Update v1.0.5 - (5th July 2022)

Hello everyone!

With 100% of development is focused on the upcoming Expansion 1, I come bringing a small surprise update for everyone to enjoy while you wait.

As a thank you for the support so far on the Cool Rock (pet).svg Cool Rock Plushie sales I have decided to release a new temporary custom Game Mode for you all to enjoy.

We’re currently at 80% of our funding goal for the Cool Rock (pet).svg Cool Rock Plushies with only under one week to go to reach our sales target! If you would like to help us reach that 100% target, you can do so here.

Nonetheless, even if we don’t reach that target, I believe everyone deserves something as a thank you from us to show our appreciation to the community that continues to support us through and through.

New Temporary Custom Game Mode

Say hello to Internal Suffering Speedrun.svg Internal Suffering Speedrun Mode!

Available until: August 31 23:59:59 GMT

We took the concept of the previous Hardcore Adventure Speedrun.svg Hardcore Adventure Speedrun Mode and turned it up to 11. The idea here is to bring a fresh take on how the game is played, and really make you think about your next actions moving forward.

This Game Mode will test your strategic decision making, forcing you to slowly disable the further you progress. You will need to make the call as to what skills you can do without, and what will help you defeat the final boss.

And yes, this is super fast again.

So, what exactly does this game mode entail? Read carefully as there are quite a few important mechanics to keep in mind.

  • As usual, the goal is to defeat the final boss as fast as you can.
  • This is a safe game mode. No character loss on death.
  • Uses the Hardcore.svg Hardcore Combat Triangle.
  • However, the combat triangle has been reversed! This means Attack (skill).svg Melee now beats Magic (skill).svg Magic, Ranged (skill).svg Ranged beats Attack (skill).svg Melee, and Magic (skill).svg Magic beats Ranged (skill).svg Ranged. Check the numbers inside the small triangle tooltip next to your Max Hit and Damage Reduction numbers to see the exact numbers.
  • All skills except Firemaking (skill).svg Firemaking and Farming (skill).svg Farming are available to you at the start.
  • Your skill level is capped at level 10. This cap can be increased at any time by permanently disabling any non-combat skill. This can be done from the new menu item in the sidebar.
  • For each skill you disable, not including Firemaking (skill).svg Firemaking or Farming (skill).svg Farming, the skill level cap will increase by 10. This means you need to disable 10 non-combat skills to be able to reach level 99.
  • You can continue training skills when you reach the level cap, you will just earn no further skill XP.
  • Accessing the final boss requires level 99 in all Combat.svg Combat skills to access.

On top of the above unique mechanics, we have made similar adjustments to the intervals as the previous custom game mode:

  • -80% Attack intervals for you and the enemies.
  • -80% Skill intervals (This now also reduces Thieving (skill).svg Thieving stun intervals).
  • +800% Global Mastery.svg Mastery XP.
  • -2s Monster respawn timer.

You will also notice this game mode uses larger numbers. This is purely visual and provides no real benefit to the game. It is simply done to make the game mode look a bit different.

Other Changes

Firstly, to accommodate for the new game modeI have added another save slot for everyone to use and enjoy!

A month or so ago I posted a thread to Reddit asking the community for feedback on the UI of the game, and requested information on everyone’s biggest UI pet-peeve.

You can view this thread here.

I plan to resolve as many of these UI issues as possible, especially for the release of the expansion.

For now, I took the top comment and adjusted the UI for Firemaking (skill).svg Firemaking, Fishing (skill).svg Fishing and Mining (skill).svg Mining to now display XP, Mastery.svg Mastery XP, and mastery pool XP you can gain per action (Woodcutting (skill).svg Woodcutting already shows this during the action).

Farming (skill).svg Farming and Summoning (skill).svg Summoning UI adjustments to show extra information will be coming at a later date! Alongside resolutions for other UI pet-peeves mentioned.

In the future, I plan to ask more questions similar to this so I can gauge an understanding of what everyone is thinking, and what I can do to address the potential concerns or suggestions mentioned.

It’s something I’ve valued since I began development on Melvor Idle, and I want to continue this level of communication moving forward!

Another Expansion 1 Live Stream

In case you missed the news, we have another live stream happening to discuss expansion 1 in more detail. There’s also a live Q&A happening on this stream, so be sure to tune in to get an inside into all things Melvor Idle!

Live Stream Details


Progress on Expansion 1 is looking fantastic. We’re excited to share more information with you all and take a closer look at what can be expected from the update!

I hope you all enjoy the new custom gamemode. Be sure to check out the live stream as there will be some information you won’t want to miss!

Update v1.0.4 - (25th May 2022)

This update introduces a new Save Slot UI to hopefully assist current and future players with their understanding of how the save system in Melvor works.

Our full focus at this stage is on Expansion 1, and progress is looking great! We will have a lot more news to share soon as we delve closer to the release.

New Save Slot UI

There are no functional changes to how the system works, this is just a visual update to provide clarity around the system that is currently present in the game.

You can read about the new Save Slot UI in detail here.

Note: Your characters are already stored inside a Save Slot (The little number to the left of the save). This is the Save Slot the game will use for this update.

Here’s a breakdown of the changes:

  • The game will now display all Save Slots available to you, instead of hiding empty ones.
  • Slightly adjusted the UI of Save Slots to provide clarity around what slot your save is in.
  • The Settings button has moved to a dropdown menu in the top right corner of each Save Slot.
  • An empty save slot will now warn you if an existing Cloud save has been detected in that slot.
  • When attempting to load or import a save, the game will now display exact details of what save will be overwritten in the popup.
  • You can now delete Cloud Saves from the Settings menu dropdown.
  • Cloud saves can now be refreshed inside the game by using the new Refresh icon sitting next to the “Show Cloud/Local Saves” button.
  • If a save produces an error, it will no longer stop the entire game from loading. Instead it will adjust the UI of the save slot to show the save is corrupted. This will help us debug issues you may run into.
  • Downloading a save now includes the Date & Time of the download in the filename.

Update on adding more Save Slots

I can confirm that new Save Slots are on the way for those that have been asking.

Firstly, I want to ensure this new UI is up to par and reduces the issues that have been faced significantly before I go ahead and add more Slots.

If this new UI indeed succeeds in reducing the issues, more save slots (and temporary gamemodes) won’t be far away at all!

Discord RPC

This update adds Discord RPC for Windows clients only.

A small Steam client update was released not too long ago is required for Discord RPC to function. You do not need to update the client to access the general game.

This RPC will display information about:

  • Your current gamemode and total level.
  • What non-combat skill you are training, the action you are performing and the level of that skill.
  • What Enemy you are fighting, and the area/dungeon you are active in.

Changed Features

  • Locked Summoning Synergies in the search UI now displays the Marks and Levels required to unlock that Synergy. This is also colour coded: Green = requirement met, Orange = Requirement not met. If you have not found the first Mark yet, the name will display as “???”.
  • When clicking into the Summoning Synergy search from the minibar, it will default to only showing Synergies for that respective Skill.
  • You can now double click Bones to quickly bury them in the Bank. Only works if the item is not locked.
  • You can now double click Chests to quickly open them in the Bank.
  • You can now click the Slayer (skill).svg Slayer Task image to see detailed stats, special attacks and passive of that enemy.
  • Perfect Fish can now be used to create Pig (item).svg Pig and Wolf (item).svg Wolf Summoning Tablets.
  • You can now downgrade Perfect Fish into normal Fish at a 1:1 ratio. This is just a temporary addition as I will soon be implementing a feature that allows Agility (skill).svg Agility obstacles that cost normal Fish to accept Perfect Fish as well.
  • Slightly updated the UI for buttons in Thieving (skill).svg Thieving and Artisan skills.
  • [Mobile only] When selecting a recipe category or item in an Artisan skill, the UI will now automatically scroll to the respective area.


  • The issue that causes offline progress to get stuck (and produce a timestamp error) will no longer cause the game to become unplayable without a save fix. This doesn’t fix the bug itself (which we are still looking into). Please report offline progress issues if you do run into them after this update.
  • Fixed an issue that caused an error during a cloud save (Cloud save still worked as intended even with this error).
  • Fixed Pet Log completion number not updating automatically.
  • Fixed issue where connecting your Mobile Device for push notifications would get stuck on the loading spinner.
  • When wearing the Bone Necklace (item).svg Bone Necklace, the first item in the Loot container will no longer hold its place.
  • Quick Buy modal no longer appears under the Cooking (skill).svg Cooking recipe selection modal.
  • During Sell/Move Item mode in the Bank, the borders of selected items will no longer be removed when moving items to new tabs or positions.
  • Modifiers that affect Enemies now function correctly in the Golbin Raid.
  • Levelling up the Mastery of a Rune in Runecrafting now dynamically updates the UI to show changes.
  • Adjusted the text on the “Render Combat Progress” to now mention it disables Non-combat progress bars as well.
  • Fixed incorrect styling to popup buttons in some circumstances.
  • You can no longer sell the Magic Wand (Basic) (item).svg Basic Magic Wand during the Tutorial (which bricks tutorial progress).
  • Fixed undefined translation in Thieving (skill).svg Thieving Game Guide.
  • New Adventure.png Adventure Mode characters now correctly start with 100% Hitpoints (skill).svg HP, instead of only 10%.
  • Fixed issue that breaks the save settings function due to there being an apostrophe present in the character name.
  • Astrology Mastery token is now named correctly, and now has its description.
  • Fixed Golbin Raid shop purchases disappearing after 1 purchase.
  • Fixed visual issues that cause dropdowns to extend above available screen space.
  • Dragonfire Shield (item).svg Dragonfire Shield now has its original description restored.
  • Quick Equip menu now closes when closing the Skilling Minibar on mobile.
  • Corrupted saves no longer break the game, and instead are isolated to their save slot only.
  • Fixed incorrect Milestone for Normal Shortbow (item).svg Normal Shortbows.
  • The Bank Sorting method now correctly displays your current sorting method on load.
  • Fixed typos in some special attacks.
  • Ragnar Godsword (item).svg Ragnar Godsword and Terran Godsword (item).svg Terran Godsword now display their correct special attack description.
  • Adjusted the wording on the 50% Firemaking (skill).svg Firemaking Mastery checkpoint to correctly reflect the actual mechanic.
  • Adjusted item description loading for Artisan skills that should hopefully reduce some CPU usage (It used to reload every action, now it only loads once).
  • Corrected grammar for Ancient Magic locked tooltip.
  • Fixed incorrect description of the Ranged (skill).svg Ranged Game Guide.
  • The Venom special attack can now miss.
  • Gems now appear correctly in the bank when searching “Gem” or “Gems”.

Update v1.0.3 - (28th February 2022)

This update brings a bunch of much requested quality of life updates, as well as finalizing the transition to the new tick-based system for Skills.

The transition to a tick-based was done over 6 months, and involved rewriting every single Skill from the ground up. Now that it has been completed, this will allow for more efficient updates including efficient implementation of new content.

A note on upcoming new content

Although these latest updates have not introduced anything new for you to try, we can confirm that we have indeed been working on new content behind the scenes at the same time.

There is a massive pipeline of new content on the way, including the much anticipated Expansion 1. This expansion aims to roughly double the amount of content you see in the game, and it has been in planning for quite some time.

Now that the transition to the tick-based system is complete, we can now work efficiently towards Expansion 1 as well as everything in between. Let’s see what’s new inside the February 2022 update.

