Donator Ranks

Ranks (Updated)

All of the following ranks can be purchased for permanent in the Hypixel Store. Each rank unlocks various exclusive cosmetic features both on the Hypixel Server and on the Hypixel Forums.

Your current rank’s value is automatically deducted from any future rank upgrade. This upgrade price automatically appears upon browsing the rank store.

Example: An upgrade from [MVP] to [MVP+] will cost $15.00 USD instead of $44.99 USD when there are no sales.

Donators do not receive any in-game advantages, only pure cosmetics and what seem like in-game advantages but not in-game advantages.
