This divine familiar poll confuses me, why is the utterly useless option winning?

 

The one that holds chronicles and remotely offers them, useful if you are collecting chronicles (and tbf with it you prob should be for the boosted xp)

The forager gives you stuff to weave/do more high xp offering, kinda handy.

Boost to boon,s diving location limit and signs of porter? Nice reduce item use, increased xp and increased profits.

 

Bob that can hold ONLY divine memories...what exactly is the use of it? There's no reason to take divine memories anywhere and no way to get them other than right next to the one place you need to take them too.

I'm with you on this just voted and was curious figured one of the top 3 would be winning, and my jaw dropped at the BoB.

 

 

I suspect people are reading as far as it being huge with more space than a yak and then stopping missing the vitally important fact of divine memories ONLY which renders it utterly useless.

The holiday items poll is simply retarded. What's the point of the poll if they differ in look from the original items (though, that'd be even worse).

Wonder how many people will train defence levels on pures, use that to allow for faster training, then roll it back when the chance arises... This should be interesting, and I'll probably make use of it myself. :lol:

^^ this so much

 

It's a shame prestige didn't go through tbh, really wanted to reset my defence level nontheless so I hope this is my second chance :).

 

Cool now I can get my rubber chicken back which got lost in the RS2 - RS3 transition. Shame it'll look different.

Wasn't the point of the new combat formula, EOC and all these shenanigans is so that people don't get a ridiculous advantage by having 1 defence and 99 everything else? Because pures were arguably overpowered?

 

Are they really going back on what they've been trying to 'fix' all this while? 

 

I don't understand, I really really don't.

To put a new system in place it should render the old one obsolete, the majority doesn't think it does.

 

Was that the original idea from Jagex?

 

LOL, now I understand why the osrs players hate so much on the system.

Combat level calculation wasn't the reason why pures died. It was because of the life bonus from armour, which pures couldn't wear, which gave people a massive advantage against pures.

The problem was that defense contributed so little to win probability that you could increase your win probability/combat level by training other skills instead. That was the major flaw of the combat formula: it didn't actually take the power of each stat into account.

 

Because defense has a point now, you can't understate your combat power by not training defense. That is, someone with balanced stats will be more powerful than someone with uneven stats, assuming they have the same combat level. That means that pures die.

 

Things will only get worse for them if they bring back the old combat formula.

OK, so the BoB will autofill and autoempty. This makes me like it more.

yeah, i guess players would rather have slightly more perceived convenience than profit

 

but enough of that, i guess i want the players to prove that they don't know jack about the stuff they're complaining about?

 

the only cost being all of the cool stuff we could have had instead just taunting us forever with those bad decisions

 

the christmas event reward should be five hundred humble pies

Yeah even with autofill and empty I see very little point in it even in meta game numbers.

The time you spend siphoning and the time you spend turning in will be identical whether you use it or not the only difference is you'll save a couple of seconds every few rounds due to running the few squares to the crater less.

 

Surely remotely submitted chronicles or improved boon are still better overall. Chronicle xp isnt half bad really, just the time it takes to run them ruins it, which this would eliminate. And Boon boost means a outright extra % increase to xp.

It does add up over time though...

 

EDIT:

 

But definitely not as good as the chronicles one..

Chronicles are so rare now you'd basically only get one load sent per familiar. And that's if you summon it after you get all 10 first.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

It does add up over time though...

Yes and if it exists it'd be worth using for that overtime saving.

 

However that does not change the fact that only 1 of these will make it into the game and in terms of pure time to 99 mechanics remote offering of boons (thus allowing you to use them efficiently), an extra % increase to the normal xp rate and heck even the ability to stock up a bunch of energy for higher turn in via forager are all quite clearly going to up xp:h rates just about enough to reduce time to 99 more than some stupid auto filling bob.

Ugh...You could always not try to train div when you don't have bonus xp rather than mindlessly running memories to a bank only to have to run them back again at a later date, the sum product of which probably utterly negates the effect of bonus xp...but then that would require the average scaper to have an ounce of intellect. -.-

They do most of the work. Just to quickly deposit when they get bonus XP. Why don't they only train divination with bonus XP.
