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?

Not sure if you already did, but try killing four rats, each with a different style, at the lumbridge swamp.

That worked for me

I can't finish Morgan the Merrier. I have the clay ring but I don't have the option to sell it to him.

Yay, that worked! Thanks for your help. :)

I was killing the rats in the castle, which didn't work for some reason.

edit: Another strange thing: the task did not disappear from my task panel until I logged out and back in. It seems that the new task system is a bit buggy.

1. Make sure you're killing GIANT rats... it didn't count when I killed the tiny ones. Go kill them in Lumbridge swamp.
2. Don't change your attack style until after the rat has disappeared. If you kill it on accurate but switch to aggressive before its death animation is complete, it counts as an aggressive kill.

For the rat task, the "controlled" option does NOT work on scimitars and maces... just a heads up.

Also, a lot of these tasks are too overly easy... and ultimately pointless. But at least the ability to do certain Varrock/Falador tasks in f2p is nice.

I actually had some fun doing these. :D

Plus hey, something to look forward to for completing ALL the diaries. Shame there's no way I'll be able to do that in the near future. :lol: Oh well. I honestly like this style better, even though it feels a bit too much like WoW for me with the little window popping up. I still love it though! :D

How do you mean?

Are you talking about the tasks that used to be in the elite diaries?

If you get more than 100 gp from a task, you get a free task completed message.

That was fun. I don't normally play but doing the free Lumbridge tasks that just came out got me all excited. Plus the free money wasn't a push over either. :P

Odd, I did it with a dragon scimitar and it worked. Just make sure you wait for the (giant) rat to disappear completely before switching styles.

I don't understand your gripe with this, really. I'm assuming you're being sardonic by that statement.

The old Elite tasks are still in the new task system, so there's definite content for high levels, but they've integrated those with the old Lumbridge Guide/Objectives systems that were designed to educate new players on the game's basics concepts (like, mining ores to smelt weapons, using weapons to gain resources, using resources to train skills). They've put it all together into one slick new system.

I can understand it's annoying for high levels to be engaging in tasks which appear menial, and they could maybe have put in a system so they didn't have to, but I wouldn't draw any generalisations on how Jagex are 'basing the game now' from this update.

There's something for everyone, which frankly, is how an RPG should be.

I totally dont get this update at all.

Its kinda cool to do something completely random like putting on a weapon and getting "AHCIEVMMENTT UNLOCKKEEDDD" (as if its some sort of achievement...).

Well, running and using the minimap to move is some kind of achievement.


Anyway, I'm waiting for the Hard and elite Misc tasks to be released, currently, there's only beginner achievements.

Proud owner of the following skillcapes: Defence, Hitpoints, Strength, Attack, Magic, Summoning, Ranged, Slayer, Prayer and Herblore.
I drift in and out, trying some update that interests me.

Yes, it certainly makes the game feel cooler, but the old achievements were in my opinion better. Though this "Achievement Unlocked"- like update thing is certainly nice to get :D.
