Looking for ROTS and/or Raids (1 kill)

08 June 2018 - 03:57 PM

I'm looking for a group willing to take me for ROTS and/or Raids, hopefully this weekend. For the moment I'm just interested in 1 kill and I haven't done either before, so I can try and fulfill whatever role is needed and doesn't require committing too much to memory. Feel free to message me any time on "Arceuus" in-game or message me on here - if I don't respond right away I'm likely afk in the lobby. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Got them now. May still be interested in kills for the future if anyone comes across this.

27 Nov 2017 - Evil Dave | Winter Weekends

27 November 2017 - 05:18 PM

Evil Dave | Winter Weekends

 

What an exciting week lies ahead! We’ve got the Winter Weekend, the Festive Aura, the Ribbon Rework and the release of our new, eagerly-awaited Evil Dave quest.

 

Speak of the devil…

 

Dave, we’ve talked about this. What do you want?

 

I’m trying to work, Dave! Can’t you see I’ve got a news post to…

 

You can’t just… Yes of course I know about Zamorak!

 

Give that back! Give it back right now! Give me th...

 

Hey! Adventurer! It’s me, Evil Dave!

 

Crazy news - turns out ZAMORAK is back in town (who knew, right!?), and I need YOUR help to conduct the RITUAL OF ULTIMATE DOOMLY EVIL to make him notice me.

 

You’ll find me at the Basement of DOOM - beneath my mother’s house in Edgeville. I’ll explain the whole thing there. You’ll need to have done my section of RECIPE FOR DISASTER and be a member with at least level 30 in herblore, magic, agility and cooking. Oh, and you’ll need to be EVIL!

 

Mod Scorpio’s giving me an EVIIIL look, so I’d better relinquish my dominion of the KEYBOARD OF CHAOS. See you in-game!

 

*ahem*

 

Combat Winter Weekend

 

The first of the Winter Weekends will soon be upon us! Get in game between the 1st at midday game time until the 4th of December (again, midday game time) for the following boosts:

  • An extra charm from charm drops
  • Increased chance of rare drops and enhanced ring of wealth
  • +50% bonus Slayer XP
  • Slayer VIP Ticket status for all Slayer assignments
  • +50% bonus anima in Shattered Worlds - NEW!
  • 10% cheaper instance fees
  • The ability to loot from Mazcab Raids once per day
  • Extra training points from Boss Training
  • The ability to choose your Boss Slayer assignment - NEW!

 

Check out the schedule for subsequent Winter Weekends throughout December and January. Menaphos and Sophanem will take the stage the following weekend, and after that minigames, skilling and lastly clue scrolls.

 

On top of that, bonuses for Player-Owned Ports will be running for the entire five week duration! Expect to see:

  • 25 voyages per day instead of 15
  • + 30% extra resources or trade goods from voyages
  • The ability to get The Barmaid's special voyage on Saturdays and Sundays (in addition to Thursdays)

 

Festive Aura

 

Feeling festive? During December, members can activate the annual Festive Aura for 30 minutes once a day for a 50% XP boost - plus a winter wings cosmetic!

 

This should appear automatically in your inventory. However, if your inventory is full, you can still claim the Festive Aura by speaking to Xuan or Dilwyn - located east of Burthorpe Castle and in the Tower of Voices in Prifddinas, respectively - opening up their shops and taking a look at the auras.

 

Premier Club & Solomon's Store Sale

 

Want exclusive content, VIP treatment and supercharged membership - all for less than the standard membership price? Find out about Premier Club - our best membership deal of the year - on the Premier Club page!

 

We’re also offering up to 75% off selected items in Solomon’s General Store! More details here.

 

Patch Notes - Ribbon Rework

 

Mod Hunter’s made a number of handy tweaks to the ribbon. What a legend.

