Why in all the world isn't there even an option to turn off that intense blinking light at killerwatts!? I have a mild form of seizures that really sets in when there is such thing. Hell you even did put in a warning before entering the area, without fixing this? I don't want to cancel tasks or fill up a blocking spot on my slayer tab just because this task triggers my seizures. You really should look into this asap Jagex. The game is great but this really disappoints me as a paying member.

Agreed. Maybe they could make it as an unlock (a free unlock even) so that those who have rl health issues triggered by that crap wouldn't be punished for their rl health issues while playing the game.

BTW, it's not just seizures that that crap triggers. It also triggers migraines.

I am surprised why Jagex just don't remove that dumb effect on Killerwatt area.

They even have the option to turn off the smoke effect in the smoke devil dungeon but not this (where this can potentially cause severe health implications)? Really?

For whatever it's worth, support. This effect needs to be removed, or at least make it toggle-able just like the one in smoke devil dungeon.

Are you referring to their idle animation? There is no flickering in the plane itself. But the Killerwatts are a different story. Not only are they dangerous for epileptics, it's just annoying. Gotta get rid of that.

Moved to an appropriate forum, ignore my butterfingers. "When history witnesses a great change, Razgriz reveals itself... first, as a dark demon. As a demon, it uses its power to rain death upon the land, and then it dies. However, after a period of slumber, Razgriz returns, this time, as a great hero"

Everything about killerwatts is annoying, honestly. Shame it's too late to just remove them.

Support, though.

It might very well be too late to remove them, but perhaps they could remove them from being assigned by slayer masters so that any of the players who have rl health issues (like seizures, migraines, vertigo, etc) could still enjoy the game.
