Opening and CraftingEdit
Opening a mystery box will give you 1 random cosmetic item, a common, rare, epic, or legendary item. The 1-star box has the lowest chance of getting a rarer item, and the 5-star has the best chance. You can also craft these boxes using mystery dust. Mystery dust is obtained when you get an item you already have, not including pet items. You will get a varying amount of this dust depending on how rare the item you received a double of is. You can use this mystery dust to create a mystery box, there is only two out right now. At least 1 more boxes are planned to be released in the future; however, the date is not known yet. The price to create this mystery box varies depending on what rank you are:
Default - 500 Mystery Dust
VIP - 250 Mystery Dust
MVP - 150 Mystery Dust
You can also spend 2,000 Hypixel Credits to get a 3-star mystery box. This can be done 10 times a day(originally once per day).lol
