Recently got back into the game due to the mobile release. Honestly this is the perfect platform for me to be able to enjoy this game on and I'm digging it. I dont have time to tether myself to a pc or tv set to play a game so mobile is great.

Nice job Jagex. "Accidentally" added a twisted bow (the second most expensive item in the game) spawner next to the farming guild and QA team somehow "missed" it in testing.

For an hour, Jagex promised they would deal with the problem "manually" even though countless tbows were sold on the GE and bought and plunged their price to 500m and lower. What would be done with all the other items in the GE going wild? Items bought with t-bow selling proceeds? Will items bought from someone selling a t-bow be refunded or are they just out of the game?

Instead of turning the game off when they noticed a tbow spawning on the ground, they said "nah we need to keep the game going so we don't ruin the online experience. We're gonna block it with some trees as a hotfix." So they kept it on for an hour, now it's shut down, now they're saying they're gonna deal with the problem with a roll-back, finally.

Do they test updates anymore? First they "update" with poincurses that turns every stackable item into max cash when you get killed in PvP, then they change it so you can save your autosaved spell with a staff, but they broke all staffs from being able to autocast or cast spells at all!
It's nice to see that Jagex hasn't changed.

I used to play, but I went old, old school. Played back when it was first released around 2001/2002, and stopped around that same time. Why I thought it was so fulfilling clicking on rocks for ore constantly I'll never know. Griefing newbies by luring them out to the wilderness was fun though

Vote on a new skill?

Add new skills without developing what already exists? Guess they haven't learned from OS3.

I've never gotten into the post-game side activities of OsRunescape (Godwars, Kalphite Queen, etc.); I was always a scrictly dedicated Quester and coal-miner. However I got bored recently and logged back into an account where I had finished all the F2P content so I decided to get membership for a few months. Anyone mind recommending me some side activities to build towards?

Check out the achievement diaries. There are four levels of difficulty and there is a dedicated set of diaries for every zone in the game, e.g. Desert, Falador, Wilderness, etc. Each step requires some task, skill, or quest to complete and you get some nice rewards from finishing them.

This also ruins a famous quest in Pollnivneach called The Feud, where you are asked to find the nephew of Ali Morissane, who is also named "Ali". This turns into a wild goose chase as everyone in Pollnivneach is named Ali as well.

Only a matter of time before they turn their eye towards OSRS

I was really excited to hear about the mining and smithing rework a while back since smithing was always my favorite skill, but even OSRS has changed so much from what I played as a kid that it would just make me sad.

Oh lawd, well I guess it was coming considering where Jagex is based. "Various NPCs in Karamja have been given more appropriate titles." I have no clue what this could be referring to. Are they suggesting that depicting low-tech tribal societies is offensive?

If they try this in osrs I bet it'll fail the poll but be pushed through anyway.

Apparently "Savage" and "Tribesman" are imperialistic no no speech. They had to become even more generic crap like "Wandering Warrior"

After the loss of the "Ali" joke the biggest loss is Sliske's "I identify as a scalie" comment if you ask him to seduce a dragonkin. The furries were fine with it but some exceptional individual redditor thought it was a reference to the attack helicopter meme and thus it is verboten in social justice land.

In brighter news Archaeology is in about a month and that might be cool maybe. Please don't fuck it up Jagex.

How long until they change the Gypsy and Merchant?

Real glad I quit playing it years ago. God forbid you poke a harmless jab at anyone who isn't a straight white male, like naming every character in Middle East stand-in the same name. It's like these demographics who complain about this shit have skin as thin and frail as a sheet of paper that's been left out in a thunderstorm.
