Cache update bughunter contest

by Mike » Sat Jul 04, 2020 4:34 pm

I know that everyone is really excited about our next major upcoming feature: the Chambers of Xeric. However, development on this new addition has stalled recently. After doing a whole lot of work to get the framework for the chambers done, actually implementing every single room is a task where we hardly know where to begin and haven't found the courage to start on yet. Not to worry, it's still coming in the near future, just not as fast as we'd all hoped.

At least there is one piece of good news that I can bring today, which is that I have once again updated our cache to the most recent version of OSRS, allowing us to add new features that have been introduced in OSRS in the past year.
Because of this cache update, we are now working on two more additions that our community are most certainly looking forward to: The Nightmare of Ashihama (who is known to drop Nightmare staffs and Inquisitor equipment) and the Basilisk Knights (that are known to drop Basilisk jaws to create the Neitiznot faceguard). We'll also be sure to add the Gauntlet in a future update (after CoX and the Inferno).

However, before we actually release this new cache on our live server, I first want to make sure that everything in the game still works as intended. To that end, I have set up a new test server which you can access by downloading our latest stand-alone testclient here: link.

This cache update has brought a lot of changes in NPC ID's and obect ID's, as well as some parts of the world map since the last time we did this kind of major cache update in May 2019. That's why we are organizing a bughunter contest on our testserver to ensure there will be no bugs when we release the new cache on the live server.

To participate, simply download our portable testclient and test as many of our current features as possible to see if anything has stopped working because of the new cache. If you find any bugs (that are otherwise not a bug on the live server), please report it as a reply on this topic. Make sure to include your game username in one of your bug reports so I know where to add the credits at the end of the contest.
The most important things to look for are objects (PoH furniture, rocks, trees, banks, just to name some), NPC's (wrong spawns, wrong drops, NPC's you cannot properly interact with ...) and noclipping checks that might have become broken.

Please note that this new cache brings no actual changes to the game yet. It's simply a necessary preparation so that we can start adding new features, such as the Nightmare of Ashihama, Basilisk Knights and the Gauntlet.

A couple of things to test (so you have an idea what to look for):
Spoiler: show
  • The skilling center (all NPC's and objects)
  • Pest Control
  • Castle Wars
  • Duel Arena (+ forfeiting)
  • Zombie minigame
  • Fight caves
  • Barrows & risky barrows
  • Agility shortcuts
  • All skills
  • All bosses (killing each one just once should be enough)
  • All shops
  • All quests and achievements
  • All other NPC's that you can interact with, such as the Doomsayer
Some useful commands on the testserver:
Spoiler: show
::item <itemid> <amount> (spawn items with id itemid). Check our items list to get the ID's of items, or use the ::item command with (part of) an item name as argument to find ID's. For example '::item cannon' will list all items with their ID that have 'cannon' in the name
Note that the items from OSRS that we don't have available on PkHonor yet (such as the twisted bow) don't work properly yet. So no need to report bugs related to items that can only be obtained by spawning.
::adminset (spawn really strong items)
::master (get level 99 in all skills)
::noob (set all skills to 1)
::tele <x> <y> (teleport to x y)
::xplus <x> (move x squares east)
::xmin <x> (move x squares west)
::yplus <y> (move y squares north)
::ymin <y> (move y squares south)
::spec (restore spec bar)
::food (spawn rocktails)
::pkpoints (give yourself 500 pkpoints)
::slaypoints (give yourself 500 slayer points)
::ancient (switch to the ancient spellbook)
::lunar (switch to the lunar spellbook)
::normal (switch to the regular spellbook)
::prayer (switch between regular prayerbook & ancient curses)
::pray (regain full prayer points)
::bank (bank anywhere)
::xrich (spawn max coin stack)
::strset (spawn some melee items)
::rangeset (spawn some ranger items)
::ach (to complete or reset all achievements)
::q1, ::q2 and ::q3 (to complete or reset the quests Pest Invasion, The Last Journey and Correcting History)
The contest will be ongoing until 11 July 2020, unless new bugs are still being reported close to the deadline, in which case we may extend it.

