The server may have been a bit challenging to newbies, "how to get Runestones?" "what are Infinity Blocks?" so we have decided to simplify the gameplay a bit while maintaining the same level of competitiveness.
Runestones are now fully purchasable using in-game cash. You will no longer need to first purchase Infinity Blocks, collect the three ingredients, then buy Runestones. These extra steps no longer exist.
💀NEW SKULLS SHOP
The Skulls Shop is finally out of BETA! The new shop makes PvPing very rewarding and it allows you to purchase perks that you would otherwise not be able to obtain unless from the server's store.
There are also new items such as the Warlord kit, Autocraft Chest, and the Warlord items.
➦ You may now purchase Skulls from the store and spend them as you wish!
➦ Use /skulls pay <name> to trade Skulls with other players
💰NORSE ITEMS + PURCHASES
If you purchase the following items after APRIL 7TH you will get them back once the new season is released:
- April Crate

If you purchased a Global Rank, you will be able to claim your rewards again! (Boosters, Cash bonuses, & island radius/slots increase)
Use the command /RECLAIM after the new season is released to get your bonuses.
If you have an item with the following lore you will be able to move it over to the new season by typing /norse and placing the item in the inventory.
NORSE VAULT SIZES:
Default: 1 Row
Merchant: 2 Rows
Warrior: 3 Rows
Chieftain: 4 Rows
King/Queen: 5 Rows
The Norse vault will be opened on April 14th 00:01 AM EST (24 hours prior to the reset)
👑VIKING OF THE HILL
A new PvP event is here! Every 4 hours there will be a VoTH event at the Helheim realm. You can teleport there using /warp pvp
In order to win, members of an Island will have to stay on the bone blocks (the middle) for 3 full minutes. If they succeed without being knocked out by another Island, they will all win a VoTH crate key.
Our main goal for the Skyblock realm is competition and so we added leaderboards sot hat players can see how well they are doing compared to others!
There is currently four leaderboard types that can be accessed with /TOP:
PVP & PVE LEADERBOARDS
➦ Mobs Killed Leaderboards (by entity type)
➦ Players Killed Leaderboard
➦ Skulls Leaderboard
THE OTHER TWO TYPES
➦ Blocks Broken leaderboards (by block type)
➦ Crops Harvested Leaderboards (by crop type)
We now offer giftcard rewards to the top 3 players that have broken the most Sugar Cane and have the most Skulls
You can navigate through the different entity and block types.
📦NEW VOTE CRATE
Voting is now more rewarding than ever! The new Vote crate has over 20+ Rewards classified into Common, Uncommon and Rare. Some of the new rewards are:
- Thor Runestones
- Loki Runestones
- Odin Runestones
- Rank Upgrade
- Sell Boosts
- Store Coupons
- Explosive tools

⛏️MYTHICAL HOE UPDATE
Since we have banned Pistons & Observers, we are revamping the Mythical Hoes. These hoes will now automatically sell all cane or crops that you break using it. You have to shift-click the tool in order to enable the selling mode.
After that the tool will break crops in a 3x3 area and automatically sell the crops for you. Instant money! We also made the tool available INGAME in the skulls shop as well as on the store so you can get your hands on one without spending money!
🐔NEW STACKING SYSTEM
We have completely re-coded our Mob stacking system. Additionally, Spawners & dropped items will now stack as well. These changes will allow the server to run smoothly and also improve your FPS and allow you to have way more spawners in a compact area.
You may now duel your friends/enemies by executing the command /duel <name> and it will send a request. You have the option to bet money and if you lose you will lose your bet. You can also bet items! Make sure your inventories are not full prior to accepting/sending a duel request or you might lose your item bet.
