🏛️ New! Spawn


A brand new season can not be properly started without a new map, therefore we will be introducing a brand new spawn and warzone. This season they will be in the christmas theme to get those holidays started with a blast.
The warzone contains multiple mini-events in which you can compete, which are the following:
  • Outpost: Gather your island together every day at 16:00 server time to capture the outpost within the warzone.
  • Present Hunt: We've hidden 25 presents that drop around the warzone during this season, will you collect them all?

🧗‍♂️ New! Mines World
OpSkyBlock is in a huge need of a big update, and for this December reset we decided it is time. We will be adding a brand new world, that you can explore, filled with dangerous mines that can be explored. This mines world will hopefully give you the nostalgic feeling of having mines in OpSkyBlock but with a brand new touch to bring it to life.
When you enter the mine world, you will find yourself in a cave, filled with 8 portals.

Which portal will you enter? Are you even allowed to enter this portal, or do you need to power-up your playerlevel first? With 8 portals there is plenty of room to pick a zone to explore.
The 8 available zones are:
Hollow Snow Cave
Dive into a deep layer of snow, and explore the coldest cave out there.
Wild West Den
In need of some chaos? Jump in the Wild West Den, filled with amazing loot and mobs for you to fight.
Deep Caverns
Do we need to go deeper? Are you willing to risk entering this cave to get your hands on some worthy loot?
Flower Shelter
Finally, a peaceful cave filled with pretty flowers... Wait a minute, is this flower trying to attack you?
Crystal Cave
It's so bright down there that you might even be blinded by it. Do not get lost!
Blazing Pit
Ready to spice up things? The Blazing Pit is perfect to fight off some strong mobs with good drops.
Swamp Cavity
Just you and a frog, but be careful as these frogs are not as friendly as they might seem.
Sandy Subterrane
It looks like there's a permanent sandstorm going on down there, be careful as mobs might be hiding in plain sight.
These caves are filled with rare ores, and strong mobs trying to defend their own territory. So gear up and get ready to explore.
🔫 New! Skills

This season we will be introducing our new and custom version of McMMO, which we call "Skills", and this reset will come along with 5 brand-new skills.
The skills provide an experience and leveling mechanic for different actions which are especially bound to OpSkyBlock
Think about them as if they were McMMO, as you are able to gain experience and levels in farming, mining, enchanting, woodcutting, and combat aspects.

Every day will have different types of rewards, so make sure you don't miss any of them.

🥳 New! Community Milestones
This season we will be introducing a whole new feature as well, this feature is called the Community Milestones.
A community milestone is a goal that has to be reached by the whole server, you can see this as a global mission where all players participate.
Once the milestone has been completed a reward will be given to all online players.
Make sure to link your Discord account in order to receive those rewards.
After the milestone has been done, and the rewards have been given out, a new milestone will automatically start. Each milestone has a different time to complete, different rewards, and different tasks to do.
Some of the tasks a milestone can be:
  • Kill x blazes
  • Mine x ores
  • Collect x mob heads
  • ...and much more
🎈New! Tags
Tags are a new way to stand out in chat. You can earn tags by purchasing them on our store, or by getting a few of them available in-game. Some tags will be appearing in the transfer shop, some are obtained by grinding. So if you are planning to become even more fancy make sure to check out the new /tags.

💰 Updated! Auction House
We added the following currencies to be allowed to be used on the auction house:
Experience
Souls

🙉 Updated! Pets
Pets have received an update as well. Pets are still obtained through the Zoo Keeper. But there is more for you to discover now. Some new items that you can find and/or purchase will allow you to upgrade your pet tier. This way if you get a Common pet from your mystery egg you will still be able to improve your pet to legendary tier in the end, how great is that?
Pet Feeding
Each pet eats different custom crops that you will have to feed to your pet. If your pet is out of food it will be exhausted, and will no longer be able to provide you with a buff. Feed your pet every day to make sure it is in a perfect state, the more feeding you do the better your pet will be. If your pet hasn't been fed for over 16 hours it will be exhausted, your pet will no longer be activated when being exhausted.
🤵 Updated! Mob Suits
You can now upgrade your mobsuits by exploring the mine worlds. Your mob suits will give you a new boost to help fight off the dangerous mobs that can be found within the newly introduced mine world.
Upgrading your mobsuit for this world will be essential, so do not miss out.

We did our best to polish and fix as many existing bugs inside the OpSkyblock server. We have looked through all the bug reports and managed to fix them. If you come across any bug with the new release, make sure to report them at our forums under the Bug Reports section.
Here are a few of the bugs we squished out:

❓Questions & Answers

Why does OpSkyblock reset?
OpSkyblock is already up for some time. A reset has to happen to change and improve with new features, to make the game more exciting for you all! This then allows you players to have a fresh start and new players can begin to play without any significant disadvantage.
This means al 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 on 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.
