#167731 Dutchie's QoL suggestions

Posted by Dutchie on 03 March 2018 - 03:31 PM

Hi,

 

 

I'd like to make a small list of suggestions that hasn't been added yet.

 

 

Misc QoL

      Add/working Costume room (for storing Clue scroll/capes and more)
      Add the Angler's outfit (provides 2.5%+ bonus Fishing experience when worn) 
      Add the Rogues' outfit (while wearing pieces of the Rogues' armour there is a chance on getting twice the loot from an NPC, with the full Rogues'            outfit guaranteeing the loot).

      When you move your PoH portal (spawn loc) to a different location in your PoH, it'll still teleports back to your old PoH spawn loc and not the new.

        Add Barrows points to the points tab (under Pest Control points/Vote points etc)

latest.png?width=25&height=17  Raw karambwanji should be stackable

latest.png?width=27&height=26  We're not able to runecraft Soul runes. Spawn spot should be the same tiles away like the Blood altar

latest.png?width=18&height=18    When you wear the Ring of Stone, you should transform into a emptied rock
latest.png?width=17&height=19    Ring of wealth should pick up cash and tokkuls automatically when worn.

latest.png?width=28&height=28 Add the Falador shield 4; Mole locator, 10% more Farming experience from the Falador farm (maybe add Prayer recharge twice a day) (thanks Raud Kukkel

          Able to use Ring of Recoils on the Ring of Suffering & (i) for the Ring of Recoil effect (thanks Ye its me )
latest.png?width=17&height=27     Not able to teleport to Karamja/Al-kharid with the Amulet of Glory

  • Add boss timers
  • Add Chamber of Xeric's (RAIDS) overload timer
  • Move the raids damage counter from top left to top right (not able to see the damage) click HERE to see the differences

        

 

       Change total level 2279 to 2277 (still not fixed)
         Change the xp in each skill, as example: 163439012 to 163,439,012       
       Make the experience fit in the XP drops bar (OLD: fccafb02231b42cc6893ae093976b76e.png) (NEW: a523a4172d9ce6ded085abf51442e937.png)     

latest.png      Add Zahur who can make your cleaned herbs into unfinished potions (you take noted vial of waters and the specific cleaned herb)

latest.png Add drop notification so we actually no need to check out our drops on the ground instead of just looking the notification in the chatbox of what drop we got.

latest.png Make it so you can get noted Wyvern bones (unlockable from Dragon Slayer 2)

latest.png Ornate rejuvenation pool should get a timer next to the Bonus XP timer (so we actually can see how many seconds to regenerate) credits to Klassieker

 

latest.png Bones to Peaches (makes trips longer) 

latest.pnglatest.png?width=15&height=28 Teleport to House (teleports you to your POH if you're on Lunar/Ancients spellbook).
Construction cape should be able to teleport you to your POH also. (by right-clicking it).

latest.png Mist Battlestaff should provide unlimited Air & Water runes (not working)

 

Yell 

Remove Ancient Crystal/Dragon 2h sword/Marble blocks/Magic stone

latest.png latest.png Add Tanzanite/Magma mutagen to the yell announcement 

 Correct the pet name drops:
       Vet'ion purple jr > Vetion Jr
       Kalphite green  > Kalphite Princess 

       Green snakelingPet snakeling

 

 

Bounty hunter shop/Player vs. Player QoL
latest.png Cleaning cloth usable to remove Volanic/Frozen whip to regular whip

latest.png Add Granite clamp (to make Granite maul (or)) to the PKP shop (not only Slayer shop)

latest.png Add Steam battlestaff (or) to make the cosmetic staff add it to the PKP shop

latest.png Make it so it's not a Player vs. Monster death for pkers who die to an ironmen. They basically risk whatever they like fighting ironmen, because they can instantly lot their items back.

 

 

Player vs. Monster QoL
      Add Thermonuclear Smoke Devil instance

      Add Opal, Jade & Red Topaz jewellery. (click HERE for what I mean)
      Able to attack the Aviansies in the (Wilderness) Godwars dungeon 
& you you're able to kill Kree' Arra as Aviansies task (extendable)
      Add the Fremennik Kurasks upper level (Slayer assignment only)

     Change the pet droprate of the new God bosses; God's Battalion to 1/65
latest.png Fix Trident (no correct damage vs Dagannoth Rex)

latest.png Arclight (STATS)

 latest.png Able to teleport back to Zulrah pier after you kill the Zulrah there should be a teleportation on the ground.

latest.png Shayzien armour protection (has been approved months ago, but still not added)
latest.png Guaranteed 1/50 droprate for Vorkath head (took me 193 kills for 1 Vorkath head which is ridiculous)

latest.png Add Cave horrors to 'Hard task'

      Add extended slayer tasks (boss tasks 6-35 instead of 6-21)

      Rework assigning slayer tasks, I'm pretty sure the task system isn't corrrect. (example; had to assign like 80-100 tasks before getting my first                  Abyssal demon task)

Able to use the Key master teleport which teleports you into the Cerberus lair (also increase the drop rate of them)
Cerberus should be able to respawn like 8-12 seconds right after you kill it, this increases your kills an hour and more efficient to kill, same for the            Kraken.

 Able to autocast with the Ahrim's staff

 Able to autocast with the Iban's staff 

 Able to autocast with the Slayer's staff and being able to cast the Magic dart spell
 After you caught many Grey/Red/Black chinchompas, there's still no use for them. Let people carry them and kill the skeletons in the Ape Atoll Dungeon. This will get you a bunch of Ranging/Hitpoints experience and you don't have to throw them away.
 

 

Friends chat/Clan chat QoL

The rank you are in the clanchat should appear next to your name 

d08dcc222280bde2a51a0241cce7fa33.png instead of this a4afb1257b1c36fbc41922a2d564e9a1.png

latest.png 400 friends list instead of 200 
Make it so you can clear the private history

latest.png

 

 

Untradeables shop QoL
 latest.png = 1m and latest.png  = 500k to reclaim (makes no sense)
 stackable items (
LINK) should be like this (LINK)

 

 

 

Farming QoL
latest.png Add noted super/ultracompost to Leprechaun
latest.png Able to note cleaned herbs (you can only note Grimy herbs now)

latest.png Able to plant Whiteberry seed
latest.png Add ultracompost
latest.pnglatest.png Add Trollheim/Harmony Island/Kourend farming patches

latest.png Able to plant Spirit seeds for an amount of xp, because there's no use for them atm
latest.pnglatest.png Working Explorer ring/Ardougne cape 4 (teleports you nearby Falador/Ardougne herb patches)

latest.png Add Seed box
latest.png Add the Magic secateurs (increases crop yield of herbs, allotments, grape vines and hops by 10%) can be purchased from the Achievement point store for 200 points(?)

latest.png Add Fertile Soil which does the same as ultracompost but would be a nice alternative way
 Add the Farmer's outfit which will give you a total of +2.5% bonus experience towards Farming (idk if ever someone bought this as a Custom donation, if not why not add this ingame?)
 

