Tombs of Amascut


  • Added all new items found via Tombs of Amascut 1:1 with OSRS mechanics Tombs of Amascut Wiki
  • Masori will need to be fortified using fixed Morrigans instead of Armadyl to ensure it's not rendered useless
  • Lightbearer ring special restore will restore special 50% faster. The leagues perk is 20% but will not stack
  • Ornament kits for the weapons, cape, assembler, pet etc will be unlocked by completing high level raids. This will only apply once the 4 demi-bosses are released
  • Keris Partisan jewels will be available at a static rate of 1/10 per raid. These will cycle through so you cannot get duplicates until you have all 3


  • Upon launch of 2.0 the first 4 boss rooms will auto-complete, and you will be allowed to face the Wardens
  • After the first ~1-3 weeks of Vulcan 2.0, the remaining rooms will unlock and must be completed prior to Wardens
  • When the remaining rooms are enabled, the puzzle rooms will not be required (auto-skipped)
  • This is the full fight mirrored 1:1 with OSRS mechanics and invocations


  • At launch the following general raid invocations will be enabled:
    • Try Again, Persistence, Softcore Run, Hardcore Run - Setting the amount of deaths allowed for your team
    • Walk for it, Jog for it, Run for It, Sprint for It - Setting the amount of time you have to complete the raid

    • None of them
  • With increasing the invocation level, the raid will scale between Entry, Normal and Expert. This will increase the chance of unique rewards while increasing the HP, defence and other attributes of monsters in the raid



Wilderness Bosses - Artio, Spindel, Calvar'ion

  • Added the 3 new updated wilderness bosses, all located between 39-44 wilderness level
  • Each will drop a part to create the Voidwaker (korasi), and an upgrade to each of the 3 revenant weapons
  • Each teleport will take you directly outside their cave, but exiting their cave will place you in the escape caves
  • All pets can be metamorphed between the old and new versions of the boss looks
  • All bosses are 1:1 with OSRS mechanics and as such OSRS guides can be used
  • The easier variants of these bosses are also available at 20-25 wilderness in singles, but will have 3x rarer drops

  • Ties will result in a restart until there is a winner. Leaving the area or any form of x-log/disconnect will not impact the outcome
  • Win/loss stats are permanently saved and accessed via the tutor




  • Skotizo has been added within the Catacombs of Kourend, requiring an Ancient Totem to fight him
  • Ancient Totems can be received from any monster within the catacombs, with a higher drop rate the higher combat they are
  • Skotizo will not spawn the eyes around the room to reduce the tediousness of killing him, but will spawn minions
  • Skotizo will drop the Skotos pet and the dark claw for the slayer helmet recolor
  • As such previously purchased dark claws from the shop at home have been removed




  • Added Zalcano as a skilling boss to train Mining, Smithing & Runecrafting beneath Prifddinas
  • You will need to mine the glowing rocks, smelt the tephra and then imbue it to attack Zalcano
  • Similar to OSRS, she will drop boulders or pebbles in a random locations requiring you to move
  • She will spawn demonic symbols on the floor, with the orange ones damaging you, with the damage increasing the longer they've been active, and the blue ones boosting your damage while throwing tephra at her
  • She will spawn a Golem that will heal her if it is allowed to reach her, dropping tehpra when killed
  • Unlike OSRS, all 4 mining corners will always be active, and she will not shift them around the room to make it less tedious
  • She will also not go down during a shield phase, and instead will die once her HP bar is finished. Similar to Wintertodt, you will receive a large XP drop at the end of the fight in mining, smithing & runecrafting if you contributed enough
  • As such, previously obtained Zalcano pets have been removed. Zalcano will drop the pet and the Zalcano shard unlocking a new dragon pickaxe (or) variant



Deadman Mode / Wilderness PvP

  • Will now have a 10 minute timer restricting you from returning to a safe zone while skulled on the DMM world
  • If you enter, a guard will kill you, and all items will go to whomever has done the most damage. If there is no damage dealer, it will be treated as a PvM death
  • Items kept on death will now mirror OSRS on World 1 (3 unskulled +1 if protect item is on) Deadman worlds set it to 0 +1
  • FYI: Attempting to hop to world 1 with a skull will lock your account to world 2 until you return and wait out the skull timer

  • Adjusted all bonuses found on Donator Perks to suit new donator tiers and be more aligned to the economy



Theatre of Blood

Phantom Muspah

  • Added the new OSRS boss Phantom Muspah from Secrets of the North quest
  • Added the Venator bow and Saturated heart as notable drops
  • Added the Pet + Ancient Ice allowing you to transmog the pet once consumed
  • The Muspah will be as difficult to kill as on OSRS and is near 1:1 so an OSRS guide will assist you
  • The Venator bow will hit any NPC in a 2x2 radius of the original monster, and then a 2nd monster, regardless of size
  • The Venator bow will not require charges like on OSRS
  • The Imbued heart can be combined with 150,000 ancient essence to create the Saturated heart
  • 5 Venator shards can be combined into the Venator bow or crushed for 50,000 ancient essence
  • As such, the previous upgrade to imbued hearts has been removed


AFK Island

  • Zalcano has been removed as mining / runecrafting XP as it is now a dedicated skilling boss
  • Enhanced AFK Island has been simplified to just the magical obelisk. The obelisk will now grant 500k xp/hr in your lowest skill

  • Added missing attacks that were not possible on Vulcan previously (blood sacrifice, soul split phase, charge down aisle attack etc)
  • A mechanic exists on OSRS that requires a tank in mage armour. I've chosen not to add this and 3 other attacks.
  • Instead, prayer drain attacks will drain 3-5 prayer points per hit, and can be lowered to 1 point by wearing a spectral spirit shield
  • I have skipped the requirement to kill each minion (cruor, glacies, etc) in order. You can kill them all at the start to speed up at the fight
  • Nex will not do any chip damage until the final phase to make it less tedious provided you pray / move correctly
  • Nex will frequently drop ecumenical keys and as they're available from the Slayer shop so entry shouldn't be an issue
  • Nex will also drop 8 nihil shards for the mvp 100% of the time



New Realism game mode

    • Neither player can currently hold an active slayer task
    • Relogging or inviting a new partner will remove your old partner and it will become a solo task

    Community Town Board

    Future Updates

    Although I spent a ridiculous amount of hours on this update, there is still a lot I wanted to add but frankly ran out of time for a March release. The below items were started but were not finished in time, so I will be releasing them in batches over the coming months. I personally think this works out for the better, as it ensures a constant stream of new content vs 1 massive update and then just bug fixing.

    • Preset interface for gear setups
    • Leagues 3 - Shattered Relics
    • Realism Group ironman
    • Maximum hit splat & other people's hit splat tinting
    • More Combat Achievements - tied in with all of the new bosses we have (ToA, Nex etc)
    • Theatre of Blood (Hard mode)
    • Revenant maledictus boss
    • Galvek (ds2) boss
    • Automated name changing
    • PvP loot keys
    • Boss speed running - hiscores & announcements
    • Attack style saving for ranged & melee 


    I would also like to say a huge thank you to Polar who I'm sure most people in RSPS know. A majority of this would not be possible without his guidance over the past year. 

    Reminder there are massive giveaways and competitions happening on Discord when 2.0 launches - be sure to check out #competition and #giveaway on our Discord!
