like the pirate impling drop inprovement but instead of it giving you a clue why not a common(eay) uncommon(medium rare(hard) the elite is very rare(if ya bought the impling you eather get no map or ya could make the treasure map even more rarer makes players wanna go catch them themselfs instead of buying) for a stolen treasure map.the treasure map will have a map marker that can lead to couple of spots around the world and if its inside a location with bosses/agresieve enemy's ya have to kill them first due to it interuping the digging progress you need 5-10 seconds of diging to dig it up

stolen treasure map possible locations keep in mind the locations is a 1 time visite for the reward.
-gwd 1/2 one of the four boss rooms wont work on hard mode/payed instances
-corporeal beast lair ya have to kill the beast first then 1 of these graves hase the loot(at random when ya get this map)
-uncharted isle having map with ya gives ya 1 time trip to a small island with 4 guardians ya have to kill before ya can dig in the middle.



holy wrench
instead of having the holy wrench upgrade the xp ya get with the necklace why not let it store the charges depanding on what tier bones/ashes ya bury it with having it in ya inventory or equipt. it will have a limit of 10.000 charges it will take time to charge it up so it wont be overpowerdt to use it to make it fair there is a different solution using vis wax to charge it up to a max of 50 for a full recharge) the 10.000 charges is bassicly 10 full recharges no matther the prayer points restoring it consumes 1000 charges if ya have that if not then all of the remaining charges so it always restores ya up to ya max prayer points+10
3 points for empious/bat/wolf/monkey(small)/burnt
6 for accurshed ashes/big bones/monkey bones(big)/curved/jorge/long
8 zorge/shaikahan/baby dragon bones
11 wyvern bones/infernal ashes
14 dragon bones/faryg/tortured/raurg bones
17 daggonoth/airut/ourg/harden dragon bones
20 frost/rune/searing ashes

The Big Book 'O Piracy

Whilst I love the idea of this, I never used the previous one and unless content is added to these islands, I don't think I'd use it. I guess it would be nice for visiting the islands for nostalgia's sake, but there's currently no reason to return to the islands.

Insights into ancient mysteries

Super hyped about this one, I really love stuff like this.

Pirate impling loot table changes

Unless there is something really extravagant from these, I don't think I'd be too interesting. As others have said, I think Implings in general need a base upgrade.

Brimhaven Agility arena reward buffs & additions

Similarly to Pirate Implings, I feel like the Brimhaven Agility Arena needs a base upgrade before anything is added on top. I don't really see myself going there for additional herbs or exp.

Repeatable miniboss

This could be really good, if it's along the lines of the Abomination as opposed to a D&D exp boss.

More holy wrench bonuses

This is getting quite a lot of backlash as being something incredibly niche, if not useless, what about combining the wrench and barrelchest anchor to create an excalibur-like weapon with a prayer restore?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As this is the pirate finale quest, I'd really love a concrete and useful reward post-quest, it has been a long time since a quest has given a significant or memorable reward.

How about a new Xau-Tak themed Horror Slayer Task? Or a new useful Summoning Familiar? This wouldn't have to be beneficial to combat, but diversity in Summoning is very lacklustre and something could be added to benefit a skill.

I'd really love a reason to go back to the Pirate islands though, to give the teleport some use. I stand by the idea of some type of enhanced brewing to create all sorts of useful pirate-y ales.

As other people have touched on, the Brimhaven Agility Arena rewards as listed here should not be included in this update.

As far as I am aware, Pieces of Hate is going to be a Master level quest, whereas the Agility Arena is directed towards mid-level Agility training. There is very little need for high levels (i.e. the players who are completing this quest) to go back to the Arena as there are now so many better alternatives. I sincerely doubt they are going to return to obtain herbs they can buy on the Grand Exchange, or for a cosmetic hook.

That being said, lower levels may be enticed back with these updates. In other words, don't lock these behind high level quests. If the Arena was released as a brand new project today with these items in stock, you wouldn't lock it behind a quest.

Add them to the list which the Ninja's can apply to the Great Brimhaven Rejuvenation Project:

> Additional 5 tickets for every 25 or 50 consecutive pillar tags;

> Three tickets if you are the first to the tag, two if you are second - must require at least 5 players who are active, i.e. have the green light;

> 10,000 ticket trade in for experience - giving 3.6m experience;

> Chance of finding items which fall from above, perhaps working in a similar vein to the rubble in Flash Powder Factory. Items could include food and potions to help in the Arena, but also items which Pirate Implings give (currently and/or your proposed update to this);

> Buff experience gained from obstacles - perhaps increase the experience based on level; i.e. at level 40 you get current experience, but at 99 it is double current experience, with a sliding scale between;

> Doorways in all four sides of the islands so that routes back to the top are shortened - this is one of the frustrations which stop players from coming back.


With a selection of these ideas, it also wouldn't be necessary to change the current shop prices.

So, a second floor for Brimhaven Agility for higher levels and new rewards such as a talky parrot and more herbs, sounds kind of like torture, so lets invite Pauline Polaris's sister, whom we will name Jolene, to run it.

We can plant and harvest seeds on the different platforms and get Farming and Agility XP at the same time, plus tickets as rewards. And sometimes the platforms will have glowing orbs of green, red, or blue which if you tag them, you get bonus XP in Farming or Herblore for green, Magic or Prayer for blue, and Combat for red. Yellow orbs give Agility bonus XP and restore your agility level and health to full. Jolene will tell you which platform color to go to and constantly tell you if you are doing a great job and insist she is nothing like her sister.

And if its not annoying enough, ladders will appear and disappear at random, on a 3x3 cube agility course, as well as obstacles changing just as we reach them and doors needing color coded keys to open them which we can store in our inventories and pick up from various platforms, but each time a key is used it respawns somewhere else.

As much as I've been a past proponent of an Advanced Brimhaven Agility Arena, or second floor if you will, I believe that there are more benefits to allowing high levels to train alongside low levels at the current course. If some changes can be made to fit in to the current course, giving access to players as they gain levels, it may work better IMO. I wouldn't support any experience, bonus or otherwise, to be gained in any skill other than Agility.

After all, we already have an "Advanced Agility Arena" in another area in the form of Flash Powder Factory. This pretty much does the same job as you have just described above.

Loving the sounds of this quest and I'm liking the new changes and surprises you guys have in store, but there's still room for improvement with the Holy Wrench.

I'd like to see it be become an add-on to the Slayer Helmet (Mighty/Corrupt only variation) with a prayer bonus of +5.


Great idea, but only for Corrupt Slayer Helmet. That upgrade needs to be more worthwhile for its cost.

It's been a long, long time since I've done a quest like this. Thanks for the correction.
