Previous July Event Information

As had been mentioned within the July event news for 2020, all mechanics relating to July's past storylines and quests have been retired. The Firefly Shop is retired, and the Firefly currency is retired as well. We are debating on creating a conversion system to convert Fireflies to Silver Beetles. If one is added, we will announce it this weekend.

All items that we could shuffle have been moved from one shop to another, and all previous storyline items were added to Tefnut's Temple (now Tefnut's Memories). We listed some items in July 2021's development update, but here's an extra list.

* The following items have been relocated from the Firefly Shop to Tefnut's Memories: Abaddon Skies, all sets of "Celestial Wings", Apollyon's Grace, Menhit.
* All items that were removed from Tefnut's Memories (listed in the July 2021 development update) have been added to the new Draco Demiurge Exchange: Celestial Horn Crown, all "Celestials" decors, all Shard Growths, Interstellar Wing Bands.
* The Frivolous Apedemak decor has been relocated from the Oasis to Tefnut's Memories and is now available for the duration of July at a price of 4000 SB.
* All generic Celestial-themed backgrounds and decors from the Firefly Shop have been relocated to the Draco Demiurge Exchange. Any backgrounds and decors left from the Firefly Shop that are African-themed will be introduced to the game through other sources within the next development update.
* Tefnut's Memories no longer uses Meteorite Shards, all Meteorite Shard prices have been converted to Silver Beetles. All items in Tefnut's Memories cost Silver Beetles except for the base, mane, and marking applicators, which still cost Meteorite Shards.
* All future special items and unique applicators will appear in the Draco Demiurge Exchange instead of Tefnut's Memories.

July Event - Premise

This year, we're laying down the foundations for the new Celestial event. You can still gather Meteorite Shards while you explore the African lands. These Meteorite Shards become a new special form of "energy".

Starting immediately on July 1st at 00:00am LDT in future years, you will be able to access Celestial Explore, where you can use the charged Meteorite Shards to move across the space-time. A new map will open, which we will expand upon every year or so to add in new zones. This year, you will be able to access the world of the Draco Demiurge - the Draco Constellation.

Celestial Explore is not affected by Earth's day and night cycles, nor is it affected by dry and wet seasons.

Each explore step in Celestial Explore costs 5 Meteorite Shards. You can battle and encounter alien beings native to this zone in order to collect a new currency, Axion Cores. Battles use normal energy and do not deplete your Meteorite Shards.

Speaking of battles, there's something a little special this month. Each normal alien enemy that you encounter in Celestial Explore can count towards a hidden bar. When you defeat and win against 10 alien enemies, you will then encounter a boss enemy. This boss enemy cannot be skipped—even if you click past them, the next enemy encounter you get in Celestial Explore will always be a boss.

You can use Lucky Feet on normal alien enemies, but not boss enemies. The bosses are powerful, but they do give out better rewards. Whether you win or lose against a boss, the counter will restart again. You can build this counter up and cycle through it endlessly throughout the duration of the event.

The battles do not have to be sequential, either. If you win against a normal enemy, then lose, then win again, your counter will still go up and will not be interrupted or affected by your loss. You do not have to win 10 battles in a row to encounter a boss.

Going back to the new currency, Axion Cores can be spent in the Draco Demiurge Exchange shop, which also unlocks upon reaching Tier 1 of the Meteorite Shards collected bar.

This currency is also necessary to enter the Celestial Raffle, which is available when the Meteorite Shards collected bar reaches Tier 2.

There is no new lore or storyline this year. We needed to introduce new mechanics and refresh the event's premise first. We will slowly build upon this world each year, like we used to do in the old days of Lioden.

July Event - Tiers of the Meteorite Shards Bar

The bar is a global collective of all players gathering them on the site.

Tier 0

As soon as the July event starts, Celestial Explore is unlocked, which is available on the Event page.

Tier 1

Tier 1 unlocks the Draco Demiurge Exchange, which can also be found through the Event page. This new shop contains both new and old backgrounds and decors. There are no tiers to this shop, everything is available to purchase as soon as it unlocks.

A screenshot from the Draco Demiurge Exchange shop.

Tier 2

Tier 2 unlocks the Celestial Raffle, which is unchanged from last year. The mechanics are identical to previous years.

Every 12 hours, a new lioness will appear with a base, eye colour, and a marking that are unique to this month! You can pay 5 Axion Cores for a chance to impress her.

There will be a 50/50 rotation of Type 1 and Type 2 Celestial lionesses. There is no set order, it is random which type will be generated.

Type 1 will have the Dawn base (new for 2021), Stellar eyes (new for 2021), and a random Celestial, Leonid, Sidereal, Skyward, or Sunset marking in any slot.
Type 2 will have the Celestial, Leonid, Sidereal, Skyward, Stratosphere, Sunrise, or Sunset base, Dawn, Draconid, Galaxy, Starshine, or Sunglow eyes, and a random Stratosphere marking (new for 2021).

A mockup of a Dawn-based lioness with Stellar eyes.

