Skyblock is finally resetting after way too long! This reset has been the culmination of multiple months of work and we're pleased to announce it! In addition to the many things debuting this reset we will also be getting on with multiple mid season updates and features for all of you!
We also thank everyone for their input in the beta a couple of weeks ago and assure you guys that the work you did greatly helped us in our mission to make the best Skyblock experience possible!
We are also announcing here that Skyblock will fully release to the public on Friday 22nd of April at 2pm EST. The season will feature all of the new things experienced in the beta along with other planned things down the road.
Skyblock has been sitting quite comfortably on the version of 1.16.5 for a long time now. Minecraft has moved on since then and for this reset we are releasing with the latest and greatest version of Minecraft. All of the 1.17 & 1.18 features for you all to play with!
Due to changes in Minecraft 1.17 and 1.18 we will not be allowing connections from versions lower than 1.18 so unfortunately we are dropping support for legacy versions.
If you joined the beta you will have seen that upon joining a custom resource pack was automatically installed for you. This is what will be providing Blaze Skyblock with a lot of unique features and content as well as some quality of life additions to make your experience better.
These additions include but are not limited to:
The benefits of the resource pack will also be seen throughout the rest of this post and upon joining they will be even more clear!
The pack should automatically download upon joining but if it doesn't then all you need to do is type /reloadpack ingame to refresh all of the textures in a matter of seconds so you can enjoy it!
Along with the brand new reset we've decided that the old spawn had served it's purpose and we had a completely new spawn built and decorated to make all of the information necessary easily accessible in a more compact area that is friendly to new players yet still familiar in style.
Below you can see some of the amazing pictures of the spawn:
Before we move onto PVE as a small note the regular warzone bosses have been temporarily disabled. There is a large plan for what will replace them but that will be coming soon. All quests and missions around PVP bosses have been changed to other things.
One of the largest changes of this reset will be to the PVE Mine. It's a feature that everyone knows and loves that makes Blaze Skyblock so interesting and we thought we'd make it even better. Introducing the brand new Monsters that have invaded the mine, these are by no means easy to take on but sure are cool.
Here is the monsters in order of tier
The last section revealed so much about the new PVE and we cant wait for all of you to get stuck into it! Though this wont be a surprise after reading the last section we have introduced completely custom drops for PVE Mobs as well as crafting recipes to use them in to give you an incredible edge in the mine!
I wont detail all of the almost 40 different custom items that have been implemented with regard to these PVE Mobs here but in-game you can type /help and click on custom items to find every single one and how to craft them!
The new items and recipes include:
This set of custom items and drops will only expand as time goes on and we cant wait to give you guys even more variety!
We couldn't let you guys miss out on all of the Easter goodness on Skyblock so with the reset we are also showing off our first monthly crate in a long time and what comes with it is going to make it well worth it. Inside it is a possibility of 5 different Easter themed items all with their own abilities and uses!
These items not only provide you with an advantage but some much needed swag too ;D
If we have any pixelmon players joining this season they will know what Blaze Gear is. It's designed specifically for Skyblock and is a helpful tool that is available in the starter kit to help you navigate any part of the server you wish! You can see it as the little mobile phone in your inventory when you spawn and you can open it by right clicking.
Information that is included:
We are glad that you guys have all stuck with us through all of the delays and we hope you enjoy the Skyblock reset. After release there are plans for events and updates so be sure to join and enjoy all of the new content!
The new season of Skyblock will release on Friday 22nd of April at 2pm EST
