Amazing changes. Any ETA on when the monkey room in TOA gets it's update?

Can't give you an ETA but I can tell you it's coming alongside the Combat updates for Project Rebalance. Shouldn't be too long.

Soon (TM) - joking aside, it shouldn't be too far away, but I can't confirm any ETAs just yet.

Something is wrong with the news feed.

The "Group Boss - Varlamore: Part Two" news from yesterday is shown as being the newest news while the uptade for today is shown as being second newest news.

Also the RRS feed didn't trigger for the boss post yesterday. Today the RRS feed notified about the boss post when the rebalance post was published.

Yeah, that was a mistake on my end, as I yeeted the HTML of this newspost on the Group Boss one. 🙃

Thanks for the flag, this has now been fixed.

Any update on the kebbit rumours? The nerf killed all enjoyment of rumours for me and i know it was the case for many others. I know there had been mentions of some discussions about it. I know they can't necessarily go back the way they were before, but adjusting deadfall or tracking kebbits would at least make it less painful to do.

I'm unsure of any further discussions that have been had among the team, but I'll raise it when I have a chance.

Will there be a refund for people who bought it already? Damn I just bought it last month oof.

Unfortunately no refunds for anyone who have already brought the gloves.

So I'm in the middle of grinding out a Pirate's hook, I have 300 "old" tickets saved up. Are these now useless? Or will I be able to purchase the hook with a combination of old tickets and new vouchers.

I raised this with the team and although there's nothing that will do that atm, we're going to look into be able to convert them into the new tickets. Hopefully will have more to share about this soon.

I feel like the Penguin agility course was left out from receiving Marks of Grace, any reason why that is?

We thought that we'd leave it with it's niche of being the best way to get the pet. Same with the Wildy Course giving you GP and Sepulchre having a bunch of rewards.

They'll be coming still, just require more time as our intention is to do a beta test too.

Only 3 and 4 have had a buff, but running all the floors hasn't had the XP/hr changed.

When you guys post here, is there a team of you chilling in a room on Reddit and twitter addressing comments? It’s cool to see multiple jmod replies in one thread, wondering if each question has a designated responder or something.

We do have an update call where we all can chat and monitor an update, I'm in one right now! Then there's normally at least one CM that will reply to things and then it's up to other members of the team if they want to interact etc :)

Just been told that the quest should check for the new tickets.

  • Added the Mining Outfit to the Volcanic Mine Reward Shop.
  • Removed both the Kudos requirement and the reward claim requirement.

Variants or variance? I would never make a spelling mitsake, so this is inexscewsable /u/JagexSarnie

The failure rate on Paladin and Heros for pick pocketing does not seem reduced, in fact the paladins seems to have been increased. Paladins had a 71% chance of success (before the update) with the most viable setup and these guys are slapping me around ardy

(First hard clue in 181 pickpockets)

Paladin
LOW:12 HIGH:150 to LOW: 35 HIGH: 160

Gnome
LOW:8 HIGH:120 to LOW: 33 HIGH: 140

Heros
LOW:6 HIGH:100 to LOW: 28 HIGH: 122

Loving those zalcano changes, is the loot now better than pre-update if you opt for less xp? (99 mining here!) or is it roughly the same? Also, when is instancing coming? Don't like bots crashing full teams

Loot + xp is the same as before if you don't opt out of resources.
Hopefully crashing isn't as problematic with the forced down changes, group sizes should feel more flexible now.

Ironman crafting reblance should be a priority. There shouldnt be only 1 viable method to a skill.

How many people have unsubscribed their ironman after doing 70 crafting?

if you struggle to get 70 crafting on an ironman then that gamemode is gonna have you in for a world of hurt

When will the soulreaper axe QoL changes be put into the live game? It feels like one of the few combat things people universally agree is a good change. It shouldn't have to wait for the huge batch of other controversial changes to be implemented.

All the combat stuff will be released at the same time

Amazing update. Any chance for shortcuts to a few clue steps, that are annoying to get to?

The step on the cliff next to Pollnivneach, and the step on the little Island northeast of Mos Le’harmless

Yeah I think there's loads more we could add in the future.

Gnomes have had their pickpocket failure rate reduced and now have an uncommon chance to provide Medium Clue Scrolls.

Is there a point in giving them a 1/20k clue drop?

no, that's why it's not 1/20k.

Did I miss something about the fossil island shortcut? It was proposed as.... "Fossil Island - Zip-line from the House on the Hill towards the small island where players can dive for Underwater activities. Requires 58 Agility." But I noticed its not in todays blogpost.

honestly I tried for quite a while to get this one to work, but we have issues animating players over map loading lines and I couldn't create anything I thought looked acceptable. Simple options would just be a fade to black and you magically appear on there but I that felt a bit too poor for my liking tbh.

Would like us to revisit this again in the future and maybe a better dev than I will come up with a creative idea to get around our tech constraints.

This is an amazing update with some potentially far-reaching and long lasting effects

Agility xp/hr buffs, Falador hard only needs prospectors helm, Efaritay's Aid might be useful?!, Guthix Rest aren't cancer to make, useful shortcuts

How faster are the shortcuts

at least 1 entire tick

I'm guessing that you're correct, but it could also be read as referring to where the alchemy spell is being cast from. "Players will no longer be warned when casting Alchemy [...] from within this room."

Don't worry, this only applies to Mage training arena items. Your rune pouch is safe.
