    Hey everyone,

    I have some great news for many of you; Factions has had a major content update (and reset). So, lets get right into some of that new content!

    Gen Buckets
    Placing a lavabucket above air will result in the lava turning into cobblestone and slowly each block below the previous will turn into cobblestone as well resulting in a wall.

    Sponges can be used to control the wall, as the cobble stone generation will stop 4 blocks above any sponge. Otherwise the cobblestone will stop when it hits the ground or gets to the void.

    This one is a bit tricky to explain, so best you get in game and experiment with this for yourselves! But its definitely a great way to build up cobblestone walls fast :).

    Slowness Snowballs
    These snowballs give player's slowness when you hit them with em, pretty awesome right?
    To craft them, you must be have a purchased rank (but don't worry, ALL players can use them!) and simply follow this recipe:

    Enchant Crystals
    Yup, Factions now has custom enchantments! To apply these custom enchantments, you must obtain an Enchant Crystal which after you have enough levels you can right click and apply it to an item. Enchant Crystals have three rarities: Common, Rare, and Legendary, but tiers are negligible as all that truly matters is the enchantment held within the crystal :).

    To obtain these crystals, you must either loot them from an airdrop (more on that later ;) ) or purchase them from our shop at buy.primemc.org.

    Here's an example of what a crystal looks like (there's one for every custom enchant though, this is just 1 enchant):
    [​IMG]

    When you right click one with enough levels, this menu pops up:
    [​IMG]

    To apply the enchantment to an item (it must be the correct type of item! But don't worry, it will let you know what types of items are applicable. After you apply the enchantment your item should look like this and be ready for use:

    Custom Enchantment List


      • Common:
        • Gamma - Permanent night vision while wearing
        • Auto Smelt - Automatically smelts ores when mined
        • Nourish - No hunger loss while wearing
        • Poison - Chance to apply poison 2 to a hit opponent for 10 seconds
      • Rare:
        • Awareness - Resistance to blindness
        • Bloodthirst - Regen 2 for 15 seconds upon kills
        • Extinguish - Permanent fire resistance while wearing
        • Ice Aspect - Chance to apply slowness 2 to a hit opponent for 10 seconds
        • Jump - Permanent jump boost while wearing
        • Wither - Chance to give opponent wither 2 for 10 seconds on hit
      • Legendary:
        • Agility - Permanent speed 1 while wearing
        • Blindness - Cahnce to give opponent blindness 2 for 10 seconds on hit
        • Decimate - Chance to deal double damage to opponents
        • Hidden - Get Invisibility 2 when under 20% health

    Air Drops
    Air drops are chests that a dragon flies by and drops from the sky! They have some pretty awesome items, such as the brand new enchant crystals :O. Here's a picture of one in action:
    [​IMG]

    Tiers
    There are currently three tiers of air drops (Common, Rare, Legendary). Each tier has its own color, and as you progress in the tiers the items obtained become more plentiful and of better quality.

    How to Obtain
    How do you obtain these you might ask? Well, currently there are a few ways.
    #1) The first way is that there will be randomly occurring drops around the spawn warzone about every 5-15 minutes, give or take. These drops are random and free, but they are announced in chat so be ready to fight for it! Also, these drops will usually be common, as the rare and legendary are not too frequent for these types of drops. If one were to occur, you'd see a message like this in chat:
    [​IMG]
    #2) The second way is from crate keys (you can even get a legendary air drop signal from vote keys!), where you can get air drop signals (explained next).
    #3) Finally, you can purchase Air Drop Signals from our shop. An air drop signal is essentially an item that lets you call in an air drop of that specific tier to your location (must be in the warzone). However, this is NOT broadcasted in chat meaning you have a much greater chance to acquire the contents given you place it in an isolated spot of the warzone ;). When you place the signal however, it will take a bit of time for the air drop to come to your location. So you should still be well armed to fight off any enemies! Here's what a signal looks like:
    [​IMG]

    Blocks / Raiding
    Most blocks have a durability (this includes obsidian). Most explosives (tnt, creeper eggs, etc) will damage the durability of these blocks (this also includes obsidian). However, you must be quick about this as each hour all damaged blocks will regain 1 durability!

    To check the durability of blocks, simply click the block with a potato.

    Miscellaneous
    • You can easily craft TNT with /tnt
    • View your PVP stats with /killstats
    • View leaderboards at /warp lead
    • Player skulls have a 50% chance of dropping when one dies from PVP
    • MUCH MORE - Time to do some exploring for yourselves; this is a brand new server!

    Note: All ranks were transferred over accordingly, and as of the time typing this the only way to access factions ranks & black market is via /buy on the factions servers. This will be fixed shortly. Also, rank names were changed to better fit Prime.


    That just about sums it up, but like I said, there's a lot more on the server for you to discover yourselves! Besides, its always fun to explore a new server, isn't it?

    Happy raiding!

    Gen buckets need to change. Make it so if you shift and place it will turn to cobble, some walls you need to have lava
