    I joined the server about a month and a half ago, and to be honest, it's a lot to learn! It can get overwhelming with all the custom items and mechanisms to learn about, so here's the question. If you were to give tips to new players to begin to understand how the server works, what would you say? Post in the comments and maybe new players can use this thread!​

    There's a lot of guides and stuff on the forums for just about everything which even I still use being one of the oldest players on the server. The new /wiki command in game looks useful as well for newer players as well as the newer starter challenges which was added that explains ore seeds, schematics etc. And of course you can always ask fellow players or staff members for help too, there's usually always quite a few people who are happy to help newer players on the server.

    Yeah as what was said prior the /wiki command annd can be helpful for a range of things. Mainly I would suggest that if you are confused about something don’t be afraid to ask, there is definitely going to be a willing staff member or experienced player that can help u.

    I'd advise using the new skybounds wiki, as it has a ton of useful information. You can always also ask staff and other players in game questions if you need help with something :D

    I would suggest using the wiki that is now built into the server also I would suggest that you should never be afraid to simply ask any questions you have in the global chat. The forums are also a great place for suggestions and any larger questions you have so feel free to make tons of posts on the forums

    I see that everyone has already suggested the wiki so I don't need too xD but I would recommend going through the community help section. There is a lot of nice information there and pretty much any questions you have will be answered there as I'm sure others have asked them in the past.

    The newly implemented wiki is very well for some of the basic things on the server. A little trick I found helpful was make friends and don't be afraid to ask questions if you need answers!

    As everyone else said, /wiki is a great new command to get some knowledge about the sever! You could also search the forums for different types of guides and more information as well! Also, When I first joined skybounds, I personally watched Bajan’s videos. But some of those things in his videos might be outdated, etc. Anyways I would suggest using /wiki for some future knowledge on the sever, and also the forums as well for said guides!
    Hope you enjoy playing!

    Staff are always around to help out and answer questions if you ever have any! But besides that it's awesome getting to know the community and meeting new friends in the game. Like everyone above has said, /wiki is always very helpful and gives you guides to a lot of the server mechanics. Hope to see you around the server!

    But on a more serious note the campaign challenges and the starter quests will help you a ton make sure to finish them.
    A few aspects that makes skybounds, skybounds is the unique PvP and of course the island building
    Let the grind train set off
    Good luck ~choo choo~

    I would suggest that you make money and then start getting spawners from valguard and then start working on a grinder sword with unbreaking 3 or 4,sharp 3,looting 3, and confetti 10 you can make good player xp and money from the mining world.

    I’ve been playing since the start so I learnt things as they were added. What helped me tho was watching YouTube and watching bajsncanadians vids from the very beginning and seeing all the new stuff gradually be added abs explained.

    The first thing I built when I joined was a cactus farm. It got me decent money to buy OP armour and weapons which I then used (and lost) in the Warzone :P I also used profit shops to gain more money for me to buy spawners so I could grind my own mobs and sell their loot. I also found that watching Bajan's videos helped me since whenever something new was added, it got explained in detail how to use it and what it's for etc. However the BIGGEST tip I'd give to a new player is to just be nice, talk in chat and make some friends. Hope I helped!

    As a PvE player, I would recommend to play miningworld to start earning money. Use the money you just earned to make a good pick and start mining ore seeds! (In my opinion reserve all emerald and diamond ore seeds).
    If you are a PvP player you can also grind the grinder heads in the warzone for loot and maybe even a Ishard !
    Of course if any player has any questions, they can always as a staff any question they might have!
    Best of luck!!!

    Like many other people have already stated, I would begin by looking at the /wiki.
    As a player who doesn’t like pvp very much, I would say to initially start is finding ways to make money.. the best way to start I have found is to initially go into the mining world and make as much money as you can from that. From there, cacti farms are really good money makers, whether just starting out or long term.
    Once you have a decent amount of money, a good way to continue making money is to get a good pick and mine lots of ore seeds, especially emerald if you level up the pick and use reserve on a lot of it!
    Another tip I would add is to talk in chat and make some friends.. not only can y’all help each other but it makes it more fun to play in general!

    I personally suggest you asking in Global if you need help with something especially if it’s to do with a price of a certain item. However if you see a staff member online or in discord we are always happy to help and feel free to pm us.

    For a new player, I'd recommend trying to get all your challenges done if possible. Also if you are confused about anything just use the simple in-game command /wiki, and if that is no help ask your fellow peers/staff. You can also message people on the forums to get help with information about what you need to do. I'm on a lot and can help with a lot of things. Now let's get back to some more tips. First of all, I recommend you go into the warzone to mine ores, but before you do that don't take any of your best stuff with you. Simply take a pickaxe of choice, food, and maybe even a sword to protect from other people. Tip 2: Try to expand your island. Expanding your island is always good, more space to do what you need. I recommend making a farm, storage room, or be creative and make something cool. Tip 3: Be nice to everyone! If you are always nice and don't be mean to people they will treat you well. Those are my tips! Thanks for reading! ~Glossing

    Start by mining ores in warzone until u get 50-100k then buy a fishing rod and fish for valuables like immortal stone and legendary relics. When you get a million or more (which I’d u grind fishing only will take a day or 2) begin to buy spawners, buy blazes. Continue to fish or grind blazes until you get a very nice amount of money like 5-10mil. From then on buy spawners u can afk with and go from there

    It is certainly challenging to start out on Skybounds, but you can get on your feet by completing the starter challenge as well as mining and looting the outposts until you are able to go into the warzone successfully to loot as well. Also, make sure to grab records (except for the blue "wait" one), saddles, and prismarine because they can be sold to the hoarder at the market. The records are 5,000 stars each to sell back and that can help a new player get some much needed cash. Because they can't be stacked, a lot of people leave them in the chests after looting, so you can often still grab them on an island previously looted. Another way to get some good stuff is to do clue scrolls. There is a forum post that gives the answers to the clue scrolls to make things easier for you. They give decent loot. The most important thing for me has been making friends on the server. It is much easier to complete challenges and a much more enjoyable experience when you play with other people.
