    GAMERS,

    SEASON 3 IS FINALLY HERE!
    There are so many exciting changes and new features to discuss... get some food and drank and kick back, relax, and read.

    Tomorrow - Saturday, June 27th at 1pm EST Season 3 will be released and available to all Ranked Players for 2 Hours Exclusively and at 3pm EST the server will be open to ALL PLAYERS. This 2 hour window is to show our appreciation to the players who keep us running... and to hopefully make sure we have a flawless launch :ROFLMAO:



    New Season... New Rank?!
    Introducing the fifth, and final Rank.
    VOID...

    Full Rank Info and All Rank Info will be updated before launch tomorrow.​



    SKILLS & CHALLENGES

    Farewell to the tedious Level 100 Skill grind... and good riddance to Skills being bound to your Island.
    Skills are now upgraded by completing Player Challenges so everyone is on a more balanced playing field.
    Also we added TWO new Skills this Season: Woodcutting and SLAYER.

    Skills no longer Level Up to access better resources; alternatively more powerful Tools are required to harvest higher tier resources.



    Ores and Trees at Spawn and in the Warzone are completely custom and have a "Health Pool" that determines how difficult it is to harvest a "drop" and how many "drops" are available before the Ore/Tree is depleted.
    Pickaxes and Woodcutting Axes have a Power Level that determines how much "Health" they deplete per block break.
    It is possible to get multiple "drops" per block break if you use a more Powerful Tool on a weaker Ore/Tree.

    CHALLENGS & CRAFTING
    Complete Player Challenges to Unlock new Crafting Recipes and more!

    Discover and complete Player Challenges in any order you wish; assuming you have the items required for the objective.

    There's a big emphasis on Crafting this Season. The majority of Crafting Recipes are Unlocked by completing Challenges.
    • Economy Recipes (Focused on Earning Stars)
      • Unlocked by finding Economy Crafting Pages/Books
    • Slayer Recipes (Weapons, Combat Armor and More)
    • Mining Recipes (Pickaxes, Mining Armor and More)
    • Woodcutting Recipes (Woodcutting Axes, Woodcutting Armor and More)
    • Farming Recipes (Farming Tools, Farming Armor and More)
    • Fishing Recipes (Fishing Rods and Fishing Armor)
    • Compact Recipes (Used to Craft many items)
    • Utility Recipes (Spells, Soulstone, Dynamite and More)
      • Unlocked by finding Utility Crafting Pages/Books
    • Gemstone Recipes (New Custom Enchantments)

    ENCHANTING & GEMSTONES

    Enchanting has been revised. Now you can buy the specific Vanilla Enchant you are looking for by clicking on the Enchant Table at Spawn (or any Enchant Table if you have one on your Island). The more powerful the Level of the Enchant the more Rare it is.
    For Example: Looting Max Level 5 will be really... really freaking rare.



    You can sell back unwanted Enchant Books for a modest XP return.



    Gemstones are the new way to obtain Custom Enchantments. There are no Levels/Tiers to Gemstones; simplifying the process and making all Custom Enchants more viable.
    Gemstones must be crafted by players. Unlock Crafting Recipes by completing Player Challenges.
    All Armor, Weapons and Tools come with a default 2 Gemstone Slots and you can add up to 5 total Slots by applying a Gemstone Slot to your item.




    Also all durability on Weapons and Tools has been REMOVED from the game.
    Only your Armor will take durability damage now. You can repair it with /fix or by paying Stars to the Repair NPC at Spawn.

    ISLANDS & TEAMS

    There are now 100 Island Levels to earn. Leveling up your Island will Unlock:
    • Increased Island Size
    • More Island Members
    • Redstone Utility Items (Pistons, Hoppers and More)
    • Custom Utility Items (Auto-Chests, Item Conduits and More)
    • Placing new Crops for Farming on your Island
    • Placing new Ore Seeds for Mining on your Island
    • Placing new Saplings for Woodcutting on your Island
    • Placing new Spawners on your Island (Not Slayer Related)
    • Placing new Schematics on your Island
    Teams will still greatly benefit from pooling their resources and leveling up their Island faster than solo players.
    Now that Skill Levels from Islands are removed ALL Players will now have to complete their own Player Challenges to unlock Crafting Recipes, new Mob Drops, and more for themselves. However, teams are welcome to and encouraged to map out strategies to excel faster by splitting into different objectives. Have some players mining ores while others are woodcutting and some farm. Someone could specialize in Mining to unlock, say, the Emerald Pickaxe Crafting Recipe and then with help from the Team lumberjack they can combine resources required and make an Emerald Pickaxe for everyone on the Team.

