    Onyx Update #76: Nomad boss, New BIS Necklaces, Stronghold of Safety, QoL, Bug Fixes, and More!

    By Alpha,


    March 30th 2019

    Hey guys ;) Hope everyone's doing alright :) 

    It is my pleasure to present you the patch notes for today's update. It includes Nomad as a repeatable boss with its own drop table, new necklaces that can hold the stats of some of the best amulets in-game along with the looter's necklace ability, the Stronghold of Safety and more. Let's get into the update notes!


    New repeatable boss : Nomad



    1. Some of you may already have fought Nomad in the Nomad's Requiem quest or in Dominion Tower. Well, he is coming to the live game as a repeatable boss, featuring his own unique drop table.
    2. With the addition of Nomad as a repeatable boss, we are also releasing 5 brand new necklaces, more details below.
    3. We are also added a Nomad pet as a very rare drop on that table. Should you be lucky enough to get it, you will get a 4% bonus to your drop rate increase whilst it's following you. We will also be holding a contest in the form of a race to see who receives the pet first. Winner will be awarded a looter's necklace!
    4. Furthermore, we have also added the Wings of Wealth (10% bonus drop rate aura) to his drop table, now making it obtainable in game.
    5. Finally, it also drops imbue scrolls for your rings! No longer needed to wait for a Castle Wars game to fill up in order to enchant them.


    To celebrate Nomad boss release we are hosting a little contest : the first person to get a Nomad pet drop from him will get a free looters necklace ! So get grinding and may rngesus be with you.


    New Necklaces

    1. Looters Necklace of Anguish can be made by combining a Looter's Necklace with a Necklace of Anguish. (looters effect + anguish stats)
    2. Looters Amulet of Torture can be made by combining a Looter's Necklace with an Amulet of Torture. (looters effect + torture stats)
    3. Looters Soul Necklace can be made by combining a Looter's Necklace with a Soul Necklace. (looters effect + occult stats with 15% magic damage instead of 10)
    4. Soul Amulet can be made by combining an Arcane Stream Necklace with a Soul Stone (Arcane stream stats with 15% magic damage instead of 10) - Nomad Drops the Soul Stone as one of his unique drops.
    5. Infinity Necklace can be made by combining Looter's Anguish + Torture + Soul Necklaces. It's stats are insane as it combines all 3 necklaces into one with the looters necklace effect (stats below). However, it will be a grind to obtain, so best of luck! Requirements: 1x Anguish, Torture, Soul Necklace, and 3x Looter's Necklaces.

    Check out the bottom of these patch notes for the stats of each Necklace!


    New Dungeon : Stronghold of Player Safety



    1. This new dungeon should prove helpful to our newest players as it features some cockroach soldiers that have a decent drop table (runes/cash mostly) and the easiest source in-game for easy and medium clue scrolls.
    2. Cockroach soldiers task has also been added to the lower level slayer masters.

    7. Added new announcements that are displayed above your chat box making it harder (almost impossible really) to miss them ;) You can disable/enable them with the ::switchnotifications command.

    9. Trees now respawn much faster in vip zone.

    Hey guys ;) Hope everyone's doing alright :) 

    It is my pleasure to present you the patch notes for today's update. It brings a couple of new features / quality of life features and bug fixes!


    New activity : Aerial fishing




    1. This new fishing/hunter activity requires a minimum level of 43 Fishing and 35 Hunter. Players can hunt for various fish and salamanders with a Cormorant, much like Falconry where players hunt kebbits with a gyr falcon.
    2. This new activity features a handful of cosmetics such a fishing net and a brand new fishing set.
    3. Obtaining the full set is now a completionist cape requirement.

    1. These new wings, obtainable on our webstore in the form of an aura, will give you 10% extra drop rate when equipped (provided the aura also is activated - it has no cool down) and +5 prayer bonus.


    New item : Onyx Blood scythe




    1. This new weapon is an upgraded version from the Scythe of Vitur. It features a 30% boost to all accuracy stats and a +5 strength bonus. You may also obtain the blood gem from the Onyx boss (very rare chance).

