Smoke battlestaff buff

This week we've got a bunch of quality of life updates coming into Old School as well as a lovely little buff for the smoke battlestaff!

Smoke battlestaff buff

The smoke battlestaff and mystic smoke staff now provide a 10% increase in accuracy and damage when used to cast spells from the normal spellbook.

Motherlode mine teleport

The mining guild teleport found on the skills necklace has now been replaced with a slightly more useful motherlode mine teleport.

Hidden chatbox & private messages

A toggle is now available that allows you to have private messages remain visible even when your chatbox is hidden.

Magic potion colour change

The magic potion has been made a different, slightly more magical, colour so it is a little easier to distinguish from other potions.

In other news...

  • Abyssal Sire

    We have not yet made any changes to the Abyssal Sire, the new abyssal weapons or the drop table of the Sire. As players become increasingly experienced at killing the Sire, learning how to defeat it more efficiently, we will decide what to do with the drop table accordingly. These changes will be balancing changes and will not be polled.

    We will also be offering buffs to the special attacks of both the Abyssal Dagger and Bludgeon following feedback from the community in the last week. Expect to see these buffs offered on the next content poll.

    I have a few ideas concerning the abyssal sire boss, there are a few issues I've encountered while killing it.

    1 Some parts of the floor are unclickable.
    2 The spawns are extremely hard to click on, and a lot
    of times you end up clicking through them which could lead to an instead dead...
    3 The XP you receive after killing one, is too low taking in consideration that you have to kill the Respiratory Systems and spawns and the abyssal sire also heals up while battling it in certain stages of the fight. This means you will have to do a combined damage of about 600-800 depends on how much it heals, and you will only receive 400 slayer xp which seems very low for this boss. I think it should be raised to 600 slayer xp at minimum.

    To kill this boss effectivly you will have to use quite a lot of supplies, and the regular drops will not or barely cover for these supplies which makes most players want to avoid this boss at this very moment. ( I'ts not even slightly crowded there ... )

    ( I have killed about 250 bosses and these were just some of the main things I wanted to share )

    "Players of any combat level can now enter the lair of the Corporeal Beast."

    Oh, I didn't know 71% was the new required number to pass a poll. Can we please look at other things that got 71% and implement them into the game?
