PVU Farm 3.3 - Evolution of NFTs
As you all have known, 2022 is a great year for PVU, with waves of updates bringing new content and great improvement to the table.
As PVU is undergoing a grand metamorphosis to be a better product, new mechanics and gameplay have been introduced to further enhance the gaming experience of the community.
And one of the biggest questions that have plagued the community for a while, is “how do the new Undeads and Plants operate?”
Today, we’re honored to share a few more insights relating to the evolution mechanic of your NFTs, the Plants and the Undeads.
Essence is a new type of “currency” whose main purpose is to evolve NFTs such as Plants and Undeads into higher stages.
The higher stages (and rarities) the Plants/ Undeads are, the more Essence they require to ascend into more grown, powerful states.
How to earn Essence?
There’re 3 different types of Essence, and the way to earn each type varies. But the most common (and maybe brutal) way to earn the Essence, is by sacrificing your Plants/ Undeads.
By using the new feature Altar of Destruction, you can grind unnecessary NFTs into Essence. While grinding Undeads would give you Beast Essence, you will gain Plant Essence by grinding NFT Plants.
Please be aware that the sacrificed NFTs will be gone forever and the action can’t be undone once it has been completely processed (you will be prompted for your confirmation over this action by the system).
Only Undeads/ Plants at the rarity of Epic and below can be sacrificed, so you can rest assured knowing that extremely rare NFTs at Legendary/ Mythic Undeads/ Plants won’t be accidentally sacrificed.
Types of Essence
1. Beast Essence
By grinding the Undeads, you will earn Beast Essence. To evolve an Undead from stage 1 to stage 2, or from stage 2 to stage 3, you will need a specific amount of Beast Essence (depends on the stages and the rarities).
2. Plant Essence
By grinding the NFT Plants, you will earn Plant Essence. To evolve a NFT Plant from stage 1 to stage 2, or from stage 2 to stage 3, you will need a specific amount of Plant Essence (depends on the stages and the rarities).
3. Soul Essence
By using Mysterious Powder, you will earn Soul Essence. Soul Essence can replace either Beast/ Plant Essence in the instance that you are lacking the specific Essence to evolve your Undeads/ Plants. You will be prompted for your confirmation over the replacement of Soul Essence over the insuffient Essence by the system.
Please also be aware that while the NFT Plants can be evolved at any time as long as they aren’t being planted on a Farm; the Undeads must fulfill these 2 conditions:
The Undeads must be NOT on an Expedition Trip.
The Undeads must reach maximum Affection Level (for stage 1) or maximum Combat Level (for stage 2).
Altar of Destruction
Altar of Destruction is a new feature that can be accessed via the Main Menu of PVU. After entering this Altar, you can select the NFTs (Plants/ Undeads) that you want to sacrifice to gain their Essence. Only NFTs that meet the requirements are displayed in this screen.
After that, you will access the website of PVU to confirm the sacrifice, as this action equals the burning of NFTs and will require the acknowledgment of their owners. After the sacrifice has been completed, you will gain the total Essence of the sacrificed NFTs and they are visible in the game.
Altar of Creation
Altar of Creation is a new feature that can be accessed via the Main Menu of PVU. After entering this Altar, you can select the NFTs (Plants/ Undeads) that you want to evolve. The required amount of Essence and/ or extra materials will be displayed differently depending on what stages/ rarities of the NFTs would be evolved.
You will be prompted by the system that this is an action that can’t be undone once it has been completely processed. When you have successfully evolved a NFT, you now can view its new appearance, as well as new combat stats and abilities.
NFT Evolution is a key feature that will allow NFT owners to play the game way more effectively, as only the NFTs of stage 2 and above can participate in the PVE mode (which will be released in v4.0).
Although the PVE 4.0 will be delayed until the end of May 2022, the Altars and the Essence mechanics will be delivered on v3.3, which will be live at the start of May 2022, so that NFT owners can get a strong head-start with great preparation.
We wish you all good luck and let’s aim for a bright future of PVU.
