    This is based on alot of our Q&A in other threads. Feel free to make suggestions and please ask further questions to expand this:

    What kind of game is Pocket Legends Adventures?

    Pocket Legends Adventures (PLA) is an epic, action-packed RPG adventure featuring an innovative real-time combat system, unique skills-based advancement, endless Character customization, and the finest Co-Op multiplayer in the mobile gaming universe!

    Is this a sequel to Pocket Legends?

    PLA is not an MMO, and not a Sequel to Pocket Legends. It is a more casual homage that takes place within the same universe with the same whimsical sense of humor. It is meant to be played in short bursts while leveling up your character and hanging out with friends.

    How is PLA the same as Pocket Legends the MMO?

    - PLA is combat focused (with all new mechanics)
    - There is real-time Multiplayer Madness
    - There is extreme Character Customization along multiple axis
    - It encourages Social gameplay (vanities, chat, emotes, friends, etc)

    How is PLA different from Pocket Legends the MMO?

    - PLA has an extensive single player campaign
    - You only have one character per account (but you can change Race)
    - There is no trading/ merching
    - There is no PvP (yet)

    Can I use my existing Spacetime Account for this game?

    Account creation is going to be a bit different with this game. You will need to use your Facebook ID, Google Play ID, or Apple IDs as your login. You will be able to log in to multiple devices with your account.

    What platforms is this game on?

    PLA will be available on iOS and Android. There are no plans for a Chrome client.

    What are the Hardware requirements?

    For iOS, PLA requires a 64 bit device (iPad Air or later, iPad Mini 2 or later, iPhone 5s or later) running iOS 10 or higher.
    For Android, PLA requires [TBD]

    Can I reserve my name in this game?

    We will not have name reservations for this game. Each account is only one character, with one name. People will not be able to hoard names so there should be a wide variety available.

    Are there different Classes in this game?

    There are no specific Classes in PLA. You customize your character to play the way you want it to play, and skin it to look the way you want it to look. There are three Races: Ursan, Avian, and Elf.

    Can races be male or female?

    We’ll have faces and hairstyles that lean one way or the other, but the body silhouettes will stay the same. To really tell the difference, you’ll need to look under the fur ;-)

    How does the player progress?

    PLA has an extensive Single Player campaign where you progress through twelve different Tiers to earn loot (Gold, Equipment) and various ways to advance your character (Training, Spell, Talent, and Pet Shards). You are able to pause in these dungeons. You are scored 1, 2, or 3 stars for completion of a dungeon. You advance by skillfully playing through the levels with the proper builds and equipment. You can repeatedly replay these dungeons to gain more loot and advancement opportunities. There is a cool down on each dungeon for replay, but your available pool of dungeons to play through increases as you advance, so there should always be something to do. To customize your character, you choose which attributes you would like to advance (Training, Spells, Talents and Pets). There are Gold and Shard costs to upgrade your Character. These attributes take time to complete.

    Is this going to be an energy based game?

    There will be timers and cool-downs (that you can pay through) but not "energy" per-se. There should always be plenty for you to do while you wait for something to cool down.

    Is there a level cap? And progression-wise, are there going to be expansions that increase the level cap with new campaigns?

    Players level up through Tiers by playing through the Single Player campaign. There are 12 Tiers at launch that will be regularly raised with Expansions.

    What's the multiplayer content going to be like?

    Multiplayer allows Parties and Pick Up Groups to play together to achieve various goals. You are rewarded vanity and special store tokens by playing with others. It will include some Gauntlet-survival type levels, and possibly some type of Raid content. There will be leaderboards for The Gauntlet and some of the other multiplayer levels. We'll also have cycling multiplayer events.

    What Social Systems are there in the game?

    The game has Chat and Mail. It also has Friends and Multiplayer gameplay. We’ll add Guilds and more social systems post-launch.

    How do I move in the game?

    There are three ways to move: tap, tap and hold, virtual joystick. Virtual Joystick can be turned on in Options. You can also rotate the camera with 2-finger swipe.

    What is Auto-Run for?

    Auto-run is supposed to help play the game for you while you advance (you only need tap on spells and to avoid), but not play the game to advance. Once you are higher tier, it is intended to help you grind lower ones, you can just auto-run when you become OP for a particular tier.

    What is Combat like?

    PLA combat is fairly skill-based supported by a robust auto-attack. Much of the challenge is proper spell deployment and damage avoidance.

    Can I customize my Character with Vanity Items?

    Seasonal events and Multiplayer gameplay is where you obtain Vanity items. You are awarded Tokens for how well you achieve your Multiplayer goals. These Tokens can be used to purchase Vanity items. There is a Costumer who then applies a Vanity item to a particular item slot.

    Can I change Vanity Items without having to pay for it?

    There is a nominal platinum cost associated with baking visuals into your items.

    What is baking visuals into your items?

    Baking visuals is the process by which you customize the look of an item. By talking to the Costumer you can choose the item you want to change the look of, choose the appearance, and pay a small fee to "bake"
    that new appearance into your item. Appearances you can choose from are special vanity appearances (which have to be earned) as well as any piece of equipment you've looted

    If you buy a vanity, does it work on all 3 races?

