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.

It's a minor point, but you can't possibly know that. You don't even know when his exams are. If they're after Christmas, which isn't unusual, your reassurances fall flat.

My exams are in January and we get the last 2 weeks of in December for holidays and general study times.

If the world event start coincides with the start of my two weeks off the end of the event will of it will literally coincide with the end of my exams.

 

So yeah, if it's anything as intense of a timewaster like last world event I'm royally screwed.

With the bts vid for it next friday it seems as though the world event will be launching ~9th Dec

6 week event takes us right through the ~20th jan

 

A lot of post-xmas exams/deadlines fall right in that window.

Same here, we got exams from the 13th till the 20th. And again in January some re-take exams (which I thank god for that I dont need to do them as I passed them earlier, and I'm an Athiest!)

Doesn't even have to be asked, everyone will pick Armadyl.

this time, given the circumstances, we might choose to frontload into bandos so we end with armadyl (there's no real post event storyline reward for siding with a DEAD god, is there?), however that would also be determined by the ease of flipflopping this time

 

frankly, they should make it super easy to get the rewards so that the people who actually care about the event are the ones controlling it, not just the whims of fashionscape/prestigescape

After the first world event I seem to recall them saying that they didn't want to make the next one such a grind. Whether that means less time to get all rewards, or less times to max daily contribution remains to be seen. And then there's the chance that they didn't take their own advice and are making this one just as much of a grind as the last.

So wtf is Bandos?

He has 4 eyes, no nose, and a chin for half a face.

I'm on team Bandos so hopefully I can figure this out.

The PVP component will probably suck.

I can see being teamed by 10 gold buyers with full tier 90 equipment screaming "noob L2P".

He just successfully trolled you with "courtesy" and managed to get a reaction out of you. Lol

the gloves do degrade... It has been confirmed all gear from t90 will be created from ashes and to ashes they will return!

Yep. Couldn't agree more.
 
This is bang-on, right in the middle of the typical university / college exam season. I know a lot of my friends on other courses have got assignments / dissertation briefs due in the next few weeks, and exams pretty much straight after New Year. Busiest time of the year for lots of people.
 
The only thing to be said is that during the actual holiday periods themselves, RuneScape playing numbers rise dramatically as people find themselves having whole days off to play with, which is typical with other games and other gaming formats. So could people spare four hours then? Yeah, probably. Hard to see elsewhere, though.

Kind of annoying that they release T90 gloves less than eight months after T85, though.

No more annoying than when they nerfed t85 armour as a whole a couple of months after most of it came out with the whole tank:power thing.

 

I mean aren't the t85 gloves (and glacor boots) kinda meh anyway being tank items?

Pretty happy with everything aside from them still portraying Zamorak as evil, despite recent consistent statements to the contrary, and level 90 melee gloves but not boots or gloves for other styles. It'll be so long before we have equivalents if the other gear has been any indication... -.-

Oh, and what the hell is with their description of Bandos? Isn't that exactly what they say Zamorak is about?
