To the people complaining that the world event is not balanced:

 

The entire idea of this world event is to let the players decide who wins and who dies...

 

I thinck this is working out pretty well actually, there is a clear conscensus amongst players as to who deserves to live...

 

If Jagex where to 'rebalance' it, it would defeat the entire purpose of the event...

 

Actually, there were a significant amount of people who were opposed to the 'purpose' of this world event from the start, as soon as it got announced at Runefest; there was a petition shortly up afterwards. Yes, the point of the world event is to kill one god via popularity question; but the point that the opposition has is that this is a terrible idea.

My point was that Jagex succeeded in doing what they wanted to do.

 

I myself am not that opposed to the idea of killing a god.

You do however make a valid point that killing of such a mayor influence in the game (even if it is by player choice) presents obvious lore problems/questions.

I just hope Jagex can make Bandos' dead (or Armadyls, however unliky) somehow mean something for Runescape without destroying mayor parts of lore/quest plots/player fanbase/...

It's rather rushed, Bandos is rather one-dimensional, for it to really mean anything. And obviously it can't really live up the Guthix-death standard. Also, though the lore problems are there, even more importantly, it makes the gameplay of WE2 rather horrible.

Did they really need a 'world event' to kill bandos? A simple poll on the website would have been enough.

So much wasted development time.

Since when has destroying dung rewards for tokens been a thing?

Or did I misread the patch notes?

 

Came out a couple of weeks ago iirc.

This, when you're going to make it "good" vs "evil" the decision is already decided. What's the point of pretending there was going to be a different outcome? I doubt Jagex even has prepared lore/future content that has Bandos surviving.

I'm hoping they will do something about Metal fragments, I don't intend chasing caravans for countless hours just to get 14 shards every 3rd caravan...

Hehe, the default image without score influence shows Armadyl winning.  Ironic.

It's fully white aka Armadyl at 100% lead against Bandos.

I am not opposed to killing off gods but right now it is wayyyy too early. The God Wars raged for years and apparently not many of the gods died. Now all of a sudden they're going to be dropping like flies?

 

It would be better if the winner would push the loser into temporary submission, and the winner would also be the main character in an upcoming quest series.

Can we even buy all rewards from both factions? I ran some numbers and they tell me it's a bit over 6 weeks to buy everything

 

-200k for warpriest set

-228k for emotes

-135k for titles

This is 563k per faction

 

Plus 158k for the three abilities

 

A total of 1284k renown needed, with 30k/daily, it would be 42,8 days, or 6,11 weeks

 

So...Am I missing something here?

 

you can get additional renown from  divine crystals

You don't get additional renown if you have reached your maximum for the day.

Fastest way to get 30k renown?

Enable PVP and AFK at a building. Just gotta pay a little attention so that you don't get PKed. Shouldn't really be a problem if you went Armadyl. Takes like 30 minutes or less.

 

Also, constructor's garb and the construction chisel both work there.
