    By Alpha,




    December 1st 2018

    Hello Everyone!

    Hello Everyone, first of all we'd like to apologize for the delay of this update, we'll keep the next ones more frequent but as you'll see this one has a lot of content/bug fixes. It features a New World Boss, Pet Additions, Quality of Life updates, Bug Fixes, and so much more! Let’s dive right into the patch notes:


    New Onyx World boss

    With this update we added a new World Boss event that will occur twice a day (6-18hr window). It has 100K hit points and will definitely be a challenge for small parties, therefore we recommend you to have at least 5-10 people to kill him! To get there, use the ::worldboss command when the announcement pops up ;)


    All participants that deal at least 1K damage will receive 500k cash as well as a chance at the common/uncommon drop table.


    The person with the most damage dealt will also have a shot at the rare/very rare/legendary tables.


    Legendary: Partyhats (with the exception of white/black), Santa Hat, Halloween Masks, Collector's necklace (more detail below), Onyx boss pet (5% extra drop rate when summoned).

    Very Rare: Chaotic Weaponry, Zenyte Jewelry, God Box.

    Rare: Vine Whip, Tentacle, Trident, Visage, Mystery Box, Premium Mystery Box.

    Uncommon: Large - Huge XP Lamps, Whip, Staff of Light, Dark Bow, 10m cash.

    Common: Skilling Supplies. Herbs and their Secondaries, Steel Plate bodies, Papayas, Yak Hides, Cannonballs.

    Always: 5m Cash.


    The collector's necklace has stats equal to that of a fury + the blood necklace amulet effect (heals u 40 hp every 15 seconds for every monster around you) and most importantly it banks all your drops when equipped.
