Skills and Scarls Starting February off, we have a number of new things for you to enjoy, including a new species obtained in a unique way through Adventure. The Scarl is a pet you've seen before - there was a call for PSD files for it during the last weeks of January. It is a rare pet that is made with an item called a Mermaid's Purse. This custom item allows you to make a 50% edited Scarl. But, it's different from other custom makers. Mermaid's Purse is account bound, which means it cannot be sold, traded, or given away (though the pet made from it can be). You can also only have one on your account at a time, which means you need to make a Scarl before you obtain another Mermaid's Purse. Mermaid's Purse are obtained through the "Hidden Item" hook of Adventure - you've probably seen it before, it goes like this: If you come across a hidden item and obtain it, there's a small chance you'll get the custom making item along with it. But remember, if you already have one, you can't get another one until you use it! Each pet is naturally born with a skill depending on its genus, and all pets have at least one natural skill. However, now you can obtain items to give your pets additional hidden item skills! You can either buy the skill items at the Explore Shop for 6,500,000 BP each, or you can pick up a pack of four skills in the USD Shop for $15.00, depending on your preference. Pets with all four hidden item skills will be able to pick up any hidden item they see, and will have a much higher chance of obtaining a Mermaid's Purse because you must successfully pick up the hidden item to have a chance at the custom maker. The Edit Repository is what we are rolling out along with the Scarl release. This is a feature where artists can upload their FREE USE PSDs for custom pets (the only rule is that the PSD needs to be free. Any other rules can be indicated by the artist in the comments of the submission). Other users can download the PSDs, color them, and submit them to the custom queue. Folks who were hired to create Scarl PSDs: please upload the designs you made to this new feature now. Other users will be able to enjoy them and start on submitting their Scarls right away. All designs paid for during that period will be automatically ruled Blue if not further edited by the player. The repository will have a queue that is managed by multiple edit check trainees. They will mark whether a PSD is bronze, blue, gold, or silver for reference. When you turn in a repository custom pet that has not been edited further, indicate on your custom notes if the pet was ruled in the repository as that crystal to speed your service. (Please note that the customs department reserves the right to adjust the "color" of a repository PSD if a mistake is made, as these are our trainees.) The repository is a neat feature that allows you to tag your PSDs with themes, and search by the themes, crystal color, and by pet genus. Last (and admittedly forgotten), the experience gained per monster battle has been bumped up to about double what it was before. This month staff is going to be looking into the EXP curve of leveling and battling to make it more reasonable and fun to play. We regret to inform you that the adventure recoders have dropped their project, so we will be working with adventure as it is. We hope you enjoy the updates and look forward to the big February posts coming up later today and tomorrow!
Woohoo! Tip: Don't use the quick search often? Try it out! It's really useful for finding pets if you're a collector of a certain type, since you can search for words like "rainbow," "dragon," or--in my case this afternoon--"happy"! - Eri
