[2-2-15] Demon Flash Mobs – New Rewards and Rebalancing

Recommended Posts

Demon Flash Mobs – New Rewards and Rebalancing

Demon Flash Mobs are brimstone-fresh today, with improved rewards and balancing. With aggressive combat familiars, demonic titles and much more up for grabs, it well worth your while to answer the flash mob call to arms.
Read on to find out more!


Baleful Balancing
First up, we've made battling the demon bosses a less punishing prospect. They’re no pushovers, and you’ll still need to team up to take them out, but the risks should now be more in line with the rewards:

  • Flash mob bosses' health and defence have been reduced.
  • Stuns applied by bosses' attacks now last only a third as long.
  • Healing applied to the bosses has been halved.
  • Bleed effects inflicted by demon flash mobs can now be cleared with the Freedom ability.
  • Bosses no longer cause bonus prayer damage against players using the Protect Item prayer.

Note that demon flash mobs now spawn every two hours, rather than hourly.

Wicked Rewards
There are dark delights aplenty on offer for those who take down a flash mob boss, including a number of new additions:

  • Aggressive Combat Familiars: loot a demon claw from the boss and – with 82 Summoning - make a brawler, executioner or deacon demon summoning pouch. These beasts are aggressive, so as long as you’re in combat, they’ll continually attack enemies of the type you’re currently engaged with – even if you’re not actively fighting yourself. They also have an AoE special attack.
  • Demonic Titles: get the infernal honorific you deserve with title scrolls, obtained as drops from flash mob bosses. There are 14 titles to collect in all.

Finally, we’ve ensured that a boss always yields enough loot for at least five players. If fewer than five players contribute to a boss's downfall, the excess loot will be divided among them.


Enjoy!
Have fun taking down some fiery foes and reaping some rich rewards. Let us know what you think over on the forums.

Yeah, this should have been the title update. The only thing even remotely interesting in this update.

Titlescape is always neat, and those familiars sound promising. I will try this thing out before I write off this update.

 

The patch notes, aside from that one pretty awesome fix, was very bare though.

Entering a bank PIN into the Companion App should no longer take you to the bank instead of the page you were trying to access.

YES YES YES TIMES 1000, that was so annoying.

Very nice, you can even show free worlds only! Now, if only they could have added one more column for ping...

Demons are now ridiculously fast and easy kills.  Couple that with 2 hour spawns...

 

:\

 

Love the hop update though.

I used to do the demons every now and then when I was bored.  They definitely needed a rework.  The average drop was 30k or something lol.  It was fun that they were hard to kill but it also ruined any chance at profitability really.

[spoiler=Deg Site Quest Spoiler] Another part of Deg's quest came out with this update. Can trade the ruined essence for a creepy doll by using it on Brother Celerity in the edgeville monastery

 

Called it lol:

Has anyone tried giving it to a demon flash mob boss or a character related to them(the one in edge monastery)? That's my guess anyway.

The other possibility is that it's not even released yet and will come with flash mobs update.

I wonder if all this is a lead up to World Event 3(the next big update by that scrum team) or will that only be the next piece of the big picture. Perhaps it has something to do with the 'strange power' event and f61 as the doll can be used to replicate the event on a smaller scale?

Not that I know of, people just tend to check around after Deg is involved in an update

Seems from that like they are just fun easter egg items than elaborate hidden plotline items.  But we'll see I guess.

Anyone think that there's any chance of normal familiars ever getting a way to act aggressively like these new ones?

 

It'd be great if having the new drops in your inventory/pocket made a steel titan for example go rampaging on everything.

But only if you wear it while standing on top of Seren with three pieces of papyrus in your inventory.