  • The window can now be resized and now adds space between icons
  • The following windows can now be added to the ribbon: magic abilities, combat spells, teleport spells, skilling spells, attack abilities, strength abilities, defence abilities, constitution abilities and emotes. This is now easier for us to do, should we need to add more.
  • The following features have been added to the ‘Ribbon Setup’ interface:
  • You can now reset your ribbon to the default icons or clear it in one go
  • Icons added to the bar are now removed from the selection area
  • Spacing has been improved for the ‘Ribbon Setup’ interface and the Options Menu. A section for window management has also been added to the latter.
  • Of the two windows labelled ‘Magic Abilities’, the main has been renamed ‘Magic Book’ and been given an icon to match.
  • Melee and attack abilities now have separate icons (melee uses crossed swords).
  • The ‘worn equipment’ icon has been changed to distinguish it from the ‘hero’ icon.
  • The drawer icon has been replaced with a settings cog to make room.

...Thanks Mod Hunter!

 

To ensure that these changes have had the desired effect, they will now be tested for new players, half of whom will see the existing, unchanged setup while the other half are exposed to the above.

 

You can read the full list of this week’s updates - including optimisations resulting from some fancy new dev tools - on the patch notes forum thread.

 

MWAHAHAHA!

 

Evil is the BEST!

16 Oct 2017 - Dimension of the Damned

16 October 2017 - 11:36 PM

Dimension of the Damned

Pit yourself and your friends against the undead in Dimension of the Damned and compete for the unique title of King/Queen of the Damned and a host of prizes - the ultimate PvM challenge.

Start the one-hour timer using your HUD in-game and rack up points while slaying as many zombies as you can to secure your place on the leaderboard. You can restart the clock to improve your score as many times as you’d like. The top 1,000 players after ten days will make it through to the finale on the 28th for the chance to win a selection of sought-after prizes, including (but not limited to) lifetime membership, an all expenses paid trip to Jagex and 200M GP.

Need-to-knows

Dimension of the Damned is PvM only, even in the Wilderness.
All players start with maxed stats and starter gear.
Catching Zombeism from bites saps your health, but you can stave off the effects by taking antidotes and/or consuming modified shrimps prior to battle.
These (and other useful items) can be obtained from Zkrik’s shop in Falador using bottle corks. You can also get them from supply drops, but you'll only have three minutes to find the crate.
Falador is a safe space where the dead don’t rise. You’ll be escorted back there by white knights if you become inactive, and you’ll respawn there if you die. However, players with Zombeism can’t pass through the gates.
Banks across Gielinor will be open for use. Space is limited though, and you’ll have to pay for it in bottle corks.
You can read about the rules for the finale here.

The chance to compete for a place in the Finale ends in ten days, so don’t delay. You’ll also be able to see how the Jmods fare in Dimension of the Damned during Tuesday’s live stream! Details below.

Note that Dimension of the Damned is only available in NXT - Click here to download the client!

9 Oct 2017 - Free to Play Content Additions & NovtumberFest

09 October 2017 - 08:12 PM

Free to Play Content Additions & NovtumberFest

This week we introduce a tome's worth of content additions for new players, including Fletching, quests, armour and more (scroll down). You'll also be able to take part in our new seasonal in-game event.

NovtumberFest

Russet leaves are falling where the Beach Party once thronged, and the inhabitants of Lumbridge are taking their gloves and scarves out of storage for another brisk, autumn season. Be that as it may, no amount of wind and cold can dampen their spirits. They're ready to celebrate once more – it's NovtumberFest!

Heady pints and eye-catching lederhosen abound for the next four weeks in this latest skilling extravaganza. You'll be able to train an agglomeration of skills – from slayer to prayer, farming to summoning – with no entry fee and no XP cap.

More the roaming, lone wolf type? Keep an eye out for Gunther's cart, which will be running into trouble every three hours in free-to-play areas. XP will flow for the adventurer who helps him out!

Rewards? Of course there will be rewards! Aside from the opportunity to train with your friends in style, we're offering a selection of NovtumberFest-themed pets, anims, outfits, gear and a 'Party Animal' title to those who give it their all – free players included.

Bottoms up!

Free to Play Content Additions

Yeah, you read that right. We're opening up a truckload of content to free players. Because, unlike those jumbo multipacks of chocolate, RuneScape is something that's genuinely better shared.

