The Forest waja is one of the 16 obtainable waja breeds. Its appearance takes influence from plants, a possible deer, and of course a wolf. It is a stocky breed with short legs and its lineart is more complex and "busy" than that of previous wajas. Its pose is stationary, as though perhaps it was doing something when the viewer approached and it looked up. As stated in the news post that announced its release, the Forest's Tokens will be for sale in the Token Shop from spring to autumn (northern hemisphere) as this is "the life of a flower".
To change a waja into the Forest breed, use a Fiddlehead.
Stages of Development
|Pup ( 0-5 days )||Adolescent ( 5-12 days )||Adult ( 12+ days )|
As it is was not yet released, the Forest waja's page was unable to be finished, so its teasers and the release itself were covered during that time. On November 14, 2013 the first sneak peak of the breed was released as a black silhouette via the news. On January 12, 2014 the Forest waja appeared as an option on the custom demo and as the site began to notice, Estuko made a news post, announcing that it was only a filler image and the actual breed art was still being worked on, but teasers would be posted. On January 13, 2014 the Butterfly Wings teaser image was posted via the news. On January 15, 2014 a second teaser image was posted that showcased the Alien Eyes, Raptor Claws, Tail Spikes, and Rhino Horns mutations. On January 27, 2014 a fourth teaser image was released showing the Forked Tongue, Prehistoric Horns, Antennae, and Shoulder Eyes mutations. On January 31, the actual Forest image was released, without shading. It was added to the custom demo, and users were able to play with markings on it (mutations are not yet available). The image released in the news contained the markings Merle and Blaze, and introduced the marking Vines (Marking). On February 4, 2014 an image of the Forest with some in progress shading and a couple markings was released in the news. A news post on February 12, 2014 released an image of the Forest with its Bird Wings/Tri Wings. On February 17, 2014 an image of the Forest with its Mane, Ram Horns, and Leg Feathers was released. On February 18, 2014 the an image of the Forest with its finished Leg Poms was released. On March 27, 2014 Estuko posted saying that the Forest was almost done, that all of the Markings and Mutations should be working in the demo, and that she had made slight changes to the Mane. Two pictures were included in this news post. On March 29, 2014 the Forest breed's release was announced in the news with one final picture:
Today is the day. The Forest Waja has been released! Vine and Blaze dyes are in the Dye Shop. Star Packages were also released and come with a breed changing item.
However, accessories have not been completely refitted but we are working on those. Hopefully will have them done very soon. We will keep you all updated on those.
In terms of availability, this breed will be available in the beginning of Spring but go into hibernation in the beginning of Fall. :) The life of a flower.
Thank you everyone for your support and we hope you all love this new breed. It has been a very large project and we cant wait to see what you all come up with!
