New Mycelium Spawn

New Outpost

To get to the Clayworld, do /warp clayworld.

New Content

Chat Quiz

You can now participate in server related trivia questions, math problems or unscramble questions that will appear in chat periodically!

Be the first person to answer the question correctly and win $100,000!

/F Top Revamp

The /f top command has been revamped to show you the current worth and potential worth of a faction as well as a rundown of what type of spawners they have and how many of each.

The potential worth is an estimate of how much that faction is worth when their spawners reach their maximum levels.

When you do the /f top command, hover your mouse over each faction to get the additional details.

Creeper Spawner Changes

Creeper spawners will now cost $3,000,000 in the shop with their maximum /f top value also being $3,000,000. The mining costs for Creeper spawners will be doubling to $1,200,000 as a result.

Creeper drop rates will be cut in half for the whole map. This means during Raiding/TNT, there is a 50% chance that 1 piece of TNT will drop from a Creeper and during Grace there is a 10% chance.

New Outpost

We will be adding a second Outpost. This new Outpost will be located in the Mycelium World which can be reached via the End Portal.

Capturing this will give you a 1.5x Nether Star drop rate from Silverfish which can stack with the Fish Sword and a 1.5x EXP Booster.

Your faction cannot hold more than 1 Outpost at any given time. They will be able to neutralize an Outpost but unable to go any further if they already have the other outpost captured.

Mobcoin Shop revamp

The MobCoin Shop will receive a massive revamp and will now hold better items. This includes items like Void Chests, Stacker Wands, tools, armor, Infusion Pickaxes, Snowballs and more. Access the Mobcoin shop by doing /mobshop.

As well as this we are also introducing the Limited MobCoin Shop. This shop will allow you to purchase a small quantity of limited time items, with items changing and rotating to new items over time.

King of The Hill Updates

Due to the increased in activity on the server, we will be increasing the frequency of which events are happening at peak times. The events that will appear more often are KoTHs, Envoys and Boss spawns.

As a result of this change, we will be increasing the price of KoTH starters in the Mobshop.

KoTH rewards have also been updated, you can now receive the following:

1st Place – 3 Koth keys
2nd place – 2 Koth keys
3rd place – 1 Koth key

Additional Changes

-Onyx will now have a 115 Man Roster with with the option to remove 4 players a day or a maximum of 8 at one-time if you save them up. This limits how many people can join your roster as once you hit the limit, you will only be able to kick 4 people a day once this enables on Monday @ 3AM EST.

-/f corners will show the corners of the 6 main worlds and whether the corners are claimed or unclaimed, but won’t show the faction owning it.

-A dispenser limit of 3,500 dispensers per cannon will be added.

-Only 5,000 gen buckets will be allowed to be generating at any one time for your faction – Don’t worry though, you’ll need loads of faction members genning before you hit this limit.

-We will be balancing the Archon Pass further.

-Sugarcane sell price will be lowered to $18 per sugarcane.

-/near will receive a 30 second cooldown.

-/f baltop & /flb will now show all players in your Faction Roster.

-While infected, a timer for how long this remains for will popup when using the PvP scoreboard.

-The Grind enchantment will be nerfed to give a smaller exp buff.

-Due to how easy it is to build godsets, you will now require more EXP to spin for books in /enchant. To spin a Level 1 enchant you will require the equivalent EXP of 20 levels, to spin a level 2 enchant it will be 40 levels & level 3 enchant will be 60 levels.

-You will now be able to view how many strikes every faction has in-game by looking at their faction information using /f who.

-You will not be able to use a Stacker Wand during Phase 1 of Lockdown near the active raid.

-You will now be able to buy horizontal cobweb GenBuckets for a price of $100 per GenBucket.

-During the first 30 minutes of the start of the world, Faction Fly will be disabled & the Queue System will be used to ensure the start of the world is a lot smoother

-There will not be any Raid Events on the first Saturday & Sunday of the map

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