Venomancers are in for a big update with PWI: Rising Call, with two all new pets, a new evolution system, and a fun new instance that will stretch their pet command and control skills to the limits!
First off, check out these brand new pets:
The harrowing Harpy!
The magnificent Monkey King!
Fight for Feral Soul Stars!
PWI: Rising Call is introducing an all new combat instance exclusively for Venomancers, to prove their skill and strength and to earn Feral Soul Stars!
Once per day, between 8:00am to 11:30pm servertime, Venomancers at level 100 and up can speak to Mrs. Zoologist (585 620) in South City Archosaur to receive a special pass to enter the Lycaeum of Cultivation.
This special pass only lasts 15 minutes, and can only be obtained once per day – so obtain this pass only when you are completely ready to enter this solo instance!
Once inside, ready yourself and your pet for a fearsome battle! Speak to the NPC and get ready for a swarm of foes!
Starting out, you'll see a semi-circle of dark horseman guards, waiting for the flood of enemies.
The only way to defeat the incoming enemies is by activating guards to attack them for you, and through intelligent and clever use of your pet and your own skills! As you defeat more enemies, you'll earn "credits."
You can "activate" each guard by attacking them with spells. Attacking a previously activated guard will switch them between "flame" and "physical" attacks. Activating a new guard costs 100 credits, so you can only activate guards as you earn credits from defeating enemies!
At the fore of this line, you'll find a sweet little puffbird, just puffing away. This little guy is a key feature of the Lycaeum – you can attack the little guy to cycle through its area debuffs – slower movement, reduced health, or reduced defenses.
You'll need to trigger the right debuff, the right attack types, and use your pet to its fullest abilities in order to succeed in the Lycaeum of Cultivation!
And for your efforts, you will earn Feral Soul Stars!
PWI: Rising Call is introducing an all new way to power up your pets, with the Evolution system!
Open up your pet bag to find a new icon for the Evolution system!
Click that icon to open up the Combat Pet Training interface.
You can see that you can now feed your pets Feral Soul Stars to grant them experience or even to evolve! Special legendary and rare pets can be evolved into advanced forms, granting them access to new skills and new levels of power!
Among the pets that can be evolved:
- Baby Hercules
- Baby Blazing Phoenix
- Derjan's Hatchling
- Cuddly Pup
- Monkey King
- …and more!
Once your pet has reached Lv100+, you can trigger its Evolution by expending Feral Soul Stars, or a combination of Feral Soul Stars and Chienkun Stones!
From beast back to egg….
Once you've evolved your pet into its new form, the Combat Pet Training interface will offer new ways to power up your pet!
In addition to being able to continue leveling up your pet by feeding it Feral Soul Stars, you can now expend a combination of Feral Soul Stars and Chienkun Stones to change its "Mood" or to "Reshape" it.
Each Evolved pet is set to a special mood, which grants the use of two skills. This Avatar of War is currently feeling naughty, which grants it the "Flash" skill – 15% chance to evade normal damage, and the "Provoking" skill – 30% chance to attract all surrounding targets.
Click the Mood List to see a full list of mood types and their corresponding skills.
To change its mood, hit the Mood Training button!
In this interface, you can choose whether or not to accept the new Mood with its two skills. Please note that whether or not you accept this change, you have already expended the Feral Soul Stars and Chienkun Stones to change the pet's mood.
And to tweak your pet's power, hit the Reshape button. At the cost of Feral Soul Stars and Chienkun Stones, you can attempt to roll higher damage, defense, and health stats!
As with the Mood change interface, you can choose whether or not to accept the new stats. Please note that whether or not you accept this change, you have already expended the Feral Soul Stars and Chienkun Stones to change the pet's stats!
Are you ready to power up those pets?
