Hey jammers! Today brings another small update, but that just means AJHQ has some jamtastic future things in store! Over in Sunken Treasures furniture shop we have the returning Starfish.
And I have exciting news, AJHQ has announced the deer alpha!
 You can buy your very own statue in the Mystery Emporium in the Chamber of Knowledge. The new alpha's name is Sigurd. It's possible he's named after Sigurd, famous hero of Norse and Germanic mythology, or after Sigurd Olson, a famous environmentalist and nature writer!
Which do you think he is named after? La Salle, the raccoon alpha, was named after a French explorer (curious!), and Amelia, the fox alpha, was named after Amelia Earhart (it was her birthday!).
 AJHQ as cut prices on all dens for a limited time!
 
 Be sure to get the dens you like if you're in the market for 'em. Also,  fun additions to the World Map are new icons!
Adventures and epic dens!

 And finally, AJHQ seems to be confirming the next animal will be an eagle. A large, black and white bird which glides through the air? Sounds about right, don't you think? No so ostrich-y...
And owls! They're just so gosh darn cute!
 Bawww, I think I melted. Anywho, what did you think of this little update? That's all I have for today, happy jamming!

    1. Wow it's a pretty good update! Some of the dens are really expensive so it's nice that they are on sale. It's about time for a deer alpha :3 Also, I think having a bird as an animal will be interesting. I wonder what it will look like?

    2. Me too! I was really hoping for it to be this update, but it will probably be next update. If it isn't.....ugh....

      Delete
    3. i think its going to be an eagle

      Delete
    4. oops she already said thatXD

      Delete
    5. I wonder if it will be flying in place or if it will be standing on the ground... hmm such decisions..

      Delete
    6. Some think it will be flying and others think it will be standing. I'm thinking they'll be like the owl pets, they stand but they move by flying.

  2. Third! :D

    Wow, I actually like this update quite a bit.

    1) Love the new Deer Alpha-I think it's named after Sigurd Olson!

    2) I'm most excited about the den price cut! Now I have the chance to purchase a lot more dens at a great price! C:

    3) I think the new icons are very helpful. It makes it a lot easier to simply click on one of the Adventures and get right into it instead of going to the Base Camp and having to find it.

    4) I agree, Snowy! I think it's definitely an eagle! I'm really excited!!!!!! I've wanted a flying animal for as long as I can remember! :D

    2. I'm sorry.
      I just keep beliving it's an owl. Why not an owl?

    3. You want an owl because of the books you like? I want a DRAGON because of the books I like...

    4. But Anon is right (before gaurdiansofgahoole) the feather sorta looks like a snowy owl's feather...

      Delete
    5. Im kinda angry because of the den cut because I just bought a new den D:< but I kinda like that the Cosmo den is on sale :D

      The new animal might be an owl or an eagle

    6. It will be an eagle (see other comments.) Yeah, it's annoying when you buy something right before it goes on clearance. This also happened to a friend, she got a snow leopard in the diamond shop just before kangaroos came out, and she had 0 diamonds left over, and she liked the kangaroos better than the leopards...

    1. Congrats on 6th! If they made more Alphas, for the ocean and Diamond shop animals, that would've been great. Also if the new animal came out!!

    2. Edit: Eagles. See other comments... Thanks for buddying me!

    3. The update really hasn't affected me too much.. all my den slots are full so I can't take advantage of the denstravaganza... I don't really like the new adventure update, it seems less... I don't know how to explain it, but thoughtful... it makes it seem like they're not adventures but just things you click on to get done... hmm..
      But anyway... I never look at epic dens anymore, half of them are locked and a bunch of them are just empty...
      I've had a pet owl since last year and I won't get to see the eagles until the next update...
      Complaining is one of my hobbies. c:

      Delete
    4. Actually, I complain a lot in real life and in AJ XD The den prices didn't matter to me, I have lots of gems :3 And the base camp looks terrible. I personally hate the new base camp, because it's like what you said. Not a real adventure.

      Delete
  4. The update is okay. I am rich and have all the dens already so it doesn't matter. xD
    I am disappointed that they removed the wolf cave from the return of the phantoms. D: I didn't check to see if any other caves have survived the update....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. WHAT? THEY TOOK OUT THE WOLF CAVE?!?!?!?
      No they didn't, it's just in a different spot.
      I have been to the new base camp and it is awful. No more actually seeing the tower, or the volcano, or the hive. You just go in and pick which one you want. I used to LOVE walking around the base camp and looking at the adventures, but now it's gone. Boo hoo.
      And they HAVE changed the adventures around a little, or at least Return of the Phantoms. Basically though most everything is where it was, just a little change with the Phantom Door.
      That's all for now.

    2. Wait they didn't? OMG YAYAYAY! Wait... where is it.... I was gonna do a video of me getting rares from there. So, where is it?

      Delete
    3. So you just tell is it's still there and then say it's in a different spot and then don't tell us where it is??

      xDDD

      Helpful, lol.

