    It's that time of the week again, but this time... Here Be Monsters.
    [​IMG]

    New World Discovered: The Monster Islands
    This new Warzone is filled with freaky freaks and creepy creatures. It's the first warzone to have permanent night time, the perfect conditions to spawn monsters from your worst nightmares. With this new world comes 300 more player slots, a brand new set of islands to explore, and 4 new outposts to find.

    To help offset the darkness, you'll have Night Vision when inside PVP-free areas. (Spawn, outposts, and the market.) Be careful of what lurks in the shadows.

    (Your islands will keep their normal daylight cycle. Only the warzone is night-locked.)

    [​IMG]

    New Custom Enchantment: Bloodsuck
    Our new custom enchantment comes with the new Vampire Immortal Kit, as well as being discoverable from warzone Sky Chests and Ancient Runes. Bloodsuck has a higher chance at causing your target to bleed, but with an additional perk: Each time BLEED damages your target, you'll be healed for what they were hurt.

    Bloodsuck offers a 3% chance per level to trigger. You also have the added perk of not burning in daylight, so that's cool too.

    The Vampire Immortal Kit is available from our shop for all worlds: Savage Games | Welcome

    [​IMG]
    Speaking of Immortal Kits... the Necromancer /ikit is leaving our store on Sunday. If you want it, make sure to pick it up before then! Who knows when it'll be back!

    Item Renaming and Customization: Name Fragments
    Name Fragments introduce the first way to customize your tools and gear to be truly yours. Collectable from Name Fragment Crates, you gain the ability to rename any armor piece, sword, pickaxe, axe, shovel or hoe. Up to 3 Name Fragments can be combined to form your new name. To begin the rename process, just right click an anvil with your Name Fragment.

    [​IMG]

    There are over 150 Name Fragments to find and collect! When you have the name as you like, compliment it with a fresh coat of name dye.

    [​IMG]

    Name Dye and Common Name Fragments are buyable from the market, while other name fragments are discoverable in the warzone.

    Other Noteable Changes
    • NEW LEVEL UP REWARDS: Rewards added for reaching levels 10, 13, 15, 18, and 20. If you are already above any of these levels, you'll receive the missed reward next time you visit your island.
    • AFK FIXES: Using the void to bypass the AFK kicker no longer works. (Sorry!)
    • MONSTER ISLAND TEMPLATES: The Basic and Premium islands on our Monsters world is more monsters-esque!
    • AUCTION FILTERING: Click the new hopper button to filter what items you see!
    • NEW CUSTOM RECIPES: Mix a Prismarine Block with a Coal Block to get Dark Prismarine, or a Prismarine Block and a Quartz Block to get Prismarine Bricks!
    • PLAYING CARDS: Island casinos are cool! Can be found in Warzone chests!
    • COMBAT TAG CHANGES: When in combat, your screen will now tint red. (Toggleable, /toggles). Your sidebar will also show who you're in combat with, as well as the time remaining on the tag.
    • VISUAL WORLD BORDER: The border of your island is now visible. If you prefer not to see it, you can turn it off in /toggles.
    • PVP SIDEBAR INDICATOR: You can now see whether or not you're in a PVP free area on your sidebar.
    • TELEPORTATION SAFETY CHECK: We now ensure it's safe to teleport you where you're going if you fall off your island. If your return point is obstructed or over the void, we'll send you to your island's spawn point instead.
    • ISLAND WARPS: Get around your island quick! If you're a premium member, you can set warps using /is setwarp and go to them using /is warp. Every island can have up to 5 warps.
    • NEW DISCOVERABLE ITEMS: Item XP Boosters and Item XP Bottles are now in the wild!
    • SKULLSMASH (AXES PASSIVE): Axes now have a new passive ability: Skullsmash. When fighting players, you have a chance to deal a critical blow. Skullsmash deals the same damage as bleed, but all at once (as opposed to over time.) We think this'll make Axes more common for combat.
    • NEW CHALLENGES: 2 new campaign challenges and 4 new daily challenges have been added.
    • IMMORTAL WHEEL OF FORTUNE: Don't feel as bad anymore if you fail to unlock an Immortal Kit forever! Failing it now has a chance to award some bonus starts as well as the items.
    • BUGFIXES AND OPTIMIZATIONS: I'm never going to stop putting this here.

    I just want to say that the dev team for this server is amazing for being able to pump out large updates like this on a weekly basis and fix old problems at the same time. If this is the beta i can only imagine what the full release will be like!:)

    I can't seem to find the Mob Drops Vendor, could it be that he was forgotten in the rush?
