Shroud of the Avatar – Update of the Avatar #265
Greetings Friends! Not much this week, but I am excited that the devs finally started to highlight the Heraldry items. As a former member of the community organization that helped design and create player coat of arms as well as help make some of the graphic files that helped players come up with ideas, this makes me happy to know the heraldric items will still be in the game. Let’s jump right into it, with what we have for you in this week’s edition of Update of the Avatar:
The Making of The Lost Vale
“The Lost Vale” is a new adventure area (originally promised during the Kickstarter campaign) that is accessible only during special astronomical alignments. Note this is not to be confused with the Hidden Vale which is an entire island of both adventuring areas and towns that is accessible at all times.
Heraldry Items Revealed
In Release 51 we have begun the work to get Heraldry (aka Custom Family Crest) working in the game. Stay tuned for more information about how you will be able to connect your personal Heraldry Blazon to your account. As part of that we are building the items that the heraldry blazons will appear on including Tabard Armor (Cloth, Chain, Leather, Plate), Shields, and Banners. Each week we will be showing off the latest items we have created for Heraldry. Note that where you see the Lord British silver serpent on these items is where your blazon would appear, if no blazon is selected this would appear blank.
Each item will come as a fully usable item with an eternal pattern embedded inside that can be salvaged to be applied to other items. The eternal pattern is what is linked to the heraldry blazon and what determines what blazon is displayed.
