  1. An update I'm actually happy to see.
  2. Based on what you've said and my own observations, Jagex isn't dying but one of their products, Runescape certainly is. While their profits have soared greatly, this is due to weekly SoF and Solomon promotions (I'm a sucker for promotions, have spent a few hundred € over the past year) - not the number of membership players there are. Worlds that were popular two or three years ago are struggling to survive, they cut down a portion of the worlds recently as a result. I do miss what it was a few years ago, seeing so many familiar faces on a daily basis (Remember w99?), but now standing in popular worlds like 24 you're met with a small handful of people.. Nothing like even just a year ago. It sucks. I don't want it to, but it does.
  3. Land of Leprechauns? I've never heard of such a place! Sure if you end up going I may just see you there. :)
  4. Rather interested in going to it this year as I'm finding it harder and harder to keep motivation to play, may lose it altogether come next year. Pity I don't know anyone else going (That lives in Éire).
  5. This always happens, not a security risk for myself though; I find it to be more of a convenience!
  6. It's been three years since our last skill, I don't think it's just for the "sake" of it. It's about time, really. I'm definitely more in favour of a skill than adapting storylines, but to each their own.
  7. anywhere you'd use void, you still use void. Anywhere you'd use nex (tanking nex/kk, dks?), pop armor is only slightly worse. This. Though it's completely unfair that Nex has a bonus while PoP does not, that bonus is quite small. Only the most dogmatic nitpickers would say that PoP is substantially worse. Also, that update next week, despite speculations that it will screw over PoP, has not yet happened. So there's still a chance or two. Eh I suppose it's possible I missed something but where is the news on this update? Sadly I'm still quite a ways away from Superior Tetsu. I've made the legs and have 73 plate, my last 10 plate voyage failed. Going a week at a time without any plate voyages is infuriating.
  8. Yeah, I see 25 from the Missionary another 25 from the Convict and 50 from a trio. Sadly I don't have 90 Thieving thus it's not possible to obtain the rest. I've finished the Whaler's so got his 25 plate. I made the mistake of purchasing the Jade status to increase trade goods per voyage, pity I didn't do a little more research beforehand. It's a 1% increase which apparently only effects one 100 spice voyage as it's rounded down. :/
  9. Hey guys! Right so I hit the Pincer region there about a week or two ago, so good so far. For my ship I've only got the Ram/Figurehead to upgrade and the Blazing Lantern hull. I haven't begun upgrading crew yet and have the voyage to unlock the Oxhead in my list waiting to be done. Right now my only interest is Tetsu, I've completed the scrolls and currently have 66 Plate. How should I go about acquiring 200? I've been going days at a time without the Whaler and even when he's there, the mission is 5-10 plate. I did have a 25 plate mission from the Missionary, not sure if that was finishing off his story-line though. As far as upgrading the port goes, everything is pretty basic and I haven't done much work on my buildings. Should I work on my story lines for rewards or what? It's pretty demotivating at the moment as everything appears to be so slow. I'd much appreciate a push in the right direction!
  10. So I hit 90 fishing today, giving me access to the Whaler. I was expecting the option to build the Icon Hotspot relevant to him but it's not listed - any ideas?
  11. They've done this multiple times in the past with different phrases.
  12. I'm afraid it's nothing about acting tough, and this isn't just a "mistake". The mistake would've been getting muted, you didn't need to escalate the issue by recording it and turning it into a drama scene.
  13. It is rather sad, seems a bit desperate for attention. One couldn't just keep their thoughts to themselves for a few days, no?
  14. The RuneScape Bestiary (free players and members) This week, we're really excited to give you a glimpse at the next generation of RuneScape. We've created a new feature for the RuneScape website which lets you browse almost 3,000 of RuneScape's monsters and NPCs: the RuneScape Bestiary. Each one is viewable in full 3D using our new HTML5 graphics engine - RuneTek 7 - which you'll be seeing much more of once we launch it for RuneScape later in the year. You can rotate, zoom and animate all of the available characters, share your favourites on Facebook, search for specific ones and view a variety of information about each of them, including: Combat levels Combat weaknesses Life points Slayer category Where they can be found in-game. As this is our very first reveal of this technology to the community, we're running the Bestiary as a beta. This means that you may experience crashes or other odd behaviour while you're using it. We'll be collecting error reports and usage statistics to help us make the technology stable and ready for the full release, but we need your help too. Send us bug reports when you experience issues using the Bestiary, and - as always - give us your feedback on the forums. This is the first glimpse of the awesome upgrades coming within RuneScape which include upgraded graphics and draw distances, a smoother play experience, an amazing new top-level interface and - in the long run - compatibility with touch-screen devices. Now's the time to start getting your voice heard so we can make the new RuneScape the game that you want to see! Have fun, and look out for an early-access beta of the new RuneScape graphics engine in the next few months. The RuneScape Team How to access the RuneScape Bestiary: You can try out the beta version of the RuneScape Bestiary here. Requirements: To use the Bestiary, you will need to be running a recent version of Google's Chrome web browser. We're working on getting the Bestiary working with other browsers, but - at the moment - Chrome is the only browser with the full support for HTML5 that the Bestiary needs. Chrome's already the most popular browser among RuneScape players, so you may well have it installed already. If not, you can get the latest version here. With an up-to-date version of Chrome installed, we've found that the Bestiary works nicely on the following operating systems: Windows: XP, Vista, 7 and 8 Mac OSX Linux Android 4.0 and above* *For now, you'll need to download the beta version of Chrome for Android to get the Bestiary working. See our FAQ for details of how to do this. Unfortunately, Chrome on iOS does not support the technology we require. As such, it's not possible to view the Bestiary on an iPad or iPhone at this time. See our FAQ if you have any other questions or concerns. Behind the Scenes Video Take a look at our latest Behind the Scenes video: In Other News A certain resident of Rellekka has been out of sorts lately. Why not head over there and see if you can help out? There's an intriguing archaeological dig happening near the Legends' Guild. Head on over and take a look! In response to your feedback, we've changed two low-population worlds into skill total worlds. From now on, the worlds listed below will only be accessible to RuneScape members with the corresponding total skill levels: World 30: 2000 World 48: 2400 [*]We have also labelled World 134 as a gathering place for those wishing to take part in theSinkholes D&D. [*]Sinkholes will now appear in the world more frequently: once per hour, rather then once every two hours. The patch notes archive can be seen here. Discuss this here.