Bughunter contest ends in:



Bughunter contest rules & guidelines
  • Whenever you encounter an in-game bug, make a post about it as a reply to this thread. Please try to be as specific as possible so we can reproduce the bug.
  • Make sure you include your in-game username in one of your bug reports, so I know where to add the credits (if you never state your in-game name in any reports, you will be excluded from the contest).
  • The first person to report a bug gets the points for it.
  • Known bugs or bugs that are also present in the live production server do not result in any points.
  • Please report one bug per post to prevent people from cheating by editing their old posts. This means double posting in this thread is allowed.
  • When two or more people work together to find a bug , they all get the full amount of points for it.
  • You get points based on the severity of a bug:
    - 1 point for minor bugs, visual glitches & unintended pvm safespots.
    - 2 points for relatively minor bugs, things that don't work or wrong ID's (for example an NPC having the wrong ID or being spawned in the wrong place).
    - 3 points for general bugs.
    - 4 points for major bugs.
    - 5 points for game-breaking bugs.
    - 10 points for dupes or massive exploits.
The rewards are as follows:
Spoiler: show
#1 - 10,000 credits
#2 - 5,000 credits
#3 - 3,000 credits

20 June Updates: Zulrah improvements

by Thoby » Sat Jun 20, 2020 1:26 pm

Image Zulrah Improvements Image


Lately we have been getting some feedback on Zulrah's lackluster droptable. In many cases players even reported that they would lose wealth because of supplies. Zulrah was given a mediocre droptable because it's a safe boss (meaning you don't lose your items upon death). However, in today's update we have revisited Zulrah to give it some additional attention!


Image






Auto-attacking
Since the update on the 2nd of May 2019, a player will now continue to attack Zulrah after it submerges. This is deemed helpful for many players, but we have heard complaints about players preferring the original mechanic- of not automatically targeting Zulrah (to provide time to properly position yourself, without getting pulled away). That's why you are now able to toggle this setting at Priestess Zul-Gwenwynig (the Npc that boards you to Zulrah's shrine, in Zul-Andra), enabling or disabling this mechanic for Zulrah specifically.



Image





Pathing
The pathing around Zulrah's shrine was quite buggy, where players would not path around the pillars in their way.
This update fixes this, and makes it so pathing for several bosses has been improved.
Hopefully this will be a noticeable difference!





Droptable
Since Zulrah remains a safe boss, we do not want it to follow OSRS and blatantly make it one of the best sources of gold in the game.
We have generally improved the droptable slightly, but we want to focus on improving the droptable with some new custom unique drops!


Image Serpentine jar & Magma jar
Two fairly rare new jars have been added to Zulrah's droptable. Instead of their mutagen counterpart, they are used to upgrade the Toxic blowpipe. Upgrading a Toxic blowpipe will require an additional 17,000 Zulrah's scales. These jars are both tradeable.



Image




Image Serpentine blowpipe & Magma blowpipe
Using any of the two jars on a Toxic blowpipe will change it visually. Additionally, these upgraded blowpipes offer a 10% chance of not consuming ammo when fired, and a +2 ranged attack bonus over their regular counterparts. This makes it a very interesting upgrade for those who often use a blowpipe.

The two upgraded blowpipes are identical in effect and bonus, and only differ visually (so it's up to preference). They are tradeable when uncharged.



Image




Image Flax
Since the community yearns for some Flax, we have made sure that Zulrah now also drops Flax!
So ehm... yeah... Flax!


Image Clue scrolls
As pointed out by the community, Zulrah rarely drops clue scrolls.
This has been fixed, and it now is 8 times more likely to drop a clue scroll on death.
This was because usually bosses have an improved clue scroll rate, which was missing for Zulrah.







