Hey guys,
I hope you all enjoyed your holidays the past few weeks! To start the new year off, we've decided to correctly re-do Alora's bank system, so that we can have cool things like placeholders and a main tab that shows all other tabs. We've completely redone the code for the banking, and we're sure you'll enjoy this update! Unfortunately your bank tabs will be reset, but you'll have an easy time getting it all set back up with the new mechanics :) Additionally, the much needed Clan chat ranks are also released, as this has been due for a long time now.
  • [Updates]
  • Technical:
    • Changed the way the trading post/clan chats are saved to reduce stress on the server
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Christmas event removed
    • Trade screen fixes:
    • Fixed trade screen not showing "Other player has accepted.." which broke on the last update
    • Switching has been improved even further(sometimes on 5+ way switches 1 item would not equip)
    • There was also an issue where the client would sometimes try to click another item on a right-click option. This has been fixed.
    • Fixed sound effects for wind spells
    • Gulls(seagulls) near Relleka now fly around as intended
    • Although Wyvern bones experience was fixed in a previous update, the experience received for bones on altar
    • was not fixed. It is now correct and matches Dragon bones.
  • Client fixes:
    • Toggles should now be updated more quickly:
    • Eg. if you click the run/quickpray orbs, they should update instantly, they were previously delayed
    • This also fixed piety/chivarly delay when being clicked, as well as the improper sound.
    • Fixed small issue with hitpoint orb icon
  • Clan Chat Ranks completed:
    • You can now rank friends in your clan
      • All ranks work properly
    • Minimum ranks
      • You may set a minimum join rank
      • You may set a minimum speak rank
      • You may set a minimum kick rank
    • Kicking:
    • You can now kick others from your chat, which will ban them from re-entering for 30 minutes.
      • To unban them, you can simply set them to any friends rank higher than "none".
    • This allows us to set official CC ranks for things like: Ironman CC, Gamble CC, etc.
      • These ranks will have to be set manually by staff to people who are worthy of a rank, eg. Knowledgeable and helpful ironmen, or trusted hosts.
  • Banking system redone to match OSRS
    • Main tab which allows you to view/drag between all other tabs
      • Searching between all tabs at the same time
    • Less delays when switching between tabs
    • Less bug-prone code
    • Tab header options(Roman numerals/digits)
    • Bank now remembers the last position you were at rather than resetting to the top
    • Bank allows you to withdraw-*last_amount* that you withdrew
    • Scrollbar scaling
      • The scrollbar will now fit to the size of the items in the interface
    • Placeholders
      • Placeholders can now be set/released.
      • You can also toggle the placeholder setting so that placeholders will always be set when an item hits 0.
  • Magic mechanics fixed
    • Splashing spells will now still reward you with the base experience(for Magic, but not hitpoints)
    • Damage map fixes for players using Magic
  • Dragon claws added
    • Dragon claws are now available in the PvP shop
    • We've even managed to use the real 2010 graphics/animation for the Dragon claws
      • The OSRS team re-designed it, but it wasn't quite as smooth as the original!
    • All OSRS bonuses/special attack mechanics
  • Wilderness changes:
    • Changes to "Eligibility" for PKP/emblems:
      • To receive emblems/pkp, and from this update forward also killcounts and killstreaks, you must:
      • Kill someone risking at least (Combat level 100+) 100K or (Combat level < 100) 50k
      • Kill someone with a different IP than you
      • Kill someone with a different MAC than you
      • Kill someone who you haven't killed within the last 10 minutes
        • A new "map" has been created to remember everyone who you've killed rather than 1 person
        • *This means if you are not eligible for PKP on a kill, your killcount and killstreak will not increase
    • Emblems now award PKP as well as GP at these rates:
      • Tier 1 120k GP 96 PKP
      • Tier 2 200k GP 160 PKP
      • Tier 3 320k GP 256 PKP
      • Tier 4 480k GP 384 PKP
      • Tier 5 800k GP 560 PKP
      • Tier 6 1.4m GP 826 PKP
      • Tier 7 2.4m GP 1128 PKP
      • Tier 8 3.6m GP 1843 PKP
      • Tier 9 5.6m GP 3072 PKP
      • Tier 10 8m GP 4096 PKP
    • Emblems now upgrade when you kill someone on death(this mechanic was previously broken):
      • You do not need to kill a target to upgrade an emblem in your inventory
        • As long as your kill is eligible for PKP(not same IP/Mac, not a recently killed person, etc) you will also receive pkp.
    • Tier 1 emblem drop changes on target kill:
      • Ironman can now receive emblems
      • Players can now receive emblems when killing ironmen targets
      • Chance to get Tier 1 emblem has changed:
        • As long as you are eligible for PKP, the chance to get an emblem on a target kill is 50%.
    • PKP Exchange changes:
      • Crystal shield price fixed
      • Ballista price lowered
      • ***All prices reduced by 30%**
        • We've realized that the PKP prices are quite high, and for PKing to be decently profitable they needed to be reduced.
    • Banned players no longer appear on the KDR scoreboard in-game
      • This is to deter farmers from claiming the top spots on the scoreboard
  • Achievement fixes:
    • The "Mysterious" achievement to obtain 5M bounties has been changed to "Obtain 5k PKP"
    • The "Chin-chomper" achievement (catch 1000 chinchompas) can now be completed
      • Catching chinchompas will no longer increase your "Harvest" achievement completion
    • The "Oblivion" achievement is now fixed
      • Simply attack anything while wearing any Full void outfit
    • The "Tzhaar-ket-novice" acheivement now requires wave 45 instead of wave 30
    • The "Clueless" achievement has been changed from 10 Medium clues to 10 Hard clues
    • The "High stakes" achievement can now be completed by Ironmen
      • As soon as a duel starts, it will auto-complete this task since ironmen cannot stake items or GP
  • Clue scroll changes
    • 1-step clue scroll bug fixed
    • Clue hunter armour:
      • There is now a random chance to obtain Clue hunter armour when completing a Hard/Elite clue scroll!
      • Rates for donators: (+4% to all for Elite clue scrolls)
        • 16% for Legendary
        • 10% for Extreme
        • 8% for Super
        • 6% for Regular
        • 4% for Non-donators
  • Karambwan fishing added:
    • You must use Raw karambwanji as bait -- purchasable from the fishing/ironman shops for 500gp each.
    • You can fish the Karambwan in Karamja on the dock
  • Shop changes:
    • Sanfew serum added to shops
      • This potion will have the effects of both a Super restore and Superantipoison
    • Super energy added to shops
    • Guthix rest is now noted in shop, and has increased in price
    • Pure essence has been removed from Aubury's shop
      • The Trading post is filled with essence if players wish to Runecraft, there is no reason for it being in the shop.
  • Donation changes:
    • Rune pouch added for 65 tokens
      • An untradable item which allows you to store 3 different types of runes within
    • Pet box added for 300 tokens 
    • Dragon claws added for 400 tokens
  • Boss killcount announcements: (Thanks @Jare for the suggestions!)
    • Reaching certain killcounts for bosses will yell a global message
    • When reaching the following milestones:
      • 100, 250, 500, 750, 100, 1250, 1500 and every 500 kills thereafter


