🏛️ New! Spawn
It is time for a new season, and what better way to do that than with a brand new spawn. Like every season the spawn will be filled with information & features, here is a list of the things you can find around spawn.
🐉 A new spawn with an old-school oriental theme.
⛰️ The spawn contains multiple KOTHs again.
❓ Looking for some help? There are plenty of NPCs explaining all the features.
📦 Supply drops can be found all around the warzone, this season with more drops at once.
🔑 A new seasonal crate has been added again.
🗺️ Updated! Worlds
As every season needs a spawn we will also need some worlds for you to start your base in. There will be an overworld and an end world like all seasons, and worlds themed to the worlds fitting for this reset.
There will be a total of 20 corners, these being the following
🌍 OverWorld (/spawn)
The border for the overworld will be 10,000 x 10,000 (-5,000 to 5,000) - The spawn is located in the middle.
⛰️ KOTHs will be located at each side of /spawn close to it.

⚔️ New! Dueling System
PvPing has been a big part of OpFactions so we are always looking into things to improve this aspect even more.
For this season we will be doing something completely brand new, the Dueling system.
Players have been asking us many times for a Dueling system and I can proudly announce that it's finally happening within this season.
The dueling system works as followed:
Start by dueling a player.
You will be able to send a duel request to a player using the /duel command. If I want to duel voodootje0, I will type /duel voodootje0. voodootje0 will be able to accept or deny this request. Before sending the Duel Request you will be promoted with a menu for some settings for that Duel. You can toggle the usage of Custom Enchantments within these duels, and enderpearls. These settings will be saved once you have selected them once, but you can spice it up and change them for any future battle as well.
Lock in your inventory.
Upon accepting a duel request an inventory will open where you can select the items that you are bringing into this duel. Each player can click items from their inventory to be added to the Duel Kit. Both players will have to accept or deny the selected items, once you have settled on the items it's time for the wager.
Select the wager.
After accepting the duel items it's time to place your bets. Will you be playing for the inventory, or should you keep the items that you bring into this fight?
You can choose both options. On top of that, you can put in money and items as well. Simply increase or decrease the amount of money by clicking the icons shown within this menu.
You can drop in items into this menu as well simply by clicking on them inside your inventory. Make sure you have everything ready because you can not take out these items after already accepting the duel request.
Time to fight!
Once you have agreed on the items being brought in the duel, and the rewards it is time to fight. You and your opponent will be teleported into an arena where you can fight till the death. The winner is decided by killing your opponent.
After the fight is over and the winner has been decided you can pick up your won items from the /maildelivery. The wagered money will automatically go into your account.

📜 New! Quest Vouchers
Quest Vouchers are a new type of voucher that will let you complete a specific Quest in order to receive a reward.
These Vouchers will be integrated throughout the game and will be soul-bounded once activated. You can expect to find these Vouchers in places like:
Crates
Supply Drops
Transfer Shop
Boss Loot Bag
Dungeon Mobs
Boss Drops
Monthly Crates
and more...!
The Quest Vouchers can only be activated 10 times a day.
They will have an expiry time after you have activated them. In order to start the quest simply right-click the voucher to enable it. Your quest will now be active and can be viewed using the /quests command.
Some very hard quests that will be obtained only by going through hell will broadcast your name once you complete them. There will also be leaderboards for these Quest Vouchers that you can compete in.
🦒 New! Pets

We think it's finally time to bring Pets into OpFactions, to further enhance the PvP at our factions server.
These pets will be your little buddy inside your inventory. Once they are inside your inventory you will be able to activate their ability, simply by right-clicking with the pet item.
These pets can be leveled up using a Rare Candy or by using them in battle. The Pet will gain experience each time the ability has been activated.
For the release of this new pet feature, we decided to add 5 pets to start off with.

🐻 Bear Pet🦆 Duck Pet🐋 Whale Pet🐝 Bee Pet🐪 Camel Pet
Receive absorption hearts when activated. The amount of hearts depends on the level of your bear pet.
Gain a temporary sell boost when selling loot with a sell wand or to /shop. You can activate this temporary boost also by right-clicking with your pet.

