Easter has arrived at Rigour and we bring you some exciting new updates with it! I’m not gonna drag along too much but in light of all of this, we’re holding a 20% sale during the easter holidays. It will last for as long as the easter event – just like the new, limited edition easter mystery box. More on that below.
Below follows a full list of updates:
Easter has arrived at Rigour with a limited-time event (which is the main focus in todays updates). You may find the easter fairy just south-west of home as seen below.
Speak to her and you will find that the easter bunnys eggs have been stolen! In return for helping her retrieve the eggs, you will receive a bunny outfit. Players who complete the event will also have a 1/10 chance at receiving an easter mystery box, which is also available in the store for a limited time only.
The objective of the event is rather simple. Every 15 minutes, a group of evil bunnies will spawn somewhere around the world, guarding a chest containing the eggs they stole from the easter bunny. You may find the location of them by using the crystal given to you by the fairy. The locations may or may not be inside the wilderness. If you do not feel like venturing into the wilderness, simply wait 15 minutes for the next spawn! Do note, however, that only 100 eggs are up for grabs on each spawn and each player may only claim 10 eggs per spawn – so you must be quick! These bunnies are agressive, however, they do not hit very high. In addition to this, occasionally, bunnies will invade the edgeville dungeon or the wilderness ditch. During this time, players may kill the bunnies for a chance at an easter mystery box drop.
The event & box will be discontinued on the 10th of April.
The easter mystery box contains various cosmetic items in relation to the easter. Below you may see a full list of items available:
The box itself:
Gilded bunny pet – Gives a 5% drop rate bonus
Gilded bunny ears
Easter Ring – Allows you to transform into an egg
The easter ring, gilded bunny pet & gilded bunny ears will all be discontinued after the event (10th of April).
The second big change in this update is a new system: Pet shredding. Players are now able to recycle and shred their pets in exchange for pet shards. These may be used to purchase pet mystery boxes or upgraded pets. Purchasing an upgraded pet requires you to have the original version of it as well, which is lost upon purchasing the upgraded pet. The rewards for shredding pets range from 25-1,000 shards per depending on rarity and difficulty to aquire. For example, slayer pets get you only 25-75 points whilst a boss pet gets you a minimum of 150 shards. Certain pets, like raid pets & effect pets give upwards of 1,000 points for shredding them.
The new, upgraded pets added are as follows:
Burning Hydra – 7,500 shards + Hydra pet – Has a 5% chance to deal 3-6 burn damage. Works only in PvM.
Dark Mole – 5,000 shards + Mole pet – Deals 10% additional damage against NPC’s in the wilderness.
Berserk Graardor – 5,000 shards + Graardor pet – Deals 10% additional damage in the godwars dungeon.
Magical Skotos – 3,5000 shards + Skotizo pet – Deals 10% additional damage when wearing a Kodai wand.
Venomous snakeling – 10,000 shards + Snakeling pet – Has the same venom effect as other toxic items. Works in both PvM & PvP.
Players may now quickly access the teleportation device by using the lit up spell icons in their spellbooks, representing the different teleport categories.
To make it easier for newer players to find, a portal has been added outside the home bank where you can quickly access the different events.
I hope you will enjoy these updates, and happy easter holidays!!
It is time – the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Duo Ironman! In the update bringing this game mode alive, there are some other changes worth noting. The full list follows below:
The duo ironman mode has finally been released and the competition is live! Read all about it here if you’re interested: https://rigour-ps.net/forum/topic/duo-ironman-game-mode-competition-win-1b-osrs-gp-1k/#postid-346
The group (and now duo) storage chest has had two bugs fixed.
A new perk has been added called ‘Crushing Expert’. This perk can be found under combat perks & increases the XP received from using a bonecrusher by 25%.
The overloaded heart has, after some discussion, had some changes to it.
Players may now attach an ornament kit to the tormented bracelet. This kit may be purchased from the vote shop.
In order to maintain the importance of high-end gear, the blowpipe has received a slight nerf. This nerf also impacts the Cerberus blowpipe.
I hope you understand that this balancing change is for the greater good of this server and not to mess with you all!
Most of the effort has gone towards finalizing the duo ironman game mode for this update – expect more content updates in the next one!
Many thanks, and good luck,
After a rough weekend with both website & server host downtime, we’ve finally reached a turning point and with that a BIG update. I also urge each and everyone of you to read up and prepare for the Duo Ironman competition that is coming up on friday. You can read more about that here: https://rigour-ps.net/forum/topic/duo-ironman-game-mode-competition-win-1b-osrs-gp-1k/
Anyway, let’s jump into the updates!
