Slayer Belt – RuneLabs Update

Recommended Posts

Slayer Belt – RuneLabs Update
 
Be prepared for every encounter with the slayer belt – one of the first ideas chosen from RuneLabs.
 
Proposed by Dragonsseed, the slayer belt expands the tool belt you know and love with new slots. These hold specialist slayer equipment – such as a rock hammer, fungicide or the Ouroboros pouch – so you'll always have the right tool to strike a killing blow.
 
Previously consumable or charge-limited items added to the belt will become unlimited, too – never worry about running out again!
 
You can also spend slayer points to add the bonecrusher, charming imp, seedicide and herbicide to the belt, saving you time and keeping your inventory clear.
 

 
What's on the Belt?
 
These items can now be added straight to the tool belt:
 
  • Rock hammer
  • Slayer bell
  • Crystal chime (either version)
  • Ouroboros pouch (unlimited once added)
Note that slayer items that need to be wielded or equipped cannot be added to the tool belt.
 
There are several new items to obtain, which act as replacements for your consumable slayer items. You can add these to the tool belt and use them indefinitely, with no need to recharge or refill:
 
  • Salt bag: buy a salt shaker from any slayer master.
  • Icy water: buy an ice shaker from any slayer master.
  • Fungicide: buy a fungicide shaker from any slayer master.
  • Fishing explosive: buy an explosive shaker from any slayer master.
  • Super fishing explosive: buy a super explosive flask from any slayer master, then fill it with 100 rubium ore.
Monsters that must be killed with slayer items now all have on-click options to do so. These work whether the necessary item is on your tool belt or in your inventory.
 
For 500 slayer points each, you can unlock the ability to add the following to the slayer belt:
 
  • Bonecrusher
  • Charming imp
  • Seedicide
  • Herbicide

So the 1000 cap for the event is still there but we can now "train" agility without a cap ? (let's not kid ourselves, that's what everyone does)

Between having people participate in something or having them do NOTHING for 40 minutes, which one do you think Jagex would go for :D ?

I stand corrected - I got 250 points for redoing it.

The runelabs updates would be much improved if Jagex didn't feel the need to pad the amount of time to complete the content to be roughly equivalent with a full sized content update (ie quest, minigame, etc). These runelab ideas were supposed to be smaller. Making it so it takes a few weeks and up of moderate play to experience the content fully is completely unnecessary.

 

That said the toolbelt was still a great idea. I'm glad it was added.

Error messages on World Event group sessions now give players more guidance.

Good idea, now I'll try and see if I can manage to start a group :D.

I seem to have the same problem after beating tusks the second time, even though I think I wouldn't have reached the 100% reward cap in the old system yet...

As if people doing slayer these days even kill those outdated and obsolete monsters anymore. Still boggles the mind that this update was voted for in Runelabs. This is sort of what happens when you let noobs vote in Runelabs.  It's completely useless, aside from saving an inventory spot or two (Bonecrusher, Charming Imp, Herbicide, Seedicide). So I guess it saves 3 inventory spots, though practically most people only ever really use the Bonecrusher and Charming Imp.

 

Also it becomes apparent with each week how hollow the Ninja team has become. Most of them have left/quit (there's been an unusually large number of J Mods who left Jagex this year), and each week despite this 'less frequent updates, but larger ones and Ninja weeks', we get pretty bad Ninja notes that are worse than when we had more frequent updates.

It was entirely voted for because of the bonecrusher/herbicide/seedicide/charming imp toolbelt feature and you know it.

The thing is though, they said that wouldn't be included when it was polled, or when it was in RuneLabs.

Implying that your vote is more important because you've already surpassed low level content. Nice.

 

News flash: not everything has to cater to your wants or needs.

Why not just delete those slayer tools all together.  Isn't that what adding them to the toolbelt essentially does?

Yeah, most of the monsters themselves are pretty awful even for their intended audience. And the prices, too... 50K for a permanent salt bag? Is that some kind of joke? What strange alternate universe are they living in where that price is anything but insulting?

Rune platebody and a nice supply of food...or a bag of some salt. Decisions, decisions!

 

They probably want to make it an "investment" and I kind of understand where they are coming from with the price but it's some sort of attempt to squeeze GP from players who don't have a whole lot to spare at those levels. Maybe make it tiered costs with Slayer level or something.
