So your updated news post today says:

"We'll also add an option to the Slayer rewards menu to stop Slayer masters assigning you Fossil wyverns, for a fee of 80 points. This will not count towards the number of tasks you've blocked."

I've already spent 100 points to block them and they ARE taking up a space on my blocked task list.. how will you deal with that.. will you refund the difference in points.. and remove it from taking up the space on the blocked task list? Or are those who've already paid the points and used the space on the blocked list just sol?

The underwater thieving/agility is already good, it doesn't need a buff. And I do consider allowing players to choose which skill the xp goes to a buff, since it's going to be the new highest agility xp/h in the game. If the popularity of content is so important why not make changes to long outdated content instead? Why is creating more buzz around Fossil Island so important? How about instead of artificially boosting the popularity of already balanced content, Jagex just focuses on making more good content?

This really just shows that the goal for new content is popularity over balance and quality, which is a real shame. Forget the underwater thieving, just look at the fact that you're talking about making high level passive hunter xp. I guess that's good for me because my hunter level isn't anything to brag about but it just seems so out of place and I don't think it's the right direction for the game. If you're looking for something to buff, pick some long-forgotten interesting piece of content that actually needs it. Let players discover how good Fossil Island is on their own without making any hasty changes.

This is seriously the most spaghetti design I've seen in my life. Please come up with a cleaner solution: either buff FI wyverns to the point that they're actually desirable or group all wyverns into one task. Giving everyone this bizarre one-off block is inconsistent with slayer and pretty much guarantees that everyone will block them without a second thought, which I'm sure is the exact opposite of what you want as content developers.

Can we get a diary for fossil island?

The Boss should be geared towards players in the 80-100 combat range and only able to be unlocked from rare fossil sets.

Can we still get exp from collecting fossil sets after we've completed the Varrok Museum displays? I am currently almost done, but have several small fossil and medium fossil sets.
