After some considerations, we’ve decided to release the combat update earlier than we had originally intended, for a few reasons. Firstly we want to make sure you all have enough time to adjust and get in a little practice before the tournament, and secondly, we also need your help in testing the system!
Currently, the system lacks a bit of polish - but this will come later. We’re looking to set the groundwork for now. Notably, a lot of the particularly powerful items may be difficult to come by, and this is intentional. We’ll likely improve the drop rates on these items after the tournament.
Primarily, though, we’d like to ask for a bit of patience while we sort out the numbers throughout the first week or so.
Battle System Feedback
What we’re looking for in this department is information regarding item drops as well as overall balance. If a monster feels too weak, let us know - if an item is too powerful, let us know - that sort of thing. This information will be reported in the Feedback Thread (linked below). While we can make adjustments to values (such as how likely an item is to drop, how much damage an item does, or what sort of stats a monster might have), changing core designs is less likely to happen at this stage, so keep that in mind.
The Feedback Thread is located here:
Battle System Feedback
Battle System Bugs
Now we’re not talking insects here, we’re trying to find for the mean, nasty kinds of bugs that ruin everyone’s fun. Right now we’re looking for things like obvious flaws with mechanics and calculations, but minor issues - such as misspelled descriptions, are useful as well. If anything seems wonky please report it in the thread linked below.
Additionally, if you discover an obvious exploit, please report it and don’t continue to exploit it. We’ve squashed the bugs that we noticed, but a system this big is inevitably going to have more bugs than we could find!
The Bug Report Thread is located here:
Battle System Bug Reports
Battle System Change Log
There will be a lot of changes coming in as we work to use your feedback and bug reports to better balance the system. If you’d like to stay updated on all those goings on then please feel free to check in at the link below!
The Battle Change Log is located here:
Battle System Change Log
To help everyone get started, we’ve added a login tracker on the front page that’ll award Warrior Elixirs and Chocolate Candy, as well as other goodies that you can claim once a day. Unlike the Daily Login Streak, you’ll be able to miss several days and still be able to claim all the rewards. And as long as you claim your rewards 20 times within the duration (expected duration is 40 days) you will still be able to collect the last tier rewards.
Awesome Goodies Are Here!
We also plan to give out a little reward for all of those that have clocked 200+ wins in the old Warrior system! So be on the lookout for that in the future.
Battle Item Shop Stock
Some new Battle related stock has been added to your Village Weapon Shops as well as the Recycle Shop. You’ll find some new basic armour in the Village shops and a few assorted goodies hanging out in the Recycle shop, Isadore is eager to take those Fur Gems off your hands.
Quick Guide for Getting Started
Any items you want to use with the new system you’ll need to convert manually from your inventory. Simply click the item and convert it to get started - remember, you don’t have to convert items that you want to save, and there are definitely perks for hanging on to legacy items so keep this in mind! Any new items created will be created with the new system.
To get started, all you’ll need is some store bought goods - but you can also use the stuff you’ll get in the above login tracker! At the very least, you’ll need to equip a new armour item as well as at least one weapon - though using a full kit will definitely help your chances of winning! From there, all you have to do is click a battleground and you’re good to go! If you get hurt - no worries, just eat some tasty chocolate and you can jump right back into the fray! Tired? Out of charges? Not a problem! Chug back a warrior elixir to have 20 charges restored, just like that! You’ll get some of these for free as well! Happy battling!
And once again, thanks for letting us ramble at you!

Hello once again! Glad to be here today to bring all of you some very exciting news. It’s a long post but it’s worth a read so please bear with us on this one!
We’re hard at work with the warrior update, and while we won’t get into specifics just yet, we’d like to take this opportunity to keep everyone up to date on what to expect as we update to the new system.
First and foremost, durability on items is being dropped entirely for now; this doesn’t mean it won’t be back in the future with further revisions and improvements, but for the time being, it doesn’t mesh well with the new combat systems so we’re disabling it. Players will have significantly more items than previously, and be able to battle more frequently - having to constantly break up combat with repairs would be more of an encumbrance at this stage until the battle system is firmly in place and people have time to figure things out.
