    Hello Heroes and Villains!

    We are proud to announce that Skyblock will be reset on Saturday, September 12th at 4:00 PM EST!
    (Use this to convert the above time to your own timezone.)

    NOTE: The current Skyblock will be replaced by the revamped version meaning that all progress on the old Skyblock will be lost.

    The current skyblock will be taken down on the 11th of September at 12pm EST.

    The last skyblock was a step in the right direction but we hit the issue that after a while skyblock became too afk'd and there were a few issues with the eco. Our changes this season have been directed to fix those issues and make it more enjoyable and rewarding to grind!

    ~ Payouts ~
    We all love free money! Each week the top 3 islands will receive buycraft payouts this Skyblock Map. The following amounts will be given out to the Islands Leader:
    Island Top #1 - $75 Buycraft
    Island Top #2 - $50 Buycraft
    Island Top #3 - $25 Buycraft


    ~ Key Features ~

    Mob Stacks
    When killing mob stacks the entire stack will die, even when killed by a player! They will also drop the whole stacks worth of experience now! If a mob stack isn't killed by a player, they will drop a quarter of the drops they would otherwise drop rewarding those players that grind a lot.

    XP Shop
    Players will be able to spend their experience on new spawners at /xpshop, you will be able to bulk buy spawners as well in groups of 1x, 10x and 64x! Players that spend their time grinding will now pull ahead of other islands and make their way to island top #1!

    Eco Revamp
    Eco has been revamped to get less out of hand after a couple of days in order for it to last longer, things like cobble cubes, enchant prices and more have also been changed in order fit the eco better and help improve maps to last longer!

    Spawner Changes
    You will only be able to place one stack of each type of spawner per chunk, this will introduce new ways to farm spawners as well as different types and efficiencies of farms! Mob stacking will remain the same as it has been with the changes above!
    We also know players have wanted a method to remove spawners from the stack so we have implemented that for this season too. The eco has also been adjusted so spawners won't be in the hundreds of thousands, making placing spawners easier and less time-consuming.

    Soul Shards
    Due to XP becoming a larger economy, soul shards will be removed as they're both gained the same way so they have been effectively merged with the XP economy.

    Daily Rotation
    Mob drops have been removed from daily rotation as the impact it caused on the eco caused a lot of damage after a couple of weeks. Crops will remain in daily rotation though.

    Island Upgrades
    There will be a new island upgrade for max spawner stack size! You will be able to upgrade the maximum amount of spawners you can stack, allowing you to create better and smaller farms!

    Island Vault
    The island vault system has been completely recoded to patch all the issues that existed with the previous system. They will work flawlessly now and allow your entire island to stash items in a virtual shared chest.

    ASync Issues
    Last season there were issues that caused severe issues with performance, effecting the TPS quite severely so we made some patches to some methods of farming, however, this caused issues of its own. This season we have gone ahead and targeted the root of the issues directly hopefully leading to a much smoother season than before.