Bugs/glitches
When you add irit leafs to vials of water, it says ''spirit weed potion (unf)'' instead of ''irit potion (unf)

 

 

 

More suggestions can be added anytime




#247513 Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

#214659 Scheduled Maintenance (Planned Downtime on September 4th)

Posted by Omicron on 03 September 2018 - 01:03 PM

Hello everyone,

I’d like to inform you that Alora will soon be undergoing major backend changes and switching hosts to improve our uptime, latency, and DDoS protection. I’m sure some of you may have noticed random disconnections or increased latency periodically, and we’ve decided to address this while simultaneously changing the way that clients communicate with our servers to improve our defences against malicious attacks.

The server migration will take some time, and although we’re not 100% sure how long it will be offline for, we are estimating that the website and game will both likely be unavailable for 2-3 hours.

On the bright side, we’ve split the login servers up in multiple countries, and when you play you will be automatically routed through the closest one to you (with the lowest ping), which will reduce latency tremendously for our players who are in North America / Australia, and may also improve for some EU players depending on your location. We are also moving to a host with generally better connection speeds, uptime and less latency.

The downtime is scheduled to begin later tonight, September 4th at 12AM EST / 4AM server time.

Although the downtime is no fun, we assure you that we'll be working on getting things back and running as soon as possible!

We appreciate your patience :)

Best regards,
Omicron

"ICE" is a result of a merge between CLC and Iron Help. This clan's main goal is to provide a great experience to everyone, focusing more on Classic and Ironman GameModes (Every type of player is more than welcome regardless). Our CC is 100% Public and everyone is more than welcome to join. But to have a rank, you must apply on this thread so that the staff team knows that you want to be a part of ICE's ranks. The ICE Staff Team takes into consideration advertising, behavior, and CC/Discord activity when evaluating if a player is deserving of a rank/promotion.

 

Please use this template when applying for rank:

icerules.png

 

 

  • Follow the Server Rules (Click Here to read the Alora Rules)
  • Respect and treat clan members how you wish to be treated, arguments will not be tolerated.
  • Activity is key, try to remain active in the CC and Discord as much as possible.
  • You can only apply for a rank in ICE if you have NO TIES WHATSOEVER to another clan. Exceptions to this rule are VERY RARE. This is mainly to prevent Moles/Spies.

Like our CC, everyone is more than welcome to join the ICE Discord Server! If you would like to join, PM one of our Star Rank Staff Members on the Forums, In-Game, or on Discord for a link to join.

Hope we'll all stick together as long as possible.  <3
 
I have seen a lot of people come and go in these 2 years as well as in the staff team, I'm still talking to some of those, I've met a ton of great individuals, I do not regret it. Much love to those as well. ;)
 
And at last of course the community, without the community we're nothing, I would like to thank each and everyone of you, everyone participated in what Alora is today. :D

#190289 Omicron Thank You Video

Posted by Lowkey on 02 June 2018 - 01:34 PM

Hey guys,

 

Huge shout to members of #Ice, #Peeks and the current Staff Team for helping with the creation of this video. This was our little way of showing our apprectiation towards Omicron and how dedicated he has been to Alora since the day we released nearly 2 years ago. We hope you guys enjoy the video as much as we did making it.

 




#252973 PLEASE Activate 2FA & Make Your Password UNIQUE!

Posted by Draisaitl on 06 January 2019 - 04:07 PM

Hey everyone.

 

Here at Alora, our number 1 priority is the well being of our players. We do everything within our power to keep you guys safe and can assure you that our database is rock solid and secure. However, we can not say the same for other communities that might have your login information in their database and keeping their database secure is outside of our control. Getting hacked is a very real thing in the RSPS scene and it can happen to anybody.

 

This being said, I would like to stress the importance of activating 2FA and changing your Alora password to something that is unique and isn't used anywhere else. The Alora Staff Team works day in and day out to combat hackers and keep your accounts safe for you. But activating 2FA and making a unique password makes this much easier and keeps your account as well as your in-game wealth safe.

 

2FA is the highest level of account security that we offer and if you have it enabled, even if your account is hacked, the chance that a hacker can get to your items is severely reduced. Not to mention that for those that have 2FA enabled, vote books give bonus XP. It's a win-win.

 

Click Here for a guide on how to set up 2FA.

You can change your Password under the UserCP settings on the Forums.

 

If you have any questions or issues at all with your Password or 2FA, Click Here to make a Support Ticket or simply PM a Staff Member.

Alora Administration Team.




#243019 [12/12/18] Classic mode changes, 3rd age changes, Holiday Sale, LMS improveme...

Posted by Omicron on 12 December 2018 - 05:16 AM

Hello everyone, 

 

Today’s update brings the first part of our Holiday updates, including a 30% bonus token sale, the elusive Santa suit being available in the store, and, of course, the arrival of snow on Alora! Keep an eye out for a Christmas giveaway with IRL prizes to be won, as well as an in-game Christmas event. 

 

Aside from the festivities, this update brings the content that you voted for in the recent polls, the Classic mode changes and the clean slate for 3rd age equipment. This should bring value to the 3rd age economy, as those items will be much more rare from here on out. We’ve reimbursed the current holders of 3rd age equipment by giving them caskets to open based on the rarity of their equipment.

 

Lastly, we’ve implemented some changes to Last Man Standing to hopefully keep it active and worth playing. Firstly, every 3 games, a free (casual) match will be announced. Additionally, a point system has been added, with a reward shop which you can access by speaking to Lisa. Lastly, the Leaderboard next to the LMS lobby is now functional. Aside from this, we’ve also included a few bug fixes and QOL updates!

 

  • Store sale:
    • For a limited time, all store purchases will receive 30% bonus tokens! Make sure to take advantage of this sale from today all the way through to December 27th, 2018.
    • The Santa outfit has been added to the shop for a limited time. This outfit, which is now tradable, can be purchased for 2,500 tokens.

 

 

  • Classic mode changes:
    • Due to popular request, we’re making some changes to the Classic game mode to hopefully revitalize it and to make it appeal to more players. As many of you know, the release of Elite Ironman lessened the Classic population, with many people preferring to play with a single partner rather than to be part of the Classic economy.
      • How are we changing the Classic game mode?
        • We’re opening the economy of Classic mode, and making it so that you can trade with normal players, use the normal Trading post, use the Donation store, etc. The current Classic economy is not large enough to sustain itself, and with these changes, we’re hoping that this becomes a game mode very similar to the Normal game mode, but with the same low XP rates that many of you prefer to play on. There isn’t currently a low XP rate “normal” game mode, so we’re hoping that Classic can fill this role, and that we can breathe a new life into the game mode.
      • List of all changes:
        • Classic can now trade with normal players, use the Normal trading post, and use the normal donation store. They can also now PK other players and pick up their loot.
          • Any items on the Classic trading post have now been merged to the normal trading post.
        • Classics will now receive the same amount of GP from NPC drops, money caskets, thieving, etc. as normal players.
        • Classics now have a new sword that they can wear to show off their status, the Classic sword (Prop sword on OSRS). This sword is solely cosmetic.
        • Classics can now use normal shops.
        • Well of goodwill contributions are no longer doubled for Classics.
    • Classic sword added:
      • This cosmetic sword is an item that only Classic mode players may possess, and signifies their rank without them having to say a word.
        • You can collect this sword for free from Paul at home.
          • New Classic players will receive this sword after their starter tutorial.

