[11/5/19] Clue scroll expansion, Ironman PKP exchange, Raids QOL, Combo staffs, New emotes, Glassblowing & more!

1 week ago  l  Omicron

Hotfixes [12/5/19]:

Glassblowing interface now centered on resizable. Ultimate mystery box changes: Ultimate mystery box announcements are now reserved for rare items only. Amulet of power (t) and Amulet of defence (t) removed. Rune scimitar ornament kits removed. Bandos boots have been removed. Buying runes from the Ironman PKP exchange when you don't have the total amount for the purchase (eg. Buying 250 runes but only having enough for 50) will now give you the right amount rather than undercutting you. Trollweiss from Mithril seeds will now be announced.

 

Note: All of the removed items above have been refunded to players who received them, and you will find Ultimate mystery boxes to replace them in your inventory upon logging in.

 

 

Hello everyone,

 

I'd like to firstly apologize for the longer than usual delay in getting this update out, some of you already know that I fell ill at the end of last month and it delayed things quite a little bit. Nonetheless, I've been doing nothing but working hard the past few weeks to give you guys an update that's worth the wait, and I hope you’ll understand given the circumstances, and that you’ll enjoy this update :)

 

I feel that we've done a good job of getting a bit of everything in this update, from new content (Clue scroll expansion, Ironman PKP shop), to QOL updates (Pest control XP rewards, Raids purple light + pet changes), to long awaited and highly requested updates such as Combo staffs and (drumroll) Glassblowing. There's a little bit of everything for everyone in this one, but I'll let you read the rest for yourselves below!

 

