Update log 18/10/2019 - Chambers of Xeric, Combat Changes. Gambling, Bugfixes

Recommended Posts



The Zenyte Team is pleased to announce the long awaited release of the Chambers of Xeric!

The Chambers of Xeric are a large cave system underneath Mount Quidamortem in the Kebos region. This comes with a full, 100% Old School RuneScape replicate of the Chambers of Xeric, with every detail nitpicked for accuracy and stability. We have implemented every aspect of every room, including challenge mode, proper dungeon scaling based on the party members stats, and even the proper point scaling system.

In Zenyte, the Chambers of Xeric use Dynamic Map Generation. This system is unique to the RSPS community, who mostly use preset map patterns when generating raid rooms. 

What does this mean for me?
Dynamic Map Generation means that every raid you embark on will be different from the last. Each time you form a group, the order of the rooms will be dynamically generated so that each raid is challenging, unique, and most importantly, 1:1 with OSRS.

In the Chambers of Xeric, you can expect to see:

  • Tekton
  • Vespula
  • Vanguard
  • Ice Demon
  • Muttadiles
  • Vasa Nistirio
  • Skeletal mystics
  • Lizardman shamans
  • Great Olm (final boss)
  • Resource Areas
  • Crab Puzzle
  • Creature Keeper
  • Tightrope
  • Guardians
  • Buildable Storage Units
  • Accurate point system

Below you will see each and all bosses with a short explanation of the mechanics that were implemented.


  • Tekton will return to his anvil when players are not attacking it.
  • Both emitted lights are added, red & orange with proper effects.
  • Meteor strike during his anvil regeneration will occur.
  • All of Tektons’ standard attacks have been implemented.


  • Grubs have to be healed. If they hit 0 hit points, they will emit a vespine soldier.
  • Vespula’s second phase is active once Vespula reaches 20% hit points.
  • The septic tentacles will spawn near the entrance, dealing moderate poison damage (Does not cause poison) passing it once the fight starts.


  • All three combat styles of Vanguards are properly added, and weakened by its proper counterpart.
  • Vanguards healing mechanic is in effect when one is pushed under 33% hit points while the rest remain above the threshold.
  • Vanguards have their proper rotation patterns.
  • The range Vanguard is weak to Melee attacks and can be identified by the rocks gathered beneath its tentacles.
  • The melee Vanguard is weak to Magic attacks and can be identified by the tentacles raised up in front of it.
  • The mage Vanguard is weak to Ranged attacks and can be identified by lack of tentacles.

Ice Demon

  • Ice fiends are capped at four. 1 per player in the party.
  • All braziers speed up the ice storm time while lit, time required to be lit based on party size.
  • Both ranged and magic attacks are implemented based on prayer active, dependent on the player it is attacking. 
  • Kindling is able to be chopped, hatchets have been placed in the proper spawn areas.
  • Storage chest is able to be built using planks. (No construction experience is gained)


  • Both muttadiles have been added. 
  • The small muttadile uses ranged and melee based attacks.
  • The large muttadile uses all three combat styles.
  • The large muttadile, under 40% hit points will go towards the meat tree, healing off of it. 3 times before returning, and will continue to heal based off of his 40% hitpoint threshold.
  • Chopping the tree down will prevent the muttadile from healing from it once the 40% hitpoint threshold is met.

Vasa Nistirio

  • Beginning attack & teleportation movement to lower players hit points added.
  • Proper movement of Vasa to the crystals & Vasa will heal off of the crystals.
  • Player health dealt is reduced the lower the players health is.
  • Lighting of crystals to indicate where Vasa is moving to.
  • If the crystal is not killed Vasa will return to the center of the room and begin using its teleport attack.

