This is a living document, I will update as often as I can
So you decided to join Dank Prison. Maybe you though it was cool or maybe.... Dank? Anyhow, congrats! This is one of the best prison servers available. There are many features, and it can all be very confusing. Hopefully, this guide will make a lot of things easier to understand.
Disclaimer: A lot of this is opinionated, so feel free to do things in whatever order you want to.
The very first thing you will have to do when you log in is take the rules quiz. I'm assuming that you have already done that, as the only way to access forums is through chat. This quiz serves a couple purposes
1. Prevents bots. You can't chat in the server until you have completed the quiz
2. Makes sure everyone knows the rules
When you have completed the quiz, make sure you look at the extended server rules. You can find those here:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=483https://dankpris ... ?f=8&t=483
Congrats! You can now talk and socialize with people on the server, as well as actually execute commands. Now what do you do?
Dank Prison has 3 custom games. They are slots, plinko, and Wheel of fortune. You start off with 3 plays for each of these. You will want to use these ASAP, as they have a chance to give you some pretty decent starting out gear. You can find them in the warp menu with /w, or you can warp directly to them.
Your first pick
You should start off with full common gear. Most of this is useless, so you can salvage it all (except the pick) with /sa. This will get you tokens. What are tokens, you might ask? Tokens are the currency used for enchanting. They are one of the most valuable currencies on the server.
Before you begin mining, get laser and autosell enchants. To enchant a pick, right click while holding it, or type /ce while holding it.
You now can begin mining. You will notice that your inventory will fill up rather quickly. This is normal. You will get a lot of crates. Most of these are useless, and just take up space atm. However, you can upgrade them to the next tier by combining 4 of them in the 2x2 crafting area. Once you have, lets say, a pure or ultra pure crate, open it. This will most likely give you a pick. You can use this pick to begin working towards the bigger crates. At this point, follow my enchant guide. You can find it here:
If you are in game, you can find the link with /zach
Dank prison has nearly infinite ranks! For example, we have regular rankups, from A-Free. We also have prestiges, p1-p100. BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE. We have masters, m1-m100. Lastly, we have champion ranks, c1-c100. What are masters and champions, you might ask?
Masters are the ranks after p100. Once you reach p100, you can prestige 1 more time and become m1, or master 1. This will open up many more possibilities within the game. How do you get to master 2? Well, you have to prestige 100 more times of course! You can see how this can stack up very quickly. m1 = p101, m2 = p202, etc. This means that for champion 1, you have to prestige over 10,000 times!
You can rankup with /rankup, but that's boring!
Use /mr to rankup to your max possible rank based on how much money you have
Want to know how much a certain rank costs?
This will tell you how much it costs from rank to rank. For example, you can do /rc p1 p2 to see how much it costs to rankup from p1 a to p2 a.
NOTE: You can only do prestige to prestige or master to master. Once you get to m1, it is only accurate for master to master, as prestiges cost more with each master.
We have all the regular mines, a-free. In addition, we have prestige mines! We have mines for players that are at least:
We also have master mines, for those who have reached a certain master rank:
There are also Champion mines for those of you that manage to get to C1 or M101
Champion 1 mine
We also have donor mines. These can only be access with donor ranks. Don't worry, this isn’t p2w. Donors get a couple perks, but donors don't have any kits. They have to work towards everything just like normal players
Udank+ get one or more pmines, to set them up do /spm in the private mine plot world on a plot you have claimed.
We have a very special mine called the dragon lair. This is a mine that is time limited. You must have lair time in order to mine here. It is one of the most profitable mines in the server.
There is also booster time. Booster time gives you 50% more money when you are in the dragon lair, as long as you have booster time and lair time.
If you ever need to see what the sell prices are at the mines, you can find the list at spawn.
You now have a lot of extra gear you don't need. What to do with it? If its dank or higher, you can save it and try to sell it on the AH when you reach m1. For everything else, you can salvage it for tokens. The commands are:
/salvage: salvages an individual item
/sa: salvages everything in you inventory that is salvageable
Dank prison has custom fishing as well! You still fish like in vanilla mc, but the loot is very different. You can get keys, crates, even a pet if you are lucky!
Fishing is a mid-late game mechanic. You need a lot of tokens (62.875M to be exact) to max out a fishing rod. It's not even worth fishing if you don't have a maxed rod.
Once you have begun fishing, there is a fishing rod enchant guide at the bottom of my pickaxe guide as well.
We have a custom autominer as well. To activate it is very simple. Just choose one of the 3 autominer rooms, hold you pick in your hand, and click the button. You can now be completely afk, while still progressing!
You must have autominer time to be able to use autominer. You can get time from voting, wof, plinko, slots, vote party crates, or from /buy
Autominer is not meant to be fast, you will not get nearly as much in autominer as you do by hand
Voting is very useful on dank prison. You get vote keys and autominer time. You also get vote points, which are very useful. Access the vote points shop with /vr. Here, you can buy lucky pet blocks (will give a random pet) or an artifact. Never get anything else, it is not worth it.
