Or you could open your eyes and check the option in the interface that disables the achievement popups

*shrug*


Yeah, because a 5 pixel X 5 pixel square with no labeling hidden away in the bottom left corner of a menu that you have open yourself is really that easy to find. :rolleyes:


Pixel sizes are a guess and yes I'm being sarcastic.

Thanks, i was looking for the so called "turn off popups" button and coundn't find it anywhere. They could have atleast put some words by it.

OK I been playing for quite a few hours now and gaining smithing xp but my new bar on stat icon for goal hasnt changed.

Doesnt seem to be updating to me. Completely red lined. Unless you need a huge amount for it to jump along at stages.

So for me atleast it doesnt seem to work correctly. This is a goal over 99. :cry:

I mean I do presume that that red bar is meant to show progress.. Presumably meant to turn green.

edit: mine has gone green a bit at last, but it seemed do it when logged and came back on.. idk maybe glitch.

I found it the first time I was checking the interface. :blink:
But yeah, at least they added one.

I'm a little disappointed over how they did the thanksgiving event. The massive turkey invasion would have been a lot better as re-usable content in my opinion.

i think this update is good way to help new players.

I kinda got scared when i saw a bunch of text spam when i logged in.

The pop ups reminded me of the achievements on major gaming systems.


i am a quest cape person so i went to lumby to collect my reward i thought it was gonna suck

nope free 600k+ hey im happy free money but could this cause problems later on?

checking some data people gave here, they're giving 2k per task, that seems somewhat extreme for tasks like "congratulations, you just moved by running"

Imagine this for lower level players, though. Newbies starting the game would find that sort of money invaluable!

i'm not saying it's bad, but 2k just for running seems unbalanced. It may be a way for jagex to try make items more accesible for new players, but i feel this can only cause more inflation.

EDIT: just realized i'm wrong, each task gives different amounts of money, running gives 640 gp. Though iI still think it's a lot just for running.

Yeah, 2.6k for mining a piece of tin. I remember having to actually work for my first money. And when I went and talked to explorer jack I got nearly 400k for tasks I've already completed...

Depends on if we want the game that easy for noobs or not.

I remember getting my first 2k after cutting a bunch of willow logs. The hard manly way.

Sick of this babying jagex is doing to new players..

Ahhh, I remember standing around world 2 for hours trying to get the armor I wanted. Now I can just go buy them within a few seconds.

Good old days. :thumbup:

You mean newbies? Well when you're at a low level even if you have that sort of money it's unlikely there's gonna be *very* much use for it yet. It's just a nice start, I think, saves them from running around asking for geepees.

Mixed emotions for this part of the update.

(Rant rant rant below)

Tasks. It's rather pretty, but there seems to be a lot of clicking just to search and find out information about one task, making it a tad confusing. Granted, there is a fair bit more information once you click on the task, and I like the feature where they display what the requirements are for that specific task. They probably should separate the corresponding diary tasks more clearly; I can't tell which ones are which. And there are SO MANY TASKS (and a few are just random). :blink:

It's not all bad though, because I actually now have the urge to go do these tasks. And the new emote for completing all of them is HOT. DO WANT. :ohnoes:

Skill targets. It's a lot more friendly than the Objectives system in terms of setting goals, which I'm going to like a lot. However that text size is ungodly small compared to before. That's going to hurt the eyes of a few; even I can't see it very well. Hopefully they'll make it bigger. :shock:

Oh, and now that they've removed that tab where objectives once went, I always have the urge to click it now...It's so inviting! :mad: (I wonder what's going to go there in the future...)

tl;dr version: Great concepts, meh execution.

I use noob and newbie interchangeably. I use idiot for what some people call "noob". Its a more fitting title.

Hooray, newbies! Jagex should start making it harder for new players, and the video game equivalent of natural selection would prevent a good percentage of idiots from playing
Also, of course newbies would find it invaluable; the OP already said that the reward was too high

The amount of money you get as a reward is on a sliding scale based on your number of tasks completed it seems. If you have a new account, you only get 10 coins for completing a task.

I can't seem to unlock the "Am I a Blademaster Yet?" task. I've killed a rat using all four combat styles, and I've even repeated it several times, to no avail. Is the task b0rked?
