Hello everyone, it's getting close to the end of the year and I'm sure we can all agree on that it's time for a reset. Even though GlacialRealms has only been open for a few months, we've already done and gone through so much. I've never seen a more interactive Community than GlacialRealms, I mean come on, just look at our Site Statistics. We have added in a butt load of Content, fixed countless bugs and have held multiple events.

Information Regarding To The Reset
We're going to be splitting the MCSL Advertisement with a good friend of mine as any place on the ad this month is going to be 3x the cost. Thanks to @Pysche we've gotten in contact with a relatively large YouTuber that'll also be working with us: https://www.youtube.com/user/ibxtoycat
The exact reset date will be November 30th at 5:00 PM Eastern. Live Countdown: http://itsalmo.st/#skyblock&factionsreset

Skyblock Highlights
  • Complete Shop Revamp / Balance (Gearing more Towards a Balanced Eco instead of one being more profitable)
  • Revamped Crates (Making them better but yet certain items more rare)
  • Limitations on the maximum amount of Hoppers, Spawners, etc... allowed per island (Will have a decent rate but those that like to abuse the crap out of it will be more encouraged to have other money making methods as well)
  • Additional free kits that are only for Members to help settle the imbalance when vsing Donor Kits
  • Merging both Skyblocks and removing Skyblock2 (We resolved all lag issues that resulted in our initial reasoning behind splitting)
  • Nerf the chances of ores along with ore prices
  • Lowering the maximum amount of players per Island
  • Increasing Island Sizes
  • Max Limit of how many Enchantments you can have per item
  • Add more things to use Experience on
  • Changing the rule regarding adding items to an Island, anything you contribute to an Island...
Welcome to probably one of our most awaited posts!

Let's start off with what is Icing?
Icing in short is the name we've given the plugin that deals with anything regarding Cosmetic related functions on the server, however we've decided to also throw the new Skilling System into it as it's mainly just a numbers game (in short). The Skilling System is Network Wide and is jam packed with loads of skills and abilities. There's currently 18 different skills to train with each Skill having it's own targeted abilities to level up and choose from.

How does it work:
You can type /sk or /skills to bring up the interface to view all of your current skills, however you will only be able to view skills you started progressing in. If you've never killed anything before you probably won't see anything to do with Combat. Every 1,024 Experience earned will grant you 1 Shard. Shards are useful for unlocking and leveling up Abilities. You can also type /x stfu to turn off the messages.Typing /x will also show you some text based information.

Current Skills:
  • Archer - Get Ready, Aim... AND Fire!
  • Axes - Get your Axes ready
  • Butcher - It's time to slaughter some Cows!
  • Combat - Only the finest Warriors can achieve this skill!
  • Construction - You'll need to be able to build better than a Wooden House to train this one!
  • Enchanting - Upgrade your favorite weapon the old fashion way, it's rewarding!
  • Excavation - I wonder if we'll find any gold today...
  • Farming - Automatic farms are a thing of the past.
  • Fishing - Nothing like some good old Fishing to pass the time...
  • Heavy armor - I feel... tired.
  • Light armor - I'm so fast!
  • Miner - Oh boy, Diamonds!
  • Smelter - I can't wait to make this new Sword!
  • Stealth - Shh, they can hear me.
  • Swords - I Can Swing My Diamond Sword Sword
  • Taming - My kitty is so cute.
  • Unarmed - I wish I had a...
Hello, Warriors!

Bringing you another quick update, straight from @IBG_Nova
He's been working hard to ensure everything was ready in time for the release.
This is an additional Pixelmon Server on top of his current Pixelmon v4.3.0.
You can get to the servers in one of two ways, use the compass to direct connect to one of his Pixelmon Servers and or use the Hub Selector to connect to the Pixelmon Hub

Here's a few changes since the v4.3.0 server:
  • Rebalanced Economy
  • Rebalanced Crates
  • Rebalanced Kits
  • More Balanced Store and less Pay2Win
  • Completely fresh map
