Do we know what is the new cap for gem mine and gold pit?

Overall it seems a nice update', nothing special, just some hype for the Guild Pet.

The update will contain a new guild mechanic. Guild donations will be completely removed! The achievement “Big Spender” will be changed later!

Now every guild starts with room for 50 members!
Guild fights now cost 100 gold (the player who declares the fight pays the fee) while raids now cost 10k gold (the player who starts the raid pays the fee). Same for the catapult…you load it with your own mushrooms.

Here’s how the new guild mechanic works:

Every player adds his/her personal skill points to your guild total. These points count towards one of the two upgrades (gold or XP) and can be upgraded by clicking the + icon. The maximum is 500.

(new screenshot, refresh the page so it shows 1-10)


Every player upgrades the total by clicking the + icon and spending his/her gold and mushrooms. The maximum is 500.
The skill points of all players are added, resulting in the group skill.
Divide the group skill by 5 to get the percental bonus of the instructor or treasure.
If a player leaves the guild his/her personal points are gone.

Changes to current guilds: your guild bank (gold and mushrooms) will be split into equal parts among members, rounding up!

We've added this new mechanic to deal with cheaters who create many illegal multis at server launch and donate gold to their guild. Now cheaters are either forced to leave the multis in the guild and we can find and lock them (and punish the guild) or they have to leave but lose their skill points and no longer have an advantage for cheating.

Seems a nice update with a little surprise at the end (guild pets for 2019). If we get new pets (and not shadow ones), it will be a great update and I want to congratulate Playa Games for it! Also I'm really curious how the new pets mechanics will work

Overall 2018 has been a good year, two new dungeons (there's no more room for another dungeons, so I would like to believe that the next dungeons-related update will focus on a new 'world), the new remastered version... hope to see more big updates (like guild pets) in 2019

About the new guild mechanics, I didn't quite understand how that works - will the max upgrades still be 200%? And you say that the guild donations will be completely removed - but then you mention "by clicking the + icon and spending his/her gold and mushrooms."

By the way, when can we expect the new dungeon to be live on old servers?

EDIT: I'd like to suggest you that in upcoming festive occasions (like Christmas and SFGame birthday) where we have all events up, you would also add the black friday event into it (only black gems).

What about the current guild bonuses? Will they be lost and we will have to upgrade them with the new skill points ?

The old version on Steam hasn't updated properly. New dungeons missing, no pet food storage area (pet food acquired just disappears!), Dr A not working, no doubt various other problems.
Is this going to be fixed? It seems to be working on the remastered version, but I really, really prefer the old one....

Thanks for key info guys!

Now, on to pet food change...

While I welcome the change, I have a feeling that one small change would make a huge difference. Instead of needing to click on pet we want to feed first and then clicking the "feed" arrow, it would be much simpler to be able to drag and drop food to the desired pet. Maybe even implement the option to automatically switch to corresponding pet panel when you pick up certain food with your mouse.

Speaking of the pet feeding, it would save one click if the highest level feedable pet was selected, rather than the first one... It will take me quite some time, before I will feed that pet ;-). But yes - enabling drag and drop pet food (as it worked previously) would be even better and save me 2 clicks, so I dont have to first select the habitat and next select the pet.
