  • The Legendary Lab gives players the ability to craft the first Pet Augments.
  • Crafting in the Lab costs five GENE tokens and five Genotype Crystals, all of which are the same type, and each result is fully randomized.

The Genopets team revealed the recipe hunt prize pool with the launch of the Legendary Lab.

Genopets are the in-game creatures used by players, and each player can craft NFTs to upgrade or customize their Genopet. This functionality has been enhanced with the introduction of the Legendary Lab. 

Genopets Legendary Lab: What’s Inside

Through an announcement by the Genopets team on Twitter on November 17, 2022, we saw the launch of the Legendary Lab.

The Legendary Lab is where players who participated in the game’s Treasure Hunt can finish up any missing content they need. 

The Treasure Hunt is an event where players assemble “pages” from a recipe book to create random items in the laboratory by minting each page. 

Minting costs SOL tokens in terms of fees, alongside 180 KI tokens. KI is the in-game utility token owners can gain by converting Energy from steps daily.

Players are required to have all five pages, which are NFTs that can be purchased on Magic Eden. Each of them varies in value and rarity.

Upon gaining all of the pages, players can use the Legendary Lab with a cost of five GENE tokens and five Genotype Crystals, all of which are of the same type. 

The GENE token is the governance token and can be used for either staking or crafting valuable items.

Genotype Crystals are consumables that can activate special upgrades or unlock power-ups, items, and accessories. They are used for crafting.

Genopets Legendary Lab Recipe Hunt Prize Pool Explained

All of the results are random, and each prize has a rarity percentage. They include:

  • Legendary Ear Augment – 4.30% Drop Rate
  • Rare Wing Augment- 19.14% Drop Rate
  • Rare Tail Augment – 28.71% Drop Rate
  • Rare Horn Augment – 9.57% Drop Rate

Note that consumables can also drop, including an Energy Boost, an Adsynth Crystal, a Subsynth Crystal, and a Lume Crystal, all of which have a 9.57% Drop Rate.

Once players have them, they can add them to their Pets, gaining stat bonuses or special abilities.

All of the Legendary Augments have a capped supply, and the maximum supply for the Legendary Ear Argument is 300.

These Augments don’t do anything at the moment; however, once the combat features are introduced in the Genopets game, they will provide benefits.

Genopets

Genopets is a move-to-earn (M2E) NFT, free-to-play (F2P) game built on the Solana (SOL) blockchain. It aims to incentivize players to be physically active and live a better lifestyle.

On the Flipside

  • New players will need to go through a large learning curve when using the Legendary Lab, which can be seen as more of an update for those who participated in the original Treasure Hunt.

Why You Should Care

The Augments added to the Genopets game provide additional functionality to each pet. The ones with the lowest percentage in drop rate will likely be the most valuable due to their rarity.

This development is positive for Genpoets and other GameFi projects, as well as it is an indication of a healthy ecosystem, community, and development team. 

More competing move-to-earn (M2E) projects in the future will likely see this and follow in their footsteps in order to remain competitive.
