We felt bad about not having any Skybounds content last week, so we wanted to make up for it with a BANG and release not only new features... but a brand new world as well! NEW WORLD: THE ROBOT ISLANDS We're happy to introduce our first new world since the Ice islands... The Robot Islands! Robots brings 325 more player slots to the Savage Games network, as well as a brand new warzone. This warzone is complete with plenty of ores to find, loot chests, outposts, and the usual many islands to explore! Robots can be accessed by clicking the newly created icon next to Ice in your hot bar from our hub. This is the first new world since the addition of the Orb of Dimensions. Because of this, I feel it's important to highlight that the Orb of Dimensions does not work right away on new worlds. New Skybounds worlds have a 10 day grace period from creation before items can be transferred in from other worlds. This gives new players in the world a chance to get settled before gear from other realms starts coming in. The Orb of Dimensions will start working on The Robot Islands on February 7th. NEW MECHANIC: THE BLACKSMITH The Blacksmith is a brand new NPC and mechanic being introduced to all Skybounds worlds. Previously, we gave you guys a method to get rid of useless enchantment books... now, we're doing it for armor and gear! The Blacksmith will Salvage weapons, tools, and armor into their raw resources for a small star fee. Up to 16 items can be salvaged at once, making the process quick and painless. When salvaging items, you have a chance to receive the following: Wood Items have a chance at returning sticks Leather Items have a chance at returning leather Stone Items have a chance at returning cobblestone Iron Items have a chance at returning iron ingots Gold Items have a chance at returning gold ingots Chainmail Items have a chance at returning iron bars Diamond Items have a chance at returning diamonds However, it goes beyond just resources: Items that have XP and levels have a chance to return a Bottle of Item XP good for a small bit of the XP on the item Items that have been enchanted have a small chance to return enchantments on the item in the form of an enchantment book. The Blacksmith can be found in all markets or accessed with the /blacksmith command.

NEW ENCHANTMENT: SELF DESTRUCT Self Destruct joins the arsenal of our custom enchants as a new Armor enchantment. Self Destruct will prevent some items from dropping when you die. The amount of items to destroy will increase with every level of the enchantment, up to Level 5. When Self Destruct triggers, an explosion effect with fireworks will detonate to make it obvious to the player who killed you what happened. Make sure not to wear this gear on your own island, though - if you die through the fault of your own, the effect will still trigger! NEW IMMORTAL KIT: ROBOT Robot joins the ranks as our brand new immortal kit! Robot will be the first kit to feature the new Self Destruct enchantment. You can grab it from our shop for any world that you play on: Savage Games | Welcome To celebrate the new immortal kit as well, we're doing a 20% OFF SALE for ALL immortal kits!
