    Queen Slime Boss

    A new challenger has awoken from the depths of her caves.. The Queen Slime.

    The Queen Slime is a brand new boss we're introducing to Season 1. The Queen includes a powerful drop table of loot, and a dangerous set of abilities to ward off any players that dare to challenge her.

    Some of the Queen's abilities:
    • Throw - Sends a player flying into the air.
    • Freeze - Traps you in a slime cage temporarily.
    • PoisonGas - The queen spits poisonous gas on you, poisoning you temporarily.
    • Enraged - The queen is enraged, her damage is doubled.
    • Fireball - Shoots fireballs.
    • Slow - Casts extreme slowness on you.
    • Slam - Knocks all nearby players backwards.
    The Queen will be spawnable at her lair with a Boss Egg obtainable via shop.


    Custom Enchants

    This reset we're introducing something brand new to Factions, Custom Enchants. We've gone ahead and completely revamped our custom enchantments system you may have seen on Skyblock to include a brand new tier of enchantment books, and numerous other useful enchantment items.

    [​IMG]

    You can access this enchantment menu by typing /ce in-game.


    KoTH System

    You'll be pleased to find out that we're bringing back KOTH better than ever. This time around we have 4 themed KoTH's directly around spawn, Winter, Nether, Desert, Forest. These KoTH's will happen periodically throughout the day.


    VoidChests

    VoidChests have been added this season! VoidChests will automatically sell whatever items end up inside it every 30 seconds. These chests will only be obtainable in crates or via the online store.

    Factions Top Rewards

    This time around we are trying out top faction rewards. The top 3 ranked factions on /f top after 90 days of reset shall receive the following rewards.

    #1 Faction: $100 Store Giftcard
    #2 Faction: $75 Store Giftcard
    #3 Faction: $50 Store Giftcard

    To view the top factions type /f top.
    You have 90 days to become the best faction, goodluck.


    Worlds:
    Main World: 10,000 Border

    End World: 5,000 Border

    Nether World: 5,000 Border

    Each border will have perfectly aligned chunks to the border this time around.


    Rare Armor sets

    Introducing Phantom and Grinder armor. These rare and unique armor sets will obtainable as a rare drop from the Queen Slime, crates, or found as treasure while mining.

    This sounds like a great improvement, with the border lined up with chunks and all.

    But just a few questions

    1: is the border on the center of the block or on the edge?
    Edge of block: https://gyazo.com/171bb78229c3f91b5f75787433d90b25
    Middle of block: https://gyazo.com/ce3da814378bb9834af2c62caed5aa79
    I know it isn't a huge deal, but I'm sure most people would much prefer it to be on the edge of the block.

    2: has the "1 second left" glitch been fixed with chunk busters?

    3: Will /pay be re introduced

    4: Will we keep previously purchased perms like /fly, /fix etc

    5: Will a trailer be made for the factions reset? (Great way to get information around, if so, will there be a rewards system like one key per hundred views if you re-upload trailer?) Get Dizcover to make one lmao

    6: Will an eco sheet be released? (explains how much spawners cost, how much the drops sell for, along with Cactus, Cane and any other main methods of producing income)

    5. No minor changes towards shop have been made yet. I'll update the post if anything major changes.

    Ask Dizcover, he made the last two. If you do go with this, I would suggest a reward of like one vote key per 100 views or something. Great way to get the trailer out and about around youtube, seeming some Omega players have hundreds of subscribers

    The main world has a custom factions generated biome. There's a staff beta testing session soon for the rest so I'll be sure to have someone try out the different pvp styles.

    Carrying on with that point, will there be a beta testing? If so, I bet I could find a couple bugs around duping and that.
