Hey there, looks like you just wandered in. Why not have a look around and stay for a while, maybe even start your own adventure, if you're into that.

Welcome to June!

Hello everyone! Welcome to June, we hope you're having lots of fun with the spring festivities!

Our 24th month of limited shops has arrived:
June's theme is the Ravencrypt Vintner!

The guttural call of a dark winged bird sounds like mist across deep waters. A red ring illuminates the moon, warning of calamity and a fall from grace.

Every year in June on Dappervolk, rainbows and prisms light up
the landscape anywhere they can. In the sky after a light mist,
in the reflection over a lake, and in the eyes of your loved ones.

QUEST BALANCING - LOUISE HILL
Our first round of quest balancing and existing town updates is scheduled for some time in the first half of the month. We're in our final stages of testing and asset preparation, and excited to see what you think!
Here's a more finalized list of daily quest updates as well as new assets and balancing adjustments for the update:
  • Max daily quest completions will be lowered from 7 to 3 per day.
  • Both tasks and rewards will be adjusted and scaled up accordingly. Potato rewards will be raised overall.
  • A Task Reroll option will be available at least once per quest and avoid the task you rerolled from.
  • Dialogue will be condensed together where possible to reduce clicks but not remove written assets.
  • Any transition issues will be adjusted for smoother questing.
  • Each NPC shop will house new items and a new set of recolours.
  • Certain items such as pen expansions and wardrobe expansions will be moved to npc shop bonus claims for more player choice.

We're also working on the 3's Forest balancing update which will happen some time after this month!

DAPPERVOLK'S SECOND ANNIVERSARY
June 21st marks our second year since official launch! Time sure flies, and we're so excited to be here with you. We have some small surprises and festivities in store for this anniversary, so look forward to it!

SUMMER EVENT DECISIONS
If we were to host a new deity based event this summer, Ivita would be the only deity that doesn't yet have any quests during this season, but time is quite tight since Ivita's month is in July. After some consideration, we've come to the conclusion that there isn't enough time to prepare a fully realized ivita event, and having back to back events with no downtime wouldn't be feasible for our team right now. 

So, instead of an Ivita summer event in July this year, we're planning to work on and launch a new team-based event type some time in late summer with a non-deity theme. The event will be focused around new mechanics and there should be some fun surprises and deviation from the norm, this will be a good way for us to test this event type for the first time and also give us time to prepare a fuller story for Fall. We'll keep you posted on developments, thanks for understanding!

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 some items above are in order.

    The new set is definitely pretty, though I would've expected it in October, not June. XD

    Those talking about the higher price should take a step back and look at what previous sets were and what prices they were. I honestly thought the price was a bit high too, but then I went through and looked at the prices and no, it's basically right around what a set like this should be. Which I do still feel is high, but I mean they've always been touted as premium clothing, so premium stuff is going to be expensive as much as I do dislike that being someone who can't buy Turnips with real money. I think my math is all correct, but it was a lot of info to keep track of so maybe some things are slightly off. LOl


    I am actually very glad you posted all of that. I hadn't really considered all of the variables that had/have been going on with the amount of items and pets included. And if you think about it, though we have to pay rl money for the turnips, we can generally make at least some back in potatoes. Some of the time anyway. LOL TY again!

    I'm glad my info has been helpful for some! ^-^

    I originally went through everything just for my own curiosity since I was also wondering if and how prices were changing (I'm guilty of having "complained" in the past when certain Pai items got more expensive, was almost going to this time too before I got curious and decided to look into it xD), and then figured why not post my findings to try to ease some worries since I found that it just seems like prices are fluctuating because of item amounts and types.

    All I can think about with this news post is how I might still be playing if these questing rebalances happened two years ago.

    Better late than never I guess.

    Thank you for the rebalancing! I'm so excited to finally do my dailies and have fun with all the new recolors. I'm especially excited about Bulli's shop <3
