Patch Note

Pre-Season End

update main image


  • Change Password button redirects to recover password
  • Various crash fixes
  • Some misc adjustments/tweaks
  • Fix combat needing 1 turn for mobs to appear


  • Added new error handling for some crashes that have been happening
  • Added merc caching- if you get DC'd when you reconnect they'll respawn at their last saved state
  • Rebuilt the client, should fix some missing images

When this update is live, the Pre-Season will have officially ended!

Congratulations to our Pre-Season champs (awarded based on their placement when the timer in the UI ended, not on update launch)!

Total Level:
  1. JiananPS
  2. Seasoning
  3. Leaguecaster
Mastery Level:
  1. Weiden
  2. RNJesus
  3. Sudo

The winners can find their medals on their main league characters; message me (Nick) if you'd like them on another character as well!

By default you will not receive the Event Tokens from your seasonal character automatically, you have to execute the '/convertSeasonal CHARACTER_NAME' command, where CHARACTER_NAME is whatever your pre-season character is named. Whichever character you execute this command on will receive the tokens. Currently the exchange rate for event tokens is the sum of your total level * 15 and mastery level * 30.

Your seasonal character will be deleted on conversion to tokens, though we keep all the stats backed up so the hiscore may be restored at a later date.

If you delete the character through the character delete page you will lose out on your tokens.

New Items

  • Blademaster's Shroud - Dark fort drop - Melee DPS cape with a full set of enhanced auto attacks and an AOE ability.
  • Royal Banner - Dark fort drop - Support / Tank cape with some helpful group abilities.
  • Necromancer's Set - Barrows drop - A 5 item magic dps set with its own very powerful set effect and abilities.
