Mineplex chat

Wizards, formerly known as Wizard Battles, is a Survival minigame that was released to Mineplex on May 1st, 2015. It was released as a Beta minigame on January 23rd, 2015. This game is a heavily modified version of RedWarfare's Wizard Battles, a smaller server Mineplex acquired on November 22, 2014. In Wizards, players fight using an array of magical spells with the objective of being the last player standing.

Players may opt to play with a custom resource pack, which adds custom art to the Spell Menu and other effects. Doing so is highly recommended, though not completely necessary. The pack automatically downloads; no manual downloadable pack currently exists.

Summary Edit

There is only one team: the yellow Players team. When the game starts, a large number of chests will be scattered around the map. Players have to dig through as many chests as possible to acquire armor, food, and various spellbooks to gear up and defeat their enemies.

Spellbook

A spell book.

 Spellbooks look like the icon of the spell they represent. They can be found in chests along with armor, materials, and food. If a spellbook is at any point in the player's inventory, the player will learn the spell, which can then be assigned to a spell wand. The spellbook is consumed in the process. Upon death, all items are dropped, including some consumed spell books, which can be consumed by anyone who picks them up. Normally, players start the game with no spells but Lv.1 Mana Bolt and Wizards Compass. Additional spellbooks of the same type of spell can be collected to increase the level of the spell, which makes them more powerful.[Note 1]
Spell Wand

A Spell Wand.

Spell wands are represented by retextured blaze rods; right-clicking one will bring up the spell menu. This displays all spells the player currently has in a GUI. With this, players are able to assign a specific spell to a wand. Through chests, players are also able to acquire additional wands for a maximum of 5, which can then be assigned to spells themselves. Grey squares represent empty wand slots. Normally, the player starts out with 2 wands.

Crafting is possible in Wizards, but players are limited to only a few items. Creating items from raw materials can offer an advantage to the player, since they don't have to rely solely on the loot obtained from Chest (grid) Chests. Crafting Table (grid) Crafting Tables are rare or nonexistent in most maps, but players can craft their own using Oak Wood Planks (grid) Wood Planks.

Broken is the cage, the skies scream with rage!

The ground trembles with fear, our doom is here!

Where the wizards stand, meteors strike the land!

Fight to the death! Fight with your dying breath!''

 
Mineplex chat

Players are limited not only by the cooldown of the spells when casting, but also by the amount of mana they have. By default, each player has a maximum of 100 mana, along with a regeneration rate of 2.5 mana per second (mps), displayed at the top of the screen. The maximum, as well as the rate of regeneration, can be bolstered with special kits and power surges. Power surges begin at the four-minute mark, with another one per minute; each decrease the mana cost and cooldown of spells.

There is a time limit of 10 minutes. Afterwards, one of two poems will appear in the chat, seen left; following this example, meteorites will begin showering from the sky, with the frequency and power of them increasing as Overtime progresses. The round will keep going until only one player is left alive. There is a second poem that will instead deploy increasingly powerful lightning bolts which function similarly.

The number of wizards left in the game is displayed to the right, along with the time limit.

Notes Edit

  1. While spells are the preferred method of attack, punching with fists/wands still inflicts damage.
  2. Kits that are highlighted red are removed from the final version.
  3. Below,
    • "SL" represents "Spell Level",
    • "B" represents "Blocks",
    • "HP" represents "Hit Points", and
    • "s" represents "seconds".
  4. Originally named Droom.
  5. Lightning Strike erroneously had the description of Rumble in the Beta version. This has since been fixed.
  6. Originally named Magic Missile.
  7. The "budget restraint" that is referenced could really be a joking way of nerfing the Rainbow Beam, in order to prevent the skill from becoming too overpowered by players sniping from afar.
  8. Originally Stone Wall.
  9. Replaces Launch and Launch Rune.
  10. An implosion is an inward explosion, meaning the former is the opposite of the latter. The spell causes an implosion in its first stage, but deviates away from this definition in its second stage, when the blocks are scattered outward.
  11. Replaces ''Bridge'' spell.
  12. Originally an Attack Spell.
  13. Originally a Rune Spell, a section that was removed.
  14. Originally named Spiderman, and did not deal damage.