 

 

  • Clue scroll/Impling jar changes:
    • Clue scrolls are now slightly less common across the board.
    • Clue bottles from fishing are now slightly less common.
    • Clue scrolls from Bird’s nests are now slightly less common.
    • Your clue scroll completion counter now goes up as soon as you receive a casket, not as soon as you open it. This is due to the fact that many caskets were just added into the game (see below), and we don’t want those to affect clue completion counts.
    • Clue scroll caskets will now announce when a player receives a Clue hunter piece or a 3rd age item.
    • Impling jars will now announce when somebody obtains a 3rd age item.
  • 3rd Age changes:
    • 3rd age is now extremely rare from Clue scrolls and Lucky implying jars.
    • 3rd age armour has been removed from the game. Anyone who previously had any gear will receive a clue scroll casket depending on the type of 3rd age piece. As 3rd age is much more rare now, it will be difficult to receive another piece, but it gives current holders a chance.
      • The only exceptions are the 3rd age hatchet and pickaxe, which are currently custom items. 
        • The following lists show which items are given by each type of casket:
          • Easy casket items:
            • 3rd age range coif
            • 3rd age range vambraces
            • 3rd age mage hat
            • 3rd age full helmet
            • 3rd age amulet
          • Medium casket items:
            • 3rd age range top
            • 3rd age range legs
            • 3rd age kite shield
          • Hard casket items:
            • 3rd age robe top
            • 3rd age robe bottoms
            • 3rd age plate body
            • 3rd age platelegs
          • Elite casket items:
            • 3rd age cloak
            • 3rd age longsword
            • 3rd age bow
            • 3rd age wand

 

 

  • Snow:
    • Snow has covered Alora! You can disable the snow by typing ::snow.
  • Combat changes:
    • Bolt special attacks now have a 10% higher chance of activating if you have completed all achievements.
      • This is typically a perk that is obtained with the Kandarin diary on OSRS, though this not available on Alora so we have swapped it for achievement completion.
      • A tip message has been added in-game to notify players of this perk.
  • Venom/poison changes:
    • Both are no longer ‘instant’, and after receiving the “You have been poisoned!” message, the damage will appear after a few seconds rather than immediately.
    • The chance of envenoming a player or NPC has been corrected:
      • The Toxic staff of the dead and Trident of the swamp can no longer apply Venom with melee attacks, only through Magic.
      • In PvM. — chance to inflict venom:
        • Wearing a Serpentine helmet:
          • Venomous weapon = 100% chance
          • Poisonous weapon = 50% chance
          • Regular weapon = 16.7% chance
        • Not wearing a Serpentine helmet:
          • Venomous weapon = 25% chance
      • In PvP — chance to inflict venom:
        • Venomous weapon = 25% chance.
      • Death bug:
        • When dying to venom, there was a chance your items on the ground would not last as long. This has been fixed.
  • Price changes:
    • Many items’ exchange prices have been fixed, they will now represent the price more accurately. This is calculated by data collected over the past few months from the Trading Post history.
  • Miscellaneous:
    • The ‘Craft 500 Wrath runes’ daily task actually only required 300. This has been fixed.
    • Baby implings will now give Pure essence rather than regular essence.
    • The Clown costume has been fixed and no longer says ’Null’.
    • When attempting to click the “Show XP drops” button, the bugged “Look North” button would overlap it. This will no longer happen, and both button boundaries have been fixed.
    • February 2018 PvM Cup winners added to the Cup in Edgevile. 
      • (King purple, Not a Nerd, Syms, Hot Pies, F 8)
    • Untradable reclaim item fixes (will now appear in Lost items manager’s items):
      • Crystal shield - 400k
      • Crystal bow - 400k
      • Infernal axe - 500k
    • Items that were untradable, but are now tradable as intended:
      • Guthan’s helm 0
    • Santa outfit is now tradable.
    • The Chaos Altars in level 12 and level 38 Wilderness will no longer allow you to switch your spell book, and will only recharge your prayer instead.
  • Killtime record fixes:
    • Killtime records were bugged when a player would attack a target with a multi-combat spell (barrage) or attack (eg. Chinchompa ranging) and the surrounding NPCs that are hit would not ‘register’ a start time, leading them to have super short kill times.
      • This should no longer occur, and we’ve had to reset all affected killtimes. This means that a few monster kill times have been wiped, but this does not affect any mini-games such as the Inferno or raids.

 

 

  • Last Man Standing changes:
    • Leaderboard:
      • A leaderboard has been added near the Last Man Standing lobby. This will list the players with the most LMS wins, as well as the number of games they’ve played and their win ratio.
        • This data is only collected as of this update, so the highscores are clean.
    • Point system:
        • Last Man Standing points have been added! This will hopefully keep the game alive and give players incentive to play.
        • You’ll get points based on your performance in the mini-game (even if it’s a free casual match!):
          • 10 points per kill
          • A # of points based on your final placement/position, and the number of players that were in the match:
            • (startingPlayerCount - placement) * 2
              • For example, if 20 players arrived on the island, and you ended in 2nd place:
                • (20 - 2) * 2 = 36 points
        • You can now trade Lisa to see the reward shop, which contains the following items:
          • Last man’s cloak - 5,000 points
            • This item is a unique cape that can only be obtained from Last Man Standing.
          • Imbuement scroll - 1,500 points
          • Royal seed pod - 1,000 points
          • Antidote++ (3) - 10 points
          • Antifire potion (3) - 6 points
        • Note:
          • This shop and reward system is still being tested and subject to change. If you have any suggestions, please let us know!
    • Other Additions:
      • Free game every 3 games:
        • Every 3 paid games, one free casual match will be held (and announced). You can still receive points and improve your ranking in this casual match.
      • ::checklms command has been added. This command allows you to list how many players are still alive on the island, and their names.
      • Winner announcement:
        • The winner of every game will be announced to the world, as well as the amount that they have won (if applicable).
      • Survivors in lobby:
        • Your waiting interface in the lobby will now tell you how many survivors are remaining in the current game.
      • Item on shrine:
        • You can now use your items on the Vending shrines to sell them quickly. If you only have 1 of that item, it will instantly sell. If you have multiple items, a dialogue in your chatbox will pop up to ask you how many you’d like to sell.
      • Bug fixes:
        • Players getting the error message ‘You cannot join with a pet’ while not having any pet at all has been fixed.
        • Resting in the fog will no longer stall/cancel damage.

#239489 Resignation

Posted by Salter on 29 November 2018 - 03:00 PM

Hello Alorians,

 

I have decided to temporarily resign from my position as Administrator.

 

It's been an amazing journey. I can't say for certain when I will be back, but hopefully soon.

