Unique Spotlight – Samin

The half-elven former lover of Anastasia, found true happiness in Indigo.
His elf blood allowing him to live longer than humans, he is likely to live long enough for Indigo to get bored.

Owner: indigo

How To Get: It is in the Uncanny Uniques store. I have a limited number of TDs which I’ll trade for a 1985 card. A 16 card if it is a Unique. Or an upgrade to any of my none 1985 saved cards.

Meaning: At the time I had just got back together with my boyfriend who and I wanted to be able to give him number 2 of the card as he knew how much I love Wallabee! I also wanted to expand Tavern of the Damned series.

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my fifth Unique.

Closing Thoughts: Part of the Tavern of the Damned series. Samin is husband to Indigo. Also, a roleplay character, who was developed by my ex. I wanted to represent the main aspects of the role-playing part of my life.

WallaBee 2.2.5 & 2.2.6 Notes

Hello Collectors!

Version 2.2.5 2.2.6 is now available for iOS in the App Store! Android users will see the update available very soon on the Play Store! The WallaBee team has been working diligently to make your playing experience better with every update. If there is a feature you would like to see, or a pesky bug that we haven’t addressed, we would love to hear from you. Remember to email support with any concerns.

To allow for players to update, there will be a 24 hour drop-free time period beginning now 7:15am, Saturday April 6th (CDT). Expired

Features

  • NEW BRANDING! We have updated the WallaBee logo and various icons within the game. You’ll find all of our beautiful Set Icons updated to a wonderful flat style, along with some icon touchups on your profile page. You’ll also see much more of Benson! What’s not to love there!
  • Collectibles have been added as a new collection type. Jump further down in the blog to read more.
  • Unique Items have been split into various “themed” subsets.
  • Sets are now broken up by generation.
  • Items can now be purchased with “Buy It Now” option from the market without a player listing.
  • Adjusted profile layout.
  • Reorganized Settings page.
  • Various bug fixes.
    • Profile bio doesn’t disappear when viewing from settings page (and no changes are made).
    • Send Message button updated for Return key (line break).
    • “Forever scroll” through the Store.
    • Optimized image loading in the Store
    • Honeycomb balance shows in Market.
    • Unable to send blank messages.

Collectibles

We’re taking a new approach to items that previously lived on your profile page (Branded, Wallagraphic, and Uniques)! You’ll now find a “Collectibles” section on your profile tab that holds all items in WallaBee that don’t fit into a WB-released set.

Similar to how all WallaBee Sets have a circular icon, all Collectibles will have a star-shaped icon. Collectibles will also only show you items and subsets that you have collected, instead of displaying missing ‘gaps’ in your collection. This means that all Collectibles are 100% optional to collect, without the dreaded “x/y” insinuating you have to collect them. Here’s a quick breakdown of the various new categories you’ll find within Collectibles.

Exclusive Items

Previously known as WallaBee Uniques, these items are obtained through normal gameplay (foraging, mixing, purchasing in store).

Examples of these are WallaBy, Super Burger, and Wand Of Transformation.

Themed Exclusive Items

An extension of the above, these items are categorized for your convenience by their theme.

Examples of these are Grab Bags, Mixers, and Branded Items.

Wallagraphic Items

This set no longer has a x/y view. Not interested in collecting these? No worries!

Unique Items

100% Player or Staff distributed items. Can be commissioned by players when available.

Examples include Saint Nicholas, Yorkshire Rose, and Jack Frost.

Themed Unique Items

Just like the above, but themed into smaller player-owned (or staff-owned) subsets.

All Themed Unique subsets will contain a rainbow border around the edge of the star, with a customized icon within.
This helps distinguish a player-owned set from a Themed Exclusive set

Examples include BAU items, Texas Music Legends, and Fantastic Creatures.

Generations

One issue that newer players have when creating an account is the sheer amount of items there are to collect. The Sets page can be really intimidating with over 170 sets listed. So in order to help our organizing efforts, improve app performance, and ease newer players into collecting in smaller chunks… we’ve split the long list of sets into “bite-sized” bits. With this update, each generation contains 50 sets. We know this will take some getting used to for our current players, but we are sure the transition will be quick to learn! Our website (and ItemBrowser) also reflects this update to help keep consistency.

We look forward to adding even more updates soon, including the ability to save variants! It’s coming, don’t worry. 😉

Deeply protective towards all under her roof she took Indigo in, nurtured her in the old ways and Sired her into her own family.

Owner: indigo

She taught her what it is to be a vampire and taught her to trust again. Indigo also imparted some of her powers to Ana, enabling her to have angel wings. She became her mother in a way.

New Branding Leak

Hello Collectors,

Happy Monday! As we get closer to rolling out the next app update, we want to take you behind the scenes and show off some upcoming changes. However, in order to do that, we first need to leak some information about the future look of WallaBee! That’s right, WallaBee will be receiving a new coat of paint and a brand new logo.

 

After 7 years of being on the market, we felt that a facelift was in tall order. While the old logo was great and served its purpose well over the past seven years, we believe it is time to highlight WallaBee’s fun, lighthearted style with an updated look. Along with a new logo, WallaBee will also see some visual updates in the app that help bring this game up to our artistic standards and pave a route for the app to continue moving seamlessly into the 2020’s. You’ll begin seeing some of these visual changes occur on the blog and website over the next few days, with some specific leaks through social media.

Meaning: This is in memory of my dad who passed away in 2013.

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my second Unique.
