Overview[edit | edit source]

Tools are items used by your Hearthlings to perform their daily tasks. Each job requires a different tool to do their job, with the exception of workers, who need no special equipment.

Acquiring tools[edit | edit source]

Tools are crafted by artisans. These are normal items found inside the crafting menu of many professions. Order up a new tool as you would any other item, and it will be crafted and placed in a stockpile. Each settlement start's with a Carpenter's Saw and a Trapper's Knife, allowing you to begin crafting the basic tools of more advanced jobs and secure a food supply. Be careful though; these items could be stolen by marauding goblins, and you will be unable to promote anyone to these jobs unless you can craft another.

Using Tools[edit | edit source]

As a tool is a job requirement, there is nothing special that needs to be done to use a tool. So long as a particular tool is available, any Hearthling can be promoted using the promotion UI. If the Hearthling is already using a tool as a member of a particular job, then the tool that they are using will be returned to the stockpile once they promote to the new job. For example, if a Farmer is promoted to a Trapper using a Trapper's Knife, then the Farmer's Hoe is returned to the general stockpile and can be used to promote a different Hearthling to Farmer.

Experience Gain[edit | edit source]

Experience is gained whilst using a tool, for example when a Carpenter crafts an item. When a Hearthling is promoted to a new job, the base Experience drops to 0 (just for this job), whilst the max Experience remains the same. The max Experience increases each time a Hearthling levels in any job. 10 health is also gained each level.

This means that it is fast to level a fresh Hearthling Worker, but slow to level a master Cook for example.
