Good morning, Zaros! Today's update brings a bunch of QOL changes/additions, bug fixes, changes to doomsayer items, and some new achievement store rewards. Have a read over the notes and let us know what you think. Have a great weekend!
 
The poll both is now open! Head on over to the nearest booth to cast your votes.
  • You are only allowed to vote once across all your accounts
  • You must have at least a total level of 1,000 and have active two-factor authentication to vote.
 
Doomsayer Changes:
  • The following item exchange values have been adjusted:
    • Elysian sigil/spirit shield - 1,500,000 points
    • Arcane sigil/spirit shield - 500,000 points
    • Spectral sigil/spirit shield - 250,000 points
  • The following items can now be exchanged for points:
    • Parasitic egg, twisted horns, metamorphic dust, twisted ancestral colour kits, sanguine dust, sanguine ornament kit, holy ornament kit, viggora's chainmace, thammaron's sceptre, dragon chainbody, dragon crossbow, dragon platebody, imbued rings, black masks, amulet of fury, enhanced crystal teleport seed, and occult necklace.
  • All enchanted sweet colors aside from blue have been changed to not delay combat attacks. We hope this will make other colors more desirable for use.
  • Doomsayer's Book of the Dead:
    • Can now be charged with blood runes (1:1 charge ratio) to provide free casts of thralls without the necessary runes. You must still be on the arceuus spellbook to utilize this and must still have prayer points for each spell.
    • Sanctum tier requirement to obtain the book has been reduced to Tier 8 (chapel). Price remains the same.
  • Golden branch:
    • Available for 250,000 sanctum points.
    • Used to upgrade magic secateurs, altering its color and granting an increased harvest yield of 20%.
    • The new variant of secateurs can be stored in the farming tool storage.
  • Doomsayer's tools can now be stored in clue stash units
  • The heart of doom effect now lasts for 7 minutes (the entire length of the cooldown)
 
Achievement Store:
  • Added all tiers of Kandarin headgear. Current benefits are as follows:
    • Tier 1
      • Functions as a light source

      • Thormac will enchant battlestaves for 75% of the original cost
      • Unlimited teleports to sherlock
      • 10% higher yield from the catherby herb patch
      • 10% increase to the activation chance for the special effect from enchanted bolts (even in PvP). This bonus stacks additively with other bonuses like the Armadyl crossbow special attack. For example, if a bolt has a 10% chance of activating naturally, then after completing the hard diary the chance will become 11%. Must wear or  have it in your inventory.
    • Tier 4
      • Thormac will enchant battlestaves for 50% of the original cost