Furthermore...
  • The YouTuber rank has been fixed. The rank seemed to collide with the Ironman rank, making our first YouTuber - Iron Prod2 - unable to wield the rank.
  • When zooming into your character, you will now target the head instead of the feet.
  • The Clan chat icons in your chat box will now have a dark outline. This will make them more visible.
  • The spellbook has slightly been resized, to primarily be on the top side of the spell book.
  • With the 'Show text above ground items' option enabled, the items in the distance are now more see-through then the ones near the player. This will make it easier to orient yourself on where the items are.
  • It's now possible to enable Runelite's mouse tooltips. This is currently purely cosmetic, but will contain more additional information in the future.


And that's all for today! I hope you enjoy today's update and have a wonderful day. 'Till next time!

28 May Updates: Bugfixes

by Thoby » Thu May 28, 2020 10:47 pm

This update is partially a follow-up on the 24 May update, but also includes some new additions:



Nylocas room improvements
Since the release of Nylocas, we have gotten feedback on their timing and how it's essentially different from the way we handle it.
Today's update should fix that, as the Nylocas now dynamically progress according to the room's capacity.
This makes it possible for advanced teams to clean out the room quicker and compete for faster times.
Feedback on these changes is highly appreciated!




Image






Kill Milestone Discord Messages
Inspired by James' suggestion, we have added in Kill Milestone Discord messages!
This will be a message in the #game-feed channel whenever a player achieves 1000, 2000, 3000, ... (etc) amount of kills.
The killed player and the K/D ratio will also be mentioned. Any other PvP suggestions are more than welcome!


Image





And in other news...
  • The agility shortcut in the Revenant caves at level 22 wilderness has been fixed.
  • Honor accounts are no longer announced in Discord.
  • Wrath runes within a Rune pouch will now be displayed in the spellbook.
  • For ironmen, the Spirit Shields have been removed from the PkPoint Exchange Shop.
  • Vesta's, Statius', Zuriel's and Morrigan's will now once again provide PkHonor Points upon death. This was caused by them being removed from the shop.
  • For ironmen, the Burnt pages have been added to the PkPoint Exchange Shop for 10 PkHonor points each. This is done so ironmen do not depend on periodical Tome of fire loot.
  • The Level-1 jewelry enchantment spell now works again, used to charge sapphire jewelry.
  • The variety in drops of the Revenants has been improved. This means that they will drop items more often, but in lower quantities. Profit per hour should remain about the same.
  • A longtime bug has been fixed where certain names on your friends or ignore list showed up wrong or were transformed into a completely random name.
  • UIM now get the proper message when using items on the Refund box keeper
  • Music will now be set to AUTO upon your first login. Your selected music mode will now also be properly highlighted in the tab.
  • The Ancient Artefacts are now tradeable and dropped on death.
  • Fixed the bug in which players were not able to directly cast the surge spells on other players.
  • You can now left-click the animators in the Warriors' guild. It will then use the highest tier equipment set.

24 May Update: Revenants, Surge spells & Music!

by Thoby » Sun May 24, 2020 7:39 pm

Image Revenants, Surge spells & Music! Image


While working on the Chambers of Xeric, we decided to take a little detour and add some exciting new things along the way. We were actually aiming to release this a little bit sooner, preferably matching my own 9 year anniversary, but some additional things were added and needed some more testing. Nonetheless, grab a snack, sit back and let's see what this update has to offer!





Revenant Caves
The OSRS Revenant Caves have been added! They can be accessed through two entrances: one at level 17 Wilderness (east of the Bandit Camp), and the other in level 40 Wilderness (just south-east of the Lava Maze). An alternative way of getting into the caves is by using the Revenant cave teleport, which is dropped by the Revenants themselves or can be bought for 25 PkHonor points from the PkHonor Exchange Shop (at ::shops). These teleport scrolls provides the option to teleport to either entrance, or directly into the Revenant room.



Image



This update comes with a range of new items:

Image Revenant ether
A guaranteed drop from any of the Revenants in the Revenant caves. It can be used to charge different items, like the Bracelet of ethereum and the Revenant weaponry: the Craw's bow, Thammaron's sceptre and Viggora's chainmace. Revenant ether is always dropped on death, even when it is stored as charges within the weapons or bracelet. Having Bounty Hunter enabled increases the amount of ether dropped by 25%.


