    Changelog

    Custom Enchant Rework
    A very heavily requested change to the server was to rework our custom enchant system allowing users to purchase the enchantments they want. We kept the roots of our enchanter but provided the option for players to purchase the exact enchants they want in addition to making the EXP economy overall easier

    • Enchanter now has every custom enchant available at every level
    • Level 1 enchants cost 40 EXP levels and level 2 enchants cost 50 EXP levels
    • You can optionally purchase a random enchantment book at a random level for 35 EXP levels
    • Enchant prices are based on levels but converted in raw EXP amounts to combat the exponential EXP scaling
    • Soul tracker price has been decreased from 10,000 EXP -> 1,395 EXP (30 levels)
    • Black scroll price has been decreased from 30,000 EXP -> 5,345 EXP (50 levels)
    • White scroll price has been decreased from 50,00 EXP -> 5,345 EXP (50 levels)
    • Magic dust price has been decreased from 4,500 EXP -> 550 EXP (20 levels)
    • Randomization scroll price has been decreased from 5,000 EXP -> 2,920 EXP (40 levels)
    Engram Rework
    The engram finder upgrade on the harvest hoe was admittedly subpar when compared to the other available upgrades. Old engrams would give you a variety of different economy-related items that you could sell for extra currency but failed to provide the gameplay impact envisioned during the creation and implementation of the feature. We have reworked engrams completely. Engrams are still earned and redeemed in the same way as before, but now provide the user with more meaningful rewards.

    \​
    • Engram finder's activation rate has massively decreased (max = 0.03%)
    • The five available tiers of Engrams are: Basic, Common, Rare, Legendary, and Exotic
    • Each tier has 2-3 different armor sets
    • You will receive a single armor piece per engram
    Outpost Rework
    After introducing the crucible, the excavator outpost's identity was unclear. There was no meaningful difference between the two outposts and the perks they provided to their controlling faction. We have reworked the excavator and crucible outposts both respectively giving them a clear purpose. The excavator outpost will provide useful bonuses to factions who prefer to farm in the protection of their claims. The crucible outpost is ideal for daring factions who seek combat whether that be in the crucible, warzone, or anywhere else.


    • Added an exit portal to the Excavator Outpost, this portal will teleport you to the same location as the Crucible exit
    • Added /warp excavator so you can optionally teleport to the outpost warp rather than the capture point if you are currently controlling the outpost
    Monthly Kits
    Each month a new kit will be introduced, the kits can be redeemed every 2 days and are permanent unlocks. To unlock these kits head to https://shop.karismicmc.com/



    Rule Changes
    Based off of feedback provided during season IX we have made changes to our rules. It is recommended that factions participating in season X familiarize themselves with the rules and reach out to staff to clarify any questions they might have

    Other
    • New builds for spawn and crucible
    • Removed the large grinding area at Crucible
    • new June Lootbox
    • new June Kit
    • new June Guardian
    • new Nitro Guardian
    • Changed owner prefix to orange and manager prefix to yellow
    • Updated voucher plugin which will allow for new types of interactive items
    • Decreased obsidian blast durability from 5 -> 4
    • Helper's factions now appear in there nametag like other player groups
    • Fixed voting issues that were caused by an internal server change
    • Revamped Nitro boost rewards. Upon nitro boosting you will unlock /kit nitro for 14d (usually once per map) and will receive the following items (additional boosts up to 3 per month will reward you with an additional lootbox. Nitro lootboxes can only be opened by a user with the Nitro kit currently unlocked)
    • Completely removed mcMMO from the server
    • Mobs that are not killed by a player will no longer drop EXP. This prevents players from accumulating massive stacks of mobs, and then pushing them to their death or burning the stack to receive a large amount of EXP significantly faster than it would take to earn that EXP by farming mobs
    • Villagers, Creepers, and Pig Zombies will not drop any items as well if killed by a player
    • Increased the required tier to unlock a Tool Selection voucher from battlepass from 1 -> 5
    • Removing coinflips is no longer a Titan+ donator perk. This is available to all users. Cancel a coinflip by right clicking your own bet inside the /coinflip menu twice
    • Removed the $10,000 cost for /fix and the $50,000 cost for /fix all
    • Reduced the damage increase given by the Knight/Shark mask from 10% -> 5%
    • new Sand Bot broadcast
    • Updated numerous NPCs around spawn
    • Added a new Aether world
    • Corrected formatting error in the June 2020 Pandora Box opening hologram
    • Massively buffed all crates
    • Increased sandbot limit to 15
    • Numerous rule changes, it is reccomended that you review the rule document
    • /f who no longer shows information related to the Faction's claimed land
