Half month has past and we already have lots of great updates!
As most of you have noticed, we have 2 more websites to vote on, this helps to spread more server advertisement and bring more players,
however you're allowed to vote only on the websites you wish to vote, and once you're done just click 'Redeem', but the benefit of voting on all new servers is that you'll gain 4 extra points in matter of 30 seconds or so, before you had to wait 12 hours to gain up to 6 points.
Play time requirement to receive participation points for voting was reduced to 5 hours rather than 24.
Now players will gain 35 Participation Points for every site that was voted, resulting in a total of 210 points for all sites.
The chances of Activity Collection for voting chances were increased.
Bonesack will now be available on Ironman voting store, and premium ticket price was slightly increased.
Bloodveld Youngling pet was added to voting store, it's untradable!
The item prices were adjusted, however they may suffer a new readjust soon, we'll be leaving them with a discount for a limited time.
Ironman no longer will require play-time in order to receive participation points for voting.
Antifire potions and Super antifire potions effect were added to the game.
Antifire portion: Will protect player by 50% against Dragon's breath damage (Stacks with Dragonfire shield becoming 100% protection).
Super antifire potion: Will protect player by 100% against Dragon's breath damage.
The potion effect will last for 6 minutes.
A warning will inform when the effect is about to run out.
Antifire Potion: Lantadyme potion(unf) + Dragon scale dust
Tip: To obtain a Dragon scale dust you should use a Blue dragon scale with a Pestle and mortar
Super antifire potion: Antifire potion + Phoenix feather
In order to obtain Phoenix Feathers you must grab the feathers from Desert Phoenix located at east of Shantay Pass
There's a Premium Feature that allows players to store Phoenix Feathers into BoB (Familiars)
Frost dragons are finished, however it's in a Beta mode, so we're only allowing in only the players who have voted in the last 12 hours, for now there's no other requirement, but this may change in the future.
Important Drops: "Frostdragon Bones", "Frostdragon pet", "Draconic visage";
There are two ways to reach Frost Dragons dungeon, however I guess most of you will use only the short way.
First method is walking to south of Port Sarim till reach a trapdoor
Or you could just teleport to "Asgarnian dungeon" from 'Combat Training Teleport'.
Once you're inside the dungeon, you can follow this route:
Be aware that Frost Dragons are quite strong.
Once the Frost Dragon attack a player, it will decide which attack type will use and will stick to this attack type.
Frost dragons are added to NPC kill tracker.
Frost Dragons can deal serious damage if you don't have Antifire protection.
Only Super donators will be able to hold up to 25 Frost Dragon bones inside a Bonesack.
The limit will be expanded by 25 or 12 from Voting Streak points.
The Dragon may enable a Deflection ability which will be rendered over it, the deflect ability will reflect 100% of ANY damage that you deal on it.
Frost Dragon Pets
The Bone chooser interface was reworked to support better expanding and inform limit of stored bones.
A few changes on Weapon Game were applied to make the mechanics similar to what used to be.
Weapon Game shops were adjusted to result in a better necessities x comfort balance.
All basic bolts|arrows are now 1 coin, meaning that you can pretty much buy as many as you want, you will not end up running out on ammo.
You can also perform unlimited Buy X at Weapon Game store
Ranged class will receive 200K coins when entering the arena, having in mind that players are allowed to buy:
15 Manta rays - 50K
1 Prayer Potion + 1 Range potion - 50k
5k+ of bolts - 5k
Up to 45 Enchanted bolts - 45K
Melee class will receive 100K coins when entering the arena, having in mind that players are allowed to buy:
1 - Prayer Potion + 1 Attack potion + 1 Strength potion - 50K
15 Manta Rays - 50K
There're coins enough to have basic and spend a little on extra things such as enchanted bolts and potions that just became available for sale after shop update, you could choose to spend more on food and less on potions, etc.
When entering in the Weapon Game you must await 15 seconds inside safe box.
You can now only get items from store after you die or re-enter the arena.
Meaning that you can still have more variety of items like enchanted bolts but the restriction to get resources after dying only will be like used to be.
You no longer can come back to safe house after leaving, like used to be.
You no longer can obtain items from shop before respawn (Die)
You can still get food from stone Dispenser every few minutes as usual.
You no longer will receive coins per kill since it's no longer necessary as you only may use the shop after die or enter the arena, rendering it useless.
Players connected from the same host will not receive any reward for killing each-other.
There will be now only 1 Weapon Game store containing all items of both old stores, ordered by prices.
Two new items were added at Weapon Game rewards shop: Dominion Swords and Dominion Crossbow.
In order to purchase the item you must have at least level 200 Weapon Game level in that respective item class.
The item is degradable and may last around 30 minutes in combat.
A new storage system to work in parallel with our usual system was created, it will allow MUCH more dynamic content developing and content storage, also a faster data transfer, however it's beta and should be tested under stress of world 1.
Degrading system + Dominion Swords | Crossbows
The new Storage System allowed to create a degrading system, it's not the final Degrading system that we planned but it's a good start.
We will be testing the degrading system with Dominion Swords and Crossbows that are obtained from Weapon Game for 25 points.
Dominion Sword | Crossbow
The Dominion Swords will be stronger than a Vine Whip, there's no wielding requirements for now and will last 30 minutes in combat, however it can ONLY be used against monsters.
The sword potential will increase a lot based on Player Strength, that way it will benefit even those who can wield Vine Whips.
The Dominion Crossbow is stronger than Chaotic Crossbow as the bow itself contains range bonus that will accumulate with ammo bonus, it will degrade after around 30 minutes in combat.
Many mores smileys are available now.
Ignored players will now appear as orange in the minimap.
Players will no longer see the following ignored players' messages: "Shout", "Clan Message", "Clan Private Message"
A few things in the combat system were modified, max hit formula was improved and now it's more reliable and predictable, allowing to adjust better hits as we want them to be.
A few other things in the background were improved.
Now all experience obtained while XP is locked will be counted.
You can check your progress on the Points check interface
It's ranked in Top Scores as well
More skilling messages are now filter-able.
Infernal mage got drop table improved, it will now drop: "Beginner wand", "Aprentice wand", "Teacher wand", "Master wand", "Mage's book", "Ancient staff"
You will now be able to mix potions with full inventory.
Avatars are now aggressive as used to be.
Loooots of missing maps were added and maps without object were fixed.
Now only fight pits winners will get the item rewards.
Shantay pass bank chest will now work.
Hint icon will be removed once a barrow brother is killed.
Mutant tarn and Commander Ziliana kills will now be announced.
Added support for 'red block' icon at stores to indicate whether an item can be purchased or not.
Black Dragons are now listed in the NPC kill tracker (Blue and Green will not be added, due the amount of different IDs)
A bank chest was added to outside area of Neitznot bank.
Summoning obelisk and a prayer altar was added to Donator Zone 2
Since many things have changed and we're using a new storage engine things may become unstable at first moment, but please have patience, any issue may be quickly solved.
Thank you all for reading and have a great week!