I've met so many amazing people throughout my time here on Alora. It has without fail made me the man I am today.

I greatly appreciate every single one of the people that have been on the staff team to help me. I've learned so much from you.

I've been a part of the staff team since 23rd of January and it's been the longest time I've ever spent at one place.

 

The reason I take this step is that I feel like I no longer have the motivation needed to act as a professional and productive staff member.

I've had a few busy months which haven't made it easy. The team is currently very strong and it's just gonna get stronger.

Never, in the history of Alora, has the team looked this promising and strong.

 

I feel like I need to find myself before I can rejoin.

I will always appreciate what certain individuals have done for me these past months.

I won't name any names, but I am certain that you know who you are.

 

I will be forever grateful for the opportunity I had here on Alora and I hope the work I did was satisfactory.

 

I will miss you all dearly.

 

Best regards,

~Salter

#231248 My resignation from the Staff team :)

Posted by Loo on 04 November 2018 - 10:36 AM

Hello Everyone,

I'll try and keep this as short as possible! I've had this feeling linger for a little bit, but it comes and goes. This is my official resignation; I've loved absolutely ever second of it, but i'm not going to lie to you.. In life I definitely give it my all, and if I feel like i'm not giving it 100% I feel disappointment. For example (as of this post) I work full time hours, co-own the huge clan ICE, grinding the EIM highscores and currently a Global moderator on the staff team. One part that should be added to the list is gym like I used to, but I feel overwhelmed currently to the point i'm negating this and even absence from my irl buddies that I used to go out with all the time. I spend every available second of my day logging onto Alora so I don't feel useless but i've had a reality check and feel as if resigning will enable me to balance out my life so I feel full again. I'm very proud of my work ethic, so I feel I don't give the staff team enough of my commitment therefore I don't deserve to keep my role there and I feel they're so many talented staff members to take my place! Post writing this post, my activity won't go down a tonne nor am I signing off completely, i'm just taking small steps to be able to build happiness in my life; This is not Alora's fault or any players specifically, this is my own fault and not prioritising myself. I would like to shoutout the ENTIRETY of the staff team for the hard work they provide, reminder for any non staff member.. This is voluntary work, it's amazing to see a bunch of individuals pump out so much work just as a hobby. Without them this whole system would crash. So in future when anybody believes corrupt stuff is going on, or that the staff team "don't care" you couldn't be further from the truth. @Lowkey @King purple @Not Hellish @hsoJ @Scuffed EIM You guys have had a huge impact on my life I could say, you've guided and shaped me into the player I am today on Alora and I couldn't thank you enough in words. @Draisaitl @Salter @Dante @Sheep @Omicron @To Gain @Code 002 @Moe @EIM 1gp @ServerMod @Serversupport Continue what you're doing, you're doing a fantastic job and I can see most of you with a bright future in the staff team.

Honourable mentions: @Kaamea @Jare

Loo signing off as a staff member, peace xoxo




#222923 The Veteran Rank

Posted by Draisaitl on 06 October 2018 - 01:02 PM

Hello everyone.

Today we will be making a few changes to our Veteran rank. To those who are unfamiliar, the Veteran rank is a rank/award that is awarded to members who have both been around the game for a while as well as shown a positive presence within the community. This being said, we will be changing up the requirements a bit to better represent what the rank is supposed to really mean.

If you wish to apply for the Veteran rank, please apply here: https://www.alora.io...1-forum-awards/

vetr1.pngvetr2.png


To apply for the Veteran rank you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must have one year or older registration time.
  • You must have 50 or more days play time in-game.
  • You must have 30 or more days online time on the forums.
  • You must have at least 250 post count on the forums.
  • You must have 0 indiscretions within the last 3 months.
  • You must provide proof that you meet ALL of the requirements.
  • If you apply without having met the requirements, your request will be declined.

In addition, those who currently hold the Veteran rank are held to the following standards:

  • You will not receive an infraction resulting in a ban/mute in-game or losing your ability to post on the forums.
  • You will represent Alora in a positive way at all times.
  • Failure to do so will result in your rank being removed.
  • If your rank is removed, you must wait 3 months before you're eligible to re-apply.

Other:

  • Players may only hold the Veteran rank on 1 account at a time.
  • Anyone who reaches Global Moderator or higher and has left the staff team on good terms are exempt from the normal application requirements.
  • The Administration Team reserves the right to decline/remove the Veteran rank as they see fit.

#222691 Server wide drop party. Celebrating 2 years of Alora!

Posted by Lowkey on 05 October 2018 - 08:09 PM

Hey guys,

 

We are slowly creeping up on Alora being online for 2 years! Since our official release on November 4th, 2016, Alora has became one of the most popular servers and continues to grow every single day. It's crazy how fast time has gone by and what Alora has become over the past 2 years. We have an amazing day planned for you guys next month because without you guys, Alora wouldn't be where it is today. With that being said I would like to personally thank Omicron, the entire staff team and most importantly, the community for an amazing 2 years and more to come.

 

I hosted a drop party at the beginning of the year and we broke 1k players online for the first time since we launched. It was an awesome accomplishment for Alora and everyone that was involved. All details and videos of that drop party can be found here: https://www.alora.io...ide-drop-party/

 

Next months drop party will be bigger, better, and my main goal is to reach 2k players online. I know we can do it with everyone's help. All current details and information on this drop party will be down below, I will be updating this topic regularly if anything changes (including what we will be dropping).

 

 

Date of drop party - 11/4/2018
Location of drop party - ::event (subject to change)
Time of drop party - 3PM EST (8PM Server time)

 

If you wish to donate to this drop party, I will be the only person accepting donations. Pm me in-game or on forums and you will be given a shout out down below and in the video I make of this drop party.

#163834 Regarding Recent Downtime

Posted by Omicron on 18 February 2018 - 11:52 AM

Hey guys,

 

I’d like to sincerely apologize for the lengthy downtime today. An exploit was identified on our website which urgently needed to be fixed, and we took extra time to ensure that we’ve properly patched this exploit for our security and that of all of our users.

 

It is impossible to have a perfectly secure website in today’s world, and as a result, it is something that most, if not all large websites will have to deal with at one point or another. We have done our best to ensure that this issue is patched, and we’ve increased our security to prevent this from happening again in the future. Your account should not have been affected by this, and neither has the trading post or any other website/game functions.

 

While your accounts and all personal data are safe, we will be forcing you to change your password every so often (starting today) and will continue do so in the future so that players do not recycle passwords between Alora and other websites. We are currently setting the frequency of password changes to 60 days and will change this if required.

 

The staff team and I would also like to thank all of you for your patience not only today, but through any road bumps that Alora has had in the past, your support means everything. :)

 

Regards,

Omicron




#255849 [12/01/19] Group Ironman is LIVE! (+Collection Log, Special Attack Orb, a...

