'''Byesford Castle''' is one of the most dangerous places in the [[Special:MyLanguage/MineZ|MineZ]] map. Several buttons are needed to loot it fully, but many of the chests do not require buttons. The castle is protected by many [[Special:MyLanguage/MineZ Mobs#Zombies|zombie]] spawners hidden in the walls. It is recommended to have good iron armor and health potions to get in the basement where the good loot spawns.

'''Byesford Castle''' is one of the most dangerous places on the [[Special:MyLanguage/MineZ|MineZ]] map. It is situated on an island with stone walls, the only two access points are through the dock on the Eastern side or through a hole on the Northeast. The castle is protected by many [[Special:MyLanguage/MineZ Mobs#Zombies|zombie]] spawners hidden in the walls and has one of the highest zombie populations in the game. It is recommended to have iron armor and plenty of health potions to get in the labs where the good loot spawns and zombie spawn rates are much lower. The dungeon [[Byesford Labs]] is located here.

Lore

Lore Block

  • The Lore Block here is located at the dining hall balcony.
It wasn’t until the gods delivered unto mortals the curse of the undead, mankind’s final penance and rulers, that this castle became a bastion for humanity.

Here scientists in Byesford’s highly advanced laboratories worked tirelessly to attempt to cure this infection; to stave off this curse.
But it was an act of sheer folly, and the dangerous experiments that were kept so carefully beneath the castle were let loose...
