For Newcommers and Miners there will be new Spawn area. You can find a store and tutorial room right next to it.
Whole Benefits system has been reworked. With new spawn there has been built a new store area where you can buy things for new premium currency called Gems. You can buy Gems on cuberiastore.buycraft.net or directly at the Shopkeeper for real money. If you don't want to spend money for Gems you can get them for free using /vote command, you'll get 2 Gems for every vote and if you are VIP or Extra VIP you'll get free Gems daily. Then you can use them to buy VIPs Skins and other stuff.
