      Shutting Down Salvage   03/05/2018

      Well...I've always hoped I wouldn't have to make this post, but I think it's time. Unfortunately, I'm going to be shutting down the server.  I just don't have enough time to bring you all the content you deserve.  It really does suck because I've put a bunch of work into the server, the website, and everything else that goes along with it, but it's time to accept it.  Besides not having enough time to develop what needs to be developed, the multiple $300 15-day advertisements, expensive premium listings, and other forms of marketing weren't really working for us, so it's hard to have the motivation to continue. What kept me going was you all, the players.  I loved the reactions I received after each update and the overall support for wanting to see us grow.  Many of you all have donated to help keep the server running, and it worked out for a long time, but we were just never able to get over that 25 online threshold.  Regardless, thank you to our generous donators.  We would not have made it this far without you all.  I must say it again...thank you. At one time, our community was strong and it seemed like only a matter of time before we would grow bigger, but something happened and that time has passed.  Other servers nowadays are just too far ahead of us with OSRS content that it's hard to compete.  Let alone, OSRS has snagged a bunch of private server players again because of how much content Jagex's team is pumping into it.  As a one-owner/developer private server, it's just too much to keep up with.  These other servers have entire teams on payroll thanks to their years of success.  It's difficult to measure up to these guys starting out by myself and not having enough income to support a few other developers. As far as the future goes, my vision is muddy.  I would like to think I'd be able to re-launch the server in the future once I have more time, but as a full-time employee of a tech company where I do software development 40+ hours a week, I'd like my hobbies/free time to not include programming.  If I do re-launch, you'll receive an email saying so.  Until then, I recommend checking out some of these other servers which I've been playing around on to try to spawn some ideas: Battlescape - It's a nice old school server with a ton of new OSRS features, but they do seem to pad their player count (I literally counted 35 people when it said over 100 were online). Survive-RS - This is a brand new server with a bunch of potential.  It's a survival-style take on OSRS, where there's zombies all over the place and you have to eat to replensih energy and scavenge for your equipment.  It's currently in beta, so there are some bugs, but the gameplay is very fun.  I see some similar qualities to myself in the owner as well. *Note, I was not paid to link these...I just enjoyed playing them. The website will be up until the middle of April and I'll be taking the server offline today.  Thank you to everyone who brought wonderful suggestions to the game and an awesome personality to the community.  Maybe we'll see each other again on another go around.  On behalf of the rest of the Salvage staff, thank you and farewell.   -Justin

    What if, after you complete a task, there's a CHANCE your slayer master contacts you asking if you want to extend the task for some kind of extra reward? Could be double points or maybe something else?

    In-game Name: Mills - Main account -------------------------------------- Pure Pk - Pure account 4 lyfe - Ultimate Iron man ------------------------------------- Total Time Played (provide screenshot): Have you, or are you able to join our community Discord server? Yes, I am able to join the Discord server, I am currently already on the server, but will download to mobile phone as well, for more communication. Have you, or are you able to join our community Skype chat? I would have to setup a new skype account, but yes I would join the skype chat. Timezone: Eastern Time (ET) Age: 21. Staff Experience (Please do not disclose server names:) For this section of the application I do have plenty of server staff experience, as well as Ownership Experience. I have been staff a countless amount of times, and I am always close with staff with helping out either way, If I were to say "most experienced" I would be leaning towards Administrator/Administration. I also have been developers of forum sites and have forum CP knowledge. How many hours a day do you spend on Salvage? (2many) On average I try to play atleast 10hrs/day What time(s) are you usually on Salvage? (e.g 3am-7am) My current situation with being online salvage PS, is quite open, My girlfriend leaves for school in the morning around 7:15AM(ET) and i'm most of the time on right until 3PM(ET) doing multiple things and being very into the game. After 3PM(ET) I am still online but just not talking as much in general conversation, but questions I answer as soon as I see them, as I am most the time relaxing with the girlfriend watching Netflix until she goes to bed, 8:00-9:30PM then I play for another hour. Are there any days that you are unable to play Salvage? This one, I cannot answer, as I try to come on everyday. so, my answer would be, if something comes up short notice. Have you ever been warned or infracted by a staff member on Salvage? (If yes, please explain.): I have not. (that I can think of) What 5 qualities do you feel you possess that will make you an exemplary Salvage staff member? 1) Active 2) Started playing runescape back in like 2003-2004, Have lots of insight and knowledge of the runescape base. 3) Always trying to help players and always engaging myself in general chats. 4) A very friendly person. Always putting people first, before myself. 5) A strong mind, to keep the rules intact. In 3 short paragraphs, why do you feel you are right for the position you wish to acquire?: I believe that becoming a staff member of salvage-ps will be something that wont be second guessed or regretted. as I am very active , and I hope to become one of the staff members everyone can come to for help. Active to help out. I can rush on, to do testing/bugfinds, I'm always on the lookout for bugs/glitches to help improve the community. I really want to see is this server grow enormously, and I would love to become a part of the team, and with the amount of hours played aday, I could be a real asset for buggers and abusers within salvage-ps. (best I can do, as I suck at writing paragraphs about myself.) What do you hope to achieve if you are promoted?: What I hope to achieve is success for salvage-ps, I want to see this server grow, as I love the community and the playbase of this server, I will always try my best to make all new players love the community and make them want to stay, and it just goes on and on. If there is one rule you wish to change or address, what rule would it be? (Must answer) There really isn't any rule that I would think about changing or addressing, but this is about the closest I would get. and my opinion would be maybe after 1hr of birds being around you, and you don't move, you get logged out. (would have too fix some skills, ex; woodcutting for edz. when woodcutting birds come around you. and if in edz you' wouldn't beable to afk overnight and woodcut.) How do you feel about respect, loyalty, and rule enforcement as a staff member? Respect and Loyalty upon players is a MUST. especially towards staff members. Rule enforcement is no hassle for me, as I want to see this server grow, and we cannot have unappreciated players ruining that for us, rules will keep the server looking clean and make the gameplay that much better. ------- about the best I can write about my self, if any questions or acquires feel free to ask, as I'm not shy and am optimistic.

