Competition for the Heart of the Forest

Competition for the Heart of the Forest

Written by Nightingale

The Heart of the Forest is the most prosperous area on the island. The Druids have long inhabited the area and use it as training grounds for members of their faction. They believe that a close connection with the land enhances their magic. The forest is rich in medicinal plants and the pools have a deep magic about them. Recently the Geological Exploration Service, desiring to seek out rare and valuable minerals, are making their way into the forest. They are leaving a wake of destruction behind them. The Unicorns have always been defenders of the forest, but only the most courages of them can withstand the strong dragons that the Geological Exploration Service uses to clear land and extract resources.

Who are you going to help? There are 7 days for the competitors to hire enough participant pets. If you would like to participate in this event, go to Quests tab: Druids are looking for the brave Unicorns while the Geological Services need strong Dragons.

The winning species will get a bonus: Dragons will spend less energy when entering island portals while Unicorns will get an increase of their maximum energy for one week.

Competition for the revealed rock shelter: Dragons won!

The University thanks Beastlords for help! To show their gratitude, the University biologists promised to help with the genetics research for one week.

The Gryphons sent by the Conclave of Warlocks have failed the task with a bang. The cave creatures evolved in darkness and silence and developed extremely perceptive senses and very fast response mechanisms making impossible to sneak past them. The graceful Gryphons turned out to be clumsy and slow for the cave predators. But the same environment factors made these cavern creatures very cautious and timid: this behaviour pattern was necessary to survive and thrive in the hostile biotope. The dragons easily scared off  the aggressive cave inhabitants along with several Gryphons that were hesitatingly hanging around the cave entrance, and cleared the way for the researchers from the University.

201 Dragons and 106 Gryphons were sent to investigate the rock shelter.

Dragons have won and got cheaper genetics research for one week!

How this bonus works: when researching genes one by one, you have a 50% chance to discover the gene without paying vermillion. When researching genes in a bulk, only half of the vermillion cost will be deducted from you. The cost in silver is decreased to 50 per gene.

Competition for the newly revealed rock shelter

Written by drak

The waves of the sea covering our planet have been eroding the shores of our home island since the great floods, changing the coastline and undercutting cliffs. Recently, one of the overhangs collapsed into the sea, revealing a large rock shelter which must have been an undiscovered cavern before.

What is most interesting about the opening is that it holds a whole new biotope populated by animals and fungi not seen anywhere else. As the microclimate of the cave has suddenly changed with its exposition to sun and external conditions all the new organisms will probably soon get displaced by others and vanish so the University wants to take this opportunity and start studies on them as soon as possible. Hovewer, the new discovery has also attracted attention of the Conclave of Warlocks. One of the unique species is a brightly glowing cave mushroom which the warlocks see as a potential source of magic power and are strongly determined to take possession of.

The rock shelter location makes it inaccesible from the ground so both, the University and the Conclave of Warlocks, need flying creatures to get there. The University wants to ask help from Dragons which can scare off any creatures or humans away from the opening while the scientists are doing their research. The Conclave of Warlocks wants to use graceful Gryphons that will be able to avoid the guards and quickly collect the mysterious mushrooms.

There is not much time left before the biotope disappears - first come, first served. The University is looking for Dragons with Fearsome Look while Warlocks ask for Gryphons with Gracefulness. The Beastlords have 7 days to provide them with desired creatures. Who are you going to help?

If you would like to participate in this event, go to Quests tab.

The winning species will get 50% cheaper genetics research for one week!

How this bonus works: when researching genes one by one, you have a 50% chance to discover the gene without paying vermillion. When researching genes in a bulk, only half of the vermillion cost will be deducted from you. The cost in silver is decreased to 50 per gene.

Tactic Balance Update

The testing of the tactics showed that some maneuvers are a bit overpowered and allow to create unbeatable combination. To make the tactic battles more balanced, the following changes will be introduced in 3 days (October 6th):

  1. Leadership gets cap of 5 points maximum.
  2. A pet can have only one elemental attack maneuver at the same time. 
  3. 100+ stats bonus adds 1 point to elemental maneuvers so they will score 4 points instead of 3.

Please update your tactic combinations. The system will update the combination with 2 elemental attacks per pet automatically in case if players won't change them manually before this update.


Tactic balance update is live. Extra elemental attacks were swapped automatically to the available basic maneuvers both in pet profiles and on the current Battlefield rolls.

Guild Competition Event - Pumas won!

The Guild of Miners thanks Beastlords for help! This time they've managed to win the tender for the development of the Selenium deposit. To show their appreciation, Miners used a part of the developed Selenium for producing a mixture which reduces fatigability and shared it with the species that helped them to win.