New Features

Customisable Minibar

  • There is a new “Quick-Equip Menu” for the Minibar (the menu in the bottom right of Skills). This new menu allows you to quickly equip items for the respective Skill. The GEAR icon represents the quick equip.
  • You can customize what items display in this menu for each Skill. This can be done by selecting any equipable item within the Bank, navigating to the Gear icon, and then enabling/disabling this item for each Skill.
  • The order of these items can be adjusted to your liking by dragging and dropping them from within the Quick-Equip Menu.
  • Existing default items from before this update are enabled by default inside this new menu.

Updated Combat Minibar

  • The Combat Minibar that displays during Combat has some new features and functionality.
  • The Enemy HP & Attack Bar has been added above your own, so you can see the progress of the fight more clearly.
  • Your own attack bar has been added below your HP bar.
  • You can now change your Equipment Set from the minibar.
  • New Settings have been added to the Settings Page to enable or disable the visibility of Enemy HP/Attack Bar & Equipment Set Selection.

Click & Hold to Eat

  • Doing this will not consume more Food than is required.
  • The button will turn green to confirm you are “spam eating”.
  • This works on Mobile versions as well.

This kind of functionality is great if you feel like attempting content before you are prepared enough to idle it.

Other New Additions

  • You can now toggle the visibility of Fishing (skill).svg Fishing & Thieving (skill).svg Thieving Areas by clicking/tapping the header area where the new “Eyecon” is. This visibility setting is saved for that character.
  • You are now able to “Destroy Loot” by selecting the corresponding button located on the bottom of the Loot Container. This will destroy the Loot if for some reason you do not wish to actually Loot it.

Changed Features

  • The UI for the Skills & Mastery.svg Mastery section of the Completion Log has been updated to be much less stressful on the eyes, using distinguished colours to separate each Skill.
  • You can now see the Special Attack & relevant descriptions of Items within the “View Item Stats” & “Upgrade Item” popups. Now you will know exactly what the item does that you are trying to Craft or Upgrade into.
  • Removed the “Pause Skills when Minimized” setting from Mobile. This setting now defaults to “enabled” as there is no reason for this to be turned off on Mobile.
  • Farming (skill).svg Farming is now unlocked on the Demo Version on Mobile.

Tick-Based Skills

These Skills have now transitioned to the new tick-based system:

This marks the end of the transition to tick-based for Skills, and will now allow us to develop a lot more efficiently in general for the game.


  • We have been working to address issues with Offline Progress on Mobile. With the transition to tick-based and most affected Skills being rewritten, we hope to have squashed this bug. However, if you experience it again please let us know so we can look into it further.

Public Beta v1.0 - (10th November 2021)


Welcome to the absolutely massive Public Beta 1.0 update for Melvor Idle!

This update introduces most of the promised Major Features from the roadmap, plus a lot of other goodies to go with it.

The Public Beta is a symbol of an almost complete game. This is an achievement I never thought I would ever reach when I started this journey in September 2019.

To be able to finally declare the game is finished is an unbelievable feeling. But we aren’t there just yet. Full Release is on November 18, and this Public Beta is here to give you the content early, and also spend time focusing on bug fixes from here on until the launch.

Important: This update is the full 1.0. When the game launches on November 18, you will not see any new inclusions other than localisation.

The next 8 days for me are dedicated to fixing as many reported bugs as possible, so I can ensure the full launch on November 18 is as smooth as possible.

This changelog is MASSIVE, so please take the time to read everything that changed, and everything that was added. There’s some amazing stuff in here and I don’t want you to miss it.

Endgame Content Pt. 3


The time has finally come to introduce the last piece of the Combat.svg Combat puzzle.

Endgame Content Pt.3 introduces the final boss for Melvor Idle, as well as a lot of new Monsters, Items and balance changes across Combat.svg Combat.

It has been a very long time coming, and the inclusion this brings is one of the largest additions to the game we have ever done. I’ll do my best to break down exactly what we added, and what has changed.

Impending Darkness Event

The Final Boss is hidden deep inside an “Impending Darkness Event (dungeon).svg Event”. Your task is to slay various Monsters who have succumbed to the final boss’ mysterious mist and eventually defeat him when the chance arises.

Event Mechanics

The event requires Level 99 in all Skills, and access to all Slayer (skill).svg Slayer areas.

Upon beginning the Event, all Combat content will be locked and will remain locked until the Event is either finished, ended, or you die.

Upon starting the Event, you will be greeted with a popup asking you to select a random modifier combination from a selection of 3. The modifiers you select will apply to every single Monster you face during the event.

After this, your task is to trawl through the hardest Slayer Areas in the game, defeating a random number of Monsters (5-8) within that area until it has been cleared. The final monster you face within the respective areas will be a “Boss” version of one of the Monsters.

Upon clearing all of the Slayer Areas, the Final Boss will appear to try and stop you in your tracks. You must defeat him to continue to the next part of the event.

Event Cycles

The Event occurs for a total of 5 cycles. One cycle is completed after defeating the Final Boss, in which you will then begin the next cycle, repeating the above Mechanics.

The completion of a cycle will provide you with a set reward for your efforts. This reward is always the same, depending on what cycle you just completed.

When beginning a new cycle, you will be asked to select another modifier combination. This Combination you select is then added to all previous Modifiers you selected. This means by cycle 5, you will have 5 different Modifier combinations active at the same time, so choose wisely.

The very last Monster you face at the end of Cycle 5 is the true Final Boss. Good luck, you will need it.

Important Information

There’s some very important information you need to know about the event, so please read this as it will clear a lot of confusion about how the Event works:

  • The Event takes roughly 2 hours to complete, assuming you don’t die and are well prepared.
  • You only need to complete the event once for all possible rewards.
  • All Combat content is locked during the event. You cannot do any Combat outside of what the Event provides.
  • Yes, you are able to train Non-Combat Skills during the event (Just not at the same time of course).
  • Your event progress will be saved, and the only way to reset the event is to either manually end it with the provided button, or by dying. Closing the game or training a Non-Combat Skill will not reset the event.
  • Running in Combat during the event will not reset the event. If something is too hard, you may Run from Combat and attempt it again.
  • This is a safe Event for Hardcore Characters. Dying in here will not result in the loss of your character.

New Skill: Astrology


Astrology (skill).svg Astrology is the final Skill to be added to Melvor Idle for v1.0.

Now, ignore all the modern day Horoscope nonsense and let me take you back to medieval times where Melvor Idle is set.

Astrology is all about discovery of the Stars, or “constellations” as they are referred to in Melvor Idle. Utilising your knowledge of these constellations to empower your character with bonuses in almost every Skill in the game.

The idea behind Astrology was to go back to the complete basics of Melvor Idle and implement a Skill that provides nothing but bonuses to you. There are no external GP Costs, Item Costs, Level requirements or anything within this Skill. It is something that can be solely trained alone without the help of another external Skill.

Everything you need to level up and unlock new bonuses comes from Astrology itself.

At heart Astrology is a “gathering” Skill. A Skill that can be trained all the way until Level 99 without requiring anything else. It’s a breath of fresh air from the complexity the game has to offer with the recent Skills added to the game.


There are 11 unique constellations for you to study, each assigned two different Skills that can be boosted.

You are able to study these constellations to earn Skill XP, unlocking their benefits as you continue to progress. Studying any constellation will provide a chance for two new resources to be acquired automatically - Stardust (item).png Stardust and Golden Stardust (item).png Golden Stardust.

Within each constellation you will find 6 different Stars that each grants a random modifier. The modifier that is applied to these stars can be rolled by you at a cost of Stardust (item).png Stardust or Golden Stardust (item).png Golden Stardust, and are chosen from a predetermined list of modifiers that are visible within the constellations themselves.

The Modifiers you roll are active at all times, and will remain active until you decide to reroll it for a new one.

Standard and Unique Modifiers

The modifiers you are able to roll are separated into two distinct categories - Standard Modifiers and Unique Modifiers.

Standard Modifiers are largely the same within all constellations, depending on whether the Skill they benefit is Combat.svg Combat related or not. Each constellation houses 3 stars that can contain one Standard Modifier each. These are rerolled at the cost of Stardust (item).png Stardust.

Unique Modifiers provide bonuses unique to that constellation only, and are generally great modifiers to have active throughout the game. Each constellation houses 3 stars that can contain one Unique Modifier each. These are enrolled at the cost of Golden Stardust (item).png Golden Stardust. But be careful, Golden Stardust (item).png Golden Stardust is quite rare to come by.


Although Astrology is simple in terms of its mechanics and purpose in the game, it has been designed with future expansion in mind. This skill opens up a lot of different avenues for the game, and will eventually provide a lot of unique mechanics to the game which will be quite noticeable in the Level 120 Content Expansion.

Right now, the Skill is all about giving you nothing but bonuses. In the future, it will be the doorway to new mechanics and pathways when leveling up a character.

Astrology will also help you with the challenges to come in Endgame Content Pt.3 and beyond.

4th Equipment Set

With the introduction of Astrology being the final Skill added to the game, it’s time to finally give you one of the most requested additions.

You are now able to purchase a 4th Extra Equipment Set (upgrade).svg Extra Equipment Set from the Shop. It requires Astrology Level 99 and Coins.svg 100,000,000 to unlock. This will be fantastic for a Skilling setup.

New Potion

We have added a Secret Stardust Potion I (item).png Secret Stardust Potion to Herblore (skill).svg Herblore which will greatly assist in your Astrology (skill).svg Astrology training, even well beyond Level 99.

Statistics 2.0

It’s been a long time coming, but I can finally introduce you to the new Statistics 2.0 that has been included in this update.

The aim for this rework wasn’t necessarily to provide you with every single stat imaginable, but it was more to rework the whole system behind the scenes that will allow for very easy implementation of new stats in the future.

With this rework, many stats have either been reset or are sitting at 0. This is due to it not being possible to track statistics that were never tracked in the first place.

Of course, we have added more stats for more Skills alongside this.

We have added statistics for the following:

All non-Combat skills now have these additional stats:

  • Total actions performed
  • Time spent in Skill
  • Total items created
  • Total resources used
  • Total resources preserved

Some new notable Stat additions:

  • Account Age (Not retroactive)
  • Aorpheat's Signet Ring (item).svg Signet Ring Halves Missed

You will continue to see many new Statistics over coming updates and Expansions.

Updated Completion Log

The Completion Log has finally received its well overdue facelift!

This update brings in new UI enhancements, and some lovely celebration animations so you can party with yourself for achieving a massive Milestone in a single player game.

New Completion Log UI

The Completion Log has moved to its own page, where you can select the Completion Category you wish to view, as well as see a total completion progress bar at the top!

Updated Item Log

  • The Item Log now as some minor UI changes to make it look nicer.
  • You can now search for items within the Item Log.
  • Hovering/tapping on a hidden item will now tell you the name of the Item that is yet to be discovered.
  • There’s a few new Item Log filtering options - Show All, Show Discovered Items, Show Undiscovered Items.

Updated Monster & Pet Log

  • Minor UI facelift of the Monster & Pet Log, increasing the size of the images.
  • Monster Log is now separated into Normal Monsters and Dungeon Bosses at the bottom.

New Milestone Celebration Animations

Upon reaching a Milestone, you will now be greeted with a lovely fireworks display to congratulate you on your achievement.

Milestones that activate the animation
  • Reaching Level 99 in any Skill
  • Achieving 100% Completion
  • Achieving 100% Mastery
  • Achieving 100% Items
  • Achieving 100% Monsters
  • Achieving 100% Pets

Updated Popup UI for Milestones

Some Milestones have received a new UI to better communicate the achievement you reached:

  • Leveling up any Skill now has a nice popup at the top of the screen.
  • Achieving Level 99 Mastery.svg Mastery for any item will provide a similar popup at the top of the screen.
  • Fireworks :D

Tutorial Island

This is well overdue, but we finally got there in the end!

