[27-04-15] EoC/Legacy Mash Up

Recommended Posts

EoC/Legacy Mash Up

 

Today, there's more choice than ever in how you play RuneScape, with theEoC/Legacy Mash Up – a set of interface and gameplay options fresh out of the beta.

Previously, you had the choice of playing RuneScape with the Evolution of Combat system and complex, customisable interfaces, or in Legacy Mode, with old-style, low-intensity combat and traditional, fixed interfaces.

Now, you can pick and choose your favourites in any of four combinations, straight from the Combat Settings interface:

  • Evolution of Combat and New Interface System
  • Evolution of Combat and Legacy interfaces
  • Legacy combat and New Interface System
  • Legacy combat and interfaces
Enjoy! This is just the first of a number of updates coming your way from the current round of beta testing. If you haven't already, get involved! It's the best way to have your say in some of RuneScape's most crucial updates.

Solomon's Store - Shadow and Fire Drakes

Solomon's roster of legendary pets just got hotter with the shadow drake and fire drake!

There's no more ferocious friend to take on your adventures than one of these winged beasts, who – like all legendary pets – have three stages of growth, plus emotes and a load of useful abilities.

The shadow drake is available for a limited time only, so it's sure to become a rare sight. Get your drake now at Solomon's Store!

On top of this, Solomon's reduced the price of legendary pets – the exclusive shadow drake excepted. Pet collectors rejoice!

If you need more RuneCoins, you can redeem Bonds in-game, or purchase more via the website.

Congratulations to Sailthree – the winner of our recent shadow drake competition – who was first to suggest the winning name of Fury. This is now immortalised in-game as a pet name option. Check the forum thread if you entered and want to see if you were a runner up – your shadow drake is winging its way to you!

 

 

Legendary Pet Improvements

To accompany the release of the two drakes, we've revamped the way that legendary pets work.

Legendary pets can now have up to three abilities active at one time. These are equipped in slots, which are unlocked as your pet reaches new growth stages.

Six new abilities are available for you to equip on you legendary pets:

  • Slayer finisher: your pet will automatically finish off slayer monsters that usually require an item, saving you in inventory slot.
  • Item repair: once per hour, you can use a repairable degrading item on your pet to repair it immediately. This works – and costs – the same as using the POH armour stand.
  • Beast of Burden: use a beast of burden familiar pouch on your pet to grant it the according level of BoB capacity. You must have the necessary Summoning level to use the pouch, and you can use more pouches to stack or renew the duration up to 2 hours.
  • High Alchemy: once per 10 minutes, use an item on your pet to convert it to coins, as per the High Alchemy spell. This requires no runes, and gives no Magic XP. Requires 55 Magic.
  • Fertiliser: every hour, your pet will answer the call of nature. The results – only viewable to you – can be picked up for six buckets of super compost.
  • Life Saver: your pet will save you from death, as per a ring of life. Note that this does not work in PvP areas and has a two-hour cooldown (logged-in time).
Note that life saver, slayer finisher, repair item and fertiliser aren't available for Ironman accounts.

Also, the existing abilities have been improved:

  • Forage has an improved drop table, and foraged coins are now added straight to your money pouch.
  • Scavenging now begins as soon as the ability activates, has an improved interface, and your pet will more reliably deliver items it picks up.
Treasure Hunter – Spring Cleaner & Prize Management

A number of changes have been made to the spring cleaner, making it easier and more worthwhile to use:

  • Setup has been simplified, offering auto or manual set up, and dismantle or research modes.
  • The spring cleaner can now be made more effective by using springs, increasing research XP and dismantle efficiency – even unlocking the ability to break down noted or stackable items.
  • You can fully upgrade immediately at a cost of 10,000 springs, or your cleaner will upgrade over a series of tiers as it uses springs normally.
  • Spring capacity has increased to 250,000.
  • Crossbows and battlestaves are broken down into more useful items.
  • Items that the spring cleaner fails to break down are dropped to the floor.
  • Messaging has been improved.
The new Treasure Hunter Prize Management Interface is just the thing if you've accumulated prizes and aren't sure what to do with them. Talk to Alice or click the hammer and wrench icon in Treasure Hunter. The interface:
  • Lists all Treasure Hunter items that you own.
  • Allows you to search by typing in an item name.
  • Allows you to destroy unwanted items, or convert eligible items to coins.

In Other News

  • The RuneLabs criteria change tomorrow, to a small-sized Halloween/horror-themed update. Start thinking about the sort of scary ideas you'd like to see in game!

[spoiler=Patch Notes]Aquarium changes:

 

A list has been added to the aquarium bathysphere to allow players to track their fish eggs and prawnball count.

