Zaros Updates [26/11/2022]

Good Morning, Zaros!
 
Today's update introduces the long-awaited Raids III : Tombs of Amascut. Before diving in, have a read over our patch notes listed and let us know what you think!
 
Tombs of Amascut:
  • Teleport available in the "Minigames" section of the teleporter.
  • No prerequisites to start a raid.
  • Overview:
    • Throughout development, we've striven to keep all mechanics 1:1 with Oldschool Runescape. Players may use similar tactics described in videos and guides to complete the raid. Invocations, scaling, and path levels all function correctly and will greatly change the difficulty and mechanics of the raid.
    • This activity is unsafe for hardcore ironmen.
  • Drop Rates/Points:
    • Drop rates for unique item rates, pet rates, and common reward quantity use a "point" system. In simple terms, this functions similar to CoX in that the more points you rack up the better chance you have for rewards.
    • Points earned on Zaros are boosted by a base amount of 40%. Players will have opportunities in future updates to further boost points earned through the town board and scrolls in the voting store. If you're a math savvy player and would like to read more about the point system, you can visit this in-depth article written by Jagex. There is also a loot calculator on the OSRS Wiki (note: this shows OSRS rates)
    • Drop rates for keris jewels and thread of elidinis are not based on the point system. Because of this, we have reduced their rates by 50% (compared to OSRS)
    • We encourage players to have a quick read over this article on loot mechanics. This breaks down weightings for unique items, tertiary rewards, and raid prerequisites for rolling untradeables like pet metamorphs and ornamental kits.
  • New Items/Rewards:
    • Tumeken's Shadow
      • Two-handed powered staff. Passive effect in which the player's magic attack bonus and magic damage are multiplied by three from the player's worn equipment (four within the Tombs of Amascut); the magic damage increase from this is capped at a total of 100% Magic Strength.
    • Masori Equipment
      • New best-in-slot range gear surpassing Armadyl armour for attack bonuses. can also be upgraded into a fortified variant with Armadyl plates, increasing the Defence level required to equip it to 80, offering increased defensive bonuses and a +1 prayer bonus, which in turn makes it surpass Armadyl armour's defensive bonuses
    • Elidinis' Ward
      • The ward can be fortified by attaching an arcane sigil to the ward, creating a fortified variant; doing so requires level 90 Prayer, 90 Smithing, and 10,000 soul runes, granting 260 experience in both skills in the process. Players cannot pay Abbot Langley to restore the ward, though he can remove the sigil from an arcane spirit shield.
    • Osmumten's fang
      • The fang has two unique passive effects which aim to make it effective against targets with high Defence levels and more consistent overall: re-rolling accuracy on an unsuccessful hit and making damage rolls closer to the average. The special combat mechanics are described in more detail below.
    • Lightbearer
      • Having no requirements to wear, the ring regenerates the player's special attack energy twice as fast at 15 seconds per 10%, or 150 seconds per 100%. Equipping or unequipping the ring will cause the special attack energy restoration timer to reset.
    • Thread of Elidinis
      • Can be used on a rune pouch to create a divine rune pouch, which can store four types of runes instead of three.
    • Keris Jewels
      • Breach of the scarab
      • Eye of the corruptor
      • Jewel of the sun
    • Tumeken's Guardian (pet)
      • 89 Rating
      • A pet perk will be added on the following update after the pet rarity is determined.
      • There are also 5 untradeable items dropped from the raid that further metamorph the pet. Read more about them and their requirements here.
    • Cursed phalanx
      • Ornament kit that can be used on Osmumten's fang. In order to receive one, players must complete a raid at level 500+ with zero deaths for all party members.
    • Menaphite ornament kit
      • Ornament kit that can be used on Elidinis' ward(f). In order to receive one, players must complete a raid at level 425+ with zero deaths for all party members.
    • Masori crafting kit
      • Ornament kit that can be used on Ava's assembler. In order to receive one, players must complete a raid at level 350+ with zero deaths for all party members.
  • Resources/Helpful Videos:
  • A big thank you goes out to our beta team for their continuous testing over the past month.

Zaros Updates [19/8/2022]

Friday, 19th August 2022 by Hope

Happy Friday, Zaros! Today's update brings a more challenging version of Zulrah, new speed records to compete for, and a bunch of bug fixes and QOL changes. Have a read over the notes and let us know what you think!
 
Speed Records:
  • Previously, speed records were recorded in-game per world and were only available for a handful of bosses and activities. We've decided to expand this system above and beyond what OSRS offers.
  • Speed records can now be attempted for the following bosses/activities:
    • Zulrah (normal and hard), Vorkath, Grotesque Guardians, Alchemical Hydra, Zalcano, Inferno (waves 1-69 and waves 67-69), Nightmare (regular and phosani), Skotizo, Fight Caves (jad), Mimic, Hespori, Vanstrom Klause, Fragment of Seren, Xamphur (normal and hard), Judge of Yama, Gauntlet (normal and corrupted), Hallowed Sepulchre (floors 1-5), Ket-Rak's Challenges (1-6), Tempoross, and Nex.
  • Aside from improving your personal records, the game will now broadcast if you have beaten a global speed record. These broadcasts will now also be broadcasted on discord.
  • All personal speed records have been wiped clean. Global speed records for all activities except chambers of xeric and theatre of blood have been wiped clean.
  • You can now view your own speed records through the command ::speed or ::speedrecords
  • We will work on adding global speed records for each boss/activity to the website highscores in the future. In the meantime, global records for all bosses can be viewed with the command ::globalspeed or ::globalspeedrecords
 
Zulrah Hard Mode:
  • Combat level increased to 906 (previously 725)
  • Hitpoints increased to 625 (previously 500)
  • Immune to bleed damage, recoil damage, and vengeance
  • Attack speed increased to 2 ticks (previously 3)
  • Mechanics:
    • New Zulrah Form: Toxic
      • In this form, Zulrah starts out attacking with range and will switch styles each time after spawning a snakeling.
      • Snakelings spawned by this form are immune to recoil damage and will heal zulrah for the amount of damage they deal to you. Make sure you get rid of them quickly!
      • This form has been inserted two times (one near the start and one right before jad phases) into all four rotations. Players will still be able to recognize which rotation they are on based on patterns from normal mode.
    • Poison clouds deal more damage and will heal zulrah for the same amount of damage dealt to you. They last 12 ticks instead of the normal 18 ticks since Zulrah's attack speed is sped up.
    • Unless killed by recoil or other damage, the Snakelings spawned will last for 60 seconds instead of the normal 40 seconds.
    • Pillars have been removed from the map, there are no longer any safe spots.
  • Rewards:
    • Buffed loot table
      • Increased quantities
      • Removed junk items
      • Added new resources and alchables
    • Improved rates for unique/tertiary items/pet
    • Toxic Dust
      • Use this on your pet snakeling to unlock a new variant to metamorph into
