is a certain number of monsters in the area that have to be beat to unlock the next area. Defeat the 45 monsters to unlock map 2 area. You may not want to go idle just yet! Because you will still take a damage from the green spores until a few more levels, or better gear is crafted. If you start to take too much damage and get close to death run back into town to instantly heal. After unlocking the portal door peak inside then run back out! It is still too dangerous in there to hang out just yet. Turn the quest in at Scripticus back in town.
The next quest, The Choice Is Yours!, is simply choosing 5 talent points. This fourth quest can be done instantly and then completed. (talent points page and guide) Now its time to start the fifth quest, Certified Swinger. This requires the player to do a couple of side quests involving mining for the goblin Glumlee. He can be found in the portal on the left side of the town, which leads to Tunnels Entrance.
Blunder Hills: Tunnels Entrance
(Intro to Mining/Smelting)
Talk to Glumlee to start his quest chain. Unless you want to go idle now for about a day or more, you won’t finish his whole quest line. However you can get enough done to complete the quest Certified Swinger and continue on Scripticus’ main quest.
Glumlee will teach you about mining and guide you in getting started. Glumlee’s first quest, Learning To Swing, requires mining five copper ores. You do not need anything equipped to start mining. Tap on any of the copper nodes to start mining. After collecting five ores click on Glumlee again to turn in the quest and receive his second quest Learning To Smelt.
Tip! When you get the tutorial oil it can be used to quickly do your first smelting quest to create a copper bar. But if you remove it before the bar is finished you can reuse it again and again!
To complete Learning To Smelt make one Copper Bar in the forge. Glumlee will give you the Tutorial Oil to use along with the copper ore that was just mined. You can use either the forge in town or the forge in Tunnels Entrance. Tap on the forge and drag the Tutorial Oil and at least 2 Copper Ores to the light grey boxes on the forge screen. It will smelt quickly this one time. Collect the Copper Bar and tap on Glumlee to complete. Glumlee will give you the next quest.
The third and last quest, Literally Burning Your Money, that is needed from Glumlee to complete Certified Swinger is to upgrade the forge. Click on the forge and select the dim yellow arrow to open up the upgrade tab. There is six options for upgrade. However, the first one cost 10 silver and 80 copper, while the other five cost 50 copper. But, the prices rise quickly for each upgrade level you buy. At this time you may not have 250 copper to buy all needed upgrades.
Tip! The quickest and most consistent way to farm money in the game is by defeating monsters. This can be done by playing or leaving the game on idle while you are afk. Even if the game is off you will continue to collect experience, money, materials, and loot drops. Be sure to be at the highest level area you can survive in infinitely or eventually the player will run out of food and stop farming.
To finish the quest Literally Burning Your Money you can sell items for money, but farming it out from monsters is a better move in the long run. Most items are important in some way. Farming monster on Auto for under ten minutes in Spore Meadows gave more than enough money to buy all the forge tabs. It also gave enough experience to get past level five and a quite a few Spore Caps to store for later. After buying the five forge upgrades tap on Glumlee to complete the quest. Glumlee will ask you to return after reaching mining level 11. That’s a long way considering the quest and will need much afk idling. But when you do reach level 11 and return he will have one more quest for you, The Impossible Task. This quest simply requires you to pic up the mic he drops and turn in the quest. LaveFlame2 has noted there will be more quest from Glumlee in the future.
Now its time to return to Scripticus to turn in the quest Certified Swinger. Now that mining is learned, Scripticus will focus once again on smithing, sending the player on a longer smithing quest called The Smithing Grind. Everything to farm this quest is found in the two areas covered so far which are adjacent to town.
Learning About Choppin and Smithing
To complete the next main quest, The Smithing Grind, you will need 30 Spore Caps, 20 Copper Ores, and 25 Oak Logs. The Copper Ore can be farmed to the left of town in the Tunnels Entrance. And the Oak Logs and Spore Caps can be farmed in the Spore Meadows to the right of town. You will need to start choppin to get the Oak Logs. Choppin is just like mining, and has its own quest giver as well, Woodsman. Tap on Woodsman to receive the first Choppin quest, A Noob’s First Swing, before you start farming for Oak Logs. Now its time to chop away! This is another good time to afk on idle.
