Hello everyone,

 

We are back with another round of updates! This week, we've heard your feedback on Tombs of Amascut and made many changes to make the experience even smoother -- we've also added in the ToA plugin, and the Scoreboard in the lobby to keep track of how you compare to others' statistics. We've also noted suggestions for Nex, and we've rebalanced the loot, combat mechanics and respawn time (including Nightmare's respawn time) to make it less of a grind in the Ancient Prison. Aside from that, Alora now has the 3D Weather on the Plugin Hub, which will allow you to have rainfall and snowfall, among other weather settings! The game's sound have been updated as well, and many NPCs and weapons will now have their proper sounds.

 

  • Tombs of Amascut changes:
    • Bonus loot rate:
      • Tombs of Amascut bonus loot rate has been added (capped at 1.2x similar to other raids).
    • Tombs of Amsacut scoreboard:
      • Players can now use the scoreboard in the Tombs of Amascut lobby to view the tracked stats for each tier of the raid.
        • The board displays player/global statistics for 1-8 man teams in the entry/normal/expert categories, and shows the global/player deaths, attempts, completions, and best overall/challenge times.
          • The board will only show stats (except player completions) for raids completed after this update, since we were not previously tracking this data.
    • Tombs of Amascut Plugin:
      • Players can now access the Tombs of Amascut plugin through the Runelite client.
        • This plugin provides features to help players solve the Het, Scabaras, and Apmeken challenge rooms during the raid.
          • It also changes the overlay timer to show how much time the team has left if they’re on a timed invocation, and adds options to screenshot their invocations selected.
    • BaBa Sounds:
      • Sounds have been added in the BaBa boss fight.
    • Loot changes:
      • The following donator ranks will now have a higher chance of receiving unique loot from the chest:
        • Eternal - 10% boost
        • Immortal - 8% boost
        • Master - 6.5%
        • Uber - 5% boost
        • Legendary - 3% boost
        • Extreme - 2% boost
    • Bug fixes:
      • During the Warden's fight, BaBa's Phantom's boulder attack has been slowed down, except for enraged state:
        • Normal mode: delay was previously 6 ticks, but is now 8 ticks.
        • Insanity mode: delay was previously 4 ticks, but is now 6 ticks.
        • Warden enraged state: Will now always be 4 ticks (was not attacking faster in this state before)
      • TOA personal bests will now show up in the killcount boss log.
      • Player's will now be notified when the boosters enhance their loot at TOA.
      • You will no longer be able to deposit another pickaxe in the Path of Het challenge room if there is already a pickaxe stored (previously deleted your old pickaxe).
      • Tumeken's shadow can now properly be charged without risk of losing runes.
        • Previously, it would sometimes charge your staff with the incorrect number of charges, or simply delete soul runes.
      • The raid timer now ends when the Warden reaches 0 health, rather than when the death animation ends.
      • BaBa's rolling boulders no longer crush rubble if he is done with his throwing phase. This was sometimes causing old rolling boulders to crush new rubble that had just dropped from the ceiling, and leaving players defenseless.
      • The "Quiet Prayers" invocation now works as intended with Zebak, no longer allowing you to completely block his damage when this invocation is enabled. Instead, you'll be hit for a very small amount (10% of the full damage, so a 30 hit would deal 3 damage on you).
      • ToA supplies are now tradeable.
      • Players will now have 100% accuracy against the warden core and energy siphons.
      • Fixed a bug where the warden phantoms would remain after dying in phase 3 and restarting the fight.
      • The holy ghrazi rapier is no longer tradeable.
      • Phase 1 wardens will no longer deal delayed damage if the core is out.
      • Akkha and wardens will no longer overheal when entering their final phases.
      • It is no longer possible to get the "infinite" loot from ToA chest, usually for Blood essence or Magic seeds. These rewards were not actually infinite, but giving 0 of the item and showing an infinity symbol.
        • You will now receive at least one of any item shown in the reward interface.
      • Players now have a small window of immunity from unstable orbs after being hit by one.
      • Fixed a bug where players would get duplicate keris gems from TOA.
      • The phase 3 Warden will now properly remember the last tiles lifted when the insanity invocation is enabled.
      • Players will now get more supplies from the supply reducing invocations at TOA.
      • Akkha's unstable orbs now have a maximum hit of 25 rather than 27.
      • Player’s will now have 1 extra tick to react to ba-ba’s shockwave attack if the “shaking things up” invocation is enabled.
      • Phantom's no longer deal damage after the raid is completed.
      • Players can no longer get duplicate pet morph kits from TOA.
  • Nex rebalancing:
    • Nex’s attack/defence bonuses have been changed to match OSRS. Overall, these changes should make Nex way easier to hit with Melee and Magic, but will also make Nex’s melee/ranged attacks more accurate, and Magic attacks less accurate.
      • Nerfs:
        • Stab defence: 560 -> 40
        • Slash defence: 580 -> 140
        • Crush defence: 540 -> 60
        • Magic defence: 600 -> 300
        • Magic accuracy: 150 -> 100
      • Boosts:
        • Ranged defence: 175 -> 190
        • Attack level: 170 -> 315
        • Strength level: 170 -> 200
        • Defence level: 170 -> 260
        • Magic level: 170 -> 230
        • Ranged level: 170 -> 350
    • Nex loot changes:
      • Nex loot will now be much easier to obtain, as she will have the ability to drop more than one unique drop.
        • The base rate is 1/43, divided amongst the number of players. For example, with a two-player team, each player will have a 1/86 chance to obtain loot, and both can get a single unique drop each.
          • Players can also further enhance their individual chance via:
            • Being MVP, which provides a 10% boost.
            • Having a drop booster, which provides a 25% boost.
            • Killing Nex while a Nex loot rate bonus is turned on.
      • The Nexling pet can now be obtained by multiple players in one kill.
      • The Nexling pet will now be 10% easier for the MVP (previously, MVP’s bonus was only applied to other uniques).
    • Nex respawn time changes:
      • Nex will now respawn after 30 seconds rather than 72 seconds.
  • Nightmare respawn time changes:
    • Nightmare will now respawn after 30 seconds rather than 72 seconds.
  • Bank Noting Changes:
    • Players can now speak to a banker to toggle between unnoting as many items as they can carry, or being able to specify the amount when using a bank-note on a banker or bank booth.
      • The default option for this will be to withdraw as many items as possible.
    • Players who specify the amount of items to withdraw will now see an option to withdraw the previously specified amount.
  • Client changes:
    • 3D Weather Plugin:
      • This plugin has been added to the Plugin Hub.
      • A plugin that gives immersive, 3D weather with dynamic weather cycles and ambience (sounds).
        • Weather settings:
          • Rain
          • Snow
          • Fog
          • Ashfall
          • Stars
      • Note that this plugin looks best when the colour of the skybox is changed through the default Skybox plugin. It looks even better with 117HD enabled!
    • PvP Performance Tracker Plugin:
      • This plugin has been added to Alora's client.
      • Tracks PvP performance by keeping track of various stats. Only useful for 1v1 PvP fights that involve overhead prayers and/or gear switching, Last Man Standing being the perfect example.
        • May be buggy in multi-fights, and not recommended for use there.
    • Clan Events Plugin:
      • This plugin has been added to the Plugin Hub.
      • A plugin helpful for clan events. It creates an overlay that displays the event password and time (UTC) to your screen. This plugin can utilize Google Sheets API to retrieve data from Google Spreadsheets.
  • Sounds:
    • Many new sounds have been added, including:
      • Combat sounds:
        • Generics:
          • Pickaxe attack
          • Wand attack
          • Claws attack
          • Sword attack
          • Scimitar attack
          • Halberd attack
          • Godsword attack

