Today's changes are definitely a step in the right direction but these are the changes I would personally like to see made.

1. Further buff the exp from underwater agility/thieving. My levels are in the low 70's and before the buff I was getting roughly 40k thieving and 10k agility an hour. I could do seer's agility for 50k an hour and blackjacking for 200k an hour. The buff from 1/10 to 1/8.5 is simply not enough to make 1 hour of underwater training a viable alternative to 30 minutes of blackjacking and 30 minutes of seer's agility. I really want it to be viable because underwater training is actually fun :)

2. Add some quality of life changes to mushroom woodcutting. For instance, add more hoop snakes to the magic mushroom teleport spot and make using the snake on tar bubbles walk you into their range rather than telling you "you're too far away."

3. I see that fossil drop rates for wyverns has already been buffed; I hope to see it buffed for the other activities as well. I wasn't expecting to need to do 20 hours of fossil island content just to unlock the mining game

4. Change the deranged archaeologist anti-safespot mechanic. Currently if you run away from the "learn to read" attack you might end up getting hit for a 50 anyways because you ran slightly too far away, it disincentivizes actually getting out of range of the "learn to read." Also I feel that the fact that his "learn to read" alone can hit upwards of 120 damage is a bit too punishing for a demiboss.

I haven't tested underwater fishing/hunter or the herbabore, but if they need to be buffed to be on par with current content then please do. It sucks having new and interesting content be too slow to be worth it.

What happened to the new PoH room that was mentioned before?

Is this update scrapped? Or will it be added later in the future?

Q&A - Thank you for the buff on the drops for the wyvern's they did need it though they could do with a bit extra like Dragon platelegs and skirt to the table as skeleton wyverns also that them so i don't see why they can't get them in the table just a idea.

Thank you for the amazing Updates so far i hope everything goes well with the planing i understand that there are more important things to worry about on the island and upcoming DMM Having a great time so far keep it up <3

Thanks for killing one of your most popular player's HCIM accounts. You guys honestly suck with your crappy updates. No one cares about fossil island anymore, it would've gotten so much more exposure if you weren't so incompetent.

Rip white cat22, best hcim ever. please roll back this update and create an island with a statue we can pray to, which causes a white cat to follow you forever. And make sure to put a plaque that we can examine leaving a nice sentence about how much you guys suck.

I thought the gay pride event was an amazing thing. It's showing the players that jagex welcomes everyone, ignoring gay pride during gay pride month would mean that they don't view the hardships on the LGBT community. Gay pride is about celebrating differences and coming together and I think that does have a place in oldschool.

I'm really dissapointed that i didn't make it to the event to grab the tie though. :c

I would have thought the rainbow tie would be in diangos shop but i was dissapointed to find out it wasn't. i thought you said theyre wouldnt be rare items in the game?


This is the most absurd nonsense I've read in a while.

You basically just accused Jagex of not caring about African/African-American people because they don't celebrate Black History Month in-game.

Your comment doesn't even relate to 'Fossil Island Feedback.'

Don't blame Jagex for his own mistake. Taste your words before you spit them out. We don't need more toxicity among us. Thanks.

The agility part is now bugged out, it sends a false marker for the next chest location.

Gaining 180 kudos just so you can use the mine is a joke at best.

I can't understand why or how the tele mushroom can kill you..but it can.

The island is small and nasty with little or no xp in any skill.

I would say good jobs chaps, but that would just be a lie.

It's a shame..i did hope i could come on the forums after the update with positive feedback after all the negative posts in the past...But alas no.

Well better luck next time...

I spend a good few hours killing ancient wyverns 1st day of release, it has been a pain and not rewarding at all. So consider that a waste the new update is another wasted update, it's profitable but how profitable. 200k an hour profitable. You either need to remove the tankyness from the ancient wyverns or double the loot the current drop table offers. 1 kill can use up a decent amount of resources and end up with a 10k loot. go demonics and 1 pray pot and shark can serve you a easily 10-40k kill. Set stuff to private because I know you'll have the odd weirdo looking up your profile :P
