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.

In order to enter the build contest, all you need to do is type /server contest, claim a plot and start building!
The contest ends June 24th meaning you have 3 weeks to complete your build!

We also have some pretty cool prizes for the winners!

$50 for the store

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.

Hello everyone,

Over the past few weeks, our content & staff team have been working hard to produce an update out for you all, this includes some new policies that are to be introduced to our server along with the egg-citing Easter Event!

Easter Event
The Easter Event has arrived! Sail on over to Easter Island and help its citizens with their rabbit problem!
Head on over to it by using /easter, and see if you can catch the golden rabbit!

How to get started!
Speak to Roger Moai in the southernmost hut of the island, and he will ask you to catch rabbits for him with empty cages. Grab the empty cages under his house, and click the rabbits with them in your hand!

Event Duration: 2 Weeks (Ending 4th April)

Tinker
The tinker has been fully reworked which now uses vanilla experience instead of diamonds for upgrading dust, which now requires less dust to upgrade name essences for the lower tiers. Salvaging castians and creating castian dusts & essences now make dramatic sounds and particles. Mythic Elytras and shears can now be salvaged also!

New policy for outside-the-server trading
Many players have asked questions and offered comments, here in the forums, on the server, and in private messages, about the rules for trading in-game goods for money, goods, and services outside the server. After listening to player feedback and evaluating the situation, effective immediately we're instituting new rules governing such exchanges. From now on:

*Players may not use server-controlled communication channels to offer exchanges involving money, goods, and services outside the server.*

Here, "server-controlled communication channels" includes all in-game chat channels, the server forums, and the server's Discord channels. The primary motivation for this new policy is that, unlike in-game trades, in trades...
