Different levels of clue scrolls
Zenyte will offer six different levels of clues scrolls (beginner/easy/medium/hard/elite/master). The higher level ones being more difficult to complete. Players will be able to stack different difficulty clue scrolls boxes. Clues will be obtained by randomly killing monsters, implings or skilling (fishing/woodcutting/mining). Also voting will reward you with a random clue scroll box (3 votes = 1 random clue scroll box).
Obtaining clue scrolls
There are multiple ways of obtaining clue scrolls on Zenyte.
Clue scroll drops:
~375 monsters currently drop various clue scrolls.
Chambers of Xeric have a 1/12 chance of dropping an elite clue scroll.
Barrows has a 1/200 chance of dropping the elite clue scroll per barrows brother slain.
The stone chest in the lizardman temple has a 1/100 chance of dropping the medium clue scroll.
The rogue chest has a 1/99 chance of dropping the hard clue scroll.
The H.A.M members have a 1/50 chance of giving easy clue scrolls when pickpocketed.
Clue bottles, geodes and nests can be obtained with OSRS rates and opened to receive the clue box.
Clue scroll steps
Each difficulty clue scroll will have certain step amount:
Beginner clues - 1 to 3 steps
Easy clues - 2 to 4 steps
Medium clues - 3 to 5 steps
Hard clues - 4 to 6 steps
Elite clues - 5 to 7 steps
Master clues - 6 to 8 steps
Zenyte has most of the clue steps implemented, which includes:
Some anagrams come with an additional challenge, such as answering a question, completing a puzzle or completing a light box.
Cipher clues all require you to either answer a question, or complete a puzzle.
The elite coordinate clues will require the player to kill either a Bandosian or and Armadylean guardian before progressing.
The master coordinate clues will require the player to kill three Ancient wizards if they're in multi, or a Brassican mage.
Cryptic clues will require the player to search an object, to talk to a specific NPC, to kill a monster, complete some sort of a challenge a NPC asks them or to find a key and open the object locked behind the key.
Emote clues have various requirements regarding worn items; the player may be asked to wear specific items, sets, or wear nothing at all. The emote(s) must be done in the specified area, often a house or other structure.
Medium emote clues will require the player to perform two emotes.
Hard and master emote clues always require the player to defeat double agents before progressing further.
Map clues never require the player to kill anything, only to dig at where the treasure is found.
The master hot/cold clues always require the player to defeat three Ancient wizards, or a Brassican mage, depending on whether the player is inside a multi zone or not.
Music clues require you to play a song in Falador park, on the bridge, to Cecilia. You need to have said music tracks unlocked beforehand.
Triple cryptic clues:
All implemented and functional, triple cryptic clues only appear in master clue scrolls. All three steps must be completed in order to progress further with the clue scroll.
Fully implemented and completely random patterns.
Puzzle boxes can always be solved, the way they're randomized is by starting with a complete puzzle and running a random number of valid steps on it until it is scrambled, meaning it 100% is always doable.
All but three STASH units implemented(three unavailable due to inaccessible items or areas) until construction is released, STASH units will require respective crafting levels and give crafting experience. When construction releases, the skill will simply by swapped out to construction. Experience gained from STASH units before construction will remain in crafting and won't carry over to construction.
The Mimic is a boss who can be fought by presenting a mimic casket to the strange casket found upstairs in Watson's house. Mimics can be obtained from an elite or master reward casket. The elite reward casket has a 1/35 chance of being a mimic, while master reward caskets have a 1/15 chance.
The fight with the Mimic is instanced; if the player dies during the fight, lost items will be kept by the strange casket and can be reclaimed for 90,000 coins.
Players have six chances to kill The Mimic from a master clue, five from an elite clue, which corresponds to the item rolls from the obtained casket. Every time a player leaves or dies, the amount of rolls on the drop table is decreased by one. If a player fails every attempt, they will not receive any loot from the original clue scroll.
Clue scroll rewards
Clue rewards have been implemented in full:
The reward caskets are stackable and can be opened in masses.
All clue scroll rewards have been implemented from all tiers.
The rewards obtained through treasure trails are tracked by the collection log.
All items can be worn, have proper bonuses and requirements.
Clue scroll milestone rewards (Large spade, Clueless scroll, Uri transform, Heavy casket and Scroll sack) are implemented and are available after completing a clue scroll with the necessary milestone count.
Implings and Puro-Puro
From now on implings will spawn globally and players will be able to catch them around the map, all of their loot tables are 1:1 to OSRS.
Global impling spawns implemented, which are randomly assigned traits (rare spawn, invisible spawn) at server startup so they change often. There are roughly half the implings ingame at all times based on the amount of possible spawn locations. Implings despawn after ~15 minutes after appearing.
Bare-handed impling catching
Puro-Puro is an area that contains 11 types of implings that can be caught by players. Jar generator and Magic butterfly net were implemented with the addition of Puro-Puro.
A new agility area called Agility Pyramid will be accessible. On this course players start at the bottom of a pyramid with the goal of reaching the top, where they are able to collect the pyramid top. Before reaching the top, players will have to successfully traverse each of the five layers of the pyramid.
Players with an agility level of 30 or higher can head over to the Agility Pyramid near Nardah to get started.
Most obstacles of the course have a chance of failure so food is suggested for those with lower agility level (30s~60s).
After reaching the top of the pyramid, players can retrieve a pyramid top which can be given to Simon Templeton for 25,000 coins each.
Skotizo is a demonic boss located beneath the Catacombs of Kourend. Accessing its lair requires the use of a dark totem on the altar found in the centre of the Catacombs, one dark totem permits only one attempt.
If the player dies in Skotizo's area, there is absolutely no way to retrieve items lost on death! Should the player need to leave, they can either teleport out or use one of the four portals in the corners of the boss chamber.
Skotizo can be substituted for both Black demon and Greater demon kills during Slayer tasks.
Chompy bird hunting
Chompy birds can now be killed for a chance of Chompy chick pet and Chompy bird hats.
Bloated toads must be used as bait to catch them. Bloated toads can be sucked up with Ogre bellows by the nearby swamp.
When a Chompy dies, it will give you a corpse, which you can pluck to gain feathers. Doing this will also place a Raw chompy and some bones on the ground. A Chompy bird will escape after one minute if you fail to kill it.
Players can talk to Rantz to buy an ogre bow and receive a free ogre bellows to begin chompy hunting.
Chompy chick has a 1/500 chance of dropping from chompy birds for those who have completed the elite Western Provinces diary.
Chompy bird hats can be claimed from Rantz after bringing him an ogre bow and getting enough chompy bird kills.
Players can now use kraken tentacles on Lieve McCracken which she will permanently hold onto.
For every 10 kraken tentacles, a player can use an uncharged trident on Lieve, and receive an enhanced variant in replacement.

Whenever a player opens a pet mystery box, they will receive a pet (from the list above) they do not currently own, assuming they're missing at least one pet from the selection. If the player possesses all the pets, they will be unable to open the box. The box contains a variety of pets, all of which have the same rarity except for the dragons. The pet dragons have a much lower chance of being received from the box, however if all other pets have been redeemed, the box has no choice but to give you the missing dragons.
New Discord commands (::log, ::stats, ::poll)
The graceful dyes can be bought from the vote shop for 5 vote points each. One dye can recolour one graceful piece. The default unlocked colour selection consists of all but white and dark blue.

Any existing helmets and toxic staves of the dead on the live game will currently not be upscaled and people - even those who have 100% charged in them before the update - will end up with just a fraction of that after this update. It is too difficult to upscale it for existing users, far too prone to errors. You can just fill the items up again after the update and only then - will they be at full charges.

Ferocious gloves can now be reverted at the Lithkren machine.

It now properly re-adjusts the cycle time to ensure that it's always a 600ms interval.
Examining asleep version of Vorkath now shows proper drops on it.
