  2/13/2024: Valentine's event rerun, Valentine's battle pass, Fragment of Seren, more!
Posted by: Ene - 02-14-2024, 12:09 AM - Forum: Server Updates - No Replies

Hey Etherealians,

Today's update brings a few new things and some needed QoL and bugfixes; the most important ones being the new battle pass system and a new donator boss, the Fragment of Seren! Let's dive right in!

Battle Pass - Valentines' Season

We finally have a battle pass and we're starting it off with the Valentines' battle pass! You can access the new battle pass with either the commands ::bp/::battlepass or via your journal tab!

[Image: 9W3bp7x.png]

This will bring up the new battle pass interface, so let's break it down:

[Image: bbOz9xC.png]

On the top you'll see your battle pass level and experience; experience is gained by completing dailies and weeklies (as well as a little from voting), so just play the game as you normally do! Think of it as an added reward from simply playing the game as you would. You'll see that the current season ends on March 31st, 2024; this means that you will not be able to claim loot or gain experience for this particular pass after this date! I've ensured that the experience gains are sufficient enough to be able to get all levels by that date without having to grind away, so don't worry. We'll be taking feedback to see if we need to adjust experience throughout. 

On the upper right you'll see that you can claim loot - this will claim all battle pass loot for the levels you've achieved thus far; sending it straight to your bank (or inventory for UIMs). You can also view your dailies and weeklies in this new handy interface!

[Image: PDl4HWz.png]

[Image: PeTVrFO.png]

Finally, in the bottom you'll see rewards for both the free and premium pass - yes, all players can get rewards! Unique rewards include:

Valentine's cape - a fire cape reskin for valentine's! This is rewarded from completing the free battle pass.

[Image: rAx6G7y.png]

Pink partyhat - a festive new partyhat recolor - rewarded from purchasing the premium battle pass.

[Image: xDPXDAZ.png]

Valentino - a new pet valentine's impling! Valentino can be leveled up to 3, and changes the ruby bolt spec to heal rather than damage you! The heal is more potent depending on pet level - 1 Valentino is obtained through the free battle pass and 2 from the premium.

[Image: g0t1Icn.png]

Sword of hearts - A sword that provides great offensive stats with a nice bow on top! Obtained from the premium battle pass.

[Image: w6AmaOK.png]

Sword of hearts (i) - An enchantment to the original sword of hearts, granting it extra firepower as well as a passive effect; a 10% chance against NPCs to drain its attack and strength by 5%, stacking up to 10 times! Obtained from the premium battle pass as a recipe.

[Image: HRWxbce.png]

Additionally, you'll see mystery caches, bonds, and loads more items scattered throughout the battle pass!

Fragment of Seren

[Image: 9suM1Ee.png]

Carefully watching over donator island through its lifecycle, the Fragment of Seren ensures the people of the island are not truly free to roam. Dare to disturb its rest and you'll be rewarded handsomely.

The Fragment of Seren is a new donator boss accessed via the Rebel Scout NPC in donator island! Boasting 1250 HP and a rather weak ranged attack, it should be fairy easy to kill for most mid-high level donators wishing to get some extra daily loot. You will only be able to receive rewards from Seren once per day, but you may challenge it as many times as you wish until you win! This is a SAFE encounter. You must be a ruby donator tier or higher to fight this boss.

New drops include:

Fragmented lamps - Rub to receive experience in a skill of your choice.
Skilling supply box - Open to receive skilling loot in a skill of your choice.
Well of Goodwill token - Acts as 25m coins to the well of goodwill.
Weekly reset ticket - Reset your weeklies with this, but only if you haven't done any weeklies this week yet.

You will receive rolls on the drop table depending on your donator rank as well! Double drop rate will not affect this boss encounter.

Ruby - 1 roll
Diamond - 2 rolls
Dragonstone - 3 rolls
Onyx - 4 rolls
Ethereal - 5 rolls
Arzinian - 7 rolls

Valentines' Implings

Valentines' implings have returned! Refer to the previous event for more infohttps://ethereal-ps.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=413

The basic gist is that valentines' implings may spawn while skilling or PvMing, which you can interact with to receive a Valentines' mystery cache! You can receive cosmetic rewards as well as some powerful weaponry and armor from it, so view the old update post for full details!

Quality of Life Changes

- Wilderness pets have been buffed;
Callisto pet now gives a 10% accuracy and damage boost per level against NPCs while using crush weaponry, Venenatis pet now gives a 15% boost to blood money upon player kill, Vet'ion pet now gives a whopping 7x prayer experience when using the wilderness chaos altar, and Scorpia pet now doubles ALL larran's key drops.

- A Runelite overlay for extreme aura activation has been added.

- The completionist cape requirements for Extreme mode players have been updated - you now only need level 110 in each skill to receive one. 120s are still required for the 120 capes though.

- Extreme capes should now count as a 120 cape if the player has 120 in the respective skill.

- Thanks to the work of Remington, the !lvl command for the Runelite chat commands plugin should now correctly work!

In other news:
- Adjusted the rate of bracelets of ethereum from revenants.
- Hopefully fixed an issue that caused the Nightmare's grasping claws attack to cause some server lag.
- Ethereum sent straight to the bracelet of ethereum should now correctly be logged in a player's collection log.
- Fixed a bug where using the dialogue to sacrifice your fire cape into the inferno would not give access to the inferno.
- You can now receive noted planks from donator zone trees if you have a noted resources buff currently running.
- Fixed a bug where the wrong ID for babydragon bones were being used.

  12/25/2023: Winter event 2023, drop rate adjustments, more!
Posted by: Ene - 12-25-2023, 08:30 AM - Forum: Server Updates - No Replies

Hey Etherealians,

Today's update brings the 2023 Winter event to the game, with some new toys to play with - as well as some drop rate adjustments to help speed up the mid/late game grinding!

Winter Event 2023

The first of the major updates today is the new 2023 Winter event! You'll notice that our home area has been revamped to give a winter-y feel!

[Image: E8bzX5g.jpg]

Interacting with the Christmas tree at home opens the new Advent calendar - which should give rewards to players for simply logging in for an hour and voting for the server! Try to collect all 12 rewards, which includes a brand new cosmetic, the Icy santa hat, some other useful rewards, and more!

[Image: RQ0uga7.png]

Diango at home is the host of the new event - teleporting players to the new event area when his snow globe needs filling! You'll notice run energy drains here as well - make sure you try to be lightweight for reasons below - for the new event!

[Image: 1Tij5Tn.png]

When the globe needs filling, you can grab snowy knights from the patches here:

[Image: oVPHHtB.png]

The catch is that each patch gives a different color of snowy knight, and the snow globe likes a particular one at a time! So make sure you try to deposit the correct color as much as possible!

[Image: 12EmNYZ.png]

Now for the rewards:

The top 5 players in the event are given more candy cane tokens - the new event currency - than others, with the first place getting the most! They also have a higher chance to get a snow globe specific reward!

Santa's mini-sack - exclusive to participating in the snow globe event, with a higher chance depending on your participation.
[Image: SwidF1X.png]

Icy imp pet - a potential reward from the snow globe event as well, grants a 5% per level accuracy and damage boost when casting ice spells, up to level 3.
[Image: QQNlgw8.png]

Candy cane tokens can also be used to purchase items in the new event shop! 
[Image: cNlfmX2.png]

Candy cane tokens can also be obtained via skilling, PvM, voting, and pest control if you don't want to mainly do the main snow globe! The main unique reward is a recipe for the new Santa's gift-wrapper, a new BiS ballista that has a special effect of guaranteeing your max hit for the first hit against a monster!

[Image: Vy24Jag.png]

Boss Drop Rate Adjustments

I've adjusted some drop rates for some less-desirable bosses due to their high drop rates.

Elite kree'arra and Elite general graardor now drop 3 items at a time instead of 2.
Dagannoth supreme, rex, and prime now drop pets at a 1/250 chance instead of 1/1000.
Cryptic pharaoh has had its unique drop rate increased by 2x.
Xamphur has had its unique drop rates increased by 2x across all invocations.
Night-gazer Khighorahk has had its unique drop rates increased by 1.5x in high invo, and 2x in med/low invos.
In other news:
-
Pearl fishing rods should now work correctly for anglerfish and kyren fish.

  12/12/2023: Slayer diary, Mutated slayer creatures, more!
Posted by: Ene - 12-13-2023, 04:10 AM - Forum: Server Updates - No Replies

Hey Etherealians,

Today's update brings a new achievement diary - the Slayer diary! Completing this diary will provide some much-needed benefits and QoL to the Slayer skill!

