Bottomless Compost Bucket: Can it be stored at the leprechaun?

Anima Patch: Says four seeds can be planted here, but only lists three. Having them die is a good balance, but some people like to have their farming spots filled. Maybe lesser variants that are persistent? Or something else that can be planted.

Other farming: Farming contracts look generally annoying. Seeds should certainly be rare, but IDK if I'm comfortable with them being just through the farming boss and those. Maybe could add some of the new seeds as a potential reward from tithe farming.

Slayer: Looks good.

Brimstone ring: Not sure how comfortable I am with such a powerful hybrid ring. Lower the str bonus?

Bonecrusher necklace: Looks a bit excessive

Ferocious gloves: Not comfortable giving melee the extra str bonus with a tradable pair of gloves. Quests deserve at least some BIS items, don't they?

Dragon knives: "Melee str: 30" ??? Also the spec mentions darts, not knives.

Fishing: Looks cool.

Kourend Diary: Again, looks nice. Will the shayzien helmet 5 combo with slayer helm add any stats? Cosmetic variants? Will it be recolorable?

More House Quests: They seem nice, but once again, people that completed their house favor before the quests came out are getting the short end of the stick. If you have 100% in the respective house, can there at least be some minor additional reward, like 5k gp or something?
Don't forget – RuneScape members get TWO free spins a day instead of the usual one!

Everything looks good.

I don't like how BIS offensive gloves are just straight up buyable instead being locked behind a quest or even the Zeah diaries. Meanwhile barrows glove you have to do a ton of quests with skill requirements to be able to obtain and wield them.

Should make the hydra drop an attachment to the barrows gloves.

Bottomless Bucket
Nice little idea, but is it supposed to hold 10 thousand charges or 1 million? Not super useful for people who use Fertile Soil, but a good niche use for others.

Anima Patch
I'd make it last a week to make it fit with other weekly things instead, since making it "biweekly" like that can make it more of a chore. The Kronos Seed in particular feels odd, since it likely won't have many practical uses (what's the point if only one of your trees/herbs/etc skips a growth stage? You're only going to do your farm run when all of them have completed their growth).

Celastrus Patch
I'd be fine with it if it means battlestaff drops from monsters/bosses were reduced, otherwise it's just more high-alchemy content to make inflation worse.

Redwood Patch
It's the only woodcutting tree left, I guess, but why would someone go cut it instead of the ones at the WC guild? It may end up just becoming another farming exp source without much practical use.

Large Compost Bin
I like it, but it will mean at least 2 runs to the bank to fill it, which is my only nitpick.

Dragonfruit Trees and White Lily
Useful, I like it.

Potato Catci and Snape Grass
Anything to remove the resource drops from NMZ.

Continued as I got to the character limit in the last post.

BRIMSTONE

Slayer Master
I get it that it's not supposed to fill any gap, but it's weird that its requirement (75 combat) is so close to Chaeldar's (70), the "unique" loot table reward also doesn't seem to be super useful, though I might end up being wrong.

Sulphur Lizards
I can hear many newbies rejoicing for the fact that they'll never again be forced to go to the desert.

Wyrm
I'd put just the harpoon in their drop table, leave the sword for another monster that severely needs to drop something, like the Spiritual Warrior (you can even put the thrown-axes into the Spiritual Rangers' drop table as well).

Drake
The Brimstone Boots seems fine, I imagine that they can be used instead of the Boots of Stone to access the dungeon.

As for the Devout Boots, please don't turn it into another Ranger Boots and cause its price to skyrocket. It's likely that the Drake Tooth will be even more common than the boots itself.

Hydra
The Brimstone Ring might be useful if it gets an imbue option. If it does, I hope you at least make it degrade (and be repaired with gold) to not just completely devalue DK rings.

For the Bonecrusher Necklace... I don't think that it will make it useful. If you want to truly give it an use, consider giving it the Salve Amulet bonus to undeads while worn, Salve Ammy is an actual item that's so cheap that it's not an issue if it's devalued, and most undeads don't drop bones anyway, so it's not like it would become an overpowered item.

Alchemical Hydra
Ferocious Gloves is the proper melee gloves we've been waiting for. The Dragon Lance might not be necessary, but I'm fine with it. And the Dragon Knives are the only Dragon item left to be added, I guess.

Aerial Fishing
Equippable rods are nice, but I guess overall it's just new fishing training method.

Wow! As a skiller and collector of rare rewards, I'm going to be busy for a while at these pieces of content. I just have some questions.

Bottomless Compost Bucket - says it can hold up to 1 million of any 1 compost, but also says it can hold 10,000 charges. So, is it 1 million or 10,000?
- can we have multiple of these at once filled with different or the same compost?
- can we store it with a tool leprechaun?
- can it be filled with compost from a compost bin?
- can it be filled with the "Fertile soil" spell?
- would it count as farmer payment for farmers that ask for compost (if we also had empty buckets in our inventory)?

Boots of Brimstone and Devout Boots - will these count as boots of stone in Karuulm Slayer Dungeon, considering they're made out of boots of stone?

Anima patches - what's the fourth plant that can be planted?

Dragon Hunter Lance - I know the purpose of using it on the zamorakian hasta, considering the hasta is BIS for its category and then we'd make a BIS melee weapon for killing dragons (like Vorkath), but because it's called a Dragon Hunter Lance, is it bad that I want it to be added to something dragon-related? (Like dragon weaponry). This is more of a personal preference - I wouldn't vote no to using it on the zamorakian hasta anyway :)

Hespori Patch - will this also have a pet? Pet hype.

Aerial Fishing - will there be pets? Pet hype.

Diary hype. Quest hype.

I'm excited for the coming content!

Might I ask why? Barrows Gloves won't be devalued because of this, it still provides the best bonuses overall, specially in terms of defence. Anyone who can afford these gloves (which most likely will cost 30m+) have already completed RFD. That quest is mid-high level content at most, not end game content. Pures also can't use these gloves, as they require 70 defence.

The location of the farming guild is horrible.

With a war between the lizardmen and the rest of Kourend going on, how does the farming guild appear to be in such great shape? Do the NPCs at the guild know that they could be in danger? The only thing between the lizardmen and the guild is a small river, which you can just walk around!

Why are there farmers all the way out there, anyways? Are they rogue Hosidius farmers growing illegal herbs? There is no reason for it to be so far away from home. Put it over by Hosidius.
