17 August Updates: Mimic, Bloodhound and a new trial developer

Post by Mike » Wed Aug 17, 2022 3:45 pm

First of all, a huge congratulations to @Raj for becoming our newest trial developer! He has been working on new features and a number of bugfixes for the past couple of months, which I am currently working on to review, improve where needed and release onto the live server. The first of these updates is now out, more will follow soon.

In today's update: the Mimic and the Bloodhound are here!

When completing an Elite or Master Treasure Trail, you'll have a 1/40 chance (Elite) or a 1/15 chance (Master) of obtaining a Mimic casket! To complete the Mimic casket, you need to teleport to (and defeat) the Mimic, using the right-click teleport option on the casket. Opening a completed Mimic casket will award two rolls on the drop table of the casket which originally spawned it. You can only have one Mimic casket on your account at any time. The Mimic Casket can be converted to a regular (tradeable) casket by using the "convert" option on the casket.

Dying during the Mimic fight is a safe death, with a couple exceptions:
  • Hardcore ironman status will be lost.
  • Your Mimic casket will be converted to a regular casket.

When dying with a Mimic casket in your inventory in any unsafe way, it will be converted to a regular casket before your death, regardless of whether the regular casket would be protected due to its price. The regular casket will then be protected according to its price.




In other news, the Bloodhound has also been added! Every time you complete a clue step, you'll have a chance at receiving the Bloodhound pet. The chance will depend on the level of clue step you're completing, and the rates are listed below:
  • Easy - 1/5000
  • Medium - 1/4250
  • Hard - 1/3500
  • Elite - 1/3000
  • Master - 1/2500

Additionally, if you have a Lucky Bloodhound following you while completing a clue step, there's a 5% chance that you'll complete an extra clue step. This effect can trigger multiple times for the same clue scroll.

W000t thanks @Raj for the update, looking forward to all the upcoming content.

My initial reaction is that these rates are wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too rare for how common our clue scrolls are. I think we should consider increasing the drop rate of bloodhound and/or making clues way more accessible.

Just looking at the highscores for clue completion (idr when this started getting tracked), It seems like no one can realistically expect to get bloodhound as a drop.
