Sylestian Service

The Sylestian Service feature has returned! Enlist and aid your kingdom through the branches of combat, caretaking, and conservation! As you complete the requirements for each branch, you will gain ranks and progress from Civilian all the way to Champion! Master a branch to earn additional rewards specific to that branch!

Combat: The combat branch is best for those who wish to charge into the thick of situations and settle things on the battlefield. You can earn rank through the combat branch by defeating any non-Sylesti enemies within the following zones: Sweet Blossom Orchard, Astryl's Tranquility, The Lost Grove.

Caretaking: The caretaking branch is best for those who pursue more peaceful means and excel at nurturing young Sylesti. You can earn rank through the successful nurture of any Sylesti. Either visit your Hatchery or visit individual pet's profile pages to nurture.

Conservation: The conservation branch is best for those who manage large breeding projects and have many aged adult Sylesti that they are willing to release into the wild. The wild populations of Sylesti are always strained upon and so conservation is vital to maintain healthy levels. You can earn rank by releasing any Sylesti that is at least 42 days of Age.

In total, there are 7 main ranks and then 3 branches for Rank 8. Earn progress towards the next rank by completing any of the requirements for Combat, Caretaking, or Conservation. Once you unlock a new rank, visit the Sylestian Service page to rank up and claim your rewards for that rank! In order to acquire a Rank 8 status and claim its rewards, you must have a current rank of Champion (Rank 7). However, progress towards Rank 8 tiers is awarded regardless of current rank.

The 7 main ranks in order are: Scout, Corporal, Sergeant, Knight, Templar, Guardian, and Champion!

As you gain a new rank, you will receive a Bundle of rewards specific to that rank. This will always include a at least 2 new Outfit items and a Title. The Knight and Champion ranks will include 2 new Head items, 1 new Held item, and a Themed Pet!

Once you have achieved the rank of Champion (Rank 7), you will now unlock the ability to master the 3 branches: High Warlord, High Priest, and High Druid!

Each of the Rank 8 branches can be achieved separately and players will have the opportunity to achieve all 3. Upon mastering a branch, you will receive a Bundle of rewards specific to that rank. This will include 2 new Outfit items, 2 new Head items, 1 new Held item, and a Themed Pet! Additionally, players who master all 3 Rank 8 branches will receive a very special and exclusive Title: Guardian of the Realm!

The following outfit items (and their Re-Colorable versions!) are available from the Sylestian Service:

Rank 9 (Grand Protector): Once a player has achieved the max rank for High Warlord, High Priest, and High Druid, they can unlock Rank 9: Grand Protector. Players can then progress through Rank 9 by participating in Combat, Caretaking, and Conservation. Once they complete Rank 9, they will receive a big bundle of exclusive rewards!

I completed the high priest branch last patriotic fest.

Do completed branches from last year count toward Guardian of the Realm or Grand Protector?

I would like to know this too. Judging from what I saw when I clicked on the link to the Sylestian Service Rank page, it looks like they do (My rank is still Champion, and the High Priest title I earned last year is still there.), but Im curious what Krinadon has to say. It could be just an update delay. *Shrugs*

Quick mini-announcement for anyone who happens to see this. Currently, some sylesti encounters are registering as pyros. They have the stats of a wild pet, but they have Pyro names in battle and drop pyro loot when either defeated or captured. So. If you're pyro hunting. Keep an eye out for the pyrolesties as well.

also if people catch pyrolesties I will buy them. no matter the rarity or species or traits. I just want pyrolesties o3o
