Hello everyone,

 

In today’s update, many of you will be happy to know that the Trading post tax has been knocked down from 5% to 2.5%! This means you’ll now barely notice it, as it is exactly half of what it was initially. We monitored the speed at which gold was generated and removed from the economy, and with all the gold sinks (including: tax, well of goodwill, banned accounts being wiped, etc) we’ve actually seen our gold economy slightly shrink. This wasn’t necessarily the goal of the TP tax, although we did need a way to slow the growth of the economy, which we believe a 2.5% tax should achieve just fine and keep prices stable. 

 

This update is not as large as usual of course, but we’re focusing all of our resources on Construction at the moment, so this is mostly an update to push out some necessary bug fixes. You can see the progress on Construction here: http://www.alora.io/...uction-preview/

 

  • Trading post tax reduced:
    • The % of your sale that goes to tax has been reduced from 5% to 2.5%.
  • New shop item:
    • We can’t get Fossil island out right now due to the full focus on construction, but we know that many of you would love to get your hands on one of the new items in the meantime!
      • Ancient wyvern shield ~ 850 tokens
        • This shield is one of the best Magic shields in the game, with stats comparable to that of the Arcane spirit shield when fully charged.
          • Similar to the Anti-dragon shield, you also receive dragonfire protection wearing this shield.
  • Inferno fixes:
    • Fixed not being able to see the boss on the far right side
    • Fixed distraction monsters on final wave not retaliating to you if you hit them with magic
  • Previous update bug fixes:
    • Redwoods ladder in Woodcutting guild has been fixed
    • Donator zone fixes/changes:
      • The fire has been moved into the bank and other random objects have been removed to make space for it.
      • Slayer master’s (Steve) right click options have been fixed (trade/assignment/rewards)
      • Furnace in DZ is now working
    • Opal crafting has been fixed
    • ::shops command will now bring Ironman to Paul instead of the shop room
    • Godsword special attack animations fixed:
      • For some reason, the previous update broke the old animation ids for the Godsword special attacks. We’ve grabbed the latest ones and pushed the fix.
  • Donator Zone new additions:
    • Rejuvination pool
    • Nurse
    • Altar
  • Battle royale fix:
    • Pressing the ESC key to close the viewing orb interface is now blocked.
  • Object examines added:
    • Objects now have proper examine text!
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Fixed Skotizo randomly despawning on players sometimes (not World skotizo, but player-spawned skotizos)
    • Grim reaper hood is now tradable
    • Fixed killstreak announcements showing the player’s rank instead of their icon (eg. OWNEROmicron just shutdown X’s kill streak)

Enjoy!

Tokens, the ones you get by donating.

So in other words, you're to donate for it costing you 850 Alora tokens/buy bonds in-game to claim these tokens too or just buy it off someone once a few have got them in-game.

Give or take, it won't take long for some people they  always have money to blow. :lol:

 

Anyway, OT;

Thank-you for these little updates today Omi, as always amazing work no matter how big or small they are :D
