Pestilent Bloat has far too low hp at the moment, wasn't like that yesterday.
His health on OSRS is around 2k.

If the Scythe is equipped and you manually or auto-cast cast a spell, the spell hits 3 times like the Scythe does.
Nice catch about the scythe.

As far as the monsters their HP is concerned, it scales with the party size, so if you have a party of 1, they will have 1/5th of their normal hitpoints. If you have a party of 2, it's 2/5th etc.

Unless you guys think it shouldn't be like that of course.

I couldn't reproduce this particular issue, can someone confirm this and possibly make a video or something?
I'll try my best to get a video but for the time being I'm going to have some issues reproducing it, I'm pretty sure it happened on the 2nd-3rd nylo spawn with a 5 man team. Issue being getting 5 people on the test server on one team but I can try when most of the EU is awake, otherwise that's all I have to offer on that one

Pestilent Bloat - the barrier hitboxes are really big and it is easy to misclick on them when trying to run to a square along the center wall.

OSRS only scales to a party size of 3:
OSRS Wiki wrote:The bosses will also have their hitpoints scaled depending on the team size. With a team of three or fewer players the bosses will have 75% of their original hitpoints, with four players the bosses will have 87.5% of their original hitpoints and a team of five players will leave the bosses' hitpoints unchanged.

The Maiden of Sugadinti:
5 members = 3500
4 members = 3000
1-3 members = 2625

Pestilent Bloat:
5 members = 2000
4 members = 1700
1-3 members = 1500

etc.

Honestly don't really mind scaling it down more for smaller / solo teams. But I think it should definitely be an uneven scale, so at 1 player the bosses would still have 50% hp, instead of 20%.
Feel free to send me a message, I'd gladly have a chat!

Don't scale down any more. I feel like Bloated in particular is way too low in hitpoints as is.

Vorkath - If you kill Vorkath when he spits poison in the air which lands on you, the poison will keep ticking away at your health even when Vorkath is defeated. My understanding is if Vorkath dies, the poison should simply disappear. Almost died to this earlier thinking Vorkath was dead. The poison disappeared only when it respawned.

Here's another example, Vorkath is dead but the poison lingers.

I can't log in on Candy Bars on the test server for some reason. I'm using the same password on the live server and the test server.

Pls help

That's probably because the accounts on the test server were last updated just a few hours before you last changed your password on Candy Bars. I have updated your password on the test server.

Done some further testing on the test client.

Cerberus - No problems with it's mechanics.

Kraken - No problems with it's mechanics.

Skotizo - No problems with it's mechanics. I did notice that the Dark Claw drop does not have a message in the chat though. Considering this is one of the collector's pieces and reasons for slaying Skotizo it might be nice to include a drop message for it. Also, whilst on the topic you may want to seriously consider this thread - viewtopic.php?f=73&t=77401&p=685654#p685654 - in an attempt to make Skotizo a more interesting boss. As it stands, it takes far too long to get a totem and the rewards are simply not worth it.
