A completed ark floats in Anville

An ark can be created after getting 1000 logs of Gopher wood. Building an ark is the second of three goals heroes aim to accomplish during their lives. An ark can only be built after a hero completes their temple. Because arks are a very recent technological invention in Godville, only a few of the benefits are known to the gods.

Construction

After completing his or her temple, a hero will begin collecting wood, either by finding an offering left by a pilgrim in his/her temple, or collecting pieces in a dungeon or after defeating a boss monster at the end of an epic quest.

Known Benefits

Once a hero finishes constructing an ark, the hero will gain the ability to store up to three pets in it. After receiving a god voice from the deity, the hero will place the current pet in the ark and is free to tame a new one. Accordingly, a hero with an ark can have up to four pets (three in the ark and one at the hero's side). This ability removes the pain of separation from a pet should it be knocked out and unable to further gain pet levels.

In addition to storing pets, ark-owning gods gain a new medal next to their name . The Chinese character is pronounced 'zhōu' and translates as 'boat'. The date and time of ark completion appears on mouseover of the medal.

Ark owning gods finally become powerful enough to re-name any of their hero's pets.

What's next?

Many gods assume that the Administrators are planning yet another miserable challenge to torture the heroes in future updates. For now, a hero will focus on attaining highest ranks in all of the pantheons, taming and training more pets, and drinking enough beer to fill their ark with empty pitchers.

History

Arks were introduced by the Godville Administrators on the 21st of September 2013. The first ark was completed by the hero of the god Kingdada on the 26th of April, 2014 (Day 1448).
