    Greetings Prisoners!

    The devs and the staff team have been working night and day to make this weekends update possible. Without blabbering on here's what you have to look forward to upon your planets reboot today:
    • Tiered Zones
    • Warzone Bandits
    • Warzone Bandit Bosses
    Tiered Zones
    As mentioned in our last post on Saturday today we are introducing a big change to the Prisons world! The overworld will now be split up into tiered zones! These zones will limit the tier of gear and enchants you can use in certain parts of the world! These zones will work similar to how Outposts work except you will not be blocked from entering a zone that has a lower limitation on gear and enchants than what you are currently using! The only difference will be is that your gear and enchants will be limited to that of the zone you are in!​

    Here are the tiers and the limitations in them:
    Leather Area
    Leather Armor & Stone Weaponry
    Armor Enchants restricted to Level 11
    Weapon Enchants restricted to Level 16

    Gold Area
    Gold Armor & Gold Weaponry
    Armor Enchants restricted to Level 21
    Weapon Enchants restricted to Level 21

    Iron Area
    Iron Armor & Iron Weaponry
    Armor Enchants restricted to Level 31
    Weapon Enchants restricted to Level 31

    Diamond Area
    Diamond Armor & Diamond Weaponry
    Armor Enchants restricted to Level 41
    Weapon Enchants restricted to Level 41​

    How do I know what enchants will work on my gear?
    So say for example you were wearing a Diamond chestplate and using an Iron sword and walked into the Leather Tiered zone your armor and weapons would still work but they will only be as effective as Leather armor/weapons. If you had more enchants on your armor/weapons that what is allowed in that zone then only your highest tiered enchants up to the limit for that area would work.​

    Let’s take this armor piece here for an example:
    [​IMG]
    When you walk into a new zone you will be greeted with a chat message that will show you all your armor and weaponry that is affected by the zone change!
    [​IMG]
    The server will always take the highest tier enchants into consideration first and the enchants are taken from the top of your armor/weapon piece downwards (Note that enchants are now organised on your gear by rarity and alphabetically not in the order of which you place them on your gear)​

    Displaying the zone boundaries
    We understand how bad it would be if you ended up strolling into another tiers zone without noticing as this could put you at quite a big disadvantage and at risk of losing your coveted god set. We have put a lot of thought into how to make sure you guys know when you are about to enter another tiers zone.​

    When you walk up to a new zone you will see a floating sword and chestplate in front of you that are not only reflective of the zone you are about to walk into but will also state above them what zone it is! Do not worry these will show up in front of you from roughly a chunk away so you will have plenty of pre-warning to the zone change before you walk into it!​

    Buffed meteorite spawn rates
    With the higher tiered zones comes an inherited risk! As such we have implemented a buff to the spawn rates for meteorites in the higher tier zones! They are as such:​

    Leather: 1.0x Spawn Rate
    Gold: 1.2x Spawn Rate
    Iron: 1.4x Spawn Rate
    Diamond: 1.8x Spawn Rate​

    We have also given you a buff with natural spawned gkits! When mining them in higher tiered zones you will have an increased chance to get the perm beacon from them!​

    Warzone Bandits
    Bandits are roaming NPCs that spawn in the overworld and vary based on what zone they spawn in. For example: a bandit that spawns in the leather zone will be a Leather Bandit. Do not worry miners! These bandits are not fans of the mines and will not wander near them!​

    Depending on what type of bandit it is the health and damage will vary based on their tier. A diamond bandit will have more health and do more damage than a leather bandit for example. With higher tier bandits being harder to kill they will also drop scaled rewards based on their tier (Diamond being the highest)​

    On average 3 - 5 bandits will spawn in the overworld every few minutes! You will find yourself interacting with them on a daily basis! Bandits will automatically agro on you if your mining level is within the same tier that they are but do not worry as these guys do not pack a punch when on their own but killing them will reward you a nice amount of cash and energy as well as a chance to grab yourselves some Mystery Enchant books and pages! If your mining level is above or below the tier of that bandit then they will only agro on you if you attack them!​

    Warzone Bandits Bosses
    Bandit Bosses have the chance to spawn upon defeating a bandit. They are the ringleader of the bandit operation and aren't happy with you taking out their henchmen!

    Bandit Bosses have increased damage buffs from regular Bandits but also drop the craziest loot ever seen on prisons!

    Bandit Bosses will always drop money and energy but also have a chance to drop the following:
    Shards
    Contrabands
    Gkit Flares
    Shard Satchels
    Mystery Cosmic Crates
    Heroic Cosmic Crates
    Heroic Rank Crystal
