[20/7/19] Salamander hunting, Explorer's rings, Farming shops, Instance respawn timers & more!

16 hours ago  l  Omicron

Hello everyone,

 

We’re back with another weekly update! Today’s update contains a few more neat pieces of content such as the ability to hunt Salamanders, functionality to Explorer’s rings as well as the 3rd and 4th rings being released, request Farming shops with replenishing stock for ironmen, and respawn timer notifications for instanced rooms. On top of this, we’ve also managed to squeeze in some bug fixes and QOL!

 

In other news... we’ve also been working on some Raids 1 changes (storage chests and a few other things, such as tweaks to the Olm’s combat) that should be our next week if all goes according to plan!

 

Salamander hunting: Players can now hunt Red, Orange, and Black salamanders, as well as swamp lizards. Traps can be set using a rope and a small net, and will expire after 2.5 minutes. Black salamanders: Black salamanders can be hunted in the area in level 20 wilderness if the player has at least 67 hunter. Red salamanders: Red salamanders can now be hunted in the area near ZMI if the player has at least 59 hunter. Orange salamanders: Orange salamanders can now be hunted in the desert hunting area if the player has at least 47 hunter. Swamp lizard: Swamp lizards can now be hunted in the Morytania swamps if the player has at least 27 hunter. Miscellaneous: Watson in Zeah was previously aggressive and would attack players, this has been fixed. Pieces of the rogue set can now be claimed from the untradeables shop for 100k a piece. Varrock Armour 4 (from the Achievement shop) can now act as a Prospector jacket for the set effect of bonus experience when Mining. Fixed a bug which sometimes caused the "Nothing interesting happens." message to be shown in the chatbox when interacting with equipment in the inventory. Strange device has been removed from the Hard clue rewards loot table. Fixed Duel arena teleport location when using the Ring of Dueling. Cave Krakens now drop 50 noted vials of water instead of un-noted. Magic dart can now be auto-casted using a Slayer’s Staff. Players can now use the mythical cape to teleport to the Myth’s guild. Checking the melting pot in Blast Furnace will now tell you the amount of each ore you have in the melting pot, as opposed to the total amount. Fixed 3rd age axe attack/block animations, and the 65 Attack level requirement has been added. Teleport animation fixed: When using certain jewellery to teleport (such as Glories or Rings of duelling), or even using a lever, while being attacked, sometimes your "block" animation would take priority over the teleport animation. This should no longer happen, and the teleport animation will play regardless of any other animation. Farming shops: Two new limited-stock farming shops are now available! Both shops carry the same stock, but are in different locations and essentially provide double the amount of seeds that can be purchased. Locations: Amelia in the Farming guild Olivia in the Draynor market Seeds: Potato seeds (200) Onion seeds (100) Cabbage seeds (50) Barley seeds (200) Jute seeds (50) Rosemary seeds (200) Marigold seeds (200) Hammerstone seeds (200) Asgarnian seeds (100) Yanillian seeds (50) Instance respawn time notifications: Free Instance notifications (chatbox) If you are in an instanced boss room, you will receive chatbox messages telling you how long it will take for the boss to respawn. Halfway through the respawn time, you will receive another notification. Bosses affected: Zulrah Kraken Alchemical Hydra Cerberus Private instance notifications (interface) If you are in a private instance room, you will see the time left until the boss respawns in the top-left corner of your screen on the private instance interface. This only applies to the boss in the room.  