1. [​IMG] Hey Everyone!

    While we wait for more bigger content to be completed, here's a fun little update to keep you guys occupied. Read on to see what's new!


    Slayer Quests

    [​IMG]

    If you want to tip your toes into some really challenging content, or if you enjoy incremental progression and theorycrafting, Slayer is where to go.

    Find Maddox in the basement of the Tavern in the SkyBlock Hub to do Slayer Quests.

    Maddox is a new NPC who lives under the tavern. His quests are fairly simple: Kill X number of monsters, then slay the boss.

    [​IMG]

    Each of the 3 bosses available today are split into 4 increasingly difficult tiers. The highest tier will challenge even the most hardened veterans out there. We recommend obtaining the highest possible skills, best equipment, top potions and some aiming skills before attempting Tier IV.

    [​IMG]

    Plenty of rewards await for those with the discpline to reach the top, including new armor sets fine-tuned against each bosses, new epic accessories, brand new minion types, upgrades, arrow poison, permanent stats, unique perks, tons of items... for a cost!

    Minion Balance
    Some Minions are strong, some are weak, some don't work correctly. Thanks to community involvement in the minion balance thread, we have the first Minion Balancing update.
    Keep in mind balancing is an ongoing process, give us your feedback!

    • Fixed Enchanted Potatoes not correctly turning into Baked Enchanted Potatoes with Super Compactor 3000.

    Bank Upgrades
    Players will soon have interesting things to buy, but in the meantime, banks are growing and it is time to introduce Bank Upgrades!

    Bank interests can now only stack up to 2 times, in case profiles are offline for a very long time.

    Bank interests now work based on the total amount of coins currently in the bank.
    From 0 coins to 10 million coins: 2% interest
    From 10 million coins to 20 million coins: 1% interest
    From 20 million coins to 30 million coins: 0.5% interest
    From 30 million coins to 50 million coins: 0.2% interest
    From 50 million coins to 160 million coins: 0.1% interest

    Bank interests are now capped based on Bank Upgrades:
    [​IMG]

    Upgrade 1: Gold Account (Requires 100k Gold Collection)
    Costs: 5 million coins + 1 Enchanted Gold Block
    Increases the Bank cap from 50 millions to 100 millions
    Also increase the interest cap from 15 millions to 20 millions (total of 300k interests maximum)

    Upgrade 2: Deluxe Account (Requires 250k Gold Collection)
    Costs: 10 million coins + 5 Enchanted Gold Blocks
    Increases the Bank cap from 100 millions to 250 millions
    Also increase the interest cap from 20 millions to 30 millions (total of 350k interests maximum)

    Upgrade 3: Super Deluxe Account (Requires 500k Gold Collection)
    Costs: 25 million coins + 20 Enchanted Gold Blocks
    Increases the Bank cap from 250 millions to 500 millions
    Also increase the interest cap from 30 millions to 50 millions (total of 390k interests maximum)

    Upgrade 4: Premier Account (Requires 1M Gold Collection)
    Costs: 50 million coins + 50 Enchanted Gold Blocks
    Increases the Bank cap from 500 millions to 1,000 millions
    Also increase the interest cap from 50 millions to 160 millions (total of 500k interests maximum)

    On top of that, we added a 1% tax on auctions collected above 1 million coins.
    Note that this tax can’t go below 1 million coins, so if you collect an auction at 1,005,000, you’ll get 1 million exactly)
    Let us know what you think!

    SkyBlock API
    We recently released the SkyBlock API, which will allow content creators to make very useful websites.
    By default some of your stats are turned ON or OFF by default, you can now find those options and toggle them in your SkyBlock Settings.


    A note on future content:
    As most of you already know, we are currently working on Dungeons.
    Dungeons require new technologies and features we never used before, and while we are making good progress, it should not come as a surprise that the very first Dungeon will take a lot longer to create than the next ones.
    The closer we get to release, the more infos we will give you.
    The next SkyBlock patch will be 0.7.3 and will feature more content, unrelated to Dungeons, and is expected to release within 2 to 3 weeks.

    As always, thank you for playing SkyBlock on Hypixel!

    Tier 4 is way too hard. Needed a party with a bunch of high tier players, and we still only managed to take down 1 Tier 4. Keep in mind most of us had 50m and full superior, but it still took us a good while. We tried to help Deo finish his Pack quest, and we didn't even manage to take down that wolf. Seriously, this is some hard stuff.

    Edit to this post: We’ve found an easier way to kill a T4 Rev., and that is to trap it in the obsidian sanctuary lava and get a couple superiors to gank it out. That’s the easiest way we can kill a T4. For the tarantula, it is even HARDER. There’s no easy way to kill it, and it does mass amounts of damage.
