Backyard Mechanics

From Wiki Panic Room

You have to complete ‘first floor puzzle’ to gain permanent access to backyard.


In the beginning for a small training chain (3 quests) you can get into the yard even if first floor puzzle is not complete. but after the end of that training chain, you have to complete first floor puzzle to gain permanent access to the backyard.


First thing to know is that interaction with backyard items goes in the sets of five clicks. you will need one kind of item for first four clicks (also available in store for copper coins) and you will need a different items for final click (available in store for gold coins). You can also find these items in the game, i will give the detail below.


Second thing to know is after each set of five clicks the object will disappear or become inactive for few minutes. hovering your mouse over the object will let you know after how many minutes it will be again available for interaction.


Third thing is if you are unable to complete a set of five clicks, for example you did 4 clicks but dont have item for final click then the object will reset again in 48 hours. that is you will be able to start your set of 5 clicks again after 48 hours. hovering your mouse over the object will let you know how much time is left.


Important Things to Remember


- the fifth/final click items will fall only in one of the three trap modes in the rooms (i.e. mirror room, against time and invisible ink)


- Inventory limit for each of the interacting item is 30


- Each backyard object levels up as you interact with them. After an object reaches level-5, it will need 2 interacting items for each click. if you hover your mouse over any backyard object, it will show level of that object in a small purple circle.

The Yard in Details

Yard.png


Backyard is a new permanent location. It becomes available after you choose a faction and complete the ‘first floor puzzle’.

First floor puzzle is located on the lower left side of your house plan as well as in your puzzles tab. You will get multiple notifications that an area of the yard is available to you long before you have completed the First Floor puzzle, this just means that when you do gain access to the yard you will have many areas to interact with. You can see yard location on the background of the house when you hover your mouse over the following light and map sign in your house plan.

Entering.png


In the yard there are multiple areas to interact with for quest items and other rewards.

Yard areas have to be interacted with 5 times in order to complete a full cycle. If you don’t complete a full cycle the counter will reset to zero in 48 hours.

You will need 4 of the first four click activators and one final click activator *until your level of that area goes up.*

Activators are found in rooms of the house. See list below on which rooms give each activator. Final click activators are only available in trap modes (against time, invisible ink, mirror).

If you don’t complete the full cycle the area will reset itself in 48 hours. You can hover your mouse over the area to see the timer.

After you have completed a full cycle the area will be dormant for 4-20 minutes (depending on your level in that area). In the Jim, Jenny and Jack areas the characters disappear until the area resets.

Final click gives the best rewards as well as unique rewards.


BACKYARD OBJECTS HAVE LEVELS:


All the backyard areas will start at Level 1 and the levels will rise as you keep clicking on them. The Levels are not limited.


from Level 1 to Level 4, you will need one interacting item/ activator for each click of that that area.

After level 5 you will need two interacting items/ activators of that area.


If you hover your mouse on any of the backyard area you will see a small circle on the top right side that will show the current level of that specific area. In the following figures the “Hollow” and “Strange shadow” is at level 1 while the “Fountain” is level at 5. Notice that in the Dountain picture there is a small number 2 under the yellow gloves picture showing that you will now need two gloves for each click.


4pics.png

In the Gates picture above the top right side has a number 4 in the circle. It shows the Gates area is level 4 right now. You will see half of the circle is filled with purple indicating it is halfway through level 4. As you keep clicking on the area the purple will fill the circle as the level gets higher until level 5 is reached.

The higher the level the more freedom points you will earn by clicking that area.

HOW TO INTERACT WITH OBJECTS IN THE BACKYARD:


Click the area you want to interact with.

Click the WORDS of the action you want to perform.

Tips For Playing the Inner Yard

Tip: use Iron Bell amulet (5000 bronze coins) while trying to get yard interacting items in the rooms and your chances will improve a lot. You can also use a


Tip: For yard quests, you do not have to wait till you have all the items (e.g. 4 sticks + 1 rake in the case of ladder). Start clicking if you have even 1 stick. Each interaction will count even if you don’t have all 5 items when you start: each hit will move quest bar a bit. For some quests you need to hit about 20-22 times. it doesnt matter if you are hitting with stick or rake. so just keep doing it as you find sticks in the rooms. when you hit with first stick the 48 hours timer will start. dont worry about timer even if you didnt able to hit 5 times with in 48 hours it doesnt matter at all. you will complete quest even if you didnt have a single rake and keep hitting with sticks every 48 hours.


Tip: keep looking at the quest bar after each hit. if its filling slowly it means you have to hit several times. usually the bar must be filled before you get the item. if you want to get the item before the bar is filled i.e. earlier than the set number of hits, you can try using fern amulet, fern garland amulet, decorative chain decor (cost gold each). it will increase your chance to get the item early but remember its the chance that is improve to get it early there is no surety that you will get it from first hit or fifteenth hit say.


