Alright, so basically minions are little helpers on our skyblock server. They are purchasable on skyblock and here is a little guide to them 😃
Q: How do I buy a minion?
A: Join the skyblock server and then run /minion store or /minions store. More aliases should be coming soon but that's what there is so far.
Q: Why did my minion stop working?
A: Your minion needs to be placed on specific things or around specific things to run. More information on that will be mentioned later in this guide. Your minion could have also run out of health (very common), you can feed it by clicking on it with some food and it will heal the minion.
Q: Does my minion stop when I go offline?
A: Your minion does stop when you log off, however, it will start up again once you log back on.
Q: My minion is doing stuff but I'm not getting any resources or anything. Why?
A: Put a chest behind your minion (it can be anywhere on your island but behind the minion would be my suggestion) (double chest preferably) then click on your minion, press the hopper in the corner titled 'Attach Chest' then right-click the chest to attach it, to remove the chest you can open up the minion GUI by clicking the minion then pressing it again
Q: What is a minion level-up?
A: A minion level up is where your minion becomes faster and such. Your minion will do things for you however it won't do them super fast to start. The more you level it up the faster it goes along with other special perks (like the miner minion will automatically smelt ores)
Q: I want to change how my minion looks, how do I do this?
A: Click your minion then press Rename to rename it then type its new name in chat (typing cancel will cancel the renaming), To change the minions skin (its head) you can click the minion and then the head in the corner, then click your skin of choice (these will be receiving updates soon!)
Here is a quick and simple way to set up your first minion!
To set up your minion open the minion shop (/minions store) and then purchase your minion (a good first one is the mining minion!), now this part will be mainly the mining minion. Other minions will be added below or sometime in the future. Create yourself a generator (like in the image attached)
then place your minion in front of where the cobblestone/ores should generate and your minion will start mining at it! Ores will be randomly generated as well due to the Ore Generation plugin we have on skyblock. Make sure to attach your chest and stuff (how-to is in the FAQ above!) and you can sell the ores whenever, and this is how you start your skyblock minion quest.
To set up your minion open the minion shop (/minions store) and then purchase your minion, Now place this minion down on just a grass flat-land, make sure you give it enough room. After placing the minion it will hoe the ground around it that it will farm but you should mine the block under the minion and place a water bucket there so that your land remains good for farming! Then plant seeds in all the hoe'd land, once they start growing your minion will start farming them. You can see the image below for reference
Make sure to attach your chest and stuff (how-to is in the FAQ above! [For this minion its best to place the chest away from the minion for the sake of your crops!]) and you can sell the harvested crops whenever. This minion is a pretty large sum of money but it should make you a generous bit, however, going for the mining minion as your first is recommended!
To set up your minion open the minion shop (/minions store) and then purchase your minion, Now place this minion down, make sure you give it enough room. This minion will feed all the other minions in a 3x3x3 radius (3 wide, 3 long, 3 high). After placing the minion it will start feeding your other minions for you! All you have to do it be online. Here is an image of what my minion setup for this looks like
You dont even have to link a chest or anything. This is by far the simplest minion but I would recommend it being the 3rd minion you get. This minion does require AFKing for it to do super well so make yourself an AFK pool and watch the money come in. You're doing great <3
More coming soon.
