Hi, I was just wondering if I am missing something with the New Boneyard promo.
It says there are (NEW) items, the skeletal bear and bone master outfit. However, those are def. not new as I already had them from the Feb. promo. So had this been a 1 day rehash I can understand but it has 114 hours to go and I see nothing new, so am I missing something, what is the purpose of this promo?

the people in charge of making new promos are probably on vacation or something. god knows they wouldn't ever get pulled to work on actual content.

You're right, the text is wrong nowadays, as the rewards aren't "new" anymore. Then again, you should know to do your research before you buy keys expecting "new" rewards blindly. There's something to say on both sides, really.

There's false advertisement and then there's caveat emptor.

Yes, those items are new, but not brand new. They are new as pretty much what "new" is defined even in the dictionaries as "recently" new offers.

Another example is the "Best New RuneScape Video Maker" and "Best New OSRS Video Maker" nominatees in Jagex's Golden Gnome finalist lists are not brand new RS3 and OSRS video makers at all. You can find RS3 and OSRS videoes made by them from years ago. ;)

Well, they are new to the players who only joined RS within the past few months or so. For the rest of us, they aren't new. "Most recent" you could say, but not "new".

"Nothing new since we last ran this promo" isn't as likely to get people excited enough to buy TH keys, though.

I don't buy TH keys anyway, and that is certainly nothing new. :p

The irony is those "new" players who only joined RS (e.g. Mobile players) within the past few months or so aren't new players according to OP's complaint. :D

"No new players in the game since we released Mobile a few month" isn't as likely to get people excited enough to buy membership, though. :D:D:D

TFW you don't need to buy keys to get the tokens.

I mean they are tradeable hence why buying keys for them is the worst route to go.
