HV-MTL HELP: Here's How You Can Make It To The Rift Before The HV-MTL Hunt Begins Later This Month!
Earlier this week, many around the swamp were disappointed that Yuga Labs had to delay the Hunt and push the Rift's opening back a week.
While this was disappointing for many, the delay is an opportunity for others to build out their Forges and make it to the Rift before it opens later this month!
If you’re a HV-MTL holder who is looking to get to the Rift in your Forge before the Hunt begins, The Bored Ape Gazette’s resident gamer, Mr. Mugen has some tips and tricks for you!
Take a look at his HV-MTL help guide below:
Preparing for the Rift
With the delay of the Rift opening, this gives players more time to start or continue building their Forge. Yuga recently revealed details about the Rift and here’s how players can best prepare.
How to enter the Rift?
Lay down a tile path until players can see the Rift portal. Players can build directly out towards the portal without connecting to portals, but it would not be optimal. HVs need Energy to explore the Rift.
Max amount of Energy for the Rift
There is no Energy requirement to enter the Rift, but Energy is the literal lifeline to a HV’s Battery. The amount of Energy in a Battery determines how long a HV can explore and fight in the Rift. HVs consume Energy as they explore the Rift and once a HV’s shield depletes in battle, damage dealt to a HV will start to drain Energy from the Battery.
This is why it is important to upgrade portals and tiles optimally for longer exploration time in the Rift.
For new players, build directly to the portals and don’t worry about decorations. It’s all about Energy. Start off by building directly to the first portal and upgrade the first portal and tiles along the way. Players can slowly start to build out to the second portal, but keep in mind the requirements to upgrade the first portal. Focus on upgrading the first and second portal, alternate accordingly to time needed. Keep portal one at longer upgrade time for overnight upgrades and focus on the second portal and Tiles during active hours.