Great Olm

  • All three phases + Olm’s Head has been added.
  • Third phase requires both hands to be slain, simultaneously, otherwise they will heal.
  • All of Olms attacks have been added
    • Standard attacks
    • Spheres
    • Crystal burst
    • Lightning
    • Swap
    • Acid Spray & Acid Drip
    • Deep Burn & Fire wall
    • Crystal Bombs & Falling Crystals

  • All supplies necessary to make potions are accessible inside the chambers.
  • Pick all options functional.

Accurate point system

  • Attacking monsters, though there are several exceptions:
    • Penultimate phase of the Great Olm; anytime it regains control of its hands, no points are given for any damage dealt to them.
    • Damaging a recovered abyssal portal.
    • When players battle mini-bosses, a "decay" point multiplier is put into effect. For example, players initially have a normal multiplier rate when disabling  Vasa Nistirio's crystals, but as the fight progresses, the "decay" will set in and prevent players from obtaining as much points as they normally would.
  • Completing puzzle rooms.
  • Making shortcuts in large ruin chambers (requiring Woodcutting, Mining and Strength if the obstacle is a rotten sapling, rock or boulder respectively).

Huge shoutout goes to@Loeap
He has helped a tremendous amount during the testing phases to make sure the content here has been accurate, and all aspects work properly, just like Oldschool Runescape. This will not go unrecognized. 
If you see him on our site, discord, or in-game. Give him a big thanks for all the hard work for making The Chambers of Xeric what it is today.



Update Log

In addition to the grand release of the Chambers of Xeric, there are several game fixes, new implementations, and tweaks done in this update.
Curious to know what's been added? Here's a full compiled list:

  • Notable updates:
    • Implemented most silver jewelry, bracelet of slaughter, dodgy necklace, expeditious bracelet, amulet of bounty, amulet of chemistry.
    • Infernal eels can now be fished at Mor Ul Rek, oily fishing rod is obtainable in the skilling shop at home.
    • Royal seed pod can now be configured to teleport you home, this is a hard wilderness dairy reward.
    • Basalt and salt runes can now be mined underneath Weiss, these can be used to make icy and stony basalt, as well as used to light fire pits.
    • The Moss giant boss Bryophyta is now killable and the signature weapon Bryophyta's staff is now fully implemented.
    • Soul bearer can now be found in the vote shop.
    • Combat dummies can now be found at the outlaws, slightly south-east of home.
    • Magic and range tutors now have option to toggle whether or not they want runes/ammunition to go into their rune pouch/equipment slot respectively.
    • Fake experience drops are now enabled for those with 200m and iron men in player vs player.
    • Dagannoth kings boss teleport scroll will now unlock a teleport directly to the entrance.
  • Combat changes:
    • Diagonal safespots implemented.
    • Flinching mechanic implemented.
    • Magic attack speed no longer depends on your distance; it will not slow the attacks down if you enter "long-range" distance(> 8 tiles)
    • Powered staves(tridents effectively) have had their attack range reduced to 7/9 tiles, as opposed to what wikia provides at 8/10(which is incorrect, confirmed)
    • Magic attack distance in general lowered for everything by 1 tile. The calculations previously actually provided 11 tiles attack distance, due to not properly accounting for positions, but rather only the space between the two.
    • Protection prayers are now checked when the hit begins, not when it lands on you.
    • Some alterations to damage calculations for player combat actions.
    • Hugging objects functions once again; Meaning if you're standing behind a rock and hitting someone that requires you to only walk 1 tile further, the attack will begin simultaneously with you walking, as opposed to waiting for you to walk to a tile that has clear view, and performing the attack on the next tick. The only exception(yet to implement) to this is autocasting, although this does not include powered staves.
    • Halberds can now hit through see-through objects such as fences, much like in Old School RuneScape. Previously they could only hit from distance if the path was completely clear and could be walked across.
    • Projectiles for ranged now fly out properly in synchronization with the player's positioning, instead of shooting them too soon, or too late(depending on whether or not the animation played actually blocks player's movement graphically)
  • Player-following rework:
    • First click of 'Follow' on another player will use intelligent pathfinding to reach the target, any subsequent calls - or interruptions through target movement - will result in using the dumb pathfinder.
    • Executed in a separate processing block, meaning PID no longer plays a role in following, instead the distance from the target will always be the same, whether player A follows player B, or vice versa.
    • Game will always attempt to walk you directly behind the other player, whether it is diagonal or not.
  • Public ground items limit introduced; There can now only be a maximum of 129 public ground items in one zone/chunk(8x8 tiles map piece); The limit has been verified to be 129 in OSRS. Once the limit is reached, it will remove the cheapest item out of the lot.
  • Player message filtering system rewritten; All messages were changed to be unfilterable, followed by me going over every skill action I could think of and filtering out logical messages.
  • Controller system removed almost entirely, I believe there's only construction remaining that is blocking it from being completely removed.
  • Gambling introduction: 
    • Dicing - players can purchase the dice bag from the store for $100. Allows players to roll the percentile dice privately, or in clan channel.9fb992e5ce.gif
    • Mithril seeds - can be bought off the store for credits. Players can plant the seeds to grow various colours of flowers.
      • 2 seed -  $0.10 (1 credit)
      • 100 seeds - $4.00  (40 credits)
      • 200 seeds - $7.50  (75 credits)
      • 425 seeds - $15.00  (150 credits)
      • 1000 seeds - $30.00  (300 credits)
  • Bugfixes (there are lots more, however after more than 500 commits being done on the develop branch, it is hard to keep track of it all)
    • Donator benefits for 'farming patches automatically composted' is now fixed for people who already previously interacted with a farming patch.
    • Zulrah no longer deals damage to the player after the player is dead and respawned.
    • Disabling a clan chat now properly kicks everyone out of it, including the owner themselves.
    • Mithril dragon drops shouldn't glitch out every now and again.
    • TzTok-Jad kills are now tracked.
    • Fire capes, bottomless buckets, anima seeds and void pieces are now tracked by collection log.
    • If an ironman deals the most damage to a NPC, but falls under the 70% damage dealt requirement, the drop is instead given to a non-ironman player who has dealt the most damage to the NPC, even if it is just 1 damage.
    • Vorkath's ice barrage attack is now smoother and easier to track. The crawler's behaviour has been improved to give a better window for reaction.
    • Herb box will automatically open all herb boxes with a two-tick interval if the 'Bank-all' option is used.
    • Players can no longer sell stackable items to a shop when their inventory is completely full and they have no coins in inventory.
    • Trident of the seas becomes tradeable when fully charged.
    • Cannon no longer freezes with one cannonball in it under specific circumstances.
    • Armadylean spiritual mage actually attacks players, instead of just following them.
    • Wilderness obelisk destinations are now sorted from lowest to higher wilderness level.
    • Boss assignment name checking now ignores case-sensitivity, ensuring that no more boss tasks will be affected by this, thus making them unable to be completed.
