Avatar’s Update #319: Crown Store Buff, New Decorations, Freshwater Fishing Contest Livestream Today


Greetings Fellow Avatars! Here’s what we have for you in this week’s edition of Update of the Avatar:

Crown Store Buff & New Decorations for Release 63

Back in October of last year Travis “Vas Corp Por” Koleski started a thread in the forums entitled “Deco Wishlist that is already in-game”.  The purpose of the thread is “…for world decorations that are already in the game that are not yet player-facing decos that people would like to have.” The thread has been steadily filling up with player requests and we are happy to say that the first round will be ready for Release 63 and will be available in the Crown Store!

Speaking of the Crown Store, to encourage players to find the Crown Store button we have added a buff! Players will get a small one-day long buff with any purchase from the Crown Store. The buff strength is the same whether you spend 1 crown or 1000. You can have up to three buffs at once and there are currently 22 variations. These buffs will remain in place for at least two months / Releases but possibly longer to help players with the transition to an in-game store.

Here are the converted deco items for Release 63 so far:

Bird Cage:
