Will the teleport tablet be scaled the same as uniques on the mass worlds for normal nightmare kills? Or will it have a base rate regardless of party size.
Why does Jagex insist on reusing content instead of making unique content?
We want to make unique content too! But it takes a lot longer, we hope something that is a fairly quick turnaround such as Phosani's and ToB modes should provide some decent content while we have time to develop other completely fresh content.
I will reiterate that this fight in particular will feel quite different than regular nightmare, so it's not like you're just killing the same boss but with bigger numbers.
why don t you just fix existing issues with nightmare ?
In the blog we talk about regular nightmares drop table receiving changes too, as well as the teleport being potentially added to the drop table which will help somewhat.
So there are two of the "issues" being fixed, did you have more suggestions?
Why is the teleport being put at the ladder and not at the entrance of the Sanctuary? There's no reason to not make it closer to the boss area even for lore reasons.
We still want it to be a bit of a walk to discourage a PoH tele meta, but this should alleviate the walk somewhat as it is a tad long atm.
Hmmm yes, better loot, faster kills, teleport to boss...
Another disappointing proposal. Can't wait for this to get voted in, and make the boss even more farm-able.
This fight in particular will feel quite different than regular Nightmare, so it's not like you're just killing the same boss. It's faster because the fight is going to hopefully be more engaging, but that comes at the cost of it being more difficult too!
I understand that. But the people farming this 24/7 atm, either through bots or regular goldfarmers, will just move onto farming the hard version, with a direct 20% increase in uniques, not a problem for them.
And I'd be fine with this, I understand a harder version of the same content might be enticing to some people. But the inclusion of, what is essentially a boss teleport just rubs me the wrong way. That was one of this bosses "features", not every boss needs to be easily accessible, putting some time/effort to reach a boss is fine.
I know Jagex is already doing something similar with God wars as well, introducing items/perks with the new PVM achievement diaries to make it easier to farm bosses, but it's honestly just easyscape hiding behind a mask of "qol improvements".
We've purposefully split the question offering a teleport so if it's something that isn't wanted, it can be voted against.
We will also be making changes based on feedback, as we do with all poll blogs :)
What if the nightmare or only phosani's dropped some untradeable teleport scrolls instead? With the medal it just makes the 1 million gp boat added before not that useful
Definitely open to feedback changes on all aspects of the blog. I've seen similar suggestions around the untradeable teleport scrolls.
What do you think about having something like that drop, but if you gather a certain amount you can unlock a permanent teleport option instead? All still untradeable ofc!
