We didn't need a barn. What we really needed was a slaughter house. Just imagine it, you could make a new high tier food from dragon meat with vanilla or strawberry milk.

Storage barm for animals is WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too small even after it having 30 spots.

Make it, so people can store at least male and female of each breed of the animal.(Noahs ark yadayadaya...) The way it is right now annoying, because half of your animals are in the bank and half of them are in the barm. I'm not sure how many unique breeds of animals there are not including the shinies but multiply it by 2 and add that as the barm space.


There is literally no reason to keep ONE animal of each breed after you completed the respective collection and you've got a setup, which is able to breed shinies every once in a while. Not even to speak of a pair of each breed.


There's no reason for YOU to have male and female of each breed at the ready. Just because you don't play like that doesn't mean that some people would not benefit from it. I want to breed any kind of animal when I want to and for that you need male and female of their respective species for the highest chance. If a clanmate/friend/stranger wants a specific animal I can breed it and sell it to them. As others have mentioned, the cap on the item count in the barm is abitrary and it would cost nothing to increase it.

So how about you mind your own bussiness and let people give feedback on what they would like improved.

Overall, as a casual farmer, I don't really see an benefit from this update. I guess I can save up beans and buy the farmhands eventually, but this honestly just feels like more junk I need to save up beans for.
Also, I found a bug. I reported it in-game.
Very lackluster updated. I'm disappointed. It feels like patch notes got hyped up as a full scale update. Now a real quality of life update would be making animals poop less and eat less. Or let us scoop up poop faster. Or let us have a few more animals in each pen. It's not like they won't fit and the other farmers around Gielinor cram em in the pens. Or just scrap this whole animal buyer daily rotation and let me sell what animals I want when I want to. Baby shakes is like throwing them away. You're better off using the contract rotation and being patient unless I'm missing something. Wouldn't have minded something for making, managing and storing mush too. And speaking of mush, fix the fill trough menu already. Through the menu you can only add 60 of something at a time for no reason. You're forced to use the item manually and type in 1k.

And in other news my Google chrome is marking the runescape site as not secure today and warns me I should not enter sensitive information on this site (for example, passwords or credit cards), because it could be stolen by attackers.

Okay let's reduce it: Spiders and Sheep are independent of their parents - araxytes breed araxytes - the reminder just depends on the season and whether it's day or night. That's already 10 (times 2) animals you're hoarding without reason. Since shinies (except araxytes) do not help to help to breed more shinies that another 8 (times 2) senselessly hoarded animals, which would not help with your breeding master plan. In the case of dragons it even would've been detrimental at some point btw.

So what would remain: 6 rabbits (ignoring the fact everyone should have common browns and they breed fast enough that the combination cottontail + creme would be sufficient), 5 chickens (since you obviously won't be able to obtain a pair), 14 chins (actually justfied since those can only breed in their own species), 2 sheep, 4 spiders, 8 zygos, 5 cows (as with chickens), 4 yaks and 8 dragons (sorta justfied since they can't breed into inferior breeds without crossbreeding).

And well - there are pens you could keep animals as well. It's not like you not to stockpile every single one of them at once.

Thanks for the extra bank space in the form of the animal barn, but please Jagex, while you're at it, why not just give all paying members all the bank boosters for free? Since they're already paying for the game & other P2P games have given maximum storage space without MTX & your game can handle it (otherwise you wouldn't be offering it even for extra payment), there's no need for you to charge extra for bank space.

In fact, it'd be a display of goodwill, which would increase player satisfaction and thus increase membership sales! > )


Are you ever happy with what Jagex does anymore? I sincerely doubt it.
Oh, I almost forgot.

What's wrong with giving free bank space handouts?

I know spiders are independent of their parents, except araxytes. I keep pair of those at ready to trade, then i gradually replenish them, since it can be timely to get them. Shiny animals I do not keep at all and I do not use them for breeding. Sheep I have the same way as you suggest, except I keep a pair of black sheep, as they're unreliable to get. So that's spiders. 2 pairs of sheep (one black pair one colored) Male and Female of every Chin, Yak and Dragon (Royals I don't keep), 5 chicken and 5 cows.

But let's say I exclude the sheep and spiders, and only include those which you considered optimal setup. That's still 56 spaces. Almost twice what you can store in the upgraded barn. (30) Still not enough, is it?

It's a small change worth minimal dev effort. Add a tier upgrade for barn space for which you pay higher price each time and you need to own previous tiers to be able to purchse it. Unlocking the higher tier would give you +15 storage space each time. So at tier 5 you'd have +75 barn storage spaces in total.

Lets not dispute based on personal preferences. I'm sure that in the end we both just want the game to get better and more enjoyable for people who play it.

Current added storage is inadequate for what it is and I'd rather bring up the issue while the topic is still hot.

Thanks for pointing out the potential redundancy in my setup, but even with yours it is not enough barn space. Cheers, mate. Thanks for your feedback.


I hope this issue will get addressed by Jagex.

Nothing is wrong with it, but it's not feasible anymore. Jagex has repeatedly said it taxes server stuff since every player would have more bankspace, meaning that much more loading each and every item.

As for paid bankspace being free, I'm technically not against it, but I have to admit, it makes them money, keeps them afloat, and isn't terribly a popular idea (could be better, but I digress).
