The Heathen Builder is the ninth puzzle in Virtual Villagers 5: New Believers.



  • The Heathen Master Builder is located at the southern edge of the village, near the Blocking Totem.
  • To convert the Heathen Builder, you must challenge them to a build-off competition.
  • The Heathen Builder is relatively fast so you'll need the Time Warp God Power (500 energy) to beat them.
  • A common mistake users make is casting the spell before dropping the villager on the construction site.
  • You want to cast the spell after you drop the villager on the construction site.
  • Doing it before makes the villager do something else.
  • Once you have won the challenge, the Heathen Master Builder will be converted.
  • Once they are converted, they'll leave a piece of necklace behind.
  • Send one of your spare villagers to collect it.
