Invasions

From Rebirth of the Night Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Invasions are a mechanic in Rebirth of the Night in which every few days, a large horde of monsters spawn in. Monsters spawned in on invasions know where the player is within a 1000 block radius and will dig or pillar to get to them like other mobs. Players cannot use portals or sleep during an invasion.

Invasions will occur every x days, depending on the game version:

  • 3.0 BETA 2 and prior: 9 days
  • 3.0 BETA 3 and 4: invasions do not occur
  • 3.0 BETA 5 to 3.1.0: 7-10 days
  • 3.1.1 and onward: 10-12 days

The following texts can appear in chat because of invasions:

  • "Something isn't right. You feel too uneasy to sleep..." when the player tries to sleep during an invasion.
  • "A strange force binds you to this earth... The portal doesn't seem to be working." if a player tries to teleport away from the overworld during an invasion.
  • "An invasion has started in the Overworld! You must get back to fight it or be teleported to your spawn point automatically in 120 seconds." if the player is not in the overworld when an invasion begins.
  • "The mobs leave as the sun rises." when an invasion night is over.

The following are the mobs in each invasion, sorted by progression stage. Please keep in mind that in addition to the listed mobs, every invasion spawns some zombies and skeletons which may or may not have tnt and pickaxes.

The Beasts

- Flavor Text: "You hear a pack of wild animals in the distance..."

- Invading Zombie: A regular zombie, with all the same attributes and variations.

Minibosses
- The Dissolved Bandit: A 100-HP Skeleton Warrior, wields two short swords in melee.
- Mother Bear: A 50-HP, poisoned bear. Seems slower than most bears, but that might be because the poison interrupts its movements.