625 Cockatrices and 812 Pumas were sent to help the Guilds.

Pumas have won the competiton and will regenerate energy twice as fast for the next 7 days.


Downtime

Our data center was experiencing tech problems and BeastKeeper was unavailable for 3 hours (22:00 - 1:00 EEST).

The server time was wrong for 4 hours after the site went up, so there's a 4-hour mistiming for all the time-bound features (auctions, pregnancy, childhood, taming, pet catching etc.). We resetted the energy recovery timer for all pets to synchronize it with the actual time.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you for understanding,
BeastKeeper Team

Tactics Logic Contest

We have a small tactics-related contest started. The prizes are 5 x Mutagen and 1 x Squad Energy Pack and maybe even more premium items for those who will show their tactics genius and provide the correct solution for the tactic problem.

BeastKeeper News #8

Guild Competition Event - Revanche

The Mechanicians Guild has developed the unique Selenium mine with the help of Rocs for several years and now the mine is exhausted. The State Portal Service geologists found another vein that lies deep below the exhausted one. The central problem that they are facing is how to reach there to continue development. A new tender is announced to find a technology to break the way through the hard rock and reach the deposit of the indispensable Selenium.

The Miners offer to use the agility and ability to see in the darkness of Pumas. The hard rock is pierced with a high number of narrow twisting channels of natural origin. Pumas can explore these channels and find the easy way to the lower deposits.
The Mechanicians think that the fastest method to make a way to the deposits is to use the acid of Cockatrices and simply dissolve the rock.

Both approaches require some extraordinary efforts from pets. Pumas must be extremely agile to find their way through insidious and dangerous channels, and Cockatrices must show high endurance to stand such body burden and produce enough acid solution.

Who are you going to help? There are 7 days for the competitors to hire enough participant pets. If you would like to participate in this event, go to Quests tab: Miners are looking for the agile Pumas while Mechanicians need the tough Cockatrices.

The winner will be the Guild which gets the better support of the Beastlords.  The winning pet species will regenerate energy twice as fast for one week!

Battlefield Quests and new levels of the buildings in your Manor

The opened portal allowed Beastlords to trade with the dwellers of Io. They are interested in exchanging some of their unique resources and blueprints into  common Europa materials.

These alien materials and knowledge allow to improve some of the technologies (sometimes in quite strange ways) that are used on Europa right now. Here's what you can build using the resources from Io:

  1. Stable (lvl 5)
  2. Warehouse (lvl 6)
  3. Townhall (lvl 5)
  4. Astrologist (lvl 4)
  5. Military Academy (lvl 3)

You must reach the portal zone to deliver the goods and perform an exchange. You can fulfill one battlefield quest per day. Astrologist may help you to trade your goods for a certain item but his powers here are twice as less because of the distance between the moons.

Miscellaneous Updates

  1. A new Theory of Chaos Tactics has been added. It acts just like the Maneuvers tactics but neutralizes all the other tactics used in the battle if you rolled more Movement maneuvers than your opponent.
  2. Battle Arena is redesigned to show the image of your opponents and their Genetic Power and Degeneration.
  3. Pets with manual battle applications will be automatically removed from Arena in 24 hours.
  4. The characteristics requirements for high-level buildings are increased.
  5. After the first wave of Symurghs have moved to Europe, the best individuals are taking a close look at the Beastlords and choosing who they are willing to join. The more battles have you won while defending the portal, the better Symurgh will join you. Every battle adds 15% probability to get the positive and avoid the negative genes (but no more than 50% in total). Also the number of battle wins affect received rating points (3 points for every victory, basic value is is 3 points) and silver (1000 for every battle win, basic value is 4000).

BeastKeeper News #7

New building - Astrologist

A young enigmatic man has come to your land trying to avoid the social discontent. He looks for a place to stay and work and he is ready to pay you with his talent if you will give him a shelter and provide with instruments.

Astrologist allows you to focus on collecting a specific resource or finding a certain item. He increases the chances of finding the chosen object by 3, 4 and 5 times depending on the building level. You can buy the blueprints for Astrologist (lvl 1) in the State Store.

Official PSD bases for all species

The PSDs with separate layers for shadows, highlights and color are now available for all species. There's a transparency lock on every layer so you can just draw without creating new layers and tinkering with blending modes. Click the image to download PSD for the needed species. PNGs are still available for download on the Skin Upload page for players who work in different software and can't use PSDs.

Miscellaneous Updates

  1. Demo Squad Energy Packs are withdrawn from the game.