Check it out! (I'll be adding a quick teleport button soon so you don't have to click on the magic tab first)

    GUYS! I have amazing news! I was able to nab a Runelocus ad! If you don't know, these are active for 30 days or more and are EXTREMELY competitive to get. It was a lot of money, but you all helped pay for it with your generous donations. I expect this to grow our player base a ton, so I need everyone online and welcoming new players as much as you can. Our loyal community has been around for a long time and we know all we really lack is players. Once people see the quality of the server, I'm sure many will stay IF they see enough players online. We have an okay player base, but a lot of you all are in different time zones so it hurts the "appearance" lol. Let's hope this ad grows our community and brings some wonderful accounts and suggestions to our server. Thank you all for being you. ~Justin

    Hey everyone! It's been a solid month since I've been active thanks to that business trip and CoD WW2 coming out, but I'm back! I've been working behind the scenes on getting Zulrah finished to really come back with a bang. Zulrah will drop the toxic blowpipe, of course, but there's also some other things I have in the works that will really be exciting. I won't really be online until I get this all finished, but I plan on seeing a lot of you back online here soon! Thanks for sticking with us while I've been gone. I appreciate everyone's patience. ~Justin

    Hey everyone! Huge update today with some amazing content! Enjoy! Added Elite Clue Scrolls! Elite clue scrolls work in the following ways: You can receive them as a clue scroll reward from any tier (except Elite). You can receive them as a drop from certain bosses (check ::drops) You can only have one at a time. You must complete and turn in your clue scroll or drop and destroy it to receive another. A clue is considered complete when you receive your reward casket. There are four different types of Elite Clue Scrolls: Kill Task: This clue will require you to complete a specific kill task (sort of like slayer, but a little different). After completing the clue, speak with Kuradel (Slayer Master tele or Ancient Cavern tele) to claim your reward. Donation Task: This clue will require you to donate some mid-tier item to the Well of Goodwill. Upon using the required item on the well, you will be given your reward casket. Gather Resources Task: This clue will require you to gather fresh resources and turn them in for your reward. You must actually do the work to gather these resources and not just hand them over after buying them from a shop or pulling them from your bank. Speak to the specified NPC to claim your reward. Acquire Points Task: This clue will require you to gain x amount of points in a certain category. Just like the Gather Resources clues, these points must be newly-gained. Speak to the specified NPC to claim your reward. There are three new achievements associated with completing these clues. Progress will be tracked in the description of the clue, so if you aren't sure how you're doing, read the clue again and it'll tell you. OPENING ELITE CASKETS IS TEMPORARILY DISABLED TO GIVE ME TIME TO ADD MORE REWARDS - KEEP THE CASKETS TO COMPETE IN THE CONTEST Added achievements for solving elite clues Added Hide N Seek minigame! Admin+ staff members can start a hide and seek minigame that auto-generates server messages! It's all formal now! Corrected Zulrah's teal phase to attack with both mage and range Fixed issue where players couldn't range Zulrah from the safe spot behind pillar without stepping into the gas Put in possible fix for issue where Zulrah gets stuck on one phase and doesn't attack. Fixed bug that made adamant bolts when attempting to craft ruby bolts Re-ordered players online interface to better represent rank hierarchy Added big fish catching to fishing! There's currently a 1/250 chance to catch a big bass, big swordfish, or big shark. These were inteded to be wieldable items, but I didn't add the final models into the cache...so if you get one now, enjoy the model glitch! Added achievement for catching a big fish Added "::dropparty" (or "::dp") command! Use this to teleport to the drop party building in Seer's Village Added "::votespecial" command for staff! Staff, use this command to remind players of the current voting special offer. Fixed issue where shops with limited quantities of non-stackable items wouldn't lose stock when items were purchased Fixed issue where players could not claim their last vote point of the day Added new server message and modified old ones Modified more item prices and quantities in shops Minor text changes

