Recommended Posts

Not happy with the queueing fix- and really suffering as I relied on it so much. Pretty sure it's gonna be a while before my Nex solos/Vorago kills are anywhere near as fast as they were pre-update. :wall:

 

(As for barb fishing dropping now being 1041341341x easier? Brb 99 fishing)

What makes barb fishing faster now?

I assume the lp bonuses for this would remain

Doubt it, they specifically said only top end armours (nex, pop and the t90s) would have any lp bonuses.

Superior void doesn't even come close to be that top end.

It probably requires more time to get (and upgrade) than some higher-end sets, and has worse defense stats than Adamant.

The way they changed it means you can drop your entire inventory of leaping fish in 2-3 seconds by holding a key from your action bar.

hotkey dropping also restarts the fishing process automatically after it resolves

Barbarian fishing to level 99, nub? Do it the real way and get it by fishing rockies like me :p

Also: Good update, though not really aimed at my tier. T52 armour, level 75 weapon? For all that work? Nty.

Interesting finds...

 

Runestream cloak - given to players who are streamers. They are obtained with a code.

I'm skeptical to say the least.

 

Where else did you hear about the cloak, Urza?

Is it me or 350 commendations for an T75 offhand is a bit of an overkill ...

 

Assuming veteran and 2 minutes per game - that's like 3 hours to get. And Zamorakian Spear is sitting there for less than 4m.

IMO it should just have been obtained as a reward for the quest alongside Korasi's and re-buyable for 250k if lost.

i'm more surprised that jessika had anything like a sword

 

*reads*

 

oh, well that's just a second korasi's blade, isn't it game

 

I wonder if it'll boost the special attack or anything

At first reading the patch notes I thought the ability queuing meant they fixed the thing with Concentrated Blast.

Then I tried Pest Control out a few games.

My thresholds would be "queued" but might not even fire off until the portal was already dead, at which point they would just stop glowing and be canceled.

What is this shit? What exactly was intended to be fixed??

I think they wanted to lower the damage output we have, to "fix" the game for legacy. -.-

The reasoning behind their fix was good, but they forgot that when people queued abilities it wasn't always straight after their previous ability fired off L

 

They made it so the ability would fire off exactly 3 ticks after you queued it(provided the ability is off cooldown), so if you queue it when you have 1 tick left on its cooldown, then you have to wait 3 ticks instead of 1.

 

When queuing abilities, the cooldown was meant to be 3 ticks, but abusing the queuing glitch made it so the ability fired off after 2 ticks.

The way they made it means that if you use your abilities the way you would have used them when using the glitch, then the ability would fire off after 3 ticks like normal.

 

However they forgot that many people queued their abilities at various different times, not right after firing off an ability to abuse the bug.

 

 

So basically all the fix does is prevent people from abusing ability queuing glitch while also screwing over every other legitimate user. =D>

This makes me not even want to play at the moment. It may not sound that bad at first glance, but to someone who primarily does combat, it certainly is.

 

I have the most fun when I'm slaying at what I believe to be my fastest. Since picking up Ranged, I've also begun doing a rotation at most Slayer monsters where it's possible:

Basics -> Death's Swiftness -> Basics (probably kills 2-3 Abyssal Demons or Dark Beasts, for example) -> Shadow Tendril (usually 1-hit kill) -> Snapshot (also 1-hit) | Rapid Fire (after Swiftness) -> Basic -> Snapshot -> Basics -> Swiftness (repeat) |

Timed correctly, both those thresholds would be under the effects of Swiftness. This was difficult to do as I use Revolution for a compromise of convenience and that would already previously interfere with timing, meaning I just barely got off those thresholds before Swiftness ended.

Keeping up such a pace constantly is actually rather challenging, but felt rewarding knowing I could kill hundreds of the highest level Slayer monsters in an hour by putting in extra effort... And that's just it. High KPH should be a reward for the extra effort required.

 

The lag time now with thresholds means that after I have Swiftness active, I'll be able to get out one threshold at best under its duration, and possibly not even on the correct target, or not at full health of the target (massive overkill).

There are so many other areas that it will slow me down at now too. Too many to list. I don't know what "bug" they thought they were fixing but once again they're punishing everybody for what only a small group of people were doing.

for the record, it is possible to get commodore tyr to upgrade a superior normal void top/legs to a superior elite void top/legs (he has dialogue option for this), rather than needing to upgrade to elite first than patch it.

Yeah now I can't even spamclick my tresholds anymore, lets do ten autoattacks, five shitty basics then fire off the treshold.

 

woop dee doo nothing registers, everything out of sync. away with the ticksystem.
