    Hello Heroes and Villains!

    We are proud to announce that Skyblock will be revamped on Saturday March 7th 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.

    There will actually be new features

    Our Skyblock Team has been working hard to create a new upcoming REVAMP. This season we have reflected on the feedback we have received from our community from our previous few maps. We have tried to address many of the issues by implementing balancing features. Our goal with this season is to create a well-balanced starting point for the next few Skyblocks where we can add more interesting features and updates by working closely with our community. For this season of Skyblock, we have decided to completely revamp our Economy, Crates, Kits, Challenges, and much more because one of the main complaints about our previous releases is the lack of effort and repetitive content. We have also acknowledged that a spawner only economy is very boring thus becoming one-dimensional as all you really do is AFK and sell, so the economy will start with heavy farming and then slowly shifting into AFK methods to obtain money while keeping some farming aspects relevant. Expect heavy nerfs and changes to the economy compared to our previous few seasons as we are trying to shift away from OP Skyblock.

    ~ Key Features ~

    Server Milestones

    Throughout this season, there will be milestones that you and the server as a whole will work towards. Contributing towards these milestones will help you unlock key progression features which will allow you to advance on Skyblock.

    Farming and Spawner Progression
    All players will start with access to only plant the most basic crop: Wheat. You will need to work your way up to better crops by grinding it and eventually unlock basic spawners which you can work your way up to the top tier spawners.

    Brand New Challenges
    For this season, we have brand new custom challenges that will act as a guide for you. These challenges will help you and your island progress further throughout the season by rewarding you with money, Buycraft items, new features, and much more! These challenges will tie in with the farming and spawner progression that I previously mentioned.

    Progressively Unlocked Shop
    The majority of categories in the shop will be locked until you progress to certain points this season, whether it be challenges, farming and spawner progression, etc.

    ~ Additional Features ~

    Island Upgrades
    Island upgrades will actually work. What I mean is that it will no longer break if the island owner is not online. All known bugs have been fixed and we even added some new upgrades which you will now purchase with island points.

    New Shop
    Everything in the shop is no longer just listed on a page in a GUI. This shop actually has categories, color, and no longer hurts to look at.

    Stacked Spawners
    We have heard your complaints about spawners. We know what it is, so no worries! Stacked Spawners will FINALLY spawn the correct amount of mobs! No more placing unstacked spawners!!

    Sell Wands
    A useful tool that will help you sell every item in a storage unit with a single right-click.

    Craft Wands

    A useful tool that will help you craft ingots and nuggets into blocks in a storage unit with a single right-click.

    Harvester Sell Tool

    Automatically sell crops you manually grind for more.

    Crop Hopper
    Automatically collects all crops within a chunk.

    Mob Hopper

    Automatically collects all mobdrops within a chunk. This includes mobs that die from lava, fall, drowning, and players. You can shift-right-click to filter useless items.

    Ore Hopper

    Automatically collects all mined minerals and ores within a chunk. You can shift-right-click to filter useless items.

    Deep Storage Units

    These will storage an infinite amount of one item. It works with spawners when you place it in the correct chunk and you can even sell wand the items inside it. Alternatively, you can link these up with crop/mob/ore hoppers to store specific items when it gets collected.

    ~ Updates and Bug Fixes ~
    Mobcoins have been removed from Skyblock. Mobcoins only really benefited the top teams as they would control the economy and buy out all the mobcoins.
    Spawners now stack to 5 instead of unlimited.
    Ore Generators have been heavily nerfed for start of season and will gradually increase in ore rates.
    Kits have also received nerfs which will follow closely to progression of the server.
    Island upgrades no longer reset when Skyblock reboots and don't glitch out anymore.
    Few new upgrades have been added to island upgrades.
    McMMO is now capped at level 250 until certain progression updates.
    McMMO donator multiplier removed.
    Starter islands redesigned along with nether islands.
    Paragon shop will also be added to Skyblock 24 hours after release.
    We will also be running events on Skyblock frequently so stay tuned for those after release!!!
    AFK Minions will be released later in the season.
