I'm honestly not sure that I care which skills are added.

I'm also in the 'don't care' camp when it comes to the next three adventurers.

Does Meg give lamps for hunter/cooking/construction? I honestly haven't noticed.

Meg gives lamps for all adventurer skills. She used to give a wrong one for the Biologist because they called her something different in planning and didn't change it for a month+ after release.

 

The xp missions would be nice, especially if there's nothing else to do. 35k in agility? Sounds good

Yeah, I just wasn't sure they updated her to add the new skills.

 

Pretty sure she gave Hunter instead of Herblore for, like, ever, yep.

Ports expansion narrative:

 

So, in the recent poll 'What’s next for Ports?', the winning option was to keep expanding, but what does that actually mean?

 

To me, in terms of content, these things are a given: new adventurers, resources, upgrades (ideally ship and buildings), a random event (hopefully), trade goods and rewards for you to make with them. These are all going to be a part of the update (or at least as many as we have time to include).

 

What I'm more interested in right now is to know what expansion means to you in terms of Ports' STORY...

 

The immediate assumption is that we would just add more island groups beyond The Shield, which would lead to even longer voyages. And while that is one option, it doesn’t HAVE to be this. Instead of expanding further and further due east, we could instead expand laterally. This could widen the scope of Ports a little and hopefully add a bit more variety to proceedings.

 

Some of the ideas for areas to expand into are noted below. Let us know what you think of them – whether you’re passionate that the Ports remains exclusivly in the Eastern Lands, or whether other directions interest you. Also, if you have completely new ideas, tell us those too! We can’t guarantee how we’ll decide this, but we’d like popular opinion to dictate this, either in this forum or in a future player poll.

 

 

1) Beyond The Shield – Okay, so maybe there are some really, really far out islands beyond even The Shield. They’re going to take a looooong time to reach (20+ hour voyages!), and they’ll fit in with the current structure of the existing island groupings. We may have to invent a new navy rank above Admiral of the Fleet.

 

2) Uncharted Eastern Land Waters – Throughout the current island groupings are many secrets: ghost ships, treasure islands, maelstroms to alternate worlds, mermaid kingdoms (and, as recounted by Hubbub, surprisingly homely whale bellies). These could be discovered by sending out special voyages to obtain clues/treasure maps (like scrolls) and, once found, you could send a voyage to them to obtain new resources/trade goods, and potentially also unique rewards (e.g. ghost pirate captains, mermaid crew, whale spit, buried treasure, and the gods know what else). These would tend to be located slightly south of the current Eastern Lands map.

 

3) Ascheron, Ho! – If you don’t feel that Ports HAS to just be about the Eastern Lands, there’s no reason we couldn’t let you send your ships in other compass directions to explore new lands. Why not north into the Arctic regions of Gielinor? This would allow us to explore other cultures. Imagine discovering more about the polar bears, penguins, seals and walruses, or maybe just viewing the Fremennik from a seafaring angle. Rewards might include titles like “Comrade”. This would perhaps slightly parody ports as it is, though its rewards would be as useful as anything from the Eastern Lands.

 

4) Inward Bound – Or if not north, how about exploring inwards? Gielinor already has plenty of islands that you can actually visit (e.g. Karamja, Ape Atoll, Ashdale) and some only spoken of in hushed tones (e.g. Fossil Island). As with all options in Ports, you wouldn’t get to physically visit these places, but you might find out more about them, and from a different perspective.

 

5) PIRATES! – Okay, so it’s not the PvP update, but that doesn’t stop us theming an expansion of ports around pirates and privateering. In such an expansion, we’d explore the pirate islands to the north east – from known locations like Port Phasmatys, Harmony Island and Mos Le'Harmless further out to barrier reefs, zombie pirate forts and Rabid Jack’s fleet. Smuggle ‘rum’, fend off pirate zombies, wear jaunty hats to thwart Baron von Hattenkrapper and beware the dreaded Albatross!

 

NONE of these narrative ideas would stop us from letting you actually visit these places in future updates. Ports just offers a different perspective on them. In fact, the opposite is true – places visited in Ports are more likely to be added to the game as places you can actually visit, as being able to find out about them within Ports drums up players’ interest in them. So don’t be put off an idea because you think that means you’ll then never get to visit it in quests or other content.

Now it's Agility, Dg, and Div, shortly followed by "I don't even sail, bro."

Skillcape rework poll:
 

Skillcape Rework: Poll 2!

Diamond



Earlier in the year, we polled a skillcape rework, which passed. We'd now like your input again to determine the look of the new skillcapes. For more detailed views of the new example skillcape compared to its older counterpart, please check out the forum thread.

Highest total wins!

Tidy up the cape

This option will just involve remodeling the skillcapes to remove clipping and other issues. The capes will still use the same skill icons.

Use new skill icons

This option will involve remodeling the skillcapes to remove clipping and other issues as in option 1, as well as using the new skill icons.

I don't mind
Choose this option if you do not mind how the skillcapes are reworked.

Poll ETA: Tuesday 30th September


Can someone fix the images? Thanks!

Kind of thought the rework would be a bit more extensive than just reworking the icons...

Its going to be its just one aspect their polling. I think they are polling it to see if players desire a more traditional and robust icon or a more detailed and vivid icon.

Personally, I think the second pair look cooler, particularly with that Slayer icon.  Some of the older icons for other skills look nicer though..

I sincerely hope this polls 'tidy up and remove clipping issues' isn't the extent of the "rework" and that this does just pertain to the icons with further polls to follow because i voted for a skill cape REWORK not a skillcape tidy up of clipping issues, but ultimately still the same.
