If you are using a normal eskYou will only be able to create a new esk with the same or overlapping/adjacent boundary and the same biome as its creator. If you want a boundary far from your original esk's, you must use multiple Transformations to gradually move towards your goal or receive a Transformation performed by someone with a boundary closer to your goal.
If you are using an AbnormalYou will be able to create an esk with any boundary or biome, it does not need to be the same as its creator. Lore-wise, this Transformation still needs to take place in the boundary and biome that will be assigned to the new esk.
You can use your Transformation to give a MYO slot to another playerYou will need to make sure we receive their MYO information with your request either by including it in your comment or having them reply. You are welcome to gift the MYOs you generate to anyone in the group and you can also raffle them off to players as long as there is no entry fee (this includes requiring payment, bartering, artwork, etc). Please submit Transformation raffles to the Advertisements folder. You can only raffle off Transformation slots that you have already earned, not future slots. Please use TF raffling in an altruistic manner to share with the community and not for personal gain, thank you!
You can swap Transformations with another playerThis is helpful if you are trying to get into a new biome or boundary. If you do a Transformation swap with another player you will both give the MYOs you generate with your esk to each other. Trading Transformations cannot include money or non-esk adoptables, attempting to make players pay for Transformations is not permitted. These MYOs are a free reward for group participation and they will continue to remain free to all players.
You can swap Transformations for existing esk charactersYou can now trade a Transformation slot to a player in exchange for an existing esk character. These swaps can only involve esk characters that are in the Esk-Masterlist, non-TWWM adoptables or esk that are not yet in the masterlist cannot be swapped for Transformations.
note: modifications such as familiars, accessories, and enchantments are not included in transformations and need to be purchased separately using the Energy Exchange. These changes in manifestation represent the growth of the esk over time; once your character earns growth points they will be able to begin expanding their form and abilities.
Players at Tree level (2500AP) or higher can integrate an elemental power into their Transformation.Elemental power can affect the appearance of an esk holistically, please read the elementals guide before creating your MYO design.
Add Elemental Power
+200GP to the Transformation tier costAdd the extra GP cost to your total to include the elemental trait in the new MYO.
MYO must clearly display the elemental power in their design.
You can only include one elemental power during Transformation. If you wish to add additional elements to an esk you may do so later on using the Energy Exchange.
When you convert an esk to an Abnormal you must make a change to either their origin (turn a trespasser into a traveler or vice versa) or to their boundary and biome. Change the origin, change the biome, or both! Changing the boundary is optional depending on the circumstances.
300GPunlimited uncommon traits
unlimited rare traits
unlimited nature features
and includes traits that are derived from their previous form (ex: if they were an object, then you can include elements of that object in their design without having to add an accessory modification)
if you are doing an Abnormal Transformation on an existing esk you are allowed to change aspects of their ID info including their origin, nature, boundary, biome, and size.
Esk that are re-transformed into Abnormals must have a secondary origin — they cannot simply be "Abnormal" they must be Abnormal Traveler or Abnormal Trespasser.
Performing Transformations is the only way to obtain crystal nature features for your eskcrystals can be in typical crystal shapes.
they may also be in unnatural shapes like hearts, spheres, or gems.
there is no other way to obtain crystalline forms in the game, so this is a special opportunity!
it must be added as a single crystal or cluster of crystals and not cover large areas of the body.
crystals are the only nature feature that an esk can carry outside of their biome, this perk does not apply to the other rewards listed here.
Normal minerals and rocks
These can also be obtained in the EE, but you do have the option of earning them here
These features are normally only available as mutations, but you are able to earn them here if you are doing your Transformation to give a MYO to someone else without being part of a swap.amber with or without preserved specimens inside
animal's nests in trees (these may need to be reviewed on a case by case basis, please feel free to note ahead of time if you wish!) examples: birds, squirrels, wasps, spiders, etc.
coral (non-living specimen)
it must be added as a single unit or cluster and not cover large areas of the body. These rewards cannot be used to replicate Abnormal mutations like horns or wings!
HOW TO SUBMIT A TRANSFORMATION REQUEST
Please make sure to provide a sketch that displays the ideas and rough concept for your esk design and get a first approval by us before creating or commissioning a masterlist ready image. While we do need to see the final image to fully approve the design, this will help avoid unnecessary inconveniences, because there is always a chance that we might have to ask you to change or adjust parts of your design and we would prefer to do so when it is still in sketch phase. We hope that this measure will help to prevent uncomfortable situations for your or your commissioned artist and will aid in creating a smooth and fast approval process.
Thank you very much!