A whole new, custom perk system has been added to the game. You can access it at any time by using the orange icon in the top right corner of your game screen.
Perks that are unlocked will last forever. I’m not going to list them all here as you may view the description and requirements of each one on the interface. You may also view which in-game activities give points by clicking on ‘Points guide‘. All of these activities may be repeated as many times as one would like.
These perks add another dimension to the game and will prolong your grind & make it more enjoyable. You may view how many ‘Rigour points‘ (which is used to unlock perks) you have by viewing it in your personal (purple) tab in the quest tab.
A new plugin has been added; regeneration timers. This will properly display the hp/special orb regain and the special orb now drains properly based on the amount of special attack you have.
Your bank tabs will now work properly & allow you to create new tabs whilst in resizable/fullscreen mode.
After a few bugs and hiccups with it, we have taken our time to rewrite it to (hopefully) ensure that the issues with it are fixed and that you can start using it seamlessly. Sorry about the issues & enjoy!
The appropriate dragon thrownaxe special attack has been added to the game. It is commonly used on OSRS to make nice combos and stacks as it has an instant special activation, just like the granite maul.
The repair costs (at 100% degradation) are as follows:
The collection log for this box has a whopping $50 bond as a reward.
The redemption prayer has been added and now functions the way it should.
The preserve prayer now works and keeps your boosted stats boosted for a 20% longer period of time.
Finally, we have confirmed the issue with items being duped/changed upon reclaiming them from the Weird Old Man fixed. Sorry for the long wait – this issue has been really nagging at us. Big thanks to Mertboy2 for figuring out how to consistently replicate it!
Some new upgradable items have been added to the game. Below follows a description.
Instead of being on the Wraith key drop table, this item is now upgradeable. It requires Wyrm Shard x3 & Boots of Brimstone to upgrade.
This upgrade requires an Abyssal Shard an Abyssal Head & an Amulet of Fury. It shares the stats of a fury but has 1,000 direct teleports to the abyss. After the charges are used the shard is consumed. This item is untradeable.
This upgrade requires a Crystal Bow & a Zilyana Godbow. The bow shares the stats & effects of a Crystal bow but with +10 ranged strength and unlimited charges.
Other upgrade changes:
While we wait for the Abyssal Sire re-write to be finished, we have added back the old combat strategy for it. This was a mistake to remove in the first place.
Fixed the issues with mage/range attacking outside of mage bank getting you stuck.
I hope you will enjoy!
Today, I have a for many long awaited announcement to make. It is in regards to the Duo Ironman game mode that I have previously mentioned. We have finally set a release date for this mode – it will be released on friday the 26th of March, 6PM GMT. With the release of this mode, a huge competition will be held but before I dive into that, let me explain the basics of the mode:
Now, lets dive into what you’re all excited for…the competition. The competition starts the same moment that the update with the release of the game mode goes live. It is very simple.
NOTE: If a duo is first to reach, for example, the threshhold for the first prize (1,750 total level on average) and choose to claim it, they may not claim any other prizes after that. They may, however, choose to not claim the prize and try to be the first to reach the threshhold for another, higher rewarding prize.
For the sake of preparation, we have opened up a channel in discord called #find-a-group. You may use this to find a group for a regular ironman group, but also to request a partner for this upcoming competition.
I wish you all the best of luck and hope you may find a suitable partner to team up with!
Today we are releasing yet another update. Most of our time has gone towards preparation for the Duo Ironman game mode and wrapping up group ironman storage, however we’ve
managed to fit in some other important fixes & additions as well!
In addition to todays updates, we have also enabled double voting rewards as well as a 15% discount on the store ALL WEEK as a thank you for all the support you continue to show!
Anyway, the updates are as follows:
In preparation for the upcoming duo ironman game mode (announcement coming soon), we have finally finished up the shared bank for ironman groups! The main tab holds 50 slots for any possible item and the other tabs are filled up with supplies (food, pots & skilling resources) to share efficiently with your group. This bank is pretty simple and you may not re-arrange items – it will primarily be for sharing items when other members in your group are offline and vice versa. You may access the bank by using the chest right outside the home bank.
Players may now exchange duplicate skilling items by using the skilling exchange (bob) for skill tokens.
The withdraw (remove) item from stake option now works incase a player accidentally puts up an item.
We continue working on improvements & new content for you every day. Expect more soon!
