[1-9-15] Balthazar's Big Raffle

Recommended Posts

Balthazar's Big Raffle

 

Roll up, roll up – unique prizes to be had by the barrel in Balthazar's Big Raffle!

 

Log in each day and collect tickets for some unique prizes – including Golden Barrows armour. Collect Rummage Tokens, too, for a big blowout at the end of the month.

 

Also, if you're a fan of custom cosmetics, rejoice – we've upped the Keepsake limit to 30.

 

Read on to find out more!

 

How to Play

 

Balthazar's Big Raffle is members-only content, and is not accessible to Ironman players.

 

Balthazar will be by the Burthorpe lodestone each day for the whole of September, handing out tickets – one per day.

 

You can get an extra ticket each day by completing a daily challenge, or finding Gilly Willikers the clown. He can be found capering around Misthalin and Asgarnia's lodestones – it's up to you to hunt him down.

 

Each ticket – when handed in – is a shot at the rare, limited edition prize of the day. If you don't strike it lucky, a consolation prize - a small prismatic star per non-winning ticket - will be yours instead. Awesome if you're getting prepped for Double XP Weekend later in the month!

 

You can save up tickets if there's a particular prize you've got your eye on, or have a punt each day – the choice is yours.

Throughout September, you’ll also get a Rummage token for every 5 tickets you hand in (cumulatively – not necessarily all at once). You can use these from 1st October, when Balthazar’s Bargain Barrel Blowout begins.

 

Hand them in - any time in October - and you'll get to rifle through Balthazar's Bargain Barrel, which can yield coins, skilling resources, small protean packs, D&D reset tokens, medium prismatic lamps, or the much-coveted Golden Akrisae Barrows set.

 

The tokens also get you a pieces of a clown outfit – as sported by Gilly himself. There are five pieces of the outfit to collect.

 

Enjoy!

 

Balthazar's Big Raffle provides a daily, digestible slice of RuneScape, even in a busy September. Have fun, and head over to the forums to give us your thoughts.

Patch notes are out as well (though they don't link to it). I find it strange that ironmen cannot participate in some of these event, but can in similar events (christmas raffle for example). Though I don't care that much as now I don't feel the need to log in every day and do this :3

Added patch notes. Also, if you try handing in last year's tickets at the raffle, you have been warned!

Considering the darts won't work on Vorago or raids bosses, there isn't much point in getting them.. At least for me, imho.

 

I'll be putting my tickets in for golden Barrows for sure

Darts are 3 free KK or Nex drops. They were the highest expected value of a given prize for it's rarity last time around. Looks the same this time too.

 

The 5 large protean packs is 1500 protean items. Towards a million exp whole used that you can divide out. Sounds nice.

 

Gold Warpriest > Gold Barrows. Warpriest was still a super viable prize even if you were high level.

 

 

"Crystallise can no longer be cast on box traps in any of Mieliki's hunter portals."

 

Big Chinchompa, Aug, 28, 2012-Sep, 1, 2015 RIP.

 

Yet all the other Grenwall spots are still super broken exp and were possibly even better than the private grounds to begin with. Jamflex balancing at its finest. Can't say I'm surprised they did the same thing with protean traps when they were released too.

Finally added back the jewellery teleport from action bar.... Changed it half way through some pray training I was doing and it was a pain in the ass.

Welp. That tiny buff that onslaught received just got reverted. Dome shield also got nerfed too. It is almost like they don't want people to use the combat spells/curses.

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

Funny thing is, does anyone actually use them ?

 

I find them quite underwhelming if nothing else ...

I think one of them is useful at KK. The rest are 100% worthless.

I actually managed to get 4 tickets on my alt with that ticket bug shortly after the update. :')

 

Basically, those who had already logged in today before the update couldn't claim tickets, and I hadn't logged in on my alt at all, so I went and claimed my ticket. Shortly after they added a hotfix so that everyone could claim tickets again, so I assume they just made it so EVERYONE could claim tickets again. I'm not complaining. :D

I think ironmen weren't barred from the christmas event because it didn't have the kinds of prizes that the normal raffles have, like complete armor sets or darts

Hoping for Karil's or Torag's sets the most... In a related question, do 2H crossbows override shieldbows? It seems like they should or would, but the animations for def abilities would be odd.

Intercept still works for Onslaught though?

So I won the darts this raffle, went to the KK for the first time ever, and first drop got off-hand drygore rapier.  I'll call that a win :)

 

Not that they needed to be anything, but the next two were shark drops.
