AvatarMC Soon™ - Issue 91: Veni, Vidi, Wiki

2021-07-09 20:30:00 +0000 UTC by _Guru and TurboClicks

Hi, folks! Guru and Turbo here, bringing you the latest update on your favourite part of the website. The forums!

Just kidding. We're here to announce a few changes to the wiki, as Phase 1 of an ongoing effort to spruce it up a bit. If you have any further ideas as to how we can improve this part of the website, let us know in the #suggestions channel in our Discord! We're sure you're eager to see what we've done already, so why don't we give you an outline?

Removal of the Help pages Direct Link

Sounds counter-intuitive at first glance, right? Wrong. We've moved these pages to the wiki (and provided redirects for those of you who've memorised the originals) to take advantage of updated formatting. Additionally, we no longer have two Fast Travel pages - they've been merged into one.

A New Category Direct Link

With this update to the wiki, we've taken the time to split out the Economy page into its own category. This new index will take you through to the following, including two entirely new pages:

  • Bounties
  • Lotus Tiles
  • Markets
  • Vendors

The vendors page has also been updated to reflect their current stock, alongside adding a couple of new entries that came shortly after Professions was released. You're welcome. Alongside that, we've added coordinates to the Markets page, so it's even harder to get lost.

Icon Updates Direct Link

Now this probably means nothing to 97% of our readers, but we've updated the site's Font Awesome icon library to v5.15.3, allowing us to choose slightly more relevant icons for individual topics. This can be seen in the Economy, Professions, and Dungeons categories.

Page Edits Direct Link

  • The Farmer and Ryu's Campfire have been moved to their proper place in the Dungeons category as Mini-Dungeons.
  • The Spirit World Capture page has been rewritten to be marginally more informational.
  • Navigational breadcrumbs have been added to all wiki pages, allowing you to move back a page without having to scroll up.

  • Professions: avatarmc.com/wiki/category/professions → avatarmc.com/wiki/professions


Well, that's all for now, folks. If you want to contribute, leave us a note in the #suggestions Discord channel linked above. Stay tuned for more changes!

Greetings and salutations, readers! It's that time of year again - you know the one. If you don't, I've a fantastic property underneath this here rock to sell you (It has fiber and everything).

This year, we've something a bit different for you. Caihong, the Rainbow Spirit, has invited everyone along to their realm in the Spirit World to celebrate love in all its forms! I'm sure you're excited to see what's in store, so, without any further ado, let's jump on into things!


The LGBTree Direct Link

If you've visited the Pride Town of yesteryear, you'll recognize this one - except someone's been giving it premium fertilizer. This is where you'll spawn when you enter the event, and it's also how you'll get to the different parts of the map. Nifty.

If you've managed to get lost in the event, our professional cartographer has drafted a map for you, which can be seen below.

Fort Pride Direct Link

Feel like getting lost in wonderland? Amazeingly enough, we can help you with that. Once you're done groaning at my clearly superior pun, grab a piece of string and make your way through the labyrinth.


The Hot Air Balloon Hangar Direct Link

Here at AvatarMC, the sky's the limit! Now you don't need to be an airbender to fly with the birds, you just need a hot air balloon! As long as you stay within this little box next to an open flame, that is.

The parkour is the basis for the 'Duck, Goose, Hot Air Balloon' quest, and upon completion you'll recieve some nice rewards! Though please note that pushing other players off to "reduce the weight" is not permitted. Talk to the Conductor at the top of the Marketplace Hill to get started.


New Cosmetics Direct Link

What would an event be without fresh new cosmetics? Head on down to the Marketplace and speak with Star, your neighborhood friendly entrepeneur. Purchase this event's cosmetics at 5 Lotus Tiles a piece, or, for nostalgia's sake, you can buy last year's for 3 Lotus Tiles each.

With a fresh stock of new cosmetics, we also have added base cosmetics featuring the Non Binary flag and the Pansexual flag! See below for the complete list of new items and their prices.
