- The Mob Arena is situated on a special 124x124 residence on SMP5, which can be accessed by using the command /mobarena on any server. Here, players can take part in events designed to pit their fighting and surviving skills against an onslaught of mobs in a dynamic, hostile environment. There are two fighting floors. Each fighting floor has the ability to transfer dropped items to the winner's chest area.
There is also a parkour, which is located near the chests. It is an extremely hard parkour course with an unknown prize at the End of it.
The Mob Arena was first envisioned by Maxarias in September 2012, making it one of the longest running events held on Empire Minecraft. The design of the Arena itself has transformed multiple times since then.
The Main Arena(top)
In the main arena, regular mobs (along with a few EMC bosses and enraged mobs) are spawned on the players. The main arena floor is in the middle of the main building. It is surrounded by glass to allow easy viewing for spectators. Access to the arena is via an opening on the ground floor, which is closed off during an event. Directly above the main arena floor is the bird's eye spectator area. The Control Room is above the spectator area, and it is where staff members are able to spawn mobs into the main arena.
Risks and rounds(top)
Once you die in the arena, you will drop all of your items, except for your soulbound items. The dropped items will go to the round winner, so it is advised to be careful with what you bring, as you are likely to die. All of the rounds only have one winner: the last player alive. Staff members may hold different types of rounds, including those outlined below.
Normal round(top)In this round, all types of mobs and bosses will be spawned, including EMC's Custom Mobs and minibosses. You can bring anything you want.
No items & no buffs round(top)In this round, less mobs are spawned, and you cannot bring any items into the arena. Hunger regeneration is turned off, which makes this round require a lot more strategy than just combat skills.
Zombie maze round(top)In this round, after players are inside the arena, glass is randomly spawned in, creating a maze. Once that is done, zombies are spawned on top of the arena, and then they fall into the maze. Players must then survive, and the last one alive wins. No items are allowed during these rounds.
The Boss arena(top)
The boss arena floor is underground. Access to it is via the teleport pad near the entrance to the Mob Arena residence, and then another teleport pad located in the corners of the spectator area takes you to the fighting floor. In this arena, lots of bosses and minibosses will be spawned, such as Withers, Momentuses, and Marlixes. There is no control room for the Boss Arena, so boss mobs require manual spawning.
The winner of the Mob Arena round is awarded everything that is dropped in the arena, including players' armor and mob drops (some mob drops, such as mini-boss drops and Nether stars, are disabled). Winners of both the Items and No-Items rounds will usually receive Tokens.
In special Mob Arena rounds, victors can win a special prize, such as the Arena Blade or the Arena Longbow.
You can view the Events Hub to view scheduled Mob Arena hosts, dates and times.
The above events are the planned Mob Arena events, but other staff members may still hold unexpected events, which are announced in in-game Chat broadcasts.
Take part in events on EMC, host one yourself or visit a special Empire residence.
