Improvements to: Blast Furnace, Blast Mine, and Lighthouse Dungeon
July 27 2017
The Blast Furnace has experienced a high turnover of late, and has consequently invested in new personnel to assist your smithing efforts. The Lighthouse has been improved to allow players to assess competition for Dagannoth kills. The Blast Mine overlay is here, so you're now able to track the number of ore you've collected. The Amulet of Chemistry has had a new toggle option for the thrifty potion makers among you. Plus the usual range of patches, fixes, and QoL tweaks.Blast Furnace
Here's introducing Numpty and Thumpy, the Blast Furnace's newest recruits. On Blast Furnace-themed worlds they'll automatically repair broken pipes, cogs, and the drive belt. To meet their wage demands you'll find that on these worlds, the cost of the Blast Furnace has now been increased to 72,000gp per hour. Lighthouse Dungeon
The Lighthouse Dungeon has always been a heavily contested area, and until today you were required to venture down to the lowest level to see whether the Dagannoths were yours for the taking. All that has changed now, as we've implemented two changes to improve visibility on any would-be competition.
It's now possible to see players and Dagannoths on lower level when stood above the ladder, and alongside this comes a peek option on the Iron Ladder which will give you a summary of the number of players present on the floor of the dungeon.Blast Mine
An overlay interface has been added to the Lovakengj Blast Mine which will now allow you to track just how many of each ore you have collected so far. Amulet of Chemistry
The Amulet of Chemistry offers a 5% chance of giving an extra dose when equipped whilst potion-making. It has five charges, and then breaks. Today's update brings with it a toggle option which will stop your character from making more potions once the amulet breaks. This is perfect for those of you keen to get your money's worth. By default you will not
stop making potions when the amulet breaks.Deadman Season End
The Autumn Season has now ended. The top 2000 players will be invited to the Autumn Invitational which begins on September 18th and will reach its climax on-stage at RuneFest on September 23rd.
