Note : I know this is probably the wrong section for this but its my best chance.

Quite right, this wasn't the right section for this. The work of a community manager is rather more diverse than the player-facing things you might expect, encompassing a lot of marketing duties and event planning. Having Mod Stone join us does help, and will help more when he's got even more familiar with stuff here, but we still need another full-time employee.

yo mod ash, any update on double death runes at 99 rc?

Along with a few thousand other player suggestions, that is not actually in today's update, but there's reasonable support for polling it in future.

Any more news on the Skotizo helm/pet?

The artists weren't able to give me an ETA on when they'd have the GFX done for that. Maz is set to do the code side of it all when she has the GFX.

We could - though it already has an option for renting a private room.

Has the slayer ring had any new teleports added to it for this update? afterall some of the new dungeons are quite out of the way.

It has not, though I think you'll find access routes to them already exist.

I recently constructed a fairy ring in my house, do you think that will be more convenient then teleporting to Legend's Guild via a Quest Cape? Thanks.

Depends how convenient it is for you to teleport to your house, perhaps.

Would be nice if they added more brutal blacks spawns in the future
They are way more crowded than the normal black dragons.

Yeah, that'd be a reasonable thing for, perhaps, a future catacombs expansion.

Didn't that poll fail at 69.7%?
Also, was relocating the Kalphite Hive polled? I don't recall.

Look at the in-game poll booths, which can correctly eliminate "skip question" votes from the totals. It passed with 78.6%.
(Obviously we've asked the web team to make the website poll pages do the same calculation, though their time is frustratingly limited. They haven't had a chance to fix the Jagex logo at the bottom of our news history webpages either.)

The kalphite section of Nieve's dungeon was moved, like all the other sections of her dungeon that were moved, for which the poll got 89.6%. However, no changes were made to the original Kalphite Hive which is elsewhere in the Kharidian Desert.

Have you considered adding regular (not the bosses) cave krakens/ smoke devils somewhere you can kill them while not being on task?

I could see a lot more drops like tridents coming into the game if we did that. It's not a change I'd recommend.

Any chance you can add ancient shards and totem piece drops to demons in the Chasm of Fire? ... While the new place looks amazing, there doesn't seem to be that much of an incentive to go there compared to the catacombs where you can get shards/ totem pieces.

If you want task-only demons - which are conveniently close together, and have a fairy ring nearby - this is where you can find them now they're not in Nieve's cave. You're welcome to train on other demons elsewhere if that's not an incentive for you.

Any news about adding more abyssal demon rooms in catacombs?

We just added more abyssal demon spawns. Again, they're not trying to be more generous than the ones from Nieve's cave, but they'll hopefully be available for you to do Slayer on when you need to.

P.s. off-topic question if I may: Can you make elite clues consistent with other clues and make them last 5-7 steps?

Do you see that affecting the value of the elite trail rewards?

Never doing another metal dragon task again, it used to be nice and slow to begin with but worth doing for the chance of a visage and the money from bones.
It is now so far from anywhere you may as well bury the bones or just block the task which is what I will be doing.

Fair enough, if you don't want to do them. Though the new entrance to the Brimhaven dungeon, near Tai Bwo Wannai Village, makes it considerably easier to get to metal dragons.

A lot of these new caves are near existing teleport destinations already, even if it's not as convenient as walking into the same cave over and over again for every destination. We could add them to the Slayer ring in future, though that would make it capable of going back and forth between a lot of places, so we'd want to be cautious about that.

Why didn't just add the new stuff and leave nieves cave alone.

Have a read of the blog about why we suggested changing it. Then it got 89.6% in a poll - turns out convenience wasn't everyone's priority here.

As for blue dragons, the code I did for today's update makes it pretty easy to add more task-only areas in future, assuming you'd want any such new blue dragons to be task-only.
