Is the new armor tradeable?

There are some new tradeable armour items, but the Shayzien reward armour is not. Bear in mind that this is very much a skilling update; we have not set out to create a significant combat expansion.

List of stats for items/gear/spells/prayers etc anywhere?

You'll find a lot in the skill guides once the update's out, but we've left a lot for players to discover through exploration.

Does Zeah have achievements? I can't log in yet. And if not, will it get achievements?

Not much point rushing to log in now - the countdown's got another 16 minutes or so.

Remember, Kourend is just one corner of Zeah. Before making a Zeah diary, I think we should let more of Zeah come out.

Will you be able to change house if you change your mind?

You gain favour with one house by working for it; you lose favour in the other houses as they see you helping their rival. If you want to get favour with a different house instead, just go and work for it instead.

Is Great Kourend or Zeah mentioned in any of the RuneScape lore? If not, Will it be in the future?

It seems likely that various pirates and sailors would have come across it before, though they have strong reasons for not sharing info about where they acquired their booty, so that might be why it's not been common knowledge.

Can we get all the rewards from all clans or just 1 reward at once?

Some activities require you to have high favour with their house in order to play.
However, items that you've earned and taken away can generally still be used elsewhere without needing to keep the favour. Such as the new watering can.

IS this f2p ?

No, this update is for members.

Will These Skilling Resorces be Tradeable Or Use in Faction only

Most of the new skilling resources are untradeable, for use in the favour tasks only. Though there's a tradeable new fish.

Are you planning to add more updates to great kourend?

We mustn't abandon the main lands, but we would be very happy to do expansions in and around Kourend in future.

Literally who decided that there should be a huge rating interface in your face so when you're walking straight you can't see anything?

Check your XP drops settings - I believe it was written to check where the XP drops are configured to appear, and put itself somewhere else. So if you set your XP drops to be central, the favour display should move itself to a corner. You may find that less obtrusive.

If Kourend is one corner of Zeah, does that mean there's another 75% of land mass intended to come in future batches?

I doubt it'd be another 75% of land mass, but we do have a lot more ideas for future batches of Zeah.

Theres a lot of blue sea underneath The Great Kourend, will we see new combat equipment in the foreseeable future? :D

Um...

We've had a fair bit of interest in our plans for randomly generated group raiding dungeons as a Zeah expansion batch. That kind of place would seem like a good way to introduce new high-end combat kit in future, if players agree.

However we would not necessarily have to do it in the sea.

Would be nice to be able to get on :p

Big update, big community trying to download it once, bit of a queue. Sorry.

I'm loving the new music Ash, great job! 'The Forlorn Homestead' is very pretty :)

Thank you. Mod Bond from the main Audio team wrote five music tracks for our Kourend update; the other four are from me. Forlorn Homestead is one of mine.

i just got ensouled bloodveld head in the stronghold slayer cave what is that?

New item for use in necromancy.
When you've unlocked the Arceuus House spellbook, you'll be able to reanimate things like that.
It can be traded.

Kieren's announced that the crane respawn time is being reduced soon.

Fe Aura said:
Just one more question, do you actually lose a daily % of the gained respect or were those just rumors?

You do not. We may have discussed it as a possible mechanism, but we ultimately did not do make favour decay over time.

Ichiran said:
so no herblore update with zeah?O_o

Not directly, though I imagine people exploring will burn through some energy potions in the process.

Still waiting for those old mining rock models...

Yes, we used them for the new mining areas in Kourend, but felt that it wasn't desperately urgent to change the rocks in the rest of the game at the same time. It'll come.

Whats wrong with the cranes on the docks?

They've got a rather low speed for re-breaking. Mod Jed has just reduced it, so you should find they re-break more often in future.

Great work. The graphics and the music are fantastic. I love how each individual area is so well done with its own theme and fitting music. I especially love the track "The Milita". the piano melody in the song is just gorgeous. Well done!

Credit to Mod Bond for The Militia. Five of the new tracks are from him, and his Country Jig may be my new favourite song in the game.

Are there any teleports to and around Zeah available?

There's various other things, such as the spell on the standard spellbook, but they all need unlocking from the Zeah end first.

Hosidius task 3 tells me to use the spirit tree patch, so it isn't competable without 83 farming?

It's telling you that you've got enough favour to use that spirit tree patch if you so wish; it is not telling you that you're expected to do so. You can carry on doing other tasks around the area to earn favour until you unlock the tithe farm.

gwagwaz said:
I have been looking for where to take the fertilizer for Hosidius house for 30 minutes...can anyone tell me where i should take it? Any mods know? It says make the fertilizer for rep but that doesn't generate any reputation.

South-west of the Hosidius bank is a little storage unit. The clerk can take it directly from your bank.

Could you have a look at the charcoal burners and see if the time it take to convert the logs is correct.

Yes, it's more like a fruit tree than a hops patch. That's why you get a lot of charcoal from a full complement of juniper logs.

The Contact NPC spell lets you check up on it remotely.

So as a pure i would like to know which families gives defence exp, because i wont be happy if i gain that or prayer. any mod can tell me? :)

The Shayzien tasks may give you training manuals that act a bit like genie lamps for combat skills, but provided you don't choose Defence XP they don't give you Defence XP.

The necromancy spellbook is a prayer-training activity, so do not do that.

Facemask is not working O_o

Works for me. Or a gasmask.
You'd take more damage from the clouds if you didn't have either of those equipped.

Thanks for the quick reply, Mod Ash.

However, there is a total of 5700 compost needed. Don't you think it's a rather high number...

You're not obliged to stick to that one task all the way from 0% to 100%. If that's what you're doing, then yes, it will feel like a very high number indeed. However I'd have hoped you wouldn't do it exclusively like that.
