Getting Started in Cube World – A Beginner’s Guide

You can buy Cube World here: https://picroma.com/buycubeworld

Here’s the video version of the Beginner’s Guide for people who prefer watching videos:

But if you’re like me, you prefer written guides to watching videos, so here’s one I’ve put together for Cube World. It’ll show you everything you need to get started in the game and to provide beginner help, explained as simply as possible. You DON’T need to watch the above video if you don’t want to – everything is in the writing below. :)

Click on the headers to expand the content. Even though the guide is split into chunks I’d recommend you reading it all from start to finish, because some parts lead into others and aren’t clearly defined under the individual categories. If you want to search the text for keywords, you’ll have to expand them all first.- Show all | Hide all

CHARACTER CREATION

There are currently four classes – Warrior (close-combat melee with heavy armour), Ranger (ranged attacks with good stamina regen for dodge), Mage (fire and water (the latter has some healing), mana shield to block damage) and Rogue (fast close-combat melee with good stamina regen). The classes are explained in more detail on the Cube World Wiki so I won’t go into them here.

From the range of races available, there’s no difference to playstyle other than size. There are ‘normal’ sized races, like the humans and elves -

And there are smaller races, like the dwarves and goblins:

The smaller races are physically smaller in the game, and can enter smaller places like pass beneath a one-block space. If you want to thoroughly explore caves, make a small character – but I haven’t found a place I couldn’t explore yet with my normal-sized characters.

The game is like Terraria in that you can create both characters and worlds, and characters are not bound to the worlds they were created with (that is, you can take one character in and out of different worlds freely).

ENTERING THE WORLD

You’ll enter the world you’ve created ‘in the middle of nowhere’. You can move around with WSAD, zoom in and out with the mouse wheel and rotate the camera with the right mouse. To climb, approach a vertical service and hit CTRL and W. Climbing will use up your stamina; putting points in the climbing skill (more below in Skills) will let you climb for longer.

The game will create a region name for you and that’ll show in your minimap on the top-right; for example, “Lands of Garia”. Hit M to bring up your world map:

A few things here to note: you’ll see a town somewhere nearby. You’ll want to make your way there. This will be your first ‘base’ – a friendly pocket of civilisation where you can advance time in Inns (more below) as well as sell your loot. The crossed swords on the map indicate ‘dungeons’ – these come in two forms in Cube World. Structured places like castles, and unstructured places like scattered ruins. Both are packed full of mobs so you’ll want to do some preparation before going there – see Missions below. Also note the colours of these place names, if you can see any on your map – blue is suited to your level, grey is easiest, red is hardest, and all scales in between. This also applies to the mobs you’ll encounter in the game, so let’s move on to this.

Pressing V toggles mob health bars on and off;

Very very useful when you’re out in the wild and start running into creatures – it might save your life to be able to tell from a little distance away whether or not that four-pack of wizards wandering near you is hostile or friendly. Blue is friendly, green is neutral, red is hostile. You can’t attack blue, you CAN attack green but they won’t attack you first, and red will attack you always if you get near enough. As mentioned above, also note the name colour;

If it’s red, you may want to haul ass outta there.

One survival tip: when you’re out in the wild you’ll find camp sites. You can cook food on the fires, but also noteworthy is that you’ll heal if you sleep in the beds. Don’t waste your potions or food if you’re near a camp site :)

FIGHTING

Your HP (health) and MP (Mana) are displayed at the bottom of your screen, along with your skills, stamina and ‘quick item’;

Mouse 1 is your standard attack. Mouse 2 is your secondary attack and I think usually involves your MP bar. Any extra skills you pick up as you level will be in slots 1 – 4. Your quick item, reserved for potions and noms, is accessed with Q. To change what’s in your quick item slot from the items you’re carrying, hit Tab. This will pull up a wheel selection;

A and D spin the selection and Tab will close the menu again. It’s a bit cumbersome to do during a fight but sometimes you want to switch from food to a potion mid-battle, so it’s worth knowing.

MP works in different ways for different classes. Some classes start with a full bar that slowly regenerates, and others with an empty bar that fills up during combat and empties again out of combat.