    • Spirit trees in farming now require ground suqah tooth, as opposed to the non-ground version.
    • Cosmic being and star flowers added in Cosmic Plane(can be visited through fairy ring). Allows players to obtain star flowers which are used in brewing magic essence potions.
    • Players can no longer get stuck on the Al-Kharid zip-line obstacle.
    • A tool leprechaun can now be found in Weiss.
    • Lizardman brutes now work for the lizardmen slayer assignment.
    • The ship next to the arrival location in Pest Control island no longer allows the player to go down on the ship, as the bottom part of it is completely unwalkable.
    • The gate used in Dwarf Cannon quest in RS, to reach Lawgof has been implemented.
    • All decorative armour now has the respective wield requirements.
    • Players can no longer get stuck on Bob's island, if the destination to which they would be returned is not walkable(e.g. if you were force-teleported by a staff member while crossing an agility obstacle), it would instead return you home.
    • The lamp obtained from completing Bob's island random event will now properly be dropped underneath the player's feet if their inventory is full.
    • Vorkath has been listed as a draconic NPC for the dragon-hunter weaponry effect.
    • Walk packet is now completely single-threaded, There was an extreme case where - very rarely - your walking would be interrupted out of the blue due to scenery changes that occurred immediately after path was calculated, but before the next tick was executed.
    • Players who are muted will now be notified of their mute on logins.
    • 'Floating'(non-full screen) world map will no longer close when you're in combat, or performing skilling actions. Full screen world map can no longer be opened while under combat, and getting attacked while having full screen open means the world map closes immediately - especially helping players on mobile, who are viewing world map in dangerous areas like the wilderness.
    • Adamant dragons now drop the dragon metal slice instead of the dragon metal lump.
    • Patched part of the dungeon exit object in Brimstail's cavern; Only half of the object would actually take you outside of the cave previously.
    • Increased the price of the mind shield to 25,000 coins in the melee armoury shop due to its better bonuses compared to the elemental shield, which costs 15,000.
    • Changed fairy ring code reading to use the cache instead of our hard-coded ring ids. A lot of the necessary fairy rings would not show up on the travel log before - all do now.
    • Humidify spell now works for the celastrus, redwood and dragonfruit seedlings.
    • Implemented a yell filter in the custom settings tab, so players can filter out everyone else's yells but their own - even staff members' yells.
    • Players who are in the 'locked' status are no longer immediately logged off as their connection drops - but instead will wait until either the lock wears off, or 60 seconds has passed. The method is merged with the combat check, so both variables will count towards the same thing.
    • Magic tutor in Lumbridge now allows players to toggle whether or not they want the runes they pick up to go in their rune pouch, or into their inventory. The runes can only go in the pouch if the player already has at least 1 of the said rune in their pouch, and the existing stack plus the stack on the ground doesn't exceed the limit of 16,000 runes.
    • Ranged tutor in Lumbridge now allows players to toggle whether or not they want the ammunition(arrows, thrown weapons..) to go in their ammunition equipment slot, or their inventory. The arrows will only go in their ammunition slot if they already have the same arrows in there, and the two stacks merged doesn't exceed the maximum item count limit.
    • Casting fire spells while wielding a tome of fire now consumes the tome's charges.
    • Increased the stock of garlic in Ardougne spice stall, as well as its respawn timer.
    • Using thrown weapons with enchanted bolts equipped no longer permits the bolt effects to go off.
    • Players can now fish infernal eels in the TzHaar city. They can also crack the eels for some spicy rewards.
    • A ladder in the tree gnome stronghold has been patched to allow climbing up and down on it.
    • Bryophyta's staff can now be charged with nature runes.
    • All max capes are now converted to 569,250 coins on death, if lost. The previous value was merely 99,000.
    • A ladder in the goblin village no longer allows players to no-clip around the world.
    • Undead cows and chickens now work for the zombies slayer assignment.
    • Penguins now work for the birds slayer assignment.
    • 'Enter the ranging guild' medium Kandarin diary achievement implemented.
    • Increased the number of cactus spines the players get from harvesting cacti.
    • Ice trolls will now fight against honour guards on the Neitiznot island.
    • Lizardman brutes will now fight against the soldiers in Lizardman canyon.
    • Experience drops implemented for if the player has reached 200 million experience in any skill - these experience drops will come with a red circle, indicating no experience was actually gained. These fake experience drops are also altered by the experience multiplier settings.
    • Experience multiplier settings now actually save on logout.
    • Dagannoths in the Waterbirth island dungeon now have drops.
    • Players can no longer acquire the same slayer assignment back-to-back unless they're wearing the slayer cape.
    • Lowered the aggression and attack range of the dark wizards in Draynor village.
    • Fixed the defensive animation on Arclight.
    • Fixed the attack animation on the Fremennik blade.
    • Fake experience drops implemented for ironmen who attack other players in the Wilderness - indicating no actual experience is gained, but at least it informs the player of the rough hit.
    • Fixed a shortcut in the Lumbridge basement.
    • Having a dwarf multicannon set-up within a Corporeal beast instance now prevents the instance from deleting when there are no more players remaining in the chamber. If the cannon decays when there is no one left in the room, the instance will delete itself.
