Raids Tweaks & QOL

Wasn't it supposed to save runes on offensive casts in the first place?
Yes, and it now does.
Any reason Dev Blog portions are now censored?
Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean there. We're posting news on the site rather than in the main body of the forum thread because we've finally got a permanent news archive, which is a lot better than having to hunt threads in here.
...overtime it would have driven Bandos armour prices a lot lower, and in effect, would have eventually made the community warm up to want a newer tier melee set...
I'd rather have the demand for higher-tier kit arise because of players wanting the stats and abilities, not because of the price.
Could we have a list of monsters that were altered to drop challenge scrolls when previously they did not?
The aim was that anything in the species should do it. For example, only certain skeletons did it before, specifically the ones with round shields. Now they should all do it. Maz has spent a lot of time trawling the game to find the creatures that needed updating for this
Also without being annoying, just wondering on the estimated time this update will take?
There's a little countdown on the screen telling you when the reboot is due (about 11.17am GMT), and reboots typically take a couple of mins once they happen. Though you may find things a bit slow for a while after a reboot as everyone downloads the update.

I can't support this idea to be honest, originally I was in favour of an Ironman specific Pmod icon, but after a lot of discussion I realized it would only create more 'Pmod envy' to be creating more 'special symbols' -- you can still identify an Ironman by trading them, looking them up on the hiscores, or viewing their default armour.
I believe we can plug in more icon variants if they're needed, but - as this player says - perhaps we shouldn't. Maybe it'll become more apparent which way it needs to go once there are some Iron Pmods out there.
Are ironmen able to use the private parts of the chest in raids? (you may have already mentioned so but asking anyway thanks).
They can use it unless they're Ultimate.
Question: Will there be a dev blog before the graphics qol poll to get feedback and gather more suggestions?
I'm afraid that poll's open already. There's a limit to how much GFX work the artists can actually deliver in a reasonable time-frame, so we're not up for shoving more suggestions in.
You cant just keep changing items when they are in game already. Im so glad I sold my bow, But its just not fair on people. Do you not test the items before getting them in game lmfao?
If something needs changing, I'm afraid leaving it isn't a great option.
It was indeed tested and confirmed to be acting in accordance with the design; the design seemed reasonable enough, even to get past the players in a poll, but that's still no substitute for players actually getting to grips with the item in all the possible places it could be used.
Since im only playing Deadmanmode / Seasonals i would like to only Reply to that updates, i Mean okay, you bring in Raids to DMM great so the OP Players will be even more OP, okay, but then If you do a BIG Update like that, why you Can't bring in the Grand Exchange to W45? shouldn't be as big of a Update as Raids is...
We didn't actually have to recreate the whole of Raids to make it available on w45. So while it may look like a big update to you, it's a small change. Like flipping a switch.
Whereas getting a new GE server set up and having the game engine reprogrammed to point at it - that's not something we could have had the engine team just knock out for you in a few spare moments in between their many other duties.
...where do i find the Forum which relies on Feedback for W45 such as the Door Stalin stuff i said.
I'm not aware of a dedicated forum for that topic, but I'd have no objection to seeing the change made that you described, provided we could tie it reliably to the opening of doors. (Which isn't guaranteed.)
Sir RngAlot said:
I can't help but notice how RS3 is getting all the attention and OldSchool is left on the backlane.
That's fine but I think it would've been better and more beneficial for all of us if it had a separate membership package (=more dev time).
We've come a long way from where we were in 2013 when the team had 4 staff and no-one expected OSRS to still be there 6 months later. Now we're on 14 with vacancies advertised and the likelihood of more, and the community's grown massively. We may not have the same number of staff as RS3, though I'd personally rather recruit directly from the OSRS playerbase and train people slowly, like we did for Kieren, Jed, John, Ronan, West and Roq. Not all the RS3 devs were around RuneScape in the 2004 -> pre-EoC era.
For what it's worth, if OSRS had been given a separate membership package, presumably you'd have expected a separate price. So would that be higher or lower? In the context of your suggestion, it sounds like you'd have wanted it higher so that there could be more resources on OSRS, but I very much doubt most players would have appreciated such a deal.
Anyway, your question seems to have been about the warhammer. Frankly, even if we threw another 40 devs & testers into the team, we'd always need to use the dev time sparingly, and I doubt we'd start doing extra dev work of that nature where it blatantly didn't need doing.
