I thought you were a proud follower or Saradomin? Have I been away from tip.it for too long?

 

I switched sides as I learnt more lore. I have been following Armadyl for quite a few months now.

 

Glad to see you've seen some sense. Though you're still not following Zaros...

Does anyone know if you can turn off the convoy messages? It goes through the filter and it's getting pretty annoying.

So what is the fastest way to get renown currently?  Also are there things I can vote for that would make gathering renown in the future easier?

Best way I found to get renown was to turn on PVP. Then build the random little things along the routes. You get 10 renown every hit. And it is also AFK

Is it just me or has there not been any form of proper lore explanation as to why exactly Armadyl and Bandos have chosen to battle each other to the death in this fashion following Sliskes meeting with the Gods. I was expecting an in depth cutscene with some dialogue explaining it and instead all I got was the 2 gods roaring at each other. Why in particular is it these 2 fighting, who instigated it and why have they both decided to build massive towers to do it?

Armadyl got really frustrated with bandos to the point of breaking at that meeting with Sliske, and Bandos... Well, you know, Bandos, Big High War God that he is...

Err, the towers are weapons, I suppose the height helps picking out the target all across Gielinor. Though why you couldn't simply go underground to avoid it, I don't know. Armadyl would like to have Bandos dead because Bandos is the least dedicated to peace of all gods. Why Bandos suddenly decided to fight Armadyl - probably because he thinks Armadyl is still unwilling to fight, and therefore an easy target.

I agree, but its the fact that we have to guess/ assume these things that annoys me, surely even a small dialogue would have been beneficial!

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?

Apparently, it isn't possible to buy all of the rewards. That said, maybe you can still get them all if you hold off on buying the ones that will be added as drops?

 

Unrelated: really liking the free construction exp here.

might be easier to get all cosmetic weapons. i got 32 metal from destroying 1 bandos building. it took all of me and a friends renown though, but u might stay longer and just camp a far away node from a tele to get metal

I got three of the four components for my side from killing a single caravan - each convoy and bodyguard and golem has a chance to drop them. Convoys also can drop frags, though it's about a 1 in 4 rate from what I can tell, which is obnoxious.

 

You also can get frags for destroying an enemy building, not sure about components.

 

Anyone interested in helping me on a project to boost Bandos's power, send me a pm in-game. You'll earn contribution/renown (up to the usual cap), though not xp, and it's perfectly safe.

Sorry for double post; my bad. >.>

 

Does anyone know if you can turn off the convoy messages? It goes through the filter and it's getting pretty annoying.

 

 

Is there any way to turn off all the messages about this world event without turning game messages off entirely?

 

I believe you can turn off the convoy/skirmish messages by talking to the Doomsayer in Lumbridge.

 

Also, Non-PvP players can attack the convoy and PvP can't do anything except watch them destroy it...really Jagex

You can "Engage" allied combat NPCs to heal them for Constitution xp and 10 contribution per tick; it's just as afk as building. Heals 100hp per tick on the normal bodyguards; 150 on the aviansie/ork.

 

Bandos warpriest looks snazzy. How easy is it to get bandos points right now? Impossible or very difficullt?

It's not difficult. If you can find a Bandos world (there are several) then it's just as easy as Armadyl; if not, it's still not difficult, it just takes more time because you don't get the PvP boost.

I switched sides as I learnt more lore. I have been following Armadyl for quite a few months now.

 

 

Honestly, I don't think its very good content. Its incredibly unbalanced and the way it works that unbalance will just draw more people to Armadyl's side. I also think its a bad plan to use such unbalanced content to direct the lore.

 

 

Though I can agree that it is unbalanced, it is mainly so because of the player's choice. There's such a far majority that supports Armadyl that the Bandosians would need a power boost of like + 300% or something for it to be fair. And that is honestly just ridiculous. At least in my opinion. Even though I don't wish for the losing god to die (There's a great thread on the future updates part of the RSOF on this; [qfc]16-17-630-65199390[/qfc] ) I still think is the best update in game so far. I really do love how far this game have come. World-spanning, strategical world events with two gods, representing completely different things, fighting and with us, the players, getting a big say in pretty much everything. And yes, I do know I am optimistic and that I will get comments on this like 'Wake up' :p. But right now I am actually too happy for that.

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...

I agree that it's fine that the event's outcome is basically decided already. That makes sense, because that's how the playerbase stands.

 

What I don't like is how un-fun the gameplay becomes as a result of that. In BoL, the gameplay was rewarding and fun regardless of which side yo uwere on. In this, the gameplay as Bandos sucks pretty terribly. That needs addressing.
