Colosseum NPC Clickboxes & More

Colosseum NPC Clickboxes & More

PSA: We're deploying a hotfix which reduces your chance to roll on the Undead Pirates' drop table from 50% to 15% if you have not completed the Wilderness Medium Diary. In the next Game Update, we'll also be removing Larran's keys from their loot.

We expect this change to allow our anti-cheating team more time to improve our detection tools and to action offences against the cheaters. We'll continue to monitor the content and make further changes if needed.

This week we have a handful of small updates as we get ourselves ready for While Guthix Sleeps!

Changelog June 26th

As we prepare for the launch of While Guthix Sleeps, we’re taking some time to fine-tune a few areas. Next week there will be no update, and while this means none of the usual downtime, we will be rebooting the worlds and swapping the PvP rota.

  • We've now improved clickboxes at the colosseum. This covers the Shockwave/Javelin Colossi, Warbanders, Serpent Shaman and Jaguar Warrior, with their shadow now being clickable, too!
  • In Bounty Hunter, the Teleport to Target Spell is now accessible via the Arceuus spellbook.
  • Updated the Kiss the Frog random event such that players no longer need to kiss the frog to get the rewards – the royals will be happy with a simple pat on the head. You are still able to choose to kiss the frog and transform into a frog as before.
  • Additionally, you may now choose between all rewards from this event regardless of which body type your character has.
  • Thessalia will now exchange extra Frog Tokens for XP Lamps.
  • The Ethereal Man or Woman in Lunar Diplomacy is now an Ethereal Being, and their body type will accurately match your character’s.
  • Added a handy Bronze Axe spawn to the muttadile room in the Chambers of Xeric raid, useable by main and iron accounts alike!
  • Probita can now look harder for missing pets if her first search failed for some reason.
  • Upper levels of the bat rooms in Chambers of Xeric should no longer render over the player character model.
  • TzHaar-Hur-Rin now has the same default stock quantities for all players regardless of account mode.
  • The word "heavy" no longer appears in daggers' combat style tooltips.
  • Improved dialogue and other text in Ratcatchers.

Deadman All Stars

On Saturday night we witnessed Old School history in the making! Six teams made up of 30 all-star creators battled it out to win the biggest grand slam we've ever seen, all orchestrated by Solo Mission.

Team captains Odablock, Solo Mission, Dino, Torvesta, B0aty and Faux lead their teams through 10 epic battles to see who would emerge as champions. Following a week of intense grinding and item gathering, the whole crew came together to deliver a battle for the ages. We streamed the finale live on our Twitch channel, with our own Mod Manked and special guest PureSpam expertly shoutcasting the event.

We wanted to thank all the contestants for stepping up to the plate and playing at their sweatiest, all in the name of victory! The biggest congratulations, of course, go to the winning team, Dino Nuggets, made up of Westham, Mika, Muts, Raikesy and of course, Dino. They faced off against the Odablock Warriors in the final, nail-biting round, and came out on top.

We also want to thank you for turning out in your droves to support the event, whether you were watching the Finale on our channel, or tuning into your favourite participant and cheering them on in their chat. This event made for the biggest viewership we've ever seen across all platforms - a monumental achievement!

If you didn't manage to watch it live, you can check in with Solo Mission himself for a catch up, or rewatch the whole thing via our Twitch channel. There's also this handy YouTube playlist of all the action leading up to the finale.
