As you may have noticed, scavenger hunts haven't been happening too often since the world reset last Monday. That's because the old format doesn't quite work with the new spawn anymore, so we've been hard at work figuring out a better and more enjoyable way for us to do them. After lots of brainstorming, here how scavenger hunts will now be going down:
- There are now TWO scavenger hunt sessions a day to cater to both UK and US players. The first of the day will happen at 7:30pm UK, and the second at 7:30pm US Central!
-Four chests now randomly drop in each session. Two of the four are armor/weapon chests, helping you gear up ready for PvP in Factions. The other two are potion/raiding item chests, giving you things that'll help you behind the scenes of raiding such as redstone, TNT, health potions and more!
-Instead of the chests being hidden around spawn, they are now RANDOMLY hidden at any of the four wilderness areas. North, South, East and West. All portals are accessible easily at the main spawn and the chests will be around the surrounding sub-spawns at each location within 32 BLOCK RADIUS. For example, one day, there may be 3 chests at east and 1 at west. These are completely random, so each day you'll have to hunt around all the spawns to get the best loot!
-As we now have many different biomes to work with each day, we are no longer digging up any dirt or trees to hide chests. All chests will now be placed hidden in plain sight, in trees, around corners etc...
This new routine will start TOMORROW (Thursday May 22nd 2014), so make sure to log on and start hunting for those chests to get some great bonuses on Factions EVERY DAY!
