Below are a list of helpful tips for your first day as a new player in eRepublik.
1) Upload a citizen avatar . Not only does this make your citizen unique, it gives you five experience points the first time you do it.
2) Get a job . Like in the real world, you need a job to earn income so that you can purchase goods. Apply for whatever job pays the best in the beginning.
3) Once you have a job, work . You can work once per day, and each time you work you gain five experience points, in addition to your wage.
4) Now it’s time to train . Training helps build strength, which allows you to do more damage on the battlefield when you can fight (after reaching level two). It also gives you four experience points each time you train, which can be done once per day.
Congratulations, you have reached level two! You are now able to contribute to your country’s cause on the battlefield.
5) Fight! Fight! Fight! Fighting, while not necessary to be successful in e-Sim, is a great way to advance your level much more quickly and also allows even the lowest ranking of citizens to contribute directly to the advancement of their country in e-Sim. With every time you fight on a battlefield, you gain one experience point, a various amount of military rank points, and add to your side’s total damage.
To locate a battle you can participate in directly from your country, look on the right side of your home screen under the battles tab. If there are no battles that you can fight in from your home country, locate the battles page, decide on a battle you would like to participate in, and then travel to a region of one of the countries involved. Because you start off with four Q5 (Quality 5) moving tickets as a new citizen, you will choose the Q5 option for moving ticket on the travel page.
Once you have found a battle to fight in, open up the battlefield page, and proceed to fight by either pressing the Fight button, or the Berserk button (this is the same as pressing the fight button five times).
While there are many positives to fighting, there is also a negative. Each time you fight, you lose ten points of health (so 50 points if you Berserk). As your citizen only starts off with 100 health, you could see how this can quickly become a problem. Fortunately, each day there are two ways to recover health manually, and one way that health is recovered automatically.
The two manual ways are through the use of food and gift products. With each type of product, you are able to recover 10 health per quality of the product, per use, up to the use limit of each product for your citizen. The quality of the product is designated by it’s ‘Q’ level, which goes from one to five. The use limit for a new citizen is 10 for both food and gifts, but it can be increased later through the acquisition of a house (food limit) or estate (gift limit).
As an example, all new citizens start off with 10 each of Q1 food and gifts. This means that on your first day you can recover 100 health through the use of food, and 100 health through the use of gifts. (It is recommended that you use all 10 of each product type on your first day, this way you can maximize the amount of experience and rank gained.) In the future you will use your acquired currency to purchase your food and gifts off of the product market.
The automatic way that health is recovered each day is done each new day in e-Sim. Every time the clock strikes 00:00 in-game, you citizen will automatically recover 50 health. Because of this, it is recommended that you never end your day above 50 health so that you do not waste any of this “free” automatic health. Ideally, you end every day at exactly 50 health, so each time you begin a new day, you have full 100 health.
Once you have finished all of your fighting, you will want to return to your homeland (if you aren't there already) where you can retire for the day. Rest well citizen, you earned it!
And that brings an end to this guide. Beyond your first day, you will continue working, training, and fighting to build your citizen level, and soon enough you will be able to vote in elections, run companies, play the markets, band together with others in a military unit, or run for a political seat in your country’s government.
