Egg Cave Quests Public Release

Welcome to Egg Cave Quests

vending-machine.png

Egg Cave Quests are a brand-new way for players to use their items and, ultimately, exchange them up for extremely rare and limited edition creatures at The VEND Machine.

Egg Cave Quests have been in beta for the last several weeks. After getting feedback and data from hundreds of testers, we're ready for the public to enjoy this game-changing feature.

The Basics of Questing

  • Visit the NPCs under Quests (find the Quests link under the Games drop down)
  • Start a quest and return the items they ask for
  • Upon successfully completing a quest, you will receive Quest Tokens of that type in return
  • Spend your Quest Tokens at The VEND Machine
  • Creatures you obtain from The VEND Machine will be marked on their profile as such (i.e. a "VEND Creature")

How The VEND Machine Works

The VEND Machine is controlled by Team Egg Cave. Reward pools will only be available for a limited time and can change at any moment. There is no "schedule" when it comes to reward pools (like monthlies). Reward pools at The VEND Machine, of course, will be up for long enough for the average user to work toward their goal but know that they won't be there for forever!

The goal is to accumulate Quest Tokens over time to redeem a reward pool. Get started!

How To Get Items You Need

Quest NPCs will be asking for items from all around Ark — not just items that you own or have in your Strongroom already. To find items you need for quests, you'll need to use:

"We Already Know" Quirks of Questing

Older players who have gigantic Strongroom stockpiles will begin with an obvious advantage with quests but this will decrease over time as they use their items. Don't hate on players who have lots of items already. They earned it.

Additionally, you should not expect to be able to successfully complete all quests taken. This is a part of the game! We have done our best to design an enjoyable questing system but your success rates will not be 100%.

Philosophy of Quests

Questing is Team Egg Cave's attempt to improve user access to rare creatures from past years. Egg Cave is enjoying an influx of brand-new, enthusiastic players and nothing is more frustrating than signing up for a web site only to discover that you can physically obtain less than 50% of all of the creatures ever created. Egg Cave was never meant to become a game where species literally go extinct or are impossibly priced.

Team Egg Cave plans to be actively engaged with the community to see what creatures might be in demand for a possible VEND Machine appearance. Know that we're listening to you and paying attention to your comments and the creatures you want.

Please know that, at the moment, we have no plans to re-release Egg Cave species that were CaveCash-only creatures at the The VEND Machine. Other site features are being explored for this. Cave monthlies and event creatures from years past are the most likely to become available at The VEND Machine in coming months.

Coming Soon to Quests

  • More quest types and NPCs
  • More reward pools available at The VEND Machine

New Areas at Egg Cave

  • My Tokens: see your Quest Token balances (find Quests under the Games drop down menu)
  • Monthly: Quests Leaderboard: the top 50 questers will receive 25,000 EC at the turn of each month (on the 1st)
  • Help: Quests: there's a brand-new Quests FAQ page to help you learn more about questing

Multiple Accounts

Do not visit Quest NPCs from your side accounts. This is a main accounts-only activity.

Not a huge quester? Maybe become a restocker!

There is going to be increased demand for items from the main shops. It will become more profitable to begin reselling items in your shops (mostly to questers). Now is the time to begin selling!
