If you've been keeping up with Tale of the White Wyvern development and the happenings in-game, you know that the fifth wyvern kill is the "last" one, as in the one where you unlock all the game story, and the one where you need some intense grinding to win. And you may also know that a few have already hit that threshold and are working on their sixth time through. Well, if you're wondering what comes next on this journey, look no further: Paragon. Here's how it works:

After your fifth wyvern kill, the five repeat themselves. The 1st and 6th fight are the same, the 2nd and 7th, and so on. But every fifth wyvern kill will get you a paragon coin that you can spend whenever you like. (And not to worry-- if you've beaten the 5th already, you'll retroactively receive one).

Each time you spend one of these paragon coins, you will lose all of your charm and your dead card and be reset back to the starting point of 1 charm and 0 dead card punches. These are things that never reset by default when you start back at level 1, but in order to use these coins, you're cashing them in.

But it's worth it because you get some pretty great perks:

  • +1 to your player paragon points.

  • A permanent +5% boost to forest exp gain.

  • A permanent +5% boost to forest gold find.

  • A permanent +5% boost to your bank interest.

  • New titles, up to your third redemption:

    • First redemption: Prestigious & Prestidigitonium

    • Second redemption: Demigod & Demigoddess

    • Third redemption: God & Goddess





These are additive, so on your second redemption you'll have +10% experience gain and gold find, for example.

To redeem these new coins, just pay a visit to Wrymdoor's favorite healer, Helga. She'll perform some secret magic and you'll be gaining experience and gold much faster! Just don't be surprised when Crugg acts like he doesn't know you anymore.

As I said above, you can redeem these whenever you like-- if you want to wait until you get into the later levels before losing your charm, you can do that. If you want to hoard your paragon coins you can do that too. The choice is yours.

We should have Paragon Coins in the game for you to redeem by Wednesday. Prepare yourself for speedy leveling!

Cool! I was wondering what would happen after that final kill, since I'm extremely close to accomplishing that now. I think losing all your charm is a bit of a small price to pay, yet it also kind of sucks. I think there shouldn't be any negative outcome for getting that final kill. Although perhaps it's kind of a balancing act so that players don't get too OP. Losing all your charm isn't too bad since we all seem to accumulate so much of it that at a certain point it no longer matters if you end up losing some of it in the forest. So this change kind of puts some polish on the charm stat, I think. When some of us stated how much charm we had, we were around 100-200+. I don't remember how much charm you need for that ultimate NPC interaction, but I'm guessing it's no where near that much. It doesn't take very long to accumulate enough charm to get to that point, but it's very easy to get so much charm that if you lose some in the forest, it's no big deal at all, other than a wasted forest fight.

Anyway, thanks again to you and Jon for making the game and continuing to develop it.

Thank you and everyone for continuing to play it!

And yeah, you’re right about the reasoning a bit.

Once you’ve gone through maybe 18 levels total or so, those lower-charm responses from
NPCs just become worthless, and your charm stat effectively doesn’t matter. This gives it meaning again, but definitely pays you for taking away your charm.

And you can always choose not to use this if you want to keep that charm, but you’ll lose out in the long run. It’s really a better deal for you than it is Helga. 😂

We are live! The 5+ crew should have a shiny coin in their inventories now.

Crugg acts like he doesn't know me!

But, I am swimming in gold, so I will just find someone I can pay to be my friend.
