The Pit has been launched! We'll be opening it for 30 minutes at launch, then it will have to opened through buying access passes on our Buycraft. The access pass opens the pit for everybody for a limited time, and is cheaper when buying longer access. It will also broadcast in chat the name of the person who sponsored opening the pit.
The Pit is a PvE/PvP zone in spawn with many types of custom mobs. Kill the mobs for a chance to spawn a powerful boss, which drops Boss Souls and has a chance to drop other special items on death. Use Boss Souls to redeem rewards on /bshop. Legacy Donator Ranks are purchasable through this shop.
The main surface area of the pit is strictly PvE, meaning there is no PvP. There are three types of normal mobs here, and four different bosses can be spawned by killing these normal mobs. Farther back into the Pit is the drop down to the Depths. Here, PvP is enabled, and there are two types of normal mobs, and two very difficult bosses that will drop the most souls.
When you kill a boss in the pit, it will drop 1-4 (depending on the difficulty of the boss) Boss Souls on the ground. There's also a 75% chance that 1-2 extra souls will drop directly into your inventory. Each boss also has a special item that can drop (on a 2-6% chance). These exclusive items are unique to each boss and have powerful abilities.
We'd like to thank all the staff members who helped make the Pit possible, as well as everyone who tested it and gave us feedback. We will actively try to improve it, so please give us any feedback or suggestions you have. More mobs, bosses, and special drops will be added in the near future.
