—By looking out at the surrounding area from the watchtower, information covering a wide area will become available, providing valuable information for missions and exploring.

—In the forests, mountain ranges and waterfronts far from pathways are clusters of land where materials can be found. Rare items can be obtained, so discovering these clusters will assist in effectively advancing the crafting of weapons and items.

—By setting box traps and leaving them for a certain amount of time, items such as tools can be obtained. There are three sizes of traps (large, medium and small) and bigger traps increase the chances of obtaining more valuable items.
