    I wanna start of by saying thanks to @jinjo90 for making the nether possible in skyblock! Make sure to thank him if you see him in game c:
    The nether:
    We all know what the nether is; hell. There are flying overweight unicorns that spit fire at you (ghasts) and slimes that tried swimming in lava, but the nether isn't all bad; The following items are new to skyblock, and can be accessed via the nether:

    NetherRack.
    Soulsand.
    Gravel.

    Wither Heads
    Beacons
    Quartz ore, blocks, slabs, stairs, chiseled quartz and pillar quartz
    Blazerods
    Blazepowder
    Various horse armours
    Netherstar
    Coal
    Flint
    Enderchests
    Eye of Ender
    Requirements:

    There are no requirements to access the nether. You can access it via the /spawn command, and then entering the conveniently placed nether portal.
    Recommended items:

    Those who enter with nothing more than a stone sword, expecting massive payout,
    will die.

    Recommended setup for the nether:
    AT LEAST full diamond armour, with a diamond sword, pickaxe and shovel.
    AT MOST full diamond armour, enchanted with either fire protection or protection III at least. An enchanted sword, with knockback, sharpness and looting, A pickaxe with efficiency, and a shovel.
    You should also bring food, as you don't want to get hungry half-way through hell. Steak, porkchops, cooked potato, cooked fish, cooked rabbit, golden apples and bread should be fine. Don't bring uncooked potatoes, carrots or cookies though, and certainly not melon. God apples are also a valid choice, but only if you're under attack. Bows don't necessarily need to be enchanted, but you will save inventory space by having infinity or power. Enderpearls are a GREAT choice, getting you down ledges and to those hard to reach fortresses.
    Threats:
    Attack pigmen at YOUR OWN RISK. They aren't generally hostile, until you attack one. At this point, your only option is to gapple up or run; you have an army after you. they're angry and they're ugly and they smell of bacon.
    The biggest threat within the nether is, beyond compare, players themselves
    .
    The nether IS a pvp zone. This means that a player could attack you at will, dip your head in lava, shoot an arrow at your eyebrow or even nuke you with TnT. *lightbulb*
    Remember that SUPERxSNAP, aka the diglett commander, will team with anyone in the nether, but if you try anything funny, you will die ^.-
    Do NOT build anything in the nether that you wish to keep. I.e don't go making fortresses out of diamond blocks, because you will lose them. Unlike factions, you can not "claim land" and therefore any player could smash your creations. In addition to this, i am predicting that the nether will be reset frequently, so don't hide any valuables in there.
    Finally, don't trust people in there. Besides noobtube team mates to look after, the last thing you want is an advanced team mate with a pickaxe in your head. Only trust friends and players on your island.
    Feel free to discuss the nether update below, whether you like it or hate it, and what you would like to see that could improve it. :)
    P.S. epic duplication glitch, drop an item, place a bed over it and sleep in the bed whilst in the nether!! It really works, try it!! I got like 11 beacons from this!

    That semicolon should be a normal colon. *twinge*

    On Topic: I've been exploring with a mix of iron and diamond armor and I've made off like a bandit. The nether's not so scary; it's the pvp zone that's the hazard. I ventured out about 2,000 blocks from spawn and the only risk there was jumping off a cliff (I've found that feather falling does absolutely nothing in the nether.) I recommend speed potions, invisibility potions, fire resistance potions, and enderpearls. Even with armor, invisibility potions help to conceal you from other players pretty well, and speed potions allow you to get away from the highly trafficked spawn area quickly.

    I found a better dupe. You need to stand in a nether portal (not the one at spawn) and drop the item you wanna dupe. Then press Alt and F4 at the same time.

    It's a lot easier to do this glitch if you delete System32 and download more RAM.

    nether is really cool. I bring a stone sword and a stone pick with some carrots. 1. i bring carrots becuase i really low on animals and carrots supposively make you see better (that should be an update; eating carots give you nigh vision). And 2. stone sword and pickaxe because the person who owns the island I am on brought full iron and a dia sword and died to a hacker.

    I know that guy. Will kill him and record him. Got some decent gear, and 2 mates that can likely help.