Tip: if the quest is ‘opening the gate’ you will have to interact with the gate 5 times (4 cutter + 1 hammer) within 48 hours. if for example you have interacted with gate 3 times with cutter and then waited to get remaining items (1 cutter + 1 hammer) and 48 hours lapsed since first click, the timer will reset and you will have to once again use all 4 cutters plus 1 hammer.


Tip: you have to interact with a yard object (say ladder) five times within 48 hours of first click to get maximum reward. fifth click is final click. remember all objects of the yard will not disappear after five clicks but a timer will start appearing if you hover your mouse over the object after five clicks which shows you that the object will be available again for clicking in few minutes. However, if you are unable to click 5 times in a row within 48 hours of first click your object will reset after 48 hours and you again have to start from first click. Remember this thing has nothing to do with your quests, each hit counts in the quest. do look at the quest bar, it will keep moving as you are hitting the object even if the object reset. Also if you dont want to spend gold you can find all click items in the rooms of the house. use iron bell while searching and your chances will improve a lot. remember final click items in the rooms drop only in trap modes (i.e. against time, mirror room, invisible ink) first 4 click items will drop in all other modes. please keep in mind there are lots and lots of quests in the second season that require interacting with yard objects again and again and again some times around 22 times to find a single item.


How to Use Adrenaline with No Side Effects.

(by Linda Barnett)

Oh the little things that make us smile... I had 8 hours of 3X faster life/energy refill.

I had 3 Adrenalin (yard)( Life recovery rate is 3 times faster for 2 hours and 1.5 times slower for 24 hours).

I ran the adrenalin for 2 hours, replaced it with adrenalin ran it for 2 hours, replaced with adrenalin ran it for 2 hours, then used a Healing Balsam (collection #9)(Life recovery rate 3 times faster for 2 hours) to cancel out the 24 hours 1.5 times slower. Woo hoo I was on a roll...


Im explaining here clicking process for gates. It is same for any other yard object:


STEP- 1

Hover the mouse over the Gates. the gates started to glow (you can see yellowish glow) and a window appear on the right side.

Gates.png

Gates: the top left side of the window says “Gates”. It is the name of the yard object you are going to click.


Number 4 in Circle:

The top right side has a number 4 in the circle. It shows the level of the yard object (gates in this case). my gates is level 4 right now. each yard object starts with level 1 and as you keep clicking it, it levels up. if you look a bit carefully you will see a small purplish fill in the circle below the number 4. when the circle is full of this purplish color your object will level up. Higher The Level, the more Freedom Points you get by clicking the object.


0/5: you can see number 0/5 below word Gates. this shows that you have clicked Gates zero times right now and you can click it maximum five times to complete one cycle. Fifth click is final click of a cycle.


Cutting Plier: below it you can see a smallish picture of Cutting Plier. this picture is showing the item you need right now to click on the gates i.e. you need to have cutting plier to click on the gate.


Next is the statement Final Click Gives the Maximum Reward! : it means that if you click gates five times within 48 hours you will get maximum reward from clicking it. if 48 hours lapsed you will have to start again from first click.

Remember it has nothing to do with the quest you are doing. for quests every hit counts be it first or fifth, be it within 48 hours or after 48 hours. keep looking at the quest bar of the quest you are doing, each hit will move the bar a bit.


STEP-2

Now Click Gates for the First Time: when you click it you will see something like the following picture.

Break the gates.png

The top Green Circle: is showing the picture of item (i.e. cutting plier in this case) that you need for first click.

12/1: means that i have 12 cutting pliers right now in my inventory and i need only one for this click. If i have zero cutting plier in my inventory the top circle will be red instead of green and the number will be 0/1


Break The Gates: now the action you are going to perform by your first click is trying to break the gates. Click this Wording to complete your first Click.


On the lower side its showing the rewards: I will get 22 freedom points if i click the gates. Remember my gates are level 4. the higher the level the more freedom points you get. you will get less than 22 freedom points if your gates is level 1, 2 or 3. In addition to freedom points there is also a chance that i get items showing in the lower circles. you can click on left and right arrows to see complete list of items you could get.


STEP-3

First Click: Click on the wording “Break the Gates” in the above picture. after clicking you will see something like following picture. On the top its telling you what rewards you get from first click and on the lower side you can see the images of rewards you get.

Receive.png

STEP-4

Now Hover your mouse over the Gates again. you will see something like the following picture.

Gates2.png

Just for a moment compare this picture with the picture in STEP-1 above.


First Difference: Instead of 0/5 now its showing 1/5 it means you have clicked the Gates one time right now and you can click it maximum five times to complete one cycle. Fifth click is final click of a cycle. you can also see small purplish bar started filling up in the background of 1/5. This bar will be full when you have clicked the gate five times i.e. you have completed one cycle.