    EVERYONE! IT'S FINALLY HERE! Added Zulrah boss to the game! Enjoy this new boss, as it's taken a lot of time to develop and is as true to Runescape as I was able to get it. Any feedback/bug reports are very much appreciated. Please add bugs here. Added special item characteristics for Serpentine helm and its colored variants. See Item Characteristics thread. Buffed K'ril Tsutsuroth in all stats Fixed issue where player couldn't walk to location clicked on far outside of minimap New players no longer auto-join the "Help" clan chat. Be aware of this when trying to welcome them or yell, as some people may not be in the CC. Changed transform effect of Easter Ring and Ring of Stone to equip action instead of operate. Fixed issue where other players could not see that other players have transformed with an Easter Ring or Ring of Stone. Added right-click functionality for Java 9 users (Still recommend using Java 8, as the client looks odd on Java 9 - currently working on a fix for that)

    MINING GUIDE by KABOOYAH 1. INTRODUCTION Start off by teleporting to the Mining Camp. This can be achieved by clicking on the Mining skill in your skill tab. Select "Teleport: Mining Camp". In this area you will find all the rocks ranging from Copper up to Rune and also a bank. First go to the Mining Instruction. Buy the Bronze and Rune Pickaxe Equip the Bronze Pickaxe and add the Rune Pickaxe to your toolbelt. See image: Alright, now you are ready to level up your Mining 2. REGULAR TRAINING As mentioned before, in the Mining Area you will find all the rocks that you need ranging from Copper up to Rune. In the table below, you will find a overview of the XP gained per ore and the required ore that needs to be collected to reach level 99. Note the different Donator Multiplier levels. Start mining the ores and bank them when filled up in the nearby bank EXPERIENCE PER ORE TOTAL ORES NEEDED 3. STARDUST TRAINING (PERSONAL PREFERENCE) It is also possible to start collecting Stardust when you've reached level 80. Star Dust can be used to buy a Dragon Pickaxe (500 Stardust), Coal (2 Stardust) Godsword Blade (3000 Stardust) or a Barrows Set (5000 Stardust) at the Stardust Shop in the Mining Camp. Stardust can be collected by mining a Crashed Star. The Crashed Star is one of the random events on the server. It spawns every now and then in a random location in the world. You will be notified if a new Crashed Star is located in the chat box. You can also check the Quest Tab to see if there is a Crashed Star, and if so, the location is mention too. Teleport to the location and start mining the Star. You wil receive loads of Gems so you will probably have to bank now and then. There is also a chance of getting an uncut Onyx. The amount Stardust that you get from a Crashed Star can reach up to roughly 1000 Stardust if you solo it. The reason why I prefer this method compared to the traditional method, is that you can get items like Barrows and a Dragon Pickaxe. But more importantly, this method is WAY WAY WAY more AFK'ble compared to the previous method. And the amount of XP gained is quite decent! GOOD LUCK!