Clue scroll reward expansion: All clue scroll tiers have received many new rewards! Over 70+ new items have been introduced to Alora. Easy: Jester cape Shoulder parrot Bear slippers Frog slippers Demon slippers Mole slippers God ornament kits (Saradomin, Guthix, Zamorak) for Rune scimitars Sandwich lady outfit (hat, top and bottom) Monk robes (t) (top and bottom) Amulet of defence (t) Power amulet (t) Rain bow Ham joint Staff of Bob the Cat Leather body and chaps (g) Black heraldic platebodies (h1, h2, h3, h4 and h5) Medium: Wolf mask and Wolf cloak Climbing boots (g) Spiked manacles Adamant heraldic platebodies (h1, h2, h3, h4 and h5) Hard: Dual sai (very rare) Thieving bag (very rare) 3rd age plateskirt (very rare) Gilded rune defender kit Obby maul ornament kit Berserker necklace ornament kit Blessed d'hide shields (Ancient, Armadyl, Bandos, Guthix, Saradomin and Zamorak) Rune heraldic platebodies (h1, h2, h3, h4 and h5) Elite: 3rd druidic staff, top, legs and cloak (extremely rare) Tormented bracelet ornament kit 3rd age plateskirt Gilded dragonhide (top, legs, vambraces and coif) Gilded axe and pickaxe Gilded spade Uri's hat Rangers' tights Fremennik kilt Rune & adamant dragon masks Collection log: All of the new clue rewards listed above have been added to the Collection log and can now be unlocked/counted. Crafting updates: Glassblowing: Glassblowing pipe has been added to the Skilling supplies shop for normal players, and to the general store for Ironmen. Using a glassblowing pipe on molten glass will open the Glassblowing interface and allow you to craft: Beer glasses Candle lanterns Oil lamps Vals Fish bowls Orbs Lantern lenses Dorgeshuun Light Orbs Molten glass: Using buckets of sand and soda ash on a furnace will allow you to create Molten glass. Each glass smelted will earn you 20 Crafting experience. Molten glass has been removed from the Construction supply shop. Buckets of sand: Using empty buckets on a Sand pit (eg. Yanille) will allow you to collect sand. Soda ash: Using Seaweed on a cooking range or fire will provide you with Soda ash.  No experience is awarded for this action. Chambers of Xeric (Raids 1) updates: Purple light on reward chest: The long awaited purple light above the reward chest is now here! You will now see a light above your own chest if you indeed have any rare loot within the chest. The game news announcement that tells other players what you received will not be sent until you loot the chest, leaving it a mystery until the final moment. Only you will see the purple light, if other players on your team do not have rare loot, they will see the usual white spotlight. Loot interface fixed: (https://i.imgur.com/xROpVFh.png) The loot interface has been broken for awhile now (though it oddly was working fine when raids was first released early 2017) and has gone unnoticed by me until now.  The interface background is supposed to have a chest on the right side, and a purple skeleton on the left side, neither of which were properly visible for the past year at least. The interface should now show both in the background as intended. Acid bug: A rare bug which caused the crystal that blocks the exit to re-spawn sometimes if someone was inflicted with the acid trail has now been fixed and should no longer occur. Raids pet reward changes: Raids 1 (Chambers of Xeric): In Raids 1, the Olmlet pet will only have a 1/53 chance to be awarded if you ALREADY received a rare drop (eg. An Elder maul). That means that you will never get the pet on it's own. Raids 2 (Theatre of Blood): In Raids 2, you are able to get the Lil' Zik pet on it's own, but it will not cause the chest to glow purple. Purple chests will be reserved for other rare drops. Daily task changes: The Medium task to open the Bloody chest in the wilderness has been removed due to GIM not being able to open it at the moment. Ground item bug fix: As of the past few months, you may have noticed that in certain areas of the game (Rock crabs, Iron dragons in Brimhaven dungeon, etc) some ground items from slain monsters would not get removed (Iron bars, Seaweed, etc). This bug would cause a bunch of ground items to remain on the ground, flooding the map after a few days of uptime. We've isolated the problem that was causing items not to get removed and it should no longer happen. Special attack orb update: The special attack orb will no longer be blue if you don't have a weapon that has a special attack. Instead, if you are unarmed or you you don't have a weapon with a special attack, the orb will be filled with a silver color to denote this. Well of goodwill price reduction: Following the price increase this year from 25m to 100m and hearing the feedback, we decided to meet a bit closer to the middle and set the Well of Goodwill price to 50m and see how it goes. This way, the Well should not go too many hours without being full as it will be far more affordable. Trollweiss flowers: These flowers now have an extremely rare chance of being obtained when planting Mithril seeds. They are an exclusive item that should be quite valuable to gamblers due to their rarity. Pest control reward update  (Thanks to @[member="Seabound"] for the suggestion) You can now use your Pest control points to exchange for experience! By trading the Void Knight who runs the old PC exchange shop, you'll be presented with a new option to exchange points for experience. You can purchase experience in the following skills, provided that the skill is at least level 25: Attack, Strength, Defence, Ranged, Magic, Hitpoints, Prayer You can trade 1, 10 or 100 points at a time for any of the skills. By trading more points at once, you get bonus experience. For example, trading in 10 points gets you an extra 1% XP. Trading in 100 points at once gets you an extra 10% XP. Experience is awarded according to the following formula: (*Click here to view the table https://i.imgur.com/9RCV2gM.png)  ((N x floor(L^2 / 600)) x gameModeMultiplier) / 4 L = level N = 18 for prayer, 32 for magic/range, 35 for others Floor means round down to the nearest whole number gameModeMultiplier = the experience rate for your game mode, for example this is 8 for HCIM. Note: Experience boosts (well of goodwill, weekend bonuses, etc) do not affect the amount of XP you receive from this exchange. Cape of Skulls: The Cape of Skulls is a prestigious cape that can be obtained only by the top PvPers on Alora. Wearing the cape will skull you, similar to the Amulet of Avarice. The cape can be obtained by those who have at least 1,000 kills in the wilderness for a fee of 20M GP from the Emblem trader.  