How to use lingots

Every time I want to use lingots. I can't find a way to do it. What am I missing?

October 8, 2013



Go to "Home" (icon in upper left), then it brings up you tree. Click on the "Store" tab at the far right and go shopping. There's not a lot of options for use right now, but that will probably change over time as more good suggestions are submitted.


So I lost a heart mid-session, and left the session to use a lingot to buy back a heart.... but when I returned to the session, it started back again, and I was down 4 lingots -- is that how it's supposed to work?


You can't stop and buy extra hearts during a lesson. I have bought extra hearts before I started a lesson. I have been even able to use them on another lesson the next day. Maybe you can buy them and they are there until you use them. That would be reasonable. But it seems they usually disappear if you don't use them immediately. Make sure to apply the extra hearts before you crash though. I have 170 ligots and don't use them much; they are too hard to use.