    2. Added a bonus agility xp multiplier on agile top and legs - 1% bonus experience for each of them, 3% if both are worn.
    3. Berserker necklace now buffs the Elder maul's stats - it was a pretty underused weapon not on par with the chaotic maul counterpart.

    10. Should you donate/obtain a fire/kiln/inferno cape from our store you will be awarded 1 killcount for the corresponding mingiame. Please note that this effect will not stack (therefore still needing to kill 2 more for the trim completionist cape requirement).

    Onyx Update #74: Alchemical Hydra, Karuulm Slayer Dungeon, Improved Donator Benefits, Quality of Life, Bug Fixes, and More!

    By Zio,


    February 26th 2019

    Hello Everyone, hope you all are doing well.

    I am pleased to announce that the staff team is bringing yet another massive update to Onyx today! This week’s update brings Oldschool Runescapes new Alchemical Hydra Boss, along with Wyrms, Drakes, and small Hydras all located in the Karuulm Slayer Dungeon in Mount Karuulm. This update also comes along with all the new weaponry and gears available from these monsters. We have also brought along a full buff to our donator ranks, as some of them seemed like they deserve the extra benefits. Lastly, we have added some new quality of life updates as well as addressed some bugs that people have reported.


    Alchemical Hydra:


    1.      One of the most significant updates brought to you this week is the introduction of the Alchemical Hydra. The Alchemical Hydra is a boss found in the lower level of the Karuulm Slayer Dungeon and requires 95 Slayer to kill. Some of the unique drops that this boss offers is the Hydra’s Eye, Hydra’s Fang, Hydra’s Heart, Hydra’s Tail, Hydra Leather, and Hydra’s Claw.

    2.      Added the Brimstone Ring by combining the Eye, Heart, and Fang from the Hydra. This ring offers the stats of all the DK Rings combined together. (Note this does not mean the imbued stats, just the regular ring stats).

    3.      Added the Bonecrusher Necklace by combining Hydra’s tail, a bonecrusher and the dragonbone necklace. Wearing this will allow you to automatically pick up and bury your bones.

    4.      Added the Dragon Hunter Lance by using a Hydra’s Claw on a Zamorakian hasta. It offers a unique mechanic of 20% extra accuracy and damage when fighting against dragons.


    Karuulm Slayer Dungeon:


    1.      Added the full Oldschool Runescape Karuulm Slayer Dungeon.

    2.      Drakes have now been added to this dungeon, their unique drops include the Drake’s Tooth used to create devout boots, and the Drake’s Claw used to create Boots of Brimstone.

    3.      Both Devout Boots and Boots of Brimstone have been added ingame and have had their bonuses implemented. They are possible drops from Drakes, already crafted, and globally announce when dropped.

    4.      Wyrm’s have been added to the Karuulm Slayer Dungeon. They now drop the Dragon Sword, Harpoon, Knife, and Thrownaxe. As such, all of these items have been added ingame and work properly with their special attacks.

    5.      Hydra’s have been added to this dungeon, they drop the Hydra piece similar to the Alchemical Hydra as well as the new dragon weaponry.

    6.      Other NPCs such as Demons have been added to the second floor of this dungeon.

    7.      Konar, Kuradel, and Duradel have a chance of assigning these monsters as a slayer task. Please note that Konar will gve you the best chance to obtain this task, and that if you are assigned Hydras, you may kill the Alchemical Hydra to complete this task if you wish.

    8.      Added Sulphur Lizards to the middle of the Karuulm Slayer Dungeon.

    9.      We recommend you all refer to the Oldschool Wiki to learn about these monsters and their unique mechanics until we can introduce some guides on our forums!


    Improved Donator Rank Benefits, Changes and New Additions:


    1.      We have added a new system of acquiring donator ranks to go along with our current one. You will now automatically be rewarded a donator rank when you reach 5x their worth. For example: If you are not sapphire, but have a total of $75 donated to Onyx, you will be auto promoted to that rank. You can either purchase ranks directly or earn the benefit overtime. Please note that if you are already a rank higher than your amount donated threshold, you will not lose that rank!

