Craftable Decors

Starting now, you can find recipes in the game you can learn and use. This will unlock the recipes to be crafted in your Hoard / Crafting tab, where you'll be able to create whatever you learned, as long as you have the required materials!

If you already know the recipes but still find more of them, you can always trade them with other players or even sell to the Raccoon for a small price. We have added 13 craftable items today, but of course, there will be many more to come in future updates!

Recipe: Backgrounds

Recipe: Scenery

Recipe: Foliage

Recipe: Trinkets / Objects

Recipes for the following Backgrounds & Decors can be found at the same time as when you'd usually find a cave building item from an explore encounter:

Old Railway
15x Large Branch, 15x Large Leaf, 15x Large Rock

Burrows Among the Roots
15x Large Branch, 15x Large Leaf, 15x Large Rock

Scattered Foliage [Green]
4x Large Leaf

4x Large Branch

Scattered Rocks
10x Large Rock

Large Rocks Decor
15x Large Rock

Mossy Branch
10x Large Branch, 5x Large Leaf

Recipes for the following Decors can be found occasionally while digging for a bone in an explore encounter:

Scattered Bones
10x Bone

Bone Decor
5x Bone

Recipes for the following Decors can be found occasionally when offering an Acorn to various animals in explore:

Northern Red Oak Sapling
6x Acorn

White Oak Sapling
6x Acorn

Expression Decor

Expression: Pfflrp can be found on a rare occasion when you lick the Mountain Toad ;D

Scars Trophies:

On Wolvden, after you reach level 10, you will begin finding trophies when you battle enemies. From now on, scar decorations are part of those trophies! A total of 40 scars have been added to the possible trophy pool, and tied to unique enemies. This means that only battling a large Bear will grant you the Face scar - likewise fighting a herd of hooved animals with their trampling hooves might earn you the Forehead scar! Have fun discovering the scars and their sources! We do plan to add more in the future - and battles won't be the only way to get scar decorations!

Please remember that many scars have Left and Right versions - and thus, they might not be visible on some stages (ie. Scar: Shoulder [Right] won't show on the Adult Default pose).

Scar: Bite
Scar: Cheek
Scar: Eye - Large [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Eye - Medium [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Eye - Small [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Eyeless [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Face
Scar: Forehead
Scar: Front Leg [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Front Paw [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Hind Leg [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Lip
Scar: Muzzle
Scar: Nose
Scar: Nose Bridge
Scar: Nose Bridge [High]
Scar: Nose Bridge [Low]
Scar: Ear [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Foot
Scar: Ripped Leg [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Ripped Mouth
Scar: Scratched Face
Scar: Scratched Front Leg [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Scratched Side
Scar: Scratched Thigh [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Scratched Upper Leg [Left] / [Right]
Scar: Shoulder [Left] / [Right]

New encounters:

Two new rare encounters were added to all biomes across explore. One is Egg, a wolf created during our teaser stream before we launched Early Access and viewers on the stream really liked her - it's a small... Easter Egg. The second encounter is Tala, perhaps she decided to give you a chance for a little payback after the tutorial battle..?

Quality of Life tweaks and additions:

  • The Grove now has an Auto-Refund system. For an hour after purchase, if you change your mind or otherwise just decide you don't want it, you will be able to return that item for a GC refund, providing it has not been used or traded away.
  • The difficulty of the hunting quests given out by the snake has been lowered. Hopefully this feels more in balance now.
  • The questing snake has also been adjusted in terms of when you can take a new quest. Previously, if you took a quest the day before and completed it the next day, you wouldn't be able to take a new quest after completing it until the next rollover. Now, this is triggered when the quest is taken - not completed. So if you take a quest one day, and turn it in the next day, you'll be able to take another quest immediately after turning it in.  Keep in mind that this update is not retroactive.  If you completed a quest before the update was released, you will need to wait until rollover for the questing change to be in effect.  Anyone that waits until after the update was released to complete a quest will be able to take another quest properly.
  • A small visible indicator has been added to wolf pages to show when a wolf has had its fertility adjusted with items. It will display either 'Reduced by items' or 'Boosted by items' beside the fertility of the wolf if this is in effect.

You can now bookmark pages around WD! Click on the icon on the top right of any page to bookmark that page. Bookmarks are automatically pinned until there are 10 pinned bookmarks. On the sidebar you can see the list of your pinned bookmarks and a link to your full bookmark page. Click the double arrows to access and edit all your Bookmarks - remember to click "Update" button to store changes!

And finally, to summarise, here are a list of the small changes, tweaks and bug fixes we've had between now and the last development update!

* Clicking the [...] menu on chat posts will now highlight the post and make it "sticky" so the menu doesn't immediately close as chat auto-scrolls (requires refresh)
