Good Morning, Zaros!
 
Today's update takes a break from 1:1 OSRS features and adds a variety of new custom content for players to enjoy on Zaros. Have a read over the patch notes and let us know what you think in the comments below!
 
Town Board:
  • After a bit of brainstorming on implementation, longevity, and rewards -- we're finally proud to bring you a daily task system, now known as the "Town Board".
  • Can be accessed in edgeville by visiting the town board object.
  • Rundown of Mechanics:
    • There are a total of 6 task slots that can be utilized. The first three are available to all players while the last three are locked behind donator ranks; regular, extreme, and legendary respectively.
    • Tasks shown on the town board are permanent until the player either:
      1. Right clicks and chooses "Reject" - this will delete the task and make room for another to take its place once the task rotation timer finishes.
      2. Completes and turns in the task.
    • Task rotation is every four hours. If you are currently in the process of working on a task or still have one occupying a slot while a task rotation takes place, a new task will queue up behind the current one. This is to not penalize players for missing a rotation period while still working on a task.
    • Tasks consist of a variety of skilling and combat activities, some which require you to bring materials back to the town board to turn in. These items can be in noted form when turned in.
    • Each task completed grants town board experience and points.
  • Leveling:
    • The town board features a leveling system from 0-100 (with room to expand in the future). Since experience is time-gated, reaching max level should take between 1-3 months depending on active server bonuses, time played, and donator status. Players can click on the "Levels" button to view permanent unlocks they'll receive when leveling up the town board every 5 levels.
      • You can view a picture of all Town Board unlocks here.
      • Special Notes:
        • Pet/Drop Rate Increases: These are cumulative and stack with other bonuses such as server events and your game mode bonus.
        • Boss Casket: These will not show up on the drop table viewer on boss tables until you have reached level 90 to unlock them.
  • Points:
    • Points earned through completing tasks can be spent at the exchange. Some items have no requirements while others will require both points and a certain town board level to purchase. All items are currently untradeable. Point prices for each item are not final and may be adjusted in the next update based on feedback:
      • Level 0+:
        • Twisted & Trailblazer banner
        • Twisted & Trailblazer cane
        • Barrows Re-roll (x5) - Take these with you on your barrows trip to re-roll for loot. You can re-roll an infinite amount of times, provided you have enough of these with you.
      • Level 25+:
        • Trailblazer Globe
        • CoX Room Skip Scroll - Take these with you on non-challenge mode raids to auto-complete rooms (besides olm). Upon using a skip scroll, achievements and speed-records are disabled for the current raid.
      • Level 50+:
        • Twisted & Trailblazer Relic Hunter (t1)
      • Level 75+:
        • Twisted & Trailblazer Relic Hunter (t2)
      • Level 100+:
        • Twisted & Trailblazer Relic Hunter (t3)
        • Trailblazer graceful ornament kit
        • Trailblazer tool ornament kit
        • Custom Pet - Postie Pete
  • New Player Titles:
    • Worker - Town Board Level 50
    • Eager Beaver - Town Board Level 75
    • Multi Tasker - Town Board Level 100

New Instance Bosses:
  • Can be accessed through the teleporter under the bosses category. These bosses are UNSAFE for hardcore ironman players. Should anyone die in these instances, a gravestone will appear outside of the perspective entrance.
  • Judge of Yama:
    • Can be fought every 24 hours. This will reset globally at 0:00 UTC each day.
    • Mechanics:
      • Upon entering the fight, players must dodge oncoming waves of fire that the judge throws to slowly inch themselves closer in order to deal damage.
      • Immune to magical and ranged attacks. Use melee to effectively kill him.
      • Twice during the fight at 75% and 25% health the judge will teleport the player back to the end of the boardwalk, requiring them to dodge fire waves to reach him again.
    • Drops:
      • Cosmetic Mystery Boxes
      • Game Bonus Scrolls
      • Coins (250k-500k)
      • Barrows Re-rolls
      • CoX Room Skip Scrolls
  • Xamphur:
    • Can be fought infinitely. Offers two difficulties; normal and challenge. Challenge offers similar mechanics as the original with increased health, damage, defence, and better loot.
    • Mechanics:
      • On initially spawning, xamphur will spawn pools that will inflict mark of darkness upon stepping on or over them. The number of pools is greater in challenge mode. Marks of darkness increase the accuracy of Xamphur's basic attack.
      • Basic attack: Grasp spells from the arceuus spellbook
      • Special attacks:
        • Phantom Hands - Xamphur will spawn two hand minions to attack the player. Xamphur cannot use this special attack again until the hands are (optionally) defeated.
        • Ghostly Hands - Xamphur will summon ghostly hands that come crushing down on the tile the player is stood on every game tick (similar to vorkath's attack).
    • Drops:
      • Book of the dead - Grants double damage to summoned thralls while the book is wielded by or in the possession of the owner (equipment or inventory). The book is not needed to summon thralls by default.
      • Misc resources and alchables

Minigames:
  • Theatre of Blood:

  • Fixed being able to attack other player's resurrected prayer monsters.
  • Being splattered by the Giant Mole will no longer disconnect you.
 
Items:
  • Cosmetic, halloween, and christmas mystery boxes:
    • Will now yield 3 loot rolls in the respective table when landing on clue rewards.
    • Can be viewed on the drop table viewer by searching or right-click selecting "check" on the boxes themselves. Drop rates for items on these tables will show as "Classified".
    • Drop rate for hitting the rare items table slightly buffed for all of these boxes.
  • Fixed an issue when reverting crystal armour that made seeds stack in your inventory.

  • Food shop additions (regular and ironmen)

Other Changes/Fixes:
  • Wandering Trader:
    • The trader will no longer restock his entire shop every 8 hours. Instead, each item will now have its own randomized expiry timer (3h-5h) Once expired, an item is either removed from the stock or replaced by a new item.
    • A small visual progress bar has been placed on each stock item to give you an indication of how soon it will expire (picture below).
  • Fixed the "Group Storage" button from OSRS appearing over size information in the bank.

    • Bank space information can be viewed by hovering over the available space in the top left of your bank.
  • The event tab will now visually tick event timers every second opposed to every 15 seconds previously.
  • Other players will no longer be able to interact with your phoenix pets.
  • Some trading post clerks were added to the gambling zone.
  • Ironmen can now purchase items from Scavvo's Rune Store at the champions guild.

Ironmen when we get these mystery boxes only get a MSB. Any reason why we can't get any drop if we get one of these mboxes

 

Other than that, great update!

These cosmetic mystery boxes only contain cosmetic rares and clue reward items. For this reason, Ironmen are allowed to have them. If there were other things in it such as weapons and armour then Ironmen would not be able to open them.

I received one of these christmas mystery boxes yesterday at the drop party in the party room and I rolled on a hard clue scroll I think and it just gave me a MSB. 

 

Unless these are completely different boxes. 

I did see there were only cosmetics and clues in those too but just wanting to check.

They are reward rolls on the respective clue table, not actual clue scrolls:
