  1. The Chambers of Xeric (CoX) has arrived on Onyx. CoX will be action packed, PvM-oriented, and optimized for player experience. This update will introduce game mechanics previously unseen on Onyx. This update will take Onyx in new directions with PvM, competition, and metagame. Furthermore, a CoX Strategy Guide (linked in the Guide Directory) has been released as a companion to the update: Chambers of Xeric consists of a linear, complete raid with all rooms. CoX has an unchanging order of rooms, listed in the image below. There are two types of rooms in CoX: “Bosses” and “Puzzles”. Management has balanced Onyx CoX to maximize PvM time. Puzzle rooms (Crabs, Ice Demon, Thieving, Tightrope) have been shortened. Olm Prep (usually directly before Olm fight) has been shortened. Let’s dive into some features… This update opens the door for a new type of PvM: OSRS Mode. OSRS Mode will be a classic take on Chambers of Xeric which will limit gear allowed inside to those only found within OSRS. To accomplish this, a gear “Blacklist” has been developed -- for OSRS Mode, only. Onyx Mode will have all items allowed. The Blacklist can be viewed here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1faXhpDiX_MREAKB3rhLAbKA7rSPAuTMP5aZgrWQvu5c/edit?usp=sharing This new feature allows you to make a choice. Do you wish to experience the vanilla CoX? Or do you wish to see the godly equipment of Onyx rip and tear? OSRS Mode offers higher innate DR, chance at Metamorphic Dust, and Boss Record distinction. Onyx Mode offers the possibility at higher CoX clear speed. Disclaimer: Don't worry fam — we got you on the math — take a deep breath. Along with release, a Promotional CoX period begins for both OSRS & Onyx Modes! Firstly: OSRS Mode gets an automatic +0.50 DR so that the two game are ~even in GP/hour. Secondly: CoX DR (helps your purple chances) is capped at 2 and 2.5 for Onyx Mode and OSRS Mode, respectively. Therefore, if your DR (seen in Quest Tab) is 2.0 or higher, the promo cannot raise you further. This measure was put into place to level the playing field and moderate the influx of items to healthy levels. See for yourself: The difference between the gray line and the orange line is what you'd expect with the promo and without. Midgame players, Rejoice! Lategame players, don't fret. Ex: A Sapphire player with a DR of 1.3 has a CoX DR of ~1.75 (Onyx) and ~2.25 (OSRS) during the promo. Ex: A Zenyte player with a DR of 2.1 has a CoX DR of 2 (Onyx) and 2.5 (OSRS) whether the promo is active or not. This means that, during the promotional, the vast majority of our playerbase has a fighting chance at drops. You can have a rocky raid with multiple deaths and get a purple, so don't be worried about misfortunes along the way. Unlocking Metagame Prayers: Players will no longer automatically have access to three prayers in the standard prayer book. These prayers are Preserve (level 55), Rigour (level 74), and Augury (level 77). From here forth, these prayers must be unlocked (Torn ~ Preserve, Dex ~ Rigour, and Arcane ~ Augury), prior to use. We understand that this was an oversight early on in Onyx development and players may be upset. However, we are confident that their addition to the metagame will add to the thrill of raiding and expand progression. The Unique Drop Table has been changed so that these prayer scrolls are fairly common. Gaze upon the Warped Armament of Xeric... Dragonshredder Crossbow: A student of olde Dragonkin, Xeric crafted a 1-handed bow of unparalleled power vs Draconic creatures. The Dragonshredder Crossbow increases both Ranged accuracy and Ranged damage by 30% against dragons. This crossbow shoots two bolts, the second being halved damage. Dragonhunter Claws: Dipped in the acid of the Great Olm, these claws are perfect for rending your opponent's flesh. The Dragonshredder Claws increases both Melee accuracy and Melee damage by 30% against dragons. Elder Warhammer: Tekton's craftsmanship and metallurgy in the palm of your hand — crush the armor of your enemies! The Elder Warhammer special attack lowers the defence of the target by 35% and depletes 33% special attack. As such, even without the Ring of Vigour, the Elder Warhammer can spec three times in succession. Corrosive Spirit Shield: Sharp crystalline and biting acid magically fused into the ultimate protective shield. This shield, after a brief period, procs Vengeance automatically. In addition, the shield sports some of the best statistics of any shield on Onyx. A fantastic combination of offense and defence. ... and much more spoils to gain: The number on the right side is the weights of each item tier. This mirrors OSRS' rewards mechanics: https://oldschool.runescape.wiki/w/Chambers_of_Xeric#Reward_system ... and don't forget your friends ... The Olmlet pet has a chance to drop both Onyx & OSRS Mode — a 1/65 chance if a purple is received. The Metamorphic Dust has a chance to drop on OSRS Mode ONLY — a 1/400 chance regardless of rewards. The Olmlet pet can metamorphose into Puppadile, Tektiny, Vanguard, Vasa Minirio, and Vespina. Thank you for your patience throughout the development of Chambers of Xeric. We look forward to raiding with you soon!
