[+] Boss Balancing


- The following changes have happened to Boss defences, these changes have been done and discussed in Staff meetings and Community feedback. We're aiming to force a new meta that allows us to move away from Blood barraging everything:

  • Nex: AOD remains weak to Magic
  • Telos remains weak to Magic
  • Vorago remains weak to Magic
  • Kalphite King is now substantially weaker to the combat triangle attacks opposed to his current form (Mage > Melee, Melee > Range, Range > Mage)
  • Corporeal beast is now substantially weak to Melee
  • Chaos Elemental is now weak to Range
  • King Black Dragon is now weak to Melee
  • Giant Mole is now weak to Melee
  • Helwyr is now weak to Melee
  • Vindicta & Gorvek is now weak to Range
  • Gregorovic is now weak to Range
  • Twin furies are now weak to Melee
  • General Graardor is now weak to Melee
  • Kree'arra is now weak to Range
  • Commander Zilyana is now weak to Range
  • K'ril Tsutsaroth is now weak to Melee 

These weaknesses make it so you're accurate using that style vs the specific boss, meaning, when using other styles, you will/can hit, but it will be much less likely than when using the correct combat style.

[+] Clue Scroll Update


- Treasure Trails now function close to exactly like Runescape 3. This includes:


Stackable Clue scroll boxes

You have a 1/10 chance to instantly complete a Master clue

[+] Group Ironman


Group ironmen seasons have been disabled. This has been in discussion for some time, amongst staff and players.

- Group Ironman/Casual are no where near completion. There's so much we want to expand on, including rewards you can purchase with your Group points, leaderboards/hiscores expansions etc.
