Geodes


Using the right-click, open-all feature, causes this:

You break your geode open to find:
a spirit shard
You break your geode open to find:
a spirit shard
You break your geode open to find:
an opal


Having the message about each geode spread over two lines like that looks messy....and unfinished.
And when opening lots of geodes, 30-40 at a time, it gets really spammy O_o
Please, please....tidy it up or add the messages to the filter!


Metal tokens


So, my F2P alt had some adamant items in her bank.
A couple of weapons (duplicates for placeholders), and a couple of bits of armour. Her day-to-day melee kit, or the essential bits of it.
It was not just 'stuff' she was hoarding to alch later (she really hasn't got enough bankspace for that kind of playstyle!).

But it still got turned into tokens.
Well, I'll just go reclaim it...right?

Wrong!

Porblem #1
She had an off-hand weapon (I'd picked a dual-wield setup instead of 2h). The store doesn't have any off-hand weapons. Ooops.

Problem #2
The tokens weren't adding up.
The 90 tokens were just enough to cover buying 2 main-hand maces, a platebody and a helm.
But clearly 90 tokens would not have been enough to buy back everything that got turned into tokens.

Yes, the missing off-hands could have been replaced by making or buying them.
But putting the onus of replacement on players, when it was Jagex who made this clumsy mistake....that doesn't seem fair.

The right-click "Open All" feature is truly awful. The spam didn't bother me, but the rate at which the geodes are opened did - when you have 400+ geodes, and a single geode is opened every tick, or every 2 ticks, it becomes a real problem and a chore.

Instead, it's much quicker just to spam-click the geodes manually; they open MUCH faster that way. Still not ideal, but definitely better than the slow automatic way.

I tried left-clicking, and got a popup box....I'm not sure if that is what could be slowing down spam-clicking, or if it is just the batteries in my mouse.

But I really can't imagine spam-clicking through hundreds of these geodes....so the right-click option is nice to have.

You get a window in the middle of the screen telling you what item you got from the geode when you open them manually. The window can be ignored if you're spam-clicking because you can continue opening the geodes regardless. I can open about 2 a tick doing that.

I don't know why there's even a delay when using the "Open All" option to begin with. Geodes (with the exception of the Metamorphic ones) only contain gems and spirit shards, so you would expect that clicking "Open All" would just remove the geodes and instantly leave you with a bunch of stacks of gems.

That is the full intention - works the same way for bird nests and prawn balls as well. They even re-introduced the quick open a single one option based on feedback again (as it was briefly removed when open-all was released). The slow automatic way still is nice if you're afk shortly or so.

What does Bugbears mean?

Minor annoyances.

Generally, things which could safely be fixed or altered without impacting the game or it's economy in the slightest. If something is just annoying, and the annoyance isn't meaningful in some way then it's a bugbear.
