Better in fullscreen/720/1080p but its Cliff on hard not that.. hard really :P

 

Seems his ranged attack is more "dangerous" in ahrd as the 3 rocks bounce in to the centre (eg where u were when he fired) opposed to just landing in the triangle as they do on easy

Jagex, if you're going to have more custom interfaces, please think about them, reuse them, and make some standards instead of making them from scratch each time. It saves development time and lets you get on with putting out bigger, better, and smoother updates. This is becoming a pattern and a problem.

 

That little screen that gives you 'information' on trolls you select doesn't give you anything that their appearance, name, examine info and what you're told by the Captain doesn't give you already, so it was useless. Everyone knows what wizards, rangers, summoners, warriors and troll generals are, Dynamite, the Troll Father, and Poorly Cooked Karambwan are all thankfully obvious, and Cliff is a boss you're supposed to figure out (answer: think Jad). Jagex really should trust in their talented model designers more.

 

The wave counter could have been a reskin of the Fight Caves one, but in troll grey. In fact, make it the standard for 'wave counters'.

 

This was a solid update, but I can't help but get annoyed when other updates this month have suffered due to inefficient use of development time.

He's big and tough, and came down from the mountain to drink milk and kick butt...and he's all outta milk.

 

Duke nukem reference.

I did the "repair the castle" version of the game instead.

 

Killed 750 trolls, put my reward into a lvl97 skill and got 37,260xp for it. Not bad for 10 minutes work, though not as lucrative as the circus.

I messed up, started the repair thing instead of the fight thing and quit. I'm annoyed I lost that xp but I guess more people did so I'll just pretend I got kicked out on a server restart and try again next month. I got 507 rc xp for not doing anything for 30 seconds, by the way.

 

First did the 20 wave fight up to wave 19 then had dinner, then did the 7 wave hard after which was faster and just as hard really. With the supply table you have 10 claw specs per wave and they all have really low health and defence. Iron titan chewed them all up, even on Cliff.

 

In short, really boring D&D I'll be doing for xp only.

Unlike other exp rewarding things you get, these reward books can be banked:

bankedrewardbook.png

 

Start saving up for a few years, then have one day of tons of exp?

 

 

Edit: Btw, completed all 20 waves, got 55904 exp for a level 84 skill (which leveled me up to 85 (yay agility)).


99 HP, Attack, Strength, Defence, Summoning, Ranged, Herblore, Prayer, Agility, Magic, Slayer, Fletching, Fishing, Woodcutting, Mining, and Thieving.

 

Jagex'd out of my untrimmed hp cape on 6/14/2011.

If claws looked like this, I would wear them a hell of a lot more often. Please change them jagex, please. If you throw in a pair of duel-wielded nunchuks for £2 on my credit card...no way I won't buy.

Most fun I've ever had getting 31k rc exp, for sure.

It was overeasy with overloads and turmoil. Still, it was fun and good exp. Definetly going to do that every month to get more runecrafting experience.

Some notes:

Mountain Troll: Default melee troll

Troll Ranger: Default troll ranger. Will occasionally pick up a large rock and hurl it. After ~2 seconds it will hit the spot where you were standing for large amounts of damage

Troll Mage: Default troll mage. Can "telegrab" you, and spawn an aoe on the ground that resembles a tanglevine. No idea what standing in it does.

Troll Summoner: Mediocre damage, but summons familiar(s) to aid it. No idea if it summons multiple familiars as it dies quickly

Troll General: Low defense, very high damage. Melee

Poorly Cooked Karambwan: Probably the most annoying troll. It is nonaggressive, but if you fight it whenever you cough, your stats will lower by 1. Recommend safespotting with ranged attacks

Dynamite: Will attempt to explode on you for high damage

Troll Father: Summons 3 Troll Grunts to aid him. You must kill the father first or he will heal the grunts.

Cliff: Does a rock toss which is easily avoided. Can telegrab you like Troll Mages. Default attack is melee, will occasionally mage.

 

Edit: Probably the most important thing that I forgot to mention is that if you attempt to go too far up Death Plateau you will receive a warning about the troll defenses and take LARGE amounts of damage. You'll need to LoS any trolls that spawn in this area.

 

I received ~67k exp at level 92 after clearing 20 waves on easy.

Spent way too much time on this(~20 mins, instead of just letting excel do all the work in the first place) but the xp formula is:

 

xp = 8* (level^2 - (2*level) + 100)

 

Alot like the effigy formula, but squared instead of cubed.

 

Generally, looks like a decent D&D- takes little time, monthly and decent xp.


First to 99 Farming on 27. September, 2005.

First to 3766 Port Score on 20. March, 2014.

First to 4664 Port Score on 2. March, 2015.

The invasion is going pretty well. I should know I'm running the show.

 

Very terrible jokes aside, I sort of went overkill on this. I'm guessing a tortoise full of brews/super restores along with two super sets and claws wasn't needed after all.

 

All you need is a pair of Guthans and some decent armour...

The tanglevine damages you if you stand in it.

51,992 Agility experience at level 81 for completing the 20 waves.

 

I noticed the guy who replenishes the supply table started to get scared and teleport before dropping off the supplies around wave 15.

Don't let the Poorly Cooked Karambwan or Dynamite near the potion table. Otherwise good bye potion for the remainder of the fight. =P

 

Maybe I'm weird but I found the Hard waves easier than the Easy waves. :mellow:

Saw the potion table getting blown apart, didn't knew the troll could do that. Didn't brought food nor pots, but survived till the end of the 19th. ^^ Is quite fun, and it's been since A clockwork Syringe I say that about an update.

Someone lied to me and told me that taking from the supply table loses you XP, but I learned that was false. Either way, very easy to do even without supply table. Only had to use about half my Inv of rocktails, but that's mainly because I was testing out my new Soulsplit/Turmoil :P

Well most, if not all, of Duke Nukem's quotes are more or less stolen from elsewhere.

The 3rd tier duelist hat no longer transforms into the 2nd tier hat when performing the emote.

Nice! :)

It also now does the 4th tier emote. :thumbsup:
