  1. Hello Everyone, Throughout the past few months, my partner and I have been monitoring the state of Onyx. Onyx, as many of you may know, has been running and thriving for nearly 2 years, longer than any other OSRS/Pre-EOC mashup server ever. However, during recent months, Onyx has seen a steady decline in its player base. At first glance, we chalked this decrease in player base up to new servers opening and larger OSRS content updates - but it's been made relatively clear to us (through speaking to you all) that there have been some underlying problems that have been dampening the overall player experience on Onyx for some time now. As many of you have told us - our game modes and economy are in need of a serious revitalization, an overhaul if you will, alongside our donation system. After serious consideration and weighing of both pros and cons, we have decided that in order to continue to provide the server we are proud to own and play, we need to make some quite major changes. This being said - we are looking at a revamp of every game mode, rates at which GP comes into the game, end game content expansion, and above all else - a fresh start. Effective this Saturday, 10am EST (same as in-game time), Onyx will be relaunching under the same name, but with a fresh start. This means that all accounts will be reset, where everyone is starting from square one together, participating in a fresh economy and grind for power and wealth. In addition to a restart, all banned accounts will have their bans lifted, welcoming them back into the server for a second chance and a fresh start among their peers. We understand the frustration this may cause many of you - and we want to reiterate we have not made this decision lightly. The future of Onyx is in all of our hands - and, having tweaked a good portion of Onyx' core, we believe this is the best step in the right direction towards us seeing Onyx once again become the successful and bustling server it once was. As for those who donated recently, we will be offering refunds in the form of donator shards once the reset occurs. We will handle refunds in the following manner: 1. Donations within the past 30 days will receive a 100% refund. 2. Donations within the past 31-60 days will receive a 50% refund. 3. Donations within the past 61-90 days will receive a 25% refund. 4. Donations within the past 91-365 days will receive a 10% refund. 5. Players who have logged in between June 1st - June 14th will keep their corresponding donator rank. If your donation falls into this one of these periods, make sure to pm the Onyx Management team and we will get you sorted out manually. For Monthly Top Donators: Your monthly donator pet will be restored after you pm us. With that being said we invite you all to join us for a next chapter. Onyx will be resetting upon the update this Saturday, June 15th. Our Newest Update:
  2. May 30th, 2019 Promotions 1. @Madoc has been promoted to Server Support! 2. Doobie11 has been promoted to Server Moderator! Demotions 1.

  9. Hey Bilobo, Just wanted to let you know that I did not forget about you. I know you are currently going through something and have your priorities you need to handle. I am not sure how active you are, as you have multiple accounts, but I am sure you are still around. I really hoped for some community feedback as it helps with my decision making, but for now I will have to deny this application. See you around, Zio
  10. Hey Jeremy, Just wanted to let you know that I did not forget about your application my man. It seems as if you are taking some time off Onyx at the moment as you work on other things. Also I usually request feedback on applications before I even comment on them. Hope to see you around, Zio //DENIED

  15. 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!
