Happy Five Year Anniversary!
 

When we first embarked on this journey 5 years ago, we had no idea of the bonds we’d form, the moments we’d share and the lifelong friends that would come from it. Alora started off as an idea, as a game for people to enjoy, but it has become so much more than that. For many of us, it’s become a place where we’ve formed countless memories, and a community that we’ve become a part of, and that has become part of our identities. Whether you’ve just recently joined, or if you’ve been here since 2016, one thing remains true: Alora is a place you can call home, and a place you can come back to no matter what is going on in your life.
 
I'm extremely proud of our community, and I adamantly believe that there has never been a better community in the RSPS scene. I'd like to thank everyone for being here with us for these past five years, your support keeps us going. Today is a day of celebration, so we hope you enjoy the events that our lovely staff team has lined up for you!
 
We've also applied some miscellaneous bug fixes, QoL, and content additions today:

  • Party Pete:
    • Party Pete has been added at home to hand out Birthday balloons for this year's anniversary.
  • Vote Book Bonus Expansion:
    • Players now have the option to select 2 new bonuses from opening vote books.
    • Bonus Mahogany Homes Points:
      • Players can select this option to increase their Mahogany Homes points by 15% for 45 minutes.
        • The way this works is that it will provide players a 15% chance to get an extra point for every point they get from completing a contract.
          • For example, on an easy contract, players get 3 points by default, so they’d have a 45% chance to get 1 extra point, while on an elite contract, they get 6 points, so they’d have a 90% chance to get 1 extra point.
            • Bonus points from being a donator doing influence the chance to get an extra point.
    • Bonus Molch Pearls:
      • Players can select this option to increase their likelihood of getting a Molch pearl after each catch by 15% for 45 minutes.
    • These new bonuses will also be visible in the bonuses interface, which can be accessed through the server statistics tab in the quest tab.
  • Bracelet of Clay:
    • Players can now enchant Sapphire Bracelets into a Bracelet of clay.
      • This Bracelet will allow players to mine soft clay from clay rocks, rather than normal clay.
        • The bracelet has 28 charges when enchanted, and will shatter after using the last charge.
        • Charges will not be used if the player is mining clay in Traehaern mine.
  • Traehaern Mine Changes:
    • Players who Mine ores in the Traehaern Mine in Prifddinas will now have a 1/103 chance to obtain a crystal shard for each ore mined.
    • Players who mine clay in this mine will also mine soft clay rather than the standard clay.
  • Sulliescep Woodcutting:
    • Players can now cut Sulliusceps on Fossil island.
      • These Fungi require a Woodcutting level of at least 65 to chop down, and prove 127 base Woodcutting experience for each yield.
        • These are different from standard woodcutting trees, since most of the time, players will receive an “empty yield”, meaning they won’t get a log/item.
          • The items that can be obtained and their rates are as follows:
            • Sulliuscep cap: 1/50 chance per yield
            • Mushroom: 1/10 chance per yield
            • Mort myre fungus: 1/30 chance per yield
    • Sulliusceps do not follow the same spawn mechanics as OSRS (where they spawn in a specific order, only one at a time).
      • Instead, they spawn in the same location all the time, and will respawn after being chopped down, similar to normal trees.
    • The Runelite Woodcutting plugin will also show respawn timers for these trees.
  • New Shop Additions:
    • Logava Gricoller’s Cooking Supplies:
      • This is a new ironman-friendly cooking supplies shop in Hosidius that stocks the following items:
        • 5 Pie dishes
        • 5 Cake tins
        • 2 Bowls
        • 3 Tinderboxe
        • 3 Jugs
        • 4 Empty jug packs
        • 12 Pots
        • 3 Empty cups
        • 3 Knives
        • 30 Balls of wool
        • 5 potatoes
        • 2 Cooking apples
        • 2 Bread
        • 1 Chocolate bar
        • 3 Cheese
        • 8 Pots of flour
    • Frenita’s Cookery Shop:
      • This is a new ironman-friendly cooking shop in Yanille that stocks the following items:
        • 5 Pie dishes
        • 2 Cooking apples
        • 2 Cake tins
        • 5 Potatoes
        • 4 Tinderboxes
        • 1 Jug
        • 3 Empty jug packs
        • 8 Pots
        • 2 Chocolate bars
        • 8 Pots of flour
        • 20 Empty cups.
  • Windmill Flour Making:
    • Players can now make flour at all the various windmills around the game.
      • To do so, just bring grain to the top floor of the windmill, add it to the hopper, pull the lever nearby, and then go to the bottom floor of the windmill, and collect the flour.