  • Players who have reset their aquarium with a plug can now visit the prawnbroker to activate an animation override for bare-handed fishing. Resetting once will unlock silver-coloured fish and resetting twice will give gold-coloured fish when catching them bare-handed. This affects tuna, swordfish, shark and great white shark. Baron sharks are not affected.
  • Bare-handed catching the above fish will now use an updated model (introduced with the aquarium), with the default colours when they are caught.
  • Certain prawn ball items have been made tradeable on the Grand Exchange, and can now be sold to shops.
  • The following items are now stackable in the player's inventory. Previously noted versions now have a "convert" option to switch them to the regular stackable version:
    • Telescope lenses
    • Porthole
    • Message in a bottle
    • Shark jawbone
    • Ship figurehead
  • Players can now earn a golden mystery egg from the Motherlode maw.
  • Ironman players can now use regular and golden prawn crackers on the prawnbroker in their Player-Owned House to open the crackers and earn the reward inside.
  • Signs of the porter will now correctly transport raw great white sharks to the bank while fishing.
  • The message displayed after earning a prawn perk via catching prawn balls has been changed to yellow so it stands out.
  • The message that appears when running out of charges from a prawn penny or prawn pound is now red and no longer spam-filtered to make it more noticeable when fishing.
  • Butlers can no longer get stuck inside an aquarium.
  • Catching a great white shark will now contribute towards earning your next prawn ball.
  • Opening an oyster inside an aquarium no longer displays a message about opening a purse.
  • The driftwood prawnbroker no longer appears twice in the Construction skill guide.
  • A typo previously displayed when opening a prawn ball has been fixed.
  • A typo previously displayed in the aquarium when harvesting seaweed has been fixed.
Ninja Fixes:
 
  • The 'Archmage' title, and 'the Blue' / 'the Green' / 'the Red' / 'the Grey' titles can now be activated from the Titles interface, depending on the player's quest choices during Rune Mysteries.
  • A warning now appears 5 minutes prior to the 23 hour automatic logout.
Graphical:
  • Pikkupstix now wears the Summoning Cape instead of a Slayer Cape in the Three's Company Fremennik Saga.
  • The Vitality Suit will no longer display in the Wilderness when taking damage.
Skills, D&Ds & Minigames:
  • The Mage of Zamorak in the Wilderness will no longer allow players to be teleported while carrying warband supplies.
  • Players can no longer activate the wicked hood inside Barbarian Assault games.
  • Skill lamp cash-out values have been made consistent with prismatic lamp values on Treasure Hunter.
  • Opening the Treasure Hunter interface via the Upgrades & Extras button with no keys remaining no longer causes the frame rate to drop.
Quests, Challenges and Achievements:
 
  • Overload salve and supreme overload salve will now correctly protect players from Elvarg's dragon fire breath.
  • The Task 'Stand Still, Eluned' can no longer be completed via the NPC contact spell.
Other:
  • The Lily of the Valley has returned!
  • Vorago can no longer walk on top of players in obscure circumstances on the final phase.
  • An issue with toggling always-on chat mode while gazing into the Orb of Oculus has been fixed.
  • Using an Orb of Oculus before entering a dungeon no longer breaks the camera during Dungeoneering.
  • Wishing well fruits have been rebalanced to prevent players from receiving excessive amounts of low-priced seeds.
  • Camera issues in the Salt in the Wound cave have been fixed.
  • An issue that was preventing players from being able to use the Wilderness lodestone via the World Map has been fixed.
  • Players can now teleport to the Prifddinas lodestone via both the RuneScape Surface and Prifddinas world maps.

A warning now appears 5 minutes prior to the 23 hour automatic logout.

 

This was needed? XD Seriously if you play 23 hours straight you are either botting, sharing or being unhealthy. 6 hours straight was already being considered unhealthy, but I could understand a 5 minute warning for that... but for 23 hours? :P

When is Jagex going to understand that the game will produce more money over time if they stop [bleep]ing around with spring cleaner like shit on treasure hunter and use it as an ingame reward?

 

And what is with the arbitrary can't use on ironman features of the new pets?

It was this or Scrooge McDuck's storehouse.

Now I think of it, the spring cleaner DOES look like his storehouse.

I guess people still complained about the log off with no warning, so they figured better safe than sorry.

True, there should be a warning, although I hope it comes with a joke about their health as well :P I can see people doing this once in a while... but I hope nobody does this to often :|

A medical worker should call in to anyone who gets that warning, just to remind them of their poor life choices.

I hit the 6 hour limit before quite a bit. The most annoying thing was having to reload the client multiple times every day just to be able to log back in though.

Or a psychiatric professional should call you when you log in to this game in 2015 instead?

 

Or "You have five minutes to finish before we want you to go outside."

I appreciate the increased timer before log out. It just saves me having to reload the client between sessions.

I don't know how people can go 6 hours without having to do something else in that time which takes longer than 5 continuous minutes.
