    Travel Advisory/Warnings(top)

    • Water is available on Island 4 and Island 8.
    • Giants spawn on Island 3.
    • Be careful when ascending the waterfall to island 8, players and pigmen can ambush you and knock you down.
    • If you need to log out for a while, make absolutely sure you log out on a full solid block. If you leave while standing on a slab or stair, you could die when you log back in.
    • Getting here will require lots of food, as it is located very far north amidst an area of uneven terrain.
    • All of the bridges have parkour. Do not come here if you aren't good at it.
    • Most islands spawn lots of zombies. You have the best chance of survival, if you run past all islands, ignoring zombies and quickly breaking loot chests.
    • The Floating Islands are beatable in leather armor, but only if you can think sharp and stay frosty. Remember, the strategy here is to avoid mobs, not to fight them.
    • Island 8 has the spire chests, there are 4 of them surrounding the Lore Block. The zombie pigman spawners were replaced by zombie spawners in the chest area, so although it is not as dangerous as it used to be, getting in and out of the spire bowl as fast as possible is highly suggested.
    • Island 8 has one zombie pigman spawner when coming up the waterfall, so get out of that area as fast as you can.
    • Having a good keyboard is recommended, as if you wobble jump or fail to sprint jump, then death is almost certain.
    • If you have a grapple, you can grapple up to the top of the big tree on Island 8, however 5 zombie pigman spawners await you.
    • The parkour itself is not really hard, just dangerous and long.
    • The amount of zombie pigman spawners has been greatly reduced, so most of the islands are easily lootable.
    • All of the potion chests are located in trees which require a couple of jumps to reach.
    • Zombies can very easily pull or push you into the void near island edges and ESPECIALLY on bridges.


    • For Christmas 2015, the majority of the terrain had been replaced with ice, snow and quartz.


    • There is a Lore Block under the sphere of the Spire.

      The Spire of Therum is a sealing stone of the Goddess of Earth, Therum.
      This spire has experienced significant damage on the protective later weakening the hold on the gods.
      This spire is rather fitting to represent Therum, a slow moving but extremely deadly hunk of earth wavering through the Floating Islands.
