      • The first Headhunt is now live on the map!
      • Extra challenges and mini-games can be found at some spooky locations
      • Treat Chests will begin following the announced schedule

    • Gameplay Changes
      • Increased view distance: 6 -> 10

    As of late we’ve discussed how a lot of our Dev power is being allocated towards work in the background that may not be something you can tangibly interact with in game. As a result, we’re dedicating lots of time towards making other things (such as gearing) more enjoyable. Included in that effort are some new builds! As a team we’re looking to fill in more of the map where spaces are empty, revamp areas that are too bland or too similar to others, and fix outdated areas as well. We hope you enjoy what we put out alongside Spookfest, and you should look forward to some of these builds sticking around after the holiday!

    Many of the above balance changes were looked at to make looting more enjoyable. Specifically, we’d like to cut down on the amount of time players spend tipping chests, and encourage diversity amongst various locations, to allow multiple gear routes to be viable. You’ll see more follow-up changes to the Spires, in the hopes that visiting them is worthwhile, and brings unique incentive to visit those locations and spend time at them.
    Additionally, food_rares and pot_rares have both been buffed after feedback from the community. We’d like these chests, being some of the rarest in the game, to be reliably good for those opening them, and for them to be more valuable than their more common varieties. Many of these are locked behind buttons or difficult locations, and we want the reward for getting to them to be more pronounced. We’ll be keeping a close eye on these to ensure they aren’t too strong or making other options less viable.
    As for the dungeon changes, these were changes that took a long time and we’re pretty proud of them. The loot tables won’t be publicly announced until a later date so you guys can go experience them first hand. Feedback is always welcome and know that the tables are never final. We’re looking to overhaul the Zerbia loot at the end of Spookfest and add onto the elite loot tables as well.

    06/30/2021 ( 4.1.1 )
    • Pot_common: We felt that Pot_common chests were giving out too many drink Is. We decided to change these a little bit and make Splash and Drink IIs more common. The feeling of opening one of the common chests and getting a Splash II is amazing so getting that feeling just a little more often is ok with us.
      • Splash Potion of Healing II: 1% >>> 2%
      • Drink Potion of Healing II: 20% >>> 25%
    • Pot_rare: Considering there are more mil_mythic chests than pot_rare chests around the map, we thought it’d be good to make Speed Potions more common. We also went ahead and buffed the remainder of the chest because most pot rares are found in button rooms. If you use a button that far up north you should be rewarded a little more generously.
      • Added Lingering Potion of Healing I
      • Potion of Healing II: 76% >>> 58%
      • Splash Potion of Healing II: 8% >>> 10%
      • Lingering Potion of Healing I: 0% >>> 14%
      • Lingering Potion of Healing II: 8% >>> 7%
      • Speed II Potion: 1% >>> 4%
    • Mil_mythic: In most places where there are mythics, there are a lot of them. The Speed Potion reduction makes the table feel a little better and gives more of a reason to go to pot_rare chests.
      • Speed II Potion 4%: >>> 2%
      • Weak Grapple (3 Uses): 6% >>> 7%
      • Iron Sword (Smite II): 5% >>> 6%
    • Ghost Ship: Ghost Ship has been one of the most dominating locations since its rework. We reworked how the ship works to make it better for looting. Currently, if you go there and gear you get an entire inventory of good consumable items before you get full iron. We changed it so that you get iron first then consumables second. We want to keep Ghost Ship good, please remember that.
      • Iron Armor (each piece): 3% >>> 4%
      • Added Smite III Iron Sword: (3%)
      • Added Smite III Knockback I Iron Sword: (2%)
      • Added 4 uses weak grapple: (2%)
      • Added Pristine Chain Armor
      • Removed cobweb, button, glowstone, fire grenade, and fire resistance potion Speed Potion: 3% >>> 1%

      • Fixed a bug where generated instances would not have the correct PvE/PvP designation

    • Tool and Civilian Chests A quick note about tool and civilian chests. We redid part of the tables and reworked some percentages. Because the tables were never public we’re going to release the new tables publicly on the Wiki. Civilian chests are currently live on the wiki and tool chests will be added soon.

    • Adjusted Entity View Distance to match the 6 chunk render distance. It is now approximately 96 blocks.

    • Player Head drops have been changed slightly. They now keep track of the player’s killer, if that killer was another player.
    • Nearly all the giant trees around the map have received rebuilds.
    • The Easter Egg Hunt is complete. All Eggs have been removed. Thank you for participating in the first automated head hunt. In the future, headhunts will be easier to set up, will reward for places(1st-Xth) and give more diverse loot and XP.

