To celebrate the end of the season, we will be hosting an end-of-season event.

๐Ÿงญ New! Player Warps

What is a better way of showing off your island than with a public warp? Sure, we have had 1 public island warp per island, but how great would it be to be able to place warps all across your island, that can be visited by every player on the server?
๐Ÿšช Set your own warp
Do you own the best public grinder? Make it public with a player warp! Or do you have a fun parkour event, place a player warp and allow players to easily access your warp.
Warps will be displayed within the /playerwarps menu.
Within this warp menu you will be able to set a small description explaining what your warp is about as well!
๐Ÿ‘ Rate other warps
These player warps can be either given a Like or a Dislike. This way you can easily filter through the best and worst warps across our Classic SkyBlock server.
Placing a warp is simple, once you obtain a Player Warp Token you will be able to set a warp using /setplayerwarp <name>. After placing the warp the token will be consumed and the warp will be set.
๐Ÿ“š Simple and accessible
You can remove the warp at any time, by using /delplayerwarp <warp>. However, you will not be refunded a token upon removing a warp, so you have to choose wisely where to place your public player warps.


๐Ÿ›’ New! Player Shops
With these new player warps, there is only one essential thing missing to make your Island open to the public, a good player shop system! That is why for this season we will be introducing a brand new player shop system that you can use with ease.
๐Ÿ›๏ธ Create your shop
Start off by placing down a chest with a sign saying [shop]. Once the sign has been placed down the chest will turn into a player shop. Once the chest has been turned into a shop it is time to get started. Start out by clicking the newly created shop sign. Now your shop menu will open up. Within this menu, you can do 4 different things, those things are:

Set your shop item. -With this you can select an item from your inventory that the shop should sell, this can be any item in the game, as long as your shop has enough stock for it you will be able to sell it!
View shop logs -Here you can view everyone that has used your shop in a small simple overview, this way you can check how your little market did while you were offline.
Select your price - Looking to buy, sell, or both? Configure your shop with a fair price and you will be able to buy items from players, sell them items to you, or even both. This will also work while you are offline.
Remove your shop - Want to move your shop somewhere else? No worries. With just a click you can remove your playershop from your island.
๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ Advertise your shops
A new unique way to make yourself known with your player shops is by advertising them. You will need Advertisement Gems in order to be able to advertise your shop, and each shop can be advertised individually as well. Once the timer runs out your shop is no longer advertised, however players will always be able to use your shop, even when it is not being advertised.
๐Ÿฌ Browse all advertised shops
With everyone being able to create a shop we decided to make a big overview, the /playershops menu will show all the current playershops, organized by item and category. However in order to have your shop shown here you will need to have it advertised.

๐Ÿ“ซ New! Delivery System

Ever wanted to send your friend a package of items, or just surprise them with a gift?
We will be introducing a Delivery System where you can simply send packages to your friends in a safe way, even if they are offline!

๐Ÿ“ฆ Send a package with ease
To make a delivery simply type /maildelivery <player name>, and an inventory will pop up where you can drop your items in to, the delivery man will make sure all these items come in 1 small package to the person you are sending them to. Close the inventory when you are done sending the items or click the Cancel button to cancel.
To pick up deliveries, type /deliveries, or visit the Delivery Man at spawn, he will take care of all your incoming packages until you have claimed them.

๐Ÿท๏ธ New! Tags

Tags are a great way to stand out in chat, and now you will be able to show off in chat with style with these brand-new tags.

๐Ÿ’ฌ Collect every tag.
You can earn tags by purchasing them in the /goldshop, or by getting a few of them available in-game.
If you are planning to become even more fancy make sure to check out the new /tags.
Collect every tag to stand out in chat even more.

๐ŸŒŸ Different tiers per tag.
In order to have valuable collectibles you need to know which tag has what rarity, so we divided the tags into 6 different tiers.
Tags come in 6 different tiers: Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary, Seasonal & Special.

