You should probably get your head out of the sand. PvP in this game has been dead since EoC was released, which is why you rarely run into PKers nowadays. PvM, on the other hand... Yeah, the vast majority of updates (M&S notwithstanding) have been in their favor.

Or just continue to show unwarranted toxicity towards PvP, I guess. Whatever floats your boat.

Actually, I don't know much about the divine-o-matic, never having using it in the Wildy.

But I'd lay money that the whinge was from PvMers/PKers and not from skillers because the only players that Jagex pay any attention to are PvMers.

When something adversely affects a PvMer/PKer, Jagex are on the case straightaway to either buff or nerf as required.

When something adversely affects a skiller, well, it really depends whether PvMers/PKers like it or not. If they do, it stays, if they don't, it goes. If it doesn't affect them, it stays because Jagex rarely pay any attention to skilling issues.

If something loses money for a PvMer/PKer, god forbid that that should stay in game. If skillers lose out, well, they should PvM and that would make everything right.

Sorry for the rant on this thread but it just typifies the Jagex model - I genuinely don't know if a few skillers were gaining at the expense of other skillers or if a few PvMers/PKers complained about not getting drops but, in my experience, the complaints of PvMers/PKers holds a whole lot more influence than anything else.

Most people I know that PvM and myself tend to afk energies/elves for clues when not PvMing, think PvMers would love divine charges at 100gp each tbh, bought 600+ for 45kea, including cheap 20+ onyx's for my soul amulet, love when things go on sale :P

If PvMers did complain to make this nerf happen, they wanted more afk gp not thinking JaGeX would nerf divine-o-matic and as for PKers....don't think they have much hold on anything except building player kill count via unarmed skillers. think JaGeX should just make wilderness a slayer/PvM/skilling area with added dangers with dmg that scale to level to fix @afkscape

I wouldnt mind if div was less afk, but punishing innocent players like this and encouraging trolls is just a bad and unbalanced move. Don't stand up for whats allowed, stand up for whats right.

No lube? Jagex can't show us on the welcome back page after not playing for a couple months when something changes like this? Wow I think that's more of a scam then some of these kids in game cheating people. Thanks for costing me 20m that's been safe on death since invention was released. Very appriciated... Not. What's next our money pouch gets dropped in the wild without a heads up? And the person that kills you gets 200k? I bet you get that back when someone loses it in the wild. Have your greedy hands been itching lately while many of us spend on the game to get robbed by you? You gonna pay me what I lost? Doubt that. So am I supposed to spend again and make your wallets bigger to get it back? Keep us updated better not just those that will be on the work of the update. I could do that better than you have so far. 👍

^ Exactly. How dumb can you be? At least tell players when you've made a dumb update, don't bury one of the most important updates of the week in the patch notes.

I just finally got 101 Invention and was real excited to finally have one, I get to the wilderness and this guy's like LEAVE NOW.

What a waste, it's so clear to tell that there was no thought put into what the item was released for in the first place. Implying players with 101+ Invention actually affected the charge prices instead of the countless bots dumping millions of energies into the game is just ignorant. Oh, and now you're dumping billions of gold into the game, too. Just like the bots.

"Because of the increased rate of acquiring energies from the wilderness location, since the vaccuum was added to game the rate of div charges has increased beyond what we were comfortable with, which has also decreased their price."

Shauny, you really have a knack for pissing everyone off. If that's all it was you should have just removed it from the game and replace each Divine-o-Matic with a refund package containing 180 Metallic Parts, 750 Smooth Parts, and 120 Powerful Components.

You added that change out of the blue with no warning at all, not even a 1 day warning nor was it even in the front page article of the patch it was in. You failed to do your part to alert the player base of the change you wanted so badly so a lot of players were unaware of it and lost their Divine-o-Matics. Considering that and your previous posts I'm beginning to wonder if you're doing it on purpose. You keep making changes you know will be universally hated, don't give any warnings, and don't even make a front page article about the controversial changes.

On a side note: no one likes communism, stop manipulating the market.

What gup means is that update will encourage pkers to camp the Wilderness divination rift for the sole purpose of trolling Divine o Matic users since it is now destroyed on death. There are a lot of assholes who get their kicks doing that sort of thing.

Yup, kinda like the ones who harass abyss runecrafters that aren't even wearing demonic skulls.
