Features and Changes
The communities feedback has been invaluable and has had a huge impact during this development cycle of Skyblock Pandora. This release will spark a new beginning for Skyblock Pandora.
New Pandora Spawn
To celebrate the the revamp of Skyblock Pandora, we have a brand new spawn! Get ready to experience one of the best builds we've featured on Vortex in some time!
This season the main economy will be changed from grinding methods like fishing and blazes to something far more superior! We have all heard your plea's and have come with a more automatic grinding method/economy for everyone to enjoy!
However, grinding will be almost completely different along with the removal of Soul currency, Chest Revamps, more use of XP, and more ways to make Money and earn XP!
This season's economy will be based mostly on XP and Money with a little bit of automation upon your requests.
All spawners will be removed from Pandora apart from the following: Skeletons, Zombie Pigmen, Witches, Villagers, Blazes, Guardians, and Iron Golems.
The following spawners will have a new base price of:
- Villager spawner buy price will be 5 million
- Witch spawner buy price will be 2.5 million
- Zombie pigman (zombified piglin) spawner buy price will be 1.25million
- Iron golem spawner buy price will be 2.5 million
- Guardian spawner buy price will be 1.25 million
- Skeleton spawner buy price will be 625k
Zombie Pigmen will no longer drop Netherite Ingots, but they will now go back to dropping Gold Ingots, Skeletons will go back to dropping bones.
Mob Drop prices will be revamped to the following:
- Iron ingot sell price is $16
- Prismarine shard sell price is $8
- Bone sell price is $4
- Blaze Rod sell price is $34
Collectors and Crop Hoppers
Crop hoppers are being brought back for this season of Skyblock Pandora along with the addition of collectors being re-added.
Collectors and Crop Hoppers will be a source for gathering Sugarcane from Cane farms. With the mention of Sugarcane, Cane sell price will be reduced to 0.6 per.
Island Team Size
A recent poll was held on the community Discord and the results have determined that the maximum amount of members allowed per island will now be 8.
XP and Money will now be the main currency and can be obtained by the Mobs below:
- Money: Iron Golems, Guardians and Skeletons.
- XP: Blazes
Fishing is going to remain the same.

With the addition of Wizard being brought back, you will now be able to do /withdrawexp again!
With Blaze spawners being kept into Pandora, they will now be added as another source of gaining XP and will be better than fishing!

We are very excited to introduce Levels as a new perk of voting! Using /levels in-game will bring up the menu where you can see each level's requirements and rewards! The rewards will contain a wide variety of items and perks that scale proportionately with the levels and also are worth while.
