Future Update Discussions

Recommended Posts

Those are definitely some good ideas, change ability effects/powers based on weapon type. Some are clearly overpowered but that can of course be worked on.

Its funny though that I always saw jagex moving towards abilities and weapon specials after the whip was released. I mean players doing 40-41 damage when your max hp was 99 was a good indicator of power creep getting too high. I didn't necessarily see them getting rid of the lp truncation, but I'm certain it was very foreseeable. I saw the liniar progression of power from weapons being released and only saw it fit that they work on versatility to win appeal for the less powerful items.

 

Sure you could range araxxor and avoid swipes, but what if it was the melee araxxor? You could use the scythe, a potential halberd item to stay just within reach of him and easily run out of the swipe. Thats just a shallow example of weapon versatility though...

TL;DW 067 - Q&A, Falador and D&D Improvements (self.runescape)

submitted 23 hours ago * by ItsSuitySuity

 

 

Release schedule

18th - Minigames spotlight release

25th - D&D Improvements

1st - Tuska

 

No active desert projects

 

June's RuneLabs criteria has not been fully determined

Probably looking at a medim-sized udpate

Release for Novemeber

Aiming Inventor for Nov/Dec so the RuneLabs release probably won't be skilling related

 

Ironman comp cape will be addressed

Group Bossing

Alternatives to requirements (like they did for achievements)

 

DW/2H Abilities for ranged/magic like there is for melee is in the backlog

Making ablities is expensive (need animations for entire weapon sets) which is why you don't get them as often

Weapon categories is something they slowly want to get into (eg Halberds have a higher range)

Still a chance to get the gamebreaker title

 

Seasonal hiscores will return but with possible changes

Hiding the hiscores gets more people taking part (eg Easter Event)

Maybe something more spontaneous (eg Collect cabbages for an hour, random broadcast)

More relevant to the week's update

 

NTX is hopefully released during later half of the year

 

Rebalanced quest bosses are in QA

 

Luring

The Luring incident recently on Reddit

The lure will be fixed next week

People involved in the lure have already have action taken against their accounts

The list of lures on Reddit are being investigated

Discussing whether to show rares to other players once dropped

 

Solomon's

A non-SGS world won't happen

Too many technical issues

Slows down updates

Maintenance

Instead they will design releases that are: Fitting to the game, Fun, Not a nuisance

People running around with them doesn't impact your gameplay

Bringing RS back to feel like a medieval fantasy

'With some recent stuff we have probably gone beyond what we should have'

 

Ninja Team

There is a 'shit-list' of items that will be getting niche uses back

God Books (changing to pocket slot with stat adjustments is something they were considering)

Defenders

Ninja team will make changes in the near future

Looking to put all toggles in one settings menu (in a bunch of batches)

 

Ninjas will do a clan update to streamline:

Getting into clans

Starting a new clan

Leaving a clan to join another

Other things such as improving avatars

Some permissions rewrite might be included

2 GE slots being added for members (1 for F2P)

Sceptre of the Gods requirement to wield changed to 1

Familiars can be renewed regardless of time remaining

 

 

D&D Improvements

 

Champions Challenge

Drop rate isn't being changed

No new champions

For every champion you have unlocked you can fight them again once a week to gain XP

XP is scaled to the difficulty of the champion and your stats

Leprechaun is available to all players

Leprechaun (500 HP; reduced from 800): 446 Slayer XP and HP XP

Glophren (17.4k HP; increased from 2.5k): 13,927 Slayer and HP XP

Rests with the weekly reset

Total XP is ~60k Slayer and HP XP per week if you have all scrolls

 

Skeletal Horror

50K HP; Level 91 (Scales to your stats)

Gives a guaranteed Elite clue every week

 

Phoenix Lair

Can run through now

Reborns no longer block walk (still do in quest though)

Removed delay on harvesting twigs

Reborns will probably be buffed to do more damage

All Phoenixs now give a passive firemaking level boost (doesn't matter so much for bonfiring)

