#333915 [27/1/2020] Major Client Upgrades, Inferno Training, Twisted Slayer helmet, N...

Posted by Omicron on Yesterday, 09:07 AM

Only thing I'm against was restricting the training inferno feature to Uber+ as the benefits for both donator ranks are sufficient as is. I'd rather this feature be open to regular users also, so they can use it as intended, for training. 

 

Other than that this was a brilliant update,  :nutspam:.

 

People have called the perks for ranks like Master and Immortal "underwhelming", so Dan and I try to think of perks that aren't overpowered, but unique and beneficial, which is how inferno training came to be. I understand everyone could probably benefit from it, however it felt like something useful and not pay-to-win or overpowered to give the higher ranks as a perk. The perk itself was conceived as a way to provide better perks to these ranks, since all it really saves is time, and even upon completion nothing is awarded. 




#333817 [27/1/2020] Major Client Upgrades, Inferno Training, Twisted Slayer helmet, N...

Posted by Omicron on Yesterday, 12:37 AM

Hello everyone,

 

We've been working hard to bring you an update that satisfies many of the suggestions that we've seen within the community, especially when it comes to client updates which have not had much attention the past few months. This update brings exactly that and so much more, with numerous QoL updates and new content such as the ability for Inferno training, the Twisted bow slayer helmet upgrade from CoX, and new $50 and $100 bonds for the easier transfer of donator ranks. Aside from this, we've also managed to squeeze in numerous bug fixes that we're sure you'll appreciate!

 

Note: You may have already noticed some of the updates below in-game, as we updated last week with some of the important fixes (particularly with Achievements).

 

