AbyssRium World Events

Yes, there’s already an event. Kind of bad news, since in both other games, once events started happening regularly, all other features were abandoned.

There’s really nothing to events in this game other than exploring Tier 3+ Exploration areas for Event Crafting Materials, crafting the Event Fish (just one), and Settling level 3 Event Fish (anywhere) to get a second set of crafting materials to create the Decorations for the event.

The listed information is wrong (what a surprise). To complete the event, search in the third Tier of exploration areas or higher. These are the areas that drop the red Tropical Flower and green Tropical Leaf items which you’ll need make the event fish.

To get Tropical Petals to buy decorations in the event, you will need to Settle the Tropical Fish in great quantities, a few dozen to even get close to one of each. Fortunately, they don’t cost vitality, but will require many many explorations. I recommend avoiding Tier 1 and 2 Explorations where possible and focusing on higher levels for the event drops. It’s easy to run out of Shells anyway.

To make the fish, select the Event icon (far right tile) in the Fish gachapon menu.

AbyssRium World Fish List

Fish are used to generate AO (packing peanut icon). Fish can be created by tapping the Coralite below the Vitality bubble. This took me embarrassingly long to figure out. Tap the bubbles above fish to level them up at first, and then to collect AO. Fish must be max level to send out for Exploration or Settle.

Sea Creatures

Sea Creatures are passive buffs separate from Fish. They’re unlocked by shards earned from watching the treasure chests in the “rainbow coral” icon. You can place all Sea Creatures at once, no need to store them. Their buffs are NOT active unless they are placed in the tank.

Despite there being so many different creatures, there are only two different effects (though different creatures have slightly better/worse stats than others). Sea Creatures either Auto Harvest AO for a certain amount of time while AFK and give a small boost to their harvested AO, or they add Air Bubbles and Purity.

Note that even though some of these can be obtained as IAP, all of them can be obtained from Piece Boxes alone and thus F2P. The cost in Pieces may increase after obtaining a level, but the first level is the most significant change in effect (per level).

Auto Harvest AO Sea Creatures

These creatures are rarer, and swim freely in the tank. They’ll swim to fish to collect their AO for you, and add a bonus too.

  • Sea Urchin Hamster
    • 10 Pieces
  • Manatee
    • Appears to be a forced/free unlock in early Quests
    • 10 Pieces
  • Shark Border Collie
    • 20 Pieces
  • Starfish Meow
    • 20 Pieces
  • Blue Sea Fairy
    • 30 Pieces
Air Bubble/Purity Sea Creatures

These creatures are more common, and are placed like decorations. They have little animations that automatically play.

  • Hermit Crab
    • 5 Pieces
  • Warrior Gazami Crab
  • Sea Raccoon
  • Hide-And-Seek Clownfish
  • Cave Octopus
  • Flipping Blue Crab
  • Bunny Slug
  • Pencil Squid Brothers
  • Twin Sea Otters
  • Sea Dog
  • Atlantic Footballfish
  • Seal Family

Exploration Areas

Exploration Areas tier 3 and above can drop Event Items if any Event is active (not 2 like the game says). Use Search to find areas by drops, for example search “recipe” for all the areas that have Recipe pieces.

Thanks to Bevenw’s AbyssRium Wiki for collecting some of this information (and their participation in our Discord)!

Areas are unlocked based on your total Stars. Stars increase an area’s drop count/chances, so you should try and unlock stars as soon as possible before grinding an area too much, as it gives more bang for your buck. Each area tells you its unlock conditions ingame.

Tier 2 unlock: 4 Stars
Tier 3 Unlock: 15 Stars
Tier 4 unlock: 30 Stars
Tier 5 unlock: 56 Stars
Tier 6 unlock: 87 Stars

AbyssRium World Gameplay Info

How it’s different from AbyssRium

AbyssRium World is played in landscape mode, the first change you’ll notice. The game is quest-based to start with, so you shouldn’t get too lost early on. Just follow your next quest and do what the game tells you to do.

The game is much more of a Management Simulator with constant counting down timers than AbyssRium. It’s not very idle so far. It feels more like Farmville than AbyssRium. There’s still fish of course.

Facebook saves are back. History tells us from the last AbyssRium games, if you log in as Guest, your save is as good as dead. Log in with Google Play, iOS Game Center, or Facebook saves immediately to protect your save. You should already have a Google Play/Game Center account by default more or less, so just sign in, you’ll save yourself the pain later.