Tutorial Island has been added to the game which will guide new players through the basic mechanics and Skills that Melvor Idle has to offer.

Upon beginning a new Character, you will drop into Tutorial Island and be required to complete basic tasks. It’s quite similar to how Old School RuneScape does it, and it should provide the player with enough basic knowledge to get going on their adventure.

If you do not want to do the Tutorial, you can skip it with the required button.

I hope the addition of Tutorial Island will assist players with the initial overwhelming feeling you generally receive when first loading up the game. It takes roughly 10-20 minutes to complete.

Tick-Based Skills

We promised a little while ago that eventually all Skills will transition to a Tick-Based system, just like Combat.svg Combat and Thieving (skill).svg Thieving currently are.

The benefits of Tick-Based Skills means you can progress through a Skill at an identical rate online as you can offline. It also means development of skills is a lot easier for us because we do not need to manage two separate code bases for online and offline functionality.

Tick-Based Skills also provide the benefit of Mastery.svg Mastery bonuses applying at the exact time you level up, meaning you do not need to log in to the game to activate Mastery bonuses.

This update transitions two Skills to the new Tick-Based System:

The transition to Tick-Based also means the Controlled Heat Potion I (item).svg Controlled Heat & Perfect Swing Potion I (item).svg Perfect Swing Potions now work offline!

Mining (skill).svg Mining also received a minor QoL update in the process:

  • Mining (skill).svg Mining nodes now passively regenerate 1 HP every 10 seconds.
  • Depleting a node will still act the same as before and restore it to full HP after a set time period.

A lot of reported Mining (skill).svg Mining bugs were also rectified in this transition. We will detail those below in the Bug Fix change list.

Offline Time Cap Increase

Now that the game is finally complete, and we have a total of 23 Skills for you to train, I was now able to look at the whole picture and see what changes would benefit the player the most.

The Offline Time Cap of 12 hours is reasonable, up until a certain point. I solely believe that as more content is added to the game, this time cap should gradually increase alongside it.

The Offline Time Cap has been increased to 18 hours for all players.

Now, this does not mean every content update will come with an increase. It simply means that it is an area I consider upon updating the game. Nothing is always set in stone, and I’m always listening to feedback around to game in areas like this.

New Farming Plant Option (QoL)

The addition of Passive Cooking (skill).svg Cooking and utilisation of multiple Farming (skill).svg Farming ingredients made it clear that Farming (skill).svg Farming needed a slight adjustment to help with your crop management.

This update comes equipped with a new “Plant All Selected” Farming (skill).svg Farming option.

You can now assign any seed to a plot in the respective seed category, and the game will plant that seed in that plot when you press this button.

This means you are now able to grow many different crops at the same time with the click of a single button.

The new planting option is unlocked for everyone, there is no shop upgrade required to activate it.

Looting QoL

This is one of the most discussed and suggested changes Melvor Idle has ever seen. I don’t think there is a day that goes by where a suggestion to do something about the Looting mechanic, especially for late game players.

As the development of the game progressed, and the content you faced became harder, it became clear that the absolute requirement to have the Amulet of Looting (item).svg Amulet of Looting equipped for your grinds was not a good mechanic to have.

In general, it is okay to use it for part of the game, but not for everything you face after acquiring it.

These changes aim to make Looting a bit better for all players, and also open up an Amulet slot for late game players taking on harder content.

  • Running from Combat will now automatically loot everything in the Loot container. No more accidental lost loot.
  • Amulet of Looting (item).svg Loot Container Stacking Shop Upgrade - Unlocks the ability for all items to Stack within the Loot Container.
  • Increased the Loot Container to 100 slots, up from 16. This should allow for a majority of items to stay inside the loot container with the stacking shop upgrade unlocked.

These 3 changes when combined should provide a much better looting experience for all.

New Melvor Idle Logo & Branding

As you have already noticed, Melvor Idle has a brand new logo!

This is something I have always wanted to explore, and now with 1.0 just around the corner, it was the perfect time to get it done.

I am absolutely in love with how the logo turned out, and I believe it really shows the personality Melvor Idle has to offer.

Alongside the new logo, I have many new assets and artwork to use on various platforms to keep everything consistent and in line with the game’s design principles.


Important Note: Localisation will not be activated until 1.0 is officially released on November 18.

Melvor Idle will now be localised in the following 13 different languages:

  • English
  • French
  • Italian
  • German
  • Spanish
  • Portuguese
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Turkish
  • Traditional Chinese
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Korean
  • Japanese

This will hopefully open up the game to many new players around the world, and will allow for more people to enjoy the game in their native language.

Every update, including changelogs and store pages, will be localised in the same 13 languages.

Other Changes

Here is a list of other new things and changes that did not fit in the above categories.


  • Equipment that provides bonuses based on other items being equipped now have colour matching borders around them to indicate that the bonus is active

Changed Features

Bug Fixes

Alpha v0.22 - (29th September 2021)

Thieving Rework

Thieving (skill).svg Thieving has always been one of the most lacklustre Skills in the game. Providing no real benefits to the game apart from a few items, as well as having no purpose late game other than to pickpocket the Bob the Farmer (thieving).svg Farmer was a sure enough factor to rework the Skill.

The aim of this rework is to transition the Skill into an early to mid-game Skill while providing unique bonuses and content that you cannot find anywhere else. We also wanted to ensure Thieving remained viable and somewhat important late-game by the use of consumable items you can only obtain via this Skill.

Due to the nature of this rework, it was not possible to award any Thieving Offline Progress if you were doing so when the update dropped. You will be greeted with some flavour text upon your return.

New NPCs and Unique Drops

We have introduced 15 brand new helpless NPCs for you to pickpocket, many of which are home to unique items that can only be found in Thieving.

NPCs also now reside in different areas or locations (kind of like Fishing (skill).svg Fishing). Alongside the unique drops from the NPC themselves, you are also able to find unique "area" items which only drop from NPCs within the respective location.

Some of the new drops provide bonuses to Skills or Combat, while others are simply worth a good amount of GP when you sell it.

You may even find some exotic crafting materials, which can be used to make special pouches and bags to aid in your adventures even more.

The Art of Stealth

This rework introduces two new mechanics known as Stealth and Perception.

Perception is a measure of how difficult an NPC is to steal from, while Stealth is how good you are at stealing. Your Stealth competes against an NPC's Perception.

  • Your success rate is determined by: [math]100 \times \tfrac{100 + \text{Stealth}}{100 + \text{Perception}}\%[/math]
  • Your chance to double items is increased by: [math]25 \times \tfrac{\text{Stealth}}{\text{Perception}}\%[/math]
  • Your chance to receive an NPC's unique item is: [math]\tfrac{100 + \text{Stealth}}{100 \times \text{Perception}}\%[/math]

Stealth can be increased in a number of ways.

Balance Changes

Thieving (skill).svg Thieving has been completely rebalanced. The old NPCs have had their level requirements and XP amounts readjusted. Combining this with the addition of new NPCs, leveling Thieving should now be much smoother, and make a decent amount of GP along the way.

Unchanged Reduced Increased

Furthermore, anything that used to provide bonuses to Thieving success rate or success rate cap have been changed to provide increases to Stealth or other bonuses.

Interface Overhaul

The interface for Thieving (skill).svg Thieving has been completely redone.

NPCs are now displayed in areas, similar to Fishing (skill).svg Fishing. Information, such as doubling chance and Thieving interval, are now also shown, similar to Smithing (skill).svg Smithing or Fletching (skill).svg Fletching.

A "Show Drops" button has been added. This allows you to see your GP gains, as well as potential loot drops from an NPC. Drops are hidden by the use of a question mark until you find them at least once.

Thieving is Now Tick Based

Thieving (skill).svg Thieving has now been transitioned to be tick-based system, just like Combat.svg Combat. This has resulted in the following benefits:

  • Thieving (skill).svg Thieving now has the same resistance to browser throttling that Combat.svg Combat has
  • Offline and Online Thieving (skill).svg Thieving are now consistent with each other as they use the same codebase
  • Mastery.svg Mastery now levels up offline and provides the benefits immediately, instead of using the fixed Mastery.svg Mastery level you had when you went offline
  • Food is now consumed while Thieving (skill).svg Thieving offline
  • You can now perform offline Thieving (skill).svg Thieving even if your success rate isn't 100%; however, it is now also possible to die

Cooking Rework

The long awaiting Cooking (skill).svg Cooking Rework is here!

The aim of this rework is to provide a large rebalance to the use of Food throughout the game, while also providing more options to the Player in what they wish to produce.

Some much requested Quality of Life features have been added, alongside a new “Passive Cooking” mechanic that should provide an extra pair of hands throughout your Melvor journey.

Offline Progress will be awarded for those who were Cooking Offline when the update dropped. Your Offline Progress will be subject to the changes and new mechanics listed.

Cooking Furnace and Cooking Pot

Alongside the Normal Cooking Fire (upgrade).svg Cooking Fire, we have now introduced the Basic Furnace (upgrade).svg Cooking Furnace and Basic Pot (upgrade).svg Cooking Pot.

These new Cooking Utilities (that's what I call them) unlock a wide range of new unique multi-ingredient products you can cook and use in Combat.svg Combat or Thieving (skill).svg Thieving.

They act the same way as the Normal Cooking Fire (upgrade).svg Cooking Fire does, while also providing their own unique bonuses within Cooking itself.

Each Cooking Utility is home to different types Food for you to Cook that can only be obtained by using the respective Normal Cooking Fire (upgrade).svg Fire, Basic Furnace (upgrade).svg Furnace or Basic Pot (upgrade).svg Pot.

These are required to be purchased from within the Shop prior to being able to use them.

Active Cooking and Passive Cooking

A new mechanic you will notice straight away is the Active Cooking and Passive Cooking buttons implemented into the Cooking UI for each Cooking utility.

Active Cooking

This is your standard way to Cook Food. This will provide you with Skill XP, Mastery XP, Mastery Pool XP and all relevant bonuses relating to the Food you are Cooking.

Only one product can be Actively Cooked at any given time.

Passive Cooking

A brand-new way to Cook Food which will assist with your progression throughout the game.

Passive Cooking is a method of food production that can be done alongside the food you are Actively Cooking, at the same time.

Any Cooking utility that is not being used can perform Passive Cooking as long as you are Actively Cooking something on a different Cooking Utility.

For example: You can be Actively Cooking Fish and can start Passively Cooking Food on the Furnace and Pot at the same time.

Passively Cooked Food is added to something called a “Stockpile”. There is one Stockpile for each Cooking Utility, and this Stockpile can only house one type of Food until it is collected by you. The game will not let you Passively Cook anything if the item sitting in the Stockpile is different from the one your are attempting to produce.

Passive Cooking comes with some very important mechanics that you need to be aware of:

  • No Skill XP, Mastery XP, Mastery Pool XP or Bonuses are provided to Passively Cooked Food. This is solely a Food production mechanic.
  • It takes 5 times as long to Passively Cook a Product than it does to Actively Cook (subject to balance during Test).
  • Recipe costs are the same.
  • Passive Cooks do not count as an "action", therefore they cannot roll for Pets, Mastery Tokens, or other Global Rare Items.

Passive Cooking does work Offline, and your Passively Cooked Food will be stored in your Stockpile. The Offline Progress notification will tell you what has been stored in the stockpile.