  • Achievement Perk Viewer:
    • Players can now right-click any diary in their quest tab and click the “View perks” button to view all the perks of each diary, and see which ones are currently active, and which aren’t.
    • Note: We’re aware that some diaries don’t have any perks associated with them at the moment(except for the item perks, and the experience lamp), and would like to expand the perks that are obtained from diary completion.
      • That being said, we encourage players to submit reasonable perk suggestions for diaries that currently don’t have any active.
  • Achievement diary additions:
    • Ardougne Medium Diary: 
      • Upgrade an Iban staff to an Iban staff (u) through Aubury.
    • Kourend Medium Diary:
      • Catch 25 fish through Aerial fishing.
    • Western Provinces Medium Diary:
      • Catch 25 kebbits with a falcon.
  • Achievement completion in order:
    • Achievement diaries now require that you do all the previous ones in that region before receiving rewards.
      • For example, if you complete the Elite Falador tasks, you won't receive your Falador shield 4 until you've completed the Easy, Medium and Hard diaries as well (to ensure that the best reward is locked behind the entire diary).
        • Experience lamps are in the same reward system, so they will be awarded when the prior diary sections are completed as well.
        • With this change, the most optimal way to complete your diaries is in order from Easy -> Hard.
  • Chambers of Xeric reward additions:
    • Twisted horns can now be obtained from the Chambers of Xeric!
      • These horns can be attached to a Slayer helmet to turn it into a Twisted slayer helmet (as well as the imbued version).
      • The horns are also tradable and can be bought and sold between players.
      • This reward is rolled for separately from other rare items, and will not affect your chance of obtaining other loot such as the Twisted bow.
        • The rate of obtaining the horns is similar to the Prayer scroll drop rate, though slightly more difficult.
      • The horns have been added to the Collection log for CoX.
  • Bug fixes:
    • Achievements:
      • Experience lamps are no longer affected by boosts.
      • A purple chatbox message will be sent with the exact reward you receive from the Achievement manager.
      • You can now view all of the items in the Achievement store (total of 48).
        • Previously, it would max out at 39 items shown.
      • You can now "value" all items in the Achievement store.
        • Previously, you could only check the price of the first 10 items.
      • The typo of "Saladomin" in the Falador elite diary task has been fixed.
      • Fixed a bug with the smoke devil task not working properly.
      • Clarified where players should be picking snape grass for the Fremennik easy diary task.
      • Added a clarification on the crystal seed achievement.
      • Fixed a bug where checking the health of a redwood tree would increase the wrong achievement.
      • Fixed a bug with the Bedabin camp dragon dart task.
      • The "Complete 10 Elite clue scrolls" achievement was only requiring 1 clue to be completed, and now requires 10 as intended.
      • Fixed a bug where killing dawn would count towards the achievement to kill Grotesque Guardians.
      • Fremennik boots 3 + 4 removed from Loyalty point shop.
      • Bandits at Bedabin camp should no longer break, and the ones outside of the bar will also count towards the Bandit task in the Desert diary.
      • Players who have the Ava’s accumulator or assembler max cape will now have the Accumulator achievement auto-completed.
    • Replaced the duplicate red berries in the Herblore supplies shop with Jangerberries.
    • Name change ticket fix:
      • Any pending donations in your collection box will now transfer over to your new username.
        • Previously, any pending donations would be attached to the old username.
    • The slayer's staff(e) can now auto-cast magic dart.
    • Fixed a bug where Wilderness swords would only slash webs with 100% accuracy if they were in your inventory.
      • They will now always slash webs as long as they are equipped.
    • Giant mole will no longer do any damage if players are protecting from melee.
    • Opening the Elven Crystal Chest no longer grants 500 experience in crafting/smithing.
    • Fixed a bug where purchasing the quest cape would give players 2 quest cape hoods instead of the quest cape (t).
    • Fixed a bug with the mithril dragon staircase.
    • Fixed a bug with the Occult (or) not having the proper item value.
    • The ::laps command now properly counts Gnome and Barbarian agility course laps.
    • The Antifire/Super-antifire client timers will now be removed upon death.
    • Rune knife (p++) placeholder will no longer appear as a Dagon'hai hat.
    • The Dragon hunter lance boost now applies at Wyrms and Drakes.
    • Previously, if you noted a Blue wizard hat, you could not unnote it. This is now fixed.
    • Fixed a Wilderness godwars dungeon safespot.
    • Fixed a bug where the Elite Void set in the armour case wouldn't store the void gloves.
    • Players can no longer create a rune crossbow with Sinew.
      • The proper method of doing so is with a crossbow string, which can be made by spinning the sinew.
    • Removed monkfish spot from fishing guild.
    • Returned the anglerfish spot back to the wilderness resource area.
    • Fixed the “Trade” right click option on Paul.
    • Fixed a bug where having Wesley crush Lava scales would only provide 1 Lava scale shard per scale crushed.
    • Fixed a bug with the thieving stalls at home doing weird things when thieved from.
    • Players can now store the adamant kite shield (t) and (g) with the adamant armor sets in their POH Treasure Chest.
    • Fixed a bug where players would get Hellhounds in the Karuulm dungeon before they had 44 slayer for the Boots of Stone.
    • Players will no longer receive Metamorphic dust in the Theatre of Blood if they already have obtained it.
  • Quality of life:
    • Added the teleport options to the equipment interface for the following items:
      • Rada’s blessing 1
      • Rada’s blessing 3
      • Rada’s blessing 4
    • Increased the max damage players can do to Zalcano by 5.
    • Added the Arclight to Skotizo’s drop table.
      • There is an ~1/30 chance of receiving it from Skotizo, whether in the Catacombs or the wilderness.
    • Added a new command for suggestions. 
      • ::suggestion/::suggestions can be used in-game to be redirected to the suggestions section of the forums.
    • The bank behind the castle in Etceteria now functions properly.
    • Enchanting jewelry is now a repeating process, so jewelry of the same type(ex: Onyx bracelets) will repeatedly be enchanted unless the action is disrupted.
    • Added a right-click “Crush” option to Wesley so players can crush their secondaries and skip the dialogue.
    • Divine potions will now warn the users when they wear off.
    • A command to go to the Achievement guide, made by @Vape Tricks has been added.
      • Players can type ::achievementguide or ::achievements guide in-game to be redirected to the achievement diary guide.
  • Miscellaneous:
    • The remaining Christmas features have been removed.(Login screen music, Varrock Christmas tree, Partyhat pets, etc)
    • Discord bot fix:
      • The #game_news channel was previously not showing drop announcements for players who had spaces in their usernames. This has been fixed.
  • Slayer changes:
    • Tztok-Jad tasks will now be assigned as single-kill extreme tasks.
      • Dying/leaving the fight caves during the task will cause you to fail the task.
        • Failing the q task will not cause you to lose your streak.
    • Players will now be assigned 60-95 aberrant spectres, as opposed to 6-45 previously.
  • Leprechaun tool exchange:
    • The tool leprechaun now supports withdraw “5”, “all”, and “x” optional amounts for buckets/compost/supercompost.
    • The tool leprechaun now supports store “5”, “all”, and “x” optional amounts for buckets/compost/supercompost.
  • Client changes:
    • Hide pet client option.
      • Players can now go into their client settings, and choose to hide the options from their pets.
        • If they toggle this option, they won’t be able to left-click on their pet to interact with them, and will only be able to examine them.
      • Additionally, even though you can't click on other players' pets, you can now at least examine them and see what their name is.
    • Virtual levels toggle:
      • Players can now go into their client settings and choose to toggle virtual levels.
        • Virtual levels allow you to visualize your progress after level 99, which shows the “virtual” level that you would be in a given skill if the max level was 126.
          • This is just cosmetic, and has no effect in-game or on total level.
    • Condense items toggle:
      • This feature will condense duplicate items in item piles when right clicking, so instead of seeing 2 rows for 2 fire capes on the ground, what you’d see instead is “Fire Cape (2)”, and one examine option for both items.
    • Show Item amounts toggle:
      • This feature will allow you to see the amount of stackable items when right clicking on item piles. 
        • For example, if there was a coin pile with 300k coins, when you right click it, you would see “Coins (300,000)”.
    • Item overlay changes:
      • Players can now hold shift to add and remove items from their item overlay list.
    • Remembering resizable client size:
      • The latest position/resize of the client will be remembered so that players no longer have to reset it when opening the client.
    • OpenGL updates:
      • Mac fix:
        • We've changed the way OpenGL loads on your device, making it less prone to failing on Mac OS.
      • Linux support:
        • We've also added a fix OpenGL on Linux, thought this hasn't been tested.
    • Render self command:
      • Players can now type ::renderself to choose whether or not they want their player model to be visible.
        • You’ll still be visible to other players, however you won’t be able to see yourself.
  • Inferno training perk:
    • Uber+ donators will now have the opportunity to practice the inferno starting at wave 67.
    • Master donators will now have the opportunity to practice the inferno starting at wave 68.
      • By speaking to Tzhaar-Ket-keh outside of the inferno (once paying the fire cape fee), players may ask him to practice the inferno.
        • Players can choose to start either at the Triple Jad phase, or the last wave right away.
          • Completing the inferno in this training mode will not award any Tokkul, infernal capes, inferno kill counts, inferno kill times, and will not complete the inferno achievement. 
            • This is also a safe death for HCIM who wish to practice the Inferno.
  • Group Ironman Integrity changes:
    • Group Ironmen can now only kick someone from their team once every 30 days, rather than the previous 7-day cool down. 
      • This is to deter item transferring between non-group members. We’ve seen many players abuse the integrity of the game mode by buying/selling items by switching groups temporarily, and therefore have added a limit and longer cool down period for switching groups, which will hopefully deter most players from doing this. 
    • Group Ironmen now have a hard limit of joining 5 groups over the lifetime of their accounts — if they have changed groups 5 times then they are no longer considered a Group ironman and must play solo. (Or remain in their final group, if they do not get kicked out).
      • If you are currently in a group, that will be counted as 1/5 and you have 4 joins left.
  • Farming guild changes:
    • There were some issues in the past with Farming guild contracts not working properly, which created issues, especially with easy tasks that players could not cancel.
    • We’ve adjusted the level requirements for all farming guild contracts to follow the level requirements listed in the wiki link below:
    • Players now require the following levels to complete each contract tier:
      • Easy contracts: 45+ Farming
      • Medium contracts: 65+ Farming
      • Hard contracts: 85+ Farming
    • Players should no longer get tasks that require them to enter sections of the Farming guild that they do not have the requirements for.
      • For example, in the past, players would get assigned a herb task on an easy contract, without the necessary level to enter the section of the farming guild that contained herb patches, making the contract impossible to complete.
    • A bug that caused players to not be able to complete a contract if they ran out of inventory space on their last yield has also been fixed.
  • Theatre of Blood QoL:
    • Passage fix:
      • The passages between ToB rooms were quite buggy, and would stop your character's movement and say "I can't reach that!" if you clicked on the door from the wrong angle.
    • Maiden fix:
      • Running into the Maiden room will now give a few seconds before the Maiden attacks you, giving you time to run up and not get hit until you can fight back.
        • This only counts for the first hit, and players entering later on will still receive damage no matter where they are in the room.
  • Call pet option:
    • Players can now use the “call follower” option in the equipment interface to summon their pets if they’re more than 5 steps away.
  • Menagerie changes:
    • The following changes have been made to the pet house:
      • Oak pet house now stores 3 pets.
      • Teak pet house now stores 5 pets.
      • Mahogany pet house now stores 7 pets.
      • Consecrated pet house now stores 9 pets.
      • Desecrated pet house now stores 12 pets.
      • Nature pet house now stores 52 pets.
    • Due to the changes to the pet houses, the only the first 12 pets you have in your pet house will spawn and move around.
    • The pet list now includes the pets in your menagerie.
    • Players can now use their pets directly on the pet house to deposit them.
    • Guests can now view the pet list of the owner’s house.
  • Iban’s staff (u):
    • Players can now speak to Aubury to upgrade their Iban’s staff to an Iban’s staff (u) for 3 million coins.
      • Players will need an Iban’s staff in their inventory to ask Augury about it, and playing him 3m coins will upgrade the staff you have to an Iban’s Staff (u), and set your charges to 2,500 casts.
        • No runes will be required to cast the spell if you have charges.
        • When the charges run out, the staff will degrade to a regular Iban’s staff.
        • The Iban’s staff (u) will autocrats Iban’s blast.
    • Note: The charges are account dependent, and NOT staff dependent, so for example, upgrading a second Iban’s staff with Aubury with 1,000 charges left will mean you gain 1,500 charges instead of the full 2,500.
  • Clue scroll changes:
    • 3 new coordinate clues have been added in the Kourend area.
    • 1 new cryptic clue has been added in the Kourend area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Store:
    • Inverted Santa hat:
      • A brand new, never before seen Santa hat with the red and white colours inverted has been added to the store!
        • This Santa hat costs 1,500 tokens and is tradable.
        • It can also be purchased by Ironman/Realism players.
    • New Bonds ($50 / $100):
      • To make trading donations less tedious, the following bond denominations are now available for purchase:
        • $50 bonds:
          • These cost 500 tokens, and add $50 to total spent (as well as removing $50 from the purchaser's rank).
        • $100 bonds:
          • These cost 1,000 tokens, and add $100 to total spent (as well as removing $100 from the purchaser's rank).
      • Note:
        • The cost to convert these bonds scales with the price, so a $10 bond is 5m to convert, while the other two are 25m and 50m, respectively.
        • Bonds have also been changed from (100 tokens) -> ($10) in the name.
    • Miscellaneous:
      • Gold leafs can now be purchased by Ironmen.

