The war challenge rewards are now live! Head to the Dark Night war camp and grab your War-Torn Clan Valtrith mask (with choice of hood!) and your Dark Night wall trophy for your house!
Will you go for Cultist chiq or Color Custom hoodiness?
Do not hang by anything flammable!
Archivist Armor Tomix has also given me a preview of the 2016 calendar armor for you! Presenting Archivist!
Hit monsters in the face with your giant Book of AWESOME!
Now, remember, on January 1st you'll get Archivist but it will have limited skills! As we work our way through 2016 there will be a questline, available to all players, that will explore and study the player's past heroics! We've already used the feedback you gave in the Greatest Moments thread to get the start on Archivist animations. What else would you guys like to see?
Make sure to cross your fingers tomorrow for Tomix as he goes in for surgery! He should return in a couple months refreshed and ready to get back to arting! (I hope with awesome laser eyes.)
Wow! Just amazingly done everyone! You came together and absolutely decimated Baron Jaysun Valtrith's siege!
You also absolutely, totally beat us to having the boss and cutscenes done.... So! The Unlucky Devs Shop! is now unlocked for you, which kicks off our 10 year anniversary celebration early! The first Unlucky Weapons were level 7 and released waaaaay back in 2009 when I was just a tiny pebble! Now you can enjoy using your very unlucky weapon at level 80 but beware!!! The pull of the dark power that surges through the weapons actually makes you weaker to Darkness!
Huge shout outs to Miran, who compiled this spiffy dataisbeautiful graph below which shows the Waves Per Minute (WPM) fluctuations throughout the week, Starflame13, who kept the challenges coming to those on the forums, megakyle777 and flashbang for their amazing comics, Dragonman for making sure his constituents kept fighting (I suspect he's gearing up for the next Mayoral election), nield, ultrashadowlord, Dornalca, gakorogirl and just tons more for fighting the good fight! Huge thanks to David the Wanderer, Elryn, San Robin, Gingkage and all the AKs for keeping the peace in the war threads! MVP for the war is Baron Dante who took out 12455 waves on his heroes alone!
Seriously, all you crushedthis war! Hold your heads high and take a break before the finale of the war comes tomorrow! You still have to rescue the soldiers that were dragged away!
The boss fight, sweet Bone Shard weapon rewards, the Clan Valtrith war challenge masks, and a special house item to hang on your wall to commemorate the Dark Knight war will all be coming on Friday!
Also, you guys are tooootally going faster than poor Tomix can animate... the mid-war cutscene might end up being the 75% cutscene at this rate (not to mention the war ending cutscene). Maybe Valtrith has some reinforcements lying around somewhere... /geopanic
The sky has gone red and a dark fog has risen in the woods by the Bay. Falconreach and Oaklore are under siege! Log in now and fight to defend your hometown!
A War Challenge has been issued! If you can defeat Jaysun's army before 6pm EST on Friday, November 20th, you'll get access to your very own war-torn Clan Valtrith mask to equip! Seriously, nothing would drive Jaysun more crazy than to see the symbol of his clan worn by someone he found "undeserving".
New Elemental Unity and Medal Cannon trinkets and Defender/Dragon Defender Belts have been added to the appropriate shops!
Moved Quests Corundum Corruption is now located in Book 3 Ash Dragonblade's letters section! Loremaster Oruni... well, for now she's disappeared! She'll reappear someplace... dark this weekend.
It's DragonFable's 8th birthday week and it has been a busy one! We have stuff from Tomix, Oishii, Verlyrus, Ash, Dracelix, and Cronix this week!
Friday the 13th: Full Moon Book 3 Amityvale is under attack! Were-creatures are stalking through Doomwood and they're intent on tearing down the town! There is one week to defeat all the werewolves, werebats, and wereligers... or Book 3 Amityvale will be destroyed! Thursday and her best friend, Raven, are going to need all the help they can get!
IF you can unlock the boss in time on Friday, then Book 3 Amityvale will be saved (and, after a few weeks of work to repair the damage, it will be added in game soon after)!
Earth, Water, and Fire Primal Skills Ash and Verlyrus have been working on bringing you the lost Primal skills for DragonFable's birthday this year! You can log in now and head to Book 3 Sunbreeze to start questing for them! The quests are available when you talk to Elysia about gaining the Primal Skills!
I wonder how those adult primal skills will influence the kid verison of your dragon...!
Bugs SMASHED!! Ash has been working his fingers to the bone to smash and smoosh bugs too!
CCEDL sound and color customization now works
Male DoomKnight Break does 2 hits now, as intended
Book 3 Ash no longer sticks on potion drinking
Book 3 Ash - Blade of Justice now working as intended
ChronoCorrupter no longer has a random grey cape
Special Present Still Coming! Verlyrus has been working on an ultra secret, super cool, long awaited project as well! It won't be ready for you guys until closer to the end of summer but he'll announce what it is at the beginning of next week and then keep you updated on his progress as it comes together!
