    We have a jam-packed update for you guys today! No time for witty and hilarious introductions, let's get right into it!
    [​IMG]
    We're happy to announce the addition of another brand new world for the second week in a row! This new set of islands will bring 300 more player slots, a new warzone, and 4 new outposts, but this time, with an added twist... it'll be played by JeromeASF!

    Jerome will be creating content actively on the Nice Islands just like Mitch does for TFI. We think this increase in content creation will bring in a brand new player base and help introduce players to Skybounds for the first time!

    The Nice Islands can be accessed by right-clicking the icon in your hot bar next to Robots.

    Like robots, the Orb of Dimensions will not be enabled on Nice Islands until 10 days after release (February 13th)! This is to allow players to settle in before items from other servers start being brought in.

    [​IMG]

    The Sorcerer allows you to buy and sell things you previously haven't been able to... Enchanting XP! To begin, speak to the Sorcerer in any of the markets or type the /sorcery command.

    [​IMG]

    Your head at the top of the interface will show your current XP and Level for enchanting.

    [​IMG]

    Clicking the bottle at the bottom of the screen will convert your experience to a bottle which can be sold and traded in exchange for stars.

    Make sure to watch out for the return rate. By default, the Sorcerer will only convert 30% of your total XP to bottle form.

    [​IMG]

    Like repairing, you can improve your return rate with the help of Arcane. The more Arcane Dust you provide to the Sorcerer, the higher the return rate will be.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    When converted, you will be given an XP bottle, similar to item XP. When you right click this bottle you will be given the XP listed on the label.

    [​IMG]

    We're happy to announce Bounty Hunting with this update as well! Bounty Hunting will add a new way to get money from the war zone as well as additional player experience.

    You can bounty any online player by using /bounty <Player> <Amount>.
    [​IMG]
    Similar to the auction house, the bounty system will take a fee out of every transaction.

    You can see all bountied players online with the /bounty command.

    [​IMG]

    In this case, it's just JP. You can see his location on the server, his current bounty, and the chance for his head to drop on death.

    [​IMG]

    Bounty Walls around the server will also show random active bounties for players who are online. These walls update every few minutes to random players online. Think of these as a reminder for players to target in the war zone!

    [​IMG]

    When you kill a bountied player, you'll receive all the money on their head, as well as a player XP bonus. This XP bonus varies based on the level of the player you killed. In JP's case, he's level 9,999 - so my XP reward was pretty awesome!

    [​IMG]

    You can earn up to 500 Player XP every day (not including premium rank boosters!) using the Bounty System. Mouse over the XP bottle in the interface for info on the XP you've earned and when the limit resets for you.

    On top of player bounties, the server will also pick a random player every so often and bounty them automatically! Always watch the bounty interface, as there will almost always be a job to take on. ;)

    We're also bringing a new Immortal Kit and enchantment into the rotation with this update... say hello to the Thief!

    [​IMG]

    The Thief will be the first to showcase our brand new weapon enchantment... also fittingly named Thief! When you strike a player with a weapon enchanted with this, you'll have a chance to steal Stars from your target!

    You can check out the new immortal kit's gear in our shop: Savage Games | Welcome

    [​IMG]

    LOTS OF NEW LOOT!
    We've added LOTS of new items to our loot tables in the Warzone! There are TONS of new items to discover and lots of new things to find!

    LOTTERY ORE!
    A new type of ore will also start appearing around our war zones... and it could be anything!

    [​IMG]

    Lottery Ore cycles between ores constantly, and drops something random when broken. It's usually resources... but could something else be inside too?

    MORE & MOVED CHESTS!
    More chests have been added to the war zone in all worlds... as well as some well known chests have been moved! Get hunting!

    [​IMG]
    • Newer players get easier daily challenges. Previously the Daily Challenge assignment was truly random. We've made a few changes to make the game friendlier towards new players. Players below Level 7, will only ever receive Easy and Normal challenges. Players below Level 10 will only receive Easy, Normal, and Hard. Everybody else will receive all difficulty levels, just like before.
    • A level requirement on Daily Login bonus. You must be Level 5 on a server to claim your daily login rewards. Previously, earned XP would imbalance the "tutorial" stage of the game. We've added this restriction to ensure that the tutorial progresses at the rate we've intended.
    • Shotbow Buff. We've increased the velocity of arrows fired by the Shotbow, making it much more effective in more scenarios.
    • Backend loading changes. We've adjusted player loading code to result in "null data" when performing misc. tasks much less.
    • Enchantment XP Bottles. Added to the game as a way for players to earn XP to be used toward enchantments in the form of an item.
    • Enchantment limiting. There are now hard caps on some enchantment levels, as opposed to just having a low success rate. You can no longer disenchant above-the-limit enchantments, the blacksmith will now never return them to you, and the Alchemist will not alchemize enchantments to be above max level.
    • Blacksmith now loves gold. You can now salvage gold items at the blacksmith.
    • Blacksmith now knows a lot more about enchanting You should start receiving enchantment books more often, but they may not be the exact level of the enchantment that was on your item.
    • Help menu cleanup. The /help menu is now paginated because we have lots of commands and we care about your chat, so we've decided not to spam it too much.
    • Bow fire limits. You can't fire bows in PVP-free areas at all anymore. No more arrow spam!
    • Bugfixes and optimizations. Part of a balanced update.

    We haven't forgotten about you Money Wars, your time to shine is next week... ;)
