Dagannoth Lair Solutions
The Dagannoth Kings are a popular boss choice for many players, prized for the valuable rings they drop. One of the common requests we see come up is for additional lairs in which to fight the DKs, specifically an on-task only room.
We're keen to provide a solution to the problem. So instead of outright polling a suggestion, we'd like to take this opportunity to discuss the issue in depth with you a little more, before deciding what we'd like to offer.
One of the important issues that causes us hesitation is the impact this would have on the value of the rings. The Archers, Seers, Berserker and Warrior Rings are staple high value items, and this would introduce them into the game at a higher rate than usual.
The options we propose are as follows, and we're keen to hear your opinions on each as we head to the Poll:
We're interested to hear what you have to say on the issue, and will discuss ideas with the community as they arise.
Elysian Shield Changes
The Elysian Spirit Shield has been one of the most prestigious prizes in Old School Runescape since the introduction of the Corporeal Beast. We've seen requests to improve it
slightly given the power of the Raids Rewards.
We'd like to offer the suggestion of making the Elysian's damage reduction effect apply to many attacks that hit through Protection Prayers.
This would apply to attacks by the following NPCs:
Divine Spirit Shield
Additionally, we're keen to gauge the sentiment regarding the Divine Spirit Shield. As a reminder, the Divine Spirit Shield carried a 100% chance of reducing incoming damage by 30%, at a cost of draining your Prayer points by 50% of that 30% reduction.
So we will be asking "How do you feel about the divine shield? This will help us decide what to poll in future – if anything."
The available options will be:
"1. It should drop as a sigil that is added to an elysian shield to create the divine shield.
2. It should drop as a sigil that is added to a blessed spirit shield as before.
3. It should not be added to OSRS.
4. Skip question."
