    Hello Everyone!

    Today brings an update that involves some new content in the wilderness, while at the same time improving the quality of life we have here on Onyx. We bring love to revenants by adding new tier 78 items and more blood money to their drop table, making them more worth the risk involved. We have fully reworked our normal donator zone for all our sapphire + donors we have. Edited our teleport interface to include a ‘previous teleport’ option, and introduced a contest where players have a chance of winning $1,000 as we would like to give back to our community! This isn’t our biggest update, but it is surely a good one, hope you all enjoy.

    August 8th, 2018


    Hello Everyone!

    Today the management team of Onyx bring you perhaps one of the biggest updates this server has ever seen. It is with great pleasure that we release the long anticipated second raid from OSRS, The Theatre of Blood, for the Onyx community to grind and enjoy! This is one of the most challenging content that OSRS and now us offer, granting the team that defeat Verzik Vitur (The Final Boss of the Theatre) a chance of some of the best items in game. Loads of new items have been introduced with this content, and they surely pay off. Alongside with this major content addition, we have updated our high scores, fixed a major glitch with voting, and a few other bug fixes featured with this update! We hope you all enjoy, and good luck with our newest challenge!

    Theatre of Blood:

    - Those who have showed victory during the beta version of the raid are now faced with 4 new bosses on this full release. Think you had it locked down before? Time to squad up and try the whole thing!

    - The Theatre of Blood is a linear raid. No randomization of bosses will be held, unlike the Chambers of Xeric. This raid offers six bosses, some proven to be more challenging then the rest.

    1. Added The Maiden of Sugadinti, the first encounter in the Theatre of Blood. At 70%, 50%, and 30% hitpoints, the Maiden will spawn 8 Nylocas Matomenos, which will walk straight toward her and heal her if they reach her from the northern and the southern walls. We recommend you bring ice spells to prevent this ;).

    2. Added the Pestilent Bloat, the second encounter in the Theatre of Blood. he bloat will walk around its room in a square as soon as the party enters the room. If any player is within its line of sight, the Bloat's flies will attack them. After seven or fourteen cycles of mutilated flesh falling from the ceiling, it will stop moving, allowing players to attack it.

    3. Added Nylocas Vasilias, the third encounter in the Theatre of Blood, and spawns after killing off the hordes of Nylocas Hagios, Ischyros, and Toxobolos.

    4. Added Sotetseg The Blood Beast, is the fourth encounter in the Theatre of Blood. Its fight consists of bouncing black range orbs, magic red orbs, a big red ball which can be soaked and divided by all members of the fight, and a teleportation to the shadow phase / maze. One of the most difficult bosses to master in the raid. 

    5. Added Xarpus, fifth encounter in the Theatre of Blood, fully coded to have 3 phases which include: Recovery, Poison, and Counter special effects.

    6. Added Lady Verzik Vitur, the final boss of the Theatre of Blood. She has two phases before her true form is presented. Phase 1 involves the players in the raid to use the dawn bringers special attack to damage the lady's shields. After this phase is completed, Verzik will get up from her throne and begin flying around the middle of the room. This second phase features bombs that will be tossed towards the players that will need to be avoided to increase your chances of survival. After this phase, her final form is shown which uses all three combat styles. She will summon nylocas during the fight, and charges up several powerful attacks to inflict towards players. Warning: you can be trapped in webs, damaged by a tornado which will heal the boss, and overall lose health very quickly. We wish you good luck.

    7. Added the treasure room for members of the team who are victorious in the fight for their lives. Good luck on some juicy rewards!


    Raid Items:

    1. Added the Sanguinesti Staff, with a chance to heal the player once in every 10 or so hits.

    2. Added the Ghrazi Rapier, with a buff of 10% strength bonus on top of a chaotic if equipped with an Avernic defender.

    3. Added the Avernic Defender, the best strength bonus defender in the game now.

    4. Added the Scythe of Vitur to the drop table. This scythe has a special ability of hitting a big boss three times instead of one with these damage rates. 100% - 50% - 25% of damage inflicted, meaning that if you were to hit a 600, you will in total hit: 600 + 300 + 150.

    5. Added Justiciar Armor, the most tank gear in game.


    Highscores Refresh:

    1. Updated the highscores theme to look more official.

    2. Highscores now feature all categories including game mode, skills, and completion percentage.


    Vote and Other Bug Fixes:

    1. Fixed the annoying vote bug that caused players with a space in their names to have difficulty voting and claiming their rewards.

    2. Fixed the glitch with our rune pouch, making runes disappear from the pouch in bank if you die in the wilderness.

    3. Fixed degrading item glitch involving ganodermic, crystal shields and more, occurring from our latest update. You can now safely use your degrading items without worry!

    4. Another Goat has been added to home.


    We hope you all enjoy this update, as it is surely a nice one!

    Good Luck on the Grind!


    Update: After 5 hours of release the first group has completed the Theatre of Blood.

    Congratulations to: Stay Grindin, Black, Nick, Friendship, and Didgeridoo.
