The walls around the city already exist. I don't see why you would want to change them; it seems like the best way to keep with the old school lore/feel would be to just leave them alone.

Why did you get rid of the herb patch question? Did it truly seem like it would fail, or did a vocal minority complain that 1 herb patch would be some kind of catastrophic integrity issue?

THE GAUNTLET - ONE HUGE ISSUE: FASHIONSCAPE Please let us take capes in!! Pleaseee. Even if the cape was to have no stats when inside, I just can't live without my achievement cape on.

Another thing are the crystal tools - aren't they a bit OP? Not sure about those.

Apart from that, great update, can't wait to get to Prifddinas. Just let me take my cape into the Gauntlet please! <3

Agreed. Do not change the graphics. Old School is 2007 at the latest, not 2009... btw.


Also, you should apply a similar bonus to the Crystal Shield when wearing Crystal armor, but for defense instead of offense.
Long live the Wilderness. Long live risk vs reward in PVM. Long live 2006.

any chance of an area with improved elves/or a higher amount of cannonable elves? Prif seems to be a great chance to make this slayer task more attractive. as of now its usually advised to just skip them

maybe a dark beast boss or sumthing aswell

I'm glad you took in some of the feedback.

However, you probably missed the most important part, and that's the stats of Crystal gear. Crystal Gear will be the first major step in breaking the triangle, oddly enough with mage, just like what happened before EoC with polypore.

Allow me to explain because I'm sure a few of you are like what do you mean it has no mage bonuses...

EXACTLY - it is tank gear with no negative mage attack. It will break the triangle horribly. Plug those numbers in with a mage with otherwise maxed gear and wearing some of this new gear vs a ranger in their max gear. Tell me who has better dps?

Please update it's stats...

Good job on the single piece boosts though, crystal bow with a helm/legs might be viable.
My Suggestions:
Cross Minigame Reward Shop - waiting since December 26th 2013
Spelunking - non-combat raids

The pickaxe is a very silly idea. 10k charges that means 10k runite ores can be mined with it, which actually means even more ore because of diaries and expert mining gloves.....It should be like 5 or 10 charge/ore or scale it to the level of the ore, or just make the item non-decaying and it's solved. I mean one crystal pickaxe would be enough for the rest of my entire OsRs career, why even make it decay? Makes 0 sense.

I feel your point but 1 extra tick on rune ore is pretty small. Not to mention its only 25% chance to hit that tick. So its really .25 ticks faster on like 10-20 ticks. Wont make a huge impacts. What your forgetting though, is all the iron that will get power mined with it. 10k charges can get blown through in 5 hours.

The tools have to degrade or it wont fit with the lore. Every crystal item you get from the elf quests degrades.

The sifficulty in the equipment is locked behind the quest itself. Its a pretty long series to get through, and most players cant be bothered. I think you’ll notice that te main people get this equipment will have quest capes.

Awesome update team. Cant wait.
