Arthropod Egg

From CivWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

ArthropodEgg is a plugin used by Civ servers that adds the ability to obtain mob spawn eggs by killing mobs with a sword enchanted with Bane of Arthropods, an otherwise generally useless enchantment. Its mechanics are used by all live Civ servers.

Mechanics

Killing a mob with a weapon that has the Bane of Arthropods enchantment has a chance to drop a spawn egg item for the slain mob type. Each level of Bane of Arthropods increases the drop rate by 3%. The drop rate increases by 2% for every Looting enchantment level. A monster that drops a spawn egg will not drop any other loot.

Baby passive mobs will not drop spawn eggs, only the adult versions.

It is possible to get the spawn eggs of all passive mobs except for Snow and Iron Golems. On Civ+, you can additionally obtain the eggs of many hostile mobs.

Spawn eggs drop rate

Bane of the Arthropods I 3% 5% 7% 9%
Bane of the Arthropods II 6% 8% 10% 12%
Bane of the Arthropods III 9% 11% 13% 15%
Bane of the Arthropods IV 12% 14% 16% 18%
Bane of the Arthropods V 15% 17% 19% 21%

Trivia

  • No live Civ server uses the plugin ArthropodEgg to implement Bane of Arthropods functionality. Civ+ rewrote the plugin in Kotlin, while CivMC rolls the functionality into SimpleAdminHacks.[3][4]
