New Spawn

Information Update

For the Factions realms, we've made a number of brand new menus explaining important features that you need to know if you want to be a top tier faction. Previously it was hard to find out information about these features, making it harder for new factions to learn the ropes on The Archon.

This menu has information regarding 9 major Factions features including Chunk Hoppers, Void Chests, /printer, Farmable Chests, /roam, Mycelium, /f spectate, GenBucket and Sandy.

You can now view detailed information about what Spawner Chunks are and how to use them on Factions. This includes important information on how to not abuse Spawner Chunks, how to find them, and how to remove them.

This menu explains in depth how Faction Top is calculated. Previously there was little to no information about this, which caused a lot of confusion amongst factions. The /ftopinfo menu shows you what can influence /f top, as well as Mob Spawner values.

This new menu lists the full worth of all spawner types, as well as the value amount they increase by every 12 hours. Now you can easily understand how much your spawners are worth!

Economy Changes

This map of Onyx will be a Sugarcane and Fishing economy alongside Silverfish (Mycelium). This means that the following prices and features have been updated:

  • Based on feedback, Sugarcane’s sell price will be increased from $30 to $40.
  • As a result of the above, the price to sell fish will be buffed to match Sugarcane in the safe lake.
  • As well as this, Netherstar’s sell price will be buffed to $15,000.

Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Onyx reset! Make sure that you keep updated with the rules and store changes as we progress through this season.