After collecting all the Oak needed and completing A Noob’s First Swing, you can get the next Choppin quest, A Noob’s 2nd First Swing. This quest takes awhile to complete so it can be done now on idle or later. The following chopping quest, It’s Just A Plank, Bro!, requires level 10 chopping followed by Exotic Pranks… I mean Logs!. Like ore, you will need a lot of logs in the game, and may want to be constantly farming it. Finish collecting as many Spore Caps as needed from the Green Spores. Next head back to Tunnels Entrance to get all the ore required, if needed.
Now its time to start some crafting… or smithing, or anviling? What ever you call it, lets make some armor! Go to the anvil in Town and select the Orange Tee and the Farmer Brim to create them. There are many pieces of armor, weapons, and tools you can make off from the start. But you also need to be the right level to make and equip them. Remember, producing items with the anvil, even when not playing, is the quickest way to level smithing.
After making those two items the quest The Smithing Grind will be done. Turn it in at Scripticus to pick up the next main quest. The next main quest from Scripticus, Can’t Somebody Else Do It, will require you to reach level seven and create a new player! At this point you should be close enough to level seven to farm out the rest of the experience quickly if needed. Also you will be required to use the Storage Chest again at least one time.
Creating The Second Player. Learning to Idle
After reaching level seven click on the Menu tab and select Swap Player to select the Player Menu. Here you can make your second character. The creation is like the first character, mentioned at the guide’s beginning in the Player Menu section. Be sure to leave your first character doing something productive while creating and possibly player the second player. At this point it is completely safe to leave them in Froggy Fields, the next area in Blunder Hills after Spore Meadows.
Creating many players and having them all work functionally together is the key to the game. While you are idle in afk, rather playing or the game is off, your characters will continue to farm.
At this point you can go ahead and restart all the quest and leveling with your second player, or leave them on idle while continuing on with the first player created. Talk to Scripticus after creating the second player to get the next main quest, The Unoccupied Picnic.
Blunder Hills: Froggy Fields
The quest The Unoccupied Picnic will take you to the third area in Blunder Hills, Froggy Fields to get the Golden Jam from the Picnic Stowaway. Froggy Fields has two questlines from the NPCs Picnic Stowaway and Hammish. Also, Froggy Fields contains the first dungeon: Grandfrog’s Gazebo. Here you can find the Colosseum as well. The Colosseum is to the right side of the area with the NPC Typhoon. He will give you a small quest, Surprise Attack, to defeat frogs before allowing you into The Colosseum.
The Colosseum is a great quick way to gain extra experience and items. But, there is only one ticket granted a day, which is used between all players. So far there is a Colosseum for every world, or at least the first two. They are also part of guild dailies. We will add more about that later.
After checking out or passing up The Colosseum you can continue on to the quest The Unoccupied Picnic. This will take you to the bottom of the area to meet Picnic Stowaway. Complete his 3 quests to complete get the Golden Jam The Unoccupied Picnic.
The first quest Picnic Stowaway will give you is The Hungry Stowaway. It requires 50 nomwiches. To get the 50 nomwiches you could farm them from monsters, but it is quick and cheap to buy them back at the shop. After turning in the 50 these tasty sandwiches to Picnic Stowaway he will give you the second quest, Beating Up Frogs for Some Sauce. Defeat frogs in Froggy Fields until they drop 3 Ketchups and 3 Mustards. So far there hasn’t been any other use for these items so you can throw them away or sale. Return to Picnic Stowaway for his third and last quest, Live-Action Entertainment, needed to complete The Unoccupied Picnic. As soon as the quest is clicked on he will spawn 10 mushrooms close by that have to be beaten. After completing Live-Action Entertainment you will have the Golden Jam to complete The Unoccupied Picnic.
Tip! The next two quests by the Stowaway isn’t needed for the main questline but is important for other side quests. The first one is The Most Important Meal of the Day. This quest starts a 9 quests long daily quest chain. Brunchin’ With The Blobs, the second quest, gives the peanut recipe needed for Journeyman and Funguy’s first quest Mushroom Munchies.
Before journeying back to town, go ahead and pick up the next quest from Picnic Stowaway. This will start a long chain of quests, but try to do them as extra quests every day if you can when first playing the game. The quest chain resets every day and rewards Golden Jam. The first time Brunchin’ With The Blobs is done it will reward the peanut recipe. Also, talk to Hamish to start his quest chain. His first quest, The Hamazing Plot Twist. If you have the materials to make the Copper Chopper, you can craft it and finish the quest when you come back through.