You use MP to execute your special moves (I think – not 100% sure on the details) and at least from the classes I’ve played so far, it’s worth waiting until your MP bar is full before using a special move.

Dodging is done with the middle mouse button, in whichever direction you’re moving at the time. This consumes stamina, and the bar will appear after you dodge. Dodging is very important in combat for surviving tougher fights – every time you dodge you’re immune to attacks for 0.6 seconds.

If your fight goes well and you kill your foe, you’ll want to collect all that phat loot. E will pick up items on the ground next to you. This also applies to things like heartflowers, mushrooms and decorations like candles. They’ll go straight into your inventory.

INVENTORY AND INTERFACE

Pressing F1 will bring up the keyboard map;

This outlines every keyboard shortcut. I don’t think there’s currently a way to remap keys.

Pressing Escape will show you the keys for your main interface windows:

F1 is the keyboard map as above. X brings up your skill tree – see the Skills section below for more info.

B brings up your inventory, organised into tabs; equipment, items, ingredients, pets. ‘Special’ is reserved for things like boats and hang-gliders (to glide, press G with your hang glider in the ‘Special’ slot of your inventory, but make sure you’ve unlocked the hang gliding skill by putting points in climbing).

Pressing F will equip your lantern. You don’t need to buy one – you start with it. You can fight normally with it equipped.

C brings up your crafting interface (more on crafting below) – note the separation of recipe types in the tabs across the top:

M is your map as covered, and O is your Options (changing resolution, etc.), Start Menu and Exit;

SKILLS

X brings up your skills for leveling. Note the skill progression; leveling your pet leads to pet mounts, swimming leads to boats, and climbing leads to hang gliding (don’t do what I did and buy a hang glider from the vendor only to run off the nearest, highest cliff and fall with a resounding splat because I didn’t realise hang gliding was a skill only received after leveling climbing…).

The top two icons on your skill tree denote your ‘specialisation’. These are covered more on the Cube World Wiki, but to swap profession, you need to visit your class trainer;

They’re found in towns, and I’ll cover navigating towns below. As you level up you’ll get skill points that you can assign via your X menu; click where you want the points to go, and then click ‘learn’ to assign them permanently. Note though that your specialisation can be swapped for free, without a class trainer, before investing any skill points, so if you don’t want to be the default, do that before getting started. You can also refund the points you’ve spent on a skill by right-clicking that skill while standing at your class trainer.

CRAFTING

Your crafting window shows everything you can craft. For most things you’ll need to be standing at the appropriate crafting station (loom, workbench, smelter, etc) but there are some things you can craft ‘on the fly’, like healing potions from water and heart flowers. (Note: to make water bottles, buy some glass bottles from the general goods vendor in town, head to the nearest body of water (you can jump into the wells in town!), stand in the water, bring up your crafting menu, and look for the ‘water bottles’ crafting option).

Note that each class can only craft gear associated with that class. Also, the base material for crafting armour for each glass differs;

  • Mage: Crafts silk armour made from cobwebs harvested from scrub;
  • Warrior: Crafts iron armour made from iron blocks;
  • Rogue: Crafts cotton armour made from cotton buds harvested from cotton plants;
  • Ranger: Crafts linen armour made from plant fibers harvested from bushes.

CITIES

When you reach your first city, open up your world map and zoom in (mouse wheel) until the Inn labels appear. There’ll be several Inns in a city. Inside are inkeepers, and when you speak to them (R), you’ll hear a sound that indicates you slept the night at the Inn and it’s now daytime outside.

Each city is split into districts;

I haven’t found anything unique at the pet district yet, but the others are as follows: your class trainers in the Adventurer District, crafting stations in the Crafting district and shops in the Trade district. The first shop you’ll want to find is what I’m calling the general goods merchant, with the sack on the sign;

As well as selling the glass flasks that are essential for making healing potions, each general goods merchant will sell one kind of pet food;

There’s a list on the Cube World Wiki of the currently known tame-able animals and what food they require, so once you’ve got some pet food, head over to find out what it will let you tame.

Other shops in the Trade District include weapons, armour and an identifier who will identify things called ‘leftovers’ (items labelled ‘leftover’ that you sometimes find from mobs – take them to the identifier, right-click the leftovers to move it into the identifying window,  and for a small charge they’ll clean the gunk off and reveal a shiny item underneath).

