It's a fake, apparently.

It (image) was in HLF forum, but apparently it's fake.

So very disappointed to hear this wasn't real. :(

Not as disappointing as the fact that it's been a whole month and they still haven't given us a date for when it will happen, for what is essentially a 5 minute change.

Was a excuse given about it being a lot of work?

I'll say it again , they dont want people to be able to dump 50+ lamps onto div from bol!

Nope, no excuses. Not a word.

I don't see the problem with dumping BOL lamps on it or why theyd want to stop it . It takes at least 2 hours to earn a huge lamp which gives a maximum of around 60k xp. Thats way lower an xp rate than actually training the skill in the first place.

The only reason for them to do that would be spite.

 

If that statement is true (I know the picture is fake but it could change at reset purely out of coincidence), then I'll be disappointed that I couldn't get 99 before the bonus xp started like I said I would.

I would think next weeks game update is the likely time for it to be turned on, closest update to the 1 month mark and all; if not I'd expect the week after to neatly coincide with bol vanishing.

I have thought that for a few game updates now.. not counting on it..

 

If they don't want people using lamps from BoL on Divination, why did they allow the purchase of lamps in the first place? And like someone else already said - It's a lot of work for 1 large lamp..

 

It's funny how you still get the Golden Chinchompa message in the lobby. :P.

I don't know why we'd have to wait for a game update though. Turning bonus div xp on is such a tiny update. 


DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

CR vs. CLS threads always turn into discussions about penis size.

It's not called a Compensation Longsword for nothing.

I've sent a 12k combat mission to have Aiel assassinated (poor bastard isn't even Pincers-tier difficulty).

You got to put in that work before August the 20th, though :P

That's because this is not a matter of Jagex being lazy, it's a calculated and conscious effort on their part to not allow it. I am in an elite clan, and there are usually J-Mods that drop in once a while. Top players get quite a few perks. One of the current things is that they have been asking J-Mods to open up old user-names for them, so they can have them -- and guess what? Dozens of people have had J-Mods grant their wishes. So don't kid yourself, if they wanted it done, they'd do it.

I for one didn't get any BoL lamps, and I could care less if some other people did hoard a few and want to use them -- that's not a disadvantage to me if they can use it.

Hold on now. Not to interrupt the thread or anything but this is actually happening? Is it the kind of thing where you have to be elite to have this done, or could someone with my stats make a request and actually get a name out of it if it's reasonable for them to do so?

 

Because this is something from my Scape bucket list and if it's the former I might collapse into some kind of hate-singularity.

Patiently waiting.

I really do wish they'd hurry the [bleep] up and unlock this damn skill. Hell, we already basically know who's going to be the first to 200m. Goddamnit.

Don't hold your breath, Leik, they have been teasing us for weeks, without any explanation or words. I have 9 spins saved up, and anytime I get a ticket, I bring it back down to 9. They're are masters at wasting everyone's time and being ambiguous about expectations.

It's something that's in elite circles at the moment, but you could try going into Mod Jane's FC (when she is online) and requesting for a name to be freed, she might do it.

Apologies for me staying off-topic, but here it is:

 

I sadly missed this "promotion", because who visits HLF anyway, right?

 

For those of you who want a certain username, here's a small hint you might not have known about:

Add the username you want to your ignore list. As soon as it gets freed up, the name will be changed to something random, and, if you're quick, you can nab it!

 

EDIT: On-topic .. 97 Divination. Yay?!.

The thread was made so that Mod Jane could get a list of the more "desirable" display names, identify why they haven't been freed, potentially modify criteria for freeing up names, and then release as many names as possible for all players.

There was no special "promotion" where anyone posting on the thread was going to get a free display name change, and any display names that get freed up in this process can be nabbed by anyone (potentially even the name-sniping bots, though Jane is trying to ensure that this does not happen).

Why was the thread only posted on the HLF then?

The amount of work Mod Jane would have to do if she posted it in General would easily be 10 times more.

Remember, these names are getting freed for everyone, not just HLFers.
