UPCOMING SPRING EVENT INFO
Here are some details on the upcoming Spring Event!

co-op-event-type.png

After going through feedback from previous years for the co-op style event, we've made some major updates to this year's event mechanics!
  • Instead of a single progress bar for event completion, there will be a series of community milestone prizes which are unlocked by the community's collective efforts.
  • Milestone prizes can be claimed by all participants regardless of contribution level once the prize is unlocked.
  • There will also be individual prize tiers for dedicated participants.
  • The community milestones can be reached by collective donation of a certain currency item which will be rewarded through event mechanics.
  • All tasks in the event will be tracked passively after visiting the event page for the first time, garnering donation currency as well as points towards individual prizes.
  • There will be a new pet interaction mechanic which generates rewards and cute effects on participating pets!

SEASONAL MAP, NPC, QUESTS, EVENT SHOP
  • There will be a new seasonal mini town available to be visited during the event!
  • A new seasonal NPC also inhabits this area, with a set of event quests which can be completed for seasonal currency.
  • The new seasonal town along with its NPC will disappear once the event ends, to return annually as a seasonal quest.
  • An event shop will become accessible on the second day of the event on May 24th at 6pm DVT, stocked with all seasonal items for spring.
  • Event currency will be earned through the Co-op Event, Seasonal Event Quests, and various site mechanics.

SPRING EVENT PREPARATION
After initially postponing the event launch date due to the size of our recipe balancing update, our preparation is coming along well! We'll be posting an announcement news post with details once we're ready. Thank you everyone for your patience, we're excited to spend spring time with you!

CUSTOM QUEUE
Last month, we needed to focus on other artwork so April's batch of new customs was pushed into May. We're planning to catch up on this delay by claiming an extra custom or two each month in which there's time to claim extras. This means that instead of just 6 claims in a month, there may be 7-8 for a few months going forward depending on our workload for that month.

QUEST BALANCING
We're preparing for our Louise Hill Daily Quest Rebalancing update this month along with the Spring Event. We're hoping to get the update out late this month while also not overlapping too much with other updates. Our plan after getting the first town's rebalancing done is to push out one town's rebalancing every month or two until all existing town dailies have been rebalanced, along with the additional stock in their shops.

BETA CHANGELOG & ROADMAP THREAD
These two items are on our to-do list, and will remain here until they are complete! Our aim currently is to get these items done once event preparation and some items above are in order.

Recipe Balancing Update!

Hello everyone! The recipe balancing update we've been working hard on over the past while is ready and has been released into the wild!

269-N7rPyxTCfn-sunstone-goat-recipe.png officiator.png 827-PYd1ApCqgf-essence-jug-item-recipe.png
recordoffice.png 

  • All recipes currently obtainable on site have been moved to be sold in the Officiator's Record Office shop.
  • Recipes in the shop can be purchased with Record Tokens, a new permanently available currency item!

officiator-token.pnghowtogettokens.png

  • Record Tokens are a permanently available, tradeable currency item. Visit the Officiator in Peddler's Port and do the Official Token Exchange daily quest in order to obtain them.
  • Each time 20 tokens worth of items are purchased from the Record Office, a free item can be claimed from Bonus Prizes in the shop. These include Officiator clothing items and legendary pet recipes.
  • The Officiator currently asks for item alchemy to be performed in exchange for tokens, over time the task required may change.
  • In the future, we would like to code in a new item hand in UI in the daily quest for a better item sink interface.

Recipe items in Random Item Alchemy, Agnes' Daily Gift quest, Random Encounters, and Adventuring have been replaced with a large collection of new items and pets!
Here is a sneak peek of some of the new content.

Hint: There are many items in this new collection which can be combined into new items so look out for this text in item descriptions!

Try alchemizing five of these together."

4 pertinent new recipe items now also reside in the Record Office.

  • The purpose of this update is to tackle several balancing improvements including recipe distribution, RNG pool appeal, and item sinks.
  • Recipe items were found all around the site but in essence you only really needed one of each recipe.
  • This update will make obtaining recipes purposeful instead of by chance, and frees up the space in various reward pools for new and more interesting items.
  • We also took the chance to create an item sink quest and shop so we're looking forward to seeing how this impacts the game!

RECIPE BALANCING
Our artist team is working hard on completing all the assets for recipe balancing! We have a number of things left to do such as final assets, item sink quest planning, rearranging item pools, and shop planning, which we'll be focusing on this month along with event preparation. We're hoping to release the recipe rebalance some time this month before the spring event, wish us luck!

SPRING EVENT PREPARATION
We're currently working hard on the event overhaul coding, artwork, and storyline for the Spring event! Depending on how things progress, we will hold the event either near the end of April or in early May if we need the extra time. We'll keep you updated and post an announcement news post when we're ready to announce the event start date. We're excited to share the new event with everyone!

QUEST BALANCING
Our artist team's workload after the recipe rebalancing assets is the quest balancing new Louise Hill shop items, everything is progressing at a fair pace currently. We're also working on updating and testing rebalanced dailies for the town to make sure they work well and are well balanced.

BETA CHANGELOG & ROADMAP THREAD
These two items are on our to-do list, and will remain here until they are complete! Our aim currently is to get these items done once event preparation and some items above are in order.
