  2. Name: Matt Age: 26 Location: Illinois Brief Introduction: I am not as cool as some of the other Staff Members as you will come to read about however the most exciting thing in my life is my daughter! Her name is Averie and she is a 2 year old stinker!! As far as a career over the years I have held titles in Customer Services to Law Enforcement. People who are unfortunate enough to cross my path tend to say I a man of all trades. When did you join the Staff Team and what made you chose to join it? I joined the Staff Team on April 25th, 2020 - I met a former staff member by the name of @Sir Hassan who I have an enormous amount of respect for and he complimented my knowledge of OSRS and hinted that I should apply for the Staff Team. I initially was not interested however the one passion in my life that I have that outweighs most of my hobbies is the want to help people. I decided that this would allow me to kill two birds with one stone. This is one of the best decisions I made. I have met a lot of wonderful people along the way and if I could do it all over again I would make the same choice. What do you enjoy the most about Zenyte? I have a unique position as one of the owners of this community because I have the opportunity to put a smile on our players abroad. People who knew me before my position as the Community Manager (Server Support, Moderator or Forums Moderator) will agree that I have always been striving to make the player experience the number one priority to Zenyte before anything else. I do not consider my responsibilities as a job but instead like I said in my reasons for joining more of a passion. A simple answer to this question would be the thing I enjoy most about Zenyte is the positive interactions and outcomes we make in our player's lives. Media and Entertainment:
  3. Hello Community Members, The 2021 Halloween Event will take place for about two weeks and you can start this event by talking to the Halloween Guide at home. He will inform you that two individuals in our community require assistance! The Grave digger The Grave Digger will require your assistance in the Lumbridge Graveyard! He claims to have misplaced somethings... Perhaps if you help him find his missing items he will reward you! The Sad Boy There is a "Sad Boy" in Canfis who will require your assistance with trick-or-treating! Will you be able to help him? The people in the area will take notice of what you're wearing. In other news.. The Management and Development Team is excited to announce that there will be a patch coming to the Theatre of Blood beta world that will fix many issues with the current reported bugs. We will also be releasing some other content for Halloween throughout the month of October! We also have in store some event, donator and vote specific items! Management Changes.. @Yamato69has also departed from the Management Team after his lengthy service as Staff Member. He has shown extreme dedication toward our community and will be big shoes to fill. We wish him the best of luck with his future endeavors. @Itzcnote100 will be stepping into a full-time community manager role as we do not plan to backfill the position. I believe in his leadership capabilities and have no doubt he will continue to be a successful and profession community manager. @Grant will also be joining the Management Team as a full-fledged developer and will be taking on the position of Head of Development.
  4. Double Drop System Creator(s): Matt (Gepan), Grant (Lucid) Creation Date: 10/09/2021 The double drop system allows for a automated way for double drops to be introduced into the server. The system has a set of checks and balances in place to prevent duplication outside a set realm amount. The functionality for the administration to add and remove double drops and the community to check a array of current drops being doubled has been implemented. ::checkdd is the command assigned to open up the journal allowing for the double drop manager to be presented to the community as shown below: We have also introduced dialog into the came allowing players to obtain notification of a double drop an example is as followed:
  5. October 2021 - Double Drops Good Evening, In celebration of the Theatre of Blood nearing the final touches on Phase I of the beta-testing and the overwhelming support from the community by our continued growth I have decided to provide a weekend full of double drops to introduce more gear into the economy This will both benefit both new players and our veterans as we prepare for some new high-end PVP content. We have also decided we would automate the system by taking out the required administration factor of needing to pass out the drops. You will now obtain the drops automatically as a drop. The following items will be dropped as double this weekend: Seers Ring Archers Ring Warrior Ring Berserker Ring Mud Battlestaff Steam Battlestaff Dragon Axe Spirit Shield Holy Elixir Spectral Sigil Arcane Sigil Elysian Sigil Seercull Abyssal Whip Abyssal Dagger Black Mask (10) Dragon Pickaxe Tyrannical Ring Dragon 2H Sword Malediction Shards Odium Shards Treasonous Ring Ring of the Gods Primordial Crystal Pegasian Crystal Eternal Crystal Smouldering Stone Bandos Chestplate Bandos Tassets Bandos Boots Armadyl Helmet Armadyl Chestplate Armadyl Plateskirt Armadyl Crossbow Zamorakian Spear Staff of the Dead Trident of the Seas (Full) Kraken Tentacle Tanzanite Fang Magic Fang Serpentine Visage Other Changes: - You will now be able to collect clue scroll boxes automatically if you have a ring of wealth equipped. - The "Grant" Banhammer has been added. - Use command ::checkdd to see which item drops are being doubled!
