playing celtic tribes

Hi: I have downloaded Celtic tribes and I am enjoying it a lot. I have a few questions though. One, is there a guide or podcast on how to play the game? If not, I hope someone who plays the game won't mind answering my questions. I know how to upgrade my buildings and how to do missions such as cut trees, mine clay/ore and go fishing. Here are my questions; one, how do you get runes? I see some missions need runes but I don't know how to get them. Two, how do you get mor silver and copper? Three, what are the artifacts, What do they do, where do I put them and how do I use them? Four, I understand you can attack other villages to increase your resources; how is this done, do you need to be part of an alliance or can you attack on your own? Well I think that is all my questions for now. I am sorry if this post is long and I hope that my questions aren't to confusing. I look forward to any tips, tricks and suggestions to playing this game. Thanks in advance to all of your help. Nancy

#1 HI. this game sounds

HI. this game sounds interesting. I take it it's accessible? I hope someone can answer your questions.

Try upgrading the magic grove to build new runes. Next try upgrading the chief house to silver to take over villages while there you will also find you're artifacts

#3 playing celtic tribes

First upgrade the magic grove to produce runes. Next upgrade the chief house to get you're silver to take over villages. While there you will also find you're artifacts. I am not sure on how to use the artifacts yet this is my first time playing the game just today but if I find out how to use the artifacts I will let you know.

#4 Celtic Tribes

If you have artifacts, you can enter them in slots to form a pattern. they increase certain things like production and defense or attack. I'm hoping someone will answer these two questions for me, though. How does one send a message to another player, and, how does one send an invite after creating an alliance?

#6 Playing Celtic Tribes

I've just started trying to seriously play this game. I can build buildings and when resources permit, I can produce runes, but I don't know how to do anything else. Is there a good, in depth audio tutorial for this game? I'm about to check out the link that was posted in a previous response, but I'm wondering how helpful it's going to be for VO users? I'm in an alliance now, and the people seem very nice and willing to help, but they can only explain things from a graphical perspective. This game has a lot of potential to be awesome and fun for VO users, but it's very difficult to learn, or at least it seems that way to me. If there are any experts out there who would have the time or inclination to produce a podcast about some of the more complex aspects of playing, it would be extremely appreciated. Missy

#7 This game has potential

This thread is pretty dead, but I thought I'd contribute anyway. I've had this game for a few weeks, and it has some potential, but this last update was a giant step backwards. The February 10 update introduced a bug that made it impossible to send messages; as soon as one letter was typed, the app would crash. Now, a new update has come out which fixes that bug but introduces one that, at least for me, is much, much worse. Now, instead of only crashing in a message, the game will crash randomly on any screen at all. I'd like to contact the developer, but they require a capcia to be solved just to send in a tech support question or report a bug. I'd just delete the game and go on with life, but I've put quite a bit of real money into it in hopes of supporting the developers' commitment to accessability. If anyone is playing this game and can confirm the bugs I have described, that would be great. Maybe if enough of us speak up, things will get fixed completely.

#8 answers to your questions

artefacts are managed in the cheifs house. You get them from completing missions, they are randomly earned. I had trouble with this at first as well. if you have them they will be listed when you hit the artefacts button. they are also in your profile tab. to select a artefact to use, tap on the empty spot you want to place it in then tap on the button next to the name of the artefact. they expire after time so keep an eye on them so you always have them to help you. It took me about a month to start collecting them.

your third question was about attacking other villages to gain more resources. This is called farming and it is awesome! In your map tab you will want to find all the free villages in your area and tap on them. select the attack button and use a couple slingers and a cart to attack with. send the attack and in time they will return to you with resources. if you are farming at night send 4 or 5 archers and a cart because the fortifications are stronger then.

http://www.celtictribes.com is the newest site I believe for any guides and faqs.

Have fun!

#9 to get ruins research them in

to get ruins research them in the majic grove.

to get artifacts do daily messions. As for how to use them I'm still tryign to figure that one out.

to attack all you need is the amount of silver and a druid. You can do it by yourself if you want to but I'd advise against it.
