Hello again! More updates on bugs etc. for you guys

Today's hotfixes:

  • Icthlarin will definitely no longer be invisible for anyone during Eye of Het I
  • Powder of Item Protection will now correctly protect an extra item with the Protect Item prayer
  • Agility course obstacles will now correctly be affected by surefooted aura/agility skillcape/toadflax incense

Fixes to go out on Monday:

  • Hunter scarabs will no longer be competitive, will instead be per-player
    • This can't be hotfixed, so Monday is the earliest it can be out by
  • Adding a tool leprechaun to the cactus patch

EDIT - The following are now also coming Monday:

  • Ring of duelling teleports you into a stool
  • Globetrotter jacket teleport hasn't been updated for Hamid & Jaraah
  • Eye of Het miniquests are marked as 2021, rather than 2022
  • Plank box can't be used to construct flower baskets
  • Prayer powder buff bar icons don't disappear when depleted (until relogging)
  • Failing the last obstacle on the Agility course gives you a penalty for the next lap
  • Cramulet can't be used to teleport or locate Bob when equipped

Bugs & feedback on our radar (to go out in the coming weeks, no guaranteed dates):

  • Cutscene trigger to be moved to Icthlarin post-event
  • Reaper crew bonus is applied to everyone regardless of if you've completed the achievement
  • Farming master cape & fertile soil can't be used to compost flower bushes
  • Buckets aren't destroyed when used to compost flower bushes, when 'Destroy empty buckets when farming' is checked in settings
  • Holy Scarab isn't included in the 'And Green' achievement
  • Fadli still references the Duel Arena in some dialogue
  • Cannons can be placed down in the oasis
  • Duel Arena killcount doesn't carry over to the Duel Anywhere duellist's cap
  • Rapid growth doesn't work on flower bushes
  • Scarab stack buff text says 3 scarabs, even when you can stack 5
  • Teleporting to an instance from the center of the oasis prompts Icthlarin dialogue and sends you back
  • Farming reputation pop up text displaying inconsistently
  • Removing an amulet from the cramulet reverts the Animalingual achievement

With the duel arena killcount from the antique duellist's cap then carrying over to the duel anywhere duellist's cap does that mean we would automatically unlock tier 6 on the new cap?

If your combined duel arena + duel anywhere killcounts totals 5000+, yes

Unrelated to the bugs and fixes (thank you for being on top of everything) but more a curiosity with how the tablet of het interacts with the LOTD? Do they both work, if so how does the math play out?

Yes, they both work - your chance for the drop is first scaled down with LOTD, and then scaled down further with the drop enhancer

Wouldn’t it be scaled up??? Scaled down sounds like your chances are lowering!!!

Sorry (in the code it's scaled down to work) - yes, just scaled to increase your chances :P

Would it be possible to have the scarab shells go straight into the inventory instead of having to run around or at least make it a possible upgrade?

I think it's ok to keep the activity a bit more hands-on to go and get your loot - but it's definitely something I'll think more about though having seen a few of you ask for it :)

Would most likely be an upgrade if I do decide to implement it

Also can’t complete the “ Say it don’t spray it “ achievement with the new amulet, is anyone aware of this ?

Have you been trying it with the crocspeak & cabbagespeak amulets added to the cramulet? :)

The way they apply luck is by reducing the denominator (e.g. if a drop is 1/100, with lotd it would be 1/99), so the "scaling down" is likely referring to it scaling down the denominator (so with tablet in this example, droprate would be 1/89).

this is it 😁

Maybe make it an additional small benefit of the Elite Hunter outfit? Hunter outfit is - for a significant part of the current hunter meta - quite bad, so giving it a few extra uses might be nice considering it does cost a little more to unlock than other elite outfits.

At least as an unlock from Dundee, although I wouldn't know if this'd work easily code wise.

That's an option too - thanks for the suggestion!

Has anyone mentioned the default skybox and the fog? It doesn’t look like an oasis, more a desert. Is this intentional? It looks so bright on all the promo pictures.

Yes this is intentional. Wait til next week. ;)

Currently you're dealing with the post-disaster area.

I mean, reading the original post. It seems like more is being put on the backlog then is actually being addressed. Not the best look. Just shows how depraved the community is that getting any bug fix is praise worthy now.

We've got fixes completed dev-side for most of the bugs, and are actively fixing the rest of them (not going on the backlog) - the reason I can't give guaranteed dates for release is due to the workload of release QA (however new update fixes do generally take priority, so I imagine most of them will be out by the 17th)

Since you updated Gaps, Traps and Laps to include the Het course, could you make it include the anachronia course as well? Its the one missing agility course.

I'll raise this

Removing an amulet from the Cramulet reverts the achievement and you can no longer wear/use mqc until you put it back into the Cramulet.

Thanks - have added to the list

Bug: Trying to teleport to Ports using the Captains Log, from within Het’s Oasis, after gathering a hollyhock (for just 1 tick), traps me in front of the Statue of Het and then spawns a chat box with: “You left the area, so Icthlarin decided to try again later. Speak to him when you are ready to resume”

Thanks - have added to the list!

No current plans to move Hamid

Is it possible to get strange rocks from any of these activities? I cultivated flowers for a few hours but never received one.

Yes, strange rocks are obtainable from the Agility course/Hunter/Farming - worth noting that you can only get them when harvesting the flowers, however

does harvesting lychee, hops and checking out farm animals still award farming reputation or is it just not showing up?

Thanks - have added to the list (they still award reputation, but the popup text is just showing inconsistently)

I would like to clarify, are we able to get construction pet from clearing debris?

Construction pet cannot be obtained from the debris I'm afraid

Thank you for keeping an eye on this, I can tell you're passionate about making this update something that players want in the game :)

Along with the fertile soil (when/if it gets implemented), do you think there's a chance of adding in rapid growth to skip 1/3 of the flower growth? Note that the master farmers outfit has an option to use it twice per patch, so I think that would be too much to skip 2/3 of it and it may be hard to implement it without allowing that. If that would ruin the balance of gathering flowers I totally understand.

Good suggestion - have added to the list! Personally I feel it would be fine to have it skip straight to harvest as it's only 1/2 times a day, but will discuss it :)

I assume pets as well? What about from the event spots (e.g. debris)?

Yeah pets too :) Debris only gives XP

How do I watch the introductory cutscene if I wasn’t in a place I could hear it the first time?

You can replay it from the memorial board in the north-east

The holy scarab also seems to uh, be reducing prayer drain a LOT. It seems that each additional prayer divides the drain by 50% or something like that.

Soul split+ T99 prayer + prot item + Berserker put me on .5? points per second (was something below 1), pray drain which is definitely lower than ‘half’ as stated

Getting this fixed! Thanks for raising
