Release Notes version 1.78 in Beta



Today's update includes the following content:
Miscellaneous

  • At the moment we have disabled the possibility to use other enchantments than Pet Food on the Phoenix buildings. Due to an oversight this was possible before, but doing so made you unable to use Pet Food on it afterwards. Since we prioritize Pet Food over Enchantments, we have now corrected this.
Kind regards,
Your Elvenar Beta Team

A manufacturing challenge has just started on beta. It lasts 72 hours, and the different waypoints get you spell fragments, combining catalysts, or vision vapour. In the version I'm seeing the last waypoint is won when you get 3600 medals. Not sure if everyone gets the same version, or if there's multiple kinds. *Edit* So far no reports of different versions, so there's probably just the one.

In this version the things that earn you medals are:
3hr goods production = 10 medals
9hr goods production = 20 medals
1 day goods production = 40 medals
2 day goods production = 60 medals
3hr sentient goods production = 40 medals
9hr sentient goods production = 60 medals
Use purple/blue/yellow spell = 10 medals
Use orange spell = 30 medals
Note that the goods production doesn't need to be your boost, and can be any tier. Basically, anything will work. *Edit* Updated with figures for sentient goods.

The prizes are:
180 medals = 500 spell fragments
540 medals = 3 CC spells
1080 medals = 1000 spell fragments
1980 medals = 5 CC spells
3600 medals = 25 Vision Vapour

Today's upgrade in Beta:

Dear Humans and Elves,

We have updated Elvenar Beta to version 1.80! Today's update includes the following content:

Balancing
  • The Stonehenge building has gotten some changes:
    • The building now produces every 48h and not every 24h.
    • Because of that, the production values have also been updated: regular resources are now doubled.
    • In later stages, the building now gives 3KP for each production cycle.

Is it just me or does the Stonehenge building have only a fraction of the power of the Phoenixes?... whilst also being the better part of twice as big?

Hmm... I do want a Stonehenge in my city though. It's one of my favourite henges.

It doesn't have good stats (even fully evolved) for a building this size, so I don't think I'll build it.
Too bad because it does look very nice.

The thing that stands out as disappointing to me is that it has a whole new type of artifact. It would make total sense to me for these new style evolving buildings to be all upgradeable by the same artifacts we pick up along the way and that we would be able to choose which building to evolve.

It now seems likely to me that the extra artifact from the recent challenge is probably the last one we will ever see to allow us to evolve a Phoenix.

I think more Phoenix artifacts will show up at the next Phoenix event at the latest.
And who knows, there might be more artifacts to be won at the next craftsman challenge and/or Fellowship Adventure.
But even if they don't, I already got my Fire Phoenix to level 10 so I'm happy. ;)

The problem is if 3 months from now the top prize for _____ is a phoenix artifact, how will every player who starts this game in the next 3 months feel about it?
6 months? 9 months?

This is a good point, which is also more so why I hoped that another couple might pop up in the next couple of months - maybe an FA and a mini event, but alas I still think now that Inno is done with Phoenix artifacts. There is another month long quest now and probably the next thing might offer another spare "Stonehenge Artifact". After that time the ship has probably sailed. Still, I'll be happy with what I have, but it's a pity nonetheless.

Universal Artifacts in future is a possibility, but alas I see @SoggyShorts point. New players are the moneymaker for Inno and for the gaming market as a whole. Get a little off the thousands of new, and more off the one or two seems to be the business plan, and as a company out to deliver a quality game that makes sense.
Someone has to fund our love of Elvenar. :)

Maybe its shape is okay, but not the colour. Even the builder hut is changed.
I thought the green rewards would be fantastic with the constructs' buildings, next chapter.
But, now I'll use that money to start a new long journey may quit this game soon.

So no blueprints to convert, or spells to use. No reason to have to craft anything, as I guess you didn't build a phoenix from the last event.
All I can say is that is your choice.
Say I choose not to build houses, yes I can still play and progress in the game so respect your choice in how to play.
That is your choice however so have no sympathy when it comes to quest selection for an event.
@chinto If you don't like the event quests you always have the choice not to participate in the events and just ignore them completely. :)

I don't understand how you can not build a Magic Academy. I know there are creative or unusual choices that can be made in this game (i.e. I decided not to have a Mercenary Camp or Training Grounds), but you cut off such a huge element of the game not having an MA.

i also didnt have a MA on most of my towns (on my main it was too late allready) untill recently. it was perfectly fine for me, i didnt need anything from the crafting part, and spells, well i got loads of those from events/tournemant. I did however build the MA in every town now, because the eventquests need it. It allowed me to win more wishing wells, which in term allowed me to get an expansions where i could place the MA.
