New Custom Item, Phantom Event Changes & Fixes

Wand of Regeneration

  • 25 coins.
  • Only looks like a stone hoe.
  • Takes 1 seed from harvested crops and uses it to replant the crop.
  • Works on wheat, beetroot, carrots, potatoes, melon/pumpkin stems, and netherwart.
  • If you right-click one of the above blocks with it, it will use bonemeal from your inventory to grow it faster. Works on all except netherwart.
  • Unbreakable.

Get yours from Winter at the Phantom Arena now!

Phantom event Changes

  • The code that drops you in front of the arena when you die actually works now.
  • This code has been expanded–when you die during a phantom event, you keep all your levels and you do not drop your items. A Phantom event is now no risk, 100% reward.
  • We no longer need to set the entire server to night time or shut off the weather for an event. Phantom Event darkness is entirely local to the Arena.
  • Events automatically terminate after twenty-five minutes (events usually take fifteen minutes).
  • Because events can auto-terminate, we feel comfortable automatically scheduling events for people on the other side of the world, even if we can’t be around to supervise. We’re going to start automatically scheduling Wednesday/Saturday events and see how it goes.


Fixed a bug with the blacksmith’s instructions text going off the screen.

As Always

Thanks to Solly for ferociously maintaining our custom code base, tracking down bugs and nuking them from orbit.


Pick Fixes

Breaking bedrock is a powerful magic. Therefore we added to our plans a pick that will break bedrock but have limited uses. I’ve played on other public Minecraft servers with similar items, so I’m confident that it will be useful but not overpowered.

We don’t have a timeframe for this pick yet, but I’m hoping the coding effort involved is small enough for Solly to do in an evening.


New this week

We increased the town upkeep from $100/day to $200/day, and we have a new custom item to announce.

In honor of our good friend McAlmond, we announce:

Almond cake

  • 5 coins.
  • Single use,
  • Makes mobs peaceful to you and you peaceful to them.
  • Satisfies the same amount of hunger as eating an entire cake.
  • The effects end if you die.

Temperamental, that Ender Blade.

Please remember that our custom items are in beta. Be patient while we clean up any problems.


Updates to the Ender Blade

Solly has added a new feature to the Ender Blade, the first of a few threatened updates. If you tame an Ender Blade by feeding it 10,000 souls (killing 10,000 mobs), then you can control the direction in which it teleports you; i.e. presumably not into lava.

The patch is live on the server now.

If you have an Ender Blade currently, ask a staff member (me or Solly) to replace it with the new, tameable one for you.
