My Time at Portia Gameplay
As we already mentioned you play a role of a newly-arrived workshop owner. You play from the first person and have to gather resources to craft different thing that you will sell or give for a quest. Also, you will need to upgrade your workshop, which is also your home. Besides, gathering and crafting you will also fight with different creatures and live an interesting social life.
While you play you get experience and skill points. The skill point tree has three branches. The first one will help you be more effective in battles. The second one will help you become a proficient gatherer. And the third one will give some strong social skills.
Besides that Portia is an open world town with several dungeons of two types. One of them where you gather minerals, the other one where you fight with dangerous creatures for loot and more experience. Though you may think at first that some of the creatures are too easy and there is no need in putting skill points into the battle branch, we recommend you to reconsider that. As though the main quest line will open new activities and monsters. And in some dungeons, you will meet strong bosses.
Also, a great thing is a map. There you will see all active zones and open quests. Some of the quests are limited with time if you want to get them you need to hurry up, so you should check your map every morning not to miss something special.
Besides, you’d rather check your calendar as well to see the upcoming events in Portia.
My Time at Portia Crafting
The crafting system in the game is very interesting and creative. Here you will have simple recipes and hard ones, which require particular crafting materials or knowledge. Interesting thing is that you will get those not only through different gathering zone but also by a researching system.