For example, in a Bandos room, only General Graardor's respawn will be shown on the interface. For the Dagannoth kings room in which there are 3 rooms, it will show the respawn timer of the most recently killed Dagannoth king. Trading post listing update: The Trading post was recently updated to show listings of players who are online first,  and although this is not being changed, we are extending this to also sort by the lowest price first by default. This means that when you search for a whip you will see the lowest price of any player that is online. There may be lower prices from offline players, though, but at the very least you will not see the 2 billion GP offer on an Iron scimitar show up at the top of the list. Note: This doesn't apply to the "Recent" listings, which always shows the latest listings from online players. Tournament cup updated: The Tournament cup has been updated to include all of 2019's tournament winners thus far. Draynor wall shortcut: Players with level 42 Agility or higher can now utilize the Agility shortcut through the wall that separates Draynor village and Port sarim. Explorer's ring changes: Explorer's rings 1 & 2 were previously in the Daily task reward shop, but were lacking the proper features which have now been added: Ring 1: 50% run energy replenish twice a day Cast Low level alchemy without using runes 30 times a day (no magic XP gained) Ring 2: (All of ring 1 +) The run energy replenish can be used 3 times a day instead of 2 Unlimited teleports to cabbage patch near Falador farming patches Ring 3: (all of ring 2 +) The run energy replenish can be used 4 times a day instead of 3 Ring 4: (all of ring 3 +) 100% run energy replenish 3 times a day Cast High level alchemy without using runes 30 times a day (no magic XP gained) Daily task reward shop changes: Explorer's ring 3 added for 200 points. Explorer's ring 4 added for 250 points. Volcanic Ash Mining: The fastest way to get here would be to teleport to fossil island, and use the Magic Mushtree teleport to Verdant valley and run north. Players can now mine Volcanic Ash at fossil island. Mining volcanic ash provides 10 base experience. Players will get the following amount of Volcanic Ash from mining ash piles: Mining level of 97 or higher: 6 Volcanic Ash Mining level of 82 or higher: 5 Volcanic Ash Mining level of 67 or higher: 4 Volcanic Ash Mining level of 52 or higher: 3 Volcanic Ash Mining level of 37 or higher: 2 Volcanic Ash Mining level lower than 37: 1 Volcanic Ash Ultracompost: Ultracompost can now be made by using Volcanic Ash on Supercompost. 2 Volcanic Ash and 1 Supercompost will be consumed in exchange for 1 Ultracompost. Players can now fertilize their crops with Ultracompost, which provides an even larger yield than Supercompost fertilization. Hosidius Kitchen: Players can now cook their food on the Hosidius kitchen range, which provides a 10% increased chance of successfully cooking food. Players can access this area from various teleports to Zeah, the closest of which being the Xeric’s talisman teleport to “Xeric’s heart”, then running south.