Posted by Omicron on 12 January 2019 - 10:56 PM

group_slogan.png

Hey guys,

 

We’re extremely excited to announced that Group Ironman is now live! I’d like to deeply apologize for the significant delay from the announced release time, unfortunately we were not able to meet the deadline while still ensuring that the update was ready to be pushed. I know that many of of you were prepared a few hours ago, and I thank you for your patience since then! Our priority is ensuring that there aren’t any major bugs in new updates, and we’ve taken some extra time for this one considering it is a larger update. Nonetheless, the new game mode is ready to be played, and you can hop right into it! We’ve also included some other cool updates such as the Collection log and some much needed Theatre of Blood updates that we hope you’ll appreciate!

 

 

  • Group Ironman (team) mode is now available!
    • Group Ironman is a new game mode designed for Ironman who have more than one friend that they’d like to partner up with. Here are the details:
      • Experience rate:
        • 6x base rate
          • This rate is slightly faster than Elite Ironman mode (4x) and Classic mode (5x), but not as fast as Hardcore Ironman mode (8x). We think that this is a nice fit for the game mode, as it provides a challenging experience rate, yet it isn’t the most challenging for those of you who simply want to play as part of a group and not be on the most difficult game mode (Elite).
      • Experience bonuses:
        • The same limitations of the Elite game mode apply to GIMs. Typical XP bonuses such as the Well of Goodwill will give 50% of the usual bonus (15% rather than 30%), and Vote books can only be opened once every 12 hours.
      • Group feature:
        • A requested feature not only on Alora, but on OSRS as well, the Group feature will allow you to form a group of 4 other players to join you on your adventure.
          • Your team mates are the only other players you could trade with, and are permanent. Once you reach 5 players total, no new players can be added to the team (or removed).
          • There is no time limit for when you can add players to the team, but once the team is full no changes can be made.
          • You can use the Group Ironman Orb in the house west of Edgeville to configure your team.
      • Highscores: (**The Highscores for Group Ironman will be available within 24 hours**)
      • Vote books:
        • You can only open a vote book once every 12 hours.
        • You cannot open another vote book if you still have bonus XP.
      • Bonds/donations:
        • Bonds are the only item you can transfer from your main to your GIM.
        • The same donation rules that apply to other ironmen/classics apply to GIM (mostly cosmetic only).
      • Clan chat:
        • “Group” clan chat will be auto-joined for GIM players (if not already full).
      • Gold:
        • Similar to Elites, Group Ironmen receive half the usual gold.
      • Bloody keys:
        • Although the poll results were very close, we’ve decided to block GIMs from picking up Bloody keys, at least for the first little while. We very well may allow these to be looted in the near future, though.
      • De-ironing:
        • At the moment, de-ironing is not a possibility for Group Ironmen. This is due to the fact that teams are final, and once 5 players have formed a team it is something that should be permanent. 

 

 

  • Miscellaneous:
    • Spiky d’hide vambraces now all have the correct Ranged level requirements.
    • Fixed some pink pixels that would sometimes flash around the inventory area (visual bug)
    • Fixed a typo when receiving rare loot from a clue scroll (news yell)
    • Default clan chat changes:
      • Upon attempting to enter the “Alora” clan chat, if it is full you will be redirected to a “Help” channel (eg. “Help” or “Help1”).
    • Random events will no longer affect players in the Wilderness, due to them freezing the player and cancelling out combat.
    • The Antisanta outfit is now tradable. (Custom set)
    • KOTS winners from December added to the PvM Cup:
      • (1. Unknown, 2. Sololite, 3. 2 Ridiculous)
    • Mist battlestaff stand and attack animations have been fixed.
    • Mist battlestaff requirements (30 attack 30 magic) have been added.
    • Items such as the Arcane spirit shield will no longer protect over the Elysian spirit shield.
  • Woodcutting improvements:
    • The 3rd age axe can now be used to chop trees.
    • Cutting speed changes:
      • The rate at which you get logs from a tree will now be significantly based on the type of axe you use, with Dragon / 3rd age pickaxes being the fastest to chop with.
      • This won’t bring much change unless you’re using a bad axe.
        • For example, if you’ve been using a Dragon axe to cut Magic logs, you won’t see much of a difference in the rate at which you obtain logs. If you’ve been using a Bronze axe, though, you’ll definitely notice that it takes longer to successfully obtain logs.
  • Christmas removals:
    • The following have been removed from Alora:
      • Christmas event
      • Snow
      • Christmas tree + snowfall objects
      • Christmas giveaway + Haris NPC
  • Abyssal dagger poison:
    • You can now use weapon poison on the Abyssal dagger to convert it to the (p), (p+) or (p++) version.
  • Special attack energy orb:
    • An orb has been added to show you how much special attack energy you currently have.
      • This orb will be hidden along with all the others if you toggle the “Data orbs” setting.
  • Theatre of Blood loot changes:
    • Passage changes:
      • When going through a passage, usually HP and Prayer are restored (as well as any lowered combat skills).
        • We’ve also made it so that special attack energy and run energy is restored, and any poison is cured upon passing through to the next room.
    • Loot changes:
      • We’ve changed the way in which you receive rare loot in the Theatre of Blood, making it more similar to OSRS. Firstly, the rate of obtaining any rare drop from doing a raid has increased across the board by approximately 17%.
      • Aside from this, and being the most major change, we’re changing the percentage chance of obtaining each rare item once you have already hit the rare loot table. The Scythe of Vitur will become much more rare, and certain items (Avernic defender, for example) are becoming much more common.
        • With that being said, these are the approximate percentages of landing each item after this update:
          • 43.5% - Avernic defender
          • 34.8% - Justiciar piece (11.6% chance for each piece)
          • 10.1% - Sanguinesti staff
          • 7.9% - Ghrazi rapier
          • 3.7% - Scythe of Vitur
        • The visual chart below will show you these percentages more clearly. This was calculated based on OSRS rates, but the only difference is that we’ve made all of the Justiciar pieces the same % rate (11.6%) and removed 1% chance from the defender.
        • We have not changed the rate of obtaining Lil’ Zik.
  • Collection Log:
    • The Collection log has been added!
      • You can access your own collection log through the Quest tab, by clicking on the “View Collection Log” button.
      • The collection log tracks your drops from bosses, pets you’ve obtained, minigame items you’ve earned, raids loot, clue loot, slayer unlocks and more! 
      • Any items that are already obtained by you and are untradable will already be counted in the Collection log, but any tradable items (Eg. Abyssal whip) will not show up from previous drops. This is necessary as we can’t be sure whether or not the items that are currently in-game were earned or purchased from other players, and the collection log is designed to only track and count loot that you have earned yourself. To make it fair for everyone, all game modes are starting at the same place (only untradables are unlocked).
        • We’ve attempted to identify combination items as well, for example the Dragon defender (g) will unlock the Dragon defender on first log on. Another example is that if you have the Vorkath slayer helmet, it will unlock Vorkath’s head drop in your collection log.
  • Welcome screen upgrade:
    • Clickable buttons:
      • The email block (top right) can now be clicked to open up your forum inbox.
      • The store/token block (bottom right) can now be clicked to open up the store on the website.
    • Hovers:
      • Both the email block, store block and the “Click here to play” buttons will now all light up when you hover your mouse over them.
  • Well of Goodwill fee increase:
    • Since Alora launched over 2 years ago, we’ve had the same cost for the Well of Goodwill, which is 25m GP per 90 minutes. Considering that the economy is quite established, and 25m is not as costly as it was on launch, we’re raising this amount to 100m GP. We’d like for the well to be more expensive so that the donations stand out and are more appreciated, and there is the added benefit of the extra gold being removed from the game will have a positive effect on the economy.
      • With this change, the announcement for big donations to the well has been increased from 2.5m to 10m.
      • To encourage players to donate items into the well more often, we’re increasing the amount of GP that items are worth to the well by 50%. This means that instead of the item being worth half of the exchange price when donating it, it will be worth 75% of the exchange price.
  • Skill tab update:
    • When hovering over a skill, the numbers will now be formatted.
      • For example
      • Firemaking XP:  100000
        • -> Firemaking XP: 1,000,000
    • When hovering over a skill, you will now be shown the amount of XP remaining until your next level.

