Zulrah: getting there

Postby Mike » Thu May 11, 2017 1:50 am

Today, I managed to finish the last of the 4 rotations as they work in OSRS. The timings, attacks, cloud & snakeling spawn locations, the whole lot of it.

What's left on my to-do list:
> Add Zulrah as (blockable) slayer task in elite tasks
> Allow players to hit a submerging Zulrah
> A few minor improvements to the melee version


Being worked on:
> Add the droptable
> Add serpentine helm
> Add toxic blowpipe
> Add trident of the swamp


Done:
> Make the necessary NPC's immune to venom
> Make Zulrah & snakelings apply venom
> Add antivenom and antivenom+ potions
> Add the pet & lucky pet with transformations
> Work out the rest of the red (melee) Zulrah stage
> Add venom into the server as a stronger version of poison

Is venom going to work like it does on osrs?

Wow, Mike. Great moves, keep it up.

> Figure out the exact coordinates Zulrah attacks you in during melee stage (appear to be 5 coordinates - 2 at the tips of the island, 1 in the middle between the pillars and 2 on the sides). Also figure out what spots are safe from melee attacks.


No spot is "safe" from melee attacks, Zulrah can hit you from anywhere you just have to move before the attack takes place, if he hits you he also stuns you.

> Figure out if Zulrah's magic attacks also apply venom


Only Zulrah's third form the blue one can venom a player, if the player successfully tanks or blocks with prayer then venom isn't applied, if Zulrah was to do even 1 damage in the blue form then the player is venomed.

> Figure out if toxic clouds apply the actual venom to the player (aside from applying 1 - 3 unblockable damage each tick a person is inside a toxic cloud)


Yes, they do apply Venom.

> Add serpentine helm


Make sure venom and poison can't be applied to the player assuming they're wearing this helmet.

I know about the serpentine helmet's function, but thank you for pointing out all the details - I can surely use those to verify my information.

Can someone confirm that only the blue Zulrah form can envenom you (with both its magic and ranged attacks)?
Also, do both melee and magic snakelings apply venom? If so, how often? I'd guess once every 4 attacks or so. As for the clouds, I'd also guess that every tick you're inside a cloud, there's a 1/4 chance to get envenomed.


As for venomous items, we are planning to allow the toxic blowpipe & toxic staff of the dead in both PvP and PvM, we just have to make sure it's balanced and not too overpowered. I don't think we would add the venom effect exactly the same way it is in OSRS, since that buildup of unblockable damage from 6 (with +2 every 20 seconds) is indeed very strong.

If you don't add it as is on osrs, people will bitch. People will just have to learn to antivenom/antipoison
