    Happy Friday!

    Just wanted to get that out of the way right off the bat! To celebrate the start of this fantastic weekend, we have another amazing Content Update for you! This week, we've focused on improving the experience in The Warzone, to make it both more dangerous AND more rewarding!

    Let's get right into it!

    Meet the Tele-Wizard

    [​IMG]


    The Tele-Wizard is here to help you navigate the Warzone! For a small fee of 500 Stars, he'll teleport you randomly into the dangerous lands.

    [​IMG]

    If you manage to make it to a PVP-free area on your warzone expedition, you can use the /warzone command to warp randomly once more. There is no telling where he's going to take you, and it might not be the destination you had in mind...

    Speaking of the warzone...

    Now Discoverable: Sky Chests
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    If you weren't motivated enough to enter the Warzone before, Sky Chests may just be what you need!

    Sky Chests restock twice every day, and can contain unique, rare, and never-before-seen loot! If you're lucky enough to discover a Storm Generator, you can gain the ability to restock chests on command, as well as discover some of the best loot the chests have to offer for yourself...

    Now Unlockable: IMMORTAL Shards
    Immortal Shards
    are a new type of item that grants access to rare and unique kits. These new type of shards can be discovered throughout the Warzone, or purchased from our shop: Savage Games | Welcome

    [​IMG]

    All Immortal Shards come with a chance for you to unlock the listed kit forever!

    A New Way to Obtain Ores: Ore Spawners

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Ore Spawners will populate nearby stone with the listed resource for a short time. Once they deplete themselves, they'll turn into standard glass with no more particles.

    These new spawners can be located in Sky Chests throughout our warzone.

    Other Noteable Changes:
    • MORE PLAYER SLOTS: We've increased our player cap up to 250 players (+50 for donors)!
    • PLAYER TRADING: Use /trade to trade with other players safely! No more scamming!
    • MORE WARZONE ISLANDS: 10 more islands have been added to our warzone, including islands that provide wood, gravel, more ores, and future monster spawners. ;)
    • CUSTOM GUILLOTINE ENCHANTMENT: Gives any players you kill a chance to drop their head. This enchantment can be found on items in Sky Chests as well as weapons in the Executioner Immortal Kit.
    • NEW SHOP ITEMS: "Storm Generator" and "Executioner Immortal Kit" are now for sale. A storm generator will trigger an instant restock of all Sky Chests and award you with 5 loot drops (rare or better), while the Executioner Immortal Kit will give you shards like the ones listed above, giving you the chance to unlock the kit forever without ever entering the warzone. Shop: Savage Games | Welcome.
    • CHAT ITEM LINKING: Say [item] in your chat message to show a tooltip of whatever you're currently holding. (Legend rank and up only.)
    • CHALLENGE RE-ROLL ANIMATION: When re-rolling a challenge, you will now be shown a spinner animation. (Why not?)
    • "RESERVE" ABILITY NERF: The Reserve ability will now destroy ores you've mined at the conclusion of the ability, preventing infinite mining of the same ores.
    • "CHARGE" ABILITY NOW "SLAY": No gameplay changes, just a re-name.
    • "SLAM" DEBUFF: Slam now has a short recovery period before you can swap to another ability.
    • WARZONE MOBS: Mob spawning is now enabled in the warzone, in preparation for a future update
    • LUCKY FISHERMAN NO MORE: You'll no longer find enchantment books when fishing
    • NEW CHALLENGES: Over 30 new challenges, split across the Campaign and Daily challenges.
    • "MULCH" BECOMES "REAPER": The Hoe trades in it's highest ability for a more combat oriented one. This ability will blind and wither players within 10 blocks of you. Right click the ground to prime it, then the next player you attack will trigger it.
    • "TREASURE" ABILITY CHANGE: The cooldown for Treasure has been lowered to 5 minutes (from 10 minutes), and the drop chance for items has been lowered.
    • ANCIENT RUNE RE-WORK: All Ancient Runes have received a loot buff, making what you get out of all of them better. The rarity of these runes were also increased. Old runes will have a chance at dropping the new runes when placed. New runes now have a chance to drop from sand, dirt, grass, and gravel.
    • ENDERPEARL NERFS: EnderPearls now have a 10 second cooldown, and deal 1 heart of damage (regardless of armor) when you land. When a pearl is thrown, you'll also now be informed about the cooldown in chat to help new players.
    • ABILITY NERF: 2 abilities can no longer be activated at once. (Stopping the Slam + Rage combo)
    • INVITATION GUI: Island invitations will now appear in your /island go menu in case you miss them in chat. These invites are cleared on restarts, so accept them quickly!
    • HOE NERF: Hoes now take durability damage when using their special abilities and punching crops.
    • QUARTZ ORE XP: Quartz Ore now awards 3xp for pickaxes when mined
    • LOW DURABILITY WARNING: When equipping a tool or weapon with less than 10% durability, you'll receive an alert in the form of a title. (This can be disabled in /toggles)
    • BUGFIXES AND OPTIMIZATIONS: Many things changed and tweaked in the backend, to improve performance for you guys!
    As always let us know what you think. :) Your support these past couple weeks has been so awesome, and we can't wait for the future of Skybounds!
