WHERE'S OUR SILVER JEWELRY?

In testing. Maz has done the code work, and now it's being checked to ensure it works.

How would i be a mod in game i have played since 2006?

The Support team picks people. They'd expect you to have a decent record of not breaking rules, and good account security.

I wonder, will there be someday new slayer bosses requiring 89 slayer to kill, Right now the current slayer bosses require 85, 87, 91 and 93. For me a level 89 one misses in the list =P

We've not been planning one specifically at 89, but we do like filling up the skills towards 99.

Though, just curious, does Augury provide effective magic defence based on both the magic level boost and the boost to your plain defence level?

Your magic defence has a component from your Magic level and a component from your Defence level. Both are buffed by the prayer.

The only things that really concern me are Jagex's refusal to pay as much attention to their own forums as they do social media...

We go to the external sites because the discussion takes place there already, and in a lot of cases those specialist sites can provide a nicer medium and format for the discussion. It's definitely not the case that we regard those players' opinions higher than the people here.

... and their willingness to try to bypass or repeat polls to get certain things implemented in the game.

I don't agree that something should be permanently blocked because it failed a poll once. Situations change, and players' opinions change too. When we polled trading solutions in mid-2014, it seemed pretty clear that a GE wasn't widely supported. Then in 2015 suddenly it was.

There's also a lot of scope for a repoll to be different. If new armour fails a poll, there's plenty of reasons why people might have voted No. The stats, for example. Or the appearance. Or even the source of the item. Those things can be changed, and offered in a new form.

After all, we pitched a dragon platebody drop from some high-end Slayer monster a long time ago, and the players' response was very negative, mostly focusing on "Dragon items shouldn't come from Slayer". Fine, it hasn't, But in future we could still offer the dragon platebody from some more appropriate source (e.g. a quest).

As for things that aren't polled, I'm afraid that's not really an option. I'm sure some players loved the infinite free money duping bug in Ratcatchers, but we weren't waiting for a week to get permission to fix the game. Similarly, there'll be things - including the company's policies on topics such as gambling games and rules - that cannot be left for customers to decide. We try to avoid these things happening, but will never be able to promise you 100% control over everything that can ever affect the game.

When are we able to recolor our Rock Golem pet using ores?

It passed its poll, so should be along in the coming weeks. Along with other things from the recent polls. For this week we were prioritising things that remained undelivered from last year's polls.

btw when can see a pvp related minigame like soul wars?

No date is set.

and is mod ronan still in favour of the idea of revenant caves?

I don't imagine that would have changed.

Ravenblade said:
Does this mean you think the augury prayer is in need of a buff, and that it's not currently as useful as you'd like it to be?

It means that we think the Augury prayer is less beneficial than the Rigour prayer, and we think that players feel the same way. We have not pitched a rebalance to try and change this, but your suggestion of increasing damage could be a way to go.

Not that I'm not totally stoked the Scream-esque Halloween event is now permanent content, but didn't that fail a poll?

No. See poll 49, question 3. It scored 75.03%.

I was all excited to get a brand new haircut in Falador this morning. WHERE ARE THEY??? :P

Mod Ghost's got most of the GFX done, but still needs to make chatbox versions of the heads.

Are we still going to see the option to buy the original graceful armour set in the next coming updates?

It didn't pass its poll.

Love the updates. Mod allstar posted on a thread regarding OSRS forum upgrade. Any news on whether you guys might reconsider looking into it?

He'd be more likely to be the one doing it; I'm afraid I've no news on it. Mind you, we've mostly been asking him for highscore-related stuff rather than that.
