    This is the biggest update Skybounds has ever received, and I'm going to need 3 cups of coffee to get through it.

    Here we goooooooo!!!!
    THE HUB
    All of our changes begin with the hub, as always. Let's overview what's new.

    Skybounds Rewards, now in the Hub
    [​IMG]

    The Hub will now serve as the new home for the Skybounds rewards. When you right click the NPC, you'll be shown all of your pending rewards. When you talk to her, you will be asked to select your favorite server. Your favorite server will be the server your rewards are sent to.

    You can change this at any time from the top icon.
    [​IMG]

    Favorite Servers
    On top of deciding where your items are sent, your Favorite Server will also be displayed prominently in the compass menu. You can change your favorite server quickly by right clicking any other server here, as well.

    [​IMG]

    Accessing the Beta Islands
    Access to The Beta Islands is as easy as clicking the server as you would in the past. Servers that have a beta version will prompt you which version to join, the release being on the left and the beta is on the right.

    It's important to note that many of these features discussed below will not be found on the beta islands.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Beta servers work like the original, 50 slots are reserved for premium players, while the rest are available to all.

    NEW ISLANDS
    The release of Steampunk and Prehistoric is being postponed until tomorrow, June 18th.

    The only way to do a release correctly is with the introduction of 2 new islands. We like to call these islands Steampunk and Prehistoric!

    These islands will feature everything you can expect from the Skybounds release, including new warzone islands, combat mechanics, and the overhauled loot table.





    LOOT AND RUNE CHANGES
    Only on the NEW Skybounds

    We've made some adjustments to loot and runes:
    • Confetti - Completely new rewards
    • Ancient Rune - Slightly more rare, tons of new loot
    • Legendary Relic - Slightly more rare, tons of new loot
    • Immortal Stone - Tons of new loot
    • Warzone Crate - Inherits from the brand new warzone loot
    • Pot o' Gold - New loot and now discovered from mining gold
    • Immortal Artifact - Can now be discovered from having either the most points or most kills in a Mining World game
    [​IMG]

    ISLAND IMPORTING
    Island importing is going to be temporarily disabled and will added in the future. For the time being, your islands will remain on the BETA ISLANDS. Once importing is implemented, you will be able to port your islands over to the new worlds from BETA. An announcement will be made of when this will be available to the public.


    Importing Islands is available from the /is new menu. If you had an island on the beta version of your current island, this option will be available to you.

    [​IMG]

    The import function is available to all players Savage and up, until the end of July. If you are not Savage and upgrade before then, you will be able to use the import function as well.

    Those that do not want to import their island can continue to access it on the Beta version of their chosen server.


    ENCHANT MAX SLOT BALANCING
    Only on the NEW Skybounds

    We've adjusted the maximum slot count for some items on Skybounds:
    • Bow: 8 > 6
    • Hoes: 8 > 6
    • Shovels: 8 > 6
    • Picks: 8 > 6
    Everything else is unchanged.

    • Singlecombat is the new default for warzone combat
    • Multicombat regions will cover islands with high ore and chest density
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Chests have some new mechanics for appearing, as well:

    • Super Storm Generators restock 85% of the chests
    • Chests not restocked by a generator are hidden until another restock

    No mention of monthly rewards only being redeemable on the favorite island. While I'm not terribly upset about it, I know many other players are, as that is the reason for many players to purchase the Savage rank. Will there be more perks to the savage ranks since something has been taken away?

    Outside of that, I am insanely excited and can't wait for my islands to release and to get started!

    Thank you developers and staff for working incredibly hard through all the troubles to make it happen asap!

    Okay. So, as I understand from the forum posts and such, if you were in the 10 level range from prestiging/ level 50 you are to be given a spinner on beta islands for a chance to instant prestige. But, let's say theoretically I was a prestige 0, level 42 before the reset. If I unlock the instant prestige from this spinner I understand I get the eternal shard. But since I was prestige 0, will I get the rewards from level 43-50(Including the level 50 shard)? Staff answer please...

    Island transfers not yet available ??
    So those of us who purchased savage rank as promoted, just to move our island are supposed to do what exactly ?

    When do we get the service we PAID for and what are we supposed to do until then ?

    Just not have an island or have every minute of work on a temporary island be a total waste of time and effort.

    Beyond unacceptable !

    Also..."This is the biggest update Skybounds has ever received, and I'm going to need 3 cups of coffee to get through it." Only three cups? I'd be on my 10th
