Great Ideas, but 82 slayer is a low lvl req. Can't you make it 90+? I'm trying to avoid areas where it'll be camped by botters/ people who just want to afk grind out gold. Wyverns is already heavily camped by afk/rangers and botters, it's very competitive. Making the req 82 slayer which can easily be obtained within less than a week. I feel like it's easy enough to power lvl slayer via catacombs. Looking forward to a good update. Until then see you later. Set stuff to private because I know you'll have the odd weirdo looking up your profile :P

Can you please tell me how you get 82 slayer in a week?!?! I've been back in OS RS for over a year and love doing slayer and am still only lvl 77...

The new wyvern area presented here is locked behind multiple quests and a decent slayer req.

90+ slayer requirement would make no sense at all
Rune - slayer drop at 80(?)
Granite - slayer drop at 82
Dragon - slayer drop at 83
Makes perfect sense to stay in order, not have it 90+ lmfao...

Can you make the rewards from lava mining a bit more attractive, not many people do blast mining, as exp is fine but gp per hour sucks. What exactly are small amount of ores and fossils? What is the gp per hr look like?

What the hell are you talking about? At 85 Mining, Blast Mining is like 60k xp and 600k profit per hour. That's actually pretty good, especially for Mining.

This new minigame can reach 75k xp per hour at 85 Mining, so giving it anywhere near the profit of Blast Mining is objectively IMBALANCED.

If they won't reduce the xp rate any lower than 75k xp at level 85, then it should only be like 100k gp profit per hour or something. It should even be less than Motherlode Mine, since while it is AFK the xp is very slow.
Our patience has its limits. One day we will shut those dirty, lying EasyScapers' mouths.

Fight for Old School. No HD. Never capitulate.

@Waytooposted Advice for power lvling slayer - Skipping time consuming tasks such as spiritual tasks. If you don't like skipping tasks such as this, my advice would be get kc then do a few bosses. Cata combs ankous,abysall demons,jellies/nechs can be fused together into 1x1 square which you can burst/chin, this is achieved by using corners to align them. With the lower lvl mobs you will probably make a loss small at that but when your slayer lvl is higher you'll be inprofit. For creatures in mutli that are not burstable, tag it with a serp helm and then switch back to slayer helm. When you're killing kalphites with a cannon or cannoning in general, use any godsword with a warrior ring. I personally think this is a myth but w.e, each to their own. When you have boring single combat tasks and they tend to be aggressive monsters, afk the task with prayer bonus gear. Or use super pots.

Fyi, even if you're 90+ magic, still burst as it's effective with slayer helm + occult and doesn't cut into your profits, i've even bursted with full mystics at 123 cmb.

Why are you offering a range defence with the granite boots? Neither the rune boots or dragon boots have range defence. Finally we have signatures in the surprise forum update.

Wondering about the change in the herb monster tracking mechanics... I'm almost positive that in the original dev blog it said that you had to feed herb seeds to the animal and wait for it to grow before harvesting, like a herb patch. You would then return, track the animal and catch it, rewarding you with hunter xp and herblore xp. Has this idea been scrapped? I liked the idea of having the herbs rewarded being directly influenced by the seeds it has been fed.

That is one of the quirks of granite if you look at all the other granite equipment it all has unusually high ranged defence bonus the other being it weighs alot.


I'm glad the barren 40-60 melee grind is finally being tackled but I think the granite sword is a bit ridiculous conceptually if you really want a slash weapon made of granite and in the 50 attack/str ranged then a better idea would be a club with the same stats but with crush and slash swapped, which you can then use wyvern or maybe even fossil fangs on to create a club sword which would have the same stats as the proposed longsword.