      • Added two unique consumables to the loot room. These are Zerbia exclusive items.
    04/16/2021
    • Spring has sprung in a brand new MineZ Lobby courtesy of _frostie!
    04/14/2021 ( 3.10.0)
    • The MineZ Instances Overhaul is live!
      • All dungeon instances are now offloaded to different "Instance" servers. These servers will act as load balancers for the more technical dungeons that impact server performance.
      • When entering a dungeon, players will be transitioned to an instance server after a short delay.
      • Dying in a dungeon will still act as normal. You will be returned to spawn.
      • Leaving a dungeon will still act as normal. You will be placed outside of the dungeon entrance.
      • An instance server will attempt to return you back to your originating server when completing or leaving the dungeon you were in. If this connection cannot be made, you will be returned to the Shotbow Lobby where you can safely log back into MineZ.
      • Multiple instances of the same dungeon can now exist.
    • Party Information
      • A newly created instance will be unlocked for any players to join for one minute. Once this timer elapses, a new instance of the same dungeon will be loaded when entering.
      • Players in a party (/party create) will always be sent to the same dungeon instance to join their team, with no regards to the previously mentioned lockout timer.
      • If at any point, a party member of yours joins your instance with a PVP tag, the instance will become unlocked, so any friend or foe may follow you into the same instance for one minute. This mechanic exists to circumvent using dungeon instances to escape a PVP encounter.
    • Continued Work
      • There are still some extra nice-to-have features you will see added to this new environment over the coming weeks and months. If something doesn't look quite right, or you think a feature is missing, please feel free to let us know.
    04/07/2021 ( 3.9.2 )

    • MineZ: Spring Cleaning Update Thread
    • Base sword damage has been buffed and critical hits now do 30% bonus damage instead of 50%:
      • Critical hits often did too much damage (2+ hearts), especially when a player isn’t wearing a full iron. This change will ensure there’s no more unexpected death caused by critical hits while keeping the overall damage high enough to the point where you can quickdrop players.
    • Heal Bow Changes:
      • Heals 3 hearts.
      • Consumes 2 arrows and 2 durability.
      • The shooter becomes afflicted with weakness 1 for 5 seconds when successfully hitting a player.

    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where Abandoned Farm’s zone would stop working.

    03/31/2021 ( 3.8.3 )
    03/21/2021 ( 3.8.2 )
    • Reworked the decision tree for zombie spawns. This is the process that chooses whether a zombie, villager zombie, pigman, Revenant or Forsaken is chosen. This new decision process takes weights into account, favoring zombies first. This should cut down on boss spawns that have been plaguing fights. We are currently looking into creating areas where bosses spawn more frequently, similar to the other unique zombies. Stay tuned.
    • Reduced zombie speed across the map. All zombies are now consistently one speed. This makes it possible to outrun hordes again. This also shortens zombies long arms, meaning players with higher ping will have a better chance at hitting zombies before they hit you.
    • Removed the maze from Grimdale's Thieves' Guild.
    • Replaced Axis Mundi's in-world exit with a zone teleport system to stop ILLEGAL access.
    • Added a hole in Byesford's west wall.
    • Increased the interval between mob spawns. As mentioned in 3.8.1 the team is working to retrofit the spawning algorithm and is carefully adjusting the new spawn system to accommodate all players.
    • Added a check to make sure that a Shiver has lost health before using the ranged attack.
    • Increased the radius of what the mob spawning algorithm considers to be a group to 40 blocks, reducing overall spawns for large groups which are spread out in an area (like Crowmure).
    • The Ghost Ship has set sail once again!
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where chests were spawning one fewer item than their max. Places like Agni Ignis which have routinely been spawning one item should now feel much better.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue within Devil's Respite. Magma blocks were boiling away water, creating a near impossible drop.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue with iron ingots and blocks overflowing disabilities.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where drinking Manzana Cider after eating a golden apple doesn't apply absorption hearts.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue with the Wind Spire instance causing inventory rollback.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue where zombies could spawn right on top of a player in groups. Zombies will now spawn at least ten blocks away.
    • The team is hard at work on multiple large updates. Recently a PTR was launched to test the new instance system, which should greatly improve server performance when it is rolled to live. We gathered a great amount of data on it and are currently putting the finishing touches on this system.
    03/03/2021 ( 3.8.1 )
    • Reduced Chance for Revenants, Forsaken and Husks.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed Iron Ingot Crafting Issues
    • Fixed an issue with zombies spawning on Snow.
    • Increased interval between mob spawns.
    • Slightly Lowered the amount of cows that can spawn at a farm.
    With the new spawning system, small adjustments will be made over the next few rollouts. We're analyzing how it is working in relation to group sizes and adjusting accordingly.

