This map's quality is incredible. I gotta say, I wondered if it suffers from hunger bar disbalance (when the pace of its depletion is not balanced with the amount of food the player receives), but the ability to trade flesh and bones for food is simple and genius.
I played this map alone, and eventually my inventory got flooded by loot. I kept everything I could, because I thought I had to manage weapon durability and spend experience to combine damaged weapons using an anvil, but it seems I was overthinking it.
The design of the mansion itself is gorgeous, to say the least. You've managed to create a believeable replica of a huge mansion even on the inside!
Skeleton King's knockback was impressive, but as soon as I met generic skeletons with essentially the same knockback, SK's reputation diminished. There's nothing, er, 'kingy' about him, but I guess it was hard to make him unique in more ways than adding a crown ontop of his head.
By the way, those zombies in black armor and with skeleton heads. Those guys. My first thought: "Israphel?"
Also, random Endermen inside the mansion feel out of place. At first I thought it is supposed to be Zatho (which makes sense, a tall creepy man teleporting around, of course it's a dark mage), but once one of them died, I realised they're here for nothing.
Overall, you did a great job. It is the map I will remember forever, one of the megaliths of MC adventure map design.
Creative, Scary, Difficult and Mind Melting.
One of the best Adventure Maps in Minecraft's history if I can say.
As many says the wither is hard, it shouldn't be if you use your brain a little more.
For what you know the wither can be easy to defeat or it can be hard depends which side you see it from and which side you want to see it from.
Intense adventure map? Really? You call skeletons with protection 10 diamond armor and Punch 6 Power 50 bows intense? You call witches with potion rain and mages with 1-hit kills intense? That's just frustrating. Great concept, just too hard to enjoy,
How to beat the wither: First use the Holy water agains the skeleton obsidian. Turn around to regroup them and use the holy water to kill them and heal you at the same time. By killing them you get tears that you can trade for a powerfull bow. Get 2 bows, clears the obsidians and get 3-4 shots with that super bow at the wither. That bow remove around 15-20% hp to the wither per shot. Once he reach 50% hp he will come in melee and then you finish him.
oh my glob... My head exploded when i looked at it! i cant download it is so awesome! andwith no mods, too! i think you are herobrine, and you modified the code without me noticing! need to get my tin foil hat......
Darn you HyPixel! You made this map so much fun! I left off before the Skelly King fight cause I needed a break after having to go through the dark room a million times. It actually startled me when I saw the lights go out.
Also if you are having problems in the Crypt, get the skellys and Zombies to follow you to the narrow hallway and fight them off, this way you can take them out one by one.
What I also like is how you don't lose everything and it really makes you use your head, when I died a few times at the beginning I went to victors house and tapped one zombie at a time and killed them one at a time.
Does Hypixel have any other adventure maps? this is probably one of my favorites so far.
