New Spawn

With a brand new season of Factions Onyx comes a brand new spawn! Check it out below:

Kill Effects

Introducing brand new Kill Effects! When you successfully kill a player, your chosen effect will happen. Currently you can choose from up to 10 effects, with each one being unlocked by winning them in Dungeons.

The spray effect will appear in the direction you're facing when a kill is secured and will hover there for a few seconds, or the particle effect will appear in the spot that your opponent dies.

Death Messages

Choose from many different types of death messages, for each death occasion! Did you drown, burn to death, or fall into the void? Each type of death has a handful of messages you can choose from to appear in chat when it happens. You can unlock death messages by winning them from Dungeons.

If you don't wish to see player's custom death messages in chat, then there is an option to disable them at the bottom of the menu.

To view what death messages you have available, do /deathmessages in chat, then once you have the menu up, click on your desired death occasion. You will be able to see that each category has up to 5 unique death messages that you can choose from!

We will be adding 4 awesome new scrolls to Factions - StatTrak, BlockTrak, Rename and Reorder Scrolls. Take a look at what each one does below:

This brand new consumable item, the StatTrak Scroll, allows you to keep track of how many kills you've managed to get on both players and mobs using the weapon that it's applied to. Once you've applied the scroll to the item of choice, it will be on that item forever.

Simply apply the StatTrak Scroll to the item you wish to use it on by dragging and dropping it. Shift-right-click to open up the menu where all of the stats are kept. The combined amount of players and mobs that you've killed will be shown next to the item's name.

BlockTrak Scroll
The BlockTrak Scroll allows you to keep track of how many blocks you've mined or chopped down using the tool that it's applied to. Once you've applied the scroll to the item of choice, it will be on that item forever.

Simply apply the BlockTrak to the item you wish to use it on by dragging and dropping it. Shift-right-click a block to open up the menu where all of the stats are kept. You'll be able to see which blocks you've broken as well as how many of that individual block you've destroyed. The total amount of blocks that you've broken will be shown next to the item's name.

Rename Scroll
Make the name of your tools, weapons or armor more colorful with the brand new Rename Scroll! You will need to drag and drop this item onto the tool, weapon or armor of choice to consume it so that you can rename your item.

When you've consumed it, a prompt in chat will allow you type out your desired name. There will be color codes in chat to help you choose the perfect combination of colors for your item's new name! You will have up to 5 minutes to name your item, if you exceed this time limit the Rename Scroll will be placed back in your inventory.

Rearrange Scroll
Like the name says, this new Scroll rearranges the enchantments on your tools, and places them in order of importance - with the highest tier being first in the list, and the lowest tier being last. Each enchantment rarity will have the enchantments ordered alphabetically and by level, to make it look even more satisfying!

Map 50 of Factions Onyx

To celebrate the huge milestone of reaching Map 50 of Factions Onyx, for this map only, everyone will receive a rank equivalent to top rank and a kit containing protection 6, unbreaking 6 armor!

To ensure that alt accounts are not used to obtain large amounts of this armor, you will be required to complete a number of small challenges in the ArchonPass /pass to obtain the rank and kit.

As usual, normal ranks, tags, disguises, monthly kits and custom ranks / kits will all still be available to those that already have them, purchase them or obtain them in-game.

We are thankful that you, the players, use your time to participate in many of Onyx's highly competitive maps over the last 2+ years and we will always appreciate your support for TheArchon. We can't wait to see what the future brings, but we hope to see you there!

Additional Changes

Last but not least, here are a number of miscellaneous changes:

  • We have added the Events Bundle to the server store.
  • We will be increasing the roster size to 15.
  • We will be increasing the cost to mine spawners after they change from being free during the majority of grace from 40% to 60% of the shop price of the spawner.
  • We will be running a Sugarcane, Fishing, Woodcutting alongside Silverfish (Mycelium) economy.
  • We will be removing the Faction Missions increasing your faction power due to them no longer giving an advantage.
  • We will be increasing an item to efficiency 12 instead of efficiency 10 when Infusion is added to an item.
  • Introducing the command /gacd or /gacooldown to allow you to view your God Apple cooldown.
  • Added the command /temp to show you the temporary permissions you have access to and when they will run out.
  • We will be adding a move here option in the Sand Bots menu to help make using Sand Bots more efficient.
  • We will be automatically updating Farmable Chests at an interval to give you an extra hand, just in case you forget to update it manually.
  • We will be adding the commands /f top active and /f ptop active which will show F Top and P Top but only the factions that do not have any type of shield enabled.

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.
