Boss Pets, Sets, Chat & More
This week we are bringing you four new boss pets to get your hands on as well as a whole host of other content from the recent near miss poll. Spacebar to skip chat dialogue, instanced Kraken and lots more. Let's get into the details of this week's update.
Wilderness Boss Pets
Scorpia, Venenatis, Vet'ion and Callisto now have a very slim chance of dropping a pet version of themselves when killed. It will be no small feat to get your hands on one of these pets with not only the rarity of the pet drops to consider, but also the added danger of being in the wilderness.
If you see someone wandering around with one of these pets you can be sure that they are not only a master of PvM but someone that knows the ways of the wilderness like the back of their hand.
Think you're brave enough to go for a wilderness boss pet? Be sure to head up north and give it a shot. You might just get lucky.
Spacebar skipping chat dialogue
When interacting with NPCs you will now be able to use your keyboard to skip through chat dialogue and select chat options. You can use the spacebar to continue through dialogue and the numbers on your keyboard to select different chat options.
It is now possible to open an instanced Kraken cave in which you can have your own, personal Kraken to kill. You can open this cave by right-clicking the crevice that leads to the Kraken and selecting 'Private'. You will then be prompted to pay 25,000 coins, from either your inventory or your bank, as a cost for opening the instance.
The cave that you are then placed in is inaccessible by other players and will close once you leave.
Please note: If you leave the cave in any way, all items left on the ground will disappear. You will not be able to retrieve lost items if you die.
Overhead chat filter
Filtering chat will now filter both what you see in the chatbox and what is displayed over the heads of other players.
Ring of Recoil Tweaks
We've now added a 'break' option to rings of recoil that will allow you to make sure the next ring of recoil that you equip will be able to deal a total of 40 points of damage. Also, the message you receive as your ring shatters has been recoloured to make it more noticeable.
Godsword accurate attack style change
We've adjusted the accurate attack style of the Godswords to use slash rather than crush. As the slash attack bonus on Godswords has always been higher than the crush bonus, having the accurate attack style of the weapons use slash rather than crush means that the accurate attack style takes advantage of the best offensive bonus of the weapon.
New Grand Exchange Sets
We've added some additional item sets to the Grand Exchange. You can now create sets of the following items by talking to the Grand Exchange clerks:
- Holy book page set
- Unholy book page set
- Book of balance page set
- Book of law page set
- Book of darkness page set
- Book of war page set
- Zamorak dragonhide set
- Saradomin dragonhide set
- Guthix dragonhide set
- Bandos dragonhide set
- Ancient dragonhide set
- Armadyl dragonhide set
- Partyhat set
- Halloween mask set
