Living vine cloaks were introduced during the Taisidon Mystery 435 microtransaction event.

The vine cloak's appearance changes when worn and is sensitive to the seasons. Different flowers will bloom on the vines, dependent on the time of year. These living cloaks will bond to the first to wear it, though the owner can choose to BREAK the bond. Doing so will most certainly upset the vines, perhaps in more ways than one.

Maintenance

Living vine cloaks must be fed periodically. To do so, FEED it while standing in a natural outdoor area. They like dirt.

  • They do not lose health while offline.
  • They also do not lose health when not being worn.
  • Should the vines die, the only way to revive them is through the power of a potency crystal.
  • Using an infuser stone on a living vine cloak will grant it 30 days of sustenance. While under said protection, it will not lose health. Additional stones can be used to add 30 days each.

Any time you see an atmo message, it's lost some health. When you see a bolded atmo message, it's changed health tiers. Atmo messages happen every 15-30 minutes naturally, though RUB/TICKLE can alter the timing (and RUB causes a bigger hit up front because of the delay in atmo messages). Most of the atmo messages, but not all, will display a health indication. These aren't something you need to babysit hourly to keep alive, but definitely don't go afk for a full day. Random item is very random in terms of the damage done -- its mood and activity levels (hidden stats that also randomize themselves periodically) can affect the damage they take each cycle, too. All of these factors also affect the atmo messages that can trigger.

BREAK:

You reach for one of the tendrils and draw it close. Without hesitation, you rip the tendril savagely from the mass, severing it in a cruel act of betrayal. The writhing mass constricts into a tight ball as if clutching the wound, but just as swiftly explodes into a terrible frenzy of slapping, slashing, stinging strikes.
At last, the vicious onslaught has played itself out. The vines noticeably weakens, its flowers fading and vines withering. The tendrils barely move anymore.
(This action wounds the former owner.)
