After a few days of data, player feedback, and some extensive number crunching, we have made some adjustments to the [Perfumes of Themed Attraction]. We feel that these adjustments will put the item on par for its intended value and worth and should yield much better results for players who use them.

The following changes in regards to Themed Pets (in the Lost Grove) and Perfumes have been made:

-The base encounter rate for Themed Pets in the Lost Grove has been increased by 20%.

-Perfumes of Themed Attraction now only consume duration when battles against Sylestis are triggered. Prior, it was any encounter. This will make Perfumes static throughout all various conditions that affect encounter rates throughout the Lost Grove and not feel wasted.

-Because of the above change, their duration has been reduced from 100 Battles to 60 Battles. Again, only encounters against Sylestis while inside the Lost Grove will consume this counter.

-Tweaked the stacking bonus of the Perfumes so that, on average, it should require less total Perfumes per Themed Pet. This was a pretty significant tweak and reduced the average Perfume per Themed Pet rate by about 40%.

-Updated the tooltip information for the Perfumes to actually be relevant and accurate.



Because of how the consumption of Perfumes works, I can't simply look and see how many each player has consumed at this point. That data just doesn't exist anywhere in the Database. I was able to originally refund some Perfumes to players because I was able to simply look at their current counters. Since I knew at that time that not a single Themed had been found yet, it was simply counter = Perfumes used. However, that doesn't apply anymore since a couple dozen Themed have been encountered.

So, I will do what I can, which is the following:

-I have bumped up everyone's Perfume durations that were under 60 to be at 60. Anyone's Perfume durations above 60 can keep the bonus duration.

-I will also send refund Perfumes to any player currently at a counter of 4 or higher. Meaning, they have currently used at least 4 consecutive Perfumes without finding a Themed. If you are at 4, you will receive 1 replacement Perfume. If you are at 5, you will receive 2. Etc.



That's about the extent at which I can help players atm. If you have used a lot of Perfumes (and I know a few of you have), but just currently aren't triggered for the above clauses because circumstances, send me a PM and I'll see what I can do. =)


Hopefully these changes will make things feel more balanced and fair. Please post any comments/questions/concerns below. Thanks!

I think this sounds logical and reasonable, :)

Database says that you are on your 3rd consecutive and the duration was reset back up to 60 encounters for your current Perfume.

Thank you for the change!

To be honest, the perfumes were just sitting unused in my inventory, and I don't miss them much at all. But I am glad you made a fix after realising the perfume odds are too low.

Edit: No perfumes back, so I'm guessing I did accidentally run away from a themed pet. Could there be an option to not be able to run away from themed Sylestis in the future? I kick myself every time I accidentally ran from one and realised afterwards!

The counter update is provided every 5 ticks or each of the last 10 ticks. It triggers upon encountering a Sylesti, so you will see the update in the log before you even begin the battle.

Someday I'll add a thing to the interface where players can actually see their current potion buffs. =\

I used up 7 perfumes in total, and I thought I caught him on my 6th. So I was careless running away or just unlucky, which made him especially expensive.

And after that perfume ran out, I used another one after him. Can you only see the most recent counter? That would make the counter #2.
