Return Of The Apocrean Harvester!

Head’s up knights!

We have confirmed that the Apocrean Harvester has emerged for it's semiannual attempt to collect souls. Spiral HQ needs your help!

From now through November 30th, travel onto the Grasping Plateau full of trapped souls and phantom-like monsters. In a maze-like graveyard, knights will find the Apocrea trapping and collecting souls. This sinister being will pursue any who enter the Grasping Plateau hoping to add to the collection. Work together to free souls and find Apocrean Sigil tokens which can be used at the Obelisk of Creation to craft Obsidian weapons and the Grasping Aura.

You don't want to get caught out there alone--definitely bring your friends with you on this mission, and try not to lose sight of them! For a detailed brief on Cradle's previous encounters with this nefarious entity, go here.

Shades of Grey and the Style Kit Update

Greetings Knights!

In an effort to make it easier to give your knight the best look, the gremlins at Spiral HQ have created a Style Kit. Now you can easily swap between appearance modifiers (personal colors, eyes, and height) once you have added them to your Kit.

  • Access your Style Kit through the knight portrait in the upper left of the screen.
  • Once you have your kit, any modifier you use will be added to that kit.
  • You can swap between items you have used using the menu for a small fee. The fee is to help prevent people from spamming public areas with changes and would distracting to other players.
  • Vatel will now offer to sell height modifiers.
  • Modifiers you have previously used will not be added, only those you use after this point.

With fall here and knights using their Style Kits, Haven is bursting with color. But once a knight descends into the Clockworks their decisions aren't black and white, they're somewhere in the Grey. With this in mind, Spiral HQ has put together a box for knights with singular tastes.

Dig into a Grey Prize Box and find a grey costumes, accessories, a grey footstep aura, or sprite pods. Lucky knights might find a Silver Personal Color that they can add to their Style Kit. This silver color change will not be added to Vatel’s inventory in Haven.

The Grey Prize Box contains items such as:
  • Silver Personal Color
  • Grey Aura
  • Maskeraith Pod (Grey), Drakon Pod (Grey), and Seraphynx Pod (Grey)
  • Grey Dragon and Valkyrie Wings
  • Costumes
  • Accessories

More information on the Grey Prize Box and its contents may be found here.

Statue Sale:

With the above release it is now possible to make a statue of your knight that actually looks like a statue! With that in mind we're reducing the price of statues through this month. If the statue you want is not on sale, please check back later. You'll know it's on sale by the "sale" tag on the icon before you purchase it.