Reborn Phoenix

Gives a chance to burn 2 logs at a bonfire instead of 1

Made same way as the current phoenix (but more shards and 2 phoenix quills)

 

Familiarisation

Removed RNG of the starting time

Once every two hours but always at the beginning of the two hours

Triple charms gives you a ticket so you can decide when to activate (no longer activates triple charms as soon as you finish familiarisation)

 

Court Cases

Removed the 14 day waiting time for Batch II cases

No longer have to do the tutorial case to start receiving cases

Slightly improved rewards

 

Bork

Varrock armour 4 now has a teleport to Bork option

Bork related rewards from Elite Varrock moved to Hard Varrock instead

 

Evil Tree

Buffed XP rates

After claiming rewards, Evil Tree stump will turn on fire for you to burn kindling for XP

 

Falador Improvements

Side project for the QA team (they work on it when they have nothing else to do)

Did testing a year ago but lost all the test cases so had to test everything again (reworking a city breaks all associated content)

I don't really get why a graphical rework, like the one they have shown for Falador here, should break everything.

I can see like in a big top-to-toe remodel where things move etc I get why stuff would break.But this appears to just be a fairly simple texture-pack swap out for the most part.

I would be willing to guess they redo some of the underlying structures and have to check for force walk tiles and stuff like that.

If I recall, on private servers based on a 2005/6 build of the game, every interactable object in the game had a unique ID, like "Chop down Tree(2256)"

 

I would assume it would be a simple matter of remapping those to new interactable objects.. but then again, fally had its graphical rework done in 2006, so that may be hecka old.

 

 

 

On that note, would anyone be able to take some RS3/Oldschool screenshots of fally before it is changed? Because it hasn't changed since then.. :)

Jagex apparently wants to work on getting some versatility out of weapons. This pretty much means finding other uses for them than just stabbing things in the heart, smashing skulls and slicing off limbs. 

 

http://www.reddit.com/r/runescape/comments/35svu3/jagex_mentioned_they_wanted_to_get_into_weapon/cr7ntuk

 

I don't know how successful they will be with this, but with invention looming it seems to be the year of innovation within runescape.

Don't mind my shameless plugs but now I'm thinking scythe extension was already in the works lol

 

Also I think everyone already knows this but even when scythe is given reach I will still be overriding it with G-ZGS anyway  -_-  2h reach too strong

What is a non-SGS world? A world without saradomin-godswords? Doesn't make sense to me... so I don't get what SGS means :P

 

"NTX is hopefully released during later half of the year". This probably means we will see NXT in december-february... companies like to say "later half of the year" when they actually mean december, and of course there will be problems on the way so I expect february, though I hope much earlier...

I assume that was sarcasm, right? :lol:

 

I think we as players should stand up and make this happen. In the roleplaying worlds from now on, we act as if Solomon was a dictator overthrown by the players and boycott the stuff there. Anyone dressed in Solomon's items or using them is an enemy hellbent on delivering the world back into the hands of the profiteer Solomon. Then we return to world 2/3/whatever and take out the Drake pets again because, well, 7 bonds was expensive. Who's with me?!

Curiosity killed the cat...err, RuneScaper. I don't know how well "I was just using a bot client to check interactable elements" will fly if something were to happen to someone's account as a consequence.

^lol, no I somehow missed the bold heading "solomon" above that line -.-" not sure how, but it is clear now :3 also we don't need no solomon worlds, we need a no solomon runescape. Or at least keep the stuff that is not necessary in solomon and put all the things that actually influence the games (portable stuff for example, which I find horrible) and make that something that you can earn in game... If some new player would come to runescape (apart from getting spammed to become a member) he/she would get bombarded with spam for solomon, spins and stuff like that... That would make me doubt if I would want to play a game like that (especially after playing some mobile games...). They don't seem to understand that it will hurt in the long run, yes it brings quick cash, but please invest the money and time in things players actually want.

