This sounds like it would add a great deal of fun to the arena/mining world, would love to see some parts of this implemented on the server!Due to the realms ending up being afkers all over the place at the late game, I feel like there needs to be something that you are always working towards from the start to finish. As the mining realm is mainly only used at the early game, I feel like it can be improved for late game as well. Introducing the mining world shop or /mw shop.
This shop will consist of a totally new (non trade-able) currency, for example mw coins, mw points, mw credits, whatever you think. These will be gained depending on which ore you break in the mining world. From coal being the least points to emeralds being the most. The amounts could be something like:
Coal - 1
Redstone - 3
Iron - 5
Gold - 7
Lapis - 9
Diamonds - 12
Emeralds - 15
Using these points in the mw shop will gain you a large range of items such as:
Value blocks: Coal - Beacons
Spawners: Chickens - Points
Enchanted Picks (With the possibility of custom enchants and the only place to get them????)
(mw currency) Multiplier)
Then with the higher costing items being:
Perm creatures (and/or temp ones at a cheaper price)
Legendary kits Perm ( and/or one time use for cheaper)
TOP ITEM being a Legend rank (Very expensive)
SAGA NOT included to make sure that people with SAGA are separate to people that are just mining very hard.
Obviously this is a lot and you will be looting for some buycraft items within this also. This is why you will be able to add on the buycraft store mw currency, mc curreny boosters (2x, 3x, 30mins, 60mins, personal, global (giving you a percentage of what others mine within the time you purchased) etc).
Also with this you can have a permanent multiplier with each rank that you have, similar to the prison realms.
With this new grindy mw shop, it will also give them free to play players an incentive that if the play a lot and keep playing for a while they could get them selves a rank and special items. In addition to the p2w players able to buy multipliers from the store to boost there progress.
Any questions please as away.
