I know it has been a long time but today we finally have another update for you. Let’s get into it!
Summer has arrived at Rigour (better late than never)! The summer event will last until the 15th of August. During this time, a summer sale will also be active giving a 25% discount in our store by using the code ‘SUMMER25‘.
The event consists of a very simple concept. Every 4 hours, a random NPC will be selected as a “Hot NPC”. Killing this NPC during that period will give you a 1/75 chance at receiving 5-25 summer tickets. You can find the information about which NPC is the hot NPC and when the next change will be in your Events tab.
With this event, some new items are being introduced into the game. They are as follows:
All these items can be upgraded using the new summer upgrade scroll, costing 1,500 summer tickets, in combination with the original item. You can find the summer shop by trading the summer elemental NPC at the home area.
Two new ornament kits have been added to the rare drop table of theatre of blood. These may be used to upgrade the various weapons you may receive from theatre of blood. They all have corresponding effects and have slightly buffed stats from their original versions (unlike on OSRS where the kits are purely cosmetic).
The base upgrade chance for these items is at 50%, meaning it can be boosted to a whooping 80% with an upgrade boost token.
Two new perks have been added:
I hope you will enjoy, and look forward to more!
Due to my IRL situation with recent exams it has been a while since the last update. Luckily, I am back in full force again working on updates for you. Today I have a long list of fixes and additions that I hope you will enjoy:
At last, the loot tracker plugin has been released! It will track NPC drops you receive from killing NPC’s. You can choose to ignore certain items and group them by NPC type or per kill.
Players may now toggle on the tile indicators plugin to show highlighted tiles (where your mouse pointer is) and your players tile. Destination tiles will be added soon (where you’ve clicked).
Due to recent shenanigans, hunter traps will now automatically disappear after being left for 5 minutes. If you encounter any issues with this change, simply relog to reset your number of laid traps.
The Dinh’s bulwark special attack has been added. It will inflict damage to NPC’s/players in a 11×11 radius around the player, dealing two hits to the NPC being attacked.
Another option has been added to the well of goodwill; boosted pet drop rates! Fill it up with 75M coins to boost drop rates of pets by 2x for one hour.
The long-lasting, mysterious issue with slayer helmets giving inconsistent damage boosts has at last been solved. The issue was that the regular slayer helmet (i) was receiving two boosts: one for being a regular slayer helmet (10%) and one for being an imbued helmet (15%), thus surpassing the likes of void slayer helmet and any colored variant. This only applied to the regular imbued version. In addition to this, the Void slayer helmet has received a buff from 20% damage boost to 25% damage boost to really trump the other helmets.
Upon dying with a malediction/odium ward with an enhancement kit, its regular version will now be dropped on the ground for whoever receives the loot.
The abyssal sire is now back and functional again whilst we complete the combat script for it. Sorry about the hiccup.
Players may now gift bonds to ironman accounts that have another primary rank (staff ranks) as well as duo ironman accounts.
Duo ironman accounts may now change their XP rate, choose any XP rate upon creation & use the referral chest freely as the competition has concluded.
Buffed certain item bonuses to give them more value:
– Verzik Enchantment now gives a 5% damage boost instead of 3%.
– The occult ring now gives a 5% damage boost instead of 2%.
– The chaos blessing now gives a 5% damage boost instead of 2%.
Slightly nerfed the volatile nightmare staff special attack as it was way too powerful. The max hit in pvp combat is now 80, with max gear (including Rigour customs), just like on OSRS.
There are now global announcements when a player goes on a 5, 10, 25 or 50 killstreak, much like when a player ends someones killstreak.
Fixed the relleka rooftop not giving marks of grace properly.
A significant increase in tokkul rewards from completing the inferno & fight caves has been made:
I hope you will enjoy these updates, and look forward to more!
It’s been a while, and finally we’ve reached another exciting update. The patch notes follow below:
The home area has received a full revamp! Whilst it may be confusing I think this home will be a bit easier to navigate and gives the server a stronger first impression.
With this change, the LMS area has been moved to the Ferox enclave. It may be accessed by using minigame teleports or simply typing ::lms. Skilling utilities now all come with a near-by bank as well. Lastly, the combat dummy is now available for anyone and can be found in the altar building at home.
Fixed the tab area in resizable mode being fully transparent.
The crystal halberd & its special attack has been added to the game. It may be aquired from the superior crystal chest & at a rare chance when exchanging a crystal weapon seed with the Weird old man. This weapon also deals full damage vs. corporeal beast (any attack style).
For more information on the special attack: https://oldschool.runescape.wiki/w/Crystal_halberd
Fixed an issue with dying with an open looting bag not dropping the items on ground, thus giving you safe items.
Fixed item prices not loading & displaying properly for ground items.
I hope you will enjoy!
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,
