Hello everyone,
We're excited to announce some updates to the PvP/Combat side of Alora, which we haven't given much attention to in awhile. Aside from tweaking the combat system, fixing dead clicks and patching up numerous bugs, we've also added a full tournament system which allows staff members to host a tournament and select the loadout that all participants will use, which will then match up players in 1v1 fights and continue to pair up the winners until there are only 2 finalists remaining. The tournament system also allows for spectating, for those of you who are not PvP-inclined. Aside from this, we've introduced the Prayer re-ordering plugin, new custom donation items (including the Soul wars pets), and many more QoL changes and bug fixes. We'll let you read all the fine details below:

  • Custom donation additions:
    • We've added a few new custom donation items to the list, these items can only be obtained via customs:
      • Coffin - $250
        • This wearable coffin goes into your cape slot, and is a unique fashion statement.
      • Soul wars pets (Lil' Creator & Lil' Destructor) - $150
        • The soul wars pet with metamorphosis options between both variants can now be purchased.
  • PvP Related Changes:
    • Combat formula adjustments (PvP only, PvM formulas unaffected):
      • To make our combat system more in-line with OSRS's, we've made the following changes:
        • Magic attacks in PvP were too accurate, so we've slightly reduced Magic accuracy.
        • Ranged attacks were unable to hit through tank gear, so we've slightly tweaked ranged defence to allow for a higher chance of penetrating armour.
    • Client clicking changes:
      • Deadclicks should no longer occur as frequently, as we've rewritten the way mouse clicks are handled, making them more accurate.
    • Bounty Hunter Risk Changes:
      • The bounty hunter system would previously rank the risk a player had by the following metrics:
        • Very High Risk:
          • If the risked wealth was more than 1.5m
            • This has been changed to be a 50m+ risk.
        • High Risk:
          • If the risked wealth was more than 1m.
            • This has been changed to be a 25m+ risk.
        • Medium Risk:
          • If the risked wealth was more than 250k.
            • This has been changed to be a 10m+ risk.
        • Low Risk:
          • If the risked wealth was more than 100k.
            • This has been changed to be a 5m+ risk.
        • Very Low Risk:
          • Anything less than 100k.
            • This has been changed to anything less than 5m.
      • These changes are only for the bounty hunter overlay, and will not have any effect on emblem upgrading.
    • Weapon changes:
      • Fixed a bug where PvP armour/weapon bonuses were being nerfed in the Edge PvP instance.
        • The 20% PvP Armour/weapon nerf will now properly be removed when re-entering the wilderness.
      • Updated the Dragon Claws special attack animation to be the same one OSRS uses.
      • Fixed a bug where players could sometimes stack the Morrigan’s javelin special attack effect.
    • There will now be a 1 tick delay before casting a spell if the player is auto casting.
      • This delay will be any time the player changes opponents, moves, or equips a different weapon.
    • Fixed a bug where any range weapon that didn't use ammo would have the max hit of their special attack effected by the special effect of the bolts they had equipped.
      • For example, one could increase the max hit of the dragon knives special attack by having dragon bolts (e) equipped.
    • Wilderness Food Changes:
      • All food/brews that are dropped in the wilderness will now disappear after 1 minute, and never go public to other players.
        • This is to make sure players can’t drop food for themselves for fights they expect to encounter, and so that mules/alts/friends can’t teleport to their friend being attacked and drop them food/brews.
    • Players can no longer autocast ancient magic spells unless they're using one of the following staves/wands:
      • Ancient staff
      • Master wand
      • Kodai wand
      • Ahrim’s staff
      • Nightmare staff
    • Many of these changes would not have been possible without the help of @night, your contributions are greatly appreciated.
  • Prayer Re-ordering:
    • Players can now use the Reorder Prayer plugin in runelite to enable the option to re-order their prayer menu.
      • Once this plugin is enabled, players will be able to right-click the prayer tab to Lock/Unlock/Reset their prayer menu.
        • When unlocked, players can drag the prayer icons around to swap their order.
          • The reset option will reset the prayer icons to their original order.
  • Tournament Event System:
    • There is an all-new Tournament event system that has been added to Alora!
    • The system works as follows:
      • Any administrator can begin to host a tournament at any given moment, and once initiated, they will be prompted to create a loadout that all players registered in the tournament will share.
        • At this time, the loadout items are limited to items in LMS (~110 items), excluding food.
        • Once the loadout has been selected, the tournament host can select a spell book, and will set a countdown timer for the tournament.
          • Players will have a few minutes to register in the tournament, either by typing ::jointournament or ::jointourny, or speaking to the Tournament NPC in edgeville.
            • After this, the player will be taken to the waiting area until the countdown is up, and will then be added to an arena to fight in a 1v1 battle against another random player.
              • If there is an odd number of contestants, one lucky player will be selected at random to automatically move forward to the next round.
              • This will continue until only 1 player is remaining, at which point they will be declared the winner.
              • If a contestant loses their fight, they will brought to a waiting area where they can spectate the fights of the remaining contestants.
        • There is also an option to simply spectate the tournament without participating, by speaking to the Tournament NPC in Edgeville and asking to be brought to the spectator area.
  • Raid booster change:
    • The Raid booster is now slightly more useful in the Theatre of Blood, providing a better chance particularly for the Pet, dust and clue scrolls. (5% boost)
      • The drop booster is still slightly more effective when it comes to rare drops, but both of them together still stack.
  • Runelite Changes:
    • Skilling plugins should now recognize trailblazer tool variants.
    • A “Fill” option has been added to the Inventory tags plugin that will fill the outline.
    • The boss icons on the Hiscore plugin have been refreshed and tidied up.
