Hey guys,

Halloween's just around the corner and I've also prepared some items fitting the theme! I'm also scheduling the next Double Experience weekend and released some QoL changes. As always also quite a few fixes and engine improvements. Thanks for your reports and feedback!

Halloween 2018
You are able to obtain Skulls again after completing the Draynor Manor I quest. Please don't forget that you need the Muncher pet following you in order to be able to receive skulls! A new skeletal Raven pet has been added to the shop that also counts as Muncher when collecting Skulls. Moreover you can now buy 3 possessed hats that fit the overall Halloween theme well. The may or may not have a hidden special ability. ;)


Double Experience Weekend - November 2nd through 4th!!

Time for another Double Experience weekend. Also time to start stacking up resources!

Game fixes / changes:
  • Member tickets can no longer be staked. I don't think it's a good idea to be able to stake membership. It encourages stacking up member tickets and devalues them a lot imho. I've noticed that a lot of them have been staked recently and am thus disabling it.
  • The Tool Leprechaun now also notes cleaned herbs for you.
  • You now have an up to 70% chance to steal another gem from the Gem stall. The chance increases with your Thieving level.
  • Bob and the Construction workshop now give you an option to repair all items in your inventory.
  • Slayer partners can now extend their tasks too.
  • Closing the client now keeps you 15 seconds online instead of 10 when being in the wilderness. You shouldn't be able to escape fights by logging out.
  • Kalphite Queen now spawns 2 minions. They need to be killed in order for her to be respawned.
  • You are now able to equip items when having the bank opened. Simply right-click the item you wish to equip in your inventory while your bank is open and you will have an Equip option.

Engine fixes / changes:
  • Minimap rendering overhauled. It's now smoother and also faster. Minimap transformations and rotations are now done on the GPU than on the CPU. This reduces loading times and increases your fps rate - especially with higher Rendering Distances.
  • Worldmap Viewer overhauled. It has become a little slow with the recent rendering improvements. The system was designed to speed up rendering and not creating maps. The new worldmap viewer system now also benefits from the rendering improvements and will load much quicker.

The new wilderness boss couldn't quite make it into this patch, but I'm looking forward for it to be released in the next one. My plan is to give it a new ranged weapon drop (crossbow or bow) that has a strong special attack. I am also looking into something similar to OSRS' dragon thrown-axes, so that there's also a range variant of the granite maul. I'd also like to introduce Karambwans or another similar food type in the coming patches. What do you think about that?

All the best,
Thomy

I really like the update overall, the new boss part but i'll have to dislike with the idea to add karambwans into the game, that will increase max hp per tick from 41-59 and even more safing will be done in wildy.

But let's see what the maister brings us!

This would actually make people safe less, because right now people can't eat fast enough and they don't want to die due slow eating.