Image Craw's bow
The Craw's bow is a shortbow that gets dropped by any of the Revenants in the Revenant caves. The bow requires level 60 Ranged to wield. The bow requires Revenant ether charges to be fired and provides its own ammo (similar to the Zaryte bow and Crystal bow). An additional 50% ranged accuracy and 50% ranged damage bonus is applied to any monster in the Wilderness. The bow will consume 1 ether charge per attack in any situation.

The bow can be activated using 1,000 revenant ether (these do not count towards the charges yet, and only 'activate' the bow). After using 1,000 ether, you can add additional ether to charge the bow (up to 16,000 charges). Upon death, any revenant ether will be dropped to the ground, even if the bow itself is protected.


Image Thammaron's sceptre
The Thammaron's sceptre is a magical weapon that gets dropped by any of the Revenants in the Revenant caves. The sceptre requires level 60 Magic to wield. The sceptre requires Revenant ether charges to be used. While the sceptre is charged with Revenant ether, an additional 100% magic accuracy and 25% magic damage bonus is applied to any monster in the Wilderness, consuming 1 ether per attack.

The sceptre can be activated using 1,000 revenant ether (these do not count towards the charges yet, and only 'activate' the sceptre). After using 1,000 ether, you can add additional ether that will be used to charge the sceptre (up to 16,000 charges). Upon death, any revenant ether will be dropped to the ground, even if the sceptre itself is protected.


Image Viggora's chainmace
The Viggora's chainmace is a magical weapon that gets dropped by any of the Revenants in the Revenant caves. The chainmace requires level 60 Attack to wield. The chainmace requires Revenant ether charges to be used. While the chainmace is charged with Revenant ether, an additional 50% melee accuracy and 50% melee damage bonus is applied to any monster in the Wilderness, consuming 1 ether per attack.

The chainmace can be activated using 1,000 revenant ether (these do not count towards the charges yet, and only 'activate' the chainmace). After using 1,000 ether, you can add additional ether that will be used to charge the chainmace (up to 16,000 charges). Upon death, any revenant ether will be dropped to the ground, even if the chainmace itself is protected.


Image Ancient artefacts
Ancient artefacts are a VERY rare drop from any of the Revenants. These Ancient artefacts can be brought to the Emblem trader (which is just north-west of the Revenant chamber) to trade them for 100M tickets. The highest tier artefact (the Ancient Relic) is worth 10 billion coins! The artefacts are always dropped on death, even if it's the only item in the player's inventory.

Since this update has brought quite a few new items to the Ironman hard clue scroll rewards and the Wilderness generally is no place for Ironmen, we have decided that when ironman hand in any ancient artefact they also get a roll on the Ironman hard clue scroll reward table. This will make Revenants a fairly good source of any of the Hard clue scroll rewards, and will hopefully compensate for the lower rate of Ex-ex parrots.


Image Bracelet of ethereum
The Bracelet of ethereum is a unique drop from the Revenants in the Revenant Caves. Players can charge the bracelet with revenant ether, and can hold up to 16,000 ether. When charged, the bracelet becomes untradeable and makes the player immune to damage from revenants, with 1 charge being consumed per attack against you. Revenants are also unaggressive when a charged bracelet is worn. The uncharged bracelet can be dismantled in return for 250 revenant ether.

The bracelet is always lost on death, and any Revenant ether stored within it will be dropped as well. Thus, it is recommended not to place too many charges in the bracelet, as player killers will always receive the remaining ether within it as loot upon death.

Players can right-click the Toggle-absorption option on the bracelet to automatically absorb revenant ether from defeated revenants. Also, upon completion of the Wilderness PvM achievements, the Bracelet of ethereum will only have a 50% chance of consuming Revenant ether.


