We've broken ground! Our newest Trading Post activity, Arlo's Ancient Artifacts is now live. You can now begin helping Arlo the Obelisk dig for new and exciting discoveries!



Much of the information in this post was made available in our earlier Dev Update about the feature, just in case it reads as redundant.


Arlo's Ancient Artifacts

The incredible findings of the Dustcarve Dig have spurred new interest in archaeology throughout Sornieth! Clans everywhere are beginning to break ground and aid the Dragonhome Preservation Guild in the search for treasures and trinkets.

Arlo, one of several obelisk dragons that have taken up this pursuit, needs your clan's help in the myriad digsites he oversees across the realm. In this new Trading Post activity, you can muster resources and use them to dig in sites and plots to find precious artifacts. You can also share your research with your friends.


Mustering Resources

Once per day, you are able to Muster Resources. This action adds a randomized assortment of tools to your archaeological project. Pickaxes, magnifying glasses, and research notes can be procured, and each has a special purpose towards uncovering artifacts in digsites. Mustering Resources also rewards experience.



Digsites

Digsites are thematic collections of tiled plots that, once uncovered, will yield items and experience points.

Much like Baldwin's Bubbling Brew, your archaeology experience dictates what digsites your clan is able to work on, and thusly, what rewards and items you can uncover. Although the feature debuts today with only one available digsite, Thunder Lizards, you can expect more sites to open up as part of our future content updates. NOTE: Future digsites will require a minimum archaeology level in order to access and work on them.

Items available through the Thunder Lizards dig site include:






Get to Work

Within a digsite, you'll be shown an assortment of different sized plots, which all have a number of dirt tiles to be uncovered. In order to yield an artifact reward, you must uncover all of the tiles within a plot. Uncovering tiles is made possible by the resources you've mustered, and any research that has been shared with you by your friends.

Types of Work Orders

There are two types of digging actions ("work orders") you can perform with the tools you collect using Muster Resources.
  • Rugged Work: Performing this action consumes one pickaxe from your resources and will begin a work order on multiple random tiles, selected from any available plots. Using a pickaxe also rewards experience.
  • Precise Work: Performing this action consumes one (1) magnifying glass from your resources and will allow you to specifically choose a plot within the current digsite to work on. One (1) random tile in the plot will be worked. Using a magnifying glass also rewards experience.

After some time has passed, your work orders will complete and you can clear the tiles away—revealing a bit of the artifact(s) beneath!

Sharing Research

In addition to tools, you can procure research notes from your field team. And in the spirit of collaboration, these notes are intended for you to share with your fellow players! You can share research notes in several ways:
  • Assist a Friend: You can send up to three (3) research notes to a player on your friends list. The notes will appear as worked tiles randomly dispersed on their eligible plots, across all their unlocked digsites. Research note recipients can have no more than nine (9) tiles unlocked by research notes at a time. They must uncover those tiles to receive more. Assist a Friend also rewards experience.
  • Share with Colleagues: You can send up to three (3) research notes to random active players on your friends list. Each randomly chosen player will receive one (1) note. The notes will appear as worked tiles randomly dispersed on their eligible plots, across all their unlocked digsites. Share with Colleagues also rewards experience.
  • Donate to the Guild: For those that don't care to share their notes or prefer solo play, you can relinquish 8 notes to the Dragon Home Preservation Guild in exchange for additional digging tools. This is a change we've made based on player feedback from the earlier Dev Update post previewing this feature.



We're excited to finally share this new feature with our community, and excited to see what everyone digs up!

FAQ

We will be adding as many answers to community questions within this part of the post. Check back periodically!



Why is my Friends List empty or missing someone when I go to share my research notes?

In order to be able to share your research notes, they must:
  • Have used Arlo's Ancient Artifacts at least once.
  • Be an active player.
  • Have not already reached their research notes limit.

---

What is the research notes limit?

Once you've 9 tiles unlocked from research notes sent by your friends, you must uncover those tiles to receive more research help from others.

---

Are plots only able to be completed once?

Once you complete a plot and collect it it can be completed again and again. You receive a little ribbon for each plot you complete at least once!

---

Do resources reset at rollover?

Resources (pickaxe/magnifying glass/research notes) do not reset to zero at rollover. You can muster again after rollover.

---

Is there a cap on stored resources?

The cap for resources is so high, it's effectively uncapped. You don't need to worry about maxing out your stored resources in the event you're only able to muster resources for a period of time.
