    🌜The Nightmare of Ashihama!🌛



    I am glad to announce the completion of The Nightmare boss fight! Like many of the bosses on Onyx, we take pride in trying to keep a close 1:1 ratio with the live game when coding mechanics of the fight and you should expect it to be up to standards.




     🥋Inquisitor's Armor and Weapons🥋


    The Inquisitor's armor set offers a fairly high boost in Crush to compliment the Inquisitor's Mace. Additionally, we have introduced the Nightmare Staff alongside it's other three varients: Eldritch, Harmonised, and Volatile all in which may be obtained from the boss.

    ONYX II UPDATE #12: Keepsake Keys, Bank Place-Holders, Presets, New Loyalty Shop & Vote Shop, QoL/Bug Fixes, AND MORE!

    Monk Bird
    By Monk Bird,


    January 29, 2020

    Greetings everyone, I hope all has been well as we're now ready to launch a much anticipated update with multiple quality of life updates that you guys have been suggesting, so we delivered! 


    This Update will be focused primarily on QoL, but stay tuned as we wrap up Janurary and begin to start some content updates coming out in the near future!


    💰Bank Placeholders💰


    Players will now be able to more efficiently organize their banks as we have integrated a placeholder system that remembers where you last placed an item. This will allow any items taken out of the bank to display a value of 0 while holding that item there in place! (placeholders) 



    Tired of your buddy wasting your overload dose by taking 5 minutes to gear up for Theator of Blood? Worry no longer, as we now have Presets available!




    All players will have access to two preset slots

    Saphire Donators will have access to five preset slots

    Ruby Donators will have access to 10 preset slots

    Zenyte Donators will be allowed to use presets anywhere that they may also ::bank, without having to be near a bank.


    25574.pngKeepsake Keys25574.png



    Keepsake Keys will allow a player to alter the appearance of any equipment slot to any item they own permanently. These keys will be valued at $4 each in the Donator Store and once used, the key will be consumed. 

    1. You may only have one key active per equipment slot at a time
    2. All keepsake key effects will be disabled upon entering the wilderness
    3. You must own the item that you are using the keepsake key on for the item appearance to be enabled. If said item is sold, or given back to a player because it was lent, the effect will be disabled until the item is back in your inventory or bank
    4. Mr. Ex is now at home and will reset all keepsakes you currently own. Warning: This option is meant for permanently disabling your current keepsakes and will require you to purchase the keys again upon doing so


    🏆Loyalty Shop Revamped🏆


    Our main man, Loyal Dan, is back with a plan to make you a fan of a complete rework on our loyalty shop!




    Loyalty tokens are awarded to your bank for each hour of playtime you have on Onyx. In addition to adding many new items we have also decided to reduce many of the previous items in there as well!

    Keep in mind, all items on our loyalty shop are cosmetic without any stats!


    🎟️Vote Shop Revamped🎟️


    Additionally, we have decided to rework our vote shop to include a few extra skilling tools and reduced a few prices!



    🌟Quality of Life/Player Suggested Updates:🌟

    1. Fixed a bug caused by the last update which did not allow players to smith while having a full inventory.
    2. Added an option to filter all stat boosts messages written in chat by wearing any of the custom "ultimate sets".
    3. Fixed a bug where wearing full obsidian armor would give the respective set bonus to any weapon. This was changed so the set bonus will work with any TzHaar weapon just like RS.
    4. Fixed a bug where players were unable to create a Soul Necklace. It may not be made by combining an Occult Necklace with a Soul Stone.
    5. Updated the quest tab to display if the current slayer task is from a slayer master or a wildy slayer master.
    6. Fixed the description of a fletching task to display it correctly as "string bows".
    7. Fixed a bug where the Wrath of the Horde Aura did not give it's respective damage boost while using melee combat.
    8. Added a global message that will announce whenever a player has completed all tasks on our Task System.
    9. Optimized a few formulas in the code which will boost overall server performance.
    10. Added an option to game settings to toggle cosmetic overrides on/off.
    11. Swap/Insert option now saves.
    12. Reduced the damage of all pvp custom-weapons in wilderness by 50%
    13. Added Rune Ores to the Donator Zone.
    14. Theator of Blood not counting as a Boss Slayer KC has been fixed.
    15. Removed Onyx and Bork from Boss Slayer Tasks.
    16. Fixed an bug which did not allow the Ghrazi Rapier to be placed in the Upgrade Chest.
    17. Fixed a bug where Bone Dagger (P++) would not attack.
    18. Weapon attacks styles are now saved based on weapon type when switching weapons.
