One change is that the rule governing 'untradeable items that break' would now take priority over this rule. Before this update, your items would be lost if the game world rebooted, or if you logged back into the wrong game world. Thatched roofs in Ardougne have once again been repaired. If you died in a mapped area, we'll mark the grave on your world map. For other chests that already have fees, no change would take place. Which of these approaches would you prefer for death mechanics across the game? In a related change, if you die inside one of the four God Wars Dungeon boss rooms, your Grave will appear outside. We've not forgotten that Gravestones in the other RuneScape occasionally lost items prematurely if lots of players' graves appeared in a small area, since the game couldn't handle so many items on the ground together. One change that will affect Ultimate Iron players, though, is the way dropped items behave in instanced areas without a retrieval feature. Some limits apply: The Gravestone's position will usually be within a few maptiles of the spot where you died, so you'll easily find it. We have not used the suggestion of basing it on alchemy prices because those seldom reflect the worth of an item, or its difficulty to re-obtain. Players who have a Zulrah kill-count of 50 or above will be asked to pay 100,000 coins (matching what is charged at Vorkath). You can find an entrance to Death’s Office near all the major respawn points. If you’re feeling exceptionally fancy – or if you die a lot and would like something nice to look at while you’re doing it – you can purchase the cosmetic Angel of Death Gravestone from Death. Some years ago we made some unpolled changes to how your items behave when you die in Old School RuneScape. These Gravestones would stay for 15 minutes, but the timer would count down only while you were online, and the Gravestone would not be wiped by a world rebooting. Their items (including untradeable items) will drop and remain on the ground for an hour, on the game world where they died. However, that's still a better chance for retrieval than if they'd dropped inside the instanced area. Even with all the protections that have been added since 2015, 'fixed' would still only mean that we've not yet found any problems. How this works depends on where you are in the game, and how you died. This isn't how other items would act if you died again - it's a special exception we're offering for food and potions to preserve the existing behaviour for players. What about the permanent death-drop holders like Torfinn? Came back to osrs only to quit again due to new death mechanics. If you have any items you don’t really want, you can offer them up as collateral to Death’s Coffer, which you can find in the Office. In the Toxic Blowpipe example, this would be an amount of Zul’rah scales equivalent to the charges remaining. We know that currently the game worlds aren't guaranteed to offer you good connections, so players have wondered why we don't wait until everything's 'fixed'. One change is that the rule governing 'untradeable items that break' would now take priority over the 'untradeable items turn to cash in deep Wilderness' rule, as described for non-UIM accounts above. How much is the fee for the new Gravestones? As part of this update, we'd like to offer to move the items out of those instances, so that they'll drop on the ground in the standard game world for an hour. They will continue to reclaim their items from the priestess for free, without use of that chest menu. Furthermore, this isn't expected to be the only cash sink added to the game this year. Here's something to think about: back in February we offered to move Graves to the outsides of the four God Wars Dungeon boss rooms, since getting in there could take so much longer. We believe this change would not remove all value from those, since it's still helpful to be able to enter the boss rooms quickly.). We'll therefore provide more details about it in this version of the blog - and, as covered above, this won't affect UIM anyway. These would remain in your inventory or remain equipped, as they do now, but will break. 18:35pm BST: Players attempting to reclaim Amulets of Glory (6) (including the trimmed variant) from Death's Office will find that there's a small reclaim fee per amulet, when they have 10 or more of them stored. it'd be lost if the world reboots, and it wouldn't appear on other worlds. Unlike menus such as Torfinn's display, the Gravestone's display would be able to stay open during combat, and be moved around the screen for your convenience like the World Map can for desktop users. The timer will pause if you become inactive or if you log out, so those with poor internet connections won’t be punished should they drop offline. The rest will be dropped near where you died, and the location will be marked with a Gravestone. Barrows gloves - no fee due to low value of item. In particular, we talked about our benchmark, a hypothetical 'above average' player whose completion times informed our decisions. Items that turn into coins if dropped during PvP (such as the Barrelchest Anchor) will continue to do so, but will usually remain in your Inventory if you die in PvM. Not as much as some have expected. (For comparison, the game currently gives only 75%.) Now we would like to get on with addressing this as we promised before. Ultimately, all that we ask is that we all respect one another in-game. That boss is quite lucrative, so we would like to introduce some risk for players who die there.
