Community Wellness with the Meretz Fitness App

We strongly believe in promoting well-being in each and every member of the community, and their extended network of family, friends, and associates. We are partnering with Meretz, a free and unique way to transform your physical activity into virtual fitness currency. They are hooking in Shroud of the Avatar to their app so we can get you in-game rewards for using it!

To help promote awareness and recognition of wellness behavior and events, we came up with the Wellness Cloak, similar in concept to the Clasped Gauntlets Cloak for community events. For joining the effort, users of the Meretz app will get this Wellness Cloak that you can wear in-game as a symbol of your wellness goals.

You will be able to redeem Meretz Points for in-game Obsidian Potions. There are currently 7 potion options:

  • Potion of Capacity: Increases carrying capacity
  • Potion of Conservation: Reduces reagent use chance
  • Potion of Expedience: Swift gathering on all gathering skills
  • Potion of Precision: Increases Meticulous Collection to all gathering skills
  • Potion of Preservation: Reduces armor and weapon damage
  • Potion of Reclamation: Increases Salvage and Repair to all production skills
  • Potion of Stamina: Decreases focus use from sprinting

How it works:

  • Download the Meretz app
  • Connect to Apple Health, Google Fit, or Fitbit
  • Earn Meretz Points for being active
  • Connect Meretz to Shroud – get the free exclusive Meretz Cloak!
  • Use your points to buy Shroud potions and other game items

Other Meretz related in-game wellness items are being considered, so stay tuned for future updates!

    I have connected my alt account. No issues. Some have connected their accounts, claimed the cloak and then changed their password. Now I have to get back to walking. :)

    Just a note for this article thread, the app developer has joined our forums and will be working on an alternative to using your password to verify accounts. They have also stated that the password field is a single use, non-stored entry that performs a single account verification check right now. Admittedly, that wasn’t at all clear in the app.

    I am confident that everyone that wants to participate will be satisfied with the end result.

    I’m not finding the sign up instructions clear. The Meretz app is asking for my SoTA account username and SotA User ID. I take it username is the username I sign into the SotA game or forum. So what is SotA User ID?

    What a great and fun idea! I don’t walk much but TRY to use my stationary recumbent bike 3-5 times a week to keep my old knees moving. Now I have even MORE motivation to do so! Can we say new items for Rhiannon’s Creations? I knew you could…

            Thanks that was not clear at all so I never signed up. I had no idea what a SotA ID# was, nor even that they existed.
