There are several new block types that can be created using the prismarine shards mined from ocean temples.

Given the fact the temples would have to be destroyed -- at least in part -- to obtain the non-renewable shards, prismarine blocks, sea lanterns and sponges, will the mining of them be against the rules like with fortresses?

OR and SR are considered resource worlds.  Unlike a Stronghold that contains no unique materials, the Ocean Monument contains new materials not gotten elsewhere that players will want/need.

From a staff prospective, they will be considered like a Mesa: highly sought after and quickly plundered.

Three important points:

  1. We'll make sure there are Mesas and Ocean Monuments in the OR
  2. Players will NOT be allowed to selfishly Claim these areas.
  3. Guardians will spawn in the Monument area, even after the Monument has been completely plundered and removed.  Heck, if what I'm seeing is correct, moving our 1.7 Arda to 1.8 will not generate Monuments in Arda, but Guardians will spawn in Arda where those monuments would have been generated. Laugh

Interesting. Wink It would be good to verify that once we're running.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experiences of others, are also remarkable for their disinclination to do so. - D. Adams

And a farm setup in these areas will supply enough shards to make prismarine over time so that should satisfy the prismarine needs

Basically
Guardians drop shards and crystals
shards can be crafted into prismarine blocks and dark prismarine
Crystals can be used to craft sea lamps as well as shards

If I find a temple in Arda can I claim it?. They make wonderful prefab bases

There will be no Ocean Monuments (temples) in Arda.  The most we would get is the Guardian spawning where a Monument would be.

I know sometimes an existing chunk wills till spawn one of it hasn't been loaded for a set amount of time. Possible that there may be one out there although not very likely. Just wanted to ask incase I encountered one

IF there is one in Arda, it (like other temples) will be Claimable.

Hm, like mooshrooms started spawning in Vetronia, even through there was no mushroom island. That would be great.

If this does not happen, what do think about a public guardian farm that provides enough of these new materials for everyone. But then the rules concerning the remaining natural temples can be more restrictive.
