Q: What is the main goal of Gold Fever? A: Whilst there are many things one can do in Gold Fever that can be considered “Main Goals” like exploring, harvesting, hunting, or just generally running around, the main goal of Gold Fever is obtaining gold. This gold can then be traded and/or invested which will yield real-world profits. Each player will be given a plethora of options to participate in the Free Economy, all of which are created to provide players with ways to profit depending on the effort, dedication, and of course a bit of luck.
Q: How do players obtain gold? A: The main source of gold in Gold Fever are Mining Claims. Gold extracted from Mining Claims can be transferred into NGL tokens.
Q: What are Mining Claims? A: Mining Claims are instanced PvP zones in which both factions fight for the gold inside them. Each Mining Claim has a predetermined minable amount of gold depending on the type of the Mining Claim.
Q: What goals does each faction have within the Mining Claims? A: The Adventurer players will fight to extract as much gold as possible before the event is over, the Tribal players try to prevent the Adventurers from extracting gold and return the gold to the place where it was gathered from. Q: What types of Mining Claims are there? A: There are two types of Mining Claims within Gold Fever: Integrated within the game and purchasable by players for a limited time.
- Free - These PvP Arena events are queue-based and free to enter, however they offer the least amount of gold density.
- Premium - Purchasable by players as an entry pass, these mining claims offer bigger gold density. The queue is composed of license owners.
- Purchasable mining claims. Players own the mining claim for a limited amount of time. By doing so they control the entry fee and percentage of the extracted gold they keep for themselves.
Q: How much gold does each Mining Claim contain? A: Each Mining Claim contains a limited amount of gold that is defined by, terrain surface, amount of people allowed to enter the arena, quality of the gold itself, location, demand as well as supply. Once the gold is gone - it’s gone forever!
Q: Is there any ruleset for the instanced PvP Arenas? A: There are certain rule sets and requirements for different types of Arenas:
- Each arena informs players on how much gold is available for extraction before the player queues for it.
- Each arena has a certain reputation threshold that a player must meet if he wants to queue for a game.
- Each arena has a predetermined duration in which players are encouraged to extract as much gold as possible before the timer runs out.
Q: What are the benefits of owning a mining license? A: Whenever a player purchases a mining license, they essentially own it for a period of time and as such have the rights to all the gold that is contained within that Mining Claim.
Q: What happens when license owners host PvP Arena events? A: Mining claim license owners have the option to set requirements for entry into the Arena itself. After the conclusion of such an event, the gold is split between the owner and the adventurers that took part in the event, in a ratio that is predetermined before the event starts.

Q: What does it take to use NFT transport? A: You as the player have two options when it comes to NFT transport, one of them is to rent and another is to purchase it permanently. These NFTs (aside from personal use) can then be rented or leased to other players as a form of passive income.

The differentiation comes in their speed and weight capacity. Donkeys are slower and less capable of carrying heavy loads than horses, however, their advantage is their cost. Donkeys are significantly cheaper to buy and/or rent which in turn helps the player in their early game.

Q: What happens to a vehicle if it's left unattended? A: Whenever vehicles or transportation companions are left unattended in the game world for a prolonged period of time, they will despawn along with all the items that are stored on them, and can be respawned at their respective building (Horses at stables, Airplanes at Airfield, etc.). All NFT items that the player had on the vehicle or transportation companion when it despawned can also be picked up at their respective buildings.
Q: What happens with the vehicles when they are not being used by the player? A: When the vehicles are not being used, they have to be parked in their respective buildings (Horses in stables, Airplanes in Airfields, etc.). These parking slots will be available for purchase or renting. Owning a parking slot serves two purposes, the place where your vehicle or transportation companion will respawn, and a way for the player to safely store their vehicles in order for them to not despawn. In case a parking spot wasn't rented, then a spawn penalty time will take effect the next time the items are spawned into the world.
Q: What happens if I rent a vehicle and it despawns? A: If your rented vehicle or transportation companion dies or despawns due to inaction, you will be able to restore it at their respective building. Regardless, your renting period continues to expire while that respawn occurs so be careful!
