The wait is over... Dragon claws are now available in tournament world!

i wish this didnt happen even for a birthday kinda ruins the origional feel of combat people are use to, such as why morrigans armors and stuff people voted against for deadman worlds because it doesnt apply to all of us therefore it throws off the familiarity and effective remembrance of pvp and combat.

It is now possible to dismantle Zulrah rewards, giving you 20,000 Zulrah scales in exchange for each item.

can turn out to be a pretty useless update because of changing market prices therefore it should be an npc that would pay a certain amount of scales based off grand exchange price for the item whatever it may be.

The lever which teleports you into the lair of the King Black Dragon has a new option to open up a private instance of the lair.

Opening an instance costs 50,000 coins. You must have coins in your inventory in order to pay this fee.

this is where the game starts going downhill because the reason its a competition is to keep things in order and in balance because say 1000 people fight over like 34 worlds i dont know how many there is, well now they can just all buy an instance therefore making prices plumit on these types of items and making it harder for people that do lower scale player versus monsters and stuff harder to catch up to higher scale content therefore leading to less annual players on osrs.

With two weeks before tournament worlds are removed, get in while you can and enjoy slicing and dicing some noobs!

the only response i got to permanent tournament worlds are it is unpolled therefore it should be removed later and also it would be a lasting impact on pvp we dont want from mod ronan.

my response:if people feel their more confident in their ability to fight, this should boost pvp,lets get some questions about it being permanent.i've yet to see a good reason from jagex or anyonelse why they should be removed,why remove them without a further response?!?!?

why do the dclaws have the dds noise?

We've got an incomplete pre-EoC archive with quite a lot of the code in (not including game engine) and various assets. Unfortunately the game in those days was using sound effects in a completely different format to what OSRS can read, so we generally can't re-use those.

Because that's exactly what I said would happen :@

It might not.

But the calls for dragon claws over the last 3 years have not exactly gone away. If we're going to go one way or the other, it will be a reasonably informed decision, not just based on people's vague memory of something they did 7 years ago. Indeed, it's about the closest we've managed to get to offering a beta for a small update.


do you see what you said here people have been requesting them for 3 years i posted a blog where jagex needs to make a blog where they post official jagex responses to questions asked by the oldschool runescape community so people can check it out, so this way they feel they've been recognised and will stop asking the same questions over and over this should be a priority by the jagex team,this would help the game work alot better because people can focus on new things to ask and also save jagex alot of time.

So much for dragon claws being something you never would release into the main game, and this just being a fun thing for people to mess around with. Knew it would eventually lead to a poll if the people on RS forums cry for it. Do you realize how negatively this would affect PvP, especially single combat? The lack of regard for pumping OP items in the game is pretty mind-blowing considering all of the other items we already have.

Suppose next we should have tourny worlds with divines, turmoil, PvP items, and korasi's sword next. Why not? People can decide if they like them or not. Who cares about game integrity.

D claws must have murdered your entire famly for you to hate them so much.

Anyways... all dramatic Bs aside, id love d claws, adds variety to osrs and allows atleast 1 Decent Spec Weapon for OSRS. Theres plenty of Tanky Gear for claws.



Yeah... There's plenty of "tanky" gear when you're on a server with an unlimited supply of maxed gear. This server is not very representative of how they would act in real PvP combat. In the wilderness it'll be used almost exclusively against rune, mystic, d'hide, and ghostly robes (in the case of pures). Not full bandos, dfs, and maxed defense bonuses.

Why do people get so upset, like they will ruin the wildy.... they will bring the wildy back


Because most of us have been there and done that. Dragon claws were once apart of the game, it's not like it's some foreign item whos consequences in the wilderness are unknown. Many veterans and people who actually pk know all too well how OP they are/were.


Imo its Hardly OP, its not hard to shark/karam. let alone pray in-between hits.

Well said. I agree and honestly believe the other guy wasn't around when they initially
released them.

Jagex just wants to force them into the game.. same as Jad2, Zeah, etc.

Every post he saw supporting claws had 2x disapproving of them. Exact same scenario for Jad2 and the new bis crap they're forcing next year. Didn't pass but it is what they truly want.

Sucks to "have our vote matter" only to see it trumped by the developers who can't take the fact we don't want their recommendations.

Our voting system is very flawed atm . Updates are controlled by mostly the 25 percentile even if 74 percent of this community would say yes the 26th percentile that doesnt want change will always win and in the end kill this game for lack of content. Their excuse is mostly because they want the game to stay as it is but any game that doesnt spark any new interest in players and is always the same old same old is destined to die, losing more players that actually growing. This game whether its foundation on old school runescape needs to grow with updates and content. We have a opportunity to make this a better game but if jagex keeps this 75 percent system this game will see few updates and end up dead stagnent content. The 26 percentile will always say no to whatever effects them. I think jagex needs to make some decisions on its own because if you dont know it will be us a community that kill this game not jagex this time lol. Its fine if you ask us and have polls but in the end you as a company should have the ability to make the right choice for your game.