        • Players will need to have an empty pot in their inventory to collect the flour.
  • Pie Making:
    • Players can now make all the types of pies available.
      • The process of pie-making begins by creating a Pie shell.
        • To create a pie shell, a player will need to use pastry dough on a pie dish.
          • To do this, simply use a jug of water, bucket of water, or bowl of water on a pot of flour, and it will create pastry dough.
        • Pie dishes can be found at any of the listed spawns on the OSRS wiki, or from Logava Gricoller’s Cooking Supplies shop.
      • Once the player has a pie dish, they will need to add the ingredients into the pie dish in a specific order, and then they can cook the pie.
  • Quality of Life:
    • Eternal donators will now receive 50% off the purchase cost of items from the reclaimables shop.
    • Players can now inspect the Dragonfire shield/Dragonfire ward/Ancient wyvern shields to see how many charges they have.
    • Players can now deposit up to 55 ores in the blast furnace.
      • Similar to in OSRS, this must be done by first depositing 27 ores, then another 28 in the next inventory.
    • Fixed a bug where the curved bone trade-in dialogue would sometimes show the wrong amount of experience that will be awarded to the player.
    • Expanded the item identification plugin to identify all different types of seeds/items.
      • Players can select the types of seeds/items they want to identify in the configuration settings.
    • Adjusted the boosts display interface to show the proper experience rate boosts for the Well of Goodwill, server bonus xp, vote bonus xp, and god blessing bonus xp.
      • These rates vary depending on the game mode (Classic/Realism/League/EIM/GIM players may have adjusted rates), so the exact boost will now be shown based on your game mode.
    • Added the Weiss Herb Patch as a Farmer's blessing exclusive herb patch.
    • Lizardman shaman no longer deal any melee/range damage when using their basic melee/range attack if the player is praying correctly.
    • Players will now see up to 9 available food options to cook when they click on a range/oven, rather than just 1 (generally the first raw food item at the top of their inventory).
    • Added various item spawns around the game.
      • We’ve added all of the pie dish spawns that OSRS has.
      • We’ve added cooking apples, pots, bowls, and grape spawns to the Cooking guild.
    • The Botanical pie will now provide a +4 Herblore boost when consumed.
    • The Mushroom pie will now provide a +4 Crafting boost when consumed.
    • The Celestial ring will now give dark essence blocks to eternal donators rather than Dense essence blocks.
    • Added a warning on startup for players who launch the client using a 32-bit java version on a 64-bit operating system.
      • Doing this will likely result in client crashes, so players will be warned each time they load the client.
    • Players now have a chance to obtain teak/redwood/mahogany/dragonfruit tree seeds from bird nests.
    • The fossil island bank chest will now appear built/usable.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Fixed a bug that was causing clients to crash when using the Mahogany Homes plugin.
    • Fixed a bug where there was an extra empty build option on the Mahogany homes build interface.
    • Shifted the Runelite overlay bottom left/bottom middle snap corners up a bit so that they were not under the chatbox when the gpu/117 HD plugins were enabled.
    • Fixed a bug where clicking "Nevermind." when selecting a prayer to unlock would consume the prayer scroll.
    • Adjusted the public chat Censor to avoid censoring the words "can I get" and other similar combinations that were being censored.
      • If you find any other word patterns that are being picked up the censor when they shouldn’t be, let us know, and we’ll adjust it.
    • Fixed a bug where clicking on the frog prince outfit in the Fancy Dress Box would open the GIM bank (if the player was a GIM).
    • Fixed a bug where players could not go back down the stairs in the Cooking guild.
    • Fixed a typo with the harmony island allotment patch.
    • Rounded the xp rate in the quest tab to 1 decimal place.
    • Increased the interface refresh rate so that players who are getting 200+ FPS uncapped will no longer see flickering.
    • Fixed a bug where trying to use the alchemy or superheat spells would open the music tab.
    • Fixed a bug where the ladder in the donator zone was a bank booth on 2010 mode.
    • Fixed a bug where players could keep autocasting a spell from a different spellbook in certain circumstances.
    • Fixed a bug where one of the bank booths in west Falador would not work properly.

Party Pete scammed me for the balloons and gave me a 4th birthday hat instead that I couldn't equip, it then disappeared when I deposited into my bank and now I can't remove the placeholder.
