  • Yavn Speaks 9/25

    Welcome to another edition of Yavn Speaks! I've got lots of new and exciting stuff to tell you about, so let's get to it!

    Chh Chh Changes...

    Have you noticed those leaves are starting change? Leaves aren't the only things that are changing this season, soon you'll find Yavn Speaks on a new and improved VMK.com! This new site (that's right I said new site) will boast lots more VMK stuff as well as links to your favorite Disney parks and attractions -- but the changes don't end there. As you may have also noticed, we're rolling out new columns too, like Dear Yeti and Push's Trash Trivia. But that's not all, there's still much more cool stuff coming!

    While some of these changes have been in the works for months, other site improvements are a direct response to your feedback and comments! We're lauching all these amazing upgrades and additions in the next few days and weeks, so keep watching the site -- you're going to be blown away!

    I know, I know, you can't wait. Well, while we're waiting for the new changes to take place, why don't we dig a little deeper into some of the details on these new changes:
    • Revised Trading System & Larger Pin InventoryMagic pins will now show how much power they have -- now you don't have to wonder if that 5 Star Inferno really has 5 Stars. Plus, soon you'll be able to wear 15 Pins!
    • In Trade Icon!
      Are you tired of talking to people who don't answer you, only to find out it's because they were trading? What about people that try to speak to you while you're trading for rare? Well now you won't miss another conversation or be bothered by other players when you're trading because now all players in trade will have a Trade Icon above their heads!
    • Single Use Items
      Wha? Yep, you read that right. We're introducing items that can only be USED ONCE and after they're used they disappear from your inventory. But wait that's not all, they'll also... expire! That is, if you haven't used them by a specific date.

      What are Single Use Items and why would I want them? Well, when we originally designed VMK the plan was for magic to be ultra rare and come from park quests only. As the game got closer to launch we felt that magic was just too cool to be a quest only prize, so we started using it as rewards and selling magic pins. The problem was that many of the pins suddenly became less cool. It was only when they were truly difficult to get that they became more desired.

      Along with magic becoming more common something else happened... people stopped casting the spells. So to address this problem, we will be releasing a new type of magic spell... a spell that can only be used once and once it is used it disappears from your inventory. If you decide to hold onto the spell, be warned, if it's never cast it will expire and disappear from your inventory on its expiration date.

      Now before everyone starts freaking out and sending nasty notes, this will only affect new spells, not current spells. We will still have traditional, long-lasting spells but now you will see magic spells given more as rewards for games and events.
    • New Hair!
      That's right! There are two new hairstyles for girls and a new one for boys. Hmmm. Should I get a haircut? In the next few weeks I'll put it to a vote and you can tell me what I should do!
    • Pirates Treasure Room
      Have you seen the beautiful new Pirates Treasure Room? It's not just there for good looks, there are 3 new chests inside that require keys to open. How do you get the keys you may be asking? Well, by playing either modes of the Pirates Of The Caribbean Game. Winning on Level 1 earns a Bronze Key, Level 2 earns a Silver Key and Level 3 earns you a Gold Key. After you've won a key take it to the Treasure Room and use it to open the matching chest. You might find the chest empty, but you might also find it filled with credits, a cool item or even magic! (Just between you and me mate, I've heard a rumor that Coral Magic may be found in the Gold Chest - but you'll have to plunder it yourself to see.) Make sure you win all 3 keys because each chest has a different treasure inside!
    • Halloween Hijinx
      Halloween is just around the corner and I know many of you haven't decided what or who you will be. To help you make a decision about your costume I thought it it might be helpful to tell you when some of your favorite costume pieces will be coming back. Of course we'll have a few new "Mystery" items on sale too, but to find out what those are you'll have to check out the Emporium Specials. Here's a sneak peek at what's coming (and before you ask, Green Flips and Green Ears are NOT going on sale):
      10/2 - 10/8
      • Yellow Princess Outfit
      • Brown Haunted Mansion Suit
      • Black Haunted Mansion Suit
      • Mystery Item!


      10/9 - 10/15
      • Blue Princess Outfit
      • Native American Costume
      • Mystery Item!


      10/16 - 10/22
      • Green Superhero Costume
      • Pink Superhero Costume
      • Yellow Explorer's Outfit
      • Mystery Item!

      10/23 - 10/31
      • Pink Princess Outfit
      • Red Cowboy Vest
      • Black Cowboy Vest
      • Mystery Item!

    • New Staff Uniforms
      Finally, it's out with the green and in with the red. The new staff uniforms are based on the classic Disneyland Tour Guide outfits, cool huh?

    So when does this all kick off? Keep watching the site, while in-game changes (like the revised Pin Trading and other things discussed here) will kick off in early October. By the way, asking staff when will everything will be live will not make it happen any sooner! I'm not sure how I can top this for next week... maybe some more Q&A?

    See you in VMK,

    Yavn

    *Update* Here's the outfits... I think they look great!

                      believe me, they will be noticable... nothing like this costume will be released...

                      most of it is probably original, at least the tops are.

                        Lol, i wish the pictures had the new hair. But see when i say the wont "pop" out as but, there are alot of people who wear blue and black. No one before wore ALL green! Including ears.

                        If they put a special color of ears on them than i would like it

                          So, do you think all those costumes will be available all week? Or just on certain days of the week.

                              Bottom line:
