About Phillip (totalthinker)

Phillip toyed originally toyed with We Rule to write a review for his blog iPad Envy. He didn’t reach level 16 until July and then he and his wife Carol caught the fever.

In one month he jumped to Level 35 with a Ruby Citadel and more than two million experience points. He reached Level 40 before there even was one and is currently ranked in the top five hundred players.

Carol (aka JennyManytoes) has two kingdoms at Level 40. Her shops are more popular than Phillip’s which irks him to no end.

Jenny Manytoes is our polydactal Siamese cat. She has 27 toes between her four paws, which is awesome to look at. Her face is the icon for Carol’s shops, which must make them more irresistible than the icon of Bob Dobbs on Phillip’s shops.

    On Sunday May 1, I recieved a message in we rule to come and play tomorrow afternoon (PST) to recieve something, I don’t quite remember what it said exactly. So I did. I didn’t get anything or even another message. I was wondering if anyone esle got this message and whether they were lied to or not. Any ideas?

    Also, it aggravated me to no end when ngmoco:) reduced magic cauliflower to 1600c profit. Magic farms were a decent addition but I’m not fond of paying ten mojo for each.

    Thank you for the time and effort you put into this blog. I always read your reviews before I invest in a property. I don’t know how I caught the fever, put I did and I play everyday.

    I have a question and you may or may not know the answer; how come some of the Chinese monastery’s give 5100 xp points and a few others give 6100xp points?

    Also, there seems to be another Japanese building, something to do with black belts thar gives about 3900xp points. I can’t find that building in the menu.

    Have you also noticed that some of the dragon buildings are different colors?

    Thank you for your time,

    Thank you for all of your work – I too read all of your analysis before I purchase and design my main relm! For what ever reason, I have never seen the Amber Fort in my game – not at level 39 for mojo OR level 57 for coins – which I am currently. The only thing I’m seeing from the India theme is the Indian Temple and the Indian shrine which only comes through the gift cart. My understanding was to get the Amber Fort you just had to hit a certain level and it would become available for purchase. Have I missed out on the India theme altogether?

      Sadly they eliminate travel items almost as quickly as they add them. You may still find an amber fort as a gift, but I wouldn’t count on it.

    Does anyone have an idea on how many goals there are? I think I’ve completed them all since none have shown up for a week…I’ve gone thru the goal chart and hav done all the ones it has said to trigger the next goal. Thanks

    Hi Philip

    I just added you as my We Rule friend. Please send me flutterfly as much as you can. Thanks in advance.

    In last Dragon event, even I tried my best to catch dragon and used 10 mojo, I still needed 1 more dragon to catch for obtaining my first dragon lair. Poor me~~@@

    Pls help me.

    Your blog is really helpful – thank you.

    I was just redesigning my We Rule kingdom on the iPad and I thought I saw a message to log in for my free mojo, as my citizens love me.

    Mojo was at 0 so I got out of We Rule and back in. No message & mojo still at 0. Maybe I misread it.

    It’s midday Saturday here so I’ll keep trying.

    Hello Totalthinker. Thanks for the great site and all the time and effort you have spent creating it. (plus all the mojo I am sure you have spent!) I am sending you a little message to tell you about a gem of an app that saves a lot of data when playing werule on a 3g connection. The app is called onavo and its free in the app store. It acts like a proxy and compresses data to stop your data allowance from being ate up. I have a 500mg allowance per month which i consistently went over due to being addicted to this game! Not only do i no longer exceed my data but I’ve found that this app significantly speeds up we rule when on 3g and I thought you would like to know about it and possibly get it added to your site if you like it as it does aid this game. Hope you are all good and have a lovely holiday. LordOnion

        Maybe your cat typed this, you were tripping, or this is secret spy code about to unleash nuclear war, but I watch too many episodes of The Guild to refuse to accept this onto the board.

