Chambers of Xeric - Development Blog

Hey, you may recall us talking about the Chambers of Xeric in previous emails. We discussed how it was our next major content addition. Since then we've managed to get some incredible progress and wanted to share that with you. It is a very exciting time for Ely. We are coming close to 4 years online and have consistently grown our community and established a dominant position in RSPS as the #1 718. With that said, let's dive into this.

As we began our development of CoX on Ely we looked at other servers and how they did it. We looked at other 718's, even OSRS servers and anyone who had CoX in general. We quickly realized 90-95% of the servers we looked at had it wrong right from the start. There was no real, true OSRS room generation. Without that you can't utilize the Runelite CoX plugin's, etc. We spent a lot of time right at the start getting room generation true to OSRS. We quickly learned the only other 718 that claimed to have CoX had the entire thing completely wrong. Skipped tons of content, wasn't accurate to OSRS - it was essentially custom raids with the same assets as OSRS. We set out to have accurate and true CoX just as it is in OSRS. We now realize we will be the first 718 RSPS to ever have full, real Chamers of Xeric & we are really excited for that.

This project is a huge project, especially on a 718/Ely. However we've made tremendous progress and I feel we've done enough to show you some teaser images of our progress so far..







There is so much more to show and we hope to share them with you soon. We left off at the entrance to Great Olm - and we'll show you more soon. In the mean time we hope you are excited to see this incredible piece of content finally arrive on Ely, and finally in it's true form unlike many RSPS & the first 718 to ever do it. Resource rooms, Storage & everything else is functional, storage is upgradable, etc. We are currently going through every NPC & Boss and applying all the correct combat mechanics and such to them.

As we progress, we will need more help from you or anyone with knowledge of Chambers of Xeric to help us test & refine the content. If you are willing & familiar with CoX we ask you to reach out to us and offer your hand in testing. We will likely be rewarding people who are knowledgeable and able to help us test and refine this before release with store credit. Let us know!

Thank you for being a part of this wonderful community & we hope to see you in-game!
