Posted By BG | 28-01-2021

Hey all,

Over the last few days Dev and I has been working on a very ambitious project and a taste of what is possible in our current client.

Introducing Barrows.

This castle is host to 5 very difficult to kill brothers, each room and coffin contains one of the five brothers.

If you are brave and strong enough to defeat all 5 you'll find yourself in the dungeons where these brother kept some of there most valuable items.

Image

In order to get to the chest in the middle of the room, you need to find the right door to go through, evading the dangerous creatures that now inhabit the dungeon.

Once the chest has been looted you'll gain access the real reason your here. LOOT.

Introducing Barrows mage armour.

This armour is not like any mage armour in the game so far, This set is unique as it offers magic str bonus. Allowing for those classic spells to hit much harder than ever before.
Image

This is all in attempt to balance the Mage/Range/Melee dynamic as we will need this going forward with future bosses.

In addition we added a new best-in-slot one-handed weapon
Barrows Whip

Boasting melee stats of 79aim and 79 power, this weapon will surely decimate any foe.

In addition with feedback and chats between ourselves, we decided that rares should be earnable in-game and not with wealth outside. So we've added new TRADEABLE Loot Bags to big boss loot tables. (At the moment this is only barrows)

In these bags you can find many of useful supplies, from headless arrows to 2,500 of each elemental rune and many more! But most important VERY RARELY you'll find a random Party Hat or Santa.

So where is this new area, its isolated way away from the bank in the south-western part of the desert. We didn't want to make this just a boss you can come in kill one brother bank, rinse, repeat. So we decided that it would be better to isolate the area in a far away area with a rare chance to recieve a teleport tablet taking you right back to the castle once completing a run. But for you mains out there, be sure to bring your harpoon because you can restock on food at some of the islands local fishing spots.

Finally for the miner/smithers out there fighting for coal in the mining guild.

We have added a new mining spot, complete with its own furnace and anvil to allow you to smith without the need to bank.
