    Hey Arcadians!


    The SkyblockX reset is today, so as promised we will be revealing to you all a couple more of our super cool updates that are taking effect after the reset! There has been so much positive feedback on the reset so far, what is the update you're most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments!​

    Crates

    Let's start of with everyone's favourite - crates! We will be introducing 2 brand new crates at the start of the season: Lightning and Fantasia, but don't worry, the Vote Crate is staying, and it's better than ever before, with buffed rewards and even a chance to win rare items such as: expensive spawners or even Admin heads! All of these crates will be available to purchase right after the reset, so make sure you get that head start ;)

    Vote Crate

    We've heard your voices and have decided to buff the vote crate! Money, Experience & mcMMO prizes have all been increased. We've also added different rewards from other servers that you all seem to enjoy, take a look at the prizes you could win:

    [​IMG]
    Lightning Crate

    This is our first tier of crate that can either be purchased from our webstore here, or obtained from either the Emperor bonus kits! The Lightning crate contains some extremely cool custom items, including the entire cosmic set! Here's a list of items you could win from the Lightning Crate:

    [​IMG]
    Fantasia Crate

    This is our new top tier crate that can only be obtained from the webstore here. The Fantasia crate contains some super cool items, such as: Reincarnation Level 10 Armor, Awesome Custom Items, Custom Spawners, and even Admin skulls! Here's a list of items you could win from the Fantasia Crate:

    Webstore Items

    Block Wand

    The first thing we are going to cover in this section is the Block Wand! This is a magical wand, which when used, will turn all items inside a chest into blocks! This is easily used by just simply holding the Block Wand, then left clicking the chest you want to condense. Check out the GIF below to see an example!​

    [​IMG]

    This Block Wand is also highly customisable, so you can use it however you like. You can choose which items you want it to automatically condense when left clicking a chest by simply shift right-clicking.​

    Important: When purchased, this wand is permanently linked to its original owner and cannot be used by anyone else!​

    Smelt Wand

    Next up, the Smelt Wand! The Smelt Wand works in a similar way to the Block Wand, and using them alongside each other can be really efficient! The Smelt Wand, when left clicked on a chest, will smelt all ores stored inside. Check out the GIF below to see an example!​

    [​IMG]

    Like the Block Wand, the Smelt Wand is also highly customisable and will let you choose which ores you want to smelt when left clicking chests.

    Important: When purchased, this wand is permanently linked to its original owner and cannot be used by anyone else!​

    Fly Orb


    Finally, Fly Orbs! This new webstore addition will let you fly in your island for a certain period of time depending on which level of fly orb you purchase - currently, there are four different levels of purchasable Fly Orb's:

    Level 1 Fly Orb ($3.99) - 12 Hour Fly Time
    Level 2 Fly Orb ($6.99) - 24 Hour Fly Time
    Level 3 Fly Orb ($14.99) - 3 Day Fly Time
    Level 4 Fly Orb ($24.99) - 7 Day Fly Time

    Warzone Updates & Changes

    Warzone Activities

    Introducing three brand new warzone activities: Capture The Flag, Find the Cow and Supply Crates! These new minigames is sure to make you leave your island, and fight for the awesome rewards you can obtain from them.

    Capture the Flag

    Capture the Flag events occur every twelve hours. To capture the flag, run towards the coordinates displayed in chat and look for an abandoned castle. Inside this castle, you'll find a glowing piece of red wool, to pick it up simply break it and start carrying it to the goal. Careful, once you break it, everybody will know that you have it and where you currently are, in addition, there will also be sparkly green particles all around you that will cast you out from all the normal players in warzone! Once you've successfully reached the goal region, stay within the diamond blocks for twenty seconds to claim your prize!

    [​IMG]
    Find the Cow

    This small addition is a fun activity that could either take you thirty seconds or even ten minutes! Every 10 - 15 minutes "Daisy" the cow will have daised off into warzone, your job is to find her. Once you have found her, simply right-click her to receive one Glowing Leather. Glowing Leather can be used to buy some epic items in the Cow Shop. To view the Cow Shop, simply type "/cowshop"

    [​IMG]
    Supply Crates

    Supply Crate events occur every once a day, at a random time. The process of claiming is the same as a regular Sky Drop: look for the supply crate in warzone, right-click it when found and solve the mini-puzzle to begin claiming of the Supply Crate. You then need to protect your Supply Crate for sixty seconds and make sure no one else steals it from you.