I'm inclined to give that update a nod as it fills out the t70 crossbow slot properly, but I am not sure it should be deemed a 'ninja' project. I wonder what the GE baseline is going to be, given that it's a new item they are releasing...

Probably ridiculously stupid compared to its counterpart. I'm wondering if we will see anything else from this...

I mean knowing Jagex they'll put in a GE price of 10 million. Although it could (read: probably will) explode on release and subsequently crash because, you know, everyone will want one for fashion.

The trouble with them speaking in years is they are so fluid with calendar year vs financial year instead of sticking to just one. Later half of year with such ambiguity basically means July-March - Jul-Dec for calendar, oct-mar for financial.

TH promo for the weekend:

Dragon trinkets are this weekend's new arrival on Treasure Hunter. Bear these magical artefacts and become a fire-breather's bane!
 
From 00:00 UTC (game time) on 15th May until 23:59 UTC on 18th May, log on and you'll receive 75 free dragon trinkets*. Give them a go, and pick up more on Treasure Hunter.
 
These stackable items sit in your necklace slot or inventory and have a range of functions, which are useful while fighting chromatic dragons**. They can:

  • Pick up and note dragon bones and hides.
  • Give Slayer XP on kills – no Slayer assignment necessary, but stacks with any assignment you do have.
  • Draconic deathblows - 5% chance per hit to instantly kill dragons above 80% life points, with an awesome new animation. This works on any chromatic dragon, except the KBD and QBD.
  • Teleport to dragon locations.
  • The first three of the above activate automatically, whenever applicable. The teleports are activated by right-clicking your trinkets.
All of the above functions consume trinkets:
  • Each item type (bones or hides) picked up and noted per kill consumes 1 trinket. So 1 for each baby dragon, and 2 for each adult – including brutal green dragons and the KBD. This does not apply for the QBD.
  • Each baby dragon killed with a deathblow consumes 1, and each adult 2. The KBD and QBD cannot be instantly killed with trinkets.
  • The additional Slayer XP consumes 1 per dragon, with the exception of brutal greens (3), the KBD (10) and the QBD (15). Slayer XP given is relative to the power of the dragon killed.
  • All teleports consume 5 trinkets.
This weekend's your best chance to load up on dragon trinkets – open those chests, and tool up for your next dragon slaying adventure!
 
*Not available on Ironman accounts.
**That's green, blue, red and black dragons – both baby and adult – as well as the King Black Dragon and Queen Black Dragon.

It all depends on how much Slayer xp per kill, I suppose. And I'm sure the dragon bots will make use of them <_<.

So attempting to teleport to dragons on an F2P world will give a cool but harmless little "glitch" of your player doing the teleport emote and then being sent straight back down. Ascension rejected!

So Thalers are 1 per 5 minutes normally and 1 per minute during spotlight.

 

Guess its gonna be chasing spotlight all the way for efficiency.

 

Good look at some prices though:

120 Granite Body

150 Fighter Torso

150 Penance Skirt

40 Runner Boots

60 Penance Gloves

 

3355 Detailed Armour Set

7475 Profound Helm

12650 Profound Body

9200 Profound Legs

9200 Profound Shield

9200 Profound Sword

 

240 Void helms

300 Void robes

175 void gloves

175 deflector

400 jessikas sword

 

145 sacred clay helm

180 Seers, Archer, Warrior and Zerker imbued.

 

'Limited edition' was all the skill outfits at 360 a piece.

 

So 795 Hours of spotlighted Thaler gameplay for full profound which is exactly the same as time taken to get it via cwars assuming 100% win rate. So Thalers deffo should save some time overall since they aren't bound to winning. A lot of the other rewards that they aren't playing the OMG DONT RUIN TRIM game with seems a bit over priced though - I mean 5 hours for 1 void robe piece? It's possible to get full superior elite void body legs gloves and 3 helms in around 20 hours.

So 6 hours for a 1% bonus...meaning it would work out to what, 600 hours of said skill to make up that time, if you throw away minigame benefits? It's a nice niche or something to do I suppose, but I feel like it's setting the bar a little high.
