Do you keep the progress in your tasks when you reset?

 

For instance do i need to reset to be able to get the last 3 chests i need?

 

or are there 50 that are accessible regardless of which gang you joined?

Ok, so you don't need to reset to get all chests. Each gang has the same number of chests and they're linked, so if you open one the other will also be open if you go through next time. Also, resetting the quest lets you keep all your items and task completion. So if you shoo one cat, that cat will remain shoo'd and if you open a chest it remains open.

So somebody has opened the Mystery Gift.

As expected, it's Chromatic partyhat.

Except it's literally sitting upside-down on your head.

Do overrides count for the Demon Slayer/Castle portions? That would have been handy to know way sooner.

Keeping the coloured mists, decoder strips and code key on me, as well as some fire, earth, cosmic and nature runes.

 

Yeah they do

With the Agrith shrotcut you seem to be able to skip all fighting you do as actual you as well, which eases need for inventory items.

 

I worked out so far you need:

Lockpick or Keycode

Vial of Blood

2 Vials Red Mist

Vial Orange

Vial Purple

3 Tin

4 Fire runes

1 Nature Rune

Ring of Life

Cabbage

Rotten Tomato

Beer

Decoder

Black Mushroom

 

Hair of Dog and Sacred Oil and Dwellberries need to be picked up each run through.

10-12 raw meat might be doable on invent, not worked it out.

 

 

I'm told that the code doesn't change each runthrough, so you may not need the decoder strips.

 

Edit: Actually that'd mean you don't need the tin/tin head/superheat runes either, wouldn't it?

Obtained quest cape and base 92 before obtaining any 99s! Currently finishing out my 99s with the (long-distant) goal of comp cape.

I hate redoing quests as a game mechanic. It's basically made quests into pseudo-skills/grinding. That's not the point of quests.

Missed a chest. RQ life.

Quest is decent, frustrating, but decent

There are some people in world 79 near west bank currently lending t20s for the elite achievment. There is a line. Felt like queuing at the DMV for a comp cape license.  -_-

Probably the same guy who lent to me. Pretty chuffed about people lending instead of trying to sell for 200k fakecoins :')

Wow [bleep]ing terrible rewards.

 

and lemmeshutthedoor on the inb4lore crowd. I am not doing 4 new quests. I am doing 4 quests that have already been done. RFD was a masterpiece. Before RFD, people used ice gloves for like everything, iirc?

 

Oh wow cool now I'll definitely use varrock armor for mining... rly jagex, rly.

 

rly

The replay mechanic was advertised as a cool feature, but after replaying three times it feels like excuse content - since they didn't make anything more than shortened, reskinned versions of the original four. Like hey, we realized that the quest(s) are actually pretty short and 70% copy-pasted, so you can replay them so the update seems bigger!

Rewards were unimaginative. XP lamps always scream we-couldn't-think-of-anything to me. Tasks set rewards useless. Cosmetics, except for Arrav, pretty bad (oh yay I can't wait to show off my cool black priest gown replacements to people). Darklight reward is the only thing that grabbed my attention as being "worth it."

Would've been more interesting (and obvious...I thought) to have Dimension gear and/or weapons a la RFD gloves/kitchen weapons.
Would've also liked to see a more diverse pathway to obtaining the chromatic party hat rather than grindscape slap-on requirement of 200k. Granted, it isn't as long to obtain as other things in RS.

On the plus side, however... The most fun I had with the new dimension was exploring the environment unrelated to the quests - funny easter eggs and clever dialogues with Pauline Polaris, seeing Solomon in the bottle, et cetera. They did that humor immersion stuff very well. Tiny Zemo was really cute and funny. Other random things like the titles of the books in the bookcases were well done. They should keep that up. Quest dialogues making fun of themselves were enjoyable.

I'm starting to think that Jagex just does better with parody and small-scale personal drama than high fantasy epics. Whoever wrote this thing was clearly having fun with it and, for me at least, the dialogue more than made up for the underwhelming rewards and mechanics (seriously, that Zemouregal fight was just... Bleh).

 

Also that override for Arrav's sword is beautiful.

OH YEAH.

 

I remember now...

 

Well anyways, this quest is all worth it because of Pauline got locked up for her crimes against humanity. I stood there for like 15 minutes, just like, gloating. From afar.

Ha, yeah I loved the cat based lovecraftian sidequest. Fitting in more than one sense, since cats feature prominently in lovecraft's own stories.

 

That is not dead which can eternal meow, and with strange eons even death may die nine times

 

Kek'd heartily at that one.

Just Recomped, so the nightmare is over. Took me two tries to get it all done.

 

A few thoughts:

 

-Lame rewards for a supposedly landmark quest

-Replayability for quests is bad and tedious

-Nothing like RFD, which it is supposedly be to be modeled after. RFD was well written, had a good plot, was exciting, had interesting boss fights, and a host of supremely useful and fitting rewards.

-Had various things in it which are meant only to troll players, and if you aren't super careful, you could find yourself having to repeat the quest several times. It actually punishes early bird players - the people who waited, and got the down low from all their friends were able to avoid having to do numerous replays.

 

Totally fail quest.

 

I actually like quests, or used to, but this one and the needlessly annoying puzzle during the last one have started to change my mind on these things.

 

P.S. Also, Tim is a godsend, walked me through a bunch of this stuff, unsolicited.
