With a new month comes a new challenge! Due to the large amount of new players this month, I'm keeping things to the basics with a fairly straightforward UHC map. This time, a lovely oceanic island in a warm climate is your setting.
For those of you not familiar with our local flavor of UHC, the challenge comes in a special world with its own inventory, accessible straight from the lobby. The difficulty is set to hard and PvP is enabled, so you need to stay on your toes! You can explore as you want, aim to survive, or reach out to complete the four targets listed below:
- Crafting a bookshelf
- Crafting an enchantment table
- Access the Nether
- Pick up a blaze rod
Completing each task before the end of the month will earn you 5 Merit Points; more on points here. The access is opened to everyone, including visitors, but only players that register before the end of the month will be awarded points. It's important to note that dying knocks you off the world for an entire week, and you'll only be able to rejoin once that's over, so survival should be your top priority at all times.
On the science front, more work has been done by Sora to gradually bring things back online in this post-1.14 universe. At this point, the Dragon Priests, the Hunters Lodge, Requiem, Nyx and the Overlook hotel are all back in working order, and the first two have received new additions making them worth revisiting. The monthly raid boss at the Lodge is the Ancient Pharaoh still, to make up for lost time last month.
The Lost Woods are next on the list and should be back soon!
