Shameless, token update which only serves as a segway into solomon's store.
07 FTW.


Have fun living in the past with No updates

Q: Dragon Breath just simply have a low chance to hit compared to every other ability. I have yet to miss a wrack on Barrow brothers since the last update, but my dragon breath only hits half the time. Having the Sonic blast cast before that doesn't improve its accuracy a great deal either. it seems there is an inherent inaccuracy with Dragon Breath.

It's been like that since EoC was released, I am surprised its still like that

You'll also notice something simlar when using the old flurry threshold for melee dual weild, the amount it misses is laughable.

Oh, in case anyone having the sky high jump teleport, it's currently bugged in such a way that during a home port, it looks like you have a very severe case of parkinson's disease inflicted through out your body

The problem with Dragon Breath is that it's a directional attack (similar to Cleave), and sometimes it's unable to hit the "effective square" that the opponent is covering, meaning that it "misses". Not the fault of its accuracy, rather how it works.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

Which is a problem, because I only use Dragon breath when standing diagonally from a monster, and it misses a lot.

I think you've figured out yourself how to fix your problem.

I never really noticed Dragonbreath missing often for me, but what you guys are saying seems to make sense. I have noticed that from certain angles it will only hit 1 target despite it being very close to another. In other instances if I change the angle, it will hit both targets.

Not exactly, because I prefer not to get hit by the monster I am trying to dragon breath, which is why I am going through the trouble of standing diagonally from him in the first place.

It's been confirmed already that they'd be having polls to decide which updates to add to 2007 servers.

Recently added weapons have had their accuracy value fixed.


From the patch notes, is this a nerf to Drygore?

Am I the only one to see that Jagex is using the tribute stone to see how many players are actively playing rs now that rs07 is out?

I don't think they need something like that to know how many players regularly log in.

its probably to tell more demographical stuff such as how often people log in after updates, how quickly they do the content, and what percentage are not botting etc.

Yeah, they can just look directly at who's logged in. I mean, we know they can do that, there's a counter on the website and everything.

They can already have such kinds of counters acting behind-the-scenes.

Ugh, I wish my screen was fullscreen and my actionbar was double as big. My bar is full already and I have no room for the new ranged ability other then exchanging it for another.

Pretty annoying, if Jagex wants to go like the rest of the MMO-world they should adapt.

How do you think they do that? Other than getting the butterflies, there is no way to tell whether or not players are participating in the event, and players are more likely to just stumble on the butterflies as they cover all the game.

You filled up all 5 of the action bars with all of the abilities?
