[Idea] Older things that should be brought back, to revive the server a little.

    As most of you probably already know, Skybounds, since a little after the transfer out of beta, has been dying at huge rates. The main reasons for this, that I have heard, or I have an opinion on, will be listed here somewhere. One thing, that has been said by a lot of people who make videos on the server, but have slowed down or quit on the making of videos of Skybounds, whether they have blackshore, VIP, or not, is the economy. And although there have been recent changes to spawners, and mobs dropping spawners, I feel as though, some items, that were more rare back during beta, have changed, and their rarity has been raised.

    List of these items:
    - Openables: Yes, they have been made very common, especially with Frost Mines being added in. The point of openables was to be able to get items, which could be good, or bad. Now I feel that they only give bad things, like spells.

    - Immortal Shards: These, back in beta, were only obtainable through, either buying them on the shop, reaching level 50 (I think, I never got that far xD), or from monthlies from only Legend and Savage rank.

    - Orb of dimensions: (Again) In beta, these were only obtainable from super skydrops, or buried treasures, and their prices were really high, which was better for everyone.

    - Storm Generators/Super Storm Generators: These were only obtainable through either Skydrops, or openables. Now there are so many ways to get them, hardly anyone who has gear goes out for them.


    - Soul Stones: Soul Stones were rare for a reason, now most people have so many, they throw them out.

    - Challenge xp: I'm just gonna be quick with this one, it's called a challenge for a reason, and challenge xp bottles should be removed.


    Next, I will make a list of ideas that SHOULD be added, and why. (Keep in mind, all of these are my opinion, and if you don't agree, don't start any arguments.)


    - Decent Armor: This could be added in skydrops and openable loot tables. Things like *from beta*, Magicians armor, and Sparkle armor.


    - I will update if I think of more.


    Last thing, these are something I think should be nerfed or full on REMOVED. (These are also my opinion, don't fight about it.)

    - Armor set bonuses: These just ruined the gameplay, and I am sure most people agree that when it comes to PvP, you shouldn't need a bonus, because it should all come down to skill. Set bonuses ruined the game because they give you an edge in fights, and makes things less fair.

    - "You will not regenerate above 10 hearts": This should be removed because, in all honesty, it breaks PvP. Reasons I believe this? Well, if you can't regenerate above 10 hearts, there is almost no reason in Tank. It's also a reason PvP is really bad on skybounds.

    - Ender-Bow Cooldown: It should either be removed, or lower the cooldown to 3 seconds. (forgot to add this above so I will add it here, make these, and gravity guns more rare) Back on track, the reason these were added is to get places faster. With the cooldown of 10 seconds, it's almost useless, because it uses 2 Ender Pearls, which is my reason to defend why it should be lowered or removed.

    SIDE NOTES

    -If you have any other suggestions for this, leave it in the comments, and I will add it, along with credit :P

    - If you disagree, tell me why in the comments, and I will try to see the other side of it.

    - If you see any mistakes within this, tell me in the comments so I can fix it.

    Much love to all Skybounds players who are still around <3 and I'm sure, if some of these are added, especially the ideas revolving around PvP, and anyone tell some old players who quit, it could help revive the server.

    Side note to the side notes, sorry about how long this is xD I have a lot of free time, and want to see some changes for the better.

    I agree with everything, but I also think they should add cutlasses and maybe sharp 6 or 7, they should keep the soulstone updates(chance to lose piece on death, and when armour breaks it uses a soulbind) over all, making the server a bit more like beta times I think it would attract old OG players

    Throwback to when unlocking an ikit was something special, now so many people have all ikits unlocked on different islands because they would unlock all ikits, kit token their immortal summoner to a different island, use an eternal shard on the original and re-unlock immortal summoner (the devs finally were smart and removed it ) #removeimmortalboosters

    I disagree with removing ch xp bottles. It's so slow getting at most 500 xp from dailies, and getting stuck on campaign challenges, that we need to keep em. Also, making immo shards be in skydrops like in beta isn't the best idea :P. Agree with everything else. Neutral post.

    i agree. i also think they should make pole to pole/coast to coast challenge easier, or remove it completely.

    also, no reset please. :P

    I love this! All I don't agree with is the challenge xp Bottle one. I feel they should be lowered not undone.

    I really love the sound of this, the only area I kind of disagree on is challenge xp bottles. I will say if we got rid of say the 15k one that wouldnt be bad and just kept the bottles to max 500 at a time that could be a slight work around for your plan!

    Yea every thing you said was nice and all, but you might not have to deal with it because you dont play fusion, but on fusion i get gladded about 3 time by 3 diffrent people, glad needs to be removed, and i think set bonuses are fun and really make skybounds pvp what it is but some set bonuses need a nerf/buff, like arthro 3 and boss sets are completley useless nowdays, people just use them for the prot5, and space needs a nerf becuase in a fight where 2 people are in space 1o1, sometimes it just comes down to who has more soul bounds on there armor due to the fact of you take very little damage, oh and 1 last thing, staff should be more open to thing sent to them via dms and such, i shouldnt have to make a player report on the forums just so a kid who calls hacks on me can get a mute/warning, i think they should just accept screen shots via dms and deal with it there, i dont see what the player report will really do accept consume time

    I agree with some but not really a lot of what you've suggested. I think minecraft in general is losing a lot of players. It's just going out of fashion for a while and will probably come back in fashion yet again down the track.

    This is a good idea for some things but when your new to the game the only way to start to earn real money is for the skydrops. So keep skydrops as common as they are because most people have loads or they have bought them from the store

    Thank you for the suggestions!
    I agree with quite a lot of the ideas stated above, however, when it comes to implementing them, it becomes quite difficult as there are many more things to consider. For instance, if we decide to remove/significantly reduce openables from ikits and remove set bonuses, we'll be hearing complaints from those players who purchased the shards for the items offered. We'll be doing whatever we can to try to balance the game, however, keep in mind that there are many more things to consider, from the server's point of view.

    Skydrops are really bad though to be honest... The most they offer is like 5 gold blocks, unless you get lucky and find 32 emerald blocks. Back in beta the game was about skill, not about getting an edge on every small feature, which is what made it more enjoyable for most people who share my point of view. Less frequent skydrops with better loot, is better than getting skydrops every five minutes to get trash like blocks and seeds.

    I could agree, but if they did get nerfed, I would prefer to see them for passive purposes, like Leprechaun and Turkey. Things like guardian, which reduces damage, just makes PvP less enjoyable because they don't actually have to have skill to be able to win. Also just wanted to add, you might be able to win in a 1o1 when both people have space, even if you have less soulbinds, if you get more hits, which is also where skill comes in ;P.
