Why is the friend list limited to just 400?

I guess that's what the system was able to handle after its last expansion. As the chat systems of OSRS are linked inextricably to the other RS, etc., it's not something we can so easily get changed in their game engine on demand. The same issue can also restrict what we're able to do with chat-channels (which is quite relevant to today's update).

How exactly do you get the unique rewards as drops or do you buy them using points?

You'll be awarded loot if you got to the end of the raid, and had contributed to the team's progress. It might be one of the unique items, or it might just be a little something to help recompense you for the supplies you might have brought in.

Getting a unique based on points or rng?

If your party's getting any, they'd be awarded randomly within the party - but skewed towards players with more points. And if you have no points, it won't be you.

No mention of the Wand or the Elder Maul or the Dragon Sword! Is this just a mistake? Are these items not being released with this update?

They're out, yeah. There's not much to say beyond what was in the blog, tbh.

You're correct, they were indeed polled and released with Raids in some form.

To be a little more helpful, one of the items you might receive from Raids is a scroll that unlocks a prayer. (It's tradeable.)

I havent really been following updates, were is it located?

Mount Quidamortem is found to the south-west of Kourend. There's a gateway leading out from the Shayzien area.

UPDATE HAPPENED I WAS MID STAKE WITH KECH AND WE HAD 50M EA I WAS WINNING LOGGED IN NO CASH LOOKED FOR HIM HE TOLD ME I WON I TOLD HIM I HAD NO CASH AND HE SAID L0L AS DID I SO WHERES THE CASH GONE?????

Logging out mid-duel is not supposed to be a guaranteed way to get your stake back, I'm afraid. We don't recommend doing that kind of activity during the update countdown - and Thursday mornings do tend to be reboot time over the last 4 years.

You state parties can scale up to 100 users - is there a minimum party size?

No, you can go in there by yourself if you like, but we didn't set out to guarantee it'd be completeable like that. I expect players will find a way eventually though.

Mortis Umbra said:
Does loot scale with party size? I don't think people should be punished for 'not having 99 friends online' or wanting to deal with the cancer on randoms. Best I can hope to play with is 5 people on a good day...

We don't expect everyone to have parties of 100 by any means - 5 is a perfectly reasonable raid, and is actually what we're expecting most raids to be after the launch rush dies away. Though if there's more people in there, it makes sense to have more stuff to share among them.

What happends if you die within the raids?

You respawn inside the dungeon, having dropped the raids-specific items you'd gathered in there, but keeping everything else. You lose quite a lot of points, and your party loses points too, so it's bad if you want to get loot.

Shit0Shit said:
TBH I NEVER HEARD OF THESE WARNINGS I KNOW THAT IF SOME1 DOES LOGOUT DURING A STAKE THERE IS STILL A WINNER. HOWEVER THIS CASH JUST DISAPPEARED.????

The countdown timer is not actually a new feature; in fact it's existed for about 15-16 years, advising people to log out safely. As both of you would have logged out, neither of you appears to be the winner, and logging out is not supposed to be a safe method of getting your stake back on demand.

thx 4 the update. how are things going for runescape wise after dis? Where will we go after this I mean. I mean I try my damndest to make sure things run smoothly so wen they don't go the way I'd like them too, I panic, admitted.

I'm not sure quite what you're asking about, but coming up in future weeks we've got Maz's silver jewellery (in development - still some weeks away) and probably a bunch of Raids feedback tweaks too, since people have sent a few good ideas that we liked but couldn't include for launch.

Shit0Shit said:
lol so wheres the cash?

Lost. Please log out safely when there's a reboot coming. They're very common on Thursday mornings, and there's a countdown timer to warn you.

We're in a really big team and all of us die, just lose all the personal points we've made so far?..

You lose yours, and the team loses a comparable quantity. But I expect you'll work out better tactics as you get accustomed to it, and will die a lot less.

PART0 said:
Are Raids available on the Permanent Deadmanmode world?

No, though one of the late changes we made to Raids was to block teleports in there, meaning that anyone using them would have to enter/exit via Mount Quidamortem. Which would increase the risk fairly dramatically, so it's not out of the question to enable it in future.
