Vulcanites are the primary creatures of the VulcanVerse. These formidable beasts accompany the player through their journey in VulcanVerse. Each of them is unique and has skills that can be powered up. All Vulcanites have specific lore and belong to one of the four quadrants.
As of now, there are 20 known Vulcanites with more in development. Each vulcanite has a level and an edition that are important to know. The Level signifies their skill set limits, and their edition indicates how many of them will be available in-world.
In VulcanVerse, your Vulcanite will be your companion and will follow you, unless you tell them not to.
How do I obtain a Vulcanite?
Vulcanites can be purchased or traded for in the Marketplace — on occasion, they can also be won through competitions or quizzes hosted on the Vulcan Forged social media accounts, such as Discord or Telegram (tip — join or follow them all!). Vulcanites will also be able to be summoned in-game by finding various items and scrolls required to bring that vulcanite to life! Vulcanites are NFTs, so you will need to set up your MyForge account to store them. https://myforge.vulcanforged.com/
Vulcanites vary in rarity, from the 500 editions of a level 1 Hades Wolfshadow to the ultra-rare 50-edition Boreas Asterion. This rarity has made the demand for high-level low-edition Vulcanites on the marketplace soar!
There are many Vulcanites — which should I choose?
There are a few things to take into consideration when choosing a vulcanite. - Do you have land in VulcanVerse?
If so then getting your first Vulcanite is key to your journey inside the world. Every account can choose their first lvl 0 Vulcanite from the “my companion” tab in your MyForge account
Bear in mind that Vulcanites are also used in some of the other Vulcan Forged ecosystem games such as Forge Arena and Berserk — in these instances, any vulcanite you own will be able to be used at any time.
I have a high-level Vulcanite — can I use this straight away?
As you level up your land, you will be able to use any Vulcanite from the quadrant your land is based in with a level matching or lower than that of your land level with 100% of the stats available. If you use your vulcanite inside another quadrant a minor decrease in stats will be applied to your vulcanites stats. (-10%)
For example, if you have a level 5 Vulcanite from the Hades quadrant, you must first level your Avatar to level 5 before you can use this Vulcanite in VulcanVerse.
However, as mentioned, you will always be able to use this Vulcanite in other Vulcan Forged games and dApps without any restrictions.
What do Vulcanites do?
In almost all situations, Vulcanites can perform the same core tasks, though the ability of each Vulcanite varies. Vulcanites have stats for each of these tasks. In VulcanVerse, Vulcanite tasks are as follows:
⦁ Attack (Battle) — if in battle mode, your Vulcanite can fight other players’ Vulcanites. This will earn you Lava — more if you win, but still a little if you lose.
⦁ Forage — send your Vulcanite out foraging. Distance traveled to a foraging spot can be limited depending on both the level of your Vulcanite and their individual foraging stat, as can the time it takes to forage and the likelihood of finding a rarer item. Items can include PYR pits and NFT items.
⦁ Espionage — your Vulcanite can spy on plots owned by other players with the hope of retrieving a blueprint for a new item or asset for you to use in your build. If a plot is defended by a Vulcanite, this task can be made more difficult, but again, each Vulcanite has an espionage stat that dictates how well they can spy.
⦁ Defend — other landowners will send their Vulcanites out to spy too. They could come to your plots to take blueprints for assets that you have worked to obtain. The way to stop them? Set a Vulcanite to defend your plot. Each Vulcanite can defend one single plot.
For each of the above, it’s often a benefit to check and be aware of the stats for each Vulcanite — as if you have more than one Vulcanite you’ll want to ensure you have the best Vulcanite for the job at hand. Vulcanite stats rise with level — a level 3 Vulcanite will generally have better stats than a level 1 Vulcanite, though there are some exceptions to this rule.
