Today we've launched our revamp for the Flight Rising Bestiary, which includes a refreshed style, expanded and compact views, and additional sorting options.



Bestiary: Revamped!

As we continue to work on revamping the old code of Flight Rising, we're happy to report that the Bestiary Revamp is now complete!


Tabs Are Helpful!

Tabs were a popular suggestion not just for our revamp to the Lair and addition of the Hibernal Den, but for the Bestiary, too! Keeping with that design philosophy, we've broken the Bestiary into three (3) distinct tabs:

  • Discovered: This includes all familiars that you currently own a copy of (Hoard/Vault/dragon), and/or those that you've advanced to a bond level of Awakened.
  • Undiscovered: This includes all familiars that you do not own a current copy of, and never reached awakened.
  • All: This tab is similar to the old Bestiary. It will show all familiars, regardless of ownership or bond level.


Filtering, Sorting, Searching


In addition to sorting familiars into tabs, we have also added the following options, available by clicking the magnifying glass button:

  • Filter for familiars that are located in a specific location, such as the Lair, Hibernal Den, Hoard, and Vault.
  • Filter by specific bond level.
  • Search by familiar name.
  • Sort alphabetically or by familiar item ID.


Display Modes and Clear Iconography

While filtering options are great, we wanted to provide players with more choices on how the familiar entries in the Bestiary are displayed, and make sure each of those entries was clearly branded with helpful icons that are recognizable without needing to read anything.

It is now possible to display up to sixty (60) familiars per page, and you can choose to compress the familiar entries in our new Compact Mode, which will hide all familiars' descriptions. If you are in Compact Mode, you can still expand a single familiar to read its description without changing the view mode back. If you'd prefer to view all familiars in compact mode by default every time, that is an option that you can change under account settings.

Each familiar entry is further equipped with three (3) icons, which become colorized if you meet their criteria:

  • The chest icon denotes familiars that you have a copy of within your Hoard or Vault.
  • The dragon wing icon denotes familiars that you have a copy of attached to a dragon in either your Lair or Hibernal Den.
  • bond-level-2.png The heart icon denotes the highest bond level you've achieved with that familiar.


Colorful Bestiaries

Bestiaries now have quite a bit more color! Here's how your familiars will now display:

  • Grayscale Familiar Art- Familiars that you do not own and have not achieved the Awakened bond level with.
  • Colorized Familiar Art - Familiars that you own (either in your Hoard/Vault or attached to dragons in your Lair/Hibernal Den).
  • Colorized Familiar Art - Familiars that have achieved the Awakened bond level, but are no longer within your Hoard/Vault or attached to dragons in your Lair/Hibernal Den.
  • Colorized Familiar Art + Background - Familiars that have both achieved the Awakened bond level and are either in your Hoard/Vault or attached to a dragon in your Lair/Hibernal Den.

Nice.

Something I’d like to see in this update though is being able to sort through undiscovered familiars within the auction house to make it a more easy process. While, yes, having a function for seeing only them in the bestiary will be helpful, I feel like sorting via the auction house would be a better solution, though they both are/were needed.

Yay! Second comment. That's really cool, the bestiary has been in need of a revamp for a long time.