    WOODCUTTING GUIDE by KABOOYAH 1. INTRODUCTION Start off by teleporting to the beginners Woodcutting area. This can be achieved by clicking on the Woodcutting skill in your skill tab. Select "Teleport: Low-Level Woodcutting". In this area you will find Trees, Oak Trees, Willow Trees and Maple Trees. But also the Wilfred the Lumberjack who sells hatchets. Buy the Bronze and Rune hatchet. Equip the Bronze hatchet and add the Rune Hatchet to your toolbelt. See image: If you want you can also get a Dragon Hatchet (level 61) which is dropped by the Dagganoth Kings (or buy it of course). Alright, now you are ready to level up your Woodcutting 2. TRAINING As mentioned before, in the Low Level Woodcutting Area you will find Trees (level 1), Oak Trees (level 15), Willow Trees (level 30) and Maple Trees (level 55). Yew (level 60) and Magic Trees (level 75) can be found in the High Level Woodcutting Area. The Magic Elite logs can only be found in the Diamond+ Donator Area. In the table below, you will find a overview of the XP gained per log and the required logs that needs to be collected to reach level 99. Note the different Donator Multiplier levels. You will get Magic Logs in noted form if you chop down a Magic Elite tree, hence the relatively lower XP rate. Since these are not available for <Diamond Donators there is no XP rate for the other Ranks. EXPERIENCE PER LOG TOTAL LOGS NEEDED GOOD LUCK!

    Zogres & Skogres Minigame Guide The purpose of this minigame is to get ogre coffin keys in order to get an ogre artifact. To start the minigame click on Minigame Teleport in the teleports tab and click Zogres & Skogres on the Teleports interface. Once you are there kill either Zogres or Skogres (both combat lvl: 44) to get ogre coffin keys. I highly recommend having a bonecrusher for this minigame, the keys are hard to see on the ground when their bones are also on the ground. You will then open the Ogre Coffins located at the east end of the minigame area with those keys. Each key has a 3 in 29 chance of getting you an Ogre Artifact as a reward. Other rewards includes various bones, herbs, and a zombie outfit. This minigame is a great source of prayer and herblore exp! The Ogre artifact has the following effect: Deal double damage to Slash Bash while the Ogre Artifact is in your inventory. Upon killing him, the artifact will be destroyed and you have a chance to receive a special drop. Once you have obtained the Ogre Artifact it's time to kill Slash Bash. To get to Slash Bash click on the Boss Teleport in the teleports tab and click Slash Bash on the Teleport interface. When you kill Slash Bash it will consume your Ogre Artifact and give you a chance at a drop from his special drop table. If you get really lucky you might get a Heavy Ballista or a Ruined Backpack! Stats for Heavy Ballista: The ruined backpack allows you to store 5 items inside while only using 1 inventory space. Good Luck!

    I see, truthfully this rule probably needs to be reviewed and changed seeing as how after a certain amount of time being afk you no longer gain loyalty points, the second part of the rule says play time farming, in my eyes I can't see how that can affect the server in any way. I will alert staff of potential afk'ers mining the star, this is something we can keep an eye on moving forward, as well as checking potential afk'ers and kicking them if we deem it necessary. Thanks.

    I may not be on often, but my playtime as of current does not show my joy for this server, I enjoy it a lot, just don't have the free time I need to play right now! I will be around in game A LOT more after my 2 week vacation in Cyprus on the 18th of this month. I need no thanks for my donations, your dedication to keeping the server alive and updated are all the thanks I need.

Good luck and thank you for your votes!

    You may have seen a server announcement in-game here and there reminding you to vote, but some of you may have never thought to vote before. There are plenty of benefits involved in voting to warrant your time and energy. Benefits for you: Claim votes using ::reward 1 <the number of votes you wish to claim> Each vote you claim rewards you with a vote book, which you can sell to other players or claim yourself. Each book rewards you with 1m gp, 1 vote point, and 10 minutes of bonus xp. Vote points can be used at the vote shop which contains the following items: Each vote you claim gives you a 5% chance to receive a mystery box as well! Votes are tallied each month per player, and starting in March, we will be holding monthly voting contests! The top 3 voters will receive extra vote books at the end of month to claim and use in store! 1st place: 100 vote books (100m coins, 100 points, and 1,000 minutes of bonus xp!) 2nd place: 50 vote books (50m coins, 50 points, and 500 minutes of bonus xp!) 3rd place: 25 vote books (25m coins, 25 points, and 250 minutes of bonus xp!) Claiming votes is actually an achievement for comp cape, so if you want to comp, there's some extra motivation. Voting a lot means you're dedicated to the server and you wish to see it grow. Being part of that growth is very important when being considered for any staff position. Benefits for the Server: The more votes a server has, the higher it shows up on the different top lists. Top list searchers looking for a new server to play typically either scan through the top 10-15 servers or the servers that have only a few votes and are brand new. Players either want an established server where everything is ready for them or they want to get on a young server and get their foot in the door to have a better chance at becoming staff. Currently, we're right under the top on most top lists. Your constant voting can help us inch higher and higher until we obtain newer players who will do the same. Many RSPS players are aware that most servers now have automatic vote rewards. This is a nice selling point for them, so when they see a server with a bunch of votes, they think that the server must not only be good enough for people to vote for it, but they think it must have great voting benefits. If you love the game and would like to see it grow, please consider voting twice a day. Thank you!

