Calling All Mods!

The development team is looking for a few experienced, friendly, knowledgeable Flight Rising players to take up a forum vista and help out the FR community. These are volunteer positions, and duties would include answering questions, moving threads to appropriate sub-forums, locking duplicate threads, and reporting issues to the administration and moderator team. Moderators must possess an extremely cool-headed objective demeanor, protect the interests and concerns of all players, and overall enjoy being a community figure and role model.



If you think that this type of role would suit you, please send an e-mail to admin@flightrising.com with the subject "Moderator Application: Username" and contain the following information in your message body:

Required Info:
  • Flight Rising Username
  • Flight Rising Email Address
  • # Of Years with familiarity of pet sites, forum moderation, or both
  • Flight Rising forum you think you'd be best suited to
  • You must be over 18.

  • Links to applicable threads from other pet sites in which you participated in a moderation/mentor/helpful role
  • Any other experience/skills that may be relevant



New Familiars

New critters (sponsored by Kickstarter Backer Larthan) have been added to the Treasure Marketplace. You'll be able to adopt the...uh... "lovable" Salve Kamaitachi, Scythe Kamaitachi and Sickle Kamaitachi. We've also heard rumblings that they've been seen darting in and out of reed clusters in an undiscovered location...


Just don't get too close. They literally have BLADES INSTEAD OF PAWS.



Fairgrounds Bonus Treasure

We have been crunching some numbers on Fairgrounds treasure output for the past few days, and have made the following changes to bring bonus treasure amounts in-line with one another:
  • Runestones of the Arcanist has had its bonus treasure output increased by 40%
  • Runestones of the Arcanist's levels beyond 13 have had their time bonuses increased to account for the lower starting time.
  • Jigsaw (Medium) has had its bonus treasure output increased by 40%
  • Jigsaw (Hard) has had its bonus treasure output increased by 20%



Additional Adjustments
  • A bug that would rarely add an extra digit to players' Runestones of the Arcanist scores has been fixed.
  • A bug that would duplicate the High Scores display for Runestones of the Arcanist has been fixed.
  • The drifting mechanism for Jigsaw pieces has been adjusted to be more manageable.
  • Based on player feedback (thank you!), we are currently dedicating development time to significantly increasing the play space for Jigsaw. While this may change, our current plan is to move the left-side navigation menu to display along the top of the page, and stretch the Jigsaw board to encompass the entire width of the site's live area. We do not have an ETA just yet on this renovation, but it is absolutely in the works.
  • Immaculate tablet drop rates in the coliseum have been buffed for the remainder of the holiday.
  • The 'Like' button on forum posts is once again functional.

Thank you all for being an amazing community -- we hope you have a great day!

Oh those familiars are awesome looking I think I need those.

And the treasure boosts are awesome, thank you. I can't wait for the space adjustments as well.

Thanks so much for the updates! Love those new familiars, and I'm psyched about the increase in the bonus treasure. XD My little sister has been annoyed with the drifting mechanism from the Jigsaw, so hopefully with the adjustment it would be better for her.

You guys are awesome <3 As much as I would like to go for the mod role, I&#039;m afraid that school is going to hinder me from that. Good luck to the applicants!
