That, and the fact that they once again went back on their word with the dailyscape thing. It just makes me question whether the "comp cape rework" that was advertised on the 2019 introduction is really going to happen or not, because some years ago, Mod Osborne had already laid out a pretty solid plan, "comp - statement of intent", making guidelines on how comp reqs should be handled and what to do with existing reqs, but it was just dropped and completely forgotten about, just like dailyscape reductions seem to be now.

Idk about comp, but dailyscape reduction seems to be forgotten.

You're welcome! > )

Personally I think it could've been fine to have Rimmington as an alternative starting location; I remember when me and my IRL friends used to roleplay living on various locations across Runescape all those years ago (IIRC around the time when Runescape HD was still new), and Rimmington + the farm south of Falador were our favorites. Lumbridge is iconic now of course, but the other two places we found pretty cozy too.

It was the 18th birthday special livestream that took place yesterday; at first they showed some memorable RS videos on Youtube, and then the Gowers and Ash joined Shauny on the couch.

Ok, cheers! I remember when I used world map to navigate to the fishing spots near Rimmington church and trained fishing, woodcutting, firemaking, cooking, and combat there. I met Anja for the first time shortly after that. It was in late 2005. Good times!

Hmm, so this is a funny thing; Santa Vorkath hasn't been giving me anything of worth, but I managed to get a new personal best time that's under 1 minute, without even trying (I was killing him as usual and almost missed the message entirely).



I already had one before as you can see, which was achieved by actually trying, but the thing is, it already requires crazy RNG even if you properly try to get a sub-minute kill, and when you're "casually" killing Vorkath, it's close to impossible, because not only is your accuracy a lot worse because you don't use special attacks to lower his defense, but you also don't risk attacking Vorkath during the poison phase which further reduces dps. I was quite literally hitting around 75 with each and every hit but didn't think much of it during the kill.

A guy on Youtube actually made a lengthy explanation on this if you're interested:

Kinda ironic though that he didn't manage to get it. > )

Yo, man! There is something cool that you still need to do before we can accept your thread. Read the instructions on page 1 of this thread and fill in an application. Cheers!

So previous kill was 2:12 and the next kill 0:55 with the same amount of trying? :o

Yeah, because even with BiS gear and max stats, your accuracy is far from 100% and the damage range you can inflict is so high that the average hit you do deal is only half of your max hit, since all values in that range have an equal chance of being used:

79.58% accuracy
74 max hit/37 average hit (or 85 max hit/42.5 average hit with diamond bolt proc)
10.294 DPS

From DPS alone, if you could damage Vorkath all the time, your average kill speed would be roughly 73 seconds (1:13) with those stats. But like was explained during the video, during ice phase you can't damage Vorkath at all, and during poison phase you only deal half the damage (if you even bother trying due to the risk), so in reality your DPS and average kill speed will be slightly worse if you include the whole fight and not just the parts where you can damage him as normal.

Based on my personal experience, the true average kill speed with those stats (casually, so no defense specs or attacking during poison phase) is 1:50. Anything faster than 1:05 and anything slower than 2:35 are outlier kill times. Fastest Vorkath kill I've ever seen is 42 seconds, and I believe it's impossible to beat until/if powercreep changes the Vorkath meta again.
