Prison: Blaze Reset

Prison: Blaze Reset

Hey all, and welcome to the Prison Blaze Reset post!

The next season of the Prison Blaze realm will be released this Saturday November 14th @ 1:00 PM EST / 4:00 AM AEST / 6:00 PM GMT

Resets include a fresh wipe of the entire map, which means your plot, chests, private vaults, McMMO, currency, and all materials you own in-game will be gone.

However, your ranks, kits, Gkits, tags, disguises, or anything that has been promised to you as a permanent purchase will stay with you through to the next map. This also includes Black Market items that you purchased last season.

New Spawn

Take a look at the awesome new Blaze themed spawn!

The Quarry

When you reach Prestige level 1, you will gain access to the brand new Quarry area and will be gifted a Lost Miner Pickaxe. The Quarry area will be home to 6 mines, with each mine having it's own unique custom ore inside.

When you mine the custom ore, there will be a chance for you to get the custom ore item in your inventory, which you'll then be able to use to create special Custom Ore pickaxes. The drop rate for the custom ore depends on the level of the Custom Ore pickaxe and what abilities you have unlocked - mining these ores levels up your pickaxe and allows you to upgrade the perks and improve it's abilities.

Here's what custom ores you can look forward to seeing and when you can mine them:

  1. Ruby (Prestige 1)
  2. Topaz (Prestige 5)
  3. Platinum (Prestige 10)
  4. Cobalt (Prestige 15)
  5. Opal (Prestige 20)
  6. Uranium (Prestige 25)

As shown in the list, after every 5 Prestige levels you will gain access to a new mine area in the Quarry. You will only be able to mine blocks successfully in the new ore mine if you have crafted a pickaxe using the custom ores of the previous mine tier. For example, you can only mine Platinum ore (tier 3) if you have a pickaxe made out of Topaz ore (tier 2).

Augmentations

Augmentations are part of the newly reworked Fragments system! Fragments would be collected as they currently exist through mining and crates, and can be combined in large quantities for a chance that they successfully combine into an Augmented Fragment. When Fragments are combined, the combination could fail, or it could turn into 1 of 4 tiers of Fragment:

  • 1x Dull Augmented Fragment is produced
  • 1x Shiny Augmented Fragment is produced
  • 1x Sparkly Augmented Fragment is produced
  • 1x Glowing Augmented Fragment is produced

These new Augmented Fragments can then be used in the special Fragment enchantment table found in /fragment. You will be able to enchant your Augmented Fragments and make them into Augmentations. For example, if you have Sparkly Augmented Fragments, when enchanted it'll turn into a Sparkly Augmentation. This enchantment process will require a certain amount of Augmented Fragments and EXP to do.

Augmentation Abilities

When an Augmented Fragment is turned into an Augmentation via the method described above, it will gain an enchantment style ability, with higher tiered Augmentations (such as Glowing) giving more powerful abilities than lower tiered ones (such as Dull).

The fully completed Augmentation can then be applied to a tool or weapon. Only 1 Augmentation can be applied per tool or weapon, with the ability to purchase additional Augmentation slots being added in the future. Unlike normal enchantments, you can freely remove Augmentations at any time. You can do /aug in game to find out more.

Here's what Augmentations abilities you can look forward to seeing:

Dull Abilities

  • Lightweight: chance of increased knockback of 1-5 blocks when hit.  Can be added to swords & axes
  • Heavyweight: chance of decreased knockback of 1-5 blocks when hit. Can be added to swords & axes
  • Beheader: Beheading players after a kill, when they are killed the physical head item is dropped. Can be added to swords & axes
  • Celerity: Gain 1-3 levels of Haste effect. Can be added to pickaxes
  • Rumble: Chance of sending your opponent flying in the air while in PvP. Can be added to swords & axes
  • Freeze: - Chance to freeze your opponent for 1-5 seconds. Can be added to swords & axes

  • Mining Agility: Augments Mining speed. Can be added to pickaxes
  • Bomb Miner: Chance to gain 1-3 a Mine/Candy bomb while mining. Can be added to pickaxes
  • Guardian: Chance of minions spawning whilst fighting. Can be added to swords & axes

Sparkly Abilities

  • Karma: Chance for the enemy player to heal you for 1-5 hearts and take 1-3 hearts off of the enemy when hit. Can be added to chestplates

Updated Private Mines

You can now upgrade your Private Mine based on what size, quality and reset speed you want. Previously you were only able to upgrade all 3 features at once, but now you can customize your Private Mines better depending on what you require on your plot.

Now you can focus on the quality of ores you wish to mine, instead of having to increase the mine size as well, if you don't have a lot of room for a mine at your plot. Or if you have multiple people using your mine, you can focus on increasing the size and decreasing the reset time instead.

To access the upgrades menu, go to your Private Mine Management chest in the corner of your private mine.

As well as this, we have also rebalanced the sell prices to better fit the new economy and prestige mines. You can purchase your very own Plot Mine on our server store.

Prestige Mines

Players who prestige will now be able to access Prestige Mines that will have even better sell prices compared to all previous mines. Every 5 prestige levels, a new prestige mine will be unlocked, up until the new highest prestige level 25. Although the prestige cap has been increased, players will stop gaining sell booster rewards after prestige 15.

Prison & Skyblock Linking System Rework

On the Prison realm, you can earn prizes that are redeemable on the Skyblock realms by reaching certain milestones. Previously, you'd unlock prizes depending on what mine you reached, but we realized that this was easily abused as players would use alternate accounts and give them money to rank up to earn prizes.

As a result of this, we have reworked the system and you can now earn prizes for Skyblock by reaching certain block-breaking milestones. For example, you will win a prize when you have broken 50,000 blocks, then at 100,000 blocks etc. Players will also need to prestige in order to obtain the prizes above level 12.

HoaxPass

The Hoax Pass has been added to Prison Blaze, so now players can complete a wide variety of challenges to win rewards! The challenges vary from breaking blocks, refining Candies, winning duels, to planting seeds, dealing damage to bosses and purchasing enchantments!

When you complete the challenges, the rewards you receive are definitely worth your time. You can win keys, EXP, pouches, money and more!

Players who have purchased the Premium Hoax Pass from our server store will get 2 rewards per challenge completed compared to the Free Pass that everyone has access to. Grab yourself the Premium Hoax Pass from the server store here.

New Plots

Flat Plot

We have added a flat plot option that you can choose when creating a plot. This has been requested by players for a little while now, as it makes it easier to build and customize plots from scratch without having to remove large areas of custom plot builds to make way for their own.

SpongeBob Plot

As well as the new flat plot, we're introducing a new, fun SpongeBob themed plot! Fancy living in a pineapple under the sea? Then we've got you! You'll spawn in the center of the plot which happens to be in Squidward's house.

Additional Changes

  • Nerfed EXP from crates
  • Increased the stakes at the casino
  • We have increased the prices required to prestige to better fit this season's addition of Custom Ores and Ore Pickaxes. Prestige prices after P15 will be increased by 25%.
  • Prestige sell boosters will be lowered from 15% to 10% to reduce money gain and increase the time needed to prestige.
  • Updated /help menu to be easier to understand and navigate

  • Added a new Mining /Scoreboard with mining-focused values shown
  • Added a new ETA to rankup/prestige value in the mining /Scoreboard
  • Added a mine blocks category to /shop
  • Removed robots
  • Buffed crystals
  • New Freeworld challenges and rewards added to better fit the new economy and to give older players a new challenge

We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday 14th November at 1:00 PM EST for the Blaze Reset! Feel free to let us know what you think on our Discord server:
