We've been working hard to bring you an update that satisfies many of the suggestions that we've seen within the community, especially when it comes to client updates which have not had much attention the past few months. This update brings exactly that and so much more, with numerous QoL updates and new content such as the ability for Inferno training, the Twisted bow slayer helmet upgrade from CoX, and new $50 and $100 bonds for the easier transfer of donator ranks. Aside from this, we've also managed to squeeze in numerous bug fixes that we're sure you'll appreciate!
Note: You may have already noticed some of the updates below in-game, as we updated last week with some of the important fixes (particularly with Achievements).
Achievement Perk Viewer: Players can now right-click any diary in their quest tab and click the “View perks” button to view all the perks of each diary, and see which ones are currently active, and which aren’t. Note: We’re aware that some diaries don’t have any perks associated with them at the moment(except for the item perks, and the experience lamp), and would like to expand the perks that are obtained from diary completion. That being said, we encourage players to submit reasonable perk suggestions for diaries that currently don’t have any active. Achievement diary additions: Ardougne Medium Diary: Upgrade an Iban staff to an Iban staff (u) through Aubury. Kourend Medium Diary: Catch 25 fish through Aerial fishing. Western Provinces Medium Diary: Catch 25 kebbits with a falcon. Achievement completion in order: Achievement diaries now require that you do all the previous ones in that region before receiving rewards. For example, if you complete the Elite Falador tasks, you won't receive your Falador shield 4 until you've completed the Easy, Medium and Hard diaries as well (to ensure that the best reward is locked behind the entire diary). Experience lamps are in the same reward system, so they will be awarded when the prior diary sections are completed as well. With this change, the most optimal way to complete your diaries is in order from Easy -> Hard. Chambers of Xeric reward additions: Twisted horns can now be obtained from the Chambers of Xeric! These horns can be attached to a Slayer helmet to turn it into a Twisted slayer helmet (as well as the imbued version). The horns are also tradable and can be bought and sold between players. This reward is rolled for separately from other rare items, and will not affect your chance of obtaining other loot such as the Twisted bow. The rate of obtaining the horns is similar to the Prayer scroll drop rate, though slightly more difficult. The horns have been added to the Collection log for CoX. Bug fixes: Achievements: Experience lamps are no longer affected by boosts. A purple chatbox message will be sent with the exact reward you receive from the Achievement manager. You can now view all of the items in the Achievement store (total of 48). Previously, it would max out at 39 items shown. You can now "value" all items in the Achievement store. Previously, you could only check the price of the first 10 items. The typo of "Saladomin" in the Falador elite diary task has been fixed. Fixed a bug with the smoke devil task not working properly. Clarified where players should be picking snape grass for the Fremennik easy diary task. Added a clarification on the crystal seed achievement. Fixed a bug where checking the health of a redwood tree would increase the wrong achievement. Fixed a bug with the Bedabin camp dragon dart task. The "Complete 10 Elite clue scrolls" achievement was only requiring 1 clue to be completed, and now requires 10 as intended. Fixed a bug where killing dawn would count towards the achievement to kill Grotesque Guardians. Fremennik boots 3 + 4 removed from Loyalty point shop. Bandits at Bedabin camp should no longer break, and the ones outside of the bar will also count towards the Bandit task in the Desert diary. Players who have the Ava’s accumulator or assembler max cape will now have the Accumulator achievement auto-completed. Replaced the duplicate red berries in the Herblore supplies shop with Jangerberries. Name change ticket fix: Any pending donations in your collection box will now transfer over to your new username. Previously, any pending donations would be attached to the old username. The slayer's staff(e) can now auto-cast magic dart. Fixed a bug where Wilderness swords would only slash webs with 100% accuracy if they were in your inventory. They will now always slash webs as long as they are equipped. Giant mole will no longer do any damage if players are protecting from melee. Opening the Elven Crystal Chest no longer grants 500 experience in crafting/smithing. Fixed a bug where purchasing the quest cape would give players 2 quest cape hoods instead of the quest cape (t). Fixed a bug with the mithril dragon staircase. Fixed a bug with the Occult (or) not having the proper item value. The ::laps command now properly counts Gnome and Barbarian agility course laps. The Antifire/Super-antifire client timers will now be removed upon death. Rune knife (p++) placeholder will no longer appear as a Dagon'hai hat. The Dragon hunter lance boost now applies at Wyrms and Drakes. Previously, if you noted a Blue