Talismans

Talismans are special tools that last for a certain time period. Talismans can be used to help investigate pictures or puzzles. Talismans are found in your inventory and can be activated at any time from the Talisman tab in the inventory section of the game. There are two of each type of talisman which offer different levels of the same benefit.

Finding TalismansEdit

Talismans can be won for successful investigation of pictures. Talismans can also be won as rewards for combining certain collections. If you are stuck, talismans can be bought for crystals or coins in the shop.

Using TalismansEdit

To use a talisman, press the Inventory icon on your home desktop. The Talisman Tab is the first tab in the inventory, and is usually open by default.

Shop
Scroll through your available talismans and press on the one you want to use. This will bring up a box describing the talisman, what it does, and where it can be found. Press the green "Use" button to activate the talisman or the brown "Cancel" button to go back to the list of talismans.

You can use one of each type of talisman (or artefact) at the same time, so you can potentially have 12 talismans and artefacts running at the same time. However, only one talisman of each type can be used at a time, and a talisman cannot be used at the same time as an artefact with the same function. For example you can use an Ancient Scroll and a Money Bag at the same time, but you cannot use an Ancient Scroll at the same time as a Scroll or a Money Bag at the same time as a Leprechaun's Pot o' Gold.

Experience TalismansEdit

Luck TalismansEdit

Luck Talismans increase the odds for winning objects for successfully investigating pictures or puzzles by a certain percentage for a set period of time. Luck Talismans do not help you find hidden objects within pictures. Luck Talismans also do not increase the odds of winning a particular item (such as a quest item), they simply increase the odds of receiving ANY items for investigating pictures or puzzles. Typically using a Luck Talisman will increase the number of collection items and elements to combine collections you win after successfully completing a picture or a puzzle. Since the number of items you win is bigger, the odds of you winning the item you need are increased. However, the items you win are still randomly generated so there is no guarantee that you will win a specific item you are looking for.

  • Fortune Talisman: The Fortune Talisman increases the chances of finding objects inside pictures/puzzles by 10% for 30 minutes*. Fortune Talismans can be found by successfully investigating Crashed Plane or Misty Shed.  They are rewards for achieving award levels "Assistant Professor"; "Happy Birthday"; "Good Gesture", and "Trainee (Level 2)". Fortune Talismans can also be won by combining certain collections, or purchased for coins in the shop.
  • Fortune Amulet: The Fortune Amulet increases the chances of finding objects by 30% for 90 minutes. They are rewards for achieving award levels "Lucky"; "Brainiac"; "Santas Elf"; "Expert (Level 2)". Fortune Amulets can also be won by combining certain collections, or purchased for crystals in the shop.
  • Diamond horseshoe: The Diamond horseshoe increases the chances of finding objects by 90% for 2 hours. They can be won by combining certain collections, or purchased for crystals in the shop.

Energy TalismansEdit

Energy Talismans increase the rate of renewal of energy points (needed to investigate pictures/puzzles) by a certain rate for a set period of time. Typically, energy restores at a rate of 1 energy point for every 3 minutes. Using Energy Talismans speeds up the 3 minutes count down for a new energy point to be created. Energy Talismans do not speed up the renewal of strength points (needed to charge a friend's pictures/puzzles/awards when visiting them). When an Energy Talisman is activated energy renewal is faster than 1 point every 3 minutes, but strength renewal remains at 1 point for every 3 minutes (unless a Friendship Talisman is also active).

  • Winged Lightning: Winged Lightning triples energy restoration speed for 30 minutes (you gain 1 energy point every minute for 30 minutes). Winged Lightning can be won by combining certain collections, or purchased for crystals in the shop.
  • Super Winged Lightning: Super Winged Lightning increases energy restoration by 5 times for 90 minutes (you gain 1 energy point every 36 seconds for 90 minutes). Super Winged Lightning are rewards for achieving award levels "Specialist"; "The professional of photos"; "The owner of the photos"; "The Lord of the Photos"; "The adept of photos"; "The master of the photo" and "Superfast". Super Winged Lightening can also be won by combining certain collections, or purchased for crystals in the shop. The Super Winged Lightning can be used when the game is in standby (overnight) and it will continue past the 90 minutes.
  • Angel wings: Angel wings increase energy restoration by 10 times for 2 hours (you gain 1 energy point every 18 seconds for 2 hours). Angel wings can be won by combining certain collections or purchased for crystals in the shop.

