Prison Reset Information

Hey everyone! This weekend, we're excited to announce that the Prison Realm will be resetting. As we wave goodbye to the current season, this upcoming reset will give you the chance to start fresh, and we can't wait to see what you can do when given a new slate to start on.

Realm Information

The new Prison map will be released this Saturday, October 17th @ 2:00 PM EST / 5:00 AM AEST / 7:00 PM BST.

With the new season, finally comes a new spawn. Take a look at what you can expect to see. We hope you like it!

The Quarry & Custom Ores

When you reach Prestige level 1, you will gain access to the brand new Quarry area and will be gifted a Lost Miner Pickaxe. The Quarry area will be home to 6 mines, with each mine having it's own unique custom ore inside.

When you mine the custom ore, there will be a chance for you to get the custom ore item in your inventory, which you'll then be able to use to create special Custom Ore pickaxes. The drop rate for the custom ore depends on the level of the Custom Ore pickaxe and what abilities you have unlocked - mining these ores levels up your pickaxe and allows you to upgrade the perks and improve it's abilities.

Here's what custom ores you can look forward to seeing and when you can mine them:

  1. Ruby (Prestige 1)
  2. Topaz (Prestige 5)
  3. Platinum (Prestige 10)
  4. Cobalt (Prestige 15)
  5. Opal (Prestige 20)
  6. Uranium (Prestige 25)

As shown in the list, after every 5 Prestige levels you will gain access to a new mine area in the Quarry. You will only be able to mine blocks successfully in the new ore mine if you have crafted a pickaxe using the custom ores of the previous mine tier. For example, you can only mine Platinum ore (tier 3) if you have a pickaxe made out of Topaz ore (tier 2).

Enchantment Powder

Currently, Dust is used to get enchantment books with higher percentages from the Dust Collector at spawn (to get Dust, you must trade in your old unwanted enchantment books). However, there's not much you can do about the enchantment book's percentages after you've purchased it.

Introducing Enchantment Powder! You can buy this powder from the Dust Collector in exchange for Dust. When this Enchantment Powder is applied to enchantment books, it will increase the success rate! To access the Dust Collector, find him at spawn or do /warp dust.

Additional Changes

  • Money pouches' % of money given has now been capped at Prestige 5. If you're Prestige 15 for example, you will get the same amount of money as if you were Prestige 5.
  • The Prestige prices have been lowered, so you will need to spend less money to prestige.
  • The Upgrader enchantment activation has been buffed, so it will happen more frequently now.
  • The shop has had some much needed quality of life updates, including adding more blocks & showing on the block's description where you can find that type of block in the mines.
  • Will just be boosting the max amount of slots a Backpack/Void Backpack can have.
  • Freeworld challenges and rewards are being slightly changed and buffed, which makes completing them more worth your time.
  • You need to mine a specific amount of blocks to prestige beyond prestige level 15.

We hope you're as excited as we are for the next season of Prison and we look forward to seeing you all on Saturday at 2pm EST. Feel free to let us know what you think about the upcoming reset on our Discord server:
