Rarity Farming FAQs
What is Rarity Farming?
Rarity farming is a play-to-earn mechanic that rewards players for making their Aavegotchi NFTs as rare as possible. Equipping them with Wearable NFTs, petting them twice daily, and participating in XP events can lead to GHST token rewards for Aavegotchis across the categories of Rarity, Kinship, and XP.
Show Me the Money!
This season 1.6 million GHST (roughly $1.3 million USD) is up for grabs during the eight-week Rarity Farming period.
How to Participate?
To participate in Rarity Farming Season 7, you just need to own an Aavegotchi. Alternatively you can borrow one from a player that is offering a split on GHST earned during the borrowing period with Gotchi Lending.
The most active gaming DAO in the world has once again stepped up to the plate. Not only did the proposal for Rarity Farming SZN 7 pass with ease, but player rewards will once again be fully funded by the AavegotchiDAO!
There have been no major changes to Rarity, Kinship, or XP systems since the preceding season, however, the DAO has decided that 100k GHST be added to the reward pool in order to support a concurrent Gotchi Battler tournament (a new Aavegotchi idle game) featuring teams of 5 Gotchis.
As such, this season will have the same payout percentages to each category.
1.5M GHST rewards will be allocated as follows:
- Rarity (70%)
- Kinship (20%)
- XP (10%)
PLUS, for the first time, an additional 100k GHST going to players of Gotchi Battler (tournament details below)
As always, all participating Aavegotchis have the chance to win non-transferable badges and trophies designed by Xibot, the summoner and lead artist of Aavegotchi. These rare “baadges” are deposited directly into your Aavegotchi to forever prove its unique history of successes. Take a look at the NFT baadges your Gotchi could be winning.
Four Ways to Win
Rarity is the main rewards pool with 70% of player rewards allocated to this leaderboard. An Aavegotchi’s rarity score is determined based on a number of factors including:
- Randomly generated traits when the Aavegotchi is summoned
- Points earned from equipping Wearables and Wearable sets
- Changes to trait scores earned by leveling up
- Changes to trait scores made possible by the aging mechanic
To climb this leaderboard, either purchase or summon the rarest Aavegotchi you can, then continue to boost their rarity using the right combination of Wearables and Wearable sets.
Climbing the kinship ladder is less capital intensive than rarity. To increase your Aavegotchi’s kinship simply pet it twice a day (once every 12 hours) or feed it kinship potions. Each time you pet your Aavegotchi their kinship score will increase by one. It’s also important to note that for each 24-hour period that passes without petting your Aavegotchi, its kinship score will decrease by one. To climb this leaderboard, make sure you interact with your GotchiGang every 12 hours!
XP (Experience Points) is the final leaderboard which allows anyone with an internet connection the ability to earn XP on their Aavegotchi’s behalf. Players can earn XP by voting in the AavegotchiDAO, attending community events, participating in minigame leaderboard competitions, and by drinking XP potions. To climb this leaderboard, stay active in the Aavegotchi community and keep an eye on our social media platforms so you know how and when you can earn XP!
Craft your ultimate Aavegotchi squad, fine-tune their formation, and deploy unique special moves and leader skills to secure victory in thrilling battles to the death!
This first tournament coincides with Rarity Farming and can support over 4000 teams entering with each team consisting of 5 gotchis, this means a total of 20,480 gotchis total have the potential to enter!
This is a single elimination tournament with 1 round each day. To participate you simply need to enter your team during the registration period at the start of the tournament, then your team will automatically progress through each round. Powered by Chainlink’s VRF random number generator, each day you can view all the battles on the Gotchi Battler website.
The prize pool for this tournament is 100k GHST, so significant prizes await those most aptly managing their Aavegotchi squads!