  6. News Blog: October 2021 Hello Community Members, The month of October is planned to be packed full of content and changes focused on perfecting and expanding the server. We had the opportunity at the end of September to welcome @Grantinto the Staff Team as a member of our Development Team and he has done a fabulous job not only by digging into the code but being an advocate and voice for the players of our community. Grant and I have similar personalities and work ethic with this combination we have been able to complete multiple projects in a timely manner Since the announcement of his onboarding we have successfully implemented three game updates and pushed the Theatre of Blood to it's initial beta phasing stage. I wanted to also give some special recognition to the members of the Staff Team who dedicate and volunteer time doing tasks such as but not limited to bug reports, administrative duties, spreadsheets, account resets, and donation requests, server events, forums maintenance this success would not be possible without each and every one of you. I will now take a few minutes to recap on some of the plans being put into motion behind the scenes: Theatre of Blood The Theatre of Blood has been launched into Theatre of Blood Beta Phase I. This will consist of all of the bosses excluding the final boss and should provide us with some insight on a official release date. We have no set timeline on the completion of Phase I however we do plan to release Theatre of Blood by the end of October if we do not come across any major roadblocks. If you would like to join the QA Team (Beta Team) for the testing of Theatre of Blood please contact @Grant - @Itzcnote100 - @Yamato69 we will not require an application. Update snippets for the Theatre of Blood are available in the #tob-snippets channel on our official discord. Halloween Event The Development Team and Management Team would like to release a Halloween 2021 Event. We had some storylines and ideas in mind but if you would like to participate in the creation of a Halloween Event please reach out to @Gepan Slayer Helmet Ornament Kit Do you remember when you completed all of those kills at the Kalphite Queen or the King Black Dragon and you was able to obtain that Kalphite Queen head or those King Black Dragon heads? Congratulations! However the Development Team does not believe you sacrificed enough.. You will now have to battle those same bosses but instead of their head... You want the ornament kit they will drop. A "Bloody Month" of goodies!! As Grant is tasked with the creation and perfection of the Theatre of Blood I will be working on some smaller projects such as but not limited to Bloodbark Armours, Swampbark Armours, and potentially the Amulet of Blood Fury! We will be releasing the Bloodbark and Swampbark armours with the standard creation method however the bonuses will be unique to Zenyte giving some reductions in rune costing when worn! Head(s) of Community Management The Community Management Team will be able to assist you with any general inquires if you are not able to reach Grant or Gepan. They are extremely trusted individuals and are the face of the Management Team. They have full authority to assist and make decisions that directly reflect the customer service aspect of our game. @Itzcnote100 - If you have any inquiries about donations or require management assistance! @Yamato69- if you have any inquires about a punish or require management assistance! Thank you! The Staff Team would like to say thank you to members of our community for their support! I understand that this battle over the last year has been extremely long and tiresome however we are finally to a point that the curve is starting to turn. We plan to focus a lot of our resources toward advertising and hopefully we can start leading into a new direction! Sincerely,
  7. October 2021 - Amethyst darts and Demonic ashes Amethyst dartsYou will now have the ability to create Amethyst darts by using combining Amethyst dart tips with feathers. In order to obtain Amethyst dart tips you will need to use a chisel on a chunk of Amethyst. The darts will provide a +28 strength bonus and may be used inside of the toxic blowpipe. Demonic AshesDemonic monsters and mobs will now drop demonic ashes they will be branched into five tiers and give experience based upon the tier. This will work in a similar fashion as bones for example a low tier may be wolf bones and a higher tier would be dragon bones. Demonic ashes would then in retrospect have fiendish ashes in the low tier and abyssal demons in a higher tier. If you would like a general list of monsters or npcs that will drop demonic ashes please view this article on the wiki. Currently you will be able to scatter the ashes which will follow the mechanic of burying bones by providing you with prayer experience or you can offer the ashes on a altar like bones and be provided with bonus prayer experience. Ash sanctifier The ash sanctifier will allow for the automatic scattering of the ashes similar to the bone crusher with bones. We will not be releasing the official way to obtain this item until release of the update. Xeric's Wisdom Changes You will now be provided with a bonus above the 25% based upon your donator status as followed: None - 25% total (only using wisdom without being a donator) Sapphire - 27% total Emerald - 30% total Ruby - 33% total Diamond - 36% total Dragonstone - 40% total Onyx - 45% total Zenyte - 50% total Dwarf Multicannon changes (Donator Perks) Donators will now have an increased capacity of cannonballs for their dwarf multicannon. None - 30 Sapphire - 40 Emerald - 50 Ruby - 60 Diamond - 70 Dragonstone - 80 Onyx - 90 Zenyte - 100 Clue Casket changes (Donator Perks) Donators now have a chance to find a second clue casket inside of a clue casket when opening it. The following formula will be followed: None - Sapphire - 3% Emerald - 6% Ruby - 9% Diamond - 12% Dragonstone - 15% Onyx - 18% Zenyte - 21% Barrows reward changes (Donator Perks) Ruby and Onyx donators now have the ability to obtain double and triple loot. If the double or triple loot consists of a item your item will be re-rolled for example instead of two Guthan spears you will get a Guthan spear and another barrows item. The following formula will be followed: Ruby< - 20% chance at DOUBLE LOOT Onyx< - 10% chance at TRIPLE LOOT Small changes: - Desert camp door now functions correctly with the key. - You will now have the ability to cook curry. - The slayer ring provides the correct dialog. - Ape Atoll ladder now takes you to the correct location inside the middle of the air. - Vet'ion drop table has been corrected with clue scrolls. - Bandits now have correct thieving requirement.

  11. Community Poll - Theatre of Blood - Death Mechanics Hello Community, The Development Team and Management Team have been in deep in discussions about the Theatre of Blood and we have decided to reach out to the community on their opinions on the death mechanics. We are looking into three different avenues and we would like your opinion on which one you think best fits Zenyte. 1.) The death mechanics should follow the death mechanics of OSRS and Hardcore Ironman should lose their status upon a full death. 2.) The death mechanics should be altered because we are a RSPS and follow a path similar to RAIDS I (COX) allowing for safe deaths and the ability to continue on with your raid upon death however your chances for a higher tier reward will be less. 3.) The death mechanics should be altered because we are a RSPS as said above in 2.) however there will be a gold sink added such as a fee of 750k to conduct a TOB raid. Thank you,
