Zaros Updates - Tombs of Amascut


Recommended Posts

  • Developer
Good Morning, Zaros!
Today's update introduces the long-awaited Raids III : Tombs of Amascut. Before diving in, have a read over our patch notes listed and let us know what you think!
Tombs of Amascut:
  • Teleport available in the "Minigames" section of the teleporter.
  • No prerequisites to start a raid.
  • Overview:
    • Throughout development, we've striven to keep all mechanics 1:1 with Oldschool Runescape. Players may use similar tactics described in videos and guides to complete the raid. Invocations, scaling, and path levels all function correctly and will greatly change the difficulty and mechanics of the raid.
    • This activity is unsafe for hardcore ironmen.
  • Drop Rates/Points:
    • Drop rates for unique item rates, pet rates, and common reward quantity use a "point" system. In simple terms, this functions similar to CoX in that the more points you rack up the better chance you have for rewards.
    • Points earned on Zaros are boosted by a base amount of 40%. Players will have opportunities in future updates to further boost points earned through the town board and scrolls in the voting store. If you're a math savvy player and would like to read more about the point system, you can visit this in-depth article written by Jagex. There is also a loot calculator on the OSRS Wiki (note: this shows OSRS rates)
    • Drop rates for keris jewels and thread of elidinis are not based on the point system. Because of this, we have reduced their rates by 50% (compared to OSRS)
    • We encourage players to have a quick read over this article on loot mechanics. This breaks down weightings for unique items, tertiary rewards, and raid prerequisites for rolling untradeables like pet metamorphs and ornamental kits.
  • New Items/Rewards:
    • Tumeken's Shadow
      • Two-handed powered staff. Passive effect in which the player's magic attack bonus and magic damage are multiplied by three from the player's worn equipment (four within the Tombs of Amascut); the magic damage increase from this is capped at a total of 100% Magic Strength.
    • Masori Equipment
      • New best-in-slot range gear surpassing Armadyl armour for attack bonuses. can also be upgraded into a fortified variant with Armadyl plates, increasing the Defence level required to equip it to 80, offering increased defensive bonuses and a +1 prayer bonus, which in turn makes it surpass Armadyl armour's defensive bonuses
    • Elidinis' Ward
      • The ward can be fortified by attaching an arcane sigil to the ward, creating a fortified variant; doing so requires level 90 Prayer, 90 Smithing, and 10,000 soul runes, granting 260 experience in both skills in the process. Players cannot pay Abbot Langley to restore the ward, though he can remove the sigil from an arcane spirit shield.
    • Osmumten's fang
      • The fang has two unique passive effects which aim to make it effective against targets with high Defence levels and more consistent overall: re-rolling accuracy on an unsuccessful hit and making damage rolls closer to the average. The special combat mechanics are described in more detail below.
    • Lightbearer
      • Having no requirements to wear, the ring regenerates the player's special attack energy twice as fast at 15 seconds per 10%, or 150 seconds per 100%. Equipping or unequipping the ring will cause the special attack energy restoration timer to reset.
    • Thread of Elidinis
      • Can be used on a rune pouch to create a divine rune pouch, which can store four types of runes instead of three.
    • Keris Jewels
      • Breach of the scarab
      • Eye of the corruptor
      • Jewel of the sun
    • Tumeken's Guardian (pet)
      • 89 Rating
      • A pet perk will be added on the following update after the pet rarity is determined.
      • There are also 5 untradeable items dropped from the raid that further metamorph the pet. Read more about them and their requirements here.
    • Cursed phalanx
      • Ornament kit that can be used on Osmumten's fang. In order to receive one, players must complete a raid at level 500+ with zero deaths for all party members.
    • Menaphite ornament kit
      • Ornament kit that can be used on Elidinis' ward(f). In order to receive one, players must complete a raid at level 425+ with zero deaths for all party members.
    • Masori crafting kit
      • Ornament kit that can be used on Ava's assembler. In order to receive one, players must complete a raid at level 350+ with zero deaths for all party members.
  • Resources/Helpful Videos:
  • A big thank you goes out to our beta team for their continuous testing over the past month.

Wait so are pets no auto insured?

Old pets you have obtained in the past and have chosen to not insure with the old system need to be insured. Pets you gain from this update going forward are auto-insured.
