The following updates have been applied to all Silvie's Mine 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 Silvie's Mine 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 in total per NPC.
  • Affection gained or lost has been increased to be equal to doing 7 quests/day 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.

  • Totems, Pen Expansions, and Wardrobe Expansions, have been moved to each NPC's Bonus Prize pool in their shop instead of being in the chance pool.
  • 2+ newly drawn items have been added to each NPC's clothing set, each item with colourations matching that of the existing sets.
  • 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.
  • Pet Hatching items and NPC food have been added to the bonus prize pool as well while keeping them in the chance pool.

  • This is the third 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 Aviar Cove daily balancing!

POTATO SINK PLANS
With the progression of rebalancing, dailies have become easier to complete and therefore generating more potatoes for more users across the site. This is causing some inflation which we will be addressing in the following ways:
  • Increase the frequency of the custom limit 10 day reset to 7 days instead to encourage potato spending to happen more often. This will happen with our next changelog later this month.
  • Work on adding new seasonal, permanent, and limited content that costs potatoes.

Note: Pinot's second Affection Milestone quest is now available to complete once unlocked. Previously it was stuck behind this balancing update.

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

  • Villager pumpkins (#27825) 9 Feb 2023, 6:50 am
    Hey staff - has there been consideration that a 7 day cycle for customs drop would always fall on the same day of the week?
    This would make it rather unfair for users unavailable on that given day.

    Could we consider 151 hour or 165 hour (7 days +/- 3 hours) so that the time of the day and the day of the week will automatically cycle?
  • Villager Clover23 (#14006) 9 Feb 2023, 7:49 am
    YAY I've been waiting for this! So excited for the new items too!
  • Villager Kanada (#2634) 9 Feb 2023, 7:58 am
    OHHH those new pets look so CUUUTE!!! I’m so excited, thank you DV team! Silvie’s Mine really needed this!
  • Villager Kanada (#2634) 9 Feb 2023, 8:00 am
    I have a suggestion for potato sinking though; I think there should be a potato sink shop of some kind! One that has expensive hatching items and other super cool items!! That way the only sink isn’t the custom spinning :)