Slayer Achievement Diary

The Slayer achievement diary can be accessed with all the other achievement diaries in the achievement interface. Completing each tier grants the following rewards:

Easy: Slayer tasks will award 5 more slayer points per task.
Medium: Coin pouches upon completing slayer tasks will be doubled.
Hard: A new type of superior - mutated slayer creatures (shown below) - will have a 1/100 chance of spawning upon a successful slayer task kill.
Elite: Slayer supply drops from slayer task monsters will be doubled.

Finally, upon completing the entire diary you'll be rewarded with a Slayer master's bracelet recipe, allowing you to create the new BiS slayer bracelet! This bracelet will provide great all-around stats, provide the benefits of both the Bracelet of slaughter and Expeditious bracelet when toggled, as well as a 5% damage and accuracy increase to your Slayer target.

[Image: FizQRCV.png]

Other rewards from completing the diary include:

Golden mask and Golden slayer helmet (i) - Cosmetic recolors of their originals. The slayer helmet (i) can be obtained by combining the Golden mask with an imbued slayer helmet.

[Image: FNHd647.png]

[Image: s4swAwI.png]

Slayer equalizer (perk) - Increases the minimum damage against your Slayer target by 3% of your max hit per perk level as long as the hit was successful.
34
Mutated slayer creatures

[Image: Qycb1ug.png]

Upon completing the hard tasks of the Slayer diary, there will be a 1/100 chance to spawn a Mutated slayer superior. These creatures are pushovers to kill, but boast a pretty decent amount of health and provide great Slayer experience, as well as 3 rolls in a nice supply drop table! There is also a 1/150 chance per kill to receive a Berserker icon (from mutated jellies), Archers icon (from mutated slimes), and Seers icon (from mutated killerwatts), which can be combined with 3 berserker rings, 3 archer rings, and 3 seers rings respectively to create 3 new rings - the Ultor ring, venator ring, and magus ring! These rings are buffed compared to their OSRS counterparts.

[Image: 5ntTjCD.png]

[Image: kMRGAAV.png]

[Image: maQIYrq.png]

In addition, there is a 1/100 chance per kill to receive a perk scroll for the new Engorged hearts perk, which increases the stat boosts from imbued hearts and its variants by +3 and reduces its cooldown by 2 minutes.

Elite GWD Improvements

The elite godwars bosses have gained some supplies from their normal counterparts, and will now drop items from their original bosses! This means you can now receive bandos pieces, armadyl pieces, etc. from their elite counterparts!

Additionally, the drop rate of godsword hilts have been increased to help y'all fill up your logs faster.
In other news:
- The KQ head drop rate has been increased.
- Fixed a bug where using a donator rank transfer scroll would freeze a character if they transferred all of their rank.
- Changed the delay between eating the bottomless pile of candy to be treated as a potion instead.
- You can now combine the max cape and an extreme cape (t5) to create an extreme max cape.
-
Checking a seed pack now gives you an option to bank all of the seeds in the pack.
- Increased the grace time between successfully claimed votes to 36 hours rather than 24 to extend your vote streak.
- Fixed a text bug when handing in marks of grace as an Extreme player.
- Extreme players now have a 50% DDR cap instead of 40% at t3 and above.

  11/14/2023: A (late) Fall event, Vote interface, more!
Posted by: Ene - 11-14-2023, 06:58 AM - Forum: Server Updates - Replies (1)

Hey Etherealians,

Today's update brings a new event - that will hopefully run through Christmas as well! (We have an event stored for that too, so don't worry!)

A (pretty late) Fall Event

Y'all will notice a new area to the northeast of the home bank! Our beloved Killer, the main event host for the Halloween event has lost all of his bats again, and he knows it's due to the mysterious island that's popped up!

[Image: dDz8dsY.jpg]

You'll see a bunch of new amenities in this island, namely two new monsters: Halloweenies and Pumpkabats. These are very easy NPCs to kill as long as you have Prayer; they have guaranteed drops of our new event currency, Bat token (2023), as well as two new uniques!

Bat necklace: A new ranged necklace, offering more Ranged accuracy than the Necklace of anguish but a little bit less ranged strength.

[Image: 4d2RFwV.png]

Skeletal nunchaku: A new pair of nunchaku that has a unique effect of hitting twice! It's got great accuracy but low strength.
[Image: bYbT5V8.png]

These have a flat drop rate of 1/517 from the new monsters, so get to grindin'!

These monsters also have a chance of dropping the new Fall mystery cache, that has a load of Halloween-related cosmetics and the new exclusive Fall h'ween mask, which is only obtainable through this event! You'll also see a recipe as a result of the new chest, that creates the new Terrifying charm, a new pocket slot item that provides great all-around stats.

[Image: lL5p00k.png]

Over to the northeast section of the island has two new AFK skilling nodes, the Large pile of candy (Herblore, Agility, and Thieving nodes) and the Unusually colored tree (Woodcutting, Crafting, and Firemaking nodes). Killer also resides here to give you access to the old Halloween event shop as well as the new one! The new bat tokens can be spent on the new Witch set, providing great offensive Magic bonuses and has a passive effect of a 20% accuracy and damage increase when using powered staves!

The Bottomless pile of candy is obtainable from the Large pile of candy skilling node at a rate of 1/2500 actions. This functions as an unlimited supply of Purple Sweets, healing you for 1-3 HP per interaction and never depletes.
[Image: Oi9v8Sm.png]

[Image: ovnsYNs.png]

Finally, a new event can appear every 3 hours - the Pumpkin totem! This event works a bit differently from our past event bosses - a pumpkin totem will spawn in the middle of the event area and can only be damaged by a designated event weapon; for example, it may say it can only be damaged by shortbows, so make sure you only use weapons that work as shortbows (preferably one that has shortbow in its name because I can't account for all)! The top 5 damage dealers will receive a fall event chest in addition to guaranteed bat tokens, as well as the #1 dealer will receive two chests! All players have a chance to receive a new Jack-o-lantern pet as well for participating!

[Image: vmceNET.png]

Voting QoL

A new voting interface has been added, showing the player's current streak and potential streak rewards! It also shows when the player can next extend their streak so they don't happen to claim too early, as well as an option to claim their vote buff so the player can ensure they are out of any interface-closing activities before they claim their buff.

[Image: YgOIwfC.png]

In other news:
- Fixed an issue where the wrong text was displayed when completing a weekly/daily at the max Extreme cape rank.
- Fixed an issue with a Wilderness scroll placeholder.
- Added extreme capes to Mac's skillcape shop.
- Fixed a bug where ultimate ironmen would not receive a skillcape.
- Fixed a bug where the Veteran/Extreme title will be applied to a player on another game mode.
- The golden ticket event should automatically end after 2 hours.
- Fixed a bug where collection log kills would not show properly after the addition of Night-gazer.

  10/23/2023: Wilderness reward addition, upcoming Extreme mode, more!
Posted by: Ene - 10-24-2023, 04:43 AM - Forum: Server Updates - No Replies

Hey Etherealians,

This is a preliminary patch notes for the upcoming Tuesday, October 24th update, which is when Extreme mode will officially launch. All the other updates will come today.

Extreme Mode

This update will bring the new game mode, Extreme mode! You can select this in our new starter selection screen by choosing the 2.5x experience multiplier. 

[Image: 72X1ylu.png]

Note that once you have chosen Extreme mode, you cannot go to a different game mode! This is due to all the unique challenges and rewards associated w/ extreme accounts. You'll also notice this new starter selection screen shows your starter items!

[Image: tXm8RKG.png]

So what's special about extreme mode? First off, you'll notice you receive an Extreme cape (t1) at the start. You can access teleports that are typically reserved to the max cape by clicking the "Teleports" option, or see some extreme features by selecting that option! The extreme features opens up a new interface, the first tab being cape upgrading:

[Image: ia5cIkl.png]

Cape upgrading - You'll notice your cape only starts at tier 1 to start - but your cape can be upgraded all the way to tier 5! This is done by reaching a certain total level and fulfilling all the challenges that the tier brings you.

[Image: ia5cIkl.png]

Each tier brings a certain amount of benefits! These benefits will be permanently active in your account regardless  The benefits are as follows: 

Tier 2:
- You have a 5% chance to deal 2x damage outside of PvP situations.
- 20% chance to automatically note a gathered resource.

Tier 3:
- You can store a pet soul in your extreme cape.
- Resetting your active relic set effect is now free.

