Our deadly Ninja Team are hard at work on an awesome PvM update, where Death himself will offer Slayer-like tasks to take down some of Gielinor's toughest bosses.
This week we've introduced the first parts of this update. There's an in-game timer to show how quickly you prevail during instanced boss fights, and we're starting to track kill counts of relevant beasties, which will be viewable in an interface once the main update hits the game.
We've also released a batch of updates to Legacy Mode and the accompanying EoC improvements, in response to the feedback you've given us so far.
Upon entering an instanced boss fight, you'll now see a new, movable boss timer element in the interface. This will remain and keep counting up for as long as it takes the instanced boss to be defeated, and will announce the kill time in your chat box when it falls.
Note that the timer will not appear if more than a certain number of players are in the instance. This differs, depending on the boss:
Giant Mole - 1
TzTok-Jad - 1
Queen Black Dragon - 1
Zilyana - 1
Graardor - 1
Kree'arra - 1
K'ril Tsutsaroth - 1
Har-Aken - 1
Legiones - 2
Araxxor - 2
Kalphite King - 3
Nex - 3
Barrows: Rise of the Six - 4
Vorago - 7
Today, we've also added kill tracking of bosses and certain slayer monsters - listed below. You won't be able to see how many you've defeated until the full update arrives, but you can start racking up kills.
Your boss kill count will affect certain reward unlocks in the future - get a head start now!
