Hello Heroes and Villains! Hello everyone! We are finally ready to announce the release of the revamped Skyblock server. Although this has taken much longer than we anticipated, we have worked to provide you with a brand new Skyblock experience with tons of new features. Read below to see more about these features! We are proud to announce that Skyblock will be released on Saturday, April 3rd at 3:00 PM EST! ~ Important Information ~ After much discussion, we wanted to make this Skyblock less reliant on AFK gameplay and keep it engaging, even late into the season. A lot of the changes you will see below aim to make the season more playable for a longer period of time. To do this, we have added content that is worthwhile to grind as your island gets bigger and better. Spoiler: Skyblock Builds ~ Key Features ~ Currency and Economy Changes We've refined the currencies to two main currencies: credits and shards. Credits can be earned through most methods and will function as the primary currency. Shards will act similarly to beacons on Prison and can only be earned through manual grinding as well as pouches and crates. XP is a side currency that will be used for the revamped enchanting system. Island Upgrades We have decided to completely redo the island upgrade system. Island points have been completely removed and each upgrade will now have a milestone attached to it. Completing milestones will allow you to purchase the correlating upgrade. In addition to this, we have added many more upgrades: spawn rates, island member cap, island size, crop growth, crop sell, hopper limits, redstone limits, ore generators, and max spawner stack size. Island Power Island power will be a way to easily double all your automated production, things like spawners, robots, and more can run faster when provided enough power! Islands will be able to place down generators anywhere on their island and put one of several types of fuel in them to keep them running and will provide power to everywhere on the island! Robots Robots will be coming back but with a twist! There will be 4 types of robot with 5 tiers for each one, the 4 types are miner, farmer, lumberjack, and grinder! Unlike the previous seasons, these robots will all perform their tasks visually cutting down forests and mining ores! You will be able to upgrade 3 categories for each robot, its speed, its fortune, and its maximum capacity using shards! New PvE World - The Lost Island As the keen-eyed among you might have noticed, we have a build for a brand new world. This island was once a utopia but has been overrun by savage mobs. Players can warp to this island and harvest crops, mine shards, or fight dangerous creatures. Crops within the PvE area will give you a chance to earn fuel, crate keys, and more. Shards can be obtained by mining beacons around the island or slaying the mobs that inhabit the area. Daily Rotation Each day of the week will be assigned a booster for a crop that increases the price it is sold for. Players can do /dailyboost to view that week's rotation for what items will have a sell boost. Overhauled Custom Enchants Players can use the brand new /enchant GUI to access a menu that allows them to enchant any of the items in their inventory or on their character. All armor pieces, swords, pickaxes, axes, and hoes can be enchanted using the XP currency. We have worked to create tons of custom enchants that will enhance the Skyblock experience. Custom Crop Growth Crops now grow at custom rates that can be upgraded through your island. Players must hit certain milestones in order to upgrade the growth as well as spend a certain amount of credits. Collection Boxes Collection boxes will replace Deep Storage Units from previous seasons. These boxes function similarly to DSUs, but are able to store an unlimited amount of all mob drops, minerals, and crops. Best of all, they can collect and store all of these at once. Players can filter certain items in or out of the collection box and can easily withdraw and sell all items in the box. Crate Rewards Crate rewards have been completely redone to be much more worth for players and include a wider variety of rewards. Some of these rewards include pouches, generators, robots, collection boxes, and more! Boosters Similar to Prison, players can now obtain boosters that can boost the following: credits, XP, shards, and spawner rates. Boosters can be obtained through booster pouches, which can be found in crates. And many more features! We hope to see everyone at release!
