    Onyx II Update #8: Halloween Event

    By Zio,

    November 6th, 2019


    Hello Everyone! We hope you are all doing well and have had a very nice Halloween. Today’s update comes later than intended but brings Onyx its anticipated Halloween event filled with new items, a new boss, and more! Let get into the patch notes:




    Grim Reaper Boss:

    It’s that time of the year again. The time of costumes, trick or treating, and most of all, the time of death for the Grim Reaper. Halloween is his holiday, and this year he is back with another challenge.

    1.      Added the Halloween Event Boss, the Grim Reaper.




    -        This boss functions like our world boss. Every 2-4 hours, the Grim Reaper 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 Grim Reaper 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 KBD, Galvek, Jads, Pheonix, Barrelchest and more.

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

    -      Added the Flaming Jack-O-Lantern to Grim Reaper's drop table at 1/10 chances.

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




    Halloween Mystery Box:

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




    -        These boxes function differently from our typical boxes here on Onyx. 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 Halloween cosmetic (Or, if you’re lucky enough, the new Demonic Reaper pieces), and a valuable piece of weaponry / gear (Or, if you’re lucky enough, one of the new Demonic Reaper’s weapons.




    New LIMITED-TIME Halloween Items:

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

    2.      The Demonic Reaper Set (Demonic Reaper Mask, Robe Top, Robe Bottoms, Gauntlets, and Greaves) has been added as a possible rare reward from the new Halloween boxes and Grim Reaper Boss. This set is BIS and features a combination of Ultimate Bandos + Ultimate Subjugation Stats.

    3.      The Demonic Reaper’s Bane (New Scythe), Demonic Reaper’s Fang (New Bow) and The Demonic Staff (New STOD) have been added to the new Halloween boxes and Grim Reaper Boss. The scythe will have a higher DPS than our current blood scythe, but does not have it’s healing abilities. The new Fang will future upgraded stats of a normal dark bow, shooting 2x arrows at once, with a 200% attack speed boosts. The new staff is BIS with the highest magic offensive bonuses along with a 145% damage bonus on undead NPCs.


    We apologize for the delay on this Halloween, and we hope you enjoy it!