MISSIONS

If you open your map you’ll see crossed daggers floating over the world. These are Mission spots, and they’re generated daily (so you can talk to an Innkeeper, triggering a new day, to get new missions). Also, some NPCs have speech bubbles over their heads; these are green before you speak to them and white afterwards. Speaking to them, they’ll say ‘Have you explored [area name] yet? Look, I’ve marked the location on your map’.

The mission sites are mostly dungeons. Repeated from above: these come in two forms in Cube World. Structured places like castles, and unstructured places like scattered ruins. Both are packed full of mobs so you’ll want to do some preparation before going there. Also note the colours of these place names, if you can see any on your map - blue is suited to your level, grey is easiest, red is hardest, and all scales in between. When you enter a Mission area on your map, you’ll get a bubble pop up on the right-hand side of your screen that tasks you with killing the ‘leader’ of that area. Boss mobs are easily recognisable by their large size, reddish tint and purple name. Killing the leader of a Mission site will get you a lot of XP, some nice gear, and platinum coins that you can use at the Mission Master. The Mission Master is in the blue-roofed Tower building in the city, and will charge you platinum coins to upgrade a gear item to your current level (so if you find a nice, but low level, item, take it to the Mission Master for an upgrade).

GEAR

Gear is class-specific and each class can only craft, and wear, gear appropriate to their class. There’s another stat you’ll see crop up on gear called ‘power’ – you begin with 0 and gain up to 5 power every time you level (the number seems to vary at different levels, and I’m not sure if it depends on your class either, so I’m keeping this vague), and you can’t equip any item that requires more power than you currently have. There are a few other stats you’ll find on equipment -

  • HP awards you hit points,
  • Crit determines your crit chance,
  • Tempo is your rate of attack,
  • Regen  regenerates your stamina, and
  • Res is your magic resistance.

The armour and weapon vendors in cities sell gear for all classes, but I found I couldn’t use anything they had until I was about level 3 or so. As with other recipies, you’ll learn to craft new gear as you level up, so check your crafting window (C) every time you level.

MODIFYING WEAPONS

There’s a really fun way of modifying your weapons in Cube World – you do it with blocks on a per-voxel basis. Essentially, you expand your weapon by building on to it. Head over to the blacksmith in the crafting district and open (R) the workbench. Right-click your weapon for it to appear in the modification window;

You’ll need cubes to build onto your weapon. Iron cubes are made from mined iron in the furnace, and wood cubes are made from logs at the carpenter via the saw. Now that you’ve got your weapon open in the customisation window, click your cube in the top left so that the number turns blue. The cube, minified, is now attached to your mouse cursor. Rotate your weapon in the view with the middle mouse button (click and drag), and move the cube to where you want to add it to your weapon. It’ll ‘snap’ into place. Each weapon has a number of cubes it can accommodate – in the bottom of the screenie above you can see for my bow it says ‘upgrades 22/32′. Every cube you add to your weapon increases the damage of that weapon.

You’ll also find special spirit cubes from killing rare mobs and bosses. Fire cubes (from normal and rare mobs) increase damage, ice cubes (from rare mobs and bosses) slow enemy attack and movement speed, unholy cubes (from bosses) drain enemy health and wind cubes (from rare mobs and bosses) increase your own attack and movement speed. Each cube has a power number associated with it and can only be used on a weapon of the corresponding power. If you have a stack of same-power cubes you can middle-click the stack to combine them into one more powerful cube; two +1 cubes combined, for example, make one +5 cube.

You can move placed cubes to other positions on the weapon, but you can’t take them off one weapon to use on another weapon.
When you’re done, just walk away from the crafting station and the window will close. :)

PETS

Pets come in three flavours; melee, ranged and tank.  Tank pets generate more ‘aggro’ which means that mobs will (mostly) attack them instead of you. Some pets offer healing to their masters, too, which is nice. Your pet will always target whichever mob has taken the most damage from you. You can have a plethora of tamed pets in your inventory, but only one active at a time.

When you find pet food, a specific kind of food only used to tame various creatures, it will automatically go into the Pet tab of your inventory.

