You may choose any available feature of the same or lower rarity.
You only have to include the highest rarity on the masterlist entry.
✦ Patch Coverage
Patches MUST cover the horns, hooves, and at least half the tail and all branch areas. These patches cannot be removed!
Patch coverage allowance is determined by the trait rarity. Patches can never cover flora, hair or eyes but can cover most other parts as the rarity increases! The % used when determining patch rarity is often rough, please try to avoid the cusp as it may get the design rejected if it's determined to be high coverage!
Aside from the face, ears, and tongue, any spot on the main body can have a patch! If you place patches on the back or a place otherwise not easily visible please be sure to provide a reference when submitting your design.
✦ Patch Shape
Patches at a baseline can take on any simple symmetrical shape. At the uncommon tier they can move on to asymmetrical. The only shapes not available by default are stars and moons, which only require the corresponding marking item to apply.
✦ Patch Patterns, Color, and Markings
Patches can be any color by default with gradients, solid colors, and alternating colors. However, to have splotchy colors and randomly placed colors it will be uncommon.
✦ Elemental Patches
To have patches with elemental effects or entirely made of a solid non-standard material (such as glass) it would classify as a feyblood trait. Feyblood traits are not yet openly available and are presently only available on certain auctions!
Patch traits stack! The rarity of the trait is determined by the rarest feature present. If you have rare patches you can have as many rare, uncommon, and common patch traits from this list.
You can see more details patch traits and their rarity below.
Hybrid Patch TraitsTo have patches with the following features you will need specific items. These features are not separate traits and require no extra traits or items. They are only a bonus possibility when applying the trait listed.These can be applied regardless of base patch rarity. Example: You don't need uncommon asymmetrical patches to apply the moon shaped patch since you are using a rare item.
