Kickstarter Launching February 5th!
Kickstarter is going to Launch on Tuesday February 5th. Less than 2 weeks away. Some of you may realize this is a little later than we had initially mentioned which was January 29th, however we are pushing it back a week in order to be better prepared and to better advertise that it's coming up!
But you can view the preview page today! And see what we have planned.

Other Updates Since our Last News Post
- Updated using items from an elons profile so it saves which item you have selected. So if you select to use a Rope Toy, when you open up the menu again, the Rope Toy will still be selected. This should make it a littler easier to feed and play with your elons directly.
- The forums have been updated to under the username there are quick links to get to their cabinet, shop, and group.
- The Nest Quick Stock has been added to the left hand navigation
- Account Setting has been removed from the side bar. You can find it next to your name to the right, the little gear icon instead.
- Meal Center has been added to the explore. You can now get free food once a day! Should be a full meal.
- Battling flee and backpack have been swapped around and there is now a confirmation for fleeing so it isn't as easy to acciddently do so. You may need to refresh for this to work correctly.
Bakery and Scroll Shop Opened!
Gertrude's Bakery and Maps and Scrolls shops have been added to the map! Gertrude has all sorts of yummy baked goods including elon themed cookies, bagels, different breads, and cakes. So stop by today and give your elon a yummy treat.
Maps and Scrolls a small shop run by two brother has also been added to the map. One brother, Sullivan is out right now, but will hopefully be back soon and will bring some new features with him.
Cornelius the other brother is a painter. He has painted some pieces of different parts of Eliyo that can be purchased and viewed. They are also a great gallery addition, and can be viewed from there as well. An example of the scroll above can be found in my gallery, http://www.eliyo.net/cabinet/user/2
5 Markings + Preat Tail!
Five new markings have been added to the game. Cheetah, Roan, Saddle, Collie (inverted), and Tan Points! In addition to the five markings we also have a new tail for preats. This tail is particularly rare but is findable in the wild.
Good luck on your hunt!
Daily Login Bonus
You will now get coins just for logging into Eliyo everyday! If you login every day for 7 days in a row, you'll get an Elyte! After that the count will reset and you can get another elyte in another 7 days.
Down Time - Server Issues
I know some of you experienced some down time for a couple hours (last night Eliyo time). I apologize for the interruption, the server got a little full with all the extra activity recently. However it has been upgraded now. I will also be doing some clean up later today to remove unnecessary files and add in some more routine clean up tasks to help mitigate this in the future.
I have made up some referral banners you can use in your signature on other sites if you'd like to advertise the game. While we don't currently have a prize system in place, referrals are tracked for when one is added in the future.
If you use the code listed on the page the referral will work automatically but otherwise be sure to have players enter your Username or ID for it to be tracked.
You can find the banners on the new media page which has been added to the sidebar under other. http://www.eliyo.net/presskit
IMPORTANT! Don't forgot to check the rules of the site in question before using these. Somes sites do not allow you to mention or talk about other sites at all!
Note this is the second news post today, so don't miss the previous one where we talk about newbie packs being added and Clayton's elons being searchable.
Newbie Pack and Clayton in Elon Search
Final Reserves - Newbe Starter Pack
When you start the game you start with your final reserves of items. You should find this in your inventory as well, but let me know if it's not there. The notifications for the items did not send out correctly but I believe all the items themselves were sent.
Search Clayton's Elons
You can now search for Clayton's elon with the standard elon search option, so that should help as he tends to have a lot of elons anymore.
- I also fixed a couple bugs recently including one that caused the initial defense and speed to sometimes set incorrectly on first catching a wild elon. It does correct itself on level up, but would sometimes show 'negative' stat gains which was really confusing. If the wild elon was caught before this update, you may still notice that happening.
- Tables can now be used on forums correctly.
- Tooltips reseting correctly on elon profile page.
Rune Stone and Dragon Breed Preview!
Some of you may have already seen this on the discord or elsewhere, but we are officially annoucing this Dragon as our next breed. He will be very limited, only available as a custom once a year! This year that will be during our Kickstarter.
As for catching him in the wild, he will also be very rare and hard to find and catch. These ones are a little tempermental, and they don't tame as easily as the elons we have so far. So be prepared for some work to get him to listen to really respect you.
Rune Stones (previously called move crystals)
Rune stones are finally released and being stocked at the Adventurer's Hub. So keep an eye out and you can gain one for yourself. There is at least one stone for every elemental type right now. They are fairly powerful attacks which can be learned a little earlier than a similar attack you learn naturally.
They are also one use items, so pick carefully who you will use it on!