 

Store updates: Certain items have been discontinued from the store due to them not being popular and simply cluttering the categories: Gnome child hat Warrior's ring (i) Dragon javelin pack Dark crab pack Dragon bolt pack Verac and Torag armour sets Dark bow

[14/7/19] Motherlode Mine, Cave Krakens, Kalphite Queen Rework, Mort Myre Fungus Collection & more!

1 week ago  l  Omicron

[15/7/19] Hotfixes:

Max capes and monkey capes will no longer have the Defence cape effect (teleporting you out at < 10% HP) Elemental runes (water, air, earth, fire) prices increased in the new Rune shop in the Wizard's guild. Fixed major issue with NPC movement / combat introduced last update: Not being able to attack spiders in Theatre of Blood Implings flying out of range Being able to attack monsters through objects Killing Kraken on a Cave Kraken task now counts towards your task. Silver jewellery can now be strung once again.

 

Hello everyone,

 

We're back with another round of weekly updates! We've worked hard to push this one out right at the start of the weekend. This week, we're introducing the Motherlode Mine, which provides a viable way to train Mining, as well as the introduction 

 

Motherlode Mine: The Motherlode mine is now open for miners who are at least level 30 Mining! Access: You can reach the Motherlode mine by using the Teleport Wizard, or by using the Skills necklace. Alternatively, you can use one of the two shortcuts in the Falador mines. Features: This mining area features Ore veins, which can be mined for pay-dirt and yield 60 Mining experience. These ore veins occasionally deplete, with the ores on the lower level having a higher chance of depleting. The veins also have a chance to give uncut gems. Pay-dirt: The clean the pay-dirt that is mined, you can fill it into the hopper. When deposited, it will be taken through a water circuit and will flow towards the sack at the end. The sack can then be searched to collect various ores, ranging from Coal to Runite.  Higher level ores will yield more experience. You will also have a chance to receive Golden nuggets, which can be used in Prospector Percy's Nugget Shop. Sack size: The sack can hold up to 108 pay-dirt initially, but can also be upgraded by paying Prospector Percy 200 golden nuggets, which brings the maximum up to 189 pay-dirt. Hazards: Rockfalls: Occasionally, rocks will fall in certain areas of the mine, damaging any unlucky players who are standing under them for 1-4 HP. These can be mined away for 10 Mining experience. Broken struts: Occasionally, the struts on the water wheels will break. This event affects everybody in the mine, and if both water wheels break, then the machinery can no longer clean pay-dirt for anyone. The struts can be fixed by using a hammer on them and grants some Smithing experience (1.5x the player's Smithing level). Upper level: To access the upper level, you must have at least level 72 Mining and pay Prospector Percy a one-time fee of 10M GP. The upper level contains 68 additional ores that are closer to each other compared to the lower level. They also have a lower chance of depleting. Rewards: You can trade Prospector Percy to purchase the following items in exchange for golden nuggets: Prospector outfit - 180 golden nuggets for full set This set, comprised of helmet (40), jacket (60), legs (50) and boots (30) will provide a 2% boost to Mining experience when fully worn: Helmet - 0.4% Jacket - 0.8% Legs - 0.6% Boots - 0.2% Bag full of gems - 40 golden nuggets These bags can be opened to obtain 40 random noted, uncut gems. The gems can range from Sapphire to Onyx, but we must warn you that the chance of an Onyx is slim to none. Here are the rates: Sapphire - 49.93% Emerald - 34.68% Ruby - 11.8% Diamond - 3.9% Dragonstone - 0.62% Onyx - 0.000001% Coal bag - 100 Golden nuggets Gem bag - 100 Golden nuggets Wizard's Guild Rune shop: Wizard Sinina on the second floor of the guild now sells all kinds of runes (except Cosmic, Astral and Wrath) with a limited stock of up to 5,000 of each rune for elemental, and between 250-400 for other runes. You can also purchase Rune packs in this shop, carrying between 35-80 packs in stock for any type. This shop is available to Ironmen. Rogue set upgrade: The Rogue set now also provides a chance at double loot from stalls, and not only from pickpocketing. Vote shop updates: Silver sickle ( b ) has been added to the vote shop for 300 vote points. Mort Myre fungus collection: Players can now use Silver Sickle( b ), which is purchasable in the Vote shop, to cast bloom in a 1 tile radius around the player, which will turn any Rotting logs into Mort Myre fungus logs. Using the sickle deducts 6 prayer points. Each log the player picks will provide them with 2 Mort Myre fungi, and the player can cast bloom an unlimited number of times. Note: All previous Mort myre fungus spawns have been removed, since they are redundant, and take away utility from the silver sickle. Miscellaneous: Fixed a graphical issue on the Achievement shop interface (Karamja gloves were gigantic). You can now 'investigate' the Kourend statue in Zeah to enter the Catacombs. You