Among other things, the following has been changed/updated, there may be additions to this over the next few days, based on your guy's suggestions, so make sure to keep suggesting!


📚CustomEnchantments

We will be introducing a couple of brand new enchantments you can get! Also after various reports of enchantments not working have we looked over all enchants, we revamped enchantments removed enchantments, and much needed buffs and nerfs are also done.

  • Fixed tank enchantment
  • FIxed demon forged enchantment
  • Removed mob slayer enchantment
  • Fixed angelic enchantment
  • Nerfed shockwave enchantment
  • Fixed hulk enchantment
  • Added trap enchantment ( freezes enemy in place when hit with bow )
  • Added training enchantment ( gives more mcmmo while grinding )
  • Added featherweight enchantment for swords ( you get haste after hitting enemy )
  • Added Hellfire enchantment ( shoots more than 1 arrow depending on level )
  • Added insomnia Add insomnia for bows ( gives insomnia to enemies ) for bows ( gives insomnia to enemies )
👨‍🚀 New builds

Of course, we have to have some new builds. We can’t just reset without changing the face of the spawn. This season we will be introducing a brand new spawn within the theme space! We hope you like it.

Based on the feedback from you, last season, we have also resized the warzone of the map. Many of you thought that it was way too big for the number of players that we’re fighting and that is the reason that this season it is much smaller.

The warzone contains several things that you can compete in:

🚀 Outpost: Gather your island together every day at 16:00 server time to capture the outpost within the warzone.
📦 Supply crates: Supply crates have been reworked and new loot has been added. We’ve hidden 25 supply crates in the warzone, can you find them all?

🏦Improved Shop/Economy

This reset, we are making adjustments to the economy, specifically for the prestige loot prices, in order to ensure that our economy is a little more balanced, we will keep the gameplay more fast-paced. This will make it still a fun to play as Opskyblock since our gameplay is still more overpowered.

Not only have we adjusted some shop prices we also updated the shop! We have heard your feedback, and we are adding some new blocks too!

  • Ores are now purchasable
  • All types of fences
  • Rebalanced mob drops & presitged loot prizes.
  • Changed booster stacking for ichest.
  • Sings added
  • Obsidian added
  • Custom crops added.
  • We have decided to KEEP ichest within opskyblock.
  • Made it possible to buy stacked spawners.
  • And a couple more blocks added.

❌ Removals

In order to make everyone's Skyblock experience better, we have removed a few features present last map. Here is a list of those removals and a justification for each:
  • PvpMine: A lot of people suggested removing the pvpmine so we did.
  • Quests: We have decided to remove quests but add a replacement for it called playerlevels.
  • /Sethome: We have removed the sethome command, players abused it to get back to places and islands they shouldn't.
  • Customenchantments: We removed mobslayer enchantment
📊 Player levels

Player levels are a great way for you to show your skills within Skyblock. In the duration of the new reset, you will be able to grind your way through our level system. We will use this level system as a replacement for the current quests system.

All players start at Level 0, the beginning levels will be basic, simple challenges to help people get used to the skyblock gamemode.

Progression is key, so as you level up your challenges will get harder and harder as you pass each level. For every level you level-up you will receive a reward. The rewards can be anything from enchantment books to pets to unlocking new permissions! To begin with, we will be introducing 75 levels.

🛍️Transfer

The transfer system has been fully set up again. All the prices have been redone, new stocks have been introduced and of course, we couldn’t just update it without some brand new items available!

Not only have we completely updated the transfer we also after the request have added mob coins banknotes, instead of having one single mobcoin can you now also withdraw them like you can with your money.

⚙️ Fixes & Bugs

We have listened to your feedback. We have taken all of the reports you have submitted and we have worked on each and every single one of them to make sure that they aren’t repeated this season. If you do encounter any bugs or issues in the new season please use the bug report system the same as the last map and we will look to fix them as soon as possible during the new reset!

☘️Custom Crops

Everyone knows about the vanilla farmable items but no one really used them last season due to them not being very profitable.

To change it up, this season we will be introducing custom crops that are outside of vanilla Minecraft.

We have created them in such a way that they cannot be farmed whilst AFK and because of this, you will also receive a nice sell price for farming the items.
The selling prices are a great way to get you started and are easy to obtain for any player, even those who are less advanced.

⚒️Repair System

We have decided that the way the repair system used to work, wasn’t ideal. We have redone this and updated it. Instead of individually repairing items in /repairer, a GUI will now pop up, directly allowing you to repair items.

  • Diamond Chestplate - Repair all your armor
  • Gold Chestplate - Repair the armor you’re currently wearing
  • Gold Sword - Repair your weapons
  • Diamond Pickaxe - Repair your tools
  • Minecart Chest - Repair your full inventory
The new repair system will now automatically calculate the cost of repair and will repair it based on what you click and need.

⏰Spawner Value

At the end of last season, we saw people exploiting spawners by placing them very late into the season or mining them to trade. To stop this from happening, the spawner value will appreciate over time.

It begins at 0% of its value and depending on the spawner will take time to reach its maximum value of 100%. If you place them at the end of the season for the payout, they will not add a massive value to your island and if you mine them then you will lose the value and have to start all over again.

⁉️ Questions & Answers

Why did opskyblock reset?

Skyblock just needed a reset, it wasn't updated for weeks so to make skyblock work again was a reset required. So here it is a fresh new skyblock with updates!

This means all islands, items, money and the map will be reset. Nothing will be kept leftover from the previous map. Of course, all purchases will be reissued so nobody will be out of pocket in that regard. 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 kind of gameplay and style being 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?

  • Your islands
  • All items in your inventory and ender chest
  • Any currencies such as money and exp
  • Chatcolor permissions.
  • Seasonal ranks and perks.
What will I keep?
  • Purchased Ranks & Rank Upgrades
  • Purchased Perks
  • Won out of crates commands/ranks



We hope to see you in our new OpSkyblock server soon!
If you have feedback or any suggestion, let us know we'd love to make this as good as we can.

Can't wait!!! but to bad I can't play after reset due to some upcoming exams. But good luck to y'all!!. I'm genuinely excited to play OPSB when it resets and the update of it sounds pretty LIT. Thanks for removing the PVP mine and the other new enchantment sounds pretty pog can't wait to try it!. The only problem is the enchantment orb, I don't know if its rare or not but if it's rare isn't it quite a rip off cause 1 enchantment orb only allows you to put 1 enchantment right? But anyways thank you Pika for also adding bow boosting. It'll be lit no CAP

Really didn't like the fact that chatcolors are gone after reset i mean it's considered a perk so it should be a Lifetime voucher and i also didn't like the fact that people will be able to buy spider eyes it ruins the game for many people.

But the only problem I think we might have with this reset is eco beaking because of the overuse of it but with this season I think that will kinda be fixed because of lower prices it might make sense to grind mobs not just in the beginning but also late-ish game.