 

 

 

  • Forum updates:
    • A partner request sub-forum has been added for players looking for a duo partner for Elite Ironman, or a group for Group Ironman. This is listed under the General Discussion forum.

Hello everyone,
 
Today’s update took longer than usual due to some content being very time consuming, but we’ve made sure to pack a ton of things into it!  The update brings some much needed PvP improvements and bug fixes, as well as some important performance/speed improvements as well as a ton of QOL features such as boss killtime announcements to show when records are broken, arrows above Theatre of Blood chests, and many more QOL/bug fixes. 
 
Lastly, a brand new mini-game is now live! Do you have what it takes to be the Last Man Standing?
  • Performance improvements for EU players:
    • We’ve added a few new connection servers for European players, which should improve latency issues and make the game feel a bit smoother. The previous connection server for EU players was overloaded and not optimal for the smoothest gameplay. 
    • Additionally, a bug was sometimes selecting an entirely inconvenient server  (NA based) for EU players, causing increased latency. All EU players should see slight improvements in ping/lowered latency, which will hopefully help to improve delays felt in item switching, prayer toggling, in PvP situations and in general gameplay. Australia/Asia players may also see a slight improvement, though we do plan to improve connection speeds for Australian players even further in the near future.
      • PLEASE NOTE: To fully take advantage of this, you will need to have the absolute latest client. If you login and you get a red message that says “Your client is outdated!”, you’re still using the same old (and probably slower) connection server.
  • Last Man Standing:
    • The Last Man Standing minigame is now available! Within this mini-game, you will spawn on an island with equal combat stats and no items or equipment except for a spear, and finding valuable items to fight for your life in hopes of becoming the Last Man Standing.
    • Features:
      • Players start with 99 in all combat stats regardless of your combat stats on Alora (you could be level 3). The only exception is your prayer points, which is reduced to 10.
      • You’ll have to loot chests, cupboards and drawers around the island to find equipment and supplies.
      • You can use the Vending shrines, which allow you to sell your items for survival tokens, and to buy certain items from.
      • A dangerous fog will slowly start to surround the island, pushing you to a final location where the battle will end. If you are too deep in the fog, you will begin taking damage at 1 tick, but this will rapidly increase to 10 damage per tick if you do not run back into the safe zone.
      • Defeating a player will earn you a bloody key, which can be used on a previously looted chest/draws/cupboards and still allow you to find loot. On top of this, using one of these keys will restore your hit points to 99.
        • If you defeated one of the final few players (3-5 depending on how big the game is), you will receive a bloodier key. This key is the same as the bloody key, which also restores a bit of prayer, special attack energy, and is guaranteed to give food. Lastly, it also has an increased chance of giving a top tier special attack weapon, and is the only way to get Dragon claws on the island.
      • Occasionally, you’ll receive a broadcast which tells you that a magical loot crate has spawned on the island, denoting its location.
      • Dogs will spawn in certain areas on the island in groups of 3, and can be killed for a chance of receiving Sharks, Prayer potions and Super energy potions.
    • Notes:
      • This minigame can be played at any time with an entrance fee of 1M per player. This money is added to a pot which is divided between the last 2 players standing.
        • 1st place will receive 65% of the pot
        • 2nd place will receive 25% of the pot
      • All prayers can be used regardless of whether you unlocked them, except redemption and protect item which cannot be used at all.
      • You can teleport here by using the Mini-game menu on the Teleport interface, or by typing ::lms.
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Tournament cup updated with October’s EIM tournament.
    • Veterans who are Ironmen or Classics will now also have their respective icon shown next to their yells / clan chat messages, etc.
    • The “Hide all donator icons” button was missing from the settings tab, this has been re-added.
    • The Birthday NPC / cake at home have been removed.
    • Pet insurance fixes:
      • Pet insurance will now work for pets which you have lost by accidentally doing ::empty.
      • Fixed a bug which caused the Mini Vanguard to insure as an Olmlet even though you did not have the Olmlet pet (or metamorphic dust to turn Vanguard into one).
        • NOTE: If you previously had this bug and your Pet insurance only shows Olmlet instead of Mini Vanguard (and you don’t own an Olmlet/Dust) then you may need to re-insure your pet!
    • Grim reaper hood now hides your hair/face.
    • Latest PvM cup winners added to the Tournament cup list.
  • HCIM Death update:
    • If an HCIM dies to a player or NPC, the news announcement will now also say which player or NPC they died to.
  • Pre-update warning:
    • We will now issue a notice approximately 20 minutes before an update, which will disable Raids, Last Man Standing and the Inferno so that players do not get halfway through a raid and then are forced to log off.
      • If you are already in a Raid or any other one of these mini-games, you will be able to finish them within those 20 minutes.
  • Slayer cancel QOL:
    • You can now right-click the Slayer Master and select “Cancel-task” to quickly cancel your task without opening the interface at all. You will still be presented with a confirmation box to make sure you’d like to cancel your task, as well as the point cost (if applicable).
  • Serpentine visage dismantling:
    • You can now dismantle the Serpentine visage for 20,000 Zulrah scales. A warning will be shown before confirming.
  • Alorian donator capes update:
    • The teleport option on this cape will now ask you whether you’d like to teleport to the old Donator zone or the new one.
  • Theatre of Blood changes:
    • Chest arrow QOL + Animation/open chest:
      • An arrow will now be shown above the chest that belongs to you in the reward area. This will make looting easier and not force you to click on every chest, and the player(s) with a purple chest will know immediately that it is theirs.
      • Additionally, players will now play an animation upon “opening” the chest, and the chest will physically open rather than remaining static. This lets all the participants in the room know that their teammates have opened their chests and are ready to move on.
    • Bug fixes:
      • Scythe vitur stand animation fixed:
        • The way that you hold the Scythe of vitur was previously too ‘angular’, and is now held more upright as it is in OSRS.
      • Sotetseg’s special attack (red ball with shared damage) was able to be dodged sometimes, this can no longer be done.
  • Combat fixes/changes:
    • Venom has been added! (See below)
    • Prayer drain had a bug which limited how many points you’d lose per tick. This has been matched to OSRS (tested).
      • Prayer flicking is also more accurate to how it is on OSRS.
    • Dragon claw special attack accuracy has been slightly boosted (~30%)
    • Dragon spear special attack fix:
      • Using this special attack on players that were frozen previously did not ‘push’ them as it is supposed to. This has been fixed.
    • Red bar fix:
      • Previously, any player with 3/99 HP or lower would be completely red barred (no green on their HP bar) making it difficult to know if you KO’d them. This has been fixed, and will reflect their health more accurately, showing a tiny bit of green even at 1/99 HP.
        • This change will apply to both PvP and PvM, and will help to more accurately reflect the HP an enemy has remaining in all situations.
        • We’ve also applied this fix to the enemy info box in the top left corner, so that HP bar will also no longer red-bar.
          • Lastly, for this overlay, if you are fighting a player with more than 99 HP (juggernaut or using saradomin brew) the HP bar will not spill out of the black box and be longer than usual.
    • Halberd attack speed (including Dragon and Crystal) was too fast, and has been slightly slowed down to match OSRS.
    • Magic fixes:
      • Delay fix:
        • Some Magic spells were slightly delayed and not damaging other players quickly enough. We’ve removed this delay and attempted to match everything perfectly to OSRS. The damage (hitsplat) will show up at the same time as before, but the GFX / block animation / enemy retaliation will all happen sooner than before.
      • Specific fixes:
        • Bind/Snare/Entrangle/Freeze spell changes:
        • Multi-spell fixes
          • For multi-spells (eg. Barrage), the multi effects (AoE) will now be calculated earlier so that the players that were next to the target at the time of cast will be affected, but not the players that run in afterwards.
        • Teleblock effect will now apply 1 tick (0.6s) earlier, giving targets less time to teleport away during the spell cast.
    • Range/Melee changes:
      • The defend animation will now show up earlier for melee/ranged attacks.
    • Dark bow fix:
      • The dark bow was firing 1 tick too quickly. This has been fixed, bringing the attack speed to 5.4 seconds, with the rapid mode bringing it down to 4.8 seconds.
      • Additionally, the Dark bow’s special attack has been slightly tweaked. Previously, it guaranteed 8 damage on each hit (or 4 if the player was using Protect from Range). This is still applicable for Dragon arrows, but if you are using any other type of arrow, the damage is 5/3 rather than 8/4.
  • Wilderness changes:
    • Saradomin brews dropped in the wilderness will now be shown after 2x the regular amount of time it takes to show items (2 minutes rather than 1), rather than 10x previously (10 mins).
    • Multi-zone lines fixed for a few areas (matched to OSRS):
      • All of the affected areas are in level 39-46 wilderness:
        • Areas that are now Multi:
          • North of Black chinchompas
          • An area north-east of the lava maze
        • Areas that are now Singles:
          • North of the lava maze, around the Rune ore mining area
          • On the north side of the lava maze, but still within the maze, an area that was previously multi was incorrect.
    • Revenant cave multi-zones fix:
      • The entrances to the revenant caves (both north and south) have a few steps (~5 steps) that are non-multi within the cave, this has been fixed to match OSRS.
    • A gate in level 42 wilderness (Near the ladder to go down to KBD) was occasionally bugged and has been fixed. (one side would open, and the other side would stay closed, example: https://i.imgur.com/0sN4QAN.png)
      • This may inadvertently have fixed other bugged gates in the game, though this is the only one that was reported bugged at the moment.
    • NPC aggressive distance (how close an NPC must be to you to be able to ‘notice’ and attack you) in the wilderness has been reduced, meaning you can walk a bit closer to NPCs without being targeted.
      • Most NPC’s aggression distances were reduced by only 1 step, though some monsters, like bats, have been reduced by 2 steps.
    • Resource area fixes:
      • On logout, players will be placed outside the resource area.
      • If attempting to go through the resource area gate while frozen, you would previously get bugged for a long time. This has been fixed, allowing to to enter while frozen (as long as you are right next to the gate).
  • Royal seed pod added to PK Point Exchange:
    • This pod will allow you to 1-click teleport to the Grand tree up to level 30 Wilderness. It can be used an unlimited number of times.
      • Cost: 2,000 PK points.
      • If lost upon death, it will be sent to the item reclaim shop and can be retrieved for 100,000 coins.
  • Dragon hunter crossbow recolour:
    • The base colours of the Dragon hunter crossbow have been updated to resemble the Great Olm, making it distinguishable from the Dragon crossbow. 
  • Agility QOL:
    • You can now perform alchemy (and other spells, such as plank make) while running to your next Agility obstacle without cancelling your pending agility action.
  • Boss Killtime Record Announcements:
    • Players who beat the previously set Killtime records for Bosses and certain Minigames will now be announced on the yell channel!
      • This includes time records for:
        • All bosses
        • Barrow
        • Raids 1 & 2
        • The Inferno
        • Fight Caves
  • Venom:
    • Venom is now part of the Alora combat system! This is a very important change to note for both PvM and PvP.
      • Venom is a stronger variant of poison, which, rather than decreasing in strength over time, increases in strength. It always starts at 6 damage, and increases by 2 damage every 18 seconds up to a max of 20 damage. It will not go away until it is cured, or until you or your enemy is dead.
        • Curing:
          • Drinking any dose of Anti-poison potion will convert the venom to poison. Then, drinking another sip will fully cure the poison.
          • New potions, such as the Anti-venom potions can cure venom in one sip and provide some immunity (up to 3 minutes for Anti-venom+)
        • Immunity:
          • Wearing a Serpentine helmet will provide permanent immunity to Venom (and poison).
      • Weapons that can inflict venom to players and monsters at a 25% chance:
        • Weapons:
          • Trident of the Swamp
          • Toxic staff of the dead
          • Toxic blowpipe
        • Note:
          • These weapons have a 100% chance to inflict venom on an NPC if also wearing the Serpentine helmet.
      • Monsters that are immune to venom only (but can be inflicted with poison):
        • Chaos Elemental, Dagannoth Prime, Dagannoth Rex, Dagannoth Supreme, Demonic gorilla, Giant Mole, Kalphite Queen, Kraken, Obor, TzTok-Jad, Vet'ion
        • NOTE: All the monsters that are immune to poison (see below) cannot be envenomed either. The difference is that the list above can still be poisoned. 
      • Monsters that can inflict venom on you:
        • Zulrah and its Snakelings
        • Vorkath
  • Poison changes:
    • Poison will now hit players more rapidly, once every 18 seconds as it is in OSRS (decrementing by 1 damage every 4 hits).
      • Previously, poison would only hit you once every minute (approximately)
    • Many NPCs now immune to poison (matched to OSRS):
      • By design, the following NPCs are also immune to Venom:
        • Abyssal Sire, Brutal dragon, Cerberus, Commander Zilyana, Corporeal Beast, General Graardor, Glough, Juvinate, K’ril Tsutsaroth, Keef, Kob, Kree'arra, Kruk, Mithril dragon, Lizardman, Lizardman brute, Lizardman shaman, Great Olm, Scion, Snakeling, Spawn, Smoke devil, Thermonuclear smoke devil, Callisto, Venenatis, Vorkath, Zulrah
  • New Potions and Resources (Related to Venom):
    • Coconut milk:
      • Use a Hammer on a Coconut to get two Coconut halves, then use the pieces on Vials of water to create Coconut milk.
    • Antidote++
      • Creation:
        • Mix an Irit into a vial of coconut milk at 79 Herblore for 177.5 XP.
          • On OSRS, Magic roots are also required to create this potion. Considering Venom is being added to the game quite late, we’re removing the requirement to mix Magic roots into the potion to speed up the amount of Antidote++ potions (and other potions below) being brought into the game.
      • Effect:
        • Cures poison and provides second longest immunity, at 12 minutes. You must drink two sips to cure venom, the second sip will cure poison. This potion is identical to the Superantipoison (which is already in-game) but provides 2x the poison immunity, and is used to create Anti-venom potions (below).
    • Anti-venom:
      • Creation:
        • Mix Zulrah scales and Antidote++ at 87 Herblore for 30 XP per dose. (for 4 dose, 120 XP total)
          • Five scales will create one dose, so 20 scales will be needed to create a four-dose Anti-venom.
      • Effect:
        • Cures venom and poison in one sip. 12 minutes immunity to poison, and one minute immunity to venom.
    • Anti-venom+:
      • Creation:
        • Torstol + Anti-venom at 94 Herblore for 125 XP.
      • Effect:
        • Cures venom and poison in one sip. 15 minute immunity to poison, and 3 minute immunity to venom.
      • Note:
        • Takes 4 ticks to create one potion, unlike other potions which take two ticks.
  • Sky color on OpenGL:
    • The default sky colour on HD mode has been changed to look less bright and blue, and more realistic.

We hope you enjoy this update :) We've taken extra time to test out LMS and the other content in this update, but there's still a chance that there may be a few bugs. If you find any, be sure to let us know by creating a topic in the Bug Report section!

#169220 [9/3/18] God Bosses revision, Vorkath Slayer helmet, Fire surge fix, and many...

Posted by Omicron on 09 March 2018 - 01:37 AM

Hello everyone,

 

Today’s update is mostly focused on getting out some important bug fixes, including some that have been lingering around for quite awhile now. For the next update, we’re working on getting out some content that we’ve been meaning to implement for awhile as well (Fossil island content, Battlestaff crafting, etc.), so make sure to keep an eye out for another update soon!
 
Game updates:

  • World bosses update:
    • Hitpoints on all world bosses has been increased.
      • The fight did not last long enough (usually 15-20 seconds max) for players to get there and participate / obtain the God’s blessing XP bonus.
      • Increase from 750 HP to:
        • 1,750 for Saradomin/Zamorak bosses
        • 2,500 for Guthix boss
    • With the above HP change, the Guthix boss (Derwen) now has better chances of dropping the pet as well as the Staff of Light.
    • The minimum damage required to obtain the God’s blessing has been reduced from 100 damage to 75. This, along with the hitpoints increase, should give most players an opportunity to participate for the blessing.
  • Cooking update:
    • The cooking skillcape bonus (no burn at 99) now works when wearing the Max cape (only the red one — not the variants) or the Completionist monkey.
  • Slayer changes:
    • If you have a Smoke devil task, you can defeat the Thermonuclear smoke devil and it will count towards your task.
      • Additionally, if you have a Dust devil task, you can also kill the Thermonuclear smoke devil and it will count.
    • Black mask (i) can now be unimbued.
  • Staff of light fix:
    • The magic attack bonus for the Staff of Light has been updated to match the TSOTD — +25 instead of +17.
  • Magic fixes:
    • Staff of the dead / Toxic SOTD can now cast Zamorak flames spell.
    • Staff of light can now cast Saradomin strike.
    • Fire surge fix:
      • When using the Tome of Fire while casting Fire surge, the max hit is increased from 24 to 36.
        • This brings the true max hit up to 49 in PvP when using:
          • Tome of fire
          • Occult necklace (10%)
          • SOTD/SOL/TSOTD/Kodai (15%)
          • Ancestral outfit (6%)
          • Imbued god cape (2%)
          • Tormented bracelet (5%) 
        • TOTAL: 38% magic bonus * 36 max hit = 49
          • The max hit in PvM with an imbued Slayer helmet could be as high as 55 with the above gear.
    • Slayer mask/helmet/salve amulet were not properly providing the magic damage bonus. This has been fixed.
  • Range fixes:
    • Crystal bow bonuses have been fixed. It now has +100 Ranged attack and +70 Ranged strength.
  • Vorkath fixes:
    • Vorkath fight:
      • Zombified spawn:
        • Crumble undead would sometimes splash on the Zombified spawn. This can no longer happen.
        • The spawn can no longer be evaded.
      • Antifire effectiveness:
        • Antifire potions/shield will now be slightly more effective in defending against Vorkath.
    • Vorkath’s Turquoise Slayer helmet:
      • The Turquoise Slayer helmet can now be created through one of the following methods:
        • Vorkath’s head + Slayer helmet
        • Vorkath’s head + Slayer helmet (i) (gives Turquoise Slayer helmet (i))
          • Additionally, if you added Vorkath’s head to a regular Slayer helmet, you can then imbue it with an imbuement scroll.
      • Has all the same bonuses from the other Slayer helmets.
      • Can be reclaimed from untradables shop for 400k GP.
  • Farming update:
    • When farming herbs, you will now receive Grimy herbs rather than clean ones. This will give some extra Herblore XP when cleaning herbs, and matches OSRS.
    • Empty watering can added to Ironman supply shop.
  • Bones on altar update:
    • You can now use Superior dragon bones on altars, including POH altars (gilded and otherwise.)
  • Technical:
    • Fixed some bugs that were not allowing users to login at times (stuck on connecting for awhile)
  • Miscellaneous:
    • From the previous update, the donator bonus on the Make Flax spell was not fully applied. It should now work as intended.
    • Fixed a bug which allowed Skotizo to teleport people from the ground floor near ::event up to the top. (During World boss massacre)
    • Event area “safe death” zone slightly expanded.
    • Random events disabled in raids.
    • Fixed Revenant caves entrance saying that you need a minimum of level 40 combat when it is in fact level 50.
  • Yell updates:
    • Youtube icon will now show up in yell.
    • If you are a classic or ironman player but also a donator, your title in yell will now reflect your donator status.
      • For example:
        • Previously (where (*) represents ironman symbol):
          • [<gray>Ironman</gray>](*)Omicron: message
        • Now, assuming I am an Ironman but also a Legendary donator:
          • [<purple>Ironman</purple>](*)Omicron: message

Client update:

  • Page-up button (or Fn+Up on OSX) can now be used by all players to re-enter your previous messages in your chatbox. You can also use Page-down to move through them.
    • This was previously broken for regular players and moderators.
