Oryx 3: Treasurer Gemsbok

Oryx 3 awaits in Oryx’s Sanctuary, and he’s not alone! Before confronting the Mad God himself for a final showdown, you’ll have to get through one of his four most trusted allies. Among them is…

Treasurer Gemsbok

Oryx’s rule has not been known to care for conventions of organized society like currency or pay, but this is not due to any personal resentment the Mad God holds. No, customs like these are perceived as a threat to his power. Never one to pay much mind to careful finances, Oryx sought outside expertise in his mission to collapse the realm’s formerly structured economy.

Treasurer Gemsbok, now a glorified hoarder, was once an opulent emperor in one of the realm’s many kingdoms of old. Most civilizations either dispersed or futilely fought back against Oryx’s uprising, but Gemsbok cruelly betrayed his people for a position of fiscal authority in the Mad God’s new rule.

Though he feigned legitimacy at first, Gemsbok was soon able to crush the remaining populations of the realm under Oryx’s so-called “taxes.” With nothing left to exercise power over, Gemsbok resides in a great vault of his ill-gotten gains. The treasurer may be stronger as a manipulator than a fighter, but you would be foolish to take this as a reason to underestimate him. Gemsbok’s cunning mind lends him more than a few tricks on the field of battle.

You’ll be facing Gemsbok and three other shadowy villains in the depths of Oryx’s Sanctuary soon! Over 800 Shield Runes have dropped from the latest events. Are you prepared to use them?

Feed Power

As we announced in a recent Reddit post, we have worked on revising the feed power values of UTs and STs to account for some inconsistencies and ensure the numbers match the general value of the item.

We’ve also worked to make sure there are still viable feed power options for the early game so the process of reaching at least a maxed rare pet is reasonably easy and efficient. Below is a full list of the coming changes (anything unlisted has not been changed).

Cumulatively, this adds 9675 feed power to the game!

Soundtrack Stream

If you’re reading this on the day of posting, we have a special treat! Spave, one of the OST creators, is going to be doing a behind the scenes live stream today! Come hang out to get some sneak peaks at upcoming themes and give him some community feedback! 3pm ~ 6pm PST today, Friday April 24th @ twitch.tv/spave!

We hope you’ve enjoyed the first edition of this new blog! We will be using this regularly as a source of Exalt info, teasers, and some special content we think you’ll find interesting, so stay tuned!
