Advent Calendar

  • The Advent Calendar is back, now slightly more appealing than last years. The Calendar can be opened from the Quest Journals game tab;
  • Log in every day to open a box and receive a reward;
  • Claiming day boxes on the current day will award 1 progress towards the bonus prize, as well as grant you 2 Squeal of Fortune spins (earned, and doubled by perk);
  • After claiming 15 correct boxes you'll be able to claim the: Horizon, 2-handed weapon melee cosmetic override;
  • Added button press sounds;

Bank

  • You'll now be able to directly deposit coins from the money pouch into your bank account even when your bank's (almost) full (as long as it has the space for a new item);
  • Depositing all Equipment items directly into your bank will now correctly check for free available bank slots before doing so;
  • Corrected the global Loot Chest interface to now check for Bank space and Bank item overflows when using the 'Bank' or 'Bank All' options;
  • Bank 'Withdraw as Note' button and functionality will now properly reset when re-opening the bank;

Battle Pass (Velheim Pass)

  • Added a new task-reward system that resets monthly; for daily, weekly and monthly (special) tasks that have to be completed to level up the Pass;
  • Daily tasks are very fast to do and do not require much effort to be put in. I didn't want to add another game that takes hours to complete daily, so the tasks themselves are very easy and straightforward;
  • Weekly tasks contain mini-games and D&D's to complete, not too demanding, but you will have to put a little more effort in to complete them. These tasks grant more EXP towards leveling your Passes;
  • Monthly (special) tasks are a set of tasks that are not necessary to do to complete the full Pass, but will, however, grant you even more EXP if you'd like to skip some levels early on;
  • All tasks will remain the same throughout most months/updates, unless we have to re-balance the system, or, if there are 'special' events that we'd like to include in it;
  • For each Battle Pass level you'll be able to collect free items, these mostly conclude of lamps, stars and different kinds of currencies;
  • There are also Premium rewards to claim for players who want to go above and beyond. These will mostly conclude of the same rewards as the Free Pass but at increased quantities, as well as Cosmetic Overrides (and tokens);
  • The Premium Pass rewards also include Velheim Coins every 5th level of the Pass. Premium Pass players will be able to re-earn MOST of their Velheim Coins spent from purchasing the initial pass if they fully complete it;

Christmas Events

  • Every so often while gaining EXP you'll receive a random amount of Christmas Wrapping Paper;
  • Use the paper on the Giant Christmas Cracker at home to help wrap it, or, exchange them at Santa for rewards of your choosing;
  • As every year, Goblins will try to ruin your Christmas fun by kidnapping Santa from home and taking him to a random Lodestone. Find Santa, slay the Goblins and earn additional rewards. This event runs every 5 hours 45 minutes past hour;
  • The 2009 Christmas Quest is back! Visit the Cupboard located at the home area to get started;

I completely forgot I had the whole thing on autostart based on dates, so I couldn't really prepare anything new for that this year..

Combat & related

  • Added a buff overlay for the Annihilation special attack;
  • Ghost Hunter equipment will now upgrade its tier when equipped based on your Defence level;
  • Increased Arch-Glacor's Furry Attack delay by a tick so the last animation has time to finish playing;
  • Araxxor's cleave attack's damage delay reduced by a game-tick;
  • Gravite knives no longer used as ammunition, instead, will now use their internal charge system;
  • The Crystal Hatchet now has its special attack;
  • Korasis's special attack will now deal Magic damage;
  • Vesta's spear special attack will no longer spam your chat-box for every target, as well as now reflect 50% of incoming damage to your targets;
  • Guthix/Saradomin bow special attack will now heal you over-time based on the damage dealt (up to 40 per heal), as well as have a 20% chance to fire an additional arrow if the corresponding god arrows are used;
  • Zamorak bow special attack now has a chance to trigger a third attack if Zamorak arrows are used;

Player-Owned Farms

  • Checking animals will now require their correct Farming level;
  • Added support for Farm Totem perks. Farm totems can be purchased from the Farmers' Market for 200 beans, and attached to any built paddock. Perks are divided into 2 tiers, and are active when a paddock has 1 (for tier 1) or 2 (for tier 2) Elder animals;
  • Farm Totems may be checked to see which perk it's currently offering, and removed to retrieve your totem;

Perk list is as follows:

  • Rabbit: Like Rabbits: Breeding success increased by 7% (10%);
  • Chicken: As the Rooster Crows: A 7% (10%) drop chance increase to receive ghostly essence while fighting enemies that drop it;

  • Frog: Flycatcher: Yield from stinkshrooms is doubled;

  • Asciatops: Powerful Beast: Increases the chance of a critical swing while Mining by 3% (6%);
  • Corbicula Rex: No Fear: Increases your critical hit chance by 2.5% (5%);

Miscellaneous

  • Ultimate Ironmen accounts can now store up to 28 items (their full inventory) with the Dungeoneering Tutor at Daemonheim entrance;
  • Daily Squeal of Fortune spins will no longer be granted automatically, they will now have to be claimed from the Solomon's General Store (Velheim Coin Shop);
  • Changed some buttons around the Quest Journals tab, I'm not sure if I like the final outcome though so it'll most likely get changed again in the near future;
  • The Loot Beam configuration setting has been moved to the 'Extra Account Settings' under the Options game tab;
  • The Profanity Filter will now filter out most common bad words and their variations, and replace them with asterisks for people who have the Profanity Filter option turned on. The filter will work for public/friend/private/clan chats;

Fixes

  • Added a simple text-box dialogue when trying to 'Craft' the Croesus Sporehammer stating that it needs to be made at an Anvil;
  • Spawned NPC's will no longer halt the next wave in the Fight Caves mini-game (ie. Staff of Sliske special attack);
  • Fixed an issue with the EXP Display tab not properly resetting its state when logging out and back in causing other interfaces (such as the Wilderness skull) to overlap;
  • Catching Chronicle Fragments while doing Divination will no longer change your current harvesting animation while you're in an action;
  • Reaper Task streaks will now correctly award players with Reaper Point bonuses on their 10th and 50th task completions (instead of 11 and 51);
  • Selling large quantities of items resulting in overflowing the coin amount in your inventories will now properly calculate the maximum amount of items you can sell before reaching that cap;
  • Elite Sirenic and Elite Tectonic may now be repaired to a 'brand-new' state which you'll be able to Augment or trade away after. If you find any more items like these - let me know;

  • Closing out of the Alchemist's Chest without taking anything will now add to inventory/drop on the floor all of the Chest's contents;
