Hello everyone,

Since launching on Sunday we've seen multiple comments and feedback in relation to Balthazar's Raffle.

As a result we've now limited Raffle Ticket entry. Only accounts with total level 150 or more. will be able to enter the raffle.

We feel that this level cap is enough to stop new accounts being made just to enter the raffle while at the same time allowing new accounts that are just getting started to take part.

It should be noted that if we run any raffles in the future, they will also have this change.

Additionally we'll monitor this change, and if needs be make any further changes, should we need to do so we'll of course let you know.

Good change, but not good enough: the raffle should be removed completely and its rewards redistributed. Handing out free stuff like this devalues the game's integrity, the rewards should be properly earned.

True (I'd love to see golden warpriest kits in the Shades of Mort'ton catacombs) but unlikely to happen, especially now that it's commenced.

Perhaps you're half right; perhaps we can't win. But we can fight.

This in short, solves nothing.
150 Total is pretty swift to obtain, easily within an hour... Not to mention that the people that do this likely already have 150 Total from Treasure Hunter dailies. Lord Drakan said:
Thank you! Dunno if that is sufficiently high, maybe also add 10 QP or something, but yay, less rigging.
10 QP is not even 20 minutes worth of effort. People have defeated Elvarg in just over 70 minutes from a fresh account, requiring 33 QP and the training to have the stats to beat Elvarg on a F2P character.

Total level requirement should be at least 500 if you at least want to try to stave off people that farm the raffle......
