After playing pretty frequently on the skyblock server over the last 2-3 weeks, i have come to the conclusion that this economy is 99% based off of chests generated via vote or monetary transactions.
The current situation we're in, does not allow us to make any significant progress, and it quickly comes to a stop. my suggestion would be to add something in that will be between cactus(256$/stack) and iron golem spawners (8XX$/stack)
Maybe Bamboo? that would yield about 4-500 $ /stack, and would be even more expensive to buy directly off of /shop..
i've lost all sense of progression right now, and i would hate for it to continue like this.
also, i'm sure theres alot of you that feel the same way, Upvote this!:)
