More holy wrench bonuses
A popular ninja request has been to make the holy wrench more useful. While we're not comfortable with it making it into an always active effect on the toolbelt we were scratching our heads for other ways to make the wrench more attractive and decided on a nice little bonus effect. While it usually improves prayer point restoration from potions, we feel like we can improve the effect by having it work alongside Dungeoneering prayer necklaces when used together, increasing prayer restoration effects and perhaps XP when used in conjuction.


Well that effect is useless. Demonhorn already gives infinite prayer; infinity * 1.05 is still infinity.
One problem at a time.

When you’re using the demonhorn necklace and bonecrusher/attuned ectoplasmator combination, you’re getting constant prayer per kill. The holy wrench on top of that would just be making full prayer even fuller. The holy wrench should just be buffed to restore more prayer points or slow down prayer drain so it can be used anywhere.

Id prefer no mini boss repeat post quest, unless it changes to no XP and instead a droptable of unique items, pet, and other various helpful tools in the game.

Aka what you did in hero's welcome which was nice. NOT Agaroth.

If the repeatable boss is added, it might be cool to tie it into the Skeletal Horror for thematic reasons. Maybe doing one could provide increased rewards on the other, or doing one could tick both off and give the rewards for both. You never were our brightest star, Khazard. 'Vermin slaughtered like lambs'? What does that even mean?

This is niche to the point of boredom. Give the pirate finale a juicy quest reward. If you feel that letting us add the wrench to the tool-belt is broken-good, that's fair. However, we should still be getting something exciting from this! Sorry, but based on the current list, the rewards are shaping up to be under-whelming for a long-running series' finale. Right now, the list currently consists of a bunch of individually under-whelming things, and simply bundling them together doesn't fix that. Please don't be so shy about giving the finale at least one reward that makes it important.

Also, as others have pointed out, the weekly repeatable mini-boss contradicts the anti-dailyscape ethos you've committed to.

The teleports sound really good, who doesn't like useful teleports?

Pirate Implings I would like updated with more rewarding loot and this is probably the reward I would most be excited about if the reward improvements were really useful and valuable. I do like to catch implings. The stuff is pointless since almost no one uses (M) ales any more, so unless you plan to make (M) ales boost 5 levels it won't be worth adding. I want something that I can sell for GP so I would hope for some rare items worth a lot. For something to be worth a lot, it has to have stats, increase XP from skilling or loot from monster drops or maybe from clue scrolls, or be very rare and desirable as a cosmetic. Clue scrolls that would give guaranteed double caskets as a reward, or rerolls for clue scrolls with a limit of one reroll per casket might be appealing.

A colorful parrot pet would be probably well sought after if there was one.

The Barrelchest boss would make a nice cosmetic outfit.

I'm not really interested in fighting bosses, so for me a repeatable boss I wouldn't be interested in, unless its really easy and has a chance for good drops.

Brimhaven Agility arena reward updates can be left off, I have no intention of going there for anything. The only Brimhaven Agility update I would want is to be able to earn the tickets on a different course such as Ape Atoll or Hefin.

The Holy Wrench update sounds good, that is something I might use.

3 alternatives to current Holy Wrench:
- Give Holy Wrench (or even upgraded to Holy Sigil) a special effect. Your character will yell out "Yarr, I'm the greatest (holy) pirate there ever was!" and a holy light beam will shine down on the player, providing them with total damage immunity for 10 seconds (subject to balancing), at the cost of all the player's prayer points (minimum 800+ prayer points left to activate). Also cancels any prayer renewal effects currently active. Cooldown 15 minutes. (Could make it not usable at Telos/Solak, but allowed in Shattered Worlds)
- Massive boost in prayer restoration with an Enhanced Holy Wrench. It degrades to a normal Holy Wrench and can only be recharged with Super Prayer Renewal Potions (6-dose).
- Allow Holy Wrench to be used similar to an Elite Enhanced Excalibur, which restores prayer points over time with a 5 minute cooldown. It starts with 100 charges, and can only be recharged with Super Prayer Renewal Potions (6-dose).

No repeating events please (DailyScape is already a massive burden).

All the rewards currently on the list (as described), even if all of them were given, feels a bit lackluster for a quest series finale.

What would be useful is if the Holy Wrench increased healing when using Soul Split.

Or, if you could pour prayer potions onto the Holy Wrench to charge it, so clicking it uses a dose of prayer potion or gives you prayer restore over time as your prayer gets lower, to save inventory space and make up for the one less prayer potion you can carry. Or make it able to place a prayer potion in your inventory from your bank once every half hour.

Most of the time I don't use the Holy Wrench because the prayer it saves is less than what a 6 dose flask would give me, so to really improve it, it has to give more benefit than a 6 dose prayer flask would, or not take up an inventory space.
