So as you may have heard the first ever staff character has been released Its...
He has been released due to a birthday update it took me about 2 hours to encounter him. So if you see him i strongly advice you pay one soul gem to capture him. However their is a short cut to get him if you spend 100,000 Gold you will get the egg without the trouble of capturing it.
<--- That's the egg you can buy or hunt for.
However to upgrade him to veteran you need to pay 10 soul gems. And if you do this , this year next year you will get the mastered version free!