    03/02/2021 ( 3.8.0 )
    • Optimized tips for server performance.
    • Optimized chest spawning, increasing server performance.
    • Changed reboot cycles from every 12 hours to every 7 (this does not include the hour warning).
    • Reworked zombie and animal spawning:
      • Increased the time between zombies spawning.
      • Lowered the base limit of zombies that can spawn per group.
      • Zombies will now spawn by groups of players instead of per players. A group is defined as any players within 30 blocks of each other. This dynamically grows, meaning if player A and B are 20 blocks apart but player C is 15 blocks away from B (meaning further then 30 blocks away from player A), the group will grow. This will have a big impact on group fights, meaning that each player is not spawning mobs, but the groups are. There is a depreciating amount of zombies that will spawn, which is dependent on the group size. As a rough example, with the old spawn algorithm the maximum amount of zombies was equal to 3 * every player. It is now much less than that.
      • (BUGFIX) Fixed several errors with locational checks. Spawns are now more accurate, meaning that the chances of a zombie spawning are higher.
      • Villager Zombie Changes:
        • Spawn chances have been reduced.
        • Movement speed is now 10% slower.
        • Max item drop reduced to 2.

    • Strength and weakness potion effects now work correctly.
      • Strength increases damage by 10% per level and weakness decreases damage by 10% per level.
    • Overkill now uses weakness potion effects instead of static damage reduction after using the active ability.
    • (BUGFIX) Sugar now overrides any speed I potion effect. For example, consuming sugar after drinking Manzana Cider will no longer cancel out sugar’s speed II effect.
    • Increased Hunger effect for Pluvia’s Storm and Pluvia’s Rain. They will do a more noticeable hunger debuff to players.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed a bug where Earth Shaker’s ability launched players on PvE.
    • Added a glowing effect for Giant and Golem drops.
    • Messages related to thirst, bandaging and milk have been converted to use the action bar.
    • Players drawing aggro outside of wave rooms in Anemos Sanctum and Frostbain Catacombs have been tweaked. Zombies must have line of sight in these dungeons (only) to aggro.
    • Replaced slime blocks in Devil's Respite with half water.
    • Shiver Changes:
      • Shivers now only drop one item (either 3x snowballs or Frostwalker Boots)
      • Max health was increased.
      • Will now use their ranged attack more often.
    • Frostwalker Changes:
      • Now drop at lower durabilities from Shivers.
      • Effect duration reduced by 5 seconds (10 seconds total now).
      • Added the ability to repair Frostwalker Boots with Iron Ingots.
    02/21/2021 ( 3.7.19 )
    • Added Shivers.

      • Will spawn less frequently in the wild.

      • Cows do not spawn south of the PVE line.
      • (BUGFIX) Leather drops will now properly stack with other leather.
      • (BUGFIX) Cows will now no longer rarely crash servers when getting aggressive.
    • Expanded Zombies:
      • Designated towns and notable locations will now begin to spawn villager zombies which drop loot!
      • Villager zombies come in a wide variety of flavors, and they each have their own unique loot drops.
      • This addition should provide players with the ability to gather loot from somewhere else besides chests.
    • Carmi Sewers Changes:
      • The dungeon is now more linear, with it being easier to follow where to go.
      • Lily pads have been added throughout the dungeon.
    • Krubera Vault Changes:
      • The Giant wave room has been revamped. It now no longer has zombie spawners, and instead will spawn a Rampaging Golem in its place.
      • The Rampaging Golem will drop loot!

      • You can now cook raw food!
      • Currently, you can cook Raw Beef and Raw Fish & Salmon by throwing them into a fire!

    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue where disabling the Date in the sidebar would display an empty line.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an issue where players could craft multiple bags and carry them.
    • (BUGFIX) Fixed an exploit where players could spawn any boss or creature into the game with an admin command. We know you found this.
    • The Ghost Ship has set sail once again!
    01/31/2021 ( 3.7.18 )
    • Moved a pigman spawner in Paluster Shrine further away from the door past the Root Room and before the Ice Chamber
    • Slightly increased bow damage to players: Bows are currently out of the combat meta and barely used. This change will make bows more viable to use in fights while not making them dominate PvP.
    • Removed snow layers from Jacsebalon’s head in Crymoore Pond to prevent anti-cheat rubber-banding
    • Fixed a bug where cows could crash the server
    • Fixed a bug where pigman explosion did no damage to players
