    [​IMG]


    Spawners

    • New command added to check which mobs have custom spawners and their custom mob drops - /mobdrops
      • [​IMG]
    MobCoins
    You can obtain MobCoins by killing mobs manually or setting up grinders.

    YES! Mob coins can even travel through hoppers and into chests.
    [​IMG]

    MobCoin Commands
    • /mobcoins balance - Check how many MobCoins you have
    • /mobcoins pay (name) (amount) - Send someone some of your mobcoins
    • /mobcoins upgrade - Open the upgrade menu to increase the number of mobcoins you get from various mobs!
    Custom Items & Wands
    This reset comes with many custom tools and items that can assist you with many trivial tasks but also enhance game-play. You can find almost ALL of these new custom items in the /shop (under misc section) or in /crates, supply crates or the /token shop

    Sell Hoe Improvements
    • Breaks entire grown stack of Sugar Cane and Cactus.
    • Can break/sell wheat at any growth size
    • Can now be used to break/sell Carrots, Potato and Netherwarts
    Wands

    Faction Inspect
    You can now keep track of what is going on in your faction claims! This is very useful if you believe you are being insided or betrayed. Use the command /f inspect (page) to check recent changes/interactions made to blocks/chests in your claims. Use /f inspect to toggle it from the menu as shown here and then right click any blocks you want to inspect with your fist:
    [​IMG]

    You can check for blocks broken and who took items out or put items into chests.
    Not every block is logged, only valuable and base building blocks.
    This new feature can be expanded on greatly depending on its performance impact.

    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 enderchests scattered around the worlds (main, end and moon) 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.
    Boss Eggs:

    We’ve added a new feature that we think you’ll love. We have implemented Boss Eggs! To introduce everyone slowly to this new element, only the executioner boss in varying difficulties will be available. Don’t be unalarmed however, as these bosses are meant to be team centered and fought with your faction due to their strength. The rewards will constantly be improved, but here’s a sneak peek at a few of them so far.

    [​IMG]

    With rewards ranging from silverfish spawners, to Burst 2 pickaxes, we’re sure the boss eggs will be thoroughly enjoyed. As of now, there is only two ways of obtaining these boss eggs, supply crates or crates, however this may be expanded upon in the future.

    Enchant Relics:

    Enchant relics modify how many Custom Enchants can be put on an item. Every time you combine a enchant relic with a tool/item, the max amount of enchantments the item can hold increases by one. Different Ranks will have a max amount of times the items can be increased. The default for now is a max of two per item/tool.


    [​IMG]

    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 Enchants:
    • Custom Enchants are enabled on Factions Time, Dream, and Nature; however all combat Custom Enchants have been removed from Apollo. The enchantments range from enchantments to assist in grinding/mining to PvP abilities and boosts. Custom Enchantments are constantly tweaked and improved over time so expect to see updates with new enchantments on a regular basis.
    • To open the Custom Enchants menu use /enchanter or the NPC at /spawn. To view a list of enchants and their descriptions, type: /enchants (or /ce.) A GUI will pop up;

    This is a mini event within Factions where factions battle against other factions to take control of a capture zone for 3 minutes and in return receive a KOTH Rewards Crate:
    • 2 KOTH maps (Built to minimize FPS lag and big enough for capping and pvping)
    • Koths are scheduled to run twice everyday at 6 PM and 6 AM EST. (Subject to change after testing). Use /koth schedule list to view the times.
