As a new owner of an alpaca farm it’s time to fill it with all sorts of cute alpacas from your adventures across the broader game world that come in a diverse roster of 127 colours. Starting with a single alpaca on your personal farm your objective is to find and capture them all for your colour dex. Colours for alpaca fur in Alpaca World are all single coloured and range from black to lime to eggplant, sea green or imperial violet. While visual is one consideration when finding an alpaca players also need to consider that the wool they produce is directly tied to particular colours.

Black and white for example are the most profitable at 450 respectively with a sharp drop from there all the way to dull violet, orange, flora and several other colours at only 160. Taking your first alpaca and a starting five ropes players will adventure out into the wild where you’ll encounter other alpacas in the wild grass areas of the game. When this happens the battle screen will appear where players can either battle for experience or attempt to capture the alpaca to add them to your team.

Battles are typical for the genre and turn based affairs with the faster alpaca taking the first move and each alpaca has the same four moves; tackle, m-bullet, meteor and mega impact. While tackle and m-bullet can be used an unlimited number of times meteor and mega impact are limited to 5 uses each before needing to be restored.

Wild alpacas are captured with ropes which also show the percentage chance of capture which varies based on the quality of rope and the health of your intended target. Once captured they’ll appear on your farm where they will also provide you a consistent income of alpaca wool based on the values noted above which is the main way to earn money for items, accessories and farm upgrades.

Accessories is where the cuteness factor of Alpaca World is introduced with items to dress up your alpaca with head, face, neck, back, foot and orbit accessories. Additionally the farm upgrades let you collect more wool, house a larger number of alpacas or increase health recovery rates. All of this combines to provide a great sense of progression to your alpaca empire and pairs with your alpaca rank which increases as you perform certain game actions.

These ranks are primarily the gates to accessing new hill locations that spans from the beginner hill that starts unlocked to the master hill spot at level 45 when players are deemed to be an alpaca specialist. These ranks also allow players to unlock the breeding mechanic (level 5) after capturing 4 alpacas that provides an alternative acquisition option on your farm.

Summary:

  • Hunt for different colour alpacas and dress them up with accessories as you attempt to fill up your colour dex with all 127 unique colours.
  • Battle against wild alpacas for items and experience while growing your collection.
  • Use ropes to capture wild alpacas for your farm on the path to alpaca specialist.
  • Breed alpacas together for more combinations for your farm land.
  • Progress from beginner to master hill with various locations in between with their own coloured alpacas and strength levels.