    You are absolutely right with initial player retention. People log in, stay for 5 minutes and leave. I am not sure if everyone is AFK will completely help tho, since no one will respond to their messages. Also I think it would help if you bring back the function that people automatically join the 'help' CC. Since if people are in convo in this CC they immediately see that there is activity on the server if you know what I mean. They are more prone to interact with other players and ask questions etc to see if they like the server or not.

    In-game Name: PureParadox Total Time Played (provide screenshot): 30 Hours Have you, or are you able to join our community Discord server? Yes Have you, or are you able to join our community Skype chat? No, but I am able to Timezone: Mountain Standard Time, UTC -7 Age:19 Staff Experience (Please do not disclose server names): Head admin/mod on teamspeak, minecraft, garry's mod, and discord servers. How many hours a day do you spend on Salvage? I always get in at least about an hour a day if not more. I can end up spending upwards of 6 in one day as well. What time(s) are you usually on Salvage? (e.g 3am-7am) about 11:30am-1:00pm, and 6pm-12:00am are my usual times to be able to get on Are there any days that you are unable to play Salvage? Only when I've had a hard day at work/busy day at work and need to sleep, work, or if i have family events. Have you ever been warned or infracted by a staff member on Salvage? (If yes, please explain.): No What 5 qualities do you feel you possess that will make you an exemplary Salvage staff member? 1) I've made friends in the community 2) I do my best to help any and all members 3) I grew up with runescape so I feel I have a good overall knowledge of runescape itself 4) I engage myself in the chats 5) I also have good overall judgement with enforcing rules In 3 short paragraphs, why do you feel you are right for the position you wish to acquire?: I see things that could be improved upon and things that are happening that could use work. I want to be one of those people who help make those positive changes possible. I think I have a pretty level head on my shoulders, and can help this server skyrocket with the amount of help and suggestions i can bring to the table. I'm not necessarily picky as to what role I get, as long as I can help this community grow to be a very successful and fun one. I am always willing to help if I can with whatever needs to be done/tested/etc. I'm always contactable (for the most part), and I grew up with runescape, so why wouldn't I want to become a staff member on a server for what was probably my favorite game to play growing up? I strongly believe that me becoming a part of the Salvage RSPS staff would be something that this server wont regret, and I hope to become one of the staff members everyone can come to for help with absolutely anything relating to the servers. What do you hope to achieve if you are promoted?: As previously stated I hope to help this server skyrocket in success. If there is one rule you wish to change or address, what rule would it be? (Must answer) There isn't a rule that i wish to change or address really, I just want to help the server grow and develop. How do you feel about respect, loyalty, and rule enforcement as a staff member? I feel that respect and loyalty are no-brainers that are a must have for staff, and rule enforcement is my job as a bus monitor for my local school district, as well as being staff on other servers, so i'm already very used to having to enforce rules. Thank you for your time and consideration, PureParadox (Spencer)

    Hey all, as you see, I've moved the navigation items around a bit to better accommodate smaller screens. The Play Now button is now extra exciting with an added exclamation point (!), as well as bold text. The order of the items now better reflects their importance as well. Thanks to @Jon and @Virtus for the suggestion.

