Bits might be the most valuable currency in Hypixel. You can spend them in Elizabeth's Community Shop for several items, allowing you to speed up your progress. However, before you can spend Bits, you must first farm a good chunk of them.
If you want to shop in Hypixel and need funds, you've come to the right place.
This article will show you how to get Bits in Hypixel. We'll walk you through different ways to get this currency, allowing you to purchase the Cosmetic Hologram, Thermal Core, and other exclusive items.
How to get bits in Hypixel
Bits were introduced in patch 0.9 and quickly became the driving force of power and magic in the Hypixel world. Getting them shouldn't be a problem for you:
- Go to the community center.
- Visit NPC Elizabeth and right click on her.
- Find the Cookie Booster.
- Purchase the Cookie Booster for 325 SkyBlock Gems to enable your character to acquire Bits.
- Consume your Cookie Booster and you can earn Bits for the next four days.
Besides letting you get this currency, the Cookie Booster also provides a bunch of handy buffs. The list includes a 20% EXP boost, 15% higher chance to find Magic and Permafly on private islands.
There are several ways to obtain this currency once you have consumed a Cookie Booster:
The first method is the easiest: all you have to do to earn Bits is play the SkyBlock game mode. Every 30 minutes you receive 250 bits, which continue until you reach your bit limit.
The number of Bits you can acquire depends on your Renown level. The 4 bit cap only applies to lower ranked players.
One of the best ways to get fame in Hypixel is to spend your SkyBLock Gems and Bits in the Community Store. A Bit spent gives you Fame, while a SkyBlock Gem gives you 200 Fame.
In addition to spending Gems or SkyBlock Bits in your Community Shop, you can donate various items to the Community Project. Tiers 1-3 give you 200 Fame Points, while Tier 4 items grant you 600 Fame Points.
The Dungeon Grind
The number of Bits that can be obtained by this second method depends on your Dungeon Floor difficulty level. For example, Floor 7 is currently the best option, awarding you 50 bits if you're at the lowest fame rank. Tier 6 is a bit less generous, granting you 20 bits if your fame level is minimal.
Kill the ender dragon
Another way to get Bits is by killing Ender Dragons. Killing this creature gives you 15 Bits, but you'll need to prepare properly for combat.
To make the fight more manageable, you need to craft diamond armor items, a bow with many arrows, and a diamond sword. The Netherite Sword and Armor combo is another option, but that would be overkill.
Ideally, your sword should have at least a level 3 sharpness enchantment and your bow's power enchantment should be level 3 or higher. The Infinity Enchantment for your bow is also a powerful asset.
Also be sure to bring plenty of dirt blocks. They allow you to build towers that can aid your aiming efforts. Some players also use water buckets, allowing them to land in water instead of taking damage from falling from their tower. Another way to remove this risk is to craft potions of slow fall.
You will also face a multitude of Endermen during your fight against Ender Dragon. If you can't look away from them, be sure to equip a Carved Pumpkin. It functions as a mask and allows you to stare at the Endermen without causing attacks.
All that preparation won't earn you any Bits unless you find the Ender Dragon. Here's how to locate the Ferocious Beast:
- Use the Eye of Ender to find a fortress. Once you activate the eye, it will fly up and search for the nearest stronghold. Keep following it and wait for it to fly lower. At this point, you'll be near the fortress, which means you should start digging.
- Locate the End Portal room and fill the border with 12 Eye of Enders. You will need less if some of the slots are already full.
- Jump through the portal to get to the location of the Ender Dragon.
Now is the time to defeat the ender dragon and finally earn your 15 bits. Here's what the fight usually looks like:
- Make dirt towers with your dirt blocks to reach the end crystals at the top of the obsidian towers.
- Aim crystals with cages, hover your cursor over them and smash until they disappear. Destroy the remaining crystals with your bow and arrows. If some of them are hard to reach, build your Dirt Towers higher. However, make sure to be away from them when the crystals are destroyed to avoid taking heavy damage.
- The dragon will now fly downward, allowing you to target its tail. Once it goes up, damage it with fire arrows.
- Keep shooting and slicing the Dragon until it dies. Remember to dodge his fireballs and use your Slow Falling Potion or Buckets of Water if he throws you into the air.
Defeat the Endstone Protector
The Endstone Protector is a boss that you can kill for 20 Bits. It spawns in various Dragon's Nest locations after you kill 5 Zealots on the server.
As the Endstone Protector is another formidable foe, you don't want to start the fight unprepared. Here's what you should equip if you're a melee:
- Enchantment Imbued Emerald Blade One For All
- Old elegant tuxedo
- Crown of Greed or Guardian Helm
- Legendary Golem Pet or Legendary Ender Dragon Pet
- Support Items: Manaflux/Plasmaflux Power Orb/Overflux and Weird Tuba
Mages are better off with the following build:
- Staff of Hyperion or Midas
- Necrotic Elegant Tuxedo
- Any helmet except Wither Goggles
- animal sheep
The Endstone Protector always spawns behind the Endstone Statue. It will attack the nearest player and quickly swing its arms, throwing them around and dealing a lot of damage. But since he can only target one character at a time, other players can hack the boss while he's distracted.
Another useful tactic is to neutralize his AOE attack which launches nearby grounded players into the air and deals true damage. The easiest way to avoid this attack is to jump right before the Endstone Protector executes it.
Once his 5 million HP bar drops to zero, he'll give you 20 Bits and a host of other fantastic items:
- Between one and 10 enchanted endstones
- An enchanted rose
- Up to two crystal fragments
- Up to a Golem Pet and Tier Boost Care
The gobelin raids will end
The Goblin Raid is a Dwarven Mines event that grants you 10 bits. Different types of goblins appear during this event, and your team must kill 1 of them to complete the mission.
The best strategy for participating in this event is to quickly approach the Superprotectrons and hit them. This tactic greatly increases your kill count.
Also, don't forget to kill Goblins inside Goblin Burrows. These enemies count towards your kill meter, making them a viable target for farming without worrying about other players. The only two types you should avoid are knife throwers and fire throwers, as taking them down won't get you any closer to your goal.
In addition to awarding you 10 Bits, the Goblin Raid also grants you mining experience, mithril powder, and the Heart of the Mountain experience. However, you will need to kill at least 25 goblins to earn these rewards. If you receive 100 points during the event, you will also unlock the Goblin Slayer achievement.
Hypixel SkyBlock How to get cookie bits?
The first step to earning Bits is to purchase and consume a Booster Cookie. Once you buy one from Elizabeth and use it, your pool of available Bits will increase to at least 4, depending on your fame level.
But as soon as you consume a Cookie Booster, you instantly receive 250 Bits or more. The bonus repeats every half hour of play, allowing you to go AFK and earn a large number of Bits.
What can you do with bits in Hypixel SkyBlock?
You should get as many Bits as possible in Hypixel SkyBlock for several reasons. Mainly, you can buy a myriad of powerful items with this currency. These include the Jumbo Backpack, Dungeon Bag, Cosmetic Hologram, and Colossal Experience Bottle.
You can also use Bits to perform faster experiments. They provide faster energy restoration for the breadboard, allowing you to get back to the action in less time.
On top of that, Bits can work as a massive contribution to community projects by feeding workers, thus granting you fame.
The scavenger hunt is on
Bits can give you a much smoother journey through the Hypixel world, whether through unique items or additional fame. Going to the AFK might be the safest way to get the currency, but it's nowhere near as fun as slaying dragons or completing the Goblin Raid. Along with giving away your Bits, these action-packed events offer amazing rewards and feature spectacular team battles.