    Island Upgrades and Island Boosts have been modified to better assist with the new Season objectives.
    Expect to see more Island Upgrades in the future.



    ISLAND RESOURCES

    Want to build massive Farms, Woodcutting Forests and Ore Seed Mines?!
    Here's what you need to know:

    Ore Seeds will convert nearby stone in a 5x5x5 block range into their specific Resource and have a limited Ore Yield.


    Crops at Spawn and in the Warzone will drop seeds rarely, about 1% of the time. You can also find Seeds in Warzone Chests and Loot Openables.
    These Seeds are the foundation for building massive crop farms on your island.
    Crops on your Island will always return 1 seed so you can replant them.
    There is a rare chance that crops drop a bonus seed for you to expand your farm.



    Saplings can be planted on your Island and the trees that grow will have wood, not logs, and can be chopped down to provide bonus stats for Woodcutting. When you break Wood on your island there is a rare chance that they drop a Sapling to replant the tree and expand your forest. Don't throw these away they are valuable!



    KITS AND DAILY KIT

    Kits have been re-balanced for the start of the New Season and will be buffed as the Season progresses.
    • Warrior Set Bonus Changed: Grants bonus attack damage against Slayer Mobs, increases based on how many players are nearby
    • Wizard Set Bonus Unchanged
    • Builder Kit, Wizard and Warrior will scale more appropriately to the start of a new season
    • Looter Kit is unchanged - we will have a Loot Crate tomorrow at release that Looter Kit owners can claim
    • Daily Kit now Levels Up based on how many times it has been claimed.
      • Earn 5 XP per Kit Claim
      • Daily Kit Loot Table Improves based on Level
      • Ranks add a multiplier to all items the Daily Kit gives
      • Void Rank will have a 40% chance to earn double Kit Claim XP

    SKILL SETS & PETS

    Mining Set Bonus:

    Ores in Spawn and Warzone will Respawn 30% Faster and grants a chance to find Buried Treasure loot.
    Leveling up your Mining Set will apply the bonuses to more Ores

    Woodcutting Set Bonus:
    Trees in Spawn and Warzone will Respawn 30% Faster and grants a chance to find Bird Nest loot.
    Leveling up your Woodcutting Set will apply the bonuses to more Trees

    Farming Set Bonus:
    Crops in Spawn and Warzone will Respawn 30% Faster and grants a chance to find Ant Farm loot.
    Leveling up your Farming Set will apply the bonuses to more Crops

    Fishing Set Bonus:
    Fish will be lured 20% Faster and grants a chance to find Shipwreck loot.
    Leveling up your Fishing Set will apply the bonuses to more Fishing Pools

    "Slayer" Set Bonus: SECRET

    Mining, Woodcutting, Farming, Fishing and Slayer Pets all grant a 15% chance to receive an extra drop
    Leveling up your Pets will apply the bonus to more things.

    AUCTION, TRADE & COIN FLIP WORLD

    You can only list, bid and purchase Auctions while in this world. Same goes for player /trade and /coinflip...
    Enough said.


    There's a lot more to look forward to discovering.
    We have plenty of cool updates planned out for this Season as well.
    It's my belief that this was a much needed revamp of SkyBounds to keep things fresh and allow us to make better updates throughout the Season. Hope to see you all on tomorrow!

    PS - this post will have small changes/leaks throughout the next 24 hours. Keep an eye out.

    KOTH will return in a couple weeks.
    WARZONE updates are coming before KOTH.
    PvP Sweats - what do you want?

    There's none cause memes
    LOL you have no clue yet, Warzone will have plenty of value. Can't force people out there, but we can make it worth looting there and the new Gemstone system should make pvp much more interesting. Better balance.

    Also you tryna pick 10k flowers before you can pvp?
