I've spoken to Mod Husky about this. The Konar area would be saved on the stored task. The player can then get another black demon task from any slayer master whether that is Konar or Duradel. Demonic Gorillas dont exist as a task by themselves, they can just be killed on Black Demon tasks. Hope that clears everything up? :) Let me know if you have any other questions.

If I store a Konar task for Bloodvelds in the Slayer Tower and then take it out with Duradel, does it just become a standard Duradel Bloodveld task or does it retain the Konar specifics, including points?

Inversely if I stored a Duradel Bloodveld task and took it out as Konar would she assign me a random location?

If so, could you abuse the system to store and unstore Konar tasks for a new location?

Hey Bloog, absolutely can help with that. The master you take the task out from wouldn't matter. It'll still retain everything from the previous master who assigned it such as area restrictions or points. It wouldn't be abusable in this regard, but thank you for raising that point. Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll poke Mod Husky. :)

Some nice changes, but gotta say I’m a good bit disappointed there was nothing about some better blood rune options for ironmen. As more irons get ToB weapons, more are discovering how unsustainable scythe and sang are. 99rc just isn’t enough blood runes for the life of an account, and as rare and end-game as scythe/sang are, it sucks they have a very finite life, lest you want to be stuck in a 3hr rc per 1hr scythe/sang loop forever, which is vastly worse than any other ironman resource gathering time spent in the game.

After bloods run out it becomes shopscape for irons, and they are still only as sustainable as your coin stack, and it’s highly annoying hoping worlds buying bloods at that.

Some great suggestions have been made in this sub, from blood rune packs, to ability to trade in ToB uniques or other uniques (at say half their GE value so it wouldn’t damage the main economy) for blood runes, an additional blood rc perk to make higher amounts of untradable blood runes for weapons at 99rc, etc.

I was really hoping to see something to resolve this in the poll blog.

Completely understand. When collecting player suggestions for Poll 75 we definitely came across that one. We've got a better way to get blood runes in mind with a new piece of content later this year, we're not ready to share too much about it yet though, but rest assured, we're aware of your gripes! :)

The wording of the blog is slightly incorrect (my bad on that) so just tweaking it now.

In short, we're not disabling the message box entirely, we're removing one of them.

It goes:
Mesbox -> You've found a hidden tunnel (press space to continue)
Player choice -> Enter yes/no

We're changing it to:
Titled player choice -> You've found a hidden tunnel, Would you like to enter, yes/no

Will correct this in a few mins, thanks for raising it. :)

Poll Question #36: Should we allow players to disable the message box warning when entering a Barrows tunnel?

Will this mean that when entering a barrows mound, the left click option will be changed or is this for the second time around? Since if removed, will you always go down to the tunnel since you don't know which brother is the tunnels you try searching the sarcophagi.

Vulnerability - Defence reduction 10% -> 15%

Make curses great again. Should make it even better at callisto, pest control and chambers.

Hey there, I worded to Blog slightly wrong on the Barrows question, sorry about that. I've fixed it up to better clarify...

We're not disabling the message box entirely, we're removing one of them.

It currently goes:

Mesbox -> You've found a hidden tunnel (press space to continue)Player choice -> Enter yes/no

And instead, we're proposing changing it to: Titled player choice -> You've found a hidden tunnel, Would you like to enter, yes/no.

Hope that makes better sense? Sorry for the initial confusion.

I've noted feedback on the Tome of Water separately. Thank you! :)

Health regen would apply immediately and would only happen if there's nobody in the Cave. Full reset will happen after 3 minutes of no activity. I can also tweak it in the Blog too to further clarify this. :) Thank you for raising it!

Great poll. However, the theater of blood change is a little backwards with regards to mvp.

The nylo room is currently “fair”. As long as your team completes the room, everyone had a similar chance at mvp due to the boss being even. However, with the proposed change to the small nylo counting towards mvps, it will actually incentivize bad play. Magers will not mass freeze non-mage crabs, clearing single aggros in the middle will become inefficient for mvps, and (haven’t thought enough about this one) I imagine some rolls will just beat out others (looking at ranged).

Maiden, however, has the completely opposite problem for mvps. The freezers/magers/chinners are a crucial part of completing the room, yet they are rewarded no additional damage in the room for doing so. It incentives people to ignore the mechanics of the room and damage the boss.

Basically, this nylo change should be rethought to affect the maiden room and not pass the poll.

Side note: would you consider removing the random poison splats from xarpus in duos? It would make duos slightly easier, but way more consistent if you have the skill for all the rooms.