Naturally, we’ve thought about how to reward players who’ve spent time trying to reach insane amounts of durability on their existing weapons, and we’ve worked out a method of compensation per the following:
Items with 3x maximum durability will have one socket slot.
Items with 10x durability will have 2 sockets, if possible for that item.
Items with 50x durability will have 130% weapon grade (potency).
Items with 1000x durability will award their owners with a trophy.
The exception is Discourse items, which will always have a minimum potency of 130% as well as a single socket, with slightly higher potency based on the item’s durability.
Potency, Career Inclusions & Sockets
Now you might be wondering what potency itself represents - it’s simply a measure of how effective an item is. 100% potency indicates a standard weapon, while anything higher than that enhances the item’s power (lower numbers reduce its power). Generally speaking, any items that can no longer be obtained and are updated through this system will be the best those items can possibly be; in the case of Discourse items, the power gap between versions will be roughly 5%, so nothing tremendously significant in terms of overall power, but still definitively better than lower durability versions.
Additionally, it’s worth explaining how Blacksmiths (and Tailors, as well as Crafters, which will make items useful for warriors) will work following the update - items will be generated with a potency between 50% and 150%. You can always create items in the upper tiers, but having a higher skilled blacksmith will reduce the chances of creating lower tiered items.
Items over 140% potency will be exceptionally rare. Also, balance testing will be done with items at 100% potency; while items over this value will certainly be helpful, they won’t be strictly necessary to beat all the monsters if you equip your warriors appropriately.
Sockets are similar - occasionally, items will be found or created with socket slots for crystals which enhance those items. An item with high potency and socket slots will be particularly valuable.
And as you can see above, we haven’t forgotten about other careers, as well. Tailors and Crafters can look forward to seeing some new recipes, and Alchemists might find themselves undertaking some new work to assist Warriors.
Item Conversion & Salvage
You will not be required to convert your weapons to the new system. While you won’t be able to use them for combat if you choose not to convert them to the new system, you can keep them as trophies and trade them between players; they can be converted at any time following the update.
-Items with 3x maximum durability will have one socket slot.
-Items with 10x durability will have 2 sockets, if possible for that item.
-Items with 50x durability will have 130% weapon grade (potency).
-Items with 1000x durability will award their owners with a trophy.
Higher tiers receive what is listed and below, for example, turning in an item with 1000x durability will reward a trophy along with 130% grade weapon with 2 sockets.
As an aside, items that don’t meet your expectations, or aren’t upgrades, will be able to be scrapped with the new system. Scrapping items will give you raw materials used to craft crystals to improve your gear.
The warrior update isn’t just intended to create a more interesting battle system, but to also offer new means of progression and enhance the economy. The intention is to make existing items, like the various coins, be available in the same capacity as they currently are - but players who choose to invest heavily in their warriors and take on tougher foes may find better yields. Higher level monsters can be stronger, but not always; effectively, it’ll be risk vs. reward, with player progression essentially pushing the odds in your favor over time.
When the change is ready to roll out, Warriors will be able to store more charges, which will mean lots more available battle time. A pretty simple change, but one I think everyone should appreciate; notably, more dangerous battlegrounds may use more charges to attempt. The system will also feature various special battlegrounds - some which may only be available at certain times.
Additionally, we expect to see new abilities for warriors become available pretty regularly, so keep an eye out for them as well to keep a competitive edge!
Explore Items & Events
Soon Explorers will have a good chunk of new resources available to them; these will be exclusive to the new event system. Please note that we expect at this stage for events to begin to be cycled as to not flood the economy with specific items. We’re looking at you, Moonlit Wuff...So you can expect to see events come and go over time from this point forward.
Unfortunately, all this means that we’ll need to bring the current pool of events offline for a few days while we get everything added. The current batch of events will be offline in approximately 48 hours from this post. We cannot provide a specific time-frame for them to return, but when they do, expect to see some new interesting things!