Tier 4:
- Summoned thralls will last twice as long.
- You will have 10% increased accuracy outside of PvP situations.

Tier 5:
- You will receive 50% more daily and weekly points.
- You will have a 10% chance to triple a NPC drop.

Clicking the upgrade button when not having fulfilled all the criteria will simply give you another cape of your current tier if you have lost it.

Pet aura - Upon reaching tier 3 of your extreme cape, you'll have access to the pet aura tab! This allows you to store a pet with a pet effect of your choosing, so you can permanently have a pet effect alongside another! This will not consume your pet, but note that having two of the same pet (having it stored and having it out) will not stack.

[Image: XesXClZ.png]

Extreme aura - The strongest aura we got, exclusive to extreme players! Extreme players can activate this aura every 12 hours to gain the following benefits:

[Image: vuNZPAL.png]

We'll also be running a competition for extreme players upon release, which is the following:

  9/21/2023: The Dungeon of Rot, QoL, more!
Posted by: Ene - 09-21-2023, 09:21 PM - Forum: Server Updates - No Replies

Hey Etherealians,
Today's update brings a brand-new dungeon geared towards early-mid game players with some benefits to endgame players as well! I've also brought some bugfixes and QoL with this patch, and I'll mention the others that I've only posted on the Discord that I made over the past few weeks as well.

The Dungeon of Rot

In the dim and eerie depths of the world, a sinister revelation awaits the bravest of adventurers. As you traverse the treacherous terrain of the newly unveiled "Dungeon of Rot" the unmistakable stench of decay fills the air, while grotesque monstrosities shrouded in putrid, decaying flesh lurk in every shadow.


The heart of this nightmarish underworld conceals a dreadful secret: the Night-gazer Khighorahk, a monstrous behemoth that embodies the very essence of corruption. At the end of your harrowing journey through the festering labyrinth, you will confront this abomination, a massive eyeball that looms ominously in the depths. Its malevolent gaze pierces through the darkness, and it hungers for the souls of those foolish enough to enter its domain.

The Dungeon of Rot is a new dungeon aimed towards early-mid game players hoping to get their hands on some upgrades from t60-t70 gear but don't wish to go for the elite GWD grind just yet. You can access this new dungeon by going to the teleport interface -> Dungeon of Rot in the dungeons section.

The Dungeon of Rot is filled with 3 new creatures and a boss - however, the boss is a bit complicated to access. You have to kill all 3 of the new monsters - Rot crawlers, Rot brawlers, and Rot prowlers - and receive each of their eyeballs to combine into the key to access the new boss, the Night-gazer Khighorahk. Once obtained, you can access the boss freely at any time. All these monsters are very easy to kill however, as long as you pray melee.

Upon clicking the gate you'll see that very much like Xamphur, this new boss has invocations! You can utilize these invocations to make the fight harder but in turn get more loot - in fact, with a raid level of 100 you'll get one additional roll at its drop table!

Unique rewards include:

Rot weaponry - upgrades to existing mid-tier weapons by increasing its accuracy.

Abyssal rotwhip - An upgrade to the abyssal whip, it gains a slight boost to strength but a massive boost to slash accuracy. Obtained as a recipe from the Night-gazer.

[Image: 1djgDEs.png]

Master rotwand - An upgrade to the master wand, it gains a massive boost to magic accuracy and magic defence. Obtained as a recipe from the Night-gazer.

Karil's rotbow - An upgrade to Karil's crossbow, it gains a massive boost to ranged accuracy. Obtained as a recipe from the Night-gazer.

[Image: I1yZl8n.png]

Trident of rotseas - An upgrade to the Trident of the seas, it gains a massive boost to magic accuracy. Obtained by completing the Night-gazer Khighorahk collection log.

[Image: Y2iiZaA.png]

Crippling rot (perk) - A perk that provides a 5% chance per hit to drain the NPC target's combat stats (attack, strength, defence, ranged, and magic) by 5%, stacking up to 4 times. Obtained by Night-gazer Khighorahk at a loot tier of high.

Baby prowler - A new pet from the Night-gazer boss. The pet increases damage and accuracy by 10% per pet level against rot-based monsters.