Image Revenant cave teleport
The Revenant cave teleport is a drop from the Revenants in the Revenant Caves.
The Revenant cave teleport scroll can also be bought from the PkHonor Exchange shop for 25 PkHonor points.
It can be used to teleport to several Revenant locations:


Image


Image Wrath runes
The Revenants are currently the only source of the newly introduced Wrath runes. These runes can be used to cast Surge spells in the Normal spellbook. Read more about them in the dedicated chapter!


Revenant hunting
We listened to the community and their request for keeping the original Revenant minigame. We decided to leave the existing Revenants to wander the Wilderness like before! However, they have been renamed to 'Lost Souls' and the corresponding lore has been slightly altered. Other than their name and lore, the minigame itself remains untouched.





Image In-game music!
An addition nobody may have seen coming: PkHonor now has in-game music! We tried to cover most areas, but feel free to let us know if any areas are missing their corresponding music. The music volume can be altered in the settings tab, using the slider:


Image


There's not much more I can say about this, but believe me when I say that this required a bunch of engine work 😉 Hope you enjoy it!






Hybrid equipment & Castle Wars
In recent years, Castle Wars has not been as active as we had hoped. The minigame is often played incorrectly, primarily just by running flags for countless hours. Players who actually want to play the minigame like it's supposed to, dislike this flag running. We have tried fixing this issue in the past, but it mostly comes down to the same thing; the lack of players playing the minigame. Running flags essentially isn't possible when there's a line of defense that blocks a runner's way, and mostly only happens when ~4 players are in the minigame.

A result of this is that the Castle Wars equipment (Vanguard, Battle-mage and Trickster equipment) is limited to those who have either obtained them through incorrectly playing the minigame or farming the minigame with a clan (which is not allowed). Only a select few have obtained the equipment by properly playing the minigame. This is not something we want to see from a design perspective; the best-in-slot equipment sets should not solely be locked behind a broken piece of content.

So we decided to add the Castle Wars tickets to the PkHonor Point Exchange Shop, where you can now buy the tickets for 20 PkHonor points each! Castle Wars will still be the absolute best way of obtaining Castle Wars tickets, but their availability in the PkHonor Point Exchange shop provides an alternative way of obtaining this equipment by playing any aspect of the game. This will make the grind more enjoyable, as a player can choose whatever route they prefer (either by skilling, PvP, hunting the WildyWyrm, etc). Keep in mind that this roughly translates to 94,000 PkHonor Points per set, which is an amount that only a select few currently have. So don't expect everyone running around in Hybrid equipment anytime soon.

We believe the two biggest benefits of this decision are as follows:
  • Castle Wars will become more active as more players will obtain the Hybrid equipment (which still needs to be charged inside the minigame), so players will choose to play the minigame more often. The Hybrid equipment is also primarily charged by combat, which should stop flag running.
  • The demand for PkHonor points will increase. Currently PkHonor points aren't too valuable late game content. Players outgrow their need after getting Chaotic weaponry and unlocking the quests and curses. These Castle Wars tickets will increase the demand in the late game, so players will remain motivated to collect PkHonor points. Aside from that, this will also increase the demand for anything that converts into PkHonor points upon death; adding additional ways of earning money for newer players.
However, the Hybrid equipment did need some additional balancing. We have discussed this with several veteran players who have the Hybrid armour themselves, and we came to the following changes:
  • The refund price of the Hybrid equipment pieces has been increased to 1 billion coins per piece. It used to be 300m, which just isn't enough for its insane equipment bonuses.
  • Upon death, each of the Hybrid equipment pieces will lose 10% charge, similair to Nex equipment.
If you have any feedback, feel free to let us know! This is all subject to change, but hopefully a step in the right direction.

We have also tweaked the Castle Wars minigame to reward winning the minigame. 'Running flags' will no longer be a viable method of obtaining tickets. The best source of points is simply winning the match. This will hopefully stimulate competition between parties, and reward parties for teamwork instead of limiting rewards to the player that captures the flag.


Image








Refund box keeper
Since we have received several refunds in the past because of ambiguity between which items go to the refund box, and which do not, we decided there should be a better way of checking this. It's now possible to use any item on the Refund box keeper (in Edgeville or Varrock), he will then inform you whether the item will go to your refund box, in which situation and for which price.

