Well, the day has finally arrived, the official release of the Spirit Animals series!
Before diving into some of the new game features we've added I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in the Spirit Animals Game Beta. It was incredibly fun to see you all playing and enjoying the game! More importantly, the feedback and suggestions you guys have made on ways we can improve have been EXTREMELY helpful. I can say that many of the ideas you have suggested are in the works and will be out with future updates! So on behalf of the entire Spirit Animals team here at Scholastic: THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Ok, now onto the release notes! There have been a ton of changes since the last Beta update so I will stick to the major ones:
- Added the Komodo Dragon Spirit Animal -
Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome the newest spirit animal to the group! We have added in the Komodo Dragon spirit animal and I have to say, I think its my new favorite! All players who have added at least one Spirit Animals book to their account will now get access to two super sweet awesome Spirit Animals, the Komodo Dragon and the Penguin! Enjoy!
- Level Cap Increased to 30 -
We have increased the level cap from 20 to 30. In two weeks time (September 23rd) we will be increasing the level cap again to the maximum level (level 40). If you hit the level 30 cap before 9/23 keep going on quests and getting new gear . . . because the boss fights from level 30 - 40 are tough, really tough!
- Mystery Box -
A personal favorite of mine! Got tons of extra gold? Wish you could turn that gold into super awesome sweet weapons and armor? Well try your luck at the mystery box in Mustela's shop. This item costs gold and gives you a chance of getting awesome gear!
- More Quests! -
You wanted more quests and you got it! We've added in approximately 25 new quests and more are on the way!
- New Boss Fights -
Two new boss fights for you! I wont spoil what they are but make sure you are prepared when you get to the Level 25 and 30 Heroic Quests.
- Collect Coins from Furniture -
Here is a brand new feature we thought you guys might enjoy. Updates to it are still in the works but here's how it works. When you place a piece of furniture in your room a timer starts. While this timer is going the furniture is generating gold coins. After a while, your furniture will begin to glow and the coins generated by the piece of furniture will be ready to be collected. To claim your prize, go into your room and enter the furniture menu. From here, click on the furniture that is glowing to receive your gold coin rewards! It usually takes a couple quests before your furniture is ready to give you coins so be patient if you're not seeing it right away.
- New Indicators on Weapons and Armor -
This was one of your suggestions and it was a good one! We've added new icons to show you which weapons and armor are better than the ones you currently have equipped. It is still important to check the stats but this will help make it more clear what you should buy. Green up arrow indicates this item is better than the one you have equipped. Red down arrow indicates this item is worse than the one you have equipped. Yellow equal sign means it is equal to the one you have equipped.
- Voice Over for Heroic Quests -
We've added voice over for all heroic quests!
- Saving Issues Resolved -
The biggest technical issue we've seen has been the one regarding character data not saving properly to our servers. We've done a lot of work over the past 2 weeks and believe we've resolved the issue! I'll spare you the details but hopefully all the issues you guys have been having with saving is now resolved!
- Toy Items Issue Resolved -
There was an issue where purchasing new toy balls for your spirit animal did nothing. We've fixed that so when you buy an upgraded ball for your animal you will now see it replace the current one you have in your room.
- Faulty Bond Meter -
We fixed the issue where your bond meter would drop to zero randomly.
There are so many new features that we are planning to add in the coming months so stay tuned. Thank you again for all your help in making this game great, we couldn't have done this without you guys!