    [​IMG]
    Scuba Diving Armor

    Scuba Diving Armor is a new armor set than can only be found in the warzone on SkyblockX, currently. Each armor piece has Protection 5, and Unbreaking 6, with additional enchants on the helmet and boots. To claim the armor, you must find a sign that sits in warzone, near a bed of water. The sign can be used every 24 hours by only 1 player, globally. For all of those item collecting junkies, this is perfect for you!

    The armor itself shouldn't be treated as the most OP armor set in the world or anything. But, it should be treated as a treasure, due to it's rarity. Take a look at the process of claiming Scuba Diving Armor:

    Small Changes and Additions

    Here you can find a list of some smaller changes and additions we have made for SkyblockX Season 4!​

    Bounties

    For Season 4 of SkyblockX, we have decided to add in bounties! Some of you may be familiar with this already from our other servers. We have added a bounty system to allow players to place a bounty on another player. This bounty will consist of money and the amount of money is decided by the player placing the bounty. If you have a bounty on you and you are killed, the killer will receive the cash! For more information, run "/bounty help" in-game

    [​IMG]

    Repair and Blacksmith NPC

    Along with our small changes, we have added two extra helpful NPCs! Below is some information on who they are and what they do. You can also right-click these in-game and they’ll tell you some need to know information.​

    Repair NPC

    This NPC will provide you with a repair service. You can visit them to repair all your items for a fee. You thought we’d let you do that for free? Think again!​

    Blacksmith NPC

    This NPC will provide you with an anvil service, but for our Custom Enchantments! When visiting this NPC, you’ll be able to combine two of the same Custom Enchantments to gain one of the same Enchantment but at a higher level. If you’re confused, think of it as an anvil, but only usable for the Custom Enchantments! But of course, for a fee, didn't think it would be that easy, did you? ;)

    Lockette

    A feature we think you all will love! We have added a custom Lockette feature, allowing players to control who on their island can access what. Players will be able to place a sign with the text [Locked] on it on certain items. This will stop other island members from using them! This feature can be used on the following items:

    Monster Spawners
    Chests
    Trapped Chests
    Furnace
    Dragon Egg
    Hopper
    Beacon​

    Spawner and Mineral Blocks Changes

    In SkyblockX Season 4, we have made some changes to how some Monster Spawners and Mineral Blocks are obtained and used. We have noted these changes down in a bullet point list, as it makes it easier for you to understand and read.

    - Normal ores are no longer obtainable from cobblestone generators, you'll receive corrupt ores from cobblestone generators which can only be sold at the "Pickle Rick" NPC at Spawn. Warzone is the best way to make money now!
    - Iron Golem Spawners will only be obtainable from wilderness activities and crates
    - Blaze Spawners have been increased in price
    - Mineral Blocks are no longer purchasable from /shop​
    [​IMG]
    Statistics

    Introducing a brand new way to view all of your statistics. These statistics are entirely warzone based, and will contribute towards the top statistics and could you win an ArcCash prizes. To view you current stats, simply type "/stats". Your stats will reset every month to make room for new players, and to reset top statistic prizes as well!

    [​IMG]

    Top Statistics

    Just like KitPvP, we've added in /top - this command will display the top statistics for various different aspects of SkyblockX, such as Kills, Islands, Bounties and more! You'll need to grind to the top to show off your true skills to your friends and enemies, as well as win the end of season prize!

    ArcCash
    Prizes


    After each month, the player in the #1 position of each category on "/top" will win $15 ArcCash (Kills, KOTH Wins, Sky Drops opened, Ores Mined in the Wilderness, Flags Captured, Cows Found and Supply Crates)! The categories in /top are the same as /stats! At the end of each month, these statistics will reset and start afresh to give all the new players a chance to climb to the top. In addition, we'll also be rewarding ISLAND TOP with $50 ARCCASH!! Can you climb all the way to the top?

    This means you've got to be in warzone for as long as possible, grinding those kills while collecting resources for both you and your island. Do you think you've got what it takes?
    [​IMG]
    We hope you're as hyped for SkyblockX season 4 as we are! It's been a super fun reset to work on with some cool updates and important gameplay changes to make the gaming experience here at Arcadian so much more fun!
