Sunday is here! But not just any Sunday… On this particular day of the sun a very special event takes place. The forces of light and dark have arrived on this plane, bringing their eternal struggle with them! Darkness beckons you ever closer, while light commands attention with brilliant radiance. Which calling will you heed?
Like the forces they channel, light and dark souls are inextricably linked. As the light shines brighter, the shadow it casts becomes ever darker and focused. In this way, light and dark creatures have push and pull embedded into their very nature. As more light type creatures are active, dark type creatures become stronger and light becomes weaker. And as more dark type creatures become active, light type creatures become stronger. The ebb and flow of power begins!
To facilitate this new mechanic power augmentation has been introduced and added to the stats output of creatures. For light and dark creatures this value will constantly be in flux as players in the game are actively using the new types. Power Augmentation affects all aspects of spell casting and attacking, including combat, healing, and mental spells. A positive power augmentation greatly aids your creature, while a negative power augmentation hinders it.
On top of power augmentation, light and dark creatures have another very special quality. Each individual creature specializes in a particular stat, and can either cast immense buffs (Light type creatures) or fearsome debuffs (Dark type creatures). This means that two light type, or two dark type, creatures using the same spells can have completely different effects! The buff/debuff type is dependent on the creature the soul is bonded with, and can be one of any of the eight stat types. One dark creature may have a strong attack debuff effect, while another might have a crafting debuff.
In order to craft these new souls, players will need either 1 Sunpearl or 1 Moonpearl (which can be obtained from battling wild creatures or giants), a level 10 creature, and 500 energy (375 with a gold membership).
Players will now notice that the “Special(+)” and “Special(-)” elemental affinity type creatures they have been catching during the birthday week have become Light and Dark type affinities, respectively. When matching an elemental affinity to a soul, light and dark type creatures are granted fierce new eye types which embody their element. These eyes are not available anywhere else, and cannot be obtained any other way.
There’s a new necessity pack (v4.041) available behind the shop on Krafties Island, or players can wear an older version of the creature attachment to have it delivered automatically. This new pack includes the changes for power augmentation, as well as a few minor internal changes to the creature attachment.
Here at Krafties we’re always working hard to bring you new content and fun! We hope you’ve enjoyed the birthday week so far, and can’t wait to see all of the cool new light and dark creatures out and about. There’s lots more to come, and even more after that! Have fun!!!
