Water Gate Preview The next Gate is still a little ways away but Eric and True Mortal have been working on some spectacular art for it!
The Doom weapons are some of the most iconic items in DragonFable. As players have grown in power so has the dark and evil power contained within these metal and bone blades.
Many of you use the power of these dark weapons to fight against the monsters and enemies that walk through the world of Lore... but how many of you remember their original art? I came across the originals for the ShadowReaper and Twin Blades today and wanted to share!
Ranger The Ranger update is coming along nicely! Dracelix has been working on the class and it looks amazing! There's still a little work to do but it should be available soon in game!
Friday Danyel has some chores for you and Tomix to do this Friday... I hope you're ready to get dirty in Edelia!
Tomix made a gorgeous deck of elemental cards and they're ready to be dealt in the Card Shoppe! Just pick two cards! You might get a mysterious fortune... or you might have to face the shade of a past monster. A very powerful monster.... Can you make your way through the whole deck?
Dracelix has also created new versions of the original card weapons! A huge thank you to Baron Dante for his help with their stats!
First Present! Rolith sent out our first present of the month this afternoon. Everyone received 200 free Dragon Coins! Just wait until you see what you guys are going to get next week too!
Ultimate Dragon Scythe of Elementals The scythe is now available through your Book of Lore! There are seven elements to choose from for seven years of DragonFable. It will only be available during our birthday month!
Cronix has been working on the crazy, amazing, gorgeous Ultimate Dragon's Scythe of Elementals that will be up for sale during our 7th birthday celebration this month and, since it's our 7th birthday, this scythe will have seven elemental options! Today, we have previews of Fire, IceWater, and Wind, just click on the first three orbs in picture below.
This ultimate weapon, that you will be able to level up through the Black Market Moglin, will only be available until the end of June and will cost 5000 Dragon Coins. If you have a Dragon Amulet, you will be able to get the exact same scythe for 500 Dragon Coins!
Ravenloss This Friday will see the opening of the Card Shop in Ravenloss as well! Feel like having your fortune read?
Book 3 Ravenloss is now open! Visit Serenity's Inn, ask her for a room until nightfall, then head to the portal in southern Falconreach to get there. You can then take the portal to a gorgeous city that Tomix has worked incredibly hard to create!
This year, an epic saga will unfold there! This is just the beginning!
As you explore the city, you'll see minotaurs, dracomancers, Clawkin and a new species of dark elf! Lots of magical species have tried to take refuge in the hidden city under Falconreach... but how long will it remain safe?
Dracelix has also refreshed the Card Shop items! We have a preview for them now and they'll be coming soon in game!
This week Tomix has a sneak preview of his work on Book 3 Ravenloss! While still a few weeks away, once the portal opens you'll have a lot to explore, a lot of new NPCs to meet and an epic saga to fight through!
We have a great new TwT this week! Tomix has been working on the Book 3 version of Ravenloss and here's a preview of the walkaround. You can click on the edges of movie and explore a bit!
We're still a ways off from the new version of Ravenloss being live in game, but we will be catching up with Tomix, Riadne and more in Book 3!
Friday The final quest for this years Mogloween will be this Friday, where you'll be able to help some four footed friends find their way back to Croft. Some of the 2012 Mogloween masks will also go on sale in Cysero's Superstore, as well!
Tomix is also working on the final animation issues with Pyromancer but Cysero should have some in stock on Friday (as long as nothing goes boooom). We do need to decide where the new fiery Pyromancer barber will be, too. If you were an expert in styling follicular flames where would you set up shop in Lore?
Warlic has been after Alex since he arrived in Swordhaven and Alex has had enough. Now he's looking for some revenge, even if it's not a direct confrontation.... This Friday, log in and help Alex decide just exactly how he gets back at his rival!
Edelian House Dracelix has completed another house inspired by Ravenloss. Kajap will have it in stock soon!
Grenwog Eric Greydawn was last seen laughing maniacally and twirling his moustache. Be afraid for next week's release!
Armor Paint Fairy More colors will be coming soon*! Rolith, in between his 87 other projects, is looking into the possibility** of adding hex code input into the Armor Paint Fairy! Keep in mind, there's no guarentees, but, if he can get it working, you guys should be able to fully color-coordinate your characters! Big thanks to Dracelix for passing on the idea!
* Probably not this week. ** No guarentees! If he can't get it working, we will add more general colors though!
As I write this, the war meter for Greed's side is sitting pretty at roughly 99.5%! You guys are ALMOST done with the rest of the war! And to reward you for all your hard work, we're introducing scythe replicas of the Judgement Wheel halves as soon as the war meter on Greed's side hits 100%.
They'll be sold for Dragon Coins from the War Chest in RavenLoss. They are some of the absolute prettiest weapons we have in-game. DEFINITELY worth your time and DCs to pick up!
So... ready for a peek at the art? I thought so!
Here's the Judgement Wheel: Guilt and below it is the Judgement Wheel: Innocence! I'll be oooh-ing and aaaah-ing; feel free to join in. I won't tell if you do.
And now for some more news on RavenLoss. I've been posting and re-posting this information on the forum all weekend, but I want to share it here for those of you who are not readers of our forum:
We are hard at work getting the art and animation for the Soul-Ally guest, Pellow Village town, and SoulWeaver class done, finished, and put to bed so that we can release it to you with glad hands and a happy heart. (That saying never made any sense to me. What are glad hands?!)
