How to Get Gold in Hypixel
Gold is Hypixel’s in-game currency used to buy various cosmetic items, ranks, and SkyBlock Gems. In other words, it’s a valuable resource that can help you level up quicker and look cooler. If you’re wondering how to obtain it, we’re here to help.
In this guide, we’ll explain how to get Gold in Hypixel. Additionally, we’ll share tips for obtaining Gold Medals, Gold Essence, Golden Apples, and other Golden items in the game. Read on to discover where to get the necessary resources.
How to Get Gold in Hypixel
Gold can’t be obtained through gameplay and must be purchased in Hypixel’s official store with real-life money. At the time of writing, 1,000 Gold costs $10.
How to Get a Gold Medal in Hypixel
Medals in Hypixel can be earned by competing in Jacob’s Farming Contests. These contests take place once per three SkyBlock days and last for 20 minutes. You need to have at least Farming Level 10 and talk to Jacob at least once to participate. He can be found in the Farmhouse. You’ll receive a Gold Medal if you belong to the top 5% of contest participants.
Certain tips can increase your odds of becoming an award-winning contest player.
For example, Pumpkin, Melon, and Sugarcane farming are the hardest to get Gold in, as they typically have the most participants. Also, data shows that the lowest player count hours are 2 to 3 a.m. EST, so obtaining Gold Medal during that time could be easier. Lastly, to max out your farming efficiency, ensure that your farms have no missing spots.
Once you’ve obtained a couple of Gold Medals, you can invest them into better farming tools that will help you get more Gold Medals.
For instance, Mathematical Hoes grant you +50% Harvest of Wheat, Potato, Carrot, Sugarcane, or Nether Warts. Melon and Pumpkin Dicers can give you extra Melons or Pumpkins when farming, and Coco Chopper prevents Wood from breaking and replants Cocoa Beans.
How to Get Golden Apples in Hypixel
A Golden Apple is an object present in Vanilla Minecraft which has little to no purpose in SkyBlock, but it looks nice. Perhaps, you could make a great house decoration? If you’re wondering how to obtain a Golden Apple, the answer is simple – craft it. The recipe is as follows:
- Find an Apple.
- Gather eight Gold Inglots. They can be made from one Gold mined from Gold Ore or obtained from Gold Minions. Alternatively, make one Gold Ingot from nine Gold Nuggets. You’ll need 72 Golden Nuggets to make a single Golden Apple.
- Craft a Golden Apple from one Apple and eight Golden Inglots.
How to Get Gold Dust in Hypixel
Golden Dust, also known as Golden Powder, is a Legendary Loot resource necessary to craft an Ornate Zombie Sword. It can only be obtained by killing Golden Ghouls, such as Zombie Knights in The Catacombs. Furthermore, not every kill will grant you the desired Golden Dust. The drop rate is 1-2,000 chance of getting Dust. Golden Powder can also be traded, but the odds of someone willing to sell such a rare item are low.
Hypixel Pit How to Get Gold Sword?
The Golden Sword in Hypixel Pit is a mythic item, which means obtaining one isn’t simple. Mythic items are randomly dropped from kills, and the odds are extremely low. Data gathered from a 1,000-kill streak suggests the odds are lower than 0.3%. However, you can raise the chances by getting the Mysticism Renown upgrade. You can purchase Renown upgrades in the Renown Shop, and your number of Renowns depends on your Prestige, which can be earned by leveling up. To max out your Mysticism, you’ll need to spend 65 Renown in total.
How to Get Gold Prestige in Hypixel Skywars
With every level-up in Skywars, you get Prestige. At first, you’ll only get Iron Prestige, which may seem unfair if you’ve had many wins or made many kills. But every type of Prestige is awarded for specific levels rather than the number of wins and kills.
Golden Prestige is awarded at Levels 10-14. After you reach Level 15, you’ll receive Diamond Prestige. At Level 20, you’ll get Emerald. From Leve 25 onward, it’s Sapphire, Ruby, Crystal, Opal, Amethyst, and finally, Rainbow. So, at every five levels, you receive a new type of Prestige.
How to Get Gold Essence in Hypixel Skyblock
Gold Essence is a collectible in Hypixel necessary for upgrading some Dungeon items.
The first way to obtain Gold Essence is to defeat King Midas, a mini-boss you can find on floors three to seven of The Catacombs. Bear in mind that he wears Golden Armor with high Defense stats. Apart from Gold Essence, King Midas also drops Midas’ Jewel.
The second way to get the desired Gold Essence is to defeat Watcher Summons on the fifth floor of The Catacombs. You’ll need to use the Golden modifier to do so.
Lastly, you can receive Gold Essence by defeating some mobs, such as Zombie Knights. They can also be found in The Catacombs. However, the odds of groups dropping Gold Essence are low. Either way, you’ll need to head to The Catacombs to obtain the Gold Essence.
A Pot of Gold