Artifacts are permanent upgrades you can add to your main pick. Make sure that you are only applying to your main pick, as they cannot be removed as of right now. You can get artifacts from mining, from /vr, or from /db (daily bonus). You can also buy them from David the archeologist, but in order to do that, you have to get artifact powder. Artifact powder can only be received by crushing artifacts. You crush an artifact by putting it into the 2x2 crafting area. This will give you a single artifact powder.
Sell artifact: 1% more money while holding the pick. Maximum of 15%, 100% at c1 or hardcore
Token artifact: 1% more tokens while holding the pick. Maximum of 15%, 100% at c1 or hardcore
Lucky block artifact: 1% more lucky blocks while holding the pick. Maximum of 15%, 100% at c1 or hardcore
Lucky block + artifact: 1% more lucky blocks while holding the pick. Maximum of 15%, 100% at c1 or hardcore
Sell artifact (fishing): 2% more money from fishing. Maximum of 50%.
Talents are another unique feature for dank prison. There are many talents. You can earn talent points by completing achievements. To sell all of the achievements, type /ach. To access your talent tree, type /tal. I suggest starting from the right side, and then working on the left once you have maxed the right side.

AH is only available once you have reached master 1. Until then, you are on your own, sorry. This is to make sure you know a decent amount about the server. Only certain items can be sold on the AH. To see if an item is sellable, hold the item and do /value. This will tell you the price before the 10% tax if the item is sellable. If it is not sellable, it will tell you that as well. All items have set prices, so you don't choose how much to sell it for. You simply hold the item and do /ah sell.
Lucky blocks are similar to crates, except much rarer. They are found by mining or fishing. You can get regular, or + variants of lucky blocks, just like keys. You can also combine 4 regular lucky blocks into 1 + variant. The percentage is randomized, but you can increase that percentage through talents, gang perks, gang stats, and artifacts. If you want the full list of items from lucky blocks, you can find them in /cw.
Convoys are a great way to get keys and crates, as well as sunflowers. You can only get sunflowers through convoys, which makes them very valuable.
Every 20 minutes, a broadcast message will announce that a convoy is coming down. It will give you the exact coordinates. After 2 minutes, the convoy will land, and anyone can grab it. Be careful, because if you become combat tagged, you will not be able to pick up the convoy. If the convoy has not been picked up within 5 minutes of landing, it will disappear.
Convoys are the only way to get sunflowers. A regular convoy will always give you 1 sunflower, and a convoy+ will give you 2. You can then right click these, or take them to Convoy Bob at spawn to trade in. You can trade in for these items:
3 gems: 1 flower
Sell artifact: 50 flowers
Token Artifact: 25 flowers
Lucky Block artifact: 25 flowers
Lucky Block+ artifact: 35 flowers
Showcase is a great way to show off your tools and armor to your friends. In your showcase you can have:
1 Chest plate
1 Fishing rod
Adding items to your showcase is easy. You just hold it in your hand and type /showcase add. Your showcase also shows what pets you have in your pet backpack, if it is available. To see someone else's showcase, simply type /showcase (name).
Linking items is another great way to show off stuff to the entire server. Simply hold the item and type /link. This will create a message in chat "Player has linked item". People can hover over this to see the item and lore.
Item-ing works the same way, except you can implement it into messages. For example, you could say "Look at this cool sword [item]" and it will post both the item and the message.
Plots are a great way to have fun building, or store items that you can't fit into your /pv 1. To get wood and other blocks, simply go to /shop. Everything is free!
Plots are free. If you can't find a plot, you can just fly and keep flying until you get to one. When you get there, you can do /p claim to claim it. Players receive 1 more plot every 10 prestige's, up to 12 plots available at m1.
You are not able to add anyone to your plot. This is to prevent boosting and sharing of items.
There are dozens of tags available to players. You unlock them by completing achievements. You can access tags with /tags. The categories are:
Play time tags
I saw this really cool tag, but can't find it? Well then, it is a custom tag. Donors who are at least Ultra Dank rank get the ability to create custom tags for themselves. That is one of the donor perks.
You can join a gang at any point. However, you must be at least p50 to create a gang. Gangs do not cost anything to create. There are many different perks to joining a gang, and no downsides.
Perks do cost money to upgrade. You can deposit money into your gang bank with /g deposit. Once it has been deposited, no one can take it out, not even the leader, so deposit wisely.

Coinflip is the one gambling feature we have on dank prison. To add a money bet, do /bet (amount). For a token bet, do /tbet (amount).
When you look in /cf, you will see all active bets, as well as seeing your net gain or loss for money and tokens. The maximum token bet is 500M tokens, that way you can't lose or win everything based on a single flip.