wizard hat, you could not unnote it. This is now fixed. Fixed a Wilderness godwars dungeon safespot. Fixed a bug where the Elite Void set in the armour case wouldn't store the void gloves. Players can no longer create a rune crossbow with Sinew. The proper method of doing so is with a crossbow string, which can be made by spinning the sinew. Removed monkfish spot from fishing guild. Returned the anglerfish spot back to the wilderness resource area. Fixed the “Trade” right click option on Paul. Fixed a bug where having Wesley crush Lava scales would only provide 1 Lava scale shard per scale crushed. Fixed a bug with the thieving stalls at home doing weird things when thieved from. Players can now store the adamant kite shield (t) and (g) with the adamant armor sets in their POH Treasure Chest. Fixed a bug where players would get Hellhounds in the Karuulm dungeon before they had 44 slayer for the Boots of Stone. Players will no longer receive Metamorphic dust in the Theatre of Blood if they already have obtained it. Quality of life: Added the teleport options to the equipment interface for the following items: Rada’s blessing 1 Rada’s blessing 3 Rada’s blessing 4 Increased the max damage players can do to Zalcano by 5. Added the Arclight to Skotizo’s drop table. There is an ~1/30 chance of receiving it from Skotizo, whether in the Catacombs or the wilderness. Added a new command for suggestions. ::suggestion/::suggestions can be used in-game to be redirected to the suggestions section of the forums. The bank behind the castle in Etceteria now functions properly. Enchanting jewelry is now a repeating process, so jewelry of the same type(ex: Onyx bracelets) will repeatedly be enchanted unless the action is disrupted. Added a right-click “Crush” option to Wesley so players can crush their secondaries and skip the dialogue. Divine potions will now warn the users when they wear off. A command to go to the Achievement guide, made by @[member=vape tricks] has been added. Players can type ::achievementguide or ::achievements guide in-game to be redirected to the achievement diary guide. Miscellaneous: The remaining Christmas features have been removed.(Login screen music, Varrock Christmas tree, Partyhat pets, etc) Discord bot fix: The #game_news channel was previously not showing drop announcements for players who had spaces in their usernames. This has been fixed. Slayer changes: Tztok-Jad tasks will now be assigned as single-kill extreme tasks. Dying/leaving the fight caves during the task will cause you to fail the task. Failing the q task will not cause you to lose your streak. Players will now be assigned 60-95 aberrant spectres, as opposed to 6-45 previously. Leprechaun tool exchange: The tool leprechaun now supports withdraw “5”, “all”, and “x” optional amounts for buckets/compost/supercompost. The tool leprechaun now supports store “5”, “all”, and “x” optional amounts for buckets/compost/supercompost. Client changes: Hide pet client option. Players can now go into their client settings, and choose to hide the options from their pets. If they toggle this option, they won’t be able to left-click on their pet to interact with them, and will only be able to examine them. Additionally, even though you can't click on other players' pets, you can now at least examine them and see what their name is. Virtual levels toggle: Players can now go into their client settings and choose to toggle virtual levels. Virtual levels allow you to visualize your progress after level 99, which shows the “virtual” level that you would be in a given skill if the max level was 126. This is just cosmetic, and has no effect in-game or on total level. Condense items toggle: This feature will condense duplicate items in item piles when right clicking, so instead of seeing 2 rows for 2 fire capes on the ground, what you’d see instead is “Fire Cape (2)”, and one examine option for both items. Show Item amounts toggle: This feature will allow you to see the amount of stackable items when right clicking on item piles. For example, if there was a coin pile with 300k coins, when you right click it, you would see “Coins (300,000)”. Item overlay changes: Players can now hold shift to add and remove items from their item overlay list. Remembering resizable client size: The latest position/resize of the client will be remembered so that players no longer have to reset it when opening the client. OpenGL updates: Mac fix: We've changed the way OpenGL loads on your device, making it less prone to failing on Mac OS. Linux support: We've also added a fix OpenGL on Linux, thought this hasn't been tested. Render self command: Players can now type ::renderself to choose whether or not they want their player model to be visible. You’ll still be visible to other players, however you won’t be able to see yourself. Inferno training perk: Uber+ donators will now have the opportunity to practice the inferno starting at wave 67. Master donators will now have the opportunity to practice the inferno starting at wave 68. By speaking to Tzhaar-Ket-keh outside of the inferno (once paying the fire cape fee), players may ask him to practice the inferno. Players can choose to start either at the Triple Jad phase, or the last wave right away. Completing the inferno in