You summon Fish in AbyssRium World by creating items they like instead of just buying them directly like AbyssRium or Pole. The fish you actually create is randomly selected from the possible list of fish from that item (ugh).

Currencies

Vitality

This is used to buy a scant few Decoration items, upgrade your Factories, and of course to create new fish. Upgrade it only by upgrading the Coralite and placing certain Decoration items. The best way to gain more is simply check every 30-60 minutes when you can, and upgrade your Coralite as soon as you can.

Buying certain Decorations can raise the amount of Vitality earned per ‘tick’ as well as the maximum storage. In opinion raising storage is more valuable.

Coral Fragments & Seaweed Fragments

Just grinding for Vitality wasn’t enough, so this game added farms similar to the original AbyssRium. Various upgrades and most importantly most Fish require Coral and Seaweed to create. These are obtained from Factories, which reduce the Purity of your water when upgraded and cost AO to create the fragments.

Coral Fragments are far easier to get as the Giant Coral Tree gives you a large amount every few hours. Save your AO for Seaweed unless you really need more coral fragments.

AO is needed to upgrade Colonies and the Coralite as well as make Fragments, so don’t try and keep your factories running 24/7 unless you really don’t need the AO for anything else, which you probably do.

Crafting Materials

Obtain these by Exploring, there’s quite a lot of them. Just try to keep a moderate stock of everything and then seek out what you still need. Fish only usually require items from the “tier” at or below them, so high level fish won’t require very low level materials.

Air Bubbles

Air Bubbles limit the amount of Fish you can have. Each Fish consumes a different amount of Air Bubbles. This is the top left icon under the Coralite’s menu on the main screen. Having more fish out is important as it will increase your AO income potential.

Colonies are the primary way of getting more Air Bubbles; level them up to max as soon as you can. Sea Creatures (the ones you get from Shards) can also add a good supply of extra bubbles.

Ancient Coins

The cyan “shell” coins, these are only earned from quests or 2 per day from the Daily Quest. Save these up for exclusive cosmetic items or the recipes in the Random Shop. Each Colony has a skin that can only be unlocked with Ancient Coins They can be used in the Giant Clam gacha but it’s a waste: save them for items only obtained by Ancient coins.

Blue Scales

Most Decoration items require these, they’re mostly earned from Settling fish. You’ll need a decent amount of these to complete the story as it will require placing decorations.

You can cheaply acquire small amounts with minimal effort by settling large numbers of small fish leveled up to level 3. Higher tier fish give more Blue Scales at level 3, but in my opinion it’s not worth the additional resources and more importantly, how long it takes to level up higher level fish.

Multi Chromatic Scales

Required for some high-tier Decorations, these are obtained by Settling fish that are Tier 6 (area 6, the icy one) or above.

Purity

The white sparkle. Lower Purity reduces the amount of AO you get from Fish. More pollution will reduce this amount. There are penalties below 70 Purity (20% reduction) and below 30 (50% reduction). Expanding the village will make purity more difficult to manage.

Decoration Points

The rainbow sparkles. Earned by upgrading the Coralite, Factory, and Colonies. These are used to summon fish; each Recipe can only hold X amount of fish per Y amount of decoration points. The exact formula varies between each recipe with lower tier recipes needing more, but more decoration points will consistently mean more fish per recipe.

Decoration points are primarily acquired by upgrading the various parts of the Village; the Coralite, Colonies, but also buying decoration items with Blue Scales. Getting lots of decorations is also useful as it improves Vitality.

Pearls

Of course there’s Pearls. The Premium Currency, these can be gotten from Achievements, paying money of course, and some tasks like Quests. Recommend you save these for Item Safe expansions (you’ll need many), Random Shop Recipes, and perhaps Gold Piece Boxes. They can get unique coral skins for Colonies if you want, though the Vitality ones are cheaper and almost as good stat-wise.

I don’t recommend spending them for Fish materials. You’ll always need to go on more explorations anyway. You’ll run out of pearls very fast if you try to spam through fish.

Daily Quest

The Daily Quest upgrades with the Main Quest, becoming slightly harder and giving slightly more rewards. Everything should be pretty easy, some are just a factor of waiting and setting up explorations/factories.

If you can’t make any new fish, Settle your cheapest fish and re-create them, they are extremely cheap, level to 3 in no time, and are created in 10 seconds.

Calendar Reward

Every day you must manually open the Calendar menu to claim rewards. You can see rewards in advance and make up one missed day’s worth of rewards by watching an ad. Every 3 days in a row you claim these, you get 10 pearls extra.

Present Box

Every ? minutes a present box appears by the Coralite and can be opened by watching an ad. The box either contains 2 Pearls, AO,  Vitality, Seaweed or Coral Fragments.

Main Quest & Biomes

The main quest is a series of mostly basic tasks that give fairly minor rewards, but completing every other chapter unlocks a new major area/biome, tier of fish, and thus a tier of exploration as well. Some areas include new features as well.

Each area is a new Biome which unlocks new fish, two new Colonies to provide Air Bubbles and Purity, a new Factory to produce Seaweed or Coral Fragments, and may have an exclusive feature to grant items. They’re also just nice to have as they add more visual variety and more space to place decorations. Once unlocked, a Biome will never be lost.

Be careful when expanding to new islands, they can change your air bubble and Purity levels at first, especially if you immediately upgrade any new Factories on them. Try to keep Purity above 100 by not upgrading Factories until you upgrade the new Colonies.

Each island costs a few thousand vitality at the least, but the vitality cost will be nothing compared to the effort of completing the quests. You can check them well in advance.

  • Chapter 1: Lonely Coralite
    • Unlocks Great Coral Tree Biome
      • Unlocks Tier 2 Fish
      • Coral Tree Island has a tree you can rub every couple hours for free Coral Fragments. This makes Coral easier to get than Seaweed, so focus on Seaweed production
  • Chapter 2: Great Coral Tree
  • Chapter 3: The Clean Sea And Fish
    • Completing this chapter unlocks Giant Clam Habitat Biome
      • Unlocks Tier 3 Fish
      • The Giant Clam isn’t very useful. It’s a gachapon for Shells, but it costs Pearls and Ancient Coins, both of which are better used to unlock exclusive items instead
  • Chapter 4: Treasure Inside Giant Clam
  • Chapter 5: How Fish Swim
    • Unlocks Eternally Shining Lighthouse Biome
      •  Unlocks Tier 4 Fish
      • The lighthouse is a ‘shell game’ kind of thing where you can earn pearls. There’s three Clams which have 2, 5, or 8 pearls. You chose one (doesn’t matter which) and get a random Pearl amount. You can watch an ad to open a second random Clam. You cannot open the third.
  • Chapter 6: Light that illuminates the deep
  • Chapter 7: Power of the Mystical Pearl
    • If you’re confused by “place max level colonies” it just means to upgrade all available colonies to the highest level.
    • Completing this Unlocks Octopus’ Pirate Ship Biome
      • Unlocks Tier 5 Fish
      • No special building yet
  • Chapter 8: Sunken Pirate Ship

AbyssRium World Achievements

Achievements may have near infinite levels so I won’t track their requirements or rewards, but only their conditions. All achievements give Pearls, the premium currency. They have different maximum amounts, but the amount of pearls you can get from achievements is technically limited.

Shop Menu

Piece Box

The crown jewel of the shop, every 2 hours you get a Wooden Piece Box for watching an ad, and every 3 days you get a Silver Piece Box for free. Piece Boxes contain “Sea Creature” pieces, for the creatures in the Shell menu.

These creatures either auto-harvest AO for you or increase Air Bubbles and Purity. A notification of a shaking rainbow treasure chest will appear in the top right when an ad-based Piece Box is ready to open.

If you’re spending pearls, I highly recommend waiting for enough to open the Golden Piece Box. It guarantees 1 Ancient Coin and at least one AO harvesting creature (often a few) which are the real prizes from the piece box.

Random Shop

The only other section aside from Piece Box you should be looking at if you’re F2P, the Random Shop has random items for sale every X hours, you can pay to refresh the list but I don’t recommend doing so, the game is slow and you’ll have plenty of time to buy stuff.

Most stuff here is unimportant, but there are exclusive recipes here, listed below. Note that these can be bought with either Pearls or Ancient Coins, so if a piece shows up with a currency you’re lacking in, it will come by later in the other currency. Once you’ve completed a recipe, it will be removed from the pool so no worries about duplicates.

  • Green Teddy Bear Recipe
  • Green Dice Recipe
  • Rainbow Beach Ball Recipe
  • Shiny Music Box Recipe
  • Ferris Wheel Music Box Recipe

The prices rise pretty brutally for the last few Recipes!

In App Purchases

Based on my history with AbyssRium, I strongly advise against making In App Purchases with real money, and won’t be tracking information related to them.

My usual advice in these games is I only pay for significant, permanent boosts that can’t easily be obtained with gameplay. There’s no such thing currently in AbyssRium World, it’s all temp boosts.