This will hopefully prevent players from losing their favorite items and provide some more clarity on newly added items.

Some other changes to the refund box:
  • The Royal seed pod will now go to the refund box for 100m coins.
  • Like mentioned above, the Castle Wars Hybrid equipment (Vanguard, Battle-mage and Trickster) now have a refund price of 1 billion coins per piece. Originally, they were only 300m per piece.
Image






Spellbook rework & Surge spells!
We managed to rebuild the entire Spellbook system, which now makes it possible to easily add, change or delete spells. This means: Surge spells! We have also added the "Lvl-7 Enchant" spell to enchant zenyte jewelry. The Revenants in the Revenant caves now drop Wrath runes, which can be used to cast the new surge spells from the Normal spellbook. These are incredibly effective in PvP, especially when used with the newly introduced Tome of Fire.


Image


The other spellbooks should also have improved, having a better layout and giving more responsive feedback to clicks. Alongside that, the Miasmic spells have been removed. These simply haven't been used for years, and were an annoyance to PvP'ers who were used to the Ancient spellbook layout in OSRS.

Alongside these new spells, the Glacors, Ice Strykewyrms and Frost dragons now have a weakness to Fire spells (Fire surge, Fire wave, Fire blast, Fire bolt and Fire strike). This will increase your damage output with +80%, almost doubling your hits. This will be the new meta for these monsters.


Image








PkHonor Exchange Shop
We decided to remove the PvP armour from the PkHonor Exchange Shop. This includes Vesta's, Statius', Morrigan's and Zuriel's equipment. The armour is not discontinued and can still be obtained through killing Lost Souls throughout the Wilderness. However, they will no longer be as easily accessible through the shop. This change means that the Wise old man now requires a Fighter torso instead. This is our first step towards rebalancing PvP - feedback is highly appreciated.

In return, new items were added to the PkHonor Exchange shop! The Castle Wars tickets were added (read more about them in the dedicated chapter), and several different ornaments can now be purchased. The Obsidian armour has also been added. This is a melee armour set which requires 60 defence to wear. When all 3 pieces are equipped, all obsidian weaponry will be given a 10% boost in melee accuracy and melee strength. This stacks with the Berserker necklace bonus.


Image





Bounty Hunter Changes
We really wanted to work on the Bounty Hunter minigame. The minigame is really part of the Wilderness, so requires extra care. First off, we added a completely new HUD interface when you have Bouny Hunter activated. The HUD shows some more information, including the tier of emblem your target is carrying. This HUD can be toggled in the newly designed quest tab.


Image


Alongside the new interfaces, more rewards were added to the Bounty Hunter store:

ImageImage Tome of Fire
The Tome of fire is a book held in place of a shield and requires level 50 Magic to wield. The tome can be charged with burnt pages to act as a source of fire runes whilst equipped. Each page adds 20 charges to the tome and it can hold up to 1,000 pages. If a charge (1/20 or more) is consumed and the page is removed, the entire page will be consumed. Casting fire spells with a charged Tome of fire equipped will increase the spell's damage by 50% (multiplicative bonus on top of magic damage bonus) and consume one charge. This can be extremely helpful when using the new Fire surge spell. Casting a non-combat spell requiring fire runes will not consume any charges.

ImageImageImage Imbued god capes
The Imbued god capes are powerful Magic capes. They provide +2% magic damage, +15 magic attack and +15 magic defence. The cape is tradeable, contrary to the OSRS counterpart.

Image Ring of Vigour (i)
Not a direct addition to the shop, but now accessible by combining two Ring of Vigours with a Ring imbue scroll. When worn, this ring saves 15% special attack usage. This could be a very interesting tool, and will also make the regular Ring of Vigour more useful and sought after. Not only does it have uses in PvP, but also ToB parties will find these useful. The BH-point price of the regular Ring of Vigour has been increased to reflect the ring's new usage.






