Mod Rowley
Elemental workshop 5-7
  • Each quest will use 2 runes and there will be no more obnoxious puzzles (like in 3, so similar to 4).
    • 5 - Astral and Nature | 6 - Law and Death | 7 - Blood and Soul
  • We want to make the elemental armor have a good place in the game.
Mod Shogun Ripper Demon pet and updated model
  • Obtained from a Parasitic orb: Regular - 1/30,000 | Elite - 1/1,000
  • Obtainable off-task. No threshold.
Elite NPC Drop-tables
  • Vastly increase the XP and the drop value from Elite NPCs
  • Current Design: You get an additional drop on top of what you get when you kill them.
    • Elite NPC drop table is only for Elite NPCs
    • 100% get a rare-drop table drop from them.
Mod Rowley and Mod Raven Player-Owned Lake/Untitled Waterfowl Update
  • It is essentially a Low-level F2P Player Owned Farm located in Taverly near Lady of the Lake.
  • Currently 1 Pen that holds up to 9 Waterfowls (Ducks, Geese, Swans).
    • There can be a mix of each animal, but they each have their own Shiny variant.
  • An introductory to POF but not as intricate.
  • Provides a training method for F2P to level their farming level to 20. (If the cap gets increased).
  • Current assets are not final and the rewards are being looked at.
    • They won't provide beans.
    • Golden egg from a golden goose, and maybe a chance of a mega-duck.
Mod Erator Golden and silver clue scrolls[6]
  • Golden clues are master clues that guarantee a rare item on completion
    • Received by getting any other clue and having it upgrade
    • Chance to upgrade is very low, but gets higher depending on which tier of clue was initially received
    • "Not as rare as HSR" - expected one to enter the game per week
  • Silver clues are elite clues with 7 roll slots instead of 4-6
    • Also upgrade mechanic, but way less rare than golden clues
    • Does not guarantee a rare, but increases the chance of a rare due to the extra roll slot
Pinnable Grand Exchange history[7]
Mod Ryan PvM Hub[8]
  • Compact design that should hopefully be achieved in one sprint[9]
Mod Daze Titles for the Treasure Trail collection log[10]
Pet XP Broadcasts
  • The pet broadcasts will now display a player's XP/KC value for the pet.
Mod Ramen Addition of scaling for Solak between 2-7 people. [11]
