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.
Previously known as WallaBee Uniques, these items are obtained through normal gameplay (foraging, mixing, purchasing in store).
Themed Exclusive Items
An extension of the above, these items are categorized for your convenience by their theme.
This set no longer has a x/y view. Not interested in collecting these? No worries!
100% Player or Staff distributed items. Can be commissioned by players when available.
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
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. 😉
