This Season's Changes

Due to this season of Factions Onyx being very different to our previous seasons, a lot of changes have been made to accommodate the smaller faction size and map length. Here's some information on the changes that you can expect to see this season.

Spawner Changes

  • We will be changing our Spawner percentage system this season. As a result, Spawners will gain 10% of their maximum /F Top Value every 8 hours until they reach 60%, then they will gain 10% of their maximum /F Top Value every 6 hours. This means it will take 3 days for your Spawners to have their maximum /F Top Value.
  • The amount of TNT dropped by Creepers will be increased to average 2.5 drops per Creeper (previously 1). The difference in % for the TNT to drop between Grace and Raiding will remain.
  • Emeralds, Blaze Rods, Gold Ingots and Iron Ingots will all sell for 2.5x their current sell price.
  • The number of Silverfish grinding areas has been reduced to 5 areas of 18 Spawners.

Economy Changes

  • This map of Onyx will be a Cactus economy alongside Silverfish (Mycelium) and Spawners.
  • There will be a limit of 48 Cactus Chests limiting you to 1200 chunks of Cactus.
  • You'll be required to buy the Cactus Chests from /shop to collect Cactus in a 5x5 chunk area like usual.
  • To ensure Cactus is not used after grace, Cactus Chests will stop collecting cactus when Grace is over like usual.
  • Cactus will sell for $1.5.
  • Netherstars will sell for $10,000.
  • Sugarcane will sell for $25.
  • The price of fish will be buffed to match Sugarcane.

Rule Updates

  • We have included that Auto Adjusts will be completely disallowed on our rules page.
  • We have included that you cannot have a source block ocean of any size or of any amount per side on our rules page.
  • Changed the number of bans resulting in a strike to 2 on our rule page.
  • We have stated Left Shooting on bases will not be allowed.
  • Stated Raid Claims can have a maximum size of 12 + base size x 12 + base size on our rules page.
  • Stated Anti Raid Claims can have a maximum size of 12 x 12 on our rules page.

Wilderness Fly

We will be adding Wilderness Fly specifically to Onyx for this upcoming map! This means that you will be able to use /f fly in Wilderness areas.

This addition doesn't mean you will be able to fly in enemy land, neutral land, Warzone or safezones. The same Faction Fly restrictions you currently have will still apply, this means that if a player comes within a certain distance, your Faction Fly will be disabled.

Similarly with Faction Fly currently, Wilderness Fly will also be disabled at the Start of the World.

Additional Content

  • Due to the new Mycelium Build resulting in the new position of the PvP Lake, we will be making it possible to obtain the Mega Rod without going to the PvP Lake, however going to the PvP lake will make obtaining the Mega Rod easier.
  • /F missions will cost less and will be more obtainable.
  • The amount of Boss, Deity & Koth keys will be buffed.
  • The timings in /grace will be modified to fit the new schedule.
  • The scheduled times for Raid Events will be changed.
  • The prizes for the Raid and FvF events will be changed.
  • The prizes for the Raiding Outpost will be changed and will be given out in shorter time periods, however it will be rewarding for the players attempting to capture it.
  • The requirements to obtain a maxed Fish Sword, Mega Rod and maxed Harvester Hoe will be reduced.
  • Lockdown Notify will remain with a 1 second delay before alerting the faction that they are getting raided.
  • Death Bans and Lives will be removed from PvP Worlds.

Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Onyx reset! We look forward to seeing what you have to say about the upcoming reset and can't wait to see you there.
