We've had a few updates during/after the last open days, so I figured I'd fill you in.
You can no longer attack the same target as someone else whenever you like. This is now limited to special "multi-combat areas", which will display a Cross-swords icon (underneath the UnScape icon in the bottom right of screen, or above sidebar in resizable mode) when you enter them.
Attempting to attack something that is already under attack outside of these areas will cause you to receive a message stating that someone else is already attacking them.
Multi-target spells are now fixed for these areas, and will only hit the player/monster that you originally targeted.
PK Skulls and keeping some items upon death
First of all, you now keep your 3 best items (as judged based on runescape shop prices) when you die. This number becomes 0 if you happen to have a PK skull hovering over your head, and increases by 1 if you have the "Protect Items" prayer active.
Taking the first strike on another player in the wilderness without them having attacked you first will gain you a PK skull, which will disappear after 15 minutes of in-game time or whenever you die.
Attacking a player who hit you first will not cause you to gain a skull.
Gods Glory + God Spells
The Gods Glory mini-game is now functional and able to be played once again. I still plan on modifying it to be a little more engaging, but before I can do that I need to finish adding functionality to the NPCs (Particularly the ability for them to cast spells).
In other news, the 3 God Spells (Saradomin Strike, Claws of Guthix, Flames of Zamorak) are now available, and have their special effects which lower Prayer, Defence and Magic levels respectively.
You must be holding the particular God's staff (obtainable as a reward from God's Glory) to cast the spells, and the staffs can only autocast the one spell. I will be adding the "Charge" spell's ability soon.
Auto-retaliate + more saved when you log out
You can now enable the "Auto-retaliate" option in your "Player controls" menu (Emote list tab), which will cause you to automatically fight back immediately after receiving damage.
In addition to this, several things are now saved when you log out, either to make your life easier or to prevent people logging out to reset them.
- Walk/Run option
- PK Skulls
- Special attack energy