No point dallying. Here's the list of content that is now available to all:

Quests

  • A Soul's Bane
  • Priest in Peril
  • Gertrude's Cat
  • Missing, Presumed Death
  • Perils of Ice Mountain, including the ability to smith pickaxes
  • Song from the Depths and the first level of the grotworm cavern
  • Broken Home, as well as the post-quest content (although the asylum surgeon's ring is still members-only); as such, the explorable area for free players has been expanded up to Morytania and the dig site at Silvarea
  • Skills and abilities

Fletching
All combat abilities (excluding Metamorphosis, Berserk and abilities unlocked by member’s content)

 

Weapons and armour

  • Off-hand weapons
  • Coifs
  • Studded leather armour
  • Hard leather chaps
  • Hard leather cowl
  • Spider silk shield
  • Carapace shield
  • Wizard armour, including the boots and shield

Extras

  • Shooting Star D&D
  • Evil Tree D&D
  • Access to the Warrior's Guild (and defenders up to Rune!)

This is also just a summary of the changes, full details of which can be read in this week’s patch notes. Now that's said: if you're happy and you know it, show the Ninja team some love!

*shows love*

Patch Notes

This week's patch notes are some of our meatiest yet, with a whole tome's worth of content from the ninja team. Seriously, we've had to restructure it to keep it from being one, giant wall o' text. You can read it all here on the forums thread.

Enjoy!

18 Sep 2017 - Invention Batch 2 Launch

18 September 2017 - 02:31 PM

Invention Batch 2 Launch

Recovered from Double XP Weekend yet? Not so fast. Invention batch 2 launches today, so there's oodles still to sink your teeth into.

Invention Batch 2

Make way, make way! Invention batch 2 has arrived, and with it, some eagerly awaited additions and tweaks to our youngest skill.

Let's start with the big'un: machines. Brand new to Invention, these can be used to automate a selection of tasks slowly over time, even while you're offline. All you need to do is keep your generator topped up with divine charge. Talk about AFK.

You can have up to six of these – including duplicates – and each has two tiers. Plus, you'll get your own workshop to tinker away in, which can be found in the new room at the back of the Invention Guild. Here's what's on the menu:

The Alchemiser, which bestows your items with the gift of high alchemy, turning them to gold.
The Auto Disassembler, which breaks down your items into useful parts and components.
The Plank Maker, which turns your common or garden logs into beautiful planks.
The Partial Potion Producer, which whizzes up your herbs and pops them into vials. It won't make a complete potion, but it's a welcome time saver.
The Automatic Hide Tanner, which...yeah, you guessed it. It tans your hides to make leather.
Salivating over your keyboard? There's more...

We're also introducing 12 new devices, many of which fill the post-level-99 gap rather snugly. At the risk of further whetting your appetites, here's a sneak peek:

The Separator, which removes gizmos from your equipment without damaging it (equipment must be at least level 15).
The Divine-O-Matic, which harvests energy – and memories if you're so inclined – while you train Divination and turns them into Divine Charge, which you can use to power your shiny, new machines.
Another thing: we've nabbed the Spring Cleaner and the Tight Springs from Treasure Hunter and added them to our growing device range. Both can be constructed at an Invention workbench – but first you've got to discover the blue prints!

What else is there? Well, Invention batch 2 comes with a plethora of benefits for high level augmented items – including drain rate reductions and, at level 20, an increased chance of perk activation. Plus, we've had our ears on the ground, and we've taken on some of your suggestions and made some important QOL tweaks:

We've removed inspiration. Gone. Finito!
Augmentors are now tradeable.
You can now hide the cogs on your augmented equipment (outside of PvP, anyway).
We reworked the 120 Invention emote to make it harder, better, faster, stronger.
Don't worry, it hasn't escaped our notice that all this is happening after Double XP Weekend. You'll still be able to get the 50% XP boost from blueprint discovery for the next two weeks.

Patch Notes

The patch notes for this week are on the lighter side as the team has collectively focused on delivering Invention batch 2. You can read them in the patch notes thread.

Enjoy!

We hope you enjoy your new playthings. Now go get tinkering!
