    Just going to preface this with, this is a suggestion post that NORMALLY would go in the suggestions/discussion section of the forums but since someone decided, for reasons beyond my own comprehension, to remove that, I have no choice but to put it in off-topic.
    This will be a list of things I think should change, including my own and other peoples' ideas.


    1) Re-adding Content From Pre-Reset Skybounds
    I'm talking things like higher enchantment tiers, all of the old Ckits (or at least some), and creeper spawners (and spawners as mob drops). It feels like every aspect of Skybounds has been downgraded without adding anything much back, and the server feels hollow as a result. Much of the varied warzone loot (armor, tools, etc) has been removed, without replacements, so the warzone is emptier and there's even LESS of a reason to go in it now (granted there are the grinders but those are only so fun to sit and click for hours.) I just feel like things weren't really THAT OP before, and it's not worth keeping those things removed at the expense of "balancing".

    Here is a short list of things that I, and some others, would like to see readded to SB in some way. Including but not limited to:
    Ckits (Miner, etc)
    Cupid (Useful swords for slayer)
    Reindeer (for reindeer poop)
    Forge Essence
    Transmog 3 Potions (perhaps nerfed slightly but re-added)
    Rupture Potions (to use in conjunction with Transmog potions)
    All Warzone specific tools, weapons and armor (Frost armor, The Beast, Very Angry Miner, etc)
    Creeper spawners
    Re-adding mob spawners as a mob drop
    Eternal Shards
    Combo Enchantment (very useful for slayer, perhaps re-add in a limited capacity)
    Orb of Dimension
    King of the Hill!

    2)
    New Content for Skybounds
    I know a lot of people would like to see a return to weekly, or even bi-weekly, content updates for Skybounds. Even small things (adding things to the store does not count unless it adds functionality) would improve the server. Skybounds has not only been stripped of many of the features it once had, in the name of balancing, but due to a lack of real updates it is now stagnating. I know kits come out occasionally but for the most part, those seem like minimal additions. I know developers are probably expensive, but I think it's worth it. Kingdoms, as I understand, gets updates and it has barely 1/5 the players that Skybounds does, if even that.

    3) Epilogue
    It goes without saying that what I'm suggesting would take effort, and may not even entirely be up to Lauren, but I implore her to look into this and make as much of it happen as possible. Recently, she made a poll/suggestions form for small changes, and I know that much of what I'm suggesting here was suggested there but I would just like to reinforce that these are changes that the Skybounds community (or at least some of it) want.

    tl;dr
    I think Skybounds has been kind of shunted to the side, or at least slowed down. I want Savage Games to return and make some improvements/additions, both new and old.

    If you think I forgot anything important, please comment what and rest assured I will see it. Unfortunately, forum posts can no longer be edited, so I cannot add anything to this once I click "Create Thread" but I will hopefully be in the comments replying to things.

    Lauren, please make it so we can edit posts again, I need to update my scroll guide. lol
    EDIT: Most peculiar, I can edit THIS post but not my Clue Scroll Guide. Please change it so I can edit that, I guess. It contains out of date information that could confuse people, and also is missing a fair bit of information.

    I agree. Skybounds has been pretty stale as of late since nothing new has really happened for months and its player count has been declining for awhile now.

    On a side note, I personally don't think it helps when the OWNER of the server almost hardly ever looks at the forums let alone actually play the game and advertise it so they can feel the disappointment from the community.

    I would hire another developer to work on skybounds since the current developer team seems to have their hands full with kingdoms and hungry games at the moment. I would also like to see some of the stuff you mention above back since its starting to get kind of stale.

    I agree with everything you said, and if there are still players that have played before the realease, they would remember orbs of dimension. I kinda want them back...

    I largely agree with you skybounds needs to bring stuff back and roll some updates at as its slowly decreasing in numbers as week after week to month after month its the same, Bringing back spawner drops from afk is a good idea as it was the main reason why people went afk to get these. With bringing back some of the enchants I agree slightly as some were op and hard to fight against. to bring back cupid and reindeer would be nice but you got to remember they are Christmas set shards and should be kept that way only.

    i mean the owners have made it pretty clear that they ONLY want money and nothing else since all they do is add monthly crates and thats the only thing they have been adding the past year and nothing else besides removing stuff from the game and we also have 4 pages of prefixes and all accessible by buying the monthly crates
