:thonk:
It all started on that one rainy day in idkwhichmonth, I have entered the game, almost crashed trying to find a mine and soon decided that mines will be my home. Mining is an okay way of getting money, though you cannot take a break if you want a constant $$ flow.
And once there was stone age, milk decided to create a cacti farm! Nice and easy, eh? Well, it took me way more time than I intended to and it did not provide me enough cash to be worth it.
So milk was thinking. And milk thought of a solution. A grinder! Even though I had to rebuild it like 5 times, I still have it now. At some point I replaced tons of chests and sell wand with infinity chests, which isn't more benefitable but I don't have to take 5 minutes of my precious time to sell every half an hour.
Now my main income is my grinder - slow, but reliable. About once a day I also sell my cacti, which is no more but some extra millions every 12 hours or so. Ever since getting trench, some part of my income is also mining. I'm only looking forward to getting a collector minion to unclog my hoppers a little...
And milk has spoken and all was well.

well, I mean.. spawners are kinda expensive? Honestly, they've always been expensive... for me at least, okay just me... my point is... go hug a cactus >:O (also building cactus farms is a pain without fly)

Mob grinders are definitely the way to go. I only have 2 out of 4 corners on mine and I make about 300 million overnight it’s fast and efficient if you have max stacks

yee, I got a stack of pig spawners rn, bcuz my slayer level is non existant... bcuz I'm not a person who likes to mindlessly click killing mobs. Anyways, the spawner stacking makes it a real pain tbh... so I'm just trying to find the best way to make a grinder using as little money as possible. Thinking a redstoneless grinder bcuz Idk how to do redstone. :/

Hi! Also welcome backkkk!!

I’m holy to see you becoming active again! It’s been forever my friend. For money there are multiple ways now, mainly people set up gigantic grinders which are done differently than how they were in season one due to slander stacking and spawners limits.

I suggest seeing if someone will show you their grinder in order to get an idea on how to set one up efficiently.

There are many different ways to get money fast, primarily from cacti farms (slow) or mob grinders (fairly fast)

For an easy to make cacti farm, visit /warp cactitut for a preview of what it should look like.

For mob grinders, use your Slayer level to increase what mobs you are able to kill and the spawners they come from.

Ask anyone around if they have tips on how to make an efficient grinder.

Just to be sure, we are able to stack spawners right? If yes, how many can we stack?
I don't think there is a max to number of spawners u can stack.

Wow. So that part there is kind of OP ;). But do spawners spawns by themselves or players need to be around it? And the range for it if you know?

The player has to be online, you have to be close enough to the spawner that it starts "glowing"
Hope that helps!
Edit: You have to be within sixteen blocks, any father and it won't work.

Not that I'm aware, but you may want to ask staff. I know that you have to have a certain slayer level for each mob. Like pig is Slayer Level 1 and it's ur default level. You can check it all it with ./slayer. (If you don't have a high enough slayer level, you won't be able to buy the spawner from shop)

Hi Wolfisteel,
For spawner to work they a player needs to be within 30 blocks of the spawner. In addition to what ever block they need to spawn on. Hostiles need darkness. Passive mobs need grass+lighting.

Also, it's important to note that mobs cannot spawn on glass. Like you said, passive mobs need grass to spawn and light. Though some do not need grass, and will spawn in mid air.

The Max spawner stack is 120 for aether. Any additional spawner of the same kind have to be at least 20 blocks away from the original stack. Like stated above you have to be within a certain distance for them to spawn. There also is no rules against grinders on olympus in any way shape or form.
