Hello everyone!

With a lot of time and effort put forward into this, Skyblock will be resetting on Prime this upcoming Friday (March 27th) at 1PM EST, check out all the latest bug fixes and newest features all below!

For a countdown that adapts to your own time zone, please click here.

Reset Information
All your previous progress made on the previous Skyblock realm will be wiped. If you previously owned a donator rank, it will be transferred to the new setup once the network is live. This also goes for any perks that remain on this season. Perks or other permanent items that were purchased in previous seasons have been added as a currency to /redeem.

What will be wiped:
  • All player balances
  • Inventories, ender chests, player vaults, and GUI based inventories.
  • Islands
  • Crate Keys
  • Consumable Items (Tools, weapons, armor, island value, spawners, etc)
What will be transferred:
  • Donator Ranks
  • Certain Addons
  • Tags/Titles
What's New?
Island Top Competition

Once again, Skyblock will give payouts for those that push themselves to be above others - where the best islands receive weekly rewards. Island Top rewards will be gathered every Monday at 6AM EST, and rewards are sent out within 72 hours. The layout for payouts is as follows:
  • First Place: $50 PayPal
  • Second Place: $40 BuyCraft
  • Third Place: $30 BuyCraft
  • Fourth Place: $20 BuyCraft
  • Fifth Place: $10 BuyCraft
Consumable items purchased 7 days before this post will be allowed to re-receive the item after the reset. Please either make a ticket on our discord, or alternatively, make a purchase support thread.

Reworked Economy
Through tireless efforts in order to re-balance the economy to be both farming and spawner based, we believe we have found a happy medium. Be sure to explore the new economy to figure out what is the best at which periods of time, and take those to your advantage.

Reworked Bosses
After long consideration of Bosses, we have gained community feedback on which bosses are not seen as challenging in any way, nor, are the prizes worthwhile. Therefore, after reworking these bosses, the rewards system has been altered completely to no longer give keys, but an assortment of rewards depending on your damage. The damage they deal and the health they have has been increased to be more competitive.

Reworked Crates
To cater to a brand new economy, we have reworked the rewards of crates to better suit it. No more winning money that takes 1 minute to get, no more winning blocks.

Reworked SkyDrops
With the beta testers' assistance, we have been able to appropriately rework the contents of the SkyDrops and improve them drastically in order to suit a new economy and be worthwhile.

Removal of Adventures
We felt that the overall feel that adventures gave were more so encouraging a Survival season, rather than properly understanding the functionality of Skyblock. Therefore, we have decided to completely scrap this feature this season, and rework the PrimePass to be both more challenging, yet more rewarding, as well as exploring Skyblock features within it.

Reworked PrimePass
To cater to the removal of Adventures, as previously mentioned, the contents and requirements of completion has been increased, as well as added two separate pathways to allow Free2Play players to experience the same challenges, yet wreak a decreased amount of rewards. To check this out further, use /pass!

SkyMaster
A refreshing feature that eagers the PvPers. Once every 3 hours, the SkyMaster will appear within PvP, selling his goods and services to those that choose to bargain within him, but beware, if you upset him, he will take your money and not give his item. Within an assortment of choices, I suggest traveling to him to gain what he gives.

MobWhacker
Yes, the returning face of the MobWhacker. A big ask from the player base and it has returned. Purchasable off the BuyCraft store, this MobWhacker will assist you in grinding mobs to the best of your ability. Upgradable using EXP, the higher level that your MobWhacker is, the more mobs that will be killed, as well as a higher amount of EXP and Mob Drops gained.

Vote Party
Acting alongside the Vote Party on Prison, we have also introduced this feature to Skyblock as well. Vote for the server and in exchange for 75 votes for the entire gamemode, you will receive a mysterious booster that will assist you in working your way to become the best island.

Scrolls
Scrolls are available in 3 types:

StatTrak Scroll
This brand new consumable item will allow you to keep track of the amount of kills you've managed to get on both players and mobs using the weapon it is applied to. Once the scroll is applied, it will be on that item forever. No extraction. To apply the StatTrak scroll, simply drag and drop it onto your item of choice. By shift-right-clicking, you will open up a menu where all stats are kept. A combined amount of both player and mobs kills will be apparent next to the item's name.

BlockTrak Scroll
The BlockTrak scroll will allow you to keep track of the amount of blocks you have mined, or chopped down using the tool it is applied to. Once it has been applied, it will be on that item forever. No extraction. To apply the BlockTrak scroll, simply drag and drop it onto your item of choice. By shift-right-clicking a block, you will open up a menu where all stats are kept. A combined amount of blocks broken will be apparent next to the item's name.

Rename Scroll
Want to change an item's boring name to something more exciting? The rename scroll can help. By drag and dropping this consumable item on to the tool, the weapon or armor piece of choice will consume it. From here, you will be prompted in chat to type in your desired name. There will also be a list of color codes in chat that will assist you in finding the perfect combination of colors for your item's new name. You will have up to 5 minute to name your item, if you exceed this time limit, the Rename Scroll will be placed back in your inventory.

All of the scrolls listed above will be available on the server store, as well as in the Rotating Mob Shops (/mobshop)

Old Piston Farming Mechanics has returned
Don't want your island to be full of redstone contraptions, just to make an automatic farm? With the return of an old mechanic, when a Melon or Pumpkin grows in front of a piston, it will automatically break! No redstone needed!
