Can't wait for new premier club, missed out on last years.

The zammy themed xmas event sounds fun but the santa hat rares are just a bad idea.

World event 2..can't wait, let's hope they kill of Armadyl, the one God I really can't stand.

Slayer monster sounds interesting but i'll probably never bother with.

It’s also a busy month for Solomon, with legendary reindeer pets, living presents, player designed Christmas outfits, Bandos and Armadyl-themed costumes, and even some retro armour.

PLEASE

 

Why does it only let me like once :(

 

First impressions: slayer monster nice, hopefully gets put in Kuradal's, world event sounds a little more well thought out than last time. Not sure if I'll get premier membership this year - I did last time, and there was a period of several months where I would not otherwise have been a member. Fool me once... We'll see.

Overall sounds like a good month.

 

Bit disappointed that after being told a while back that we'd be getting "back to normal" with quests and that there was 4 due this year we've only had 2; but I'm sure I'll cope.

 

Seems like a strange month really in that only 1 content update is permanent.

1 will just be around for 2 weeks, 1 for 15 days and 1 for 6 weeks.

 

not sure how I feel about them introducing a new tradable rare - I thought they were attempting to fix the economy tradable rares are kind a problem in that.

Overall looks like a pretty good month. Not much permanent stuff, but still plenty to do.

 

Not sure how I feel about the black santa hat.

I'd be fine with new tradable rares if they were introduced in a certain way.

 

You can purchase them from a store for a set price of say 250m. You cannot sell them back to the store. They can then be resold to other players, presumably at a slightly lower price than the store price. This way the price is capped to a value within the bounds of reason, as well as acting as a cash sink. Over time the value would probably settle quite significantly below the store value, but that's OK.

I really hope they won't require us to participate for 4 hours a day slaving in the world event to get all the rewards. :/ As a student with lots of upcoming tests, I'm slightly concerned I'll miss out.

You should be done your tests by the time it rolls out I would imagine.

Doesn't look like a very interesting month, in my opinion. Holiday event is the usual, the festive aura is just cheap bonus xp, there's going to be lots of SoF/Solomon's updates, tradable rares (!?), the new slayer monster is going to be annoying to hunt, not worth it for xp and the gloves will degrade to dust. The only thing worth looking forward to is the world event, and that only for the rewards, because Divination sucks so bad.

So basically, the updates this month are RWT, holiday, temporary rewards for the people who play *now* and one new slayer monster. We're not getting crucial reworks for skills, monsters, EoC, equipment, quests or whatever. Well, more time to afk at Castle Wars I suppose. Trimming truly becomes reachable for everyone if no content and free xp keep coming.

If the abilities from world event 2 are game changers, eg, balances, it would be fine to have them be exclusive to the people who unlock them during the event, but AFTERWARDS, they need to be easy to get.

If you can get them afterwards they are by no means exclusive to the event.

By that, I meant, during the event they are exclusive to it, and afterwards, they are available to everyone

Can't wait for new premier club, missed out on last years.

 

Compared to last years, this one is absolutely not worth it by the tiniest bit!

Do we actually have the full details of the packages?

 

I see a lot of people saying this with certainty yet afaik we haven't actually been shown the full details yet so can't exactly judge it.

New Slayer monster that I actually have the slayer level to kill? Yes please. The fact that it has new bones hopefully somewhere between dragon bones and frost dragon bones means it'll probably be and stay good consistent profit. I'm probably going to have to change my plans of gameplay for the next few months to accommodate trying them out.

 

World Event : I didn't participate in the BoL because the rewards were stupid. However new armor that has reduced the cooldown on some abilities has lots of promise to be game changing and the new abilities could be interesting as well. As long as it's not a hours per day commitment I will probably do it. I'm hoping that its more in the range of 30 minutes of time commitment per day to cap whatever the event has for you that day. I need construction exp and div exp so the exp rewards should be pretty nice. 

 

I'll definitely be joining the new premier club so I'm looking forward to that.

 

Black Santa Hat : meh. I think all rares are stupid. The only things that I ever want to spend money on are things that make the gameplay different/more enjoyable/easier so let everyone else have at them.

 

Christmas Events, will probably do it if its super fast to get the fashionscape items and then I won't touch it again. 

 

All in all I'm excited for the month.



Armadyl Drops : 4 Hilts; 3 Chestplates; 2 Chainskirts; 1 Helmet; 1 Buckler; 2 Shard 1; 2 Shard 2; 1 Shard 3

Nex : 1 Zaryte Bow

I don't call a brief flash of a screenshot/list that could easily be a mock-up for a page yet to exist or indeed simply the main advert table with 'extras' listed in an unshown section (you know like last years did) full details of the packages.

If you look back a few posts I broke down what was included based on the shot from the youtube vid.
