Despite buildings being relatively easy to create, unlocking the ability to upgrade them is less straightforward. This guide aims to explain step-by-step on how to upgrade houses in Medieval Dynasty.
How to Upgrade Houses in Medieval Dynasty
Let’s start by noting, first of all, that building upgrades can only be done to houses and no other buildings. Also, the function of these house upgrades is to change the exterior of the houses. This will increase the happiness of the villagers that live in them, so they’re important for making your villagers happy.
With that out of the gate, let’s go more in-depth on how to upgrade houses.
First off, you’ll need to do obtain experience and points towards unlocking the production skill called “Handyman”. This is relatively straightforward: any crafting you do will increase your Production experience and give you skill points. So for now, you just have to craft any and all buildings you can. Once you have obtained enough points, simply unlock the Handyman skill, found in the Production tab, represented by an anvil, under Skills.
After you have obtained the Handyman skill, equip your hammer and right-click to bring up a menu with a multitude of options. The topmost center one of those options is Upgrade, so pick that. Any building that can be upgrade will now have a teal overlay over it and will show you the required materials when you approach any of its walls.
Upgrading itself is not too different from the act of building a house. You upgrade one wall at a time and the appearance of the wall noticeable changes when you finish upgrading it. The materials required to upgrade vary depending on if the house has stone walls or wattle walls, but the process is the same for both.
But there you have it, that’s the gist of the process. Now you just need to gather the materials to upgrade the houses, but it’s well worth doing so as this will greatly increase the insulation of each house, which will in turn increase the happiness of the villagers which reside in it.
Fully insulated houses are very resilient to external elements, such as the heat of summer and the cold of winter, which villagers definitely appreciate.

Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide
Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.
Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.
In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.
The Sandglass Location
To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.
Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.
From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.
The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge
Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.
First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.
From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.
When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.
From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.
At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.
After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.
Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
