Zaros Update – Bounty Hunter, Ancient Casket Changes


Recommended Posts


+ Content Additions & Changes:




   Bounty Hunter

Bounty Hunter has made its way to Zaros! In this new Wilderness upgrade, you can be randomly assigned a target that is within your combat bracket. If you manage to defeat your target with an emblem in your inventory and risking at least 100K in items or coins, you might find yourself with a shiny new emblem to trade with Death for Blood Money. If you do not have an emblem to upgrade, a chance at a new tier 1 will be dropped for you.


Some important aspects of Bounty Hunter include:

- The chance of an upgrade or new emblem is dependent on your opponents risk, and the tier they are holding
- You are required to risk at least 100K in items or coins to receive an upgrade
- Upon killing your target, you will receive a 20 second pile-jumping (PJ) immunity
- You have a chance to gain a T1 Emblem on a wilderness slayer task, and if you complete your task, you have another chance to upgrade your emblem

The Blood Money reward for Emblems is as follows:

+ Antique emblem (tier 1) - 10 blood money
+ Antique emblem (tier 2) - 20 blood money
+ Antique emblem (tier 3) - 40 blood money
+ Antique emblem (tier 4) - 80 blood money
+ Antique emblem (tier 5) - 150 blood money
+ Antique emblem (tier 6) - 240 blood money
+ Antique emblem (tier 7) - 350 blood money
+ Antique emblem (tier 😎 - 500 blood money
+ Antique emblem (tier 9) - 700 blood money
+ Antique emblem (tier 10) - 1000 blood money


Ancient Caskets Changes

- Demi-bosses will now correctly drop a different weapon part if you already have the one they drop in your inventory.
- Slightly slowed down the speed at which the heating tiles at Hunllef change into red damaging tiles.




Theatre of Blood:


Due to the changes outlined below and to provide fairness, we are resetting the challenge and total time records on both world scoreboards. All other data relating to completions and deaths are retained. The competition for TOB will continue to run and will now end on  December 29th. The Nightmare competition starting this weekend will still run as planned.


- Ironmen are now able to pick up a Dawnbringer dropped by a teammate.
- Players now drop the Dawnbringer on death.
- Fixed an issue where you could accidentally overbuy an item from the supply chest you don’t have room for, effectively wasting your points

        - Moved all crab spawns back by one tile. This should help with clumping and freeze mechanics.

        - To clarify on damage the “red splats” deal to you when stepping on them, their max hit increases with the more matomenos that reach maiden


        - Pillar healths were previously 3,000hp each. Thanks to a confirmation from someone on OSRS they are now 130hp in a 5-man, scaling evenly up to 330hp in a 1-man. The damage that each nylo does to the pillars have also been changed to a maximum of “1” per hit.
        - Total pillar health is now properly show on the main HUD health bar.
        - Fixed an issue where 2 small nylocas would not spawn after big nylocas die.
        - The boss will now spawn 10 seconds after the last minion dies rather than the previous 5 seconds.
        - The boss now has better aggressive targeting, switching between targets more evenly.


        - The message that a red ball is coming your way is now colored red.
        - Fixed an issue where he would melee very far away (this was hotfixed shortly after release)
        - Will now fire the red DD bomb after 10 mage attacks, with melee attacks no longer counting towards this.
        - Stepping on an incorrect maze tile will now correctly deal AOE damage to players nearby.


        - Corrected range defence
        - Fixed an issue where you would randomly take poison damage when walking near poison splats


        - Fixed an issue where phase 1 is seldom skipped completely.
        - Fixed an issue where MVP points were not given for verzik p1
        - Fixed an issue where the purple athanatos would not spawn until 100 ticks after the start of phase 2.
        - Crab spawns in P2 and P3 are now more predictable and will not spawn on top of verzik, near the center, or to the south.
        - The message stating “There’s nothing under there for you!” during p2 melee attacks has been made into an overhead chat.