You’ll need to move the food to the Pet slot, bottom right, and approach the relevant beastie with it equipped in order to tame that animal (note: all creatures have specific foods to tame them).

Some pets act as mounts (it says which on the Cube World Wiki), but not until you’ve unlocked the Mount skill by assigning skill points to the Pet Master skill tree when you level.

The blue blobs beneath your pet’s HP and MP bars are its thirst – once you’re able to ride your pet as a mount you’ll notice these blobs gradually decreasing. You can quench your pets’ thirst by standing in some water, and the blobs will quickly refill. :)

The most important thing you’ll need to know about pets, though? Hit Enter to bring up the chat window and type /namepet <name>. The game won’t let you have spaces in your pet names, but you can get around this; type the first word, hit SPACE, then press CTRL and BACKSPACE – the game things the space has gone, but it’s still there – type the second word :)

Another very important thing about your pets – you can recall your pet to you by pressing T. Very handy in fights if they go wandering off or if they otherwise get stuck somewhere. If this doesn’t work, open your inventory and remove and replace the pet from the Pet slot.

    Awesome guide. I’ve gotten a couple hours into Cube World and there were a few things in here I didn’t know. Thanks!

    Do you know what seed you were using and which city you were in when the vendor was selling a chocolate donut?

      Yay! I’ve added in the info about characters/maps :)

  • Hoo

    Thanks for the guide!

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      No problem :D

  • Carus

    With regard to the power mentioned in gear, there’s a minor error: while you do go from 1 to 5 on your first level, it scales non-linearly, so that for all practical purposes, you hit power 100 at level infinity (you can hit power 100, due to rounding errors, but it requires a ridiculous level; 90k+ is the lowest I’ve seen power 100 at)

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      Thanks! I’ve already changed it to be more vague and state that you get ‘up to five’ power and mentioned it’s not constant how much you get. I don’t know yet whether it changes from class to class either.

  • MiKE

    Pet Districts should sell pet food so you can tame them…

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      That’s a good idea. A current ‘shortcut’ strategy is to roll lots of worlds and check out all the towns to buy the different food from the general goods vendor. :)

    • martin

      Also, it seems most people, who tell you which animal likes which food, are in the pet district.

  • Ben

    Couple things I didn’t see mentioned: You can choose a specialization for free without a class trainer before investing any points. You can also right click a skill at a class trainer to refund points.

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      Ah lovely, thanks! I’ll update :)

  • Robert Peacock

    It’s worth highlighting the fact that you can recall your pet by pressing T (this is particularly useful when Line-of-Sight-pulling a group of ranged enemies to ensure that your pet doesn’t go trotting off after them).

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      I actually just found that out myself – thanks, I’ll update!

  • NiSiSuinegEht

    I have found that it is very important to keep your pets alive when trying to level them, as they will lose small amounts of XP every time they die.

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      Is there any good tactic for doing that? All I can think of is fighting single mobs so the pet doesn’t get overwhelmed, and good use of T to recall (though from my experience so far that doesn’t do much – as soon as your pet gets hit it seems to stay in the fight).

      • jacob

        UM ma’am but you can update this and add the lizardman? or frogman? thanks!

        • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

          You mean add the frog race? I haven’t mentioned any of the races, only demonstrated the difference between size of ‘normal’ races and ‘small’ races. The races are all clear in the character creation screen and other than size there’s nothing different between them.

      No prob! :)

  • Rikkera

    Great guide :D I’ve played a number of hours and didn’t know about the V hot key ^_^ One thing to add is that the blobs under the pet’s xp bar is its thirst and it decreases as you ride it. When it reaches zero you can’t ride it until you refill it’s thirst by taking it to water. Whether it has any other effects I don’t know. Hope I helped ^_^

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      That should already be in there, unless you’re looking at a cached version of the page – it’s right down the bottom under Pets. I added it last night. ^.^ Glad you like the guide – thanks for visiting! :)

    How do you rotate your weapon when customizing it? This would make it a lot easier to design your sertain look. :)

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

  • FixSite

    Fix the site cant create account for past couple days losing interest looked like a good game but need more active developers to get the site fixed

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      A friend of mine managed to buy the game this morning, so I think they’re gradually opening up again. I’ve also heard that the store is open for a few hours early EST, from about 4-5am, so if that’s convenient for you you could try then. But yes – they’ll hopefully get it all working again ASAP.