He knows when you've been sleeping... he knows when you're awake... he knows you've been punting moglins.... so watch out, for goodness sake!
The War Challenge is now being issued! If you finish the war by midnight EST, on Saturday, December 21st, you'll get this awesome, creepy, cheery, icy, awesome, slightly creepy SkeleSnow pet, created by Dracelix! What do you guys think its official name should be? (I'm voting for Frank. He kinda looks like a Frank.)
The boss fight is the release for this week while, next week, we hope* to bring you two small releases during the week!
LQS The Eternity Joy shop will appear on the 27th of December!
I think you guys are going to be very happy when this current project of mine is done!
One of these icons will replace the chest in the Interface Bar.
New opening page for the DragonFable Book of Lore!
There is still a lot to do, so it will be a few weeks before the new version goes live, but this updated Book of Lore should eventually absorb the News Post in Falconreach. Which means, when this is finished, that you'll be able to get the weekly release info through your interface, no matter where your hometown is set!
Wrath of Wargoth The war is at 88% as of this post! You guys have until midnight tomorrow to beat the war challenge! Tomix is working hard on the boss animations and cutscenes, Verlyrus and Rolith are thinking up wicked skills for him and Dracelix is forging new fire/evil drops!
The coloring and shading will be inspired by Konnan's Lance!
Since Akriloth's defeat and the destruction of the Elemental Orbs, the elemental realms have been out of balance. Fire is weak and Wargoth, a master of flame, is looking to take over. As the flames begin to rise again, will Wargoth be able to enter the world to rule over the ashes?
New monsters appear in the waves, the catapault is up and, in the DA only quest, you can fight as Xan!
Log in and BattleOn! The War Challenge from last Friday the 13th war is put forth! There are three Fire Imp Hats that will become available if you can defeat 5 million waves by Friday, April 20th, at midnight!
The war is heating up but will you guys defeat all the waves in time to beat the War Challenge? If you guys get to 100% before midnight the Rainbow Saber will yours!
The war also has two unique boss fights, each with their own rewards! The Lucky stone set and the Au'Bacon set (which has a special that debuffs your enemy!).
Pellow Village New shops have opened in one of the buildings in Pellow Village, provided you've opened the Gate. Kajap is offering the new Ravenloss House and several brand new Ravenloss inspired items. The Soulweraver, Nicklos, has a full set of Weaver gear availble as well! Dracelix has been hard at work on these items!
RiftWalker Tomix has been working feverishly on the higher level version of the base classes. Check out Riftwalker!
Baron Au’Mydas is slowly but surely losing this war, but the heroes of Lore need your help! You are making great progress on the war, but time is running short. You have asked for a challenge, and as usual, ask and ye shall receive! Dracelix has created the rainbow lightsaber as a reward IF you reach 100% by midnight Friday night. Ghost is hard at work on cutscenes, and True Mortal is working on another weapon set even now. Good luck!
Click the green part of the hilt!
Pellow Village New shops will be coming to the village this Friday as well! Dracelix has created an amazing Soulweaver inspired set that will now be available! There will also be two new Ravenloss inspired houses and house items!
The next quest in the True Mortal saga is finally out! Eric has created a huge, monsterous fortress for you guys to explore. Will you be able to find the throne room after exploring all 42 rooms? What other secrets could this massive fortress hold?
If you can make it to the end Soul and Doom Harvester Wing drops will be your reward!
Defend Croft! The war in Croft is at 91%! Can you guys get it to 100% by midnight EST to meet the war challenge? The fate of the Zardbirillaomgiphant and Undead Chickencow pets hangs in the balance!
Once you reach 100% on the war meter, True Mortal has crafted a beautiful set of weapons that will drop from the war boss!
In the twilight darkness of the Croft woods nothing... living... stirs. The woods are silent except for the hero breathing. A full moon grins crazily overhead. Then... a shuffle... a groan...
The infected are coming!
How will you fight off their legions? Tomix has created a special Zardbie themed scythe for tonight's creepy Limited Quanity Shop! At 6pm, EST, 2000 of these infectiously, horrifyingly cool scythes will be available for 400 Dragon Coins each.
Extremely, grossly awesome!
War! What is it good for?! It's been a long weekend in Croft. Not only did you have to fight off hoardes of zombies but you all also had to Trick or Treat to get the cure out (and get access to all those spooky new masks from Tomix and True Mortal /cough). Getting candy seems to win out over defense though.... ;)
And so a wild challenge appears! Can you finish this war by Friday? Or will the zardbie waves prove too much?! New Defender Medal items will be added during the course of the week and, if you can defeat all the waves and unlock the boss by Friday, midnight*, then there might just be tiny Zardbified Gorillaphant and ChickenCow pets in it for you! If not... well, the infection will be cured by the Sisters!
