Fossil Island Feedback
First of all we wanted to thank all of you for the huge amount of feedback Fossil Island. We have just hot fixed some changes into the game based on this feedback.
We have increased the new wyvern s significantly so they are much more profitable and have also increased the rate at which they drop fossils. We have not touched the skeletal wyvern s at this stage.
We will continue to monitor this over the next week in case we need to make more changes.
Fossil drop rates
The tar monsters will now do a little less damage, despawn a little more quickly and the passive creatures will last a little longer. We hope that this will make finding a path through the swamp a little safer and allow those who have not spawned the monsters to be at their mercy for so long.
We have also buffed the drop rate for Sulliuscep caps to 1:250.
We have buffed the yield of seaweed slightly and we will be increasing the giant seaweed to soda ash ratio 1:2 to 1:6 in a future update.
We have buffed the thieving chance 1:10 to 1:8.5 and have decreased the cost of fossils in the mermaid shop by 60%. We have also reduced the amount of tears needed for the merfolk trident by 60% and we are looking to add a new ability to it next week. Over the next week we will do a full review of the items in the mermaid tear shop.
We have reduced the amount of jute you need to make your nets 10 to 2. Also, you now have a chance of catching a medium clue bottle in the drift net.
We have changed the chance of a composted plot getting diseased 1:7 to 1:10. Don't forget you also get an extra herb if you use ultra-compost
There has been discussion surrounding an ultra-compost version of the Fertile Soil spell and we will start investigating this fits best for a future poll.
We have doubled the XP for taking down a bird house. We will review this over the next week to see if further changes are necessary. Next week we will also look at either moving the bird house on the south side of the island to some more accessible or making it easier to get to.
Although this isn't Fossil Island related it is something we should mention here.
We recently made a change to stop pla
