The general idea of the game is to advance your troops and heros to become strong and rule the world of Maegica, this can be done through Player Vs Player battles (PvP), Through Non-Player Character Battles (NPC) or through multiplayer Arena battles (MPA).
You will need to gain Celest, which is purchased just like gold in caesary or Sest in Evony. Celest is used for Instant completion of buildings, technologies, Enhancements etc. As well as Bonus hero training, Stat blessings etc. and many other things.
Prestige allows you to advance your rank which allows you to control more heroes aswell as raising your gold salary.
Honor is mainly used for the upgrading of your Technologies. It can also be used to trade for prestige.

Finally bottom right you will see a circle with an image of the current Season and 5 smaller circles, which are your view buutons, around the outside. City is your Town view as in the image above. Battle Ground takes you to where the Battle Ground and arenas are located. World takes you to the Map view. Local takes you to the District view I.E. your immediate area, your goldmines are accessed from here aswell. Lastly Farm, which takes you to the farms in your immediate area where you can harvest grain.
This is where you should start. Follow the quests, they will help you to learn quickly as well as keeping your gold levels up. Quests need to be accepted before you can complete them. When your level is high enough, you will gain daily quests. You are allowed to complete 6 daily quests per day. These daily quests will give a trinket for every one successfully completed. Daily quests have level and the higher level quest you complete, the better the trinket it drops. Quests with 10 stars drop godly trinkets etc. You can use the refresh button to try and gain a higher quest in exchange for 10 Celest. Like most things in Maegica, there is a cooldown period, you can however perform instant complete for 10 celest. You are also awarded honor for each successful quest completed, this can be a good source of honour for newer players as 10 star quests give 2200 honor each.
One of the main places to stock up on your Gold supplies. You are allowed 12 tax collections per day, with an extra 3 in summertime. You may also be awarded extra collections from the Government decision making. Your primary source of tax is from your cottages, the higher the level the more you receive. The magistrate building also increases your base rate of tax. As your alliance level grows, new alliance techs will be unlocked, some of these also increase he amount of gold you will get from taxes.
Gold can be obtained in a number of ways. Taxes as we see from the previous paragraph is one way. Your daily salary will give you gold as well, the higher your rank the better salary you get. Goverment decisions give gold depending on the answer you choose. The biggest gold gains are normally from selling unwanted items you have collected, this can give you a huge gold boost, just make sure you don't sell items you need.
Celest is the currency you will recieve for any game payment you make. It is used for a number of things. You can finish cooldowns instantly, add extra protection periods, Expand your Tavern, Buy extra Building teams, Buy extra storage space, Attack NPC's without waiting for reset, buy extra battle orders. You can also gain Celest in small amounts from tax collections, the Alchemist building will increase your chances of this.
