Future Update Discussions

Recommended Posts

A new TH promotion for this weekend...Astromancer's outfit, lets you unlock outfit pieces and banners with regard to factions by allocating tokens. Oh and you can call down a meteor from the sky a certain number of times.

 

It seems like they did it about right this time. Relevant content and nothing too overpowered.

They split the group chat into group group chat and group team chat?

 

Speaking of which, a friend and I tried to use that system to do the World Event yesterday. After around 10 minutes we abandoned it, hopped over, and did the event normally in a random group. This might sound like a crazy idea but making the group system work would be a better tweak.

 

The only other thing I see in there is Goblin Raids appearing as a news event and more XP milestones for friends, maybe grouping them as their own toggle down under the broadcast rather than a game message? That would be a nice improvement.

You can't see player announcements from people on your ignore list maybe?

I think it is more like the total EXP announcement. The Chat denotes 3.5 million exp., but I do not think it was before.

Different font sizes was another project they were working on, wasn't it?

Was part of the same thing.

 

Font size wasn't an issue when I had a 17in monitor running at 1280*1024, but when I'm playing on a 23in screen, its bloody hard to read.

I look forward to the billion total xp announcements update a lot. I am not that terrible far away from the 1B mark and it would be cool to broadcast it to my friends and the world I am on :).

And to hit 5,2B should definitely be broadcasted globally. It is a HUGE achievement.

T90 tank armor confirmed from raids.

 

Raids confirmed DOA.

 

They need to remove typeless damage from the game in order to make tank armor worthwhile

Or let tank armour have some kind of soak effect for damage reduction.

Which is kind of what everyone wanted tank armor to have since before there even was tank armor

Power armor has 5% less soak than tank. Thank needs a lot more, and power armor needs none

soak effect

 

God no.

 

Soak didn't work before. Why would it work this time? The values were all [bleep]ed up, there was no effective implementation across tiers, and it was just flat out unnecessary to the function of tanks.

 

 

Actually I disagree. Soak worked brilliantly in pre-eoc with Ganodermics. It suddenly became the way to go to use as magic armour. It was for example, ideal for fight caves versus Jad for those who couldn't really do it due to lag or ping issues. Furthermore it still had a hefty Magic attack bonusses to be comparable although it was still outclassed by Virtus of course. Next to that, due to the ease of accessing it, it wasn't that expensive. A couple of million at that time.

 

If the new armour would have a hefty soaking ability/set effect, it could be actually usable for a lot of bossing and thus a valued asset to the game.

Making things easier is not necessarily good for the game. In the current case of armor, it's really not necessary. Tweak in between tiers to balance powerlevel, but making everything easier across the board does not help in the long run.

Part of that might be that every other piece of armor had a completely negligible soak score

I am hypothesizing that jagex is using raids as a means to push their pvm to new levels. I called and expected jagex to bring the likes of nex and vorago with multiple phases. Now i think jagex is bringing us a piece of content involving fights with multiple stages with different phases each.

Thanks again to ItsSuity on reddit for supplying a TL;DR of the sttream:

 

Q&A + Addy/Rune Dragons

 

 

Edgeville Monastery:

 

Da67jml.jpg

3EQ4nSo.jpg

Concept art is two years old

Something they might do in the future

Signature Heroes

Not going to see much of the Raptor this year

Heroes will probably feature again soon

Adding a grim gem to the slayer helm is possible but will be a pain

The Dukes team will do the high level mobs RuneLabs update

Bringing back RSC style 'duel anywhere' right click option (safe deaths)

Won't make spawn rates static like OSRS

Scaling spawns are a good thing

Will instead increase the base spawn rate and let it scale better

Tweet ninja team to let them know where spawn rates are too slow

New GWD maybe next year

Ninja team will be updating guilds in the future

 

 

Raids:

T90 tank gear with set effects

Tradeable and non tradeable versions (like Ports)

Mod Phillip will be making a Twitter account to release NTX pictures/updates

 

 

piPad:

 

Northern Entrance to Shilo Village

One way entrance to avoid nature running is their preferred choice

 

 

Adamant/Runite Dragons:

 

- Adamant Dragons screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/OZ5ZI (8 images)

- Rune Dragons screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/4NuK9 (5 images)

Locations

- Addy: Brimhaven Dungeon

- Rune: World Gate

Gain 10k FM XP for discharging dragonfire on the mural in Brimhaven (Mural in Kethsi as well)

No Comp reqs

70, 80, 90 Slayer rooms for Adamant dragons

Reqs for rune dragons

- Ritual of the Mahjarrat

- Fate of the Gods

Drop two addy bars/one rune bar

Early bird bonus increasing:

- Slayer task frequency

- Spawn rate

- Elite spawn chance

Can kill off-task

Only elites drop boot upgrades off task

Non-elites only drop boot upgrades on task

All other drops remain unchanged by slayer task

Single way aggression

Non-instanced

Slayer assignment

- Addy: Kuradal (25-30) and Morvran (30-40)

- Rune: Morvran (50-75)

Increasing the KC for mithril dragon assignments (Kuradal: 30-35; Morvran 30-50)

High resistances to everything except dragonbane

Small use for the anti dragon shield in terms of mechanics

Shield + Super Anti will not give 100% protection

Access to a Kethsi resembling outfit via some rune dragon drops

Rune dragons have three phases

- Phase one requires dbane to break their armour

Bones

Adamant dragon bones (40XP more than Ourg bones)

Rune dragon bones (10XP more than Frost dragon bones)

Elite Rune dragons have better drops and unique drops

Kethsi ring (5) (Teleportation and damage boost)

T90 Power Boots

Rune dragons drop attachments for Galcor boots (Tradeable)

- Steadfast scales (makes Emberkeen boots)

- Glaiven wing-tips (makes Flarefrost boots)

- Ragefire glands (makes Hailfire boots)

Requires two attachments per upgrade

Degrade back to Glacor boots losing the attachment unless you keep it repaired

Same duration as T90 gloves