Please note that we are currently in the process of balance testing and adding new items so there is currently no solid ETA for the update as of yet and details could change during this process. But we are really looking forward to debuting this wonderful new system!

As some of you may have already noticed, you now have the option to recycle your items through the Discard feature in Inventory and Quick Stock! The shop and it's items are still under construction right now but you can work on collecting Fur Gems while we work on getting the shop stock ready for release.
You can find the Recycling Shop link below (and in your Town Hall menu). Another announcement will be made in the future when we are ready to start adding things for you to buy, but for now you can check in to see your Fur Gem amount.

New & Upcoming Features
And now we have a few little developments we’d like to chat with all of you about! We’re very excited for all that is coming to Furvilla in the next couple months or so and just wanted to share a bit of that with all of our wonderful users (that’s you guys by the way).
Monthly Paintie Contests
For those of you that like to dabble in the creative we will now be running monthly themed Paintie contests! Head on over to the threads below to check out the info for the April contest.
April Paintie Contest
April Paintie Contest Discussion
Explore Class Update
In hopes to break up the monotony of all that clicking, we’re bringing you even more clicking! But hopefully it will be a bit more exciting now...Explore will be featuring random pop up events so keep a look out and be careful not to skip over anything fun!
And in the near future we will also be hosting a thread where all of you can offer up your own user created events for consideration. Be on the lookout for that if you are interested in trying your hand at event creation.
Upcoming Warrior Class Update
We are currently working hard and hammering away behind the scenes to iron out all of the fun and amazing things that are going to come along with this update! It’s going to be a big one with a whole lot of changes but in the end I think everyone will be very happy with what we’re bringing to the table! Here are a few little tidbits for you guys to snack on in the meantime.
-Durability will be a thing of the past! (for those of you that worked to get high durability weapons, don’t worry, the new system will reward this)
-Blacksmiths are about to be a whole lot busier soon so we hope you’ve been training yours up!
-Crafters and Tailors should also be prepared to learn a few new tricks as well.
-Warriors are going to be training extra hard, something big is coming, and they need to be prepared to adapt to these changes (maybe they'll even find some new toys to play with too...)
Upcoming New Feature: Recycling and Fur Gem Shop
A lot of you have been asking for a nice item sink and we have heard you! We are currently in the process of putting together a Recycling system that will pair with a shop full of fun little goodies for you to spend those hard earned Fur Gems on. More details will become available as we get closer to releasing this feature but we hope you’re as excited as we are about it.
Upcoming Quest System Revamp
One more project we will be diving headfirst into is revamping the Quest system, we’d love to see this feature thrive and be more enjoyable for our users. So we’ll be working hard toward that goal and we look forward to bringing you all something exciting in the future!
And lastly, all Fur Dollar refunds for Inventory/Storage have been given out. If you did not get a refund and you think you were owed one, or if you think you were refunded an incorrect amount, please file a report at the bottom of the page so that we can take a look at the logs.
Thanks for letting me ramble at you all again!

April brings with it lots of flowers, rain, and new FD Emporium pets!
First on the list is the Meep, an adorable little chick just waiting to go home with you!
Next in our line of elemental kitties is the Gaiacat, all blossoming and ready!
Fans of dogs rejoice to see the Doberpup!
Sheep aren't about to be left out, now available as the Baa!
The Snell is up next! Maybe those Racing Snell will build a track someday.
Boxes are available in the FD Emporium, and super rares have been listed too for folks who don't like random draw boxes, and to set a ceiling for their price. These mini-pets have a 5 day breeding cool-down. They will be able to breed until May 1, 2017, at which point they will become unbreedable.
The Inventory is in the process of being converted to FurCash-based slots. Those of you who purchased slots with FurDollars will get a happy refund soon - perfect for stocking up on some new April mini-pets! Who ever said tax refund season couldn't be fun?
Bugs are swarming and swarming and swarming! Some of you have already gotten your paws on a couple bugs already, but they're posed to take over fairly soon. Keep your windows and doors closed, spring is about to arrive in full force with an incoming update to the Explore class this April!
