12-May-2014 - Return to Ashdale & Choose Your Path

Recommended Posts

Return to Ashdale & Choose Your Path

 

In today's free-to-play update, those of you who've completed A Shadow over Ashdale can return to the island to battle the crassians and their leader. You can also get advice on what to do next from the Choose Your Path system, or show off your skills as a high flyer on the hiscores.

Read on for more information, or log into RuneScape now!

Terror from the Depths

 

Speak to Gudrik in Taverley to head back to Ashdale. Once you're there, be sure to activate the new lodestone for future access.

 

Via a new entrance in the north-west corner of the island, you'll be able to access a new combat area, populated with crassians ready for a scrap - great for low-level combat training. You'll also find a dead man's chest, that allows you replay the quest's final boss fight.

 

Prevail against the boss, and you'll net yourself more black pearls, which can be used for a level-scaled chunk of bonus XP in the skill of your choice.

 

Note that members can get two of these pearls per week, and both can be used on the same day. Free players can get one per week. The pearls from the quest can still only be used once per day.

 

Back on Dry Land

 

We've also added a big batch of content to the Path System. Once you're done with Gudrik's initial path content, the Path tab will switch to the Choose Your Path system. This offers guidance for a range of different tastes. Combat, skilling, questing - whichever you like best, Choose Your Path has advice on where to find the RuneScape's finest content.

 

Open up the 'Adventures' interface and select the 'Path' tab to see the choice that's on offer.

 

Riding High

 

The Ninja Team have snuck in a few new rewards for the hiscores, and for owners of the max and completionist capes.

 

Firstly, we've introduced a new title - 'the Supreme' - for anyone who's reached number one on any of our hiscore tables.

 

Next up, the top 100 players in a seasonal hiscore category now have access to its reward title - not just the first-place player. The first-place player will get a special gold version of the title to show off their achievement, though.

 

Finally, we've added two new titles - 'Maxed' and 'the Completionist' - for owners of the max and completionist capes respectively. Note that you'll need to equip (or remove and re-equip) the cape to unlock its title.

 

Enjoy!

 

There's new combat content for everyone here, all-important guidance for players wondering what to do next, and more ways than ever to show off what you've achieved. As always, let us know your thoughts over on the forums.

For the love of Zaros can't they please fix the darn minimap at Ashdale already.

 

Plain, flat coloured blocks with 0 texturing and 0 markings for walls and fountains and stalls etc coupled with gaps of pure blue because certain land masses don;t show on the map looks hideous and ridiculously amateurish.

 

This place is meant to be the first thing players see and with the new quest etc a place they return to a fair bit early on the least you could do is take 30 minutes to make the minimap look remotely presentable.

Am I the only one who was expecting the Zaros combat update today? >.< 

 

I like that they did this though;

So will portable forges eventually have a chance to give protean bars like portable saws do for protean planks? Like portable forges needed more of a perk hah.

 

Not a terrible week, new bonus exp weekly, new low level training spot. Not really useful for me but still okay. Wonder why ancient combat was removed from this week's batch? O_o

Bts on the YouTube page said week after next. I thought maybe we'd see some beta stuff go live this week.

 

Also happy about the hiscore, means I might get a shot at Zilyana's Bane.

Really slim patch notes. And please tell me someone is playing a joke... Max/comp titles now?

It was a suggestion on HLF feedback, that you could permanently unlock this title if you had at any time been eligible for max/comp cape. The idea was that you could show that you had been there and done that before while currently unable to wear the cape (e.g. new skill/quest).

 

Of course it was implemented in the same way as the Defeater title, making it pretty pointless :P I also hear that people want to change the colour of the Completionist title if you're trimmed too.

Colour changes sounds more appropriate than the 'the Trimmed' suggestion I saw some people airing.

 

My only grievance with the titles is I can't have the Maxed because I keepsaked the cape and have no desire to buy another as it should only be a month or 2 max before I want to keepsake comp instead.

Gratz.. but you can just buy a 2nd cape... it's not *that* expensive.

It is when you have no desire to buy another one for the sake of a title you'd only use for a few weeks and as a whole you are not much of a pvmer or a mercher so on the whole for a maxed player you are very poor and are trying to scrape the money together to get another piece of top end gear on the inevitable road to getting more into pvm now your running out of other stuff to do.

If it's that much of an issue I'll give you the money for another max cape L

Seems like the issue is that he has better things to spend ~2m on than a title that he isn't going to use.

This.

I wasn't being like amg its such an issue I can't have the title cause I can't buy another cape, woe is me.

 

I was just being slightly flippant that the only tiny thing wrong with the titles was my lack of desire to buy a 2nd max cape means I have to wait all of a month or 2 to unlock it when I take it back out of keepsake to put comp in.

I just don't see it as WORTH paying 2m for a title at this moment in time when I'm so close to being able to unlock it for free anyway and it won't be one I use and that is the only flaw of the title update.

Mod Stu says the repeatable boss will be changing from a 7 day after completion reset to an actual weekly reset on the same day as penguins.