    2.      Drop Rate Buffs: Ruby Donator now gives you 35% drop rate bonus as opposed to 30%. Diamond Donator now grants you 55% drop rate bonus instead of 40%. Lastly, Onyx Donator now gives you an 80% drop rate bonus instead of 50%. We felt like these ranks needed a buff because of the expense that comes along with them, especially the later ones.

    3.      Added the teleport commands: (::Armadyl, ::Bandos, ::Saradomin, and ::Zamorak) to Ruby Donators which teleports them to the doors of these GWD Bosses.

    4.      Emerald Donators now automatically pick up and bank herbs. While Ruby Donators now automatically pick up and bank bones and ashes.

    5.      Non-PvP items no longer degrade while wearing or using them in combat if you are an Onyx Donator.

    6.      Auras no longer have a cool down time as an Onyx Donator, and your overload will now last 10 minutes rather than 5!

    7.      Vip Zone now grants 5% XP Bonus when skilling in the area.

    8.      Added the Onyx Blood Scythe to our Donator Store. We are testing the waters with this weapon. This is an upgraded version of the Scythe of Vitur and always hits 3x on all monsters per attack. It has 30% extra accuracy and 5 extra strength bonus compared to the regular Scythe of Vitur. It features a special attack and unique cosmetic black and red wings when equipped. The special attack hits 2x instead of 3x but does not have a damage drop off like the regular Scythe of Vitur, but instead boosts the hits to 110%.

    9.      Lastly we improved the quantity of money that a player received from MBoxes by 30-35% to balance with the changes in our money making methods in-game.

    10.   Improved the current shop at our Donator Zone and added a unique shop to VIP Zone.

    11.   We felt like our donation system was lacking, and after some feedback from the staff and the community, we have implemented these changes.


    Quality of Life Fixes:


    1.      Added Stats and Compare options for equipment bonuses.

    2.      Improved item weight registration (as some were incorrect).

    3.      Fixed the shops stat interfaces when it comes to gear and weapons.

    4.      Fixed our shop descriptions for equipment, making them clearer in-game.

    5.      Dominion Tower Gloves now last 4x longer!

    6.      Fixed the glitch when viewing skill guides, now it runs smoothly.

    7.      Improved Dragonstone Bolt special attacks.

    8.      Monks of Zamorak at the Chaos Temple now drop wine of Zamorak.

    9.      Disabled Random Events! RIP to all the past HCIM.

    10.   Removed most of the requirement to wear Barrows Gloves, now all you need is 70 Cooking.

    11.   Fixed the glitch preventing EU Timezone players from voting, and improved our system overall.

    12.   Both blue snail helmets now work for clue scrolls.

    13.   Crystal chests award 1.5M now instead of 150k as it was meant to.

    14.   Make vote tickets tradable, this should help new players with easy money making methods.

    15.   Replaced the Zenyte Stall at home with the Sapphire one as intended. This stall was moved to DZ and VIP Zone.

    16.   Increased the Whip and Dark Bow price in the Loyalty Shop to 300 and the Staff of Light to 500. This was considered pretty overpowered by allowing players to obtain these items too quickly.

    17.   Changed the Staff of Light to cost 120 Vote Tickets as it is a very powerful staff.


    Bug Fixes:


    1.      Strawberries can now be eaten.

    2.      Fixed Tormented Wraith NPCs, so they now work and interact with you properly.

    3.      Fixed how you could use skin prayers with Rigour and Augury, you no longer can.

    4.      Fixed the bug allowing you to use Eagle Eye and Mystic Might at the same time.

    5.      Fixed the Elf Warrior Attack Animations.

    6.      Fixed the level requirement for Nature and Law Runecrafting.

    7.      Fixed the Spitbark Helmet graphical bug.

    8.      Removed the School Girl from the Axe Hut in Wilderness, don’t ask me how she got there.

    9.      Fixed the VIP Portal, allowing you to now travel around the world of Onyx once again!



    I hope you all enjoyed this update, get grinding, there’s new items to obtain!

    See you all In-Game!
