AvatarMC v0.5: What’s New? Direct Link

Greetings and salutations, readers! Yes, it’s me again, and boy, do I have news for you! That’s right, we’re going to be releasing something – no, it’s not dragons (sorry, Zuko).

  • Characters
    • Players will be able to create multiple characters on one account. Players are given three slots to begin with (including your existing character). Extras are available on the store for $9.99, with a bundle of three available for $24.99.
  • Advancements
    • Furthermore, players will be able to earn advancements - offering new players guidance in our little slice of Avatar, and giving completionists another mountain to conquer. Each element contains its own set of advancements, which ties in nicely with our new character system.
  • The Earth Rumble Arena
    • Are you ready to rumble? Good, because we are. Our shiny new dungeon features a full market ring (with NPCs!) and a tournament. Fight through the various opponents on offer, or just wander the market ring and read our sarcastic yet humorous dialogue – your choice.
    • Beware: The tournament section of the dungeon is single-player only, which works by providing each player with an instance of the arena. Make sure you’re prepared before you enter!
  • Navigation
    • Have you ever thought “Gee, I have no idea where I am”? Well, we did something about that. Now you’ll be able to explore our capital cities as easily as you wish – using the /nav command!
  • A New Element
    • Yes, you read that correctly. Well, technically it’s not an element, per se. Once one of your characters reaches Level 25, you'll be able to begin anew as a Nonbender.
    • Featuring a versatile move-set with grenades, mines and throwing knives, players will need to stay on the move to make full use of their new abilities.
