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
We hope you enjoy this update! :)
