New Spawn

With a new season comes a new spawn! Check out the awesome Christmas themed design below:

Lockdown Notify

We will be adding Lockdown Notify to Onyx after trialing it on Ruby for 2 seasons.

When a raiding faction begins a Lockdown on your faction, a 4 minute timer will start. Once the 5 minutes is up, the defending faction will be notified that they are being raided. This will allow the raiding faction to potentially cannon through around 11 chunks of your base before the faction who is being raided are aware, thus resulting in wall checking still being vital for base defense.

A Faction permission will be added that allows the faction to choose who controls the settings of this feature using a menu. In this menu there will be an explanation about the feature, as well as an option to turn off the notify when it triggers, an option to change the chat message that is sent, and an option to change how frequently the message is sent in chat. There will also be an option for the faction to turn it off entirely.

Additional Content

  • We will be removing Health Boost in an attempt to balance the damage dealt in PvP.
  • Due to the removal of Health Boost, we will be modifying the custom enchants used in Gkits from the store as well as ones already used in-game, the GodSet kit in Duels, the custom enchant books given out in the Monthly Kit, and the custom enchants in rewards given out during the Raid Event & FvF Event.
  • We will be adding new tags to crates that will be Christmas themed.
  • We will be changing the disguises in crates to Christmas themed ones.
  • Buffed the amount of Deity Keys given out.
  • Buffed the rewards from Boss Keys.
  • Instead of giving out a 1.5x Essence Booster for capturing the Main Outpost during Grace, instead you will receive a 2x Spawner Booster.
  • We will be increasing the TNT depositing into containers radius from 16 blocks to 48 blocks.
  • Instead of swords being used to destroy cobwebs, pickaxes will instead be used to 1 hit destroy them to ensure players don’t accidentally break cobwebs while PvPing.
  • We will be adding /pfocus [name] which will allow you to target a specific player resulting in a color change to the name above that players head. You will be able to target a player personally or target a player as a faction.
  • Each category in the Leaderboards /lb, will have its own hologram at spawn allowing for players to view the important leaderboards easily when at spawn. You will be able to click the hologram to look at different leaderboards within the category.
  • We will be adding Death Bans to the Raiding Outpost World.

Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Onyx reset!
