Hypixel SkyBlock Patch Notes 0.20.1 - Chocolate Factory, Hoppity’s Hunt, and more! (2024)

View attachment 3310529


Welcome to Hypixel SkyBlock Patch 0.20.1. Today’s update has plenty of things in store, featuring Hoppity’s Hunt and Chocolate Factory, a follow-up patch for Glacite Tunnels, some long-awaited Dark Auction changes, and much more!

Read on to find out more about this release.

Hoppity’s Egg Hunt

On April 1st, 2022, we added a Cookie Clicker to the in-game Booster Cookie menu. Last year, we improved it, and this year, we’ve decided to integrate it officially into the game's progression.

Hoppity is a new NPC that will appear each in-game year during the Spring season, located under the mountain at the Carrot Cave.

Hop around some Public Islands to locate Hoppity's lost friends by collecting Chocolate Rabbit Eggs!

There are 3 different types of Chocolate Eggs, each of which will respawn at a different location every in-game day. Chocolate Eggs are not limited to one single player! You can share the joy of egg hunting with everyone in the lobby, so sharing the location of any Chocolate Eggs you find is encouraged! Opening an egg will reward you with a random Rabbit that gives you perks towards your Chocolate Factory.

There are many, many Rabbits to find. Each unique one you unlock will increase the production of Hoppity’s Chocolate Factory.

The Chocolate Factory

View attachment 3310536

The Chocolate Factory is an upgraded version of the Cookie Clicker minigame, which was previously available through the Booster Cookie menu. Your objective in the Chocolate Factory is to produce as much Chocolate as possible with lots of clicking and purchasing upgrades to help you increase your production each second. As your Chocolate production increases, you will be able to unlock many more items, upgrades, and eventually prestige your Chocolate Factory!

To access the Chocolate Factory, you can visit Hoppity in the Hub, or through the Calendar and Events menu in your SkyBlock Menu.

With the Chocolate you earn, aside from purchasing Chocolate Factory upgrades, prestiges, and more, you can use it to purchase items from the Chocolate Shop. This is a permanent shop that contains items you can purchase based on your Chocolate earned and your Chocolate Factory’s Prestige.

Designer’s Notes

While this is mostly an idle game, clicking is not intended to be the main gameplay element; thus clicking will only offer a few upgrades and will cap at a very low tier.

You might notice that gameplay in the Chocolate Factory runs out before you can achieve a prestige. We understand that some players might prefer playing the idle game by itself, but this is not just any idle game. It’s part of Hypixel SkyBlock’s economy, and its ultimate goal is linked to the Chocolate Shop.

We hope the Chocolate Eggs will be an exciting addition to the game and that you’ll have fun with the Chocolate Factory!

Depending on the success of the Chocolate Factory, this minigame may receive a multitude of extra features in future updates.

When is the Chocolate Factory opening?

You will be able to access Hoppity’s Hunt and the Chocolate Factory as soon as Early Spring of SkyBlock Year 346, which is a couple of days after the release of this post.

The cookies you earned from the previous iterations of the now defunct Cookie Clicker minigame will be converted into Chocolate, and will be waiting for you in the Chocolate Factory on its grand opening!

Dark Auction Changes

View attachment 3310764

After hosting over 40,000 Dark Auctions, Sirius has been hard at work to modernize and enhance the Dark Auction with the many billions of coins he has accumulated from you all. As a result, the Dark Auction has been renovated and its server capacity has been increased to accommodate as many of you as possible! Sirius has also sourced some new items that will be available in the Dark Auction’s item pool starting from today.

NEW! Magic 8 Ball

View attachment 3310539

Sirius noticed many players running around the Hub that weren’t sure how to spend their time, so he invented the Magic 8 Ball! At the beginning of every new SkyBlock Year, this item will pick from one of its possible buffs, and give those indecisive players a nudge in a direction chosen by the Magic 8 Ball itself!

NEW! Sirius' Personal Phone Number

View attachment 3310540

If you asked Sirius, he’d tell you that if the price was right, he’d happily sell his own soul. Unable to do that, he has instead decided to sell his own phone number to whoever is willing to pay him the most! Players who obtain this item may add Sirius as an Abiphone Contact and will receive 1% of their money back on all future Dark Auction purchases, so long as Sirius is in their Contacts Directory.

Other Dark Auction Changes

  • Modernized the Dark Auction build.
  • 2x as many servers are now allocated to Dark Auction events, allowing more players to enter.
    • This is increased to 3x as many servers during Scorpius’ mayorship.
  • Adjusted Dark Auction structure and added 1 additional round.
    • OLD: Item, Book, Item, Flower Minion.
    • NEW: Item, Book, Item, Item, Flower Minion.

