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.

3's Forest Balancing Update!

Hello everyone, hope you're doing well! This is our 3's Forest Balancing Update! This update includes a rebalancing of all 3's Forest daily errand quests as well as a collection of new NPC items and NPC shop adjustments.

The following updates have been applied to all 3's Forest Daily Errands.
  • 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.

  • Daily Errands in 3's Forest can now be completed 3 times/day instead of 7.
  • Positive quest ending potato rewards were boosted, increasing daily potato gains from each errand by about 2400 potatoes.
  • Affection gained or lost has been increased to be equal to doing 7 quests previously.
  • Tasks have been adjusted according to the reduced number of dailies each day. Some higher effort tasks such as adventuring have stayed the same or been reduced for better balancing.
  • Conecake rewards were increased. Dual-stat NPC's now give out a random assortment of two types of conecakes instead of one.
  • 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.
  • Any 3's Forest daily quests that were in progress have been autocompleted so that users don't get stuck due to the quest changes.

  • An additional 4th set colour has been added for each NPC, and can be found in their chance shop stock as well as bonus prizes.

Several adjustments have been also made to the Louise Hill dailies after getting feedback for their balancing update, read about them in this changelog!

futureplansbanner.png
  • This is the second installment of daily quest balancing! We are releasing 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.
  • The bonus prize and shop stock updates have opened up the possibility of adding new items more easily to NPC shops in the future within smaller content updates.
  • Coming up next is the Silvie's Mine daily balancing!

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