New Staff Role - Guide
As the server grows in size, so does our staff team. As such, we have decided to introduce a brand new staff role—Guide.

This rank will be before Helper, and will (from now on) be the first rank successful applicants attain. Their primary roles will be to answer questions, assist players with issues or conflicts, and monitor chat. Guides will be unable to assist with grief, but Helpers, Moderators and Admins will still be able to fix any grief. Guides are an official staff rank, and as such they shall enforce the rules as staff—and their directions should be adhered to.

Hey everyone!

Global Build Contest
It's time for something new! A global build contest! In order to do this, we have setup an entire, exclusive creative server just for this contest. You'll have your own plot and creative build to build whatever you come up with!
The theme for the build contest is "A world of colour" which is a pretty broad theme. You can basically built whatever you want but we want to see you add vibrant colours and rethink otherwise mundane builds. If anything, you can use the spawn area on the contest server as inspiration.

Hello everyone!
Today we are bringing a truly epic update and an exciting announcement!

Chat
Our chat have gotten a massive overhaul where we've recoded the entire system. This has given us a number of new features and also prepared for any new additions to the server.
One of the new features is a fully functional /ignore that works across servers for individual players. You will no longer be able to see their messages and you can use /ignore <name> to undo the action.
Another feature is the ability to mute any channel or any server. Using /channel you have this menu
[​IMG]
This has an overview of all the available channels where you can mute individual channels.
You can also mute individual servers using /muteserver classic/greek (type again to unmute)
In essence, this will allow you to mute every single chat channel if you want complete peace when grinding!

Store
The store, store.castiamc.com has also been given a complete overhaul with a complete customized design and icons just for Castia. Additional to the new design, we have also added a couple of new items to the store which you might enjoy!
We have completely removed the diabolic items from the store but instead replaced them with two new sets of items. Meridiem and Ardens items. The two sets are similar to Castian items you might find ingame however they also have a new unique enchant, Soulbound.
The soulbound enchant allows you to keep the item after death, even if you don't have keep inventory. This is a great new enchant to make sure you don't lose your precious item from falling into lava or in the arms of mobs.
Another new addition is the Legendary Crates which is basically a buffed up version of the treasure crate for those who truly want to gamble.
