We're back with another weekly update! This week's update contains a gift for players who've been with us since the beginning — the Veteran's shield, which is a large exclusive shield to show your support for Alora. As of this update, only 6,000 accounts have access to it (out of 425,000+), so only the most dedicated players will have it! There is no playtime requirement, it only requires a registration date of November 10th, 2016 or prior. Every day, more players will be allowed to obtain this cape.
We've also finally gotten around to some much request QoL, especially for UIM players. We've added STASH units, which allow you to store clue-related items that are required for riddles right next to the location. We've also added Treasure chests to PoH, which will allow you store hundreds of clue items to save bank space. We'll also be adding in some other methods of storage in this room very soon.
Aside from bug fixes, a few other cool updates include Name change tickets in the store, a buff to the Theatre of Blood drop rate (explained below), Divine green skin color as a custom donation, as well as the Divine spirit shield ornament kit that can be attached to your Elysian.
Bug Fixes: The Anger Spear is now tradable. Brimstone chest count in drop announcements was 1 too low. Fixed a bug with combination runes: Previously, if a player had a combination rune for a spell they wanted to cast, but not enough of that rune to cast a spell, it would tell them that they didn’t have enough runes, even if they had enough regular versions of the rune required. The drop warning will no longer appear for items that do not have a drop option. This used to happen for actions such as dismantling the Bracelet of Ethereum for Revenant Ether. Players who do not have the 60 slayer requirement will no longer receive basilisk knights as a task. The Zamorak/Guthix/Saradomin vestments now require the appropriate prayer levels to equip. Potato cooking: Due to popular request, players can now cook and eat raw potatoes. Cooking a raw potato requires level 7 cooking: Cooking a raw potato will grant 15 cooking experience. Eating a raw potato will provide 1 hitpoint. While this is technically possible, we recommend baking the potato first, and enjoying it with a piece of cooked meat, sourced from the cows in Lumbridge. Thanks to @[member="Elysian King”] for helping us make this possible. Maxing announcement: Players who max out every skill at 200M exp for a total of 4.6b experience will now have a news announcement displayed on the yell channel and on Discord as well. Alorian Shield: 3 Year Veteran Gift: Players who have accounts that are 3 years or older (must be registered Nov 10th, 2016 or earlier) can now claim an exclusive item from Hans! This shield will cost 5M, and can be reclaimed if lost on death for 500K. As of this update, approximately 6000 accounts qualify for this shield. Rejuvenation pool update: The delay between rejuvenation pool uses in your Player-owned house has been significantly lowered. Previously, the default delay: 1.5 mins for donators 3 mins if recently in PvP 3.5 mins for other players 7 mins if recently in PvP The new rates are: 45 seconds for donators 90 seconds if recently in PvP 1 min 45 seconds for other players 3.5 mins if recently in PvP Theatre of Blood changes: The loot rate has been slightly increased: We have modified the ToB loot rate a few times this year, once to match it to OSRS, and then we reverted that to allow all the players on the team a chance at receiving a purple chest (rather than one). From your feedback, we've come to understand that the rate was a bit low, so we've bumped it up a bit to make ToB a more enticing activity. If this boost is too low or high, we can reevaluate in the near future. Sotetseg attack change: Sotetseg's normal attacks (small red/black projectiles for range/mage attacks) will no longer hit anything through prayer. Previously, correct overhead prayers would reduce incoming damage by 80%. Dagon’hai robe changes: The Dagon’hai robes previously purchasable in the Castle wars shop can now also be found in Larran's big chest (in the Wilderness pirate ship) at a rate of 1/256 per piece, with a few changes: Bonuses have been slightly increased (eg. +20 magic to +25). Graphical issues (missing arms on some characters) have been fixed. Anyone with the old robes has had them auto-updated. Larran's chest announcements / open count: Rare loot from Larran's chest will now be announced: At the moment, this only includes Dagon'hai robes. The # of Larran's chests that you've opened will now be counted. Unfortunately, this starts as of this update, so any previous chests you've opened are not already in the counter. STASH Units: Various STASH units are now available around the game. Each STASH unit is associated with a clue, and can store the items that are required for that clue. These units do not have to be built, however they do have a construction requirement to use. STASH units available: Keep Le Faye: The STASH unit in Keep Le Faye can now be used, and requires level 42 construction to do so. Wizard Tower: The STASH unit on the Wizard Tower Bridge can now be used, and requires level 27 construction to do so. Duel Arena: The STASH unit in the Duel Arena ticket office can now be used, and requires level 27 construction to do so. Catherby: The STASH unit in the Catherby range shop can now be used, and requires level 27 construction to do so. Druid Circle: The STASH unit at the Druid circle can now be used, and requires level 27 construction to do so. Exam Room: The STASH unit at the Digsite exam room can now be used, and requires level 42 construction to do so. Shayzien arena: The STASH unit at the Shayzien combat ring can now be used, and requires level 42 construction to do so. Ardogune Zoo: The STASH unit at the Ardougne zoo can now be used, and requires level 27 construction to do so. Legends Guild: The STASH unit outside of the Legends guild can now be used, and requires level 27 construction to do so. Port Sarim: The STASH unit on the Port Sarim dock can now be used, and requires level 27 construction to do so. Costume room treasure chest added: Players can now use the treasure chest in the costume room in their Player-owned houses to store various clue scroll items. The treasure chest can be used to store items from the following clue scroll difficulties: Easy Medium Hard Elite Master Upon clicking on the treasure chest, players will be able to select an option to choose which chest to view. For the full list of items that can be stored in each chest difficulty, see the list available in this link: https://oldschoolrunescape.fandom.com/wiki/Treasure_chest_(Construction) Players can store 1 of each type of item in the treasure chest (no duplicates), and there are various sets included in the lists.

Store changes: Name change ticket: You can now change your username with a name change ticket! These tickets can be purchased from the store for 250 tokens, and can be used by any player. The tickets are also tradable. 1 and 2 letter usernames are still custom donations and can only be handled by @Omicron, but if you'd like a normal 3-12 letter name you can use this ticket to do it manually. Divine green skin color: A new skin color has been added to the custom donation list! Divine green can now be permanently unlocked through the $100 custom donation. (Through contacting @Omicron) Elysian spirit shield ornament kit: You can now purchase an exclusive ornament kit for your Elysian spirit shield to give it the appearance of a Divine spirit shield. It can be purchased from the store for 2,000 tokens. The bonuses and effects do not change whatsoever, it only affects the appearance. The ornament kit is tradable, but the shield becomes untradeable. The shield can be reverted back into the regular Elysian to be made tradable again. The ornament kit gets refunded in this case. If killed on death with this shield, it will be reverted to the regular Elysian (losing the ornament kit).
We hope you enjoy this update! Please make sure to immediately report any bugs that you encounter. :)