can also leave through the exit rope to go up to the surface. Jewellery fixes: Amulets of Glory, Rings of Dueling and Games necklaces now have charges removed when used in the equipment tab, as they were previously bugged. The Amulet of glory will not be lost, but the other two will crumble to dust upon being fully used. Games necklace teleports added: Burthorpe Barbarian outpost Kouren Corporeal beast Wintertodt Skills necklace teleports added: Fishing guild Motherlode mine Crafting guild Cooking guild Woodcutting guild Xeric's talisman teleports added: Xeric's Lookout Xeric's Glade Xeric's Inferno Xeric's Heart Xeric's Honor Amulet of glory teleports fixed to include both Karamja and Al-Kharid, while the Duel Arena has been removed from the list. Bonesack utility has been added: The bone sack (from the Achievement shop) can now be used to fill with various types of bones. It can hold bones, big bones, baby dragon bones, dragon bones, superior dragon bones, wyvern bones, lava dragon bones, Drake bones, Wyrm bones, Dagannoth bones, and Hydra bones. Players can store the following amounts based on their rank: (bones in total, regardless of type) Regular players->Super donators: 7 bones Extreme Donators->Legendary Donators: 9 bones Uber donators->Master donators: 11 bones Immortal donators: 13 bones Note: If you die with the bone sack, it will drop all of the stored bones. Cave krakens have been added! You can now disturb the Whirlpools in the Kraken cave to force Cave krakens to rise to the surface of the murky waters. After awakening the Cave krakens, they will attack you with solely Magic. You should also retaliate with Magic, as Melee cannot be used and Ranged attacks are heavily reduced against them. Notable loot: Kraken tentacle Trident of the seas Other loot: Many staff / rune drops, as well as some seeds including Torstol and Snapdragon. Notes: You must be level 87 Slayer to attack these monsters. Slayer: You can now obtain Cave krakens as a Slayer task on a hard Slayer task and be assigned between 55 and 140 to slay. Impling catching update: You can now catch implings in Puro Puro without a jar, whether you are doing so barehanded or with a net. Catching them barehanded will simply automatically loot the impling, without storing it in a jar. You can also now do so without any inventory space, and the loot will simply drop to the floor. Kalphite Queen rework: Prayer mechanics: Phase 1 is now more resistant to Ranged/Magic attacks. Melee should be the choice during this phase. Phase 2 is now more resistant to Melee attacks, requiring you to use Ranged or Magic to damage her. You can also use Verac's to hit through the prayer, but other combat types will remain slightly more accurate. Attack mechanics: Her Ranged/Mage attacks are 100% accurate as intended, and will always hit (still a slight chance to hit 0 through RNG, and still reducible by Prayer). Her Ranged attacks will now drain 1 Prayer point if they hit more than 0. If wearing a Spectral spirit shield, there is only a 50% chance that your Prayer will be drained upon being damaged. Other bugs: Upon transforming to the second phase, the KQ will re-attack the previous target. Fixed a bug where players who died and returned to the area would see the old form of the KQ rather than the 2nd form, if it is transformed. The 'transformation' time between phase 1 and phase 2 has been reduced by a few seconds, as it was slightly longer than it should be. Gold crafting has been fixed: You can now use gold bars on any furnace again to create gold jewellery. Sand crab changes: Aggro/respawn fixes: After respawning, some Sand crabs would not properly aggro on you, or they would not turn back into Rocks. They have now been fixed entirely and should work the same way that Rock crabs do. Multi-combat zone fixes: Crab claw isle is now a multi-combat as intended. The bank area is now single combat as intended. The south-east shore is now single combat as intended. Master Farmer update: You can now obtain Hops seeds from pickpocketing the Master Farmer, which should help for Birdhouse seed collection. Miscellaneous: The description for the Gem bag in the web-store has been fixed. Fixed a bug which caused HCIM to lose status if they died immediately after leaving the Recipe for Disaster mini-quest. The Fremennik Slayer dungeon entrance and exit have been fixed. Larran's key, although typically untradeable, now always drops on death, even if another player kills you. Cape fixes: Regular players can no longer use the Donator zone chinchompa teleport. Using certain Max cape functions that had options (eg. Chinchompas, Spellbook swap) would cause your player to perform the max cape emote. This should no longer occur. Ardougne max cape unique teleports (Kandarin monastery and Ardougne farm) have been fixed. Infernal max cape options have been fixed. Daily tasks fix: Daily tasks were not resetting at the proper time (server time) and would sometimes reset 6 hours prior to midnight. This has been fixed. Castle wars barricade fix: Burning barricades would make the underlying tile blocked from being walked on. This has been fixed.
