Menaphos Birthday Celebrations

Menaphos Birthday Celebrations

It's Menaphos's 1st birthday! One year ago, on June 5th 2017, we opened the gates to Menaphos, the Golden City and, to celebrate the date, we've got a Menaphos-themed update for you this week.

If you login anytime this week, you will be given a Menaphos birthday gift box. Opening this box will give you:

  • A Magister teleport tablet and a free untradeable key to the crossing
  • 20 Feathers of Ma'at
  • A large Menaphite gift offering

In addition to receiving this gift, you’ll also see that the spawn rate for both soul obelisks and corrupted scarabs will be doubled throughout the entire month of June, until July 4th.

Increased Reputation Gain Rates

We’ve listened to your feedback and we’ve increased the rate you gain reputation.

From now on you will have a 1.25x reputation boost after completing the Jack of Spades quest. This boost will further increase with every quest you complete:

  • Crocodile Tears 1.5x modifier
  • Our Man in the North – 1.75x modifier
  • 'Phite Club – 2x modifier

Cursed Ushabti

We’ve also added a new item to the game – the cursed ushabti. You can create it by combining a normal ushabti with cursed Amascut sand, which has a chance of dropping from ripper demons, camel warriors, Acheron mammoths and living wyverns.

The new cursed ushabti increases the chance of catching souls by 50%, when compared to the normal ushabti.

General Menaphos Improvements

We’ve made a bunch of quality-of-life changes based on the feedback you gave us here.

Some highlights are:

  • Exchange clerks have been moved to be with the bankers in the Menaphos bank
  • Menaphite gift offerings are now stackable in your inventory and can be deposited into your bank
  • Handing in pyramid tops to Simon Templeton with the elite desert achievements completed will now give 10,000 coins per top

You can read all the changes in the full list of patch notes here.

Menaphos Pays Competition

Fancy some awesome signed Menaphos concept art? Have you been planning to achieve Tier 10 Menaphos reputation?

Well, here’s a competition for you: Mod Meadows has gone all around the office to try to get as many signatures as possible on some fancy A2 Menaphos concept art.

We’re giving away five pieces to a random bunch of you hard workers, celebrating the new reputation gain – and Menaphos’s birthday! Yippeee!

All you need is Tier 10 overall Menaphos reputation by the 25th of June, and you have a chance to win! Even if you already have it before today's rebalance, you will still be counted!

You can find out about our competition Terms and Conditions here!

You will be notified of your win, with instructions on what to do next via your ingame inbox. You have until June 25th to be counted!

Good luck Menaphites!
