Are you here for the Auction? Only the richest players can enter.
 
— Sirius

The Dark Auction (DA) is a special event which occurs every 3 SkyBlock days (1 hour). In these events, exclusive items are sold to the highest bidder.

Mechanics

The Dark Auction occurs every three in-game days at midnight or approximately 5 minutes before every real hour (ex: 1:55, 2:55, etc.) A timer for the next Dark Auction can be found here). The NPC Sirius appears in front of an iron door in the wilderness at the coordinates Compass.png91, 75, 176 at 11:50 pm in-game time for 35 seconds.

When Sirius appears at the iron door of the Dark Auction house, players must click on them to enter a queue for the Dark Auction. If the player successfully makes it in, they will be warped to another server into the house. Players can go behind the desk to go down the stairs and enter the Dark Auction room.

Players must have a minimum of 400,000 coins in their purse in order to enter. In addition, Sirius will only allow a certain number of players into the Auction across all of SkyBlock. 10 seconds after spawning in front of the Dark Auction house, players who try to enter will be sent to Dark Auction lobbies. If there are too many players trying to enter, only the richest players will be able to enter.

Within Dark Auction servers, the Auction House and Personal Bank cannot be accessed.

After 45 seconds of preparation, Sirius rains potions from the ceiling, causing all players to appear invisible. An item will be presented and will be showcased for five seconds. Players will then be able to place bids. Similarly to the Auction House, the highest bidder wins the item. However, the Dark Auction follows a different system to the Auction House. Auctions only last for ten seconds, but the timer will restart each time a bid is placed. Additionally, players can only bid predetermined amounts of coins by selecting items displaying possible bids from a line, replacing the item with the player's head. Players can not bid lower than the highest bid, and any invalid selections are marked by barrier blocks. Money is immediately removed from the player's purse on bid, but it is refunded if it is not the highest bid. If a player bids the highest on an item, but disconnects before winning the item, the coins will be automatically deducted and the item will be sent to Jerry.

There will be 4 items (7 items if Scorpius is mayor) all using this format. Once the Dark Auction is over, the back door will open and allow the player to walk back up to the house, and will later be teleported to the Hub Island.

Lucius will sell the player a special accessory line after buying certain amounts of items from the Dark Auction. After buying 5 items, he sells the Shady Ring; after buying 10 items, he sells the Crooked Artifact; after buying 15 items, he sells the Seal of the Family.
