Okay, but now let’s start with he guide and tips for hatching insects in the Insect Habitat…
Yes, it’s really annoying and doesn’t seem like giving much benefit, but always upgrade your Termite Farms as much as possible, they will lower your father costs by a lot in the long run and save you so much resources and time. The sooner you do that, the more profit you will get in the long run!
So, I know that many players like to gamble when upgrading insect start to save up on upgrade costs, but this is a HUGE mistake in the long run and you can only lose at it.
So, if you use the same level insect to upgrade, your chances are 100% success. But if you use a insect with one level lower, you will have 45% success rate. This seems like ‘alright I can do it twice and 90% is nice and maybe I will win some’. This is where many players cut themself short! If you do NOT success, the insect your trying to upgrade will also lose a star so this simply try that is not even a 50:50 will throw you back so much so you need the next upgrade to get back at where you were.
Instead, just upgrade the insect to always get the 100% success rate. This might feel like progressing slower, but I can promise and even prove to you that it will be better!
How to get Golden Insects
Alright, I think we can all agree that golden rarity insects are awesome and everyone wants them – but not only hatching them at a very small percentage chance is painful, also leveling them up even more.
So, here’s the best thing to do it…
First, you will try to hatch with the small percentage chance and most of the time you will get purple or blue rarity insecpts out of it.
But now you can use those hatched insects that you don’t need to butcher them for Insect Shells. This option is a little hidden, so go to the insect info and the story tab where you will find a small icon in the bottom left corner:
Now you can get the Insect Shels out of it:
These Insect Shells can then later be redeemed for directly orange/gold rarity insects in the Insect Habtiat so it’s not that much of a pain if you will hatch ‘useless’ insects as you can butcher them for the ones you want:
