ALL Clearance Items + Weird Thing

Hey Jammers! I seem to have developed a cold in the middle of summer for NO REASON! I have still come to keep my promise of daily posting, but it might seem a little hasty today because I need to go sleep. 

With all the shops in Jamaa putting items on clearance this way and that, I thought it might be helpful to show you all the items you won't want to miss when they go. 

Jam-Mart-Furniture


Jam Mart Clothing


The Diamond Shop



 Outback Imports



Epic Wonders

If an item within a specific "theme" is on clearance, you can expect that the rest of that theme will soon leave with it. With that in mind, if you suspect an item of interest might be put on clearance soon, your best bet is to get it before you forget about it.

On another note, as I was looking through the shops of Jamaa, I noticed something interesting:


Diamond items and gem items in the same shopping catalog-- not just in Epic Wonders, but in shops all over! You're probably aware of that change already, but you might not be aware that I had suggested an idea like this to AJHQ awhile back: get rid of the Diamond Shop and move its items to Epic Wonders, still sold for Diamonds.

What I see here is different, but I wonder... did AJHQ implement this after reading my suggestion? Is this a step in the direction of the Diamond Shop's removal? Or is this all a coincidence I'm reading to much into? Only time will tell.

And before I go, a quick PSA:


These items and Mira/Zios Plushies with other decorations are NOT RARE. You can buy them in Jam-Mart-Furniture simply by changing the plushies' colors. DO NOT LET YOURSELF GET SCAMMED!

That's all for now, Jammers. See you in Jamaa!

Call of the Alphas Hints!

Hey Jammers! I don't normally do Journey Book guides, mostly because I think having all the answers handed to you kinda ruins the fun and challenge of a treasure hunt...

But I took one look at the massive map of Call of the Alphas and I just knew a guide would be important.


This has got to be the biggest most winding room on AJ-- and you don't even get a map! How crazy (and wonderfully challenging) is that?

Of course, we could all use a guide. However, I still don't want to completely ruin the fun by just giving you the coordinates of every item! 

So... how about some semi-cryptic hints to make this even more like a treasure hunt? Just like my riddle contest! :D

And, no, you silly, I'm not just doing this because it's fun to come up with dumb riddles... that's ridiculous! Ha ha... ha... ^-^;

I hope I can provide you with much-needed help AND make Call of the Alphas more fun at the same time!

There are a total of 12 of the Alphas' items to find, with two belonging to each Alpha. The following riddles describe the items'  locations in accordance with their owners.

Cosmo's Items

Item 1: You can't enter the circular door, it's just decoration. You look up at a tree in resignation. You see a green piece of fabric-- is it just your imagination? But it floats to the ground-- yes, this is Cosmo's Hat's location!

Item 2: You enter the stone palace, left paw leading the way. In the middle of flat rock some palm trees sway. Perhaps the Bag of Seeds beneath planted this oasis-- it's not moving at all, completely still in  its stasis.

Sir Gilbert's Items

Item 3: You're a little confused; if there is no need to fight, why would Sir Gilbert bring his Armor to a camping site?

Item 4: The desert heat plays tricks on your mind, but I swear that barrel over there is alive.

Greely's Items

Item 5: The wild wind blows wicked and cold, wherever the phantoms happen to go.

Item 6: In the palace of stone, way up above, there is a cave you can't get through no matter how hard you shove. But if you stay patient and wait a little while, out will come a book telling secrets that beguile.

Graham's Items

Item 7: While you wait by the clothesline rotated by gears, 30 seconds will feel like years.

Item 8: Searing lava will burn the fool and cause them pain, so who threw that tool out of the magma vein?

Liza's Items

Item 9: You cross the bridge 'cause you're not a fish, you see a patch of puffy dandelions and make a wish. 

Item 10: When you enter the desert through the gate, bring a compass or meet your fate.

Peck's Items

Item 11: The spiders of the rocky mountain might make more of an effort to decorate if they only had more paints.

Item 12: It seems the farmer dropped her earring while watering the carrots.

I really like this new Birds-of-Paradise-like party! It's actually challenging and fun, bringing a sense of accomplishment when it's completed. Thanks, AJHQ! :D

That's all for now, Jammers. See you in Jamaa!

Welcome to the Diamond Shop, May I take your Order?

Hey Jammers! Here I am with my first daily post of summer vacation. :D

You're probably already aware of the stuff I'm gonna talk about, but I will anyway because it makes me happy that some positive changes came in the past couple updates.

First of all, I really love the new loading screens.



They probably seem irrelevant to you, but I'm sensitive to colors and these are much more calming to look at than the flashier ones advertising the summer carnival or whatever. No headaches here! XD

Plus, they remind me a lot of older loading screens. In fact they might just be re-used loading screens. Totally fine with me!

Cool items are also for sale in Jam Mart Furniture:




I'm pretty sure these are for this AJ VidCon thing I keep hearing about, with AJ YouTube people competing on Team Mira and Team Zios, but even without that context these items are excellent. Love the banners! :D

Another "Wild Weekend" has come to the Diamond Shop, bringing a whole menu full of different spiked things.

















I hope you enjoyed my random screenshot comic. XD

Before I close this post, I want to let you know that yes, there will be another tomorrow! And the next day, and the next day... if all goes well! For once, after months of fragmented posting schedules, the daily posting I originally promised has returned at last with the leisure of summer vacation.

I also plan on updating this blog's layout, maybe making it a bit easier to navigate, and maybe even writing some new segments of Berry the Koala. 

All in all, it's going to be an awesome summer for me, and hopefully for you too! <(^.^)>

Peace out! (until tomorrow!)