The YouTuber rank
As mentioned in February’s developer blog, we started exploring the possibility of adding the YouTuber rank. Since then, we have been working out how exactly the rank will be implemented and managed. We’re happy to announce that from today, players who regularly post high-quality videos will have the option to be awarded the YouTuber rank!

How can I obtain the rank?
The rank will be awarded to those who meet our criteria. However, you will not be able to apply for the rank, similar to the way our current helper rank works. Youtuber ranks will be awarded by Ely & me (Thoby). We’ll continually watch the latest PkHonorvideos and keep ou the lookout for new YouTubers, provided you meet the following requirements:
  • Already have created 3+ videos on PkHonor.
  • Post frequently. At least 2 videos every month.
  • Maintain good overall quality (Editing, Good quality and audio)
  • Be an ambassador of PkHonor by following our rules and upholding our values.
The current benefits to players who have obtained the rank are as follows:
  • Youtube icon in-game in front of your name
  • Youtuber displayed on the forums under your avatar, however your forums colour will not change.
  • Videos posted into the #featured-media discord channel.
  • The ability to yell in-game (if you do not have donator rank yet)
We will always be looking for ways in which we can support YouTubers and help produce higher exposure for the videos they make.
It's worth noting that the rank itself will have no benefits in-game.

Tip: Posting your videos in the In-game media section will increase your exposure. However, we will be keeping up to date with the latest videos posted to YouTube too ;)





Discord Announcements
Inspired by Brant's suggestion, there now is Discord Integration. In-game announcements, such as big drops/loot (over 15B) or significant HCIM deaths will now display a message in the Discord #general chat. If it is deemed too spammy, we can always look into changing the rates or displaying the messages in another channel!

If you haven't joined our Discord yet, this is a wonderful time to do so. We show a bunch of sneak peeks of upcoming content and you can chill and have a chat with other players. Join here!

The Dragon Defender has been obtainable from the Kalphite Queen since its release. However, since this did not age too well, and is fairly confusing; we moved the Dragon Defender to the Cyclops in the Warriors' Guild. However, it is still only accessible after completing 26 Wise Old Man achievements (like the Dragon Defender from the KQ). Also, when all Wise Old Man achievements have been completed, their droprate doubles. The Dragon defender can no longer be alched.

The Dragon Defender remains on the KQ droptable, but instead is advertised in dialogue to primarily come from the Warriors' Guild. To compensate for the lost unique dro, the Kalphite Queen now also drops the Dragon defender ornament kit, which can be used to trim a Dragon defender. This is a new unique drop.

Elder chaos druids
The Elder chaos druids have been added to the Wilderness. They are very similar to the elder chaos druids from OSRS, except they will not teleport you around when walking away. Their addition means you can now get the Elder chaos druid equipment, which is very useful for pure pking!

Quality of Life
  • Changes have been made to pathing. It still isn't perfect, but there should be some improvements. We really appreciate feedback on this.
  • The summoning skill icon has been made transparent, indicating its unavailability. It will also show information about its unsuccessful poll.
  • The tab icon of the spellbook will now change according to the currently selected spellbook. This is solely a visual indicator.
  • You can now toggle the visibility of the clan chat rank icon next to clan chat messages. This can be toggled in ::settings and is active by default.
  • The Fountain of Heroes now also restores run energy.
  • You can now right-click the fountain in Varrock and drink from it. This will act in the same way as the Fountain of Heroes in Edgeville.
  • Superior slayer creatures now always drop a Dark totem piece.
  • Added noted Sacred Eels for skillers that really want to collect a lot of fish.
  • It's now possible to remove a tentacle from any of the Tentacle custom whips. The tentacle will be destroyed in the process. This can be used to combine a custom whip with a Completionist cape.
  • Slightly lowered the time between waves in the Fight Caves.
  • The charges on the Bracelet of Clay have been increased to 100, versus the original 28.
  • The amount of bolt racks in the Barrows chest has been increased to 1200 (from 400).
  • 'A Key to a chest' has been renamed to 'Thermonuclear key'. This will hopefully give it a more understandable name and easier to refer to.
  • The Castle Wars capes (Saradomin and Zamorak capes) now also have the Ava's Accumulator ammunition collection effect.
  • Astral runes have been removed from the Ironman magic store.
  • Honor accounts no longer have access to any of the Slayer helmet perks.
  • The Brimstone chest now drops the correct Dark totem piece, according to the type the player has the least of.
  • Removed all other right-click options from the Bonecrusher as they were not functional.
  • Added a "noted" version of the Magic shop and Armour & Weapons shop. It's now possible to switch tabs and quickly stack up larger amounts of the provided equipment.
  • The 1B, 500M and 100M tickets are now stackable by default.
  • The Ancient warriors, Ancient mages and Ancient rangers are now assigned as a single slayer task, combined under 'Ancient guardians'. They no longer have to be killed individually.
  • The Ex-ex parrot, bought from the Vote store, no longer costs 2 Ring of Wealths. We've seen a lot of players being annoyed and confused by the fact that they cost 2 uncharged ROWs.
  • The Rogues at the Fight Arena can now also be attacked.