In the event you stop Actively Cooking something, all items you are Passively Cooking will also stop. You cannot Passively Cook until you are Actively Cooking something.

Perfect Cook

Perfect Cook is a new mechanic that produces an upgraded version of the base product you are Cooking, providing extra Food Healing values as well as a much higher base Sale Price.

Each Active Cook action has a chance to provide a Perfect product. This chance can be increased using Mastery and other means. It is possible to acquire 100% Perfect Cook chance at later stages of the game.

Perfect Cook is classed as a bonus; therefore, it is not possible to produce a Perfect product using the Passive Cook mechanic.

There is a Setting on the Cooking Page and also in the Settings Page to enable or disable Perfect Cooking. If you do not wish to receive Perfect Items, you can simply toggle it off.

Successful Cook and the removal of Burnt Items

One thing we discussed during the planning process was the use that burnt food provides to the game.

We were quick to decide that burnt products add literally no benefit to the game. This led to the decision that burnt products will no longer be obtainable as we transition to a Successful Cook mechanic.

Now, products that fail to cook will be yeeted into oblivion, providing nothing for your efforts to Cook something delicious.

For those concerned about a specific item that requires Burnt Cave Fish (item).svg Burnt Cave Fish to obtain – take a look at the drop table for the Tentacle (monster).svg Tentacle Monster in Sandy Shores (combatArea).svg Sandy Shores.

This also means all Burnt Food, except the Burnt Cave Fish (item).svg Burnt Cave Fish, is no longer required for 100% item completion (they are also worth Coins.svg 0 now).

New Shop Upgrades

Along with the rework, we have two new Shop upgrades for you to purchase.

These are Quality of Life upgrades that will help streamline your progression.

  • Cooking (skill).svg Cooking Upgrade 1 - Automatically equip Food that is Actively Cooked if that Food is already equipped, or an empty Food slot is available. This can be toggled on or off.
  • Cooking (skill).svg Cooking Upgrade 2 - When running out of Food in Combat, automatically swap to a different Food Slot that contains food. This can be toggled on or off.

Food Source & Usage Rebalancing

Along with all the new content added within this rework, we need to address another part of the update.

This rework gave us the opportunity to look at the whole picture in terms of Food and how it is used throughout the game and come to a solution to balance this to our expectations of the game.

Here are the main points for the rebalance (details below in changelog):

  • Healing value for all Farming (skill).svg Farming products has been nerfed quite a lot, in favour of using these products in Cooked Products.
  • The base interval for Cooking Carp (item).svg Carps, Shark (item).svg Sharks, Cave Fish (item).svg Cave Fish, Manta Ray (item).svg Manta Rays and Whale (item).svg Whales has been increased.
  • The base sale price for above-mentioned Fish has been increased to accommodate for the increased intervals.
  • The minimum base interval in Fishing (skill).svg Fishing for all Cookable Fish has been increased. Maximum base interval remains unchanged. This means on average they will take longer to catch.

It's all well and good to address the Food itself, but we also took the opportunity to address food usage within Combat.svg Combat which will also provide some interesting new mechanics throughout the Combat Areas:

  • All Monsters within the Spider Forest (dungeon).svg Spider Forest Dungeon now have a Special Attack which introduces the brand new Poison mechanic.
  • All Monsters within the Icy Hills (combatArea).svg Icy Hills Combat Area, and Frozen Cove (dungeon).svg Frozen Cove Dungeon now have a Special Attack, introducing the brand new Frostburn ailment.
  • All Monsters within the Dragon Valley (combatArea).svg Dragon Valley Combat Area now have a Dragonbreath Special Attack (weaker than existing ones). This also means these Monsters that appear in the Dragons Den (dungeon).svg Dragons Den also contain the new Special Attack.
  • All Monsters within the Arid Plains (combatArea).svg Arid Plains Slayer (skill).svg Slayer Area now have a Lesser Sandstorm Special Attack. The Sand Beast (monster).svg Sand Beast keeps its existing Sandstorm Special Attack.
  • The Elementalist (monster).svg Elementalist now has 4 different Special Attacks. All with a low chance to proc, they will either inflict Stun, Burn, Freeze or Frostburn upon you.
  • The Bandit Leader (monster).svg Bandit Leader in the Bandit Base (dungeon).svg Bandit Base Dungeon has a new Special Attack.
  • The Elder Dragon (monster).svg Elder Dragon in the Dragons Den (dungeon).svg Dragons Den also has a Special Attack now.
Nerfed Buffed

New Agility Obstacles

  • Tier 3 - Burning Coals - +3% Cooking Skill XP, +5% Successful Cook Chance, -5% Damage to all Monsters.
  • Tier 5 - Rooftop Run - +3% Thieving Skill XP, +20% GP gained via Thieving, -0.2s Thieving Interval, +35 Stealth, -10% Damage to All Monsters.
  • Tier 8 - Sweltering Pools - +3% Mastery XP in Cooking, -3% Cooking Interval, +10% Healing Value for Food, +10% Auto Eat Efficiency, -20% Global Preservation Chance.

New Potion UI

The Potion UI has got a massive facelift, bringing a brand new design and functionality to help guide you through your Potion hoarding issues.

The brand new Potion UI comes equipped with:

  • Brand new UI inside of a popup that is much more pleasing to look at, with a layout that can fit more Potions on one screen.
  • You can now disable an active Potion by clicking the "Cancel" button.
  • You can now toggle "Auto Re-use Potion" on a per Skill basis from the new UI. This is no longer a Global Setting (remember, Combat.svg Combat is still classed as one Skill).
  • Added new filter settings to hide selected Potion Tiers. Your active Potion will always show.

Ancient Sword Rework

Something I wanted to highlight was the changes made to the Ancient Sword (item).svg Ancient Sword. It was a very lacklustre weapon, and was always overlooked in favour of other weapon choices. This rework aims to address the issues and give it a unique place in the game.

The Ancient Sword (item).svg Ancient Sword now:

  • Provides +20% Damage to all Monsters when you have 100% HP.
  • Has a Special Attack chance of 100%, meaning it will always proc.
  • Is roughly 2 times more common to obtain from the Pirate Booty (item).svg Pirate Booty chest.
  • Has a reduced Special Attack Lifesteal bonus of 20%, down from 25%.

Hopefully these changes make the weapon a viable choice for those around the mid-game.

Alpha v0.21 - (13th August 2021)


This Major Update is a lot different than all previous ones released. It focuses on providing an extremely important feature to the game, as well as fixing a lot of issues that have been present.

The lack of new content or changes to explore in this update might be disappointing to some, but I hope what it does provide is the functionality and stability you have been looking for in Melvor Idle.

I also want to point out that pretty much all credit for this update must be handed over to Coolrox95. He was the one who developed the Combat Rewrite and Offline Combat portion of this update. It has allowed for easier growth and scalability within the game, and also enabled one of the most important and highly requested features of the game to become a reality.

I ask that you pass on all thanks to him for this, as this update is not mine to take any credit for.

Combat Rewrite

It was well overdue, but the complete rewrite of Combat.svg Combat has been done. This rewrite will allow for faster development, as well as cleaning up many inconsistencies that exist throughout the previous Combat system.

What has Changed?

Most of the rework focused on the back-end side of things, changing the way Combat itself works and operates behind the scenes.

From a general player perspective, you won't notice much of a change at all. There are a few new QoL additions which are detailed below.

The most important change is that Combat has been transitioned to a tick-based system. What this means is that Combat performs its operations every 50ms, allowing for accurate calculations as well as increasing general performance.

New Stuff & QoL

There's a few new features and QoL that you will enjoy:

  • All buffs and debuffs will now display as an icon next to your HP (as well as the Enemy's). They also contain a tooltip detailing their effects and a number showing how many turns are remaining on the debuff.
  • Improved Damage Splashes allow for better visualization of when players/enemies are damaged and healed, and what source the damage is from.
  • Special Attack descriptions that contain buffs/debuffs will now highlight the buff/debuff in a different text colour.
  • Hot-swapping equipment is now possible, which means you can swap gear with a full bank and not have to worry about clearing a slot to unequip something if it is a direct swap.
  • Equipping a two-handed weapon, Javelins or Throwing Knives will now display that same weapon within the 2nd slot it takes up (slightly faded image).
  • There is now a Setting to disable Combat Progress bars if they are causing performance issues.
  • Due to the tick-based functionality, the new Combat system will mitigate browser throttling automatically by comparing timestamps and awarding you the correct progress if a large enough difference is detected.

There has also been some changes to Player Stat Calculations which will make them consistent across the board.

Changes to Player Stat Calculations

Several formulas for player stat calculations have been tweaked slightly to make them consistent with the stat calculations of enemies, as well as correcting some inconsistencies between the different ranged, magic and melee calculations. Overall these changes have resulted in a slight buff to players in combat. Outlined below are the changes to each of the core stats.

Melee & Ranged Max Hits

The base calculation for Melee and Ranged max hit has remained the same and is as follows:

[math]\text{Mat Hit} = \left \lfloor \text{Gamemode Multiplier} \times \left (1.3 + \frac{\text{Effective Strength Level}}{10} + \frac{\text{Strength Bonus}}{80} + \frac{\text{Effective Strength Level} \times \text{Strength Bonus}}{640} \right ) \right \rfloor[/math]

Strength bonus refers to the bonus provided by equipment. Gamemode Multiplier refers to the multiplier to all HP related values for a gamemode. This is 10 for Standard and Hardcore.svg Hardcore mode, and 100 for Adventure.png Adventure mode. Effective Strength Level is calculated from the player's skill levels and any hidden levels. This calculation has been changed for players to be consistent with enemies as follows:

Effective Melee Strength Level

Old: [math]\text{Strength Level} + \text{Hidden Strength Levels} + 8[/math]

New: [math]\text{Strength Level} + \text{Hidden Strength Levels} + 9[/math]

Effective Ranged Strength Level

Old: [math]\text{Ranged Level} + \text{Hidden Ranged Levels} + \text{Style Bonus}[/math]

New: [math]\text{Ranged Level} + \text{Hidden Ranged Levels} + 9[/math]

Note: The style bonus for the Accurate style has been changed to just provide +3 Hidden Ranged Levels. Overall this change increases the Effective Ranged Strength level by +9.

Magic Max Hits

The base calculation for magic max hit as remained the same for players:

[math]\text{Max Hit} = \left \lfloor \text{Gamemode Multiplier} \times \text{Spell Max Hit} \times \left ( 1 + \frac{\text{Magic Damage Bonus}}{100} \right ) \left ( 1 + \frac{\text{Magic Level} + \text{Hidden Magic Levels} + 1}{200} \right ) \right \rfloor[/math]

Magic Damage Bonus is the percent bonus provided by equipment.

Enemies have been changed to use the same formula as players, and have had their spell selection and magic damage bonuses adjusted to produce similar max hits as before, resulting in slightly lower values overall.

Evasion Ratings

The base calculation for evasion ratings is as follows:

[math]\text{Evasion Rating} = \text{Effective Defence Level} \times \left ( \text{Defence Bonus} + 64 \right )[/math]

Melee Evasion

The effective Defence level calculation has been changed to be consistent with Ranged and Magic Evasion.