Glacite Tunnels Changes

The Glacite Tunnels have been home to adventurers for over a week now, and in that time we’ve put together a brief follow-up patch to make quality-of-life and gameplay improvements.

Glacite Golem Pet

The Glacite Golem is a new pet that is unlocked at Glacite IX. Requiring a large amount of Glacite and Gemstones to craft, it’s tailored towards mining in the Glacite Mineshafts and increasing the amount of Glacite Powder gained from most sources.

View attachment 3310541

Cold Rework

When the Glacite Tunnels released, Cold was a relatively simple stat - for every 1 Cold the player has, their Mining Speed will be slowed by 0.5%, meaning at 99 cold the player has their Mining Speed decreased by 49.5% of its normal value.

This new rework to the Cold system aims to make the stat a bit more interactive, giving players the opportunity to entire negate the Mining Speed Penalty if they’re prepared enough:

  • If your Cold Resistance is greater than your Cold, your Mining Speed won't be affected by your Cold at all!
  • If your Cold is greater than your Cold Resistance, your Mining Speed will be reduced by 0.5% for every 1 Cold above your Cold Resistance value.
  • This means if you have more than 100 Cold Resistance, your Mining Speed will NEVER be affected by the Mining Speed Penalty!

If any of this is a bit difficult to understand, find the Cold Enjoyer NPC near the Dwarven Base Camp for a more in-depth explanation!

Mineshaft Pity

Mineshafts can currently be quite varying in nature, with some spawning in 2 minutes and others in 20. The Mineshaft Pity System intends to prevent long, dry streaks so that players can spend less time searching for mineshafts and more time in them.

  • When mining a block capable of spawning a Mineshaft, an invisible counter is now stored on the player. The value of this counter determines how likely a player is to get a Mineshaft.
  • This counter starts at 2,000, meaning the player has a 1/2000 chance of spawning a Mineshaft. Each time the player mines a block, their chance of spawning a Mineshaft increases, depending upon the quality of the block broken.
    • Gemstones, Glacite, Umber and Tungsten have a quality of 4.
    • Mithril has a quality of 2.
    • Titanium has a quality of 8.
      • The quality of the block mined is subtracted from your current counter. For example:
      • The base counter is 1/2000.
      • Breaking a Mithril block will improve the counter to 1/1998.
      • Breaking a Titanium block after this will further improve it to 1/1990.
        • This counter will continue to go down with each block break until you enter or spawn a Mineshaft, which will cause it to reset back to 1/2000.

Other Glacite Tunnels Changes

  • Changed the Mining Helix Emblems to show off the amount of commissions you've completed.
  • Changed Umber, Tungsten, and Glacite to now require 3 base fuel to mine.
  • Changed the Portable Campfire to remove 50 Cold instead of 15, also reduced the time between being able to place them.

  • Changed the Frozen Corpse chat breakdown to now include the type of corpse.
  • Changed Mineshaft portals to now stick around for up to 30 seconds.

  • Changed Reaper Peppers to now grant +1 Cold Resistance in addition to their previous effect.

General Changes

Rift Transfer Change

You can now no longer place an item with modifiers into the Rift Exporter menu. This should prevent players from transferring items with valuable modifiers into The Rift and losing all the modifiers in the process.

NOTE: We are aware of an issue with certain items being wiped in The Rift when the update initially rolled. This issue has now been resolved. We are working on refunding items lost due to this incident.

RNG Meter Command Shortcut

We added the /rngmeter (/rng) command shortcut to quickly access RNG meters for Slayer Bosses and The Catacombs. This command is only accessible while you have a Booster Cookie active.

Running the command without any additional arguments opens up a menu that lets you select which RNG Meter you want to view.

View attachment 3310545

You can specify parameters for the RNG Meter command to quickly access a specific RNG Meter.

The syntax is /rngmeter <mode> <param>, with <param> depending on the mode type:

You can use “catacombs” or the shorthand “cata” to specify for the Catacombs RNG Meter. In this case, the additional parameter will be the floor number.

  • /rng catacombs 7 opens the RNG Meter for Floor 7.
  • /rng cata M4 opens the RNG meter for Master Mode Floor 4.

You can use “slayer” to specify for the Slayer RNG Meter. In this case, the additional parameter will be the slayer boss type/name.

  • /rng slayer zombie opens the RNG Meter for Zombie Slayer.

There are various aliases and shorthands for each slayer that can open up the same RNG Meter menu.

  • /rng slayer spider and /rng slayer tarantula both can open up the RNG Meter menu for Spider Slayer.
