Anchors, sometimes known as bonds, nails or hinges, link physical items to the stage and to other items. Anchor linked items spawn with the map, or can be attached to items by the shaman to assist in building.
There are five different types of anchors available for use. Newer shamans usually have a tough time with anchors. The only way to create anchors is through the C, V, B, J or N keys. Pressing a key multiple times will move the anchor from the center to either side of the object, except in the case of the red anchor, which may only be attached by the middle. In the case of balloons, pressing any anchor hotkey will allow the shaman to connect the balloon to another object with a string.

 Anchor over anchor
To add a anchor onto overlapping things, like the ends of anvils, select the arrow shaman item and the anchor of your choosing. Once you place the arrow where you would like the anchor, the arrow will disappear and leave the anchor behind.
Note: This doesn't work with a red anchor.
 Anchor over anchor 2
If you add a item to another item with a blue anchor, for example a long board nailed to a short board thats held in place by a red anchor, you can do an arrow anchor with a rotating anchor or a yellow anchor to make it move or stop moving.
Note: You can do this as many times as you want.
