11-Feb-2010 - RuneScape Q&A - Content Team

Recommended Posts

The next round of Q&A responses come from Mod Fetzki, the Head of RuneScape, and other members of the RuneScape Content Team, including Paul Gower.

 

The questions answered in this batch deal with the RuneScape game, what updates we have planned, and the choices that we have made about RuneScape's future. We’ve posted the questions and answers on this forum thread, so you can discuss the answers.

 

Mod Fetzki and Paul's live Q&A session will be held on the forums today, starting at 5pm (GMT). Players will be able to post questions in this thread; answers will be posted in this thread.

 

The RuneScape Content Team received a lot of questions, as you could probably imagine, so to make sure we get to answer as many as possible, we are also planning to publish a second batch of answers next week.

From what i've read so far, I think its safe to say the new skill will be non-combat, and could possibly be a character development skill.

 

Discuss.

new skill requires skill in combat? Sounds great.

New Skill Observations from Content QA

 

Skill release date:

* Not this month

* Closer to middle of the year than the end

 

skill requirements/usage

* will not effect Combat Lvl

* training the skill will include aspects of most current skills

* aspects of the skill will be useful in PvP (PvE?)

* the new skill DOES take you beyond the current free map

I was late getting back to my computer, Demby you might want to hide tag the questions, it's quite the scroll-down! they've revealed info on skill eg no money required (WOOT) so I'm happy, I hope there's some tasty questions!

 

Will there be a new high-level dungeon this year? And can we have some more hints about the new skill?

 

Gun Masters1

 

Yes, there will be high-level dungeons being launched this year.

 

Will be there any new dragon armour/weapons coming out?

 

lew neal960

 

None currently planned; we are looking at higher levels at the moment.

yeah just get rid of all the text and post a qfc or something

also

I cannot say it has nothing to do with boats because a ship is featuring in it quite prominently, but I can repeat that it is not Sailing or anything like that. The skill doesn't start with a ‘B’. It won't be expensive.

 

varrock museum boat?

 

2. Do you plan on telling players what the new skill is before it comes out?

 

2. No.

 

i quite enjoyed the build up and teasers to summoning :(

Oh, I'm quite the opposite. I loved it when they only mentioned Construction with "Teletabs and chairs you can sit on!".

Took a while to read that, I've half forgotten some of my points. Let me think, F2P updates (new weapon, skill, boss) sound exciting and I am definitely looking forwards to them. The new skill in particular, takes us beyond the current map and not requiring money, some sort of exploring/dungeon crawl imo. The amount of answers saying "we can't tell you but you'll love it" weren't as high a % as I expected, but still quite a few. I've gotta say that they revealed more than I expected. Well done Content Team <3

I agree with you, nothing like being caught and the overwhelming thing of having 10 mins on update counter to read up on skill and actually do it, where-as summoning overhyped and Jagex had to come out with several posts saying what it is meant to do :P

Jesus Christ 90% of them ask the same [bleep]ing question. They should come up with more original questions tso we get more information then "What is the new skill","when is it coming out", and "will it be a money sink". Hell I could;ve answered 90% of the questions.

Some people annoy me.

MY god people are stupid.

 

"Tell us what the new skill is"

 

"No"

 

Repeat Ad Nauseum.

 

I think they should just ignore any questions on the skill and focus on some real issues in the game.

3. Pures have their legitimate place in RuneScape and we don't think we should limit how people can choose to level. It is against every mechanic that RuneScape has.

 

people have waited years to hear this

Now the already-arrogant few are gonna get more arrogant. Onoes!

When can we expect the new skill? What is it? Any hints? Can you confirm it has nothing to do with boats? Can you confirm it doesn't begin with a ‘B’? Necromancy? Archaeology? Can you say anything about those two things? Can you say whether it will be expensive, fast or slow XP, or anything of the sort?

I wish jagex would skip skill questions, in the words of Mr Garisson "there are no stupid questions, just stupid people" and I have questions that have been getting dodged for a while now I want answering (Page-8, please reach that far :P)

I do wish they wouldn't answer the same questions repeatedly. If you answered that the skill is coming out towards the middle of the year don't answer another question asking almost the exact same thing. :rolleyes:

These Q&A sessions are almost unreadable because of the idiots asking the same inane questions over and over again. I'd rather they just answer 5-10 pertinent questions than this.

Interesting Q&A, they made a pretty good stand against high lvl F2P content and clearly stated that members pay their wages and are more deserving of high level updates.

My solution is to censor the word strand of "New Skill" which will be "*** *****"
