The Path to Ascension

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 19, 2015, 12:53 PM
Ascended by Painted-Shadow
Every time you or someone else draws your Stryx, you accumulate points called AP (Ascension Points). The more points you get, the closer to Ascension you become, with all its perks and bonuses, and extra breeding slots! You will also gain access to certain activities not available to you before. So let's see how the AP will add up!



Use our AP Calculator to help you!

(Please be aware that there are some errors and missing bonuses in the calculator. These will be updated when we are able.)



STATUS

Your Stryx's status is based on how many Ascension Points you accumulate for them, and the further they can go in the game!

Ascension Statuses



150 AP - Alpha Status
Alpha by Castanetta

10 extra breeding slots
No chance of empty clutches when bred to Alpha and above.
+1 Companion Slot

300 AP - Legendary Status
Legendary by Castanetta

15 extra breeding slots
No chance of empty clutches when bred to Alpha and above. 
+1 Companion Slot


500 AP - Ascended Status
Ascended by Castanetta

Unlimited breeding slots.
No chance of empty clutches. 

For every 150 AP after Ascended Status
Mystery Bag by AlphaStryx
Mystery Bag
You will receive a Random Prize of Baubles, Tokens, or game Items!

BEYOND ASCENDED: ACHIEVEMENTS

There are exclusive trophies you can only earn by reaching these Beyond Ascended AP goals!

1000AP
Jade Ascension Achievement

Jade Ascension Trophy by AlphaStryx


2500AP
Agate Ascension Achievement

Agate Ascension Trophy by AlphaStryx


5000AP
Diamond Ascension Achievement

Diamond Ascension Trophy by AlphaStryx

Post-Ascension Rewards


With each trophy completed, you unlock special additional rewards for your stryx!

Please note that all unlock-able add-ons are bound to the stryx that achieves the trophy unless otherwise stated. All add-on rewards are optional and you may choose to use them at your discretion.

_______________________________________________

Jade Rewards

Upon reaching Jade status your stryx will receive:

One MYO Companion of any type (excluding Microstryxes) that can be applied to the stryx regardless of number of companions currently equipped.
This companion can only be equipped to the stryx that achieves it and is soul-bound, meaning it will stay with the stryx permanently. It can't be removed and will always transfer with the stryx if it changes owners.
+
Your choice of any Common Non-Passable Mutation add-on for the stryx
(No makeover kit required for application, but the rest of the design should remain the same)

_______________________________________________

Agate Rewards

Upon reaching Agate status your stryx will receive:

Your choice of any one Common or Uncommon Marking add-on for the stryx, regardless of number of current markings
+
Choice of Any Tier Non-Passable Mutation add-on (excluding moth) for the stryx
OR
Addition of Soil gene to the base (Soil becomes dom Soil, Snow becomes Sand, Nox becomes mel Soil)
(No makeover kit is required for application of mutation/mark, but the rest of the design should remain the same.)

To clarify, you may choose the Marking + NP Mutation OR the Marking + additional Soil gene in the base.

_______________________________________________

Diamond Rewards

Upon reaching Diamond status your stryx will receive:

Choice of any one Rare Marking add-on for the stryx, regardless of number of current markings
+
Choice of any Tail Type change for the stryx
(No makeover kit is required for application of marking and tail change, but the rest of the design should remain the same.)

You will also receive one (non-sellable) Paradox Mutation that can be applied to any stryx of your choice (makeover kit required to apply to uploaded stryxes).

The link to 'Go here to learn about AP trackers' links to 'Summer Training and Tributes' instead. Is this intentional?

What was the minimum image size for pixel artwork to count for activities? I remember the old guide mentioning somewhere around 400 x 400 pixels. Just wanting to verify if this is still the case! ouo)/

Sorry for the late reply!  The minumum size for Stryx to be to avoid being considered Simplified is 300 x 300 pixels.

Not a Mod here, but I have [a Mod's explanation]!

"Basically this 'mutation' allows for, what would usually be, illegal designs. It doesn't allow for an all out hog wild design, but it does allow for minor rule breaking."

About the sculpture bonus: does it apply to any hand-crafted item that isn't traditional 2D art, even if the item is also 2D? I've been thinking of doing something that would still be 2D, but in another media, and I wanted to know if it would get the appropriate bonuses.

I see those uh, statues as rewards for the higher levels of ascensions, but what happened to the original rewards? I recall one of the highest ones promised us to give our stryx a unique mutation, and things of the sorts, which I thought was really awesome. Is that not the case anymore?
Once our birds have reached Ascended, there is barely any reason to draw them anymore, so those rewards were great because they were not necessary for the gameplay, but really nice bonuses. While those trophies, well.. They're litteraly just an icon posted under our stryx's import.
Will they be implemented later, or was the idea abandoned?

I have a quick question. If I draw a group starter Stryx to add extra stryx AP to my picture, am I allowed to draw a rider for the starter stryx? In my stories a random feral stryx flying around wouldn't make much sense, so I i was curious if I could draw a random background character riding them.

Hi there! I'm setting up my first Stryx tracker and was wondering if I missed it above or in one of the links where you by chance lay out how many AP points needed at minimum to reach each Status? I couldn't find it. >.<;

You may add minor paint/accessories to your Stryx Import.

150 AP - Alpha Status

300 AP - Legendary Status

500 AP - Ascended Status

It is all in the journal!

Let's say, if all 5 slots have been used, will it be refreshed and give total 15 clear slots when reached alpha or 10?
Reply
:iconicefirestarfire:
IcefireStarfire Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
psst not an admin--
you'd get 10 new slots when you go to alpha! (grand total is 15; 'extra' just means adding to the basic 5 begot from EoGs, and slots cannot be 'refreshed' -- once they're used, they're used ;o; )

so using that example,
when you go to legendary, you get 15 new slots added to the 15 you already have from rites (5) + alpha (10), making the grand total = 30

and when you ascend, you can immediately start writing slots off in whatever manner you wish since it's unlimited at ascension!

hope this helps c:

I have a question, like the comic book account AP?
Does he make an account for each frame or all at the same time? 

I'm in doubt

:iconeyeofgalyx:
EyeOfGalyx Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2017
AP counts over the whole image, there is nothing to do with accounts.

:iconkittfurry:
KittFurry Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Sorry, I'm brazilian.

I meant, for example, a comic strip, in which the stryx in the first frame appears full-body, and in the other frame, only his face.

Is the count done for each frame or all if once?
Reply
:iconeyeofgalyx:
EyeOfGalyx Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2017
Basically you will need to break it down per frame. EG:

Frame A
Fullbody+2
coloured+ 2

Frame b:
Headshot +.5

Frame c:
Fullbody:
BG:

Grand total: (Everything that is broken down in the frames above and added together to form the grand total.)

This can be used for AP sheets, character studies, etc, etc, that involve multiple images and headshots, full bodies, etc.

When in doubt, note the group (we are here to help) and give the AP calculator a spin: dracostryx.com/apcalc

Does the AP required for each status stack or do you have to restart each time the stryx moves up?
- 150 for alpha + 150 for Legendary = 300 total
- Or 150 for alpha + 300 for Legendary = 450 total

:iconshinkei-shinto:

It's a running total - so it stacks! It's like the first example that you listed, not the second.

Please go to Spring Status Updates (2017) to request a Status Update! Asking about individual counts here is okay, sometimes, but not full Tracker counts.

I can tell you that you will need to show your multiplication math on the large AP Sheet for it to be easy to count!
