Vulcanites 101 — Beastly NFTs
Vulcanites are the varied beasts that inhabit VulcanVerse. From minotaurs to dryads, demons to sabretooth tigers and mammoths, VulcanVerse’s lore tells the story of these creatures.
Vulcanites have various functions in VulcanVerse — they will do battle for you, find rare and interesting objects and artifacts, practice espionage in the hope of uncovering blueprints for your build and defend your plot from opposing Vulcanites who are attempting to spy on your plots.
They can also be used in other Vulcan Forged ecosystem games and dApps, such as Forge Arena and Berserk.
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 at https://market.vulcanforged.com — 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 are NFTs, so you will need a compatible cryptocurrency wallet to store them
Vulcanites vary in rarity, from the 500 editions of a level 1 Hades Wolfshadow to the ultra rare 50 editions Boreas Asterion
This rarity has made the demand for high-level low-edition Vulcanites on the marketplace soar with a Level 6 Numatox (50 editions) selling for a whopping 195.000 $VET, a current dollar value of $13.650
There are many Vulcanites — which should I choose?
There are a few things to take into consideration. Do you have land in VulcanVerse? If so, it would benefit you to obtain a Vulcanite from that same quadrant. If you are just starting out, your land will be at level 1. You can only use a Vulcanite that
a) Comes from the same quadrant as your land, and
b) Matches the level of your land, or has a level below that of your land.
Bear in mind that Vulcanites are also used in Forge Arena and Berserk — in these instances, any Vulcanite will be able to be used.
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.
For example, if you have a level 5 Vulcanite from the Hades quadrant, you must first level your Hades land 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 VulcanVerse?
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 below.
⦁ 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.
Each Vulcanite has an attack statistic, determining how well they will fare in a battle.
⦁ 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. Each Vulcanite, when new, comes with base stats. These stats can be leveled up to a pre-defined maximum.
Some Vulcanites have special abilities — for example, higher-level Vulcanites can even carry your VulcanVerse avatar!
How do I level up my Vulcanite’s stats?
A Vulcanite’s stats can be leveled up through Lava. Lava can be obtained in a number of ways. This includes using your Vulcanite — battling and so on, as well as making use of them throughout the Vulcan Forged eco-system, in Forge Arena and Berserk.
Leveling up a Vulcanites stats unlocks new features like unlocking animated Cards.
