~~~The Monsters that Stole Christmas!~~~ December 25th - January 2nd
Santa needs your help! Monsters have invaded the homes in Herocraft and have stolen the presents from under every tree! It is now up to the Heroes of Herocraft to step in and claim these presents back so the children of Herocraft can continue to have a great holiday season! Slay the monsters of Herocraft to recover Santa's presents! Mobs have a chance to drop a special item that looks like a chest*, called "Stolen Christmas Present". Collect these presents and Santa will visit you and give you a random present**! How to participate:
Collect "Stolen Christmas Present" from mobs (and some ores!)
Place the presents in a secure chest of your choice.
At the end of the event (Jan 2nd @ 11:59PM CST) or when you have finished participating, create a petition in front of that chest named "Santa, I found some stolen presents!"
On December 21th we will be introducing the next installment of Herocraft. Valorium: Survival RPG! We're bringing out "Back to the Basics" - which includes several mechanics returning to the old Herocraft methods to simplify gameplay, encourage more fluid activity and add enjoyment for everyone! There's a few key points to reflect upon, read them below.
New Map - Valorium:
This massive map will be introducing the unification of PVE and PVP to announce the release of Survival RPG. The north continent will be home to PVE players, the south will be home to PVP players. Contested regions will be around the middle and there will be a centralized marketplace accessible by either spawn. Later, there will be methods to openly flag yourself as PVP attackable even in PVP-OFF areas but that will be released in a future update.
Hand crafted fully generated map, built by hand over 5 months time. You'll have tons of fun exploring every corner of this enchanted landscape!
We've decided that we're shortening the gap between low level characters and high level characters. Level gain is now less than it was so the gap is shorter than before so combat will be more skill based and less grind/time based. Heroes may now select a specialization immediately upon entering the game.
After several weeks in development, it seems that there's hope for a Minecraft 1.8 release.
We have several plugins that will need to be modified to support this unreleased 1.8 server. We're currently in testing to see whats working and what is not working.
Also, "Winter is coming" back to the basics patch is still on track, so be ready for that on Dec 19th!
Greetings Heroes! @Admins@Moderators
We will be rolling out Townships 3.0 to the Minecraft PVP server (then later to PVE). All Township 2.0 regions will decay on Nov 7th. If you are unfamiliar with the abundant amount of changes to Townhips, please read hc.to/townships.
Heroes changes will also be coming in, these changes are aimed to change the scaling from level 1 to level 65 to decrease the gap between players and focus more on skill and gear planning. This is the first step to improving gameplay between time invested.
MythicMobs will be releasing in a very small form, we will be adding randomly spawned bosses to all servers. Each mob will have a chance to spawn a boss mob that may drop better loot, more exp and what have you. The level expansion for mobs for PVP and PVE will be disabled during this time as we live-test MythicMobs.
Last, but not least, we have made Backpacks work server wide - so Central and other servers will transfer items seamlessly (thanks @mung3r!)
Thanks to @Coders and everyone for helping with these changes and we always value and appreciate...
