    The Antidote enchantment update sparked a lot of conversation, everyone had different opinions about the topic but there was one clear message: it had to be adjusted because the negative enchantments on swords become completely useless when fighting a player who has armour with the antidote enchantment.

    First of all I would like to thank everyone for posting their feedback on the forums. We read all of it and try to find solutions that work the best for everyone, keep posting ideas and discussing changes and we will make sure to look at all the options we have.

    Now here is what we changed in a quick overview:
    • Antidote now goes up to level 4
    • Every level of antidote gives a higher chance to prevent negative effects (see spoiler below)
    • You can only enchant a chestplate with antidote
    • Prices have been adjusted
      • Level 1: 1600 tokens
      • Level 2: 3200 tokens
      • Level 3: 6400 tokens
      • Level 4: 12800 tokens
    We will not reveal the exact changes for it to proc, but you can see an example of the levels in these GIFs below. Level 4 does not mean you are 100% immune to all negative effects.

    Each hit you receive from another player, it has a chance to proc the antidote effect.

    If you have already enchanted items with antidote 1 for a price of 15000 tokens, we can remove it off your item for you and refund you 15000 tokens. Unfortunately we are not able to automatically do this as enchantments are not logged.
    Just message an admin or above or tag them with @Admin in the #support channel on our Discord server. (https://becto.net/discord)

    These changes are effective on Skyblock and Factions right now.

    In other news, related to this topic... the antidote enchantment does not work on 1.8 servers- we have removed it off prison in the mean time and have notified the developer to push a fix for this.

    If there are any more questions, please feel free to discuss below.

    Just don't bring blindness back and we're chilling. Not sure how effective the enchant is since it's early on and I don't intend on investing that much on it this early. I'm sure people are going to complain about God armor getting even more enchants but if it's only one piece then it shouldn't be a problem, if it was on all then it most likely would be an issue.

    The previous users will have antidote 1, this will goto antidote 1 on this update. So no.

    But that means there is no guarantee when there would be a refund right, because the antidote 1 now and previously are the same thing

    What? Dude we paid 15k for that antidote 1 and this new one is worth 1.6k and they both do the same thing so they have to give us a refund.

    Considering the old antidote had 100% chance to remove and this new one is split into levels and increases in chances in each level they are completely different. As Jetpuffed stated refunds will be issued. However I highly suggest reading the thread next time.

    suppose someone enchants antidote 1 for 1600 tokens and immediately acts as if it were enchanted previously and asks for a refund of 15000 tokens, anyone could do that, there is no way of knowing whether it was enchanted for 15000 tokens or 1600 tokens

    Most things done one the server leaves some kind of trail in the logs, buy something for tokens will create a log of when this happened etc. So it would be quite easy to makes sure they wont be cheated ;-)