The seasonal tags are only obtainable during the current season, after this season you will no longer be able to collect them.
The special tags are given to players for helping us out by reporting bugs, posting suggestions, and overall making Survival a more enjoyable gamemode.
โฐ New! Play Time Rewards

Get rewards by simply playing. How great does that sound? Too good to be true? We agree! However, it's happening this season. You can claim different milestones simply by reaching the required playtime. Upon your first login this season your playtime will start, the more you play, the more rewards you will be able to claim this season.
Start out by typing /playtimerewards and you will find a menu with different tiers of rewards that you can claim, each tier will have a higher requirement of playtime, the further you progress, the better the rewards will be, and all of that for free, how amazing is that.
๐Ÿ‘ป New! Spawners
With a new version comes new mobs that we can not leave behind!
That is why we will be adding a few new spawners for mobs that we think are a good fit to have a spawner.
It is a small change, but we feel like having more spawners that you can collect will make it a bit more fun to expand your grinders with.
The following mobs will now have their own spawner on the new Classic SkyBlock:
๐ŸŒŠ Drowned
๐Ÿœ๏ธ Husk
๐Ÿฆ‘ Glow Squid
๐Ÿ Goat
โ›„ Polar Bear
๐Ÿ’ซ New! Spawner Boosts
We will be adding different spawner boosts for every spawner as well. These boosts can be unlocked by paying heads of the mob that spawns from the spawner.

โซ Spawner Boost Level
Each spawner has a boost level, this can be unlocked with the heads of the mob from that spawner as well. It is all about grinding out those spawners to further enhance your Classic SkyBlock income!

Your spawner has a total of 10 levels giving the following boosts:
Level I
x1.5 Experience from mobs of the spawner
Level II
x1.5 Drops from mobs of the spawner
Level III
x1.5 Mob Heads from mobs of the spawner
Level IV
x2.0 Experience from mobs of the spawner
Level V
x2.0 Mob Heads from mobs of the spawner
Level VI
x2.0 Mob Heads from mobs of the spawner
Level VII
x2.5 Experience from mobs of the spawner
Level VIII
x2.5 Mob Heads from mobs of the spawner
Level XI
x2.5 Mob Heads from mobs of the spawner
Level X
x3.0 Experience from mobs of the spawner
x3.0 Drops from mobs of the spawner
x3.0 Mob Heads from mobs of the spawner

๐Ÿง  New! Mob Mastery

A new rewarding system for grinding mobs.
For every 5,000 Mob Kills you receive a Mob Point that you can use for Mob Mastery.

You can select a specific type of upgrade and upgrade them with Mob Points. With each upgrade, the loot you get from Mobs becomes better.
The following 3 mob masteries have been added for this release.

3.5% Chance to drop loot x3

Upgrade 2 (5 Mob Points):
7.5% Chance to drop loot x3

๐Ÿ“Š Updated! Leaderboards
Statistics are essential in a competitive scene, so that is why we want players to stand out, or brag about their achievements. It's okay to be proud, and you should be able to show your accomplishments in style.
Next to that is that we want players to feel and see their own progression, where are they standing, and how much further they have to go to reach a higher spot on the leaderboards, and that is why we will be doing a complete leaderboard revamp.
On every leaderboard, you will now be able to view your exact position. This goes for the leaderboards in spawn and newly introduced leaderboards.
Next to that, the Skills Leaderboard will also receive this improvement.
These 8 leaderboards will now be displayed in-game:

๐Ÿ’ฐ Top 10 Balance
๐Ÿ’€ Top 10 Deaths
๐Ÿ”ซ Top 10 of all Skill Levels
๐Ÿ”‘ Top 10 Crate Keys opened
๐ŸŒฟ Top 10 Custom Crops Harvested
๐ŸŽš๏ธ Top 10 Player Levels
๐Ÿ”ฎ Top 10 Collected Experience
โš”๏ธ Top 10 Kills
๐Ÿ๏ธ Updated! Island Upgrades
It's been a while since we added some island upgrades, so for this season we will be adding 2 new ones, those 2 new island upgrades are:

Spawners Spawn Rate - Spawner levels will now increase the Spawn rate by 25% per level!
Crops Growth Rate - Crops levels will now increase the Growth rate by 10% per level!
๐Ÿ  Updated! Auction House

It is important to know what happened to your auctions. This is why we added a small change to the auction house. We will be introducing the /ah sold command.
Within this menu, you can view all your sold auctions. This will make things much easier when your auctions got sold while being offline.
All of the sold auctions will be visible within this /ah sold menu.

