@Niomedes

It appears that this is not affecting all players. You are talking about this button that appears at the bottom of the page when you are filling out your initial half of the two-way trade right?

When you add items to the trade, does it stop being grayed out, but still cannot be clicked?

Mission to get a Deity to speak

Hi everyone. Thread's locked. Topics like this one aren't discussions, they're spam.

Rest assured, when one or more of the deities have something to say, they'll make sure they're heard.

I gotta pop the hype bubble, I'm so sorry.

The Wise Whiskers are just adorable, hilarious, and versatile. That's why they're the theme for this week.

But that being said, I can pass along the note that there's interest in more facial hair and bushy brows. (no promises!)

@Equive, I think there's been a misunderstanding. The Vial of Scattersight is not a part of today's eye type update.

Two new eye types are introduced alongside changes to the eye system.





Bright, Soft Eyes
Bright and Pastel are two new, natural eye types that can now appear on new hatchlings. These types are less common than rare eyes, but more common than goat, faceted, multi-gaze, or primal eye types.

Galore has a couple of clanbound gift vials of these beautiful eyes for each clan until May 10th at 9:00 server time. Be sure to pick them up from Galore before then!






Natural Eye Vials
As of this update, Eye Vials for the following natural eye types now have a chance to stock in the treasure marketplace: Uncommon, Unusual, Rare, Bright, Pastel, Goat, Faceted, Multi-Gaze, and Primal.


When we created the eye type system we intended for it to make breeding a little more exciting by altering the eyes.

Our main goal was to make the act of welcoming any new hatchling a bit more special. We thought that in the surprise cases where when hatchlings exhibited an eye type, it could create an opportunity for players to embark on a dragon project that they may have overlooked otherwise. What once might have been a dragon that would be immediately exalted or sold could open the door to a whole new aesthetic.

As we all know, the best of intentions sometimes don’t lead to the best outcome, especially in a game like ours. This system became frustrating for many players who yearned to use these new eyes types on their existing dragons, many of which they've been working a long time on or have sentimental meaning.

With the launch of the system, we released an event-exclusive item—the Vial of Scattersight—that we’d hoped would help replicate that randomized surprise for a few existing dragons. Looking back, we recognize that releasing that item was a mistake. Even though we thought we were providing a quirky item that could extend the eye types system backwards for a few dragons per player, they ended up exacerbating that frustration. We don’t plan to bring back the Vial of Scattersight or any item like it, so we’re moving forward with the following gameplay philosophy in mind:

In Flight Rising, if you put enough time into it, you can pretty much craft your perfect dragon. That should remain one of the most important aspects of our game.

With that said...

Going forward, we've implemented a hybrid approach: All hatched dragons will still have a chance of exhibiting natural eye types, and you will be able to purchase natural eye type vials on the Treasure Marketplace. (NOTE: The rarer a natural eye type is, the more expensive it will be.)

We hope that there’s a little something for everyone in this new design. It was important for us to retain the hatchling surprises of the old system, while giving players a path forward for their existing dragons (through enough effort, time, and treasure) who would otherwise have never been able to get them. These avenues combined, we think this expands our dragon customization options for all players and make Flight Rising a richer and more rewarding experience.

To give you some insight on the LuminaxCon apparel set, it was inspired by you, the community. We shouldn't have been surprised by the fact a game's player base would see a rampaging monstrosity of death and destruction and respond with "precious baby, must protect!" but we were.

One of our artists, further inspired by your enthusiasm for Luminax, created the items almost overnight and they were an instant hit internally. Many members of our team have been to conventions and your collective excitement for the undead imperial amalgam matched that same energy. This was our April Fool's Gift to you.

More than that, the LuminaxCon apparel set is our meta-joke and love letter to our community. Everyone was to and did receive one piece of the set, and the three pieces were added to the chests and Pinkerton. Doing so allows for all current, future, and returning players to acquire the full set through gameplay.

I hope this information helps to clarify our intent with the 2021 Marva gifts.

Hi all. Yup, it's another thread lock.

The LuminaxCon apparel set is currently and will continue to remain available to all players through regular feature gameplay (chests, Pinkerton), and is not limited to the 2021 Marva bags.

why have they been getting locked?

Because they have a tendency to head in a negative direction, with players trading veiled and not-so-veiled insults about the people who feel differently than them on this subject. It's happened across multiple threads, it's actually against the Rules & Policies, and it's generally unpleasant for everyone.

I’m here to complain about the lanyards which I assume everyone is doing bc seriously that is ABSOLUTELY uncool. there is nothing fun about getting to open your bag and realizing oops, you picked the wrong one! Your item is 1. not unique 2. barely noticeable 3. distinctly less impactful than the other two! It honestly feels like you’re mocking me, or that April Fools was intended to be a gachapon this year instead of a random item fun time.

I don’t know what I want, staff. I don’t know whether I want the lanyards updated, removed...I really don’t know. But at the current time it really feels like you made something that you knew was going to be worthless compared to the others, and you just...put it out anyway. Because you wanted to tell people that if they have bad luck they should just deal? Because some people arbitrarily should get rewards, and not others? Great. Fantastic. If I wanted that I would’ve played something like Genshin Impact.

I’m extremely put off by this. Thanks for making this game fun for everyone

Hello @RheoTastic! Thank you for your feedback! The full LuminaxCon apparel set is not limited to the Overflowing gift bags. All three items are also available through chests and players have a chance at collecting the items from Pinkerton, too. I hope this information helps to allay some of your concerns.
