    By Zio,


    October 30th, 2018

    Hello Everyone!

    Getting Started, I would like to apologize on behalf of the Onyx management team for a delay on this update. These past few weeks we have been very busy with several situations. With that however, we are proud to provide you all with a massive update to make up for the wait. This week’s update features a Halloween Event, a rework of our blood money system and shop, a buff to Galvek’s drop table, PvP and skilling fixes, a long-awaited vote shop, and so much more! Let’s dive right into the patch notes:


    Onyx Halloween Event:

    1. We wish you all a wonderful and safe Halloween, as a way to celebrate this holiday we will be hosting a Halloween event for the coming few weeks.
    2. Throughout this event, players hunting undead NPCs such as Zombies, Ghosts, and Skeletons will notice a rework of their drop tables. They now drop cosmetic items ranging from skeleton sets, jackolantern hats, and ghostbuster 500s as well as pumpkins and all XP lamps.
    3. Dwarf multi cannons are temporarily disabled when used on undead npcs during this event.


    Vote Shop:

    1. Added a vote shop on Onyx, players can obtain a total of 10 votes per day, 5 per 12 hours, and on top of receiving the usual cash, xp, and drop rate boosts, they will now receive vote tokens. These tokens can be used at the vote shop to buy cosmetics, money, and some highly sought-after medium tier gear!


    GFX Updates:

    1. Updated our client background and icon with a new look, featuring our new logos and custom backgrounds.
    2. Forums have been updated to feature our new logo, icon, and wallpapers. These will be updated periodically to keep the theme nice and fresh.
    3. We have added a ton of new banners on our forums which will make an appearance in the coming days / weeks.
    4. We have promoted a new GFX Artist, @central, shout out to him for his awesome contributions here on Onyx!


    PvP and Wilderness Updates:

    1. Fully reworked our blood money shop, let’s just say the old one was a bit messy and not worth the grind. All item prices have been heavily reduced, and some additions have been made. Blood money is now a valuable currency that will prove to be useful to any player.
    2. Fixed item values and items lost on death. You will now protect the most valuable items you possess when you are killed in the wilderness. Ex: Protect Dragon Claws over Dharok’s Plate body. This includes Lucky items.
    3. Improve the skulling system on Onyx, you will now no longer get skulled if you have auto-retaliate on and a familiar attack, or when you are tele blocked / snared.
    4. Blood money now goes directly into the bank upon dropping for Ruby Donators.
    5. Wilderness slayer tasks now give the player Blood Money when killing NPCs they are assigned.
    6. Added ::wildslayer and Wilderness Slayer to the Wilderness teleport options to teleport directly to the slayer master.
    7. ::PK now teleports you to Edgeville instead of clan wars, however you can still use ::Funpk to get to clan wars.
    8. Renamed PK Locators to PK Tablets.
    9. Removed the PK Tablet warning that a player is coming after you. Be careful out there!
    10. Players may now only use pk tabs once every 2 minutes.
    11. Added PK logs for staff members so they are better equip in handling disputes.
    12. Galvek’s drop table has been buffed to include some useful supplies that other Wilderness bosses drop, as well as a rare chance at some end level pvp gear.


    Referral System:

    1. Added a Referral System, unique new players who join Onyx now have an option to tell us where they came from. This will grant them rewards and you as well if you let us know!


    Store Updates:

    1. We have decided to host a sale on our store in celebration of Halloween. Featuring discounts and several items.
    2. Added H’Ween masks to our store for a limited amount of time.
    3. Added a custom designed Halloween Twisted Bow in limited quantities.


    VIP Zone Additions:

    1. Added uncharged orb obelisks to VIP zone for quick charging.
    2. Reworked the Hunting / Thieving Section to be more efficient.


    PvM and Skilling Updates and Fixes:

    1. Fixed the problem that sometimes showed incorrect kills left on a boss task.
    2. Fixed Cursed Magic Tree XP to the correct rates.
    3. Nerfed Hati / Skoll DPS, as it proved to be dropping too many people too quickly.
    4. Added one more moss giant at Varrock sewers as requested.
    5. Allowed players to now use the Dwarf Cannon at Dungeons as well as God Wars.
    6. Fixed the Barrows Gloves requirement showing that you need 10 Smithing when you really need 40.

    8. Fixed a bug with spell casting distance not working when not equiping a weapon.
    9. Slayer Task Streaks no longer reset when skipping a task except for when you cancel one with another Slayer Master.
    10. Reduced the Dwarf Multicannon ball delay.
    11. Made it so that you can open up the PvM timers highscores through the borders in the Theatre of Blood.

    2. Fixed client login failure when making a new account.
    3. Fixed the Occult altar right click options that allow you to directly change your spellbook.

    7. Admins can now set your donation total if you have donated on several accounts or through osrs gp.

    22. www.Onyxrsps.com now redirects you to our forums.
    23. Reworked our facebook page to make it look a bit more appealing, we will begin to be more active on there, so stay tuned!
    24. Added a ::events command that redirects you to the events section of our forums. We will be hosting nearly daily events, so be sure to attend for some fun and juicy rewards!
    25. The home teleport on the magic tab now opens the lodestone network. Instead of using this to teleport home, the donator zone, or accessing the teleports options, just use ::home, ::dz, and ::tp respectively.
    26. You can now eat a baguette. ;)
