No xp drops/counter? what

What we'd actually been hoping to launch was Maz's rewrite of the Duel Arena. As she's mentioned on Twitter, she's currently unwell, and the rewrite isn't finished yet, so we've instead had to prepare some smaller quality-of-life updates. I doubt XP drops would have been ready for this week even if we'd not had the Duel Arena in development; it's not such a small job.

Cool finally kalphite queen isn't crashable (at least on not on the second form)

any speculation on when the new slayer bosses are coming out? itching for them!

The Slayer stuff will be coming in batches across the summer. I believe the plan is for Cerberus to come earlier in the summer with the Abyssal Sire later on.

Speaking of the KQ, I've taken some time to delve into the middle of our combat system, and I reckon I'll be able to make recoil damage (rings, vengeance, etc.) apply itself to the NPC that dealt the original damage rather than always targeting whatever NPC hit you most recently. Which should help a lot with the KQ's little minions, and also with Zulrah's snakelings, if I can get it to work.

So this makes it possible for pk'ers to check if there is anybody in the lair, without taking damage? Seems a bit unfair to the PVM'ers in the cave doesn't it?

And yet it's useful for PvMers who are looking for a free room to fight the boss themselves. This could have gone either way, but I'm not particularly surprised it passed. You never know, it might even help encourage people not to crash.

Could you add Big fish and Whirlpool random events to Enchanted Valley? I miss them!

While we could, it's dev time that I'd really rather spend on something else. Sorry.

Also mods please don't read this.

So the following Thursday possibly?

I'm likely to spend some time working with Maz on the Duel Arena, since I really want that out next Thursday even if it delays XP drops. We shall see.

Unfortunately I've got a rather busy weekend coming up, so I can't offer to do it "unofficially" faster.

Any idea on when the Music Cape might be coming out?

It'd be nice if we could deliver every single thing off the polls the day after the poll closes. Sadly we can't.
The rest of the features from the poll will arrive in the coming weeks, as usual.

As I mentioned elsewhere in the thread, we'd really been aiming to do the Duel Arena this week anyway, so we had to replan rather hastily when that proved unfeasible.

Remove "peek" option from scorpia. A team can hop worlds sparatically and if they find a world with someone inside they can simply gather at the entrance and then rush in and kill them easily. At least if someone is scouting traditionally, the scorpia killer gets a warning by seeing someone come in real fast.


I agree with this! The clan I am in we go Scorpia about once a week this could be very troubling for a small clan such as ours.

Done.

Well, sort of. I can't remove the op. But I've programmed it not to tell you how many people are in there.

so will it be like crystal bows and the recharge cost less each time you recharge or is this just another option to getting a hally?
and if so will the hally recharge share the same cost as crystal bow/shield?

<3

It's exactly like the shield pricing, reducing every time you get Ilfeen to recharge something. So if you've had your shields or bows recharged a few times already, you'll already qualify for cheap halberd recharging.

when does osrs get its own forums and grand exchange database? also a world map in game would be nice :)

Our GE webpages are nearly ready. Hopefully we'll get them in the coming weeks.
An in-game world map would involve game engine changes. There are currently more pressing things we need from that team.

Can you expand the team even further? I don't understand why Jagex has limited you guys so much when OSRS has at least 30-40% (ruff estimate) active daily players of RuneScape 3.

Jagex has given us quite a few new staff lately. Chucking in dozens more might sound like a good idea, but I think you'd find the team a lot less able to respond to you personally if we got so big that we needed middle managers and project coordinators, etc.

MushiesMagic said:
For example; putting everything in Nieves cave instead of looking into more fun alternatives like adding agility short cuts so players can access new areas that aren't packed...

I'm sorry you see that as a lack of quality. Bear in mind that Nieve's cave is the "task-only" cave. So if we put NPCs in there, it's to make them task-only, not because we can't be bothered to put them somewhere else instead.

Mapping down an expansion to Nieve's cave is no easier than mapping down an expansion to any other cave. And you'll recall Nieve's cave does actually have Agility features and other obstacles; putting NPCs in there is not an excuse to avoid adding obstacles.

MushiesMagic said:
Fire Archie or Ronan and make that a single job then hire another dev.

No. I consider it beneficial to have both of them. Having someone to read the forums and social media is valuable, and having someone who understands video stuff and can deal with our Twitch records is valuable too. But I'd like another permanent developer alongside me and Mod Krista too, since Mod Maz is not expected to be here permanently.

MushiesMagic said:
I don't play MemeScape I play OldSchool RuneScape.

Oddly enough, that's actually Marketing in action. Stick out dank memes that players will distribute on the internet, and you get more people noticing OSRS and potentially becoming players. Obviously we pay for advertising too, and that's been working well, but viral memes are cheap and powerful. We don't just do it for teh lulz.

MushiesMagic said:
Half the team... seem like they're just doing it for the pay check when you should really be looking into people with passion for the game.

I have no doubt that my teammates have at least as much passion for the game as I do. Despite the response of some members of the community :P

Which raises my second question WHO NEEDS MORE THEN 2 BILLION COINS?!

Stakers. I've seen one staker with 10m platinum tokens.

Wartaa said:
What about a message in the chatbox (Toggleable if possible) that lets people inside the room know that the door was checked.

It'd need some kind of anti-spam rule as well as a toggle.

Ash, any chance at us getting the dark stone style for our houses? Would it be a hard job? I seem to recall it was basically just recolored white stone.

Not hard, no. It really was just a repaint of existing models. The artists in 2009 weren't able to offer much GFX budget for my Love Story quest.

IroN spLicer said:
but a question on the tokens, is there any chance that you could make the tokens look a little better?

It's certainly possible, but remember that any dev time the artists spend on that is time taken away from something else. There's a limit to how much we'd want to assign to this.
