[9-7-2013] Bringing Home the Bacon

Recommended Posts

  • The level requirement to use ammo with certain Ranged weapons has now been removed. Damage will now cap at the lowest level between the bow and the ammo.

Has anyone tried playing around with this yet? It says "certain weapons"....so does that mean I can use momentum with royal bolts with my ccb/runecb combo now or is it restricted to unique (read:useless/obscure) weapons? And if that's the case, does it count as rune bolts for both or just the offhand's ammo?

 

Quest was ok, rewards are pretty crappy though. Kinda expected more out of the familiars, and bacon is just annoying to deal with due to that stacking. Will say that I like the pie, a +5 to farm/summ is pretty nice. Too bad I already leveled enough to be able to use stranger plant/garden pie for anything I need now.

Stev said using Ascension crossbow and OH chaotic crossbow nerfed the t90 ammo to t80. So I assume in your case it would nerf the lot to rune bolts.

It only nerfs it down to t50 damage on the rune crossbow, your ccb will still get t80 damage.

Works as if you wielded a chaotic claw and offhand rune dagger, for instance.

Waterbirth and BA armors being made into power armor are the best parts of this update in my opinion. I'm surprised they listened and implemented it. Back to grinding ports skills in anticipation of the yet again unmentioned ports update...

Wonder if BA being power armour will rekindle the game a bit *looks at non-maxed collector role*

By as soon as I log in I meant when I get a chance to play

 

That's exactly what I was replying to. Sure, there is a chance that there is nothing wrong with a low-level oriented, extra short quest. But recent updates have shown it is best to stay away from new content as far as possible (even avoiding to log in on the day of update).

Well, to each his own. I haven't had any problems with much of any release content that I've done, so I'll still be claiming my cape back today.

Suppose it depends. Aren't they lvl 50? And I forgot what lvl the fremmy armor is, if it's similar, then I doubt it.

 

Boredom, attacking dummies:

 

ccb+runecb: 867 + 289 = 1156

Crits w/ piercing shot (125%): 1449-1511 = 1159-1208

 

Rcb: 1936 = ~1277? (average speed is damage * 0.66, right?)

Crits w/ piercing shot (125%): 1643-1688 = 1314-1350

 

Figured they'd fix the ammo bit soon, just thought it would take them longer than this.

No, because Rock-shell/Spined/Skeletal armours are better in every aspect.

Yeah, I really have to wonder what the devs were thinking when they said "Let's stat Penance gear as level 40!!!" -.-

I've completed the quest, was quite fun but a little time consuming for some of the basic tasks you were asked to do.

 

I've got 14 mounds of bacon sitting in my back as well. Overall good quest and seems like it works fine on day 1.

A while ago (couple of weeks tops) Barbarian Assault was going smoothly, no problem at all, on world 6.

 

Anyway BA armour really should be better, considering it takes as long as one regular void set to get (roughly, counting Penance gloves/boots/skirt/top/helm). The prayer restore thing is pretty bad, it'd be nicer if it was t55 or upgradeable like elite void/master penance trident.

Fremennik armors are cool. I'm glad they're somewhat useful now.

Glutton for Nourishment

 

Glutton for Nourishment Released 9th July 2013 Length 3:27 Members Yes Requirements Bringing Home the Bacon Location None Hint Unknown [Edit] Composer David Osborne

Unlocked for completing the Bringing Home the Bacon quest.

Edit SectionLyrics

 

When I swing through town

In my bacon gown

I'm Notorious P.I.G.

I'm a snouted stallion

With a pork medallion

And an onion ring or three

Never be afraid of what they'll say

Dance in your pig suit every day

There's joy inside a bacon duffle

And a great big pocket to hold your truffles

I got the swill

to pay the bills

On the decks you'll see pork scratching.

I mince to the beat

in my tailored meat

Like swine flu, the tune is catching.

Never be afraid of what they'll say

Dance in your pig suit every day

There's joy inside a bacon duffle

And a great big pocket to hold your truffles

When life's getting rough

Chow down on a truff'

I need no encouragement.

I'm the king of the banquet

In a bacon blanket,

A glutton for nourishment.

Never be afraid of what they'll say

Dance in your pig suit every day

There's joy inside a bacon duffle

And a great big pocket to hold your truffles

It's understandable

To have a wet mandible

When I'm wiggling my hind.

It's clear from this song

There ain't nothing wrong

With a coat of bacon rind.

Never be afraid of what they'll say

Dance in your pig suit every day

There's joy inside a bacon duffle

And a great big pocket to hold your truffles

I have to see this to believe this. (and will see about that tomorrow, screens coming up)

 

I just hope EoC did not change BA so much that my skills would become useless.

Mask of Dust → Helm of Devilry: Dust devils

Mask of Gelatin → Jellyhead: Jelly

Mask of Granite → Helm of Grotesquery: Gargoyles

Edit: Found the last helm.

It's nice to finally see runescape content for once instead of wowscape.

I'll login for this as the last two months have been loyalty point months.

OR Dark Beasts

OR Aberrant spectres

OR Spiritual x

 

All could make sense.

If it weren't for the fact that it's in an official newspost. Excerpt from the BTS below:

 

We're also releasing a new batch of slayer masks. In the same way as the previous set, these masks can increase your Slayer XP on certain assignments and have various other benefits to those looking to slay their namesake creatures. They look really cool too! Creatures featured in this set include banshees, dust devils, gargoyles and jadinkos.

wow I would love a dark beast mask. I like the mask concept, just wish they existed for better tasks. Banshees, jellies, jadinkos, and dust devils aren't exactly good tasks in my opinion and the name of Mask of Mourning makes much more sense for dark beasts. Don't think we will get that though
