Hello everyone,

 

 

Today's update consists of many bug fixes but also plenty of new content! A few days ago, raids were released on OSRS and we've begun working on them to get them to you as soon as we can. In the meantime, here are the latest updates:

 

NOTE: You must restart your client to obtain the latest version!

 

  • Combat:
    • Dragon scimitar special fixed once and for all
    • Teleblock issues fixed:
      • Fixed spam-teleblock bug which didn't allow you to attack a player who was already teleblocked
      • Teleblock accuracy slightly increased
      • Visual teleblock timer on client was previously 5-10 seconds too long, this has since been fixed.
    • Fixed issue where two people could attack the same person in 1 tick
    • Dragon spear special fix:
      • If you spec someone against a wall, it will not try to run them to the other side of the wall.
  • New Duel Arena System:
    • The new OSRS duel arena has been implemented!
      • Due to the amount of scam reports the staff team has had to deal with, the new duel arena system seemed like a great option to deter scamming.
    • We've implemented the new system with the following useful features:
      • View other player's inventory/equipment (without showing amounts of any item)
      • No switch weapon ~ You will not be able to switch your weapon once the duel starts
      • (Coming later this week) Presets/Load last duel ~ Later on this week, this option will be added to make the setup interface process even smoother.
    • Bug fixes:
      • Firemaking/mithril seeds blocked within arenas
      • Flags/trapdoors fixed -- You are now able to forfeit the duel
    • NOTE:
      • There are bound to be bugs with this system, so please help us perfect it by reporting them in the correct section!
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Fixed issue with trading interface -- second screen would show old item text
    • Fixed teleporting out of monkey madness and not losing items on death
    • Administrators are now able to spawn NPCs that all players can attack(for event purposes)
    • Pet options fixed:
      • Pets such as Rift guardians can now undergo metamorphosis
  • Pet insurance changes:
    • Your pet will now always be insured! If you do die with it, you will only need to pay to retrieve your pet.
      • This means you won't have to pay the 5M again for insurance
    • With this update, pet insurance has been increased from 5M to a one-time fee of 10M.
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Fallback for bug abuse ~ If you do manage to get out of a minigame, you will not be able to duel.
    • Dragon claws are also now tradable
  • Raids items teaser:
    • Everyone is excited about raids coming out, OSRS and Alora players alike! We wanted to give everyone a small taste of what the raids items are like, so we've added these 3 components to the website store:
      • Elder maul
        • Similar to the Chaotic maul, this powerful weapon provides a heavy blow to any formidable opponent.
      • Ancestral robes set
        • A magical set of robes, in which each component provides a magic damage boost.
        • The entire 3-piece set provides a 6% boost to Magical damage!
      • Kodai wand
        • The strongest of the wands, the Kodai wand provides a 15% boost to all Magical damage!
    • Raids are being worked on as we speak, but it is a huge job which will takeat least 10 days, which is why we've decided to release a few of the items early while the hype is extremely high. Keep an eye out for more Raids information soon!
  • Smoke devil cave:
    • You may now access the Smoke devil cave through the shortcut in Nieve's cave(north-west in the cave)
      • This cave has many Smoke devils which require 93 Slayer to kill and can drop:
        • Occult necklace
        • Dragon chainbody
        • & frequent alchable drops
      • Additionally, the cave can lead to the Thermonuclear smoke devil boss's lair which drops:
        • +Also drops the above items, but more frequently
        • Pet smoke devil
        • Steam battlestaff
          • Provides a 10% accuracy and damage boost when casting from the Normal spellbook
    • Smoke devils have been added as Slayer tasks:
      • *You must be on a Slayer task assigned to the Thermonuclear smoke devil to kill it!*
      • Both Smoke devils and the boss can be assigned.
  • Clue scroll changes:
    • # of clue steps required greatly reduced:
      • 1-3 Easy
      • 3-6 Medium
      • 4-6 Hard
      • 7-11 Elite
    • Hard/Elite clues now have a higher chance of receiving a minimum of 3+ items rather than two
    • Hard clue rewards buffed
    • Elite clue rewards buffed (even more than hard)
  • Skotizo reworked:
    • Skotizo combat rework:
      • Skotizo is now more powerful, and switches between Magic and Ranged based attacks
      • Combat bonuses increased
      • HP increased
      • Has a special attack which teleports players to him:
        • If you do not move immediately, you will be hit for 10 damage
    • Skotizo now SKULLS all players that attack him
    • Skotizo drop changes
      • Loot additions:
        • Tormented bracelet
        • Dark crabs(noted, 20-70)
        • Super combat pots(noted, 10-15)
        • Stamina potions(noted, 15-25
      • Skotizo now drops items for all THREE players who dealt the most damage(as long as they hit at least 75 dmg):
        • He will also always drop an emblem for the top 3 hitters:
          • #1: Emblem between tiers 1-6
          • #2: Emblem between tiers 1-5
          • #3: Emblem between tiers 1-4
        • For the player who dealt the most damage, Skotizo will upgrade an existing emblem in their inventory.
  • Barrows point exchanging:
    • Previously, there were not many uses for barrows points. We've decided to change that and make them more useful!
      • You can now purchase a random barrows set for 15,000 points!
        • Simply speak to the Strange old man at Barrows to do so.

Just joined this server, and I gotta say that this is awesome. Awesome update notes - really nice to see great things implemented, and not just random unnecessary things. 

 

Also, staff seems very active in-game, literally when I got home, some admin named F8 was doing an event for the players, that's nice

 

Definitely gonna stay, keep up the good work :)