this training mode will not award any Tokkul, infernal capes, inferno kill counts, inferno kill times, and will not complete the inferno achievement. This is also a safe death for HCIM who wish to practice the Inferno. Group Ironman Integrity changes: Group Ironmen can now only kick someone from their team once every 30 days, rather than the previous 7-day cool down. This is to deter item transferring between non-group members. We’ve seen many players abuse the integrity of the game mode by buying/selling items by switching groups temporarily, and therefore have added a limit and longer cool down period for switching groups, which will hopefully deter most players from doing this. Group Ironmen now have a hard limit of joining 5 groups over the lifetime of their accounts — if they have changed groups 5 times then they are no longer considered a Group ironman and must play solo. (Or remain in their final group, if they do not get kicked out). If you are currently in a group, that will be counted as 1/5 and you have 4 joins left. Farming guild changes: There were some issues in the past with Farming guild contracts not working properly, which created issues, especially with easy tasks that players could not cancel. We’ve adjusted the level requirements for all farming guild contracts to follow the level requirements listed in the wiki link below: https://oldschool.runescape.wiki/w/Guildmaster_Jane#Farming_contracts Players now require the following levels to complete each contract tier: Easy contracts: 45+ Farming Medium contracts: 65+ Farming Hard contracts: 85+ Farming Players should no longer get tasks that require them to enter sections of the Farming guild that they do not have the requirements for. For example, in the past, players would get assigned a herb task on an easy contract, without the necessary level to enter the section of the farming guild that contained herb patches, making the contract impossible to complete. A bug that caused players to not be able to complete a contract if they ran out of inventory space on their last yield has also been fixed. Theatre of Blood QoL: Passage fix: The passages between ToB rooms were quite buggy, and would stop your character's movement and say "I can't reach that!" if you clicked on the door from the wrong angle. Maiden fix: Running into the Maiden room will now give a few seconds before the Maiden attacks you, giving you time to run up and not get hit until you can fight back. This only counts for the first hit, and players entering later on will still receive damage no matter where they are in the room. Call pet option: Players can now use the “call follower” option in the equipment interface to summon their pets if they’re more than 5 steps away. Menagerie changes: The following changes have been made to the pet house: Oak pet house now stores 3 pets. Teak pet house now stores 5 pets. Mahogany pet house now stores 7 pets. Consecrated pet house now stores 9 pets. Desecrated pet house now stores 12 pets. Nature pet house now stores 52 pets. Due to the changes to the pet houses, the only the first 12 pets you have in your pet house will spawn and move around. The pet list now includes the pets in your menagerie. Players can now use their pets directly on the pet house to deposit them. Guests can now view the pet list of the owner’s house. Iban’s staff (u): Players can now speak to Aubury to upgrade their Iban’s staff to an Iban’s staff (u) for 3 million coins. Players will need an Iban’s staff in their inventory to ask Augury about it, and playing him 3m coins will upgrade the staff you have to an Iban’s Staff (u), and set your charges to 2,500 casts. No runes will be required to cast the spell if you have charges. When the charges run out, the staff will degrade to a regular Iban’s staff. The Iban’s staff (u) will autocrats Iban’s blast. Note: The charges are account dependent, and NOT staff dependent, so for example, upgrading a second Iban’s staff with Aubury with 1,000 charges left will mean you gain 1,500 charges instead of the full 2,500. Clue scroll changes: 3 new coordinate clues have been added in the Kourend area. 1 new cryptic clue has been added in the Kourend area.
Website: Media page: The Merch page has been removed and replaced by the new media page which can be found below: https://www.alora.io/features/
Store: Inverted Santa hat: A brand new, never before seen Santa hat with the red and white colours inverted has been added to the store! This Santa hat costs 1,500 tokens and is tradable. It can also be purchased by Ironman/Realism players. New Bonds ($50 / $100): To make trading donations less tedious, the following bond denominations are now available for purchase: $50 bonds: These cost 500 tokens, and add $50 to total spent (as well as removing $50 from the purchaser's rank). $100 bonds: These cost 1,000 tokens, and add $100 to total spent (as well as removing $100 from the purchaser's rank). Note: The cost to convert these bonds scales with the price, so a $10 bond is 5m to convert, while the other two are 25m and 50m, respectively. Bonds have also been changed from (100 tokens) -> ($10) in the name. Miscellaneous: Gold leafs can now be purchased by Ironmen.
We hope you enjoy this update! :) Please report any bugs that you run into.