The war rages and the race is on! Sepulchure's army continues to attack Falconreach but you guys are holding the line! If you can reach 50% by 5 tonight not only will you get a new cutscene to further the story... but you'll also get a new set of weapons from True Mortal!
The Challenge has been set! Get to 50% by 5PM EST to get your hands on the fiery Obsidian Dragon set!
In testing now! The boss fight is almost ready! Wow... just wow guys, good job!
Update: I borked something. Rolith to the rescue. I owe him some togsitting or something!
Update to the update: I'm so desperate to get this working I have Rolith working on this from a bathroom. It's the only room where he's staying that has an available outlet. So he's fixing the cutscene.... on a toilet. I owe him BIG TIME.
Update to the update to the update: Added the villain/anti-hero plushies to Cysero's Rare Pet Shop for you guys (they are permanently there).
Update x 4: I miss Ghost. He rocks. Rolith rocks too!
Update x 5: It works! It works! Thank you so much for being patient! The weapons are in and you'll notice a level 61 option. The level cap will go up on Monday!
Yet another update: Lim fixed the plushie pets already! I have to go into the database and change them to pets one by one, but if you clear cache everything should work. HUGE thank you to Verlyrus, he helped get stuff tested for you guys tonight!
Also, special thanks to my nephew, Jacob, for leaving his crayons behind after Christmas and to my Dad for the copious amount of paper I recycled. Also, that huge heart on the last page, totally not covering a mutant Maya head. Nope, def not. I hope you guys enjoyed the cutscene!
Update x7: Brand new Defender's Rings and Necklaces are now available!
Final Update: The Frostval Celebration has begun in Frostvale! Any presents still in inventories have been burst open so their plushie elementals can escape to wreak havoc in their owner's inventory and the presents shop, with all the presents in it, is now available from the storybook!
Special Addendum to the previous Design Notes! Happy New Years Eve to you all! I just wanted to clarify what's going to be released this weekend so no one misses anything and to firmly establish what the War Challenge is!
This week's release is: * War boss fight with foam weapons as rewards * Suggestion shop weapons in Serenity's Suggestion Shop * Fireworks for New Years * A special weapon set, helm and cape from True Mortal in Cysero's Shop at midnight * The presents opening at midnight * AND the Togicide from Rolith!
The War Challenge is, if you guys get to 100% before midnight on Saturday (EST) and beat me to finishing the final war quest you will get new levels on select defender's items (I think rings and necklaces, but I haven't decided 100% on that) and something special in Cysero's Shop.
Lim, being the evil genius that he is, has added a little taste of the special items that will be in Cysero's Shop as a rare drop the war waves. He's saying that he'll add a new ones when he notices the war is at 75%, 85% and 95%.... D;<
Unfortunately, poor Ghost is sick with pneumonia. Even though he's been zombified he still bravely tried to get the final war cutscene done for you guys, but the combination of zombie and Ghost had Artix on high alert. I've sent Ghost off to rest so that he gets better.
Though, this means that the geologist gets to make the final war cutscene.
(Well, with existing artwork but, still, I'm slightly panicking here.)
True Mortal has made some cool foam weapons as war rewards in addition to his contest weapons. (I could totally see the guys chasing each other around the office with these.)
Tomix has finished the final, very angry, slightly crazed Boss Plushie and Rolith has coded it, laughing manically the whole time. Lim is coming in and working on some of the presents. Alina is being awesome and helping me with database stuff even though she's on vacation.
So, I just have to make an awesome, amazing cutscene before you guys reach 100%.
Please fight slower.... :s
If you guys do manage to beat me (who am I kidding?) then I'll make sure to add something special to Cysero's Shop!
DISTRACTION!(fight sloooooooower) You can get FREE DragonCoins and even FREE BATTLEON POINTS through AExtras! You can also jump onto your Master Account and start earning free BattleOn Games Points using AExtras and use those Points to get stuff in ANY of our games!
Message to Ghost: First of all, you so better be in bed and resting and not reading this! If you are, don't stress and just get well soon! We got this! Maybe... Kinda... (fight sloooooooooooooooooooower) Feel better!
You guys are amazing! Awesome job getting to 50% and just in time! True Mortal's very own plushie has been added to the war waves now.... but it's not your average plushie! Will you be able to beat it?
The special DA random dungeon is also now open for you! Fight your way through the Plushies in the Snow and collect Bit's O' Stuffing to forge the new Icicle Scythes in the Defender's Rare Shop!
True Mortal has been skulking around looking for something to do (so many souls burnt!) and so... A Challenge Appears! I have tasked him with creating his first monster!
His monster is due by noon tomorrow. IF you guys get to 50% before noon the special mystery plushie will be added to the war waves! Will you be able to beat True Mortal? Or will the souls being burnt end up being yours?!