    It does, same vanity purchase works on all three races.

    What does monetization look like in the game?

    Monetization is generally geared to overcome time and skill hurdles. We want this game to be a financially successful for the company, which means it has to monetize well, but we know it also has to be fair to those who never want to spend anything.

    What Currencies are in the Game?

    - Platinum is purchased in the Store and rewarded via Daily Rewards, Daily Quests, and Achievements.
    - Gold is earned pretty much everywhere (single player DNGs, free chests, daily rewards, etc.) and is used to pay for upgrades (Training, Spells, Talents, and Pets).
    - Keys are used to bypass a Dungeon and skip right to the Reward.
    - Vanity Tokens are rewarded for how well you achieve Multiplayer goals.

    Can I Trade Items or Currencies?

    You cannot trade anything between accounts in PLA. Trading can lead to some very bad player behavior (scamming, selling gold, etc.).

    "Hey can I hold that item for a second... CYA!"

    We're keeping this one cleaner - makes for a nicer experience all around.

    What does this mean for Merching?

    There will be no Merching in PLA. It is a much more casual game than our MMOs, and will not include those types of hard-core mechanics.

    What does Platinum do for me?

    Platinum allows you to complete upgrades faster as well as bypass other timers. You can also purchase Keys which allow you to bypass combat on a Dungeon that you have three-starred and skip to the rewards.

    Is Platinum worth the same as in the other Legends games?

    We’re adding another decimal to platinum with this game, so 1 plat = somewhere between $0.01 and $0.005 USD. It is currently priced ranging from 500 for 4.99 to 14,000 for 99.99. We're also implementing a VIP system for how much money you do spend.

    What type of VIP program?

    VIPs get bonus plat with their purchases, a stipend of keys (which you can use to bypass playing a dungeon and skip right to the rewards) and the ability to upgrade more things at once.

    Can I earn Platinum in the game?

    Yes. We’re giving players a daily drip of platinum inbound through the Free Chests (every 4 hours), Daily Quests, and Daily Rewards.

    Will emulators be allowed?

    Sadly no.

    Will there be social hubs of sort? Places where people are able to come, represented by their in-game character and their achievements, and hang out?

    Yes, there is a main Towne where people hang out and modify their weapons, appearances, and access Multiplayer content.

    Will there be seasonal events?

    Yes there will be seasonal events. Up first, WinterFest!

    Will there be any 'rare' rewards worth collecting? An example would be the classic founder rewards or any special vanity or items available only during expansions.

    We're not planning on any Founders rewards, but there will certainly be seasonal vanities, etc.

    Will PvP be released in the future?

    PvP is on the roadmap, but not in the traditional sense. We're looking to tie it in more with Guilds (also on the roadmap) and more social play.

    Will you guys ever try and make this game an MMO in time as updates go along? Just like PL?

    Only PL is just like PL We'll definitely add more features as time goes on, but trading/ merching/ etc. will not be a part of this game.

    How much disk space will cost it this game?

    Well under 100 megs.

    When is the release date for this game?

    Soon! We'll have a Closed Beta period for a bit, then a soft launch in a few territories for a bit, then launch the game.

    Is the VIP status temporary or permanent based on amount of platinum purchased?

    Are people able to use inbound platinum for VIP status?

    Also I think people are able to create threads in announcement section, is that intended?

    VIP is permanent status.

    Not sure what you mean by inbound plat?

    Not intended that others can create threads in Announcements, thanks.

    VIP Status is tied to Platinum purchased, not Platinum spent so any Platinum earned through gameplay and spent will not progress your VIP Tier.

    Thanks this is what I wanted to know and I think this is fair and just.


    How many Vip tiers are there/ how much plat needed for each tier?

    There are some concerns i have. The pay to win/play is a big one. This game seems to be extremly money based........ i dont like the fact that there is "energy".. id like to sit and play the game for hours. Also, this prompts the issue of playing with friends. If it costs energy to enter a dungeon you may not get to play with friends very long. If at all.

    You should actually play the game before making vast assumptions about it.

    Some quick answers to your concerns:
    - Multiplayer dungeons do not use the "energy" style mechanic. The dungeons that will use this are only single player. Play with friends as much as you'd like!
    - Players will reach a point in game where they can continue playing as long as they want due to the number of dungeons they have access to being greater than the timers keeping them out of those dungeons, though you will not be able to grind the exact same dungeon over and over (the game is also set up so that you don't need to grind the exact same dungeon over and over!)
    - All players have an inflow of Platinum through Log In Rewards and the Free Chest (4 chances per day at Platinum!) which can be used to bypass a few restrictions you would otherwise have to wait for.

    I have a question. So basically how im reading the multiplayer/single player is you essentially play the single player in its entirety to get the gear and tiers needed to play the later content which is multiplayer. Then in the multiplayer you sort of farm for the much rarer cooler stuff much like the legends games? The other question i have that ties to the online aspect is a towne. Is there one? or if not a plan to have one?