    Hey everyone! Here's the updates for 1-29-18. These updates are all in an effort to create a better economy for the players and encourage skilling. If you think we may have gone too far with the shop item removal, please let us know. Ideally, this system will work when we have a bit more players with plenty of items to sell, but I'm going to see how it works for now. Balanced some item prices and removed multiple items from shops Reduced quantity of certain items in shops Added dragon dart and dragon arrow drops to Salvage's most dangerous bosses Added dragon darts to casket rewards Added casket to loyalty points store Added new items to stardust shop Changed smithing bolt making to make unfinished bolts instead of completed bolts Added bolt making - now add feathers to unfinished bolts to create usable ammo Added bolt tip making - use a chisel or the chisel in your tool belt on different gems to create bolt tips Added enchanted bolt making - use bolt tips on finished bolts to create enchanted bolts Added oysters to big net fishing rewards for player to be able to make pearl bolts Added two new achievements related to making bolt tips and enchanted bolts Minor text fixes

    THIEVING GUIDE by KABOOYAH Credits - @jdmmills & @Virtus 1. INTRODUCTION Thieving is one the most straightforward skills out there, but still there are some things that might be useful for you to know. 2. TRAINING LOCATIONS There are two main training locations: near the home teleport (or just use thieving teleport) and one the donor zone (::dz). Both locations have the same stands. The only difference between the thieving spot at home and at donorzone is that you can also steal rune items from a Rune Armour stand which gives quite good XP at the donorzone. The Rune Armour stand gives several different Rune items. For example: Rune kiteshields, boots, full helm, plate etc. If you have a donorstatus you will not only have access to the Rune Armour Stand but also all the things that you steal from any stall (except for the Rune Armour Stand) will be noted. This makes it much easier for you to level up obviously. This also works on the stalls at the Regular Thieving Location. It must be noted that there is also a Rune Armour stand in the Extreme Donorzone. This gives you cash instantly instead of the items, which saves you some banking time. So this is the best way to get to 200m XP, since by the time you are an Extreme Donor you probably already have 99 Thieving 3. TRAINING EXPERIENCE The table below shows the amount of experience you will get per stall and money you will earn per item. This translates to the following amount of items that you will need to steal: The items which you steal can be sold to the guy standing right next to the stalls. Thieving is not the best way to make money, but it does makes some money. The table below shows how much money you will make. Note that the Rune Armour stand is not included do to the variances in prices. GOOD LUCK!

    With Justins recent teaser of max exp capes on discord: I thought another great incentive for players to get 200m in certain skills would be an added benefit for reaching 200m exp in that skill. Some examples of this could include: 200m Prayer = Prayer points reduce at half the normal rate. 200m Herblore = You no longer take damage when drinking an overload potion. 200m Attack = You are more likely to land a successful attack on your opponent. (Does not work in pvp) 200m Strength = You have a small chance to overpower your enemy causing their defense to decrease. (Does not work in pvp) 200m Defense = You take 5% reduced damage. (Does not work in pvp) 200m Range = You have a greater chance of not consuming ammo. 200m Magic = You have a 25% chance to not consume runes when casting a spell. For gathering skills such as mining I would not want this to have a serious negative effect on the economy so I would suggest a scaling reward, such as: when mining tin or copper you would have a high chance of receiving additional ores when mining and this chance and the amount of additional ores you would receive decreases as you move up in ore tiers, so when getting to runeite ore you would have a 10% chance to receive one additional ore. Other skills such as firemaking or crafting are a little harder to have an incentive as there isn't much use for them outside of getting experience. Obviously all of these suggestions are just quick examples to illustrate my idea and would ultimately be decided by Justin and Eyan, but I would love to hear what you think and any suggestions for potential 200m exp rewards, Thanks! Edit: I agree that none of these benefits should work in pvp settings, and am open to the idea of having the benefit only apply when the respective cape is worn (although that's an annoying amount of capes to own.)