    I’ve just started playing We Rule, about 2 months. I have to admit that it’s become very addictive but I’m very confused as to what the goal is that I’m aiming for.

    There doesnt seem to be any instructions on the game.
    I’ve bought shops, houses etc. I’ve opened the 4 realms around my main 1 and designed these differently but I can’t work out how to get friendly orders to complete goals, I don’t know how to get Mojo without paying real money, I can’t afford to do this.
    Am I wasting my time if I don’t buy Mojo?

    Any help would be appreciated.

      No, you are not wasting your time, but it will take longer to develop your kingdom. Some players have gone far without using mojo, so don’t despair. However, there are also ways to minimize mojo purchases. Do a search for mojo on this site, or, for the most current info, check the book when it comes out this spring.

      Hi Paul,
      Welcome to WR and this is the best place for all the information on the game..You are awarded Mojo as you level up. You shouldnt have to use mojo much unless you have to have all the shops. Sometime (later than sooner) you should receive all the shops you need to complete the goals thru Ngmoco gift cart. All my kingdoms have.The only item I havent seen is the red naval ship. To get people to fill your orders from the goal list you need to place an order. Most people will fill them as they mature(?). Some items take a long time.. Be patient.. Have fun!!!

    hi phillip, are u rich or something?


    • Totalthinker
      Mar 22, 2012 @ 05:20:15

      Given that we have family and cats who love us and that we do what we love, we are exceptionally rich. Financially we just pay our bills. So I guess that makes us richer than most lately. Do I have a lot of coins to throw around in We Rule? Yes, but I’ve been playing for two years.

    I love this site and keep referring to it. It has made playing the game even more addictive. Your kingdom is a treat for the eyes! I started playing around the end of January this year.

    First of all I want to say thanks because you have helped me turn my game around. I am level 56 and was still buying groves, till I read here about statues. 🙂 I was wondering if you have covered the infinite stack? Thanks for helping!!

    Add me, My ingame name is : Johni

    So I was looking through old posts and noticed back in March you were talking about ngmoco hopefully bringing back the exp leaderboard. In the meantime, we’ve actually created our own exp leaderboard over at the Mojo Farm forum and have been keeping the friendly competition going strong. Feel free to participate!


    Also about the ‘infinite stack’ Rachel mentioned, here’s a thread describing how it works:


    Anyway, thanks for the great posts on this blog! You’re right that things have seemed a bit boring around We Rule as of late, but rumor has it we’ll be getting new levels within the next couple weeks, so we can look forward to that! (hopefully the new realms will come with)

    Help, can someone please send me, Heathchild, an ogre! Also I would like to know whether anyone else has lost their tombs and graves. My war dead cemetery is left EMPTY.


    • Totalthinker
      Jun 03, 2012 @ 20:13:01

      No, you have not been the only victim. As you can see from the comments tombs and ponds seem to be disappearing everywhere. I wanted to check and see if I could place my items from inventory but I have been unable to connect since yesterday. So they may be experiencing server problems, or they simply can no longer process all of the back inventory.

    Ogres, assemble now in Heathchild’s kingdom where a treat awaits you!

    Thanks for such an amazing and detailed grimoire! I’m at level 62 and will level up soon. I have two Bellver castles and they consistently have orders on them. I seemed to have completed all of the obvious goals and I can’t figure out how to trigger the goal that requires a friendly order on a Bellver castle. Do you happen to know what the trigger is?

    Now We City is to be discontinued it has concentrated my mind on how much I have invested in this game. It doesn’t bear thinking about that it can all vanish so easily.


    • Totalthinker
      Jun 20, 2012 @ 16:37:30

      it’s such a shame. It also makes it likely that players will stop supporting new social network games for that very reason.

      It would be wise for ngmoco to credit players with free mojo to We Rule.

    I do know I am not the only one! Especially as a big fan of this site and all the work that has gone into it, that has helped make this such an interesting game.

    Philip, I second that.
