Nonograms Katana Wiki
Advertisement

In Nonograms Katana, you gain experience every time you solve a puzzle, complete a quest or expedition, upgrade a building or throw items into the Cauldron. As you gain experience, you will reach new levels. When you reach a new level, you are rewarded with items and unlock buildings, classes, skills or ship expedition types.

Levelling up character - level 26.

Experience

You can level up your character by collecting experience points. Experience points can be acquired by:

  • Solving nonograms.
  • Upgrading buildings.
  • Completing ship expeditions (Patrolling).
  • Completing quests (except Puzzle of the Day).
  • Completing expeditions.
  • Throwing items into the Cauldron.
  • Supplying 3 x Firework to the Alchemist's Hut lvl. 6 (requires the completion of Festival quest).
  • Items received over the warehouse limit are converted to experience points (for more information see Sandbox page).


Example rewards for solving nonograms. Visible experience boost coming from skills, artifacts and consumables.

You can increase the amount of experience points received from solving puzzles by learning Monk (class), Scientist (class), Zen Master (class), Intellectual (skill), acquiring Dancing Shiva (artifact), crafting Guild codex (craftifact) or by using items, i.e. Sushi, Date cake or Cup of coffee.

By acquiring Porcelain vase (artifact) you can also increase the amount of experience points received, but only from Cauldron.

When rewarded items exceed their corresponding warehouse capacity, they are immediately converted to experience points. Most excess items are worth 2 experience points; Katana and Bomb are worth 5; some others probably more.

The exact formula for how experience is calculated might never be known, but here are some known variables which affect experience gained from a solved nonogram:

  • Experience is based on a nonogram size.
  • Easier nonograms grant less experience (trivial lines, symmetry).
  • Using hints reduces experience.

And some that don't:

  • Using Items like Mortars, Arrows etc.
  • X marks or other marks.
  • Solving time.
  • Amount of turns to solve the nonogram.
  • UI settings / UI helpers (see Settings > Assist) don't affect experience, except "auto fill trivial lines".

Patterns

Experience required for the next level:
Current_Level_Experience + Current_Level * 1,000 = Next_Level_Experience

Example for Current_Level_Experience = 3,000,
Current_Level = 3:
3,000 + 3 * 1,000 = 6,000

Coins rewarded are calculated by multiplying the level you reached by 2 and cap at 200 Coins (level 100).

Rubies rewarded:

  • Every level that ends with a 0 (10, 20, 30, etc.) you receive 3 Rubies.
  • Every level that ends with a 5 (5, 15, 25, etc.) you receive 2 Rubies.
  • In other cases you receive 1 Ruby.

Items rewarded are always in the same order and the same amount:

  • Arrows.png x 5
  • Fan.png x 5
  • Shuriken.png x 5
  • Katana.png x 5
  • Spikes.png x 5
  • Boomerang.png x 5
  • Petard.png x 5
  • Bomb.png x 5
  • Steel.png x 5 and Charcoal.png x 5
  • Iron sand.png x 5 and Chemicals.png x 5
  • Sushi.png x 2
  • Mortar.png x 1


Battering ram:
You first start receiving Battering rams at lvl. 14 (you get 1). After that you always get 1.

Treasure map fragments (lvl. 1):
You first start receiving Treasure map fragments at level 5 (you get 5 of them). After that you always get 3.

Additional rewards
Additional rewards are rewarded when the player reaches levels 30, 50, 80 and 100. There are also additional rewards for levels 150, 200, 250, etc., which are the same as for level 100.

Note: Skills have "lvl." written beside them, classes don't.