    • Players can now right-click the world map to import and export ground markers.
      • The imported ground markers must be copied to your clipboard.
      • When the export option is clicked, it will automatically copy the ground markers to your clipboard, which can then be sent to someone.
  • Quality of life:
    • News messages will now be classified under the Yell tab.
      • This means that filtering game messages will no longer filter news messages.
    • Logging out during the inferno will no longer cause a player to lose their tzkal-zuk task.
    • The ground item filter on the Vanilla client will now specify if filtered items are noted.
    • Curved bones should now be announced drops.
    • Fixed a bug with right-clicking "Add to canvas" in the skill tab for Runecrafting which caused the option to not work properly.
    • Mystic robe bottoms and tops will no longer be announced as rare drops.
    • The Magma and Tanzanite helm's will now show in the trading post search interface.
    • LMS halo changes:
      • All the LMS halo’s that are obtained from master clues (Brassica, Ancient, Seren, Armadyl, and Bandos) now have the proper examine text and weight (0.3 kg).
        • They are all now tradeable as well.
      • Trading Post sorting change:
        • When searching for items on the trading post, the first time you click the sort price button it will now sort by ascending price (lowest first) rather than ascending.
    • The "Streak info" board on the wall next to the Emblem trader in Edgeville will now open up the Wilderness scoreboard (top 30 pkers).
    • The Tournament Cup in Edgeville has been updated to display the winners of the last 4 tournaments, including the recent League.
  • Bug fixes:
    • Fixed a bug with the ring of endurance not showing a longer stamina potion timer through the runelite client.
    • The kodai wand will now show that a player has unlimited water runes when auto-casting.
    • Changing chat filter tab settings will now only alter your friends list status if you change your private tab options.
      • Previously, doing things such as setting the game tab to “filtered” or changing the public chat to off would show you as offline to your friends.
        • This no longer happens, players will only be shown as offline if they change their private tab settings.
    • Fixed a bug where Eternal donators would still receive an extra Dense essence block instead of Dark essence block when the Mining skillcape perk kicked in.
    • Fixed a bug where players could skip the first fight caves/inferno wave.
    • The xp counter will no longer draw over the minimap for larger font sizes.
    • The nightmare will no longer show any graphics that are not related to it's mechanics, as they were making it temporarily invisible.
    • Replaced Achievement points with Barrows points in the quest tab.
    • The pet penance queen will now be added to a player's collection log when they purchase it from the slayer exchange.
    • Players will no longer be able to sell or buy overloads on the trading post.
    • Alchemical Hydra's blue form special attack will now disappear when it changes forms to red.
    • Bank tabs should now work properly again.
      • Previously when a tab was clicked, nothing would happen, however it should now sort all the tagged items properly.
    • Fixed a bug where players could use secondary ingredients to complete potions sometimes.
    • Fixed a bug where sometimes a players Kodai wand would turn into an insignia (this would only happen once per account).
  • The following chathead animations have been fixed on 2010 mode:
    • Leke quo Keran
    • Konar quo Maten
    • Ikkle Hydra (pet)
  • Draw Distance Customization:
    • Players will now have the option to adjust their draw distance from the Interface Styles Runelite plugin.
      • Players will be able to set their draw distance to any values between 15 and 50.
        • The default value is 25 on LD, and 50 on HD.
        • Note that the larger the draw distance, the lower the FPS a player will generally have, so players may need to adjust their draw distance to a value that suits them.
  • Prayer Experience adjustments:
    • Altar changes:
      • Wyrm bones now give 50 base prayer experience (not including altar multiplier) rather than 30.
      • Drake bones now give 80 base prayer experience (not including altar multiplier) rather than 60.
      • Hydra bones now give 110 base prayer experience (not including altar multiplier) rather than 90.
      • Lava dragon bones now give 85 base prayer experience (not including altar multiplier) rather than 140.
    • Bone burying changes:
      • Lava dragon bones now give 85 base prayer experience rather than 140.
  • Weapon balancing in raids:
    • Due to some raid items having a 25% damage/accuracy boost in CoX/ToB, it made the Blade of Saeldor and Inquisitor mace no longer the best-in-slot weapons.
      • Rather than nerfing the old items, we've added the 25% boost to the Blade of Saeldor (and corrupted version) and Inquisitor mace.
  • Award changes:
    • The Daily Gamer award given by Hans was being incorrectly given to players that joined 100+ days ago, rather than players with 100+ days of playtime as intended.
      • We have removed it from any account that does not meet the requirements, and made sure Hans only gives it to players who qualify for the award.
  • Slayer requirement fixes:
    • Spiritual mages now require 83 Slayer to fight and/or to be assigned as a task.
    • Spiritual warriors now require 68 Slayer to fight and/or to be assigned as a task.



We hope you enjoy this update! As always, please let us know if you run into any bugs :)

Plenty of goodies for everyone to try out. I like the prayer icon switching update. I tend to be at Zulrah a lot... much more than I'd like but... Having the main prayers I use being in the first few spots will be easier than going into the middle of the book. It'll even be useful at other bosses as well. Keep up the good work, staff!

Since autocasting is having a rework, will the autocast interfaces for the staff of the dead and its varients also get a fix?

The staves of light / balance / death can no longer autocast ancient magicks.  Fine.  It matches OSRS.

But what about autocasting flames of zamorak / claws of guthix / saradomin strike?  


But what about zuriel's staff?  It should 100% be able to autocast ancient magicks.


What's the point of having the streak scoreboard next to the emblem trader pull up the top 30 all time?

The wilderness scoreboard behind the general store already does that.

You'd think the streak scoreboard would provide information pertaining to streaks, right? 

Like highest kill streaks of each game mode or highest kill streaks of players online.


Best part of update?

Curved bones will now be announced drops

Great update! Thanks @Omicron! The Blade of Saeldor might be a bit more useful now. :)
