The following updates have been applied to all Louise Hill Daily Errands.
  • Maximum completions for each daily quest in Louise Hill have gone from 7 to 3.
  • A reroll option with the player choice text "Can I help you with something else instead?" has been added to the beginning of each task.
    • This option can be used once per quest completion to generate a new task different from the initial one.

  • Tasks have been either edited or scaled according to the reduced number of dailies each day. Some higher effort tasks such as adventuring have stayed the same for better balancing.
  • Positive quest ending potato rewards were greatly increased.
  • Affection gained or lost has been multiplied to be equal to doing 7 quests previously.
  • Conecake rewards are now multiplied and increased.
  • Dual-stat NPC's now give out a random assortment of the two types of conecakes instead of a set kind.
  • Dialogue has been compressed to fewer total text boxes to lessen clicks.
  • Transitions and redirects have been updated to be more streamlined and give users more freedom.

futureplansbanner.png
  • This is the first major installment of daily quest balancing that we have planned. We're planning to release these updates town by town in order to eventually balance all existing towns.
  • With the addition of new items as well as bonus prize pools for NPC shops, we're aiming to make it so that certain items are obtained by choice rather than by chance. For example, the pen expansions were being dropped too often and filling up inventories without any purpose, now they can be picked up only if the user wants one.
  • In addition, the bonus prize and shop stock updates have opened the possibility of adding new items more easily to NPC shops in the future within smaller content updates.
  • We'll be looking at how everything plays out on site scale and making any adjustments and notes for future updates!
  • Coming up next is the 3's Forest daily balancing, which will include a rebalancing of the 3 witches' temporary dailies within the main questline.
  • It's our hope that these balancing updates will make one of the core mechanics of Dappervolk more streamlined, less click intensive, less repetitive, as well as giving users some agency via the reroll option.

We hope you enjoy this balancing update, thank you for supporting and playing Dappervolk! We'll be back with more updates soon.

    Honestly thank you so much. I've had to leave DV and come back many times because of wrist and hand pain from all the clicking and keyboard use. I also love the updated items and recolors. Thank you for listening to the users about the pain they were experiencing from this site.

    OFJSRGKDG YEAAAAAAHHHHHH HYPE!!
  • Villager Luvicks (#63364) 17 Jun 2022, 9:31 am
    LET'S GOOOO
    Thank you so much devs for this update! I'm super pumped to test the new quests, and the new items are GORGEOUS!
  • Villager BlackRose (#9895) 17 Jun 2022, 9:32 am
    Oh wow, this all looks really great! Actually really makes me want to start doing dailies again, so I can't wait to get into that! ^-^ Thank you so much for listening to players and for all of the hard work that I'm sure went into this update. The new items and bonus prize pools are really nice!

  • Villager fairywren (#4265) 17 Jun 2022, 10:07 am
    thank you sooooooooo much for this update... holy cow.

    i just finished doing louise hill dailies and it took me less than 10 minutes. it felt like about 5 minutes when usually doing a whole town (while skipping adventuring) takes about 15-20. the sheer amount of clicking and page refreshing pads so much time onto extremely simple tasks like you wouldn't believe.

    3 tasks seems reasonable to me. being able to consolidate actions into a single task (interact 3 times, feed 3 times, play 2 minigames, w/e) is great. i love it.

    the fact that i can roll a different task if i don't want to do whatever's being asked is also very nice. at first i thought it would be a totally random reroll, but upon re-read it definitely gives you a new task different from the first one which is just awesome. thank you so much for making it so we won't get suck in bad luck loops!

    i also actually got some potatoes from doing this instead of.... like... nothing lol. hopefully the inflation from it isn't too bad. but eh, you know how it is. balancing game economies sucks and is hard. i think newbies will really enjoy having more than a piddly handful of potatoes to spend from louise hill, haha.
