Change Summoning Cooldown to Slow Hero Inflation V2
• As stated by certain team members previously there is a concern about the growth of the hero population, at present nearly 800k •Many community members share the same view, that this is unsustainable, causing high gas fees, large sell pressure on in-game items, and disincentives new players from j...
Control Hero Population Growth via Change of Summoning Mechanics

KILLER BOT / ZOMBIE DUNGEON - My Ultimate Idea to control Hero Population
Hello friends, some days ago I proposed here a system based on power ups to control hero population growth. I wanna thank all the mates who gave me a feedback. THE PREMISE I am completely convinced that the problem is not how many heroes we have, but how many heroes we put in the tavern: this is wha...
Stamina requirement for summons
Message from the Arch Druids: “When the portals were first opened, they bursted with long-restrained energy. Crystals were infused almost without effort.

"the burning pit" - burn unwanted heroes for materials
Hey DFK team and community. I shared my thoughts about hero inflation and hero burning options a couple of weeks ago in this thread. - https://talk.defikingdoms.com/contribute/general-feedback/e/40811/ I have since read and participated in most of the discussion regarding the subject and have change...
MOVE TO BASE CHAIN (COINBASE CHAIN) TO SAVE DFK
With the way the market has been going, I’m not sure how much runway DFK realistically has. And it’s looking like Klaytn is going the same way as Harmony by not willing to approve/provide more capital. So I think it’s time to honestly forget about these other chains and to just move to Base Chain (c...
A Fair & Equitable Hero Inflation Limiting Proposal
As a Gen0 owner, I was opposed to the previous proposal of limiting summoning as it didn’t offer anything in exchange for giving up the benefit. I would be willing to vote YES to another proposal that makes mutations deterministic in exchange for a longer cooldown period. I suggest extending the coo...
Robin Hood Power-Up
This power-up would be a win - win scenario, allowing lower income players rent power-ups and allowing participants in the Robin Hood Power-Up to earn rental fee rewards.

Heroes Should Not Hunt with a Questing Status
When heroes are on a hunt, they show a “Questing” Hero status. Instead, it should show the name of the actual contract. I’ve watched many folks try to clear active quests and whatnot thinking they had quest-stuck heroes, when they were actually in the hunt contract. Applies to Meditation, Reroll, an...
Global offer for Hero/Pet/Equipment markets
It would be great to be able to place global offers for heroes, pets, equipment, etc. Players may decide to accept the global offer for their NFT, if they are OK with the price. Ideally, there will be generic and specific global offers for all NFT types: Global offers for any hero/pet/equipment for ...

We are actually discussing this on a Mythic Squad Discord VC as I type this… lol @“Jake Sloan” was talking about how badly we need a “Free to Experiment/ Learn” feature in the game to try out new combos without trashing your records, or if you only have one squad high enough level, or if we are tryi...
Stone on Front of Card
Skiller makes cool graphics. When he shows heroes, the stone used is a sticker on the front of the card. Maybe not as big as the picture, but the same size as the PJ medal. If you popped this in the top-left of a card, it would be super helpful when shooting through the tavern instead of having to f...
Dark Stylist (Aesthetic Boosting)
DFK should create a Dark Stylist. Similar mechanics to Dark Summoner in that two heroes combine and die to create a new hero except instead of the tears boosting rarity they boost one selected Appearance (Aesthetic) trait (appendages/hairstyle/colors) and make it significantly more likely to occur. ...
Add a “Spooky Forest” for greater inclusion of ecosystem devs?

$JEWEL/$WAIT Liquidity Pool
It would be amazing to have a $JEWEL/$WAIT LP token pair within the Gardens.

Hero Souls (Burn, Crafting) Idea
A burn mechanic that would allow a player to burn a hero to obtain a hero soul. The hero soul could be used to create equipment, enchant, etc. Certain crafting recipes would require hero souls and the only way to get them is if your hero is sacrificed or killed (eventually hardcore PvP, PvE). The he...
Hero/Pet burn idea - Dark Sacrifice
Not sure if this has been suggested anywhere but this would really drive Hero burn up. Sacrifice Heroes for Rare crafting materials that would be used to craft high end equipment. How this would work is simple, just sacrifice (burn) 1 or 2 Heroes at a time at the Dark Summoner to receive, or have th...
'National Service' idea for heroes
I had a fun idea after the last AMA. For the benefit of the project, donating/staking your ‘spare’ heroes to a Dev/DAO operated AQ wallet, where they use the stamina to harvest quest rewards that then ONLY get used as locked liquidity across all dexes/expansions/outposts - this takes the heroes out ...
Move Medium content to an official website
Using Medium to release alpha makes the project feel a bit amateurish. Why not use either the kingdom studios website or make eg alpha.defikingdoms.com? Can you imagine Blizzard etc using Medium? Just something little to add an air of professionalism.

Hero inflation and game aligment
Hey DFK team and community, I have pondered a bit about the future on DFK and believe I have found an area where I think the game needs a strategy change. Right now, I do not think the inflation hero numbers and the game design are in alignment. If we are to continue with the current hero inflation,...

Level 10 Quests - What, no Lore?
For starters, THANK YOU for the HBF/Giga patch, it’s a huge step forward! Now to the feedback: Placing the Level 10 quests in the profession area with the same NPCs seems like a very expedient choice… The quests provide a necessary outlet for our higher level heroes, but do nothing to enrich the atm...
I miss the way heroes used to look
Every time I look at my heroes now it makes me sad that I don’t have the option to also look at them how they used to appear. I understand they needed to evolve in appearance for combat, but in many cases I bought or held onto heroes for their visual appearances before. Now for some reason that is a...

"Bring your Own Potion"
Last AMA it was brought up that “Bring your Own Potion” would be a prerequisite to PVP. In general how close to release is this mechanic? “soon”, “a while”, or “iceberg conquest” pace? Also, when this is eventually released, I assume the potions/vials will be burned when consumed in battle? (but wha...
I want to put forward that when a hero goes to challenge a champion that the hero limit should not be considered. To win 5 in a row with a hero and then not be able to use that hero for champion challenge is quite deflating.

Do you have any thoughts on the proposal to add hunt leaderboards as discussed in the attached screenshots? High level, a display of top boar hunters in the tavern to inspire players toward greater achievement (and playtime).

Are there any plans for a desktop/ mobile wallpapers with good picture quality of the map (or better yet - new and unique ones)? The latter would be really cool for marketing.

SECURITY - Is Bridging Safe? Let's find out......
Can the team give us some insight into the due diligence done on the security of the Klaytn chain bridge “Orbit” ?

Is this vote binding or advisory?
Prior AMA’s indicated that any vote would be more of a ratification or “advisory” in nature (similar to say-on-pay advisory votes for publicly traded companies), in other words, it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t pass by majority, because its advisory and isn’t binding on any action. However the tone a...

Guild members can marry two of their heroes. Doing so will prevent these heroes from summoning with other heroes, but they would be able to summon more times and/or their child would have increased chances of having higher rarity/mutating.
Guild/Land Faction System
I suggest a faction type system for lands owned by a guild. (I suspect possibly some lands might be un-owned -ie: for sale, lost wallet, other. Or the land owner may just not be part of a guild) In the event the land was owned by a guild, it would effect how a hero would pass thru the land. -Member ...

It would be really cool if a guild could save up and purchase a plot of land together.

Different modes of PvP
In the interview w/ ADFK, you mentioned different modes of PvP. Can you elaborate? Will PvP always be 3vs3 or will some of the modes be more or less heroes, similar to Duels as an example. Will PvE have the same hero dynamic as far as this is concerned?