  2. Hey Pringles, Some thoughts, off the top: Your application has definitely been seen by Management. It'll be Zio's call on everything. I am unsure of what our needs are at the moment (I don't play Onyx so much anymore) but maybe I can chime in. Loving to help people is a HUGE plus. Playing for four weeks only is a HUGE minus. In my opinion, you have to know the game all the way inside-and-out to be a Support Team member. This is because you will get to field every question under the sun and provide feedback on game development, ethical things, etc. TLDR: (Just my opinion, doesn't reflect Zio's) It's a bit ambitious to be ready for Staff in four weeks. Try again in another four to six. I do hope that you'll continue to be a positive member in the community. And I'm proud that we have young entrepreneurs like yourself on Onyx. ~Derek
  3. Reach out to Monk, he does the rankings. Thanks!
  4. Hey bossman, Until forums update, I think it would be wise to post this rare find on #Marketplace on our Discord. Never hurts to have it posted on both platforms, but #Marketplace is more active currently. Thanks, ~Derek
  5. Callus the Frostbourne Simplex, the vengeful God that He is, has enjoyed Callus' daily eradication of the local populace. He does pity the would-be mages of Onyx, rushing to Callus for fortune and glory — only to freeze solid. In a rare gesture of kindness, He has made his champion more suitable for the common man. Callus' drops will be more rewarding in quality and frequency. Callus' minions will summon less frequently, as seen in the left snip-it. Callus' lair will extinguish light sources less frequently, as seen in the right snip-it. MVP designation now scales by party size. Note: 3 is the Maximum MVP's awarded in a Callus instance. Soulgazer Comment: Solo's, Duo's, and 4-Man teams: 50%+ of participating players get MVP. Introducing the Mimic Boss! Introducing The Mimic, a favorite diversion among OSRS players. The boss mechanics will work exactly like OSRS, but with another way to access it. You have a chance to face The Mimic by completing hard and elite clues, a higher chance for the latter. Mimic will be available twice a day via voting (use ::vote command). Said a different way, once every 12 hours. The Mimic will reward players with Vote Tickets and GP always, a WIDE array of skilling supplies, and maybe even a pet! The drop table is below. Click on the image to enlarge it. Mimic Drop Table Donation Boxes & Crates (available from Shop on the Homepage) This chart reflects the now-live status of Boxes/Crates across Onyx. Millionaire's/Super/God Boxes have NOT been changed. Pet Mystery Boxes have been removed. The Mystery Crate gets 3 total rolls, with enhancements for Super Box/God Box rolls. Prifddinas Agility Course We have added a new agility course in in the elven city of Prifddinas (use ::prifddinas to access). This course is meant as an alternative to the Wilderness course. This course will now award Crystal Shards. Slayer Caskets We are adding Slayer Caskets, which will be a random drop received by Slayer monsters during tasks. There will be four variants, depending on tier of the slayer task. In general, the higher combat level of the Slayer monster, the higher the tier casket will be a possible reward. We intend on the drop rate of these caskets to be ~1/70. Other Slayer Changes Turadel Reassignment: If you do not wish to finish your slayer task, you can reset BOTH your task and your streak at Turadel. WARNING: Doing this loses your streak! And you must then complete this task. Moved boss slayer to its own NPC. Boss slayer tasks will now reward slayer points at a better rate. Players can gamble their Fire Cape and Infernal Cape for a chance at the respective pets. Skipping a task now works more accurately.
  6. IGN: Soulgazer (I'll use the winnings for a Forums Guide contest)
  7. Are you referring to my having to "Approve" new messages?
  8. Before I destroy this with an image, lemme tuck it away here for editing purposes.
  9. Hello, and Welcome to Thread Purgatory! (Home of Threads that will exist, just not yet!) The BAD News: If you are reading this, odds are that you clicked on a Bossing Guide that does not exist yet! This thread is to give you an update on that front. If you would like to see my progress, click the Spoiler. The GOOD News: The good news is that we have a GREAT Support Staff who can assist you in the meanwhile. These are very knowledgeable players and can point you in the right direction regarding all things PvM. I assure you that I am working on our forums and that, in time, all of these threads will be GREEN. A decent estimation is by October's end. THANK YOU! ~ Soulgazer
  10. Combat Stats Guide Forum Moderator: This guide is meant as a placeholder for skills without a guide. Specificially: Attack, Strength, Defence, Ranged, Magic, and Hitpoints. Combat Stats are usually progressed one of two ways on Onyx: AFK Route: Combat dummies. These are found at ::shayzianhouse (9), ::home (2), ::dz (5), or ::ddz (2). Slayer Route: Fantastic for newcomers trying to skill and train combat simultaneously. This is my recommendation. References: Gear Guide: This guide shows gear stats and is helpful for decision-making. This thread will be updated at a later time. Thank You
  11. Howdy Dragon. Welcome to Onyx. Which bosses are you the most interested in? We have many, so would like to narrow it down. Your stats should be adequate to do any of them.
