Yeah, like its any better that they literally make it by their own hands few years ago to be a saradomin demon (??) and call it a day. They fixed their own laziness when they gave it a new model, its not some ancient content they polished.

If I remember right, it was mod Jed who was running that project and he only asked art for rewards. I thought it was a little strange lore wise but was probably very busy in another project to worry too much. The rightful backlash basically gave me and Ghost a free pass to make some cooler looking bosses, regretful we couldn’t have just done it that way to begin with… projects were managed quite differently back in those days

why not Ectofungus to avoid confusion

Fountain -> Font -> Funt -> Funtus

Fountain of Ecto(plasm) -> Ectofuntus

Ignored prayer filtering like a politician!

Ah that's my bad, singular focused sometimes with a game update call ongoing at the same time. We're having more chats about Prayer filtering, nothing I'm able to share at the moment (and I was out on Monday so missed the initial round) but when we do have something to share we'll talk about it.

Im curious, I know you have a cdn for images and the likes, isn't there anything like cms or a wysiwyg editor for the news/blog posts? What does a usual(no issues/rev) flow look like, from editorial to release?

We're able to use WYSIWYG for the most part but don't really have particular editor internally that we've smoothed out properly. Stuff like Dreamweaver works more or less okay since it's still pretty rapid to throw the HTML together (it's not exactly complex HTML on these, after all).

Can you add in some information on when the clue stash expansion to prims, tent whip, etc would be polled to UIM?

We don't deserve mod Goblin, thanks for the time.

Hoping we'll perhaps be able to slip some UIM-only questions in for those with Poll 79

this may have been answered before, but I'm assuming GM will still require full completion right?

Of course!

Will we get a blog out this week?

I doubt it! Writing a blog from scratch, having the team read over it and sign off, then having Editorial read over it and adjust, HTMLing the blog for upload, imagery etc. is an extremely tight turnaround for two days.

The Ironman Tutor will now pay attention if you previously indicated you never wanted to downgrade while informing you about Iron mode. He’s also got more information to share about Unranked Group Ironmen!

So it's no longer possible for people to deiron by becoming a GIM first? My buddy wanted to do that and today became GIM. Is he now screwed?

The only thing that's changed as far as I'm aware is that the Tutor's messaging has been clarified, none of the functionality has been changed - purely the wording, so that things are a little clearer for players.

No more hours spent right clicking and identifying!

You can't be serious. You can't be joking too.🙄

I didn't actually write this blog but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's definitely a joke!

Nothing on the servers or prayer filtering? I’m a little disappointed, I can’t lie.

I'm hoping we'll be able to provide an update on the server issues soon, and will likely get the Game Status page updated alongside other socials out when we have more that we're able to share.

Any news on adding Artio, Spindel and Calvarion to the hiscores? I though they were getting added this week.

Think there was a mix-up with getting the HiScores ready for this change in QA, we're hoping to be able to deploy it soon and can only apologise for its omission this week.

Really keen to see the Poll 79 questions, its definitely going to invogorate my interest in CA's, even if i'll still likely never finish Grandmasters it'll be cool to have Masters more available without things I don't enjoy as much having to be done, by instead knocking out GM tasks i'm capable of.

Think I'll be making a start on the Poll 79 blog later today, Points-based CAs are for sure the most exciting bit but there's a little something for everybody in there!

Kinda wish it was explained what "adjusted the respawn rate of veins on the upper and lower levels of MLM" means exactly.

Have updated the blog to reflect, but for your benefit the respawn rates should be about 33% quicker than pre-update!

Ectofuntus or Ectofunctus?

It's Ectofuntus and idc what anybody says


Hey all, another somewhat quiet one as so many of us are working away on things like the new skill, Bounty Hunter, Desert Treasure II and more (no spoilers).

In any case, hopefully anybody who still needs their Prospector kit for Falador Hard, or wants that juicy 85 Mining before stepping back into TOA will have a nicer time of it from today (assuming Motherlode Mine is your chosen method).

In case you missed it, we've put out a handful of other things recently that I'll link below:

Jagex Accounts Closed Beta Expansion - Blog
Bounty Hunter Initial Rewards - ...

This week we've hit the motherlode with a wrap on all of the changes from Poll 78.

We believe this issue should now be resolved, thank you for your patience everyone. And please let us know if you continue to have issues with the launcher closing on startup.
