I'm willing to pay even more if Jagex improves their support and anti-cheating team :)

Bit harsh...

Our Customer Satisfaction rating continues above the industry average (of 81%) at 87% Satisfied - that's from those who actually use Player Support, and we introduced Ban Appeals to give those hijacked at the time of the ban the opportunity to get their accounts back if they actively want to play.

We know Account Recovery is a pain, and we're actively working with tech teams to improve it.

On anti cheating - we've actually doubled the team in the last 2 years and seen the bot numbers halve in OSRS - and game engine are working on additional improvements to bot detection - as OSRS is on an older game engine than RS3, it's easier to bot, and harder to catch them - hence why we put more people into it.

Apologies, I’ll keep that in mind for the future. I just wanted to lay out my entire thought process behind the question; unfortunately it turned into a giant wall of text.

If needed, I can still provide a TLDR if you would like?

Na dw, I really like the question so I'm up for spending the time on it

Any plans on doing something more unique with Ornament Kits?

You currently have a transmogrification system in OSRS via Ornament Kits. Most of these kits are obtained through Treasure Trail rewards but they could have a far greater potential.

As we are progressing in PvM, the only way we are currently incentivizing players to do the content is by creating a higher GP/hr since adding uniques generally translates to power creep.

Currently, the general consensus does not want there to be more power creep and in the same breathe we need to do something about the constant GP/hr rise in PvM as more content is released.

My proposition is to introduce NEW Ornament Kits as a unique, untradable, reward to players that have gone above and beyond in specific PvM and PvP content.

A way to implement this for PvM would be via the Kill Count (KC) mechanic we have in OSRS. Currently, there is a KC progression reward system after completi...

Will do my best to get this question in, but for what it's worth, please try to provide a TLDR in the future as this is more time than we can afford asking a single question

Hi Atom_Cats,

We were aware of an issue affecting a few of the worlds earlier today, but this has since been resolved. If you're still experiencing problems accessing the game, submit a ticket so we can look into this for you.

We ban them as soon as they pop up. For what it's worth, reporting them in-game and sending evidence to tipoff@jagex.com is more effective than posting to reddit.

This recent drama seems to have happened around 3am BST. I'm looking into it now.

To clarify, we aren't the internet police. We can't protect player's IPs, all we can do is recommend they do their best to protect them. Often times we see players leaking their IP through a means they were unaware of, claiming it hasn't been leaked etc.

That being said, we'll look into this as much as we can and if we can find any credible evidence, we'll take action accordingly - which, if I might add, we have done so in the past many times. This whole reverse psychology thing of 'this happened but jmods won't do anything about it lol' doesn't help anyone. We'll do as much as we possibly can.

Blood Defender was its original name, with the original thought to be using a special vial of blood on it but that felt a bit odd. We're definitely open to changing naming around, that's no biggie. Just need to find something that appeals to everyone.

Hey just wanted to say that I love watching your modelling parts on the osrs stream. This character and the raids female protagonist look really cool so far!

Thanks, it seems to have gone well so far. Can't wait to show you all what we have planned over the next few months. I'm really excited about it, I hope you will be too.


This is a skillful realization of the Maiden, it goes to show there is so much talent out there in our community. I'd love to see more, thanks for sharing this with us.

The animation is for the pet, not the boss.


But it’s a new model with a new animation?

Looks very much like this?

That's actually the image that inspired the design of the doors in the quest. You can see the finished ones here

Is it talking to some guy, telling you have the requirements, and getting him an item to open a door to fight a dragon?

Nah. This time you have to open two doors.


why is ds2 a grandmaster quest if anyone can do it?

You're assuming that everyone who starts it will be able to complete it. The quest is a little bit more than just talking to some guy and telling him you have the requirements.

1 Quest in what, 4 years?

It was never really a quest that was regularly brought up about unfinished quest lines either, it was just a seemingly random "here's MM2".

Most of the questions are about the Troll, Menaphos/Sophanem, Myreque, Zaros, Elf and Ogre story lines and their unfinished areas that are just giant black squares or blocked off areas (I know empty spaces have gotten some attention recently, but for the most part questions were involving them).

1 Quest in what, 4 years?

It was only last year that the team got big enough to be able to deliver content on the scale of Monkey Madness II. We've started working on a lot more quests since then as you'll have already started seeing.

This is very generous of you. You better make sure its not your own F2P account you are giving it to :P

My question was if this feature was already a thing in 2004. I know it exists since 2006 atleast.

Yes as far as I recall (similar behaviour).


If you enter a name that is invalid / already taken the account creation on the website will suggest names you could use :)
