As has been discussed for the past few days, I have been working on setting up Sylesti Nests for the Lost Grove. We wanted to do something a little different and more special than how they have worked in other places, so it took a bit of time to set up.

Please note, the following information only pertains to the Lost Grove. This will have no effect on any other explore areas of Sylestia at this time.




What is an Abandoned Nest?

An Abandoned Nest has its own specific spawn points throughout the Lost Grove. Under normal conditions, you will not see them. However, when you do finally find one, it will contain either an Epic or Legendary regular Pet or it will contain a Rare, Epic, or Legendary Themed Pet. The chances of containing a Themed Pet are rather high. The Eggling will also come with decently high Wild Stats; even higher if it's a Themed Pet.


How Do I Encounter Them?

Upon initial spawn/respawn of the Lost Grove or upon every node that you encounter, a check is made and attempts to spawn an Abandoned Nest. At a base rate, they are pretty rare and intended to be a rare encounter - given how nice the rewarding Pet will be. But basically, the more nodes that you encounter, the more Abandoned Nests you'll be able to spawn.

A node, at this time, would be either a Lost Grove Chest or Grove Ore Vein.

However, there is also a special bonus players can utilize to further increase their chances of spawning Abandoned Nests.


What Bonus?

For every Pet that is at least 42 Days of Age (Age being time since the Pet was created) that a player releases, it will boost the spawn chance of an Abandoned Nest indefinitely until a player encounters an Abandoned Nest - and then the rate resets back to the base. This can be repeated indefinitely.

The logic is: for every mature adult of ripe age that's released, it can traverse into the Lost Grove and help to contribute to the wild population of Sylesties and attempt to find a mate and then breed. Thus, you can then encounter these special Egglings that are sometimes left behind by the parents.

So the more that you contribute to this effort, the higher your chance is of encountering an Abandoned Nest.

Will this only be in effect for Zone 2, or will it affect Zone 1 as well?

Oooh, fun idea! I just started onTuesday though, so it'll probably be a while before I even see the Lost Grove. XD

I love the idea of this! Just a quick question, that is 42 days of age of the pet, not 42 days I have to own, in otherwords... I can buy lots of cheap pets and release them at 42 days?

It will be global for all of the Lost Grove. It won't matter what Stage you're on.

Correct, it doesn't matter who owns it.

Just as long as the "Age: 42 Days" or higher is on the profile.

This is great!

Although now I'm regretting the releasing spree I went on today. Oops.

I like this idea! It's a good way of motivating people to release, and it feels more like "upgrading" or trading in the pets instead of just dumping them. Hopefully will result in fewer cheap pets and more of these valuable ones. And the age thing is good, too! Prevents people just filling their hatcheries, you actually need the stable space.
