Maybe they have plans for an Obsidian Wyvern?
That would be awesome!
Yes, there are four wyvern colors added into the game so far:
Red Wyvern: Common
Purple Wyvern: Uncommon
Orange Wyvern: Uncommon
Currently, wyverns only appear in new barbarian encounters in Novia. There are in Norgard, north Verdantis, and North Paladis. Go to those areas, engage any barbarian you see walking around, and get pulled into a barbarian encounter. Kill barbarians to draw out the "boss wave" which may include wyverns. Note that not every barbarian encounter results in wyverns appearing!
Rare skinned pets????
Thank ya sir!
Love love love seeing that flock of wyverns in the sky! That said...
The encounter feels off right now. It is not like the Atavist encounter where there is a build up to a larger fight. The Barbarians are sub 200 HP. After killing them the pack of Wyverns appear with a single barbarian archer. The archer can be pulled, but the wyverns always fly and attack together with a very large aggro range. The archer is about 1100 HP and the wyverns each about 2400 HP. Without a build up this is going to be very unforgiving to new or mid level players without any warning that something bigger is coming.
Any tamer that can survive this encounter is not going to have any use for the Wyvern that they capture.
Good feedback! A couple of quick notes:
The HP settings aren't my thing, but I can look into the pacing of how quickly the "bosses" are added into the scene.
Also, regarding the "without any warning" comment: you should literally get a warning (as text in the middle of the screen, and in your chat window) when the tougher enemies are approaching. Is this not happening for you?
@Sannio Can you tell us if the white Wyvern is a higher level or just a rare color?
It's a rare color, not a higher level.
I did not get the normal warning for "something is coming" for the encounter. I will test more to make sure. That text is nice by the way, but it still feels like the Atavist encounter builds up to the final fight in a more interesting way by having 3 waves of enemies each consecutively more difficult. Anyone too low level that is caught up in this has a chance to figure out they are outmatched. They can either call out for friends, or move on to more beneficial use of their time.
Cheers, and thanks as always for the blood, sweat, and tears you each put into this!
Yay! That sounds like fun! Wyvern hunting is going to be a blast!
Though I do wish the rarer Wyvern were more powerful....
I would really like to do these encounters but three wyverns (even two) is way too many. How about just having one spawn?
I found a white one (offline mode) so decided to tame it... Here's a SS to show what they look like:
@Sannio Verified the "You sense a great threat" text displayed in a subsequent encounter. I will write it up if i notice the text missing again, but for now at least that part is good. The issue with the encounter going from trivial to deadly in one step is of course still there. I love that the Wyverns are tough, but still feel the encounter could be more interesting if there was a closer progression of difficulty.
Update: Verified in the chat log. The first encounter the text did not show, the second it did.
So they also drop haunches, which seem unusable at this point...
Would be nice to have a mounted wyvern head
Noticed that too. I would imagine they will add the butchering recipe in an upcoming patch, and then possibly new food recipes to use the meat later (similar to what they did with the Obsidian Boar Haunches).
I see the new project is to get them all (all colours) or fitting to the dance outfit.
I'm so disappointed, I waited so long for Wyverns and thought they would be a high level pet. They look cool but they are the same level as a Darkstarr Corpion, a pet we have had for a long time. It's just such a letdown.
Thanks for double-checking.
I put in a change yesterday that will have the "boss wave" start with two enemies and then a delay before the third one appears, and when one of them dies the fourth/final one appears. This is similar to other random encounter boss waves. I think this change should be on QA now.
I want one.....
@Sannio Would be really cool if we could get Wyvern scales/bones/hide and craft Wyvern Light, Medium, and Heavy Armor.
