    Hello Everyone!

    You asked, we answered. You all have been wanting boss slayer tasks for quite some time now, well today is it my pleasure to announce that they are finally released! Head over to Kuradel to receive your boss tasks anytime you would like! On top of that, this update also brings improved loot from boxes, as well as multiple bug fixes guaranteeing a better gameplay for all.

    Slayer Updates:

    1.      Added boss slayer tasks, receivable from Kuradel in the Ancient Caverns. This requires the player to have at-least 75 slayer level and be willing to defeat some of Onyx’s most difficult bosses. Don’t worry, we made sure to make it reward!

    2.       The higher your rank ingame, the more boss tasks you may skip per day.

    3.      Added Frost Dragons to the Slayer Task pool.

    Loot Update:

    1.      Increased the coins received from MBOXes.

    2.      Made donator rank and vote drop rate bonuses now increase the likelihood of obtaining a rare drop from the Theatre of Blood, this should make drops easier. If this proves to be too op we will proceed to nerf this.

    3.      Doubled the chance for a Nex piece from the God Box as players were complaining it was too rare.

    4.      Made infinity pieces and wands announce when dropped in Mage Arena.

    Bug Fixes:

    1.      Fixed the amount of XP given to a player when harvesting a Calquat tree.

    2.      Fixed a bug causing Frost Dragon bones to be untradable.

    3.      Rune Pouch no longer is lost on death outside of the wilderness.

    4.      Fixed a bug causing the Corporeal Beast eating its own core.

    Other Changes:

    1.      Added a board at Theatre of Blood which opens the highscores for boss timers.

    2.      Removed a variety items from our store in an effort to stabilize our economy further.


    Hope you all enjoy this small but packed update!

    Next one in a week!
