12/25/2023: Winter event 2023, drop rate adjustments, more!
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!

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!

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!

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

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!

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.

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.

Candy cane tokens can also be used to purchase items in the new event shop!

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!

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.