  15. I would really love to know what happened, Luke was a very nice guy.
  16. My original name was my first name and the city in which I live. Changed to "Newb" afterwards because it's awesome. Now I'm just Carl.
  17. Our latest Task Set - based around the Kharidian Desert, as per your feedback - is now available for all members! Eagle-dive into hay carts, fly on magic carpets and dominate the Dominion Tower to reap the treasures of the desert, including XP lamps, an upgradeable amulet, a daily supply of potato cacti, and much more! Desert Tasks (members only) It's Task time once again, and - in accordance with your feedback - our latest set is based in the sand-blasted splendour of the Kharidian Desert. For old-school veterans of the Achievement Diaries, this is a chance to add a new piece to your hard-earned Task gear collection and rack up some indispensable high-level rewards. For newer players, it's also a golden opportunity to discover the amazing content out there in Gielinor's arid lands, while picking up some sweet rewards in the process. The 43 new Tasks are split into Easy, Medium, Hard and Elite categories, and encompass the full breadth of the desert's adventuring prospects. The Tasks range from such humble undertakings as catching a golden warbler or dancing with the troubadours outside the Citharede Abbey, right up to heroic feats such as completing every achievement within the Dominion Tower, or slaying a desert strykewyrm while equipped with a fully charged slayer helm and ancient staff. Completing the Easy Tasks will earn you the Desert Amulet, which is upgraded with each consecutive tier of Tasks that you complete. Each upgrade increases the amulet's stats, and also adds handy functions to it. These include reduced failure on the Agility Pyramid; unlimited teleports to Nardah; and the ability to create a quota of molten glass each day only from soda ash, as long as you're within the desert. There's a ton of rewards to be had beside the amulet, too, all of which apply permanently when you've completed the requisite tier of Tasks. These include discounts at the Mage Training Arena's pizazz store; access to an additional teak tree and sandstone rock; the opportunity to upgrade the stats of your ancient staff; and a free, daily supply of potato cacti. Last, but not least, you'll get lamps full of glorious XP with each tier that you complete - up to a whopping 160,000 XP for the Elite tier! So - dust off your desert gear, top up your waterskin and bask in the oasis of Task-finishing fulfilment. We'd love to hear your ideas for future Task Sets, so head on over to the Suggestions Forum and let us know! Mod Maz Queen of Squirrels How to start the Desert Task Set: Access the Noticeboard. Then, select the Achievements heading, followed by 'Desert' in the drop-down box at the top-left of the interface. Through this, you can see what you need to do for each Task, and where to claim your rewards once you have completed the sets. Requirements: You must be a RuneScape member. In Other News: Grab one of our Abduction Teleports before it grabs you, over at Solomon's General Store! Yelps is hosting a Summoning extravaganza on the Squeal of Fortune this weekend. Keep an eye out for further details! The rug merchants in the desert now offer a new "fast travel" option, which instantly delivers you to your chosen magic carpet destination, albeit at 5 times the standard cost of the journey. The Recruit-a-Friend system now uses Bonus XP scrolls, which are stackable and can be activated whenever you choose. Diango has introduced a new way of retrieving your previously claimed holiday items, through an easy-to-use interface. Take a look here for full details. Several monsters have had their Defence lowered, so they can be hit more consistently, including steel dragons and dark beasts.
  18. I'm in need of some advice. I've got the very basic port upgrades and only two ships. My progress and other images thus far: 45% through the Scythe region, also. Is this good/bad? How should I proceed? I also have all ship upgrades that you can obtain before the Bowl region, apart from the rams/figureheads you can purchase with Cherrywood.
  19. I bought the gold package last night. Had purchased 800 RuneCoins yesterday morning already. I'm quite satisfied with it. It's a pity that the new Bloodpouncer pet doesn't come in the bundle, though. I'll have to purchase a card later for that one.
  20. I'd just like to say, this is my favourite update in a long time.
  21. Suffocate because those are the ad bots, most likely. They're dying because they lost control of their voice?