Old: [math]\text{Defence Level} + \text{Hidden Defence Levels} + 8[/math]

New: [math]\text{Defence Level} + \text{Hidden Defence Levels} + 9[/math]

Ranged Evasion

The effective Defence level calculation has remained the same as:

Effective Defence Level: [math]\text{Defence Level} + \text{Hidden Defence Levels} + 9[/math]

Magic Evasion

The effective Defence level calculation has remained the same as:

Effective Defence Level: [math]0.7 \times \left ( \text{Magic Level} + \text{Hidden Magic Levels} \right ) + 0.3 \times \left ( \text{Defence Level} + \text{Hidden Defence Levels} + 9 \right )[/math]

Accuracy Ratings

The base calculation for accuracy rating is as follows:

[math]\text{Accuracy Rating} = \text{Effective Attack Level} \times \left ( \text{Attack Bonus} + 64 \right )[/math]

The attack bonus is the bonus provided by equipment.

Melee Accuracy

The effective Attack level calculation has been changed:

Old: [math]\text{Attack Level} + \text{Hidden Attack Levels} + 8[/math]

New: [math]\text{Attack Level} + \text{Hidden Attack Levels} + 9[/math]

Ranged Accuracy

The effective Attack level calculation has been changed:

Old: [math]\text{Ranged Level} + \text{Hidden Ranged Levels} + \text{Style Bonus}[/math]

New: [math]\text{Ranged Level} + \text{Hidden Ranged Levels} + 9[/math]

Note: The style bonus for the Accuracy style has been changed to just provide +3 Hidden Ranged Levels. Overall this change increases the Effective Attack Level by +1.

Magic Accuracy

The effective Attack level calculation has been changed:

Old: [math]\text{Magic Level} + \text{Hidden Magic Levels} + 8[/math]

New: [math]\text{Magic Level} + \text{Hidden Magic Levels} + 9[/math]

Summoning Max Hit

Summoning (skill).svg Summoning max hit has been changed to combine the values of both Summons. Previously it was the largest value of both Summons.

Offline Combat

Along with the rewrite, Offline Combat has also been added.

Offline Combat follows the same rules and functionality of all other Skills in the game. There is a 12 hour Offline cap, and you will be provided with your experience and items upon returning to the game.

The benefit of a tick-based system really shows here, allowing for players to log back into the game at the exact moment they would be if they were training Online.

Here is a breakdown of general Offline Combat features:

  • Offline Combat is calculated exactly as it would be if you were training Online.
  • Returning from an Offline Session will continue exactly where you would be if you were training Online. This includes the progress of a Dungeon, the HP of you or the Monster, and also how far into an Attack you are.
  • All dynamic modifiers to players and enemies are taken into account while Offline, including temporary modifiers from special attacks.
  • All Combat content can be completed Offline, with the exception of Into the Mist (dungeon).svg Into the Mist where you will return to the game at the start of the first boss fight (due to the Dungeon Pause mechanic).
  • Auto Slayer (upgrade).svg Auto Slayer works Offline, and follows the same rules as Online does when selecting a new Monster to fight.
  • Amulet of Looting (item).svg Amulet of Looting works Offline and will collect all Loot, as long as you have the available Bank space. Training without this Amulet will cause your loot to fill up the loot container (max 16 slots).
  • Bone Necklace (item).svg Bone Necklace works Offline and will bury all Bones that are dropped automatically.
  • All Combat.svg Combat Summoning (skill).svg Summoning Familiars and their respective Synergies work Offline.

  • Yes, it is possible to die Offline (more details about this below).

Dying Offline

As mentioned above, it is possible to die while Offline in Combat.

Dying while Offline will result in the same consequences as dying Online. This means losing an Item for Standard/Adventure.png Adventure Characters and losing your Character entirely for Hardcore.svg Hardcore Characters.

If you die Offline, Combat will not progress. There is also no way of the game notifying you that you died while away due to the nature of the game.

To help mitigate the risk of accidental deaths, these have been added to the game:

  • Offline Combat is disabled by default, and must be enabled by the Player.
  • Attempting to enable Offline Combat will display a large warning screen, where a Player must agree to the listed points before being able to turn it on.
  • Offline Combat can be disabled at any time. Re-enabling will require the same points as above to be agreed upon again.
  • You can now view the stats and special attacks of Monsters you have killed from the Monster log.

Offline Combat is DISABLED by default for all Characters. You will be required to enable it for each Character if you wish to use it (you won't miss the notification in game). This can be enabled/disabled as you please from the Settings page.


New Features

  • Offline Combat has been introduced, allowing for all Combat.svg Combat content to be completed Offline in the exact same manner as it would be done Online.

  • Improved Damage Splashes allow for better visualization of when players/enemies are damaged and healed, and what source the damage is from.
  • Hot-swapping equipment is now possible, which means you can swap gear with a full bank and not have to worry about clearing a slot to unequip something if it is a direct swap.
  • Special Attack descriptions that contain buffs/debuffs will now highlight the buff/debuff in a different text colour.
  • Equipping a two-handed weapon, Javelins or Throwing Knives will now display that same weapon within the 2nd slot it takes up (slightly faded image).

Alpha v0.20 - (11th June 2021)



Summoning (skill).svg Summoning is one of the largest and most in-depth Skills to have been released to date. It plays a large role in the world of Melvor, cementing its dark and rich history waiting to be uncovered by you.

This Skill requires you to utilize almost every single other Skill in the game in order to progress and unlock more content. As you continue to level up, you will unlock more powerful and unique benefits to give you that extra edge throughout the game.

Below outlines the basic mechanics of the Skill, and also provides an insight in what to expect from Summoning.


Discovering the existence of Summoning has provided you with the knowledge of a dark magic only told in tales.

You are given the ability to equip not only one, but TWO Familiars to aid you in your journey throughout Melvor.

There is a selection of 20 different Familiars, each one providing you with a unique passive bonus. They also use charges (just like Ranged (skill).svg Ranged Ammo), and are consumed every time and action is taken relating to the passive of your Familiar.

However, great power like this must be earned, and is only given to those who take the time to learn about the Familiar's respective Mark.

Combat Familiars

Half of the Familiars are classed as "Combat Familiars" and provide general benefits to assist within Combat.

On top of this, Combat Familiars also have the ability to attack enemies. They attack every 3 seconds, and have a pre-defined Max Hit (which is visible during Combat). Their accuracy/chance to hit is the same as yours.

And no, they cannot be hit or attacked by the Enemy :)


Hidden throughout the world of Melvor are the secrets that contain the true power of Summoning, granting the dark magic to those who discover them.

Upon discovering a Mark, you will be able to harness its power by creating Summoning Tablets based on respective Familiars, allowing you to utilize their benefits on your adventure.

These Marks can be further researched and leveled up to unlock even greater power relating to your Familiar in the form of Synergies.

If you happen to have the respective Familiar equipped while searching for further Marks, then the drop rate of the Marks will be doubled.

For those wondering - leveling up all the Marks to the maximum Level (4) is required for 100% completion. This is due to a new Pet that is being introduced (named Mark (pet).svg Mark) that is unlocked once you achieve this goal.


Tales tell of an ancient bond that can be formed between two different Familiars. Although this has never been witnessed, it takes true knowledge to be able to achieve such a thing.

By leveling up your Marks, you will unlock Synergies between Familiars that grants an extra unique passive that is active as long as both Familiars are equipped. These passives are unique in what they provide, and can assist greatly during your training.

Synergies are unlocked when their respective Mark levels meet the requirements. Higher level Marks unlock higher tier Synergies.

There are roughly 90 Synergies to unlock and discover.

To make it easier for you, there is also an integrated Synergy Search function within the game that allows you to search for any unlocked Synergy with ease. This search functionality also allows you to equip this Synergy directly from the search results.


Shards are the core ingredient for Summoning Tablet creation, and can be obtained only from the Shop at a cost of GP.

All Summoning Tablets use a variety of Shards in their creation, and there are 6 different coloured Shards to utilize.

Tablet Creation

Tablet Creation is very similar to all other crafting related Skills in the game.

However, Summoning adds another element to this process in the form of "Alternate Recipes". You will find that many of the Summoning Tablets you can create have multiple recipes to select from. Some even have up to 20 different recipes!

The quantity of items required within the recipes are weighted against the base sale price of the item.

There is a recipe for every stage of the game you're at, but not all of them will be efficient.

Leveling the Skill

As is the theme of this Skill, leveling it is a little bit different than all the others.

There are two ways to earn Skill XP:

  • Creating Summoning Tablets
  • Using Tablet charges, by equipping the Familiar and using them in the game

The Summoning Skill XP you earn while using charges is weighted against the interval of your action, as well as the Summoning Level required to unlock that Familiar. Generally this means that using a high level Summoning will give you more XP.

NOTE: Mastery XP can only be earned via Summoning Tablet Creation.

New Items and Content

With the introduction of a new Skill, there is also new items and content that come along with it. This includes:

Woodcutting Changes

Woodcutting (skill).svg Woodcutting has been causing some serious balance issues for the game, as well as any new content planning to be added. Specifically, it is the Multi-Tree (upgrade).svg Multi-Tree upgrade you can purchase from the Shop that is causing these issues.

Multi-Tree (upgrade).svg Multi-Tree allowed you to cut two trees simultaneously. This means each tree was running on its own timer and was rolling rare items for each of these actions. The result of this "double action" meant Woodcutting was always the go-to Skill for any rare items such as Mysterious Stone (item).png Mysterious Stones, Pets (like Ty (pet).svg Ty, and future global Pets), Signet Ring Half (a) (item).svg Signet Ring Half (a), and was also the go-to for the Summoning (skill).svg Summoning content during testing (gaining upwards of 2,000,000 XP/hr).

The upgrade was one of the very first Shop items you could buy in the very early days of Melvor Idle (when there were only 5 Skills in total). It has stuck around since, and I'm actually surprised it lasted this long. The fact that no similar mechanics exist in other Skills should provide some evidence as to how I feel about this kind of mechanic in general.

Instead of leaving it as is and balancing around it or applying exceptions to Woodcutting (skill).svg Woodcutting only for current and future content, now was the right time to adjust the mechanics and bring the Skill back in line with the general feel of the game. However, I have done this in a way that retains the original purpose of the Multi-Tree (upgrade).svg Multi-Tree Upgrade.

Summarized Changes to Woodcutting

  • Multi-Tree (upgrade).svg Multi-Tree is now being combined into one single action.
  • Your action's interval is determined by the highest interval out of both trees you are cutting.
  • The XP you earn is weighted against the interval stated above. This means XP rates have not actually changed, and are staying the same.
  • Logs are provided in the same way XP is. However, the amount is rounded down as it is not possible to receive half of an item in this game.
  • Rare Items in the game roll on a per action basis. Combining Multi-Tree (upgrade).svg Multi-Tree into a single action means you will only be provided with one roll per action, even though you're cutting two trees.
  • A complete visual representation on exactly what quantity of Items and XP you are receiving per action has been added.

Rare Item Drop Rates

In the initial Announcement, I mentioned drop rates for rare items were not changing. After testing this change on the Test Server for the last few weeks, and gathering data and feedback from players, I have decided to adjust drop rates for some rare items. At the end of the day, it was only fair that the entire game benefits off of a change like this.

Switching Woodcutting (skill).svg Woodcutting to a single action now allows me to buff global rare items without worrying about further snowballing the effects of the old Multi-Tree (upgrade).svg Multi-Tree upgrade.

  • Increased global drop rate for Signet Ring Half (a) (item).svg Signet Ring Half (a) to [math]\frac{Level Req}{16,500,000}[/math], up from [math]\frac{Level Req}{19,800,000}[/math].
  • Increased global drop rate for all Mastery Tokens.gif Mastery Tokens to [math]\dfrac{1}{\dfrac{18,500}{Milestones Unlocked}}[/math] up from [math]\dfrac{1}{\dfrac{20,000}{Milestones Unlocked}}[/math]
  • Increased global drop rate for Mysterious Stone (item).png Mysterious Stones to 0.025% per action, up from 0.015%.