    Salvage-PS currently contains items that holds some special characteristics which many new players might not know about. They would either have to hear about the characteristics from other players, learn about them themselves, or look back at the update logs to see what I've added to them. This guide will aim to alleviate that headache and explain what each item has to offer. Drygore Rapier/Drygore Longsword: Drygore weaponry currently has 1.25x the bonuses as their primal counterparts. This means they are, by far, the best melee weapons in the game. Full Slayer Helmet: While wearing a full slayer helmet, your max hit will increase by 12% for any combat style. Works on and off task. Hybrid Armor Sets: Wearing a complete hybrid armor set (Vanguard, Trickster, or Battle-Mage) increases your potential max hit for the armor's primary combat style by 40% and the armor's secondary combat style by 20%. Magic Fang: Attach to Staff of the Dead or Trident of the Seas to create it's venomous counter-part Nex Armor Sets: Wearing a complete Nex armor set (Torva, Pernix, or Virtus) increases your potential max hit by 20%. Magic Secateurs: 83.33% chance to harvest each consecutive herb (after three herbs) instead of 75% chance from regular secateurs. Can be equipped or in inventory. Ogre Artefact: Deal double damage to Slash Bash while the Ogre Artefact is in your inventory. Upon killing him, the artefact will be destroyed and you have a chance to receive a special drop. Penance Boots: In the Wilderness, your run energy will deplete. While wearing Penance Boots, your run energy will never deplete. Penance Gloves: While wearing Penance Gloves, any special attack accuracy bonus from another player will be eliminated. Queen's Secateurs: 87.5% chance to harvest each consecutive herb (after three herbs) instead of 75% chance from regular secateurs. Must be in inventory. Ring of Fire: 1.5x Firemaking xp when equipped Ring of Forging: 100% chance to successfully smelt iron bar and 2x Smithing xp for smelting when equipped Ring of Wealth: Increases chance of getting rare or better drops by...a pretty substantial amount... Serpentine Helmet: Protects the wearer against poison/venom damage and increases potential max hit against NPCs by 12%. Serpentine Visage: Chisel into Serpentine Helmet Slayer Helmet/Hexcrest/Focus Sight: While wearing either of these items, your potential max hit against NPCs will increase by 12% for the given combat style (Slayer Helmet = Melee, Hexcrest = Magic, Focus Sight = Ranged). Works on and off task. Tanzanite/Magma Helmet: Counts as a valid helm for any equipment set (minus Barrows sets). Untradeable, so not lost upon death in PVP. Protects the wearer against poison/venom damage and increases potential max hit against NPCs by 12%. Tanzanite/Magma Mutagen: Use on a serpentine helmet to recolor it Toxic Staff of The Dead: Deals venom damage as well as normal combat spell damage Trident of the Seas: Has a built-in combat spell which deals slightly less damage than Ice Barrage, with no rune cost Trident of the Swamp: Has a built-in combat spell which deals slightly less damage than Ice Barrage, with no rune cost, plus deals venom damage *Keep watching this list, as others are sure to be added!

    Hey guys, "4ourth" (unsure of in-game name) shared the Group Legend plugin with me on discord. I had been looking to add this plugin since I made the site, but was never able to find it. I must have been searching for the wrong words. Anyways, thanks to him for supplying that. View it at the bottom of the home screen or view it below in this post and let me know what you think! Thanks.

    Nice guide, good to see a few more up now. 2 thoughts I had: Might want to add that you can trade in agility tickets for exp and that the exp your recieve from trading them in scales with all bonus exp (brawlers, vote book, well of goodwill, and weekend bonus, donor rank bonus.) Also I'm not sure how accurate the lap completion exps you have listed are since it scales with all bonus exp as well, if those are the base amounts might want to add a note that they will vary based on bonus exp. But overall great job Brad the legend!

    Hello everyone, here i am to suggest to extend Slayer task's from 20 kills +-, to 40-60 so you can stay longer at your slayer spot, and also with this change points u get from a task will be Adapted to monsters you have killed.

    Also, I want it to be known this is a guide to pricing, not the actually prices for all items in game, prices in game can be subject to change based off of demands of the sellers and the consumers, this is just a good guideline.

    Hey everyone, here's the updates for 9-28-17! They're pretty small, but took a little bit of ingenuity and time to make. Plus, they're pretty neat! I hope you enjoy! Added a ton of implings throughout the world. Catch them outside of Puro Puro and the donator zones for TRIPLE xp! Added barehanded impling catching! Now you can catch implings anywhere with or without a net and impling jar. Made ring of forging work (a common reward from implings) properly. There's now a 100% chance to make iron bars when equipped, plus double xp on any bar smelted! Added Kraken to Sumona slayer tasks Ensured all activities at EDZ cannot be done by staff teleporting there unless they meet the requirements.

    Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I've been working on something BIG. It's something a ton of you have asked for, and it's going to be a great addition to the server. I've been working on it for quite a while now, and am to a point where I feel confident I'm going to be able to finish it. Unfortunately, I'll be away this weekend, so it'll be at least Monday before I can continue to work on it. I hope you all are ready for: DROP TABLES! I also have some smaller updates coming along with that, so stay tuned for those. I didn't want to leave you all high and dry with no updates for a couple weeks, so here's my explanation. I hope you all enjoy the drop tables when they're released cuz they've proven to be a real bitch to make. Lol I'll keep you all updated!
