Where is the Map it’s been two years.

I feel so bad for the staff. This was a great announcement for them, the 5th anniversary for their own game. I hope they don't remember the 5th anniversary as a sour day.
To this day the eyepocalypse is known as the most controversial topic on site.
Then mass deleted any opposition to the scattersights retirement.
[color=purple]After waiting so long for the map, I was shocked to see that we were given a preview only a month before the hoard/vault revamp comes out. A big fear of mine is that the map update isn't going to come out until all/most of the BotE lore has been wrapped up, since those have been doing various things to parts of the landscape. With how slowly official lore is released, we might not see it for a long time still. [emoji=guardian sad size=1] I would be over the moon if I was prove wrong though.

Map shmap, as someone w/an awfully messy hoard, I'm delighted for the update.

Personally I value the site functionality improvements far more, though that doesn't mean I couldn't care less about the visuals.

The map update likely required a huge amount of new art, which is why it's taking so much longer. I think the hoard/vault is overall much simpler, so they were able to complete it faster.

[/quote] I’m almost 99% sure it’s going to be coming with the next lore event at this point. That or it’ll come with all new flight banners and art and quite possibly the nest update as well... but really it’s been two whole years and I’m really disappointed it’s not here yet when the hoard and vault had a dev update not long ago but now it’s almost here. But a month between a preview of the hoard and vault and its release compared to two whole years is quite a huge difference.

NOTN is a second festival for shadow and nothing will change my mind.

Map will be cool when it gets here but hoard revamp is QoL improvement and I live for that. The amount of valuable things I've converted or hoard sold because I have over 40+ pages of stuff in some categories is insane. If I can finally sort through my stuff I will be beside myself.

@Mystiek
I can only hope it will be out with the next lore event, whenever that might be! At this point I'd just be happy if it was mentioned again in another dev update. Maybe they could even give us a second sneak peek, just to sate us a little longer.

Not that I'm unhappy with the hoard/vault update. I'm actually really looking forward to it. But I yearn for the map.

The hoard / vault is mostly code with very minimal ui assets needing to be made from scratch. And the preview we got of it looked pretty close to finished.

I'm glad we'r getting it so soon after the tease. Waiting for QoL updates tends to be harder to do than waiting for bigger updates.


I don't expect to see the map update for another 2-3 years at least. If you do the math it demands at least 88-99 different things drawn and that's assuming they only give us the bare minimum of content.
- 11 flight territories, 4 sub regions per territory= 44 locations to draw (each location needs trees, rocks, various small details)
- 44 lair locations minimum. (The little location icons we all have on our profile pages)
- possibly new profile banners. another 11 new assets.

For the map update I'll gladly treat it as longer wait = higher quality when we get it.

It's been answered a few times in this thread already, but the World Map is a gargantuan art project, and it is absolutely still in progress (just approved some concepts for the Sea of a Thousand Currents a couple weeks ago, as a matter of fact).

That being said, we're actively evaluating and shifting priorities as a team to bring features and revamps that will either help or satisfy the largest collection of players as possible. The World Map is nice and we're super stoked about it, but it's not as integral as the game's inventory systems.

Every single one of you uses the Hoard on a daily basis, so we're putting a lot of effort into getting that out so that everyone can make use of the new quality of life changes it will bring.
