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.

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.

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".