  • Kevro1970

    Thanks for the video and guide. In this day more games are made without guides and such, and can be quite confusing till you just happen to get lucky or stumble onto the answer. guides such as your help new people “jump right in” to the game.

      Cool beans! :D

  • Brandon

    Can you please make a video or show a picture of a ranger pet? I have looked for one and I am really interested in seeing one! Thank you! (Epic game by the way!)

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      Do you mean a ranger pet as in a pet good for the ranger class (any one, really) – or a ranged pet that does ranged damage? There’s a list on the Cube World wiki of the pets and the type of attacks they do – http://wiki.cubeworldforum.org/index.php?title=Pets – so far there are only two ranged; the snout beetle, and the spitter. Snout beetles are bright blue with green faces and you can find them in most grassy areas – spitters are little pink blobs with feet that are commonly around lakes.

  • Anon

    great guide. One thing maybe worth mentioning is that you can jump in the water well in the town to fill your glass bottles – that way you don’t have to leave.

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      Hah, yeah I’ve been doing that. I’ll add it in the guide. :)

  • Papa

    NICE STARTING GUIDE! Make the game include this.

  • Nodar

    Das sieht doch mal vertrauenswürdig und geortnet aus :) like

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      Danke :)

  • HatecrewBodom

    You also didn’t seem to know that as Ranger you don’t need mp to do charge shots, so, you can spam right click for a REALLY fast fire rate. IMPORTANT!!!!! – it will only work if you have a crossbow!!!! It will also do a tiny bit less damage, but it’s worth it. Also as ranger, you can do your second special you unlock (the one where you jump backwards) to your advantage in traveling. What you do is look the OPPOSITE direction where you want to go, then you quickly, jump press two, then G for your hand glider. And with that you should go FLYING. There is also a rarity rating in this game by color. So yellow is the highest rarity, If you create a world and put in the seed 13375 then go to the nearest town, got to the item shop and for 2 copper you can get a yellow colored lamp which is WAY brighter than a normal lamp.

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      The ranger things you mention are game bugs that will, I assume, be patched out eventually. I’ll add the loot tiers though. :)

  • Alex.

    didn’t help, only because I’ve been spending 4-5 hours a day watching Cube World vids…

    Can you leave a little note telling rogue’s to gather Cotton and craft some cotton armor? Cause I did that and I found it very helpful after dying 7 million times

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      I’ll mention the class differences for crafting requirements under the Crafting section :)

  • Jindoohex

    Great guide! Just one question: I attached Unholy and Wind Spirits to my
    weapons but the effect doesn’t seem to occur (Lifesteal & Attack Speed) when I attack hostiles? Does it have something to do with I had only one of each cube, and was able to attach a number of desired Spirits (Up to 16/32 depending on weapon) onto my weapons?

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      The 16/32 slots aren’t specifically for spirits – that denotes the number of extra blocks you can add to a weapon, and mostly those will be the raw resource block that corresponds to the weapon’s material (that is, you can attach 32 iron blocks to a greatsword, 32 wood blocks to a wooden stave, etc.). I don’t even know if it’s possible to attach more than one spirit cube to one weapon. As for them not working – I’ve had a quick search of the interwebs and can’t find anything. It might just be a bug – it’s alpha, after all. I do know that they’ve worked for me – or at least I was able to see the glow when fighting.

    • Fatah Hendrawan

      As far as I know, the effects of a spirit cube only applies to special attacks (right click). I may be wrong though!

  • Bighairman999

    Any easy way to get pancakes

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      If you’re asking for one, the wiki lists that they’re dropped from the following mobs: http://wiki.cubeworldforum.org/index.php?title=Pancakes. There’s also a list on reddit somewhere of world seeds that sell specific foods at the nearest town to spawn.

  • Gerrit

    Very nice guide :). Thank you for posting this this is helping me alot. Bookmarked :)!

