Zaros Updates [25/2/2021]


Recommended Posts

  • Developer

Hello everyone,

This is a bigger update that we've been working on and it has a little bit of everything. We've also heard the complaints about the wilderness being inactive, and we hope that some of the changes today will help revive it, or at least parts of it. Let us know what you think below!



  • Death's PvP shop has been revamped which will help make pking a bit more profitable and provide more choices on how to spend blood money.
  • Perdu will now only charge 2.5 million coins when locking untradeable items with a parchment scroll (previously 5 million).
  • The global 15% bonus exp boost in the wilderness has been removed. Instead, there's now a 20% bonus exp boost in the resource area, wilderness agility course and at the chaos altar.
  • Using a special attack in the wilderness (in single zones) will now always prevent teleporting for 5 seconds. This also applies in Edgeville PvP.
  • Killing a player that has a shutdown will now reward bonus blood money.
  • You can now have up to 3 wilderness keys at once, scales up to 6 based on donator rank (max reached with extreme donator).
  • Galvek
    • More loot!
      • Top 3 damage dealers now get 2 rolls on the wilderness keys drop table (excluding pvp items).
      • Top 4-10 damage dealers now get 1 roll on the wilderness keys drop table (excluding pvp items and rare items).
  • Ancient caskets
    • Added a global announcement when the player with the casket makes it out of the wilderness.
    • Fixed a few scenarios where the ancient casket hint icons (the arrows showing the location of the casket) would not be updated correctly for some players.
    • You can no longer alch the ancient casket.
  • You can now use the ::riskskull command to give yourself a special, high-risk skull. This skull will prevent you from using the 'Protect Item' prayer. To swap back to a regular skull simply use the ::skull command (cannot use the command while in wilderness when you have a high-risk skull). Additionally, using any of these commands will re-start the timer on your skull.
  • If you die with the 'Protect Item' prayer on but then your prayer points drop to 0 while you're dead, you will still protect an item.
  • Phoenix necklaces now act as consumables when dropped in the wilderness (they won't show up for other players).
  • You can no longer use the empty command in the wilderness.
  • Added Multi Varrock PvP teleport.


POH Costume Storage:

  • We've heard your suggestions for bank space and alternative storage (especially the Ultimate Ironmen). The POH costume room has been updated to match oldschool's current system.
  • While you can store a large variety of costumes, clue items, and special gear, the following items have been removed from the old storage system and can no longer be stored in the new system. If you had any of these items in the old storage, they will automatically go to your collection box once the update hits.
    • The six main colors of partyhats (red, yellow, blue, green, purple, white)
    • Halloween masks (red, blue, green)
    • Santa hat
    • Gilded rune defender
    • Lunar staff
  • Additionally, the boss lair display has been updated, allowing you to store all obtained boss jars.
  • When visiting another player's house, you can view the storages to see their achievements and collection.



  • The following quests have been added into Zaros, giving you an opportunity to earn an additional 6x 15-minute bonus xp books, 600k GP, and 6x crystal keys.
    • Monk's Friend
    • Pirate's Treasure
    • Druidic Ritual
    • Knight's Sword
    • Jungle Potion
    • Merlin's Crystal
  • With the new maximum quest points at 44 (from 29), the time calculation for tears of guthix has been adjusted.



  • Chambers of Xeric
    • Some adjustments to the droptables
      • There's now a 1/10 chance of receiving an elite clue scroll (rolls as a tertiary drop).
      • Added Dragon darts and Dragon bolts.
      • Removed Saltpetre, Dynamite and Lizardman fangs.
    • Damage against Vasa Nistirio will no longer be capped to his health, as this was preventing kills where he started healing on the same tick, forcing players to do another cycle.
    • You can now re-drink overloads and enhances if there's less than 4 minutes remaining (previously 1 minute).
  • Theatre of Blood
    • Spectators will now be able to see if there's a purple chest in the reward room.
    • Pestilent Bloat
      • Limbs will no longer fall on the same tile back to back

    • Fixed a bug where players could bring multiple accounts into LMS on the same device.
    • The correct blood key is now given when defeating another player.
    • Loot crates:
      • A 5th loot crate will now spawn later in the game (it was only spawning a total of 4 before).

    • Teleporting out of your fight with Hespori after immediately killing it will no longer reset the fight.
    • Fixed a bug where its special attack would go through on players that had just died, dealing damage when they respawned.
    • The bottomless compost bucket will now register in the collection log when obtained as a drop from Hespori.
    • Halberds can now be used to attack Hespori.
  • Iorwerth Dungeon
    • The dungeon and all its inhabitants have been added.

  • Death no longer tries to unnote items, causing large noted stacks to be deleted when the player runs out of inventory space.
  • You can no longer stack boosts that have different modifiers. For example, if you have a 20% exp boost active, attempting to activate a 50% boost will now warn you that the old boost will be overriden, instead of it applying the new boost with the remaining time of the old one.

This should also be done for the Nightmare and Corporeal Beast! 😄 Atleast when people are in the same cc (like OSRS).



Good updates, keep em coming!
