    Onyx Update #69: Christmas Event, World Boss Fix, Blood Money Exchange, Pet Bonuses, Quality of Life Updates, and more!

    By Zio,


    December 21st, 2018

    Hello Everyone, hope all is well. Today the Onyx Management team brings you a sweet update to kick of the holidays. This update features a new Christmas event, with a slightly redesigned home area, while skilling or PvMing, all players will receive a snowman random event. During this event, you will be challenged to kill the snowman using only snowballs, so be sure to carry some on you! These will drop a wide range of cosmetic items, with a rare chance at a Santa Hat and Christmas Master Wand! Alongside this event, we have added the ability for players to sell blood money shop items in an exchange for 10% currency. That’s not all, we have quite a few things to get to for this update, lets jump into the patch notes:


    Christmas Event:

    1.      Players who partake in skilling or PvM activities will now receive random snowman events. This event will challenge the player to kill a snowman using only snow. Once slain, these snowman can drop a variety of cosmetic and useful items.

    2.      Santa Hat and Christmas Master Wand has been added to snowmen drop table.

    3.      Snow has been enabled on Onyx, you can throw it at people or use them as a weapon on Snowmen. Pick up your snow today at home! I promise I won’t charge you this time.

    4.      Change the music at home to a Christmas theme.


    World Boss and PvM Updates:

    1.      We have been noticing that a lot of you have been rather angry at the new world boss completionist requirement. To address this, we have made it that players will have the chance to receive a kc for each phrase kill of the World Boss. All you got to do is show others who’s boss once.

    2.      Improved the world boss announcement to broadcast any significant drops and loot beams.

    3.      Added an epic soundtrack when fighting the World Boss.

    4.      All participants will now receive a global participation reward when dealing atleast 1,000 damage on the world boss.


    Blood Money Shop Exchange and PvP Updates:

    1.      Players now can sell their blood money loot back to the shop for about a 10% refund. Allowing you to farm revs for an even more overwhelming amount of blood money per hour.

    2.      Disabled cannons being able to attack familiars in the wilderness to prevent skull tricking.

    3.      Funpk white portal will no longer remove your skull to prevent abuse.

    4.      Corrected item values to prevent players from keeping irrelevant items over important ones on death.


    Pet Bonuses:

    1.      We have added passive bonuses to nearly all our pets on Onyx!

    Rather than cluttering up our forum thread, here is a rough draft of all the benefits (Please ignore the spelling / grammar mistakes, but these buffs are correct): https://pastebin.com/LnXPeReb

    2.      You can now use your pets at the Inferno, Skotizo, Vorkath, Grotesquest Guardians, and Zulrah.

    3.      Improved familars during combat so that they are able to follow you if you are not in reach.


    Item Fixes:

    1.      Fixed the Toxic Blowpipe, allowing players to now receive their scales back after uncharging it.

    2.      Fixed the Serpentine Helmet, allowing players to now receive their scales back after uncharging it.

    3.      Added an additional warning when attempting to dismantle these items in exchange for 20,000 zulrah scales.


    Other Updates:

    1.      Completionist cape now requires 30 boss tasks to obtain. Boss tasks have been corrected and you will now only receive 100% completable ones.

    2.      Completionist cape now requires 20 npc kills of all Slayer monsters rather than 10.

    3.      Completionist cape now requires completion of 10 treasure trails.

    4.      Completionist cape now requires 250 DT kills to obtain.

    5.      World Boss Completionist cape requirement is now much easier to complete.

    6.      Made the spiders at Verzik able to be frozen.

    7.      Reaction event now announces when you win a lamp.

    8.      Made it so chaos elemental can only teleport people in its area in which it is enclosed. This will allow us to use it during PvM Horde events.

    9.      ::Nex is now a tp available to Onyx Donators.

    10.   Zaros KC now shows in godwars always.

    11.   Removed ¾ infinity sets from mystery boxes.

    12.   Added Halloween masks to mystery boxes to lower the amount of party hats in the game.

    14.   Added Santa and Black Partyhat to mystery boxes

    15.   Fixed rares icon on webstore.

    Hope you all enjoy,

    See you in-game!
