Wanted to put a quick note up this morning with some upcoming changes and of course, to list the top voters from July!
So here's the voting results:
1st place - Lipheles, Indergrimm, Ethyrea
2nd place - Dardin
3rd place - Kaelynn
We had even more votes this month than the previous month so thank you for that :) These guys will be getting in game non combat pets this month as their reward plus... a little something extra for the 1st place folks.
Now -- here's the change that I have been working on implementing :)
I have a hard time selling these in the shop since I don't want to financially benefit from someone else's mod so I've been brainstorming on how I could start using these as rewards instead. Here's the breakdown and while I'm open to feedback, remember that I don't want anything to be 'easy'.
There will be two ways to earn the mounts. Mounts are limited to 4 per person and will all be male gendered (so you cannot breed them).
- 100% voting for a month
- Recruit a friend to the server AND that friend must reach 70 FAITH
Each month that you earn another 100% voting (30 or 31 votes depending on the month), you will earn another drake. Alternately, you can recruit your friends to play here and after they reach 70 faith, you can do /support to request the drake.
All drakes rewarded will be BLUE. You will need to brand them. We are not responsible for your lost mounts. Once the mount dies of old age, you'll need to earn a new one.
The recruited friend does NOT receive the mount for reaching 70 faith. Only the person that initially recruited them. The recruiter MUST submit a ticket using /support the first day the person joins the server indicating that they are a friend recruit. I will put you in the drake mount tracking spreadsheet at that point.
This is NOT retroactive. I will check creation date on characters and look at ip's also so please don't try to cheat. The first 3 drakes will be given out today to July's top 3 voters and I hope we will see an increase in that number September 1st.
I hope you guys will enjoy this and if you have anything constructive to add, please let me know :)
Also say goodbye to the following items from our shop -- these will no longer be available to purchase:
Sleep powder, scroll of binding, and non combat pets
Lastly, we will be doing a month long event to continue clearing non aggressive creatures off the map but also prep for road construction projects in the future. You may create and turn in large crates of catseyes to earn money this month. For every 300 catseyes you turn in, you will earn 1.5s. Participation is easy. Kill things that drop eyes, craft the catseyes, fill up a large crate with them, put your name on the crate and then do /support to turn it in. The crate will be returned to you after the event is over. Various prizes will be rewarded at the end of the event based on how many crates you turn in. Minimum QL of the catseyes must be at least 10 so they can be placed on the roads.
As always, we enjoy the time together and look forward to more fun with you guys this month :)
Edit: noticed no change in speed with or without traits so removed that option. We will also do red, green, and black drakes at a later time (since someone asked about the other colors)
