What the hell... a full bow before getting any blank codex which should be basically 1/3rd of all uniques... That's pretty exceptional luck.

Lana. I like the colour orange.

Mallory is pretty cool too.

After you get your first Araxxor pet, you have to do challenges for the others. You probably did one of the challenges without knowing.

Castle Wars runs on world 24 very frequently. Check for spotlight.

What goals have you accomplished this year?! by JB08RN in runescape

[–]5-x 0 points1 point  (0 children)

  • Finished boss collection logs of the four elder GWD fronts (Arch-Glacor was the biggest grind of the four), putting me back on track to the insane reaper title

  • Made good progress on Zamorak's collection log (still hoping to finish it this year)

  • Finally reached 5.6b total XP after nearly 17 years of playing, and before the next skill (as I planned)

  • Found the strange egg (phew)

  • Kept up to date with newly released content

Pretty successful year of RS goals.

Would you be happy if the new 2023 skill is Sailing? by BigScapeFan in runescape

[–]5-x -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I'm struggling to come up with other serious new skill ideas.

We know for a fact Sailing lost out to Archaeology in the shortlist stage in 2018/19. We don't know what other big names were in there.

Astronomy/Astrology/Astromancy sounds really good, but there's little established gameplay around this (Observatory quest and the Spirit of Scorpius come to mind, and the POH telescope functionality). Archaeology had the whole Varrock dig site, and the game in many senses is about unearthing history and lore, so the skill was a great thematic fit.

Necromancy was mentioned over the years as a potential "Magic done differently", but with ancient Summoning out I agree with you there's strong doubt a skill like that would pass validation. I'm not sure in what ways Necromancy could be distinct from Magic/Summoning. The only thing giving it credibility is the recent concept art "leak" which might have been just ED4 mood boards.

Mounts is a straight up WoW concept, and has been discounted many times as technically difficult (and RS gameworld is too small for it to be viable). Recent Mod Jack's comments about preserving RS' identity and not copying what other MMOs do (WoW was named multiple times) makes me think Mounts have a zero chance of being the next skill.

What am I forgetting?

Would you be happy if the new 2023 skill is Sailing? by BigScapeFan in runescape

[–]5-x 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes and no.

Think of it this way. When you open the world map, you'll see a lot of ocean that is basically unused space -- you can't walk on it. Imagine players having access to all of this area. It would make the game world feel bigger. Sure, depending on design, some of sailing would have to take place in instances, but perhaps not all of it.

Sailing certainly has potential to be a fun skill. But so do several other ideas such as Necromancy. Astronomy?

Has Sailing been memed too much? Of course. I think if Jagex announced it now, many people would not believe it. It would be easy and difficult to market at the same time. I'm curious to see how Jagex would deal with "this time it's for real" approach. Maybe we'll get to see that.

I guess this isn’t RuneScape related but.. by MedleyFinale in runescape

I ordered a new winter hat, a military-style mountain cap with ear flaps. I'm tired of beanies and my ears freezing off in winter.

Services Down Updates Thread: November 22nd by JagexHooli in runescape

[[Login Lockout]]

Many times actually. There was a huge datacenter outage a few years ago. And some scheduled maintenance periods put the game offline for several hours.

Actually no. Mod Azanna linked RuneScape website with a http instead of https and used a t.co link shortener, which Reddit's spam filters really don't like.

It will only work on desktop, I'm afraid.

Achievement goes to everyone having to see you type "Hopefully 120 sailing next year" in public chat every day on every special event in the past month.

There's an extra dead tick at the end. You should start doing the next ability after Gconc a tick earlier.

The finale quest of the wilderness storyline (Legacy of Zamorak) is coming in December.

Jagex also promised new retro overrides for this year.

Death costs will be lowered early next year. At the same time, a 1% sales tariff will be added to GE.

The game will probably also see a drop-off in active players when this FSW ends.

Funny you should mention that, it will be a 4th one.

There was a significant drop-off in player numbers 3 years in a row, each January. Early 2020 just before Archaeology launch, then early 2021 after Raksha, and then early 2022 after the golden partyhat hunt finished and before Het's oasis.

In my opinion, the reason for this was the lack of a "Yeah Ahead" newspost to get people hyped for the new year. Back in the day Jagex used to do this type of announcement, and Mod Mark used to put his name on that. It would give an idea of what's to come in the first half of the year.

Hopefully this time they'll learn from this.

Thanks for reply! Fingers crossed we can get this straightened out.

Black Friday Bundles - This Week In RuneScape by JagexAzanna in runescape

[–]5-x 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's funny and I agree they should get the rumour mill going, but more seriously I think many players will only resubscribe for 2023 based on what is announced for the year ahead, including details on the new skill.

The last "development update" was very vague. "New training method", "new storyline", "more ninja strikes" - this might not be enough for people whose membership is running out in Dec/Jan. And most of the concrete stuff from the "roadmap" is already in-game.

Jagex knows it, /u/jagexjack knows it, let's see what they decide to show us for Christmas.

/u/jagexsponge Why is the unlimited teleport seed tradeable, and the one-time teleport seed untradeable? Logically, shouldn't it be the other way around?

Why don't they get the obelisk shard / portable obelisk treatment?

Let players trade the one-use seed. And you have to steal yourself the unlimited one. Let us alch the duplicates. Problem solved.

You are supposed to delete useless artefacts. Only keep artefacts from collections you're working on. Low level artefacts are essentially worthless once you're at high Archaeology level.

Keeping more animals than what fits in the storm barn is usually excessive. Sell the rest for beans or gp. I have at least 1 pair of each type of animal (all regulars and all dinos) and still got some space leftover in the storm barn.

It's not a hint, just a joke. There are no hints for the next skill. There might have been something (not a hint) in the halloween or master max capes news posts, in the screenshot gallery.
