News and Updates

New Companions for Capture, Misc & Arcade Updates

New Companions for Capture

Now that the denizens of Lyth have become more familiar with Reenah and its landscape, two new companions are now available for capture!

Phamies and Lumizoa are both now available via Companion Captures using Lythians that have the requisite Reenah familiarity and taming skill level.

Some other adjustments have been made to various companion capture rates to help balance out the leveling process (rates increased/added at lower levels).

Miscellaneous Updates

- You may now add personal notes to your friends via your friends list page. These are personal notes are visible only to you.

- You may now favorite your known crafting recipes, which will cause them to appear at the top of your recipes list.

- A new account setting has been added: "Hide username in pet shelter and arcade high score tables".
This setting will anonymize your username in the pet shelter and arcade game high score tables from everyone other than staff. (A random NPC name will be displayed instead!)

- You can now display direct message conversation in oldest-to-newest message order (default) or newest-to-oldest message order (new). Helpful for long conversations so you don't need to scroll as far down! You can sort a conversation while viewing any specific conversation you are a member of and the setting will be saved until you choose to change it.

- MYOs have a new "Baby?" option which will explicitly inform staff if a submitted character as a baby or not.

Arcade Game Updates

Please ensure that the title screen of arcade games displays the version mentioned below or higher to take advantage of these updates!

- Add new rare eidolon spawn: "+1 eidolon" which will add 1 additional life if successfully tapped
- In hardmode: ghost spawn rate adjustments (aiming to make the "ramp-up" rate feel better)

New Achievements, Companion Likes, Oekaki

New Achievements

New achievements have been added for successful crafting and cumulative gifting gacha rolls.

These are semi-retroactive. If you qualify for these achievements from previous participation in these activities, you will receive the the achievement(s) you qualify for on your next successful crafting attempt/gacha roll.

Companion Likes

You can now "like" companions via their profiles, similar to liked Lythians. You may view all of your liked characters from the Liked Characters page (previously "Liked Lythians"), which now has some search functionality as well.


Art may now be created using the Lythbound Oekaki, which is built using ChickenPaint and integrated with our forum.

✦ Images can be saved to your PC or uploaded to the server.
✦ You may currently save one in-progress image to the server without posting it publicly. This image will automatically load next time you open the oekaki.
✦ When an image is uploaded to the server, it automatically creates a thread in the Oekaki Forum Category as well.
✦ There is no minimum time requirement for art pieces submitted here, but works should exhibit a level of effort which would be at minimum submittable as an ARPG work.
✦ Oekaki pieces submitted to the site should be Lythbound related in some way. (Realm landscapes, etc, are permissable.)

Additionally, like other aspects of Lythbound, all oekaki submissions must also follow our Terms of Service.