Packages

Bundled stuff, note that these creatures can all be acquired from Piece Boxes. Surprisingly, nothing yet is exclusive to buying.

Charge

Where you buy Pearls/Vitality, recommend ignoring.

Booster

Time Limited boosters for vitality/AO. Very limited, whale hunting stuff.

AbyssRium World FAQ

Where is Settings?

Tap the Coralite icon in the top left of the screen to change your profile name/greeting, battery life/video quality settings, language etc.

How Do I Protect My Save

If you log in as Guest, your save is as good as dead. Log in with Google Play, iOS Game Center, or Facebook saves immediately to protect your save.

How Do I Save Across Platforms?

If you want to move a save between iOS and Android, you’ll need to use a Facebook save. Note I haven’t tested this yet myself.

Can’t Play AbyssRium World in Nox Player

Nox Player defaults to Android 5, a very old version of Android. You’ll need to create an Android 7 emulator in Nox to play it. Search your PC for “Multi Drive” (installed with Nox), open it, click the 3 dots next to “Add Emulator” and pick Android 7.

abyssrium world Nox player

AbyssRium World may freeze on the initial loading screen. It just seems to be random, sometimes I can get in, sometimes I have to close and restart the app to get it to work. Your (android) cloud save will be there as long as you log in with Google Play.

AbyssRium World Isn’t Out Yet?

For some users AbyssRium World is already out. Some people see a future date for it. Not sure what the deal is yet. It will be out for everyone soon enough, if you’re on iOS and it says it comes out later there’s nothing you can do but wait.

AbyssRium World Isn’t In The App Store

If your device doesn’t show AbyssRium World in the app store, it’s probably just not compatible and you won’t be able to play on that device.

Can’t get ads to watch/ Same Ad Every Time

Clearing your device’s Advertising ID may help, follow the steps in the ads crash guide.

Oh god, oh h*ck I didn’t preregister!

Literally doesn’t matter, just check the ingame mail and you’ll have the Pink Baby Ray if you play early enough. No mobile game can ever tell if you preregister, everyone gets preregistration rewards.

I don’t have the update!

AbyssRium titles tend to release updates and even events slowly. Wait a couple days before panicking.

  1. In any recipe, only some fish are available at a certain time, but some of the unavailable ones (filefish, tuna) are necessary for ideal settling? Are multiple settlings even after 3 stars or increasing the decoration level required after the maximum number of fish been created?

    Are multiple settlings in the same place necessary to get multicolored scales, even with fish level 7 or above? In no case where I have tried to settle a level 7 fish the first time has the offered reward been multicolored scales.

    Because of this, I am stuck in the ice world.

    1. Not sure what you mean about only available at certain times, only event fish are like that and they never matter for anything but their own event. Filefish are available for example, you just have to keep making the recipe that can summon the fish of the type and tier you want to settle.

      I dunno what you mean about multiple settlings, all the 3* requirements are listed ingame very clearly. Some do require multiple settlings, some are just different from others, you just have to do whatever it says nothing else will work at all.

      Honestly no idea about multicolored scales yet, the game got super boring and I haven’t gotten to a point you can get them, asking some people if they know now.

      1. When I say “multiple settlings,” I mean settling the same place several times even after the three stars. So, hypothetically, using arbitrary numbers, Iwonder if you have to settle the same place three times and get blue scales, and only on the fourth time do you get multicolored scales.

        It does seem that so far, I get the same eligible fish each time I do a given recipe, so, no tuna or small sharks. I wonder if you get certain fish only if you do the maximum number of fish for a recipe, get the decoration level up to a certain amount, and only then become eligible for other fish.

        On releasing the fish from the ice chrysalis, the game demanded two rounds on the first go, one of soap bubbles and another of glass spheres, and on the second round, it demands more. The ice fish takes a very long time to level up, and I don’t know how it meets settlement requirements for fish types (e.g. goby, butterfly fish, etc).

  2. Really LOVE your work here, you invest a huge amount of time making these…recently found you -I’ll be here frequently. Prob: I HAVE Uupgraded all my areas; both options say “you are at max level” – game keeps sending me to one area that I didn’t unlock #3 SKIN for but since I heave the skin above it unlocked/on area, I felt I surpassed that…any ideas? What am I missing?? Thanks very much, Kelley in CT

    1. Not sure, make sure you check the upgrade not skin level for ALL colonies. Skins aren’t required for max, only upgrading with AO

    1. Not really sure what you mean. If you mean the stars, it tells you exactly what to do in each area at the side
