- Nerfed Skilling contract exp rewards further, the formula is as followed: levelRequired x 50 = exp received (previously 75)

- Removed Training staff, Training bow and Training sword having hidden definitions to increase accuracy

- There's been a bit of debate about how we should handle game mode changing, and due to this, we've decided at the start of Ataraxia there will be no game mode changing through NPCs, methods may arise post-launch but for the integrity of the race to max competitions there'll be none

- Added new Mining contracts to Mine: Orichalicite, Drakolith, Necrite, Phasmatite, Banite, Light animica and Dark animica
- Removed the ;;bank command perk, this perk while awesome unfortunately decimated the opportunities we had to expand on certain content when we had to consider the fact anyone could void it for $20

- Nerfed Skilling champion reward amounts, removed Uncut onyx, Crystal triskelion rewards

[+] Store Additions

- If you take a look: https://ataraxia-ps.com/store
- There's a lot of items now on the Store, prices aren't finalised on anything apart from Void equipment
- Amulet of Farming: This amulet provides teleports to every Herb, Tree and Fruit tree patch:



- Donor Transfer Scroll: This scroll will allow you to transfer all of your perks and Donation total to another account, however, it will disable the account you use it on permanently. This item was added as in the past, we constantly transferred donation totals and it took a lot of time out of the Moderator's duties, this way, it's in the player's control.
- Name Change Scroll: This scroll will be redeemable with any Administrator to permanently change your account name. We've previously done this based on Donation rank/in-game gp for the Name change/I just do it for free anyway, now it'll cost a set amount and only be redeemable through this.
- Another large change is the addition of all Skilling outfits to the Store, these are only the base sets like Artisan's, Golden mining etc. You can buy each set for $5 or every set for $75
- Herbicide: This can also be purchased from Dungeoneering, it'll grind any dropped Herbs into Herblore experience
- Seedicide: This item will grind any dropped Seeds into Farming experience
- Spring Cleaner: This item breaks down metal drops into their base components and sends the result to your bank


[+] Donor Zone

- The new Donor zone is completed, with huge help finding the area from Xenthium and various beta testers, the new zone is done
- To enter the zone you will require at least Bronze member ($20 donated)
- Instead of a wall of text, it's best to walk you through and then I will list the requirements for each object!


- $20 Objects: Wonky tree
- $20 NPCs: Barrel of cavefish, Bronze Donor shop
- $50 Objects: Blurite Rock
- $50 NPCs: Barrel of rocktails
- $100 Objects: Donator Harp, Robust Glass Machine
- $100 NPCs: Barrel of Great White Sharks
- $250 Objects: Dark/Light Animica Rocks
- $500 Objects: Precious gem stall, Portables, Money tree


[+] Slayer Update

- The Slayer update is finally upon us, something I wanted to ensure we had on the launch was the RS3 slayer system, with different Slayer masters, every task available, task weighting, task preferring, task extending, the proper Slayer rewards and all of the bits in between
- Armar has been working hard on the new Slayer system and happy to announce it's done!
- To start, you can talk to the Slayer master at home, (default is Turael): 


- When you progress with Slayer, you'll unlock more Slayer masters, you can access these by talking to Turael and selecting: 



- Doing so will replace Turael with the Master of your choice, you can then get a task from their task list rather than Turael's
- Slayer VIP Tickets have been added! You can redeem these to be offered two potential tasks when getting a new one! Like this:


- With this update brings a lot more variety to Slayer! With almost every task in the game
- You can find a detailed list about what Master has what tasks here: https://runescape.wiki/w/Slayer_assignment

- We have removed the following tasks: Brine rats, Catablepon, Fleshcrawlers, Mogres, Sea Snakes, Shades, Molanisks, Killerwatts, Terror dogs, Scabarites, Suqahs, Warped tortoises, Warped terrorbirds, Creatures of Daemonheim, Stalker creatures and Ghouls.
- Along with this update, the Lost grove and Anachronia creatures have been added! All Lost grove creatures and Anachronia creatures have been added with their RS3 combat mechanics and drops!
- There's too much to cover without being a huge wall of text, tl;dr RS3 slayer is added to Ataraxia, it's perfect.



The Update doesn't look as big as previous, however, the content involved in this update is probably 5x the others.

We're making swift progress and on track for release before April. When we know closer to the date is when the date will be announced.

does the change in prices affect our donor status at all? like if you bought the bank command perk does that mean the 20$ will be taking from your total or doesn't that change at all?

Should just get your dollars in the bank upon rerelease, then up to you what you want to buy.
