Jagex difficulty tends to have two polar opposites:

 

We tested it as normal players and died therefore we say it is hard, but real players will sail through it until we over buff it in a kneejerk reaction and then take months to balance it right.

We tested it using mod powers like infinite health and over-boosted stats and found it ok, therefore it is 'doable' by mid-high level players, but real players will be utterly destroyed and we will nerf things later - right about when the related markets stabilise cause lol chaos.

The testing part is spot on but the second half needs an amendment. "We tested it as normal players and died therefore we say it is hard, but real players will sail through it until a handful abuses the shit out of it and makes billions/gets 200m then we over buff it in a kneejerk reaction and then take months (about 12 months because yea that's a year but technically it's also months) to balance it right."


I am not a skiller, but i do some skills.

I think you need to add an onyx, but then they degrade to dust.

At the moment you use a Hydrix on a cut onyx, string it/cast it like normal and use the enchant onyx spell. A lot of players suggested that instead of turning to dust (which is [bleep]ing retarded to be honest) it becomes in a "dead" state after 10 hrs, and is recharged by adding another cut onyx to the hydrix gear.

Ana is changing it so you can add an onyxx to recharge the hydrix equipment.

Can you provide proof of where she said this?

Q: Could you let us recharge the new jewellery items with onyx gems instead of using the "degrade to dust" mechanic? Right now most of them have niche uses, making them not worth getting.

Mod Ana: This is on our list of feedback changes to make.

This is absolutely perfect and a much needed revision to fix a reward which would have otherwise been useless. Not only have they made the new jewelry worth using with this, they have made Onyxes more useful and added some value to them, and thus by proxy also making the Kiln more valuable and worthwhile (and also the 100 Kiln requirement).

I haven't kept up with this thread in a few weeks-months so I haven't read a lot besides this page, but they've never considered bringing void back and making it more useful? I feel like when they release new content they kill old content. Yes, I know it isn't easy to keep old content new necessarily but they seem to make no effort for months to revive it. Void could be SO useful, like it used to be.

Well, considering they nuked it a last time about a month ago, in the name of "balancing", guess there will never be an effective way to use void now.

The hot fix also increased araxxors click radius on sweeps. I wonder if the good outweighs the bad?

Increased it!   But it was already way too big and in need of reduction, why the heck would they increase it.

it's not that void because obsolete due to new equipment or combat system changes, they took it out back and shot it in the stats manually after they saw everybody using it with the return of legacy

 

days after they added a void points upgrade for it which does almost nothing in the post legacy armor system

 

it's like they fired everybody that knew how to make stuff for runescape and replaced them with generic abc channel scriptwriters like they did with community

Sounds like it would be a bit OP, no?

I watched the Livestream and this jewellery is off the charts. The amulet is best in slot for every role (beating out the Dungeoneering items) AND it has prayer AND it has a passive effect of 25-50% more Soul Split healing.

This counts for all other pieces, too. The ring is like all the imbued rings of MA rolled into one with a bit of armour (and I think prayer) added to it. Has a passive as well.

Bracelet is basically Razorbacks, Ascension handwraps and Celestial gauntlets rolled into one with prayer added.

 

For their ridiculous stats I don't mind them being degrade to dust.

I've found that it's much easier to click away if you use the classic camera instead of the RS3 camera.  So that may be a change to try.

Drygore Drops: 7 Longswords, 3 Maces, 3 Rapiers, 3 Off-hand Rapiers,  5 Off-hand Maces, 3 Off-hand Longswords

ROTS Shields: 12  Seismics: 16

Im confused by this Genie of good will: i used my daily spins, got a lamp , used it and the genie appeared and told me I was 'the millionth user',   I chose the fortune option and was award around 650k for doing absolutely nothing.     Was I just lucky or is this quite OP?

 

It's stuff like this that annoys me, they make such a big fuss about  stopping inflation and making gold sinks, then introduce promotions like this...

It's pretty dumb. I got 2 small prismatic stars and she gave me like 740k for each one or something.

they figure that it's okay since they're ripping you off on spider runs

 

it's a running gag, if you get the genie again she's confused as to how you keep winning

I have not had the pleasure of getting more free OP xp yet. Will report back soon.

 

So this new stuff really is that OP? Remember my post about them killing older content?

edit: did my keys and got a medium div lamp, that was it

she appears next to you ingame, as opposed to any kind of prompt, so just keep an eye out and use your stars and lamps slowly