Thank you so much for the feedback guys. It turns out I worded this in the Blog incorrectly, so I really apologise for that. I've altered the wording of the Blog to truly reflect the proposal so please do check that out. In short, we'd propose making damage towards nylocas in the Maiden and Verzik rooms to count towards MvP participation, but this would not be the case in Nylocas room itself. Hopefully that clears up any issues, please let me know if you have any questions! :)

Imagine 2 big aggros in the middle as opposed to barraging clumps etc.

Hey there, turns out I worded this in the blog slightly incorrectly so I'm really sorry on that. I've updated the Blog to better reflect the idea, but the tldr is that we're proposing Nylocas damage counts towards MvP participation in the Maiden and Verzik rooms, but not the Nylocas room itself. Hopefully that clears up everything and I'm really sorry for that oversight. Let me know if you have any questions :)

- Antipoison - 13.5 Herblore XP
- Super Antipoison - 20 Herblore XP
-Antidote+ - 26.5 Herblore XP.

Hopefully that brings it more in line with player expectations, let me know how you feel about it :)

I've asked for a bit of clarification from the dev team on this and Mod Husky has confirmed that it will work like Zulrah, so the first one you mentioned. I will try to clarify this in the Blog when we have had our feedback meeting if it's confusing for players. :)

Why are you making us wait until later in the year to solve a problem that exists right now? You could add blood rune packs easily, and it's not like they can't co-exist with whatever other content you'd like to add.

The honest answer is because we would like to address this problem in a more suitable way. It shouldn't really come under QoL tweaks (wouldn't be fair to you to do that) and we have ideated a way in which we could look to resolve this issue in future. I am really sorry for the wait on this one but we definitely hear your feedback on it.

Hey there! We discussed this as a team but decided not to poll this for now, because an Axe isn't necessary to complete the room, unlike how it works in the Guardians room with the pickaxe and the Crabs room with the Hammer. We're open to reconsidering this in the future if lots of players would want this changed, though. :)

Love all the CM changes in this poll (900kc uim no dust btw), just wondering if we can get an axe spawn @ mutta - in line with ice demon, crabs, guards (now).

Aswell as guaranteed scavenger drops (CM only), this would save the bigger teams who like to prep time, and allow them to join in the fun content (the rooms) anyone who kills scavs will often miss ice/shamans due to scavengers not dropping the correct secondaries. (just feels like a pointless rng fest killing scavs for 2-5 minutes when 10 kills could sort a whole mass team out.

Thank you so much for the feedback! :) In regards to your first point, we considered this suggestion as part of Poll 75, but we decided not to poll it since an axe isn't necessary to complete the room. For the Guardians room you do need a pickaxe and the same goes for a Hammer in the Crabs room so we felt that we were more on board with those ones. We are open to reconsidering our stance in the future though if more players want this, but this is just a response to explain our line of thinking.

Hope that's alright but let me know your thoughts :)

What if it didn't scatter them, but instead it cleansed/purified them 'cos they're demonic?
Some sort of Urn, 'cos ashes.

Urn of cleansing/purging/absolution etc etc whatever etc

Lots of good stuff. Some questions.

Q#26: Ive heard a comparison to zulrah for how the damage would work, is this accurate?

Q#24/25: To give an example, I think changing the vanguard reset % threshold, their HP amount, and their defense all in one sweeping change was possibly too aggressive. I hope the changes to mutt (mainly) arent super aggressive. That being said I do think an adjustment is needed.

I dont have much of the same worries for vasa, but removing all stat increases from the crystals may be too much as you always have 2 specs (claws) and max str for the crystals.

Yes - Question #26 is proposing a similar way to Zulrah on how Vanguard currently works regarding the transition phases. :)

Noting your points about the tweaks explained in Question 24/25 as feedback, we will discuss this as a team on Friday and on Monday. Thank you!

Hey guys, very sorry for the confusing wording of the Blog. I've spoken to Mod Husky and we've tweaked the explanation a bit. Let me know what you think, and shout if you have any questions:

'We can also allow pending damage on the Vanguards at the moment they transition to instead carry through even if they are transitioning, so you can kill them faster. If this change is implemented, the damage will occur once the transition finishes (similar to pending damage on Zulrah). Be careful though, as this pending damage can still trigger a reset once the transition is over!'

I lol'd at crunchy wrap

So for the Tome of Water, I kind of made a mistake by phrasing it in the Blog as if it was an awesome buff, when in reality it was something we forgot to Poll in the last Blog. (!)

We'll consider options to buff the Tome of Water separately at some point in the future if there's enough player feedback to warrant it. Hope that's alright.

Idk, I think splash damage and Tome of Water sound hand-in-hand.