Bug fixes
  • Fixed a bug with the Kraken dropping Uncharged tridents.
  • Fixed the bug where the Lectern in Karamja would ask the player to craft bones to peaches tabs when having extra runes in their inventory.
  • A bug was fixed where Vorkath's projectile seemed to hit the player even though it was aiming for a tile.
  • The map icons on Premium island have been removed. This was for testing and I forgot to remove them, whoops.
  • A bug has been fixed where some item dialogue (Amulet of Aggression and Infernal items) would cause a different dialogue to open, for example the Lottery dude's dialogue.
  • Fixed a bug with the Dragon harpoon where players were able to indefinitely boost their fishing level above 99, gaining insane fishing rates.
  • Disabled the Ruby bolt (e) special attack on Verzik's first phase. It is now heavily lowered and will not hit through her protection like before.
  • The poison indicator on the hitpoints orb should now be cleared by antipoison potions.
  • Red chinchompas now have the same attack speed as their black counterpart.
  • The prices in the Price checker now get updated every 12 hours. Originally, they were only loaded upon starting the client, but some players use the same client for weeks.
  • The magic calculations are now 100% accurate and your max hit is no longer increased when boosting your magic level.
  • The Malevolent mage now uses magic attacks.
  • The Amulet of the Damned now properly works with Dharok's equipment set.
  • It is no longer possible to charge already charged Amulets of glory.
  • The ::bork command now displays the correct amount of time until your next "First Bork kill of the day" bonus when you have the "Big ork visitant" perk unlocked.

Armadyl - Kree'arra - Community bossing event

by Ely » Tue Mar 31, 2020 1:39 am

Welcome back to the latest community bossing event. This week we’ll be hunting Kree'arra. Kree'arra can be found south in the Godwars Dungeon. During this event all players will be able to use the ::event command, which will teleport you directly in front of the Kree'arra door, skipping the kill count requirement. Throughout this event, drop rates will be boosted by +20%.
This community event will follow the same style as the previous revenants event, meaning you'll have multiple tiers for rewards. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of these events, please consider viewing this zamorak GWD event announcement post.

Based on the feedback from the most recent community events, we'll always aim to ensure the goals and targets we set are achievable, yet challenging.

Starts in:

Ends in:

Personal Goal = 13 000 Damage

Community Goal Bronze Tier =
16 500 Kills


Community Goal Silver Tier =
19 000 Kills


Community Goal Gold Tier =
21 500 Kills


Depending on the amount of kills the community gets, will determine which rewards will be handed out. Below you can find all the tiers of rewards for both the community and personal goals. If the community manages to achieve 19 000 kills (silver tier) Everyone who has managed to complete the personal goal of 13 000 damage will be eligible for these rewards. The personal goal will stay the same for everyone, but the community goals will increase.

Ironman players are still eligible to receive the personal goal rewards.

Only the bronze goal will be displayed within the ::events command.