Dawn is a Red Light Countershaded Special base and is tied to Dusky skin. It is from this suggestion—it fits the subtle Celestial lioness theme as well as the new colour palette of the Draco Constellation. Thank you, Dal 1st Gen Heavy F1-F9 (#149529), for the design!

Stellar eyes are a new Celestial Raffle eye colour. They have been added as a factor for Cosmic eyes, on the same side as Dawn (so to get Cosmic, you must breed a Cosmic/Galaxy/Jasper-eyed lion to a Cosmic/Dawn/Draconid/Starshine/Stellar/Sunglow-eyed lion).
Stellar Genetics: 50% Stellar, 20% Sapphire, 10% Saffron, 10% Tyrian, 5% Dawn, 5% Galaxy

Stratosphere markings are the new Celestial Raffle marking set. The shapes are as follows!
* Stratosphere Feline (4)
* Stratosphere Lycaon (Heavy Inverted)
* Stratosphere Undertone
* Stratosphere Vitiligo (5)

Tier 3

Tier 3 unlocks the "Murder Stone"—or, as we will call it from now on, the One-Way Portal. Mechanic-wise, it is unchanged from last year, and is identical to previous years.

When you give up a lion, you will receive a wonderful reward for sending the lion to the Celestial world. Rewards are the same as they have been, and are randomised as usual. Remember that we cannot bring back a lion you've sent on accident. There are many confirmations, though. It's best to give special names to lions that you intend to send through the portal.

To send a lion through the portal, they cannot be pregnant, nursing cubs, in a reverse breeding, set as a broodmother, offered in a trade, offered in a raffle, on a trade cooldown, cannot be frozen, cannot be secured, cannot be hunting, and cannot be patrolling. Cubs cannot be given up. Even if you chase a lioness's cubs, the mother is still considered as nursing until 5 days of cooldown pass.

The One-Way Portal does not affect your pride leader's karma.

General and Extra Event-Related Content

New in the Oasis
The new background in the Oasis this year is M87* Supermassive Black Hole, inspired by the recent data flow.

Crafting and Gems
Under Decor Crafting in Monkey Business, crafting will be available right away. This month's favoured gems are Celestite, Jasper, Labradorite, Meteorite, Moonstone, and Peridot.

We have not expanded on gem crafting in 2021 due to the event rehaul workload. We will focus on this area next year, with a new base, eye colour, mane colour, and new decors based on the new gems (Howlite and Star Ruby).

The new Comet Shard, Prismatic Scale, and Space Rock items will be craftable next year. For now, you can sell them for SB to Monkey Business, or just collect them!

Wiki Information
Our Wiki Team will be updating the July event wiki page with all new content and information as soon as possible.

The Wiki Team has also created a new Retired Events page, which hosts a link to the retired July event, if any newcomers or older players alike would like to reminisce on older times.

A Reminder of July's Combo Base
This is your yearly reminder that the Pulsar base can be bred again! What's unique about Pulsar is that it can ONLY be bred during the month of July, with the following factor bases.

Base Factor 1: Arctic, Pulsar
Base Factor 2: Anjeer, Blazing, Inferno, Prune, Pulsar

Outside of July, you can only breed Pulsar x Pulsar to produce more Pulsar lions.

Keep in mind that Pulsar is not technically affected by or tied to the event. Whether you participate in the event or not, you can breed for Pulsar using its factors starting immediately on July 1st at 00:00am LDT up until July 31st at 11:59pm LDT. Again, outside of this timeframe, you can only achieve Pulsar by breeding Pulsar x Pulsar, or using Crunchy Worms on Pulsar lionesses.

Another Look at Interstellar

A mockup of an Interstellar-based lioness. It is a Black Dark Solid Special base.

As a reminder, the Interstellar base is applied using the Interstellar Remnants applicator. This applicator can be found while exploring in normal African biomes, and only if you come across a successful Meteorite Shard encounter. It is a very rare drop, so if you find it, congratulations!

You can also earn this applicator by completing the Journey to Vredefort Crater. This epic quest can only be taken during the month of July via the Adventuring page within Crossroads. Once you take this quest, you can finish it at any time of the year. There is no time limit for finishing the quest. However, once you complete the quest, that's it—you cannot take it again, it is once per account.

Check out the Journey to Vredefort Crater guide on our official Lioden wiki!

Extra Information

In the following days, we will upload the Dawn base mutation files and fix various art bugs, including the new Draconid eye files that seem to have been overwritten with the old version for various stages. We will include that list of fixes in the August news post as a summary, but the work will be done this week.

Thank you for listening to our concerns about the event and making adjustments, we appreciate all the effort you go to for us. But I am a little bummed that the apps aren't purchasable for SB or Shards anymore and are suddenly no longer in the shop at all

to clarify-
I sold all of my GB for SB, to buy the apps since they upped the price to like, 15 k SB per.

So whilst I was at work, my GB all sold and I stocked up on SB.
Came back from work, noticed the change, that they turned to shards to purchase instead, and now they aren't even available in the shop anymore...

I'm thinking they are now going to make them purchasable later using Axion cores -

but now I've bought GB with IRL money, to get an app which I no longer can buy with SB...
it's not like I can refund it now, can I ?