Spawns a jail around you that lasts for 7 seconds. Depending on the pet level the size will increase. The jail will only place blocks if there is no block placed there around you yet.
Gain a few random potions when used. You will earn more potions depending on the level of your bee pet.Gain a temporary exp boost when grinding mobs You can activate this temporary boost also by right-clicking with your pet.



🤵 New! Special Sets
Special sets will be rare sets that have been added to OpFactions. These sets will all have their own unique ability and will be swapped around per season. For this season there are 4 special sets matching the theme.
Those 4 sets are:

🗡️ Samurai Set💨 Shogun Set🍃 Ninja Set🛡️ Mercenary Set
This highly skilled class of warriors serves with a special set with an eternal source of energy.

- 5% increased damage to all enemies.
- 10% less damage is taken from all enemies.
Shogun has the ability to be agile at any given time and finish your opponent with a single blow.
- a 5% chance to deal knockback to all players around you.
- 10% increased damage to all enemies.
A Ninja knows how to bolt out of any situation with a dash in no time with lightning speed.
- a 3% chance to get a speed boost when you are hit.
- 15% less damage is taken from all enemies.
Mercenaries are hired professional soldiers who fight for Factions. You are that mercenary. - 10% increased damage to all enemies.
- 15% less damage is taken from all enemies.



💆 New! Skull Rewards
Upon obtaining the Headless enchantment you will now be able to trade in these heads for some cash. This will add a whole new strategy to our OpFactions server.
Upon selling this head you will receive 10% of the player's balance that you killed. So this will add a whole new level to PvP, making it a risk to just drop in and fight without making sure you have spent your money wisely. One mistake can make a whole difference.
To prevent people from sniping money from players you will only be able to sell the head within 1 hour after obtaining it.
Sell your heads with /sellhead



👹 Updated! Masks
The masks are a great addition to the game, but they are in need of some small changes to be utilized to their full potential.
The low health values have been higher up a bit, so the low health abilities will activate a bit sooner for every mask.
For this season we made those required changes and the masks will now have the following:
Golden Knight MaskEctoplasm MaskCockatrice MaskPyroclast Mask
Receive 15.0% less damage from enemies.
Deal 15.0% more damage to enemies.
Gain 2 more hearts when wearing.
7.5% Chance to knockback nearby players on low health.
Immune to poison
Receive 10% less damage from enemies.
Deal 5% more damage to poisoned enemies.
5% Chance to receive Speed 5 on low health.
10% Chance to receive Absorption 5 on low health.
Deal 15% more damage to enemies.
Immune to fire damage.
Deal 7.5% more damage to enemies on fire.

🔫 Updated! Skills

We will be adding two more skills to the table, those being Acrobatics and Salvaging.
Acrobatics Skill
Acrobatics is a skill that allows Graceful Roll, as well as combat damage negation with the passive skill "Dodge".
Dodge Ability (Unlocked by default)
Take no fall damage when activated.
Experience in Acrobatics is gained by taking fall damage, and successfully rolling on the ground.
Salvaging Skill
Salvage is the ability to reclaim the base materials from tools and armor.
Arcane Salvage Ability (Unlocks at Salvaging Level 15):
This ability allows enchanted books to also appear when salvaging enchanted items. The chance of successfully extracting a full or partial enchantment increases per level.
Advanced Salvage (Unlocks at Salaving Level 35):
When unlocked, this ability allows damaged items to be salvaged. The yield percentage increases with the level.
Experience in Salvaging is gained by tinkering and enchanting items. You will also earn salvaging experience by using the salvage abilities. This ability can be used by right-clicking an iron block.

⚙️ Fixed! Bugs
We did our best to polish and fix as many existing bugs inside the OpFactions server. We have looked through all the bug reports and managed to fix them. If you come across any bugs with the new release, make sure to report them at our forums under the bug reports section.