    • Rewrote the drop tables of Kree'arra's minions - they all have identical drop tables now, and do drop feathers and bones every kill.
    • Rewrote the combat scripts of the brutal dragons to match RS - they will all now use proper projectiles, and attack from afar.
    • Jogres added into the dungeon on the nothern part of Karamja.
    • Fountain of Uhld can now be used to recharge dragonstone jewellery.
    • Lizardman kills are now being tracked, and can be seen by talking to any of the soldiers found in the Lizardman canyon settlement.
    • Players can now search the marshy jungle vines for snake weed.
    • TzTok-Jad slayer assignment fixed.
    • Rewrote the behaviour of Yt-HurKots(TzTok-Jad's healers) so that they will always heal TzTok-Jad when in reach of it.
    • The attack speed shown in Monster Examine spell's interface now displays the true attack speed. The values previously shown were off.
    • Ket-Zek and TzTok-Jad both roll using/against stab attack style when using their melee attacks, instead of previous crush.
    • NPC bonuses and max hits updated to match RS for the larger Tz-Keks.
    • Implemented necklace of faith's effect of occasionally restoring prayer if hitpoints reach critical levels.
    • Implemented bracelet of slaughter's effect of occasionally preventing your task count from decrementing on a slayer kill.
    • Implemented dodgy necklace's effect of occasionally preventing getting stunned while pickpocketing.
    • Implemented expeditious bracelet's effect of occasionally decreasing your assignment count by two instead of one on a slayer kill.
    • Implemented amulet of bounty's effect of occasionally allotment only using one seed as opposed to three when planting.
    • Implemented amulet of chemistry's effect occasionally of making four dose potions instead of the three dose versions.
    • Items found from mystery boxes are now tracked one the collection log.
    • Ring of pursuit, Flamtaer's bracelet and Efaritay's aid now have their check and break options implemented. The jewellery effects themselves couldn't be implemented due to missing the necessary underlying content.
    • The ovens found in the Hosidius kitchen now help towards not burning the food you cook.
    • Zahur and Wesley are now capable of crushing all crushable herblore secondaries, if the player can afford it. They will also accept the noted forms of the secondaries, if possible.
    • The shops will now buy items back from the players for 40% of their value(value is not defined by Grand Exchange, but rather by a constant value found in the item's definitions) - the percentage previously was just 33.334%.
    • West Ardougne's general store will now buy items at 55% of their value.
    • Bandit duty free general store in the Wilderness will now buy items at 60% of their value - identical to that of high alchemy.
    • Fixed a typo in Venenatis' combat script.
    • The damage tracked on characters across the world is now stored using the username of the player dealing the damage, meaning that the damage is preserved through logins. Previously all previously-dealt damage from before login was discarded, often making loot not appear at all when slaying a creature.
    • Leaf-bladed spear is now two-handed.
    • Graceful and amylase packs can now be sold back to Grace's shop.
    • Guard dogs no longer react to players stealing from stalls in Kourend.
    • Fixed the agility shortcut in Stronghold slayer dungeon.
    • Implemented the fruit stalls in Kourend.
    • The starter guide NPC in Edgeville now sells all three starter weapons for 200,000 coins each.
    • The starter weapons have received a graphical overhaul, and are a lot prettier now.
    • Implemented the combat dummies, regular and undead versions.
    • Reworked the south-eastern part of the home, removed the cow pen and added a house for the outlaws. In-front of the house, players can find the newly-implemented combat dummies. While in presence of the house of the outlaws, players will gradually recharge their prayer and special attack, meaning they can continuously test different weapons on the combat dummies without having to leave to recharge their special attack or prayer. The recharge aura only kicks in after the players have stood within the presence of the house for at least 30 seconds, and stops as soon as the player leaves it.
    • Karamja achievement diary lamp requirements and experience rewards reworked to match OldSchool.
    • Removed rat's paper drops from outlaws.
    • Implemented cadava berry and redberry bushes found in the southern part of Varrock.
    • Resurrect crops spell fixed.
    • Basalt and salt rocks underneath Weiss can now be mined.
    • Fire pits across the world can be constructed to prevent the area effects of specific areas. Until construction is released, the fire pits will have no requirements to build, and grant no construction experience. Each fire pit will however grant 300 firemaking experience(times whatever your experience modifier is set to).
    • Snowflake and Don't Know What now have their dialogues for noting basalt and passing through to the inner part of Weiss respectively.
    • Rewrote the binding necklace charges system. The charges are now bound to the player, as opposed to the item. Thus, any newly obtained binding necklace will now stack in bank. The old, non-stacking binding necklaces will still work too, but they will not become stackable - best off consuming those to save some bank space.
    • Only magic is now permitted within the boundaries of the Mage Arena in deep wilderness. This applies for both NPCs and players alike.
    • Mogres implemented. They can be found in the waters at Mudskipper point. Players need a fishing exposive to get their attention. Mogres can also be acquired as a slayer assignment from Mazchna, Vannaka and Chaeldar. Mogres can now also be found on the drop viewer - and they also drop flippers and mudskipper hat. Due to this, the mudskipper hat was removed from the mystery box - its value wasn't very high to begin with, due to them being extremely common from the boxes.
    • Implemented drops for the zombies found in stronghold of security.
