      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

    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!

    If you're ever online when @Virtus is online, there's no doubt you've seen a few solid roasts from one player to another. This contest will allow you to post the best roasts you see throughout Salvage. Terms of the contest: Post a screenshot of the roast you've been involved in...whether you're the roasted or the one doing the roasting, post that screenshot here. Post as many submissions as you like, as long as you're involved in them. You have until noon E.S.T. on October 6th to post your best roast. The topic will auto-lock at that time. Winner will be selected by the number of likes on their reply. Rewards: Roasted winner will be given the in-game "ROASTED" title, while the one who performed the roast will be given the "ROASTMASTER" title. Both parties involved will receive a donation scroll for their efforts, and overall depression. Extra points for double, triple, or quad+ kills. If you can get it in a single screenshot, we wanna see it. I can definitely see this being a reoccurring contest on this server. We'll see how this goes. Happy Roasting! Don't get butthurt if you become the victim!

    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.
