Post 01-Nov-2011 - Dominion Tower
Quote:
The Dominion Tower allows accomplished combatants the chance to revisit some of the best boss fights in RuneScape in an awe-inspiring new environment, with challenging handicaps, all-new scenarios and some great rewards:

- Climber mode allows you to ascend through the levels of the tower, facing a randomly chosen boss scenario on each floor. After each victory, an effect will be applied and will persist through all subsequent fights in that attempt. While a few of these will be beneficial, most of them will be handicaps. You’ll be able to replenish food and change equipment between fights, so how high will hubris take you?

- Endurance mode restricts your access to the bank after each fight, so whatever you take in needs to last. This mode is a true test of tenacity.

- Special mode presents a range of challenging, treacherous and, often, weird encounters with which to test your skill and ingenuity. Fancy fighting Count Draynor, Elvarg, and their miscreant buddies with nothing but your fists and a bunch of explosives? How about 15 Evil Chickens? Think you can beat down Nomad twice in a row? We’d love to see you try!

- Freestyle mode lets you fight on your own terms. There are no rewards for using this mode, but it’s a great way to cut your teeth for the big leagues, or just show off fighting a boss under your own crazily difficult rules.

- Spectator mode allows you to view the fights of another player whom you’ve tagged with your dominion talisman. Cheer on your friends, celebrate their victories and wince sympathetically as they’re pummelled into the ground.

Rewards include: weapons and explosives to be used in the tower; a dominion marker to show off your accomplishments and to give you a boost when fighting other bosses; combat XP; a fierce dreadnip companion, and all-new melee, ranged and magic gloves to be used outside the tower. These degradable gloves are some of the most powerful you can get your hands on (or in) and look brilliant.

Most of all, have fun...and fight to win!

How to start Dominion Tower:

From Shantay Pass, cross the northernmost bridge to the east bank of the River Elid. The entrance is just to the north. Once you’ve travelled there, speak to the face of the tower for a medallion that’ll teleport you back.

Requirements:

- Level 110 Combat

- At least 20 of the following quests. The more of these you have completed, the more bosses will be available to fight in the tower:

A Void Dance Love Story
Between a Rock... Missing My Mummy
Blood Runs Deep Monkey Madness
The Chosen Commander Mountain Daughter
Contact! My Arm's Big Adventure
The Curse of Arrav Nomad's Requiem
Demon Slayer Recipe For Disaster
Desert Treasure Shadow of the Storm
Dealing with Scabaras Spirits of the Elid
Dragon Slayer The Great Brain Robbery
Dream Mentor The Temple at Senntisten
The Family Crest Toktz-Ket-Dill
Fight Arena Troll Romance
The Fremennik Trials Troll Stronghold
Haunted Mine Vampyre Slayer
The Holy Grail The Void Stares Back
Horror from the Deep Wanted!
Legends' Quest While Guthix Sleeps
Lost City

In Other News...

- There’s still a week left to obtain your Halloween items if you’ve yet to attend Deathcon II!

- Clan Citadel battlefields now have new rune and arrow spawn points.

- A huge thanks for all of your feedback on Dominion Tower at Runefest! There were some great suggestions, and we'll be working to implement the best of these over the coming weeks and months. Be sure to look out for the new, competition-winning boss too!

Some notes:
-You CANNOT use your own balmung or silver/darklight or korasi.
-The crossbow is very common, degrades very fast, and DOES NOT consume bolts. I have no idea what it's range strength is.
-On Endurance, you cannot get class A bosses: Nomad, Do no evil, zeneviva, decaying avatar, nomad, and dagganoth mother 2.

You can get dag mother 1 (the really easy Horror From the Deep boss) in endurance. You cannot get mother 2 (the somewhat harder Blood Runs Deep boss).

Nobody can seem to get nomad, so I can't get the melee gloves for now. The gloves come in black, white, yellow, and red, and you can get 1 pair of gloves (exclusively) per 5 floors you complete after getting 500 boss kills. So, it actually took 510 kills to get these 2 pairs. I haven't tested the durability, but the gloves are relatively easy to obtain (3-5 mins per pair after initial cost). Note the gloves aren't bugged; that's my char model.

I also have 6 journal pages, which isn't even half. It seems to be around a 1/16 chance per time you open the chest, so in theory, it is best to do 1-2 floors, open chest, and repeat. I don't know if Nomad is restricted to certain climber levels, so I was going from anywhere between 6 and 12, depending on my handicaps, before resetting.

Dreadnips are kinda neat. They aren't quite a familiar but act like a very short-lasting familiar. They poison for 110 damage, deal melee damage for up to a little over 300, and can bind an enemy. They work in single combat, but it is very buggy, and they seem to take the monster's aggressiveness away. This could be useful.

The ascendancy mines are interesting also. You can lay up to 2 per minute and deal ~1/5 of a monster's hp in damage. It doesn't work on bosses, but the notable feature about these is that they do not cause a monster to become aggressive on you. Again, could be useful, but I can't think of much right now.

I had a similar problem. I got stuck in the Dominion Tower when I logged out in the middle of an Endurance trial. After that, I could not log in past the lobby.

I could log in on my F2P noob fishing account from the same computer.

I logged in on one of my son's computers, and was able to access beyond the lobby. So I got out of the Dominion Tower and banked my gear at Mobilizing Armies bank. After that, I had no more issues with banking.

I'd strongly suggest to anyone that's having issues logging in past the lobby to try and gain access to the same account from another computer and see if that helps.

Good Luck!

Yeah. They receive a massive boost when used unarmed.

I'm thinking these are basically the D Warhammer. Definitely the best 1H Crush weapon.

Brb alching my rapier...

But holy wtfff. Unarmed is... longsword speed? Because I'm looking forward to PK'ing with my fist... LOL.

Is the animation the same? (otherwise it'd be pretty lame lol)

Boost for strength bonus only, or does it include attack bonus?

Unless they changed unarmed or the Goliath gloves alter it, unarmed is speed 6 (rapier, whip, scimitar).