Important Combat Adjustments

For those who may or may not know, there is a mechanic in the game where Players and Enemies can deal extra damage to one another depending on an existing status effect (like being Stunned).

There was a lot of confusion around the consistency with this mechanic, and how it should actually work. With this update, we have finalised the general mechanics around these status effects.

When the enemy inflicts one of the below status effects on you, a very noticeable popup will briefly display to let you know. This notification can also be disabled in Settings.

It is very important that you read what they do, as you may die unexpectedly if you do not.

  • Stunned/Frozen - The Enemy deals 30% extra Damage while you are stunned
  • Sleep - The Enemy deals 20% extra Damage while you are sleeping

Combat Triangle Changes

The Combat Triangle for all gamemodes has received some minor adjustments to the damage values. Below are the changes.

Player Style Game Mode VS Attack (skill).svg Melee VS Ranged (skill).svg Ranged VS Magic (skill).svg Magic
Old New Old New Old New
Attack (skill).svg Melee Standard +0% +0% +10% +10% -10% -15%
Hardcore.svg Hardcore & Adventure.png Adventure +0% +0% +10% +10% -20% -25%
Ranged (skill).svg Ranged Standard -10% -15% +0% +0% +10% +10%
Hardcore.svg Hardcore & Adventure.png Adventure -20% -25% +0% +0% +10% +10%
Magic (skill).svg Magic Standard +10% +10% -10% -15% +0% +0%
Hardcore.svg Hardcore & Adventure.png Adventure +10% +10% -20% -25% +0% +0%

Artisan Skill UI Updates

This update includes the start of the transition to a more clear and consistent UI throughout the game.

Starting with most Artisan Skills (Smithing (skill).svg Smithing, Fletching (skill).svg Fletching, Crafting (skill).svg Crafting, Runecrafting (skill).svg Runecrafting, Herblore (skill).svg Herblore & Summoning (skill).svg Summoning), the UI will be moved to an icon-based layout that will provide all necessary information you seek.

Included in these UI changes is the ability to see your Preservation & Item Doubling chances, as well as how much Skill XP, Mastery XP and Mastery Pool XP you will earn for that action.

These changes will feed into the rest of the game in some way or another.

Please note that Skills will still retain their unique design. I am simply referring to the icon and image usage when talking about transitioning this to the rest of the game.

Alpha v0.19.2 - (1st April 2021)

April Fools Event

Welcome to the next Event Update for Melvor Idle!!

This update celebrates Melvor Idle's 2nd favourite day of the year - April Fools!

This year, we've decided to turn it up a bit and provide you with something fun and chaotic to enjoy for a few weeks.


CHAOS MODE is an all new limited gamemode for you to try! Coming equipped with an array of fun mechanics and features for you to mess around with.

The idea behind Chaos Mode is to get as far as you can in the shortest amount of time. I personally won't track the time, but the Gamemode will only be playable for a few weeks.

The rules of CHAOS MODE are simple:

  • Item Corruption is unlocked
  • 25% Interval Reduction on all Skills and Attack Speeds (Including Enemy)
  • All Enemies you face will have at least 1 random Passive
  • All equipped items are lost on Death
  • Same Combat Triangle as Hardcore & Adventure Mode
  • Golbin Raid is not available
  • Don't fight a Chicken

Item Corruption

Item Corruption is only available in CHAOS MODE.

You are given the power to use the Weapons & Gear you make or find, and turn them into completely random modifiers that either benefit you, or make your adventure a living hell.

Item Corruptions are applied to a Combat Equipment Slot, and are permanent as long as you don't roll another modifier. This means you have 10 "slots" to add random corruptions to.

These Item Corruptions cost GP to perform, equal to the value of the Item. There is a chance for the item to be destroyed, because why not? Corruptions are also based on a tier system, where the higher tier modifiers provide larger bonuses, as well as having more modifiers active at once.

Here is the tier list:

  • Tier 1 - Base Item Values < 200 GP - 1 Random Modifier - Low Modifier Value Range (+/-30) - 40% Chance to Destroy the Item
  • Tier 2 - Base Item Values < 10K GP - 2 Random Modifiers - Medium Modifier Value Range (+/-50) - 30% Chance to Destroy the Item
  • Tier 3 - Base Item Values < 400K GP - 3 Random Modifiers - High Modifier Value Range (+/-75) - 20% Chance to Destroy the Item
  • Tier 4 - Base Item Values >= 400K GP - 4 Random Modifiers - Very High Modifier Value Range (+/-99) - 10% Chance to Destroy the Item

The item must be equipped to the respective Equipment Slot for a corruption to be applied. You don't need to keep the item in that slot to keep the Corruption though.

Other Silly Nonsense

In true April Fools fashion, there is a bunch of other silly nonsense through the game. Have fun with this!

  • Enemy Special Attack descriptions now display the damage value based on your Damage Reduction, instead of the base damage.
  • Your listed Max Hit now includes values from your Damage Modifiers (Not including Special Attacks).

Mobile Push Notifications

Introducing Mobile Push Notifications!

If you are a Mobile Player, or also use your Mobile Device to continue progress while away from the PC then you'll be happy about this.

You will now receive Push Notifications when you reach the Offline Time cap, or your crops in Farming (skill).svg Farming are ready to grow!

Be sure to have Push Notifications enabled for your Mobile Device for these to work.

Link your Mobile Device

Within the Settings of the game, you can link your Mobile Device to your Cloud Account. This will allow the Desktop version of the game to schedule Push Notifications for you if you decide to close the game.

Just note that this can only be setup from the App itself on your Mobile Device.

New Features

Alpha v0.19 - (4th March 2021)


It's been a while, but now is the perfect time to introduce our next Skill into the game.


Classed as a "Gathering" Skill, Agility (skill).svg Agility is designed to provide numerous "Global Active Passives" to your character that can assist with pretty much all areas of the game. Almost all numbers can be affected by Agility in one way or another.

You are given the task of constructing your very own Agility Obstacle Course, with each obstacle you build coming equipped with different Agility XP rates, GP Rates, time to complete (Obstacle Interval) and Global Active Passives attached to it.

Starting at the very first obstacle, your character will complete each Obstacle in their respective order until a lap is complete. Upon completing a lap, you will restart the Obstacle Course and go again. You cannot choose which obstacle to start it, it is always the first.

Strategic planning and thinking will come into effect with this Skill, and how you utilise the various Obstacles is entirely up to you.


For every 10 Agility (skill).svg Agility Levels, you will be provided with an empty spot to construct an Obstacle of your choosing. All obstacles are categorized to suit their respective position within your Agility Course, meaning you can't place an Obstacle anywhere you like. In total, there are roughly 43 Obstacles to build, each with individual Mastery.svg Masteries to complete.

These Obstacles, as mentioned above, come equipped with various benefits, buffs and debuffs. It is up to you to make a decision as to which Obstacle is best suits your current needs.

Building an Obstacle is not free. There is always a GP cost attached to it, and some later obstacles require various extra Items to build.

Active & Inactive Obstacles

When building an Obstacle, the Global Active Passives provided are always active in most circumstances.

An Obstacle becomes inactive if there is a gap in your Obstacle Course prior to it. Inactive Obstacles disable their respective Global Active Passives. The gap must be filled before they reactivate.

Remember, if you cannot reach the Obstacle during your training, that Obstacle will be inactive. This also means you cannot gain any XP or GP from this Obstacle. Don't worry though, the game will tell you if an Obstacle is inactive.

Obstacle Cost Reductions

I'll be honest, Obstacles are not cheap, especially late game.

You will find yourself swapping Obstacles quite consistently based on what your current goal is throughout the game. To help with this, there is many ways you can reduce the cost of Obstacles to ease the burden of costs.

Here are some ways to ease the pain:

  • Every time you construct an Obstacle, you gain +4% Item Cost Reduction for that Obstacle only. Stacks up to 10 times maximum for a total of +40% Item Cost Reduction.
  • Reaching Level 80 Mastery.svg Mastery will grant +10% Cost Reduction for that Obstacle only.
  • Reaching Level 95 Mastery.svg Mastery will grant +10% Cost Reduction for that Obstacle only.
  • 50% Mastery.svg Mastery Pool bonus grants +10% Cost Reduction for all Obstacles.
  • 95% Mastery.svg Mastery Pool bonus grants +15% Item Cost Reduction for all Obstacles.
  • Agility Skillcape (item).svg Agility Skillcape (and Maximum Skillcape (item).svg Max/Cape of Completion (item).svg Completion Cape) grants +20% Cost Reduction for all Obstacles while equipped.

Item Cost Reduction is capped at 95%.

Adventure Mode

The 3rd and final Official Gamemode that will change everything about the way you play the game.

Adventure.png Adventure Mode brings a whole new challenge to the game, forcing you to make strategic decisions at every step of your journey.

In this Gamemode, Skills are locked behind a GP cost that must be unlocked individually. Every time you decide to unlock a Skill, the cost of the next unlock increases.

At the start of the Gamemode, the only Skills available to you are Attack (skill).svg Attack, Strength (skill).svg Strength, Defence (skill).svg Defence, and Hitpoints (skill).svg Hitpoints. Everything else is locked.

To help kickstart your new adventure, you are given a Bronze Weapon and 10 Basic Food. So generous, right?

Adventure Mode is also bound by the same Combat Triangle Modifiers you find in Hardcore.svg Hardcore Mode.

Sounds easy, what's the catch?

Leveling Skills in Adventure.png Adventure Mode is completely different to Standard. Non-Combat Skill Levels cannot go above your Combat Level.

When you eventually reach the maximum level, the Skill will still continue to train as normal, but you won't receive any further XP. You will need to go back into Combat, and level your Combat Level.

Summarized Rules of Adventure Mode

  • Skills are locked behind a GP cost to unlock.
  • Start with only Attack (skill).svg Attack, Strength (skill).svg Strength, Defence (skill).svg Defence, & Hitpoints (skill).svg Hitpoints unlocked.
  • A Bronze Weapon and 10 Basic Food is provided in your bank at the start.
  • Your Non-Combat Skill Levels cannot go above your Combat Level.
  • Hitpoints, Damage, and Healing numbers are multiplied by a further 10 (just a visual change).
  • Harsher Combat Triangle Modifiers. Same as Hardcore Mode.
  • This is a safe Gamemode. It is okay to die.

Boss Pets

Boss Pets have finally arrived to the game!

These cute little critters can be found in every single Dungeon in the game. Upon killing a Boss in a dungeon, you have a chance of obtaining one of the Boss Pets!

These Boss Pets provide a small Combat bonus to assist you in your adventures.

For those curious, the Into the Mist (dungeon).svg Into the Mist Boss Pet requires 5 completions of the Dungeon. This is also unlocked retroactively, so there is no need to complete another 5.

I hope everyone has a fantastic festive season!

Alpha v0.18 - (14th December 2020)

Slayer 2.0

Slayer (skill).svg Slayer has been reworked with a new progression route, and an increased variety of content and gear.


Slayer (skill).svg Slayer is a skill that has the ability to introduced players into new mechanics and challenges that other skills cannot do. The current system of Slayer did not really provide the variety we were after, and we knew we had to change it.

The new Slayer takes the existing fundamental mechanics and turns them into something that we feel is more enjoyable and more rewarding.

Players will see a tonne of new content including brand new high level monsters and very powerful items. The progression from early levels will feel much better, and Players are given more control to train this Skill.

