'Nother question! Since you didn't answer my other one, any idea when you'll be able to fix the blacksmith and/or tinkerer? They've been broken since at least season 7 of Skyblock, before it was Aztec and Oasis. Neither of them give any high chances of dust, ever.

Aside from that, I have a tutorial island in the works because of how minimal the current tutorial dungeons are. Any chance you'd be willing to look at and/or expand on my idea, or at least fix up more of the tutorial dungeon?

Do you know when the Ancient Trials mode in Survival (/trials) will be back? Also have you thought about either upgrading Survival's server or limiting the playercount on that server? I would take a queue over lag any day :)

Oh yeah and awesome job the amount of work you've done on Manacube is incredible <3
Trials was added yesterday. Theres a memory leak causing lag spikes that we're fixing atm
Thanks <3

When's the next parkour reset?
I don't have plans on ever "hard resetting" parkour. I want peoples progress to be saved forever
We are going to be doing competitive seasons though, which are separate from your all-time stats

So the only issue is they only give low success chance dust?
For sure! how do I get to it?

Yeah, no matter what you do to give them some sort of success rates, they only ever give about 5-20% dust, and never ever higher, from what I've seen. I've seen a ton of players also fumble with it to try at least 100 times, and they also said they never got higher than maybe 25%.
As for the warp, you can always feel free to tp to me in game [menaciingly,] but in the event I'm offline, the warp is set at /pwarp tutorials ! It's not done yet, not by a long shot, but it is set up to have a separate building per each tutorial, such as there being a windmill for the mana tutorial, and there's going to be a large castle at the end for the donator ranks and a blacksmith-like area to explain /CE's, etc.

Got any ideas for the reward?
I had came up with a tag that I thought would be a good reward for spending almost 1000 hours mining in order to reach level 120.

That tag being:

Will the wiki be open to player edits (with moderated approval of course) or will it be run by staff only?

Also, why don't you want to hard reset Parkour? A majority of the players that I've talked to, as well as almost all of the Mappers, would like to see and would greatly benefit from a hard reset.

Competitive seasons were announced for the last parkour update which was about a year ago now. They never happened. This is not news and we've been patiently waiting for them and more. As SSM said, we're hoping for a sneak peek at the new parkour update.

Staff only, but there is a #wiki discord channel

parkour has over 15,000 daily players and I don't think the majority would want a reset
Can I have ur snap? Xx

Is Manacube gonna be getting new cosmetics? Like trails or auras?

Actually loving this Dacon.

What is your favourite game mode or the one you could see yourself playing? (Survival is always the right answer)

Who gave you/ Why did you want to do an AMA

If you could change one thing on Manacube what would it be?

If you could change one thing what would it be?

Would you ever open a mini game on Manacube?

Does @Boomclaw look like Tom Holland ?

Which Admin has the loudest keyboard?

Lastly would (self serving question I know) you ever consider some more integration of the forums in game ? or perhaps Titles?
https://manacube.com/threads/insentives-for-forum-use.57281/#post-187546

Who is the most annoying patron+ and why is it @Linkey ?

Do you realise how many damn questions you're going to be answering ?

Hello Dacon! I just want you to read one of my posts, since that's another thing checked off the bucket list.

Though I do I have a couple questions:

One, can you add a build battle mini game?

And second, do you every vanish in survival and just go around to see what people are building just for fun?

And like Sonic_Raptor said, you may be answering quite a few questions.:mc_79-0:
