  • With an update to 1.20.1 starting to show on the horizon, we will be resetting the Wastelands. Please be sure to recover/remove all items and blocks that you don't want to loose from the Wastelands, as anything left will be deleted upon reset. There is currently no timeframe as to when the update will be ready, but it could be within the next 1-2 months.
  • The End was opened on May 15th, 2022

    As you may have noticed, access to the End dimension in both the Wilderness and Wastelands is currently unavailable.

    There are 3 reasons for this:
    1. A bug exists that, once you enter, will not let a player leave the End.
    2. An event is planned where the End will be opened and the community will fight the first Ender Dragon as a group.
    3. How to handle the Dragon Egg has not been determined, but we have a few options:
      • Never introduce the Dragon Egg into the server's economy
        • PRO: Players will not fight and rivalries will not be formed over who has the Dragon Egg
        • CON: No one will be able to have a Dragon Egg, let alone complete all of the advancements.
      • Let a Player or Nation keep the Dragon Egg for themselves
        • PRO: The Dragon Egg is able to exist on the server
        • CON: This would make the holders of the egg a massive target
      • Give everyone a chance to get one Dragon Egg each
        • PRO: Everyone is able to obtain a Dragon Egg, and complete the "Next Generation" challenge
        • CON: Causes major, and possibly rapid, devaluation of the Dragon Egg
      • Make it so that the last player that hit the Ender Dragon before it dies has a chance at getting a Dragon Egg
        • PRO: Everyone is able to get a Dragon Egg if they work for it
        • CON: Causes devaluation of the Dragon Egg, but to a lesser extent than above

    The End dimensions WILL be opened some time in the future, specifically after Eternal Realms leaves Public Beta. When this will happen is currently not set in stone, and is to be determined as both in-game content and Forum content are developed and written.
