The player owned port and travel to the Arc is a great addition to the game, make a nice change. The only problem is that you really can only see all these islands in name to send a ship out and sadly dont get to experience the islands. Are there any plans to make the Skull and Hook regions playable? The xp and reward arent great but the exploring the new islands are great, so would be nice to see playabiliry extended to these regions rather than just the Arc. Which would provide some incentive to keep coming back.

Are there any planned updates for this?

Soon(TM)

There's currently no immediate plans to continue into the Skull Region unless the players vote strongly for it in one of the content polls.

Would be nice to see more regions of Wushanko, but I doubt it'll get voted for...

Most players see the Arc (and by extension, the entire Eastern Lands) as a high level skilling hub. Which is a shame, because the Skull region does sounds more combat focused.

And that's what we need more of in RS3; more combat! /sarcasm
:@

Seriously though, Elite Dungeons are in the works, and at least one of those is set in the Arc.

The Skull was an option in the RuneScape Survey 2018, under the question "
Which of these areas would you be eager for us to work on? (Choose all that apply)
"

It got 31%, making it the second-least popular option - only Floor 61 of Daemonheim got less.

So, while I'd like to see The Skull, I don't think it'll be coming soon.

didnt know about the polls, will look and make sure i get people voting.

The actual Arc content available is quite basic compared to western runescape, so i would of thought it would be easier to roll out content even if there wasnt tons of depth to it. What I dont get is why develop all these potential islands (can see on map) and then not go through with it all? I feel like I spent alot of time in player owned port and now I realised cant actual travel to the island past the Arc, what is the point to even go back now?

It has so much potential, because they are small islands with miniquests which is a nice distraction from the similarities of the western lands. It just offers a completely different avenue of play, which I think can be developed relativity easily. It doesnt need the depth of the western lands. More like an explorer type adventure.

So here is hoping the atleast go a bit further and your able to make better use of your crew that you develop over time.

To say that the Eastern Lands take less developmental work than the mainland is asinine.

Even just with the simple fact that it's a closed economy, it takes more work.

The Arc regions offer some of the best high level XP in the game, I wouldn't say that the experience gained there isn't "great" lol. Buying lamps with chimes are a pretty good value I believe.

Now reward wise, that's a different story. Needs an expansion to the shops imo to make up for the amount of chimes/taijitu you're gonna have excess of.
