How are the extra training points supposed to be given? My friend helped someone with their first 10 kbd kills and only got 10 points out of it. Is it even working properly?

Increased chance of rare drops and enhanced ring of wealth.


I was wondering about the specifics of the above perk. Increased chance of rare drops and enhanced row across the board, for anything we fight? Or only for slayer tasks?

And when you say "rare drops" do you mean the RDT or unique monster drops like Glacor boots, God armour & hilts from GWD, Sigils etc?

Also, could you please help resolve an argument about the Ring of Wealth:

Does it or does it not increase chance of access to the Rare drop table?

I don't believe it does simply because of the fact that my row has never ever shined once for a rdt drop.

Thanks, a reply from J Mod would be greatly appreciated.

Does "increased chances of rare drops" mean increased chances for RDT or say, leg pieces? 8~)

Aye, refer also to my questions a couple of posts above.

It would be nice if Jagex could be a little more specific sometimes. It would help us better understand and plan how to engage in such events.

I've heard of players getting double RDT drops since this weekend event started but it doesnt say anything about that above, unless that's what they mean by "increased chances of rare drops", in which case they should really have stated 'double Rare Drop Table drops', or something to that effect. Or is that what VIP slayer means?

P.S. Giant Mole got a drops buff during the Fally event not long ago. It would have been nice to give the Mole a rest and give some other monster a go.
