    Adopt


    To start things off, lets get you your first Goatling! Head to the Adoption Center by clicking "Adopt" in the left navigation menu. You will see three options; Rehome, Adopt, and Surrender.

    Lets focus on the "Adopt" option for now. Click "Adopt" to create a new Goatling! (You can go back later to "Rehome" Goatlings other members have surrendered for Sugar Stars.) Choose a name and gender for your new Goatling and click "Adopt Goatling". You can change your Goatling's name (for 1,000 Sugar Stars) and gender (for free) later on too.

    "Hi! Nice to meet you!"

    Congratulations you now have your first Goatling! Members can adopt up to 10 Goatlings for free. If they have a Crown Account (Diamond Dust item) they can adopt an additional 10. Members can adopt even more Goatlings with Adoption Tickets (Diamond Dust item).

    Appearance Dolls


    You can use special dolls called Appearance Dolls to change your Goatling's look. The doll's appearance will transfer to your goat when used. After use, the magic is depleted and so the doll disappears. If you use another doll on the same Goatling it will replace the previous appearance.

    Lets update your Goatling's look now! Head to your inventory by clicking "My Stuff" then "My Items". You will find a pack of items to get you started! It may seem a little overwhelming rite now but we will explain everything in this guide so you will be an expert in no time!

    Click the Appearance Doll named "New Bee AD", choose "Change Pet Appearance" in the drop down menu, and click "Use". Choose a Goatling from the drop down menu, click "Select Goatling". Click "ok" on the confirmation popup, and your pet will be transformed!

    "I feel so BEEautiful!"

    There are over 100 Appearance Dolls to choose from and more are added each month! Click Here to see a full list of Appearance Dolls and how they will change your Goatling's look. Members can get Appearance Dolls in many ways like through shops, events, contests, random events, battles, gifts, and crafting.

    HA Buddies

    Next, lets set up your HA buddy! HA Buddies are dress up Avatars displayed on Profiles and Forums. You can choose your own hair, face, clothes, hats, backgrounds, accessories, and bases! Layer items in different ways to create very unique looks.


    HA Buddys cannot be deleted so if you choose not to have one, or would like to create one later, you can skip this step. To create a HA Buddy, click "My Stuff" then "My HA Buddy". Read the introduction, choose a base, then click "Create HA Buddy". You will be redirected to your HA Buddy Closet. This is where you store your HA Bud items, dress up, and save your outfit! HA Buddy items are not restricted by gender. At first your closet will be empty, but we will fix that rite away!

    Go back your inventory by clicking "My Stuff" then "My Items". You already have 8 HA Buddy items!



    Honeycomb BG

    Honeycomb Face

    Bee Wings

    Bee Shirt



    Bee Hair

    Bee Hair 2

    Bee Friends

    Bee Head Bopper


    Click on the "Honeycomb BG", choose "Move To Closet" from the drop down menu, then click "Use". The "Honeycomb BG" is now being stored in your closet! Now click "My Items" to go back to your inventory and move the rest of your HA buddy items into your closet! Honey Face, Bee Wings, Bee Shirt, Bee Hair, Bee Hair 2, Bee Friends, and Bee Head Bopper.

    Go to your closet by clicking "My Stuff" then "My HA Buddy". HA buddy items are divided into 7 categories. Hair, faces, hats, body, bases, accessories, and backgrounds. Click through the categories to see what you have stored. Click a item to wear, and click the item again to take off. Click "Take Out" to remove the item from your closet - it will go back to your regular inventory.

    Go ahead and dress your avatar, when you are done click "Save". It is important to refresh the page after saving, or press Ctrl+F5. If you don't refresh the page your changes might not update for you rite away. Your HA buddy will now appear above the left navigation menu and you can click on it as an alternative way to get back to your closet.

    Alright! Now you're looking good with your Goatling by your side. You have learned the basics but there are still LOTS of fun things to see and do! Keep reading to learn more!

    Battle


    Friendly baddy battles are a big part of some Goatling's day. Would you like to give it a try? Lets prepare your Goatling for a easy Training Battle! Go to your inventory ("My Stuff", then "My Items"). Click the "Bumble Blade", choose "Equip" from the drop down menu and click "Use", make sure the rite Goatling is selected, and click "Equip To Goatling". Each Goatling can equip up to 5 attack or defense items.

    Now head to the Training Center by clicking "Battle" in the left navigation menu then click "Training Center" at the top of the page. The first training challenger is called the Apostrophe Training Baddy. Click the "Start Battle" button to the right of that baddy.

    Your Goatling can attack with a weapon or Pet Move. Weapons are stronger so it is recommend to mainly use those. However, weapons have limited uses and will disappear once used up. For example, the Bumble Blade can be used 10 times. Click the blade to attack until the battle is over. When the baddy or your Goatling is out of health points the battle will end.


    At the end of each battle a notice will appear at the top of the page that says: +THE BATTLE IS OVER! CLICK HERE TO FINALIZE AND CLAIM REWARDS!+ It is very important to click this so the battle finalizes and your Goatling receives experience points and loot. Loot is added to your inventory. When your Goatling receives enouph experience points it will level up and become stronger. If you click away from this page without clicking the finalizing link you can get back by clicking "Battle" in the left menu, then "My Battle" at the top of the page.

    Training Center Baddys only reward your Goatling experience points. However, Battle Center baddys give experience, Sugar Stars, and limited edition loot! Visit the Battle Center by clicking "Battle" in the left navigation menu then click "Battle Center" at the top of the page. Make sure the read the information at the top of the Battle Center page. These baddys grow stronger each time they are beat so they become more and more of a challenge over time.


    Play and feed your Goatling! Every time your Goatling battles they lost a hunger and mood point. You can replenish these by giving your Goatling toys and food. Go to your inventory (My Stuff then My Items) and click the "Goat Bee Plush". The amount of mood points this particular toy gives can be seen in the description. Choose "Play With Pet" from the drop down menu and click "use". Choose a pet from the down menu and then click "Play With Pet". Use the "Jar Of Honey" the same way but choose "Feed To Pet" from the drop down menu.
    Since your pet was in a battle, chances are it lost some or all of its health points. Use the "Vitamin Bee" health potion on your Goatling to recover! Toys, food, and Health potions, will disappear after being used.

    Explore Areas

    The Explore Area is another place where your Goatlings can find loot and battles! Your Goatling can also battle other Goatlings here for a chance to win Appearance Dolls! To visit the Explore Area click "Explore" on the left menu.

    Currently there are only 4 Areas to explore. Each area has 5 maps with different baddys, Goatlings, and loot. More areas will be added over time. The fee to visit to each area is 1,000 Sugar Stars. Each area can be explored 10 times per visit. To start, simply click any map thumbnail. You can then click anywhere on the enlarged map 10 times to find an event. Events can be a battle challenge, discovering loot, or nothing. Explore baddys are similar to Battle Center Baddys but they are not limited time.

    It's important to remember the difference between battle opponents so lets recap.
  • Training Center Baddys: Don't get stronger. Permanent but have level requirements. Give experience.
  • Battle Center Baddys: Get stronger after a defeat. Limited time only. Give experience. Drop limited edition loot.

If you have any questions or need to report something you can send in a Support Ticket. Support Tickets act a lot like a private forum for you and Goatlings Staff. Some Tickets will take longer to answer depending on how much research or investigation is required. If you feel like your ticket is taking to long to be answered you can "bump" the ticket by replying to it or by simply typing "bump".
