Welcome everyone to the second content patch of Season 5! This patch focuses on adding more content, two skill changes, a new season pass, and bug fixing.
As Spria introduces new players to Slayer - a skill that requires players to fight against various monsters trying to take over Minescape, she sends you to Taverley dungeon slayer master to help them fighting off monsters that almost took over… But this time – someone else needs your help!
Sumona is a new slayer master located in the warrior’s guild and she needs your help fighting against the strongest monsters in Minescape – bosses. Sumona will only allow you to help her fight against those monsters if you’ve proven your loyalty to other slayer masters and unlocked the boss slayer reward in the slayer points shop for 750 points.
- Boss slayer requires a lot of energy from players, so a player might only complete 3 boss slayer tasks per hour.
- Completing a boss slayer task will award you with boss slayer points that can be currently used to skip / extend boss tasks (more rewards coming soon).
This update only introduces the core mechanics of boss slayer, and the rest of it should come with the upcoming patches (slayer task assign rework, boss point shop).
We have added a small fishing mini-game to reward players that are actively fishing. Whilst players are fishing, a fish may appear and move towards your fishing tool (works for all fishing spots). Catching it will provide players 25% extra xp and an extra fish every 4 interactions on average.
This follows the game spirit and rewards players that are not semi-afk with more XP. It follows the same guidelines as the sweet spots.
Magic rebalance - part 1
We have changed most of the spell damages and some of their unlocks in order to make magic more viable at early, mid, and end game levels.
Here is the table of the updated combat magic spells:
|Dark elemental force||95||152|
We have also changed the wand/staff damage as followed:
|3rd age wand||85||80|
We plan on changing the curse spells in a future magic update!
We have added a new quest, the famous Goblin Diplomacy quest!
Completing this quest will award players 5 quest points, 200xp in crafting and one gold bar!
In this quest, players must help Goblin Generals decide on a new armor color. This quest contains several cinematics and dyes that players can buy at certain stores. Players can also combine two dyes to make a new color!
Our first two seasons came with a Season Pass filled with small cosmetics (100ish cosmetics). We have decided to bring back the Season Pass but change the way it works.
Every week, new weekly challenges will be released, and a new cosmetic will be revealed in the Season Pass.
Players with the Gold gamepass automatically have the Season Pass. Players with the Diamond gamepass automatically have the Season Pass fully unlocked (and will unlock new cosmetics every week).
The season pass cost 1000 orbs to unlock or 2500 orbs to fully unlock.
We have fixed several bugs and applied some tweaks in this new Season 5 Patch 2 update:
- Helper/Game breaker titles not showing
- Changed Iron arrows/bolts fletching levels from 20 to 15
- Changed Steel arrows/bolts fletching levels from 35 to 30
- Bronze bolts and Iron crossbow (unf) now show the correct xp in the Fletching guide
- Changed the message of using a wand without the required magic level
- Removed the word "base" from magic weapons
That's all for our second content patch of Season 5.
