01-Jun-2011 - Behind the Scenes - June

Eager to try out a new item slot? Forget rings, quivers or shoe slots: if you’re fashionable you’ll want an aura slot! Before the release of these buffing items, there’ll be two other updates in which you’ll have to overcome some imposing obstacles: a sea monster in our newest master quest, and a troll invasion in a new distraction and diversion.

Deadliest Catch (members)

This month’s master quest will ring bells for anyone interested in the guaranteed content polls. As named by you, the sea monster Thalassus has been terrorising the cold and inhospitable oceans to the north. No one has survived to sketch a picture of this hulking beast, but the inns are full of rumours: Thalassus is the size of the Wizards’ Tower, they say; sailors are eaten and digested while still alive in its belly.

Fisherman Jones wants to end the scare stories by landing the beast (gaining a little glory in the process). To join him, you’ll need a Fishing level of 70, a Hunter level of 67 and a Thieving level of 60, and there’s wieldable fishing nets on offer, and a range of bank deposit boxes to unlock if you do. The quest also offers you the opportunity to embark ten more times for additional Hunter XP, should you prove to be an enviable harpooner.

Troll Invasion (members)

Forget forum trolls: if you want a real nuisance, you can’t beat the real thing! Trolls are swarming down the hills of Burthorpe and are threatening to lay waste to any imperial guard that gets in their way. Who can stop them? Well, you, of course, but in two very different ways. This month’s single-player distraction and diversion allows you to choose between taking the trolls on in straight combat, or tending the defences that hold them back. Better still, there are no requirements to do so.

Take to the battlefield and you will face 20 waves of increasingly belligerent trolls, from the common mountain troll to the summoning troll, dynamite troll and Cliff, who – you’ve probably guessed – ate an entire cliff face for his first meal. If that proves too easy, there’s a more intense 7 wave version to conquer, which has an increased difficulty level.

For the skill-focussed among you, there is the option of keeping the gatehouse maintained instead. Tend to the ballista, top up the oil vats and repair broken barricades to keep the trolls from being successful. Your actions will increase the morale of the troops, who will fight back with increased vigour. Hold out for 10 minutes (the time it takes for a troll to get hungry for Burntmeat’s cooking) and the victory is yours. You will gain an XP tome for your first defence each month, and smaller XP rewards for any defence you complete after that.

Loyalty Rewards (members)

Last but not least, this month sees a huge selection of exciting rewards that you’ll be able to access through the Members Loyalty Program. Earn Loyalty Points to unlock a fantastic range of items, from custom titles to unique emotes, exclusive new costumes and amazing auras in a new player worn slot.

Have fun!

Eh...loyalty rewards? If this is something you earn by doing something in-game, that's okay...But [bleep] if I'm expected to fork out money to obtain these 'loyalty points'...Then wow.

So the new equipment slot is cosmetic only, and only for "loyal" members?

Was excited when I saw the new item slot, but now to get items for this slot you have to be a loyal member?

More uber items for people who think they are good for playing for 10 years :thumbdown: ?
Or even worse, items for paying more money.


I'm seeing j-coins being used to buy emotes and new items here -.-
Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

loyalty points sounds alot like micro transactions to me... lame

i wish they would have went with that RSA token thing to access your account..remember when they were offering more bank space if you bought one?

all the poor babys with no cash ruined it.

Hmm, I won't be happy if they're non cosmetic AND you have to pay to get them, would be a step towards a game I wouldn't want to play.

If they're earnt by in game hours/certain achievements that would be ok though (as things like the completionist cape require a long time in game for great stats already)

If we need to pay for ingame items (like with flagstaff but on a larger scale) I think I'm not renewing 3/4 of my memberships.

Keeping main, cancelling pures...

Hmm..a bit unexpected. I wonder what/where exactly this slot is; it seems a bit like TF2 to me. Maybe there will be a leaked pic on the knowledge base.
