Illuvium Introduces Illuvitars – Your Personalized Avatar for The Metaverse


Illuvitars are avatar NFTs that are tied to the players’ accounts and can be utilized across all Illuvium games. The sale will include 150 Genesis NFTs, and the start date has yet to be determined.

Illuvitars are made up of two components: the avatar itself, representing the most popular Illuvium characters to date, and accessories. Accessories are bound to the avatar through 5 available slots: headwear, eyewear, skin, bodywear, props. 

Buyers can customise their Portrait with Accessories. Each avatar and accessory follows a six tier system: virtual, bronze, silver, gold, platinum, diamond. The higher the Tier, the higher the chances of getting an Accessory that is more rare.

Accessories are not required but present a fun way to add flair to your Illuvitar. Accessories are an additional layer that “bonds” permanently to the Portrait.

Players can choose to bond their Portrait with an Accessory as long as that slot is available. Players can bond multiple slots in a single transaction.

Avatars and accessories are minted separately and come into randomized crates. All purchases will be finalized on the IlluviDex, Illuvium’s custom marketplace. Some avatars and accessories are not available for purchase and will be dropped in-game only.

One example of accessories not available for purchase are “borders”. Borders are earned by achieving high ranks in the leaderboard or by completing special quests in the game. They’re tied to the account and won’t be transferred even if you sell your Illuvitars, but can be swapped between all your available avatars.

Buy And Customize Your Illuvitar

There’s no date for the sale yet, but we know it will be a unique batch of 150 genesis avatars.

There’s no cap to how many Illuvitars can be minted, the genesis collection is simply a first batch of some of the most popular Illuvium creatures. Each batch of Illuvitars is unique and will never be minted again.

All buyers can purchase an unlimited amount of Illuvitars and Accessories. Obviously, the rarer the drop, the more expensive it can become on the secondary market.

You can customize your Illuvitar from an internal application you can preview on the announcement page. As long as a slot is available or can be freed up, you can assign a new accessory to it.

Accessories come into two different kinds of crates: random and semi-random. Random crates will return a random accessory for a random slot after the mint. Semi-random crates will drop a random accessory for a specified slot. 

Illuvitars will be purchasable with ETH or sILV2. The Illuvium Vault receives all sales revenue and distributes it to ILV Stakers through Revenue Distribution. 100% of the revenue from the sale and subsequent marketplace royalties goes directly into the Illuvium Vault.

What is Illuvium

Illuvium is an open-world RPG adventure game on the Ethereum blockchain, while using Immutable X. Players journey across a vast and varied landscape to hunt and capture all kinds of creatures, the so-called illuvials. Together with their little creatures, players need to discover what caused the cataclysm that shattered the world.

From a gameplay perspective, players need to capture creatures. There are initially already more than 100 Illuvials to find and capture. Each monster has different attributes and powers. There are also different classes and abilities. Capture them, upgrade them and combine two Iluvials to fuse a new one.

Gamers can earn ILV tokens through play, and become part of the community through token ownership.

Players can store their Illuvials on so-called Shards, a bit like a collectible card. These cards hold the essence of an Illuvial. You can trade the shards in the marketplace or give them to a friend.
