Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is doing well and has been enjoying the server lately! The past couple of weeks have been crazy and we're very excited about the new players that are joining the server. That being said, we've fixed the majority of important issues and are now slowly going to start rolling out content updates. This will be a weekly/bi-weekly thing and will cover new content for all of our servers.

Today I'd like to announce the first of such updates, and that is the addition of Minions on our Skyblock Server.

This post should learn you all about them, and we'll answer some of your questions below.

What are Minions?
Minions are tiny little creatures which are programmed to lend you an extra hand whilst you are working on your island. They can be spawned to complete a variety of different tasks for you, from slaying mobs to mining ores, collecting items, and even selling them. It's a super useful utility to make your island more profitable and gain an edge on the island top. Minions can also be upgraded to a variety of different levels to improve their skill.


How do I obtain a Minion?
Obtaining a Minion can be done by purchasing one from our store over at store.pixelpunchers.net. Minions sell based on the task that they perform, so be sure to select one that is the most useful for your island. The following Minions are currently available:
  • Miner Minion: Automatically mines stones/ores on your island
  • Slayer Minion: Automatically attacks mobs on your island
  • Collector Minion: Automatically collects drops on your island
  • Healer Minion: Automatically heal other minions on your island
  • Lumberjack Minion: Automatically chop wood on your island
  • Farmer Minion: Automatically farm crops on your island
  • Fisher Minion: Automatically catch fish on your island
  • Seller Minion: Automatically sell items on your island

How do I use a Minion?
After you have obtained a Minion, you will receive a spawn egg in your inventory. This egg is used to spawn the minion and can be activated by right clicking. The Minion will then place itself at the position that you have clicked and is ready for use immediately. There are however a variety of different settings that you can change in the Minion menu, which you can call up by right clicking.

How do Minion upgrades work?
Each Minion has a variety of different levels, which can be upgraded to using in-game cash. Minions start off level 1, and sometimes can go up to 5 levels, which all have their own specific advantages. To check out the variety of different upgrades, simply use /minions upgrades. If you are looking to apply an upgrade, you can do so from the Minion Menu.

What does a Healer Minion do?
Each Minion has health, to ensure that they do not become too overpowered. Each time the minion performs an action, it loses a little bit of health which you can keep track of using the Minion Menu. Minions can be healed by right clicking them with food, however you can also have a Healer Minion do the hard labour for you and automatically heal nearby Minions. This option is available the store.

How do Minions collect items?
When Minions are performing tasks, such as mining ores, you may wonder where their items are going. This is something that you can setup by connecting your Minion to a nearby Chest. Doing so will automatically transport all of your items! Linking a chest is done in the Minion Menu.

What are the limits of placing Minions on my island?
In order to keep things fair and square, each player may place up to 2 Minions by default on the server. This limit can be upgraded to different levels using upgrade packages on our store. However, regardless of what limit you have, the maximum amount of Minions that can be placed in one chunk is always 3.

So that's a quick explanation on how these brand-new Minions work! We hope you guys will enjoy this feature, and be sure to keep an eye out on the website as we will be releasing more updates over the coming weeks. And also, do not forget to take advantage of the weekend sale that we are currently running. Up until Monday afternoon, all of our items are priced at 35% OFF by using code WEEKEND on the store, this also works for these newly released Minions!

Thanks for playing guys!
- Jesse
