Hi @Nelsothy

Thanks for your report, it looks like this is probably a result of accidentally double tapping the button to claim the feat, so the 2nd tap gets an error message because it was already claimed from the 1st tap. We are working on making this situation smoother.

Fiona's Fantastic Familiars

Fiona and her colorful menagerie have settled into the Trading Post, and she needs all the help she can get. Make friends with hundreds of familiars and complete tasks to earn rewards.




(NOTE: Much of this information was available in our last Developer Update)

Fiona's Fantastic Familiars

The newest neighbor in the Trading Post, Fiona, is an overconfident caregiver. She's befriended just about every familiar there is, but found herself maybe just a little bit in over her head caring for their every need. That's where you come in! Stop by and lend a claw by visiting with her feisty flock by participating in two types of activities: Feats & Flattery.

prev_wouldyoujustlookatallthesecuties.png


Feats

Feats are familiar-themed tasks that focus on the act of reaching bonding level milestones with certain familiars to earn a special reward. Once the required milestones have been reached Fiona will allow you to claim a prize, which will generally consist of treasure rewards or in some cases, a special recolored version of the familiar type in the Feat.

prev_recoloredfamiliarexamples.png


Feats will have varying degrees of difficulty (they may not all require the familiars to be Awakened or they may require progress with a lot more familiars) and typically grant rewards that correspond to how tough they are to complete.

With today's launch, we have a number of feats available, and we plan to expand them over time to provide many possible ways of earning rewards.


Flattery

When you visit the Flattery page each day, you'll be met with eight random familiars, but the feature will generally prioritize familiars that you don't own, are not Awakened, or a combination of the two. While these familiars belong to Fiona, they share the bond level progress you have earned with yours. Because she's got so many to tend to, she's more than happy to have your assistance in providing some attention to them.

What makes this page interesting is that interacting with these familiars performs the same function as bonding with them on a dragon's profile... whether or not you actually own the familiar or have it paired to a dragon in your lair! This might be a little confusing at first, so we'll break it down a bit further:
  • If a familiar is one you currently own and have paired to a dragon, interacting with it here will perform the normal bond function as if you had done it from the paired dragon's profile.
  • If a familiar is one you currently don't own, interacting with it here will perform a normal bond function, granting you bond level progress for that familiar family without needing to have the item at all. If you were to obtain the familiar as an item later, that progress would be retained.
As an added bonus: If a familiar on this page is one you currently own and have paired to a dragon, Fiona will grant you double the normal treasure when you interact with it! Think of it kind of like the daily Exalt Bonus, but for familiars!

prev_poodlemithbond.png


The goal of the Flattery page is to allow more of our community the ability to incrementally increase their bond level with familiars they may not have the ability to acquire (either through time investment, treasure, gems, or familiar exclusivity/retirement). This serves a double purpose: allowing everyone to make more progress toward feats that may feature those missing familiars, and providing another method of "filling out" the Bestiary.

NOTE: The act of interacting with familiars you don't own at Fiona's Fantastic Familiars will not give you the corresponding familiar item, and it will not fulfill the criteria necessary to give the familiar a special background in the Bestiary once you have reached the Awakened bond level with it. In order to earn the special background, you will still need to both achieve its Awakened bond level and to somehow acquire/have the familiar item.

Correct. Just the items listed will cycle.

will this mean the Frost Delver / Stone Borer will be showing up even less?

I imagine their spawn rate wouldn't have changed

Correct. The boss type familiars have their own chance to show up and are not affected by enemies that are placed into the regular encounter pool. Your chance at Frost Delver and Stone Borer should remain the same.

It is corrected, thank you. It may take up to an hour for our site's tooltip cache to catch up with the correction.

Also, with the flamingo and crane familiars, that's the end of the new content for this update. I'll be updating the post to no longer be a live update and doing some back end housekeeping, but that's it!

This is a great thread.

(casual general reminder: You can build people up without tearing someone else down. Please remember the winners are your fellow players. Even if it isn't meant to have malicious intent, calling out winning skins as disappointing can be seen and felt as calling out the artist. The thread's focus is positivity and support.

My biggest issue with the familiar one is that is she going to REMOVE our ability to GET the items we would otherwise be due?

Like if I'm almost at max loyalty, and click on her version of that familiar, do I LOSE MY GOLD CHEST?!

Because that's a MASSIVE NOPE.

I like the idea, but I hope we aren't risking chests.

She’s not removing your ability to get chests. She’s just not going to give you more chests after awakened. :) Bond away!

All right, folks. Posts have been removed in order to get the thread back on track.

Fiona is trans. We have rules about discrimination. It is not necessary or warranted to invalidate, dismiss, or otherwise comment in a manner discriminatory towards gender identity. Let people be happy.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

@aeonium and @Takato, thank you for your opinion.

Generally speaking, it's clear from this thread alone that Fiona means a great deal to many members of our community. We ask everyone to please respect that and let people be happy.

Regarding physical traits and "deformities", I should also remind everyone about our rules on discrimination, which can be found here.

How are the unlockable familiar recolors going to act? Are they going to act like whole new familiars or like a skin that you toggle on or off? (I think I would prefer the former)

Also:
Are the familiars that show up in Fiona's flattery going to be randomly generated? If so that would be extra exciting!
For the first question, the one in the example image has a separate name, so it's almost certainly a different item. We have lots of familiar recolors already, like the various petal geckos or basilisks.

For the second, probably? It'd be easier than manually selecting them every day. And it's already been confirmed that KS/beta familiars can show up in there!
  1. When we say "recolored" we mean a new familiar item that shares the same base artwork (just different colors).
  2. Yes, they will be randomly generated once per day.

I really like the idea of more recolors, but my one concern with Fiona is - will she reward players who've already achieved Awakened with everything, or will some of her quests be unobtainable? Like if a quest is to get Inquisitive with a Windcarve Bladedancer and I already have Loyal, is that an auto-complete or am I unable to do that quest?

@Laluzi

I answered this earlier in the thread, but the scenario you described would allow you to auto-complete any feats you already meet the requisites for.

This is very exciting. :)

I have a question. When you reach the flattery familiar's bonding tiers, will you get the associated chest for the tier along with the treasure, or is that just for the personal bonding?

@Kuikka

Bonding with a familiar that appears on Fiona's Flattery page performs the exact same function as would occur on a dragon's profile. That means if the act of bonding would result in a level-up and a chest, you would get that as normal.

How will this work if the familiars of these feats are already awakened pre this feature coming out? Most of my familiars are already awakened so i wondered how it works.

@Yewwily

If you've already met the requirements for the feat(s), you would simply be able to complete them right away and collect your reward.
