Old School Content Poll #54: Binding spells, F2P Castle Wars, etc. (07-Jul-2017 15:26:30)



We'd like to increase the viability of the standard spellbook and the Preserve prayer, as well as granting F2P some access to Castle Wars and improving the Lighthouse dungeon.

There's also a large bunch of smaller quality-of-life jobs from your many requests.

This poll will close on Thursday 13th July.

Question 8 Should a new binding spell, Shackle, be added to the normal spellbook? It will require level 92 Magic, and each cast would require 5 Nature runes, 6 Earth runes, and 6 Water runes.
