In today’s article we are going to walk you through all the caretakers in the game and help you pick the best ones to protect your artifacts as well as tell you which ones are the best according to the bonuses they give.

By now you should already know the basics tips as well as the time lapse cheat of the game, else take a look at our game guide to learn them! So, without further ado, let’s get started with the very basics about the caretakers!

Art Inc. – What are caretakers?

The caretakers are some characters that you can recruit (or summon, however you want to call it) and they can give boosts to the art that they are assigned to or simply give other types of boosts (for exploration, increased defense, chance to explore X location etc).

They can be anything between 1 star and 6 stars, and the higher their grade, the better their skills. 

Art Inc. – How to get caretakers?

You can obtain caretakers in two main ways, with more if you count the Silver Fox Challenge, the Facebook invites and the Starter Pack. The two main ways are in the Collection tab in the bottom side of the screen and then head on to Recruitment:

– The first option is free and you can do it every 3 hours, and from this you can obtain any caretaker between 1 and 4 stars.

– The second option is paid. This will cost 75 Gems per each recruitment (or summon) and you will receive any caretaker between 4 stars and 6 stars. 

Of course the second option is much better, but it is also considerably more expensive. However, if you have collected enough Gems you won’t have issues using this. Also, if you used our time lapse cheat, it will be pretty easy to get them.

The other ways to obtain caretakers are via Facebook invites (when you invite at least 20 friends to play the game, you will get Athena, a 5 star caretaker), by completing the Silver Fox’s Challenge (3 separate challenges, each of them asking you to collect 3 works of art – from this you obtain Silver Fox, a 5 star caretaker) and through the paid offers. 

The Starter Pack will give you Karen Santiago, a 5 star caretaker, but if you are a free to play player, then this might not be that good for you. It’s OK though, because you can still get her with Gems through Recruitment. 

Art Inc. – Who are the best Caretakers?