Return to town to turn in The Unoccupied Picnic and receive the next main quest, Seeking Foreign Aid. The quest requires finding Stiltzcho in the Jungle Perimeter, which is two areas away from Froggy Fields. But first, collect 30 logs, 20 copper bar, and 30 thread to make the Copper Chopper for Hamish.
Talk to Hamish to complete The Hamazing Plot Twist and receive your first stamp and complete A Pig And His Stamps. Afterwards, you can get the next quest for Hamish’s quest chain, Should We Tell Him. His chain really helps out with Choppin.
Now it will be time to pass Froggy Field and into Valley of the Beans. Afterwards, the main quest line will continue in the jungle area. But there is plenty to do first in Valley of the Beans.
Blunder Hills: Valley of the Beans
Valley of the Beans is where you will find the place to choose your players main class in IdleOn. Also in Valley of the Beans there is the second choppin’ location for bleach logs, and the portal to the house monster area, ? To start the quests for your player class, talk to Promotheus right below the entrance portal. To start and finish the first quest from Promotheus, I’m Ready, Promotion, reach level 10.
If you are level 10, you can complete the first and second quest by Promotheus easily by talking to him, allowing to choose one of three classes for your character. It is important to know, if you want a Journeyman class DO NOT CHOOSE A CLASS YET. You cannot be a journeyman if you already have a class. After finishing I’m Ready, Promotion! Promotheus will give you the quest Three Right Answers, and the option to choose one of three classes. If you skip this class to be a Journeyman you can complete it after the Journeyman class is selected.
After choosing a class Promotheus will give you a quest, Slovakian Scare, to see one of the first World Bosses, Baby Yaga. This requires opening the second portal in Valley of the Beans. Baby Yaga can be seen every hour, around the 0 to 5 minute mark. Afterwards he will give you a quest to beat him. This quest will come later when you are higher level if this is one of your first few characters. After selecting a class and opening the portal to Jungle Perimeter it’ll be time to move on with the main questline.
Selecting a Player Class in IdleOn
See our class page or come back later for more info.
It is highly recommended for the first player class on an account to be a warrior. Secondly a mage will do for their quick kills thanks to high damage. Archers are usually a third choice or even later. It is also recommended to start the journeyman class on your fourth character or later.
Blunder Hills: Jungle Perimeter
Welcome to the jungle. It has fun and games… and slimes. Jungle Perimeter is a great place to farm hotdogs. It also leads to a great farming location, The Base Of The Bark, for experience and money later in the game. To get there unlock the second portal, but you may not want to return until a higher level and beating the Wolf Golem.
In the Jungle Perimeter you can find the next quest giver who has his own questline with three quests required to advance the main quest line. This NPC quest giver is called Stiltzcho, and looks like a leaf. He is the only NPC in Jungle Perimeter and has Scouting Report needed for Scripticus’ main quest, Seeking Foreign Aid. The first quest Stiltzcho gives you is Outta the Way Slimes, and is likely the first quest to give people some trouble.
Outta the Way Slimes requires beating 12 slimes in 90 seconds. If you got here to fast, it can prove difficult. No matter what class you are, using the beginning spear, wooden spear, is very helpful. It allows to hit multiple monsters at once. This helps with the time limit.
After Completing Outta the Way Slimes, Stiltzcho will give his second quest, No Stone Unturned. To complete this quest unlock the portal to the next area, Winding Willows, and keep beating the snakes until you collect the 5 Strange Rocks needed to complete Stiltzcho’s quest. However there is still one more quest to do in the jungle for Stiltzcho before venturing on.
After giving Stiltzcho the 5 stones to complete No Stone Unturned, he will give you is third and last quest needed to get the scouting report for Scripticus. This next quest Investigator by Day, Prankster by Night requires going two areas forward to collect carrot cubes in the Vegetable Patch, and back one area to Valley of the Beans for some bleach logs. Luckily, you one need a couple of each. Investigator by Day also gives one of the best pendants in early game, Carrot Horror. Although it can be time consuming on your first character, it gets really quick and easy as you make new players.
Now that Stiltzcho’s quest line is done its time to go back to town and continue the main questline from Scripticus. Scripticus will tell you to find the Forest Camp in Encroaching Forest Villas. This quest is called What Lies At The Heart Of The Forest. The Forest Camp is four areas from where we left off in Jungle Perimeter. So let’s check out the two areas we saw plus one more on the way.
