Is the Staking Bug not fixed yet, where people force an X-Log by using incorrect attempts of the BankPin on the Bond Screen?

Hopefully fixed yesterday. There's a 'Report bugs here' thread in the OS General forum where you can post info about bugs.

placing a combat restriction on the slayer partners is garbage! slayer lvl should be restriction enough.

Slayer tasks have always had combat level requirements. The partnership system is simply applying the requirements that have always existed.

Personally I think quite a lot of them are too high, and we'll be offering to rethink them in a forthcoming Slayer poll. But for now, the requirements exist, and the partnership system is not trying to provide a sneaky way around them.

Cool, so how will XP be split between slayer partners?

It isn't split.
You're simply being given the same assignment, and you do it like any other assignment, gaining XP normally. The only effect of the partnership is that the two of you may get the same assignment as each other, giving you a chance to do your assignments in the same place if you wish.

I have like 750 Zulrah KC but haven't got a rare drop since 180 KC. Is it bug or...?

Zulrah's unique drops have not changed their rate, though it no longer drops crystal keys and it drops a lot fewer crystal seeds than it used to.

Players often complain that there must be a bug if they have a long period of poor luck. In fact, the game doesn't actually track your luck or your karma, so it's not susceptible to bugs where a specific player is doomed to be unlucky for a week. It just picks random numbers for everyone.

Ultimately, we supply the game, you supply your own luck.

How does XP work? If one partner dies is the slayer team done or is it still task on?

Since Ironman stand alone.. can they have instanced stores? e.g charter traders?

The 2007 game engine didn't have support for instanced shops. That came some time later, as part of the trade restrictions. So we can't offer that right now.

How are you going to counter people selling tasks? This is all this has encouraged.

While a player can sell the chance to be their partner, they can't guarantee to get any particular task. They can guarantee not to get specific tasks that are quest-locked, or similar, though the benefit is relatively small.

... honestly, this is crap. The only feature is that only one of you need to run get a new task? We would like more to this update. Like xp share, combined task (like a total of common monsters to slay in stead of induvidual amounts). I'm sure plenty of feaures could be added to this update to make it awsome.

Frankly, we ran into difficulty coming up with a version that would allow people to train Slayer together without triggering players' concerns about the skill becoming buyable. Hence this deliberately small-scale update. I'm sorry you're disappointed.

I believe I found a bug with the Slayer Gem....

Oops. There's a bug report form in the OS General forum for when you want to report bugs.

Now people get 8 block-task slots, if I understand it right.

No, players still have 5 slots as before. If you're assigned a task that your partner has blocked, you still get the task, and your partner doesn't get it at all.

Muniq said:
I'm saying this is not what many expected.

Indeed. Originally we pitched a more extensive update , but it wasn't at all popular. So we scaled it down.

It's entirely possible that the community's opinion on the matter will evolve over time, like it did with the GE, and future Slayer updates can include expansions on the partnership system.
