Let there be a 1/8192 chance that each time we log in and battle woolzard it is shiny and it gives the shiny reward. Shiny hunters, assemble!

It took me a lot longer than I'd like to admit to figure out the reference.

Great idea folks! There will be a rare chance to battle a "shiny" version of the mob that will unlock different versions of the pet and house guard rewards. The idea right now is the more you battle the more your odds increase, plus there may be some items that will also raise your chances of the rare encounter.

We are also planning a new way to rotate the Void Takeover mobs, something like every 3 days. That could possibly happen in May.

Every 3 days? Will each boss have a house painting with them?

I ask because I wonder if that is enough time to get a painting for each before they are gone.

If you are introducing a shiny mechanic then shouldn't the void boss stay around for longer than 3 days so everyone has a chance to encounter them? Some people don't have time to farm or aren't available for a few days cause of work or whatever.

3 days isn't set in stone, that may be changed as we start on the project. All the Void Takeover mobs will have a painting.

Wow I'm glad he can be shiny now, I spend way too much time shiny hunting in Pokemon so this will be fun.

This is my first year actually participating in the gold/Z-token giveaway (that I remember anyway), and the first year in a long while that I've played seriously. It's been a lot of fun getting back into the grind and playing through old and new quests. :3

Anyway, I have a bit of a silly question that I haven't been able to find an answer for. How are the Fenrir and Balmung rewards actually collected? Do they just show up in my inventory, or will/do I have to pick them up from a shop?

Rewards such as these are placed in your inventory if the necessary requirements to get them are met.

May I suggest a rotation period somewhere between 1-3 weeks for the Void? Where on that scale depends on how many different enemies are being added to the rotation, but the longer period can help with:

- Users that need time to plan out and prepare for the boss fight, through experimenting to see how each boss works or fetching gear specific for a boss.
- People that may be otherwise engaged for short periods of time; being busy for 2 weeks straight is a lot less likely than being busy for 3 days (less than a work week).
- Maintaining engagement with the game. This one can be 50/50, as people could be forced to wait for (period * number of void mobs on rotation) before they can fight the one they want, but on the other side it can act as a mid-term goal, sitting between seasonal (yearly) things and the weekly updates.

Example numbers:

If you want players to wait a maximum of 3 months for a given boss, and there are 12 bosses on rotation, you'd have a weekly rotation
If you want players to wait a maximum of 3 months for a given boss, and there are 6 bosses in rotation, you'd have a bi-weekly rotation

This all depends on the number of bosses you plan to have on rotation at a given time, and how long you'd expect players to wait before they can take on a specific boss. This can also allow for "rare" bosses by having some number of time slots also rotate e.g.:

Every week there's a different boss, but on the 6th week (before it loops back around and starts again), the void fight could be chosen from a pool of bosses. Say N is a normal boss on rotation, and R1, R2 are 2 rare bosses. The rotation would look like so: N N N N N R1 N N N N N R2 N N N N N R1 etc.

Just some suggestions on how it could work. Also special event bosses like the May 4th fight could cause issues such as cutting a monster's availability short, so that's something to consider.

Fantastic. A longer duration is preferable, so as to prevent players from burning through all of them so quickly, then losing all interest in The Void. A two-week rotation would give us months of content to look forward to, and allow ample time to complete the challenge. Quick rotations also make the paintings undesirable. Hopefully, some of them remain seasonal (eg: StarSlayer, Rhubzard), so we have something to look forward to both in the long, and short term.

Right now this is looking like a Friday release folks!

Imr needs one more day to get the Void Takeover ready, contest rewards should still be arriving later today.

mind if I ask, why are both the Chaoswrought and Sunscale weapons only available in the sword form when the newsletter did showed 2 other forms of each (a shorter curved sword and a spear for Chaoswrought, a larger sword and a staff for Sunscale)? It is only toggleable between Melee and Magic and not Ranged and Magic is still the same form just with an aura around it.

That means for crazy generous players there are 14 possible items to win!


What happened to the other 2 weapons of each?

So will the new PokeZard replace Rhubzard or Mr Frostvale, because he's been there for a while and I'm wondering if he's permanent now.

The other Void bosses will leave once WoolZard arrives. The release should be arriving later this evening. Imr is a big pokemon fan so she has been working hard to do some cool stuff with the mob and rewards!