It won't be done this week, but Tomix is pushing his thread-heavy hands to finish the art for you. Once he does, Khelios will code it and I'll put all the pieces together with some more bits of code and tweaking to make it ready for you all to play.
We are sorry that it's not ready for you. We wish it were, because we really, REALLY want to see your reactions to all of it! We will finish them as soon as humanly (or, in Tomix's case, robotically) possible.
In the meantime, please enjoy the Judgement Wheel scythes and have fun continuing to farm the war. The war will be up in its current state until we release SoulWeaver class, Pellow Village, and the Soul-Ally guest.
I got a book. And another book that's waiting for the first book to be finished. So I'm going to go read my book (that I've been waiting EIGHT years for) while Rolith plays with a new toy and makes plans for his newest secret project.
This is the pinkest, heart-iest*, lovingest day of the year, and we want to celebrate it with you! And what better way to do that than with a brand new weapon set? Yay!
Coming later today will be the Poison and Roses weapon set from True Mortal. Be careful how you hold these weapons, because the love these weapons inspire is oh so beautiful, but very, very deadly!
Last week we released the previous years of Hero's Heart Day events, and THIS year's event will go live this Friday!
We know many of you are expecting 1) a war and 2) Lust from the Ravenloss Saga to be the main villain, but she's run off to who-knows-where. She doesn't want Tomix to find and destroy her! (Would you, if you were a corrupt spirit? I didn't think so.) And since we've JUST come off a huge war (a war we're not even DONE with!), starting another one would be a less-than-great idea. You warmongers need to take a breather! Conserve your strength!
That doesn't mean there won't be a villain this year. It's LORE and a holiday. Of COURSE there's going to be a villain! It'll be someone you recognize, but who hasn't shown their face in a couple of years. Will there be betrayal? Maybe! Tears? Probably! Pink? Most definitely! Happy speculating!
* Yarrrrr, it be Valentine's Day, maties! (Is what pirates say today.)
NEWS FROM RAVENLOSS:
We have some good news and some sub-great news! Which do you want first?
The under-good news? Ok!
We LOVE Hero's Heart Day here on the DF team. And we adore putting out awesome content for the holiday. The holiday that is only one week a year. So if we're going to do something for that holiday, we need to do it NOW. THIS week! So unfortunately we have to delay Pellow Village and the Soul-Ally content until next week.
We are definitely looking forward to releasing all of that, and we know you guys are, too! While we finish working on HHD and the Soul-Ally/Pellow Village content, why don't you guys work on getting the Greed meter up to 100%
Why does that matter? Becacuse of the good news! Cysero has created replicas of the Judgement Wheel from sketches Tomix made! As they are only replicas, they will not grant wishes. But they WILL serve you well in battle! There will be the Judgement Replica: Guilt and the Judgement Replica: Innocence. And since it's Cysero who made them, they'll be selling for Dragon Coins both in his shop and in the War Rewards chest in RavenLoss. These are some of the prettiest weapons we have in-game!
And the Hero's Heart Day event isn't all we're releasing this week! Geopetal is also planning on the next installation of the Earth Orb Saga!
The ChaosWeaver war meter is within 3% of the goal! That means in the next hour or two, you should unlock the Boss battle! And then, oh then, you'll see what has transpired due to your choices in the war.
May the Elemental Lords have mercy on you. But! Thanks to some of your fellow heroes (even possibly yourself) mercy WAS shown in this war, and that may make all the difference in the future. But I won't spoil plans any more than that for now.
Go, fight, win! The hour is upon you, and you will not be found wanting! Not if you're the hero I think you are.
Some news about the war:
Here are the war rewards we have ready for you!
ChaosWeaver Defender scythe series
RavenLoss WarMonger scythe series
The Equilibrium Gate Key scythe series
And if you chose to defend the ChaosWeavers, you'll get access to the ChaosWeaver Champion shop and cutscene. (The shop contains the BabyWeaver pet!)
Unfortunately, we were not able to finish everything in time. So the following will NOT be released when you finish the war tonight:
Pellow Village will NOT be ready to explore at the end of the War. We will work on that next week.
The ??? pet will be found INSIDE Pellow Village, so you'll get that once you are able to explore.
SoulWeaver class will NOT be unlocked for everyone because the SoulAlly cutscene is not ready. SoulWeaver testing for DragonLords will be left up in it's place. REALLY sorry about that! It should be ready in the next week or so.
We're really sorry about not having everything ready, but you guys just BLEW us away with how fast you did the war!
We ALSO have all previous years of Hero's Heart Day for you to play! So once you've beaten the war boss and sated your bloodlust, head on up to Falconreach and get your LOVE-GROOVE on! Deliver Snugglegrams, beat up a beating heart, meet Safiria, and help Ash get a girlfriend! What's the story for THIS year's Hero's Heart Day? You'll find out next Friday!
And don't forget about the Artix Entertainment Gametastic Game Challenge! For the past five days, most of the AE staff have been working on ten teams to get out TEN minigames for you to play! The challenge ended a half hour ago, and we are DONE!
Both Team Robot Unicorn (Rolith, Alina, Geopetal, and J6) as well as Team B055 Fight (Ghost and Artix) finished on time! Ai No Miko is working on the game pages now on the Game Challenge Portal site so that you can test them all!
And as a SPECIAL BONUS, J6 made 11 pets based on the characters in Team Robot Unicorn's game ("Gnome Man's Land") in AdventureQuest Worlds! Log in now and get yours! (I'm buying the airship. SQUEEEE!)