Second Difference: second difference between this picture and the picture i have posted above in STEP-1 is the last two lines of the wording saying “Click sequence will reset in 47:50:11” this is showing that you have 48 hours to click Gates five times and complete one cycle to get maximum reward. If you are unable to complete cycle, the object Gates will reset and you will have to start clicking again from first click. Remember it has nothing to do with the quest you are doing. for quests every hit counts be it first or fifth, be it within 48 hours or after 48 hours. keep looking at the quest bar of the quest you are doing, each hit will move the bar a bit.


STEP-5

Now Click Gates for the Second Time: when you click it you will see something like the following picture.


Gates3.png

Compare this picture with the picture of STEP-2 above.

The only difference is that top green circle is now showing 11/1 instead of 12/1. This means initially you were having 12 cutting pliers in our inventory, you have used one for first click and now you are left with 11 cutting pliers in our inventory and again you will need one for this click.


STEP-6


Second Click: Click on the wording “Break the Gates” second time. after clicking you will see something like following picture. On the top its telling you what rewards you get from second click and on the lower side you can see the images of rewards you get.


Reward.png

STEP-7

Now Hover your mouse over the Gates again. you will see following picture.

7.png

Again notice the number 2/5 means you have completed two clicks out of five clicks to complete one cycle. notice the purplish bar in the background has moved ahead.

Also notice that the timer is running now you have 47:24:34 hours to finish one cycle of five clicks to get maximum reward.


Remember it has nothing to do with the quest you are doing. for quests every hit counts be it first or fifth, be it within 48 hours or after 48 hours. keep looking at the quest bar of the quest you are doing, each hit will move the bar a bit.


STEP-8

Now Click Gates for the Third Time: when you click it you will see something like the following picture.

Step 8.png

10/1 showing now i have 10 cutting pliers in my inventory and again i need one for this click.


STEP-9

Third Click: Click on the wording “Break the Gates” third time. after clicking you will see something like following picture. On the top its telling you what rewards you get from third click and on the lower side you can see the images of rewards you get.

Step 9.png

STEP-10

Now Hover your mouse over the Gates again. you will see following picture.

Step 10.png

Again notice the number 3/5 means you have completed three clicks out of five clicks to complete one cycle. notice the purplish bar in the background has moved ahead. Also notice that the timer is running now you have 47:12:27 hours to finish one cycle of five clicks to get maximum reward.


Remember it has nothing to do with the quest you are doing. for quests every hit counts be it first or fifth, be it within 48 hours or after 48 hours. keep looking at the quest bar of the quest you are doing, each hit will move the bar a bit.


STEP-11

Now Click Gates for the Fourth Time: when you click it you will see something like the following picture.

Step 11.png

9/1 showing now i have 9 cutting pliers in my inventory and again i need one for this click.


STEP-12

Fourth Click: Click on the wording “Break the Gates” fourth time. after clicking you will see something like following picture. On the top its telling you what rewards you get from fourth click and on the lower side you can see the images of rewards you get.


Step 12.png

STEP-13

Now Hover your mouse over the Gates again. you will see following picture.

Step 13.png

Now notice 4/5. here you are done with four clicks and now only one the final/fifth click is left to complete the cycle and get maximum reward.


Notice the picture of clicking item has changed from Cutting Plier to Sledge Hammer .


STEP-14

Now Click Gates for the Final Fifth Time: when you click it you will see something like the following picture.

Step 14.png

Have a look at top green circle, its showing Sledge Hammer instead of Cutting Plier. Sledge hammer is required for final fifth click to complete one cycle of clicking and get maximum reward. Remember for each object in the yard you will always need a different item for final/fifth click.

3/1 showing i have 3 sledge hammers in my inventory and i need one for final click.


If you move the right red arrow you will see one unique reward that you can get only by final click. Its Chain for Gates. its only available in the fifth/final click.

Step 14 2.png


STEP-15

Fifth/ Final Click: Click on the wording “Break the Gates” fifth time. after clicking you will see something like following picture.

Notice that i got maximum reward by final click and i also got lucky and got the special reward Chain.

Step 15.png


STEP-16

Now Hover your mouse over the Gates again. you will see following picture.

Step 16.png


There are few things to notice here.

First, 5/5 this number is showing you have completed one cycle of five clicks. notice that the purple bar in the background is full now. showing your cycle is complete.


Second, notice the last two lines of the wording saying Area Will be Available in: 00:00:51 this means that you can start clicking again to complete another cycle of five clicks in 51 seconds. Remember, this time will be different for different yard objects e.g. it will take 6 minutes for fountain to be available again after one complete cycle.


Third, notice number 4 in the smallish circle. Now half of this circle is Purple. I am half way to level up my Gates to level 5.


STEP-17

Now Hover your mouse again over gates after one minute. and you will see exactly the same picture as you have seen in the STEP-1 above. Now you are ready to start the cycle again.

Step 17.png

Explanation by Lisa Edwina Andrews:

“I have used these alot and found this is what happens. i use 1 cherry- it lasts for 24 hours and I can BUY meals to make my limit go from regular 500 to 510 5-times within that 24 hours. If you have lots of energy items stored in your inventory or you have the monies to spend for energy this is a great tool.”
