for the last few months i have been creating a new bot called Bastet. It is a multi-purpose bot for Empires and Puzzles Discord servers, it is already on 30+ servers and i think it is finally ready to be shared here on the forum too. Bastet uses the new slash command system that Discord started enforcing on bots at September 2022, so it works a bit differently than many previous enp bots.
I’ll introduce some of the main features:
Search for hero/guides/etc:
Bastet has many different search functions
All searches works with autocomplete so you don’t have to remember all the long commands and what to type in letter-by-letter:
After finding the hero or item that you want to see, select it from the list and send the message.
When multiple results are found, bot shows you a list that you can browse and select which one to show:
Hero search shows you the result with image of hero card, basic information about hero, and stats with some calculated variations.
This one is just for fun, it’s lets you summon a random hero once a day:
Odds are similar to game so be prepared for the Dawas.
Extract text from images. Useful for alliances that keeps track of war scores etc.
Feedback is important. If you encounter any problems, maybe notice some hero has outdated skill description, have suggestion that you think would be great addition to the bot, or just want to say hi, use /feedback command for all those. I don’t promise that i will add what gets suggested but who knows, ideas are always welcome.
And here is a full list of all commands the bot currently has:
I think that covers the main functionalities, Discord introduced the new bot system not that long ago and it takes some time to get used to it and may feel a bit different, but it comes with some great features like autocomplete. One thing about the autocomplete (and some other elements) that is good to know, is that Discord has a limit of 25 items that it can show at once. So in example the /guide search will show only 25 autocomplete items at first (if nothing is typed in or there is more than 25 results), but as you start typing in something, it narrows the results down and will show what you search for. Same goes with the other searches like /hero name, /farm etc. It can be a bit misleading at first, but feel free to browse and try out what the bot has to offer, there is a lot of useful information (thanks to maryj), and more guides and other content will be added over the time.
Bastet is free to use and you can add it to any server you want. But since it has some upkeep and development costs that i am paying myself, i want to mention the possibility to support the project, more information can be found behind /donate command.
Here is the invite link that you can use to add Bastet to your server:
After inviting the bot, it should be available on all normal channels. If you want limit it to some specific channel(s), navigate to Server settings → Integrations → click Bastet and set it up similar to this:
I think that’s about it, new heroes will be added soon after they are released, more content to searches all the time (again thanks to maryj) and possibly new commands in the future. If you have any questions i try to answer them here as soon as i read them and have time to answer. You can also join the Unofficial Empires and Puzzles Discord server, you can test the bot there too if you don’t want to add it to your server just yet. We have a nice community there that will help you with the bot, questions about the game or just about anything you have in mind. Have fun and summon all the Dawas
