What’s that shiny door right by Monsterwood? It’s the new Smuggler’s Cave!
This new feature will allow players to get gems at a discounted price for a limited time. This purchase is totally optional, but in case you’re interested, this is how it works:
Every time you carry out your usual actions around the game, Captain Pigrate, aka the Smuggler, gathers some Gems to hide them inside his Cave. Whenever he collects enough, he’ll open the Cave and offer you a deal. His prices are amazing!
Filling up the savings bar: Some actions like spending Gems, making purchases, breeding, crafting, ranking up, and fighting will fill your Gem savings bar. The more you fill the bar up, the better the deal the Smuggler will offer you!
Activate the Smuggler’s Cave: Once you’ve filled the bar, the Smuggler will be ready to open his Cave for you.
Get the best deal: The Smuggler’s prices are lower than the ones in your usual Shop, but he’s pretty secretive so you’ll have a limited time to take the offer!
And start again: After you buy the contents of the Smuggler’s Cave or time runs out, the savings bar will go back to zero. Time to fill it up again!
Please note that the gems that are kept in the Smuggler’s Cave are always EXTRA GEMS and you’ll get the same gems and rewards you’d get even if the Cave didn’t exist. Captain Pigrate will not steal your hard-earned gems, he will just offer you even more as a reward for your work. He may be a smuggler, but never a thief!
This new feature will be available to everyone in the very near future, but for now, it’s being tested in a group of players to make sure everything’s A-Okay. If you are not seeing it yet, don’t worry, it’s coming your way.
What do you think of Captain Pigrate? We all really love his design, kudos to our Art Department! They’re amazing!
