Jagex introduced this about 2 weeks ago I believe, and I'm not sure why. It basically means now, that when someone dies to a npc or random, the items they drop will not appear after 30 seconds. This hadn't affected me until today. I was kq'ing with a friend, and I died after I didn't notice my prayer go out, and was hit a 31 for the ko. So a second after I died I just thought that my friend would pick my stuff up so I wouldn't lose anything. But, shortly after I died he teled to lumby, and said that after I died nothing was dropped on the floor. Of course he couldn't pick the items up until 30 seconds after, and he wasn't sticking around with 3 sharks and barely any prayer left. So now I ask, how is this small update benefitting players exactly? Well you could say that if someones afk and they die then they can go and pick there items back up after they've died. But surely, 30 seconds isn't long enough to go to a bank get out a tele and walk to the place you have died. So now I finish this short rant on saying that, how is this update helping anybody?

First off, its 1 minute .

And thats time enough to get back to your corpse before looters.



Not always is there a friend out there to get ur items.



And its not Jagex fault that you died, and that your friend couldnt get your items. Its your own dumb self so just zip it.

You went a dangerous place and died.

You let your hp drop below 50 on KQ come on KQ!

I'm not complaining about dieing, and I know it was my own fault for dieing, I just want to know why jagex changed it from instant to 1 minute. It just makes things like daggonoth kings, kq and Kbd more dangerous now, as you can no longer get a friend to pick up your items easily, and therefore you end up taking less valued equipment like for instance replacing a glory with a str ammy.

It helps nobody; it's just another example of Jagex's half-wit thinking and appealing to the kids.

lets look at it this way:



Good reasons to not have that update-

1)Friends can pick up your stuff for you in crisis situations

2)if someone dies because they in a sense 'bit off more than they could

chew' (not refering to you) then we get some free stuff

3)gave more of a chalenge to the game



Good reasons to have the update-

1)allows you to get your stuff before looters



In my opinion this update was kinda pointless...but whats done is done unfortunately <.<
You dare question my eccentricities?

Actually, you wouldn't probably even have time to get the stuff unless you were near your respawn point-like lumby. But most people don't hang around lumby and die at the cows except for noobs. And yea Jagex, we can definataly get to the KQ from Lumby in just 1 minute!



I say this update was completely pointless.

Are you kidding? this update rules. Dharok'ing is alot safer now and death is no longer a total loss. And between teleports, balloons, jewlery ect I can't think of a place you couldn't get to in a minute (Not counting the wilderness or dungeons, but you should expect to loose stuff there anyways).



I love this update. It changes so much in a good way.



(I did recruitment drive awhile ago and those White Knights look like good place to train now....)

What if you're training somewhere far from a respawn point?

It's stupid imo it's just that the costumer support can't stand the mommies of the 8 year olds whining anymore.

well i see this update as a positive thing. Anything that makes the game harder or more dangerous can only be a good thing. I'm glad that there is an element of danger involved in going to the KQ or DK etc. It also makes dharoking pretty cool too for places like the giant mole as you can get your stuff back before any looters get there if your respawn point is fally.

I lost 20k deaths 70k fires soms chaos glory, wealth ahrims and some other stuff at metal dragons due to a graphic bug. My screen was a all blury but when i died it started to slowley get better. I went to bank quikly took teles and teled to ardy went to karamja in to the cave and when i finaly came to the dragons my stuff was gone and no one took it :? (Sure)

It doesnt stop looters, i myself found about 2m items in a 3 day span just ranging alone at tzhaars, people die, 1 minute isnt enough to get back really, unless your prepared and realise you might die...



Now i have Rune boots x7

Glory x8

Ring of wealth x4..



And more which i returned, but it doesnt work, 2 mins maybe ?

Obviously you have no clue how monster hunting works. It's a team effort meaning your friends can save your stuff. Now the update (which is supposed to make dieing safer) makes it HARDER for friends to save your stuff which just sucks.

GOOD.



Now people will actually have to risk something in those areas instead of always having a buddy pick up their guthans/veracs/whatever.

Omg what now there is actually a risk when you go monster hunting?



Seriously, now there is actual danger in going to these places. If you die, you should lose your items. To get great rewards, great risk is needed to balance it out. This is a good update so that it makes the game harder, even if people do not like it.

lol some people did that before, wielding a whip, plate, legs and nothing else. Then just kill knights until you die and respawn in the same place keep killing. problem is if you did wanted your white knight rank will be like -3000 lol.



imo it is a bad update, maybe they should have an update where you can add someone to a list that will see your items as soon as you die.

Some high-lvls had been complaining of the game being far too easy, risk-free, noob-catering, etc.



Guess what though? Those "noobs" now have more opportunity to get items back in a ever-so-slightly more forgiving death situation, and high lvls in dangerous places now have more fun, exhilarating danger to face.



That's my take on it. It helps both low lvls who might need a more-forgiving system of death, and high lvls who need more fun out of the game.

I was going to say the same thing as Adventurer, but he beat me to it.

In summary; it made things harder where they need to be hard and easier where they need to be easy. I don't see where this update failed. All I see is lazy kiddies whining "Now I gotta replace what I lost to the boss monster who is now as risky to fight as it was meant to be! Waah!"