On top of that, we added two new currencies you can use in the Auction House, these currencies are Mob Coins and Experience. With these two new currencies, you will have a little more choice on what you want and need.
So now you will be able to list auctions with the following currencies:
Money, Mob Coins, and Experience.
๐Ÿงฎ Updated! Player Levels

Tired of the same old boring task? Well, look no further! We have completely revamped the player levels task and added some new unique tasks for everyone to enjoy and take on. We won't spoil you what they are, so better prepare to uncover them yourselves!
๐Ÿคฉ Time to go premium!
Of course, when there are new player levels, they must also come with brand-new level rewards! YES! You've heard us correctly, brand-new level rewards along with premium rewards with the new Premium Pass Voucher that you can purchase from our gold shop using /goldshop or our web store at store.pika-network.net
In these changes, we aim to challenge the community of survival with the hardest task a true challenger can do, but at the same time, you must also have fun! This will involve a lot of blood, sweat, and tears from grinding to the top. We wish you the best of luck with the new 100 levels!

๐ŸŽญ Removed! Resource Pack

Last season when went to the latest version of the game we decided to use all of it and added a custom resourcepack to further enhance your classic experience.
We have always loved utilizing the latest version with a resourcepack as it gives you so many possibilities on what you can do on the gamemode. From custom cosmetics to items, and so on. However, even though we loved creating a pack and having so many cool things in-game such as the hats, emojis, custom inventories and all of the other things that came with our resourcepack we decided it was best to cancel the resourcepack idea for Classic SkyBlock.

๐Ÿ–ฑ๏ธ Why the removal?
We feel like a resourcepack is great, but we aren't using it to the fullest potential. In order to make full use of the resourcepack we would have to add many new things in-game, making Classic SkyBlock no longer Classic SkyBlock, but a whole new mode. On top of that a resourcepack is stopping a lot of players from trying out a mode, and we want people to be able to enjoy Classic SkyBlock, even without the resourcepack.
That is why we decided to fully remove the resourcepack and everything around it. So this week is your chance to say your final goodbye to the resourcepack.


โš™๏ธ Fixed! Bugs
We did our best to polish and fix as many existing bugs inside the Classic SkyBlock server. We have looked through all the bug reports and managed to fix them. If you come across any bugs with the new release, make sure to report them at our forums under the bug reports section.
Here are a few of the bugs we squished out:
  • Fixed supply drops not ending properly sometimes.
  • Fixed the tablist names being in the wrong order.
  • Fixed some spawners randomly losing levels.
  • Fixed zookeeper
  • Fixed leaderboards
  • Fixed chunks sometimes not saving.
  • Fixed having negative island experience.
  • Fixed nether portals on some islands not working.
  • Fixed not being able to connect to Classic SkyBlock sometimes.
  • Fixed the get started NPC not working once you own an island.
  • and many more.
๐Ÿ“‘ Misc. Updates and changes.
After receiving some suggestions about modifying a couple of things, we have decided to make the following modifications in order to make everyone's Factions experience much better. We have modified a few features which were present on the previous map, and here is the list including those modifications, along with a justification for the majority:
  • Updated all plugins.​
  • Updated help commands.​
  • Added a new tier of supply drops.​
  • Added player level skip tokens
  • Added crate re-roll tokens
  • Added all the new mobs to the game.
  • Added the gold shop to Classic SkyBlock
  • All kits will now be given as a voucher
  • All gkits will now be given as a container item.
  • Improved crate rewards.
  • Improvec supply drop rewards.
  • Updated tablist.

Please note: Any suggestions for changes feel free to leave them in the comments.

โ“Question and Answers

Why does Classic SkyBlock reset?

Classic SkyBlock is already up for some time. A reset has to happen to change and improve with new features, to make the game more exciting for you all! This then allows you players to have a fresh start and new players can begin to play without any significant disadvantage.
This means all items, money, and the map will be reset. Nothing will be kept leftover from the previous map. I know this must be a disappointing revelation for a lot of you, but think about the exciting new changes, the new alliances you can forge, the new map, the new features and updates the different kinds of gameplay, and style is provided with this update will surely make it a worth-while and exciting reset!
Below you can find what you will lose and one for what you will keep
What will I lose?