As usual with large updates, you will need to restart your client!
Enjoy :)

This is epic! Thank you @GameDevJason and @Omicron for giving us such extraordinary content to dive in on. I love the uniqueness and diversity. I'm overly excited about placeholders. Should help tremendously with my OCD!

If anyone has any suggestions, please do not hesitate to let us know via You can also put your suggestion in our community Discord in the text channel that is #suggestions. Ultimately, we strive to make Alora as enjoyable as possible, so we highly encourage any suggestions, as they are greatly appreciated. :)

Fantastic work, sure do love the huge amount of work you guys put into this server!

Not sure how I feel about the pet box, kinda liked how rare certain pets were since people never did that boss. The placeholders and bug fixes are awesome though!

Awesome updates as always,


I would however love to see items that are currently exclusively obtainable via pvp to have an alternate option.

Such as bludgeon or dragon claws. i'm 90% sure this is the case and if not then ignore everything i've said.


A possibility could be an expansion of the slayer shop or a "pvm point" equivalent that offsets bad luck and makes more items accessible, even at the cost of a higher amount of effort required.

I mostly say this because i have a steady 300ms delay to the server and really dont want to hear cries in ::yell when i go farm resource area for 3 days to get claws.


EDIT: Omicron just mentioned ingame that raids will eventually be in game, rendering this entire post irrelevant XD always 1 step ahead

Omicron.. I don't know what to say! This is such a high quality, quality of life filled update and your lightning fast reaction to the communities feedback on the pet boxes blew me away. Much respect man, thanks for the updates- blowing me away once again!

Awesome great job @Omicron , @GameDevJason and great suggestion @Jare .
This will be a great update for pking and the road to d claws begins.

Great work! I assume we must wait until the next update for the cooking cape mechanics to be added? @Omicron @GameDevJason

I can be nice too, ya know..
