Hello and Welcome to Eliyo!
If you want to get started right away, then Visit Clayton in Lavinth, a city in the world of Eliyo. Clayton is a breeder of sorts and may be willing to help you out. He knows a lot about taking care of elons too.
If you prefer to read more before jumping in then you can continue by reading the Getting Started Guide now and then visit Clayton when you’re ready. You could also visit the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to get some quick answers.×

Expanded Drag and Drop Feature
I've updated the drag and drop sort feature so that you can now drag and drop elons to your group and nest sections to easily sort them.
When you hover over the nest partition, it'll also open up and list the sections underneath it. You can't do the hover swap affect while dragging an elon however, so you'll need to open up the partition with the section you want to drop the elon into before you pick them up. I worked on getting it to work together for a while, but there were some issues getting it to work so I dropped it in favor of getting this released for you all.
Hope you all enjoy!
Better Needs Handling and Random Events
Sleep and Food Needs
Did a lot of reworking on the system for when you are away and log back in and elons should be a lot easier to care for now.
I had previously updated the required food amount elons needed each day to be greatly reduced, but missed updating a location for it, and so it wasn't working as intended, but now it should be. I also updated everyones food bin so you should have a little stock to start with. Along with that I increased elons current food levels so they are close to full or full depending on what their level was before the update.
Let me know if things still seem off but hopefully this will help it not be so burdensome to take care of your elons.
Completely reworked this code so that elons should typically be awake and rested after you leave and come back to the site. I know sleeping elons has been a huge problem for people and while I had tried tweaking the code in the past it's still been an issue. So hopefully this time it'll be working a lot better. Of course some tweaking may be needed, but overall should be better.
There will now be random events that can happen as you play the game. There are just a few so far with more to be added. This can include a couple detrimental ones, fairly minor amounts, but loss of coin and health is a possibility. Otherwise you can find coins or very rarely a Elyte.
Feel free to make suggestions for some other random event ideas below!
Downtime and Other News
Hey everyone, you may have noticed the server went down for a bit and I wanted to assure you it was just a server issue and the game is not being shut down. We ran out of disk space. I have for now just increased the server size, but plan on clearing out logs and possibly doing even more automaticed log pruning to keep them from filling up too much more.
Logs are nice as they help me track the game and see how it's being used as well as address issues as they come up, but it also significantly adds a lot of bloat to the server.
I also wanted to apologize for my absense the past few months. Honestly I have just been a bit burnt out on everything, and with Eliyo being regulated to hobby status needed to take a step back for a bit and recharge. But I am still planning on updates for Eliyo and have worked on different items including the questing system in this time (it's getting there but not ready yet), the pace is just a little slower being I do have to work a full time job and have other life responsibilities as well.
New Mini Game Marble Match!
A new mini game can be found in the Gaming Corner. Match the marbles together for a larger numbered marble, get to 16834 to win, but earn coins along the way!
Hope you enjoy the new game. As well please let me know if the amount of coin gain feels balanced or needs tweaked. And if you feel it needs tweaked which direction or in what way.
New Face Markings!
There are 3 new face markings available now!
This should allow for a lot of new possibilities. Post any favorite designs, breedings, or findings with the new markings below!
Happy Valentine's Day
A couple days behind but happy Valentine's Day! The bakery now has a number of new cookies you can find including some that will only be available for a limited time so get them while you can! These will likely only be available until the end of the month so keep an eye out if you are trying to collect them.
In addition the toy shop is stocking some limited time pink Valentine plushies which can be seen above.
For all those active in the two weeks enjoy a free Red Velvet cookie!
Tutorial Extended - 2nd Starter Elon
The starting tutorial has now been extended! For those who have already completed the tutorial, which will be most of you reading this, you can still continue from where you left off.
After picking your first elon Clayton still directs you to the battle arena, but will also tell you to return after 5 battles. He also gifts a couple potions to help out with those first battles,
which I will be gifting to everyone active in the last few weeks so you don't miss out on these. He also tells you to return to him after the 5 battles. If you've already completed 5 battles, then you won't need to do five more, but you will need to do one more, as it only checks at the end of battle whether you have completed the 5 needed.
However once you do you can head over and pick a second Elon from Clayton.
This screen has had a slight change as you can now toggle and show the elemental detail of the elon before picking it. This will hopefully make it it a little easier to know the strengths and weaknesses of the chosen elon beforehand.
Once you pick another elon Clayton will give you some advice to breed along with a free Yokio Herb to get you started!
After a successful breed attempt the tutorial will clear out (for now at least) and so also be removed from the navigation.
Update: Kickstarter Officially Started!
If you are enjoying the game so far, please consider supporting us tomorrow. You can help by backing the project financially (in which case you will also get some great rewards!) or sharing with your friends that might be interested!
The above images are two avatar outfits in kickstarter edition coloring you can get through backing us financially.

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.
Visit our preview page: http://www.eliyo.net/kickstarter
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.