    • Curtains all across the desert can now be opened and closed.
    • The ladder found within HAM hideout now actually takes the players outside of the hideout.
    • The standard rare drop tables, and gem rare drop tables were expanded to a lot more monsters - to see if a monster has access to it, you can now open the drop viewer to find out.
    • Remapped a lot of spawn positions of monsters found in the godwars dungeon, and in lumbridge swamp caves.
    • All items dropped(by player, or by Vorkath) within Vorkath's instance will now remain on the ground for a total of 30 minutes.
    • Rewrote the formula behind prayer resistance in prayer drain calculations, effectively doubling the resistance gained from prayer-boosting equipment. This now matches RS' formulae.
    • Ardougne rooftop course's mark of grace spawn locations reduced to just one.
    • Modified the revenant weapons' check-charges message to notify the player of the weapon being activated after the initial 1,000 revenant ether charge.
    • Implemented dagannoth kings boss teleport scroll.
    • The waterbirth island teleport has been moved to the misc category.
    • Rewrote the item sorting formula for items kept on death to include the base-price of the untradeable items which are built up off of tradeable counterparts, making items such as slayer helmet have a much higher base value(that of the black mask for example), so items such as barrows gloves no longer protect over it.
    • Added two cave nightshade item spawns near the Skavid caves, south-west of Yanille.
    • Patched the doors found in Kourend area.
    • Repaired a couple ladders on Neitiznot island, to prevent no-clipping.
    • Thormac, found at the top of the Sorcerer's tower is now able to enchant battlestaves to mystic versions.
    • Normal lava and steam battlestaves can now be equipped with respective upgrade kits.
    • Fixed an issue with Iban's staves not notifying the player of being on the wrong spellbook if that is the case.
    • Implemented the shortcut found at the northern part of McGrubor's woods.
    • Added a tanner on the second floor of Crafting guild.
    • The 'pump and drain' objects found world-wide can now be used for filling vessels with water.
    • Renamed the altar found upstairs at home to 'Saradomin altar' and changed it's right-click option of 'Change-spellbook' to actually list out all four spellbooks, for easier spellbook swapping.
    • Players no longer gain experience for damaging Bryophyta while the growthlings are alive.
    • Crash site cavern can now be accessed by walking from Tree Gnome Stronghold.
    • Zulrah's melee attack now does the knockback effect.
    • Plant pots made through pottery can now be used in Farming.
    • Increased the odds of your glory amulet being transformed into an eternal amulet of glory from 1 in 25,000 to merely 1 in 2,500, when recharging glories at the fountain of rune, in the wilderness.
    • All NPCs found in the fight caves now have their sound effects, making completion of the caves much easier.
    • Sped up the process of adding grapes to jugs of water to match OldSchool.
    • Amethyst no longer always depletes after the first ore is mined, instead, the odds of that happening have been changed to 1 in 3. Alongside this, amethyst rocks now have a much quicker respawn timer - three times faster than before. To adjust for these changes, the speed of mining amethyst has been slightly lowered.
    • Superior slayer monsters will now always drop a totem piece when killed within the Catacombs of Kourend, as long as the player is missing at least one of the pieces.
    • Superior slayer monsters can now be found on the drop viewer, although they will only show the totem pieces and the four rare drops which include the imbued heart on it.  The remaining drops cannot be displayed as they are dynamic, depending on the parent monster which "spawned" the superior version of itself. The loot is rolled off the parent monster, giving three individual rolls on their loot table.
    • Tortured gorilla's unique drop rates re-adjusted to match RS. They were never meant to be as low as they were previously set to - this was caused by random number generation when scrapping the wikia for drops.
    • Deviant spectres now use magic attack bonus when calculating the damage upon hitting a target, as opposed to previous melee defence. This makes them much more accurate, as their melee stats are 1.
    • Removed enhanced ice gloves from the vote store.
    • Implemented soul bearer, which can be found in the vote store for 50 vote points.
    • Modified some of the obstacles that have often caused the client to "teleport" players into unreachable parts of the map, or void entirely. Hopefully the modifications are enough to avoid these issues in the future.
    • Started working on placeholder redirections, so items such as barrows (25/50/75/100) would use the same placeholder slot as the full version of the item. At the moment, these placeholders have only been applies for barrows items, although the rest will follow in the near future.
    • Bracelets of ethereum always drop on the ground on death in wilderness.
    • Using the long-range attack style with tridents now properly provides the user with defence experience.
    • The "latest update" broadcast message players receive on login now only shows the first time around, although if players would like the last update to show on every login, they can change the setting in their settings tab respectively.
    • Guthix rest teas can now be made.
    • Trident damage calculations rewritten to properly account for all the special factors - previously it would disregard a lot of them.
    • Respective jingles are now played upon deaths, when progressing in fight caves, upon Grand Exchange offer updating, winning a duel and when playing the air guitar emote.
    • An oily fishing rod has been added to the skilling shop at home.
    • Bryophyta's growthlings will now once again die when a hatchet has been used on them, once they're low enough health.
    • Rangers' tights now require a ranged level of at least 40 to equip.
    • Smoke devil pet can now be metamorphised.
    • Added dagannoth kings teleport scroll to the mystery box.

