    Onyx II Update #22: Halloween Event & Tweaks

    By Soulgazer,























    Onyx II Update #21: Great Edgeville, Interfaces, Commands, Slayer Expansion, & Zahur

    By Simplex,









    A New Era on Onyx

    • Friends, Iron-friends, Countrymen, lend me your ears:
    • Zio, King of Kings, hath commissioned his monks to renovate Onyx's capital city and trading center, Edgeville.
    • A devout believer in the divine Simplex beyond, Zio hath zealously built a great metropolis in his image. 
    • Henceforth, denizens of other server-states shall gaze upon Great Edgeville with envy.



    The King


    Six New Zones

    • The Edgeville you know is gone. It has been replaced with collection of Zones/Houses.
    • These are: Slayer, Thieving, Altar, Skilling, Shops, and the Information Kiosk ('Info Zone').
    • The Kiosk is meant to assist players on their journey, being a one-stop-shop for Q&A.
    • We intend on taking feedback and improving Great Edgeville in coming updates to best suit the community.




    Tutorial: Reimagined


    • We have scrapped the old Tutorial, bringing it in line with some of the more recent content additions to Onyx.
    • Hopefully, players will have a better understanding of the game upon completion.
    • The skip button remains; although with Zuk narrating, only a fool would anger the obsidian God, no?

    Drop Table interface






    • Disclaimer: These new commands are for Diamond+ Donators and can only be used Near a Bank!
    • For those vassals who have given to their good King, a new ease of living is brought to you!
    • PRAYER SWAPPING commands, live in game:
    •      ::pray swaps between the two prayer types, curses and standard prayers.
    •      ::regular swaps from curses to standard prayers.
    •      ::curses swaps from standard prayers to curses.
    • MAGIC SWAPPING commands, live in game:
    •      ::spellbook swaps spellbook types in this looping order: Standard Ancients Lunars (back to Standard)
    •      ::modern swaps to the Standard spellbook, specifically.
    •      ::lunar swaps to the Lunar spellbook, specifically.
    •      ::ancient swaps to the Ancients spellbook, specifically.




    Superior Slayer Monsters




    • Taxonomists around Onyx rejoice! Stronger breeds of slayer monsters have come!
    • These will be automatically unlocked for players above 70 Slayer.
    • The encounter rate is 1/50, meaning that a task of 100 monsters would net roughly two Superior Slayer monsters.
    • Superior Slayer Monsters have a centralized drop table (see image directly below).


    Superior Slayer Drops




    • This is the Superior Slayer Monster drop table. 
    • Know that the higher the slayer requirement of the task, the stronger the weight when rolling rarer drops.
    • Therefore, cheeky slayers are not recommended to farm Turadel for the best drops!
    • As seen above, it is plentiful for Ironmen looking to slay and later skill.

    The Imbued Heart

    • The Imbued Heart will boost a player's Magic level by 11 — in line with an Overload dosage.
    • This makes the Imbued Heart an excellent alternative to standard overloading in many situations.






    • Zahur should now work flawlessly. 
    • The world-renowned herbalist does the following things:
    • Cleaning herbs, Make unfinished potions, and Fill Flasks/Decant.










    Onyx II Update #20: Mimic Boss, Callus Improvements, Superior Slayer Revamp, Prifddinas Agility Course and More!

    By Soulgazer,






    Callus the Frostbourne




    • Simplex, the vengeful God that He is, has enjoyed Callus' daily eradication of the local populace.
    • He does pity the would-be mages of Onyx, rushing to Callus for fortune and glory — only to freeze solid.
    • In a rare gesture of kindness, He has made his champion more suitable for the common man.

    • Callus' drops will be more rewarding in quality and frequency.
    • Callus' minions will summon less frequently, as seen in the left snip-it.
    • Callus' lair will extinguish light sources less frequently, as seen in the right snip-it.






    • MVP designation now scales by party size. 
    • Note: 3 is the Maximum MVP's awarded in a Callus instance.
    • Soulgazer Comment: Solo's, Duo's, and 4-Man teams: 50%+ of participating players get MVP.





     Introducing the Mimic Boss!




    • Introducing The Mimic, a favorite diversion among OSRS players.
    • The boss mechanics will work exactly like OSRS, but with another way to access it.
    • You have a chance to face The Mimic by completing hard and elite clues, a higher chance for the latter. 
    • Mimic will be available twice a day via voting (use ::vote command). Said a different way, once every 12 hours.
    • The Mimic will reward players with Vote Tickets and GP always, a WIDE array of skilling supplies, and maybe even a pet!
    • The drop table is below. Click on the image to enlarge it. 



     Mimic Drop Table








    Donation Boxes & Crates

    (available from Shop on the Homepage)





    • This chart reflects the now-live status of Boxes/Crates across Onyx.
    • Millionaire's/Super/God Boxes have NOT been changed. Pet Mystery Boxes have been removed.
    • The Mystery Crate gets 3 total rolls, with enhancements for Super Box/God Box rolls.





      Prifddinas Agility Course




    • We have added a new agility course in in the elven city of Prifddinas (use ::prifddinas to access).
    • This course is meant as an alternative to the Wilderness course.
    • This course will now award Crystal Shards.





    Slayer Caskets




    • We are adding Slayer Caskets, which will be a random drop received by Slayer monsters during tasks.
    • There will be four variants, depending on tier of the slayer task. 
    • In general, the higher combat level of the Slayer monster, the higher the tier casket will be a possible reward.
    • We intend on the drop rate of these caskets to be ~1/70.


    Other Slayer Changes

    • Turadel Reassignment: If you do not wish to finish your slayer task, you can reset BOTH your task and your streak at Turadel.
    • WARNING: Doing this loses your streak! And you must then complete this task.
    • Moved boss slayer to its own NPC. Boss slayer tasks will now reward slayer points at a better rate.
    • Players can gamble their Fire Cape and Infernal Cape for a chance at the respective pets.
    • Skipping a task now works more accurately.
