SimpleSMP's Third Content Update - Exploration & PvP!
Welcome to SimpleSMP's third content update! This update comes with a big announcement - the end is officially open! Players will now be able to access the end, and all the features that come with it! On top of this, were bringing in a couple new features - and a handful of more balancing and bug fixes.

Release Date: Monday, July 27th, @ 5PM GMT

The End

Welcome to the end! It is finally open for everyone to enjoy, and that means all portals will soon be active and working. Along with this, there will be coordinates announced on our discord for the public portal on the update release, so make sure you join it!

The End on our server isn't exactly your typical end, and you will find some things that are quite different. First of all, everyone will find themselves facing off a dragon that is exponentially more powerful than typical, and truly packs a punch. This won't be an easy task, and people WILL have to work together to defeat it.

Once the dragon is defeated, the player with the most damage will be rewarded greatly. The dragon will also be on a respawn timer, so players can compete for the the most dragon slays on a leaderboard. You will also notice that once you get off the main island, PvP is always on, and the end may not look like how it typically does - this is because our end is custom generated. It has a slew of custom biomes, and with that also come with custom structures and loot. Make sure to explore every inch of the new islands, you never know what can be hiding!

Elite Mobs
Elite mobs are exactly what they sound like - powerful mobs with special powers and buffs that make it harder to fight. While this alone is a pretty fun thing to come with, we have a lot more to offer with this plugin!

Adventurers Guild
Welcome to the Adventurers Guild, this is where you can go to chat with NPC's to purchase ranks that unlock new special enchants and items, get quests, and sell / buy your special loot. You can access this world by doing /ag.

Level System
This offers its own rank system, which allows you to purchase levels via the coins that elite mobs drop. These levels allow you to get better loot, encounter stronger mobs (which give better loot), and unlock new items in the shop. There is also a prestige system, so you can level for quite a while!

Economy
Adventurers Guild has its own economy, Elite Coins. Elite Coins are dropped from Elite Mobs when they are killed, the amount depends on chance - and also the strength of the mob and level you are. There is no way to transfer the current economy to Elite Coins, or vice versa.

Dungeons & Bosses
In the future, you will start to come across ruins and areas that have high tiered mobs. These will contain special loot, and they will respawn on a certain time period. Each of these will be a custom experience, some absolutely requiring multiple people.

Events
There will be custom events that happen across the world now, and not only that - but stronger elite mobs also come with it.

New Enchantments
New exclusive custom enchantments can be found via the adventurers guild store and elite mob drops, so make sure to check them out!

New Shops
As you level up, you will unlock more and more things in the advetnurers guild shop to buy. These items, when combined can ultimately build you tools that are even stronger than netherrite.

There will be a more detailed thread / documentation on how this all works soon :)

PvP Zones
From now on, there will be POI added to the map like dungeons, mini-dungeons, and various other misc buildings you can find exploring. In these areas, PvP will always be on - and they will also typically contain either elite mobs, special loot, or just a helluva lot of mobs. These areas will typically have their own announcement thread when made, and the coordinates will be given out. Please keep in mind that these areas are just like other safe / unsafe areas, so camping and other things are prohibited.

PvP Arena / Duels
We are introducing a PvP arena! You will be able to access it by using /warp pvp once its open, and it contains a multitude of features! There are multiple types of gamemodes to PvP in, along with kits, and the winner gets rewards! The arena resets after every match, and there will also be an included leaderboard with statistics! Players can also place their own bets, including money or items.

If no one is on, you can still play with bots! You can choose between "human" players, or a variety of mobs.

Balancing
Miner no longer loses money mining Netherrack
Fisher job was balanced per new fishing plugin
End Items have been removed due to the end being accessible now.

Bug Fixes
Treasure Chests should no longer crash the server.
Minions should work.
General Stability fixes.​

So elite coins can't be exchanged between players?
Otherwise they could be sold by $1 - $1000 each depending on their rarity.
Emeralds aren't directly transferable to main economy too, but can be traded (1.14 villager trading system :D)

By the way I built 70x70 darkroom powered by beacon, that has all upgrades and powers.
I think I could bring that beacon along with top layer for nice 10 block radius safeish space for enderdragon fight.
I just need some time to make good bow - already has good crossbow and trident :p

Also do we drop stuff when defeated in that pvp arena?

By the way how does hunter job interact with elite mobs? Do we get more money and xp per kill?

They could, but players will still need to generate said coins to begin with. I'm just stressing there is no official way of transferring between the two currencies, players will have to grind for their initial elite coins.

No, instead players are able to bet items and money AFAIK.

By the way how does hunter job interact with elite mobs? Do we get more money and xp per kill?
Nope, they are separate plugins - and all EliteMobs does is add attributes and NBT data to mobs AFAIK, they are still "normal" mobs by code terms, so there would be no possible way for the hunter job to even read if a mob is elite or not, what level it is, etc.

How frequent are those elite mobs?
Do these spawn naturally in caves too?