Bugfixes as of 19/10/2019

  • Zulrah's incoming damage is no longer delayed ridiculously long.
  • Dark totem bases should no longer drop in double quantities from superior slayer monsters.
  • The Weiss fire pit should now properly save on logout - sorry for those who built it before the update. You will need to re-build it.
  • Skeletal wyvern no longer moon-walks away from the player when they try to attack it.
  • Godwars NPCs should be properly aggressive once again, and react to protection items as they should.
  • Barrows brothers will no longer aggressively attack players near the reward chest.
  • The 'swap' attack by the Great Olm now properly resets if one of the players in the pair has died or moved away.
  • Players who create a raiding party can now enter the dungeon to properly scout - meaning people with just 'Recruit' rank can start raids.
  • Raiding parties can no longer be created for the 'Zenyte' clan channel.
  • Granite cannonballs are now safely kept on death in wilderness if the player dies to a player, regardless of the wilderness level.
  • Amulet of chemistry dialogue options fixed.
  • Rare drops received from Chambers of Xeric are now properly tracked - those who got a drop before this update can ask me to enlist the item on their account's collection log.
  • Chambers of Xeric killcount can now be seen from the collection log interface - it combines both of them together, challenge mode and regular.
  • Drop viewer interface can now be properly searched again to find all the NPCs across the game.
  • Amethyst mining speed has been increased, following yesterday's massive decrease.
  • Players now lose 40% of their personal points on death in raid, as opposed to previous 60%.


