God ‘Buffs’: What Are They?

NFTs That Offer Perks & Boosts Throughout The Ecosystem Explained

Vulcan Forged NFTs aren’t only pretty pictures. They each come with utility. Gods play a crucial role within the Vulcan Forged ecosystem. You can gain various buffs and blessings within multiple games by owning a god. Gods will also increase your staking rewards for both land staking and the node program. And some say Gods can even trigger airdrops!

This article will cover the first batch of God buffs for all 24 Gods. More buffs will be introduced later as soon as VulcanVerse or the other games are ready for this. So please don’t worry if you don’t see an expected buff we previously mentioned listed for your God right now. We will start implementing with viable buffs only at present.

Default God buffs

God’s grant special buffs. These buffs can be applied to your in-game avatar, your game-play, or even your land and nodes! All gods share some primary and default perks. Let’s summarize:

  • 10%-70% off marketplace fees for any Titan/Olympian. These are non-stackable. For example, if you have nurtured your baby Ares to level 7, you will receive a 70% discount on marketplace fees.
  • 10% -70% extra $LAVA rewards when $LAVA is earned by playing games. These are non-stackable.
  • 10% -70% extra XP when XP is earned by playing games. These are non-stackable.
  • 10%-70% extra rewards from any staked PYR for 1x plot. Zeus and Cronus will buff up to 3 plots.
  • Any god will increase the base generation amount for node rewards by 5%. Zeus or Cronus will increase the base generation amount by 15%. Gods are not stackable. This buff applies to Cronus nodes, Demeter nodes, and Typhon nodes (read more about nodes in our series of articles starting here).

Important disclaimer

When we announced the currently existing God buffs about a year ago, VulcanVerse was still in the early alpha phase, therefore it was hard to predict the time needed to implement these buffs. Our game design team discussed all the God buffs listed inside this document very carefully and approved the buffs. We will slowly implement these buffs as all of them can be implemented. The ones that are not presently viable will be added to your God later. Eventually, all the formerly promised buffs will slowly be integrated also.

Of course, it will be possible to unlock even more buffs or more powerful ones when you upgrade your God.

Watch Out For The Combo Bonus

Some Gods share certain things with each other, such as common ancestry. These relationships may give extra buffs- some of these can be very powerful.
