    Since last publish the Zoo decay is alot slower. Now only since then is it alot easyer to maintain Tier 11. We also keep the donation box moving up every day. Today its already standing at 12.5 Million Points.


    So we still have a full Zoo since we filled it months ago. :)

    After the publish i sended out a question in for 5 on friday and today it got answered:



    "What is the difference between the old Zoo point decay rate and the new one?"

    Mesanna checked this one out for me:

    "The decay rate used to be 3% every 24 hours. We have lowered it to 1% every 48 hours."

    I'm a veteran who's been missing out on the last 3 years in UO development. You seem to be a man of knowledge Frarc - perhaps you could write a quick guide to this zoo donation thing?

    Thanks

    - At the East entrance of the Zoo there is a Zoo Donation Box.
    When you open it you get all info what animals or gold you can donate. On the first page you see how much gold total the shard donated. There is a decay every 2 days of 1% every 48 hours. (This is new change since last publish, this is all thanks all people work and complains of the insane decay it was before that we kept showing to the Devs).


    Gold and checks to donate . When you donate the check you can target the check in your backpack. For gold you need to type in how much gold you like to donate.

    For every 15 gold you get 1 point.


    You can also donate certain animals to the Box. This is simple done with transfering your tamed pet and target the blue donation Box.
    Depending on the animal you get points.


    Grey Wolf, Timber Wolf, White Wolf 30
    Slime 45
    Polar Bear 45
    Ki-Rin, Nightmare, Unicorn 250
    Fire Beetle, Giant Beetle, Rune Beetle 300
    Dragon, Drake, White Wyrm 400
    Reptalon 550

    On the next page in the Box you see the total of your own donation points. Personal points will never decay. If you reach enough points you can claim some rewards.

    Best is just a rune marked at the Zoo Box and one at the area where ou like to do taming.Just recall or gate back and forward.My favored is North of Luna with the Unicorn/Kirin spawn. Its got low monster spawn. But if you have a bard/tamer you can tame also at the back of Destard for Drakes.
    As a starting Tamer the Zoo donation is a good way to get taming skills up and at the same time work to get on some rewards and also to maintain our pets at the Zoo. Gold donations are always welcome from the rich people ;)



    Every 1 Million points the Zoo total moves up the Zoo Gets a Tier. Each Tier will gives the Zoo a rare or extinct animal. Tier 11 is the highest you can get too. (11 million points).

    Even with the hard decay Drachenfels is the longest running full zoo on all Shards. Even with the hardest decay rate we managed to keep the Zoo completelty full since we had the Zoo Party. (And it still is). And we hold the record for the highest total points at 22.6 Million points. Currently 13.1 million points.It great we done that and showed that if you pull together anything can be done, even with a smaller shards as Drachenfels.



    You can read all how it happends in the 2 Story's (The Phoenix rises by Cat Crimson and Moonglow Zoo Warming party by Medea).

    This is soo cool. We're the most animal-friendly shard ever! Or... we just have the most tamers on shard.

    BTW, Frarc. I remember, on the old forum, you posted this diagramm with all donations over time on all shard. Would you post it again? Just to see, you know... :D

    Tina Small always took the points on all shards and placed it on the tamers forums. Then i just made a link to there. But since the old forums went *poof* there has no tamers forums anymore and also no information about the Zoo's on other shards. I hope when all the info from the old forums are recovered we can get a better idea how other shards are doing.


    Not sure if our shard got alot of tamers but i do know there alot of hard working people and also very generous people on our shard. :)
