    Onyx II Update #10: Christmas is Here!

    By Zio,

    Update Log.png

    December 16th, 2019

    Hello Everyone! We hope you are all doing well and are getting ready for the holidays! Today’s update comes earlier than the holiday but brings Onyx its anticipated Christmas event filled with new items, a new boss, and more! Let get into the patch notes:




    Evil Snowman Boss:

    It’s that time of the year again. The time of gifts, gatherings, decorations, and most of all, Santa. On his way to deliver gifts to Onyx, Santa was abducted by an Evil Snowman that has since, spread an ice age on Onyx. Christmas is his holiday, and this year has taken all the gifts for himself. Defeat him for some juicy rewards!

    1.      Added the Christmas Event Boss, the Evil Snowman.


    -        This boss functions like our world boss. Every 2-4 hours, the Evil Snowman will come around and challenge everyone in game in a fight. There are no limitations to this boss event, however we recommend groups of multiple players aside from just a solo instance.

    -        The Evil Snowman has his own attack sets, but his unique mechanic is that each time he drops below a certain amount of health, he will spawn minions that will not only attack you but heal him.

    -        Minions range from Krakens, Ice Strykworms, Mithril / Frost Dragons, Wyverns, Snowmen and more.

    -        Upon defeat, all players who contributed to the fight will receive a reward from Snowman's Loot table.

    -        When the event is live, teleport to ::Xmasevent to participate, note that as long as you do damage of 1k/200k, you will receive 3m GP.





    Christmas Mystery Box:

    1.      Added the new Christmas Mystery Box to our in-game and web stores.


    -        These boxes function differently from our typical boxes here on Onyx, similar to the ones seen in Halloween. When a player opens a box, he will not receive one reward, but rather three. A player will always receive an amount of cash, either a common or rare Christmas cosmetic (Or, if you’re lucky enough, the new Evil Santa pieces), and a valuable piece of weaponry / gear (Or, if you’re lucky enough, one of the new Evil Santa weapons.




    New LIMITED-TIME Christmas Items:

    1.      The Santa set has been re-introduced on Onyx and is obtainable through the new event boss / boxes.

    2.      The Evil Santa Set (Evil Santa's Hat, Evil Santa's Robe Top, Evil Santa's Robe Bottoms, Evil Santa's Gloves, and Evil Santa's Boots) has been added as a possible rare reward from the new Christmas boxes and Evil Snowman Boss. This set is BIS and features a combination of Ultimate Bandos + Ultimate Subjugation Stats, similar to our Demonic Reaper Set.

    3.      The Evil Santa's Socking (New Warhammer), Evil Santa's Reindeer (New Crossbow) and Evil Santa's Gift (New Wand) have been added to the new Christmas Mystery Boxes and Evil Santa Boss. The Warhammer is an enhanced edition of the famous Statius Warhammer, dealing higher crush damage with the same defense lowering special attack costing only 25%, with an increased attack speed. The new Reindeer Crossbow will feature upgraded stats of the Dragon Hunter Crossbow, shooting 2x bolts at once, with an increased attack speed. The new wand is offers high magic dps with bonuses on magic damage %, it is the best wand in Onyx, surpassing our Kodai Wand.

    Other Updates:

    1. Reboosted the Lightning Rapier, undid previous patch nerfs.

    2. Fixed a bug with the Avernic Defender on our store.

    3. Fixed Instances, allowing you to now join someone's instance.

    4. Increase global drop rates overall.

    5. Reduced Adamant and Rune Dragon's Defense.

    6. Added the Max Infernal Cape.

    7. Added Astors new Craw's Bow, The Night's End.

    8. Added the Max Fire and Infernal Capes.

    9. Turned on global snow and snowflakes, decorated home to match the Christmas Holiday Spirit.

    10. Added support for texture models.

    11. Fixed God Wars KC not being removed when you teleported out of an instance.

    12. VIP zone now grants a 10% XP boost instead of 5%.

    13. Reduced the price of Chaotics in our Dungeoneering store down to 1 Million tokens, originally it was 2 Million.

    14. Added the new Wrath of the Horde aura as a reward from completing the horde. The drop rate for this aura is 1/2, or 50%. This aura grants an overall 5% increase in Damage.