Blunder Hills: Winding Willows
Winding Willows is an area full of snakes with a interesting mushroom NPC called Funguy. Funguy gives his own side quest chain. Also Funguy is one of the NPC quests needed to fully complete world one. This questline is very long and gets harder as you progress through the game. Be sure to check back frequently when you are ready for the next one.
Blunder Hills: Vegetable Patch
The Vegetable Patch has a bit more to offer than the previous area. Here you can find only one NPC, who is hidden and only available to classless players with a peanut. Bushlyte starts the Journeyman quest. If interested you can see our page on Journeyman.
The Vegetable Patch also leads to a mini game area Spike Surprise, but requires serving a platform of ground spikes. This kind of hidden area has a mini game purely based on luck where you dodge spikes. This game can be played at the beginning of every hour. Instead of going through the spikes, Spike Surprise can be teleported to from anywhere by typing “If u love me let me go” into the chat.
Tip! The “If u love me let me go” trick allows you to exit to where you last were if the mini game hasn’t started. There are surely some uses for that.
Besides having a couple of cool secrets, Vegetable Patch also is where the third choppin’ tree is found for Jungle Logs. Following this area is the last area before the Forest Villas, The Forest Outskirts.
Blunder Hills: The Forest Outskirts
There is nothing here but a bunch of goblins. Kill 350 of them to open the next portal. Here you can farm goblin ears. but usually one per goblin. We don’t want to be too cruel. Don’t worry that there isn’t much here. The next area is full of quests and NPCs and the main boss of World One, the Wolf Golem Amarock.
Blunder Hills: Encroaching Forest Villas
In the Forest Villas you will find a half town, a few quest, and finally, the world boss Amarock who has the gem. There is a shop guy with some good and some Wode Board monsters to farm planks from as well. To get started talk to Tiki Chief who will give you his first quest Brochure Building. This will also finish the quest from Scripticus for the main story, What Lies At The Heart Of The Forest. Next to Tiki is the NPC Dog Bone who has the quest Why Did He Die. This quest will unlock Amarock and give the keys needed to enter his area. If Amarock is already unlocked from a previous character your player can go straight to fighting him if desired.
To complete the quest Brochure Building and Why Did He Die you will have to farm the Wode Board monsters below the NPCs in Encroaching Forest Villas. Also the 1000 trusty nails needed can be made only by producing them at the anvil in Blunder Hills Town.
The third quest found when first entering Forest Villas is Bad Kitty, Get Off That Altar. This will unlock Obols to use, but cannot be completed until defeating the stone wolf Amarock and going to world two.
The first and most important quest to do in Encroaching Forest Villas is Why Did He Die. It is fairly easy considering the Dog Bones drop in off Wode Board monsters in the area and only 10 are a needed. After this quest is complete Dog Bone will give one boss key a day for each player who has completed the quest. Now you can fight Amarock, the first world boss! But first return to town to complete Scripticus main quest What Lies At The Heart Of The Forest and get the new quest The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall to retrieve the Town Gem from the Wolf Golem (Amarok).
Blunder Hills Boss: Amarok The Wolf Golem
Now its time for the first real boss fight.
After World One Boss
After defeating Amarok you will have the option on continuing on with content in Blunder Hills or going to world two. Although you will be going back and forth from world for quests and materials, you may wish to leave some characters in world one while having one push forward in world two. We will cover parts of the sewer, more of the mines, and the big tree before going to world two.
Blunder Hills: Poopy Sewers
Poopy sewers is the first of three sewer areas in World One. The sewers are easily accessible in town by clicking on the grate next to Scripticus in town at Blunder Hills. Although the first area only has poopy monsters and is easy to get to bout teleporting to town, the next two areas require much more work. Because of the amount of farming kills to open the next two portals, it is best to start the Mutton quest chain which requires much sewer farming as well.
To start the Mutton quest chain travel Freefall Caverns, the second mine area. If you haven’t unlocked it by reaching level 11 mining then do so to continue. Now would be the time if you want to do sewer quests.
Blunder Hills: Rats Nest
The second area of the sewers. Contains TP Pete quests and rats.
Blunder Hills: The Office
Here you will find the timed boss of the sewers and a secret platform. By going to the grate on the secret platform and using the bolt cutters you can access a secret fourth sewer area called Meel’s Crypt.
Secret Area: Meel’s Crypt
Meel’s Crypt cannot be seen on the map. It is only located by teleporting or running to The Office area and going through the grate.
