Thanks you for the extra bank space. :)

Hmm, The pvp change.
What happens if you DC while killing someone? Can you not loot the items if you log back in?

No. But it cuts both ways - if you're DCing as you suggest, there's a fair chance you might die yourself, and your opponent would now be unable to loot your items.

What we'd like is a situation where nobody disconnects at all. Sadly that's not how the world is, although the sysadmins are rolling out more and more network changes to try and get us there. (This reboot might take a little longer than usual due to more network changes.) So instead we're looking at temporary ways to make death a little less harsh in disconnection situations.

you never polled to see if we wanted to change Zulrah? wasn't this the idea of polling?

What we polled was a boss that should be fought with more than one combat style. It became apparent that this is not what Zulrah was.

Very happy indeed. Now let's get some Grand Exchange/Diary HYPE going.

Well, so far I've moved Lucien's house and the Surok outlaws westwards slightly to make space for the GE.

Should we expect to see the Trouble Brewing change next week?

Yes.

Do the maple logs look like that unnoted? I'm hoping that isn't true.

I'm afraid we can't currently make items appear differently in their noted and un-noted forms. It's a purely cosmetic change, though, and doesn't affect how the logs behave when you burn them, chop them or fletch them.

Is the melee form supposed to be so resistant to everything? Even when in near max mage bonus magic splashes a fair bit. I know its still faster to mage it but making the difference bigger would be nice, especially since kills are probably going to be slower with the new rotations.

We could make the difference bigger, though the melee form is not on screen very often due to its attack being quite limited.

how does maging the range form make any sense combat triangle wise... can't say i like that change

The melee form already has reduced magic defence. However it doesn't appear very often because its attack is so limited, so overall you'd just stick to ranging Zulrah anyway. The green form is on screen a lot more, so its magic vulnerability will - hopefully - make it more worth your while bringing magic attacks.

why are the drops worse if the boss is now harder? couldnt just do either or?

Ava's devices can now make Zulrah cheaper to fight.

Would you by chance have an eta on the re-sizable screen?

No, but I expect it to be my next project after the GE.

Why did you change the mechanics when no one was complaining about them?

Except for the people who pointed out that we'd offered a boss where you had to use multiple forms of combat to fight it effectively, and the people who pointed out that they could kill it faster than we'd expected so its drops were now incredibly generous, etc.

ETA on Achievement Diaries please?

Mod Reach tweets his progress as he goes - see here.
