Skyblock Survive on an Island in the sky.
Survive on a floating Island with minimal resources. Level-up and expand solo or with friends. Collect crystals to buy upgrades and boosters.
Creating an Island
Each player can have their own Island, or they can become a member of someone else's. Type /is to open the Island menu. This menu shows many of the options and features of Skyblock. If you don't yet have an Island, you'll be prompted to create one. Open the menu at any time to return home by clicking the bed, or type /is home.
Surviving with a few items
The first thing to do is open your chest. Inside you will find a handful of items to help you get started. Place a torch so monsters won't spawn. Use the pickaxe and break the cobblestone (between the water and lava) to generate more cobblestone and ores. Begin growing wheat and expanding your Island.
Working with friends
Working together with others is a quick way to grow your Island. You can invite someone with /is invite [player] to become a member of your Island (as long as they don't have their own Island). Members can be given certain permissions, promoted or demoted, and help complete missions and challenges. If someone who is already a member of another Island wants to help build, you can trust them with /is trust [player] to give them building permissions only. To teleport to your friends, see our navigation page.
Upgrades and Boosters
To truly expand your Island you will want to purchase upgrades with /is upgrades. Increase your building radius, invite more members, place extra hoppers and pistons, and unlock better ores that will spawn in your cobblestone generator. You can also use boosters with /is boosters which give a limited-time boost to crop growth, mob spawning, experience gain, or even fly mode! Boosters and upgrades can be purchased with Crystals.
Earning Crystals and EXP
Earn Crystals by completing missions and challenges to buy boosters and upgrades. New missions will show up daily, so make sure to log in each day to maximize your earnings. Challenges can be completed once, and although they are harder they have much higher rewards. You will also earn EXP, which can help level-up your Island, when you'll earn more Crystals and also isoVerse XP. Check your EXP progression with /is exp.
Giving friends more permission
When you invite someone (and they accept), they'll become a Member of your Island. Promote them to a higher rank with /is promote [player]. Use /is permissions to decide what features each rank can use:
- Visitor – Anyone who has not joined your Island. They do not have any permission.
- Member – Can build and open chests by default.
- Elder – Can invite other players and ban visitors.
- Leader – Can change permissions, promote, and demote.
- Owner – Can delete the Island. The original Island creator is the Owner, but you can transfer ownership with /is transfer [player].
Visiting the Nether and End
Each Island has a Nether and End Island that is only accessible when you build a portal. Build basalt generators in the Nether to generate netherrack and other ores. As you purchase higher levels of the Ore Generator upgrade, the basalt generator will give better ores as well (nether quartz, nether gold, glowstone, and ancient debris).
Trading items with the townspeople
Type /spawn to visit the Skyblock spawn, where you can find a dozen townspeople willing to trade with you. You'll start out with only the minimum essentials, but if you collect enough items you can trade for better ones.
Trading items with others
To make a deal with another player, type /trade [player]. A trade is a safe environment where you both can place items you want to swap. Once both players lock in the trade, the items are moved automatically. If you don't want to receive trade requests, use /tradetoggle.
Improving your Skills
Skills provide a fun RPG-like way to advance your skills and abilities. Type /skills to view the menu where you can view your stats, power levels, abilities, and more. Improve your Skills just by doing actions that match that skill's category, including: Acrobatics, Archery, Axes, Swords, Unarmed, Excavation, Fishing, Herbalism, Mining, Woodcutting, Alchemy, Repair, Taming, Salvage, and Smelting.
PvPing with others
To test out your weapons and armor, enable PvP mode with /pvp. If two players have this enabled, they will be able to fight. On combat death you will not lose your items or experience points.
