PvE! Attacking! Fighting! Woo!
This week's update is a bit smaller as we prepare for next week, but we felt like it'd be worth teasing at what's to come.

[​IMG]
The Mob Arena extends on The Arena that was introduced last week. This new mode will allow you to fight hordes of monsters that want nothing more than to tear you limb from limb... exciting huh?

[​IMG]

Mob Arenas can be shown by clicking the new button at the bottom of the Brawl Master interface, then by selecting the arena instance to join. To start with we have Coliseum, which plays in Survival Mode.

Survival Mode
  • Provided Gear: None - you bring what you want to use.
  • Entry Cost: Free - Limited to 3 games every 2 hours.
  • Objective: Survive as long as possible. The longer you last, the more Tokens you'll earn.
  • Waves: Endless
In Survival Mode, you'll fight hordes of monsters that get progressively more difficult the longer you last. You'll bring your own gear with you into the arena, so it's up to you to build a loadout that works best for what you ned it for. Every 5 waves, you'll face a mini-boss who has extra health, abilities, and gear.

How long can you last?

Adventure Mode [COMING SOON]
  • Provided Gear: Selectable kits
  • Entry Cost: Free - Limited to 1 game per hour.
  • Objective: Survive as long as possible. Use Score you earn throughout the match to upgrade your gear.
  • Waves: Endless
In Adventure Mode, you'll start with underpowered gear that gets progressively better as you spend Score to improve it. Like Survival Mode, you'll want to last as long as possible, however, the rewards and payouts for this mode are far greater....

"Gladiator" would have been a good name for the /ikit, missed opportunities, really.

The Arena
is a new, highly competitive way to battle your friends and foes in Skybounds. We're releasing an early version of it in Beta, but we have lots of plans and ideas for new features using it in the future.

What's The Arena?
In the arena, you have the ability to create matches that are solo (1v1) or team (up to 10v10) to participate in a sudden death fight. Arena matches are secluded from the normal warzone and use pre-defined, even, loadouts to ensure a balanced playing field for everyone. We think our hardcore PVP'ers are going to love it.

Entering the Arena
To enter the arena, use /arena in a PVP-free area or speak to the Brawl Master in spawn.

[​IMG]

If you speak to the Brawl Master alone, you will see available Solo Arenas to participate in. If you speak to him while in a Party (discussed in detail later), then you will be shown Team-based arenas.

[​IMG]

For the initial launch, we are testing with a low amount of arenas (3 solo and 2 teams) to better allow us to take feedback into consideration. If you like what you see, we will open more areas for more matches at once.

Creating a Match
To create a new match, select the arena you'd like to play either solo or in a party. You will be brought to the Arena setup screen.

[​IMG]

The middle icons allow you to select the Arena Kit. All players who participate in your match will receive the same tools and gear, regardless of whether or not they personally have the kit unlocked.

At the bottom, you can configure the Match Wager. The wager must be paid by all players who participate in the...

Brainsssssssss....

We're happy to introduce another Long Requested Feature! Player Shops will unlock a brand new way to make money in Skybounds, by having your own market on your own islands.

[​IMG]

Purchase Shopkeeper Eggs from The Banker in all Skybounds markets. Consider it an investment into future profit. Each Shopkeeper Egg can spawn a single shopkeeper on your island, and each shopkeeper can sell up to 28 items.

When you find a suitable spot to put your shopkeeper, just right click!

[​IMG]

Next, place down a chest anywhere on your island. This Chest will serve as a means of stocking your shop. (We recommend locking it.)

[​IMG]

When you assign a stock chest, you're ready to start selling items. Place as many items as you like in your stock chest, then go back to your shop and click the "Sell Item" button.

In this case, I chose to sell a Legendary Name Fragment for 1,000 Stars.

[​IMG]

As the shop owner, you can view both revenue and total sales of specific items. You can also view the stock level. Should you need to restock an item, just place it into your stock chest. The shop will update live.

So what can I do with player shops?
  • Sell items automatically. As long as players can access your island (via /is browse or by being invited), they can use your shop.
  • Get 100% of your revenue. We take no cuts of your sales for using Player Shops.
  • View statistics on items you sell and revenue you collect.
  • Run casinos, sell rare and unique loot, or visualize crazy cool items you've found by setting a crazy high buy price.
Should you have multiple shops on your island, you can also rename them by sneak +...
