PM Update on Item Release

  • Hey fellow combatants


    For the future we plan to provide more frequent and concrete updates by commenting on a specific and current topic per announcement, sometimes these will also be territory specific. This first update is on how we release items.


    Firstly, one of our aims is to increase the attractiveness of our promotions by increasing the variety of sales, (unique) Alchemy tables and so on. Shouldn’t the Game Sage and Wish Alchemy feel more like a special and exclusive event?


    We do not plan to reinvent the wheel, but we do want to try out new and possibly unexpected things. To achieve this, we need to adjust specific parts of our promotions. Further changes can always happen, as development never stops.


    Whatever happens though, Sprite Alchemy will always remain a very important part of … well simply everything.


    Here we go



    Runway Items


    You will most likely have noticed that we have switched to a regular rotation of Runway items. We believe this is preferable to a complete change out of the blue as it brings life to the Runway but also makes it more predictable.


    • commonly, items will be changed per patch
    • usually an item will be part of the Runway for four months
    • items that appeared in the NEW category, will be shifted to the specific costume category instead of being removed. This means, these items will be part of the Runway for more eight months



    General Costume and Mount Release


    We have changed the way we release items. Most of the time the release of an item will follow the schedule below, though we will make exceptions e. g. for special items or occasions.


    Let’s call it “ The Four Stages of Item Release”.


    Stage 1


    An item is usually released in a Loyalty Program. Sometimes you may spot a stray item being released in a High Alchemy, Loot Wheel or even Mystery Box, as done recently with the Melodic and Tuned Nuclei.


    Stage 2


    For the following month, after the release promotion in Stage 1 has ended, the item is blocked for the M-Alch. However, the item can reappear in a special promotion.


    Stage 3


    For roughly one month regular items are now exclusively available to the Game Sage and Wish Alchemy.


    Stage 4


    Any regular item can appear in any Alchemy.

    Be aware that we will continue to adjust what needs to be adjusted. We will also come up with new ideas that may not always be great. Feel free to leave your constructive feedback as a comment below.

    As a final note, rest assured we have many more topics than sales and promotions on our list. We have other projects planned or on-going and we also met up with X-Legend just last week. You can look forward to more updates on current in-game issues, events, technical improvements and more.