You can use your Rune Stone from your backpack on elons in your group or directly on the elons page.
While some status effects have been appearing already, more have been added with some attacks being added specifically for status effects. I will be added an entry to the appendix about status effects, but until then, play a little and discover for yourself! There are currently 8 released status effects right now.
Kickstarter to Launch Soon!
Eliyo is launching a Kickstarter! The date is not yet official but could be as early as the end of this month!
Eliyo is not yet the world it is meant to be, Kickstarter will help get it there. You will be able to really explore Lavinth with it's multiple districts. There will be many more npcs to interact with in various ways. Talk with them, get quests if they like you, and even battle them!
Human avatars are one piece that this kickstarter will cover allowing you to visually represent yourself as an adventurer. Above you can see the two bases with a variety of faces, hair, and skin colors. Cloaks and staves are also commonly used by Adventurer's in Eliyo, so those can be seen as well.
More information is to come with visuals. But for now here is a concept sketch for Lavinth.
Stay tuned as we plan to release more information over the next couple weeks including some previews of the town, a new elon, and new shops!
Join our discord for even more sneak peaks!
Merry Christmas everyone! I was out of town for Christmas day, so a bit late, but please enjoy a random Christmas plushie for all those who have been active in the last month! A Rare Christmas Plush Surprise has been gifted which can then be opened up for one of these plushies. These plushies will be fairly limited so enjoy them while you can, might be something to store in your vault so your elons don't accidently destroy it in a play session. You can purchase more Rare Plush Surprises from Adlwin for 10 Elytes and they will be offered for a limited time, running about a month.
In addition to the plushies I have also released some more items for the battle arenas. There are a couple regular items such as Chives and Ginger Root.
And there are some rare mushrooms and stat herbs that help with training up elons increasing their training values (tv) just by consuming them!
Mahjong Solitaire Released!
Adlwin's doesn't just make toys for elons but has a line of games geared towards their human companions! Play his latest in the gaming corner of the Lavinth Bistro. The first to be released is a Mahjong Solitaire game complete with an Eliyo themed Mahjong set.
You can earn up to 5000 coins a day playing Mahjong, but you can play as long as you want otherwise.
Reminder: Making or using anything to play the game for you is NOT allowed and is a bannable offense.
Nyrin Plushies Released!
Adlwin has been hard at work and has finally perfected the Nyrin Plush! He has a few colors released so far added to the shop rotation with more to come! Enjoy having even more plushies to fill up your cabinet with.
Cabinet Display on Profile
Profiles have been updated removing the trinkets section that wasn't in use and adding in a new section for your
Cabinet display. If you don't have a cabinet the section is simple not shown. Otherwise it'll pick 5 items at random to display from your Cabinet so showing them off should be easier to do. There is also a quick link to the full cabinet.
Elon Bonding - Retain It's Youth!
A new update has been added that allows you to bond with a specific elon. The elon that you choose to bond with will retain it's youthfulness including reverting it's age back if needed! Currently you can bond with 1 elon, but in the future you will be able to increase your Adventurer level (currently 1 and hidden) which will increase the amount of elons you can bond with!
You can unbond with elons anytime, but you must have a relationship of 85% or higher to bond with a specific elon.
Note that elon de-aging is not instant, but they do de-age quicker than they age up. And any youthfulness regained will stick if the bond is removed, though they will start aging up normally again.
Hope you enjoy!
Edit: Happy Thanksgiving to those in the States! Was so busy I forgot to post day of. But sent out some Pumpkins to those active in the past couple weeks.
Leaderboards and More!
Basic Leaderboards have been added to the site for weekly, yearly, and all time. Note they are slow right now and I will be working on some updates to make them faster. In the meantime they are cached for 5 and 10 minutes. Meaning if you do a battle, it likley will take that long to show up on the boards.
Weeks run from Sunday to Saturday. This week there are no rewards, but for the weekly tiers rewards will be added for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Badges are one reward, but also coins, elytes, and rare items will all be options.
Leaderboard links can be found at the bottom of the battle arenas page.
Weekly Board, Yearly Board, All Time Board
Updated adding in a listing of non staff contributors as even if they aren't staff we wouldn't be where we are without them! This includes paid artists and some volunteers for different tasks. Also updated the page overall a bit to account for this and added in staff pictures.
Tweaked layout some and added in a spot to show up recently bred and recently caught elons! Will likley add some leaderboard information here once I get that information pullable in a way that doesn't slow down the site.Bug Fixes
- Fixed an issue with elemental tvs resistance allocation that was happening with lower resistences.
- Fixed issue with purchasing elons for Elytes.
- Fixed issue which was causing automatic payment processing to fail.