Bugfixes as of 22/10/2019

  • The 'Swap' teleport attack by Olm now tries to pair as many people as possible and doesn't random-roll between the available pairs.
  • The Great Olm should no longer be skipping its special attacks sometimes, hopefully the way I've configured it is how it's meant to be.
  • Olm's colourful orbs prayer attack no longer covers the entire room, but rather only where it faces.
  • Players are given a few seconds of immunity from incoming hits after they die in raids, avoiding them from getting hit by attacks right after they respawn.
  • Scavenger beasts' walk radius has been lowered by 25%.
  • The crystal bombs Olm attack damage is now properly scaling with distance.
  • Metamorphic dust can now only be obtained through challenge mode raids.
  • In one of the room rotations for the muttadiles, the tendrils were pushed slightly back, allowing for a safespot that is commonly used in RS.
  • Olm's phases count is now calculated when the raid begins, not when an instance is made - this previously made Olm always have only three phases, regardless of the number of participants.
  • Fixed an issue with dynamic map building when the map gets built beyond a certain point in void - the numbers would overflow and cause maps to start colliding in each-other. This was never caught in the past as the server was always restarted long before enough instances were made for it to be an issue, but with large raids maps and scouting, this quickly became an issue.
  • Dousing a fire wall in the Olm's chamber now consumes the runes that were used in casting the spell.
  • Players can now continue harvesting herbs in raids even if they don't have the necessary inventory space.
  • Lizardman poison attack should no longer damage people beyond the tendrils.
  • Raid room loading has been made safer; previously, an issue existed that caused raid not to properly load if 16 or more people entered it, as the skilling room with bats would fail to load due to not enough NPC spawn locations being defined.
  • Olm is now slightly less likely to switch to the opposite basic attack; the frequency was a bit higher than in RS.
  • Removed points cap from Muttadiles room as they cannot be abused in any way anyways.
  • Vasa Nistirio's glowing crystals can no longer be damaged with magic and ranged.
  • Rewrote the eating sequence of Muttadiles, meaning freezes should prevent muttadiles from reaching the tree. The muttadiles should also no longer eat from across half the room when frozen.
  • An issue with the expeditious bracelet has been fixed which prevented people from completing their assignments.
  • The dragon claws item in received from raids has been fixed to the correct one.
  • Olm's crystal burst attack should now always occur for every member of the raid within the chamber.
  • Granite longsword animations and attack options patched.


Bugfixes as of 26/10/2019

  • Several memory enhancements, aim of this update is to expand the lifetime of the server before it inevitably starts lagging. Spewnt better part of my morning looking into where it could cause problems.
  • Seedlings should now properly turn to saplings in banks.
  • You can no longer enchant bolts if you have no room in inventory to do so - previously the enchanted bolts would just vanish.
  • Fletching is now possible if the player has a full inventory, but already one of the stackable product that the fletching action provides.
  • Thammaron's sceptre, Viggora's chainmace and Craw's bow have had their wield requirements added.

Fantastic work on Raids, I know how much effort went into that from you Kris, as well as the QA testers & everyone else involved. 

The introduction of gambling here may have slightly gone unnoticed, that is also something that is sure to bring players back to the game. Not to mention that COLOSSAL bug fix list, amazing work all round. 

Thank you!
