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!

In Other News

  • Prifddinas pickpocketing has been rebalanced to be more profitable:
    • There is now a greater chance of receiving items – including three times the chance to get charms from Amlodd elves.
    • Some less-valuable rewards – such as cups of tea – have been removed.
    • More items are now given in noted form.
    • Show your support for your favourite RuneLabs ideas. This month, we're looking for small-sized projects or lower – think Harbingers of Tuska, Skillchompas or Let Them Eat Pie.

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)

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?

The wildywyrm rare drops have a global announcement so if you do manage to get lucky you'd better hightail your ass out of there.

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

Neat.
 

Incidentally, that is the name of the special attack. How wicked is that?

I kind of hope they upped the Ninja Team's budget, considering they've now basically become Jagex's A-team for full content updates :v
