Coins are the main form of currency in SkyBlock to buy and sell items. Despite its name, it is possible to have decimal amounts of coins, although they are typically not obtained in this way.
Display[edit | edit source]
All players have their coins displayed on the right side of the screen (the scoreboard). If the player does not have a piggy bank, the coin storage will be displayed as "purse" and if they do have one, it will be displayed as "piggy".
Storage[edit | edit source]
Any coins collected by the player goes into the player's purse. Should the player not desire to hold some of these coins, they may be deposited in the Bank, to a maximum of 50,000,000 at the first level. There are five levels and the final one can hold a max of 1 billion (1,000,000,000) coins.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Selling items to a Merchant will exchange the selected item for a predetermined number of coins. Putting items in the Auction House may also give the player coins if someone bids on the item placed. These coins can be collected by talking to the Auction Master.
Upon leveling up in a Skill, a set number of coins is immediately awarded to the player. The number of coins given increases with the level.
Dropped coin items can be picked up by the player as a way to collect coins. During the mythological ritual, monsters and griffin burrows drop coins that can be dark red or dark blue. Coins drop when the player kills a hostile mob, with more coins being awarded for higher level mobs. The Scavenger enchantment allows for additional coins to be dropped. Dropped coins also randomly spawn nearby a player with a Talisman of Coins. (This only works on public islands.)
The Bank awards 2% interest on the first 10 million coins in the bank. Every subsequent few millions of coins, the interest rate will decrease. Thus, players with wealthy coops will receive less interest from the bank. Interest will be given at the start of every new season (approximately every 31 hours).
Another way to directly obtain coins is by fishing up treasures. The chance to catch those up increases with the fishing skill level.
An easy early game way of obtaining is to make a large farm on your island spanning the entire area typically below the regular island. In the mid-game bazaar and auction flipping are an easy way to make coins.
Coins are tradable.
Losing coins[edit | edit source]
Upon death (with the exceptions of falling into the void on a Private Island, death in the Colosseum, and failing the Trial of Fire), the player will lose half of the coins in their purse, splitting coins into decimals rather than rounding. If the player dies in other ways, their purse will not be deducted. For example, a player who walks off their private island will not lose any coins in their purse, but a player knocked off the island by a Zombie will lose coins, if they have any on them. However, as any non-void death (such as fall damage) will result in you losing coins is best to assume you will lose coins for any non-mob associated death as well. It may be noted that this state of being knocked off by a mob lasts for less than ten seconds or so, meaning if you stall your descent with an Aspect of the End and/or Grappling Hook, you can keep your coins, even if you get knocked off by a mob.
The Legendary Phoenix Pet allows players to not lose coins on death under any circumstances. The Piggy Bank allows this but dying results in it getting cracked, reducing its effectiveness, until it eventually breaks.
Having Wolf Slayer level 8 decreases the amount of coins lost on death by 5%.
Having an active Booster Cookie will fully negate coin loss.
Your purse is deactivated in Dungeons and you can't lose any coins in Dungeons. That is, with the exception of the Dungeon Post-Boss Chest. It will require you to have coins in your purse to take anything from the diamond, obsidian, or gold chests. If you dont have any coins in your purse, it will take coins from your Bank instead, prioritizing your Personal Bank over the Co-op bank if you are in a coop.
Usage[edit | edit source]
- Coins can be used to buy items at a shop, or bid on items at the Auction House. If the player does not win a bid, and the auction ends, they may reclaim their coins by talking to the Auction Master. The coins will immediately be subtracted from your purse when you make a bid but if you are not the top bidder, you will get all your coins back.
- It can also be used to make auctions of their own, allowing other players to bid on it and earn more coins.
- You can also exchange coins with player trading as of 22 February 2020 with the 0.7.6 patch.
- With the 0.7.7 patch, a new NPC named Bazaar gives you the ability to buy many items very quickly without having to wait until the end of your auction in the Auction House.
- You can also use coins to trade with other players with the 0.7.8 patch.
