Prison: Content Update - June '21

Hey everyone, this week's content update will be for the Prison realm. We've been listening to feedback from the community and have made a number of changes to some of the features that we recently updated, further refining them and making them the best they can be. We always appreciate the constructive feedback we receive from you, the players, and are happy to update features to make them more enjoyable to use.

Pet Taming

We've made a few changes to how Pet Taming works and how it effects other aspects of Pet life, in hopes of better balancing Pet progression on Prison.

Pets will require Taming before they can be merged, with Taming experience being gained by mining while your pet is active. Each block mined (not raw block) gives the active Pet 1 Taming EXP. Two fully tamed pets of the same level can then be merged to make a pet of the next level.

Each level will require more Taming EXP than the last, making it progressively harder to level up your pet to those more powerful levels. When your pet has reached Full Tame, you will receive a notification in chat.

  • Level 1 -> Level 2: 50k Taming XP
  • Level 2 -> Level 3: 100k Taming XP
  • Level 3 -> Level 4: 200k Taming XP
  • Level 4 -> Level 5: 400k Taming XP
  • Level 5 -> Level 6: 800k Taming XP
  • Level 6 -> Level 7: 1.6m Taming XP

As well as this, players will now automatically receive the lowest tier net to help get them started on their pet wrangling journey.
