Update #31: Blackjack Rework, New Donator Rank, Servant Pet & Instance Item Reclaimer

Recommended Posts

This took me quite a while due to the blackjack system since rewriting code is a lengthier task than writing new code, but it certainly was worth it! Next update #32 we will be working on lots of suggested ideas, QoLs and improving existing features. Feel free to suggest on the forums or on our discord.

Blackjack Rework
A task that was long in my mind since I have written this blackjack system approx. 5 years ago. It lacked a few functionalities which blackjack can't do without.

  • Which functionalities were added?
    • There are now 4 decks and a shuffle only happens at the end of a round. The shuffle happens between 50-70% of the total deck.
    • You can now decide your move before it's your turn, pre-decisions will show next to your name.
    • You can now split at your initial hand when both cards are matching. (initial hand = first decision)
    • Blackjack now pays 3:2.
    • At an ace split you won't be able to hit, blackjack payouts also apply for split hands (3:2).
    • You can now only double at your initial hand.
    • When the dealer has a face card, it will always check whether the dealer has a blackjack and auto-end the round with the dealer winning.
    • When the dealer has an ace as the first card, it will ask all seats whether they want to insure their bets for 50% of their bet. If you insure it and the dealer has a blackjack you will be refunded your bet, if you also had a blackjack you will win if you had insurance and draw if you didn't.
    • The dealer has the ability to set min. and max. bet.
    • The dealer must have 400% of the total pot in order to fund every double and split.
  • Which UI changes were made?
    • The interface is now semi-transparent, that way you are able to see the surrounding, who's at the table, walking etc.
    • The dealer and the seater will be able to see their profit at the left-top, the profit will save as long as you are seated.
    • The status of the seat is now shown below at the card points amount instead of at the name. Status being whether it's your turn or that you lost, bust, won or have a blackjack.
    • We have redone the way you bet, we have replaced it with buttons, new bet and rebet. You can rebet if you have bet the round before.


Instance Item Reclaimer
You can now claim back your items through the item reclaimer system after you die in an instance.
You will receive three free unlocks, after that every unlock will cost 200,000 gp.

  • Where can I reclaim my items?
    • At the Death NPC which can be found right next to the Town crier, quick teleport being ::guide.
  • Which instances does this apply for?
    • Any instance where you will lose your items upon death, e.g. Zulrah, Vorkath, Hydra, Cerberus


New Donator Rank: Royal Rank
The best donator rank ingame which you can obtain by having 100.000 total credits.

  • What are the perks?
    • All the perks you had with the diamond rank, type ::benefits ingame or visit the Knowledge base on the forums for more information.
    • You will receive an exclusive Royal outfit and a Servant pet after talking with the Town crier.
    • A 40% increased droprate on monster drops.
    • A 400% buff on PK Drop rewards you receive from killing players.
    • Outside the Wilderness the prayer drain will slow down by 75%.
  • What does the Servant pet do?
    • The pet will pickup the coins on every player kill from the ground if you have inventory space.
    • The pet will pickup the PK Point tickets on every player kill from the ground if you have inventory space.
    • The pet will pickup the event tickets on every player kill from the ground if you have inventory space.
    • The pet will pickup the coins from the ground on every monster kill if you have inventory space.
    • You are able to teleport directly to your slayer task.
    • You are able to teleport directly to Zulrah and the Corporeal beast. (safezone)


Other updates

  • You can now ask where your slayer task is located through Duradel or through the Enchanted gem.
