    Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've had a good week. We have some new stuff we'd like to introduce, as well as some changes to existing mechanics that we think you'll enjoy.
    [​IMG]
    Once again, we're increasing the player level cap. We're bumping it straight up to 50 from 35, but this time, there's more to this change than just a higher number.

    XP Scaling Changes
    We've adjusted the scaling for the required XP from levels 25+. This new scaling algorithm will make it much easier to level up faster at earlier levels and puts most of the grind in levels 40+.

    if you have enough XP in your current level to put you over to the next level, you'll automatically level up the next time you play.

    [​IMG]
    Purchasable Challenge XP
    Challenge experience can now be purchased from the Money Wars Token Shop in all Skybounds servers at a rate of 150 Challenge XP for 500 MoneyWars Tokens.

    [​IMG]

    NEW: Bonus XP
    Bonus XP is a brand new way to gain XP besides completing challenges. Whenever you complete special actions around the server, you'll receive challenge XP related to the task you just completed. You can earn Bonus XP through the following tasks:​
    • Enchanting using high-level books
    • Disenchanting items
    • Soulbinding items
    • Bottling experience
    • Alchemizing shards
    • Killing bountied players
    You can earn up to 500 Bonus XP per day (20 hours), and more actions that award it will be added in the future.

    NOTE: The addition of BONUS XP will replace the previously used BOUNTY XP REWARDS. You will still earn XP from killing bountied players, it will now just share a pool with other bonus rewards.

    [​IMG]

    Since we started Skybounds, all players could only have 3 Daily Challenges. Now, we're changing that. Introducing Challenge Slots!

    [​IMG]

    With this change, it is now possible to unlock up to 6 total daily challenge slots. Unlocking additional slots does not increase your reroll cost, or change the frequency at which you can reroll specific challenges, so keep grinding without worry!

    How to get the 3 new slots:
    • Slot #4 - Available to players Level 20 and above, purchasable for 15,000,000 Stars.
    • Slot #5 - Available to players Level 30 and above, purchasable for 20,000,000 Stars.
    • Slot #6 - Available to players Level 40 and above, purchasable for 25,000,000 Stars.
    To purchase a new slot, just click on it from your /challenges menu when it's offered to you.

    When a new challenge slot is unlocked, you will be issued a challenge to fill it immediately. Following that, it will act just as old challenge slots do.

    You must reach Level 20 to be offered the ability to purchase an extra slot.

    [​IMG]

    Your Diamond items can now be leveled up to Level 25, to improve upon their abilities even more! With this change, some abilities will become SUPERCHARGED and get huge buffs.

    What happens when I get an item to level 25?

    [​IMG]

    Swords

    • Rage gets even better. It will provide Speed 5 instead of Speed 3.
    • Insight is improved. It will provide x5 experience drops while active
    Insight has also received a buff for non-level 25 items as well, increasing experience drops from 3x to 4x.

    [​IMG]
    Shovels
    • Treasure gets better. The chance to find rare resources when digging is increased.
    [​IMG]
    Pickaxes

    • Reserve lasts twice as long, allowing you to harvest more resources from the ores on your island.
    • Crush gains area-of-effect, not only demolishing blocks you hit, but blocks surrounding what you hit as well
    The Crush ability now also works on Quartz Ore, as well.

    [​IMG]
    Hoes

    • Harvest inflicts no durability damage to your hoe
    • Reaper's area of effect range is doubled from 10m to 20m.
    [​IMG]
    Axes

    • Bolt no longer targets just one enemy. On trigger, ALL enemies in range of the strike will be struck with lightning, dealing critical damage.

    [​IMG]
    A new enchantment once again joins our collection. Annihilator can be found on new items scattered within crate and warzone loot, or from our new immortal kit Pharaoh (Savage Games | Welcome)

    [​IMG]

    When your opponent is on 5 Hearts or less, you will deal extra damage based on the level of the enchantment. It's in your best interest to keep your health high!

    [​IMG]
    Players who are bountied can now earn their own reward! Every couple minutes spent in the warzone will award you 1% of your bounty total. This means that if you have a 100,000 Star bounty on your head, you'll receive 1,000 Stars every couple minutes, just for adventuring into the warzone!

    [​IMG]

    In order to receive the reward, the following criteria need to be met:
    • You cannot have an Orb of Immunity active
    • You cannot have an invisibility potion active
    • You must be active in the warzone (No afk-ing)
    • You must be in the warzone for the full-time period (Teleporting out or running back into PVP-free areas will reset the award timer.)
    We hope this encourages more players to adventure in the warzone, especially those with bounties.

    [​IMG]
    • Parkour Options - Type /pk options to customize different aspects of your parkour courses. Current options include: changing name, of course, setting a time limit, setting whether or not players must hit all checkpoints, setting whether or not players are respawned when they touch water/lava/fire/cactus
    • More Kill Tracker Options - The Kill Tracker can now be applied to Hoes and Pickaxes
    • Alchemy Shards Buffed - The rewards from alchemy shards have improved
    • New Campaign Challenges - 2 New campaign challenges to introduce players to new mechanics they may not have tried yet
    • New Level Up Tip - Upon hitting Level 20, players will now be informed of the ability to buy Daily Challenge Slots.
    • /renameself Improvements - VIPs can now change their skin, as well as the name over their head for disguise purposes
    • Daily Login Button - We've added an emerald block to the corner of your /ch menu that allows you to access your Skybounds Rewards directly! Consider this a helpful reminder from us. :)
    • FIX: MoneyWars Invisibility - For real this time. pls.
    • BUFF: MoneyWars Trapper Kit - Now has 24 Trap blocks instead of 3!
    • Bugfixes and Optimizations - As always!

    Until next week...
