Hmm, Jagex made a slight modification to the post...

For conscientious helpers, there will be buffing fruit and ecosystem seeds. For the persistent slayers, there is a chance of coming across the mysterious whip vine, which may sound incongruous but does wonders when attached to an abyssal whip (requiring 80 Slayer and 85 Attack to wield).


:blink:

Well, at least this month looks significantly better than June. Looking forward to the slug quest and cluefest. :)

Why does this month seem slightly... Tyranid related? They make the jadinkos out to be like them, and the slugs in the pictures look slightly like them as well. Weird.

I'd be pretty pissed if the new whip upgrade is any better than chaotics. Hell, even if it comes close, I'll be pissed. Somehow I doubt it will, though.

It requires 85 attack and 80 slayer. It should be better than a rapier at least.

Even if it's a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me. An infinitesimal change. And that infinitesimal change ripples outward-ever smaller but everlasting. I will get forgotten, but the stories will last. And so we all matter-maybe less than a lot, but always more than none.

I should think at the very best it'd equal them.
But more likely it'll just act as a bridge weapon better than the lvl 70 stuff (whips etc.) but not as good as the chaotics

Slug quest! Yay!

New jadinko area.... meh. Looks like the whip upgrade could be useful, but it better not eclipse the rapier in DPS.

Clan Citadels look pretty cool, and my brother and I already had our own small clan set up for lols purposes, so this looks like it could be kind of fu....

Contribute enough to the weekly upkeep of the citadel and you'll find you have access to a clan ring, which gives you a temporary 1.5x multiplier in certain skill tasks about RuneScape.

WHAT.

Why? You get a rapier for FREE from training a skill. A whip you either get for free from a drop or buy it. With 85 Attack and 80 Slayer as a requirement the upgraded whip should at least equal the rapier.

I think that would be [cabbage]. To get a rapier you need 80 dungeoneering, and you need to trade in all the tokens you've gained up to that point, and you have to repair it every 10 hours. Unless the vine drop is really rare and expensive, I don't think it should even come close to the strength of chaotic weapons. Otherwise, it would make all the time I've spent training dungeoneering for my rapier seem like a waste.

This will also give it the highest attack requirement for an overworld item. I'd guess that it'd be as least on par with the rapier, save that it won't be able to stab.

Because a rapier is degradable. Unless you want to argue that the upgraded Whip will be degradable as well, which would be utterly stupid.

The upgraded whip has more difficult reqs to fill than the rapier does. Doing 5:5's with DGS it took a week - max - to get from 68-80 DG... Nowadays it would probably take me 2 days to get the tokens for another chaotic even if I didn't nolife DG.

Tbh 12 slash attack and 20 strength would be a good addition to the whip.

IMHO 80 slayer and 85 attack takes longer to get than rapier. At any rate, the fact that it's a higher tier level attack weapon should show that it will probably rival the rapier which you only need 80 attack for...

The new whip will have a special attack and deal extra poison damage. Something tells me it won't have the stats of a chaotic rapier. Sounds more like it would have its own niche uses, instead of being a straight upgrade/downgrade of a CR.

What about the time it takes to get 1 dungeoneering to 80? Also, you have to trade in all the tokens you've obtained up to that point, essentially "spending" the experience you've gained. Level requirements don't always determine an item's usefulness.

Don't forget that once you've bought a rapier you can't sell it back. Those 200K tokens are gone forever.

GF Chaotics & it will have Poison & Special Attack.

I'm glad too see that the Whip is getting Updated. I don't like that it will do Poison so maybe there will be a cloth to clean it?

I like the Clan Citadels but not the 1.5x Ring :(

Slug quest finally. I wonder how the penguin quest will fare after we beat the queen. Or if they'll merge the story lines in this quest. Also might we get the sword that the smith from deadliest catch was making from this quest? wasn't she making one for sir tiffy, or was it one of the other knights?

Jadinko hunter area.
Sounds basically like a wood cutters version of lrc. But new stronger wip that also poisons sounds awsome.

Reserving judgement on the citadel till it comes out to see if this will negativly effect small clans.

Might start doing cryptic clues if they are going to start releasing up coming content hints in them now.

dwarven army axe sounds like a nice bank space saver... but how will an axe work as a needle :unsure:

Sounds like a decent month.

Looks to be another boring month

the only hope is clan citadels


Members will have the opportunity to obtain a new item this month, with the introduction of the Dwarven Army Axe. This tool, aimed at lower-level players, will be useful as a weapon, hatchet, pickaxe, needle, chisel, tinderbox and toothpick*. Details of how to obtain this will be given upon logging in.


OF COURSE IT IS

Yay yet another quest I can't do without training my summoning 44 lvls :S

I love how they can't think of a quest that does not need summoning.
