Adventure PortalsTop ^

These portals lead to Adventure Worlds where players can collect materials to build or craft unique homes (known as Cornerstones) and fight Shadows lurking inDungeons and Lairs! Adventure Worlds are categorized by level, so you can face enemies that offer the right difficulty for you.

These worlds are all procedurally generated, so you’ll get a wide variety of environments to explore. Each different ecosystem is called a Biome. Read this handy overview to learn more about Biomes.

Dungeons and LairsTop ^

The compass at the top of your screen will let you know whenever you’re near a dungeon, represented by a stone tower. Trove’s dungeons and lairs offer players a chance to test their mettle both solo or cooperatively to defeat enemies. Storm the dungeon alone or charge in with fellow heroes and beat the boss. Everyone gets credit for the kill and everyone gets their own loot.

Each boss drops a loot chest after being defeated. Destroy the chest to uncover the loot inside and press E to collect!

CraftingTop ^

Throughout Trove’s many realms, you’ll pick up materials that can used in many crafting recipes. To create these masterpieces, go to the Crafting Bench in your Cornerstone. As you explore the world and defeat baddies, you’ll unlock more advanced tools to create better items and upgrade your gear.

ClubsTop ^

New players can join a Club or form a new Club of their own by crafting a Club Card. Once you’re in a Club, teleport to your Club World at any time by holding theP key. Work together to build the kind of world you want to spend time in. To see some of the amazing Club Worlds our players have created, check out some of our previously featured Cubic Creations.
