The Bonding Bar

On your ketucari's import information, you will see a section for their bonding bar.  In newly obtained ketucari, all of the bullets in their bar will be black, as they will start out at 0.

Bonding Bar by Matriarchs-Haunt

The bonding bar serves as incentive to keep and continue working with your ketucari. The more you do with them, the stronger your bond will become and the better they will perform for you!
Bonding cannot be applied to Companions at this time
While pieces claimed for Bonding and later Exalting do not have to be made by you, they do need to be posted after ownership of the Ketucari has been transferred to you, with one exception.
The Exception is that if you win or receive a ketucari from an event where that ketucari was drawn and raffled off, you may claim any unclaimed pieces for bonding with the permission of the artist.

 

Bond Leveling and Rewards

Increasing your bond level is simple: just use your ketucari in the group! For every five pieces related to group activities in which the ketucari is featured, the bond bar will fill in one bullet/level.

Every time you reach the five piece quota necessary to fill the level, comment here to have the level confirmed and the rewards added:
Arrow left Click here for bonding levels! Arrow right

There is a maximum of three levels per comment
We will no longer process batches that cross the 5->6 threshold, to better ensure that your total stats wind up accurate.
 

Rewards

Rewards will increase as you reach higher levels on the bar!  

FOR LEVELS 1-5:
Each time you redeem pieces for a level, your ketucari will receive
+10 to any Adventure stat of your choice
+10 Dexterity
+10 Strength
+50 Armor

FOR LEVELS 6-10:
Each time you redeem pieces for a level, your ketucari will receive
+20 to any Adventure stat of your choice
+20 Dexterity
+20 Strength
+100 Armor
+10 Nobility
 
At level 10 a player will be able to claim a Rare Gene Token. This token can be any rare gene except for feather types. If we find this system is being taken advantage of, this will be limited to One Token a Month Per Player.

Bonding Level 10 reached prior to November 5th, 2021 should have their token claimed through the following thread.

Exalted Leveling and Rewards

Exalted Levels are very similar to Bonding levels, and in fact are an expansion on the system! Exalted levels are unlocked when your ketucari reaches Bonding Level 10 and becomes an Elder. You cannot claim Exalted levels before that point.
Exalted levels will be expanded as time goes on and ketucari receive more and more art.
Increasing your Exalted bar level is simple: just use your ketucari in the group! For every five pieces related to group activities in which the ketucari is featured, the bond bar will fill in one bullet/level.

Every time you reach the five piece quota necessary to fill the level, comment here to have the level confirmed and the rewards added:
Arrow left Click here for exalted levels! Arrow right

There is a maximum of three levels per comment

Rewards

Exalted Level rewards are a little different from Bonding rewards.
They will include player's choice of several options, plus several stat boosts.
Currently, Exalted levels cap at "Exalted 20", but this may be expanded in the future.
 
Additionally, every 5 Exalted levels will award the player with a random event pet AND +1 Gene Slot on the ketucari, and every 10th will award the player with a Rare Gene Token
 
FOR EXALTED LEVELS 1-20
+100 armor
+20 to any Adventure stat of your choice
+20 Dexterity
+20 Strength
+10 Nobility
Player's choice of

+5 Breeding Slots
150 gold
1 Pouch of Raw Materials
or
5 Garonite Ore

 
 

What Counts as a "Group Activity"

Group Activities include the following:
-Adventures of any sorts
-Quests
-Skill and Crafting Unlocks
-Any official Group Events That have a specific prompt regardless of art requirement
-The Hallowed Tarn
-Battles
-Theme pieces regardless of rolling (must already have a theme declared on the tracker, must be rollable)
-Monthly Bounty
-Pre-raffle pieces for a Raffled Event Ket, such as the Wanderers, The Winter Event kets of 2016, the Halloween kets of 2017, or the Winter Event kets of 2019, if those pieces have not already been used should the winner gift or trade their new ket.
-Shift art for WaLoS, Flip Coins, or Darhaskos's Talismans.
 
Group Activities do not include:
-miscellaneous rolls done through Emissary
-Any non-import reference art (that is not Shift forms)


Keeping A Tracker

Like many other ARPGs, keeping an import or image tracker for your ketucari is important - mainly for tracking your bonding submissions! This will help our admins see at a glance if there is any repeated work, and will let you simply link your tracker instead of several different links!

Here are some examples of fantastically helpful trackers that we've gotten permission to repost and have our members copy:

Each ketucari must have its own tracker for ease of keeping track and expedience sake!

 

Q&A

Arrow left If I sell my ketucari, will their bond bar revert to zero?
Yes. All bonuses received from bonding will be removed as well and the new owner will have to start fresh.

Arrow left Will stats earned from bonding be factored in to the offspring of my ketucari if they have the Progenitor skill?
Yes, they will!

Arrow left Does the art/literature have to be my own in order to count?
No! Commissioned/gifted/etc. art can all be redeemed as well!

Arrow left Do Elder Themes count towards bonding?
Yes! Reaching elder is considered an activity - but be sure they meet the minimum requirements!

Arrow left Do I need an import tracker sheet?
Yes! We do ask that our members  to begin using a tracker since Level 1, for ease of use for you and us.
 After all, for max bonding, we would have to go through 150 submissions otherwise!

Please don't submit groups of bonding levels that cross the 5-6 threshhold, to make it easier for admins to ensure that you get your full stat bonuses. Stop at 5, restart at 6. We apologize for the inconvenience.
