We currently have an exclusive 25% sale on our store, this sale is active on ALL packages for the first time ever: shop.thearchon.net Now, let's get into the information that we're all here for.. The features of The Phantom Dimension. We have based this new season of Factions around the grinding aspect of Minecraft & Factions. With that, here is a breif lowdown on the features, it will include already released updates: - Brand new Custom Enchantments system - Unique way to upgrade Book tiers - The Levelizer - Conquest (Access is bought through ingame money) - Castle (Access is bought through ingame money) - Mob Spawner Levelling System - Player Levelling System for rewards - Brand new Monthly Crate - Archon Mines - MineSweeper in Minecraft (Access is bought through ingame money) - Coinflip (Access is bought through ingame money) - ShopGUI & much more! Before we get into the detailed features, both Napkin and I have released information posts which you can read here: Base / Cannon information: https://www.thearchon.net/community/threads/phantom-base-rules-cannon-rules.2355/ Faction / Misc Information: https://www.thearchon.net/community/threads/phantom-faction-information-misc-information.2372/ Spoiler: Custom Enchantments We first introduced Custom Enchantments just over a year ago here on TheArchon and it was a sensational hit, everybody loved it. We decided that we wanted to continue the legacy of the Custom Enchantments, but introducing more enchantments than you can possibly remember! We have implemented over 50+ custom enchantments, with that we have also introduced some of the legendary enchantments from the past! Some of those include: Blast, Scoot, Grind, Leaps & many, many more. You will be able to view every enchantment ingame via the GUI and a brief description of what they do. We also wanted to change up the way you upgrade your enchantments so we came up with the Levelizer. The Levelizer can be accessed from the /ce GUI. You will then shift-click the book you are looking to upgrade and it will prompt you with a price. You will be upgrading the books using INGAME MONEY. Each rank will have a different chance of the book being a successful upgrade. Chances are as stated: Default - 15% chance $20 - $100 - 22% chance $175-$600 - 30% chance The costs of each tier is as follows: Tier I Upgrade (per/attempt): $75,000 Tier II Upgrade (per/attempt): $150,000 Tier III Upgrade (per/attempt): $275,000 Tier IV Upgrade (per/attempt): $500,000 * Subject to change prior to release If your upgrade fails, the item wont be deleted or removed. You will purchase Custom Enchantments via the GUI in which you can access by typing: /ce Spoiler: Player Levelling System When we were discussing how we wanted players to grind and gain rewards for doing that we came up with the idea of a levelling system similar to the Spawner system, but rather than being able to place spawners, you gain rewards throughout the levels. When playing, you simply type one of the following commands: /lvl /lvls /level /levels And it will open a GUI that looks like this: * When the book is glowing, that mean the level is completed All players will start at Level 1. You are not guaranteed a reward every level you purchase, the rewards are spread-out throughout the levels. There will be 150 Levels in total, but only releasing with 45. You are NOT able to purchase Level 35 if you're level 31. You must purchase each rank individually. Some ranks will not give you anything, you are able to view this via the lore as such: But then there are levels which include some awesome rewards: Rewards include: Ranks ($20 & 50) Ability to /fly Crate keys Spawners (lots of them) Trench Pickaxes Harvest Hoes Access to certain perks (Coinflip, Warp PvP, ArchonMines & more) Hoppers Enchanted Items Exclusive Items & much much more Spoiler: Conquest Conquest is an extremely known gamemode within the HCF community. It is essentially multiple koths at the same time in the same world using a points system. Conquest is a 3-zone map. The map contains three separate capture points. Your Faction has to hold as many as the capture points for aslong as they can, the longer they hold the Conquest points, the more points the Faction gains. Your Faction will gain Conquest points every couple of seconds. The win Conquest - The first Faction that achieves 200 points or the Faction with the most points after the timer is up will win. There is only one way in the Conquest map and that is by purchasing access via the Levelling system and then you'll have access to the command "/warp conquest". You are NOT able to teleport anybody into the Conquest world. The only way to leave the Conquest world is by dying or leaving via the command "/spawn". Once you have used the Conquest warp, it will have a 25 minute cooldown so that you are unable to teleport home and constantly return. Spoiler: Castle More information released at a later date, Castle will be released once we've finished some issues with it. Within the first two weeks of Phantom release.
