    Factions and SkyBlock will be resetting on the 1st of December @ 4PM EST (Click for count down)
    We will also be releasing a new SkyBlock gamemode called OPSKYBLOCK.

    Over the next few days will be updating the wiki for Factions and SkyBlock to provide full game information and details for the reset but here's a quick change-log of what's new for the resets!

    FACTIONS
    • New spawns and themes/names
      • [​IMG]
      • [​IMG]
      • [*][​IMG]
        [*][​IMG]
    • Lower terrain height (Y:40)
    • Larger, flatter biomes
    • World Border improvements
      • Past the world border is just void
      • Glitching past the world border in 1.7 is no longer possible
      • Entities no longer spawn outside the border
      • You can no longer claim outside the worldborder
      • Nether warp added - /warp nether
      • No nether ceiling in nether
    • Heroic Items
      • This is a new concept that encourages players to race around the map during SOTW and unlock AWESOME new items. When the server resets on December 1st, there will be 9 enderchests scattered around the worlds (main, end and moon) (3 in each world) containing new Heroic Items! These are super OP items that you can take advantage of such as Burst 2 (5x5 mining pickaxe), Protection 6 Armor and more!
      • Holding these items will give you the ultimate advantage however, players will be able to track the location of Heroic Items with the command /heroicitems even if they are hidden away in chests or the player is offline.
      • This will encourage others to hunt down the player holding the heroic item. Heroic Items cannot be stored in enderchests, player vaults, or /bin.
    • Warzone Warrior (Warzone FFA)
      • To encourage PvP in the warzone, players will now be rewarded for staying longer in the warzone and closer to the spawn!
      • [​IMG]
      • Once you kill your first player in the warzone, a timer and killstreak tracker begins to track your kills and how long you stay in the warzone. Unlock cash, exp, items and more for pvping!
    • Custom anti-cheat added
      • Hackers will now be auto-banned
    • Crate rewards buffed
      • Daily Key/Crates added
    • GenBuckets now load/save on restarts!
      • Genbuckets no longer take your lava bucket, you will just be charged for it
    • Beacons, Hoppers, Doors, Trap doors, and chests can now be blown up with TNT even if under water, they cannot be blown up through walls, trap doors will be unaffected in cannons
    • Enderpearling re-enabled in the Warzone
    • Level Spawners have been removed
    • Cannon warp removed
    • Token shop buffed and improved
    • New /graceperiod command - Displays when the grace period will end and information when you try to raid other factions with Creeper Eggs/TnT
      • [​IMG]
    • You can increase the max players in your faction with /f upgrades
    • You can now click to claim chunks from /f map
      • [​IMG]
    • New /lff command
      • Type /lff to view a list of faction-less players so you can invite them to your faction
      • [​IMG]
    • TnT player damage and knockback disabled
    • Coinflips - /cf are now run in chat, this is to combat the issue with players being interrupted during pvp
    • Coinflip winners are now broadcasted in chat
    • Enderpearling into ally claims while flying is now disabled
    • New /f owner (radius) command
    • Increased max lottery tickets to 5 - /lotto buy 5
    • Emerald blocks added to /f top
    • LMS and KoTH rewards redone and buffed!
    • LMS armor adjusted.
    • 10 new custom enchants!
      • You can now view enchant information by left clicking enchant books
        • upload_2017-11-27_12-15-43.png
      • Even though Fertilizer isn't a new enchantment, it was rather useless before. Fertilizer's chance of activating has increased by a bunch, but also now works in a radius!
        Level I activates a 1x1 area (1 block)
        Level II activates a 3x3 area (9 blocks)
        and Level III activates a 5x5 area (25 blocks)
        Here's a video to demonstrate what I mean:[​IMG]


        Harvester
        This enchantment acts as burst, but for harvesting.
        Level I does a 3x3 area
        Level II does a 5x5 area
        [​IMG]

        Seeder
        This enchantment automatically replants fully grown crops! It is also compatible with harvester, which means farming galore :)

        Compactor
        Imagine fitting a miniature piston into your shovel, now imagine no more! This enchantment has a 25% chance to compact items into a more sturdy version of itself.
        Sand -> Sandstone
        Red Sand -> Red Sandstone
        Soul sand -> Quartz Item
        Snow block -> Ice
        Clay - > Hard Clay

        Applies to shovel
        Level I has a 25% chance to activate

        Magma Welding
        Ever dipped your shovel in lava and brought it back out just to see the smoldering heat emit from it? This enchantment applies heat to your shovel, meaning you can automatically smelt some blocks to form a new block.

        Sand -> Glass
        Red Sand -> Glass
        Clay - > Brick Items

        Applies to shovel
        Level I has a 50% chance to activate
        Level II has a 75% chance to activate
        Level III has a 100% chance to activate

        Resurrect
        Repairs a broken item entirely, however when the item breaks the enchantment is removed.
        Applies to all tools.

        Prismarine Aspect
        Gain a chance to pick up prismarine shards while mining stone.

        Applies to pickaxes
        Level I has a 10% chance to pick up a prismarine shard

        Bleeding Vein
        Mine all ores in a 5x5x5 vicinity of the centre ore, it only works for the same ore type (so if you mine coal, you will not mine the iron ore near it).

        Applies to pickaxes
        Level I has a 5x5x5 radius

        Gust
        Burst for axes, if you cut down a piece of wood it clears away the leaves near it.

        Applies to axes
        Level I has a 3x3 radius
        Level II has a 5x5 radius

        AntiGravity

        Applies to Leggings
    • More faction missions - /missions
    • 3 New Upgrade-able Mob Spawners added
      • Chicken
      • Creeper
      • Witch
    • [OPFactions] Bedrock GenBuckets added
    FTOP Prizes:
    • 1st Month:
      • Dragon Egg to the Top Faction (1st Place) (This gives you a 5% sell boost)
    • End of Map:
      • 1st Place: $300 Buycraft Voucher to the Faction Leader + [*FactionName] Tag to each faction member + reserved faction name for next map.
        • *This is a tag named after your faction name

      • View all ranks and their prices with /ranks. Rank up with /rankup

      • These are new unlockable powers/abilities that you can use in your island! This was a big hit on Survival so we've decided to add it to SkyBlock too!

      • Use /abilities to enable/disable abilities
        • [​IMG]
    • 10 new custom enchants!

    Looking forward to this skyblock reset! However I'm sort of against the idea of sell wands for Skyblock since it will make people use these more instead of trying to save tokens for the sell chest perk.

    Okay, so the server is staying the same basically (new names ofc) with the addition of a new server of OpSkyblock. Ok, this will better help bc if you add that much overpoweredness to a regular skyblock it will be three op skyblock server, smart thinking. CANT wait until this reset! :) I think a lot of us have been waiting a long time!
