Hey Heroes! Over the past few weeks, @McFluffinstein and I have been working hard with lots to show for it! This week's updates are bringing a ton of new content for you to all enjoy to our brand new minigame, Nexus. Team Upgrades The community suggested that we add some sort of upgradeable feature to Nexus and we’ve listened! Located within the shop stand at your base, you’ll see a new NPC, which can be used to purchase various team upgrades. These upgrades are purchasable only by emeralds and due to this we’ve replaced the redstone mine with an emerald mine. Below are the upgrades currently available on Nexus: Iron Golem Guardian (256 Emeralds): Say hello to your new best friend! This upgrade spawns an Iron Golem near your nexus which will target and attack enemies trying to lower your team’s health! The golem starts with 500 HP and is only purchasable once, meaning when he dies you cannot re-purchase a new guardian. Double Ores - 60 seconds (128 Emeralds): This upgrade will give your whole team the ability to get double ingots from mining ores for 60 seconds. This upgrade has a cooldown of five minutes, meaning once the 60 seconds is over, you must wait another 4 minutes before re-purchasing it. Enderchest (32 Emeralds): We've noticed that the enderchest is used a lot within Nexus and instead of offering it freely at the start of the game, players must now purchase it for their team. Once purchased, the enderchest will spawn back at location you’re all used to! New Classes We've also added two new classes to Nexus by popular request! Tank (15,000 Gems): You are on the front line wreaking havoc on enemies. As a tank, you will be able to take a large amount of damage due to your permanent Regeneration II, however you’ll also be disadvantaged due to your permanent Slowness I. Vampire (15,000 Gems): As a master of the night, you will gain permanent Regeneration I in dark places. You also have a 25% chance to suck life from your enemies when attacking them, which adds to your own health! Phase Timer The Phase timer has moved to a boss bar instead of being in the action bar. The bar health moves in correspondence to the timer. If you're in 1.8, the bossbar will always show as full - however if you're in 1.9+, the bossbar will count down to the end of each phase! We hope you enjoy these updates to the growing new mini-game.
