So I am starting a series im going to call Monday Madness because going forward all our new releases will occur on Mondays, so you all know when to look on the forums to see what may (or may not) be new that week. We have lots of new plans for the summer so stay tuned!
First off, dont forget the Olympics start Saturday June 3 with our opening ceremonies. So be sure and be here! We will be starting things off with some fireworks and an awesome drop party. Check out the Olympics post for more details.
So what is new this week?? MythicDrops! This will be added late Monday.
With mythic drops you will find some new items that will currently only drop from mobs that naturally spawn in the resource world. Mobs from spawners will not drop mythic items.
Some mobs will be seen as carrying items, but others (like creepers, spiders, endermen, etc) will not show visible signs of carrying items. Once you defeat the mob it will drop its item and you can pick it up.
Some tools and weapons will be identified:
While others will remain mysterious:
You can also find books. There are three main types of books that you can find: Identity Tomes (used to identify unidentified items as above), Soul Books for Armor and Soul Books for Tools.
This is a Soul Book for Armor ^^
This is a Soul Book for Tools ^^
The method for using any of these books is all the same, so I will walk you through how to identify an item.
Place both items in your tool bar. Then while holding the book, right click and you should see the following message:
Then switch the item you want to identify to your hand and right click again. You should then see this message:
You might notice that this tool has empty Soul slots. This is where the Soul Books come into play! You can add any Soul Book (with the Tool label) to any tool with an open (Soul) slot. To add a Soul Book, you use the same method as you used to identify the Unidentified item. After adding the Soul book it will show up in the item lore:
These items can be combined on anvils to a certain extent, however not all enchantments or souls may combine, so be aware of that when you are experimenting with different combinations. If you have any questions or comments, please comment below.
