[16-2-15] Ninja Update – Return of the Wildywyrm

Recommended Posts

Ninja Update – Return of the Wildywyrm

The Wildywyrm is back! Lured by the deaths of her new lava strykewyrm cousins or summoned from the depths by JMods, the Wildywyrm is a hard target for level 94 Slayers.
Wyrm slaying can yield all-new weapon modifications, used in the creation of level 85 weapons with unique mechanics and special attacks. There are high-level ashes and food items to be looted, too.
Read on for more information.


Conquer a Wyrm
Lava strykewyrms now roam the Wilderness, south of the Lava Maze.
These beasts are assigned as Slayer targets by Kuradal or Movran, but can be fought off-assignment too – just make sure you've the 94 Slayer needed to kill them!
They're formidable foes, fighting with all three combat styles and deadly AoE attacks, so come packing the best gear you can afford to risk.
Each time a lava strykewyrm dies, there's a small chance that the legendaryWildywyrm herself will emerge. Larger and far more deadly than her kin, you'll need a team to take her down. Look out for global announcements to find out when the Wildywyrm spawns, then head over and help out.
Note that JMods have the ability to spawn the Wildywyrm, should they wish – watch out for her at JMod-led events!


Rewards
Lava strykewyrms and the Wildywyrm can drop some highly lucrative loot.
Note that while the Wildywyrm doesn't drop anything that the lava strykewyrms don't, she has a better chance to drop rarer rewards, and everyone who participates in her demise gets their own drops.
Three new weapons modifications are the big draw here. These items can be used to upgrade commonly used weapons into mighty level 85 weapons with unique special attacks:

  • Lava whip: this searing scourge is made by combining a wyrm spike with anabyssal whip (or vine whip/whip vine). It special attack drags your target toward you – across any obstacle that doesn't block range. We're looking forward to the wicked tactics you devise for this!
  • Staff of darkness: combine a wyrm heart with a staff of light and get this malign magical weapon. It has all the benefits of a staff of light with level 85 stats, plus a special attack that absorbs and reflects 25% of incoming damage for 20 seconds.
  • Strykebow: the result of a wyrm scalp and dark bow combined, the strykebow is a real master's weapon. It has a passive ability to store up damage received and release it in an extra attack with every 5 auto-attacks or 15 abilities you fire off. Plus, there's a special attack which increases and unleashes the bow's stored damage as a quick damage-over-time effect.

These three weapons have a new degrade mechanic, too. Each lasts for 10 hours of combat, and is destroyed when it degrades fully, returning the spike, heart or scalp to you. You can repair one of these weapons by using its base item on it (which repairs it by 20% for the whip and bow, and 50% for the staff). Alternatively, create a new one when it is destroyed, using the returned modification item on another weapon.
As well as the weapon modifications, the wyrms can also drop the following:

  • Searing ashes give the best Prayer XP of any ashes in-game – only a little less than burying frost dragon bones. These are a guaranteed drop, so Wildywyrm hunting should always be a profitable endeavour.
  • Fury sharks heal up to 2475 life points in combat and up to 2800 out, and will protect an additional item on death for 1 minute (although not more than the five-item maximum).

Enjoy!
Have fun wyrm hunting in the Wilderness. Let us know how you get on over on the forums!

I find it odd that using a weapon on the new weps will partially repair it, but waiting for it to degrade and then using the wep to make a new one fully "repairs" it. What's the reasoning behind that?

 

Cool update for those willing to risk it; I'm curious to see what the new weapons look like in action. The concept art was delicious, as I recall.

 

Edit: Patch notes (feel free to add to first post)

  • A one-way window has been removed from older versions of the Player-Owned Ports bar.
  • Feet and dropped items no longer clip through the floor of the Kal'gerion demon resource dungeon.
Skills, D&Ds & Minigames
  • Players may now claim a second captain's log from Duncan.
  • The captain's log can now be added to the pocket slot, so users can perform all the functions of the captain's log and save an inventory slot!
  • Auto-cast spells will no longer be unset when entering Sinkholes.
  • Bone Face no longer lingers in the boss room while escaping from Thok.
  • It is no longer possible to dig up the plant patch on Harmony Island.
  • Players will no longer disconnect while training herblore if their familiar expires while holding herblore supplies.
  • An assassin will no longer spawn on a terracotta pot within the terracotta warehouse during the 'Simple Favour' Player-Owned Ports random event.
  • A typo on the Player-Owned Ports upgrade buildings interface for bars and lodgings has been fixed.
  • A typo in a Player-Owned Ports voyage has been fixed.
  • Hunter implings are no longer able to find their way up the cliffsides at Shantay Pass.
  • The combat level for Pest Control on the Minigame tab of the Adventures interface has been updated.
  • A typo previously shown when resetting the Tears of Guthix D&D with a D&D token has been fixed.
Quests, Challenges and Achievements

  • The hint arrow for the HAM follower challenges will now point to the correct location.

     

Other

  • Dreadnips will no longer get blocked by players or NPCs.
  • Dreadnips will no longer attempt to stun a stunned NPC or a stun-immune NPC.
  • The World Hop interface in-game now shows more information on activities.

Obtained quest cape and base 92 before obtaining any 99s! Currently finishing out my 99s with the (long-distant) goal of comp cape.

Been PKed (10k gp risk...they're just doing it to troll) on every world so far except Quick Chat, was able to stay for a very long time there.  Drops seem too rare to be worth the time, however.  Looking forward to surprise drops on slayer tasks.

I agree, you need to put the Shadow dye on first.

 

Anyway...day 16, running low on food and water. Still holding out hope for a non-Ninja/Patch update this month, but we won't last much longer at this rate...

Wow Jagex, removing cups of tea as elf rewards? 0/10, do you even know balance?

 

Then again, Jagex has always hated people who play tea party, so this update isn't so surprising. Back to Varrok then.

Weren't people like mass complaining to remove these as a joke that got out of hand?

If they removed my beloved teas I hope they actually have Ithell something worthwhile to justify theiving there. Second lowest exp and no loot besides coins that are worth it. Guess I'll continue to only thieve there on VoS.

The xp, dragon bones and lap modifiers are pretty balanced and certainly worth it

This was my favourite patch note:

Spiritual warriors, mages and rangers no longer count towards automaton slayer tasks.

 

How does that even happen?
