We've had players ask us to make the essence mining section of RC more interactive (and other players asking that it be left alone). In this update, it's not changed. That doesn't stop us changing it in future - and I'd like to thank the players who've sent me proposals for exactly how they'd like it changed - though there's very much a split in opinions here. Essence mining was never exactly an interactive activity before; in fact, that's why we've generally added features to stop you having to mine pure essence yourselves anyway. The rest of the RC process is considerably more click-intensive, especially if you're chiseling while running for an optimal XP rate.

It would be great if JMods updated Grand Exchange so that you could choose from witch player to buy. Something similar to the Trading Post options.

The GE's core code was originally written in 2007 when RS was about to get a trade restriction. So it was designed to prevent players being able to trade with a specific partner. Obviously we're not getting a trade restriction like that in OSRS, but we (like RS3) have still got the same GE system. I'm afraid it's not likely to get redesigned anytime soon.

If you want to trade with a specific player, we've just added a convenient way of seeing the prices of your offers so that you can do it a bit more safely than before :)

Could you poll removing the charges on the Gricoller's Can? Those of us who bought it, did so expecting it to be like the Magic Watering Can from Fairytale Part 3. Now I left it in my bank to rot for all eternity :(

Quest rewards make sense as a one-off. For a minigame reward, there's a bit of mileage in having a reason for players to pop back occasionally to get a recharge. But I'd be happy to put the charges up x10 or more, so you don't have to pop back very often at all.

Here we are, having a conversation about a watering can, whilst everyone else is having a heated debate about RC.

Which I'm finding well worth reading, yup.

Why not add some high value seeds to the shop, similar to what Vinesweeper had? Obviously with well balanced point costs...
Having the Farming Outfit, Seed bag and Gricoller's Can as one-off rewards, and seeds/mix for consistent reward would make for a nice varied reward shop.

We're up for introducing consumables like seeds. At the time of launch, we considered it, but weren't sure whether it'd be well received, so we held off, but it was always something we'd have considered for a polled expansion.

The reason why we want an infinite can, rather than a charge based one, is because we want a can that doesn't change item ID constantly.

The current can doesn't change item ID. But if the shop gets consumable rewards of another type, it'd be fine to remove the recharging mechanic.