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      Thank you! :)

  • Jindoohex

    Why doesn’t +100 Unholy Spirit work on my +100 weapon? :S

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      Not sure – it should work. The wiki says this: “It is to be noted that you cannot place a Spirit Cube on a weapon if the weapon’s power level is below the Spirit Cube’s power level or if the cube’s power level is more than 10 levels below the weapon’s power level.” So equal levels should work fine. Again, might be a bug, or some part of the mechanism that isn’t understood yet.

  • Remmos

    Thanks for the guide, really appreciate it. Love how the google search for “cube world guide” starts with you pointing out “if you’re like me you like reading guides instead of watching a video.” I thought, that’s me! Anyways, thanks from Norway :)

    WelshPIxie: Thanks for your guide. I recognize your name from the Starbound community. Did you have a falling out with them, or are you just so busy with your own company that you haven’t got time to moderate on their forums any longer? I hope to see you in game one of these days and have a laugh or two!

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      Heya! Assuming you’re the same person who contacted me on Steam :D Nah, didn’t have a falling out, just gradually became too busy with my own things to stick around there. They’re in good hands though! :)

    Thank you so much for your help. I started cube world and to be honest I died so many times I almost quit. to see you run from a red team of npc’s made my day. So I have no shame running from those guys. I am now lv 3 and feel more confident. I had a team surprise me in a cave and almost beat them all. (got 2 down before the 3rd killed me) thanks so much.

      Hehe, you’re welcome ^.^ The game’s very tough until you get to level 5 or so, then fights get much easier and you’ll level faster :)

    I’m finding it incredibly hard to level up and find mobs that are not super hard for my level any suggestions/tips?

      The game’s very slow and difficult for the first few levels. Around level three you’ll start to kill things a bit easier – around level 6 you’ll be able to tackle groups of mobs with less difficulty, and it gets easier and easier from there. Just struggle through those first few levels :)

        Thanks just the support I needed :) Nearly level three now and have 3 pets so getting better :)

    I was hesitant about picking up cubeworld at first because I thought it might get boring a bit quickly. Reading this guide has made me realize that there is lots to do in cubeworld, and now I can buy the game and go in being prepared, thanks a bunch, great guide! <3

    The half of the shop/craft window (including customization) is out of my screen so I don’t see it. Someone please help.

      Unfortunately that’s an issue with the core game – the UI doesn’t scale down for smaller resolutions and you will end up with overlapping UI elements. All you can do, I’m afraid, is wait for Wollay to fix it.

    You should consider a bit about seeds so people can know how to choose a good one

    Er… question: I fight a enemy with my boomerang it has a wind spirit and ice spirit and sometimes when I attack enemys they go blue? >.> like their drowning or something can you tell me whats happening when they do that?

  • Ebony

    oh and sorry for double commenting but I just remembered that it onlys happens in water but it only happens with my boomerang with the spirit cubes…

      The spirit cubes have effects depending what cubes they are – ice slows enemy movement and attack and wind increases your own movement and attack; I think it’s the ice effect you’re seeing :)

    I love the game,but I keep running into (usually literally) The blue fog problem(and the “please wait” screen).
    Is that unfixable because of some hardware problem,or is there an (easy) fix for that?

    • http://welshpixie.com/ Welsh Pixie

      I’ve no idea :( I haven’t encountered it myself, but the friend I know who HAVE encountered it think it’s because of lower spec hardware. Not sure what kind of rig you’re running it on but apparently Cube World’s pretty heavy and needs a decent machine for the blue fog to not be present.

    This was very helpful for me! Thanks :)

    Thanks, I did prefer to read. The videos I watch sometimes for help makes me feel like someone is grating cheese on my ear, everyone wants to be a star or stand out. FAIL
    information is what matters

    Hi, I just started this game and your guide is very helpful. I was wondering though, how were you able to change the skin color of your ranger? Maybe I’m just overlooking it, but I don’t remember seeing that option when I created my character.

    when i try to open the cube world mini demo it opens my minecraft laucher. how do i get it to open the cube world launcher

  • Qinette

    Thank you so much for this guide!

    I found some info on power according to the Cube World site:
    “Power … scales tangentially. So while levels can be between 1 and infinity, the corresponding power is between 1 and 100. A power of 100 can only be reached with an infinite level. In lower levels, power increments are more notable than in higher levels.”