Slayer Tasks

These are now broken down into 5 "Levels" that can be chosen when selecting a new task. These are categorised based on Enemy Combat Level.

They also cost Slayer Coins.svg Slayer Coins to select a new Task or when skipping your current task (but are free when completing a task and being assigned a new Task from the same Level automatically).

  • Easy - Combat Level 1-49 - Free (Unlocked at Slayer Level 1)
  • Normal - Combat Level 50-99 - 2,000 Slayer Coins.svg Slayer Coins (Unlocked at Slayer Level 25)
  • Hard - Combat Level 100-199 - Costs 5,000 Slayer Coins.svg Slayer Coins (Unlocked at Slayer Level 50)
  • Elite - Combat Level 200-374 - Costs 15,000 Slayer Coins.svg Slayer Coins (Unlocked at Slayer Level 75)
  • Master - Combat Level 375+ - Costs 25,000 Slayer Coins.svg Slayer Coins (Unlocked at Slayer Level 85)

Slayer Task Extensions

Slayer (skill).svg Slayer Tasks can be extended once at a cost of Slayer Coins.svg Slayer Coins by clicking the Extend Slayer Task option in the Slayer Task Panel.

New Slayer Areas

There are 5 new Slayer Areas to tackle, all with brand new monsters and challenges. These Slayer Areas also have Area Effects that apply a debuff to you when fighting Enemies in it. These are the Runic Ruins (combatArea).svg Runic Ruins, Arid Plains (combatArea).svg Arid Plains, Shrouded Badlands (combatArea).svg Shrouded Badlands, Perilous Peaks (combatArea).svg Perilous Peaks, and Dark Waters (combatArea).svg Dark Waters.

New Slayer Dungeon - Miolite Caves

Miolite Caves (dungeon).svg Miolite Caves is a new mid-game dungeon with 7 Monsters. Rewards the new Miolite Platebody (item).svg Miolite Armour and Miolite Sceptre (item).svg Miolite Sceptre.

Miolite Armour is a Hybrid Attack (skill).svg Melee / Magic (skill).svg Magic Armour set. Very similar to Ice Platebody (item).svg Ice Armour which is a Hybrid Attack (skill).svg Melee / Ranged (skill).svg Ranged Armour set.

New & Updated Slayer Gear, Progression & Requirements

The Slayer (skill).svg Slayer Gear in the shop that you can purchase has changed in many ways, which includes the brand new Master Tier of Slayer Gear.

Master Slayer Gear

You now able to acquire Master Tier Slayer Gear, which is much better than the Elite Tier.

This Tier of Slayer Gear provides Area Effect Negation, Damage Reduction, as well as increased chance to double dropped Loot.

New Gear Progression

It felt wrong allowing players to ignore complete tiers of items, and this didn't feel right in terms of progression. This has now changed to address this issue.

Players are now required to upgrade the Slayer Gear pieces, starting at Basic, to reach the highest tier of Armour available.

This is done by purchasing the new Slayer Upgrade Kit within the Slayer Shop for the respective tier, and combining it with the desired Slayer item to upgrade it.

Updated Slayer Gear & Benefits

With the inclusion of Slayer Task tiers, Players are now required to complete a set amount of Slayer Tasks before they are able to purchase the Slayer Upgrade Kits.

This also means we have made Slayer Gear just a little bit better in general.

These new benefits & requirements are:

  • Basic Slayer Gear - Still 10,000 Slayer Coins.svg Slayer Coins - Each piece has 10% Area Effect Negation - Completion of 20 Normal Slayer Tasks required to purchase.
  • Strong Slayer Gear - Requires Slayer Gear Upgrade Kit (Strong) (item).svg Slayer Gear Upgrade Kit (Strong) (50,000 Slayer Coins.svg Slayer Coins) - Each piece has 20% Area Effect Negation - Completion of 30 Hard Slayer Tasks required to purchase Kit.

Endgame Content Pt.2

This update includes Part 2 of the storyline revolving around the Gods, as well as a brand new dungeon for Players to face.

The story so far

For those of you who don't know - there is a storyline in Melvor Idle. The first of this was introduced in Alpha v0.15 with the God Dungeons.

When you load into the game, you may be provided with one or two books to read, depending on your current progress.

I urge you to have a read of these books as they can provide an insight into why you're fighting the Gods, and what it is all leading up to within this update.

Into the Mist

Into the Mist (dungeon).svg Into the Mist is the brand new Dungeon, and the first to be classed as Insane difficulty. Upon defeating the Fire God Dungeon (dungeon).svg Fire God Dungeon, you will be provided with Part 2 of the storyline and will also unlock access to this Dungeon.

The Final Boss is a 3 Phase battle which will test your preparation and skills in each Combat Style (Attack (skill).svg Melee, Ranged (skill).svg Ranged, and Magic (skill).svg Magic). Be sure to pay attention to the Enemy Passives, as it will tell you which Combat Style you must use.

This Dungeon is extremely difficult, and there is a very strong chance you will NOT be able to idle it. Luckily, you only need to beat the Dungeon once to claim all rewards.

Dungeon Mechanics

  • Upon being successfully hit by an Enemy, you gain a stack of Affliction. Each stack reduces your Maximuim Hitpoints (skill).svg Hitpoints by 1% of your original Max HP. This resets after defeating the Enemy (Multi-hit Special Attacks are classed as ONE attack). Affliction is capped at 50 stacks.
  • The first 20 Monsters in this dungeon are randomised. Any Monster in the game, including those in Dungeons, can be selected if their Combat Level is between 165 & 677 inclusive. Monsters found in Dark Waters (combatArea).svg Dark Waters Slayer Area cannot be selected.
  • The final Boss is a 3 stage fight, so be prepared.

  • Hovering or clicking an item in the bank will mention if it can be equipped to the Passive Slot.
  • You only gain the item's Passive, not the item's Standard stats (this includes flat Damage Reduction the item contains).

Infernal Stronghold

The 3rd new Dungeon added to the game is the heavily requested Infernal Stronghold (dungeon).svg Infernal Stronghold. This is an upgraded, more deadly version of the Volcanic Cave (dungeon).svg Volcanic Cave.

Completing this Dungeon will reward you with the Infernal Cape (item).svg Infernal Cape as well as an Infernal Core (item).png Infernal Core.

Alpha v0.17 - (14th October 2020)

Mastery System Rework

As it currently stands, the Mastery.svg Mastery System within Melvor Idle is in a position where it simply requires a complete overhaul. The sense of progression and benefits in the current system are sub-par at best.

This rework aims to take the original concepts of the Mastery System, and add further avenues of progression in hopes the Player will feel a sense of reward for progressing it.

The system has been designed to be uniform in nature, where everything works together to achieve a set goal, as well as scale with ease alongside new content that may be introduced into the game without it being a detriment to the Player.

Mastery XP & Progression

Each individual item within the game still has its own {Mastery Level attached, with the maximum Mastery Level being 99.

The amount of Mastery XP required for each level has changed. The required Mastery XP to level up is now the same as it is for Skill Levels.

Mastery XP is earned per action within a Skill. The amount of Mastery XP you receive is based on these factors:

  • The time it takes to perform the action.
  • The individual Mastery Level of the item you are training on.
  • The total Mastery Level for that Skill.
  • The amount of unlocked Milestones for that Skill. Reaching Skill Level 99 is classed as a Milestone.

Mastery Pool

The Mastery Pool is a brand new mechanic introduced in this rework, and is designed to provide direct support to you in your efforts to achieve the 100% Mastery Goal.

Every time you perform an action that grants Mastery XP, an extra 25% of that Mastery XP is added to the respective Skill's Mastery Pool with the bonus increasing to 50% at Skill Level 99. This Mastery XP sitting within the Mastery Pool can then be spent to level up other items within the same Skill.

The Mastery Pool can only hold a set amount of Mastery XP based on how many items are in that Skill, so be sure to manage it efficiently.

Mastery Pool Checkpoints

Every Mastery Pool has four Checkpoints, and upon reaching these you will unlock a passive bonus. These checkpoints are reached at 10%, 25%, 50% & 95% respectively.

These bonuses will continue to activate, and deactivate depending on how you utilise the Pool within the Skill itself. So be sure to pay attention before spending all of your Mastery Pool XP.

Mastery Bonuses

Each individual item still provides a bonus, depending on the Mastery Level of that item. This existing system did not need to be changed, as I believe it works well as a whole when utlised correctly.

There are also new Mastery Level 99 bonuses for all items that provide just that little bit extra to help you along your journey.

Mastery Tokens

Now, you're all itching to know what is being done with these pesky items.

Mastery Tokens.gif Mastery Tokens were added to the game initially as a "band-aid" fix to a much larger issue. Since then, they became pretty much the only way to make decent progress with Mastery.

Mastery Tokens within the rework act as a small helping hand. Something you can acquire, and use straight away to get a small nudge in terms of progression. It is no longer possible for them to be "wasted", and you no longer need to hoard them for 9 months before using one.

New Token Bonus: Grants Mastery Pool XP equal to 0.1% of the maximum Mastery Pool XP for the respective skill.

Important Changes Coming

The Mastery System required a large amount of balancing, and rethinking of bonuses that are currently in the game.

Due to these changes, these are the most important changes that will be included with the update:

  • Herblore (skill).svg Herblore Tier unlocks changed to Mastery.svg Mastery Levels [1, 20, 50, 90], up from [1, 15, 40, 65]. With the new Mastery Mechanics, it will take roughly the same amount of time to reach Level 90 Mastery in the new system as it did to reach Level 65 Mastery in the old system.
  • The Thieving Skillcape (item).svg Thieving Skillcape has been changed. The benefit is now: "Reduce Thieving (skill).svg Thieving Interval by 0.5 seconds".
  • Crafting Skillcape (item).svg Crafting Skillcape now reduces the Crafting (skill).svg Crafting Interval by 0.5s, instead of a flat 50% reduction.

Bank Rework

The Bank is one of the most important aspects of the game. This rework aims to address most issues with the Bank, while provided much-requested QoL additions in the process.


The Bank has always been left behind in updates. As the game scales, and more content & mechanics are introduced, it was becoming apparent that the Bank needed a large overhaul to bring it up to scratch.

The new bank is designed to be scaled with ease alongside new content, as well as providing the Player with more options to organise their items.

The Bank will always be worked on to provide QoL to the Player, so I will be listening to all feedback regarding the Bank.

Bank Tabs

One of the most requested features for the Bank has finally arrived.

Everyone is provided 10 Bank tabs to organise their inventory. These tabs allow for easy organisation, as well as quick access to items you need.

For Desktop users, you are able to drag any item into any tab you wish. For everyone else, there is an option at the top of the bank to quickly move items into new tabs. Kind of like a Bulk Move Item mode.

The first item within the Tab determines the image that is displayed.

Bank Layout

The Bank is now separated into two sections: The Main Container and the Bank Sidebar.

The Main Container is just like it has always been, the section that stores all your items.

The Bank Sidebar is the new section which replaces the Dropdown menu you have been used to. Selecting an item will display this sidebar will all details and actions relating to your item. It's just like the dropdown, but with many more options to mess around with.

This new Bank Sidebar allows for easy scaling with new mechanics and ideas around items.

You are also able to see the Item Stats for the selected item, as well as change settings relating to the bank including New Bank Sorting Options.

On Mobile devices, this Bank Sidebar will pop-out for you when selecting an item.

More Control

The new Bank gives you more QoL control with actions you can perform with items.

