Mystery Dust is a currency used on Hypixel server for purchasing ("crafting") cosmetic items, such as Pets, Hats, gadgets but also to craft Mystery Boxes. Current mystery dust balance can be viewed using 'Collectibles' menu on any lobby by hovering over 'Collectibles' (chest item) on the very bottom of the menu. Or by entering the 'My Profile' menu (head item) on any lobby, and hovering over 'Character Information'.
Mystery Dust balance is not visible through '/stats' command or website stats.
When player receives duplicate item from Mystery Box, player will gain mystery dust instead. Amount of mystery dust is based on rarity of received item.
Mystery Dust can be also obtained by leveling up. First reward of mystery dust is 'Level 3' (5 mystery dust) and last is 'Level 98' (15 mystery dust). Reward is 5 (Levels 3 - 48, 10 times), 10 (Levels 53 - 88, 8 times) or 15 (93 - 98, 2 times) mystery dust.
Mystery dust can be used to craft majority of collectibles - Pets, Hats, Suits, Gadgets, Morphs, and emotes and gestures. However, not all collectibles can be crafted with mystery dust and must be obtained in another way, for example opening mystery vaults, purchasing them or receiving them as reward (gifts or Skywars ranked). Price of items is based on rarity of the item.
Mystery dust is also the only way how to craft special 'Crafted Mystery Boxes'. Currently, there are three crafted mystery boxes available, both contain only 'Legendary items'. Price is different for players with different ranks (Regular - 500 Mystery Dust, VIP/VIP+ - 250 Mystery Dust, MVP/MVP+ - 150 Mystery Dust) for boxes #1 and #2, and (Regular - 1000 Mystery Dust, VIP/VIP+ - 500 Mystery Dust, MVP/MVP+ - 300 Mystery Dust) for box #3. Items available in Crafted Mystery Boxes cannot be obtained in other way except for admin abuse.
