Greetings everyone, the newest season of Factions Ruby is here!Realm InformationThe next Ruby map will release on Saturday October 17th @ 3:00 PM EST/7:00 AM AEST/8:00 PM BST
Hey everyone! Halloween is nearly here, so this week we'll be introducing a special update that will be available on Factions, Skyblock, Prison and (soon to be) Robbery! Curses are events that take place for random online players, with rewards given upon completion.
What Are Curses?
Curses are random events given to any active online player (you won't be assigned a curse if you're AFK). Only 1 person can be cursed at any one time, and there will be an announcement in chat saying who the cursed person is and what type of curse they've been given.
When you've been cursed, a menu will pop up where you can accept or deny the Curse. This menu will tell you which Curse you'll need to do and what rewards you can get from completing it.
To complete a Curse, you must carry out the task that it requires you to do. These tasks will have time limits and must be completed in one life, meaning that if you die or log out, you'll fail. When you complete the Curse, you'll be given the reward.
How To Complete a Curse
Anyone who is in the process of completing a Curse can be killed at any time, no matter where they are on the server. This means they can be killed at spawn, or any other safe zone where you usually wouldn't be killed at.
Players who want to fight the cursed player must hit them first in order for PvP to be activated in a safe zone. Cursed players can't hit other players unless the other players hit them first, so if you don't hit the cursed player when they're actively doing a task, then you won't be put in combat and therefore are safe in the usual safe zones.
Players will get a broadcast in chat telling them the Cursed player's coordinates and what world they're in, so it is easier to locate where they are.
Types of Curses
Different realms, Factions, Skyblock or Prison, will have different types of Curses as well as some generic ones that are the same across all of the realms.
Here are just a few of the Curses that you can complete, to give you an idea of what to expect. We won't be showcasing all of them in this post so there's some surprises that you can look forward to seeing in-game.
- Tourist Curse: Visit 5 faction claims for 10s.
- Mycelium Curse: Create and travel through a Mycelium portal at a randomly assigned chunk.
- Defenseless Curse: Spend 3 minutes without armor within 50 blocks of /spawn
- Lumberjack Curse: Break 196 Logs at /forest.
- Zoologist Curse: Spend 5 minutes at outpost with a pet active.
- Traveler Curse: Visit the 4 border corners of /adventures.
- Midas Touch Curse: Touch all the gold blocks at /spawn.
- Journey Through Plots Curse: Visit 10 plots for 15 seconds.
- Willy Wonka Curse: Sell 32 candies to the candy seller at /spawn.
We hope you enjoy this week's server wide content update for Factions, Skyblock and Prison. Best of luck to any of the players who will be taking part in the Curse challenges and feel free to leave us your feedback on our Discord server in #player-suggestions!