The introduction of Sliders allows for quick and easy equipping, selling, opening or claiming of items. There is no need to open extra dropdowns and power through a bunch of options to get the quantities you need.

Equipping an item is also a lot more intuitive. You can select which Equipment Set you want the item to go to, as well as see what will be replaced when you equip that item. This also includes the option to equip X amount of Ammo.

Bulk Selling

Another new option you get is the ability to Bulk Sell All of your items.

By simply activating the option at the top of the Bank, you will be able to mark any unlocked item for Sale to quickly remove them from your Bank.

Game Guide

A long awaited inclusion to assist new Players.


Melvor Idle is not your typical Idle game. For those who played RuneScape, you'll know that it's hard to simply "pick up and go".

This update includes the start of what I like to call the "Game Guide".

The Game Guide is a tutorial detailing the most important aspects a Player needs to know, and provides a helpful avenue to progressing in the game. It's short, but it gets straight to the point.

It will be worked on with every update, ensuring Players get the best experience possible.

How to Access

Players are greeted with a "Click This" tooltip that lies on the Image of the page they are currently on.

Clicking this image on any page will bring up the Game Guide that relates to that page.

Item Doubling Mechanic Changes

Item Doubling Mechanics in Melvor Idle have always been odd in the way they was handled.

Previously, each item you equipped that had a chance to double resources would roll that chance individually. This means if you had 3 items that had a chance to doubled items, it would be possible to double the item 3 times.

Now, item doubling chances are additive. This means if the item has a chance to double, these chances add up into 1 item doubling chance.

Important to Note: This only affects items that have a % chance to double. Items that specifically mention that they double items will always roll separately.


Prior to v0.17 - You have 3 items equipped that provide 5% chance to double resources each. When you gather a resource, you have a 5% chance to double the item for each of these items.

It is possible to double the item 3 times. So you end up with 1 * 2 * 2 * 2 items in the end, which equals 8 items.

After v0.17 - The above 3 items now give you a total of +15% chance to double the resource. It will only roll once per action.

This means you can now only get 1 * 2 items, which equals 2.

Golbin Raid Inclusions & Balancing

Please note that this is not Golbin Raid Stage 2

This update includes some minor balance changes to the Golbin Raid Minigame, as well as two nifty inclusions.

New Inclusions

Golbin Raid Bosses have been added. These appear as the final Enemy for every 10 Waves. They are much more powerful than your regular Golbins, so watch out!

The Golbins now all have randomised names! They are all named after Past, Present and Future Elite Supporters from Patreon. They also receive a randomised Trait to give them a bit of a personality.


Exact Numbers are in the changelog at the bottom.

  • Increased scaling for Golbin Raid Coins. You now get more the further you go!
  • Reduced Golbin HP scaling so they are no longer as beefy early game.
  • Increased Stat Bonus scaling for the Golbins. They hit a little harder now.
  • The minimum quantity of Food you can get is now equal to the Wave you are up to.
  • Reduced enemy respawn time by 50% - Faster waves, faster Raids, faster gains.

Cape of Completion

And no, this item does not count towards Item Completion. That would just be silly.

Changed Features

  • Changed how double item chance mechanics work. Items, potions, pets and other bonuses that provide a +% chance of receiving double items is now an additive bonus.

Alpha v0.16 - "The Art of Magic" - (22nd July 2020)

Magic Content Update

This update introduces brand new mechanics for Magic (skill).svg Magic which includes new Spellbooks, new Magic Gear, and an updated Runecrafting (skill).svg Runecrafting.


Curses are Debuffs that a Player can apply to an Enemy, on top of using a standard Magic (skill).svg Magic spell. These cost additional Rune Essence (item).svg Runes per Player attack turn, even if you miss.

All Curses have a set % chance to apply to an Enemy and last 3 Enemy attack turns if applied.

These cannot stack, and only one Curse can be applied at a given time.


Auroras are buffs that a Player can activate to provide a unique benefit in Combat.svg Combat.

All Aurora buffs last as long as you are wielding a Magic (skill).svg Magic Weapon and you have the required Rune Essence (item).svg Runes to keep them active. An Aurora uses Rune Essence (item).svg Runes every time you attack.

You can only have one Aurora active at a time.

Tier III Auroras require the Book of Eli (item).svg Book of Eli to be equipped to use.

Ancient Magicks

Ancient Magicks are a brand new, heavy hitting Spellbook with some satisfying effects.

Each Spell within this book requires a specific task to be completed in order to unlock them for use. Hovering or Clicking on the "?" in the Ancient Magicks spellbook will show the requirements.

Due to their unique abilities, you are not able to use Curses or Damage Modifying Auroras alongside them.

Alt. Magic (Non-Combat Magic)

Magic (skill).svg Alt. Magic is an alternative way to level Magic (skill).svg Magic using Spells outside of Combat.svg Combat.

These non-Combat Magic (skill).svg Magic Spells provide a unique approach to certain mechanics in the game, at a cost of Rune Essence (item).svg Runes. This is a system that will continue to be built on as development progresses to provide many optional pathways for a Player to take.

You can find a new skills tab called Magic (skill).svg Alt. Magic to train this Skill.

Things to note:


These cute little critters have invaded Melvor and are waiting to be found!

Pets are a new addition which provide a small, permanent, passive benefit when they are eventually found. There is a very small chance you will find one when performing a specific action in game.

Right now, there are 20 Pets in game, and most of them are found by simply training Skills. They count towards your completion percentage.

Hardcore Mode

Hardcore.svg Hardcore Mode is the second official gamemode for Melvor Idle that can be selected upon creating a Character.

This mode plays the same as Standard, but with a few nasty adjustments to provide an extra challenge.

More features, changes, and adjustments will be made throughout development of the game.

Rules of Hardcore

  • This gamemode is Permadeath. If you die, your Character is deleted permanently.
  • No Passive Hitpoints (skill).svg Health Regeneration.
  • Your Bank is limited to 80 maximum slots when buying from the Shop. This can only be increased further by claiming Bank Slot Token (item).svg Bank Tokens.
  • Harsher Combat Triangle penalties.

Character Selection

Character Selection is a brand new feature that allows you to create up to 3 different Characters that you can seamlessly switch between using a single account.

These Characters can be linked to one Cloud account that you can take with you anywhere you go, on any device.

Upon loading the game, you will notice the new selection screen as well as an option to toggle the Local or Cloud saves to select. You can also create new Characters from the same screen.


  • You can seamlessly switch Characters from the top-right dropdown menu.
  • A Cloud account is not required to utilise this feature.
  • Character completion is tracked per character, not account-wide.
  • Yes, it is possible to play all three Characters at the same time in separate windows on Desktop.
  • The Character Selection distinguishes between Local Save and Cloud Save.

Combat Triangle and Mechanic Adjustments

Alongside the new Magic (skill).svg Magic Content, we are introducing adjustments to how the Combat Triangle is defined within Melvor Idle.

Previously, there was a lack of definition for each Combat.svg Combat Style which allowed Players to simply choose either Attack (skill).svg Melee, Ranged (skill).svg Ranged, or Magic (skill).svg Magic without much consequence. These changes are aimed at providing a reason to use different styles against different enemies.

Although the changes seem highly consequential, this actually makes it possible to completely idle all current content within the game, which is one of the main issues this addresses.

The below diagram shows new buffs and debuffs a player will receive when using specific Combat.svg Combat Styles against certain enemies. The second diagram shows Hardcore.svg Hardcore Mode's more brutal adjustments.

New Manual Eat Mechanic

Another issue this update addressed was the unfortunate mechanic of manually Eating to "cheese" late-game content. With the addition of the above Combat Triangle adjustments, it seemed fitting to address this mechanic at the same time.

As it stood, you were able to spam the Eat button to continuously Heal during Combat.svg Combat with no consequence. This in turn allowed Players to complete late-game content prior to the intended requirements.

Now, when you eat food manually, your Attack will be reset. This also means if a Special Attack was about to activate, it will no longer proc.

Increased Maximum Hitpoints

There are now items and passives in the game that grant Increased Maximum Hitpoints (skill).svg Hitpoints.

As the name suggests, your Maximum Hitpoints (skill).svg HP increases when the items are equipped. This also means that your Hitpoints (skill).svg Hitpoints can be higher than the prior Maximum, which was Hitpoints (skill).svg 990 Hitpoints at Hitpoints Level 99.

Updated God Armour Images

Since the release of Alpha v0.15, it has been noted quite a few times that the existing artwork of the God Armour did not suit the style and "simplicity" of the game. I agree, and it is time to change that.

This update introduces updated artwork to suit the style of the game.

All edited artwork was kindly provided by Breindahl, one of our Discord Server Moderators and long-standing Member of the Community. Please be sure to pass all thanks to him for the hard work he put into editing the images!

Alpha v0.15.3 (17th June 2020)


I have a little update for everyone which includes some fixes and nice new QoL features that I assume everyone will love. Most of these were scheduled for v0.16, but there was no point keeping you waiting for it.

New Features

  • Introducing the Combat.svg Combat Minibar - This nifty little bar will appear in the bottom right of your screen upon entering combat. It shows your current HP, provides a button to eat food or run away, and clicking the HP bar brings you straight back to the Combat.svg Combat page. This minibar will display on all pages, so you are no longer required to keep checking back to make sure you are not about to die. If you do not wish to see this, you can disable it in settings.
  • You can now Sell ALL but 1. This setting remembers your choice, so it will update the sale quantity for each bank item you click to easily sell all but 1 without needing to select the option each time.
  • Hovering over an item in a crafting-related skill will now show the recipe in a tooltip.

Changed Features

  • Ice Shortbow (item).svg Ice Shortbows now have +37 Ranged (skill).svg Ranged Strength Bonus.
  • Ice Longbow (item).svg Ice Longbows now have +75 Ranged (skill).svg Ranged Strength Bonus.
  • Increased Big ol Ron (item).svg Big ol Ron Slash and Defend accuracies to +138, up from +118.
  • Increased Ancient Sword (item).svg Ancient Sword Special Attack Chance to 25%, up from 20%.
  • The Bone Necklace (item).svg Bone Necklace now rewards 2x the amount of Prayer (skill).svg Prayer Points for the bones it automatically buries.
  • Each tier of the Lucky Herb Potion I (item).svg Lucky Herb Potion now provides a extra flat +3 quantity of the grown herb.
  • Added padding to the bottom of the Bank to allow room for the Sell dropdown menu to display correctly and not get cut off.


  • Fixed issue where it was possible to loot an item multiple times when collecting from the loot container.
  • Fixed issue where Maximum Skillcape (item).svg Max Skillcape was not increasing Firemaking (skill).svg Firemaking Coal Ore (item).svg Coal chance to 100%.
  • Fixed rogue upgrade button for Earth Layered Shield (item).svg Earth Layered Shield.
  • Cooking (skill).svg Cooking stats now track offline progression.
  • Total Fish Cooking (skill).svg Cooked stat now correctly tracks correct quantity cooked, instead of assuming 1 is always cooked.
  • Fixed issue where Deadeye Amulet (item).svg Deadeye Amulet was activating 75% of the same, instead of the intended 25%.
  • God Dungeon Upgrades will now appear correctly in the Shop without requiring a refresh.
  • Guardian Amulet (item).svg Guardian Amulet now correctly resets the Damage Reduction upon defeating an enemy.
  • Fixed an issue where the Guardian Amulet (item).svg Guardian Amulet would reset if you changed equipment during a fight.
  • Fixed an issue where the quantity of herbs dropped via the Lucky Herb Potion I (item).svg Lucky Herb Potion was not affected by double loot chance items.