      Delete
    4. It moved just past the phantom door. BTW: normal mode on the Return of the Phantoms is much easier too.

      Delete
    5. Thanks so much I'll check it out later! Sorry for giving you a hard time. :P

      Delete
    6. Phew.. I'm glad it's not gone... o-o
      Someone said you can't get worns anymore? I don't think this is true.. but has anyone gotten a worn in the past few days?

      Delete
    7. Nope. The last time I got a worn was about a week ago..

      Delete
    8. Great! So it means worns are still in the adventures XD

      Delete
    9. Sorry for not saying where it is. (BTW that Anon below my comment was not me-- I never post without saying my username) I had some other things to say and I didn't want to spoil it for anyone! XP I'm hearing a lot about how the new base camp is the same as the old one... I wouldn't know I've only been playing since Night of the Phantoms.

    1. Copy down the URL of the pic if you're finding it from someplace like Google Images. (Just right-click the picture you want then click copy URL) on Blogger, when you edit your profile, for the picture uncheck From your computer and check the other option (I forgot what it was :P) then paste the URL. It should work. :)

      Delete
    2. You could always save it and upload it like a file from your computer...

      Delete
    3. HAHAHA I try that but it never works on my computer I right click save as but then it show up as a file. Only my brother who's a techie can figure it out and he's never home -.-

    2. I bought the Cosmo's den a few days after it first came out, no biggie. My den now is the Cosmo den XD it's unlocked too (trying to be epic) Anyway, I can't wait for the next update. The den sale is for two weeks, clue?

      Copy and paste yet again... the reply button shouldn't be NEXT TO the comment button...

    3. Yeah.... They could use another nm den. It doesn't have to be impressive.. just something else other than THAT ONE DEN. IT HAUNTS ME.

      Delete
    4. Maybe a den the size of the restaurant, and just a little bit cooler than the regular house. It could be a lot of gems or one diamond (AJHQ would probably pick diamond silly them...)

    1. You mean on Everloop? Exactly. Also the paragraph (as Aubrey said) the capital letters on the page with the feather say EAGLES!

    2. Yep.. I can tell it's definitely gonna be eagles from that... Ah well I like eagles and owls both. But crows are the best.. I just like the dignified way they walk.

      Delete
    3. With AJ you can actually change the colors so you can change it around to make it look like a crow. But eagles have a few different features and might not even walk on AJ...

  9. It's definitely eagles, the paragraph spells down "E A G L E S"

    1. Wow, your right! When I first read it, I noticed somethin going on with the capital letters at the beginning. Now I know XD sorry to those who wanted owls...

    2. AJHQ be doing subliminal messages o3o

  10. I think the update was okay, because I'm a non member and no new non member stuff was added so it was a pretty boring update for me.

    I think the new animal is an eagle, but are eagles black and white? The first bird that is black and white and isn't flightless I thought of was a Japanese crane.... :l

    I went into the adventure base camp, and what do I see? A portal. That's all. A. Portal. WHERE DID ALL THE ADVENTURE PORTALS GO?! That was not a good update to the adventure base camp IMO -.-

    Friendship Month! Can't wait for it :D I'm gonna randomly buy a bunch of heart lockets and send them randomly to random people XD

    Cannot wait for the eagles, and I hope they're for non members too :D

    1. If the eagles are nonmember, that would be awesome, and we would know AJHQ isn't forgetting about their nonmembers! I can't wait for all the Friendship items to come back, and I'm excited about the Friendship Party :D I agree, the base camp looks really boring now, but it's convenient that you don't have to run around (for the lazy people :P)

      Delete
    2. I doubt they'll be nonmember, knowing AJHQ... and their greedy money making habits. heh

      Delete
  11. If you read the first letter of the paragraph on the feather page, it spells out "EAGLES". I like the fact that the arctic wolf passage was moved. It was really a burden completing an adventure when everybody keeps leaving just because of the passage. Now they'll be forced to work hahaha.

    1. Yeah that got REALLY annoying. And it never even gave anything rarer than a scary cat hat anyway! (I actually got a cat hat from there...) But still, those people wont even GO on the adventures now..

    2. I can imagine AJ eagles right now. I think they'll be a little bit small, maybe the size of bunnies, and they will probably fly like the flying pets at the pets only party. Can't wait!

      Delete
    3. Bunnies? Don't eagles eat bunnies? Then wouldn't they logically be bigger than bunnies? lol
      I imagine them the size of tigers.

    1. Me too... I liked the little area around it. I remember when they were in a maze-like area, and the Meet Cosmo adventure had a little garden next to it and a hammock... but now it feels like they're trying to "efficientize" everything... it's less likable like that...

    2. You couldn't have said it any better, Gold!

      Honestly, I don't mind the icons... But when I logged on and realized that the Adventure Base Camp had entirely changed, I was very upset. I liked the old Base a LOT better D:
