It’s time to say goodbye to the boring, old wooden signs! It’s 2019 after all. For the first time in years, our talented build team has created a whole New Tutorial map, inspired by Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. As a newbie, you’ll be greeted by Grover, the protector who will set you on your very first quest. Escape the school from bloodthirsty cyclops and once you make your way through the mythical portal and you think you’re safe - you’re wrong. Your next task is a dangerous, yet epic one and that’s to slay the minotaur who will try to stop you from getting to safety. The intention behind the introduction of this tutorial is to give our newbies a better first impression, setting them right into the mythical world while providing tips and information in a more interactive way.
We’ve been listening to you and heard about how you want new mechanics and activities in the game and this is how we’ll begin. We will be reintroducing custom crafting in our next update which is coming very soon! On top of that, custom mining & ores will also be implemented. If you’re a fan of MMORPGs like World of Warcraft or Runescape, you will already be familiar with this concept.
Mining sites will be found around areas like Camp Half-Blood, Camp Jupiter, The Underworld, Olympus, North Woods.. The list goes on. Anyways, by mining ores in these sites, you can prospect magical metals such as: Celestial Bronze, Imperial Gold, Stygian Iron and even more! As you could imagine, our new mining system will tie in with our custom crafting, allowing you to acquire blessed and awesome items even easier!
So let’s call this new mining mechanism “RPG Mining” to help explain how it works.
- These special ores will only be found in designated mining sites, for example: In a cave at Olympus
- The ore will be represented as a regular ore
- Once you have successfully mined the ore, an item will drop, i.e Celestial Bronze Ore
- The ore block will turn into bedrock and have a cooldown, say 30 seconds before it reverts back into an ore that you can mine again.
We will be working hard to make this as best as we can for you so we hope you're looking forward to it! And please remember, if you have any suggestions or want to give us any feedback, we are always here to listen to you.