#333778 Master Clues and The Mimic (repost)

Posted by Omicron on 27 January 2020 - 05:51 PM

If enough people want this, this could be added in a future update down the line, however any items that belong to master clue rewards that are currently rewarded from elite clue scrolls would be shifted over to master clues as well. The difficulty of the steps would be the same as OSRS (although not all the potential steps would be added from OSRS since that would take far too long) , and to ensure players can get new steps if they can't complete one, we'd limit players to only receiving 1 master clue per account, so that once the clue was dropped, and had fully de-spawned, they would be able to get a new step.

#333050 Compressed's Suggestions

Posted by Omicron on 22 January 2020 - 08:40 PM

The following suggestions have been accepted, and will likely be implemented in a future (probably not the next) update:

 

-Reduce KQ attack speed

-Dusk and dawn counting towards 1 kill each on a gargoyle task.

-Kraken expansion

 

As for the twisted slayer helmet, a suggested for it has already been accepted, and for the slayer cape perk, that is already in-game.


Your suggestion has been accepted.

 

Edit: In regards to reducing KQ attack speed, it's the same as it is in OSRS, so I don't see a valid reason to make it attack slower.

#332733 Arclight Suggestion

Posted by Omicron on 20 January 2020 - 08:05 PM

This is a reasonable suggestion, seeing as we've added a lot of new items to the Daily shop. I've added the arc light to the Skotizo drop table at ~1/30 chance as an alternative.


Your suggestion has been accepted.




#332725 Revising declined suggestions

Posted by Omicron on 20 January 2020 - 07:21 PM

This is not a suggestion, I would categorize it as feedback, so I'll be moving this to the feedback section. That being said, I'm not opposed to players modifying and remaking previously declined suggestions, and we can give them a second look (often suggestions that lack detail or aren't clear get declined simply because they're not concise enough), but it would take too much time/resources away from current active suggestions and bugs to go back on already declined suggestions and sort through them.




#332557 Past level 99

This is an interesting suggestion, I'll see what I can do for the virtual level implementation. :)

#332556 Same clue type different step

Posted by Omicron on 19 January 2020 - 12:14 PM

Hey, I've mentioned this before, but the system is written in a way that doesn't allow for this, and that's due to the fact that we allow players to have multiples of the same clue. It would involve re-writing a lot of the existing system, or limiting players to 1 clue of each type per account.

#332491 So um....

Posted by Omicron on 18 January 2020 - 09:39 PM

I’d tell you I’m going to miss you, but it’s pretty much impossible with how tall you are... Jokes aside, you will definitely be missed and it won’t be quite the same not having you around, but I wish you the absolute best IRL and I know you’ll kill it with your new promotion.

You’ve had such a positive impact on the team and the game itself during your team here, and I can’t thank you enough for that. More than that, you’ve been an incredible friend not only to myself but to many others, your impartiality in dealing with people in this community definitely stands out and draws people to you. I’m hoping we’ll still see your sole around here (pun intended ;) ) and there on Discord at the very least!

Love ya Alex <3

@Omicron


How many post are going to be made over the years about "IBAN"S STAFF (U)" bofore it gets added to the game??? it's crazy this gets looked over? People use this staff in runescape ALL the time.. if this rsps is trying to be as close to osrs as it can this needs to be added?? It's a staff that recommended for LOTS of things if you don't have a trident yet... Barrows runs, Kraken, Zulrah... ect..

 

 

I assure you that it's on the list of future content to add, a list that is quite long I should mention. Repeated suggestions and tagging me in posts that involve the same things will not cause them to be implemented faster. What I will say is that Dan and I will eventually get to adding it, but it's not at the top of the priority list.
