๐ŸŽŠ Giveaways

We've got you covered if you would like to start the season on the right track! We are running a giveaway that includes ranks and store coupons! If you would like to enter the giveaways, go ahead and visit our official post!
Changelog
The most important features/modifications implemented towards this season's map and functions are the following.
๐Ÿ›๏ธ New! Spawn
A new season brings with it a fresh start and a chance to hone your skills. And what better way to do so than in our new spawn, inspired by the ancient samurai warriors of Japan!
Get ready to unsheathe your sword, channel your inner warrior, and vanquish your foes in our revamped spawn and warzone
๐ŸŽŽ A new spawn and PVP arena with a samurai theme.
โ“ Are you looking for some help? There are plenty of NPCs explaining all the features.
๐Ÿ”‘ A new seasonal crate has been added again.


๐Ÿ’™New! Heart Prestiges

Ever wanted to steal more hearts but you were stuck at the limit of the maximum amount of hearts? With the heart prestige system, you no longer have to worry about that!
This new system allows players to gain an extra maximum heart, as well as additional rewards, at the cost of restarting with a lower amount of hearts upon prestiging.
With Heart Prestiges, you'll have the opportunity to reach higher levels of progression and power in the game.
However, there is a limit to how many times you can prestige, so you'll need to choose your moments carefully. Each time you prestige, the rewards will become greater and the challenge of reaching the maximum hearts will become even more thrilling.
๐Ÿฅ‘ New! AFK Pit
We are excited to announce the opening of the AFK Pit.
This special area is designed for players who need to step away from the game for a bit but still want to earn rewards.
By standing in the AFK Pit, you can safely be AFK and increase your playtime. Every hour you spend in the AFK Pit will earn you an AFK Lootbox.
These special loot boxes contain 1 random item, so you never know what you might get!
Head on over to the AFK Pit now and start earning those rewards.


๐Ÿง™โ€โ™‚๏ธ New! Mystery Wizard
The almighty, powerful, and wise wizard has finally paid a visit around the realm of Lifesteal, and a grand visit from the Mystery Wizard means there's a great occurrence that a player can obtain.
๐Ÿ”ด Purchase items for rubies!
The two wisest and all-powerful items will be offered to the ones he deems worthy. By granting the worth of someone, he only seeks one thing who desires his riches, RUBIES! LOTS OF THEM! So make sure you are prepared every day, every night for what price he seeks.
๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ Every day, two new items appear.
Once a day has passed the Wizard will have two different items for sale, will you save up your gems or will you grab the first good item you see?

๐Ÿ“ฎ Updated! Mail Delivery

The mail delivery has been a great addition to the game, but we are looking at making it easier to use for everyone, so we will be making a small but required change. On top of that, we are making a necessary change to make the deliveries being used in the way they are supposed to be.
๐Ÿ” Sort by category
You can now show all deliveries, deliveries sent by the server, and deliveries sent by players, giving you a better overview.

โฐ Expiry timer
All deliveries within your mail delivery will now expire after 7 days, this means any old deliveries in there will now start counting and will be removed after 7 days. This makes the mail delivery system not a system to easily store unlimited items but makes it as we intended it to be.

๐ŸŒพ Updated! Custom Crops

With the introduction of custom crops, a lot of players started to plant them non-stop to make a lot of income from them. Unfortunately, the amount of people planting custom crops non-stop is breaking the economy really quickly, at the first week of Lifesteal being announced, we can saw multiple people who already reach 1 million money in just a short amount of time, making it too much of a boost to the players who only farm custom crops as their only source of income.

To tackle this issue we are making some required changes, and adding two new extra crops. We have rebalanced the needed levels for the existing crops as well.
๐Ÿ Pear - Level 10๐Ÿฅ Kiwi - Level 60
๐Ÿฅญ Fresh Mango - Level 20๐ŸŠ Orange - Level 70
๐ŸŽ Apple - Level 30๐Ÿ Pineapple - Level 80
๐Ÿ‘ Peach - Level 40๐Ÿ’ Elderberry - Level 90
๐Ÿˆ Pomegranate - Level 50๐Ÿน Dragonfruit - Level 100
โš™๏ธ Fixed! Bugs
We did our best to polish and fix as many existing bugs inside the Lifesteal server.
We have looked through all the bug reports and managed to fix them. If you encounter any bugs with the new release, report them at our forums under the bug reports section.
Here are a few of the bugs we squished out:
  • Fixed the team bank to deposit all.
  • Fixed the kiwi recipe not being unlocked.
  • Fixed custom crops not rendering properly.
  • Fixed being able to push players outside of the spawn arena.
  • Fixed chunk rendering speed.
  • Fixed some crate reward typos.
  • Fixed KOTH from not starting.
  • Fixed being able to plant and harvest any crop without the level needed.
  • Fixed fireworks doing damage to players.
  • Fixed custom crops become normal crops when off-hand.
๐Ÿ“‘ Misc. Updates & Changes
Multiple small changes have been made, some of these small changes are the following:
  • Updated Anticheat.
  • Updated the crate rewards.
  • Updated Zoo Keeper prices
  • Added all the pets to the zookeeper that were still missing.
  • Updated donator lootboxes a bit.
  • Updated the spawn area.
  • Added more needed help commands.
  • Added more needed NPCs about different features.
Please note: Any suggestions for changes feel free to leave them in the comments.

โ“Question and Answers
Why did Lifesteal reset?

Lifesteal is already up for some time. A reset has to happen to change and improve with lots of excellent new features, to make the game more exciting for you all! This then allows you, the players, to have a fresh start and new players can begin to play without any significant disadvantage.
This means all teams, 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 the style provided with this update will surely make it a worth-while and exciting reset!
Below you can find what you will lose and what you will keep
What will I keep?
  • Purchased Ranks & Rank Upgrades
  • Purchased Perks
  • Won out of crates commands/ranks

What will I lose?
  • Your team
  • All items in your inventory and ender chest
  • Any currencies such as money and exp
  • Chatcolor permissions.
  • Seasonal ranks and perks
  • Player levels & their colors + The premium pass

Can u at least update the /level system some of the level can't be done with a singular player. The level that I am stuck on is killing 10k each of skeleton, zombie, and spider. Due to the server plugin the number of mobs that can be spawned per time have a capacity limit which prolongs the amount of time needed to complete this level by a severe amount. So, my idea is to like cut it in half do like 5000 each mob kills since u (staff) do not play the server, u guys do not know the pain and how slow it is on lifesteal just to kill 10k mobs and let's not talk about killing 30k mobs all together....

P.S: What I said above is based upon me having a mob grinder for each mob and still working very slow on it.

AFK Pit seems like an interesting concept, but I hope there will be some kind of solution against ppl connecting multiple alts with console client.
