      Multiple Ads Means NEW Players!   01/12/2018

      Hey guys! Thanks to you all and your support and generous donations, we've been able to drop some serious coin on some new advertisements for the server.  We're now advertising on Runelocus, Moparscape, RSPSServer, AND RSPSPage!  This means multiple players from multiple different top list sites will be able to find our server and join our community.  We've been struggling on the player count a bit these last few weeks, but I know some of you are away for just a bit. If you can, please be online to help welcome these new players and show them how awesome of a server we really have!  Many of us know, the only thing we really lack is a good player base, and unfortunately, many players don't stick around after they join because they often see 8 people online.  Those who do stick around for more than a few seconds start to appreciate the craftsmanship put into developing this server and actually give it a chance.  Please help these new players feel welcomed so we can start overcoming this plateau! As always, we're very grateful for your continued support and loyalty to our server.   With love, Salvage-PS Staff Team

    Since I did the Craft a Serp helm , will I need to get another? Or just buy a ticket?

    You'll have to get another.  They aren't that rare of a drop, so you'll be fine :)

    Are you possibly able to disassemble the serp helm?

     I know for the Magic fang one, that was possible, but since I don't have a helm myself, it's the only one available for me to disassemble and reassemble.   

     I know the Upgraded Fire cape, can be the Tok cape achieved either way, from Vote shop or Jad and Self-upgraded. As the code probably looks just for item name, and Not, has Upgraded a firecape via tokkul. 

    If you took a chisel to a rock, do you think you could put it back together?  Nah, fam.  But yes, you just have to equip the Tok cape.


  2. Hey everyone!  Here's the updates for 1-15-18!

    • Added 120 capes for players who have achieved max XP in the respective skills. Buy them from the Wise Old Man at home.  (Particle effects and Max XP perks coming soon!)
    • Fixed Hunter brawling gloves (was counting for Construction instead)
    • Added Melee, Ranged, and Magic brawling gloves - dropped by revs
    • Added "Equip An Upgradeable Fire Cape", "Craft A Serpentine Helmet", and "Attach A Magic Fang To A Weapon" achievements
    • Modified drop announcement message to also say the number of drops received (high-tier donators have chance to get double rare drops)
    • Added a few items to drop announce list that should have been on there from the start
    • Fixed issue where players with bank pins couldn't reset their password without deleting their pin
    • Fixed issue where players couldn't right click-trade boss point shop guy
    • Fixed bug where words typed into drop table interface would also be spoken in public chat
    • Fixed scroll wheel pan issue introduced with last client update

    Enjoy!  Be looking for some Zulrah bug fixes soon!

  4. There already is a very rare item with the addition of Zulrah.  Tanzanite Mutagen and Magma Mutagen drops are extremely rare, and once applied to a serpentine helm, it gives the player a helmet that:

    1. maintains set effect for any set besides barrows sets
    2. protects the wearer against poison and venom
    3. gives 12% bonus damage towards monsters (like slayer helm)
    4. is untradable, so is not lost on death

    so, qbd...? but I don't think that is a good idea.

    - way too overpowered would defeat every glove ingame

    - mage is also more used then melee imo. melee is weakest style

    n gloves should not give p bonus..  ur idea are pretty much op peneance gloves

     

     

    An extremely rare object can never be too overpowered.  Also, I'd beg to differ that melee is the weakest style.  Max gear with melee can be extremely deadly.  You haven't tried Vanguard and Drygores.


  5. I really like the idea of adding an incentive to max xp.  Whether or not the boost should happen if the player is wearing the cape or not would be decided on the strength of the bonuses for each one.  Maybe combat skill master capes only provide the bonus of the one you're wearing, while non-combat are permanent.  Either way, I think something like this could be a great idea.

     I honestly think this is a bad idea, player's should'nt get boosted like that otherwise new players are to far from us (weak armors,weak weapons, and weak bonuses if this is added), BUT if we talk a little bit about mage and ranged i think bolts and runes prices should be 20% lower , since they costs that much

    This possibly brings up a good point, because high-level players already have significant bonuses, but there's little to no competition for pvm right now anyway, so it wouldn't matter.  When that competition becomes a bit more prevalent when we get more players, these little bonuses are going to be the difference in who gets the drop.  In certain skills, 200m xp is a huge accomplishment, so I don't see a reason why these players should get something extra.

  6. Modified links on top list widget to include incentive callback url parameters.  Now, you can vote directly from those buttons, then claim the auth codes from the auths tab on the vote page.  Unfortunately, three of the vote services do not provided callbacks still, and this is because the vote service has been deprecated.  I'm looking into getting a new vote service for us or writing my own.


  7. 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)

  8. 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.

  9. Hey guys!  I just wanted to give you an update on my Zulrah development.  As some of you know, I'm creating a 100% true-to-Runescape Zulrah.  I'm about 98% done with development and I'm just working out a few kinks, so expect an update with Zulrah VERY soon!  In the mean time, grind out getting a Staff of the Dead drop from K'ril or a Trident of the Seas drop from Kraken because you'll want one of those when you get a magic fang drop from Zulrah!  Keep the suggestions coming and thank you all for being so loyal to this server.

  10. Hey everyone!  This update has been a long time coming.  I've now added a 100% custom top list widget on our home page!  Now you can see where we stand among the rest on certain top lists.  Please vote regularly, and if you see us falling behind on a certain top list, please vote on that one, if you don't vote on anyone else!  Having a higher spot on the top lists help us gain more players, which helps the server grow.  Soon, I'll make a way to view the top list rank history over time for each of the top lists.

    Also, I've added the www CNAME to our DNS settings, so now you can access the site via www.salvageps.com.

    Thanks, and be looking for a server update in a couple of days!

  12. 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.