It can be re-obtained if lost from the Lost items manager for a fee of 1M p. New emotes added: 3 new emotes have been added to the Emotes tab! Crazy Dance This dance references PSY's 'Gangnam Style', and is automatically unlocked for all players. Smooth Dance This dance references Drake's 'Hotline Bling' dance, and is automatically unlocked for all players. Uri Transform To unlock this emote, you must have completed at least 300 Hard clue scrolls. A message will be sent once you have unlocked it, and it will no longer be gray in your emote tab. Ring of stone functionality: Although previously available on Alora, the Ring of stone did not have it's morph functionality properly configured. Wearing the ring will now turn you into a pile of rocks as intended (similar to the Ring of coins). Wilderness/combat changes: NPC PJ timer fix: When fighting NPCs, if you freeze one and are no longer under attack by it, you would still have to wait approximately ~8-10 seconds before being able to attack another monster. This has been heavily reduced, allowing you to move on to another NPC as long as you are not under attack for 6 ticks (3.6 seconds). Newly released items: (available in the normal/ironman PKP exchanges) Wilderness sword 4 (Perks only applicable when worn or in inventory) Allows you to choose your destination when teleporting through Ancient obelisks, without having to be a donator. 20% reduced entry fee to the Resource area When wielded, webs will always be successfully slashed. If lost on death, it can be re-purchased for 500k GP. Soul bearer The soul bearer sends any ensouled heads that a player picks up to their bank, as long as they are not a UIM and have space in their bank. The soul bearer must be charged for this effect to take place, it requires 1 soul rune and 1 blood rune to charge it, and is able to hold up to 1,000 charges. If lost on death, it can be re-purchased for 500k GP. Ironman PKP Exchange: Following the recent content poll, we have decided to implement an Ironman PKP exchange to promote wilderness activity and to give Ironmen a reason to be in the wilderness.  Items in the shop: Saradomin's tear (3,000 PKP) Looting bag (50 PKP) Dark totem (100 PKP) Revenant cave teleports (100 PKP) Bloody key (1,500 PKP) Wilderness sword 4 (7,000 PKP) Soul bearer (10,000 PKP) Amulet of Eternal glory (25,000 PKP) Regular Mystic robe pieces (350 PKP per piece) Light Mystic robe pieces (400 PKP per piece) Dark Mystic robe pieces (450 PKP per piece) Enchanted robe pieces (500 PKP per piece) Rune pouch (3,000 PKP) Ring of recoil (50 PKP) Dragon dagger (p++) (150 PKP) Sanfew serum (3) (15 PKP per potion) Blood runes (12 PKP per 50 runes) Death runes (10 PKP per 50 runes) Astral runes (10 PKP per 50 runes) Cosmic runes (6 PKP per 50 runes) Regular PKP Exchange changes: The regular PKP store has received two new items: Wilderness sword 4 (7,000 PKP) Soul bearer (10,000 PKP) Ironman PvP Scoreboard: A new right-click option can allow you to toggle between global wilderness statistics and Ironman-only statistics. The toggle will be saved on logout, so the next time you log in the statistics will only be shown for ironmen. To change back, you can simply right-click and toggle back to the normal scoreboard. Combination staff (Elemental staves) fixes: The following list of battlestaffs & mystic staffs now work properly with their combination runes, where previously they would not be infinite for any runes: Unchanged: Lava and mud battlestaffs/mystic staffs were all previously functional. Fixed: Steam battlestaff & Mystic steam staff (As well as both ornament kit versions) These now provide unlimited Fire and Water runes Smoke battlestaff & Mystic smoke staff These now provide unlimited Fire and Air runes These staffs' animations and requirements have also been fixed. Mist battlestaff & Mystic mist staff These now provide unlimited Water and Air runes Dust battlestaff & Mystic dust staff These now provide unlimited Earth and Air runes These staffs' animations and requirements have also been fixed. Dust battlestaff: This staff is a drop from many monsters that was not previously added. It can now be obtained from: All Superior Slayer monsters Dust devils Battlestaff enchanting: The following mystic staffs can now be created from the original battlestaff by taking it to Thormac located in the house between Edgeville and the Grand exchange: Mystic steam staff Mystic smoke staff Mystic mist staff Mystic dust staff Requirements: Any of these staffs require the original battlestaff (eg. Steam battlestaff -> Mystic steam staff) The cost for each staff converted is 40k for the basic elemental staffs (eg. Air, fire, earth) and 400k GP for the combination staffs (eg. Steam, Dust, Mud etc). You must have at least 4 quest points and 750 total level to convert a staff. Other Magic staff fixes: All 3 god staffs (Saradomin/Guthix/Zamorak) now have their proper attack / stand / run / walk / block animations (would previously kick, and the other animations were a bit off). Slayer's staff previously required 55 Magic, but should only require 50 Magic and has now been fixed. Slayer fixes: After defeating Superior Slayer Encounters while on one of Konar's tasks, you would not be awarded any Slayer experience. This has been fixed and should now work correctly. Miscellaneous: The Ice barrage "orb" which displays when your target is already frozen has been fixed (broke last update). Fixed a bug which would not announce what loot you received from a Super mystery box if you opened the interface and rolled, but would only announce through the Quick-open option. Staff silent commands fixed for administrators. Ironmen/Veterans with Master Donator will no longer have a shadow behind their entire yell, as the shadow should only be applied to the rank name. Fixed a Cave horror spawn that would sometimes be un-attackable (Stuck on top of the Old fire pit near the entrance). Death animation timing: After performing their death animation, Cave horrors and King kurasks would 'stand up' again for half a second. This should no longer occur. The staircases in the Wizard's guild have been fixed. (Previously placed you on non-walkable areas)

Pet count statistics: Due to many suggestions since Alora's release, we've decided to release a neat infographic showing how many pets have been obtained by every game mode! (Thanks to @[member="Dumbshit"] for designing the image!) We've tried our best to include every pet in the game, including the God boss pet. This list does not include buyable pets, such as the Bloodhound or the Chompy chick. The list is accurate from July 24th, 2017 as we had not always been logging pet drops by game mode before this time. It is accurate until May 1st, 2019. Enjoyed this infographic? If you have any other suggestions for Alora-related statistics that you'd like to see, let us know! We love sharing statistics wherever we can.