        • Chinchompa attack
      • Skilling sounds:
        • Cutting logs (fletching)
        • Fishing (put out line)
        • Smelting
        • Runecraft (at altar)
        • Spade digging
      • Other:
        • Web slashing
        • Coin sound when an item is sold on Trading Post
        • Interface button clicking sound

    • Chambers of Xeric bosses will no longer be invisible or walk off into the distance (Tekton & Vespula).
    • Masori assembler max cape will now have the proper right-click options when worn.
    • Toggling the Pharaoh's Sceptre floating animation will now be remembered when you log out.
    • Fixed a bug where skotizo was only dropping totem pieces (and way too many of them).
    • Fixed a bug where lighting artifacts would remain after an object was removed on 117HD.
    • Fixed a bug where the inventory setups plugin would not add runes to the divine rune pouch.
    • Fixed a bug where players could not get the full dark totem drop from skotizo.
    • Putting together a dark totem will now add the dark totem to a Player’s Collection log.
    • Fixed Base XP showing up as 1.0 sometimes in Quest Tab.
    • Casting Teleblock with a Toxic Staff of the Dead in PvP will no longer be able to inflict venom onto other players.
    • Lootbeams would sometimes not show up properly in certain areas (eg. Lumbridge bridge) and have been fixed.

We'll continue to fix up any lingering bugs in ToA while we work on new content, but we hope that the experience is improved significantly after this update. Enjoy!

 

Best,

Omicron & Chad
