December 1st will mark an occasion with numerous newness! Of these will be a new feature set where you'll be able to send consumable gifts to your coven and create a list of favorite friends! That's not all. We've also got a new event type coming for you that brings along it's own new feature. Read on to learn all the details!
You can gift to any vampire in your coven by visiting their profile page, where a new button will be present labeled Send Gift. Pressing this will give you a choice set of consumables to send. These choices will appear in a drop down menu. Just touch the menu to see everything available to send.
Your first choice will always be Free Surprise Gift. Selecting this will send a random consumable type to them and costs you nothing. Free Surprise Gifts will be limited to 3 gifts throughout a 24hr period. Note that this limit will be raised to 5 gifts during events!
Your second gifting choice will be a list of consumable items which are sent from your inventory to your friend's inventory. Note that you'll only be sending x1 no matter how many you have. Also note that you must have the consumables in your inventory for them to appear on the list, and you'll be deducted that consumable after you gift it.
Once you've selected your gift, just hit the Send button and off it goes!
Keep your eyes peeled! All gifts from coven will be received via your Events feed, on your Home screen. Just click the text in the feed and the gift has been claimed. It's so easy!
We know some of your coven lists are miles long! Favored Vampire is a way to create a favorites list of all your best coven-mates to make for easier, faster access to their profiles. You'll be able to mark your favorites on your Coven screen by tapping the Star symbol near their name. Doing this will light up the star and instantly add them to your favorites.
You can then access your list of Favored Vampire on your personal profile screen, using the button labeled Favorites.
You can remove anyone from your favorites by returning to your coven list and tapping the star next to their name. Doing this will darken the star and remove that person from your Favored Vampire list.
If for any reason you end up blocking one of your favored vampire, a two-way favorites removal will happen. They'll be removed from your list and you'll be removed from theirs.
New Event Type
We'll have a new 48hr event type coming on Nov 30 - Dec 2, called Anarchy. During Anarchy everyone in the Rising will be placed on the same team, fighting against one another to accrue points to reach a specific point-goal. As you accrue points toward your goal, you'll also achieve point benchmarks that will unlock rewards for everyone on the rising. As each benchmark is hit, your rewards will get better and better, until you reach your goal—which will be the best!
We'll have all the details for this and more on your VDR+ page as we get closer to the event!
As well as being a new style of event, Anarchy will bring to you two new things! First, you'll have a score modifier, called Anarchos, that will add a bonus +1 to your points. Second, this score modifier will also be a collectable item that you can stack up as you play. But what will you do with this stack of Anarchos? Make it into badass Powers, Favor Points, or Sparring Points... using Fusion (crafting), of course!
Anarchy will also bring a new crafting feature, called Fusion, where the score modifiers you'll collect will be able to be fused into awesome new powers! You'll be able to access Fusion via a new button on your Home screen.
For now, Fusion will be a feature that only applies to events. This means that the more of the items you collect during the event the more powers you can make. You can even Fuse them while you play!
In order to fuse a power, first visit the Fusion page. There you'll see a your goal item along with the required recipe. Once you have the required amount, you tap the Fuse! button and it's all yours!
CSD Article Updates
We'll soon have the Community Support Desk's LEARN section updated with all of this information broken up into easy to read sections so you can drop by any time to learn how it all works.
That's it from us for now. Thanks for dropping in. Be sure to let your coven know about this announcement and keep your eyes peeled for ingame announcements on the Anarchy event!
Fight Hard, Play Safe, and we'll be back to bite you soon!
