5th of May: Feature revision and changes, Client efficiency overhaul and Development blog
Illerai is a unique 317 server loading OSRS data that strives to build a new world with new lore to uncover and tasteful custom content to engage in.
With entirely new quests to set out on, never-before-seen bosses to battle, new rewards to reap from them, and new maps to explore, we seek to double down on the vision of Old School RuneScape; to expand upon the game that we came to love back in the day without squandering everything that makes it what it is.
Illerai's standards are upheld in no small part by the awesome work of modelers such as Ziva, lumplum, Draxaca and Maximax.
What we want to achieve with Illerai is to create a gameplay experience of its own right. We want you to marvel at the game you have known for so long in a way you probably haven't for a long time. To this end, our signature addition to the combat system was born, a new skilling-focused game mode was implemented, and a few new bosses came to be.
Since the original release of the server, the aforementioned combat mechanic has been entirely revamped, Skiller Mode was rebalanced, more boss additions have been made, more skilling additions have been planned, the lore has been rethought and quests have been written.
Here at Illerai, our utmost pride is the original content that gives the server its personality. New additions have been made to various aspects to the game, and each of them has been carefully thought out from the drawing board stages to ensure that they fit within our vision, that they're fun, and that they organically assimilate into the game we all know and love.
The Divine Keystones
Illerai's signature addition to the combat system allows you enhance your combat performance in various ways by receiving a god's blessings and investing points into the individual attributes offered by your received blessings. These points will become obtainable from many different sources, encouraging a diversified gamestyle that rewards engagement with the many different aspects of the game in order to unlock our new system's full potential.
Our server counts with a few new bosses that test the waters of what RSPS can achieve in that front. This gives players new major goals to work towards with the new tools they can acquire and provide fresh, tough, and satisfying challenges.
Custom Items & New Skill!
New additions have been made to the game, but not left and right. Contrary to what certain other servers would have you believe, there is such a thing as adding new items within reason, and our reasons typically involve the original content you're reading about. After all, you can't have new PvM challenges or custom quests without offering new rewards to go with them, and lucky for us we count with just that.
Recoloring items doesn't have to make them look completely awful, the old can be built upon if done with care and the new can blend in as well.
If you like what you're seeing and intend on playing (or just wish us the best regardless!), you should definitely make some room in your signature for our support banner!
