Someone did the math and it turned out to actually close to my prediction!


Well the fact of the matter is not everyone will always get everything.

So if they cant get it im sure jagex will rerelease the armor some point in the future.

I mean so far almost every other "community" based promo rewards has been AFAIK.

Ok then don't cry when you can't unlock cosmetics because you didn't have enough time.

Thanks to Jon Stryder for showing the math. I am now on < 14,000 parts with 5 days left, so still need over 1K parts a day. I will probably make it but this is kinda ridiculous.

I've had three days of which various pieces have been lost to not having internet access -- due to my ISP, no fault of my own. I also don't generally have 4 hours to play in a typical day, either.

This event has more significance to me than some other similar events, simply because I've been waiting for that boat to be built and see what's on the other end of it for over a decade!

I was actually disappointed to see that finishing it was going to be one of these 14-day events, and I really don't like the direction these are going.

Jagex, you are not going to get any more cash out of me this way; I will not spend on these events. All you're going to succeed in doing is driving me further away from the game.

I think the difference between player's opinion is down to what they consider 'normal' gameplay. If you normally play for 5 hours a day, every day, then of course you are not going to have any problem completing this event through normal gameplay. Someone who only logs on for 30mins to do their dailies or only at weekends, is going to find this event much more challenging.

Personally I was doing fine with my target of 2000 tokens per day, but then on Friday I was admitted to hospital with no access to a computer. I'm still there, so the amount of grinding I will have to do to catch up is rapidly climbing (assuming I get discharged before the event ends.)

Sometimes real life just gets in the way.




[Edit: Looks like I'm staying in until after the weekend, so that's game over for me.]

I would like these events to require 10 000 currency like they used to when there was a cap. They should not give bonus xp after the rewards are unlocked as they are quite op. Events are supposed to be fun not a burden on daily life or a handout of free xp. Ppl who want to buy xp can get TH keys and events should be left out of the xp craze. My 2 cents anyway.

These events are meant to have limited enjoyment as Jagex wants you to buy your way out of them instead of grind-fest them all day. This is them trying to do a cash-grab from the dwindling player base.

At least it isn't just 2-3 NPCs standing in one place telling you to grind-fest it. The skilling nodes makes this far easier as I can do IRL shit while my characters grind-fest and relog every few minutes. Made it pretty stress free.

The RS3 Community is treated like :@RUBBISH:@ due to constant TH promotions.

Don't buy keys on Treasure Hunter, if you do Jagex will only make more TH promotions :(

That's 14½ hours of non-stop grinding on top of the daily activities already mentioned.
So if Jagex were going for 'boring or time-consuming' with this event, I think they really hit the nail on the head!


um basically your calculations show you have to play rs for an hour a day to get all the totally cosmetic rewards, seeing as every activity gives u frags

i really dont think playing an hour a day for purely cosmetic shit is unfair in any way at all

to be fair, my dailies take me an hour a day, in which time ive also collected the frags i need for the day...

pointless moaning from op tbh


I'm inclined to agree. It'd be different if there was limitations on what you needed to do to get fragments, but in my experience, just about any XP gain counts. Hell, even when I'm walking a long distance to get from Point A to B, all it takes is to cut a tree every few minutes and I get the frags.

I really haven't spent much time at the event site beyond getting the daily 500 frags, and I've been drowning in them just for playing the game. I got the title about halfway through the event despite doing a lot of travelling, and the rest has been gravy.

Aside from the MTX element letting you essentially buy Mystery Boxes, I really don't see the problem with this one. And yes, the total required increased compared to Easter, but at least there's that daily task to make up for it, so if you did the daily for at least 10 days in the event, you're not any further behind.

Plus, this is exactly like the Valkyrie event, right down to the 500 daily currency.
