    Update day is upon us once more! Today we bring to you new custom features pertaining to Bosses, and how YOU now have a say in the outcome of your boss battle rewards. Our first ever corruption kit will be introduced, along with Kit Redemption Tokens! This last month we brought new game play mechanics to the Warzone through various types of Emeralds, and now we gave you the 'Kill Challenge Emerald' - a new way to play! Quality Assurance servers, sales and more!

    Essence is here and is bringing a whole new level of Boss reward outcomes to the table! Not only do you need to compile a game plan for the Boss, but now your team mates too! Determining the outcome of your Boss Battle may have gotten a bit trickier. Do you wish to benefit your allies for all the hard work they've done, or take all the riches for yourself? You decide!

    Currently there are two different types of Essence obtainable - Charming Essence and Corrupting Essence, however, more Essence will be coming to SkyBounds in the near future. Essence can be purchased in the donation store or even added onto your Boss Egg purchases for around $5.

    Charming Essence: Increases the amount of players who will get rewarded from killing the boss.
    Corrupting Essence: Lowers the amount of users who will get rewarded, but guarantees better rewards to those that do.

    [​IMG]

    Essence can only be applied to fully charged Boss Eggs, thus any uncharged eggs will need to be taken to the alter and charged before Essence can take effect. Only one Essence can be applied per Boss Egg at this time. In order to apply the Essence, simply drag and drop the Essence onto your charged Boss Egg. The Essence will be applied to your boss egg immediately, however, there are three requirements that need to be met in order for the Boss Egg to be usable. Listed in the lore of the Boss Egg, you will be shown three tasks to complete. Once all three tasks are finished, your Boss Egg will be ready for spawning and the Essence will work as described.

    [​IMG]

    If at any time you do not wish to complete the three requirements in order to activate the Essence, or you wish to simply remove the Essence all together - you can visit your local Alchemist. Just like extracting items / gear on the server, you can strip the Boss Eggs of their Essence for a small fee. Upon Alchemizing your Boss Egg, you will be given a Boss Egg of the same type and your Essence back separately.

    A brand new Warzone game mechanic has been brought to the world of SkyBounds this week! We've previously introduced the Chaos and Duel Mode Emeralds, but today we bring you the Kill Challenge Emeralds. You may see the Kill Challenge mode enable on its own in the warzone, however, users will also be able to purchase these emeralds from the donation shop! Using the Kill Challenge Emeralds are easier then ever. Simply right click the emerald in your hot bar and the count down will begin. When activated, the warzone enters a no enchantment and no bounty mode for x amount of minutes. Top killers at the end of this period will then be rewarded. User purchased Kill Challenge Emeralds obtain much greater loot, then those naturally summoned by the server. Rewards for user purchased kits included Eternal Shards, Random Immortal Shards and Challenge XP. Kill Challenges provided by the server automatically will result in reward spinners for those who obtain top kills.​

    A new way to obtain your standard kits have since been introduced to the server! Kit Redemption Tokens are items in game that you will now receive upon purchasing a standard kit. When a purchase is made via the Donation Store, instead of a permission node being applied to your user, you will instead receive a token specific to the kit you purchased. In order to redeem your kit, you can simply right click the item in your hot bar and your kit will be applied to your user for permanent use as it normally would function. For those of you who have wanted a way to sell kits and gift kits, this is the perfect feature for you! With these Kit Redemption Tokens, you can now purchase kits under your name and choose to sell them to the general public, or give them away to your friends! Kit Redemption Tokens are not bound to the individual who purchased them, so be cautious of where you travel with these tokens and where you store them. If you have a token for a kit that you already have, a message will be displayed in chat explaining that the specific kit is already unlocked and the token will remain in your inventory.




    [​IMG]

    Corrupted Kits are here! Corrupted kits are the new and improved way to obtain exclusive and powerful loot on the server! Corrupted kits are the first kits introduced that track your usage. Tracking usage results in the contents of the kits upgrading every time you use the kit. What does that mean to you? BIGGER and BETTER rewards. These kits can be reviewed in your kit menu, or by using the command /ckit. All Corrupted Kits are available for use by anyone, however, remain locked. In order to use the Corrupted Kits, you will need to obtain keys that are specific to each individual Corrupted Kit in order to unlock them and discover the treasures inside. Please keep in mind that you may only obtain the kit once per key used. Using a key will not unlock any Corrupted Kits permanently.

    [​IMG]

    Corrupted Kit Keys can be obtained in game through Boss Loot. If you successfully complete a Boss fight and obtain a Boss Key, you can then use the key at the Boss chests for a chance at obtaining a Corrupted Kit Key. For those who may be too weak, or perhaps too afraid to face the challenges that a Boss may bring, you unfortunately can not purchase Corrupted Kit Keys from the donation store at this time. Future sales of this item may be applied to our store at a later date.

    [​IMG]

    Once a Corrupted Kit Key is obtained, you can simply right click the key in your hot bar to redeem the key. The key count will then be added to your Corrupted Kit menu in /ckit, which will display how many keys you have redeemed and how many times you may claim the kit. Please keep in mind that although you may have multiple keys redeemed on a Corrupted Kit, there is still a cooldown set in place to avoid spamming of kit contents.

    [​IMG]

    One major incentive to look forward to with the Corrupted Kit released today, is the unique and powerful armor set: Frost Walker. This set comes with a completely new and advanced visual effect that is sure to get people talking, or if out in the warzone, running.

    [​IMG]

    This armor set covers a radius around your player of snow that slows your enemies, along with reducing their attack speed. Upon sneaking in your full armor set, you instantly freeze players around you in a specific radius. Players effected by this ability are stuck in place momentarily and unable to move.

    No, it just makes it so that all enchants don't do anything while in the warzone. You don't lose them at all, it just makes fighting in the warzone that much simpler (or more skill based!).

    Apparently, it's an instant-TP from the warzone (which can be rather obnoxious if you were already in a fight...).

    Also, if one were to remove the enchantments from an ikit armor set (so that it is no longer enchanted at all), will the SET BONUS work while a kill challenge was in effect? I'm especially looking at the Guardian set in particular, since you could remove all of the enchants and end up with a 15% damage reduction if it does still apply during kill challenges... which is really potent...!
