How to Increase Well-Being and Unlock Iron Teeth in Timberborn
The Timberborn city building game has cute beavers as its characters. If you’ve just started, only the Folktails faction is available. However, later on you should have access to the iron teeth. Here’s our guide to help you increase the well-being of your community so you can unlock the Iron Teeth in Timberborn.
Timberborn Guide: How to Increase Wellness and Unlock the Iron Teeth Faction
The first thing you’ll want to take note of when starting your Timberborn campaign is the welfare of the Folktails people. You can click the leaf icon in the upper left corner of the HUD to view it. Likewise, you will notice that each beaver has its own welfare statistics.
Well-being includes 15 factors such as hunger, thirst, social life, pleasure, spirituality, etc. All the beavers in the community are affected (knowledge is the only exception since it only applies to adults). To unlock the Iron Teeth faction, you will need to achieve an average of eight well-being points as Folktails.
Hunger, thirst, sleep and social life
Ideally, you would want to maximize the facets that are fairly easy to stimulate (i.e. hunger, thirst, and sleep). You can manage them if you follow the tutorial tasks, such as growing, collecting water, and possibly building pavilions.
For the social life category, you can click on the Leisure tab to make a campfire (which does not require any scientific point). Five beavers will be able to visit each. There is also another structure called the roof terrace. It can be placed on lodges and other flat and solid surfaces. Unfortunately, this can be a bit costly in terms of materials as it needs to be connected to an elevated path. You’d better just focus on the campfires.
Aesthetics and respect
You can open the Decorations tab to see the objects that affect the aesthetics. You may need to unlock these buildings by spending science. These fixtures include roofs (to be placed on pavilions), shrubs and scarecrow. We suggest you save enough until you can unlock the beaver statue (500 science points). This enhances the aesthetics in a 3 × 3 tile area.
As for the items that affect admiration, they can be found in the Monuments tab. Unfortunately, they are extremely expensive both in science points and in raw materials.
Spirituality, leisure and nutrition
If you have the extra science, you can check out the Hobbies tab to get the temple (300 sciences) and the carousel (700 sciences). The former increases spirituality and the latter increases pleasure, although it requires a source of power / energy. As far as we can tell, these are district-wide as well, so you don’t have to worry too much as every beaver in your village will likely be using these lights.
Finally, nutrition is affected by the bread created from your bakery (160 science). Unfortunately, it can take a while. You will need to grow wheat, then refine it through the Flour Mill (180 science and requires an energy source).
Try to choose specific areas of well-being that you can enhance at Timberborn. Do not try to increase everything at the same time or it will be difficult to try to manage them all. Very soon, you should be able to unlock the Iron Teeth faction, which is primarily geared towards industrial advancements.