Friendship Talismans Edit

Friendship talismans were introduced to the game during the Treasure Island Update, and can currently only be obtained by buying them in the shop using crystals. Friendship Talismans help with friend interactions in the game, such as strength renewal and rewards for visiting friends.

The Bronze and golden weight disks increase the rate of renewal of strength points (needed to charge friend's desktops while visiting them) by a certain rate for a set period of time. Typically, strength restores at a rate of 1 strength point for every 3 minutes. Using the weight disks speeds up the 3 minutes count down for a new strength point to be created. Weight disks do not speed up the renewal of energy ponts (needed to investigate pictures/puzzles). When a weight disk is activated, strength renewal is faster than 1 point every 3 minutes, but energy renewal remains at 1 point for every 3 minutes (unless an Energy Talisman is also active). The Friends talismans increase the rewards earned from visiting friends by a certain percentage when activated. They increase the coins and experience points earned from daily bonuses for friends you receive daily bonuses from while visiting, and they increase the coins and experience points earned from charging your friend's desktops. They do not increase the special items earned as part of the daily bonuses and they do not increase the number of random collection items that drop while charging your friend's desktops.

The Magic CrystalEdit

The Magic Crystal Talisman

The Magic Crystal is a reward for entering the game every day for a set period of time. There are 5 components to the magic crystal, and each component is given for visiting the game for a set number of days in a row. To get the Magic Crystal you must enter the game every day for 21 days (25 days for games updated to the Christmas 2014 update or later). If you miss one day you are sent back to the beginning of the level you are on (max penalty is five days) and must start over to win the Magic Crystal. However, you are given the option to either start over or to recover your progress by paying with crystals.

Magic crystal 1

Day 6 out of 25 of the Magic Crystal talisman collection.

The Magic Crystal increases the odds of finding an object by 12% and adds 12% to coins received from exploring pictures/puzzles for 10 days.

When you enter the game for the 25th consecutive day, the Magic Crystal talisman will automatically combine and a screen will appear asking you if you want to use it. Pressing yes will automatically activate the Magic Crystal talisman. Pressing no will not activate it, instead the Magic Crystal talisman will be stored in the Talisman section of your inventory. It can be activated at any time from there the same way any other talisman/artefact is activated.

The Magic Crystal Talisman is unique among the Talismans in the game, as it can be used at the same time as other Luck and Money Talismans. For example, if you are using a Magic Crystal and then activate a Fortune Amulet and Leprechaun's Pot o' Gold, for the following 90 minutes your chances of winning items for successfully investigating pictures and puzzles will be increased by a total of 42% and the amount of coins you win for successfully investigating pictures and puzzles will be increased by a total of 37%.

Note: The Christmas 2014 Update changed the Magic Crystal Talisman so that it could not longer be used in conjunction with other Talismans/Artefacts with the same purpose (no other Luck or Money Talismans/Artefacts). This meant that if you activated a Magic Crystal Talisman you would be locked into the +12% increase in Luck and Money for 10 days. For things like the timed challenges introduced with updates, this meant that you could be stuck with this very low increase for a large amount of the time you have available to complete the challenges, and would not be able to activate more powerful talismans if you earned them while playing for 10 days.

The Social Events Update returned Magic Crystal Talismans to their original mechanics. This means they can be used at the same time as Talismans/Artefacts of the same function. This makes the Magic Crystal Talisman a very useful Talisman once again.

ArtefactsEdit

Artefacts are like Talismans, but typically they last longer (12-48 hours) and give much bigger rewards. Artefacts are displayed in the Talisman Inventory Section but are created in the Collections Section.

They are made by combining 5 completed collections using clock parts as combining elements.

See the Artefacts page for more information on Artefacts, and the List of Artefacts pages for details of what items are required to create each Artefact.

Useful HintsEdit

Use the List of Collections page to sort Collections by their rewards in order to find the collections that reward the Talisman you want. You can also use the List of Collection Items (or same list with pictures) to find out what items are needed to create those collections or the List of Collection Item Locations to find out where to get the items needed for those collections (to help choose the most economical collection to use to win the Talisman). If you cannot find a collection item in a Picture that should reward it, use the Picture Level - Resources and Demands to check what Picture level you need to be on that Picture to be in with a chance of winning that collection item.
