The Traveler has been called away on some (what he claims to be) important business. As such, he will no longer be able to
force convince his blacksmith friend to upgrade equipment.
But do not fret, dear Furvillans! You are now able to add your own sockets to equipment, and believe it or not, the final cost to do so is much less then our tricky ol' hyena friend was previously charging.
By visiting the Fair Exchange, you will be able to purchase the following recipes for your Crafters to learn:
I wonder which magazine runs these ads?
Socket-O-Matic 5 may be obtained rarely when crafting a Socket-O-Matic 4.
When crafted, these recipes will yield a fantastic Socket-O-Matic. Each of these items is able to add up to a certain number of sockets to an equipment. Please read their descriptions carefully before use for best results. These are single-use items.
Ingredients New and Old
The following items are also now available at the Fair Exchange. You will need these items in order to craft Socket-O-Matics.
The Secret Ingredient contains a very rare substance that the Traveler has collected himself! Sketchy Stamps can also be added to your Stamp Collection, and you may notice them being asked for in Quests soon as well. Each of these items will have unlimited stock. Item Upgrade Tickets may still be obtained in the Tourney Shop, and have had their cost reduced to 500 VP, down from 875 VP.
As the Traveler has always accepted a combination of FD and FC as payment for upgrades, you will also find The Secret Ingredient for sale in the Furdollar Emporium.
Unfortunately, I am informed that these Socket-O-Matics will not work on the following items:
Sheet Collar of Amasis
Solar Flare Collar
Bow of Fury
Antler Bow and Arrow
I tried to talk the Traveler into allowing it, but he says it simply cannot be done.
Have a crystal in an item and need to get it back? Also from the Fair Exchange, as well as the Furdollar Emporium, you may now pick up a Crystal Remover for a modest price.
A Crystal Remover is a single-use item which allows you to choose which crystal already on an equipment you possess shall be removed. This is mostly useful for expensive or rare crystals.
Remember, you can still replace a crystal that is currently a socket with a new crystal, but the new crystal will destroy the current one unless you remove it first.
Back Again Someday!
The Traveler tells me that his plans include exploring outside of Furvilla to find some new and exciting things to share with you all. He assures me he will return, perhaps unexpectedly, with new and exciting deals... someday.
If you happen to have an outstanding trade with the Traveler at this time, he will honor it before he leaves on his journey. Otherwise, it is now up to your villagers to help you craft Smithing Hammers and Socket-O-Matics!
I look forward to your return, hyena friend!
