    as you know pumpkins and melons were taken out of the shop and stuff was made cheaper to see. One reason was that they would grind points to spend in sw etc. Now people are having to bring points in other places to spend in sky block. This takes a long time and if you want something like a full set of diamond armour this will take a long time. You might say but what about the diamonds in challenges? Of the challenges I've done/unlocked dont give diamonds as a reward is there a challenge higher up that you can do? Someone has said something to me about doing a challenge again and again to get them. I'm not sure if it is true but it will take a while to get up to those levels so the newer people and slow progressing people will have close to no diamonds creating a giant gap between the older/ more experienced players and the newer ones. I'm not saying you cannot get them at low levels but it is hard. Maby a new way to get diamonds could be added or there price lowered in the shop.
    thanks, marm

    Prices shouldn't be lowered, but I am all for adding new challenges, or perhaps a new currency for the shop. Maybe 'Skybucks'?

    Agree with the idea of SuperxSnap and like I said in another thread, weekly or fortnightly challenges? 7-14 days. This should be added

    If weekly / monthly challenges are added, I would expect them to actually take around about a week or so to do, since what fun is completing a challenge in an hour and then having to wait a week for the next challenge.

    The idea of skyblock having its own game currency has been suggested and denied (by Sarah)

    I think it is good that it is hard to get diamonds.

    If you have a full village you can get about 1 stack of diamonds with the village people challenge and a fortune III dia pickaxe.

    You are actually not supposed to use alts (on the same island) though. That´s cheating and if I should notice I won´t be amused about it.

    But there is still a massive loophole, say there are 2 players and each have a separate account (meaning that one isnt a alt of another), player 1 kicks player 2, players 2 proceeds to make a new is thus clearing chlngs then player 1 invites player 2 who had his chlngs reset and they redo chlngs again till seen enough and repeat the process. The use of an alt should not be any less punishable because the same process applies to people who use alts because the only difference is that a single player controls both player 1 and player 2 but the process remains the same.

    each individual act is not against any skyblock rule but were saying the sum of these acts is prohibited? u see where the confusion can arise?

    Same is for the homeowner challenge where you get 10 lapiz blocks every time and when you look at those peoples island you can see that on #1 currently are 1168 lapiz blocks and 60 diamond blocks.
