January 12th, 2018
Hello Everyone,
Hope you all are doing well, I am pleased to announce that we have updated the server today bringing you some pretty sweet new content. This weeks update bring a new gamemode, with an available partnering feature, the ability to obtain gear from Chambers of Xeric, buffs to the starter game of Onyx, crystal chest rework, and a lot more!
With that said, let's get into the patch notes:
New Gamemode: Hardcore Ironman (Duo Option Available):
1. After listening to player feedback for the last few weeks, we have decided to release the Hardcore Ironman Gamemode, allowing players to become an Ironman, with the extra challenge of not dying, which would result in the removal of hardcore status.
2. This gamemode will be more difficult than the normal ironman, featuring 10x XP rates and a bonus drop rate of 25%.
3. New Hardcore Ironmen will have the option of selecting a duo partner. This is a feature unseen on other servers when it comes to Hardcore Ironman, allowing you to trade with one other person on the same game mode. Be aware however, you can only have one partner, once selected, you will not be able to switch.
4. If you and your partner die, you both will remain in a duo ironman rather than hardcore.
5. If only your partner dies, he or she will turn into a solo ironman until the other falls, joining them in a normal ironman group.
6. We nerfed the amount of shops at ::shops that HCIM will be permitted to use.
7. Lootshare is disabled for HCIM, as you can trade your partner regardless and there will be no need for it.
8. HCIM will be allowed to use stealing creation tools, along with regular ironman at a lower xp bonus compared to other modes.
9. A list of achievements have been set up on a separate forum post for HCIM. Rewards will be given out for each achievement depending on difficulty, so best of luck on your grind! Do ::thread 1385 in-game to view these Achievements!
Chambers of Xeric Loot:
1. Since Chambers of Xeric is not fully released just yet (in the works), we have decided to add a method for a chance to obtain some of the gear from it such as Ancestral, Twisted Bow etc.
2. Added an option in the completion of the Theatre of Blood raid that allows players to choose between Raids 1 or Raids 2 loot.
3. Chambers of Xeric loot will be available with a nerfed drop rate compared to its rates on completion of the actual raid.
Crystal Chest and Thieving Rework:
1. We have completely reworked our reward pool for Crystal Chests, making them more profitable for everyone. The possible drops are now as follows, all will come with the normal uncut dragonstone along with:

500k GP
250 Maple Logs
150 Yew Logs
100 Magic Logs
25 Uncut Sapphires and Emeralds
15 Uncut Rubies and Diamonds
10 Battlestaves
25 Green D’hide
20 Blue D’hide
15 Dragon Bones
250 Oak Planks
150 Mahogany Planks
20 Grimy Ranarrs and 50 Snape Grass
20 Grimy Snapdragons and 50 Red Spider Eggs
20 Grimy Toadflax and 35 Crushed Nests
100 Papaya Fruits
100 Limpwurts
100 Whiteberries
250 Gold Ore
100 Mithril Bars
5 Yew Seeds
A Crystal Key to Reroll
2. All stalls at home that give you a variety of crushed gems have had their values changed. They are now worth 50% more.
Quality of Life and Bug Fixes:
1. Bonfires are now allowed to be renewed if already active.
2. Added a direct teleport to the grotesque guardians in our blue portal or ::Tp.
3. Pernix gloves now give an extra hp boost when worn.
4. Fixed an issue making it so players were not allowed to enter Nomad’s tent when teleporting in.
5. Removed the 5% drop rate boost from bankpin as they are now required to play Onyx.
6. Made it so Collector’s Necklace stops autolooting if player has been afk for more than 5 minutes, as it proved to be a little overpowered.
7. Fixed the bug not allowing players to combine emerald tips on mithril bolts.
8. Dragon Hunter Crossbow now works on Vorkath.
9. Fixed the trivia question regarding the teleport to our gambling zone. Hint the answer is Dice!
10. Slayer helmets now work on boss tasks.
11. Dwarven Stouts now boost mining and smithing instead of decreasing it.
12. Players can now teleport directly to the QBD Lair instead of having to go through the multiple floors of the dungeon.
Other Updates:
1. Removed the Christmas Event, the snowmen will be heavily missed.
2. New accounts now start with level 1 in Herblore rather than level 3.
3. Fixed a spelling error with our dicing king at the gamble zone.
4. Renamed the Collector’s Necklace to Looter’s Necklace. All you collecting is the loot anyways.
5. Added the ::ref <name> command for those who skipped our referral interface upon account creation.
6. Added honeycomb looting option to beehives.
7. Added the dungeoneering master cape animation.
8. Created a custom Nomad pet for Dropsrs.
9. Removed Ancient Ceremonial from our store.
10. Completely reworked God Boxes, making them have a 4x better drop table and loot chance.
As always, we hope you all enjoy our update. Please leave your comments down below.
We have a lot of big things planned for the near future, stay tuned!
See you in-game
