Having the background of playing MOBA games like Dota 2 and LoL, I've always wondered why RuneScape is so secretive about certain aspects of the game.

Whereas in both MOBAs almost every little bit of information is given to the player. You could say they make it a priority. Everything from percentage to proc, movement speeds, and even turn rates are made public. Maybe it's because RuneScape is generally for the casual player, I don't know.

I support this change of heart. Nothing is going to appease everyone. But I hope you continue being transparent with your playerbase.

Hey guys,

Thanks you for all of your feedback so far, its been great. It's RuneFest tomorrow and for that reason, I haven't had a chance to get anything ready to release drop rates today. My apologies for that, we'll release the first drop rates next week at the same time of 10:00 game time.

Thanks,
Timbo

I think this is only fair... You 100% knew, or could check, about runefest before writing the dev blog.

On another note, one thing I didn't really see was barrows. I'm interested to see how it's been changed since akrisae+linza and totems have been added, whether it still keeps the +1 roll for all 8 wights, presumably drop rate caps off, whether kc matters for getting totems...
Also heard a rumor that you can't get pieces from the last brother if you kill him in tunnel because something something helped prevented more akrisae pieces coming into the game on release... but I wouldn't believe that (until its confirmed).

2 rates next week would be nice. I understand Runefest is 100% the biggest priority, but like Piron said the Runefest date was pre-determined so you already knew it would be happening and it shouldn't be an excuse :P
