The Main Guide

Quickstart

  1. Use our MassiveCraft Medieval Texture Pack
    It’s great and very suitable for medieval fantasy.
  2. Decide on a set of traits for your character
    Are you Human? Elf? Dwarf? Define your unique strength and weakness using our custom plugin, MassiveTraits.
  3. Get a suitable medieval fantasy skin for that race
    A good skin improves the role playing experience for everyone.
  4. Read the rules
    Knowing the rules is a good idea even though they mostly are common sense.
  5. Join a faction on the server
    The gameplay is quite faction centric. You should really join one. It’s fun.
  6. Emerge into the RP universe and shape your destiny
    What is your profession? What is your characters goal in life?

Changed Game Mechanics

  • All armor types have the durability of diamond x3
    Leather, Iron, Gold and Diamond armor all have the same durability and that durability is three times as high as standard diamond armor durability. This way PVP battles last longer and becomes more exciting.
  • Players and mobs sometimes drop their head on death
    A Premium player has a 10% chance to decapitate a player, in which case that player’s head will be dropped (1% chance for mobs).
  • Ender Pearl usage has a 15 seconds cooldown
    You must wait 15 seconds between throwing another Ender Pearl.
  • Explosions are disabled.
    TNT and Creeper explosions will damage players and animals but not blocks.
  • Fire won’t spread
    This means you can safely craft a fireplace in your wooden house and that you don’t need to fear wildfires.
  • Compasses always point north
    In vanilla Minecraft the compasses points to the world spawn point or your home bed. Since our goal is survival realism we made the compass point north at all times.
  • Endermen won’t move blocks
    They will neither pick up nor place anything.
  • Some blocks are dropped instead of destroyed
    If you destroy a glowstone, bookshelf, dead bush or spiderweb on this server the block itself will drop as opposed to the default Minecraft behavior.

TeamSpeak Voice Chat

We use the latest version of TeamSpeak for voice chat on this server. Many players use this application for many purposes such as coordinating faction activities, meeting new friends and more! Voice makes a big difference when exploring new continents.
