Hey Arcadians! As you can probably tell by the title, it’s time for another reset! As you all know the prison reset has been in process for some time now, we highly apologize for the inconvenience and the long duration and false promises given by members for the prison reset date. Prison has been long expected as a server to be reset, so we’re happy to finally announce that it is coming and it's coming on the 13th of April! With this new season of Prison, we have a lot to showcase! Be sure to read through the entire announcement to see what you can be expecting for the next season and something extra that you may want to see. » Click here to watch the official trailer for ArcadianMC's Prison Season 5 New Spawn & Mines As with each reset, we bring you a whole new spawn area to fully explore along with some brand new mines! Spoiler: Sneak peak Arccash Along with the Prison reset, the ArcadianMC Staff Team are more than happy to announce that ArcCash will be re-enabled very soon! Without further ado, what will be in store with the new system of ArcCash? » Click here to find out more details about Arccash Mana Behold, Mana! If you need an easier and more interesting way to mine, look no further than this new system that we’ve adopted. Mana gives you an entire array of awesome abilities that can make your venture into the mines more interesting and unique, ranging from drilling holes with explosions to transforming the blocks around you into something more valuable - the possibilities don’t end. You can use these handy abilities with /ability. If you want to use these new abilities, you are going to need some mana to start. How do you get mana? Well, every 200 blocks you mine you get 1 mana, and every 5 minutes 1 mana. The mana you get from being online will only account for half of your max balance. You can check how much mana you have by typing /mana. One of the first abilities that you will become familiar with is called Shotgun. Shotgun allows you to efficiently drill holes into the mine through the best means possible - explosions! Shotgun costs 100 mana to use and is active for 30 seconds after being activated, so use that time wisely! Although you can access this in the /ability menu, another easy way to use this ability is through typing /mana shotgun in-game to automatically activate it if you have enough mana. The ability Shotgun is only the first of many new abilities that we have added into this next season of Prison, we are excited to see how you guys use these new abilities combined with Mana! Lockdown Beware, it's time for the Lockdown! During this time, the warden will be roaming the pvp mine looking for any risky players who dare to challenge him. Only the strongest of the prisoners will be able to take on this mighty foe and walk away with the bounty that he holds. While the Lockdown does give you the potential to win some good rewards, it also comes at great risk! The warden is not an easily-defeated foe and surely will be worthy of a challenge! During the event itself, pvp will be disabled and only the 5 strongest of the prisoners will be able to walk away from the event with some loot. You will be notified about the event 10 minutes in advance through a server-wide broadcast (see above picture) and will not be able to join once it's started! Will you be one of the people who will be able to say you defeated the warden? Plan wisely, we hope to see you all using this amazing new feature! Gang Update Everyone loves new features, and this is no exception! This new season of Prison will make gangs much more interesting and give you some sweet new features that you never knew you needed until now! There's plenty of new additions, so many in fact that it would take a very long time to read through every single one. However, here are some notable things: Gang Tokens A new form of currency that has been added especially for gangs alone. Not to be confused with gang points (it's mentioned down the thread a bit, we didn't forget!), gang tokens allow the Gang Master to upgrade their gang in the gang upgrades menu (accessible in /gang) and make it better and more customizable than ever before! Gang Points While it sounds pretty similar, there are some differences between this and the new gang tokens. Gang points are earned from tasks which can be seen with the handy dandy command /tasks. These new points are used to buy some exclusive items in the gang shop (accessible in /gang) that will toughen up your gang and make it really something to be feared. Gangs will also only be able to have 10 Players in one, to limit 1 gang dominating every gang top. Speaking of Gang Tops, we have added new Gang Tops to Prison! Gem Shop: Be amazed by our new Gem Shop, with more items to buy and a cool design! We added different sections to make the gem shop more structured and these are Pickaxes, Crate Keys, Titles, Noodles | Candy, Tokens | Boosters, Amulets | Wands | Gapples, and Miscellaneous. We added a new Item to buy in the Gem Shop as mentioned before. We added Experience Multipliers so that you don't specifically need a Global Rank to get them. Do you have too many E-Tokens and have no idea what to do with them? Well, we have got you covered! You can now exchange your excess of E-Tokens for gems, but at a high rate. PvP: We have added more PvP Mine "Events" like CTF and Supply Crates. Capture the Flags will happen every 8 hours, for good rewards and Supply Crates will only happen every week, but give amazing rewards, that are worthwhile getting. After getting feedback about the rewards of the already existing PvP Mine "Events", we decided to rebalance them and they are now worth your effort and time! We have also nerfed Golden Apples, making them slightly rarer and lowering the effects of them. Mob Arena We are very proud to announce a revamped mob arena coming to Prisons! Now, don't be fooled by the Skyblock version of mob arena - this one will be very different! Prison MA will have different bosses, arena events, and better rewards! MA will have multiple difficulties, with each having more waves and more difficult bosses. To unlock the different difficulties, you will need to unlock prestiges or use mob arena fragments, but in both cases, you will have to pay some amount of money, except for the first difficulty. Prison MA will also have different kits, fewer OP ones, to combat the mobs. The kits Dwarf, Elf, Wizard, and King will be available once you achieve a certain prestige, but there are also normal kits, and these are Knight, Archer, Paladin, and Berserk. You will get MA Points each time you kill a mob or boss. These mob coins will you give the ability to improve your gear, so being more effective at combatting the mobs. But you will have to choose wisely what you buy! Achievements: We have made a few improvements to Achievements on Prisons! First, they are now more difficult to complete than the previous ones, since we have added 1 or 2 more difficulties to each achievement. The names of each achievement were changed to be more fun and we have added new achievements! These are Koth, Gambler, and Bounty. You will also now get rewards for each achievement you complete, so be sure to complete them all! Gifts: Introducing, Gifting! If you feel generous and have money to spend, this is something for you! Do /gifting and a GUI will appear. Click one of the boxes and a lucky player will get it! Prestiges: We have lots of changes involving prestiges for this upcoming reset. First of all, we will be adding a brand new sort of Prestiges, called Star Prestiges! You will only be able to do /star, once you have reached PX-Z and when you do /star, your Prestige and Mining Rank will be reset and will go back to P0-A. A star will then be added to your in-game name and it would look something like this: The color of the star and number will always change after each star and they will look like this: We have also made small changes to the regular prestige rewards, making them a bit better, but not too overpowered. Once you reach P10-Z and star, you will get access to an open vanilla world, called the Free World. There you will be able to earn prestige points, which you will be able to use in the prestige shop. Those prestige points can be achieved through mining, fishing, and killing mobs. You can purchase items beneficial to acquiring more prestige points, as well as fun items like pogo sticks and flying boats, while the items you can purchase for the actual mining world will help you get more $$$. The items are for you to discover, once you reach P10! Plot Mine Commands After many players asking for plotmine commands, we have finally added them. We have 4 of them and those are: /plotmine delete will delete your plotmine and put it in your claim vault. /plotmine reset will reset the plotmine if you want to reset it before the automatic reset! /plotmine deny will prevent trusted players in your plot to mine in your plotmine. /plotmine allow will allow trusted players in your plot to mine in your plotmine. Minor Changes: We have added a few minor changes to Prisons, like: Rankup All You will now be able to rank up as many ranks as you can afford in 1 click! Either do /rankupall or click the diamond block in the Rankup GUI. Bidding: People can now have real bidding wars! Just do /bid sell (Price) while holding the item you want people to bid on! The Arcadian Staff Team is more than happy to finally be bringing you this long-awaited reset on the 13th of April at 3PM EST - we hope you will enjoy all of the new features and will continue to provide valuable feedback!
