What are Time Crystals?Edit
Time Crystals are a valuable new resource in Gardens of Time. They can be used to play scenes, to build buildings and to upgrade buildings from the Time Crystal Chapter.
The Time Crystal Chapter is a chapter that will be available for players to unlock only for a limited time! In addition to 3 new scenes, the chapter features 7 exclusive garden items that can be earned, built and upgraded over the course of the chapter! We are giving everyone enough crystals to unlock the chapter. In order to earn all of the garden items, you must complete all of the Time Crystal quests. But act quickly, for when the chapter expires, your progress will be frozen in time and you will only be able to keep what you’ve unlocked at that point.
How do I get Time Crystals?Edit
Time Crystals can be earned in 4 ways:
- You’ll receive enough Time Crystals to get you started.
- You can purchase more Time Crystals with Gold.
- You can earn Time Crystals by playing scenes.
- You can post on your wall for help. For every friend that helps you, you’ll earn 2 Time Crystals.
Post often to give your friends more chances to help!
(Note: you have to enter a text to make the post unique on your Timeline)
When will the Time Crystal Chapter expire?Edit
The Time Crystal Chapter will expire 14 days after it becomes available - on Friday, January 5th at 10 am PST
What happens when the Time Crystal Chapter expires?Edit
Once the Chapter expires, your progress will be frozen in time. All Time Crystal Chapter quests will expire and you will only be left with the scenes you’ve unlocked and the items you’ve earned.
What happens to my leftover Time Crystals?Edit
You get to keep all of your Time Crystals. They can be used to play Time Crystal Chapter scenes you’ve unlocked and to build and upgrade Time Crystal Buildings that you’ve earned. However, once the Chapter is over, the only way to acquire additional Time Crystals is by purchasing them.
What happens to my buildings?Edit
You will get to keep all of garden items you’ve earned. Even after the Chapter expires, you can build and upgrade your buildings using Time Crystals.
What happens to the scenes that I’ve unlocked?Edit
You will still be able to play unlocked Time Crystal scenes for 1 Time Crystal and 10 Energy per play.
What happens to scenes I haven’t unlocked and garden items I haven’t earned?Edit
Unfortunately, you’ve missed out. You will not have another chance to acquire these exclusive garden items and scenes once the Time Crystal Chapter has expired.
What happens to the quests I haven’t completed?
They will expire just like the Chapter.