[Image: G62gRBK.png]

Rot essence - A new stackable material that can be used with a Super combat potion(3) to make an Extreme combat potion - a new potion that provides stronger-than-overload stats but don't provide the refreshing effect. This requires 90 Herblore to make! Obtained as a drop from the Night-gazer or the regular rot NPCs.

QoL Changes

The toolbelt has been expanded to include a golden bow string and glassblowing pipe slot!

[Image: CNmpZ6U.png]

The pest control shop has been expanded slightly, adding deathtouched darts for 100 points and gilded void patches for 1500 points.

[Image: LsIltRh.png]

The vote shop has been slightly changed to add enchantment stones for 75 vote tickets, ecumenical keys for 10 vote tickets, and uncut onyxes for 25 vote tickets.

Ultimate ironmen will now no longer keep untradeables automatically in their inventory upon death - they will go to the death storage as normal.

Fixed a bug with the examine info of the ring of resources.

  Remington's Relic Rundown

Greetings Etherealians, today I'm going to break down the various relics to help you decide what will suite your needs.


SPP = Stat Per Point, exclusively a metric to determine your damage and/or accuracy increase per point. This is not necessarily a metric to determine what is best, aside from purely how "cost effective" a Relic is. Also does not account for damage reductions as 99% of the time in Runescape DPS is the name of the game, tankiness is a very niche requirement.
PM = Perk Metric, a completely subjective 1-10 scoring on how good its perk effect is. If there is no effect aside from modifying the Relic's stats, it is given a zero.

  Relics Guide
Posted by: Remington - 08-30-2023, 10:43 PM - Forum: Guides - No Replies

Greetings Etherealians, today we're going to be covering some of the basics and some ins and outs of Ethereal's Relic system.



To begin, you'll want to find "Two-pints" at home. You'll find her swaying back and forth right next to the training dummy and Occult Altar.

[Image: xy4DrPp.png]

The relics interface is pretty simple but can feel intimidating at first if you're not sure what's going on.

[Image: odi0Mw5.png]

To start off, we have 7 empty slots we can fill with relics. To choose relics to add, we must use our Achievement Points obtained from completing various tasks around the world of Ethereal.

[Image: pZPZRzN.png]

Relics have varying costs, depending on what you're trying to do, picking more cheap relics may be more worthwhile than choosing a few expensive ones.

You, probably Wrote:But Remington, I don't want to waste my points on something I don't need later!

Well calm the hell down, I'm getting to it. Relics reset EVERY 24 HOURS. Once you activate your relic set, they will be active for 24 hours. After 24 hours, your relics will be de-activated and you must return to activate it again. While your relic set is ACTIVE, you are unable to change out your relics. Once your relic set is NOT ACTIVE, you can change out your relics as you see fit. You can have either a total of 7 relics active, or as many as you can afford.

You should activate as many relics in the respective sections as possible.

You again, probably Wrote:But Remington I'm only going to be mining at MLM, why would I activate the Arsonist perk also?

Stop interrupting me. We're going to cover the wonderful world of [Image: zbqDlFz.png].
If you click on a perk and scroll down, you might notice there's a MAIN EFFECT as well as the SET EFFECT. You'll see the "category" that the Relic's set effect covers.

[Image: ekwM9Qp.png]

As you can see, the more perks you have that cover a specific set effect, the more rewards you'll earn. So even if you're only using the Arsonist Relic to double your XP/h in Firemaking, if you can afford to equip all 7 skilling specialist relics, you'll be earning an extra 25% xp ontop of that!

You still, probably Wrote:Okay but I'm confused, I click on them and they aren't working.

Well you gotta actually add that relic to be equipped!

[Image: zrTgK12.png]

Just hit add to relics and it'll be equipped!

You still, probably Wrote:I still don't think it's working

Either you don't have enough achievement points to add the relic, or you have to activate the relic set dude! After you have all the relics you want activated, click ACTIVATE. You'll get a popup making sure you're positive you're ready, it's a very common action that someone will click "ACTIVATE" to add a relic to their equipment and not have added all the relics they want.

[Image: cEdnfeQ.png]

Now, please for the love of christ, when you get to the confirmation screen, if you're ready ONLY CLICK YES. Do not tell it to never ask you again so you don't screw it up and lock yourself into the wrong relic set in the future. Unless you're willing to throw away the 5M on a reset. If you're not ready then just click no or walk away to close the dialogue box.
