Undermagic Beta 37

I am pleased to say that I am resuming Undermagic updates on DPC today. It is obvious to me that the DPC team (soon to be rebranded to The Minecraft Hub, which I find much better than Minecrafty) is making changes to improve their systems.

Many changes have been made since the last Undermagic update on DPC. I recommend reading over the guide doc once more to see what has been added.
Bugs were introduced by the optimizations made in Beta 22. These bugs have been fixed. Thanks to NoahDecker for reporting them.
Undermagic now follows Minecraft Datapacks's advancement convention.
New magic weapons!
  • Added the following magic weapons: Iron Rod, Diamond Piercer, Prismatic Scepter, Dragon Staff, Demon Flame Scepter, Blood Rain Staff (tiers 1 thru 3), Oblivion Staff
Massive performance improvements have been made this update. And when I say massive, I mean it!

Undermagic should now be much more viable for usage on large multiplayer servers without worry of lag.

Thanks for using Undermagic!

I have a lot more planned for this pack that you haven't seen yet.
My plans going forward are as follows:
  • Add magic weapons throughout the entire progression, and an Abyss armor for them.
  • Add weapons for each class made from Shadesull's drops and Abyss Shards.
  • Add familiars, beginning with an Ender Wyrmling familiar as the Ender Dragon's Infernal drop.
  • Add Shadesull's Lunatic drop: the Phyclactery.
  • Add firearms from mid-game onwards and allow Abyss Ranger armor to boost them.
  • Add the Recall Wheel, Emergency Recall Wheel and Enhanced Recall Wheel, additions to the Teleportation system that allow multiple Recall Locator Cards to be stored in a single item and used.
  • Add the final boss.
  • ...
Undermagic's endgame has been expanded!
  • Added the Abyss
    • New nether biome, spawned with a Crown of Ruin recieved after defeating all 5 progression bosses.
    • Spawns Voidlings, which drop Abyss Shards.
  • New class armors
    • Abyss Knight armor is the most protective armor in Undermagic, and also provides boosts to melee combat.
    • Abyss Ranger armor provides boosts to ranged combat and has stealth abilities.
  • New endgame boss: Shadesull
    • Extremely hard bullet hell boss. You will need to be extremely prepared to beat it.
    • No Lunatic drop just yet - wait for the next update!
  • Original boss music, composed by yours truly, for 2 of the bosses: Pit Lord and Shadesull (p1 and p2)
    • Demon King's Inferno: Theme of Pit Lord
    • In the Chamber of Madness: Theme of Shadesull (Phase 1)
    • Reign of the Corrupt: Theme of Shadesull (Phase 2)
New features:
  • New difficulty: Infernal!
    • Infernal difficulty is even harder than Lunatic, and has additional changes that completely revamp the boss fights.
  • New mob: Ender Wyrmlings!
    • Ender Wyrmlings spawn in small amounts throughout the End after the dragon is defeated. They also guard the ender crystals on Lunatic difficulty, and spawn in swarms on Infernal.
  • The Ender Dragon now drops Dragon Scales, which can be used to make armor alongside a bit of Dragon Breath. Dragon-Scale armor grants functioning wings!
Many changes have been made:
  • Updated to Minecraft 1.15. The pack is NOT backwards compatible anymore. Use an older version (Beta 18 or prior) if you wish to continue playing on 1.14.
  • Added new mobs:
    • Shadebeasts spawn at night rarely in the Overworld, and in large quantities at Shadow Rifts in the Nether. They attack from the shadows, blinding players and teleporting around.
    • The Shadebeast Alpha is a miniboss that spawns when you kill several Shadebeasts. It is a much stronger Shadebeast that can also fire dark orbs.
    • Salamanders spawn in the Nether near magma. They chase players and vomit fireballs. Baby Zombie Pigmen can also rarely spawn as Salamander Riders.
  • Added advancements for all three progression trees!
  • Added Teleporters and related objects: Locator Cards, Bound Locator Cards, and Recall Locator Cards. See the updated guide doc for details.
The magnificent, massive Undermagic Beta 18 has arrived!

The changelog is huge. I have made a separate google doc for it:
Undermagic Beta 18 Changelog

Thank you for playing Undermagic. I hope you enjoy the update.

Please do not hesitate to report bugs or make suggestions in my Discord server. Your feedback helps me improve my pack for you to enjoy.
A couple changes:
  • In the recipe for the Demon Portal Stabilizer, a Nether Star may now be used in place of a Demon Heart Stone.
  • The Blood Amalgam now has a minion cap: 8 on vanilla difficulties, 10 on Lunatic. Past this, no more minions will spawn.
